@PurpleDaisies I don't think 49-year-old Therese Coffey needs to worry on that front. Grin

Is this a bad dream are we in some Matrix-like groundhog day time-loop?

Never mind the parties, or not just the parties. I want to know more about the millions of people who were flying in and out of the UK during what was supposed to be lockdown.

There is. no value. to lockdowns. that are continually broken. by mates of the worthless corrupt excuse for government in Britain.

The fact that new variants still find their way to us show that we are still being taken for mugs.

@EnnAndJay

Doubling time of two days = 90000 cases of Omicron in two weeks time.

And they're doing fuck all to stop it.

We're vaccinated.

[quote wincarwoo]@Lobster2018 I would say that it lessens your chance of dying. Is that good enough for you?[/quote]
No it's not good enough Grin... for a virus that has a very low mortality rate.

[quote theDudesmummy]@onewayanother why would you not get the booster to protect your own health and possibly that of others?[/quote]

I'm young, healthy and no underlying issues. I had covid before my vaccine and I was fine. I'm doh me jabbed but will not be be having a booster. The vaccine was to let us get on with our own lives and again we're back here today

Feel sorry for hospitality and entertainment venues, Christmas is a huge part of their revenue, plan B will kill them now.

Any prizes involved @PrincessNutNuts?

Thankfully we've fully prepared for a virtual Christmas - all shopping done, all (wrapped) presents already exchanged, Zoom quizzes and games sorted.

I'd like to say I feel sorry for Joe Public who'll end up having to scurry about in the bottom of the freezer for their Christmas dinner after all their plans get dashed, but I don't.

I don't think many people will adhere to that.

Time for civil disobedience? What's the point of being disciplined in a country that celebrates lies?

Whitty said that just two jabs might not be enough to evade the new variant
If people are not going to get the booster , then we might be fucked ?

@Bouledeneige

The booster does help against Omicron - at least Pfizer have announced that today - they are not sure if two jabs will offer fuller protection.

Tbh I’m not sure why pp are stopping after two

And this all is shit but I don’t get that about booster

I'm double jabbed. Not a chance will I be having a booster when it makes not a bit of difference to what I can/can't do. 
The vaccines are not given so that you can go to the pub and have a holiday abroad. They are for preventing you becoming seriously ill and ending up in hospital (or dying).

That seems like a pretty good reason to have it, but you do you.

*@nordica*
Are you happy to have jab after jab and still have restrictions?
I had covid before my vaccine and was just fine. I had both vaccines as I was told it would protect others. Everyone has been offered the vaccine and over 40's the booster and we are back here today. The vaccines are not working if we have to go back to restrictions.

Do you know the percentage that aren't vaxxed? That's your answer.

Why is there no outrage or fury from anyone in that press conference to mirror that being felt by innumerable members of the pubic about the hilarity surrounding the alleged Conservative Party parties last year.

@LivinLaVidaLoki

Sorry didn't catch it earlier but did they say that daily testing or contact testing would replace the 10 day isolation for contacts with Omicron?

This was the bit I was interested in. No details on gov.uk yet though. I’ve had 3 jabs and covid so much lower risk. Biggest concerns for me was being an omnicon contact before Xmas

Remember when they said we would be having over 100,000 cases a day. Never happened.

So how do 3 monthly boosters work for young women, and of reproductive age/trying to conceive when large amounts of us had our periods go haywire for weeks/months after the initial vaccine? I was happy to get my initial vaccine but my period vanished for around 3 months after. Having to deal with that once a year isn't ideal but every 3 months is madness and I wouldn't be willing to make that choice.

Because they will lose their jobs if they challenge the establishment?

Around 5 million people are not vaccinated at all.
Nothing they say will improve this figure.

[quote Quartz2208]@EnnAndJay I guess that it becomes semantics about what managing means. I think 200k plus cases will be possible.

Cases actually I dont think will be the marker for any of this - it will be seriousness. At the moment data on that is looking ok (not great but ok) and the plan will be to manage it as much as possible so that is kept down.

I dont know many now who havent had Covid at least once. I have just had my boosters etc.

I do agree though I think some sensible isolation plan for close contacts - maybe PCR day 3 to release (given the 3 day innoculation period) then LFTs or for 12-18 LFTs for 10 days. Particularly for household contacts.[/quote]
Now you admit it!

I remember when your mob shat on anyone who dared mention that we may reach 100000 cases eventually.

@puffin23

Anti vaxers need to be restricted in where they are allowed to go, and the rest of us to be free to live a more normal life. people who refuse to be vaccinated are a danger to everybody else.

😂
Seriously?
You do know that not everyone can be vaccinated don’t you?
All the people (l know)that have had covid have been vaccinated !
