Re: Why it's Still Important to Argue Against Lockdowns

Resistance is a way of life, an intellectual and emotional reaction to anything which threatens liberty" It's a stupid way to react to a force of nature, King Canute showed that. He thought he should be free to command the tide! Bit pedantic fon, but Canute was trying to prove to his court that in ...

Re: Total deaths due to covid19 drop from 146k to 111k in a flash!

What you call lockdown related deaths should be called pandemic related deaths. Impact on NHS treatment availability was reduced by lockdown. A far more relevant consideration is the economic impact of lockdown bleeding into medium and long term health outcomes. This will be a real issue. Indeed no...

Re: NHS guidance does not say most under 65s should have the jab

"It's bogus the website does not exist."- fon Afraid it isn't, go to Gov.uk search for open tenders and you will find it. It is for a Northern Ireland contract and not UK wide so it seems. Admittedly the YT channel referencing this is somewhat vague on that fact and is a bit narrow in its narrative ...

Re: Vaccine opinion around here seems heavily biased against

Being generous in response to your posed question, I would say yes and no. Yes in that there is a wide range of opinion on these forums regarding vaccinations and no in that there is a majority of "anti-vaxxers". Reading through the posts I get the impression that the majority feel it is a matter of...

Re: "Sceptical" or just "Opposed to"

Fon, I would hope that any plan to manage this risk would be less convoluted but fear as with all bureaucratic nonsense they will use 50 words when 1 will do. It would probably be a waste of time anyway as they will throw it in the bin when something new comes along, just as was done last year with ...

Re: "Sceptical" or just "Opposed to"

True there is a lot of "noise" on these forums, from both ends of the spectrum! But this is always the case. As for "dubious" arguments, those who make the statement offer no examples or evidence to support the statement and as for dubious arguments what about those that purport that these lockdown ...

Re: Capt Sir Tom Moore dies at 100

Absolutely agree with LadyG's sentiments and to add my own, Sir Tom was one of the last of a generation who embodied all of the good in humanity, humble, generous and self-deprecating, a generation we should be proud of. Neil Oliver expressed this far better this morning on Talk Radio( see YT for in...

Re: How do people feel about this.

Charles, you asked how people feel about the cited article? Well after reading the piece from the Standard and the only other 2 I could find about the case, from the Guardian and the BBC, my feelings are that they are very poor examples of journalism. I say this as all the articles are not reporting...

Re: There's no need to apologise for being a lockdown sceptic

Obliged to argue? No, for me it is just an observational analysis of the figures put in front of me where the curve, either increasing or decreasing, does not exhibit any significant acceleration or deceleration after the point lockdown is initiated or lifted in some manner, rather continuing in the...

Re: Anti-Vaxxers

Re thinksaboutit @ 22/01 I think you are confusing a "lockdown sceptic" with an "anti-vaxxer" , as is becoming more common in the latest round of debates the two terms are having a blanket thrown over them whereas you can be one and not the other. My reading of those on here, who by being here would...
