  1. Why would it not support the vaccination of children? Just because obesity is a seriously high risk factor, it doesn't mean that everybody who is not obese is not also at risk.

    Top riders during each decade

    Even though Hurri-Ken was my team's captain, I really can't agree with that. Towards the end of the period that the "Big Five" were given a 20 yard handicap, it was strongly argued that Nordin had become so good that he too should be put on 20 yards as well. I never heard anyone argue that Ken Mckinlay should have been.

    Correct! Sadly nothing by Del Shannon…..

    So it never happened then? Perhaps the American courts ought to be told - it will save them having to deal with the more than 700 arrests that have been made (so far) arising from the insurrection.

    Is that the mob that tried to overturn the result of a democratic election by force on 6 January?

    University Challenge 2021/22

    Yes, indeed. I was brought up on Music Hall songs as well as 20s & 30s music. I knew all the big names from those days. We used to visit my grandparents every Saturday and we would often have a good old sing-song. My grandad's favourite was our favourite, Gus Elen, so I've known his songs for as long as I can remember. Although, as a teenager, I was naturally immersed in the music of the day, from Del Shannon to The Beatles, I also joined the British Music Hall Society in 1965, when I was 17.

    Well you sound quite young to me. I only know music pre-1975ish!

    University Challenge 2021/22

    Nothing to do with University Challenge or even Only Connect, but a comment on tonight's Pointless. One of the questions was having to name a song, from its initials, that made the charts by two different acts who were named in the question. One was "STB" by Guy Mitchell and Tommy Steele. The contestant said "I don't know that one because I've never heard of Tommy Steele." Whaaaaaaaaaat!!!!!
  9. It is of course a matter for concern that 73 people have died as a result of receiving the vaccine. However, I wonder how many of the over 50,000,000 who have been vaccinated would have died from COVID had they not been vaccinated. Something, of course, we will never know, but I would venture a guess it would be far more than 73.

    Do me a favour! Do you really think I would waste my time watching any of that garbage? If you really think that, you have sadly plummeted to an all-time low in my estimation of you.

    Shocker! Who'd have thought it? What an exclusive. That Farage must be the best investigative journalist since Mark Beales, a journalist on my local paper, broke the news that the local council had set some money aside to fix the potholes in a couple of town centre roads.
  12. I think they only believe what they read on Twitter. It's easier that way, saves having to think for yourself.
  13. Try and catch up, old chap. Mistakes on dealing with COVID, which incidentally, the person you now seem to be defending says doesn't exist, were most definitely made in 2020, erring on the side of not taking the pandemic seriously enough, more in line with your own thinking. But science moves on and people learn by experience. It is now 2021 and things have changed greatly, though, in fact, you haven't actually addressed at all the real point I was making in my post answering Bluey.
  14. And that's what comes of your proud boast that you never watch television news. You should get out of your Twitter bubble more often and find out what scientists and world leaders are actually saying about the new variant, not what your conspiracy friends are tweeting.
