Question Time Commentary

Fairly sure Mrs Rebel came back from Australia with it just after Christmas and we both went down with a very short term fever and cough approx 48 hours.
Funny you should say that. My nephew who’s missus works with many Chinese students came down with something weird just after Christmas. Uncontrollable temperature and severe shortness of breath. He very nearly died. Wouldn’t be surprised if the records turn up some unusual figures when this all pans out.
rebel- with-a-cause, I’m sure I may have said before. Your Avatar generates wood in my furry bits. I’m not gay by the way and have no interest in sheep, rabid dogs, Welsh women, Police women, fat lipped pouters, gender neutral anything’s or anything odd.

Despite being supposedly innoculated from the flu, I had a very strange (didn't feel like flu) bedding-down with something which involved a high fever, headaches, muscle pain and no chest problems at all in Jan/Feb. I'd met a chap from Germany on my boat a bout a week before, and he'd been touring Europe in the previous weeks. Just a suspicion, of course; nobody else in my family had any symptoms.

New virus or not. Chances are it's been on the go for eight weeks. Are we totally overhyping this? Is this the biggest wah in history?
According to the experts, no. Big no. Reported this morning on R4, ICL have put out projections of how no actions against the virus would affect death rates. 400,000,000. Oops, just call me Goebbels, I've inadvertently done a Dresden. That's FORTY million, not four hundred million.

Have you been getting your figures from Diane Abbott? Try knocking off a zero (as they used to say on aircraft carriers in the Pacific during WW2).

Guido's been at it again... Dug up a tweet from Horton (who spent half the QT last night lambasting the Govt response), where he's recommending caution.


Not exactly surprising, he came on the show like a man on a mission, who wasn't about to allow trivial things like facts get in the way of a good rant.

I'm already working on Horton's response: so far 'nuance', 'taken out of context' and 'selective quoting' appear several times.

We need to get the same tests that Russia is using.

The infection and death rate would both go down to levels of ‘nothing to see here’ :)
 
Ah yes, Yvette ‘I support the government, but can’t help myself with the snide points scoring statements’ Cooper.

She’ll add a lot to the debate, I’m sure.
 
Yvette admits she doesn't understand.

You simply can't teach some people, you can only leave them better informed.
