Elon Musk goes further, he reckons virtual reality will be so advanced it will be impossible to tell the difference been reality and the virtual world and we will all live in a simulation. I don't believe that because I have five senses, that tell me life is real, unless his neural implant blocks them. Which I won't be getting!

And when you look around- at the people - I reckon like 80% would go for it as long as it was worth likes and shares on social media they would jump in the pods. It's scary.

 

My daughter though she reminds me to keep fighting shes 10 and not into electronics she absolutely loves the great outdoors and her friends. Shes been sent home from school as her teacher tested positive. She is a wreck. Hates being stuck at home and having to miss football practice and matches as well as school. Loads of schools round here have kids home again now. It really is utterly shit for them.

Meanwhile in Scotland the Gulag, a recipe for disaster!

Hundreds of thousands of students in Scotland have been banned from socialising and going to bars as coronavirus cases spread to more than 20 universities across the UK.

 

In a set of rules agreed by Scottish university leaders, students across the country were told they will not be allowed to socialise outside their households. They were also told to avoid bars, pubs and other venues completely this weekend.

 

The new rules include the adoption of a “yellow card/red card” disciplinary system which could lead to students losing their places, while police will help tackle rule-breaking.

 

“All universities will make absolutely clear to students that there must be no parties, and no socialising outside their households… Breaches will not be tolerated,” Universities Scotland said after a meeting with the higher education minister, Richard Lochhead. Across Scotland, up to six people from two households are allowed to gather in bars, restaurants or outdoors.

 

It comes after thousands of students UK-wide were forced to go into isolation within days of campuses reopening, as ministers refused to rule out keeping them away from home over Christmas to stop the spread of Covid-19.

 

Scotland, which is home to about 300,000 students in higher and further education, is particularly affected as the academic year starts earlier than in England and Wales. An outbreak of more than 100 confirmed cases at the University of Glasgow led to at least 600 students being told to self-isolate on Wednesday night.

 

The outbreak is said to have originated from socialising during the city’s freshers’ week starting on 12 September. Parents complained about a lack of support for their children, including first-year students living away from home for the first time.

 

The president of NUS Scotland, Matt Crilly, condemned the announcement, saying that it showed “a complete disregard for students’ mental health and wellbeing”.

 

Crilly said: “Tonight’s announcement by Universities Scotland and endorsed by the Scottish government unfairly blames students for the spread of coronavirus and takes the unjustified step of applying different rules to students over and above the rest of the adult population.”

 

Scotland’s University and College Union official Mary Senior said it was “astonishing” that students were being blamed for spreading the virus, and that universities should instead switch to online teaching.

 

“That is what the Scottish government should be introducing, not threatening students with red cards and banning them from going out,” Senior said.

 

Matt Hancock said he is not ruling out the prospect of asking students to stay on campus over Christmas, amid coronavirus clusters in university halls.

 

"The important thing is in the short-term, students once they've gone to university should stay at university so as not to spread the disease."

 

In Dundee, Abertay University, 500 students were asked to self-isolate this week in student accommodation where three people have tested (false) positive.

 

Scotland's national clinical director Professor Jason Leitch warned he is "very concerned" at the situation. "We need to be very, very careful. Even though most of those cases will not get serious illness, some of them will and some of them will potentially spread it to the community."

 

Glasgow university tweeted that a mobile testing centre will be set up at Murano residence and students affected are being supported with food and other supplies.

 

Greg Fell, director of public health for Sheffield, told Times Radio: "Clearly there are going to be times when students do legitimately need to go home for all sorts of reasons. But the recommendation is to stay in place, basically."

 

The University and College Union said the UK Government must listen to the science, look at the experiences from other countries and tell universities to make online learning their default position immediately.

Yeah threatening them with isolation and not being allowed home for Christmas.

Yeah, there's no question there is dissent growing.

 

The worry is that the question is becoming "are the government handling the virus well?" not if there was no reason to lock everything down to begin with for a pretty non descript virus.

 

We could end up seeing Boris and co getting blamed and then an even bigger bunch of useful idiots trying to take more freedoms away but in a more popular way.

But whats the point of testing if too many false positives.

 

Whats the point?

 

They are looking at testing at venues to be allowed in? How the fuck would that work?

Just spoke to an elderly neighbour, whose favourite pastime is reading his Daily Record. He said he's fed-up with it all and hasn't been in Tesco for six months, to protect his invalid spouse, and it's getting worse. How so? I asked. The virus is increasing, he replied, because of students out partying, not obeying the rules and now they have a cheek to cry about their 'human rights! So, this must be the general consensus, as gleaned from Tabloids. A work colleague keeps reminding me that children don't get the virus, but can still pass it on. Wait...What?

I don't believe there has been any evidence of kids passing the virus to anyone, so that's a load of shite that's for sure.

Had a letter from PHE from our school.

 

It says to only get tested if they have symptoms.

 

I dont think many people are going with continuous cough, lack of smell taste and the other.

He also said recently when all the George Floyd stuff kicked off that he wouldn't take the knee. If he can survive for a bit in politics I'm hopeful he will be a sane voice in there. Maybe.

 

 I think you misunderstood my comment.

 

The Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab is part of the British Zionist Occupied Government.

 

He only admitted about the huge number of false positives yesterday i.e. ONLY 7% of the tests are successful in identifying those who have the virus, because

Julia Hartley-Brewer on LBC had exposed Matt Hancock and Grant Shapps this week, who pretend not to understand the maths behind the false positive rates.

It's damage limitation, but the story is HUGE.  Have the MSM put it out there? I very much doubt it.

Thailand is corrupt as fuck, people hate the king. They hate the PM. But the King orders him to stay.

 

I'm not too sure if he's still in germany living with loads of hookers.

 

I heard the rumour many many many years ago the royals use young blood.

 

Thailand have had lots of protests over the last few years.

 

I  think this one will be different- they revered the old king and absolutely hates this one.

Who knows will royalty fall in Thailand first? Waiting for some generals to seperate from the kings army then that will kick off

That's why its so important to connect with nature - they cant simulate that. Though theyre trying their best to with GMOs, chemtrails etc...you can see why theyre so desperate for everyone to have a chip inside them, to separate them from nature.

You're right I did misunderstand that. Why would he openly admit that? Why would he refuse to bend the knee and risk such wrath ? Maybe he's waking up? Maybe I'm just too soft. I'm aware there's lots still to learn.

 

Genuine questions and thoughts GR xx

I've wondered how they compiled there data on non compliance? Are people shopping themselves in?

 

How are they still not happy they got the majority of populace shitting themselves?

It's a bit like when they say ' there's 300,000 (pick a figure) illegal immigrants.'...HOW DO YOU KNOW IF THEY'RE ILLEGAL.??... THERES NO REGISTER OF THEM OR YOU'D HAVE CHUCKED THEM OUT.

New local rules will be in place for Llanelli from 6pm tomorrow.

Cardiff will follow, with local rules being introduced at 6pm Sunday.

Swansea will follow, with local rules being introduced at 6pm Sunday

 

 

Two of the biggest cities in Wales will go into local lockdowns from Sunday, with residents told they can’t leave the area ‘without a reasonable excuse’. Tough new rules are being brought in for Cardiff and Swansea after a surge in new coronavirus cases. From 6pm on Sunday, the Welsh Government has banned people from entering or leaving the two cities unless they have a valid reason. This could include shopping for essential goods or going to work but not pre-booked holidays. Residents will not be able to meet indoors with anyone they do not live with, including friends and family members who were part of their ‘extended household.’
