I know of at least one DM-reading oldster who is beginning to realise that the Tories are not a benign force.

The whole world will wake up to a sense of common humanity, mutual interest and shared destiny.

The UN will blossom as an enlightened world government and humanity will enter a golden age.

Reduced population leads to reduced housing shortage and increased employee power.

Gives JtT something to shout about in a post Corbyn world.

Till the millennials become the next boomers having inherited everything and not worked for it. #entitlement

Global Co2 emissions will plummet

Verdigris - 14 Mar 2020 10:44:25 (#10 of 673)

Grim Reaper will reduce the Tory majority.

I love my job and can do quite a bit from home.

I'm looking forward to catching up on piano practice, meditation and video games.

Maybe, but one bloke I knew was reading about past pandemics and said it can bring out the worst.

Theres a bit of a black whole in popular history around the Spanish flu because a lot of people were quite ashamed of their behaviour. Thats what he said anyway.

nemo75 - 14 Mar 2020 10:58:34 (#14 of 673)

If that were true, how would he know?

A Polish friend reports that they have also gone bogroll mad. He says that it possibly stems from martial law in the 80's where each family was allotted 5 rolls each. Per year.

Trumpism seen for what it really is: denial.

Banana - 14 Mar 2020 11:08:20 (#17 of 673)

Maybe now the Pangolins will be left alone.

SatelliteOne - 14 Mar 2020 12:11:12 (#18 of 673)

5 rolls each. Per year.

PANIC!!!

Brings me one step closer to my fantasy life as a scavenger...roaming a post apocalyptic wasteland with only a sawn off shotgun and my angry Alsatian as company a la Fallout 4.

If you catch the virus and recover, and thus become immune, you can get a really cheap deal on a holiday to Bali and have Kuta Beach all to yourself.
