There are no facts any more—it's all fake news and propaganda

 WEEK 1      the Past is what the Future once was

 
Mob rule
One-third of people admit breaking the locko rules, pollsters have found. This means, according to the office psychologist, that two-thirds to three-quarters of people have actually done it.

tick symbol Barnard Castle is set to become Britain's No. 1 tourist destination on the strength of the endorsement from Dangerous Dom Cummings. One small problem—visitors will be in danger of being harassed by old gits with nothing better to do.

reader comment“Why didn't they let the Operation Midland crew loose on Dangerous Dom? They'd have had him stitched up with credible & true lies in no time flat!” R.W.
reader comment“Time to revive: 'do you want cheese with that whine?'” T.S.

cross symbol Letting motorists off the requirement to have an up-to-date MOT certificate is putting death on the roads, we are assured, because people with dodgy cars are taking advantage of their licence to roam.

reader comment“Hong Kong Chinese to be the new Ugandan Asians now that the mainland waxworks have called a halt to any pretence of allowing democracy and dissent there?” F.K.

tick symbol If everything is copper-plated, the world will be saved from the Chinese plague as copper has such strong antibacterial and antifungal properties that contaminants are neutralized in under 4 hours.

bulletQ: If you're a priest, what's the world's worst excuse for chopping a bloke's head off with an axe @ your shrine in India?
bulletA: Claiming a goddess told you to do it in a dream to bring an end to the Chinese pandemic.

Kerching! The EbloodyU's negotions guy, M. Barnier, is trying talk himself into 2 more years of employment and gouge tens of BILLIONs of pounds out of the pockets of British taxpayers by talking up a 2-year extension to the transition, which runs out on December 31st this year. President Boris, though, is having none of it;.

bulletQ: How does an online gambling giant dodge a £3.5 million fine for misconduct?
bulletA: Dive through a legal loophole.

reader comment“The best reason for not firing Dangerous Dom is that it would give the lazy, looney left a big break.” P.I.

donkeyGiving fake news a bad name
Are we surprised that a Dangerous Dom snitch also went for an extended drive despite locko rules? Or that one of the snitches has admitted making his story up? And is now claiming that it was all a joke? Are we surprised that the 'protesters' who ignored locko to make a nuisance of themselves @ Dangerous Dom's home included a looney-left rent-a-mob contingent? Not even a little bit.

reader comment“If Dangerous Dom goes, everyone else who infringed locko must go, MPs, boffins and all—in the name of fairness. Like that's going to happen, though.” R.W.

squashedNot even trying
If that's the best the Wiltshire crop-tramplers can do to create a CoCO19 virus particle [right], they need to head back to the drawing board and stay there. Our Xpert reckons it looks more like a squashed amoebum's grandma.

Purely temporary phenomenon
Bike shops have been doing a roaring trade since locko began. Bikes for sale on eBay will be multitudinous, the Xperts reckon, when people return to their old, idle ways.

Bum-bum, bum-bum, BUM-BUM!
Go on holiday to Spain and what will happen to you? You'll be eaten by a shark. The lack of human bodies in the sea off Spain's beaches has bought the top-of-the-food-chain predators flocking to the beaches of the Mediterranean coast, fish-counters reckon, in case humans come back and start providing snack opportunities again.

reader comment“No surprise that Mad Mandy of the Sunday Post is blaming Dangerous Dom for single-handedly demolishing democracy in Britain. [While Mandy is attempting to build dimocracy? Ed.] He's also accused of politically disillusioning her son, the poor little stinker, who's a gap-year 22-year-old. But if you get paid for confecting faux outrage, it's a living.” N.S.

Hope springs eternal
This year, next year, never—the Xperts are all busy laying their bets on when, or if, a vaccine for the Chinese plague will be found. Some guy will get lucky. The losers will all have to look around for another reputation-builder.

bulletGood News! Scotland is enjoying a heat wave.
bulletBad News: It brought the midges out in force. Figures.

Pretty much swings and roundabouts
The latest apocalypse warning is that unless humans turn vegetarian and have nothing at all to do with animals, the next pandemic will kill half of the world's population.
   On the up-side, the 3.5 BILLION people left will have a bit more elbow room and broadband speeds will go up with less competition for access to the system.
reader comment“Another positive spin-off is that with one-half of the population gone, everyone will become twice as rich and no one will be able to plead poverty ever again.” M.I.

They never will be missed
One of our correspondents was remarking on the lack of calls from phone scammers—the computer voice pretending to be BT cutting off your broadband, etc. He was expecting lots of them whilst everyone was locked down at home. But nothing.
    Which left him hoping that the Chinese plague has croaked all the scumbags with the phone-scammer gene.
updateRelax, they haven't gone away. Another correspondent reported a really weird artificial female voice going on about a free boiler scam.

bullet The must-have gadget of the moment is a shooting stick, if you're allowed to visit someone in their garden but you're not allowed to sit on anything.

green carCrooks’ Bonanza
Take a car for a test drive and there's no one from the showroom allowed to be in it. Expect insurance companies to shove rates up considerably using as their excuse, the small number of drivers who know how to disable the GPS tracker and who will keep on going.

tick symbol The city council of Yamato in Japan is considering making illegal the antisocial act of wandering about with your eyes fixed on a pocket phone instead of where you're going. Good on them if they do it!

bullet Oh, dear! How are the bitching buggers going to survive when Dangerous Dom decides that his mission to deliver Brexit and melt the waxworks of the civil service has been completed and it's time to look for a new challenge?

dinosaur 50p coinThe Royal Mint’s latest gimmick . . .
. . . is a set of 3 x 50p coins with colour pictures of dinosaurs on them. The packaging includes a data chip which can be scanned with a pocket phone using the Royal Mint app for further information on the dinosaurs—facts, video clips and pictures.

bullet Fire-fighters in the North-West are getting plenty to do in the hot, dry weather, which has brought to the moors of Lancashire the usual plague of arsonists and idiots who fail to Xtinguish their portable barbeque. The litter louts were also out in force.

tick symbol Before the weather broke, the police were having a great time, confiscating beer and portable barbequeues by the ton. Happy times when the shift ended and all that loot needed to be disposed of?

No place like it
25% of home 'workers' have found that there is no need to get out of bed if they're just rattling the keyboard of a laptop. Xcept for trips to the fridge, of course, and also the bathroom to make room for more out of the fridge.
    Getting on for one-third of the new breed of toilers 'think' they are more productive (no proof on offer, though) and half of the locko labourers prefer it to going out to work.

tick symbol Cars manufactured during the formal lockdown period are set to become collectors' items. Under 200 were completed in April—the lowest total since 1944, when the nation was getting ready for D-Day in June of that year.

Far Queue symbol No surprise that the teaching unions have managed to turn the return to school of some of the nation's kids into a shambles and some of the self-proclaimed Xperts are telling us that unlocko is as bad an idea as locko was in the first place.
Far Queue symbol London's cosmetic mayor is still doing his best to prevent people from using public transport apart from Boris Bikes. The SadGeek's big problem is that he is unable to give his predecessor the credit for introducing them.

the sunFalls over in excitement and breaks a leg
The sunniest spring on record? Wow! Impressive! Well, not that impressive if you realize that the records go back only as far as 1929. And if this is the product of climate change, how come it's getting wetter and cooler as the week goes on? The climate doesn't change that fast.

bullet Chinese employees who fail to reach their sales target have to eat live worms. The same, unfortunately, does not apply to the waxworks running the country. Who would just shift the goalposts anyway.

Gloss to loss
You have to wonder about the journalistic value-for-money of 'business magazine' fforbes if they built up a 20-year-old as the world's youngest billionaire in 2018 then decided it was all a façade of flim-flam that the fforbes bean-counters failed to spot at the time.

Don’t play along
The Dangerous Dom Episode has just confirmed what we know about the Unspeakable Left. They'll always be trying to inflate nothing much into a major crisis which threatens the future existence of the human race.
    Accordingly, the best way to treat them is to look them firmly in their beady wee eyes, tell them we know Xactly what they're doing, and then infuriate them totally by ignoring them.
reader comment“In the meantime, Dangerous Dom will continue in his valuable role of Witchfinder General by going among the ungodly and attracting the bile of the unworthy?” A.C.

Simper GroanVain hope
We are being subjected to so much pious BS on TV just now that it is possible to hope that the world's supply could run out. Even knowing that life just ain't like that.
    Simper Groan, our meeja correspondent [right], assures us that there is an infinite amount of hypocrisy in the universe. And that he, personally, can get a planeload flown in from anywhere on the planet if the British supply ever runs short.

reader comment“Anyone seen Pixie Balls-Couper taking her collection of Syrian refugees for a walk now that locko has been loosened?” M.F.

Far Queue symbol How many of the yobmob who made pests of themselves @ the Cummings residence in London were busted for a hate crime? None at all? How surprising!

Far Queue symbol The Spanish government intends to take court action against 17 airlines over their refusal to refund customers for cancelled flights and their attempts to keep the cash.

bullet There is now a competition on-going among local authorities to be the first to have their fief put back under full lockdown.

bullet Indulging in looting and arson are not particularly good ways of winning friends and making people value you.
reader comment“When the lootin' starts, the shootin' starts? Sounds fair enough.” B.O.
reader comment“Only members of the criminal community and their supporters could be offended by that.” H.C.

bulletQuestions we'll never have answered:
Were George Floyd's fingerprints on the phoney $20 bill he was suspected of passing?
Why were four police officers needed to arrest him?

Journalistic Junk
A criminal can't 'earn' money by burgling holiday apartments and flats, as the latest suspect in the Madeleine McCann mystery is described as doing. Cash stolen is not earned.
p.s. That 2013 E-fit picture looks a lot like former PM J. Major!

Notional Security
nondescript birdPakistani pigeons which stray into Indian air space are being zapped and busted by counter-espionage agents when they try to fly home. Despite years of mockery, the Indians continue to refuse to believe that tags bearing the phone number of the pigeon's owner are not top secret, numerically coded spy messages of world-shattering import.

bullet The world's oldest bug lives in Scotland, the Xperts have revealed, and it celebrates its 425 millionth birthday this year.

bulletQ: Is a Labour party whip breaking locko to date a bloke who's married to someone else out of the same box as Dom 'the Isolator' Cummings?
bulletA: Only if you're a card-carrying member of the looney left or Sir Kreepy Steamer.

Level playing field EbloodyU style
Typical EbloodyU—the waxworks want all British products with protected names; Melton Mowbray pies, Stilton cheese, Scotch whisky, etc.; to lose this status but they expect Champagne, Parma ham and other stuff produced on the Europeon mainland to be protected from cloning.
   Something else President Boris should say no to.

11,000,000 is the number of jobs being subsidized by the taxpayer at an expected final cost of £100,000,000,000
There is at least one Xpert willing to back absolutely any viewpoint you care to name on what is going to happen with regard to the Chinese plague in the long, medium or short term. So much for the value of Xpertise!

reader comment“Time to hand out the stun-guns and weed-whackers to reclaim the streets from parasites. Everywhere.” M.A.
reader comment“Are we really expected to believe that all these characters out in the streets have a cause? Most of them have to be bored and looking for an Xcuse to abandon locko. And the rest of the ones in the big cities are criminals out for anything that's not nailed down.” W.N.

Dead Giveaway
Geometric figures with sides 2 metres long are being offered as a means of ensuring safe spacing—squares, pentagons, hexagons, parallelograms, etc.—in parks and on beaches.
    No doubt those foolish enough to opt for a pentagon will find themselves busted under some antique law as suspected of being involved in witchcraft if the spacing police get bored.

tick symbol Staying away from people who breathe and/or talk is the best way to avoid the Chinese plague, the Xperts reckon. Touching contaminated surfaces is not considered to be a primary spreading mechanism.

bullet Wow, gosh! The police of the Metropolis have found a 'strong' connection between hot weather and locko flouting. Whoda thunk it!

bullet The Chinese government is threatening to invade Britain to chastise President Boris if he dares to offer asylum to Hong Kong residents with dual British/Chinese nationality who dare to free from the new climate of oppression in Honkers.

bullet The current Gov of the Bonk of England is talking up a no-deal separation between the UK and the EbloodyU.

Superduper computerRelief for some
The Xperts have come up with a great way to end the general lockdown—hold a national census to determine the exact age, ethnicity, medical problem status, intelligence, etc. of everyone, feed the results into a mega-computer, and let it decide which areas need to be locked down and which can enjoy freedom again.

bullet Gooble has issued a list of words which people cannot spell and they would have us believe that is it common for people to stick a superfluous 'e' on the end of potato like former US vice-president Dan 'Potatoe Head' Quayle. That is defintly [another problem word, Ed.] hard to believe.

Flood Warning signThe way ahead
Flooding is good for The Planet, the Xperts have concluded, as rivers flush zillions of tons of carbon dioxide in to the world's oceans, where it remains on lockdown for thousands of years.
    As a result, the size of the Environment agency is to be tripled and it will work toward a target of getting at least 50% of the country under water as part of an active river system by 2025.
reader comment“This is the policy which will create water shortages this summer despite a soaking wet autumn and winter last year. Water companies have been allowed to sell off reservoirs to developers so that they can put housing in areas which flood easily as part of the carbon dioxide capture strategy.” R.W.

cross symbol Shopkeepers are upsetting the banks and their allies, who want a cashless society to increase their income, by accepting actual money from customers as well as card payments in the name of staying in business.

Covid Cancels Cars
The Ministry of Communities is starting a drive to convert high streets into traffic-free zones containing a few safely spaced pedestrians looking in the windows of any shops which can do enough business to remain open.
reader comment“There will have to be extensive new medical facilities to treat safely all the foot-sloggers who have been ridden down by homicidal bikers.” F.N.

bulletQ: When does a Joint Document on the status of the former Hong Kong colony have no practical significance?
bulletA: As and when that's convenient for the mainland Chinese regime.

Far Queue symbol "The UK is not innocent"? What a load of bollocks. The UK had absolutely nothing to do with G. Floyd's demise.
reader comment“And trust a lawyer to come up with premeditated bollocks.” S.L.

reader comment“Oh, Lord, save us from kneeling coppers and all the other self-serving bollocks.” I.P.

Dream vs Reality
The idea of humanity colonizing Mars to prevent overpopulation rendering Earth uninhabitable; as zillionaire E. Musk reckons he has in store for us; is absurd. It's just unaffordable.
    Population control here is the only practical way forward. But humanity's reckless breeders, and the people making money out of them, will never let it happen.

bulletQ: How long will a shot of a vaccine for the Chinese plague stay effective?
bulletA: For no more than a year to ensure that the company which invented it gets repeat business, like the companies offering the flu jab.

bulletQ: How do you know if someone has been wearing a plague mask a lot?
bulletA: They'll probably have horrific friction acne on their face.

No-go zone still
Police officers have been reminded that an English home remains a castle. They can shout at people from the garden gate if they think they're breaking locko rules but they have no legal right to invade the property.

bullet One-third of people think the Home Sec.'s 14-day quarantine for arrivals in the UK ain't tough enuff!

bullet A former head of MI6, known as 'C' but not C for Covid when he had the job, reckons he's seen a top secret report which proves that the pandemic strain of coronavirus is man-made and it was released by accident as a result of monumental stupidity.

markerThe mystery expands
The Germans reckon they've cracked the disappearance of Madeleine McCann in Portugal 13 years ago. Their theory is that she was kidnapped and murdered by a known sex offender, who was living there, and who is currently in one of their gaols.

bulletQ: Was anyone taken in by the faked-up pictures of a strawberry-coloured or orange Moon from Friday night's penumbral eclipse?
bulletA: No one in their right mind was.

Getting very close
Our meeja correspondent, Trouty McPout, reports . . . Supporters of the Beeb's recklessly opinionated Viewsnight presenter E. Maitlis are attempting to create a new world record for complaints about a BBC programme by using a double-bubble system.
    They are issuing a complaint about the BBC's daring to notice that their employee broke impartiality rulz as well as one about the unprofessional rant which caused all the trouble.
    Just a few hundred more complaints to go and the target, and a new record, will be reached!

bullet The north of Norway is sliding in to the sea slowly but relentlessly. Gorbal warming is getting the blame.

Keeping busy
Police forces are in a keen competition to record the fastest speeder whilst the nation's roads remain relatively empty. The West Yorkshire gang are the current leaders with a radar reading of 151 mph on the M62, a good 10 mph faster than the nearest competitor.

reader comment“Issuing an edict banning locko legover created something which is so completely unenforceable that it just brought the whole locko thing into disrepute. But no doubt whoever thought of it is in line for a massive performance bonus.” K.S.

Another feast of unBritishness?
On the Last Night of the Proms, Remoaners will be standing on their doorstep, waving an EbloodyU flag when Rule, Britannia is played audienceless.
    Pulling off the concert will be a real technical triumph as the broadcast crew will have to cope with mikeing up a full orchestra, two choirs and soloists, who will have to be safely spaced around a considerable portion of the Royal Albert Hall.
    Co-ordinating the performers will be such a huge problem that the technical guys are experimenting with a system which will project an immense hologram of the conductor so that everyone can see him.

Lockdown casualty
The chairman of the UK Sadistics Authority, Sir N. Orgrove, is having trouble understanding government data on testing for the Chinese plague. Shame universities and colleges are closed or he could have gone on a course to top up his learning.

bullet 50% of the population reckon that they are operating a personal boycott of everything imported from China. Not a problem for native Chinese eateries, then. Or won't be when they are allowed to reopen.

cross symbol President Trump was mocked by the not-so-great and the not-so-good for taking hydroxychloroquine as protection against the Chinese plague. Surprise! The study published in The Lancet claiming the drug raises the risk of death for people with the plague has been withdrawn for further consideration of 'suspicious' data.

bulletQ: You're in court for planting a fake bomb in Downing Street, what's your Xcuse?
bulletA: Abandoning a rucksack containing 8 bottles of Corona brand beer was a spiritual message to help fight the Chinese plague. Desperate, or what!

markertick symbol Good news for people living near the Yellowstone National Park's supervolcano. The Xperts reckon that it is still shagged out after delivering 2 immense eruptions 9 million years ago and, if anything, it is getting weaker. Which means that the park remains safe to visit and enjoy and the local economy can continue to thrive. Or would be able to, if not for the Chinese plague.

bullet Reports of minor shunts are up as people who have been off the roads for a while try to remember how it all works.

 WEEK 2      putting some ‘con’ into conjecture

 
markerStanding about doing nowt—something they’re good at
650 MPs x 2 metres apart for safe spacing = a queue 1.3 kilometres long if all of them bother to vote on a piece of legislation.
No wonder a routine vote taking 15 minutes under the old regime now takes three-quarters of an hour to execute.

reader comment“Waterboarding will have to be done with bottled water if there's the usual summer drought and rationing? That's really going to please the government's bean-counters!” T.Y.

bullet Drive-through testing centres for the Chinese plague are deserted. Where is everyone? In a queue @ a drive-thro' McDonuts.

reader comment“What a shame that so many of the people escaping locko for a trip to a beauty spot are litter louts and shopping zombies on a day off.” R.W.

Kerching!£100 Million wasted on investigating and resisting efforts to get compensation over the actions of British troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. All the cases binned as fraudulent. Maybe the persecuted troops need to start a class action against the grasping lawyers and the New Labour pillocks responsible.
    Especially the ones still persecuting soldiers who had to deal with active IRA terrorists and their pals.

bullet Just a small quibble, but where is President Boris planning to put his 3 million refugees from Hong Kong?
reader comment“Maybe he's going to deport all the bogus asylum seekers. That should create more than enough room.” A.I.

Far Queue symbol It takes a dispensed-with Attorney General like G. Cox to put the 'crud' into recrudescence.

markerbulletQ: What happens if you're in a Tesla electric car which is in self-drive mode and some idiot crashes a truck, which ends up on its side across the motorway, blocking your lane and the one next to it?
bulletA: Your Tesla car will bury its nose in the truck, having failed to detect it in time.

tick symbol Good news for President Trump. The Xperts reckon he can dump the blame for the pandemic plague on China and feckless state governors & local mayors. The Democrats are not in favour of tough law-and-order policies for when arsonists and looters hit the streets and start demolishing shops. And big business doesn't want the Democraps back to put up taxes.

cross symbol Not so good news for the North-West of England, which will have to stay in lockdown because the inhabitants are still spreading the Chinese plague with reckless abandon.
    The same fate is likely for the South-East, particularly the London area, where mobs on the march are making a mockery of safe spacing rules. Rather curiously, the same reckless abandon also applies to the normally more sensible and sedate South-West of England.

reader comment“They certainly have a weird justice system in Germany if the new prime suspect in the Madeleine McCann abduction was sentenced to 7½ years in gaol in December 2019 but he's already eligible for parole.” A.M.

Idle hands . . .
markerWhat's the real reason why MPs are being required to be there in person for debates and votes rather than doing it by remote control? Far too many of them are going off piste 'by mistake' and ending up gawping at porn @ the taxpayer's expense.

bullet Going on a TV dance show makes your hair fall out? Crumbs! That's probably why no one we've ever heard of does it.

Far Queue symbol Will Floyd cashinskis cause as much havoc as the Chinese plague? Could be a close-run thing.

No rebound ’coz there’s no bounce
The government's biggest worry right now is that people who didn't have much of it in the first place have lost their last trace of the work ethic and found that they are quite happy to lounge about at home watching box sets at the expense of people who work and pay taxes.

bullet Britain's zoos are heading for Xtinction if locko keeps going for much longer.

alienReally!
Some guy was moaning why can't the four countries of the UK have the same lockdown easing to make things simpler for him. Maybe he should go and ask the Chinese plague why things are not the same everywhere.

bullet It's all very well for airlines to threaten to sue the British government over the 14-day quarantine for arrivals here but it's just shoving cash into the pockets of lawyers. The courts have no powers to tell the government to ignore the advice of its medical Xperts just because foreign-owned airlines don't like it.

markerMoan, moan, moan
The government is supposed to make decisions and give orders. But when it does just that and decides that everyone will have to wear a mask @ hospitals; staff and customers and visitors alike; from the middle of the month, there's a chorus of moans. You just can't win.

Only black lives matter?
We're just past another anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre, when the bodies of thousands of people were mashed to mince by the tanks of their 'Liberation Army' and flushed down Peking's drains. But are Chinese embassies and consulates around the world under permanent siege by cashinskis?
   Maybe the lives lost were the wrong colour and nationality. Or maybe there were just too many of them.
updateThe anti-British looney left here might be ignoring this inconvenient anniversary but the people of Hong Kong didn't, even under the threat of huge fines and a chance to see if they can survive some hell-hole of a prison on the Chinese mainland.

Notional Truss for ScotlandThinking with a slant
The Notional Truss for Scotland has come up with an interesting wheeze to make the Glenfinnan Monument @ Loch Sheel more interesting. The 600-foot tower to the memory of clansmen who died in the Jacobite cause, built in 1815, has developed a lean, like the famous bell tower in Pisa, after receiving a £170K renovation.
    The list is currently 1 foot from the vertical and the Xperts are trying to work out just what they can get away with to achieve maximum drama with acceptable safety.

bullet The scaffolding is coming off the fire-ravaged Notre Dame cathedral after its rebuild, if anyone feels like struggling to Paris for a look.

It’s strictly ‘he said, she said’ level only—for a reason
Scotland's First Meenister has done her best to frustrate any investigation of her conduct during the lockdown period by receiving only verbal advice from Xperts, who were not allowed to put anything on paper for later scrutiny.
    Historians are outraged. No one who knows how slippery politicians are is surprised.
reader comment“Similar sort of situation around here. Manchester's cosmetic mayor is frantically trying to get his alibis in place ahead of his mega 'not me, gov'.” C.L.

bullet Any gesture made with two fingers, even if they're taped together, is now known in the United States as the Winston Churchill victory 'up yours'.

Eyes Averted or Denied Demo Death Toll
The nation's bean-counters have been ordered not to calculate the extra number of deaths from the Chinese plague attributable to the mass gatherings at the start of this month. It's not politically convenient to those involved.

tick symbol Divorce lawyers are eagerly expecting an upturn in business thanks to the pressures of lockdown. They expect a spike which will rival the traditional January spike following the horrors of the Festering Season.
Elopement to a wedding in the great outdoors; something which is legal only in Scotland; is now officially a growth industry. The lawyers will be delighted to know that.

reader comment“Is it racialism if a member of a different racial grouping thinks that he/she is entitled to refuse to be arrested by a white cop?” E.B.

bullet 38% of Scots have less cash due to locko, 25% have more and the rest are about the same. The Xperts are Xpecting a surge of consumer spending when the shops reopen, which will level things up a bit.

tick symbol The good thing about President Trump is that he gets right up the noses of the world's HUTAgonians. As for Joe Bidet, is the poor old sod going to last out for another 4 years? And who will be pulling his strings?

bullet Switzerland is claiming the world record for safety from the Chinese plague.

Like that will happen!
A 'top doctor' reckons the bored thugs and vandals and racialist confectors should be made to go into quarantine for a fortnight to prevent further spreading of the Chinese plague.

bullet Is there going to be one brick left standing on another in Minneapolis if the lunatic city council abolishes the police? Doubtful.

Different strokes
markerPeople swanning around in Sweden don't have to wear a face mask which, the Xperts assure us, offers little protection to the wearer from the Chinese plague but does offer some protection to the people around the wearer if that person is infected with something. Even if it's just a common cold.
bullet Masks are needed everywhere outdoors in Spain, though.

bulletQ: Will local councils failing to empty litter bins contribute to the unlocko litter epidemic?

Just time-consuming, nothing else
Case studies vs statistics as a way for politicians or reporters to make their case to a TV audience. Most people find sadistics boring and/or irrelevant, and as for the story told by Mrs. X of Burbsville as her personal experience—it might be interesting if brief, but it is never particularly applicable to most people.

See the above headline
Pardons and apologies for the 2,500 women who were executed in Scotland as suspected witches centuries ago? Problem 1: pardons will be worthless to the women as they are all dead. Problem 2: apologies cannot be made to any of the women as they are all dead.
