Moses "Let my people go" Johnson was voted into power with a landslide victory by the British voting public. Don't blame him, put it where it belongs with your friends, relatives, neighbours and colleagues that created this mess. . He's done exactly what he said he'd do when he said "A lot of you, and you're loved ones, are just going to have to die and the rest will have to take it on the chin"

But when you discover that basically only those who were going to die within 12 months of old age or chronic disease are likely to die from Covid you lose your stick to bash Boris and Brexit. And we know that that is the Beeb's reason to be now.

Remember the opposition, who 'hold the govt to account', sat on the fence and simply threw hindsight as their answer?
The media and Labour seem to be running this, god knows why as the Tories have a majority and should have just gone with the initial plan for herd immunity!

Looking forward to this ending. The sheer selfishness and arrogance displayed by many throughout has been embarrassing and shameful to watch.

He couldn’t be bothered and thousands have died as a result of his criminal negligence.

I was at my local hospital, none of the staff had a good word to say about our governments shambolic handling of covid. The NHS are doing a great job under very difficult conditions. Stay safe.
That's because the NHS is mostly staffed by rabid left wing nut jobs who have an ideological hatred of the Tories.

Frankly I couldn't give a monkeys what the left wing bigots think or say.

You only have to look at the footage of hundreds of our BAME friends playing in the snow in Leicester yesterday to see where the problem is. Just 100 yards from a Police station, yet nothing was done.

Meanwhile if poor old Mrs Smith has her granddaughter around for a socially-distanced cup of tea they'd slap her in handcuffs.

50,000 of this could have been avoided if it wasn't for Johnson. His intentional killing of 50,000 people though incompetence, dithering and idiocy is treasonable. He should be put on trial, and I believe the death penalty is still on the statute books for the crime.

What do you actually know about what is going on in the NHS?

Staff have contracts which are basically being ripped up at the moment.

Annual leave has been cancelled again - do you expect staff to work day in day out with no rest in sight?

Your contribution is what?
Not to mention Med Student being used on wards to cover staff.. they're not even paid. but yeah get on with it

?? 100000 deaths which potentially could have been avoided

?? Recent reports from the BBC show how China was reluctant to give out early data about the virus, how it spreads etc. In Wuhan hospitals, workers were denied masks for fear of how it would look on the outside

?? The world community must unite. If China is guilty of covering up this virus then China must pay compensation to the world

Just how two-faced is the BBC. Delete posters comments criticising China but they are airing a very critical programme themselves this evening on BBC2 at 21:00 hrs.
As the median age of the population increases, so it seems is the disconnect with the younger generation. The world's economy is more specialised than when you went to school in 1970. All those manufacturing jobs are now gone to places where it's cheaper to make things. That's how capitalism works.

Giving young Scots the ability to specialise is crucial for our economy.

There will be more to come but provided we can keep the vaccine flowing the end is in sight
Here's a question.

What's the vaccine do? Be honest, you don't know, you didn't check, you haven't asked for the safety data because if you did, you'd know it's not available. Why? Because they never did the safety trials.

So, what's the benefit of the so called vaccine? Can you lose the mask? No. Can you escape lockdown? No. Does it stop you getting ill? No.

So go on, what's it for?

I lost my younger sister (from cancer and not covid) and getting closure is so difficult given the restrictions.

Hopefully we can all achieve this as and when safe to do so.
Sorry to hear about your sister, so how did she die of COVID? That;s what they put on the death certificate, she;s one of the 100,000. So, tell me, the lack of care she was given is justified by the flu is it? Removed

I have a question for someone informed...

How can the number of deaths where CV-19 is mentioned on the death certificate be more than the number where a positive test was recorded within 28 days? This means either deaths are being recorded as CV-19 without a positive test, in which case how do they know, or the positive test was over 28 days ago, also unlikely?

Thanks
They changed the rules when they realised people weren't scared and increased it to within 60 days. It also means you need to know exactly when the count changed to be able to check their numbers.

They have lied and lied and lied to sell drugs that they make a personal profit from. Most people will now let them inject insulin in a massive dose just to escape lockdown.

100,000 plus deaths the Tory government are doing a great job

Voting against feeding poor children the Tory government are doing a great job

£millions of corrupt contracts for Tory donors the Tory government are doing a great job

Everyone of those steps are catastrophic failure but not for Tory supporters destroying this country
100,000 deaths you say? How many of those were caused by COVID? don't pretend to know because you don't.

There are people dying of cancer through lack of treatments, heart disease, all sorts. The NHS tests them and puts down covid if they can get a positive test. If they don't test, then if they can insinuate symptom's, they put down covid.

Out of 100,000 deaths, 400 are covid.
