Eh?

Just because I don't join in the pack mentality by blaming him for EVERYTHING when wee Nicky has more control than you, and others, care to remember.

Lighten up, we're ALL entitled to an opinion. 

Who said Boris was responsible for everything? It seems that, in your eyes, some people are not entitled to express an opinion.

Well that was a month, with over 30,000 dead (Govt. approved total) from Covid and we're still getting new case numbers at the level that took us into the Lockdown2 in November. Still there does seem to be a bit of light at the end of the tunnel with suggestions that the vaccine is starting to have an effect on the number of new cases. The mood music is that schools won't be opened to the children of non-essential workers before Easter (although them crazy Welsh folks are hoping for mid-February!) and that there'll be no foreign travel at all this year (not even for our brave social influencers) as other countries are behind us in the vaccination process.

Aye, the death numbers, well, absolutely astounding.

While, as you know, have had doubts about certain restrictions I do believe there's been mistakes made here by not making it a full lockdown.

I'm still of the opinion people's disregard has contributed massively but a complete lockdown would have curbed that.

I don't believe there will be no foreign travel this year, time will tell if I've called this right.

Typical of you you selfish ass. I'm not sure if you even read the article.

She wasn't trying to give a solution. She was expressing an opinion. And a very true definition of the clown who has done so much damage to the UK.

Lovely.

An over-emotional numpty getting over-emotional about a post criticising an over-emotional article.

It has a beautiful symmetry about it.

Terrible news, here’s hoping for a positive outcome for him. 

Indeed. This could leave a massive funding gap for the NHS. Getting old people to walk round their garden to raise funds was always a flawed strategy, but i suppose for Boris it was a better option than taxing rich people.

Well here's some good news, it's not like Nicola to go early on lifting restrictions although our level of new cases is currently half of what it is in England...

Quote

Scotland's youngest pupils are likely to return to the classroom full time from 22 February as schools start a phased reopening.

The move will include all pupils in P1-P3 as well as pre-school children.

There will also be a part-time return, but on a very limited basis, for senior secondary pupils to allow them to complete work for national qualifications.

A final decision will be taken on the partial reopening in a fortnight.

All of the country's other lockdown restrictions will remain in place until at least the end of the month, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said.

I still maintain that all Welsh folk are crazy...:wacko:

Good to see the vaccination efforts ramp-up in Scotland. The proof will come if the approach to prioritise the two highest risk cohorts has been the better one but from some quick calculations, it looks like Scotland is above England in daily vaccinations this week so far, hopefully still see all of the UK improve even more. 

Percentages of the adult population (based on the percentage stats from Scotland as I couldn't find England for some reason) vaccinated comparisons this week

Monday

Scotland - 0.7%

England - 0.58%

Tuesday 

Scotland - 0.81%

England - 0.62%

I saw this on the bbc website and was wondering if the difference in size of population in 1891 (4 million) and the population in 2020 (5.6 million) would effect this stat? Wouldn’t it be more realistic to count deaths per thousand of the population?

It wouldn't affect the "excess deaths" stat as that is just a number but, yes, it is more meaningful to use per head of population.

Hong Kong flu came and went in 69/70 without a lockdown and with far greater mortality.

Lockdown is killing millions.Their death, the middle class left’s virtue

Utter. Insanity.

A Tory government pulling (but mostly not in a timely fashion) ALL the levers of government and yet you persist in blaming some mythical “left” as being prime influencer!

Fruitloop with a bananas topping!  :lol:
