....is marked today with a minutes' silence in memory of all those unfortunate people who have died due to the incompetence and bungling of the government in the last 12 months. Lockdown is the result of the govt not knowing what to do, so it panicked and simply told everyone to keep away from each other.
This brought difficulties for people with long term health problems who couldn't get the medical help they desperately needed, and some of them were probably victims of this decision. It resulted in the govt paying out billions of pounds to businesses, half of which were fraudulent and are now being pursued by the police, adding to the overall cost.
Facemasks aren't necessary and serve no purpose, as was proved during the first lockdown when they were not compulsory, very few were wearing them, and the death rate dropped to near single figures.
Published figures are misleading and lacking detailed information. Some people who failed to keep an appointment for a COVID test were advised that they had tested positive, without even taking the test. Death rates are false, as we are not told how many actually died of COVID. Many people have complained that a deceased relative was certified of dying from COVID when they had died from another serious illness.
In July, PHE said that 95% of deaths were people who had one, or a combination of, heart disease, dementia or Type 1 diabetes. That is sad for them, it really is, but it is a tiny fraction of the population.
Transmission is not caused by young people as the spikes in the rates occurred when scnhools and colleges were closed. The main reason for transmission of the virus is one that dare not be spoken for fear of upsetting certain people but we all know it's spread by occupants of 2 up, 2 downs, where 3 generations live side by side.
99.9% of people will recover from COVID. The remainder are the weakest and most vulnerable who should have been protected by the govt, which should have put the billions into protecting them instead of giving people the opportunity to claim fraudulent business support grants.
There is always outrage expressed at "selfish" people who gather in large groups, but they are doing us a favour because the more they do it, the less virulent the virus will become. They know that this virus is not the killer that it's made out to be, and the figures are exaggeration in order to try and cover up the fact that the govt got it wrong. And it knows it.
The sick and the vulnerable were even denied health care in the first stages of lockdown when they were sent from hospitals into care homes, making them even more vulnerable.
This govt has been behaving like primary school teachers throughout this lockdown, along with other people, and you, my dear little things, have accepted it all, just like the primary school children that the govt thinks you are.
Apart from that, evertything's fine thanks. :o)

I guessed it was one of Tora's silly little names or acronyms. I must've missed that one.
He was not christened Captain H by me.
Makes me wonder why you ever had the vaccine. Do we know fully how this is transmitted...I don't think so. In the first wave our hospital had people dying who had been to Cheltenham Festival who didn't live together in a multi occupancy household. The second wave brought a younger cohort of patients to intensive care at our place , patients in their twenties,thirties and forties as opposed to patients in their fifties in the first wave. Being young reduces your risk of mortality but it doesn't eliminate it, and I work with colleagues much younger than myself who are still struggling with the longer term effects of the virus. I'd love it all to be over (I don't get any joy out of dressing up in many layers of plastic) but we are nowhere near it yet
Starmer was christened Captain Hindsight by Johnson, presumably because Starmer kept calling for measures that a week or two later Johnson finally got around to implementing in exactly the manner Starmer had called for, or in some cases more drastically because the delay had cost time and lives.

There's a reason the name hasn't stuck.

Thanks for all the replies folks. Compared to some, I've hardly posted on here recently. My comments in the OP are based on happenings in the last 12 months; things that are there for all to see. What I don't see is where womens' sport has any relevance to this thread. But then again, the comment probably came from a woman. Thanks again for your comments. Have a nice day y'all! :o)
lol yes I am a woman. I was just pointing out you have several "hobby horses" you like to moan about
1) Covid
2) diversity
3) women's sport
You denied moaning
The last year has shot by for me.
Question Author
I like the fact that I compel you to take an interest in me, Bedknobs. Are you stalking me?! :o)
nah I just remember your posts because they disgust me usually :)
Question Author
If my posts are so disgusting, why don't you report them to Ed? They are my opinions, which are my entitlement, regardless of what you, or anyone else thinks of them. Just because you find them disgusting doesn't mean that they are. Some replies to this OP were supportive of it. I STILL commend it to the house!
