So we can't go and lick all the door handles on Strand Street from 00.01 tomorrow morning? 

That’s not been illegal. If that’s what floats your boat it’s never been proscribed.

Worth it?

Is it a good question?

We have lives to lead. 

Perhaps it's a silly question and a poor show for a professional. The right question is IMO;

Is it a risk worth taking?

For me yes it is. For some it will not be and they have a choice. 

We have been told by the experts from the start that precautions and restrictions are to stop hospitals being overwhelmed. They are far from that. If that changes then of course we will have to step back. We will never know until we put it to the test.

There’s quite a long thread on Twitter which ends with RG saying she will block the guy challenging her statement as well as telling company not to use him for travel bookings!

She’s the Queen of drama.

Covid has now morphed into the friend of the work shy & those who can make money out of it. Some might argue it’s been like that since the virus was ‘introduced’ …

I genuinely don't think she is thinking this through

The TT is a big event for the Island but in global terms of public sporting/hospitality gatherings its a pin prick of an event.

Consider such things like (for example)

  1. A Grand Prix
  2. A Manchester United European game
  3. A night out in Benidorm

All these have bigger numbers in closer proximity

Why would the TT be treated any different to whats going on in the rest of the world. Of course she could turn out to be right but in all likelihood she'll turn out to be totally wrong, as she has with all her other forecasts of gloom and disaster.

It's simply saying something controversial to stay relevant.

I’m not sure it is that people are Scared, maybe a small majority. But I think it’s more that the hospital wasn’t the best in the first place, but now running on empty. 20 people with covid in hospital is a very small number and it  shouldn’t really make any difference to day to day running of things. It’s probably that in itself making people worry that if they get seriously Sick will they be able to get treatment. I definitely wouldn’t like to be a doctor or nurse now they must be run of their feet and it only takes one small mistake to make a devastating one. It makes me wonder if MHKs are qualified enough for the roles they take on, as it’s peoples lives at stake. Not necessarily people that have covid but more with people needing treatment for other things that itself won’t help them if they were then to get covid. The problem is the ones that made bad decisions in the past will have their nice pensions and know if they need treatment can afford to go private else where. Let’s hope this time with this government they make a difference. But up to now I’m not seeing it. It’s still let’s waste money, activity teams and street parties. Sweeping things under the carpet needs to stop. 

20 people is a small number, but probably a big number to isolate from other patients in, what is, after all, a small hospital. 

There have been mistakes, but we have what we have and, tbh, MC seem to responding in a measured and pragmatic way.  It's all very well saying this or that should have happened, but it didn't and they have to get on with the hand they have been dealt. 

I am not sure they can do much more now.

It's amazing how she has transformed from somebody who made some great and reassuring points in the early part of the pandemic into the Ubergruppenkaren that she is today.

I have moved into believing that shredded letter was real nowadays
