    Buried under all the noise eminating from the States this week were two more effective treatments identified for Covid-19 in a British clinical trial: rheumatoid arthritis drugs tocilizumab and sarilumab.
    From now, hospitals in the UK are being encouraged to give ICU patients tocilizumab which appears to reduce mortality rates by 24%.
    The rapid scientific fightback in the 9 months of the pandemic has been truly remarkable.

      Charger’s Vax Fact #11
      One third of all over-80s have now been vaccinated in the UK including I’m delighted to say my lovely mother-in-law.
      200,000 people a day are now receiving jabs.
      Great effort.

            hm. this is getting interesting Brother….

            I see you’re going with the special inflatable friend theorem

            wheras I’m going with the transvestism angle

            who are we to judge I suppose but would u fancy a small wager?

          2. Brother Barnabas

            he mentioned in a previous comment that mumsy was being a real stickler about him wearing her stockings and leaving the sex-wee-wee in them

            getting ‘Kate’ on the internet was actually her idea, said it was closer to what the other boys were doing

          3. goldenbrown

            well now Brother…see I wasn’t going for such a direct sex angle like yours atall atall (although he may well be rewarding himself with some celebratory autoerotic Mrs. Doubtfire episodes when someone real agrees with him on a subjectmatter under discussion here and on whatever other message boards he tries to participate on….maybe this has become more difficult of late i.e. the bringing them out into the open on discussion threads here…a reward spiral tsk.)

            but I’d be more inclined towards alter egos rather than blowup friends (all imaginary of course so we’d concur there I suppose)

            for me the logistics involved in hiding/managing/maintaining 3 or 4 different blowup paraphernalia from his mother would be a fairly big ask under the same roof…..she’d surely cop the special deliveries from Japan alone, no?

            his use of the queens English is reasonably good, my guess is that mam forced him to take elocution lessons as a child while all the other boys were out playing football on the street (that’s probably where the transvestism started with Ms. Strictpants McNursemaid)

            there’s Mrs Charger, a Mother in Law (classic that), Kate (possibly a Katie Hopkins character?…watch out imaginary Mrs Charger, lol) and probably a few others configured in line what he believes his various gammony worship icons like Farage, Mogg, Partridge, Arghleen, Wilson, Kitchener, Churchill et al might find attractive. see where I’m going there?

            btw. what you wrote there got flashburned onto my eyes for a while but it’s gradually fading off so no harm done. I think.

      What’s “remarkable” is Tommy Charage now being first to post each day and the UK officially holding the number one spot for most deaths in Europe. Remarkable too is that only the United States of Fruitcakes have a higher death toll.

    The UK’s Road Haulage Association warned Mr Gove that introducing some of the world’s most complex customs processes with next to no training and implementation time and insufficient capacity left industry “one storm/Covid event/boat breakdown” away from having serious supply issues between the North and Britain.

    Mr Gove said on Friday that difficulties in moving goods between Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK will get worse before they get better.

      It’s a shocking admission by Gove. And so glib. Either the UK have decided to ferment social unrest in the North (to what end ?) or they are pushing to get rid of the failed state and ditch the c.£10bn they spend/lose every year in propping it up. Now, as they have very little hope of being allowed to walk away, that leaves social unrest. Other than being a supposed tool with which to beat an indifferent EU, what do they really hope to achieve ?

    Ronald Reagan once said ‘If fascism ever comes to America, it will come in the name of liberalism.’
    The unilateral banning of Trump in a co-ordinated campaign by social media platforms on the day Democrats assumed control of the Senate committees that oversee them will set a precedent.
    The Biden administration will not only be in their pocket but every despot and dictator around the world stamping down on free speech will simply be able to justify their actions by pointing out what Twitter and the rest did to Trump.
    And Putin and China will use Twitter to do it while they poison and incarcerate their own citizens and undermine Western democracy.

        Well Dominion v Sidney The Kracken Powell will be a very interesting watch here

        Especially testing whether she was acting for a client
        Or not
        Under a professional engagement
        Like will she be permitted the benefit of Client Attorney Privilege protection
        and whether her Professional Indemnity holds up

          The moment she left Trump’s team and was no longer litigating for her client, yet continued to defame(as per their lawsuit) Dominion in the public domain suggests she’s on a very very weak footing.

          1. Brother Barnabas

            youd have to assume she received notice of the action a while ago – certainly before it became public knowledge

            and assume that was the reason for the split

            designed to protect one of them

          2. V aka Frilly Keane

            I just read into the split that it was an opportunity to fundraise separately
            Under their PAC conditions
            Away from the Political Campaign and GOP
            And away from the Oval Office

            I never considered it was to put Trump out of thr reach of Dominion

            Thing is
            Was there ever an engagement letter holding up the relationship
            Was there ever an actual client giving instructions to their lawyer
            Who was she acting for?

        I’m very uncomfortable with the whole tech billionaires controlling so much of the public Voice
        Their Platforms have come to be our everyday forms of communication and public discourse, news gathering, updating and sharing
        We all walk around them everyday

        Twitter & Co created all these Patriot Q Trump etc audiences and followers
        They enabled the whipping up, the meme’ification and the organising
        They created that marketplace and opened up those forums
        And then they took it all away – all in collision, together, like a cartel
        Like Price Fixing

        That’s far too dangerous for all of us – no matter what you use their platforms for

        And bare in mind – this Silicon Valley VVIP guest list did nothing when vulnerable people
        People who were desperate to be seen and heard and to belong in a Country that only cares about Fame, Winners, Power & Wealth
        Were being exploitated by self interest and narcissistic con artists. And there most definitely was plenty of that going on within the Q MAGA circuits lads. Trump himself has collected over 300 million under Stop the Steal campaign alone

        These Tech giants built churches and pulpits and opened them up to shady fake preachers in the revival tent tradition, for free, and digitised their fake miracles and watched on as they passed the collection plates around, and maybe even took a cut
        So they are just a culpable for what happened last week

        But – seeing what’s being circulated in the last couple of days
        Like from the likes of Lin Wood etc – emergency blackout being part of the plan
        FFS
        Or about that poor girl that was shot, real or not, a gun was fired on the news from inside the Capitol building, so shut up

        I do find myself sliding into a tis for their own good at this stage
        And I don’t like that about myself one bit
