£37bn taxpayers’ money blown with little to show. Wow...

Imagine what that could have bought if invested in the NHS; potentially some enduring capacity that would help in the medium-long term ability to deal with CV-19, it’s variants and future pandemics.

Unbelievable.
Public money transferred into the pockets of Tory party donors. Objective achieved. Removed

Have you any proof of that and if so,so what?
We are not going to 'Get Rid Of This Virus' by hiding as timid mice in our houses, making ourselves ill.

Shock Horror, folks have realised that this is no more than a Common Cold.
Diets high in fibre, carbs (sugar), low in nutrients (Mg, Zn, Vits B, C & D) plus alcohol use have made this thing.

Allied to Control Freakery & flat-out panic from Government backed up by heavy-handed ugly policing

"We are not going to 'Get Rid Of This Virus' by hiding as timid mice in our houses, making ourselves ill."

In fact, an article a couple of months ago in Scientific American, indicates that the scaremongering HAS CAUSED a lot of mental health problems!
Good. Sounds like most people realize that Covid is a very mild virus that isn't worth bothering with. The restrictions have been the biggest over-reaction in all of recorded history. Removed

Where TF have you been for the past 12 months.....
At last! Someone who realises the truth. Covid-19 has not been proven to exist in the way the public have been led to believe. We have all been had, and all these totally unwarranted restrictions must stop immediately. And yes, i am an `anti-vaxxer` and proud of it. Vallance, Hancock, and Whitty should all be facing a court charged with crimes against humanity. Removed

I wish the media would stop talking about 'the black community', when they mean black people. Black people are a racial group, not a community. Communities are where people live, not what colour or religion they are. 'The black community' and 'black communities' are terms which belong to the former apartheid South Africa, not a modern British society trying to integrate everyone. Stop it! Removed
Black people call themselves a 'community' just like LGBTQ+ do, but I'm not allowed to say I'm part of the white, middle aged, hetrosexual, able bodied male 'community' as that would entitle me to claim some form of discrimination Removed

Whilst the government have not been great for a lot of this pandemic, it's obvious that personal responsibility and civic duty has also been found wanting.

I have sympathy for those who cannot afford to isolate and do not have the option of working from home but I also feel that there have been some high profile examples of poor behaviour that have gone unpunished.

The fact that half the adult population does not know the three main symptoms of COVID-19 is a sorry reflection on the level of interest they have in the pandemic. Perhaps these are the same “Green” generation ignoring social distancing and leaving our parks littered with their partying refuse.

Yet travellers from France are required to test and self isolate

This is because the education system for the last 25 years has churned out idiots by the millions.

Pathetic
Arrest, prosecute and, when found guilty, execute all Covid 1984 rule breakers. Pass the new laws now. The public support strong measures.

Anyone who refuses vaccination should be taken to an internment camp and stay there indefinitely until they give informed consent.

Obey the rules and stay safe. If you don't like it, why not move to North Korea or Scotland?
