  1. A friend of mine in India just sent me this. The Hindu: ICMR stops use of ivermectin, HCQ for COVID-19 treatment Science. It's so much more difficult than just making stuff up.
  2. The mortgage works is the marginal BTL lender at the moment. If they stop lending then that’s significant. https://www.themortgageworks.co.uk/
  3. Good news: Covid-19 critical care bed occupancy falling. Bad news: Still about 20% of base critical capacity taken up with Covid-19 patients. This would be a significant load to carry going into winter if it doesn’t fall further. My hospital is very busy at the moment. This is a consequence of maintaining infection prevention measures for patients who are high risk despite vaccination and trying to clear backlogs of less-urgent but still important cases.
  4. I’m too busy for your made up science bullsh*t at the moment, but there are dozens of common cold viruses.
  5. And simply wrong, as other vaccination programmes show.
  6. More detail on how restructuring might go here. https://www.forbes.com/sites/annestevenson-yang/2021/09/13/what-would-a-restructuring-of-evergrande-look-like/
  7. Yes, of course. A humanitarian organisation's reputation for independence and neutrality, and being non-combatants of course, is often most of the protection they have. I've encountered British military officers who see humanitarian organisations as somewhere between an irrelevance and a nuisance, and those who understand that "the people are the prize" and how humanitarian organisations can help to win it. What do you think of 52 Brigade's tour in 2007/08?
  8. I've done humanitarian stuff in fragile and conflict affected places, but I don't think you see anyone's experience but your own. Did you ever do the Medical Humanitarian and Stabilisation Operations course at DMS Whittington? One of the reasons it's open to non-military people is to help military and non-military people understand what others know.
  9. Without wanting to be personal, the “if you haven’t been blooded you don’t know anything” mentality in the Army is one of the themes of his book. It fed into the “In Northern Ireland we…” problem. If you want read something by someone else who was there then the site of the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan is good. https://www.sigar.mil/
  10. The Guardian: There will be a UK Afghanistan inquiry – just don’t expect any accountability This is a good read. The author's book Losing Small Wars is very good too.
  11. No. The question was what does the vaccine prevent, not about risks vs benefits.
  12. Shall we look at the Health Ministers' (not just Javid's) letter? It's worth a read. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/letter-from-uk-health-ministers-to-uk-cmos-on-covid-19-vaccination-of-12-to-15-year-olds/letter-from-uk-health-ministers-to-uk-cmos-on-covid-19-vaccination-of-12-to-15-year-olds-3-september-2021 Where does it say that we should vaccinate children to protect adults?
  13. I think it's The Times quoting an 'unnamed source'. It's called preventative medicine.
  14. So which government minister said that we should vaccinate children to protect adults? I'm sure that statement would have been reported on the news.
  15. And who is arguing that we should vaccinate children to protect adults? Be specific.
  16. If it makes you feel any better, all the antivaxxers I know in real life are growing increasingly desperate that people aren’t believing their lies. Unfortunately for them they’re too thick to know what to do.
  17. Parents can consent for their children and competent children can consent. If parent and child disagree then there needs to be a decision about what is in the child’s best interests.
  18. There is no chopping and changing the law on consent and the principles behind it. It is entirely consistent.
  19. All you have is nonsense. It's why you're losing.
  20. More interesting stuff from Richard North this week: Afghanistan: the blame game Afghanistan: the roots of failure Afghanistan: Divergence of refugees Media: invisible history Defence: lessons forgotten
