    Not just Ian and i-things, we can't use them on any of our android phones or tablets either. Anyone have an explanation?

    CORONAVIRUS

    John Yes I do listen to the TV and radio It told me that people who exhibit symptoms were being tested. How true is that? Only a few know Early action only delays. Take Germany. Today their health minister (I think it was) stated that there will be a big increase in CV19 deaths. Germany got lucky, testing early, mainly, it turn out the young fit and healthy skiers, returning from holiday; not my words . . His. Thus their figures are skewed. I stated the obvious because it needed stating. The media are screaming about the lack of PPE and they are right, there is a lack, but, the gov't we have is the best of a bad job, the alternative being JC. I don't think they are deliberately making themselves public enemy No1, there is a tonne of kudos and years in power on offer if they get it right, why would they not want that? I don't excuse anyone John, not my place. I mearly offer what I see as a reasonable counter to your position. Is your position wrong? I don't know. Is mine wrong? I don't know. Only time will tell. What I will say is, that being constantly negative, without offering positive counters, does no one any favours. It's a problem the BBC have but havn't yet recognised. If someone constantly cries wolf, the audience stops listening. I note that you ignored my last comment . . . I rest my case.

    CORONAVIRUS

    We have no idea about how many people in the UK have CV19? Agreed, not a clue But as for the politicians and Royalty comment . . . .I'm not sure that there is any real evidence to support the position. There seems to be a general tendency to berate the govt for the lack of testing being undertaken Yes, the UK was slow to get off the testing mark Does it do any good to continually groan on about it? My guess is; probably not. From the man (whoever he is) pressing the 'testing' GO button, it takes time to put into practice There is a globally streched supply line, trying to meet the demands from over 100 countries. Many UK companies have stepped up to the mark, or in the case of Mercedes F1, torn off the mark like a greyhound Testing for front liners is coming, later than anyone would like, but, we all know it's on its way Tory govt . . .hands comment . . .again, I'm not sure that this is really fair. Do you really believe that any gov't of a different hue, would have done anything radically different I'm pretty sure the answer is no I am not going to moam, it does no good, all I am going to do, as a confirmed atheist, is say a quiet prayer for all those, like yours, who are going above and beyond, in trying to stop this pandemic from taking any more victims
