  1. If we follow that argument I assume you want government to underwrite all travel (and other) insurance that can suffer if government can shut it down. Why not get them to underwrite car insurance because they underfund the police so cars get stolen etc. Insurance companies are very happy to take large premiums when the odds are well in their favour. Swings and roundabouts come to mind.
  2. Why should they? Do insurance companies give governments part of their profits (apart from tax)
  3. Is it not the case that many events won’t go ahead because they cannot get insurance. Not sure how that can be laid at the government‘s door.
  4. I don’t know why they would do that. Why don’t you simply tell us. As for data never lying. Data are simply statistics. Now let me think what’s that well known phrase attributed to Mark Twain
  5. This is recurring theme with you. Always implying there is something obvious but never stating what it is for those of us that are either thick or don’t agree with you. Now either you don’t know or there is nothing to see.
  6. It seems the landlord was well known for being a bit of a character (for want of a better word). Doesn’t fill you with confidence in Starmer’s aides research skills
  7. 2nd microchip inserted. £72fbjkoig 2&*)88;dhjk oops think it needs recalibrating Second jab done done and dusted. That’s better, working fine now

    Death of Prince Phillip announced

    A man who personified service and duty. RIP
  9. Posted by a friend on Facebook and so so apt for this thread ....... 1st April: The only day of the year that people critically evaluate things they find on the internet before accepting them as true!
  10. The long lost Crumpet probably
  11. How many death certificates have a SOLE cause of death? Judging by the ones I’ve seen(limited numbers granted), very few
  12. That was kind of the point I was trying to make
  13. Er no I’m gonna do a DC2 and ask for the link
  14. I do love it when someone who insists on facts and links, posts something he ASSUMES

    Storming Off

    I may be being cynical here, but the furore surrounding this “vigil” has achieved one thing. It’s taken the focus of the media from the Harry and Meghan saga. Seems slightly strange to me that other unfortunate woman have been killed in similar circumstances without all this furore and publicity.
  16. In the context of what was known at the time the Nightingales were a brilliant achievement. Thankfully they were not needed but had they been and had they not been built the government would have been condemned from all angles. If it were only front line staff it would be more affordable and universally welcomed. There are far too many paper pushers in the NHS and most of them vastly overpaid IMHO as an ex NHS employee.
  17. You don’t have to answer the door Alternatively open the door brandishing a spray bottle of sanitizer at nose height and your finger on the trigger
  18. Wander round with a clip board whilst deciding which biscuits to have at their next meeting .....oh hang on Zoom has put paid to the biscuits
  19. That’s because I tend to skip most of the posts from anti vaxxers and Covid deniers. I also scroll past reams of posts that just insult others. If that means I miss some informative posts so be it, other sources are available. Life is too short and I have far better things to do than read the mountain of rubbish this thread becomes at times.
  20. Must have escaped my attention in all the photos and assorted crap that gets posted Thank you for an answer that makes sense. I was under the impression that pregnant women were advised not to have the vaccine.
  21. I’m amazed that none of the usual suspects have picked up on this
  22. Do you want to tell my 93 year old mum in law that? She’s been out more in the last few weeks than I have in a year.
  23. Not the point. The lockdown was principally to protect them (whether you agreed with it or not) and most of the population followed the rules so it is incumbent upon the over 80s to follow the rules now.
  24. Does that apply to forum members who are selective in what they post?
  25. Wouldn’t surprise me if a lot of the Covid victims thought the same until they succumbed to it.
