I do hope they are telescopic. For getting on the bus like.

You could expand your range & market a stick for those blokes who don't know what 7 inches looks like.

Wuhan Flu, well done mick.

A young female politically correct virtue-signalling reporter asked  Donald Trump why he kept calling it Chinese Flu.

Donald Trump, without even turning to look at her, said, over his shoulder, "it started in China" & just carried on walking.

Classic Donald Trump.

The Corvid-19 name was brought forth purely to stop it being called Wuhan or Chinese flu. What happened with Corvid-1 through Corvid-18 that we never saw the names in general use and just had to make do with swine fever, Asian flu, Spanish flu, bird flu and the like.


Sod 'em. Call it what it is. Had they not lied and actively suppressed news getting out we wouldn't be burying so many or flushing the world's economies down the toilet leaving debt for the next generation to sort out.

Supporting leave is not racism. Don't let others suggest it is.

Sars, Meres Corona, all from China.

Made in china should now be blacklisted until they get rid of these wet markets and ban the sale of dead and dying animals from animal testing laboratories into the food chain.

In Covid-19, 19 stands for the year so the Spanish Flu would have been Covid-18 & the Asian Flu would have been Covid-57.

Spanish Flu, Asian Flu & Wuhan / Chinese Flu is ok with me.

There are people here who are sufficiently pedantic as to pick you up for a minor spelling mistake or typo and others who write a very odd version of "English" whom no one challenges.

You dont need to be able to spell to do well in business. I would like to bet Alan Sugar and others like him did not have the best education.
