    'the Donald' Trump

    Say's the person living under Sharia law, but trying to warn everyone else Covid is all about taking control The person who can't debate, just run away

    'the Donald' Trump

    And then this...... Since May 2021, people living in counties that voted heavily for Trump in 2020 have been nearly three times as likely to die from COVID as those in counties that went for Biden.

  8. Isn’t that out of date ? https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.orlandoweekly.com/Blogs/archives/2021/12/06/federal-appeals-court-denies-florida-injunction-against-healthcare-worker-vaccine-mandate%3fmedia=AMP%2bHTML
  9. I am on neither side in this. As I said my sister was hospitalized with Covid and weeks later is still recovering But , in one of the articles I read/ posted I think, they said about 200 symptoms could be because of Long Covid. Which is pretty all encompassing to me
  10. But obviously doesn’t bother you moving to a place under Sharia law. An autocracy . Maybe because you get special treatment unlike the rest . But I thought that is what you want people to protest about, isn’t it ?
  11. Yes. Pretty much. Donating to research into health etc I also saw one Billionaire go off into space i think with another as passenger. Now how many could that of helped instead of squandering it on a self interest project, so he could get a perspective on life, as he said ?
  12. Well it doesn't seem to worry you, as you moved to UAE, and i mention Within the UAE, Dubai has considerable autonomy, and is under Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum's autocratic rule. The UAE is an authoritarian state. The UAE has been described as a "tribal autocracy" where the seven constituent monarchies are led by tribal rulers in an autocratic fashion. It also issued Port State Control last year ,under the guise of safety and environment Industry sources have indicated that port state control (PSC) is now being physically implemented within the ports of the UAE. Inspections are already under way and reports of non-compliance are being submitted to interested parties. This unilateral step within the Gulf is being welcomed by the local maritime industry as a brave move by the UAE, which will set a clear example to all other administrations within the area, who have been slow to even plan the implementation of port state control despite discussions last February on a memorandum of understanding on PSC between several Gulf states. Capt. Mohammed Alaa Farag, marine affairs consultant to the Ministry of Communications, confirmed that the initial process is underway, but would necessarily take several months to complete. https://shipip.com/uae-begins-enforcing-port-state-controls/ and to add.... UAE is under Sharia law, but that doesn't mean you are completely banned from drinking in the country. ... The UAE legal system is largely determined by Sharia law, and Sharia law prohibits alcohol. https://www.expatica.com/ae/living/gov-law-admin/drugs-and-alcohol-in-the-united-arab-emirates-70991/

    Being called a 'bad name'

    This is one of the funny, or sad stories that happen now and again. About a sculpture outside of a zoo It is of a man climbing the neck of a Giraffe Now the man looks black, and that to some is racist. The artist say's it is bronze and that is how the colour has changed over the 20 years since it was erected But i also saw a Muhammed Ali interview with Parky the other day, when Ali was talking about every day racism in society and got on to the topic of Tarzan....the king of the jungle, and it was a white man. He beat up the local tribes and amazingly seeing as they had been there for thousands of years, Tarzan could talk to the animals, but the locals couldn't !!! Anyway, if we follow Ali's examples/advice, then surely it would have been racist to have a white man climbing an African animals neck ? As it is a proper racist story recently came up in relation to the same zoo. It included the grandfather of world cup winner Christian Karembeu, who along with others were put on display at the zoo in the early 1930s https://www.mopo.de/hamburg/zoff-um-hagenbeck-skulptur-rassismus-kunstwerk-mann-mit-giraffe-soll-weg-36988154/ https://www.spiegel.de/geschichte/fussballer-christian-karembeu-tierpark-hagenbeck-soll-voelkerschau-aufarbeiten-a-8c958343-3e02-453e-862e-9a63a854b80c

    November was the same in Lithuania and Estonia as well.....
  15. As i said this was coming and won't be stopped. It is all smoke and mirrors to try and use 'control your whereabouts' or 'Control your finances' or 5G masts etc as the end game with which Covid has been invented to push through. Just like they invented Covid to get vaccine mandates, when many countries including the one Crumpet chose to work in already have them and it would be as easy in most other countries to introduce the same....MMR etc in children and you have the population
  16. You are obviously another one who doesn't follow the news or new introductions...... New technology means customers need only ensure they enter a shop with the right phone app. Cameras and sensors can identify goods they take from shelves, with the bill settled electronically. No physical checkout is needed and the customer can “just walk out”. https://inews.co.uk/news/consumer/checkout-free-supermarkets-amazon-aldi-tesco-replace-human-cashiers-shoppers-object-1240358 and it has been coming fr a few years, https://www.cnbc.com/video/2018/01/22/amazon-automated-grocery-store-finally-launches.html
  17. Bill Gates and he said it will all be over soon. So ? For the umpteenth time https://www.economist.com/international/2020/08/18/the-covid-19-pandemic-will-be-over-by-the-end-of-2021-says-bill-gates
  18. That is coming anyway.....you now have supermarkets where you have to use a card to get in i think. Certianly i was surprised the last time i was in London the amount of places you had to pay by card instead of using cash. I was also surprised earlier on the bus to see an ad for a childrens climbing park which said 'no cash' on the ad......i think here next year there will be no more paper tickets for the trains etc. This has been coming for a while and they didn't need Covid. In fact one of the more advanced countries is Sweden and they supposedly have less Covid restrictions And all of that without the old answer of, they can track you with your phone for years now...... There is even an ad on one of the local radio stations telling potential customers to use their digital service, so you can reach the people you want, whether it be people who live in a certain area or bicycle riders etc.....now i don't knw how they can reach bicycle riding radio listeners instead or car drivers, but they seem to think they can....
  19. Ok and so tthose without one will just be allowed to carry on as usual i guess ? That is your tactic ? I mean i guess yu aren't that botered, seeing as you moved from a fairly liberal western country to the middle east. Well known for ooman rights
  20. The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences' expert group estimates that between 50,000 and 100,000 people have probably been affected by long-term covid in Sweden, reports Vetenskapsradion . Jan Nilsson, member of the expert group and professor of cardiovascular research at Lund University, thinks that care has failed to take care of those who have received long-term covid. - Yes, this has not worked well at all. The health service was very late in picking up these problems, he tells the radio. That would be about 30% of the population by DC2's reckoning

  22. They have control of everything. They didn’t need all of this. Look out of your window, as they say Wakey, wakey Plus, i am not sure why they want to control the tobacco supply then ban smoking in pubs, unless you mean they want the country to be healthier ? Bill Gates wants the world to be healthier, so he can cut the population ? Is that the plan ?
  23. Plus I guess that is exactly what happens when you have a vaccine pass. The unvaccinated are forced to get tested more to take part in certain things. As I mentioned it was less than two weeks since it was controlled at the workplace, so all unvaccinated workers have to get tested more. And now we seem to have plateaued out for the past few days. But they are saying that could be because certain areas are up to capacity and can’t keep up with all those who want a test
