  1. Covid vaccine.

    "Have you got your papers?"
  2. Gyms allowed to re-open after lockdown

    Praying this wasn't a prank link when I clicked it. Cheers for the share! Great news!
  3. Covid vaccine.

    Get in line for your "Freedom Pass" guys. https://uk.yahoo.com/news/exclusive-two-covid-tests-week-164848634.html
  4. Covid vaccine.

    Damn. We're in danger of the facts getting in the way of the "Hallelujah - the vaccine will help bring back a normal life" narrative.
  5. Amount of cardio required to burn Visceral fat?

    Calories in vs calories out. You can lose weight with doing zero cardio. Calories in vs calories out - that's it.
  6. Signed up to the petition recently for the closure of gyms due to Covid.. I got an unexpected update today in my in-box "Parliament is going to debate the petition you signed – “Prevent gyms closing due to a spike in Covid 19 cases”. https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/333869 The debate is scheduled for 23 November 2020. Once the debate has happened, we’ll email you a video and transcript. Thanks, The Petitions team UK Government and Parliament" Can't say I'm expecting a great deal but at least it is being discussed and getting some attention.
  7. Covid vaccine.

    FORCED VACCINATIONS. For anyone who might think such conjecture is only to be found in the radical and outrageous parts of conspiracy and tin foil hat groups of Facebook and the dark web, maybe should take a look at what was being implemented in Denmark until 9 days of continuous and wide scale protests in Denmark forced a government U-turn. "A Danish law that would have allowed health authorities to forcibly inject people with a Covid-19 vaccine has reportedly been abandoned after more than a week of public protests. The proposed ‘epidemic law’ would have replaced an existing emergency law passed in the spring which gave the government sweeping powers to fight Covid-19, but protests lasting nine days have seen the radical measures which politicians hoped to make permanent shelved for now despite the emergence of two possible Covid-19 vaccines. With the assistance of police, the epidemic law would have allowed forced vaccinations of people from defined groups that refuse the vaccine, as well as forcible medical examinations and detention in isolation centres. “People who refuse the above can – in some situations – be coerced through physical detainment, with police allowed to assist.”
  8. Thank you, yes - I am doing that right now. Reading my MP's views on the lockdown I am incredibly pleased to see he is one of a few MP's who have had the courage to vote against a 2nd lockdown. His views are here, for anyone interested. ( No idea why anyone would be but I found it a decent read) https://www.chris-green.org.uk/news/covid-19-and-my-view He stepped down in his role as Parliament Private Secretary he feels that strongly about the whole situation. His thoughts echo many of my own and it is refreshing to see these being reiterated by an MP. So, yes, great suggestion - write to your MP! Extract from his article below. "During the peak of the pandemic, it was clear that Covid-19 was a killer and was causing a huge increase in deaths. Since then, even up until today, the death rate has been in line with what doctors would expect in a typical year. Everyone knows that respiratory illnesses increase with the onset of winter and the start of the school year. Whilst the Spanish Flu of 1918 attacked the young, Covid-19 targets the elderly, obese and those with other underlying health problems. The average age of death of a victim of Covid-19 is about 83 which is a year older than average life expectancy in the UK. So many months ago, when the first national lockdown was imposed, I supported the Government. Now, our understanding has changed. I voted against this second national lockdown and fear a third in the New Year because the cost of it is too high compared to the threat. Across England, tens of millions fewer GP appointments have been had, 4.7 million fewer hospital appointments have been attended and three million have not had cancer screening because of the lockdown. We do not yet know the details of the health impact these cancellations will have – it will be a number of years before we see the impact on cancer survival rates – but I do know that many people are already suffering and it is getting worse all the time. Over 50,000 more people now have an undiagnosed cancer. When and if it is discovered, will each patient have to undergo far harsher treatment or will it already be too late? Pregnant women have been denied the support of their husband or partner when going for scans and treatment. Dads-to-be have be denied the ability to give the support that they know their wife or partner needs. I have heard of dads-to-be waiting in cold car parks for days on end, not knowing what joy or worry awaits them, of women who have been told sorry, there is no heartbeat, alone in a hospital room. Where is the exit to this and what is the “new normal” for society? How much closer to rock bottom are we going to get before the Government offers us a way out. Despite the media excitement, the early crop of vaccinations do not promise to protect anyone from contracting the disease or prevent its onward transmission. Is submitting to the mass testing the entire UK population every week a way out when the Prime Minister has gone into two weeks isolation even though he has the antibody immunity from Covid-19 that recovery gives and has since had a negative test? Covid-19 is not the threat it was because we have learnt so much over the last nine months. It is not the threat the Government thinks it is as their terrifying projections fall apart under the lightest of objective scrutiny. Lockdown is doing for more damage than I could ever have imagined. Health services, education, employment and so much of what makes life worth living have been taken away from so many and we have no assurance of when the return will be permitted. The cycle of lockdowns has failed and the attempted cure is worse than the disease. The Government, who have been supported by the opposition every step of the way, has the opportunity to reset their approach to restore normality whilst ensuring that those who need protection continue to receive it. People do understand the real risks that Covid-19 presents so let us continue with high quality public information and encouragement to maintain those essential behaviour patterns that are key to reducing the spread of disease whilst allowing the majority to return to normal."
  9. Exactly. It did say the number when I signed it but can't recall. May as well make the most of the limited amount of due process available to us.
  10. When will we recover?

    This is true. America are seeing car queues miles long for free food at food banks. The furlough scheme is a positive when you look at how other countries have dealt with it. That being said, it was the govt who closed the businesses that put people out of work in the first place.
  11. Covid vaccine.

    All this talk of free speech and independent thought has gone way too far recently. We need to just sit down, shut the f**k up, and stay home, because Boris and the government knows what is good for us. Basically we just need to follow restrictions and do what we are told.
  12. 2nd National Lockdown soon?

    Data you won't get on the BBC. Warning - this video is on YouTube so must therefore be instantly dismissed as a load of unsubstantiated tosh. It might interest anyone else who could be more open minded.
  13. When will we recover?

  14. Trump doesnt want the votes counting

    No idea. That's what the market is pricing it at. Sky Bet also now offering 60% cash out on bets on Trump.
  15. Trump doesnt want the votes counting

    Trump odds of a win have come in from 28 to 11 on Betfair if anyone fancies a flutter.
  16. When will we recover?

    That's right. When all the naughty grown ups just do what they are told, they will be allowed out of detention and be able to carry on as they were...
  17. When will we recover?

    Chancellor announces move towards digital currencies.... For now a "complement to cash" Not sure what role, if any, these will play in our recovery but let's see....
  18. Trump doesnt want the votes counting

    Yep - somebody better let the WEF they are taking this tin foil hat meme nonsense a step too far.
  19. Trump doesnt want the votes counting

    Anyone who thinks we are going back to "normal" needs to look at what Klaus Schwab at the World Economic Forum and founder of Davos is saying These people have the ears of government, central banking and worldwide industry. Admittedly, us UK-M folk could have more insight into how the future of society will be shaped than these guys.
  20. 2nd National Lockdown soon?

    And here's the context. Shameful indictment on what society has become and what has seemingly become acceptable and justifiable.
  21. Gym owner arrested in Essex for opening gym

    Jeez. I wonder how many of those coppers had this scenario in mind when asked "So, why do you want to join the force?" all those years ago I have no idea how they go home at night and look their wife and kids in the eye, and managed to feel some pride in how they have spent their day or what BS they tell themselves to justify it. And yes, before anyone says it I do appreciate "They are just doing their job" or what ever else.
  22. 2nd National Lockdown soon?
