UK unemployment rate jumps to 4.5% as Covid-19 jobless crisis deepens - And worse news to come.

I said it at the time, a classic example of Johnson pretending everything was fine and they were doing a great job, coupled with his love of stupid slogans.... His plan was going to create "Jobs Jobs Jobs"

Just don’t understand the need for politics to become involved in this. It’s a world wide pandemic come what may. Let’s rally round together. Sadly impossible as too many keep trying to gain some form

A Government spending money willy nilly without public audit.

Not convinced by the Bolton figure, IC.

Taken from James O'Brien's Twitter:

The Leader of the Opposition thinks the government should follow the advice of the government's scientific advisers. The government disagrees. (It's worth reading that twice.)

Newcastle under Lyme is above 100, no action..  what triggers are they using? Does anyone know?

Cheshire East is 145 per 100'000 and high risk or tier 2

 

Newcastle is 140 per 100'000 and medium risk or tier 1

That is caused by students going to Keele and bringing the virus with them and spreading it amongst themselves. Not sure if they are locked in like at other universities but I wouldn't much fancy being a student there right now regardless.

Otherwise Newcastle's figures would be pretty similar to Stoke

They arent locked in. I work at Keele golf centre and 15 students turned up together a few nights ago and were upset when we wouldn't allow them to all wait inside together while we were full. 

They certainly weren't following rule of 6.

Southern counties complaining that positive  students  are counted against home addresses not their student addresses which is increasing their counts.

I really do feel for the current crop of students/ younger generation who are just at the beginning of shaping their lives. They're having it tough at the moment, first the A level fiasco, then all the false promises when in reality most of their courses will be done via online lectures. The social life will be completely different to students of the past and they might not be able to see their family. Not to mention the debt they will have at the end, toll on mental health, difficulty getting onto the property ladder, lack of jobs and all the problems brexit will cause.

Those are cities. Newcastle-under-Lyme is a small town and Keele is quite a large university so Newcastle's Covid rate per 100,000 will be much greater affected by a few dozen students testing positive.
