I hate to butt in but I have seen people shaking with fear because they don't like needles and yet they turned up. Doing something you are scared of is a form of bravery.

It's an irrational fear perhaps but in that particular context I can concur.

ASCPFC is being vaccinated so that he can travel to a couple of Palace games next season. Now THAT'S bravery for you!

 


Palace since 19 August 1972. Palace 1 (Tony Taylor) Liverpool 1 (Emlyn Hughes)

I don't really see a conflict here.

I don't believe that people should be forced to have the vaccine, but I certainly think that they are unwise not to, especially if they are not young and fit.

I have had my two jabs as has my wife even though we had Covid last year.

Am I completely convinced about the safety of the vaccine?
That is not really possible.

Do I think the balance of benefit to risk favours the vaccines? Yes.
Will there be resentment toward those who don't get inoculated? Inevitably.

I very much suspect that 'Freedom Day' will be pushed back from 21 June after "Glum" and Glummer" AKA Vallance and Whitty have put the frighteners on politicians in thrall to doom-mongers.

If it's pushed back a further 2 weeks I don't have a problem with that. Small beer in the scheme of things.

After 2 weeks they will find more reasons to delay by another 2 weeks !

Infections are rising they will bellow ! Yes, this was expected but the vaccines are working with deaths and hospital admissions greatly reduced.
Mr Hancock has said himself that vaccines have 'broken the chain' between infections and serious illness.

The goalposts are being moved and the doom-mongers will forever find reasons to continue with restrictions.

The delay should only relate to ensuring that all adults have been offered the jab. After that I agree with you.

I am in agreement with Daniel Hannan who wrote :

"When the roadmap was agreed, Sage published various predictions. It offered a range of five different scenarios for how many people would be in hospital by now, depending on what policies were followed and how the virus behaved. The actual number, as I write, is lower than any of the five forecasts. Since the sole justification for the restrictions was to prevent the NHS being overwhelmed, that is the measure that matters. If we abandon the timetable on the basis that some unexpectedly bad thing might happen in the future then, by definition, we are giving up on ever reopening."

I didn't even cry when that nasty young, blonde, slim, female doctor injected me.

 


I used to put the manager's name in front of Red and Blue but got fed up with changing it. If someone cool becomes our manager then maybe..

My missus was told today that the salon she was using is permanently closing down.
