Oh dear. Except he told Johnson what to do repeatedly. That’s called foresight no matter how hard the shills try to make this pointless name calling stick.

Johnson dithered for months and look at the result

How is calling for more vaccinations hindsight? Literally has nothing to do with hindsight. You tory shills are so irrational. Keir called for a 2 week circuit breaker months ago, which was ignored by Boris and then led to a month long lockdown. Further, Keir called for a nationwide lockdown before Boris announced it yesterday. The opposite of hindsight. But keep peddling the nonsense narrative.

Honestly, Keir Starmer isn't bad for a politician, certainly not bad for a Labour politician.

He's too safe though right now. Put some pressure on the government, provide some sort of opposition!

Hindsight is saying something should have been done after the fact. This is foresight. And I have no idea why foresight is a negative.

And he's still way in front of Johnson. It was Starmer who told the dithering dolt of a Prime Minister to "get a grip," and stop procrastinating about schools, "open, shut, open, er, um, .... Johnson is totally out of his depth.

Not the usual hindsight, but, like yesterday's gems of wisdom, saying what he knew was already in the pipeline.
As regards round the clock.... don't see him doing much night work.
Freezing nights might be a problem, as well as vaccine delays, as each new batch needs to be checked before distribution.

Thanks, DSA. Finally YOU admit that the Government never had the first clue. Wack-a-mole policies concocted by Government and the yes men employed as 'experts.' The PM, PHE, DoE, Ofsted all supported the idea of opening schools and forced parents to send their kids in, only to do a complete U-turn within 24 hours. Its like watching the guy who didn't get the joke still trying to figure it out.

This guy must have a PHD in hindsight.

What are you talking about? This is Starmer proposing something that would help and which is not yet happening. A bit like when he suggested the government abandon its relaxed Christmas plan days BEFORE it did so. Do you even know what hindsight means?

Or do you just parrot what the right wing gutter press call him?

The guy who wanted to introduce a circuit breaker lockdown over half term last year a month before the Tories finally accepted the advice of the scientists to do so? The one who called for more measures when the Tories were relaxing lockdown...

That is what you regard as hindsight? Calling for action weeks in advance is 'hindsight' is it? Really?

Absolutely, any healthy democratic society needs a viable opposition who support the government when necessary and hold them to account when necessary. There is currently no viable opposition in the UK, Mr Starmer flips and flops and his days must surely be numbered. A viable opposition? Don't see it coming from Labour any time soon.

He's right. The virus doesn't work on a 9-5 basis.

The vaccines are just jabs into the muscle. They don't even need to find a blood vessel.

From what I've heard, some regular joes have already been trained in some places to give the vaccine.

Diabetics can inject their own insulation, so it can't be that complicated or risky to give injections into muscle.

Someone clearly unaware of how much smaller the army is than the NHS. Around 80000, some deployed, some on leave, some training for deployment (they do actually have a day job) and many, many of them you woudn't trust with a needle. Add to that the organisational requirements (booking patients, finding suitable locations, delivery and storage of the vaccine etc etc. Try another idea...
05/01/2021 21:30:54 6 1

Only downside is that much of the medical side of the Army is territorial volunteers who work in the NHS. Well it was when I was in.
As for training the rest. Sorry I don't think the PBI or Tankies would be that good with a needle :-)

You are right. And there are plenty of retired nurses that could do it. There are at least 2 in our little village, with previous experience of organising and giving thousands of (flu) vaccinations. They’d do it for free. But apparently they are “too old” at 70.
05/01/2021 22:28:21 4 1

I'm no doctor, but how darn hard can it be to stick a needle in an arm. With a bit of training anyone who is so medically inclined (dentists, pharmacists, vets) can get the right place and angle on a human arm.
05/01/2021 22:33:36 1 1

Actually the injection is intramuscular, not IV. However I agree that it would be better to ask the Army to help with vaccinations rather than testing.
06/01/2021 00:11:52 0 2

I volunteered for the trials and I want the vaccine to be rolled out as quickly as possible but there is absolutely no way I’m having someone give me a jab who has not had proper training. And I’m not talking about online diversity training either.

Puzzled why he thinks the people doing the injecting should?

They can only work so many hours safely whatever the time of day, and it's the number of 'em that'll be the limiting factor in nearly all situations.

We managed to get people through the Brexit voting booths without doing it a silly o'clock - half the population in a single day.

Tell me it isn't just for image & spin from Starmer.
06/01/2021 08:07:50 1 1

because they need to do sub cutaneous injections for a start (or Intramuscular for the Pfizer vac). But there are plenty of trained medics in the forces, so this could work. Clealry the NHS had to row back on its touchy feely agenda and let the vaccinators loose on teh population.

The strange thing about Capitain Hindsight/Kier Starmer is that his magical power is strangely blank when it comes to him NOT prosecuting a certain guy that would fix it.

But on everything else, from Brexit to Covid-19 he is 100% correct...... 2 to 3 weeks AFTER he actually needed to be.

Simple. You train them! We're not talking brain surgery here just a simple routine jab. Based on my own experience, the NHS needs a good kick up the backside and some proper management. Maybe bring in some managers from the big supermarkets which seem perfectly well able to cope with a 24 hours a day and 7 days a week service!

Vaccinators could come from any willing vocation , the training to provide a vaccination is very focussed and should be relatively straightforward , vaccination is a very repetitive process and one that it should be easy to guage vaccinator competence very quickly. The important thing is having the correct environment / support should anyone have a reaction but this should be possible.

The few percent who are clogging up our hospitals (and the people living with them who can spread it to them) would have been protected and shielded.

The other 70% who would barely get a sniffle, would have caught the virus and be immune now. Everyone would be back to normal and just the handful of bed blockers could get the vaccine this winter as a precaution and be released.

24 hour supermarkets are almost deserted outside of normal shopping hours. It'd be an incredibly inefficient use of staff if they weren't already there to restock.

Really, it's a stupid proposal. You're going to make 90 year olds head out and queue up at 4am so you can make less efficient use of the scarce staff capable of giving them? (Shift working inherently gets less usable time from staff.)

Unfortunately, ahead of the last election, he purged his party of candidates he thought might challenge him, meaning the ceiling for Conservative MPs has been set very low.

This is the man who demanded the Government allowed everybody to get together for Christmas...

Then slagged the Government for trying to allow that to happen.

He contradicts his own thoughts on a daily basis simply in the hope that people forget yesterday's meanderings.

He's a chancer.

In April Kier was attacking the government because it didn't have an "exit strategy" from the first lockdown, back when deaths were nearly 1000 a day and increasing. The guy is incredible!

I’m informed of the problem with vaccines. I’m also informed that along with antibiotics, vaccines are one of the most important successful global public health measures in history.
We NEED this vaccine to work, it’s our best hope. It may not, but we need it to work.

Wrong. It's very simple - you pay people overtime pay and you make the money back in tax revenue later by being to open up businesses earlier.

NHS workers will work unsocialable hours for overtime pay. I know I do. It's all the most important thing they can do for their country right now.
