The stats for today show a death figure back in line with the average of recent days - 5 (total now 1483), though after 3 days of highly suspect figures I half expected more. Watch tomorrow; the weekend rebound often comes on Wednesday.

So it's the DuckDuckGo team that's helping Apple block Google Analytics from cross-site tracking. Nice work! ๐Ÿ‘

To say that the death figures over the last few days feel suspicious to me is an understatement. I hope I am wrong, but just one death again today for the third day running, when the average before Saturday was running at around 6, is statistically highly improbable.

If the figures are correct today, it's truly remarkable. I confess I am doubting them though. Statistically this is improbable. We know that yesterday there were problems with the testing figures, but no problems have been reported for death figures, and no problems reported today for either; in fact, the implication is that it's back to normal.
1 death today, after 1 yesterday. Total now 1477.
Another caveat: Sunday's figures are often low.
My model's prediction for tomorrow: 7.0

The 'British' empire is having another one of its existential crises. We must work to ensure that this is the last 'hurrah' of the oligarchy. Resist Brexit. Resist populism. Focus on local issues but remember who wields the power. Follow the money.

Share share share - let's get this wee suppressed book some publicity.

'How Scotland Lost Her Parliament' (1891)

โ€œIf we do our duty we will be classed with the wise and good Scots of the past; but if we falter and fail to assert the rights of our country in this crisis, then our memory will be covered with eternal infamy.โ€

I am wondering just how much this COVID tracing app has cost the taxpayer.

They've possibly scrapped their not-open-sourced open-source app, in favour of Google/Apples APIs...

Sounds like a very expensive fuckup
