More relevant now than ever. And great fun too.
Controversial but arguably Matt Hancock (a liar whose face I’ve frequently wanted to punch) had a good pandemic if only for overruling civil servants by blocking a deal with a US firm to make the Oxford vaccine - and insisting the AstraZeneca contract gave us first dibs - and increasing the order for doses from the suggested 30 million to 100 million.

Apparently he was obsessed by the bit in Contagion where the vaccine was allocated by lottery ‘cos there weren’t enough doses.
And along the same lines I hate these sorts of pieces [Link] We’re being turned into b teams while the Premier League clubs celebrate their non-existent success of developing players. The end of the game is nigh.

Absolute bullshit.
Fair enough d4d4 - just don’t hate the player, hate the game. Captain Tom served. If the media try and create something else out of that it’s not his fault. Totally agree with you that the media are overly keen to make anyone a hero or legend these days if only to give them headlines on the flip side.

Haven’t bought a newspaper for many years now.
Fed up with the way the media creates” heroes” Trigger. Captain Tom, the NHS, anybody doing an outward-bound-type fundraising jolly.

Worked as a Finance Director in the charity sector for 20 years. Got very cynical by the end given what really goes on behind the scenes.
The media have indeed been appalling from the start. The journalists asking questions at the first Johnson /Whitty /Vallance press conference were all the well-known political ones when we needed the science ones asking questions on our behalf. And it got worse from there.

Captain Tom was what the country needed at the time. He had charisma. To an extent it was pure luck that his fund raising took off when another one just as worthy made a few hundred pounds if that. Not worth knocking him though. Good luck and right place at the right time.

I have far less respect for his relatives who seem to want to keep on getting the publicity, let him rest in peace.
Lots volunteered. Captain Tom got conscripted. He was never a hero.

Someone has to be in charge of the stores. We can’t all kick doors in and shoot people in the face. Someone needs to make sure there’s food and bullets. If you sign up you’re alright.

Interesting question re “good pandemic”. Akin to that post-WW2 thing where there was that tendency to judge whether somebody had had a “good war” or not. Important to remember so many did incredibly brave things and never spoke a word about it.

Sav, the NHS and the vaccine strategy & distribution have been excellent. I had my concerns initially over how my hospital were keeping us safe but everything they have done March 20 onward had been excellent

Oo er missus!
Totally agree with REPD. Media and politics have embarrassed themselves through the pandemic. At a time when we just needed some sense, balance and calm we got the full stench from all involved. No wonder people are trying to find new sources for their news.

Those traditional media outlets now hiding content behind a paywall can go broke no one cares.
Picking up on a couple of points below: does anyone think anyone had a “good” pandemic? Government have been sloppy throughout (although did well to bet on vaccinations); opposition next to useless; media polarising as always; anyone have a good one…? I guess DLAG and similar show us the good side of the general public, but there seem to be plenty of covidiot arseholes out there to balance things.

Just curious really
Wouldn’t take issue with that OI, bit of civilised behaviour never went amiss, most importantly looking forward to getting on with life again.

Clearly the number of positive cases relates to the number of tests but they are still positive cases which do lead to percentages of long covid, hospitalisations and deaths. Excellent that cases are now going down and I hope it continues but living with the virus involves taking precautions such as continuing to use broadly effective pieces of cloth in crowded situations.

I'm quite happy not to have a lot of loan players,.but do think we will have to get a few in January. Oh for a Dean Holdsworth type striker

KT postcode still dominates Dons' Draw with three winners. Our support must have moved eastwards across London when we moved temporarily to Selhearse, and again southward during the Kingsmeadow years

Is it not a possibility that the increase in cases is a partial consequence of the increase in testing?
