Had he been to Barbados recently? 

 

Something I heard in a meeting today. 

At Christmas. To be fair to him, I doubt he had much say in the matter.

 

In the picture his family posted, the fella looked fed up, to me. Poor cunt is 100, what's he want Barbados weather for.

Speak for yourself. I had swine flu. A week of diarrhoea, I lost 15lb. Never felt better.

Both me and my missus both had it at the same time. Kicked the shit out of us and kept kicking.

Whenever I catch something it usually hits me hard because of other health conditions, but she's one of those who just shrugs things off and gets on with it.

Not that time though.

It appears that the important discussion in covidiot world regarding the passing of Captain Tom is whether he died with/from coronavirus. 

 

Not only are they stupid, but they're largely classless cunts too.

Shame Tom never got promoted to Major 

He was promoted to honorary Colonel, a chance missed there obviously. 

 

If you offered me 100 years and walking around my garden at that age, I'd take it.

Kind of shows those writing off people over 80 as having had a good life and somehow less valuable are cunts. Tom raised £30m at 99.

Oh no we can't/we mustn't use Japan as a comparison because it goes against covidiot bullshit. 

 

There are a lot of factors to weigh up in a Japan vs UK handling of the pandemic. Japan is a much healthier, more compliant country.  The obesity rate is 3% for Japan and around 26% UK. As you touched on the culture of them makes a virus less likely to spread. 

 

Japan is arguably the best country I've ever been to. Puts this country to shame in so many ways.

Probably the biggest difference between Japan and the UK is that they are a monocultural society. Not sure that's something we should be seeking to emulate or eulogise though.

It depends on if Japan is intentionally monocultural, after all it's quite an isolated country/island whereas the UK is just a few miles from mainland Europe.

Japan should rightly be criticised for not extending their colonisation outside of East Asia.

Erm, yes, it's extremely intentional.

If you think about the way the virus has cut a swathe through ethnic minorities in this country, it stands to reason it won't have as much impact upon a country where there aren't any significant ethnic minorities.

Almost 90% of the UK is "white British", it's quite the straw to clutch at re the coronavirus figures.

 

So "only" 7 million aren't white, and they're up to three times more likely to die from covid.

 

Not so much a straw, as an acknowledgement of reality.

Rhod Gilbert was quite funny on The One Show a few weeks back.

 

He mentioned that he had walked to the studio and Alex Jones says ' Did you see anybody not wearing a mask ?

He looked uncomfortable and said ' You expecting me to dob people in live on tv , what part of Wales do you come from ? '

Twenty times as many people have died with half the population so, no, not even close to reality.

Yep superb country. Loved being there. Their ability to get on with wearing masks and not acting like petulant selfish cunts says a lot about their warm, considerate and welcoming nation.

The biggest issue here is that you are seriously underestimating the impact that 7 million people with a much higher risk of getting and transmitting the virus has upon the R number.

 

Nevertheless, I fully agree that other factors as mentioned previously are more significant.

Remember this is the virus you said would be gone by this winter that you are referring too.

Very strange tastes in porn though. Not sure how that helped them with COVID but must have been a factor surely. 

Do they still pixellate pubes? Asking for a friend.

There was a lady in her 90’s on the news last week. She’d survived Auschwitz and has just got over Covid. She was very lively and said she was afraid to die. I thought of all the people who say ‘oh they’re old, doesn’t matter’.

My next door neighbour who is an elderly man himself, 75. His father only died a few years ago and was 94. 

 

I remember saying to Joe (my neighbour). "wow Joe, your father had a great innings" 

 

Ill never forget what his reply was

 

"yeah, but when you're 94, 95 is even better" 

 

It's easy for us to sit back and just say, ah they're all old anyway. They're still human beings with life left in them. If you can't help out the vulnerable when they need it most, then quite frankly you're a selfish prick. That's my opinion anyway
