Lording it up over another country with few people vaccinated having high case rates is really weird behaviour, tbh.

Not usually one for the dull wee anecdotes but the Queen of the Lovejoys is on my train up to Aberdeen. Older woman accosted a young lad for not wearing a mask, said she had spares and tried to give him one of the spares, he said no thanks and she said he was a danger to every passenger on the train. She moved seat and grassed him to the conductor.

Wonder how often this is happening. 

I'd say if you've decided to sit in a train to go somewhere, you can't be that bothered about virus transmission given how close people are to each other, in most cases for over the time it takes for the virus to be passed on if you are sitting in someone's company. 

A piddly wee mask isn't going to do anything in that situation. Otherwise office workers would be encouraged to go back into the office with masks on.

I think that actual Sage are giving them a run for their money this week.

1 in 3 dead and a cull of cats and dogs.

You can't even be angry with this stuff anymore. :lol:

The one benefit of the doubt you can give is that SAGE is a huge spectrum of folk, and this was put out only by one tiny, diddy subcommittee. Even one or two of the 'Independent SAGE' psychopaths, like Michie and Reicher, also sit on the real SAGE.

It is pointless output though, which is literally just covering any possible base regardless of the extreme probabilities behind it. If such a thing is possible for Covid, it's possible for all other respiratory viruses that circulate in humans. It needs to be reinforced that there is precisely nothing special about Covid, particularly now in a highly immune population.

Remember as well that there is a chance alien invaders could come and eradicate humanity!

Of course it isn't. But the government have spent 12 months telling people that they are tremendously effective and that if we don't wear them everyone in the room will die.

Most won't be arsed, but some people will have swallowed this whole and been absolutely broken mentally by it. Remember it is primarily because of these people being scared that the SG, Khan and Burnam are wanting to keep them.

I could be wrong but I always assume @Elixir is aiming his laughter at the #ZeroCovid nutjobs rather than anything else. 

 

Yeah, it's a tragedy what is happening in places like Australia, but they've been brainwashed into believing it is the answer. The conductors of this were always going to be exposed in the medium and long-term while pointing the finger at places like the UK, Europe and the US in the short-term. We were always going to have the 'last laugh', as is now becoming evident.

I’m really not sure where you are going with this.
The people we are talking about are being punished by the restriction of their liberty.  What we were talking about was how we educate and rehabilitate them, as some people were complaining about them being referred to as “clients”.
Yeah,I referred to them as clients. A wee bit tongue in cheek, but the whole CJ system is built around rehabilitation, and we do, trite as it may sound, try to make a difference.
There are, imho, very few actual "born bad" residents in the Queen's Hotel chain. You should be looking at the higher levels of society for these - like a Home Secretary whose empathy with others extends to trying to criminalise the RNLI, or a Prime Minister who doesn't mind arranging for people to be beaten.
Some "enlightened" commentators try to place the roots of criminal behaviour in drug use and misuse, and there's some truth in that. Deeper, though, is the root cause these two anti-social behaviours have in common - poverty. It is a fucking disgrace that in a country where our elected representatives can throw billions at a vanity rail line, children are going hungry. That these same representatives actually legislated so that privately rented accommodation did not have to be fit for human habitation. More than a few landlords in that asylum by the Thames..
Anyway,I digress. If we don't believe in rehabilitation, we might as well bring back the death penalty: for burglary, reckless driving, non-payment of fines, robbery, fraud..
I mean, the perpetrators are all criminals and therefore beyond the pale, right?
This little sub-thread has simply confirmed what we all knew about DPB and Oaksoft. They are horrible, sociopathic creatures who deserve all the respect you'd give to anything you picked up on your shoe.

You might like the Joel McHale show on Netflix. There's a whole segment entitled "That Happened".

The fact that what’s proving him right is people getting sick and dying doesn’t get in the way of a good laugh, clearly.

Yeah that's not actually why the death penalty was abolished and remains out of use (that would be the issue of wrongful conviction), but don't let that get in the way of yet another tedious, self-righteous rap lecture.

Birthday Caird pish.

People have gotten sick and died forever.

#ZeroCovid was a disatrously flawed approach and deserves ridicule.

What has that got to do with laughing about it?

I’m not a “lovejoy” by any means but that’s just psychopath behaviour.

Spectacularly missing the point in order to get in a cheap jibe.  virginton - swing and a miss (again).

He didn’t say that was why it was abolished though, did he? He said that if you don’t believe in rehabilitation, you might as well bring it back as there is no other “cure”.

Why should we not laugh at any 'expert' who preached #ZeroCovid?

The end result of such an approach was both inevitable and obvious, yet we had some of the supposedly most intelligent and qualified people advocating and lobbying for it.

Believe it or not, a few bamming up posts on a message board does not mean I endorse mass death.

Steady up.

I seem to recall stating that the purpose of a custodial sentence should be punishment, education and rehabilitation.

I don’t mind being at the opposite end from you politically and, therefore fit for abuse from your self imposed sainthood but, in this case, I think you’re being a little unfair.

Exactly.

The measures the Zero Covid brigade wanted to keep in place unnecessarily would disproportionately impact others, socially, financially and so on.  

Advocating these things is absolute c**t behaviour when you’re doing fine and it’s somebody else’s livelihood at stake. Especially when it came hand in hand with those who questioned Zero Covid as being selfish and uncaring.

Taking delight at such sanctimony coming crashing down around us is fair game, and it says a lot about those who don’t like a light being shone on such behaviour.
