    Yesterday was the quietest so far. I was working in the garden but had I been inside I don't think I would have heard it.

    Not sure if this was previously posted and I doubt it'll come as much of a surprise to anyone on here, but the linked thread in this Tweet, focusing on the mass social media targeting of journalists, has been doing the rounds this morning. Both interesting and disturbing:

    Continues to be evident that the government is doing whatever the fuck it wants to, even when it means going against rules THEY CAME UP WITH.

    Downing Street Daily Briefing

    Government was unable to reduce Coronavirus threat level below 4. Boris Johnson signalled on Wednesday it was likely to be reduced to 3, but the Joint Biosecurity Unit did not agree to this yesterday.

    Lockdown lifting goes ahead nevertheless

    It’s only going to get worse. With the terrible handling corona virus by populists like Trump and Johnson it’s going to be their principle tool for combatting attempts to hold them to account.

    And any enquiry will be targeted as unpatriotic and an enemy of the people too. It’s be Brexit++ and plenty of people will buy it

    In vaguely Cummings related news...

    Only half of people who develop coronavirus symptoms self-isolate for at least a week, according to government science advisers, raising urgent questions about the success of the test, trace and isolate strategy needed to contain future outbreaks.

    In an April report to the government’s Scientific Advisory Group on Emergencies (Sage), behavioural science experts said “rapid” research was needed on how best to get people to comply with self-isolation advice given that “only around 50%” took the precaution when they developed a cough or fever, according to Department of Health and Social Care tracking in England.

    Under the new track-and-trace system, people will be required to self-isolate for 14 days if they are informed that a recent contact has tested positive for the virus.

    The same document from the Sage subgroup states that scientists “anticipate major behavioural barriers” to people using the NHS contact-tracing app that will prevent it from being the primary method of containing outbreaks.
    This behaviour definitely isn't going to get better going forward...

    Got a response from my MP on Cummings. It doesn’t sound like a template from No 10 which is a bit of a surprise but after a dozen paragraphs he concludes that if the Police see no reason to take action then Cummings should be let off the hook.

    And also that he won’t join calls to punish the MPs from other parties who’ve been called out since as he recognises how hard this is for everyone.

    That while those in power are not above the law nor should they have it applied to them more strictly than it would to any other citizen.

    Basically he wants to keep right out of it all.

    Funny how the "treat people equally" part apparently doesn't including having the full weight of the government coming out to bat for you.

    They are happy to play Russian roulette with British lives.

    The worst thing is that people are going to die unnecessarily just to get Cummings off the front pages.

    It’s hard to believe that a government with eugenicists among its political advisers would have such disregard for vulnerable people
