After the sunshine of Covid & those halcyon days of fully paid furlough Summer 2020 Prosecco ‘working from home’ garden parties, the rain will soon start to fall and the pain will truly begin to be felt …….

…. and a generation of half educated kids 

…. and non elective surgery waiting lists reaching 3 years 

….. and, and, and.

The numbers in that are staggering; taxpayers could be liable for an estimated £26 billion of bad loans out of a total £92 billion of loans guaranteed by the government. So it’s cost £100 billion just in underwritten loans on top of the billions spent on furlough.

Staggering is a word that doesn’t do it justice.

There is no word.

I was rather hoping she'd died by now.

Nice. We’re on a roll on here at the minute in wishing death on people. Good to see humanity is still something to be cherished.

Stop it. You’re embarrassing yourself. Go back to bed.

Society is full of nutjobs with different views of all description. This forum has quite a few alone. I don’t want them dead though.

Need more people like yourself really, to many people push the vaccine just because they’ve had it and they think everyone else should. It is a personal choice and with personal choice comes risk, you just have to be happy and content with the decision you’ve made.

The options are :

A) Have vaccine, risk very rare side effects (odds into millions, but a lottery that no-one wants to win) lower the risk of dying or having complications from Covid considerably, remain content with your decision but don’t force your views/opinion on others.

B) No vaccine, no risk of any rare side effects from vaccine, however increased likelihood of complications from Covid, don’t become an anti vax nut job, remain humble with your decision and just hope you’ve made the right choice.

C) Have the vaccine, tell everyone that hasn’t had it they’re selfish and they’re idiots, travel freely, enjoy life and hope that there is no long term health effects.

D) Don’t have the vaccine, call anyone that has had the vaccine a guinea pig/part of a government experiment. Complain the lack of free travel is against your human rights, say that Covid doesn’t exist and that it’s all a con, just hope and pray you don’t end up in hospital with Covid because you’ll make yourself look a right tit.

I haven't had a look but one of the things about most of the Mountain Road is that you can see quite a way ahead. Perhaps people are taking the 'racing line' in places that it's safe to do so? In this heat it wouldn't take long for tyres to be shedding rubber which we wouldn't notice in normal tempertures. 

I use the mountain road everyday and the number of bikes...and cars.... on the wrong side of the road driving/riding at speed recently is ridiculous 2 near misses that were way too close for comfort in the past few days.  A lump of metal coming at you round a corner is not a good look.  And rarely see a cop up there these days - sometimes see one ambling up 8am ish.  Worryingly speed is not restricted to the mountain - way too many cars speeding through the nearby villages too. I know that cops are thin on the ground but maybe a mobile cop on a motorbike would focus attention.

Not surprised at all tbf. Just offering up the idea that it may be happening and "everyone being wiped out with Covid" is actually just some other crappy bug going round. 

It's that time of year.

From personal experience we have a six year-old in the family with sore throat and a cough. Tested negative for CV. 

Know a lady up the road with same symptoms (FWIW- long since double jabbed) also tested negative for CV.
