Did anyone view that police incident video I posted earlier? OTT even if she was a difficult character.
I watched it now, just to make sure it was the clip I'd seen before. Nice language and behaviour in front of her own children.

Then there's the obligatory, I know my rights quote. "I'm a woman of this land"

Aye, scum, selfish and her children are probably doomed watching THAT as an example of how to behave.

Cept it is a moral issue, or at the very least a social issue (for me the terms are synonymous), when people who can't work from home, can't afford to self isolate because they're either low paid or working in a job with no sick pay, live in a deprived area or in overcrowded accommodation and don't have a private garden they suffer worse than those who can and do - yet again the refrain of "we're all in it together" rings hollow - but hey let's blame the most vulnerable members of our society. 

You say you're wealthy but what use is your wealth gonna be when the new all singing & dancing version of the Rona comes a-knocking at your door?

The problem with mis-classifying it as a moral issue is that whilst it plays well to the gallery of numbnuts on this forum and others, it leads to terrible decisions.

It's a health issue. Pure and simple.

As for wealth, it won't protect me at all and I have never claimed it would. Your rant about overcrowding is amusing as ever but no idea what your point is. I'm not hugely interested in a another pointless discussion about wealth inequality and eating the rich TBF.

Just watching the daily dose of 10pm depression. As crap as the situation is, the huge daily numbers now are the fallback from the christmas hell, nothing else. The warnings were the beforehand. To let 3 households mix xmas day and let's face it, 2 or maybe all 3 wouldn't have stayed together all day but mixed with others as the day went on...............

Like playing Russian roulette with a killer disease, fantastic.

 

As unpopular as is was at time, now my own parents who are in their 70s are glad we stopped them coming xmas day and had to zoom the kids and us instead, too much of a risk. 

People just need to be a bit sensible that's all

Indeed, the "get out" clause is "oh we were told we COULD do it"...................................lemmings.

New variant 

Are you scared yet ? :lol:

Erm, no.

Not to be too brutal but I keep getting furloughed cos I had some serious kidney issues years ago, i don't hide away indoors I get out but don't put myself in stupid situations and if anyone gets too close when I'm out then they get reminded in no uncertain terms.

I'd suggest you don't try to get any sense from him.

That boat has long sailed.

As I described a “difficult character” however the polis response was aggressive. It’s difficult to tell the background to the incident from the footage, but I’m not sure I’d be “compliant” to an intrusion. Subsequently  I’ve read up on the Act and the polis didn’t break any laws. 
 

Just in case the polis plan to visit my hoose I keep a baseball bat for recreational purposes only. 😂 

You know ,so do I even have a couple of old tennis balls in the dogs toy box😁

As an ex ice hockey player, the hockey stick is a memento.

Slashing, 2 minute penalty. Pfft.

Spearing/Butt Ending, It carries an automatic major penalty and game misconduct. Now we're talking.

Yeah, I've seen how this could be used in a trained persons hands.

The quote clearly says "in part" there is no spin here. 
In other news, a further 1,325 people in the UK have died within 28 days of a positive covid test, a new daily record that brings us to 79,833 deaths by this measure on the 8th of January.
Will you finally act like a decent human being, admit you were wrong and apologise for the language you used towards me when I made my over 80,000 by end of second week of January prediction? 


Credit where credits due. I thought your prediction was way off the mark.......... but here we are.

Getting murkier and murkier....................... @pod, you might, or might not, have seen this. 

Major probe into covid-hit care home

Braemount Care Home - where almost two thirds of all residents contracted Covid-19 - has been made the subject of a Large Scale Investigation (LSI) .

https://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/local-news/major-probe-covid-hit-care-23276795?fbclid=IwAR0jMEiF7LMKuz5U-8xA42yF2wMrCizu9rTT86s8q388zyOLivJGWPXf1fw

Renfrewshire HSCP have been on touch.

Nothing in the Care Inspectorate report is a surprise to me.

Let things take their natural course.

wish I was wrong but fair play in putting your hand up on it, very respectable 👍

I ask only for an apology for the language used by faraway saint who called me a number of derogatory names for simply giving my view.

So far it isn’t forthcoming.

I don't particularly want to refight any of the old battles but do we have an exit strategy?

Will the current schedule of vaccinations (an area where I think the UK is doing well), the current lockdown and better weather arriving in a few months when do we ease restrictions and if we haven't stamped the virus out by the summer do we just accept we have to live with the disease - I'd say we'll have to.

My honest view is, god knows.

There are plenty of countries who, looking at the numbers, are on top of this but it's not gone away, as far as I know.

I agree, we'll have to live with it, hoping the vaccine puts it into a very low risk category.

It's entirely possible, looking at the past history of viral behaviour, that the tendency for mutated variants of Covid to appear, could lead to the efficacy of any vaccines being reduced or rendered completely ineffective.

The vaccines seem to be based on inducing our immune system to produce antibodies specific to a viral spike protein. Any variant that has significantly mutated viral spike proteins, may well eventually be able to completely circumvent any of the current vaccines. 

You'd then be looking at the possibility of a cycle of yearly "Covid jabs", based on the likely variants at large in the population at the time. Much like our current "Flu jab" cycle.

Even if our current virus does "go away", looking at the way coronaviruses in general have proliferated in previous years, then there will be another one along at some point.

You don't "know" what the death total will be at the end of 2020, no one does. You not understanding that's the reason people don't give answers won't change this. 

With a gun to my head I think there will be between 80k - over 100k deaths by the end of the second week in January (went for that given the Christmas and New Year reporting, not sure how it'll work exactly)

So, taking 50,000 being the figure now, well not really but I'll play along, and splitting your number to be 90,000 that equates to just over 500 EVERY day for the next 78 days. 

Jeezo. 😂

Sad news, still waiting for @faraway saint to apologise for some of the name calling aimed at me after this interaction. Given him ample opportunities to be a bigger person and accept he was wrong.

This is pretty classless from you.

I predicted we might be looking at something approaching 100k (which we are reasonably close to) but you won't find me crowing or taking obvious pleasure in that as you are clearly doing. Neither am I looking for praise or recognition.

Faraway is an arsehole but looking for praise and public apologies because you guessed correctly at the number of deaths is pretty low behaviour.

I've got the trumpet on ignore.

I mentioned a week or so ago we were heading towards his 80,000 figure, which no one seen coming.

If he thinks he's super for pulling a random number out of the hat, yippee for him.

If you throw enough darts at at dart board you'll hit a treble 20 sometime. 

As for me being an arsehole, you have shown your a lowlife in the last few months, I'll never be as low as you.
