I used to have to sit with my great great grandmother every Saturday. A bit boring at times but she had a massive garden with everything you could eat in it.  The plums were never ending supply and hid a pathway to the park behind it. A bit like a secret garden. Sometimes I was allowed to take a friend with me. 
 

anyway, she hated doctors and pharma.  Never took any medication and had a colourful language although only about six stone ringing wet in appearance and used to ration the quality streets so I didn’t end up as fat as “Maria” down the road.  It was a nightmare breaking her will so I could have another quality street!

 

I always what she knew. She knew a lot but didn’t go into any detail. There was a reason she hated doctors and pharma so much. She passed away when I was 16 so didn’t explain anything other than she hated them.  I think she lived through something similar to what we are seeing today. I wish I would be able to have a conversation with her now.

Harry and Megan, two more useless celebrity headline grabbers, claim, "We will not be able to truly recover until everyone, everywhere, has equal access to the vaccine."

 

These millionaires care so much about the poor, "We are inviting you to contribute whatever you can to bring vaccines to families in the world's most vulnerable places.

Seriously? I thought Gates was doing that already. Also, weren't they supposed to be chasing a quiet life away from the headlines?

Laundry blue aka blue bag makes your whites whiter, but I'm sure is actually an iron salt, not methylene and doesn't disinfect anything, Often used to make a horse's white socks whiter for a show, too

Is that what my mum used to call 'Dolly Blue'? She used to buy it from the rag and bone man (along with donkey stones) and it came in small muslin bags. She added it to the weekly wash.

Yes and she had lived through both wars. She had probably seen the same psychological manipulation as we are today.  The doctor said her medical notes was the thinnest he had ever seen and I knew why because she hated them.

When you think all those years back without the internet and they were what we would now call awake.  Very lucky to have had my grandmothers in my life. Both were strong women.

When anyone asks did you get your vaccine yet?, say
"No, did you get your immune system yet?"

Or just: I've had all necessary injections, thanks. Quite true and turns away wrath.

More and more shops/businesses around me giving out freebies to those whom have had the Almighty Shot. I suppose they did the same thing to get folks to take the polio vaccine, too. 😏

 

 

These shops and business dishing out freebies to those who've had the jab are encouraging people to get the jab - they're part of the problem too :(

The most selfish throughout this whole thing have been the boomers in my opinion. They left their parents to die in care homes and then all rushed to get a vaccine so they could travel. Regardless of shedding their infertility on to their children and other adults younger than them. 

 

I even had one say, oh well I have had my children now, I don't care if i am infertile. 

 

They are also the worst NPC of the lot with their dirty masks and stupid over the top social distancing. 

No, it's the younger ones around 45 or so. I'm a boomer (I think) and I've never worn a mask or bothered about distancing. For my age group, our parents died probably 15-20 years ago - or more (mine were born during the first world war) and were more likely to have lived at home than today's elderly. It may depend on class and area more than age

Lol.

When someone "accuses" me of being an anti-vaxxer, I say, "You say it like it's a negative thing?"

It disarms them!

I ought to follow it up with:

Or just tell them you're in the control group :)

Grown up with the television and had years of propaganda. I actually think you are right. 

 

It was the boomer types out clapping wasn't it. Early to late 60s seem to be the worse. 

 

I also find the middle aged "ard men" contemptable at this point. Strutting around with their masks in the street. They are just completely apathetic with what they are doing. Its to fight the Rona, innit. 

 

 

Nah, round here it was the younger ones with school age kids who were encouraged to do rainbow graffiti on the walls and windows - retch!

I'm a bit too much of an auld wifie to channel Chuck Norris - sadly.

Eventually received a response from my MP when I raised conflict of interest in MHRA approving a vaccine after receiving 980k in funding from B&M Gates (who fund the very same so called vaccine)..... as you can see it does not address the issue raised whatsoever! I’ve responded suggesting a meeting...
