    In terms of the country's finances, it probably would have had far less impact to compensate everyone, who dies of CV19 in their own home without visiting hospital, £1million*.

    200,000 deaths * £1million = £200 billion

    * ie. to the deceased's family
    Is that how much a life is worth? £1million. Or is that negotiable?

    What a load of nonsense. It is just a question of priorities.

    Maybe you think it is fine that the super rich can carry on asbefore with no impact upon them.

    It's precautionary until the NHS has caught up then I should hope it'll be business as usual.

    When I get p1ssed off I become very unsociable - though thanks for the offer. The only thing that I really enjoy these days is helping people even more distressed than me become less distressed. I have quite a collection now.

    Maybe we should carry on as before(wrecking the planet I might add) anyone who needs ICU treatment will just be given morphine so they can die peacefully - as the real issue here is NHS on its knees and lack of ICU.

    Now that would suit me fine. I think anyone who posts on CUK is mentally damaged - I am just more honest. A quiet painless death sounds bliss.

    But if someone I know or care about dies, I would be really angry.

    PS I might add that Boris could have picked an adviser who is worse. It could be the king of the cretins who has even less empathy.
