    Bah, we knew that yesterday!

    eight got a reaction from dgul in Every adult will be offered the vaccine by the autumn   
    I was being a bit dismissive, think it might have some short term benefit for the immediate future, after that the virus will present less of a threat generally.

    That comes much later and likely not before spring 2023 (you can email Emirates for verification)  
    The destruction of the cheap high density mass travel industry is not quite complete, i need more hotels boarded up and the staff tossed into the street, i need to read stories of unemployed airport security workers raging at their wives on a sunday afternoon because there is no food on the table, i need to see more............i need to see distressed property sales in and around Crawley. 
    I like this world now that the Black Swan has finally made an appearance.

    Whats that?
    UK has large number of competing supermarkets offering a range of cheap good value food.
    Chuck in a market and you are sorted.

    I was about to disagree, but actually I think you'll be proven right in the medium term (12 months).
    All the approved vaccines do reduce cases and symptoms.   My immediate concern is the risks of side effects to the non-vulnerable groups.
    But the virus will eventually mutate to get around the protection.  So the 'jab they're getting now' will stop being effective at some point.  What's more, I don't think they can do the same trick twice (in particular, the Oxford, J&J and Sputnik vaccine approach isn't readily usable a second time).
    We might be back at square 1 soon enough.
    [well, not quite 'square 1' because a high proportion of the non-vulnerable will have caught it already, will likely only have minor symptoms to the mutated form (because of how natural immunity works) and all without very many hospitalisations/deaths at all.  Those frontrunners will be the ones that end up slowing down future waves, not the vaccinated]

    I don't get how this fits with your plan to be able to travel serenely around the World in some kind of recreation of the 1900's Grand Tour, free of "scum" and children. As it is you've probably gone behind the vaccinated pensioners in terms of likelihood of travel, and if you do get anywhere you'll now have quarantine in a camp full of the same chavs you so despise. Still, winning!

    eight got a reaction from Option5 in What date will a UK covid vaccination program first be halted?   
    I've seen some fairly concerning stats regarding deaths directly attributable to the annual flu jab. I'd say if the Norway figures are correct then they're in a similar range.

    I've got a bit of a "mullett" situation going on at the moment thanks to COVID shutting all the barbers.
    Can't wait for the local workingmen's clubs to open again. A pair of cowboy boots and a checky shirt and I'll have the grannies all over me on Country and Western night...

    So someone with a prior high risk (cardiac problems,  previous cancer), gets the coof,  develops a high temperature (105oF he said? ) ... but decides to DRIVE FOR OVER 45 MINUTES TO TWO DIFFERENT HOSPITALS  .... sounds reasonable. 
     
    Staying home,  cold bath to reduce temperature,  paracetamol etc ....

    He got that handwritten card thing, which apparently he now has to carry with him "at all times".
    You'd like to think that there is some system side record being kept!

    You only have to look at the situation with the Australian Open to see how ridiculous the situation is. 
    Every precaution taken, make sure that everyone has a negative test within 72hrs of flying out and still get 4 positives on arrival. 
    If a vaccine doesn't stop you catching the virus or spreading it, then a vaccine passport is absolute bullshit.

    Thought I would copy this comment in full.

    It’s dawned on me that whatever happens, I will never get my old life back. 
    First and foremost, because a country in which the horrors we have seen are actually conceivable is not the country I thought I was living in. 
    Secondly, because for the rest of my life I shall know that these horrors can be inflicted again, at the drop of a hat. 
    Thirdly, because I have utterly lost faith in human nature. I didn’t realise that cowardice, stupidity and vindictiveness were its chief constituents.
    Fourthly, because pretty well every institution and human association that I consciously or unconsciously put any faith in has turned out to be stinking rotten. Worst of all, the church. Second worst, the Welsh nation. Somewhere far behind, venomous tiddlers like the National Trust. At the bottom, government. I never thought of myself as naïve where governments were concerned, but until this horror began, I vaguely considered that western democratic governments were rather benevolent than otherwise. I was not just naïve, but blind and bonkers. 
    Fifthly, because I am known to be a sceptic and a non-mask wearer and so a lot of local people hate me, and will continue to do so. 
    Sixthly, because it seems unlikely that any of the social activities I used to enjoy will ever resume. The belief that other people are walking sprayguns of Death has taken such a firm hold that it will never lapse, especially if we get annual lockdowns, as now seems likely. Even activities that can, to some extent, be pursued alone have lost their savour. For example, I spent years enthusiastically learning Welsh, because I thought it was the language of a proud and cultured nation. But now – why bother to engage with the language of a nation of cowards and dolts?
    Ah well. I’m in my mid-sixties. By the grace of God I have lived most of my life in what I was deluded enough to think was a free country. I’ve done most of the things that I wanted to do, and seen most of the things that I wanted to see. By the mercy of God, I have no children or grandchildren who will have to live for many years in this horrible new prison world. By the kindness of God and through undeserved good fortune, I still have a home and a partner and a dog and a horse. I am fortunate. 
    And it may be that the new life will have its compensations. Hard to believe, but you always have to rebuild something on the ruins. 
    Perhaps, even, life is still a great adventure. In any case, I still prefer it to death. And if my being still alive annoys people, that’s all to the good.
