The Tube shutdowns could be much greater next week if the rumoured London
shutdown happens.


I'd love to know how they'd intend to inforce it. They haven't got enough
police to do deal with normal crime, never mind this. And putting the army
onto the streets of mainland UK would be the kiss of death for any

government.
Not they have enough soldiers either frankly.


I think this situation is going to be the kiss of death for this
government anyway, they are in a no-win situation whatever they do. The


True, but the hysterical over reaction - though at least not as bad as the
ever excitable latins across the channel - is probably going to dump the world
into a global depression which could end up costing many more deaths in the
long run than this virus.

one thing they have got going for them is the continuing stupidity of
the labour party which still doesn't have a leader or a coherent policy
on anything.


Until normal people start joining again and voting for sensible leaders
Labour will remain a protest party for middle class Marxists and agitators.
