Coronavirus - Part Two.

Recommended Posts

Remember the old adage "why waste 10 words when 2 will do?"

We called it "the Indian variant" for about a fortnight, before somebody somewhere decided to take umbrage at the expression, forcing us now to hear "the delta variant, thought to have originated in India".

Very irritating.

They don't need to they just censor the ones that disagree.

 

Here's a challenge - if you use Facebook go on there right now and type a status that either plays down the virus or says negative things about the vaccine, see what happens to that post.

Exactly.

I’m confused now. 
 

Are the U.K. Government paying people to censor the news? Or not?

 

Facebook isn’t a news source by the way. Maybe that’s where you are going wrong.

As a hypothetical, do you think you have a way of detecting 100,000 extra deaths based on your own direct experience? I do not think I could.

You can do it like this:

I think it’s the Martians who pay the Economist to peddle false info. But it’s worth a read anyway.

 

 

 

Sorry but I think you have misunderstood: the challenge is to do it without other information sources just using your own direct experience.

Mainly due to people equating "Indian variant" with "It's Indians people fault" and causing problems as a result.

 

We have 2 good universities in Sheffield and it's not beyond the realms of possibility that they could discover a "Sheffield Variant" - do you want people blaming and attacking you for that?

It isn't a news source but its a way that information spreads all social media is censoring anything negative towards Covid/vaccines - why would that be?

I went to the pub last night and everyone looked well.

 

If you scale that level of wellness up to the total U.K. population, that proves that everything is alright.

Positive stuff and scaremongering is allowed to remain.

I don’t believe that they are. You’ve had free reign on here telling us that the Lizards have all the news outlets in their pockets. Nobody has stopped you.

 

People oppose views like yours because those views are bat**** crazy and present a danger to the rest of us.

Did you also go to colleges, schools, Universities, sports halls, libraries, shops, business parks, etc - I do, every week and have done all the way through this "pandemic", still not seen anything to worry about.
