'The more vaccine projects we have, the better our chances'
Leading scientist Adam Finn warns of stumbles along the way to Covid-19 immunisationThe chances of an individual Covid-19 vaccine project producing a successful outcome are low, one of Britain’s leading immunisation experts has warned. “Science does not have a track record where most of our vaccine projects work,” Professor Adam Finn, of Bristol University said last week. “We have a track record where most of them don’t work.”Finn’s warning came as doctors and epidemiologists stressed how difficult it would be to contain the disease until people can be immunised against it.

Coe and Ovett's Olympic debt to bureaucrat who defied Thatcher | Andy Bull
British Olympic Association chairman Sir Denis Follows was determined not to join the Moscow Games boycott in 1980, to the fury of the prime ministerSir Denis Follows, 71, short and bald, started every day’s work by opening his post. It was a habit he’d had as secretary of the Football Association, and a habit he kept as chairman of the British Olympic Association. In between the two jobs, he’d been knighted. Which was some going, for the son of a stationmaster, but it hadn’t changed him much. He still wore a pair of thick horn rims, still worried about putting on weight, was still the same avuncular, pragmatic man who had kept the Jules Rimet trophy under his bed and carried it out to Mexico 70 in his briefcase. And he still had the same set of principles.First among them his idea that sport was above politics. Follows was so ­adamant about this that his own daughter still isn’t sure which way he voted, and that adamancy made him one of the key figures in what the Labour parliamentarian Denis Howell described as “the most epic political battle in which I have ever been engaged”.

Coronavirus has completely changed how UK politics works
Only weeks ago no one would have anticipated the Tories finding the magic money treeWhereas Harold Wilson is said to have claimed a week is a long time in politics, a day is an eternity in coronavirus. Against a backdrop of changed time-space parameters, the Victorian gothic madhouse that is our sovereign parliament and which had been due to sit until the month’s end had the plug pulled on Wednesday.In the past two weeks the atmosphere has changed markedly for the nation; our high streets, which were becoming ever quieter anyway, have forcibly become eerily silent with sights never seen before: restrictions on supermarket entry and the rationing of goods to customers in surgical masks. MPs and those who dwell in the Westminster bubble have not been immune to change but have been slow to catch on to some aspects of the social distancing and isolationism that is, paradoxically, bringing the nation together.

How will No 10 keep the show on the road as tensions rise and illness strikes?
Johnson and Hancock go into isolation, raising questions as to why ministers failed to observe their own rules on social distancingAs Boris Johnson went into solitary confinement in his flat above No 11 Downing Street on Friday, having tested positive for Covid-19, a member of his staff noted how the atmosphere had quickly changed at the heart of power. It was not just the PM who had taken himself out of circulation in the preceding hours. “There are quite a lot of others not here now because they are self-isolating,” said the official. “Those who are, are just getting on with their jobs. The whole place has become very quiet.”Downing Street is a huge rambling complex of corridors and offices in which staff can, in normal times, move fairly freely, running errands and attending meetings in small rooms in No 10, No 11 and the Cabinet Office. Until Thursday, the place had buzzed with activity, day and night. Many members of staff were exhausted, working 18-hour days, or more, at what had for weeks been the national nerve centre for coordinating responses to the pandemic. Some were sleeping in the building to avoid the risks of public transport and to save time. Continue reading...

I know what we shouldn't have done last summer: what Premier League clubs would change | Jonathan Wilson
Tottenham and Manchester City are among the clubs who would probably make very different decisions if they could reset the Premier League as if it were Football ManagerThe season must be completed. The season must be abandoned now. As the arguments gabble on, only occasionally acknowledging their own hypothetical nature given how little we know about how the virus will proceed, how long the lockdown may last and whether there may be a second wave of infections when it is lifted, it’s tempting t o dip into another hypothetical. What if this were like a game of Football Manager? What if we could quit without saving and go back and start again last summer? What would Premier League clubs, given their time over, do differently?Let’s start with the obvious one: Tottenham’s decision to sack Mauricio Pochettino and replace him with José Mourinho. Once a path has been embarked on, there is perhaps some logic in pursuing it to its conclusion, but would Daniel Levy really take that road again? Tottenham are without a win in their past six games. They’ve gone out of the FA Cup and Champions League. They’re seven points adrift of fourth. They’ve kept three clean sheets in 26 games under Mourinho. For Spurs, this season has been a shambles.

Donald Trump Says Boris Johnson Pleaded: 'We Need Ventilators'
 Updated: See the latest stories on the coronavirus outbreak. Prime minister Boris Johnson’s opening words in a telephone call with Donald Trump was a plea for ventilators, according to the US president.Trump said the UK prime minister made the request when they spoke following Boris Johnson’s positive test for coronavirus.His revelation comes as officials defended the government over procuring equipment essential in saving lives from coronavirus.The prime minister has been urging businesses to ramp up production of the life-saving machines which are currently desperately lacking in the UK.But Trump invoked Korean War-era legislation to order the General Motors car giant to switch production lines to make ventilators.The president said the UK PM issued an instant plea to him regarding the machines when they spoke after Johnson’s positive test for Covid-19.“If we make too many that’s going to be OK because I spoke to the prime minister of the UK yesterday.” said Trump.“And before I even was able to get a word out of him... I said, ‘How you doing?’ and he said, ‘We need ventilators’.“The UK needs ventilators, a lot of countries need ventilators, badly.”Donald Trump also revealed he is considering imposing a quarantine on New York to slow down the spread of coronavirus cases.  Downing Street said 8,000 additional ventilators had been ordered by the government to boost the stock of 8,000 already available to the health service.But with Covid-19′s peak expected to strike the UK in around three weeks, officials said thousands may not arrive for a number of months.Meanwhile, the cabinet office issued a detailed rebuttal of claims the government had missed opportunities to procure ventilators.Andrew Rayner, the managing director of MEC Medical, which makes ventilator parts, told the Financial Times that he could have delivered 500 ventilators “if they got back to me straight away”, adding: “They’ve missed the boat.”But the government department took the unusual step of rebutting “a number of inaccurate claims”.“We would expect suppliers of ventilator parts, like MEC Medical, to receive orders from companies for some of the components needed to scale up production of UK ventilator manufacturers,” a statement said.Related...
