    Two tests per week for freedom eh Boris? Can’t see that going down too well. Michael Gove just wrote an article for The Guardian promoting the use of covid passports. It’s got way over 6k comments. I got through about 2k of them…..about 99% negative….and mostly very angry. Of course, once the covid passports get pushed on Paddy it’ll be 90% in support of it probably. Doubt there will even ever be any discussion.

            Wouldn’t kick him while he’s down, and to be fair, he’s kicking himself lately, the poor dear.

          Still agitating the dingle-berries 14 hours after a late-night post.

            Oh, wouldn’t it be nice if your “Work” was done here, for all our sakes?
            Please let it be so, you miserable bigot.

            Papi.
            Rhymes with nappy.
            How very appropriate.
            Yours needs changing.

            The berry still be a dingling.
            Over a post from just after midnight.
            Not sure if that’s worse than posting 31 times about me and nothing else in a single day.
            Either way this poor sap is becoming the BS court jester, trying to attract attention by hitting himself over the head with a pig’s bladder on a stick.

    Katya Polyakova, the Medical Director of a Priory Group hospital in Kent, speaks out in the British Medical Journal: One of the brave few to do so.

    ,what I am currently struggling with is the failure to report the reality of the morbidity caused by our current vaccination program within the health service and staff population. The levels of sickness after vaccination is unprecedented and staff are getting very sick and some with neurological symptoms which is having a huge impact on the health service function. Even the young and healthy are off for days, some for weeks, and some requiring medical treatment. Whole teams are being taken out as they went to get vaccinated together.

    Mandatory vaccination in this instance is stupid, unethical and irresponsible when it comes to protecting our staff and public health. We are in the voluntary phase of vaccination, and encouraging staff to take an unlicensed product that is impacting on their immediate health, and I have direct experience of staff contracting Covid AFTER vaccination and probably transmitting it. In fact, it is clearly stated that these vaccine products do not offer immunity or stop transmission. In which case why are we doing it? There is no longitudinal safety data (a couple of months of trial data at best) available and these products are only under emergency licensing. What is to say that there are no longitudinal adverse effects that we may face that may put the entire health sector at risk?..

    ..Coercion and mandating medical treatments on our staff, of members of the public especially when treatments are still in the experimental phase, are firmly in the realms of a totalitarian Nazi dystopia and fall far outside of our ethical values as the guardians of health. “

      Ah. If only Ms Polyakova didn’t mention Nazis in one single paragraph in her piece.

      For as we all know, even the single utterance of the “Nazi word”, will completely invalidate what a person talking about.

      I’ve even invalidated what I’ve said here by saying Nazi. ;)

      Wait? Does an anti Nazi rally invoke Godwin’s law by the use of the word Nazi in their chants? Thereby cancelling themselves and making the whole exercise pointless.

      This stuff keeps me up at night.

        Proclaiming one word ‘Godwins’ as an argument against an educated post as above says a lot about the capability of a person to think or have rational debate about Covid. Proclaiming it in CAPITALS with multiple exclamation marks doubles down on what it says about that capability.

    Charger’s flowing lockdown locks got a trim over the weekend by a visiting hairdresser attending to Lady Charger.
    She tells me business is brisk and has picked up substantially over the course of March.
    There is, according to her, widespread disregard of lockdown laws.
    Predictably the population has grown weary of an incompetent government badly managing a poorly-organised EU vaccine delivery programme.
    It’s clear the poor communication and constant cock-ups mean they’ve lost the dressing room.
    Those two Plastic Surgery Paddies have suffered a witch’s ducking stool of publicity over the weekend yet if they’d gone to France where infection rates and deaths are far worse than Dubai no-one would have ever heard of them.
    Mehole and Slaphead with Leo the Leak constantly on manoeuvres are the Three Stooges of Covid Ireland.
