I saw the other day he has a Masters in Economics. Seems quite reasonable for him to be the Minister for Health with that glowing qualification.

 

Imagine just before you doze off before heart surgery that you find oiut your surgeon has a Masters Degree in Economics.

The only thing he's ever mastered is how to look like a fucking sleazebag

It's difficult to properly get your head round

Remember, these, by and large, are on top of the people who would die in normal times

It's also a higher death rate than we suffered in WW2

It's a catastrophe

The tories will come out of all this thumping the air claiming victory and they will get all the support of the press in this land of fucking whoppers.

Was thinking about how the States and UK seem to be doing well with vaccines and it struck me it's one of the few good aspects of having populist leaders that can't do complex solutions to complex problems.

 

Exactly, and whilst obviously I'm glad that the vaccine role out is going well, they are already trying to shape this as forget about every thing that happened before and look at how well the vaccine role out is going.

They've given up on everything else too. Deaths are going up in care homes and I bet if you asked any of the cabinet why they'd peddle out something like "vaccines are the route out of this".

 

Lockdown is obviously in full swing but everything feels a bit half arsed. It should be the opposite, in a world of vaccines then every life lost now is avoidable and a life wasted.

So my sister has just rung me about my ma, turns out that getting onto the ICU is now a lottery and one where she hasn't got the ticket due to a bad heart.  Haven't told my dad this yet and dreading doing so, the next 2 days are crucial for her so I thank you all for the well wishes much appreciated.

A good site that refutes the majority of claims made by covid deniers. 

 

https://www.covidfaq.co/

 

In other totally unsurprising news, initial research out of Israel has shown that single dose vaccination is not as effective as the manufacturers stated but that effectiveness increases significantly after delivery of a second dose.

I know loads of people including myself who tested negative on tests but then went straight for another test where you get the result the next day or after and tested positive. I know a fair few people who have had covid now and the walk in get the results 20 minutes afterwards tests have almost all said negative.

Isn't that expected behaviour though? It isn't as sensitive at a PCR test. It should only be used on asymptomatic. The idea of them is supposed to be you get tested all the time and it catches something like 30-50% of cases that wouldn't otherwise be caught. Nobody should see a negative test as not having the virus, but a positive test should be a trigger to go for a PCR test and self isolate.

Nothing in that article surprises me, just showing his usual mix of arrogance and ignorance. It is what he has done his entire career and what the usual pricks love about him. 

 

Sounds like the perfect candidate to replace Johnson and maintain the blue wall.

North v South. And yes I know there are good people down south, but there will be plenty of room for those 6 people in the north after the revolution.

Fucked if I'd want half the north on our side. They're the fuckers responsible for the shit we're in now for voting for that cunt Johnson.

So Hancock has been 'pinged by the app" and is now self isolating.

 

Makes no sense to me that - the rugby story in the park is a complete non story....no suggestion he’s broken any rules if exercising with his family.  The being pinged by the app thing is interesting though as where can you actually go just now that requires scanning in?

 

Supermarkets don’t and there’s sod all else open?

 

Or have i missed something? I supppose being a politician he may have to use it to enter the commons or maybe tv studios...

It's not just about check ins is it..it's supposed to be if you're in Bluetooth range with someone else who has the app for more than 15.mins. although I have been (was with them for hours) and never got a notification. I assumed they'd stopped notifying people.

All they're interested in is setting targets and then telling us they hit those targets. Those press conferences are a joke. It's all PR and spin, as usual. They're not interested that people are dying, to them it's all a lark, a game, and a way to make them and their mates some quick money.

I was saying this to a mate today. They've managed to create a situation where 1600 people dying barely even registers and very few people think they are part of the problem, it's like it's all out of their control and the government is just there to provide the score updates. Those press conferences are pretty much no different to Soccer Saturday.

grim reading for US also. 
 

It took four months to reach the first 100,000 dead. It took just over a month to go from 300,000 to 400,000

 

...

It is just short of the estimated 409,000 Americans who died in 2019 of strokes, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, flu and pneumonia combined.

 

.....

A widely cited model by the University of Washington projects the death toll will reach nearly 567,000 by May 1.

Last night's  ITV documentary (Outbreak) didn't make pleasant viewing especially when you see how long the Chinese Government kept secret the outbreak of Covid for so long...Gang of cunts .

 

And then you see how well Taiwan implemented measures to combat the spread of it (7 deaths out of a population of 24 million) to this gang of sociopaths in charge here who basically imported it into care homes

Had the conversation again, with a Labour supporter, no one could have gone anything differently, no one has had to deal with this before etc. 

You have to give them credit, they are great at PR, which is obviously the priority.

Don't think they are even that good , perfornances on the briefings has been toe-curling at times, but they have a compliant media and a large proportion of thick or disinterested drones in the populace.

True, I should have made it clearer, when I said PR, I meant all of their lackys in the media as well. The narrative is spun as what they are saying is correct and anyone questioning them is politicising a national crisis, hence can't be held to account. 

We all saw Hitcock get his arse handed to him by Morgan but he will never be asked about his vote again by anybody else, so it didn't happen, nothing to see, move along. I would be surprised if any of the dailies even mentioned it.

    • Just a thought, listening to all these ex pro's on Tele talking about the big 6 being greedy don't care about fans out for themselves. I wonder if any of these pundits ever moved club's because they were offered more money? And I wonder if these pro's gave a fuck about the fans they were leaving behind who had payed THEIR wages and I wonder how many (Robbie Savage) mentioned downing tools to force a move through, Rio Ferdinand has had alot to say lately didn't he move from Leeds to Utd despite knowing the history between the two sets of fans. All two face cunts.
    • Yeah I'm sure every extra penny would be spent on the squad or stadium 
    • Not sure how the 'we go it alone' for the next tv deal works out. We and the other 5 clubs will be outvoted at every opportunity that doesnt benefit 'the 14.' They've already shown their intent by kicking representatives off PL committees. Everything is off the table for the 6 and on the table for the 14. 3 of the 14 voting on this wont even be in the PL next season.   It really wouldnt surprise me for the 14 to become quite bullish over tv rights money. Theoretically, they could push just about anything through such as weighting the distribution of tv money to clubs who finish outside the top 6 because 'they have the added benefit of income from European football.'   Anyone think cunts like parish at palace and barber at brighton arent licking their lips over this? They've never had such a whip hand in football before.   The 6 have left themselves exposed like never before.
    • Yeah I can just see the Premier league expelling the biggest clubs in the league if they try this again while losing billions in TV money ect. Never going to happen.    Its not like the clubs were looking to break away from the Premier league so the league should just shut the fuck up.    You can guarantee any of those other Premier leagues clubs would have been invited they'd have been on the ESL bandwagon quicker than a tramp in chips.
