  1. I see that Laurence Fox is causing more controversy....At this rate he's going to overtake Katie Hopkins in the uber troll race: "After a long period of consultation with myself, an extended review period and proper due diligence conducted with myself, I’ve received the badge that I ordered from Amazon. Thank you for being there for me."

Thank you for being there for me. #anxiety https://t.co/D3bp3M7kY9" / Twitter Understandably, people are fuming, including Tory MP Simon Hoare: "I hadn’t realised that being a first class, ocean going, chateau bottled, nuclear powered prick was an exemption from wearing a mask. What a selfish loathsome tool this man is."

  2. Yes, I presume so because giving anesthetic injections is a routine part of a dentists role.
  3. She'll be at home there I think Twitter have banned her, she was sacked from LBC, even the Mail didn't want her anymore. She was nearly made bankrupt after she libeled Jack Monroe. In a perverse kind of way I hope that hatey Katie becomes the leader of UKIP. I do feel sorry for her children though.
  4. Just been reported that the head of the Covid recovery group, Steve Baker, has told Boris Johnson that his leadership is under threat if he doesn't outline a roadmap for when the restrictions are going to be lifted.
  5. No I agree that many low paid workers can't afford to self isolate, and I know that New York is often quoted where those self isolating are given every support. The compliance rate as a result is something like 90% IIRC
  6. The misinformation that Weatherspoons are complaining about: "One of the flyers was pictured still visible in some pub windows this month. It reproduces a news story from 20 November last year, which cast doubt on the dire warnings of government scientists about the threat posed by the second Covid-19 wave." That's wasn't misinformation, the second wave has been caused by the new variant and its increased transmissibility. No some people don't trust the scientists or Government Ministers, but I get the impression that many simply use that as an excuse to do what they want to do, and stuff the consequences. Now that's fine, if those were the only individuals who suffered the consequences. But we know that they're not. Yes Track and Trace was and is a farce. Earlier on in this thread I referenced one local area, in this country, who had developed their own and was far more successful than the national Serco one. No scientists don't agree on everything, but Government has to make up its mind based on the information given. I do know that some scientists say we should've 'gone for herd immunity'. Though I've never understood that because herd immunity is an aim that we all want, and the means to get there is through vaccination. I acknowledge that many have died as a consequence of not getting operations, because many hospitals diverted resources to tackling Covid. I can't remember, but early in the pandemic, I'm sure that Government ministers said that research was done into the human costs of letting the virus rip versus the strategy of lockdown.
  7. It's not harmed the career of Priti 'let me be absolutely clear' Patel
  8. I would also add that it's a shame a large national employer sought to use its position to spread misinformation about COVID https://www.independent.co.uk/news/business/news/covid-wetherspoon-pub-lockdown-poster-b1785537.html
  9. This might explain a great deal Fisheries minister did not read Brexit bill as she was busy at nativity | Brexit | The Guardian
  10. No I get that communications from officials hasn't been great. With regards to masks, I do remember initial debate was about their efficacy, and then the need to dispose of them carefully once used. In this regard we did lose vital months. However, given the newness of the situation some confusion is understandable. I have less cynicism about Government than I do about those individuals who have throughout this pandemic and deliberately sought to deny the existence of COVID or spread conspiracy theories. I have absolutely no idea what these people get from doing this. Battling Coronavirus is hard enough, why on earth people would want to inflame the situation is beyond me. Questioning rules is fine, often doing so elicits a clearer explanation of the whys
  11. It just doesn't make sense does it? Lockdown measures were stricter and more adhered to last Spring / Summer, yet we are told that the new variant is much more transmissible. Whether this is a failure of Government communication, a knowledge that a vaccine is on the way, or a lack of understanding / unwillingness to comply; or a mixture of all of the above which is probable. Amongst the lessons that Government needs to learn, I think individuals need to learn - not everyone, because as we know, many have really gotten on board with the hows and whys of lockdown, but some haven't. I'm afraid for those unwilling, the carrot isn't enough of an inducement, so perhaps the stick is necessary.
  12. I agree. Bear in mind that Rupert Murdoch's GB News is coming to a TV station near us very soon.
  13. I have a sickening feeling in my stomach that Trump's supporters will not let this lie. I hope I'm wrong.
  14. Further information on this issue David Schneider on Twitter: "“These food parcels are unacceptable and don’t meet the standards we expect” says government who set the standards the food parcels basically met. https://t.co/OkqZPUQggK" / Twitter
  15. Oh that's a shock. Mort has been part of Sheffield Forum since I've been on here over 10 years ago. Sincere condolences to family and friends x
