You're happy demonising and blaming a minority who have done nothing wrong.  

 

History will not judge you well. 

I trust your second paragraph is as laughably false as your first.

This rubbish pisses me off.

 

Have a look at the appalling anti-democratic and authoritarian shite cunts like Patel are forcing through Parliament, then tell me that a bit of cloth over your nose and mouth from time to time is a huge attack on our freedom.

How do you define anti-democratic and authoritarian? As in people being forced to do things they don't want to and haven't voted for? 

Penny dropping yet?

It's just 2 weeks to slow the spread.

It's just to flatten the curve.

It's just a mask.

It's just until a vaccine is available.

It's just until the elderly are vaccinated.

It's just until everybody is.

It's just one shot.

It's just 2 shots.

It's just a booster.

It's just another booster.

It's just a few restrictions on your ability to buy food, travel, exercise etc

It's just an app for your safety.

It's just a social credit score.

You shouldn't be worried. Get the vaxx. Get another. Get the booster.

Good point: I never voted for this pandemic. 

 

As for defining authoritarian:

- allowing "spy cops" to commit crimes with impunity 

- allowing the military to commit warcrimes with impunity 

- banning protests, on threat of 51 weeks in prison 

- stripping people of their citizenship (and all the rights that come with it) with no judicial process

- attacking the independence of the judiciary 

- restricting the right to vote 

- attacking the independence of the broadcast media 

 

These are some of the real things that are happening now in the real world.

 

I won't ask you if the penny's dropped.

At some point your desperate attempts to appear like an old-school lefty will collide with your adoption of right-wing draconian measures being taken against those who don't want to take the clot shot. How will you reconcile this?

A few direct quotes from this:-

 

  •  it's too early to know about long-term outcomes of myocarditis linked to the vaccine
  • medicines regulators have chosen to give only one dose to children (yeah, I wonder how long that will last)
  • Overall, fully vaccinated people were about twice as likely to be diagnosed with myocarditis, compared with people who hadn’t been vaccinated
  •  Scientists have also worked hard to time the doses to maximise your protection against Covid-19 while minimising your risk of myocarditis (Really?  They just arbitrarily cut the gap between doses from six to three months because of OMG OMICRON)
  • We still need more research into myocarditis linked to the vaccine, including what any possible long-term effects might be. Although we don’t yet have all the answers, this isn’t necessarily a reason not to get the vaccine or not to get your child vaccinated (fuck it, just roll the dice eh?  What can go wrong...)

Like anything else in medicine and public health, it's a balance of risks.

Still having to balance risks, though. You (presumably) think that various governments and the scientific/medical community have got the balance wrong, but you can't really deny that it boils down to the risk of taking the vaccine versus the risk of not taking it.

I've been forced to do things that I haven't voted for for the majority of my life. As have the majority of people in this country, certainly those that don't vote Tory. 

 

Do you think our system of democracy (and that of every nation in the world) is anti-democratic and authoritarian, or just those that invoke Covid laws?

Absolutely, but it should be down to choice and with informed consent. The way we're going, we'll have neither.

The system is broken but the glee with which this new imposition of draconian mandates is being accepted by supposed champions of democracy is the big shock.

The "informed" bit is a major problem. For at least 6 years, the gang of charlatans who are currently in power have shown an absolute contempt for truth. People have become so numb to their lies and bullshit that whatever tiny, fragile shred of trust remained has gone and people find it hard to accept that these cunts can ever tell the truth. That's genuinely tragic, because during a pandemic, clear, trusted leadership could save tens of thousands of lives.

It's making a prediction, not a conspiracy theory.  That's a blue tick account with a long posting history.  

 

 

 

I get it now. You're a parody account, starting this thread to out the easily-led, alt-right mob on here, with your talk about 'libtards' and 'snowflakes' and 'lamestream' media and how blue tick accounts with long posting histories are of any fucking significance when it come to trust.

 

Almost had me there!

And yet you are happy to line up for their pharma chums to inject you with experimental drugs. Do you even read the stuff you post?

And yet everything they say when it comes to the medical treatment of Covid is accepted without question.

    • David with a very good goal to seal Canada's win vs Honduras in WC qualifying tonight.   And Costa Rica have just taken the lead vs. Panama in what's been an excellent match.         
    • Yeah, you'd think that's true.   If this happens, it won't take much to talk myself into it, despite my caveats. It's already kind of happening. Porto fans think he's basically the messiah, that's something.
    • John Barnes believes that Yves Bissouma would be the perfect addition to the Liverpool midfield.   While the back four and front three by and large undergo minimal change on a game to game basis, it is the middle part of the pitch which sparks a great deal of debate.   The long-drawn out departure of Gini Wijnaldum last summer left a hole to fill but rather than dip into the transfer market, Jurgen Klopp chose to keep the faith in what he had and give opportunities to some other players in the midfield rotation.   Thiago, Naby Keita, James Milner, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Curtis Jones and Harvey Elliott have all had opportunities to show their wares.   And while each of them bring a different skill set to the table, because of injuries and Covid infections, they have not been able to nail down a spot on a consistent basis this season.   Klopp has been highly reluctant to break up his midfield core group but with the average age slowly creeping up, Barnes believes it is time to look at a younger option that being the highly rated Brighton star.         Metro via BonusCodeBets reported the club legend as saying:   “From a Liverpool perspective, it would be lovely to Yves Bissouma playing at Anfield.   ‘If you look at the age of Liverpool’s midfielders, a lot of them are aged 30 or older, Yves is young and would be an excellent signing for the club.   Bissouma has certainly sprung to prominence and improved his game under the tutelage of the impressive Graham Potter and has been linked to Liverpool on more than one occasion.   Barnes has no issue if Bissouma is comfortable at his current club but says if he wants to make the step up, he should look beyond Aston Villa and Newcastle who have also been mentioned as possible destinations.     “As to whether Bissouma wants to leave Brighton right now and sign for another team in a relegation dog fight, then that’s up to him.   ‘He must decide what is right for himself, but the quality he possesses at this stage of his career – he should be aiming higher [than Aston Villa or Newcastle].   "Newcastle is a great club, but if you ask people Liverpool or Newcastle, then it’s a no brainer [you’d pick Liverpool].   ‘If you wanted to create a template for the ideal Liverpool central midfielder, Bissouma fits it perfectly.’   The Reds have been linked to Youri Tielemans and Jude Bellingham in recent times but Barnes was adamant that Bissouma is the more natural fit.   “Tielemans is a very good hardworking midfielder, but if you look at the nature of what Liverpool midfielders do, in terms of their physicality and the ability to get up and down the field, that isn’t necessarily what Tielemans does.   “Youri is excellent in possession and is perhaps maybe more Manchester City’s style of player. Yves Bissouma would suit the Liverpool style more than Tielemans would. The same as he would with Jude Bellingham.   ‘All three are excellent players though, Liverpool wouldn’t be doing wrong by signing any of them.”
