    On leaving the bar, I felt a strong blow to the back of my head. Turning round, I discovered it was the pavement

    Probably for the same reasons people are attacking 5G (or other radio) masts and all the other SFB activities over the last few weeks, my faith in human stupidity has been confirmed (again).
    There are many diseases,
    that strike people's kneeses,
    Covid19! is one by name
    It comes from the East
    Packed in bladders of yeast
    So the Chinese must take half the blame.

    Reduced to £7.99 for a case of 12 in our local Lidl 'cos people are stupid. Still didn't buy any though 'cos I'm not that dumb. (some may disagree).

    Indeed. Apparently it's because they thought that it was broadcasting the virus, but maybe it's because it's seen as emblematic of China's Huawei.

    I think your estimation of the subtlety and sophistication of these cretins is sadly misjudged.

    Now, that's more like it. An understandable confusion between the electomagnetic spectrum (physics) and viral epidemiology (biology).

    The same type of people as the Pompey ones who attacked a paediatrician because it sounds a bit like paedophile

    Yeah, but you can be fairly sure that paediatrician fella was up to no good anyway, with a name like that.
