    Contrary to what the so called 'experts' say, we are all learning about the relatively new virus COVID-19. There are no experts, only those who want to make a name for themselves - call it self-promotion - it's the modern way, so I'm told!

    There's so much conflicting information from all angles, I feel sorry for those in charge, having to make sense of it all and more importantly having to make decisions, based on that advice - damned if the do, damned if they don't or a hiding to nothing!

    Some countries, e.g. Sweden, didn't even have a significant lock-down, like many other countries. Have they fared any worse than others who did have lock-downs? Probably not!

    It's clear that age of population, density of population and the potency of COVID-19 are three things that determined how bad a country fared compered to others. There were many other factors too, but the UK, particularly England and even more so, London, score badly on the first three considerations.

    The media, in their desire to remain relevant, only serve to stoke mass hysteria. If there's not a story, they will make one or make a mountain out of a mole hill.

    • I popped into a couple of ASDA and a Disney Store (Bromley) on my slightly longer travels.

      Disney had loads of 21A cases. That's the Ryan 'Inside' Laney, Noah Gocek, Paul Conrev, Liability and Nigel Gearsley (with Flames) case.

      ASDA had a European clipstrip assortment - Largely based on the Disney 21A and general 962C case. The cars had N12A dates.

      I'm not sure when I'll venture into Central London. As someone who was born in Central London, four months is the longest period of time, I haven't travelled into London in my life!

      • I agree with a lot of the non-Cars stuff that has been said by both boogity and niftynigel... the media tends to make things worse in a lot of situations... I've cut way back on my travels whether it's to visit people (including family)... and it's been 4 months since I've gone on a Cars hunt or taken a vacation... I don't go into a store without wearing a mask... I don't like wearing a mask, but I want to do what I can to protect others and would like others to do the same in return.

        The US equivalent of the 21A case is the last case that Walmart stores within 80 miles of home have gotten... and I haven't checked any Dayton area stores in 4 months (and I lived in the Dayton suburbs for 15 years and would go once a month to look for Cars.

        I still like Cars - they are not essential.

            Great finds, boogity... the Scavenger Hunt Chick case was one that has been very limited in stores - Target (I believe) canceled their order shortly after it first turned up in stores...

              • B&M Bargains next door, had the XRS Drag Racing singles for £3.99. There were a lot of Lil' Torquey Pistons, but there appeared to be all six different cars.

                    • I ventured by bus into central London yesterday. I went to the Disney Store in Oxford Street. Around 1030, I think I was the only customer, certainly at one point downstairs!

                      Anyway, they had a recent assortment, which I think they had been getting for around a month or so. After no cars for some time, the UK has two very nice case assortments!

                      Case 22A or Disney Mix 1/1/20 (N02A - 0140A1)

                              ASDA now have the 963T case. No doubt Morrisons, Sainsburys and Tesco, maybe Hamleys too will get this latest case?
