  1. That's what it looks like, although I suspect that folk who resent attempts at intimidation will dig their heels in further.
  2. Pretty much, that was my summary of an hour long propaganda fest.
  3. Morocco bans UK flights due to Covid cases rising - BBC News
  4. Basically, over an hour of prime time television was devoted to saying little more than..... "If you know any of the 5 million who have not yet reported for vaccination, phone them up and tell them they're letting the side down and if Christmas has to be cancelled it will be their fault." Targets to be painted on the backs of all Typhoid Marys everywhere.
  5. Except that, as members of the EU, they enjoy greater freedom of travel than we do.
  6. Covid briefing..... Javid sounded like the voiceover from an old "protect and survive" video. The Three Musketeers were all conspicuous by their absence, I wonder why?
  7. “Why of course the people don't want war. Why should some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece? Naturally the common people don't want war: neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But after all it is the leaders of a country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy or fascist dictatorship, or a parliament or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peace makers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.” Hermann Göring
  8. Don't do that there has to be something we're still allowed to die of.
  9. Not sure about "crash the housing market", but I expected Cameron to honour his manifesto. Conservative-Party-Manifesto-2010.pdf (general-election-2010.co.uk)
  10. It's all about propaganda. Covid is being used as a cover for Brexit failure.
  11. Question, what is the carbon footprint of the current jabs?
  12. I think I just heard, on Sky News, that only 10% of children's vaccinations are being taken up.
  13. Government Old Etonian noddy (Kwarteng) on Sky News this morning saying "No more lockdowns".... I think I'll take that with a pinch of salt. My guess is that they're trying to scare any booster hesitant into getting their jabs now, before the next wave hits in earnest, that they are at risk and there will be no lockdown to protect them.
  14. Whilst I am opposed to any form of coercion or compulsion, I think that it is right to offer free Covid vaccinations to anyone who wants one, or two, or three, or........
  15. The BBC have just repeated the piece but "anti vaccine" has been replaced by "anti lockdown".
  16. I thought the French were made of sterner stuff. 60% were against being vaccinated but they mostly caved in rather than be inconvenienced. I hope that Macron gets his comeuppance in next year's presidential elections.
  17. If vaccination were to be made a legal requirement, ultimately the only way it could be enforced would be by strapping people to gurneys and forcibly injecting them. I think that would backfire spectacularly and hasten the demise of any government that was idiotic enough to mandate it.
  18. Right you are then, feel free to protest against the existence of Covid vaccines.
  19. Er....that is effectively what I said in the part of my post that you edited out of the quote? You obviously got the wrong end of the stick. Here it is again, perhaps you should read it rather than edit out the main context and go flying off in the wrong direction.
  20. BBC just showed footage of Gove being accosted by "anti vaccine" protesters, or so the BBC reported. I can't see why anyone would be protesting against the vaccines but it makes their protest seem totally unreasonable. I suspect they may be anti lockdown or anti vaccine passport or anti vaccine coercion, but anti vaccine? I doubt it, as until it becomes illegal to refuse vaccination it's a matter of choice so no protest necessary.
  21. Sky in full panic mode too, not enough coming forward for their jabs. I wish they'd make up their minds.
  22. I haven't had any of those, they weren't around when I was a kid, we went to measles and mumps parties and got natural immunity. I did have a tetanus shot once but have never bothered with boosters. Polio and smallpox vaccinations are good for life, I think.
  23. Actually, it could be a blessing in disguise, the last straw that breaks the camel's back and brings about the end of this authoritarian nightmare of a government.
  24. That won't help if posters are required, by law, to present ID before being allowed to post on forums and social media.
