    No, I was just pointing out that it's not straightforward, that's all.

    Whereas Belgium acted quickly on all those, yet their death rate per million is far, far worse than the UK's.

    Yes, I think June is when things will start to happen. As you say, it remains to be seen how wise that will be. Hopefully, it's not too much too soon. And a lot of Covidiots will take the P**s, of course.

    How to complete the season

    You've read my posts before, I see. :) Seriously, guys, I was just putting forward an opinion on how things might play out. The IFR is likely to be low, we're getting to know more about how the disease works as time goes by, better at saving people's lives, and those in charge will be looking...

    I never implied that lockdown would be lifted so quickly and, more importantly, I never said that it should be or that it was OK to just let people die. All I said was that I think things will happen more quickly than some seem to think.

    And you also know damn well that's not what I'm saying too. For f**k's sake.

    So I guess my point is that I believe we'll slowly move from lockdown into a position that's more about shielding the vulnerable. I think things will return to normal much more quickly than some others seem to.

    Indeed. The studies I'm reading (note studies, not journalism) estimate a maximum of just over 1% and most are in that 0.5% area.

    Seriously, what proportion of the population do you think this thing is going to kill?

    My answers to those questions would be: Are you suggesting any other government might have done better in this unknown situation? Yes. Do you think this government has handled this whole situation wrongly? Yes. Has the government done anything right in this crisis? Yes - realising it got...

    Aston Villa 2 Oxford Utd 2 Milk Cup Semi-Final 1st leg 1986

    I was 15 at the time. My friend and I travelled up with a couple of my dad's friends. It was a great night. Most vivid memories are, of course, the penalty, then how long it took to get out of the car park afterwards! Still got the programme.

    Aye, I reckon you could be right. The sense of English exceptionalism has blighted many things over the past years and I suspect it could be the case in football, too. Realistically, I think it increasingly unlikely this season can be finished. We're into May tomorrow, so there just won't be...

    Second Second comment on this thread was me saying, "Couldn't agree more." I was badly wrong. Without the fuss even more would be dead. While I think the eventual IFR will be low, the fact that it's so contagious makes it much more serious.
