    Oh wow, what would those scientists know that Tories don’t?

    “ In the absence of a coherent exit strategy, there is increasing cabinet infighting. Mr Hancock is a frequent target of his colleagues, with one describing him as being “as slippery as a bar of soap””

    “ One minister said: “Never assume the electorate is stupid. They are highly intelligent and can digest a message as well as any cabinet minister.””

    Bozo is hiding in a fridge at Chequers. He is expected to find his way out by the time the worst of the pandemic is over.

    Anyone buying the kool-aid that he was seriously ill, he was on a bit of oxygen not a ventilator.
    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    Scientists cover their own arse just as much as the politicians. They won't make a decision without thorough investigation. They're still working out how far a sneeze or cough can transmit a virus and whether face masks can prevent its spread.

    Chief Medical Pratt says they'll look again at the evidence next week.

    To cut through the bollox, they're currently saying public don't need to wear face masks and will change their minds when there is adequate supply. Somehow the science will change over that timeframe. Don't hold your breath on how long it will be, seeing as they're having to fly PPE in on BA passenger jets from China, one box per passenger seat (if only there was such a thing as a commercial plane that could take pallets of the stuff ), but do hold your breath when passing near someone not wearing a mask.

    The omnishambles rolls on.

    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    Fever plus supplemental oxygen is reasonably high acuity by early warning score standards, even in the absence (and we don't know one way or another in Johnson's case) of abnormal blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate, oxygen saturations or consciousness.
