    Salmond and Sturgeon

    They just have to get the EU to state they will do a good deal and that will clinch it. Think Germany gave the East Germans a 1:1 deal with their Marks which was obviously beneficial for the East Germans

    What has that got to do with anything ? I don't understand the importance. Surely a lot of countries started their own currency when gaining independence ? Croatia did. What about the ex- Soviet countries ?

    European Union - In Or Out?

    Yet again you pop up and make a fool of yourself, attacking the wrong target Germany, Sweden and possibly more weren't convinced because of the total lack of evidence due to lack of testing on the over 65s. There are legal technicalities in some countries. Now it seems they are happy with the results from Scotland and England, so had a re-evaluation. It was always stated they would when more evidence came forth.... https://www.reuters.com/article/health-coronavirus-sweden-cases/update-1-sweden-recommends-astrazeneca-covid-19-vaccine-for-over-65s-health-agency-idUSL5N2L253V On the other hand what you probably should have been attacking or commenting on was the fact a few countries are not happy with the speed the EU are proceeding with the vaccine campaign and are talking of doing their own deals....Austria is one

    Blackford will come to the countries rescue, his Isatis tinctoria coloured face roaring through the Glens
  11. Smartest thing you have said for a while
  12. You obviously don't read properly. Haven't quoted Expressen for age. Aftonbladet is the new source of all the info Yes, in a lot of countries they are opening up again. Unlike Sweden, which is having to bring in more and more stricter measures All depends of the region in Germany. Schleswig- Holstein (which luckily enough is 10 minutes away from my place ) will open all shops from Monday, with a limit according to how big they are......Hamburg is remaining cautious and not too happy with the behaviour of their neighbours in S-H. Zoos opened this week in S-H and of course Hamburg has school holidays, so the S-H zoos were full of peple from Hamburg. Just as they expect the shops will be next week

    Salmond and Sturgeon

    But she has no choice. Until Scotland gain independence they have to take their money from the UK On the other hand Farage didn't have to take money from an institution he despised, but it was the only way he could get into any parliament........
  14. Looks like things are going the wrong way in Italy as well now......the whole country going into a red zone ? https://www.tageszeitung.it/2021/03/03/ganz-italien-bald-rote-zone/
  15. Seems whilst hoping for an end in a week or two, not only Sweden, Czecho are seeing the problems mounting. But it seems the focus has strayed from Brazil....... https://www.nytimes.com/2021/03/03/world/americas/Brazil-covid-variant.html

    'the Donald' Trump

    Yes since 1975 it has been banned......is that when you are now claiming the election was stolen from Trump ?
  17. Seems despite all Blu's attempts to tell us otherwise, the pandemic has hit Sweden hard, not only in the health system, but also economically Now it is the turn of the Swedish Cinema industry to protest The pandemic has hit cinemas all over the Nordic region hard. In Sweden, values for billions have gone up in smoke when most cinemas were closed and a maximum of eight people per salon were allowed. What if it has been completely unnecessary? "We have had over 1.6 million cinema visitors in Finland during the pandemic. The number of infected people who could be traced to a cinema is 0" As a German study of the Dortmund Concert Hall in November 2020, carried out by the Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute in collaboration with the German Federal Environment Agency. It showed that if the audience sits down in a so-called "checkerboard pattern" and there is adequate ventilation, the risk of infection spreading is close to zero inside the concert hall, which Koistinen believes is comparable to a cinema The restrictions vary Cinemas have been more or less open in the Nordic countries during the pandemic, with restrictions of various kinds. For example, domestic "Another Round" was seen by over 700,000 Danes last autumn, but now the Danish cinemas are completely closed. The notion that it is not risky to go to the cinema, if you use smart booking systems and have good ventilation, recur in many places in the industry. This is something that, for example, Peter Fornstam, CEO of Svenska Bio, has repeated as a mantra throughout the pandemic. - Of course we want people to be safe in the cinemas, there should be restrictions until the pandemic has subsided. But we have in practice been banned from working for a year now and if you look at our Nordic neighbors, their spread of infection has been lower but we have had stricter restrictions, so it can hardly be where the shoe squeezes, says Peter Fornstam. What does the Swedish Public Health Agency say then ? In a report from December 2020, they write: "We found no reports of infection in connection with theater or cinema visits, which may be due to introduced restrictions. It can also be affected by the fact that theater and cinema usually involve sitting in a reserved place and little interaction with others. in the audience. " Tegnell: The virus is unpredictable But state epidemiologist Anders Tegnell does not want to agree that it would be completely risk-free to go to the cinema. - No, you have to remember that this virus is very unpredictable. We have seen that some cruise ships were hit very hard by the spread of infection, but most were not affected. Therefore, it becomes very difficult to say it can not happen in cinemas, he says and continues: - The most important thing is that you sit in a fixed place some distance from each other, above all not directed towards each other. In that way, cinemas have an advantage, but it is about the same conditions as in theaters and sports arenas. There is nothing to say that you can vent the virus. Anders Tegnell is aware of the research that has been done in Germany. - But the problem is that you can watch ninety cinemas where the virus does not spread and then still get the spread of infection in the ninety-first cinema.

  19. Corona infection is rampant in Stockholm and the number of covid patients who need hospital care is increasing. Now the Stockholm Region announces that the third wave is here - and that no one is safe. - In the last three weeks, the number of confirmed cases has in principle increased by 100 percent, says Johan Bratt, acting director of health and medical care. After New Year, the number of infected decreased. Now the trend is broken and the infection is increasing significantly in Stockholm . Acting Director of Health Johan Bratt says that it has in principle increased by 100 percent in the last three weeks. - Now we are also starting to see a small increase in the number of patients with covid-19 who are so seriously ill that they are in need of hospital care. The care now ensures that everyone who is in need of acute and necessary care should receive it even if the number of patients with covid-19 increases again, says Johan Bratt. During a press conference on Wednesday, he states that the third wave has reached the capital. - We have a third wave of infection spread here, it is here now, he says. - I take the situation seriously. We do not want to see a situation where it increases sharply. Healthcare workers have been struggling for over a year, they have done a fantastic job. He also warns that even young people can be hit very hard by the virus. - No one is completely safe, and we still do not know exactly who will suffer from a more difficult course of the disease. Spring weather may be behind the spread Recent spring temperatures may be one of the reasons why the infection is increasing. It appears in Stockholm County Administrative Board's latest report.
  20. Of course I hope you are right, but Sweden have the third week in a row a rise of 10% in cases, and according to the tele the WHO have just announced after 6 weeks of falling off a worldwide rise of 7% in cases....
  21. Has it ? Wasn’t December 6.8 degrees. January 2 degrees and Feb 4 degrees. ? And quite a cold snap at the start of Feb....
  22. We had the first weekend of compulsory mask wearing outdoors at certain hot spots.......and a helicopter going round controlling people and a police car racing across a park after youths !!! https%3A%2F%2Fwww.focus.de%2Fregional%2Fhamburg%2Fin-hamburg-polizei-setzt-helikopter-gegen-personen-die-keine-masken-tragen_id_13030455.html%3Ffbclid%3DIwAR1_wZUoR5hfmud2dfPTj-6ViSmOHBBV6KwDVIb9M-iuEYxuijbcTPauPpw&h=AT24vR021_RjiUkikNWZyfYrdK5m0OAlUzq8MKvl_QVZAOuqvM0UwhaEP7226F8RA2J2C2845L0VT-D--S5to5lSQ2O9fE9N95a1mE_Sin0m_0fm7lQtYiEUPBRKCBtSX_g&__tn__=R]-R&c[0]=AT0DLoKdOvVBfnh0jzx3Q_CZapLD6WSXGiu5GlkLFoIL5p9kI-e2WRj3U6PLqgggEZRRwJhaXv-G9FcmM7pxwqvDaKVxlBYWYbcVtXgzYstq_JHQTTcsvY1mN3bKEIJmJUr08ozX4_CQia3ZMZYG0Kimmus5kG_8k2lZFWK_JuxBCho

    Coming from someone who wanted a democratic election overturned because of a few dodgy twitter posts and now gets triggered because some book that is pretty irrelevant to the world at large stops being produced. Irony overdose ?
