8.  LDS mailing

One point worth underlining further is that one of its central conclusions – that “if the national lockdown had been instituted even a week earlier ‘we would have reduced the final death toll by at least a half'” (the report quoting Professor Neil Ferguson here) – is demonstrably false on all the data available. That’s because it assumes that the epidemic was continuing to grow exponentially in the week before lockdown was brought into effect on March 24th, a growth which supposedly only the lockdown brought to an end.

That this is not the case is evident from all the data we have, as has been shown on numerous occasions.

See, there's my problem with 'community guidelines' based on bollox, based on utter tosh.  I've criticised LDS for their M25 bubble bias but that doesn't mean they haven't gone over every chart produced by govt agencies and they simply do ... not ... add ... up.  So what can we do?  Particularly if we personally stand to lose so much.

    I subconsciously add an extra "e" to that "news" channel title.
    Am I far right wing, or extreme right wing?
    or am I just a National Socialist ,scum?
