27266 Corona thread #3
Right, now that the last corona thread is over 1,700 posts long, maybe it's time for a new one.

How long do you think it will be until we're fully back to normal?

>Looking back on the beginning of the pandemic, Hayward, a professor of infectious disease epidemiology at UCL, said: “I think one of the reasons that we’ve had so many deaths is that we left things far too late, in terms of taking more restrictive measures.

>“We should have been taking social distancing measures – if not a full lockdown then other measures that were trying to separate people – much earlier. At that time, of course, we also didn’t really have the same mechanisms to measure how much disease there was in the community, so we were largely only really seeing the tip of the iceberg of cases.

...It is important to state that it is not communities that commit crimes but individuals. Those convicted are squarely Henry Long, Albert Bowers and Jessie Cole, not thousands of innocent people who share their heritage. Tarring all Travellers with the brush of these men’s callousness is as unfair as tarring all Catholics for paedophile priests or all eskimos for daft militant wog attacks.

Yet to completely ignore the cultural context of this crime is wrong. Henry Long, the ringleader, was removed from school at the age of 12; he followed his father and grandfather into the thieving “trade”. Albert Bowers left school at 11 and before the trial had already picked up three youth convictions. These young men could not read or write. For years they had not known school or structure. Their education was in petty crime.

Such problems do not solely beset Travellers but they are far more prevalent among Traveller communities. If we want to be a country where all are treated the same, where all live by the same rules and where the state does its best to furnish each with a decent chance in life, we have to end the squeamishness that prevents open talk about Travellers. This squeamishness is down to two fears. First, the fear of retribution. After the verdict on PC Harper’s death it emerged that the judge, Mr Justice Edis, brought the first trial to a temporary halt over an alleged potential plot to intimidate jurors. Extra security measures were brought in. Jurors were referred to by number not name. One juror was dismissed for acting oddly in court, mouthing pleasantries at the defendants. Whether she was motivated by misplaced friendliness or fear of someone up in that public gallery we do not know, but most will not be shocked by revelations of intimidation.

The fear of the bullet, the knife, the burnt-out car; this helps the lawless elements of Traveller culture maintain a certain power, and gives the law-abiding majority of Travellers a terrible name.

The second fear is that of being labelled racist. Since the Equality Act 2010 recognised Gypsy, Roma and Travellers as ethnic minorities, race has been used to shield this culture from due scrutiny. Sensible questions about why those within these groups are more likely to be in prison, more likely to be illiterate or more likely to suffer domestic violence prompt cries of racism. In April a Channel 4 Dispatches programme titled The Truth About Traveller Crime was dubbed “dehumanising” by activists and investigated by Ofcom. Desperate not to offend, the authorities turn a culturally sensitive blind eye.

The fears hush most into silence, and the silence means the stand-off between Travellers and the rest of society continues uneasily. Many feel disquieted to see the mobile homes rolling on to a local beauty spot, a portent too often of littering, mess, anti-social behaviour. Meanwhile those in Traveller communities are hardly “living their best lives”. Travellers die about ten years earlier than the rest of us. They have higher rates of chronic illness. Their suicide rates are six times higher.

You might argue that they choose to live like this, but the babies born into that life don’t. Many are destined to repeat the same pattern: leave school in your early teens, drift into a life of odd jobs and petty crime, never move beyond the circles you were raised in. As long as the culturally sensitive force-field exists around Travellers, these children are abandoned to a fate that should not be tolerated in 21st-century Britain.

It is a scandal that some Gypsy and Traveller children are taken out of school at primary age; that some start work as young as ten; that about 65 per cent of Traveller children are persistently absent from school; that they have the lowest attainment of all ethnic groups throughout their school years and are far more likely to be excluded. Are we to be surprised when they choose crime?

>The whistleblower said the company went to exhaustive lengths to try to ensure its policy was enforced. He said: “You were told from day one that you had to listen out for an Irish accent and find out as much as possible about a person such as their address and whereabouts. So if a person had an Irish accent and was calling from Ireland, then strangely that was ok. But if it was an Irish accent and the postcode was for a caravan site or an industrial estate in Britain, then that was a big red flashing light.

>“At that point we would have to signal to a supervisor to come over so they could put on a headset and enter the call silently. Depending on what they heard, it would either be a nod and a thumbs up to say it was ok to proceed or you were asked to put the caller on hold and told ‘we’re not having them’. It was an instruction to refuse the booking. It was up to us to find the way to refuse.”

>The EHRC found that Pontins had resorted to an additional tactic to weed out those it did not wish to accommodate by also excluding commercial vehicles, including vans and caravans of the type often used by the Traveller community, from all its premises.

I was going to say the only really surprising part is that they had to make this an official policy and enforce it at all. I believe we mentioned as much earlier on in the thread, but anyone who's ever done a reasonable stint in retail can attest Mincéiríi are effectively barred by unspoken common knowledge.

The weird bit is the list of surnames. It's not as if there are loads of people with those incredibly common Irish names who aren't gypsies, is it. That'd just be confusing.

Shamima Begum: Bring me home, says Bethnal Green girl who left to join Isis

On the day the caliphate suffered a mortal blow the teenage London bride of an Islamic State fighter lifted her veil. Her two infant children were dead; her husband in captivity. Nineteen years old, nine months pregnant, weak and exhausted from her escape across the desert, she nevertheless looked calm and spoke with a collected voice.

“I’m not the same silly little 15-year-old schoolgirl who ran away from Bethnal Green four years ago,” she told me. “And I don’t regret coming here.”

With those words and the act of lifting her niqab, a mystery ended. The girl sitting before me, alone in a teeming Syrian refugee camp of 39,000 people where she is registered as No 28850, was Shamima Begum, the only known survivor of the three schoolgirls from Bethnal Green Academy whose fate has been unknown at home since they fled Britain together in 2015 to join Islamic State.

Ms Begum may have reached comparative safety, yet she chastised herself for leaving the last Isis territory as Kurd forces, backed by the West, closed in.

“I was weak,” she told me of her flight from the battle in Baghuz, with something akin to remorse. “I could not endure the suffering and hardship that staying on the battlefield involved. But I was also frightened that the child I am about to give birth to would die like my other children if I stayed on. So I fled the caliphate. Now all I want to do is come home to Britain.”


https://www.thetimes.co.uk/edition/news/shamima-begum-bring-me-home-says-bethnal-green-girl-who-fled-to-join-isis-hgvqw765d

Should someone who quite clearly doesn't regret going to join ISIS and is still sympathetic to their plight be allowed back in this country? Then again, she'd already been 'radicalised' by those closest to her in this country.

That doesn't really track in my opinion. Statelessness is defined in law, skint is just being skint. Also you don't have a legal guaruntee to employment, as far as I know, and the government have to give you UC unless you've got savings, again, as far as I know, so I'm not sure this metaphor covers remotely the same kind of ground as Begum's case.

Then they are wrong. This is a long-settled provision of international law. It doesn't matter how many citizenships you're entitled to claim, if you only hold one and that government removes it, it has rendered you stateless. It doesn't matter whether or not you can fix it. The prohibition on statelessness has no provision for someone to go anywhere else. It is plain a simple - a government cannot render someone stateless, even temporarily. We also have case law that says that a government cannot unilaterally determine your citizenship on your behalf, without having to consider that it's for the government of Bangladesh to decide who has citizenship there.

At the point that Begum's British citizenship was revoked, Bangladeshi law automatically granted her Bangladeshi citizenship. If the Bangladeshi government fail to uphold their obligations under the UN Convention on the Reduction of Statelessness and arbitrarily failed to recognise Begum's status, that's their problem; the UK has no obligation under international law to pre-empt the lawless actions of other states. The matter is long-settled, but not in the way that you think.

>Drag queens banned from performing at Free Pride Glasgow event over fears acts will offend trans people

[...]

>The organisation said in a statement that it hopes to create a safe space for all members of the LGBTQIA+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, intersex, asexual) community, and that while the decision may "disappoint" some people "the needs of the most marginalised groups within our community come first."

[...]

>Free Pride Glasgow said: “It was felt that it [drag performance] would make some of those who were transgender or questioning their gender uncomfortable. It was felt by the group within the Trans/Non Binary Caucus that some drag performance, particularly cis drag, hinges on the social view of gender and making it into a joke, however transgender individuals do not feel as though their gender identity is a joke.”


Life rarely takes the piss out of itself like this. It almost sounds like the plot of a South Park episode.

Why? If the problem is that media/algorithms are just amplifying the extremes then "we all need to turn back toward the centre" is a useless thing to say because it's addressing the symptom and not the cause. Further to that, if it was possible for us "all" to make a unified political shift like that then it would be just as much a solution to all move left, or right. All he's doing is jerking himself off for being a "fence sitting wimp", as he puts it. As though centrists haven't always felt justified in being centrists as much as anyone of any political stance feels justified in that.

I would suggest it's not about coming back to the centre. It's not even about being far left or far right. There are rational and sensible people on both extremes, they're just outnumbered by the nutters the extremes tend to attract.

What it's about is keeping a healthy scepticism of alarmist, sensationalised viewpoints. These are the hallmarks of our time. For every fake outrage about Xr. Potato Head, there's some Yank college professor being sacked for doxxing all their students as racists, and then being outed as a "race faker". The kulturkampf has destroyed all capability of nuance and discussion on some subjects, because it all becomes drowned out in nonsense.

I know there's one or two of you here who like to bury your head in the sand and pretend it's nothing, but I'd suggest there's a very real reason we all post here instead of mixing with the normals on facebook or Twitter. It's because they're always on about this brain rot. Anit-vaxxing one week, hate crime the next, vegan pasties the one after. In the past this stuff was contained to tabloids you really could dismiss because most of the people reading those were only interested in the footy results and the telly planner, but now it's all different. It's ubiquitous.

There's four positions here. You're either a mentalist with a chip on your shoulder, you're an anti-mentalist with an bag of spuds, you're "well, both sides, I am smart", or you're the fourth and most intolerable; which is "I am so very smart that I shall post that one XKCD comic. None can touch me from this position of ultimate superiority."

I mostly just post here because Otherplace has awful taste but the other imageboard alternatives I'd consider don't have enough British posters to have a good conversation on some topics. You're spending too much time here if you think the views of the board are worth the price of reading them.

It's been kicking off in America (again) after the police have shot a black man (again). A couple of protesters/rioters have been killed after they were driven by the police towards an alt-right militia, with this planned in advance.

The origins of the phrase "Politically correct" in the modern sense still amuse me.
So far as I understand, in the socially progressive sense it started as a joke among right-on lefties, a way of making fun of the doctrinaire stalinists who would get upset that you went against the party line (usually less about being socially progressive and more about why the USSR sending tanks into Hungary was good).
So if you were part of the fisherperson communist league or whatever and you said something a bit sexist, nobody would really mind and someone would joke "Not very politically correct of you comrade!"

Then people overheard and assumed there was no irony in the statement, that it was meant as a rebuke to be taken at face value - as it would be in the doctrinaire parties it was originally mocking - so it spiraled from there into the way we understand it today.

I think something happened indeed in that some gits picked it up and thought it was actually a way of setting the standard for what's deemed fit to say and do and what isn't.

On the other hand, I don't think many people today, once again, use it without a hint of an eye roll. You kind of only hear people complaining about political correctness and using the actual word who are tired of it or otherwise against it, and not the proponents of it who would defend the concept as such.

So that in that sense, the actual meaning or at least the usage of the phrase "political correctness" isn't that different from the circumstances under which it was first coined in the USSR.

Lots of things have come full circle in politics and society in general since the days of the civil rights movement in the 60s, which may be regarded as the birth of the broadly liberal consensus we have lived in since then. That's what makes these such strange, interesting and occasionally baffling times to live through.

Last year I was drawn into a rabbithole after seeing a few articles in places like the NYT, Atlantic etc essentially suggesting racial segregation as a proposed solution to white privilege in the education system. One can only wonder what MLK would have thought of that. History really does repeat itself.

>"Republicans are using the lies they told about election integrity to launch a coordinated effort to roll back voting rights nationwide," said Jessica Post, president of the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee, in a news release.


As predictable as this was, the mind still boggles.

YouTube robbery 'prank' ends in fatal shooting

A 20-year-old has been shot dead allegedly taking part in a "prank" robbery being filmed for YouTube.

Witnesses told police Timothy Wilks and a friend had approached a group of people outside a family trampoline park in Nashville, holding large knives. Mr Wilks was then shot by a 23-year-old, who told police he had had no idea it had been a "prank" and had been acting in self-defence.

Mr Wilks's friend told officers the "prank" had been for a YouTube video.

It was one of the flight attendants, who was one of few people who weren't buckled up in their seat at that moment.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aloha_Airlines_Flight_243

The flight was between two islands in Hawaii, where that plane was in daily operation. There was a documentary about it on TV once, and they said that because the plane was serving those short-distance routes several times a day, it did many more takeoffs and landings than other planes, and that therefore the structural wear and tear was much greater than anybody had considered.

It was specifically corrosion in the epoxy seal on the fuselage that caused the initial failure. Stress was put into the rivets instead, which caused microcracks in the fuselage. This was missed due to hurried and lax safety checks by the airline.

The FAA concluded it was just that which caused the explosion, but I still favour the fluid hammer theory.

If the whole ten minute video was played back at actual speed, it'd be over in 0.015 seconds. If you played it on a loop, you'd miss at least twenty repeats every time you blinked.

>What also happens frequently is that they deposit the cash into some offshore account in a country with lax money laundering laws, and then wire it to your bank account in Britain.

A few years back the government decided to overhaul companies, making it cheap and easy to set up your own company, in the name of Mrs Stalin Knobhole of Turkmenistan and keep all your money laundering in the good old British Isles.

The London property market is absolutely bonkers these days. Your only way to profit from it as an average person who isn't minted is if you or your parents bought a house in Croydon in the 90s and you now sell it to move out to the country. Depending on your expectations, you could have over £250K left over in cash after you've bought your new place.

Department store Debenhams has officially gone into administration after the shop rejected plans by Sports Direct's Mike Asheley to save it.

FTI Consulting has now been appointed as administrators for the chain, whose shops will continue trading for now. Debenhams is expected to close 50 of its 165 stores in the future, but no timescale has been announced yet.

How come it seems like almost every high street shop is either in administration or on the brink of it?

Give it a few years and we'll all be slaves for the early retirees.

Coronavirus will wipe through the elderly, which means that those in their fifties and sixties will inherit the wealth of their parents and it'll have barely been reduced by having to pay for care fees. Care homes up and down the land will close as there's fewer elderly people needing their arses wiping, leading to hundreds of thousands of people suddenly without a career.

The population pyramid means that those in retirement are the ones who have to be appeased to win elections. We'll be at the whim of these very wealthy early retirees. Don't be surprised if sedan chairs make a comeback as getting carried around by a couple of paupers becomes the latest status symbol.

Push to get staff back to offices amid warning of UK's 'ghost towns'

Workers will be encouraged to return to the office as part of a major media campaign to be launched by the government next week. The television and newspaper messages will promote the government’s aim to reduce the number of employees working from home amid fears that town and city centres are becoming ghost areas as workers stay away.

A report in the Telegraph said the campaign would push the emotional and mental health benefits of mixing with colleagues but also said that ministers would warn that those working from home could be more vulnerable to being sacked.

Now look here! We might be a Constitutional Monarchy, But once in a while when they see fit we get to (with 10,000-100,000 other people), Pick a person, who is in the same club as a bunch of other people, and the lead of that club might get to pick who is in the government as long as more people get a seat from their club in a house and the monarch approves. Also there are a bunch of people who have equal power as the person we picked who are there because they are feudal barons.

>Four boys and a girl have been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder after a 13-year-old boy was stabbed to death in Reading. Oliver Stephens, known as Olly, was pronounced dead at Bugs Bottom fields, Emmer Green, on Sunday. The five teenagers, all aged 13 or 14, remain in custody, according to Thames Valley Police.
