The thing that will make me really happy is when 3d modelling is good enough to do away with actors completely.

I think we are nearly across the uncanny valley judging by computer games.

The sanctimonious gits deserve to be consigned to history

Already there to an extent.

Hire a body double and just deepfake the face on.

Check out Tom Selleck as Indiana Jones:

Can we then make all the celebs become unpersons?

I recall reading about this possibility years ago, but the theory was that artificial characters would not catch on because the off-screen gossip, romances etc is as much a part of Hollywood as the films themselves.

Well that's easily sorted, just write the stories and have the CGI characters act it out. We're pretty much there.

the Government has borrowed £208.5bn in the first six months of this financial year, amounting to £50bn more than the deficit for the entire worst year of the financial crisis

They are doing a “Samson Option” on the economy now - we will be begging for the NWO global currency by 2022.

Looking at that,  Putin and China must be hoping we keep this up for at least another year..  once we’re bankrupt our currency will be junk and they can by up all our national assets.

I’m surprised there aren’t Chinese and Russian agitators posting on forums and social media encouraging much stronger and more costly lockdown measures..

Slight edit for you.

So if she wanders around spreading it to other people .... ?

One can only hope that she suffers the full consequences of her stupidity. At least then there will be one less idiot.

I don’t see how she is an idiot at all. Christ I would hate to see what you would do in a real crisis.

This.

The 83 yr old lady will just remember the end of WW II.

She grew up surrounded by people who had lived and fought  through it.

Those people understood hardship, danger and fear. They would be turning in their graves if they could see todays reaction to a virus that almost exclusively kills the old and the vulnerable.

As a society we have lost all sense of proportion.

The old lady hits the nail perfectly on the head, the young are the people who will suffer from the economic & emotional effects of all this bullshit, and they will be the people paying for it for years to come.

By the time that the costs are truly understood, the people we are currently destroying our economy to protect will be dead anyway; the only question is what will they die of, Covid-19 or just old age....not that it matters.

Our current system does however mean that the hospitals and NHS will be full up with old age patients dying of covid instead of at home. I think this is what governs policy. Whether the virus kills the old or vulnerable or not, the system will never say, you're over 70, you don't get admitted for treatment. This is what's governing policy. Whether the virus is fake or not. If hospitals are in chaos they Will lockdown again this winter. And unfortunately IMO that is highly likely, it will be when the hospitals fill up.

I read a theory online (not sure if it was here) that the main reason for lockdowns etc is because the government is afraid there will be so many nurses (ie, fat ones) and doctors staying at home with Covids that the system will collapse.

I think it's a good theory, but if it's true, we have had months and months to prepare and yet bugger all has been done.

A surgery in Wales told the vulnerable to stay at home and die
