Why is he wearing one of his darts tops in the house ? 

He's not. He's just outside his house. Pedant alert. 

 

I'm distressed by the bingo wings.

Couple of things on the telly tonight that may be of interest and worth recording.

 

BBC Four @ 22:00 The Horizon Guide to Pandemic.

 

In the wake of the swine flu outbreak, virologist Dr Mike Leahy uses over 50 years of BBC archive to explore the history of pandemics - infectious diseases caused by bacteria, viruses and parasites.Inspired by the Horizon back catalogue, he tells the extraordinary story of smallpox, one of the most violent killers in history, as well as the success of mass vaccination and the global politics of malaria. Through the lens of television the programme charts our scientific progress from the early steps in understanding AIDS to the code-cracking of SARS and deadly predictions of bird flu.Each pandemic episode tells us something about the world and our place within it. In his journey through the ages Dr Leahy charts science's ongoing battle with nature and questions which one is winning.

 

CH4 +1 @ 22:00 Coronavirus: How Britain Is Changing.

 

This Dispatches documentary investigates how the coronavirus outbreak is changing Britain in the long term, for better or worse, and from a fall in pollution to economic policy.

 

CH4 + 1 @ 12:45 am A Day in the Life of Coronavirus Britain.

 

How does the UK function under the shadow of the coronavirus? This documentary, shot over 24 hours, touches on the funny and the poignant, and gauges the impact of CV19 on the country.

Mate, there's no reason for someone to be admitted to an ICU if they aren't going to be put on a life-saving device like a ventilator. Understand he's the leader of a nation, but that's absolutely not normal. 

 

Yes there is.

If this lot had anything to do with it, they'd be singing him fucking lullabies. Almost threw up when I seen this on BBC news this morning.

People who’s job it is to make people well, want someone to get well.

Die soon Boris would be perfectly acceptable.

I have to say it doesn't sound very intensive if he's sitting up and cracking on with the medical staff.  Is this normal in ICU?  Genuine question as I've never been in one.

 

It just sounds like "care" without the intensive part.  

I don't believe he is sitting up chatting to medical staff, drinking tea in his pyjamas. He'll be in intensive care for a reason and given that Downing Street have been playing down his condition at every step of the way it's reasonable to assume he's critically ill.

Most people have said on here that they hoped he pulled through, I haven't seen photos of NHS staff holding up cards saying 'Get well soon' to other patients, in fact they are being forced to decide who lives and dies in certain hospitals. Maybe's that is what is getting people riled up about this, that and the fact they smell a rat. But hey, Tories are always gonna stick up for their own, even when they type a load of shit to turn it into a Tory witch hunt when it isn't.

It is there job to make people well, including him.

 

I just find it odd to say the least how anyone within the NHS can support him and his party after the part they played in reducing it to it's knees.

 

They can't even be supplied with the proper PPE to protect themselves. Their colleagues within the NHS are dying because of it.

 

Each to their own but if it were one of the persons responsible for making my job a living hell while earning a shitty wage, the last thing I'd be doing is sending them a get well soon card.

Masks would reduce this shit but all the focus is on saying that the masks don't protect the wearer from infection.  It completely misses the point.  I wear my mask so that I don't cough covid all over the cornflake aisle.  Non-mask wearers are scruffy covid ridden tramps.

Yes there is.

Nope. In fact, there's a problem in general with people being admitted to ICU's when they shouldn't be and their condition gets worse because of the extreme treatment they didn't need. The point of an ICU isn't to have people laying there to wait until they get bad, they should already be close to death.

 

And especially in a pandemic when there is a shortage of ICU beds, only patients in critical condition should get one. So according to sound practice, either BJ is close to death, or it isn't normal that he was admitted to an ICU and he's basically stealing someone's place.

Are you a medical professional or have you ever had anybody close to you admitted to an ICU? I have.


And about this Johnson should or shouldn't be admitted to the ICU nonsense: in every fucking country in the fucking world the PM or the President gets the best possible health care available, precaution or no precaution. Even if there is an actual shortage of ICU beds or ventilators, which in London ant the UK, at this moment of time, there is not.

I think a lot of people are maybe just simply disassociating party politics from the fact that somebody is very ill from the disease that is ripping across the globe and puts everyone at risk. But yeah, like you say I suppose, anyone wishing him well or that he doesn’t die is a Tory cunt fanning the flames of a witch hunt.

 

This pandemic is probably the biggest thing that will happen in most of our lifetimes, where we are all at risk, but instead of uniting, people come on message boards and try to make it a one side versus the other situation. I’m sure there’s some on here who would jump to this line of “debate” at any turn. Make anything about party politics and Tory scum. It’s tiresome and not necessary.

 

This was a good haven for discussion at one point - looking at stats across different countries and attempting to reassure one another as best as possible, while some panicked and some down played it. We’ve now descended into partisan bickering as usual - it seems habitual.

Yes, I've been in an ICU. 

 

Secondly, if you knew how it worked, which you clearly don't, you'd know it's not meant just for "monitoring" without the use of some pretty extreme treatment. I don't care if it's Boris Johnson or Boris Becker in that ICU, if he's just getting looked at, that's not what an ICU is for.

This is insane. He is the PM. Whoever is the PM will get whatever is necessary. They will say whatever they want to the public. They will call his treatment whatever they want. You have no idea whatsoever what the medical protocol or procedure is in the UK when the PM is down.

It’s my job to make people well. I wouldn’t wish death on him. If he were a patient under my care he would get the same treatment as anyone else. I wouldn’t pose in a newspaper holding up a placard saying “get well soon Boris” to a man who applauded and cheered a bill in parliament to deny me a pay rise. I don’t really see that as “fucking mental”. Quite the opposite actually.

    • Agree with this and it's great seeing Martin and Short having fun again. It has been renewed for season 2 too.
    • Manchester United v Liverpool: Working as a pundit analysing Manchester United’s win over Atalanta on BT Sport on Wednesday night, Paul Scholes said Jurgen Klopp would be “rubbing his hands together” at the prospect of facing United on Sunday. The Liverpool manager insisted he was doing nothing of the kind.  ““I was watching the game and there was not one second where I was rubbing my hands together, I can say that,” he told reporters. “There was no reason for it. Atalanta caused United problems in the first half but even in that half, United had three clear-cut chances. Second half was a demonstration of United going for it, which can cause problems. I’m preparing the team for a tough game against a really good opponent.” Last Updated: 12:42 Friday, 22 October 2021 1h ago Manchester United v Liverpool: More from Jurgen Klopp on Sunday’s big game. “I prepare the team for a tough game against a really good opponent,” he said. “I prepare for Manchester United and the Battle of Britain and all these things because they have a really good team. United versus Liverpool is a massive game, obviously we know that. United are not overly happy with results so far but we all know they are able to do incredible stuff. This we know as we have already seen it.”
    • I saw that they found 9 more bodies in the search for him, all of whom have been the subject of existing missing persons cases.   It seems American law enforcement is not much use for anything outside terrorising minorities.
    • Pass the pound was enough reason to hate the twot 
    • I didn’t take a photo but Buddy Dog achieved an important milestone earlier.
        We managed 30 mins in a dog friendly cafe without him going bonkers with excitement at being under the same roof as other pooches, thereby hastening our exit.    If this progress continues, I might one day be able to take him to the pub.
