OK. For what it's worth I'm going to try and explain why genomics is important in a ssRNA virus epidemic. No doubt it will end up being recited badly at a briefing, but, well, whatever. You read it he

I think you'll find most so called anti-government rhetoric is focused on government-stupidity and government-selfishness. In recent times - under Brown, Bell and now Quayle - all too many govern

Well then they can isolate until they get there Jab.  I have a job to do that I won’t get paid for if I isolate I have kids that go to school.    Me and my wife will be at the back of the queue for vaccinations because we are mid 30 we need to be able to get on...

 

politicians need to stop thinking about the old people that vote for them and actually start thinking about those that actually pay the taxes and do the work

You're exhibiting some very closed thinking there. I'm 'old' and I launched a new business this week. I'm also classed as 'vulnerable' and I haven't had my first vaccination dose yet. I'd rather like to stay working too if you don't mind. I've got money tied up in stock that was about to go to shops yesterday and I'd get paid for - it's all sitting here waiting to go, with no idea of when it will.

It's not always black and white and it's not just about you.

Sorry about my out bursts I’m just so annoyed and fed up of all this now 

Join the club. 
 

MR the Nations Propaganda Mouthpiece this morning commenting the police had a busy night attending to people having parties!

No shit Sherlock, and with with rather willy woolly non legal advice, does anyone seriously think that parties wouldn’t occur? 
 

Like you mentioned before Nomadic, if you don’t work, you have no money. I’m sure a lot of businesses closed, losing money, and their staff not being paid - another HRH The Chief Minister, Ashie and COMIN masterpiece. At least they can afford lockdowns.

The list of low risk locations identified resulting from yesterday's cases goes back ten days, right into the middle of the time that other locations such as carrefour gym, and even the Java coffee and noodles venue were cited.

Whilst concerning that a couple people could have been roaming the streets with Covid, the timeline certainly supports a link to last weeks cases and venues.

I wouldn't be surprised to hear later today that these new cases have been linked to the existing cluster.

The people begging for lockdown probably dont have to worry about the issues you've listed. Yet anyone raising those issues is called selfish. Go figure. 

I don’t think anyone really wants a lockdown. It doesn’t really help anyone but Granny Smith’s home bakes by delivery and various takeaways. 

The vocal ones are usually fearful, and need clear direction to put their minds at ease  

We want a calm, measured response to the risk. That’s likely to be masks and social distancing if risk exists  

We are currently waiting on results of testing and contact tracing to validate whether even that is needed. In the meantime, we’ve been asked to be careful. This is to minimise any further spread until the breadth of any infection is known.

Lockdowns are very blunt instruments and should only be used as a last resort.

It's not just about any individual, or any specific group.

To date the whole this has been about the old and the vulnerable (wonder how many who are vulnerable term themselves as such when applying for life insurance?)

It's time to think of the majority.  That is those who will not become ill or suffer from contracting the virus.  The most vulnerable are vaccinated, anyone else who wants to shield is welcome to do so but the rest of us have lives to live.

And what exactly, as an old, vulnerable (categorised) person would you like me to do to help you?

Just stay home permanently, living on income support of £98 a week and never push myself back out into the world of earning again? Not use my brain, my skills, my enthusiasm to live to my highest potential?

Or would you just like me to kill myself?  Would that help?

Because, make no mistake, this is the way this narrative is heading.

This is not about old people being concentrated on or young people, or key workers, or school children, or medical staff, or transport staff - this is about an inadequate government attempting to handle a global pandemic when they can't even handle their own integrity, but it's easier for them to set us all against one another rather than look at where the real issue lies. Don't fall for it.  Don't let it happen.

I'm sorry it's tough for you.  I really am.  I have a son the same age, and it's been hell for him too. I can feel your pain and your exasperation and I empathise, but truly, be careful of this growing route of anguish that old people are to blame for all of this.  They are not.

I've lost track of the inoculation policy, are we sticking to the two jab time scale or are we getting on with it ?

 

 

Neither.  We are just being very manx about it.

Intrigued by the use of popup hubs recently like Peel yesterday.

How does that tie in with the reasons given for spending so much and taking so long to get Chester Street open?

The reason why the pop up took place wont answer your question 

 

The cost of Chester st us unrelated to anything else
