It's like our 'scientists' just can't possibly believe what is coming out of South Africa. As if their science (real world data, not shan models) isn't good enough. It's verging on imperial snobbery.

Then you look at our vaccine/booster coverage, considerable prior infection, and *comfortably declining* hospital admissions, and this bed shitting simply defies belief.

 

posting shite from guys who work at the spectator says everything about you and your point of view.

Isn't the understanding that they only break isolation to to work?

Not from instruction I’ve been given personally - we also need to eat and buy things and can’t arrange deliveries to our homes when we’re working - but quite honestly work and shopping is about all I do anyway!

Mate, surely you didn't just offer that up as a retort to my point. :lol: 

That's modelling, not real world data. There are literally dozens of reports that say it COULD be the worst variant.

My point is that there's nothing that says it IS the worst. All actual real world data published so far has agreed that in actuality, the variant is less severe.

Fucking hell. How is that hard to grasp?

Interesting thread.

I'm getting from that that modellers are asked only to produce bad scenarios, ignoring good outcomes no matter how likely they are.

Then these models are showcased as "the science"

That's wild.

Interesting thread.

I came on to post this. It's worth reading. To me this reads that SAGE do not model a "good case" scenario under any circumstances because that shows a situation where ministers don't need to make decisions/restrictions wouldn't be needed. Incredible if I'm interpreting that correctly.

That exchange below this tweet is exceptionally telling.

Especially this part and the lack of reply:

One of the issues is that people will scoff because we’re “agreeing with Fraser Nelson” rather than arguing against the very important salient point being made here.

This is insane. They only produce ‘bad scenario’ models where action would be needed, and ignore anything where we can continue on as normal/remove all restrictions as no decision would be needed regardless of how likely that actually is. Then the bad models are portrayed as the likely scenarios by the government/media.

It says everything about how much of a gormless clown you are that you go for this mewling angle. Their figures are *quite literally* lifted from the data coming from South Africa.

The Spectator have absolutely humiliated SAGE by showing the 'actual' hospital data below even the 'best case scenario' since the summer reopening. This isn't something that can be tampered with by political motivation. It is simple fact.

So we can safely ignore their utter gubbins 'scenarios that aren't predictions'. Great stuff!

Another salient point. 

Governments worldwide are introducing further restrictions of various degrees in response to the new variant. 

Do they all use the same modelling ?

We should be seeing an upsurge in hospital cases by now with this new killer variant, why is this not happening?

With what I’ve just read, we’ll be seeing an upsurge in riots around the Rotterdam and Amsterdam areas.
