    She's great value for a Penny (surely worth a Pound of anyone's money) and the more I watch her performances the more I think she should be PM. Angela is one of many she has ripped to pieces with FACTS not fiction whilst doing it without resorting to crass language and veiled insults. A class act in my opinion.

    Agree. Penny for PM. 

  2. UK Government is still behaving as if no one has been vaccinated.

    As Theresa May put it, why are we less free than this time last year when there were no vaccines?

  3. Most, if not all, of the scientists pushing for a delay to lockdown easing have no qualifications to make any recommendations apart from the title "Professor", usually of a no name university, and usually with little or no knowledge of how the virus spreads, its transmissibility, its virulence, its ability to overcome vaccines (none so far) and its effects on hospitalisations and deaths, not to mention the side effects (for example, economic, mental health, lost education and life opportunities) of prolonging lockdown. 

    it is all rent a quote from Professors of "bugger all" for a sound bite to increase clicks. No one actually really knows what they are speculating about as they don't have access to the data, nor are they qualified to make informed observations.

  4. Cummings has an enormous over inflated sense of self importance. He talks as if he was the Government and making decisions, rather than his role as an adviser. He apologies for not having called lockdown earlier, as if it was up to him. Talk about megalomaniac. 

    He is telling his "truth" as if it is fact, conveniently forgetting his own Barnard Castle adventures. Conveniently, according to his narrative, his behaviour and actions are beyond reproach, apart from some mea culpas which are actually attempts to justify his own perceived ineptitude; a false modesty. He should never have been allowed to give a press conference in No. 10's back garden.

    He is bitter, twisted, pathetic and irrelevant. Yesterday's man, if he was ever a man of any importance at all. He forgets that without Johnson's protection and loyalty, he is nothing but a loudmouth with strong views. 

    He is only getting so much airtime and newsprint because the press are out to get a story, any story, to sell more papers and get more clIcks.

    I thought there was an Indian variant as well?

    Yes, but we don't know anything about its transmissibility or whether it is more lethal

    However, to be fair to the 'world scientific community', dont they need to consider that a more deadly, vaccine resistant, variant could evolve if there are enough cases in general circulation?   Then we'd all be in trouble...

    Viruses generally do not become more deadly as that kills more or all its hosts, and end up destroying the virus.

    thus far, we have had the Kent, Brazil, South African and Japan variants .. none of which have been more deadly.

    Aren't some of the lockdown reasons that the transmissibility rate is not known? If they don't lock things down, the transmissibility numbers jump up and your medical services becomes at risk of not being able to cope as well as the members being put at a greater risk which then affects the ability to cope. Right there is a vicious circle.

    Yes and no.

    All vulnerable groups in the UK have now been vaccinated, and 21 million of those have had 2 doses. Therefore, the threat of medical services being overwhelmed is dramatically reduced, if not eliminated. Those younger than 40 form a tiny percentage of those (1) hospitalised, and (2) who died from CV19. The average age of a CV19 death in the UK is higher than average life expectancy in the UK.

  9. Let's not forget that total deaths in the UK for the most recent week was 20% lower than the 5 year average. And total deaths have been lower than the corresponding week of the 5 year average for 8 weeks now.

    and yet, the Scientists (there are so many Professors of all sorts on the news these days, most of who are not qualified in disease control) want to lockdown again because the Indian variant ..
