It would be great if people politely wore a mask if they have a cold. Or, better still, stayed at home.

I'd like to find a quality mask that does actually protect the wearer. In normal years I often seem to pick up a cold after a series of connecting flights.

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

Look at the beginning of March, everyone going around as if there was no pandemic, one live case and within a week about 2,000 in self isolation. 

FFS its no big deal, put a mask on, you will probably look better for it too.......................

Hopefully masks will go next week but nothing to stop you or anyone else wearing one if they wish although if you’re going to the pub I can’t see the point.

I suspect him putting these announcements out forces the rest of CoMin's hand. So when it does come to Thursday's CoMin he'll push them down the full opening up route because that's what the Great Manx Public have been promised. 

 

Quite, so what is the point of putting it to Comin, other than a rubber stamp?

Lets look at it from a different angle.

Lets say whenever a male walks past a female the males d1ck, without will from the male, penetrates the passing female.

This would be rather tiresome to say the least and the cause of much strife in the world. Imagine being out for a walk with your wife and 2 teenage daughters and the local men's bowling club walks past?

To stop this happening all males have to do is wear a codpiece and their d1cks no longer penetrate anything without their will.

Do you get it now?

Congratulations, you have now surpassed the eminent Jonathan Van Tam for the strangest Covid related analogy, and it didn't even include a reference to trains.

Because a rubber stamp is needed. It is evidence that it has been approved.

There is an awful lot of complaints here that there is no audit trail for decisions made. So there would appear to be quite a point.

Which bowling club is this? Do they have a waiting list for membership?

Thank you that is appreciated.

Johno, as I call him, will be well miffed when he hears

ETA, What about trains and tunnels, does that count?

ETA(2) I hereby give permission for  JVT to use my analogy the next time he does one of the briefings with my namesake,

He is welcome and any speech writing fees due to me can be donated to a charity of his choice.

As a Covid analogy, or whatever really, your angle is deeply, profoundly deranged.

To teenage women Covid does nothing.

The government has stopped congregating also those who don't care about Covid. I would be fine to have leisure centers restricted to those who don't give a s**t about the virus and have signed a disclaim form in that regard to make sure that they are fully aware about they are doing. I would be in good company at last.

............as evidenced by the face-nappy wearers even in the deepest reaches of the Tesco car park this morning.  I genuinely believe that the indoctrination has been so complete that there are individuals out there who believe that COVID is circulating freely in the open air.

I don't know how much you are into open spaces... it is actually much worse than that. In the Tesco car park one might have forgot to take it off. I see the masked in the Marina Drive down to Port Soderick; they see me coming their way in the dangerous unmasked state of nature; they reflexively adjust their masks as to be reassured that their mouths are fully covered and protected.

I used to swerve to the other side of the road to avoid causing any distress. I don't give a damn anymore about them; it is far too idiotic; the fear is their problem. They have no right to stop we the living from living our sacrosanct lives.
