Bollocks, my mum has tested positive. She’s had her first jab so hopefully that will help but she’s 74 and has Parkinson’s so not ideal. Seems ok at the moment though, so hopefully she stays that way. 

Agree with Elite, hopefully it's very mild and goes in no time. Has she got many covid symptoms?

She’s got the cough and her breathing isn’t amazing. Neither too bad at the moment though.

Hopefully well past the worst then mate, I found it tends to hit hard in no time then subside as opposed to grow then dip.

Sorry to hear about all that fella. Terrible year. 

 

Thanks both much appreciated. Rightly everyone has been fixated with Covid, but garbage like that hasn't gone away either. Its tough for everyone.

It's difficult to know what to think with all of the conflicting reports and stories that you hear. I'm remaining cautious about things.

 

I'll play some golf and have a beer afterwards but that'll be the extent of my socialising until i'm confident that the worst is behind us.

Socialising? Billy no-mates, me. I’ll just carry on talking to myself in the mirror and posting shit on here.

To be fair i'm making it sound like I have some kind of active social life but I don't! I've binned off any plans for international travel though; i'll be doing a bit of a golf road trip with my brother in June and we'll probably go away and stay in a cottage somewhere within a couple of hours drive of here for a change of scenery but that's about it.

Funny how these stories always come out when lockdowns are lifted. Suspect it's just another example of their carrot and stick approach because they don't have the nous to handle it any other way, "here's a tenner for your dinner" cases spike "rare side effects discovered that can make kids' heads explode" cases go down "I'm off to the pub says Boris" cases go up "WHO tracking new bognor Regis variant that eats expensive dogs".

 

 

The erosion of trust and personal responsibility coupled with the lack of talent of anyone in public life means that this is the only way they can secure buy in now, like a crap parent who only doles out sweets or smacks.

 

Imagine being in the midst of world war 2 and instead of being levelled with early doors and being able to adapt and hunker down, you were told the war was nearly over one minute, then the nazis had developed a superweapon the next, or that your kids were evacuated one day and brought home the next, then evacuated again a day later.

 

People can adapt to anything, literally anything, there's people out in Siberia getting showered in minus 30 degree weather, people in Africa getting on with their lives while contending with dirty drinking water and all sorts of disease.

 

The only thing people can't adapt to is unpredictability, and that's something these clowns serve up in spades.

 

The mental health fallout of all this will be monumental long term.

Very true,

 

Johnson wasted no time today lowering expectations saying the drop in infections was overwhelmingly due to lockdown not vaccinations. He added that we can now expect cases and deaths to rise. The cunt has been dining out on the success of the vaccines for months. As I said earlier I expect the SA variant to start making the headlines and a new vaccine will be required to tackle it.  The only way to avoid uncertainty is expect the worst and not to listen to the predictions and lies of agenda driven Politicians .

My ma is 68 and she swatted it away after a week of feeling shite and she hadn't had a vaccination then. The odds are in her favour I'd say!

Can’t remember where I saw it sadly, but yesterday marked the end of the most stringent personal lockdowns and closures, not borders obviously, though they would have shortened them significantly.

 

England has been under 158 days of the most restrictive lockdowns, the longest in the world.
 

So, we have, one of the largest death counts, one of the worst economic retractions and fall outs and the longest and most unnecessary lockdowns. 
 

Just as headlines that should see a government fall.

We faced the toughest of challenges, the only thing we could control was the vaccine and we made the vaccine for the world.

 

They are the words a client said to me yesterday. You've got no fucking chance thinking this will bring down these cunts. Even seemingly intelligent people are brainwashed.

It just doesn’t logically hold though, surely the longest and most restrictive lockdown, the fourth if you take in to account the basket cases mentioned before, would lead to most deaths?

 

Funding to keep people at home, despite all the evidence showing that those who needed it most couldn’t access/afford to isolate, would mean that cases were severely reduced?

 

One of the most ludicrously expensive T&T systems in the world would catch them and keep deaths to a level in line with other nations, surely?

 

150,000 dead, many suffering from long COVID, a looming unemployment and economic crisis, debt at unmanageable levels and a chancellor more inclined to help those at the top than the bottom, many excluded from the blanket spunking of cash instead of focused help, eat out to help out, messaging so confused even the politicians sent out to defend it couldn’t understand it, ignoring the science repeatedly, scoring political points around best actions, lies, austerity decimating pandemic response planning and infrastructure, lighthouse testing facilities built for private companies at the public expense, emergency business loans being nothing but an easy way to scam the exchequer rather than actually help those that needed it, deception, timings being so bad that countless lives were lost unnecessarily, putting the elderly back in to care homes without testing, removing community testing early on, and employing countless consultants at vast expense to make a situation worse, not closing boarders or correct testing at airports, the ‘app’ fiasco, schools in, schools out, missed cobra meetings whilst fixing his divorce, leaving a Spad with a history degree in charge of the countries pandemic response and allowing this cretin to begin to fix the country in his own demented image, sleaze and scandal on a scale not seen outside tinpot African dictatorships, listening to the the calls from the back bench head the balls over real advice, employing several personal journalists to massage your personal standing instead of actually doing their fucking jobs and that’s off the top of my head.

 

Anyone who looks at these pricks and says ‘These guys, these are my type of people’ is complicit in this and as guilty as those at the top for acquiescing and deserves to be treated with the contempt they deserve.

 

The only thing that has gone right is the vaccine, as of now, and that’s because the adults took over, all this bunch of incompetent cunts had to do was sign a check. Brief note they were originally against the vaccine task force which is responsible for the early access contracts and were dismissive of its efforts.

 

They literally come out of this with no credit what so ever and in a fully functioning parliament they would be out on their arses and facing charges.

 

Anybody who doesn’t have the wherewithal or even attempt to engage critically can, for all I care, suffer the worst excess of this without me blinking a eyelid, they won’t though as we know well enough, it’ll be the most vulnerable and so it goes...

Bruce, firstly you are preaching to the converted here. I don't argue with one of your points. But I think you are missing the point. They're brainwashed into thinking this could have been worse and it would have been had it not been for the vaccination foresight of our overlords. Vaccine is trumping everything. I could bring a football analogy in here, but it's the FF and I would rightly be negged, but the reality is people will believe what they want to believe and will cling on to whichever piece of positivity they can. And why? Because they don't want to contemplate the opposite, as you rightly point out, they are complicit in this. So instead of thinking "these fucking cunts" their reaction is "it could have been worse, what would Corbyn have done". Actually refusing to contemplate what he could have done worse and more importantly thinking it doesn't really matter what Corbyn could or would have done, it's what these cunts have done and they should be held to account. But they absolutely won't.

Yeah, I was more venting as I’m hearing similar from people I thought would know, and I knew, better.

 

County is a basket case at the minute and it’s all very deliberate and knowing and, sadly, I don’t see this changing anytime soon as one hand is washing the other clean here to a degree not seen before.

 

The countries moral compass has been destroyed by having this fraud in charge and it’ll take a generation, at least, to get it back to normal, if that’s possible after this shitfest.

Spoke to my mum earlier. We have one of those portal things, which has been really good for keeping in touch.

 

Her breathing is still iffy but she’s not any worse than yesterday. Not sure how much of a direct correlation it is but she remarked that she felt as ill as she ever had, even having had the first vaccine. 
 

Thanks to all who checked in yesterday. It’s a quality this community can rightly be proud of.

 

Unlike its breakfast making abilities...

DM comments section. "This government has made a pigs ear of this" "Oh look another loony leftie... would Corbyn have done any better?! NO! So shut up!" This government will never be properly held to account because for 60% of the population they can do no wrong. The right wing media (which is pretty much most of the media in this country) push subliminal race and woke issues to keep everyone angry because thats what they associate Corbyn with. "Keep talking about Bridgerton because they call it 'woke' and 'factually inaccurate' in the comments section" "keep the articles about Meghan going, make sure everyone hates her because she isn't white caucasian and we can push that angle and keep every flag shagging racist cunt frothing at the gash for Brexit/Tory britain and Getting the job done"

Not quite, of the people eligable to vote 67.3 % turned out and of those 43.6% voted these cunts in.

 

Reform is needed.

I'd say that ilk probably sits around 60% of the population especially when you factor in BnP/UKIP types.
