Re: COVID-19: Your Thoughts and it's effects on you.

Our local Surgery is 'mopping up' those not yet vaccinated. Anyone who has received a letter for a jab but has not yet done so (maybe because they couldn't attend appt due to distance, illness or were sceptical etc) - they are now being contacted by the Practice with the offer to get vaccinated ther...

Thatcher or Churchill would have thought Johnson very much the clown-arse that he is. And they wouldn’t have been afraid to say it, either.
It's hard to imagine that either Thatcher or Churchill would have tolerated Johnson at all.

Re: COVID-19: Your Thoughts and it's effects on you.

With regard to deaths due to delays in other treatments - Cancer etc, the blame for this lies squarely at the door of the Conservative Government. Over 10 years of crippling Austerity, underfunding of the NHS, ignoring the advice given on 'Exercise Cygnus' to name a few. Granted, Covid 19 hasn't hel...

Re: COVID-19: Your Thoughts and it's effects on you.

Some good news to balance it - Wales announced yesterday that it is six weeks (!) early in its vaccination rollout. Every single Welsh adult over 18 will have been offered a first jab by Monday, which is absolutely bloody outstanding. Good news indeed - here's hoping that everyone offered the jab a...

Re: The Angry Thread...

Just been talking on breakfast telly about rehoming dogs.

Seems a lot of people went out & got one at first lockdown - just so that some of them could go for more than 1 walk a day. Now those same people are returning to work, there's no one to look after the dog.🤬

I'm not medically trained, but can it not be as simple as administering aspirin to lower the risk of clotting - as they do sometimes to lower the risk of Stroke or Heart Attack?

They are all innocent though - at least until proven guilty.

But yesterday Cummings said he heard the PM say it. Asked today if he did say he would rather see “bodies pile high” than order a third lockdown, Johnson replied: I have already made my position very clear on that point. I’m getting on with the job of delivering the road map that I think is the sen...

Re: COVID-19: Your Thoughts and it's effects on you.

What I can’t make out is why didn’t DC resign at the time and go to the press about it? He clearly felt very strongly about the dreadful things that were happening and he could perhaps have saved the thousands of lives allegedly lost because of Johnson’s alleged incompetence. Maybe Brexit was still...

There won’t be any consequences for it, though. The public simply don’t care. As is evidenced by PMQ's. EVERY question from KS was not directly answered & he went off on a tangent each time. Interestingly, Boris answered No when asked if he was approached by the Cabinet Secretary about Matt Hancock...

Edited to add -

I don't know if people are going to take Mr Cummings's claims seriously as it may well be seen as a vendetta against Boris Johnson.
