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

Further lying at PMQ's today, as Johnson repeats the lie that the link between infections and deaths has been broken. Not so, CSO Vallance said quite clearly the other day at the Presser that whilst the link has been weakened, it has NOT been severed. Speaker Hoyle, toothless as ever, said nothing. ...

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

I really cannot get my head around the “no more masks” part of this. It’s a remarkably cheap and low-effort measure that does so much to mitigate the spread of COVID. I could sort of understand it if the Delta variant hadn’t been let in and allowed to balloon (but even then a “just to be safe” poli...

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

So how does anyone imagine this ending? and How? Completely a side-note, but it remains one of the most darkly comedic jokes to me that this government rode a wave of nationalism and racism, fuelled xenophobia and hatred of foreigners, banged and harped on about “stronger borders”, yet when the tim...

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

I think the ‘KPIs’ for coming out of lockdown should be the death rate and hospital admission rates, cross referenced with the % of the population that’s been vaccinated. The numbers of infections are a red-herring in my view, given where we are with the vaccine rollout and better treatment. And I’...

Interesting flip/switch debate on a zero Covid policy. https://twitter.com/bbcrosatkins/status/1361791323162951681?s=21 I think that this has actually persuaded me that we should attempt a zero Covid policy.

Not all of the world’s population needs, nor will take the vaccines. Places like NZL and Australia, and South Korea, that are COVID free may not need many at all, provided people can show a vaccination passport before entering their borders. Problem with this Tommy is, as far as we know, being vacc...

Re: Is anybody happy with the Brexit white paper?

Yes, and what you get back from that payment far outweighs the cost - access to the single market and customs union. The "saving" of having not paid anything in January is going to be a net loss by the time you add in the reduction in GDP, the increased cost of trade and the financial bailouts that...

It might be premature, but since this lockdown was announced, I’ve actually been quite optimistic. The most optimistic I’ve been for many many months. Things are going in the right direction.
