His own arguments seem a little inconsistent....perhaps these people rocking up in London have already had it and some immunity.

Don`t get me wrong....they have managed this completely inappropriately and many of them, including Johnson should get punted.

He seems to be equating the relatively small minority of people who were partying with the whole of the government. I also don`t accept that people will instinctively do what they consider necessary to protect themselves and their families like wear face coverings, wash their hands, socially distance, etc. Some people have to be encouraged and we all need to know what specific measures are likely to be effective.

He also doesn`t answer the overriding question - why do they want to control us? Is it just for the kick of it? All the evidence suggests Boris Johnson would rather let things rip.

Oliver is an idiot. Only a few months ago he came out with the ridiculous statement;
"If my freedom means you might catch Covid from me, then so be it. That`s honestly how I see it.
For the sake of freedom, yours and mine together, I will cheerfully risk catching Covid. That is a chance one among many that I am prepared to take and happily. Life is not safe. Freedom is not safe. For the sake of freedom, yours and mine together all freedoms being of equal value, I will cheerfully risk much else besides."

I was pretty sure this clip would arouse a fair bit of controversy, which is always good for stimulating debate. He does make some valid points about the way the pandemic has been handled (mishandled?) and the relaxed, contradictory attitudes of some of the PM`s close collaborators, but undoes that with some outlandish claims.

https://www.heraldscotland.com/news/homenews/19486321.anger-scots-gb-newss-neil-oliver-says-cheerfully-risk-catching-covid-name-freedom/

What is true though is that our leaders and press are totally making the most of things to their own end as demonstrated with the mild omicron variant which the press are bigging up for clicks/sales, Sturgeon to bolster her popularity and Boris to distract us from his total car crash of a government.

This doesn’t suggest anyone demonstrated any great wisdom or foresight as any fool could see these groups exploiting anything in their own interests.

I will however watch us get stripped of rights and sold into medical penury, keep up with the passport or else.
To this day still, unvaccinated friends, I know one that`s caught it, vaccinated, not performing so well.
And this week marks the third person I know who had their good boy/girl stickers on for getting their jabs being admitted to hospital with heart problems (admittedly I know a lot of people...but that works both ways).
You guys keep up hoovering the panic from our ever so honest politicians, I`m getting on with life, I`ll leave you to it.

From my point of view Neil Oliver does not keep very good company. He has been on platforms with the likes of Farage and here he is now sitting in a GB News studio. His naivety is what has struck me in the past: he often describes himself as an apolitical man of common sense who is only saying what everyone really thinks, but every right wing bigot in my lifetime has claimed the very same. He gets het up about ‘culture wars’ and indoctrination in schools, forgetting that when he was a pupil at Dumfries Academy that indoctrination took a different form as it did in all Scottish schools. Maybe he just preferred the old religion of Queen, Church and Capitalism over the modern form of Ecology and Diversity.

However, I ‘m afraid to say I agreed with most of what he said in this piece to camera, even if it has been promoted by business interests concerned at their lack of revenue. There has been no left wing case made against the emergency rule by governments across Europe which is why opponents are reduced to scuffling with police spraying water cannons. The Left mostly collapsed in 1914 when it tucked in behind Nationalism instead of holding to its anti-war position. I hope we’re not seeing a similar disaster unfold now.

Protecting vulnerable people`s wellbeing over protecting economic interests has no left wing case, huh?

Also didn`t the left do rather well in 1917, just three years after it apparently disappeared? Granted, that victory quickly descended into fascist hellscape when the Bolsheviks decided that slaughtering their allies would be expedient to their aims.

He`s an idiot.

The rules were put in place to protect the NHS and also the most vulnerable. Just because those making the rules (allegedly) broke then does not mean those rules should be binned. What it means is those alleged rule breakers should be punished.

So, yes, be angry, but don`t decide you suddenly don`t need to follow the rules.

As I said on the other thread, this isn`t about posh people breaking the rules whilst us "plebs" follow them. There are plenty of "plebs" who broke the rules too - the difference is they didn`t write the bloody rules! That is what we should be angry about. The people we elect to guide us are hopeless. My anger is that I didn`t elect them, they have almost no representation in the country I live in, yet I know that they`ll get elected again at the next election.

It`s easy to point and say "stupid English people" but they have no strong alternative now. Labour are still lost at sea, the Lib Dems are unelectable and the Green Party is tiny in England. They have no SNP option.

Protecting against Covid and protecting the well being of the population might overlap but they are not the same thing. There is a trade-off between protection and freedom, especially when laws are being passed on the hoof, and these laws will long outlast any need for protection. We’ll find out what the wellbeing of the population is then.

As Orwell’s character says in 1984: ‘The point of power is power.’ An ambitious politician like Starmer, who although leader of the opposition baled out the government this evening, will hold to that creed. He spent part of his earlier life locking people up and is rather proud of the fact.

A note for Wotsit. Fascism is funded by corporate money in an attempt to save Capitalism. Bolshevism is driven by worker power in an attempt to overthrow Capitalism. 8 out of every 10 Nazi soldiers were killed by the Red Army. Not much in common there, so the terms are not interchangeable.

His last point might be significant. When Ramsay MacDonald and Lenin opposed WW1 they were denounced as traitors for not joining in the hysteria and were considered finished in politics. By 1924 they were running two of the most powerful countries in the world.

At the risk of dragging this off topic, the Bolsheviks were funded by the Imperial German Government in a successful attempt to take Russia out of World War I.

The Bolsheviks then slaughtered the real grassroots revolutionaries because they were in favour of stuff like workers` syndicates free of central control. Ideas such as those threaten the power of fascist dictatorships so they had to go.

Like Lenin, Ramsay McDonald was also a traitor to his professed cause when power turned his head. So I suppose you may be correct Sammer, the left did die somewhere around 1914, but only because Lenin psychotically massacred it.

I don’t think not abiding by the rules because the government didn’t is the right way to go but his point about how government acted were pretty on point and how they are playing on the fear factor.

Omicron from yesterday I believe, only one death in the UK so far and it’s not been confirmed whether that was due to the virus or any other event, could well have been the virus, could equally have been a car accident for all we know at the moment.

Yes, 36 per cent.

It would be interesting to see how this varies by age. If the elderly are more likely to get their jabs then, by my reckoning, this the difference even more stark.

Exactly why the immunosuppressed were offered a `3rd dose` a few months ago and will receive their boosters soon. It`s an extra dose as their bodies struggle to produce the antibodies to fight it off on their own.

He likely "only" had the three doses. As you suggest, the booster is separate. Unfortunately, we have an idiot leading the nation who doesn`t appear to acknowledge that the booster isn`t the same as a third dose. That third dose is only available to those most at risk. Adults who are most at risk get a booster on top of that third dose too.

Ouch
Quick look at the maths on this one…

30% of hospitalisations from 10% of population

Let’s call population ‘x’ and hospitalisations ‘y’

30% of y / 10% of x = chance of hospitalisation unvaxxed
70% of y / 90% of x = chance of hospitalisation vaxxed

Unvaxxed / vaxxed = multiple of likelyhood

(30%y / 10%x) / (70%y / 90%x) = rate
=> (30%y / 10%x) * (90%x / 70%y)
the x & y cancel out
Rate = (30%/10%)*(90%/70%)
=> non vaxxed are 3.85 times as likely to be hospitalised…

WITHOUT factoring in that the majority of unvaxxed are younger and non-vulnerable and the majority of older and/or vulnerable people ARE vaxxed.

Were all 23 in hospital admitted because of the virus or for another reason. How old were the patients? Is there a breakdown at all?

Not doubting the unvaccinated are a higher risk of getting ill, have always known that and accepted that when I made my decision. 70% is a scary number but that is on a small sample over only a week. If it’s the same percentage over a longer term then yes staggering.

Also what’s the population of Lux these days?

My next door neighbour has just had the booster and she’s very ill at the moment, I have her daughter in my house right now looking after her.

Other weeks? I mentioned what I read today.

Why would any other period detract from a Government statement about the situation now?

It was a Covid-19 pandemic report - sod all about people in hospital for other reasons.


Population of Lux - 630k or thereabouts

No data on the age of hospitalisations, but i read that 11 people died last week with an average age of 84.
People diagnosed with covid-19 during this week have an average age of 33.2

I`ve always enjoyed Oliver`s "history" programmes on the BBC and thought he made some good points on the clip, but he undermined his argument somewhat by suggesting it all pointed to a world wide plot.

Not surprisingly, the clip was forwarded to me by a no Vax relative.....

Eta, We've no way of knowing, with any certainty, how many viewers regularly watch GBN. Remember the bookies were offering 8/1 a Brexit victory, the day before the 2016 Referendum took place.

"Hold on a minute, I`ll just start walking away from you, I like talking to folk over my shoulder."

He`s lookin` a bit rough these days. As a historian and TV presenter he`s not too bad - a bit straight-laced and serious, but I`ve thought for a while he`s getting nuttier. Now, as I`m almost certain to meet him 🙂 - I`ve got my response ready for when he tries to blind me with his oratory - "Awa` an` bile yer heid." 🤓

I totally get his argument. There will be plenty of vulnerable people, especially those in the older groups thinking the young and healthy should just go out and get on with it.

However, the issue now isn`t so much protecting people from COVID, it`s protecting people in general. Think about the impact if the bin men all get it, or the medical staff or train/bus drivers etc. Chaos. I don`t know what the answer is, but we need to reach a point where COVID is an accepted risk and people are sensible enough to take precautions where appropriate. We all know that person who used to come into the office despite being ill and would sniff and cough all day long spreading their cold to everyone.

I`ve long thought that folk with colds and flu should be given time off work on full pay (by govt). I wonder if it`d be good for productivity overall. Imagine a world in which that happens - you could go to work feeling that somebody is taking care of your health and well-being and the workplace is not a virus-infested pit where some folk take a delight in making others ill.
