Sorry, got some details wrong. The person who exposed Andrews did so because Andrews was sending derogatory remarks about his wife.

Pretty much. Twitter is genuinely undermining democracy here. Can only hope it passes into irrelevance before the next election.

Because,on the whole, it's a civil not a criminal concern.

A cursory read of the recent Commons report or John Boltons book should disavow anybody of that notion.

There's been a lot of hostility to amending them.

Pat Rabbitte and Lorraine something or other both had private members bills designed to update the law to bring online communications in line with post and telephone, but neither went anywhere.

That’s the problem when you get men/women of de people - you end up with a load of thicks. SF of course like this as these plebs will do as they are told by the leadership, and they’d never have the level of introspection required to query their participation in such a vile organisation

I think what's killing the poor lad is that with Covid he cant be down the pub telling the lads so he's to settle for "Roe"

anyway, ER is actually French Rock Star philosopher Bernard Henri Levy ; a good guy that has done a lot of humanitarian work but believes that our reaction to the coronavirus is wreaking society with the biggest impact being felt by the poor....

Cagney as a current affairs guy. FFS, he's a former DJ who presented morning fluff on a shit channel for years. Actually, probably perfect for Newstalk.

On an unrelated manner, apparently a creche in Meath had two workers who tested positive. They tested the 11 kids in the pod and only 3 were positive - all three were asymptomatic.
Funny thing is though - the three kids were from the one family. Wonder who infected whom?

It's hard to look past the kids infecting the workers there. If it was only one worker you could argue the worker infected one kid who then infected the siblings but apparently the two positive workers had no direct contact.

This thing really is ridiculous. If we were in China, we'd just have the whole country tested in one go. It'd certainly be nice to have that ability!

It really is an odd disease. What I'd really love to see is a nice breakdown of:
Deaths, ICU, hospital cases, positive cases and then how many of the positive cases are asymptomatic. I know all the rest are available but are the asymptomatic numbers ever released?

Haven't seen anything related to asymptomatic numbers.

When you think about it, colds probably act the same (spread very easily with plenty of people having no idea who they picked it up from) , we just don't test for a cold so no idea how many people get it asymptomatically.

Difficult to know what to do. As long as the virus is rampant around the world, even a country as isolated as NZ wont be able to keep it at bay despite the best efforts. These temporary lockdowns will slow down spread though so probbly a good idea in the long run.

I see Vlad has a vaccine. I wouldnt describe myself as Anti-Vax, but I'd be wary of this one :lol:

Ah yeah, I know it's kids but some kids barely get a sniffle but possibly are asymptomatic spreaders. In our house, two of ours are rarely sick with even a sniffle when plenty around them are.

Anyway, saw this from the IT on meat plants:


We had already suffered hundreds of cases in meat-processing plants in the spring, but it seemed the problem had been dealt with, and no further clusters were being reported in this sector by June.

Some of the companies seem genuinely perplexed by the speed with which outbreaks have occurred in their plants. O’Brien Fine Foods, for example, went from one case at their plant in Timahoe on July 30th to 80 cases in the space of a week.

The German research points to the need for regular and widespread testing, which appears to be happening now, finally
The fact that two of the companies currently experiencing outbreaks felt the need to bring in private companies, at their own expense, to test workers appears to indicate a level of dissatisfaction with the Health Service Executive’s ability to turn around tests quickly enough. Sources say it was done “to save a few hours”, but hours are crucial in identifying cases and ensuring their contacts go into quarantine.

Outbreak studies
Some of the companies may just have been unlucky to have experienced a clear “super-spreader” event. In Germany, the giant slaughtering plant run by Toennies suffered 1,500 cases despite the company introducing a series of preventive measures, including building its own testing centre.

That outbreak has been studied comprehensively by scientists using genetic sequencing techniques. The index case, who was masked, spread the disease to co-workers in a radius of more than eight metres over three days of work shifts, they found.

Transmission was aided by the confined area of the plant, where air was constantly recirculated and cooled to 10 degrees. Shared apartments, bedrooms or carpools did not play a major role in the initial outbreak.
