    Statistically, I wonder how many people suspected the case numbers would go up the closer we got to the end of this particular lockdown.

    Charger’s Jab Jibber-Jabber™
    ( I’ve got your number edition )

    In Ireland between Monday and Friday last week only 50,677 vaccines were given – the lowest weekly total so far.
    There were 72,000 AstraZeneca jabs lying unused in storage.
    Ireland is on course to miss its vaccine target for the end of March by about half a million people.
    Or about 45% fewer than they’d planned.

    Meanwhile, in the UK last week a mammoth 4,163,247 doses were given.
    On some days 20 jabs a second were being administered.
    A second.
    Every second.
    All day.

      And retired NHS staff come out in their thousands to administer the jab , free of charge….the spirit and goodwill is absolutely marvellous. Night , Charger.

            I’m torn between liking that the one who is in plain sight as it were advertises their own toxicity and then despairing at the sheer banality of it all.

      But they’re bringing in a £5000 fine for leaving the UK until the end of June.

      With millions vaccinated and only 17 deaths yesterday – down from a peak of 1700 a day in Jan.

      Are you sure you’re going forward?

    Disappointment for the blighters as Nicola Sturgeon remains as Scottish First Minister. Who was dancing up and down a week or so ago, telling us that she was a goner?

    AS if it wasn’t tough enough placing blind trust in the medical authorities, now that the politicians are wading in to the vaccine war we are expected to trust them blindly too?

    may the road rise…. congratulations to Ireland’s Marty Walsh,from the back of a bus in Dorchester….

    “I’ve been thinking about my mother, Mary, and my late father, John, who met in Boston after each immigrated from Ireland. They worked their entire adult lives to make a good life for my brother, Johnny, and me. They found friendship and solidarity among our neighbors in Dorchester, at St. Margaret’s Church, in the immigrant community, and in the labor community. And it was community that helped me survive childhood cancer and get into recovery for alcoholism as a young adult…”
