I'd say Leo is incorrect about the first part but correct about the second part. From what i've seen the government has never had a plan or even an idea how to solve that problem. If they did then we could eradicate Covid entirely on the island, but it'd probably involve doing politics and they're not qualified : /
i am confused. is he ending direct provision?

Incidentally..I usually get a few chest infections every year and I've had none in 12 months..not a fucking sniffle. I feel fucking great! First year thats ever happened.
Same here. Bar 1 or 2 days where I thought I might be picking up a dose, I've never been healthier.

And while we're on the subject, I was chatting with one of my old neighbours who's a primary school teacher. He said he's normally been to the doctor about 7 or 8 times by December of a regular school year with different doses and he hasn't been once yet. The guy's really big into his running and the doctors always said he was training too hard and it was running down his immune system. He told me he's training harder than ever right now, and I've seen it myself in our local park, and he hasn't been sick once. He's putting it down to him and the kids in his class washing their hands properly for once.

Just watching Prime Time and they're talking about the possibility of closing the borders/quarantining and what impact that would have economically, and the government dick they have on says "Well the primary impact would be on the tourism industry"

To which I'm like "WHAT FUCKING FUCKS ARE GOING ON HOLIDAYS IN THE MIDDLE OF THIS SHIT??"

The same measures that prevent covid spread reduce incidence of other similarly spread diseases. There’s no ‘seasonal flu’ this year.

think of the transmission risk posed by a packed bus - people working from home has a much to do with it as kids in schools

True that, as well people aren't obligated to go into an office or feel obligated to go out socialising when they've a dose on them like they did in previous years

Context is important. You don't really know what's going on with whoever it is. Also, glass houses etc.
By and large though I would say it's civic duty.


On that note though, back in December herself decided that one of our friends could be in our "bubble" so she came round. She lives alone, she's lonely etc. so I said fair enough.

Later we found out she spent xmas day at another friends house. We let that slide as it was xmas day.
Then we found out she spent new years eve at another friends house. Those people had tested positive and were isolating, and she went there anyway for wines and lines.
Last week she texts the missus wanting to hang out. A polite but firm "no" was the response from us. I feel like reporting her, but that would probably make her want to do even more stupid shit.

It’s a business. A clothing design company. About 10 - 15 people in their 20s/30s in every day. They also have piss ups on a Friday.

Oh those guys you mentioned them before.

I looked at their website actually. Report them. Hipsterism is the most contagious of all diseases, you should protect yourself from gaudy overpriced shite.
