    Ironic that you're accusing me of denying it's more infectious when the whole point I was making is not enough is known yet. Time will tell if it actually is any worse, with or without sage super analysts. I'm biased in the fact that nearly everyone vulnerable is vaccinated so if in 2 weeks time hospitalisations/deaths haven't gone up then it's clearly nowt to worry about. 

    Tell that to folks with long COVID, or suffer from life changing respiratory illness's and need permanent nursing.

    That's utter speculation and yet to be confirmed. Viruses will always mutate, and they will routinely become less deadly. A virus that kills its host isn't gonna spread very far. Who even cares if it's more infectious, the real question is if it's deadlier. 2 weeks time should tell us, and I think the flappers will be very surprised

    But the non experts, like you and DC2 and a couple of others, have already deemed it not to be more infectious and no have no evidence to work on, unlike Sage and its scientists. Perhaps you should share your knowledge, but on the other hand you don't have any do you.  Rather a biased and argumentative stand to take.

    Because they have no choice, ask them if they wanted to do the tests

    no one knows if testing saves lives, it does however give the government  a reason to frighten the population by saying this many people have tested positive

    Same as we now have with the Indian variant, i have heard so much on the TV today about how many people have tested positive, no mention of how many have been hospitalised and no mention of how many have died

    so now it doesn't matter how many people are dying, just how many might have caught it by testing positive

    Short memory you have. Boris and the Government were heavily criticised for late and under testing in the first instance and compared to both Germany and South Korea, who had more existing testing stations and equipment that us and the rest of Europe.

    It's early days for the Indian variant but its already deemed to be moire infections and will be the dominant variant in the UK taking over from our Kent Variant. Taking it serious early will solve the situation quicker, something that you and the other critics were saying about the governments response in the early days last year. BTW 4 have died already and it's affecting  people younger than before.

    I really don't want to comment on your last muse. :D

    An Independent Sage expert now being given free rein on BBC News and totally unchallenged has got away with 

    “there have been millions and millions of deaths in India”

    The official figure is 262,350.

    Ignoring the statements made  that the declared figure is seriously under stated due to non reporting.  ;)

    How many more times you muppet. There is NO test for Covid-19.

    Funny that travellers are being told to have COVID tests before and after  leaving this country and paying for a choice of 2 tests. Testing for COVID has been with us for over a year in all countries and usually held as responsible for saving lives by "testing' early. There are two 'muppets' on here and  BluPanther is the other one.  :P

    Flights from India have been arriving in the UK everyday. There are at least three today, with journalists, Government officials and numerous work occupations all being exempt from any isolation. What a joke that is...


    There are no articles anywhere that mention 20 diners testing positive for the Vindaflu. Sounds like BS to me...

    Perhaps if you had used your ears to listen to the broadcast you wouldn't be looking for BS.

    Imagine living in a time when billions of people actually believed that wearing a piece of cloth over their face would protect them from inhaling a virus which is orders of magnitude smaller than the pores in the cloth.

    We are now ruled by unelected scientists, computer modellers & behavioural psychologists...

    Still better than those unskilled and with low level of knowledge on here that think they know better.

    I think you need to get some new batteries for your hearing aid, how can there be diners when restaurants are not even open...:rolleyes:

    I can hear perfectly well with no hearing aids thanks, and I'm not deaf to listen to important news, which you and your lot tend not to listen to.

    Do you know if they dined inside the establishment?,,, and I tend not to watch the news as, someone advised me that the coronavirus saga isn't there if you turn the telly off. :t:

    Was it on Look North, or the other one?

    Both.The restaurant was behind the reporter and showed there was a large canopy and tables underneath so it could have been both.

    Are you saying there was 20 diners in the restaurant and, when did this take place,,, was it a trial run?

    There was 20 people who have all caught COVID after dining at the Indian Restaurant. They are now looking for everyone who have recently dined there as it's reported it has been crambed of late. The news of this outbreak was on all the local news  2 nights ago, perhaps it was one night you were never off here. :o:D

    Will folk be sitting in the boozers on Monday? ;)

    I don't know, but I do know you're probably aware that there has been an Indian variant identified in an Indian Restaurant  on Front Street, Tynemouth. 20 Diners have all tested positive to COVID and now they are looking for earlier diners  probably from the 3 weeks before this outbreak., Imagine how many people have been in touch with the 20 in addition to the previous diners. It is reported that there is no Indian travel involved so someone out there must be a carrier. Given the hilarity on here, and ignorance of what's happening right in front of us, aren't you glad that the county and COVID are being run by sensible committed people, instead of the usual critics on here treating the pandemic as an opportunity to self elevate themselves and dismissive of anything that doesn't fit in with their agenda. Reality has no place on this thread.

    How old was the hairy bikers programme.  There are a lot of repeats on these days because of problems making programmes under restrictions.

    India has these variants which seem capable of breaking through known vaccines.  UK is watching the situation and I read tonight the government is preparred to introduce local restrictions if necessary.  SO everyone still needs to take care or all suffer the consequences.

    Well said, as it's certainly not over yet, despite others on here insisting these new variants are just drummed up frighteners associated with control of the public by the government.

    Well that's democracy, and he got a bigger percentage of votes in his election than the Tories running the UK into the ground did in the last General Election, or indeed even in the recent elections... :rolleyes:

    Once again slagging the Tories on something and everything, which devalues your opinion. Not a word from you about Labour blocking the results of the Boundaries Commission, whereby the voting support of the new political area would be evened up, but the results  are more favourable to the Tories. Like Turkey's voting for Xmas, despite it being a not political restructure in the interests of fairness..

    Actually I say fair play to him on that score. 

    How ironic though, that a Tory should be advocating public ownership of public infrastructure. The Tory Party is more left wing than Labour these days..:D

    Ironic or not, sometimes things have to be done in accordance with the current conditions. Like finding money for epidemics after 10 years of austerity when trying to balance the books and reduce the deficit. It just has to be done regardless of your usual political principles. It might be ironic to you, but it's just reality to the rest of us. Similarly with developments like Teeside Airport  when there wasn't money for the failing airport, but the entrepreneur Mayor Ben Houchen got behind big business and used his principles to explain and convince them that the airport could and was a big YES for the development of their area. Labour would have just pumped money into it even if they hadn't any.
