Covid: 'Virus going in right direction but not fast enough'
28/01/2021 | news | health | 408
Coronavirus infections are still at very high levels in many regions, a study estimates.
Angela Rayner embarrassing herself again by trying to use collective group data to prove that a single profession is high risk.

Yes, frontline key workers are higher risk - but teachers are an also-ran in that category. Their death rate is nearly half vs. the working age population.

Why not stick up for the groups that top the charts instead? Oh I see, they're lowly male factory workers.

According to Labour teachers should be given priority ahead of any other group of workers for vaccinations
It won’t be possible to teach when the electricity fails, the taps run dry, sewage overflows in the street, and there’s no food in the shops
Let’s stick to the advice of the medical and scientific experts on vaccination priorities rather than the Deputy Leader of the Labour Party

agree...thats all we've had is whinging from teachers and their union. They are in a very safe job and besides that they are never in work.

Angela Rayner is just some strange curiosity now.

A bit like Diane Abbott, and that David Lammy.

People tend to lean forward and listen when she talks because she could come out with absolutely anything.

Labour get their tick in the box, we all get a good laugh.

I suspect that has as much to do with fear of losing your job and/or not wanting to "wimp out" if you feel ill. Teachers on the other hand have enough intelligence to realise they're stuck in a room for much of the day with pupil carriers who don't abide by social distancing rules and if school by me is anything to go by neither do the parents of those pupils.

Interesting how those you aim your frustrations at are the opposition and not those who are actually in charge. No wonder this government have no concerns for any repercussions for their actions.

There is still no excuse for Covidiocy, such as trips to Scotland or Barnard Castle.

Aww diddums. Does the truth hurt ? Are you a Cummings fanboy ?
The use of fear in post-1984 world has diminishing returns very quickly

We don't see dead bodies in the streets - we don't know healthy people who have died of the virus - we might no one or even some over 70's or an unhealthy (obese or at least quite fat to us) 50 something but they die of heart attacks too - don't they

We have no sympathy for "frazzled" NHS staff as it's what they're paid for

This is a disgusting view. Many otherwise healthy young people have long-covid. Many have been told they will need oxygen tanks in the next few years. Imagine, something in their early 30s being told you need oxygen tanks for the rest of your life. As for the frazzled NHS, I dare you to approach a big muscled paramedic and tell them "it's what your paid for".
You really are a :

We really are in dangerous times when an elected member of parliament raises concerns that millions of people have and is then turned on by the covid thought police even the sheeple on hear need to open their eyes
Nothing wrong with raising concerns but doing so in the face of overwhelming evidence, is an act of gross stupidity.
On balance i'd say being a "Sheeple" is better than being a stupid cretin

If Johnson and his brexit cabinet had taken this seriously, we'd be like New Zealand, Australia and Taiwan. He never took it seriously then and he's not taking it seriously now as he galavants around the country politicking.
