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

Rachel has tried every which way to re-offer her services. This last tweet wasn't the first time she's reached out. Government has made it very clear they do not want her to be involved. I want h

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

DA mentioned that all adults to get a first dose of the vaccine by the end of May, in line with the UK - unless I misheard this.

The only thing I can find shows the UK's timeline as being all adults offered a first dose of the vaccine by the end of July

Am I missing something?

I am sure the general public with be full of confidence now that the Chief Minister has asked the Chief Secretary to investigate the Steampacket fiasco.

Requires an Independent investigation now  Mr Quayle to recover any public confidence.

Neither am I, and I was merely pointing out one possible obstacle. I do however suggest you boot up your sense of humour if you are to remain sane (ish) on here.

I have a great sense of humour, I have to have one in my line of business. But i see that sort of thing on all manx and island forums and that other well know Book face.

You seem to have anger management issues fella. Take a chill pill. Your brain seems to be making bad connections.

Is this really what happens when you disagree with the covid ‘experts’ on this forum? 

This is one mask we knew would slip:rolleyes:

Maybe one reason why people (jokingly) suggested you were Quayle was that you seem to believe that it's the duty of everyone else to tell you nice things rather than true things.  And that the universe is obliged to organise itself to suit whatever your whims happen to be at the moment.

I don’t want people to tell me nice things to be honest I just find it odd that people what to spin half-truths and uncorroborated information so frequently and blow it all up into ever more elaborate doomsday scenarios. No wonder there is a burgeoning mental health crisis with so many people reading this unrelenting juggernaut of depressing drivel from social media covid “experts. I’m dealing with real life thanks. That’s a fact. Half of you seem to be off into the successive rings of Dante’s Inferno of covid-doom and will only be happy when some pseudo zombie-covid-apocalypse is the only end result.

Kent variant is way more contagious so HQ wasn't kidding when he said brace yourselves. HQ losing it with PM must be feeling the pressure.

I couldn’t bear to listen this time. I ate chocolate instead. Can you précis the PM bit for me?

I don't think they'd bring more restrictions in. Most of the stuff that is allowed is low risk and only helps those who can work alone or safely outside.

Anecdotally, everyone I've seen out and about today has been masked up or seemingly acting sensibly.

Strangely enough the only workmen I saw today who were working close together, but mostly not wearing masks were some DOI staff on the promenade, perhaps they have all had their vaccinations.

Maybe, but listening to the uk budget today it sounds like they are not expecting to be fully out of lockdown until September. 

I'm trying to stay positive and I think furlough will be for the likes of the aviation industry who wont be up and running 100% straight away. Hopefully everything else is up and running before September

Everywhere will be making a massive push to back to normal by summer.

It's the time to do it, the virus backs off over summer anyway. Once everyone is jabbed, it'll just become another normal thing.

We've just got a few more months to get through and we're there. I've always been a proponent of local elimination here until then, as it isn't far off, and if we do it properly once, it's better than thrice badly.

Aviation and travel will take longer, think how many business meetings have been replaced by Zoom now.

He asked if the press could be allowed more than 2 questions, this giving HQ the chance to point out his own previous question was boklocks and that he basically didn't think they could come up with any more decent questions between them

I just found Facebook depressing and so came on here for a change but honestly it’s worse. You’d feel suicidal if you were a normal person reading all constant depressing crying and wailing on here from most posters. 

It is better here, a couple of the members will at some point PM you offering no strings fun.................
