A prototype armband warning those around people with weakened immune systems to socially distance

Via BBC:

A man with a weakened immune system is calling for recognised, wearable symbols that indicate the need to observe social distance around individuals with the condition.

Neil Collingwood, 64, from Leek, Staffordshire, said the ending of England’s lockdown rules on 19 July was not good news for people less able to fight off Covid-19.

Even people with two vaccine jabs were not completely without risk, he said.

He has made a prototype arm band. It “is bright orange and uses the universal symbol for first aid,” Mr Collingwood explained.

      Indeed millie, That was my first reaction as well, but then realising I would be engaging with a few lonely people literally foaming at the mouth and exfoliating into a perma-rage at the expense of millions of other sick people worldwide just isn’t my own personal thing. Soz.

      More suitable for the ratlickers who were called on to stamp on the heads of elected representatives outside the convention centre. Fierce bang of Kristallnacht off yis.

        “Fierce bang of Kristallnacht off yis.”

        Your barking up the wrong tree.

        I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but…
        I have no political affiliations and avoid all clubs, religious organisations, sects, societies – secret or otherwise and right/left cults etc., no social media accounts(unless broadsheet counts? Lol)… I don’t even have a tesco card…
        Can you say the same about yourself?

        The armband is purely for the jab zealots, you don’t have to wear one if you don’t want to.

        PS…,The clue is in the title… ;-)

          No affiliations, yet a lot of your views just happen to align with extreme right wing groups who’ve been violent at rallies and have called for violence against elected representatives. What an extraordinary coincidence, eh?

            Your tilting at windmills…

            I’m sure I share similar views with you on a whole heap of of issues, doesn’t make me über left or whatever it is you feel you are.

            everything in life isn’t black n’ white and or red.

    easier solution for society, grab a sharpie Neil and draw a penis on your forehead, everybody will steer well clear of you.

    I usually find asking ” do you want to sit on my knee ?” gets people to move,
    even before covid can’t stand fuppers in my personal space

    is there anything to be said for a sharpened 2 metre pole, to poke people out of your way with?
