Re: Was Boris right?

What are lockdowns good at? Hmmmm - let's see a short, but incomplete, list increasing national debt to catastrophic levels ruining the lives and livelihoods of millions creating a devastating pressure on the NHS as delayed treatment and diagnoses mount damaging the bonds of society killing those wh...

Re: What difference has vaccine made?

First off let me stress that what follows is very much a preliminary investigation. I wanted to see if there was any way we could see the effectiveness of vaccination in the official mortality data - to provide external, and independent, confirmation outside of the various studies done. I was very m...

Re: Michael Yeadon's latest video on Rumble 26/04/21

Just ignore the government sponsored turnips - they are only here to disrupt and create a bad atmosphere. They clearly can't carry the argument with any rational analysis or evidence. They keep asking the same moronic questions, making the same ridiculous assertions - despite having so many things e...

Age-Stratified Excess Deaths

I was curious about the age-stratification of excess deaths - so I thought I'd work it out as best I could from the ONS data. Here's the graph I produced Excess deaths EW 2020 to 9th April 2021 v2.jpg So what this graph shows is age-stratified excess deaths in England and Wales for the period 2020 t...

Re: Face masks

Teebs - great stuff. Indeed - seconded. Great post Teebs. It's not really too difficult to understand why masks aren't very effective. I'm talking about those useless paper or cloth masks - not the kind that are designed to provide an effective seal around the face. In order for masks to have any s...

Re: well is is lockdown OR vaccination?

There certainly does seem to be some regional/climate pattern in the data Here's the mortality data (deaths/million) europe.jpg You'll note that the countries to the West (green - top graph)) suffered an initial outbreak in Spring 2020, whereas the central European countries (blue - bottom graph) di...

Re: Vaccine sceptic is the only scientific stance

Don't you understand the phrase "vaccine sceptic"? Scepticism is the default position of rational enquiry as opposed to the credulous stance of vax fans taking as gospel the assertions of interested parties. Absolutely. There's quite a lot about this that, at the very least, gives me pause for thou...

Re: Help me with the maths of PCR and Cases

So no we don't have any idea about box 2 because we dont actually use box 2 for anything. We dont even use it to define a case. From a UK perspective we only have Box 1. Box 2 does not exist. I think you know exactly what I'm driving at here Splatt. We have effectively been using "box 2" type testi...

Back to Basics

Well, what a year and a bit it has been. I don't need to remind anyone on here the truly, truly staggering cost of lockdowns and other measures we have taken. It still seems unimaginable to me - and yet, here we are, it actually happened. If we take the upper bound for the recent UK figure for IFR f...

Re: Help me with the maths of PCR and Cases

Maybe you could clarify something for me Splatt. I imagine 2 black boxes which do tests. The first black box prints an output "positive/negative for exposure to virus" The second black box prints an output "positive/negative for infection" - a positive here being what we have called a "case". Exactl...
