At the start of the pandemic people were worried because there was a virus that we didn't really know much about sweeping the world killing people.

We're thankfully in a different place now.

It doesnít exist and it certainly doesnít kill anybody, now all the people who slagged me off when I said differently must feel love for me. Oh by the way thereís more cases now than at the height of the pandemic, but look back at all my posts on this thread and you will see all the people, and I genuinely feel sorry for them as they can only feel safe and brave behind a keyboard and tell us of the superior knowledge, yes you know who you are.

And now we are opening the research again on the very thing that is the most probable source of the whole thing. Because it went so well last time.

Fingers crossed mate. My daughter and my partner didnít get it despite spending all weekend with me.

Iím quite a lot better than I was but still got a bad cold and a slight sore throat has developed, and just exhausted. But glad to be better then I was

Party because Iíve been ill and stuck in and partly because of the murder of an MP I feel slightly surreal. I hope society can move in a more positive direction

I don't think it has much value other than as a rough comparison number, a figure to illustrate that thousands of people die from diseases per year without it causing people to be confined to their houses and allowed out once a day.
Countries on the continent donít have extreme restrictions like you mention but they are getting a fraction of deaths. I suspect thatís because the U.K. has just thrown everything to the wind.

If the pandemic is going on yet you've had little direct or indirect experience of the illness, it's easy to drop your guard.
Same as that.

And all the people I know who have had it are ok, some say it was like a really bad flu some no more than a snivel.

What I do know is we all owe thanks to the wonderful people of science and medicine who have managed to save 1000s and a big fxxk off to the ď I am bathed in the lords bloodĒ types.

I donít think they want things tougher, I think they are just quoting various scientists who think that the messaging more than anything is out of kilter. You see with your own eyes that a lot of people ignore the mask recommendation, even when the retailers or venues request people to wear them. The one area they do seem to want pushed more is the idea of the passport, but Boris would be ideologically against that as would the right of his party.

I think the comparison with behaviours in other countries with lower case rates etc is valid.

TBH. I think that deserves a police investigation and potential charges. That should learn her.

What hope for the children?

Not much point. And I will only come across as some c nut wishing death or distressing illness on my former countrypeople.

I can't really see another lockdown being politically acceptable, although I can envisage any restrictions hitting football fans first.

I trust this year's ski season won't be impacted.

Every country is different, and you only become aware of it as you travel. I think itís correct that the UK is going for herd immunity, and that may turn out to be the right decision. The only trip abroad Iíve had from Spain was to Paris - initially I was shocked and a little outraged when I was asked for the vaccine passport - and turned away from a bar because my son didnít have his on him - but later I came to think it was better than Madrid because it allows venues to open up as normal.
Although thatís now the case here anyway and without the passports. Weíll have to see how that goes.

I am packing some full fat on my arse, especially for a prolonged period of fence-sitting. Since Sunny retired from these boards the place desperately misses one of those.
