    For your eyes only

    The flu virus is not what it seems.

    It's election year in the USA, brexit is going on, and Trump & Boris need a little diversion. This planned diversion has the top secret code name of "Miracle on Rice" to mark the 40th anniversary of "Miracle on Ice". (Google it). So far this diversion has wildly exceeded expectations, and the press and public are blinded. Come November it will majically disappear into the sea of climate change, which also starts about November.

    Many corporate sponsers in the beer and cleaning products industry.

    Oh shit some MIB's are already knocking on my door! Gotta go.

    Selling Fear and Uncertainty may be the oldest con game, if you think about it. Very profitable with little overhead expense or exposure. Common sense, reasonable risk assessment, would require testicles which appear to be in short supply.

    Sick of the news and papers being full of it. there has been clear instructions what to do to help avoid catching it and what to do if you think you might have been in contact with it. I'm sure most of us don't need it ramming down our throats it just encourages idiots to panic buy and cause the shortages for the health services staff and those that have a genuine need.

    The latest this morning is a prediction of 100,000 deaths in the UK?

    All the hype. Same with all the meeeja coverage of brexit.

    Just what are they covering up? "The sheeple are busy panicking over this, they won't notice THIS......"

    I'd have thought the bog roll thing was fairly obvious Eric.
    If we all end up confined to barracks for an extended/unknown period?
    We are gonna need a good stock of something to wipe our arses with.

    What I don't understand, is why just bog rolls? Surely the same folk panic buying bog rolls. Would also be stockpiling tinned goods.
    Maybe Andrex have slipped the originators of this conspiracy a backhander :cool: :p

    I did wonder what was happening with all the bog rolls, next thing for me is to head to KFC and stock up on tomatoe sauce sachets just in case.........

    A friend of mine in China has been on lock down (house arrest) for over 5 weeks now so enjoy your freedom while it lasts.

    I do agree that the media are making a meal out of this and it will make the perfect smoke screen for certain dodgy world leaders to get away with murder
