Sadly these people are too far down the conspiracy rabbit hole to reason with. I would advise anyone not to comment on their channels or enter into debate with them. It is a pointless exercise and they and their subscribers only see such interaction as "government agents" trying to discredit them.

Back to the soccer argument; first I am not defending the excessive salaries paid to some players and abhor the very poor business practices of a significant number of clubs. However I'd like to make these points:

It appears that many footballers really do want to contribute significantly and many already give time and money to charity. It appears their concern is what would happen to the 30% - would it just disappear into the balance sheet? Their alternative appears to be a specific fund, again funded by the 30%, which genuinely goes into key charities/NHS and is used transparently.

The argument about reduced income tax is valid - you earn less, you pay less and therefore the exchequer has less to spend - same argument over GiftAid but that's another discussion.

Lastly, French sports channel Canal+ has just withheld a multimillion payment to the French league. Their viewers are seeing no football, are pausing or cancelling subscriptions and therefore the channel has no money to pay up. I bet Sky/BT have had the same discussion behind closed doors. No money coming in - and it's tv money that pays for so much - no money to pay out.

Like most things it's not a simple equation.

The football situation isn't simple now, but it should have been. My main issue is there are employees of some clubs being furloughed (and therefore being funded by the taxpayer), whilst the players are unaffected. If said clubs had all done an internal deal in private, with players taking a (% wise) small pay cut to stop anyone being furloughed, I don't think we'd have heard anymore about it. Personally, I'd be happy with that. However, it's all getting out of hand now.

I'm sure everyone sympathises with your loss and I for one am very sorry to hear of it.

This is the Covid19 thread though, which is precisely what is being discussed.

I've just been for a walk with my son and we spent half an hour playing Pooh sticks. Did I break the rules? I suspect I did, but two different sets of police officers walked past and one of them actually joined in (we beat her :win:).
With just the slightest bit of finesse, I might have made a little less mess.

On a similar note, I spoke to a cyclist today - she was in the same shop I was in, & I asked her (from about 10 feet away so most of the shop probably heard us) just out of curiosity, "how far are you going today for your cycle?"

"Oh, about 40 miles."

We're not allowed to cover that distance in a car just now.

What worries me is how much divide this is causing. 'I'm right', 'no I am'.

Social media is absolutely toxic. Probably one of the best and worst things to happen to mankind. Brings out the very worst in people.

Why can't we just listen, stay indoors for the time instructed and treat one another with a bit of respect?

I hope everyone on here is staying safe.

40 miles for a weekend bike ride is fairly normal, 40 miles in a car is not exercise. We can debate the possible demands of either on the emergency services if you like. I don't think either breach the rules on social distancing.

Isn’t there something ironic about people moaning about telecoms engineers installing telecoms and internet infrastructure and videoing them on their mobile phones and uploading it to YouTube and social media ?

Don't worry I have a hospital worker (radiographer if I recall) living near me and she still has her boyfriend visiting twice a week. Wife won't let me get involved as it's sends her into panic attacks.

No P45 and not even a fine. Astonishing.

40 miles as you say is about right, but that's not what I'm getting at. We are allowed out for what, 1 hours exercise a day. How many cyclists can cycle 40 miles in 1 hour? We're not talking about a normal weekends worth of cycling either, we're in the midst of a Covid 19 lockdown, the cyclist I was speaking to knew this but was still intent on following their 'normal' weekend bike ride routine.

Neither driving or cycling breach the rules on social distancing either, unless the cyclists are riding side by side, which I've witnessed a lot more of now the roads are quieter.

So my comparison in the car is that you're more likely to bring unwanted attention if you drive for 40 miles, but not if you do it by bike. It's not acceptable to drive 40 miles, but it is to bike it, even though you'd have to be Sir Chris Hoy to do it, because it cannot be done in 1 hour. Yes, it's exercise, but it's more than 1 hour's worth.

I don't agree that we're not allowed out for a leisurely drive, if your start and finishing points are your home address - you're not visiting anyone etc, just driving to wile away the hours. I do understand the reasoning behind it though & have accepted it.

People will manipulate the rules to suit their own needs & justifications, as has been evident over the last 11 or so days - dreading the review when it rolls around. If people are still behaving like this this far in to the lockdown, I dread to think what decisions the Government are going to be forced to make.

Looks like they may have found a virus cure for Covid19 - Chloroquine, this is good news but I advise people to check out the side affects from it as it can cause a reduction in a persons immune system and also can be a risk to those with heart conditions, so although good caution I guess is needed like with most medications.

One of the problems with that is that Covid 19 is already a major risk to anyone on immunosupressants anyway, (hence the shielding / 12 week isolation) so it's unlikely that if it is used as a treatment it'll be administered to this particular group.

I'm no expert, but further compromising an already compromised immune system doesn't seem a logical choice.

Yes it does as that's how the idiot experts on social media, search social media, cherry picking information and claim there is a cure out there and other idiots of social media believe them.

Wait til the World Health Organisation make an official announcement.
