    Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

    Yes Erna Solberg panicked , shut schools out of fear and against the advice of her own public health experts (Stoltenberg) but quickly apologised for her error….

    No, antibiotics would have dealt with Yersinia. You May recall the “ public health “ measures at the time of confining the healthy with those affected increased the death count many times, looks like we have not learned much from meddling “ to keep everyone safe”

    Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

    Yes I am aware of the VAERS, and that system is better than ours. It is a better way of flagging up potential problems with a new drug , of course many reports may be spurious , but at least they are considered. Our yellow card system is a pain in the butt...the crAp asked of a reporting doc is enough to put you off completing it unless you have a few hours. Under reporting in the UK is likely. i saw a woman in he r 40s the other week with angio-oedema within hours of a pfizer jab, so I tried reporting it, like a good little boy. However the process is so lengthy and constipated I eventually gave up.

    The CDC have been a bit more open via their VAERS monitoring than our MHRA, yellow card system (although they have revised the vaccine related "deaths " up and down in recent days ) as vaccine related adverse events with these products exceed everything else put together many times. i see even the Aussie prime minister making daft comments about acceptable vaccination problems. As we have discussed many time s here , novel vaccinations are justified in the vulnerable, and only that group, not blanket roll out. Comments about jabbing the young to protect the elderly are nonsensical, the jabs dont do that. (We don`t jab boys with HPV vaccine to protect the girls from cervical cancer either) "at first do no harm" says the hippocratic oath, by jabbing the young we can`t justify that

    Politics...... The government , drunk on power started with lockdown, masks, trap and trace , vaccinating the vulnerable and now can`t resist rolling the dice on jabbing the young such is their authority on a cowed frightened populace . Of course bully boy tactics , coercion and dictat have helped too.

    Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

    I would call it confirmation bias ....you display the same features. Its impossible to avoid, you might prefer German sources , the guardian and UK govt......I prefer the CDC/ VAERS , cebm and the opinion of Kulldorf and Giesecke. So we will never agree or alter each others opinion, and that`s fine. Its called difference of opinion and useful in a liberal democracy to shape opinion and challenge all that is legislated. It`s a tragedy that the politicians have deliberately muzzled any dissent on this topic. There`s lies , damned lies and statistics...you and I just like different sets of numbers !!

    Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

    Global hysteria me thinks. i am not anti vaxx , like Crumpet they make absolute sense when faced with a killer disease, for those at risk, but only if safety can be assured and the "cure" is much better than the disease " . I do not believe that applies here for anyone below 60 without co-morbidities. The social terrorism and propaganda about Covid itself has spread to the vaccine. Initial trail data suggests it can reduce severity of illness for those at risk, but the absolute benefits are small. Reductions in transmissability and contracting the virus are minimal, vaccination is really only beneficial to the recipient. Since the young are more at risk from road traffic accidents, there is no medical reason for jabbing them with an experimental vaccine to protect them from a disease which spares them. Issues like vascular and neurological damage are known , long term risks , effect on fertility, anyones guess. Medically things are fairly clear, we even have treatments which are rarely discussed, but socially and politically this remains a mess, with lots of lies and half truths. Rational criticism and evaluation of what has happened will take a generation.

    Edinburgh vs Glasgow - 23/07/21

    Too close to call. Edinburgh maybe slight favs, but if Glasgow ride to their best they can win as Monarchs tail too long and reserve s are key. Cookie / Sam clashes should be worth the admission money

    Not for a country with 1.3 billion (at least) Remember in the UK, population nearly 70 million, we lose 600K each year. Death ha s not been cancelled.......

    Joe must be following the science which says a LFT is more accurate if you stick it up your ar5e. Must have slipped….

    I think Sweden is a liberal democracy, with top class public health advisors, where civil liberties have been respected, and its citizens advised of virus mitigation strategies. Australia has decided to return to prison like status, just like its origins.

    Victoria has almost been in complete lockdown with dreadful restrictions on its people who cannot leave the state. Other parts of Australia have ha d an experience less harsh. I do not believe lockdown works, if you wish to control an air borne virus. , I suspect you have sussed that. My question to you, as a proponent of lockdown, is simple...should it remain permanent , or if lifted when do you judge success. You are correct comparing Sweden with Australia and pointing to the latters success. I might compare Sweden with lockdown Britain, or Brazil with Peru. We can easily find an example that fits our mind set and beliefs, call it confirmation bias. As Johan Giesecke warned last March....once you have lockdown, how do you lift it? How do you convince a terrified populace its now safe ??

    Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

    If you believe lockdowns work, may I ask if they should be permanent, and if not when you judge they are no longer required ??

    Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

    No , let me explain. There are lots of theories, gut feelings and hypotheses, even SAGE pronounciations and BBC exclusives. However in medicine , one idea or study cannot be accepted, unless it is replicated and is large enough for statistical significance. Ideally randomised controlled , double blind studies are the gold standard and carry most weight. We do not have anything yet concerning these new vaccine products to say anything positive with certainty. The MHRA submissions for emergency approval showed a very modest benefit to the recipient ( absolute risk reductions less than 1%) and the phase 3 studies ongoing will report in time. But that’s the issue….time. Products like Thalidomide, Rofecoxib and Troglitazone to name just 3, were very effective clinically but time revealed something different. These products may indeed reduce transmission significantly, and your views endorsed, but we do not know that yet. I might point to some of the problems being reported with them, such as the myocarditis in young men, but the true extent and impact is not yet known. Whilst there is great political pressure, the medicine and conclusions can’t be rushed, or we make mistakes. That is my view, I accept others see it differently. Now whilst we are on the topic of RCTs, just don’t mention masks…..

    Not been replicated and effect small. If there was a huge benefit , all the double vaxxed would be “ free” to avoid twice weekly testing, quarantine, and free to travel without multiple testing. How is that progressing? Restrictions roll on and on. Government sponsored hysteria shows no sign of slowing down for a while yet. Henegans team at Cebm.org still a useful source of common sense.
