  1. 1. Database developer referencing 2020 2. Youtube for the far right that have been kicked off Youtube 3. Danish newspaper known as a sensationalist media outlet, pretty much The Sun 4. Lord Sumption, well known retired high court judge with some insane views, such that some lives are more valuable than others 5. see 2. 6. Data that is two years old 7. At last something credible, though "...frequent Covid-19 booster shots could adversely affect the immune response" is fairly meaningless, as in I frequently worry that I could drop a pound coin on Victoria Pier trying to pay for the car parking and trip and fall into the sound chasing after it. Anyway, they do go on later on to state that leaving "...more time between booster programs and tie them to the onset of the cold season in each hemisphere" would work well. No more waves of hyperlinks please, specially old, far right populist hyperbole or not fact checked. If you have a point, make it, debate it, provide a relevant source. In the mean time, what restrictions that have been put in place have helped many lives to be saved, and only the actions of a minority of red faced covidiots that refuse to work together for the well-being of society have been bar to that.

  2. Ah, debate by hyperlink. Nothing quite like it.

    I think you're confusing facts and opinions here. Let's say Alex Jones or David Icke states that they believe that the Royal Family are shape-shifting lizards. They may well be telling the truth in that this is their actual opinion. But since there is no evidence that the Royal Family are shape-shifting lizards, or that shape-shifting lizards even exist, it can be demonstrated that their opinion is factually incorrect.

  4. I still remember the good old days when it was 5G masts that were spreading Covid; the days when we didn't - and still don't - have any 5G masts. At least we're starting to see more becoming known about certain aspects of Covid beginning to be better understood and, more importantly, acknowledged. It's all way over my head (and I read Facebook!) but the effects of the virus when it gets anywhere near the brain look to be providing some backup to Long Covid sufferers and the "loss" of smell and taste appears to have genetic roots which are now being examined. More importantly, it being openly discussed (by the boffins at least) and not swept under the carpet.

    The thing is though, when it comes to pandemics, the opinion of an epidemiologist who's studied the subject for years isn't equivalent to the opinion of someone who's found out from Facebook that Bill Gates is putting 5G-enabled microchips in the COVID-19 vaccine in order to cover up that the Moon landings were faked.

    Er......How about don't be a hypocrite, and apply your first sentence to the remainder of your paragraph. That, and some advice, you probably won't take, but whatever. Addressing people with made up and meaningless, but implied derogatory names, just because their OPINION differs from your own, isn't usually condusive to establishing a mutually respectful and productive debate. Just sayin......

  7. hyperlinks that shoot down Arfski's comment in flames... Their imagined idea on the weight of opinion is just that ,imagined. https://gbdeclaration.org/view-signatures/ Tens of thousands of medical professionals did not advocate lockdown. Lockdown was a failure... The government spent / lost over 2 x as much money paying healthy working age people not to go to work than they spent on the NHS in the same period....

    Well, there's always one. The weight of opinion suggests that his opinion is wrong, as there is nothing scientific in that outpouring, it's all rhetoric. I've been avoiding Covid like the plague and will continue to do so.

  9. They seem to come out of the garage complex on the Black Gaet from time to time. That site is so well landscaped to stop passers by seeing into it you can't tell if there are a lot of vehicles there. The business's address is Wormadale but they don't keep any vehicles there.

  10. Thanks George. Whenever I have looked at the website in the past it always says whether it is open at that moment in time, but not what the hours are!

  12. Just pointing out that when it's suggested we put a customs border down the Irish Sea, and introduce a pile of red tape, you're all "woo-hoo! What's the worst that could happen?", but when it's proposed that the Co-op build a shop in Sandwick, you seem to think that's a bit too risky.

    Covid 19 / Coronavirus

    I don't think either of those options were seriously considered for very long by anyone with an understanding of how the virus was spreading (I assume you know that but are writing for dramatic effect). Since very early on the aim of the game was to slow the spread i.e. the 'flatten the curve' principal whilst vaccines were developed and/or herd immunity achieved. Surely there's enough evidence of health services around the world being overwhelmed for people to understand that aiming for herd immunity through the unchecked spread of the virus would have been catastrophic. It feels quite odd to be even writing such an obvious comment.
