    Default Lies, damn lies, and ... that's interesting...

    Deaths are down...

    Excess mortality in England, week ending 18 September 2020

    In the 0-14 age group, the average number of deaths is about 8% lower than the average of the last 5 years.

    27% of under 20s deaths are due to traffic accidents.

    Thanks to COVID - home schooling, lockdown, etc have saved over 100 lives.

    That's cos kids aren't taught the green cross code anymore.

    Ohh.. Actually he's still around but apparently he only cares about adults texting now. Decided it's too dangerous being from that decade to say he cares about the kids....

    I was showing the kids some "Charlie says" ads the other day. They loved them.

    My infant school was right next to a railway line and a couple of kids were caught trespassing, so every year we were made to watch some terrifying film about a kid playing on the track and being mown down by an Inter City 125.

    Dave Prowse came to our school as the Green Cross Man as part of a road safety campaign. He was a big lad AISTR... mind you, I was probably only 3" tall at the time.
