    Yes, it's weird how some people were saying a while ago that many of the public appeared to be suffering Stockholm Syndrome as they were scared of their captors.

    Now it's in complete reverse! The government say "run free" and the public do with gay abandon and little thought for the consequences for them or others.
    There's a post over on the Colin Powell thread from a poster who suffers from the same cancer CP did I believe. To read that and see people not even make simple adjustments to their lives is saddening.
    Frosties are just Cornflakes for people who can't face reality.

      Here in Japan we haven't had anything like the serious lockdowns that people in the UK have endured, and yet so many of you over there complain about wearing masks. It's mental
      I've had the misfortune of having to spend several of the last few days in and out of hospital. Apart from reinforcing my enormous admiration for anyone that works in that environment, it also highlighted that they all go about their work wearing masks {not just over the mouth, chin or ear either) 100% of the time. But a significant proportion of our population can't be bothered to wear them for a short while when in a shop or on public transport. I find it shameful

      Good Morning Britain lead story this morning that we need to urgently speed up booster jabs in order to save Christmas. It's so frustrating that we didn't have to find ourselves in this position, when the media are again questioning if we need another lockdown.

      Matthew Taylor chief of the NHS confederation scathing of the governments lack of action compared to our European friends and neighbours.

      “The government ought to not just announce that we’re moving to plan B, but it should be plan B plus. We should do what’s in plan B in terms of masks … working from home, but also we should try to achieve the kind of national mobilisation that we achieved in the first and second waves, where the public went out of their way to support and help the health service.”
      Hands, face, space and fresh air....lets take this next step together safely

      I'm absolutely gagging for my booster but the 6 months qualification delay means I have to wait until November.

      Bring it on next month.

      The graphics other than cases shown by Jenny Harries in the big picture didn’t seem alarming at all. Low plateauing by contrast to mountainous numbers in Waves 1 and 2. 4m have had booster doses already, 3.8m was yesterday’s total.

      Calm before the storm?

      If he is accused of crimes aganst humanity, it's nothing to do with death rates. It's to do with them not liking him and not liking the way he didn't do what everyone else did.

      The country with the worst record is Peru, 6,148 deaths per million, more than twice as many as Brazil. But their leader will, I dare say, get a pass because he ordered the earliest, strictest, and longest lockdown in South America. It killed more people, but was the "right" option.

      Johnson followed SAGE's advice more or less down the line, and had a not much better record than the lunatic Bolsonaro who didn't believe the disease existed. Which suggests, first and foremost, that (unless you got everything bang on right before the disease even got here), human interaction of any sort made relatively little difference.

      Why would a Brazilian enquiry into the Brazilian government response to the Covid pandemic in Brazil criticise the Peruvian President?

      As for 'human interaction of any sort made relatively little difference', I really think after 20 months of this if you haven't appreciated that the overwhelming majority of cases are caused by human interaction then I genuinely despair.
