That also includes Devi Sridhar.

Not heard from her in ages. Is she still on the tele or reduced to Twitter only these days?

She'll be back soon enough. She's got a book/speaking tour to punt in the spring.

And hilariously, everything in that book will have proven to be wrong or ineffective by the time she's published it. 🤣

It’s almost a cast-iron guarantee that every single one of the scientists, influencers, politicians who were “frontline COVID” will be milking their fame, once this has all settled down. In fairness to them, they’ll argue they gave their all in these times plus publishers, tv shows etc will be hounding them for their bookings. 
 

You just know that the shark will well and truly have jumped once Leitch, Bauld or Witty are on Dancing in Ice once their weekly columns in the newspapers dry up.

Ah, a flippant and irrelevant remark.

I'm feeling the love in here for lousy employment practices.

You're doing that extrapolating thing again...

Out of interest, as you appear to be of the opinion there is absolutely no place for zero hour contracts, what robust employment contract do you think would be appropriate for the role of vaccine passport checker at Celtic Park?

Hopefully the modern David Seaman equivalent bounces Sridhars chin off the ice, several times.

He'll always be known as the most incompetent PM the country has seen in living memory unless one of the older folks on here wants to tell us about some shitty 1950s PM who couldn't tie his own shoelaces.

England had a pretty good 2021 in terms of COVID.  Just about restriction free for 6 months. There's plenty of Non COVID reasons to criticise Johnson ( including his dreadful Brexit) but England's COVID performance probably stops him from being regarded as a complete failure.

Rather bewildering interview with that GP on BBC Breakfast there.

Basically boiled down to we should be keeping vaccine passports and masks for now because:

-They are easy

-People have gotten used to them

-People just feel safer

I've no specific argument against each point as all are somewhat true (except masks during an entire day's work), but it spectacularly misses the point about why people would like to see them gone, and falls way short of the the argument that should be required to support maintaining emergency measures.

In Italy a child cannot now sit and eat in McDonalds without being vaccinated. This world!

Edit...to embellish, a colleague felt ill, took a rapid antigen test and tested positive. On hearing this news another colleague complained because the now positive person had been sitting in the staff room without a mask and said the room should be deep cleaned. All of this is post vaccination. Governments have a lot to answer for but the inability of some to step back and think about what they are saying utterly astounds me.

Were excess deaths not fairly significant in the early part of the calendar year?

Probably more accurate to say their period since vaccinations were largely delivered has been successful.

You are right to say the early part of the year was disastrous but that’s probably down to failings in late November when delta arrived.

Also heard this and was very frustrating. She did the whole ‘what is normal anyway?’ Thing about masks too. 

It needs challenged.

It misses the point that facial expressions are very important for social interaction therefore masks should never be normalised.
