Not at all believable.
A date this important should be checked by the minister to be
In fact any date that minister's tell the public should be carefully
"By October" does not mean by September, or end "of the third
to someone who is sloppy.
We are entitled to better attention to detail during a pandemic and
from a minister who is responsible for the way we are addressing it
The other side of the coin is saying supplies will be here by a certain day
is likely to end up being used against one when it arrives 2 days later.
Nevertheless, it does help if one is as precise as possible.
Still it looks like by the time the supplies arrive we will have this
outbreak almost gone.
I, and millions more, hope that you are correct Gordon.
However the minister did not make this mistake once, it was repeated.
I agree with Crash that it is not a major issue, it is however just one more
miscommunication that a little more professionalism would have prevented.
Pandemics are not a billion trees, they are actually serious.
Meanwhile, today's community cases are reported 36% down on yesterday's. All
are linked to previous cases with household contact(s) predominating.
R now = <1.0.
Not the worst possible news, then.
Actually very encouraging and worthy of a new thread.
Not relevant to this one however, eh?
Uplifting news informally appended to a existing informal discussion already
talked out can no harm, eh?
As for suggesting a new thread, I'd have thought it appropriate to wait for a
few more updates before doing so, with the possibility of a distinctly
new/changed scenario worth discussing. There are times when those angels on
the head of the pin welcome a little time out.
My angels are always on the ball.
It is still off topic.
pretty much on topic really. From yesterday:
keepinga lot of balls in the air at once is what our Ministers have to
do - and mixing big issues such as going into, contiuing or coming
down from lockdown are more important than minor details of the supply
chain, important though these are.
Not sure what balls have to do with it - hopefully you can keep your
ball from being pricked, Tony.
