In view of the ongoing British propaganda about a “disaster” in the EU but a “great success” in Britain, the following figures may be useful.

Numbers of reported deaths “with Covid-19” per 1 million population:

Britain 1847
USA 1656
Brazil 1335
EU 1310
South Africa 863
Russia 640
China 3

Britain is doing 41% “worse” than the EU, worse than Brazil and South Africa, 12% worse even than the US (which for most of the past 12 months had an insane baby failed casino-owner for its president and has already lost more lives than it did in both WW1 and WW2 added together), about 3 times as badly as Russia, and hundreds of time worse than China. So maybe the pandemic wasn’t defeated on the playing fields of Eton as generations of privately-educated British rulers have told themselves Napoleon was.

Funny how “data boy Dominic” seemed to suggest yesterday that Britain was doing much better than the EU. Fan of Charles Murray and Steven Pinker that he is, he may well have a VERY different idea of what it means to do “well” in a pandemic than most of the rest of us have. I will never tire of saying that the patron saint of Tories and the British rulers generally is Thomas Malthus.

I can almost hear rightwingers respond with apoplexy to the above figures, saying they were probably prepared by foreigners, they’re misleading, only a traitor to the wise rulership of Kim Jong-Un public schoolboys would dare think such a thing, horsewhipping is too good for anyone who says it, etc.

So here it is again: the “data” says the EU is faring much better in this pandemic than the sh*tty little kingdom to its northwest.
