    Makes sense. Not nice, but has to be done I think.

    Too little too late.

    The slogan of the Boris Johnson government.

    (Apart from the economic mitigation measures)

    UK is doing good mitigation.

    We've been absolutely clear: guided by the science, we've been ramping up common sense to make the right decisions at the right time.

    Indeed. Three months ago the scientists (nor you as far as I recall, quote yourself if you were) were not advising quarantine. For the last three months it was a case of the horse having already bolted, there've been no tourism arrivals due to lockdown, travel numbers are down by over 99% and the less than 1% still coming in are freight who will [quite rightly] be excluded from this proposal. As we're looking at easing lockdown now and travel numbers can start to pick up why wouldn't you introduce quarantine now?

    I haven't said we shouldn't do it now. I'm saying we should have done it much, much earlier to help stop the spread of the virus and take the damage to the airlines in one big hit. It's common sense.

  8. #1238
    Were you calling at the time for it to be done much, much earlier? Were the scientists?

    Or are you saying with the benefit of hindsight it would have been good to have done so? In hindsight it would have been good to do so.

    Yes, I was.

    We didn't "follow the science" when we went round shaking hands with people. We didn't "follow the science" when we devised the school reopening plan. I have no confidence that we've ever really "followed the science".

    If you believe Boris has followed the science throughout this, good for you. You'll be a happier, more content man than I and I'm genuinely happy for you. I however don't, because I don't trust a word that comes out of his mouth.

    Cummings should resign, as should anyone who has lied or actively misled the public on his behalf.

    I would like to see him shot into space without protection. But I don't know if he is government enough to say that. He seems to have broken the law though. So what's the punishment for that?
    Greece shows us that there is a kind of politician worse than the ones that break their election promises; the ones that keep their election promises.

    Based on the last couple of times he's broken the law, promotion.

    Not that he can be promoted any further. He's effectively running the country.

    But he's not going anywhere. Senior ministers out in force supporting him now. Not Boris though, obviously. That would require some work.

    Ultimately it is up to the doctor who prescribes the medicine who bears the responsibility.

    Your doctor is not a defense against the president's lack of judgement. If Trump starts spouting flat earth conspiracy theories on national TV, it shows that he lacks the basic judgement expected of a person of his station. The same is true of him spouting dangerous medical nonsense. What the president says matters, and only dumb fucking groypers believe otherwise.

    Note how Lewk doesn't place any of the burden or responsibility on the dumb fucks demanding the drug because the President told them they should.

    "Wow President says I should take this... man I need to get some. Oh shit I need an Rx let me talk to my doctor."

    Then the doctor chooses to write the Rx or not. That's the final step - people hear lots of shit on blogs, on facebook, on TV - it is up to the doctor to provide expert medical advice.

    The UK government has been played by the Mirror. Now reporting Cummings broke lockdown rules for a second time.

    Fascinating stuff. Hopefully the beginning of the end for them all.

    Actually, the final step is taking something which you don't need and can only potentially harm you, because you listen to an ass on TV who has no clue what he's talking about.

    Gary Lenius died due to Trump's advice without seeing a doctor. When you pander to a base that's so intellectually devoid as the conservatives you end up with a lot of people thinking that doctors don't have they best interest at heart.

    He might of actually be murdered... Anyway, that's like saying if the president told people to drink more water and then someone dies of hyponatremia it would be his fault.

    Also... lol

    "I’ll leave you with this, Wanda apparently told the Washington Free Beacon that she and her husband “weren’t big supporters” of Trump, revealing campaign finance records to show she has donated thousands to Democratic causes. What really is going on here then?"

    Posting this here so I can find it in case I need it later.
    Take the suffering and plague away now, let the madness become the truth, cause it's never too late for mercy when the red tides rise to you
    As power tends towards violent ends, I'll choose to give up nothing, cause it's too late to be the hero, and it's too late to see the truth
    I'm exempt of absolution
    But it's never too late for you

    Yes that's exactly like what the president is doing.

    How fucking stupid are you?
