    I havent had Brannigams in 10+ years. If I had ever seen them for sale I'd have bought them!

    This is what I got when I just installed the app. Had to uninstall and reinstall and then it worked.

    I've had surface pros for a about six years or more now. They used to be a real arse ache for drivers but have improved loads over the generations. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend one.

    I think there wa an example of a local election result changing a few days after the polling night due to postal votes changing the outcome recently. Can't remember where in the USA it was though. Think it was a Dem to Rep switch.

    In reality they often go uncounted until a few days after election night. From what I have read anyway.

    Have you tried all networks for 4g broadband? We have almost zero vodafone and o2 here but outstanding EE and mediocre Three. Most networks will send you a free SIM that you can load with some payg credit to try...

    Useful additional snippet of info, the latest randomised survey showed that about 6% of Swedish people have Covid antibodies so a long way from herd immunity. The unemployment rate is also higher than their neighbours.

    I'm going to make a completely unscientific theory that by the end of it all (as much as there can be an 'end'), Sweden could have a comparatively similar (maybe a little higher) death rate to their Scandinavian neighbours, but a much less impacted economy and generally better mental health state.

    I have a hunch that it might work out that way too. Just get really pissed at the people saying look how much of a success Sweden has been when its too early to say.

    As of the beginning of August the Swedish economy had contracted by about 9%

    I had a quick skim of the testing stats earlier and none of those countries seem to be testing a huge amount differently to each other apart from Denmark

    Sweden 151k tests pm
    Norway 184k
    Finland 169k
    Denmark 613k

    Absolutely true. Although I think its possible to say they have had x10 the death rate of their Scandinavian neighbours so far.

    Seems a bit early to say that no lockdown has worked well given that so many more people died. Its also too early to say that if Sweden had locked down they wouldn't have had x10 higher death rate than their neighbours.
