    Will British Speedway Survive ?

    Yet it was fine in the late 80's, early 90's when crowds were far bigger.. You should know that more than anyone with some of the reserves Cradley trotted out in that period! I've got plenty of tapes with Sam Ermolenko, Ronnie Correy, Jan O Pedersen and the like in the same race as folks like David Haynes.. who literally were nearly half a lap behind.

    Corona virus

    Apologies, I thought the post was on the other, more intelligent thread. What is there to have out? The point is, hundreds of thousands die from the flu annually. You think that's irrelevant and not a matter of concern. That is sick. Covid-19 is a virus that is of course a matter of concern too. 110,252 deaths from flu this year. 16,314 from Covid-19. If you think either should be dismissed, you've got a screw loose.

    Not at all, that cretin has dismissed it several times on other threads. And yes, I will call someone a cretin who dismisses such a loss of life as insignificant. His comment says it all. Corona is not yet proven to be more contagious. Figures are beginning to prove that. Strands of flu infect millions within weeks at the start of each flu season. That is WITH a vaccine. The death rate is as yet unproven. The more testing done, the lower it is becoming. And yes people ARE playing down the annual deaths from the flu, it is ludicrous to suggest they are not. The Third Man is just one such person. I have not belittled Covid-19, which The Third Man claims... Yes it is something to be taken seriously as all viruses are.

    It does, you imbecile. Staggering you have such little regard for 250,000 to 600,000 people losing their lives.

    I see, so 250,000 to 600,000 dying each and every year is 'a wind up'. Good to know.

    Influenza has no cure. Otherwise it wouldn't kill between 250,000 and 600,000 every year. I'm not belittling Covid-19. I'm simply pointing out, if the media hyped up the amount that die from different strains of influenza, we'd be locked down every flu season.

    Corona virus

    You've never seen 180 people die from a virus related illness in the UK before?

    The words of Samwise Gamgee from Lord of the Rings seem particularly apt at this moment in time: "“It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were. And sometimes you didn't want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn’t. They kept going, because they were holding on to something. That there is some good in this world, and it's worth fighting for.”

    Err... it's experienced every single winter.

    Corona virus

    The death rate is massively spewed as they are only testing serious cases. Over 80% of cases have mild symptoms or none at all, these are not included in any 'death rate' figures. Plus, as you've pointed out, not everyone who dies actually died from the virus itself. There are two cases now in Portugal (out of the six who have died) where they died of other reasons but was discovered they had Covid-19 at the time. They're included in the stats though. What should be being looked into are the reasons why Italy and Spain have such a high death rate compared to many other countries.

    I haven't mentioned anything about his opinion. It's Tsunami who is attacking Raystadia's opinion and claiming he is the only one who shares it.. he is far from that.

    Tsunami is notable for his absence on the other, more detailed, discussion of Covid-19..

    RIP Mark Lawton

    That would be his sister Ruth.
  15. The sad news filtered through today of the death of Mark Lawton. Any old school Wolverhampton, and indeed, speedway fan will know of his impact. He was co-creator of the Wolfcry website who were one of the very first, if not the first, to begin online live updates. He truly was one of the kindest, most generous, men I have ever had the pleasure of knowing and will be sadly missed. RIP Mark
