I’m not sure how you can read that into what I wrote but I *think* the last time we interacted was when you were asserting  South Africa was a majority white country. Apologies if that wasn’t you, you very much all sound the same in here. 
 

I’ve no idea what the CDC said about any tests but I can tell you the tests I’ve taken in the US and the NHS test I took on a visit back to Scotland last October were similar enough that I’m not sure of any difference between them.

This.

There's a lot of shit comparisons with colds and flu - for the clinically vulnerable that still isn't the case.

Targeted testing has a role in the short run - in any case it's probably more cost effective than having the clinically vulnerable admitted to hospital.

So why are deaths *absolutely nowhere near* what they were in April 2020 or January 2021, and why are deaths now *below* the five-year pre-pandemic average for the fifth consecutive week?

Prevention is cheaper than cure. It's also the decent thing to do.

If people want to test at their own expense then they should do so.

I'm not sure who you are trying to convince with your last sentence but anyone thinking they are doing "the decent thing" by testing or masking up is seriously deluding themselves.

Test or don't test. Mask up or don't mask up.

Both are perfectly reasonable approaches.

No idea why there's this cloying need for sanctimony at every opportunity though.

It's utterly baffling.

I see the crowdfunding site for the Freedom Convoy in Canada has been hacked with 92,000 names and personal details leaked online. The level of nastiness against the protest is now up to this level. Predictably this is now the battle ground between the Middle class Liberal Left and the Educated Alt Right with the truckers and their supporters in the middle and their message being drowned out, so no surprise where the nastiness has come from.

The Canadian Government invoking the Emergency Act (still to be approved) is nothing but desperate. Never throughout this whole protest was there any thought of actually engaging in any discussion with the organisers and truckers which might (surely not) end up being productive. Trudeau is still preferring to keep the 'peasants' at arms length. So much for democracy.

It's as I've always said, there is fundamentally no difference between the left and right wing.

Both sides want to control everyone else and have hatred at the root of everything they do.

They just have different types of people that they hate but hatred is a common driver to both.

And whilst demonstrating that hatred on a daily basis both will attempt to delude themselves and everyone else that they care about people as though they think we can't see straight through their fakery.

I could never trust a hardcore version of either wing TBH.

What is this pish?  Show me your workings on how the SG preventions were the most cost effective way of managing Covid-19.  Please ensure that you include lost economic output, increased government expenditure and reduced taxation in you undoubtedly detailed explanation of how prevention was cheaper.

If the above is too much effort then just explain to me how insisting on testing school aged children was cheaper than just letting them catch Covid and being off school for a few days.  That should be easier for you to explain.

The liberal left are annoying enough that they can't allow people to learn, think for themselves and use common sense when faced with decisions but equally annoying especially in this case is the right (USA) trying to position themselves to speak for the truckers instead of letting the truckers speak for themselves. Working class people don't have anyone on their side in either government or media for the right reasons.

Both sides are a problem, both sides get in the way and are a distraction both clambering for attention and any opportunity to bash each other like it was the most important thing ever in the world. People are now so divided and the opportunity for genuine discourse is quickly shut down, it's so toxic. This was why the truckers freedom convoy was/is so important it was ordinary people getting together uniting and standing up for their rights and the establishment don't like that.

Sturgeon is obviously able to announce via Twitter during parliamentary recess that the weans can be jagged against the glorified cold they shake off in a day anyway, but obviously telling us when the remaining pointless theatre will be canned like every other country in Northern Europe is a bridge too far.

C**t.

That's just plain wrong.

 

Took my kid 3 days when she had it last week. 😉

If we hadn't been in covid times, she would have been at school with her mildly sore throat. (OK she'd have been off 48 hours because she threw up)

For goodness sake!!

Surely you can see the point he’s making?

You've basically confirmed what he said.
