Boris plastering the vaccine as the Oxford/British vaccine. Trying to get international clout. Didn't work as other companies made superior vaccines.

Your personal anti Boris Johnson political fetishes are of no interest in what is a local forum and they clearly have completely blinded you to the sole key fact. You clearly do not understand  - or refuse to acknowledge - that the Oxford / Astra Zeneca vaccine has been and remains today by far the most widespread vaccine in use - in over 170 countries. And also of course The World Health Organization has recommended the Oxford/AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine for use worldwide.

Maybe  best if you would keep your positions on UK politics and politicians for a politics forum. And not suppress or distort demonstrable facts as that does you no credit at all.

The vaccine has worked for me thus far. Can’t see how you could get more superior than that.

You're funny. I like that.

WTF has that got to with this thread topic which, lest you have failed to understand, is ''IOM Covid removing restrictions''

Its in response to Pongos post of nearly an hour ago about who the Tory Party stands/ stood for which also does not follow the brief.

You’re relatively new here aren’t you?

Responses to topics often take unexpected turns and twists but are no less entertaining or thought provoking for that.

Hope you can get into the swing of things before too long

In the spirit of blatantly tangential and excessively verbose posting, I would like to express the view that there entirely far too few emoji options to do this thread justice.

(e.g. "face-palm", "embarassed smirk", etc.)

Tell you something, IF omicron turns out bad then the UK are in for a storm. I’m there now - in Birmingham city centre it’s busy, about 50% masks in shops, nothing in bars and restaurants, and I’m right now at a gig with a thousand others - no masks in sight. A cursory check of covid pass or negative LFT on the way in. That’s all. 

enjoy.

To be honest I am not a fan of emojis ( although I admit to having employed them myself on occasion) 

If you have something to say, say it, not rely on a yellow faced cartoon type character to do it for you whose meaning can be misunderstood.

I have always thought they were the preserve of teenagers to try and suggest they are more clever than they actually are . 🤪

I think they suggest how lazy I actually am. I view them as non-commital abbreviations. (winking emoji goes...>>>here: x)

Oh dear. Hopefully you're not adopting a certain posters ethic and not bothering to wear one because no one else is...

Yes you’re quite right. They are for lazy people who can’t be bothered to explain themselves.

If someone makes a post why not just say:-

I agree with you

I don’t agree with you

I don’t understand what you are saying

And say why?

A possible exception is the laughing emoji which is less open to interpretation ( “I find what you say is funny”) but even so you could use words to give the author a compliment as to why you find their post humorous.

Racist!!!!!!

Rather than using the laughing emoji, as advised elsewhere, I am saying I found your post humourous because you implied the previous poster was racist when in fact he wasn't. By exagerating his reference to skin colour of those emojis based on the iconic "happy face", you made an absurd assertion and absurdity is the basis of much humour. Didn't want to be presumed to be lazy (or efficient) by just clicking on the laughing emoji. Keep 'em coming boi...oh! that sounds like "boy"...Racist!!!
