    So today my Dad had his knee replacement op postponed again indefinitely because the NHS is still holding onto all beds in private hospitals, which they were supposed to release in October.

    I heard Boris during his address say "we need to protect the NHS as the NHS has always been there for us". I just thought well it hasn’t been since Feb for anyone who has had their life saving care cancelled. 

    The NHS is a very emotive subject. You dare say anything bad about it or the nurses and you get crucified. Boris uses this very fact to get people to make choices based on emotion rather than fact.

    The same tactic has been used with the face’s not about you it’s about other people. "What you don’t care if you infect granny and she dies."

    The phone will be chucked in the bin. 

    I have one I keep at work and only turn it on to get codes from my online bank account when I set up a new payment. Other than that I dont turn it on.

    Anyway my mate is a PHD Biomedical scientist and told me to watch this vid.

    They can now treat it much more effectively so what used to be called the case/fatality ratio is significantly lower. Also, recent statistics show that nationally deaths from respiratory diseases are tracking historically normal levels, with COVID simply replacing many fatalities from 'flu and pneumonia.

    Thanks for your insight I find this very interesting. 

    To me the number of cases is kind of irrelevant if the thing isn't fatal in the main. The number of people being hospitalized should be the thing being reported after all wasn't this lock down all about protecting the NHS?

    Im not heartless and what ever it is I wouldn't  want people getting it if possible in the same way I wouldn't want people to get influenza or pneumonia. My sister in law gets pneumonia every year almost without fail. Shes overweight and a smoker. Most years she ends up in hospital for a few days. She has pneumonia now and is currently in hospital. I was most surprised when they actually went with the pneumonia diagnosis rather than Covid which I guessed they might do!

    Government policy seems to all about number of cases but if most people are not hospitalized or become seriously ill whats the point of any of these measures? We had better start taking action against this runny nose pandemic this is running rife through my kids school!

     A notice from FB popped up stating this video contained fake news/information (or something of the like) and should I wish to continue they would highlight this 'fact' on my post.

    Wow :shock:

    The ‘Ministry of Truth’ strikes again. I can’t believe the way debate over controversial topics is now shut down, and the alarming creep towards totalitarian rule.

    I am genuinely shocked this has been removed!

    A calm educated discussion and its removed for violating terms!

    Not being able to question the mainstream narrative doesn't help anyone. Shutting down discussion makes me wonder why? Truth doesn't need defending. Arguments for and against are all valid.

    Im guessing your daughter has given you insights which maybe opposed to my own thoughts but I for sure would like to hear them. I am a cynical bugger but am happy to concede if I know im in the wrong. Its how our society should work.

    At the moment the vid is still up on bitchute.


    Love you all.

  6. @Kimbers Genuine question. Why did the lady risk so much by crossing the channel when once in the EU she was safe? You suggested she didnt speak English very well so where was she heading? Just to into England or to London?

  7. Hi

    I dont think a GT3 should have a heavy clutch. My 1985 turbo is just normal. Never noticed it being any different to any normal car to be honest.

    The GT3 Im sure you are aware is often cited as maybe the best Esprit they made. Just about perfect. That said MJK told me he thought the late Excel were the best 9xx engine cars they made which you already have.

  8. I still stand by my earlier post. Why not ask Clive to ask his mum? Ive got a gearbox Ive just done for classic want me to ask? 

    How many times do we see people say they have Colins old car?? (Every green Esprit belonged to him)

    Nearly as many time as Ive seen people start Esprit V8 conversions...


    Actually did I mention my car was Ayrton Senna's Car? It says Senna's car felt tipped inside the body so must be true!

  9. Hi Chris

    Ive had a couple of glitches recently.

    I tried to adjust someones post as a mod and it wouldn't let me. I tried a couple of times then the dialog box opened and I was able to.

    Had a similar trying to reply to a thread and the text box wouldn't open. Refreshed a couple of times and it was fine.

    Maybe the newer update might need a bit of cleaning that said im on an old windows 7 laptop.
