It is indeed and things are massively changing in the media. But it is all too late:

This Gov would rather drive us all over the cliff face than admit they were wrong.

Next week they will do so.

Singers and bands not to stop booking until we know what's going on. Media is twisting thing's around for their own agenda and the government(s) have no clue.

Covid Marshalls need to be scrapped, let the police solve real crime and let us carry on without masks.

If people are scared to go out then please just stay indoors and get food delivered.

£30 million each has been allocated to local authorities and Police respectively to enforce Covid rule breakers.

A clear sign we are in this for the long haul; despite the mounting evidence the rules don't achieve anything, and all the pain they will cause.

www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-54462290

£60 million pounds to try and trap water, when we are on the brink of economic collapse.

And another 60 million reasons why they won't admit they have got it wrong...

I can think of cheaper way for people to obey the rules. If they caught breaking the curfew then make them listen to Styx albums back to back.

These marshal's have no real power they are deterrents and probably fired bouncers and security guards. "Dead weight" we use to call them.

The Covid Marshalls will be the only people in work or on the streets after 9pm by Christmas. Pacing autumnal streets they will stop occasionally at the sound of laughter, and peer over privet hedges until silence is restored. Noses to letterboxes, they will smell out dissent. Indoors, the somnolent populace will recline on sofas; stupefied by cheap wine, virtual reality television shows (which will gain a huge resurgence in popularity now real reality is ancestral...) and smart phones. Over the years the Marshalls will grow older on streets reclaimed by foxes and badgers. Clouds will drift by more lonely than any person. Suns will set to no human eyes. Babies will cry for the parks they will never run in. And the old-timers will nod and whisper about a long forgotten god called "rnumber"....

You should copyright that Wyot.

Marvelous reading, I can't wait to be old and sleep during the day. I can tell the stories that my nan told me, about evacuations and being piss poor.

Many thanks GM. The repetition of the word "streets" in the second line jars, and would be removed in a second draft, but it stumbles to a rhythm I own

I am sure you will make a venerable old geezer with your stories; as it always sounds like you have lived a varied life from the glimpses we get!

Poetry doesn't has to rhythm.

I love to tell future generations about how I took on HMRC and lost. They are the real bastards

My life hasn't that been interesting it's just work, work and work. I ventured out on holidays and saw gaps in the markets and investment opportunities.

Chile is a wonderful country, I went there for a holiday however I went to a vineyard and winery just by chance. When we got shown around I was in awe wanted to be part of it. So I became searching for investment opportunities. I went to supermarket's and looked at the wine labels. Visited as many vineyards as possible.

An owner of one asked for I was looking at to taste or to buy stock. I said I want to invest more than anything. He smiled, took me to a very smart office and got talking.

I like to be the silent partner of things, invest but let the higher ups and corporate do their thing and I just receive a cheque every few months.

I always suggested hire good marketers and tell them them what you like to have. Being a minority shareholder is always good also because they can buy you out quickly for a huge amount.

My Cypriot brother in law went to Lativa because it's famous for its cocktails and underground bars. He did exactly what I did in Canada, saw a gap in the market.

He wanted me to be business partners with him, so I threw money in and went scouting around for premises. I suggested how we should have a members only cocktail bar. We got invitations printed and gave them to very posh and well dressed people.

Him being a Cypriot is a plus because he's actually tall and dark with very smooth chat. It was easy getting the clientele we wanted.

I do have a kindle GM and it is bursting with novels and history to read - and there are some terrific looking novels coming out now that got delayed by lockdown.

Most excited to start "Piranesi" by Susanna Clarke who wrote the brilliant "Dr Strange and Mr Norrell" years ago; but has released nothing since.

I don't have time to read about wine but do find time to drink it!

I can picture you in Hugh Hefner style PJ's, smoking a pipe, reading a novel and tell your partner to shush after she/he has filled your wine glass..

Re:As I said in March... 2 Weeks, 1 Day ago  
so still cherry-picking which tabloid tale to believe and which doctor or professor?

Despite the fact the overwhelming majority of doctors & nurses around the world (all those 100,000s in hospitals worldwide dealing with Covid) saying something different (of course they could all be wrong but they are at the "coal face" so one expects they have first hand experience).

This is the world we live in today : the vast majority of "experts" say one thing but a soul "expert" (who may very well be right not that any of us know) says something else and because it confirms your own amateur beliefs it's taken as gospel.

And the fact that sole professor says something and the Daily Mail published it ..therefore it must have value.

Colour me skeptical and not at all a tiny bit cynical that even health professionals like some time in the spotlight as well.

## he also wrong. Children are dying from this virus which none of us yet know how it may mutate just as the Influenza continually mutates into deadlier strands. We have no idea of how Covid affects and victim afterwards including children.

After all- it's sent Donald Trump MAD and he's a Superman.

Why are so many Indonesian children dying from coronavirus?

OK Hedda we all know very little about this virus but, like flu, we are working on a vaccine and, like flu, it demanded common sense precautions not belief in the media hype. By over reacting to the hype, this has had far more disastrous consequences than the virus itself. Of course it's not a hoax but neither is it a plague. Australia has been virtually untouched - compare the number of deaths connected to it to other causes. And Indonesia - half as many cases as the UK so far and a quarter as many deaths. We know you adore the media - don't we all? But don't allow yourself to be fooled by it.

160 children in Indonesia have died "with Covid" because of a particular problem with undernutrition.

We don't need Covid 19 for this.

In 2018 3.1 million children died from undernutrition.

2018 was not an anomalous year for global passivity allowng millions of kids to die. It is the norm.

But let's get animated about Covid instead...

Proportionality of response. Selective focus by media.
