Something fishy there either they are lying or something more sinister, countries will have to learn to be self reliant in the future is the lesson to be learned from this .

you are jumping to a lot of conclusions there and personal abuse is not permitted on this site .

I'm jumping to conclusions? From the gibbering idiot that thinks the Chinese concocted this to make money?

Any personal abuse you get you deserve for thinking like that.

You clearly implied it.

The note about lying can only pertain to that. What else can they do with numbers but lie about them?


What is the more sinister about?

Since lying about number is a deliberate act and you've noted that separately - what are you suggesting they've done deliberately that is not fiddling the numbers?

With most people stuck at home and sport suit down there is SFA happening anywhere. There is very little news in the newspapers either.

do you think they worried about the virus spreading around the globe or did enough to make sure this didn’t happen , were they truthful with the information they had ?

I still buy 2 papers a day but it is so obvious how far old media is behind social media in such a fast moving situation, wasting my money tbh. Irish News is on thin ice atm!

Yes. Chinese made products have to be sold around the globe for the Chinese economy to prosper.


or did enough to make sure this didn’t happen

After the initial screw up by the local government in Wuhan, as soon as central government realised what was happening, it was jumped on. It was jumped on in a way no Western government has yet had the balls to replicate.

were they truthful with the information they had ?

Mostly. There are number peer-reviewed publications coming out of China from the middle of January onward.

They are certainly as truthful as any of the bull coming out of our free press and democratic governments.

Good time for one of them ould 'MLA expenses scandal' stories that they regularly trot out, when there's no news to report on. FOI legislation was specifically enacted to enable journalists to put in 100s of stupid questions to organisations, for free.

FOI is a source of endless mundane stories sold as if they were sensational. "X spent on Y" is the usual format. Find some expense that sounds like it could be frivolous, find out how much was spent on it, add up the amount of time until you get it into a decent sized figure and before you know it you've got a headline like "£6,000 spent on finger food" as the headline on a story in which there were 12 events over the course of a year with £500 worth of snacks laid on for a crowd of a hundred people each time.

I made a New Year's resolution to stop buying the Irish News - it's going downhill badly.  Nothing but ful page ads and holiday pull outs.  Last straw,was they kept putting only one staple into it.  Cutting costs everywhere.

They must be, like all papers, getting squeezed by the net.
