    Won't answer for some reason. Got a feeling he didn't vote as he doesn't think any of them are fit to lead. True enough.

    The exact same model they were saying will happen in the PL about 3 weeks ago. Still the most likely imo.

    Matt Hancock extremely competent and thorough briefing. Full explanations which even the journos should understand. Very good.

    Voting has closed for the Labour leadership farce. Diane Abbott is now counting the ballots.

    Just the number we expected. £35 million over 2 seasons. The trick now in season 3 is to get the loss down from £18 million to about £4 million. Anyone know how we can rustle up £15 million ? Thanks Bradley. No wonder Waggott is desperate to get the FFP rules suspended due to the virus. And the exact reason why it won't happen as many clubs would basically cheat their way out of trouble and get into unsustainable debt in the process. Oh wait....

    Last ditch attempt by the loons to hold onto (no) power.... rumour has it John McDonnell is going to put Keir Starmer on furlough leave, meanwhile declaring Beccy as an essential worker and the winner. Len has already agreed this process is fair and above board.

    No no no....we don't accept the result. Brexit didn't win. It wasn't even a draw. Everyone has changed their mind, we will win next time. No no no.... we don't accept the result. It wasn't Jeremy or his policies. It was that nasty Brexit and the press, we will win next time. Can just hear it now. No no no.... we don"t accept the result. Beccy had the best policies but couldn't get her message across because of the virus. This level of self denial is straight out of the book of Steve Kean.

    Labour leader elect Keir agrees with Chaddy and most of the country, that the government is getting it right. "I think one of the things that it's important for us to do as an opposition is to have the courage to acknowledge when the Government's got it right and in those respects, it's got it right" https://www.yorkshirepost.co.uk/news/politics/keir-starmer-yorkshire-lost-faith-labour-party-make-change-we-have-win-back-trust-2524650

    Must be having a laugh Philip. Comparing a quick wander round the island to sifting through 68 million people. Re testing rates. 100 people is 100 people wherever you are, in terms of time, cost and available kits / resource. Multiplying it in the way you have attempted to make a false point is complete fantasy.

    So if I understand correctly what Gordon Taylor is saying (LT article), any club deferring players wages due to insufficient funds (due to coronovirus) will be given an FFP transfer embargo. The PFA also advising players not to agree to pay cuts or deferrals. Meanwhile if club owners inject cash it also goes against FFP which in our case is a no go. Seems harsh yet the reality is after this crisis is over, we need as many clubs as possible to still exist. Not least Rovers.

    Coronavirus

    On the radio this morning they said a big jump was expected today. Up to now only deaths in hospital were included. Today was the first day to include deaths outside of hospital. Yesterday they said deaths can take between 1 & 2 weeks to hit the figures. They have to go through due process of confirming cause of death and there is also varied timescale in different parts of the country. So it could be 2000 died yesterday but you won't hear about it yet. Those 367 died some time ago.

    The plan hasn't changed 180 degrees Den. It was adjusted based on changing information, to keep infections within the level of NHS capacity. We are not staying indoors to not catch it. That is pointless. As soon as we go out it will be off again. The plan is still that we have to all catch it (90% of us), recover and develop the antibodies for future. However because of the % of severe cases, that process needs to be slowed down so the NHS can keep people alive. Vaccines are well over a year away so the only way we get out before next spring will be herd immunity. Key to that is the testing so we know the true % of who already had it & who has it. This is also when the ID cards will come into effect.
