Well. What can we say. A commission long in working about boundary changes for Westminister MPs.

https://nation.cymru/news/website-leaks-wales-boundary-changes-a-day-early-as-number-of-welsh-mps-cut-by-eight-to-32/

England gains 10 MP seats at Westminister from this shake up.

8 from Wales, 2 from Scotland.

NI, No change. Thats of note I guess.

Seems to be primarily based on population although geographical features accounted for.

Still not all is lost for Cardiff.

They still have control of the taps.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-44966131.amp

And for those with short memories.

Here is what those gimps said back at Westminister a year ago. Yep. The exact opposite.

https://nation.cymru/news/plans-to-cut-number-of-welsh-mps-from-40-to-29-abandoned-by-uk-government/

I wondered if Starmer had been bought given the limp approach this last period. Pretty sure Lord Starmer has.

Fairly sure the first ministers of Wales and Scotland have been bought to (posted on the Krankie thread earlier). Fiefdoms or something.

Corrupt. The state of these cuntries.

The scrapped plan would have had reductions across the board:

Proposals published in 2018 by the independent Boundary Commission recommended scrapping 32 seats in England, six in Scotland, 11 in Wales and one in Northern Ireland.

The new plan appears to be about making the system more balanced (which in theory should lead to better government, at least if you believe that one-man-one-vote is better than some-men-more-votes).

BBC Wales News has Drakeford explaining very high rates in all communities are going to get worse according to latest modelling.

Thanks to our fantastic vaccination programme, this Winter, we are likely to see an overwhelmed NHS with exhausted staff.

If we can, we should consider using a pharmacy or contacting our GP.

Still, thousands of people have not been vaccinated. Placing themselves and others at risk.

Children to be vaccinated, and boosters for those vaccinated over 8 months ago, asap following expected JCVI announcement.

Open a window.

Wear your mask.

Get your jabs !

BBC News Wales, at the Drakeford press conference this morning, two further points.

Vaccine Certification aka Vaccine Passports are being considered for places where people gather voluntarily.

Rather than places of work, public transport, and similar.

Drakeford confirmed parent(s) who test positive or have covid symptoms should send their child to school.

Most places where people gather voluntarily are also people's places of work.

He's so anti-alcohol, pubs could be on his list. The problem is that even though customers go to them voluntarily, they are a place of work for the staff. Not enough customers = no job.

Every person does - unless they are a slave.

I would definitely class an office building in London as a place where people gather voluntarily.

Im not sure I would. The term “wage slave” was invented for a reason.

I love this kind of crazy stuff the most.  Covid can't get you unless you are enjoying yourself.  Drakeford definitely is the gift that keeps on giving.  I am genuinely staggered that they get away with this level of mentalness.

For future reference to see if the % jabbed is reduced later, like it seems to be in Israel because the case numbers include so many double jabbed:

The 10 areas of Wales with Covid infection rates of more than 1,000

OMG.... be afraid be very very afraid!!

Maybe not.....

Quote

It is important to bear in mind that this data is very volatile complete scare mongering bullshit because it covers smaller areas. Where an area has a very small population even one positive case can push up the cases per 100,000 significantly. You should therefore be cautious about drawing too many conclusions directly from the information.

For lockdowns.

Spot the missing word when talking about covid? They are quick to mention "unvaccinated" deaths but if they are largely from jabbed people they don't do a breakdown! The one to keep an eye on:

Wales' top doctors Frank Atherton and Rob Orford give an update on Covid and what to expect this winter

The Senedd's health committee heard from Wales' chief medical officer, Dr Frank Atherton, among others as Covid infection rates rise across the country once more

While the doctors were speaking, the Welsh Government published new NHS performance figures for August which make for pretty grim reading:

  • Accident and emergency departments recorded their worst-ever performance figures, with just 68.7% of patients spending less than four hours before being admitted, transferred or discharged. This was down from 69.8% in July which was itself a record. The target is 95%
  • Some 7,982 people had to wait more than 12 hours in an A&E department - up from 7,084 the month before and the highest number ever recorded
  • The Welsh Ambulance Service's response times to its "red" priority calls were the second worst on record. Only 57.6% of these immediately life-threatening calls arrived on scene within eight minutes. The target of 65% has not been met for over a year.
  • A whopping 643,108 people (20% of the population) are now on an NHS Wales waiting list - the most on record
  • The number of patients waiting more than 36 weeks (nine months) to start treatment in hospital have grown from 25,634 in February 2020 to 239,195. That's an increase of 833%
Quote

Most 12 to 15-year-olds will get the jab at a mass vaccination centre

Dr Atherton said established mass vaccination centres will do the bulk of Covid vaccines for 12 to 15-year-olds, but some schools will also be involved.

He said he was confident that Wales could not only provide these vaccines, but also carry out the booster doses for more vulnerable people and the annual flu jabs.

"The people working in these vaccination programmes are not working elsewhere in the healthcare system and so it does lead to some knock-on consequences in terms of healthcare provision," he admitted.

"The vaccines are still working, they're still protecting us. If they weren't we'd be seeing a lot more problems in our hospital sector. But we, we take the JCVI advice very seriously and now is the time to embark on a booster programme."

Vaccine hesitancy among ethnic minority groups and pregnant women

Dr Atherton said anybody who is not vaccinated is now at "significant risk" of catching Covid-19 because of the high infection rates and the number of people mixing.

He said there were some areas of the population where vaccine hesitancy was higher, including in some minority ethnic groups.

"We've been monitoring very closely the disparity both on socioeconomic grounds in a black, Asian minority ethnic communities and the gap in vaccination status. We've had a monitoring group looking at this and coming up with suggestions as to how we can address that.

"And the good news for me is that the gaps that we have seen vaccination coverage rate has been declining over time."

He said vaccine hesitancy wasn't a major issue in Wales when compared with many other countries.

Fliss Bennee also shone a light on vaccine hesitancy and added: "The issue really is that there is a great deal of disenfranchisement that's occurred as a result of Covid and the restrictions that have occurred not just in Wales, but across the world, and the fear and the anger that that drives can lead people to be much more open to anti vax conspiracy theories.

"It's absolutely imperative that when we look at hesitancy and anti-vaccination campaigns that we counter them not just with reason but also with empathy.

"It's important that we work with trusted community partners to build up people's understanding as well as encouraging them to come and get vaccinated."

Dr Atherton also said he was particularly concerned about the lack of pregnant women coming forward for the jab.

Uncertainty about the modelling for the months ahead

Dr Orford admitted there were uncertainties in the Covid-19 modelling.

"Some of the uncertainties that we have are things like the emergence of new novel variants, whether they're transmitted faster or whether they impact on the immune system," he said.

"We are uncertain about the impact of seasonality and what happens when it gets colder, and we're uncertain about co-infections - like what happens with flu plus Covid occur in Wales - and so the dynamics are highly unpredictable."

He said there was likely to still be another rise in infections following by a levelling off, but he didn't give any precise timescale on when that pattern would occur.

He added: "The reemergence of childhood diseases, RSV for example, could put a spanner in the works. And again, we may have built up some 'immunity debt' in the system where children have been not mixing with friends and so they may be more susceptible to some of the illnesses that we traditionally see.

"So I think it's something that we need to stay really close to."

Something very, very wrong there -- and I'm not just talking about lack of resources for the NHS.

One in five people have sufficiently serious health problems that they need to go through some formal hospital process.

And the population ain't getting any healthier, they're not even being encouraged to do so. How long before it's four in five?

Suicide? Sudden brain haemorrhage? Cancer or some other terminal illness she kept private? Vax reaction?

Very young and looks fit and healthy in pics in the article. Keep us posted if you spot any more news about cause of death.

I agree. Not only that but lots of Cymru presenters and Welsh nat politicians are tweeting condolences but again no hint of the cause of death. If it was cancer you would suspect it to be mentioned. Or talk of a long battle. It could be anything as you say. 44. Poor lass.
