Re: Coronavirus

The thing I cant help keep thinking is if we knew the true numbers. Ie there were actually 10 or 20,000 infected. Or more. Which isn’t beyond the realms of possibility given what was said and done about not everyone getting tested, would the pandemonium and panic be as great as it is?

Re: Anyone cancelled their Sky Sports Subscription ?

This is the problem with sky though. And must be a nightmare for their customer services and billing teams. There is no consistent price.

One man could be paying £60 for the same product someone’s paying £100+ and others less than £60.

In my eyes it should be more regulated and standardised.
