  1. The vaccine probably activates your Debt Card and draws money out of you bank and pays it to Matt Hancock and his mates. That's what I'm telling my bank is the cause of my unauthorised overdraft. "It wasn't me governor. It was the vaccine".
  2. https://www.hhs.gov/immunization/basics/work/protection/index.html Get vaccinated and protect your community.
  3. God preserve us from "economic with the truth" toad Matt Hancock.
  4. To, The DADDY, Give us a hint then. What is the total number of UK deaths where COVID19 is mentioned as a cause on the death certificate?
  5. https://www.sciencefocus.com/news/everything-you-need-to-know-about-b-1-617-2-the-indian-variant-of-coronavirus/
  6. https://news.sky.com/story/covid-19-mps-urge-ministers-to-maintain-ban-on-foreign-holidays-after-17-may-amid-variant-fears-1229377 Are we ever going to be able to travel abroad? As far as importing new variants. Well, they are already here. The virus spews them out interminably.
  7. Makapaka Corona viruses spew out variants continuously-never ending. I think you are right. I was really looking forward to an unrestricted summer. But we cannot go one with restrictions indefinitely. How are we going to extricate ourselves from this dilemma ?
  8. Pattricia Yes I had to pay-but it was worth it
  9. Yosemite Sam. "Why did anyone ever listen to this guy ". Good points made about Ferguson. Your source is shown below. https://statmodeling.stat.columbia.edu/2020/05/08/so-the-real-scandal-is-why-did-anyone-ever-listen-to-this-guy/ As etiquette ,what you wrote should be in between inverted commas.Then I'll know it's a quote.
  10. I had a number of sessions delivered by a trained medical practitioner. Yes it worked for me.
  11. If the documents-digital or otherwise- can be faked. Then the real ones have no value whatsoever. It had to happen-it's the kind of world we live in. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-56489574
  12. This is certainly good news.However, are we ever going to see the removal of restriction? Will politicians and public health officials ever let this crisis go ? There isn't a vaccine in the world that offers"complete protection". But will that fact be used to keep us in measures indefinitely? The only way out of measures-as far as I can see- is updated vaccines,annual vaccination-and boosters- and the embracing of the concept of societal acceptable risk of infection . The youth are already getting restless against measures.
  13. Mr T Critical Reasoning.A Practical Introduction .3rd edition .Anne Thomson. Pub .Routledge. ISBN 10:0-415-44586-3, It does what it says on the cover. Practical exercises in reasoning. Well worth having on the bookshelf. Stay well.
  14. The WHO announced on Thursday (last) that vaccination in Europe was not happening quickly enough to slow down transmission. New infections have risen for three straight weeks. And more people were dying from Cov-19 than a year ago. What on earth is going on ?
  15. AKAMD, I got caught up in the Tottenham riots of 2011 (Conditional.Not on purpose but by circumstances-going home from friends). It was very,very scary. However, I agree with you.
  16. Annie Bynnol Thank you for all those valuable links. It's hard not to view RT as a propaganda platform and not really a news outlet. I read the A.Taylor article. Most of it IMO is rhetoric but the following has the most value.
  17. Victor, That is interesting. I wonder why Pascal cannot disabuse the authorities of their reluctance to give the vaccine to under 50s.
  18. Source: Renegade Ink. RT. Interviewee. Andra Taylor (might be wrong spelling).Assiatant Director-at some place. Context: Vaccine nationalism. "pausing vaccination programmes so that the rest of the world can catch up". I would appreciate it if any of you clever people on this thread,could explain to me what she is on about. EU may hold back on millions of vaccines to the UK. Such action would definitely pause the UK programme. The centralised procurement programme in Europe has failed. France has gone crackers with respect to Astrazenca. Changing the rules on a daily basis. You couldn't script this nonsense.
  19. Anybody know what the 6 months worth of measures are going to be?
  20. redruby, Thank you for that.
  21. Andyofborg, I don't see breaking up big pharma will do any good at all. ECCOnoob, I agree with you entirely. Ben Goldacre's book "Bad Pharma" is worth a read.
  22. Annie Bynnol, Do you have any idea how many people have been vaccinated in Sheffield ? I'd like to know the demographic of the cases that are contributing to the slow increases in cases. There has to be an identifiable vector that is driving the increase.
  23. I heard a talking head on tele this morning banging on about breaking up pharmaceutical giants, because they are not sharing Cov-19 vaccine technology. Is it true or false ,that big pharma is holding back the quest for global vaccination as a consequence of big pharma's reluctance to share their vaccine science? https://khn.org/news/article/can-pfizer-and-moderna-end-the-pandemic-by-sharing-their-vaccine-designs-its-not-that-simple/
  24. RollingJ Definitely with you on that.
