  1. It seems that if you don’t buy into the overriding doom message all you do is get bullied and harassed by the doom peddlers anyway.
  2. You seem to be some sort of comedy Internet bully who just posts nonsense here to be honest. It’s hard to see what your problem is with newer posters on this forum. Maybe if you spent less time fantasizing and inventing conspiracies you’d be slightly less aggressive in your forum interactions?
  3. Says poster who has made nearly 12,000 posts in an Internet forum.
  4. But you don’t know. Brazil has a high general population HIV infection rate and a lot of poverty where people will be living in unsanitary conditions in close proximity to others in the same boat. It’s good to spread fear though. I do get it.
  5. Vaccinated or not they’re still in a high risk vulnerable category. Some may have only had one jab as well so far.
  6. They’re up shit creek that’s why with so many families isolating they can’t then have those who aren’t in isolation taken out due to child care issues on top so it seems fine to expose the elderly if they’re happy to accept the risk.
  7. Yes Ashford did suggest that grandparents could be used for childcare for essential workers - so its absolutely fine for 75 year old grandparents to look after your kids but not 30 year old teachers in hubs as it’s too risky!
  8. The OCD like obsession around case numbers should go I agree. There’s people literally arguing with each other on Facebook and claiming government conspiracies and cover ups because they think there’s a gap of 2 or 3 cases due to reporting overlaps. It’s literal insanity to obsess over numbers like that. Number in hospital and number of deaths should be all they say and if people want to know more they can go on the covid world-o-meter where they probably already spend a good 5 hours a day anyway.
  9. Most of the 12 people in hospital won’t even end up in ICU. Very few people end up in ICU.
  10. Mark Lewin was clear that this is the case in the interview they broadcast the other day. He said elimination had served us well but it was time to transition away from this now or something similar.
  11. To be honest Moorhouse and Callister should have a competition as to who can ask the dumbest question put by a constituent. The dog walking one was fantastic at a special Tynwald session to discuss urgent covid matters.
  12. His daughter is standing. No doubt it will be a nice platform for him to use to raise issues that will be part of her manifesto.
  13. I’m sure the validated covid advice you dispense while you’re doing it is invaluable though.
  14. That’s an interesting statement. So in the next 8 weeks what’s your likely source of optimism given this scientific revelation? Finding the cure for covid and managing our exit route out of this through detailed scientific analysis or doing a few ceilings to top up your MERA?
  15. I love that sort of challenge.
  16. Seems like there’s loads of self claimed highly qualified covid experts doesn’t it? I wonder how it will all end?
  17. Is that the recommended extra mix for plastering a ceiling?
  18. I’ve posted nothing about the EU or EU / UK regulation. Literally not one thing. Where is the pencil mark of the label you’re looking at?
  19. Yes you seem to be. Both smug and delusional with it too.
  20. It’s a bit of a pointless statement to post though isn’t it? Everyone is aware of that.
  21. If that’s your view what on earth are we all in lockdown again for?
  22. I know two families coming up to 14 days who have their 13 day tests booked. I think maybe the issue is it’s 13 days from the first assumed infection not 13 days from when they they actually self isolated.
  23. Now it’s the only way to do it. Few people are staying at home anyway. The shops were packed in Douglas today with people just carrying on and taking precautions. A lot of construction and the trades still working on outside or empty house jobs etc. There’s a lot of activity going on. We can’t afford the bill for what’s probably going to be six weeks of shut down anyway. I really didn’t get all those dickheads being filmed in the pub at midnight last time round not masked and not distanced. The risks of catch something were exactly the same at 11:30 as they were at 12:30 yet within an hour eve
  24. To be honest that’s not necessarily a bad thing. We’ve just got to get used to living with this which is what Jersey (largely by accident) has done. The problem is that a lot of people bought into the fact that they had created some impenetrable fortress here and that was always a very unlikely scenario longer term. The number of people this time who now seem to be saying they’re financially or mentally wiped out by this is a lot higher than in January. We just can’t do this ‘stop - start’ bollocks forever we need to get used to wearing masks and having screens and sanitizing and socially dist
  25. These sort of things are happening as you say it’s probably down to demographics at the GP level. Amazed at those who jump in like you’re being critical for pointing these situations out. But the fact is the UK is ripping through it all at great speed so we need to be better planning for freer borders well before September as most of the UK will be done earlier and if the IOM steps up most of the IOM will be too. There’s a summer season to be had there from June to July which Jersey certainly seems to be planning for to open up and receive guests in what is likely to be the biggest UK tourism
