Which, to a large extent, is irrelevant because that is always the case.

It must be exhausting feeling that he has to counter every single imagined slight against & defend every single action taken by his Lords & Masters. Can you get removal of your critical reasoning on the NHS - sort of bariatric surgery for the brain?
Stop quoting him ffs

Oh and btw schools are not shut.

Well I think it’s relevant, it certainly creates less fear.

These deaths go over 40 days though implying they’re over 24 hours creates fear. They’re not reporting that 44% of the deaths are from care homes with another 25% being caught post admission to hospital.

Will there be a 24 hour period with 1,900 deaths ?

You might think that - if you were a complete simpleton. Anyone with any sense at all would recognise that lockdowns are used to reduce, not eradicate, covid - something that has been stipulated over and over again - so much so that only a complete moron could fail to have understood it.

They slow not reduce. Why were Scotland saying they wanted a covid free policy ? Why do independent safe suggest the same ? Are they complete morons?

Quite possibly but you'd probably have to recast the stats to show the day that every one died to work it out. That would be more accurate but would mean stats are alway looking some distance in the past - but the key issue is that those people all died - and that the incidence of deaths has increased rapidly - use the moving average - whether it is 1820 in a single day or an average of well in excess of 1000 over several days - it's still pretty horrid and scary. As are the numbers of people being admitted to hospital.

So, you agree, your comment about covid free was stupid.

It's pretty much all he posts on any political, COVID or other world/national event thread. I'm impressed by the stamina, and a little scared there are actually people like that with that high a level of denial.

Those numbers are available, and yes I imagine deaths are now running over historical averages.

It’s sad, and it demonstrates a health service and government that has failed to prepare properly for winter.

I’m lucky to be young enough to not be scared.

Biden announcing now that all passengers on international flights to the US will have to have tested negative prior to boarding and wear masks onboard, and quarantine for 2 weeks on arrival.

Two things:
1. with the US's response the world's worst, it would be better if he announced the same conditions for flights FROM the US.
2. what about flights within the US? Why not those too?

Edit: spoke too soon, he did talk about testing for intra-US travel by plane, train & bus. Good. When enough people are vaccinated I would like proof of vaccination to be required before boarding.

Or even other members of society that you don't want to unwittingly infect? You know, like a decent human being.

So sick of the me me me attitude I see here in the US especially; no mystery why there are so many cases.

Just been looking at the latest Worldometer figures.

A couple of things:

Over 25 million Americans have been infected, only 8 countries in Europe have populations that are higher. Australia has a slightly higher population, but expect the USA to overtake them tomorrow.


I keep track of the figures each week (my week runs Wed to Wed so won't match any "official" weekly figure)

UK cases in last 4 weeks: 283k, 404k, 375k, 294k
Ita cases in last 4 weeks: 92k, 118k, 117k, 95k
Ger cases in last 4 weeks: 132k, 121k, 139k, 109k
Fra cases in last 4 weeks: 94k, 105k, 125k, 134k,
Spa cases in last 4 weeks: 62k, 61k, 193k, 340k

What the f*ck is happening in Spain?????


Also, UK Deaths in the last 4 weeks: 3.5k, 4.8k, 7.4k, 8.5k
Hopefully, hopefully if cases in the UK peaked two weeks ago then the peak in deaths should be now. And should fall from here on in. Fingers crossed.

I’ve got 2 family friends who have gone from cancelled Chemo to terminal and a good friends child currently on Morphine for the 3rd week waiting for an operating theatre to be free ....

Does that count ?

But destroying other lives because they’ll not be visible is perfectly moral.

Shield the vulnerable..... which regardless of any lockdown here in the UK we once again have failed to do.

I’m lucky to be young enough to not be scared.
Have you not got elderly or sick friends and relatives who you could be concerned about?

I’ve got 2 family friends who have gone from cancelled Chemo to terminal and a good friends child currently on Morphine for the 3rd week waiting for an operating theatre to be free ....

Does that count ?
Very much so.
If you and people like you didn't have your self absorbed view in the first place chemo treatments wouldn't be cancelled, operating theatres would be available.

But people like you are so far up their own arses they don't consider others and the wider community, all about the self.

Mrs KG has had chemo treatment and surgery during COVID exactly because Australia took a collective approach to COVID.

Don't pretend you're not a cnut because you know people impact - do the right thing because there are people you don't even know impacted by cnuts like you.

Good for Mrs KG , she lives in a remote place that didn’t get the virus quickly enough for it to become endemic.

I’ve not broken one Lockdown or covid restricted rule, arguing that the lockdowns aren’t working and the other affects from them are more serious doesn’t mean I’ve broken any rules.

Blaming people who object to the rules but follow them is an odd series of blame to make. And sorry both the cancelled chemos where in areas and at times where restrictions had been lowered but the NHS decided to change treatment.

They’ll be 250,000 plus missed cancers in the UK that will most likely cause death and suffering, the choice to “protect” the system has failed them people.

Get the f uck off your own moral high horse for accidentally living somewhere remote.

Yep - you really a good guy, not a cnut ...
As for riding around on a moral high horse you come across thinking you're a knight on the crusades your so far up your own view. When you're just a self centred cnut in your own little world of me.

Everyone’s allowed an opinion , as I said I’ve followed the rules but question the efficacy of them when we are recording record cases and deaths again here post long periods of restrictions.

I also am fed up to the back teeth of the f ucking signallers who are unable to understand the difference between behaviour and the legitimate questioning of the restrictions being imposed on society which quite frankly we should all be doing. They’re mainly people living in houses with families and enough money or home working not affecting their finances etc, telling the young, the poor and the crowded that they’re very selfish for questioning living miserably and having their health destroyed.

Everyone is allowed an opinion - and my opinion is that you're a cnut for your self centred views and approach.

I'm sick and tired of signallers too - who think they're the voice of reason. But actually all they do is create a culture of passiveness and counter-community as they sit back and are happy to let bad things happen to other people because they're not happening to them. Those people are cnuts for their self-centred belief that difficulties and restraints shouldn't apply because it restricts their lives.

Those people, like you, are cnuts.

In the good news column - almost 5 million vaccinated so far and 360k in the last 24 hours. That's excellent progress.

In the not so good column - cases are not coming down fast enough - the lockdown isn't as complete as last year and the virus is more transmissable. Might need tougher restrictions before the vaccine programme has the desired effect.

I’m following the rules, that isn’t self centred is it ?

Questioning them is sensible, anyone who doesn’t because they’re comfortable is certainly self centred.

Indeed the people you’ve described as siting back and letting bad things happen to other people are exactly the relaxed lockdown fans who’ve given up critical thought because they like working in their Jim jams and stuff and don’t care about the fractured societies away from the full pay existences. I dearly hope they’re the bulk of those taxed to poverty when paying back the covid debts.

Those people could be easily described as c unts.

If the vaccine works it should be unaffected by external behaviour, those vaccinations so far are with groups that should be shielding .
