      So it is!

      Sorry, I missed it because I’d already read about it on BBC News, which makes no mention of asthma

Overweight being an obvious one... remember standing in passport queue a few month back arriving in Manchester... think there was a US flight before me, a few notability overweight folks in shorts n t-shirts, you get the picture, standing there wheezing waiting to be served. Felt like I was downwind. They're buggered if they get infected.
        The difference is though that being overweight, generally, doesn't kill you. Being grossly obese might, eventually, but not being overweight. On the other hand, about 1400 people in the UK each year die of an asthma attack. Unfortunately asthma (certainly for my generation) is often a bit of a joke, associated with the fat kid at school who wanted to get out of cross country, but it is still a killer.

        Asthma is usually manageable, but add in a cold, flu, chest infection or, in this case Covid-19, and the sufferer could be in trouble.

            You should keep it. If you have run out of toilet paper, and you have no DailyWail, it will suffice...

              Nonsense. Swellin has applied all of her standard warped logic to this and concluded that it is all the fault of HMG. That's what a subscription to the Grauniad buys you.

                And they get Korbyn to write for them <shudder>

                I prefer the stories in the Metro and local press around the UK more entertaining.

                  The lifestyle articles are quite good.

                    Indeed.

                    Especially the one about the woman who made a wooden leg for her husband out of a bucket, some fibre glass, and some wood.

                    Apparently the NHS wooden leg makers were busy.

                      My wife would've just chopped my other leg to the same length. She's like that.
