Best of luck Ketchup. Make sure that you pull over at the first sign on anything untoward.

Re: Covid Vaccine issues

Yes advised work not not to book anything critical for thursday/friday. So far only side effect is very slight dead arm like a small child has punched me in the deltoid. However was warned that feeling cold or fluey for 48-72 hours is not unexpected and that if I experience any covid like symptoms i...

Re: Covid Vaccine issues

A few weeks ago I walked my dog past a local church. I saw a queue of people waiting outside and rolled my eyes at their folly, using religious exemption to excuse a mass gathering during a pandemic. What fools. This morning I arranged my covid jab and discovered the the queue I'd despaired of previ...

Re: Electoral reform?

Yup - I'm feeling increasingly disenfranchised. Neither of the two major parties are a fit for me. Probably the Lib Dems are the nearest but what's the point of voting for them? I suppose Labour might become so - have to wait to see what Starmer can do. I do try to work on the principal that a vote...

Re: Covid Vaccine issues

yes indeed. I did read about that and the the small industry it spawned in religious exemption certificates. One of the reasons I doubt that vaccine passports would be guaranteed to have the intended effect.

Re: Covid Vaccine issues

Seeing a lot including today on GMB about 'vaccine passports' - people saying how they would 'infringe the rights' of those who choose not to be vaccinated. I don't get it. How about my right to carry something that proves that I've been vaccinated? You could have that right, but it would be meanin...

Re: Brexit deal and onwards

Ben Habib makes a very good point. I've often wondered why it is that British people only ever eat fish when in a restaurant. Why is it that we never cook fish at home or order it as a takeaway. Indeed I'm sure that if anybody offered takeaway fish as fast food, (perhaps deep fried with chips) then ...

Re: Covid Vaccine issues

Sounds like a good idea. As a old(ish) scientific leaning white guy, I follow a bunch of old(ish) scientific leaning white guys on twitter. Brian Cox highlighted a Royal Society event on You Tube which I just watched. I have absolutely no problem feeling represented on this panel. RoyalSocietyEvent....

Re: Covid Vaccine issues

It's never been likely that vaccines wouldn't confer herd immunity. Only unproven. With the latest research I've seen from Israel we're starting to see strong indication that the vaccine does reduce transmission as well as infection. https://theweek.com/speedreads/962001/israeli-study-suggests-pfize...

Re: COVID - Double Masking

I guess I can count my blessings that I only wear glasses for reading and only wear masks when out of the house. So far the intersection of reading when out of the house has been limited to shopping activities such as checking how many grams of carbs there are in a protein bar. The answer, as I'm su...

Surprised to see that the talking head on that video was a professor of civil and environmental engineering. Not sure of the relevance of that qualification. The next video suggested was this one titled Dr. Fauci: Double Masking Against Mutant Coronavirus ‘Just Makes Common Sense’ 9nbKjgS0nPA Whilst...

COVID - Double Masking

Seen once in the wild last night and twice seen it recommended this morning on Twitter. Wearing two face masks. The one in Sainsbury's had a cloth mask on first and a surgical mask over it. Chap on twitter was suggesting a putting a medical mask on first and covering it with a mask that would seal t...
