    Your views on how the Tories have handled Coronavirus.

    I'd be interested to see what @foxy would say the Aussies would do about this. My understanding from friends living there is that they wouldn't put up with this stuff as much, and the PM would be on borrowed time, and bloody well know about it. They have elections with great regularity.

    This. This sums politics and society up perfectly. We are tacitly implicit in all of this due to how society is, and most are unaware. False class consciousness as Karl Marx ( yeah yeah I'm a commie) would say.

    Is an additional issue faced by Johnson not that his cabinet have all come out and stated very publicly that nothing untoward had occured, which the medical advisor yesterday also got harangued into going along with? If Cummings steps down it now looks like they were all complicit in the cover...

    I believe we are in a period of politics (last 10-15years) where there is no accountability or consequence to political actions. It seems most politicians (although not Diana Abbott) can do or say want they want, stand there deny fact put to them, not answer questions and they get away with it...

    Cummings has run everything for BJ. He knows he's nothing without him.

    My current position is base on advice given so far from our school. This may change of course and we await further news once they collate all of the responses from parents.

    Agree with all the points @terrym makes, however I would refer back to a previous post on this thread I made which I fear that my kids going back to some sort of dystopian prison, isn't school. If school could be school, I'd be all for it, but if it's isolated learning and hula hoop sized space...

    Local school to us have sent an email to parents stating they only have capacity for year 1, so year 6 won't be going back. Wonder the extent of research and thought that went into the government plans, or if it was a bit smoke and mirrors to avert attention from something.

    The Coronavirus thread.

    Sister in law's care home were told not to send any to hospital if they thought they might have it.

    School opening. [poll]

    Of the 4-5 schools, including the one our kids go to, that I have seen letters or pictures of I honestly get the impression they don't want the schools to open. A lot of these letters and pictures were sent or posted before a opinions survey was sent out to parents. Maybe they are hoping for...

    I was looking at some stats on Denmark, and since they went back around 14 April, they have had 2 spikes just over 200, but the numbers have more or less stayed the same since before schools reopened, and have actually shown a steady decline. How the stats are measured I'm not 100% sure, but...
