This topic is for all general discussion regarding the current COVID-19 pandemic. There are of course numerous other related topics for discussing specific aspects of this pandemic in more detail. And there are other parts of this forum for more 'off-topic' discussions.

One way to blame every death on covid is to test every dead body with a fraudulent test. 

The phrase 'It's better being dead than having Covid' somehow comes to mind...

 

Considering how dumbed down the populace has become, I think that above has potential as the main BBC and government propaganda slogan.

 

They could try variants (ho, ho) such as: 'Get the vaccine now - it's better being dead than having Covid!'

Yes that's it. Have you had one too?

The wife did and i tell you I am gutted. Lording it over me she is. Asking wy they chose her will give me sleepless nights. 

 

It's in the bin now 

 

I couldn't work out if the test was to be return kit and kaboodle or just the result reported.

Yes, I know what you mean 

 

I've retrieved my letter from the bin to look at it properly, and it doesn't specify whether the kit or just the result are returned.

 

It says in bolded text, to please be aware the tests are not 100 per cent accurate on an individual level. Why on an individual level, I wonder. If that's the case then they are not accurate on any level and hence fairly pointless for the purpose.

Went to a local stand in the park group meet today.

It was good to meet like minded people on the same wavelength irl.

I'm always kind of shy at first, but they were very welcoming.

Was getting regular (3-4 times a week) texts from my GP / NHS to book my jab. Ignored them, but they got annoying. Eventually I read one & it said I could click to stop the texts. Did that & it took me to page which asked for my DoB, then other info, then wanted an essay explaining my reasons for not booking! Bollocks to that, just gone back to ignoring them.

Yes that's a cracker ain't it. 

 

It's 60% accurate over 50,000 results? 

Smacks of gross manipulation

 

Honest to fk how these people can professionally use these products for scientific study is beyond me.

I go on the 'preggers' mentality. If a pregnoid test didn't work on an individual level but over 300 tests was 70% accurate I wouldn't be happy

 

Like the PCR test false +ve and -ve s

Its FUBAR

Are they serious? If I wrote my essay they would need treatment for shock.

Yes to prevent the evil widespread impositions upon everyone's life by a group of maniacal football club owners. 

When will the masses wake up to the struggle.

Before we know it there will be a select group of clubs with all the money, the best pp layers and will dominate English football

 

It's important shit

We had two here in Birmingham yesterday:

 

Day of city centre protests includes one person sitting in road vs traffic

As a group of around 80 protesters marched around Birmingham in their campaign against a new police bill, climate change protesters were also on the Bristol Road

Two separate but very different types of protests were carried out in Birmingham city centre this weekend.

While one Extinction Rebellion supporter worried about climate change sat down alone on a busy main road a group of around 80 people marched across the city centre to demand "We want justice!" in their campaign against a new police bill.

Extinction Rebellion Birmingham issued a press statement about the actions of "Fran" on Bristol Road.

The release was headlined: "I will not be a bystander’: Two years on from Parliament’s declaration of climate emergency local person takes action in Birmingham with 100s of others around the UK."

The note continued: "On Bristol Road at 11am today, a local person stopped traffic for over an hour by peacefully sitting in the road wearing a sign that read 'I’m terrified of a disastrous old age because of the climate crisis'.

"As she sat in the way of oncoming traffic, Fran risked her life in order to speak out about Government inaction on climate two years on from Parliament’s declaration of an environment and climate emergency."

Saturday's action in Selly Oak was part of a co-ordinated 'Rebellion of One' plan which happened in towns and cities across the UK, from Aberdeen to Yarmouth.

A 'Waves of Rebellion' will see more protests held each month in the build-up a UN Climate Change Conference called COP26 in Glasgow in November.

 

This was interesting (my emphasis in bold):

Quote

West Midlands Police said: "Around 80 people gathered in Victoria Square on Saturday afternoon before some walked down New Street, Bull Street, Colmore Row and back to Victoria Square before moving off.

"There was no disorder and no arrests. West Midlands Police was not given advance notice of the protest."

 

The article goes on to explain what the 'Kill The Bill' protests are about:

Quote

Why are they protesting?

'Kill the bill' protesters are worried that if the Police, Crimes, Sentencing and Courts Bill becomes law it will be a draconian measure to limit people's rights to use their civil liberties to protest in a democracy whereas the Home Office argues that people not involved in protests also have a right - to get on with their lives.

A Home Office policy paper "factsheet" last updated on April 16, 20201 features a quote from Her Majesty’s Inspector of Constabulary, Matt Parr CB who said: "Protests are an important part of our vibrant and tolerant democracy. Under human rights law, we all have the right to gather and express our views. But these rights are not absolute rights.

"The balance may tip too readily in favour of protesters when – as is often the case – the police do not accurately assess the level of disruption caused, or likely to be caused, by a protest.

"These and other observations led us to conclude that a modest reset of the scales is needed."

 

I can sort of sympathise and agree with this, people do have the right to peacefully protest. But as becomes apparent further on in the article, it seems that certain groups want to be 'picky and choosy' about who has the right to protest.

 

The article goes on to list various protests and demonstrations that have taken place in Birmingham over the last year - all the usual suspects, but fails to mention the 'anti-lockdown' protests, including the one that David Icke appeared at, apart from the one rally and march, which is dismissed as

A group of anti-vaxxers marched around Birmingham city centre on December 5, 2020.

How insulting and patronising!

 

So to sum up, if you demonstrate against the police, or in support of Black Lives Matter, then that is deemed as 'acceptable'.

 

However if you protest against draconian lockdown measures, and demand your freedom back from tyranny, that is frowned upon.

I under 40 so I've not received anything as yet. Not sure how they'll contact me but they can do one in any event.

Funny how the media gives that protest so much coverage. Makes you think, they must have an agenda... 

 

Those protests are the fakest ones I have seen since extinction rebellion took over environmental protesting, after fracking protests they all went funny and started basically just doing protesting for the elites, they are like useful protesters for the elites.

I just read my own link back to myself, and it says there was 'a group of around 80 protestors'. 😄

 

Yet the Birmingham Mail failed to report on the December march, where there were clearly thousands of protestors, all railing aganst lockdown measures, but now dismissed off-hand as 'anti-vaxxers'.

 

Yes, definitely an agenda at play...

I just ignored it as they removed any reply or response.

The letter comes with a leaflet in so many languages!
