I've never been into a Primark shop but good on them, nice to see some corporates behaving in a responsible manner and I will look into what they sell - good behaviour like this should be rewarded with custom where we can.  Those who behave like shits we should embargo. Hopefully they sell wine!

The government can take a flying f&*k at a rolling doughnut now. How much longer do they want folks to place their lives on hold?

With UK vaccinations going so well, the risk of overloading the NHS should be largely negated? Thus even if we see a rise in ‘cases’ connected to the Europe situation, significant hospitalisations and deaths should be avoided. Deaths a couple of days ago were reported as 10. No context given by the media of course but surely more people are dying each day now for much more ‘routine’ reasons?

If the NHS was the justification for the lockdowns we should not see the same restrictions as before.

As Barry says, at some point we have to get on and start living and coping with this before the world/economy/mental health drops irrevocably off a cliff...

That is on the assumption of the vaccine protection staying for a decent period. Watch this space I’d suggest.

We are having good figures not only because of the vaccine but also because of the lockdown restrictions. We do have a planned route out of lockdown and not everyone is vaccinated yet.

This is a pandemic and not just an epidemic, the fly in the ointment is variants of the virus. Very few countries have been as good as us at vaccinating. The vaccines may not work for some of the variants and, heaven forbid, we may find ourselves back at square one (but with a better understanding of the situation).

Not all lockdown rules should be rescinded.

Most experts are of the opinion that the coronavirus will be with us for a long time to come.

I'm sure I read this morning that just 32 people have been hospitalised having had a single dose of vaccine :thumbup:

Which is excellent. the issue is that the Brazillian strain and now possibly the Indian strain are mutating to a point where the efficacy of the vaccine is reducing. Just pray that the vaccine can be modified before these change to a point that the vaccines can no longer keep the virus in a downward trajectory.

(or we could close our borders like NZ/Aus)

Which is fantastic, however, too premature to say it’s a success. My eldest has tested positive twice now and was hospitalised Sunday night due to heart rate / pain issues. She has also had her first jab and even had antibodies when tested in December after her first bout.

@Barrykearley Sorry to hear that, hope it's short-term and she's soon FULLY recovered.  There are some on social media who'd then try and use that as "proof the vaccines don't work" not taking account of the fact that they're not stated to be 100% effective, they just didn't find any such cases in the (much smaller scale than the UK roll-out) trials

Total of all deaths in the past 5 weeks have been lower than the same period of the rolling 5 year average

32 out of more than 74000 CV19 hospitalisations .. seems pretty damn amazing to me.

Thanks chap - she had long Covid issues in December - just the same after her October case. It’s the same again - sure it will be just fine.

So  a few of my friends went to London yesterday for the Unite for Freedom march.

I thought Id see how they got on. Searched BBC News...nothing. Its not there?

My Facebook feed is full of videos from the event and ITV and reuters have covered it.

I am shocked I know BBC pretend to be impartial but surely they should report on a 100,000 people marching in central London?

They reported on 50 extinction rebellion idiots breaking windows though.

Yes - without question the government should use the criminal legislation it’s put into effect to criminalise people for going about their normal daily lives. Hilter would never have allowed it to happen.
