Covid: Extra 1.7m vulnerable added to shielding list
16/02/2021 | news | health | 331
Move brings total to 4m in England and means vaccinations will be prioritised more quickly.
Perhaps they should just target "culture" - after all it seems like certain cultures in multi-cultural UK have a different attitude to managing their lives during covid and this has resulted in higher death rates. Removed

Perhaps political correctness should take a step back and inform people risking their,and other peoples health,by sticking to non-hygenic toilet practises that toilet paper is not haram.

As i Have always said we do not live in a multi-cultural country. We live in a country with many ethnicities and cultures that by and large live within those cultures. If we were multi-cultural they would be evenly spread all over the UK. With this system many cultures live outside the parameters of trust that other do.

Totally incorrect as van tam said the other day there has been almost no difference in how covid affects groups and factually it’s now over 100k of deaths are white so that blows your comments out of the water.

That is a lazy generalisation of different cultures ...it's called racism...after having seen a lot of pictures of people ignoring rules at holiday beauty spots /illegal gatherings/parties etc over the last year..i think you will find the vast majority would be classed as white ....what do you call this "attitude to managing their lives " ?
I don't think it's right obese people get it before anybody else,they only sit in the house and eat so shouldn't really catch it,working people who have to go on public transport are more needing Removed

63% of the population is overweight, and 28% are obese.

They're just as likely to go on public transport as anyone else.

Given that weight, ethnicity and underlying disease are the main risk factors irs difficult to see how the lefties keep blaming the Government for deaths !
That’s because you’re a troll acount. Removed

It's important to recognise ethnicity, weight and levels of deprivation.

After all, Britain is a compassionate society that looks after everyone, regardless of these factors or any others.
It's important to recognise ethnicity, weight and levels of deprivation.

One cannot account for self inflicted injury (refusing vaccination).
Ethnicity has nothing to do with RESPECTING BAME - but rather that nature itself must be biased, sexually discriminating, racist, ageist and unfair to those that want borders.

Viruses IGNORE borders.

Is ethnicity actually a root cause ? Is there reliable evidence to support this, once you take into account things like obesity, diabetes etc ? If it is, is it down to diet/Vitamin D levels?
Maybe some ethnicities are weaker. Removed

The BBC would like you to that despite it seeming like the world leading vaccination programme is a success Sir Hindsight of Kier would have vaccinated 90m people by now and issued a free covid unicorn for every child. This would have been paid for by a Tax on the Evil Rich (tm). Thanks be to the Licence Tax. Removed

Oh well, that's me off the bottom of the COVID vaccination list then. I'm White British, 61, of correct weight for height, tax payer, non furlough receiver, in full time employment, no underlying health conditions, non smoker. The Obese, unfit, lazy fatties living off the state take priority.... AGAIN. Removed

If you are 61, then you are in the first 9 priority groups, so ahead of me at aged 50, and ahead of anyone under aged 50 who doesn't have an underlying health issue.

In my view bigots like you should be at the very bottom of the list ... lots of people have been furloughed or lost their jobs for absolutely no fault of their own and have no option but to 'live off the state'

We owe them a huge debt for what doing their job.. what utter tosh. Why do you not say that for every other worker that has had to work through the pandemic? Are bin men and shop workers below you?
Because a trained animal can work in the shops or on the dust and moreover my life in no way depends on bin men or shop workers

Importantly too I could do their job. Easily. But I wouldn't fancy my chances at the controls of the Hadron Collider quite so much.

I'm not obese but know people who are. It's not just about sitting about eating too much. For many it is a debilitating condition created by deep seated psychological problems and biological disorders. It is clearly not understood by the over simplistic think no more than a minute attitudes.

Perhaps the BBC could actualise its endless "poverty" propaganda by cancelling a season of its game show / reality show pap and handing back some of the £4bn+ it extorts via the hated Licence Tax as a show of good faith. Maybe one or two of its ranting left wing Twitter commentors could forgona month or two of salary instead of telling us what we have to do? Removed

BBC where is article about this Tory filth????

Property developers who built flats covered in dangerous cladding have donated £2.5 million to the Conservative Party SINCE the Grenfell Tower fire in 2017, analysis has found. Boris Johnson has personally received £50,000 from individuals with links to the cladding debacle. (The Times 13/2/21)
