Recommended Posts

If I get ill and suspect that it's covid I'm not getting tested. Obviously I will avoid people as much is practical the same way I would with any disease but it's time we got on with are lives and learned to live with it as this is about as good as the situation is going to get for a number of years.

I don't suppose that the £240M shortfall in tax revenue has had a teeny-weeny influence on policy?  Perhaps the penny has finally dropped  with the parish council that yes, the economic damage has been brought about by.....................us, the parish council.

Have they not done so once already?

Yes, I have referred to there being just one meeting that we are aware of. 

Wouldn't  you expect that they would consult with them before making significant changes?  They don't  have to accept their view, but why not ask?  

So, who has provided the advice for this quite dramatic change to testing?

I am not saying this move is wrong, just that the EAG has been set up, it has various interests and perspectives to bring, yet is ignored.

£240M is nothing. It's literally just Bank of England liquidity. Easily borrowed and it basically never has to be paid off.

The biggest problems for the British economy, of which IOM is a part, will be Brexit and not Covid related. Not only  labour shortages and the cost of imports but also the way in which exports including services have been hit.

Oh, you’re fucking ace you …

“Never has to be paid off”

Still a big fat ZERO in hospital / ICU 👍

This latest outbreak only started at the end of June; and then only in the young. It will take a few more days before we see hospitalisations.

This always was the problem with using hospitalisations as a gauge. By the time the hospital gets over run (which I hope it never will) it's far too late to put restrictions in place.

Are you using the following correlation before issuing your latest death threats:

Number of Manx residents who’ve already been infected (unknown)

Number of Manx residents already infected (known)

Number of Manx residents double vaxed 

Number of Manx residents single vaxed

Number of Manx residents Under 18 and at no risk whatsoever …..

When, in your learned opinion, will the bodies start to stack up?
