  1. Its almost as if the cost of food and gold are in some way connected to the amount of money sloshing about.
  2. People with BOMAD funded deposits get nice discounts, but less social housing for the actual poor?
  3. To misquote the mad queen: "Burn it. Burn it all."
  4. I think it all makes more sense if one assumes that everything Cummings does is to harm the UK. Domestically, it looks like Johnson and Hancock have got away with it, but this will hurt our standing in the world.
  5. WTF? https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/may/28/ufo-whistleblower-pentagon-complaint “Once a fringe talking point, unexplained objects in the sky are evolving far beyond science fiction to be viewed as real phenomena that could pose a national security threat. “I want us to take it seriously and have a process to take it seriously,” Senator Marco Rubio told 60 Minutes.”
  6. All I know is that on June 5th, Trump was on a state visit to the UK and Xi Jinping was on a state visit to Russia. I doubt they discussed anything important.
  7. 38,378,564 people have been vaccinated in the UK so far. You claim that of those, 1,180 have died as a result. That is a fatality rate of 0.003%.
  8. I doubt anyone cares. Anyway, most people already know what you are.
  9. Shouting does not make it true. I was talking to you, you were talking to me. You got upset when I pointed out that what you presented as a 6000% difference was actually a 100% difference. Oh, and it was Gigantic Purple Slug that you originally replied to, who had replied to Bruce Banner. You got involved, then I got involved. That's how forums work - it's not a private conversation.
  10. Liar. If anybody wants to see if you are or are not a liar, all they need to do is click on the back arrow at the top right hand corner of each quote box. That reveals that "the comment you are replying to" is part of an exchange between you and I that goes back for at least five posts. You sir, are a shifty fibber. You are a liar.
  11. I agree. So why did they say something completely different?
  12. Sorry, I let myself get side-tracked. The reason that I logged back on is the disgraceful news reporting of Cumming's "allegations". Every single person that I know in real life remembers that the initial plan was to let Covid rip and go for herd immunity. But the BBC says that a "Senior Minister" has "rejected a claim" (by Cummings) that the "original government plan was to allow most of the population to develop Herd Immunity to the virus". The Senior Minister is not identified, but later in the report it is clear that it is the Home Secretory. Video clip of Priti Patel: "Absolutely not" Liar.
  13. You don't have to go for a vaccine to be tracked by your phone.
  14. That is encouraging. But: Sorry, but that makes no sense at all. To quote: "It’s ONLY 60% at 21 days post-second dose follow-up." No. That is wrong. The (controversial) 60% protection relates to the first dose. "At the 11-12 week follow up, one would expect it to be closer to 80-90% range." What? The second dose happens at 11-12 weeks. It does not have an instant effect.
  15. Thanks, but I don't understand those tables. Is there no easily accessible headline figure for this measure?
  16. I did start this on the off topic board, but got no replies. Please can someone tell me what level UK GDP is at in GBP using the expenditure methodology? I'm being a bit thick.
  17. I have wondered if (with enough beds and oxygen), this is what the Indian variant is. Or if they think it is.
  18. Yes - all true. I suppose my point is that the vaccine may not be enough on its own.
  19. It has been said that the new variant may be 50% more infectious, with an Ro of 6. If the 1st jab gives protection of 60%, you'd need 100% take up to get the R down to 1. Of course, this is complicated by the second jab, existing immunity (from infection) and the fact that this is not quite how R works. Has anybody done the maths?
  20. Is the implication that this is the current plan to deal with the Indian variant?
  21. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/may/21/signs-of-rise-in-covid-infections-in-england-amid-variant-warnings "speaking at an online meeting of the Independent Sage group of experts, Prof Ravi Gupta of the University of Cambridge, a co-opted member of the New and Emerging Respiratory Virus Threats Advisory Group, said that despite the UK’s vaccination programme, community spread of the India variant, B.1.617.2, will continue to rise. “We still have people under the age of 30 not vaccinated, we have many people with only one dose, so this virus has plenty of space to expand exponentially and reach very high levels of infection with quite high levels of morbidity overall,” he said." Hmmmm.
  22. In areas that do not have outbreaks of the Indian variant, cases seem to be around 10 per 100,000. in places that do have the variant, they are much much higher - 1200 per 100,000 in parts of Bolton. The variant seems to have a doubling time of 7 or so days and is spreading geographically. But nobody seems to care. Is there something we don’t know? Perhaps that the variant is less deadly?
  23. What a load of shit. If you want to compare AZ vaccine deaths with Flu vaccine deaths, and want to show that AZ is more dangerous, then do it on a month to month or year to year basis. For the record, I think you may be right, but that argument has no weight whatsoever if you don't compare like with like, or show your workings in full.
