Does it really matter what background you have in order to express an opinion? I’m tired of listening to doom-mongers like you forecasting Armageddon and supporting submitting the public to further social experiments. As that’s all they are - social experiments. None of the foretold doom and gloom has actually happened. Whether you wear a mask or not. So frankly don’t lecture to me like you’re Chris Whitty.

I haven't forecast Armageddon or any other apocalypse so that's your own construct. I've said it will settle to a steady state in time and it will. Avoiding the issue now with simple things like masks and air filters means it will take longer. Whether 6ou are fed up or not doesn't alter it. 

Of course it matters whether someone has those backgrounds. Not all opinions are equal. I don't for a minute think I'm as bright as Chris Whitty. So again if you feel lectured to then just as you like to say "move on". 

So whether you are fed up or not, people will spoil your peaceful ignoring of the facts, by sometimes pointing them out. Live with it and move on. With respect.

Thanks for the advice. Just checking do you have some scientific or medical background or just someone who doesn't know about what they are discussing? With respect. 

You sound like an absolute bellend, so don't be patronising hard working people on here who are just expressing an opinion and want to move on with their lives. With respect.

It very much does. There is no public appetite for further restrictions or lockdowns and Government knows that. They won’t happen as the public has had enough and the economy can’t take another hit either and if the vaccination process hasn’t worked then we’re all screwed anyway. They’re now pushing booster vaccine jabs. If three jabs for the vulnerable don’t make them safe then most sane sensible people will work out that it’s all a waste of time and just crack on. Another UK lockdown simply will not happen. If the NHS can’t cope without locking people up inside their own homes again then basically the NHS is the problem.

You're not going to get the mitigations, restrictions and lockdowns that you crave as there is no appetite for it.

I know you think of yourself of some kind of pseudo-intellectual with intimate knowledge of virology and pandemics but you don't. You're just a frustrated doom monger who finds comfort in espousing your views online as most people in the real world would give them short thrift.

A guy in our office questioned a couple of MHK's on the lockdown rumour. He was told emphatically that there will be no more lockdowns, we have to learn live with this. 

This is the Isle of Man. Every office has a guy like the above.

MHKs with that sudden total knowledge brain implant as soon as they swear the oath, eh.

We don't know what the future holds and certainly not what a couple of MHKs say, emphatically or otherwise.

If you don't like opinions move on. However people who think mitigations have a part to play are as entitled to express their opinions as you. Live with it

Oh dear the level of discussion is name calling. Mitigations work and speed things up. Lockdowns should not happen or need to but just pretending it's gone away does not make it so.

So you're going to scream and scream till you make yourself sick trying to pretend it's not real because it's inconvenient. You may choose to ignore it but it may not choose to ignore you or yours

You seem to be the one doing the screaming to be honest. I have offered a rational view which you clearly disagree with. As I have said the UK government knows there is zero appetite for further lockdowns and they won’t be able to enforce them anyway. They are also now over two trillion in debt following a pandemic response which has wrecked parts of the economy. If you think the public will go back to standing in their gardens clapping like goons for a government and a system that has badly let them down again you are sorely misguided I’m afraid.

Never underestimate the ease with which the public can be manipulated.

Clapping was a pointless activity that those in the NHS neither asked for or wanted. It was an attempt by government to suggest we are all in it together & build community resilience. It wasn't for the benefit of the people being clapped it was for the benefit of the clappers and government. So no worry if that never happend again. 

We all want this to go away and disappear back to a story for medical journals. Each wave will dig it all up again. As someone else said its like a bouncing ball. Eventually it will stop but it will stop quicker if you damp it down. That's all that is being said

You always forget to write 'in my opinion' when you state things like this as fact.

Our Hermes delivery individual is actually very good. They told us last week that Hermes had told the drivers they were reducing their pay. Our individual said it would make the job no longer viable, which is a great pity.

my driver said he hadn't been paid in a few weeks.
