I had less issue with 2nd dose of AZ than 1st as is borne up by other evidence, tends to be reverse with Pfizer.

Re: Coronavirus

I don't get what the issue is, we've been locked up for eighteen months, two more weeks just to be certain we don't have to endure it again is very sensible imo

Re: Coronavirus

You get less than 18 months for manslaughter

can we at least go before the parole board on this one?

Speak for yourself, for me it's been horrific, not been able to sit in the same room as my partner because of her cancer, saw my children once in 14 months because they'd never hear the end of it if I'd infected them and their grandparents in law died, three people dead at work and another on a ventilator for months who might never be the same again plus no furlough for key workers, in fact I've done more hours to make up for the death but although it sounds like I'm complaining I'm not, it was worth it if those closest get through it unscathed and if it takes a couple more weeks so be it imo

Is it worth going before the beak for two weeks, they might decide you were dealt with to lenient and increase the sentence

My meaning was that we haven't been sealed up in buildings like some in China were, we didn't require a written permit to be out of our house like in France.

Lockdown was/is incredibly arduous & painful for many, however, it's been even more arduous for some in other countries.

Perhaps that's a better way to phrase it.

Looks to me like it's the same people that were constantly bleating about Brexit extensions . . some of us had enough of those too

And then in a couple of weeks itíll be, letís just give it a couple of weeks, then another month has gone. Then variant Epsilon turns up, oh we donít know this one, best give it a couple weeks.....after all whatís a couple of weeks?

The government should have enough data on hospitalization and deaths to make an informed decision we shouldnít have to wait and see.

Either the vaccine programme is working or it isnít, donít tell me weíre leading the world in vaccinating people but still need to lock down, donít tell me weíre vaccinating millions and itís a great success but we still have to have tests before events and tests after events.

Donít piss on my leg and tell me itís raining.

If there is solid verifiable evidence to not open up in two weeks fine, otherwise open up.

Exactly right. Itís hospitalisations that are important. The number of infections is increasingly irrelevant.

Whatís the point of vaccinating the population if you still cling to lockdowns?

I am convinced that the PM will stick to the 21 June deadline. It is absolutely the right decision. Q

Re: Coronavirus

I fully expect it to be UK "Independance Day" again.

(Well technically, it will be the 5th July this year, not the 4th).
