An interesting publication from the psychology dept at the University of Sydney...

Quote

A new University of Sydney study assessed people’s behaviours and attitudes towards pandemic regulations in Australia, the UK, the US, and Canada. It found that roughly 10 percent of people were noncompliant.

Those individuals were mostly male, less agreeable (cooperative, considerate), less intellectual as a personality trait (less willing to try new experiences), and more extroverted.

Published in high-ranking journal PLOS ONE, the study also found that these people tended to prioritise freedom and their own self-interest. They also perceived their social culture as tolerant to variation in values and behavior, with greater tolerance for deviance. Contrary to the stereotype, most of them were not young.

They also tended to engage less with official sources, such as government announcements and news and engaged more in unhealthy coping strategies such as denial and substance abuse.

The real world rate we are experiencing now is running a little over the number I would expect from 1.23% at this stage from the SEIR Model. Though I phrased model in terms of unvaccinated*, which as we know is only thing which counts regarding getting to Herd Immunity, I was anticipating some seepage to vaccinated. My warnings to high-risk 2+2 to take mitigations has been repeated even incessantly for several weeks now. I assume in IoM based on UK data 'because COVID' admissions are 75% of the total 'with COVID' cohort (i.e. 25% COVID admissions are for other reasons). Think you guys in circumstances are doing a great job, newspaper presented a controversy (fair enough their call) but I see difference in view as move of a part of healthy discussions. 

[* I smudged public model because I choose to not be in a position were I ended up talking about mortality risk.]

Here is the latest version of the banner, enjoy:

That's an awfully long winded way of saying your model is (as expected) wrong.

It’s not policy, it’s just because there’s nothing on the shelves..

There is an island crisp shortage developing and it needs more media coverage.

Never thought I would live in a world where the crisp shelves were empty.

Would rather deal with Brexit and COVID again than live a life without Walkers.

It’s going to be a tough Sunday in front of the F1 with no Cheese and Oniony Crispy delights.

Crisps are like toilet rolls, it doesn't take many items to fill up a shelf or many to be bought to empty one.  So they're always the first to be empty even in normal times.

And of course you will have to deal with Brexit and Covid again - they don't go away no matter how hard you shut your eyes.  It's just that now you'll have to do so in the absence of potato-based smacks.  Which absence itself is caused by Brexit and Covid and the incompetence of the UK Government is dealing with them.
