It's a virus. They mutate. Stop trying to continually scare everyone BBC.

Maybe highlight that they are still happy that the vaccine will work with it.....
The World is trapped inside a pseudo-reality where logic&truth are usurped by fear&expediency
One of the main constructs of a pseudo-reality is to present a plausible but deliberately wrong understanding of reality.
Believers then interpret the world as members of a cult would.
The cult of covid, enforced by a State and MSM enthral to their own sanctimony&power, with lockdown&vax as our saviour

It is completely beyond me as to why so many thousands of people feel it is necessary to jet all around the world at this time, and indeed why governments are allowing it.

So shut your mouth pleb. Know your place, don’t you dare go to a friends house for drinks and definitely don’t ask questions like that.

Pathetic. He’s a hero, you are a disgrace. He tested positive and died of it. You are still here.

If the 20% of stupid people had taken notice of the governments warnings in the first place we wouldn’t be in this predicament now.
Will thick ignorant people ever learn ?

'With' is the word.
Big difference between WITH & OF.
" He died of Cancer "
" He died of Cancer, With anxiety, arthritis, blurry vision, boil on his nose, Corona virus, high blood pressure, debt, a Range Rover, a 300k mortgage.
With is meaningless in the context of death. Its propaganda.

Big thanks to British Airways for offering Captain Tom a trip of a lifetime to Barbados. Great promo for them. He’s dead now. Cheers. Removed
