FT looking into C-19 numbers, comparing them to other years.

Makes for interesting listening.

Thumbs Up to the UK Government, job well done during these unprecedented times.
No better Minister to protect UK statues than Robert Jenrick.

Everything I copy and paste can be found in the real world by using Google.

Thank you for posting this. I have been trying to explain peoples errors with using stats from ONS for some time. This does a better job than I could.

I kinda knew how the stats work however after having listened to this it made more sense.

I believe some of the stats that were obtainable from the Office of National Statistics have been withdrawn as they don't support the fairy stories of doom in the Main Stream Media

I am guessing you didn't watch the video? It explains all about how the statistics are reported and why they seemed lower than reality.

A very interesting and very factual explanation of the figures. There was no attempt to politicise the data just here are the numbers and that's why they are what they are.
