Coronavirus

Recommended Posts

I think this has been mentioned elsewhere but I caught the end of an interview with the son of that Kate Shemirani earlier. 
 

He seems to be handling himself very well, given the circumstances. His recognition that his mother is probably mentally ill made me think.

 

She’s dangerous, certainly, but she’s also being exploited when she should be receiving help. At the very least not being given a public platform such as the one she had at the weekend.

 

I totally understand the opposing view to this, just feeling that her mental health shouldn’t be totally dismissed as a reason, if not an excuse.

She has got issues for sure but don't forget she's a dangerous, lying, vindictive cunt just like the twats who believe the shite she spouts.

I heard him speaking too. He spoke really well and you can only feel for him and the rest of her family looking to find answers for what could lead someone down such extreme pathways but unless I’m missing something sadly I haven’t seen anything to suggest that she’s mentally unwell. She appears to be in control of all of her faculties

Yes - I don’t think she’s been diagnosed but her son thinks there’s a problem. Of course, she won’t think there is so is unlikely to seek help.

 

Whether she is, or not. Must be difficult for her family.

My guess is she feels her son is unwell.

Her own son said she was mentally ill on national news? That’s a bit off isn’t it?

 

I don’t know any more about all that than she’s an ex NHS employee who is anti vaccine and lockdown isn’t she? I haven’t watched that interview either, so shooting in the dark a bit, but seems a bit shady on her that

Cases seem to be heading in the right direction last few days. 25,000 positives. Down 21% over 7 days compared to the previous week. Unexpected, I'd say. Whether it'll last or not remains to be seen, but perhaps a bit of burnout starting to take place?

You probably need to go and have a listen to the stuff she says, mate.

She is a nut bird no doubt. Of course she is cashing a check being a nutbird but that is a different topic.

 

Still trying to figure out how a fairly large percentage of folks within health care are anti vaxx? Is it just this particular one or is it any vaccinations? If so - what about prescriptions - is there really 2 or 3 nurses out of 10 that think those are blag as well?

It's weird.

Just had a look at a couple of her bits and then the first bit of his.

 

She is saying some extreme shit and very unfounded it seems about vaccines in general, but that must be hard speaking out about your own mum like that. And even if she is wrong and everything she says is bollocks, does that mean she’s mentally ill?

 

Aside from that, I saw the American clip of him being interviewed and it said at the bottom “1 in 5 in England believe coronavirus is a hoax”. That’s got to be bollocks, surely? I’ve not met or spoken to one person who thinks or believes that, and my 1 year old has got some seriously strong and extreme views, let me tell you

I fucking hate needles.

 

I've had my two & get my flu one every winter, I just tell the nurse when I go in that I hate needles & will need to look away. I do have other phobias that are a hundred times worse & I can't deal with them so wouldn't take the piss out of someone for being scared of needles.

 

Fannies.  

I've had injections in my gums, that's a legit fear to have. 

I also stood on a fucking bee today, and that fucking hurts 1000 times more than a jab.  

I understand needle fear, but not at the expense of having Covid.

I loved Agent Harris. I'd imagine that's the trajectory of a lot of people in his position. Start off as an idealistic hard-on, but your years on the job, counter terrorism assignments where you get the shits for months, you'd start to look at things a little differently. Bit jaded over the difference you're actually making, some shades of grey and a rapport with the baddies who essentially become work colleagues down the years.

 

That scene where he's in bed with his bit on the side, a fellow agent, while informing the Sopranos on New York-related stuff, was pretty telling. He's morally compromised, as you would be after all those years on the job.

Stood or trod?

Bit of both.  I thought it was a big thorn or bit of glass at first, so kept my foot there and then carefully lifted it to see a massive fat bee stuck to my foot.  I flicked it off but then some pretty intense waves of pain for 10 minutes. I haven't been stung since I was 12 or something.

There might be a words, tone thing here. Seeing the words used does sound a bit off but the tone used to deliver was anything but that. 
 

I don’t know what influenced his decision to give the interview, but I’d like to think it came from a good place.

It was based on something that really happened I think, the FBI in new York buzzing off someone getting whacked.

 

 

"This is a reference to former FBI supervisor R. LindeyDeVecchio, who said the same thing when he was told Lorenzo "Larry" Lampasi had been shot to death in front of his Brooklyn home. DeVecchio was later indicted for providing the Colombo family with information that led to four murders, much as Harris provides Tony with information leading to the death of Leotardo."

My sister and loads of her Facebook trollies are sceptics. The shit they come out with is terrifying!

Remember some bloke passing out once having his bloods done, was funny as fuck because he was such a Billy big bollocks. They used to do you two at a time in our walk in centre, I find it quite interesting so I was watching her do mine, then this bloke in a suit walks in giving it 'alright ladies, oooh I'll roll me sleeve up, busy morning for you eh? Next thing he just seemingly went to sleep in the chair. Nurse was like 'ah, he's passed out'.

We had a lad in school, a horrible little shite who was known for picking on smaller kids.

 

Anyway, it was six in one (bcg) time and everyone was lining up outside this room to go and get their jab.

When it was your turn, you went in the room and you got your jab behind one of those screens on wheels, then you came out from behind the screen and the next kid took your place.

 

When it was this lads turn, he went behind the screen, then there was a loud crash followed by 'no, no, NOOOO' and he tried to make his escape, only to be dragged back behind the screen. 

 

Next thing, he dropped to the floor with only his head and shoulders behind the screen. 

We're all pissing ourselves, but next thing they started dragging him back so he was sliding along the floor until his whole body was behind the screen which made us laugh even more.

A few seconds later, they dragged him further so his feet disappeared behind the screen, it was the way it happened in stages, funny as fuck.

 

He'd fainted, they have him his jab then gave him smelling salts.

Needless to say he got leathered until he left school.

Yeah, I do think he came across well and measured. Plus, he will be getting shit for her views too I bet. Imagine wandering passed Trafalgar Square and hearing yer ma riling up a baying mob. Haha
