Very rude you lot - why is that.

 

The quotation marks obviously went over your head.

 

Like I said, pay more attention.

Top 50 farcical Covid moments (I know many of you would rather not be reminded of some of this, but trust me, many (not all.......) are really funny) :  

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/columnists/2022/01/18/pilloried-lockdown-sceptic-now-clear-right-quite-things/

 

1. “Church yesterday. Wafer but no wine for communion. Service followed by wine and biscuits to mark the vicar’s retirement.”

2. “The one where you could work in a control room with multiple people for 12 hours then be breaking the law if you sat on a bench drinking coffee with one of them.”

3. “Forming a socially distanced queue at the airport before being sardined into a packed plane with the same people, two hours later.”

4. “Swings in our local park put into quarantine or removed – even though children were barely at risk from Covid as swings were outside.”

5. “No butterfly stroke allowed while swimming.”

6. “Pubs with no volume on the TV.”

7. “Not allowing people to sit on a park bench. My elderly aunt kept fit by walking her dog every day, but she needed to rest. Since that rule, she stopped going out. She went downhill and died last April.”

8. “I got thrown out of a McDonald’s for refusing to stand on a yellow circle. I was the only customer.”

9. “Yellow and black hazard tape across public seats and benches outdoors.”

10. “I’m stuck in the infant in-patient ward with my nine-day-old sick baby, post C-section, unable to look after him. My husband (same household) is not allowed to be here with us. I’m having panic attacks, which is preventing me from producing milk for the baby.”

11. “I was advised by a council worker to keep my dog on a lead because people might stop to pet her and congregate too closely.”

12. “My bed-ridden mother-in-law with dementia in a care home where only ‘window visits’ were allowed. Mum was on the first floor. Had to wait for someone to die on the ground floor so she could be moved down there and finally seen by her family. After 12 months.”

13. “Two people allowed to go for a walk on a golf course. If they took clubs and balls, it was a criminal offence.”

14. “The one-way system in my local pub, which meant that to visit the loo you had to make a circular journey through the building, ensuring you passed every table.”

15. “My dad was failing in his care home. We weren’t allowed to visit him until the doctor judged he was end-of-life care because of one positive case in the home. We had 24 hours with him before he passed.”

16. “People falling down the escalator on the Underground because they were frightened of touching the handrails – even though you couldn’t get Covid from surfaces.”

17. “Rule of Six. My wife and I have three children so we could meet either my wife’s mum or her dad, but not both at the same time.”

18. “Nobody solved an airborne virus transmission with a one-way system in Tesco.”

19. “How about not being allowed for several months – by law – to play tennis outdoors with my own wife? We’d have been further apart from each other on court than in our own home.”

20. “On two occasions, I was stopped and questioned while taking flowers to my mother’s grave. One time, a police officer even asked for my mum’s name. No idea what he would have done with that information.”

21. “Birmingham City Council cutting the grass in two-metre strips – so the weeds could social-distance?”

22. “Northampton police checking supermarket baskets for non-essential items.”

23. “All the children at school were asked to bring in a favourite book, but it had to be quarantined for two days before being ‘exposed’ to the rest of the class.”

24. “Dr Hilary on Good Morning Britain advising people to wear masks on the beach – and that it would be a good idea to swim in the sea with one on, too.”

25. “Gyms and exercise classes forced to close, but fast-food outlets remained open.”

26. “They taped off every other urinal in my workplace.”

27. “Sign on the inside of work bathroom door: close toilet lid before flushing to prevent plumes of Covid-19.”

28. “We held our carol service in a local park, but had to send out invitations by word of mouth, rather than email, so we’d have plausible deniability if stopped by police.”

29. “Having to wear a disposable apron and gloves while visiting my mother in a care home, while she was on the other side of a floor-to-ceiling Perspex wall.”

30. “Scotch eggs. You couldn’t drink in a pub unless you also had a ‘substantial’ meal.”

31. “Testing of totally healthy people and making them stop work based on a questionable positive test result, when they have no symptoms, creating NHS staff shortages, cancelled operations. Things that, you know, actually kill people…”

32. “My son works in the NHS on the Covid ward and could go to the local Sainsbury's for his lunch. But when we were ill and isolating at home, he had to isolate as well – for 10 days.”

33. “My eight-year-old granddaughter telling me they weren’t allowed to sing Happy Birthday at school for her friend’s ninth birthday.”

34. “It was illegal to see your parents in their back garden, but legal to meet them in a pub garden with lots of other people.”

35. “I had to abandon my weekly choir practice – but my husband was allowed to sing as a spectator at a football match.”

36. “They removed all the bins in Regent's Park and Hampstead Heath.”

37. “Having a flask of tea or coffee on a walk meant it was classified as a picnic – and thus verboten.”

38. “Bring your own biro to a dental appointment to fill in a form declaring you do not have Covid.”

39. “My neighbour refused to hang the washing out to dry – they thought the sheets might catch Covid and infect them.”

40. “My 12-year-old had to sit alone at her grandfather’s funeral – her first experience of one – even though we drove there together and hugged outside. There were three officials watching us all to ensure we didn’t break the rules.”

41. “We could only go outdoors once a day for exercise.”

42. “In pubs, wearing a mask to get from the door to the table, and the table to the toilet – but not wearing a mask while sitting down.”

43. “People in a Tier 3 area walking two minutes down the road for a pint in Tier 2.”

44. “In Wales, supermarkets were allowed to stay open, but the aisles containing children’s clothing and books were taped off. Because buying a baby’s jumper is so much more perilous than picking up a pint of milk.”

45. “The pallbearers all but threw my mother’s coffin in the grave and ran away. They had her down as a Covid death, but she died of cancer.”

46. “The one-way systems around supermarkets that led to people being forced into parts they didn’t want to be in, making them spend more time in the shop – while Covid simply circulated over the top of the shelves.”

47. “Children abandoned by social services and left in the clutches of terrible parents.”

48. “Police breaking into our student house and pinning my girlfriend by the neck up against the wall. I said: ‘This is England – you’re not allowed to do that.’”

49. “Residents of care homes forgetting who they were during the long months when family were not allowed to visit them.”

50. “Dying alone. How many died alone? How many?”

I put the video in perspective. A scared child, a woman/nurse that maybe is putting the swab up his nose a bit too far and roughly. Any parent knows that children cry at a small injection that we would brush off as nothing (unless you have a fear of them). IMO it's just another over-reaction video that's posted to get more anti vaccine people shouting 'cruelty' to children/ The Vac is useless. 

 

Put the video in context, the young boy is just scared. It's a nose swab, nothing more! 

 

What does get me thinking is when a person thinks a cotton bud is an evil thing. Very strange!

For me to travel, I took the PCR test. August 2021. (Negative)

 

The nurse shoved your "cotton bud" so far up into my sinus, and twisted it around, so much so that she busted a capilliary in my nose, and it wouldn't stop bleeding for two days. as an adult I just put it down to collateral damage, but if I was a kid, I'd probably have a lifetime fear of hospitals, similar to the fear of dentists I had from the Lowfields school clinic.

 

It wasn't until I got older I was able to go to a dentist to find and remove the broken off stumps they had left behind in my gums.

Trust the experts, "follow the science"


It seems that today you have found some experts that you agree with,or should I say agree with you.

Thats a step in a reasonable direction in that it shows that your views have been represented in the past and sometimes been countered and out voted by others

Are you still a pal of trumps even though he advocates the vaccine?

Never met the guy!

 

But am a fan of his domestic economic policies and his foreign policies. We live in a dangerous world.

 

Like my barber or my local moto guy here, I could care less about his personal predilections, as long as I get a decent hair cut and get home safe and sound!

 

And yes, like him, I'm fully vaxxed!  :)

As a child 6-11yrs I had regular nasal cauterisation procedures, far from pleasant then,  it's no doubt still a procedure that's currently used and has a place as a treatment.... painful at the time, but now long forgotten, i can relate with the dentist as an 11yr i had a cracked rib, from the school dentist,  using his knee for leverage when extracting a tooth to allow for a brace. 

 

Doctors, Nurses and parents carryout unpleasant procedures on children everyday, not every child will be mentally scarred for life, oddly enough I had  overzealous parents, one didn't like vaccines, the other used to argue with everyone, oddly enough as a toddler that included pool attendants, I know which traumatic events affected me the most in life, it certainly wasn't a  chemical nose swab or an electric current that was passed through it.

This isn't a treatment, it's an unnecessary procedure. Not only did they show no empathy, it was filmed and released. Why.

 

All kids going through that will remember. Roll forward 20 years for the consequences.

 

As someone who suffered from nose bleeds, it's surprising you still think this is acceptable.

Shame you didn't get the reference, It's quite well known, nevermind.

Just on the subject of mask wearing.

I am watching  a packed  House at PMQs.

The Government benches are packed with MPs,all wearing face masks,which wasn’t the case when masks were advised.Rees Mogg said that was because they were a close band of brothers.

So if ,as seems to be the way the wind is blowing restrictions are lifted later this month,will all masks be cast aside?
