    Ah really? You can nearly hear most of you bristle with excitement every time a good few "Europeans" die. It's all mixed in with Brexit and all that guff, but as I said it's absolutely fascinating to an outsider to witness. Also oddly admirable with a bit of pity thrown in, but mostly the former. You're absolutely batshit as a country now and it's going to be class to see where you go.

    No one in England gives a shit about the empire. What peoples of the former empire (there is a huge amount of this on the subcontinent as well as Ireland) always forget when they put forward this idea that we're all lusting after the empire is that we never experienced the empire. That was you alone, and unfortunately that makes it entirely your problem how you want to deal with it now.

    Nah that old chestnut doesn’t wash any more but routinely trotting it out again shows one of the main cores of the problem; the complete inability to look inward. During all this you’ve become completely toxic as a people. And lets be honest you were never starting from a high bar to begin with.

    Could this Omicron variant actually turn out to be the end of this bullshittery?

    Coronavirus mutations usually tend to make it good at one thing and one thing only?

    So if that's the case if it's really good at spreading around the globe but crap at killing us then we will all have a mild illness and herd immunity will finally be on the cards.

    Sound logic, but we've gone well past the point where logic is being applied. Delta should have seen the end of the nonsense really and let's not forget a fuckton of chancer scientists were warning of armageddon if we opened up five months ago. That didn't happen (which should have seen the end of most of the FEAR of this thing without a fucking good reason), yet here we are again.

    Just been chatting with my Sister and she told me that they're testing all secondary school kids (bar those that have had COVID) with LFT in January before there'll let them back in school, meaning school starts five days later to manage this shitshow.

    You hear that and there really is no other explanation I can think of beyond people making an absolute killing from it.

    I don't understand how that means school has to start 5 days later. It's literally a 10 minute self-administered thing. Do they have to individually supervise every kid doing it? All of my kids are testing daily with LFTs before school as they are repeatedly being pinged as contacts of other cases [in their classes] as they roll in, and the roll is considerable at the moment. I'm starting to think we must all have had it at some point [one has for certain].

    Apparently the school is doing it, parents aren't allowed to. My nephew gets to go in only 3 days later without being tested as he's just had it.

    Asked if the UK was closer to the start of the pandemic than the end, Prof Paul Hunter tells BBC Breakfast he "wouldn't necessarily agree totally with that".

    "I think this virus is around [and] going to be around forever," he says.

    "The last time we had a big coronavirus outbreak we think was 130 years ago and that virus is still circulating, we get infected with it fairly regularly, every three to six years, and it basically just causes the common cold.

    "That is likely the way that this pandemic is going, so we will be repeatedly infected with Covid, we will be repeatedly infected with new variants but by and large, they'll just be another cause of the common cold."

    When asked about Christmas, he says there are actually fewer interactions between people over the festive break than during the working week, so he does not think family gatherings are "under threat".

    And on stopping future variants, Hunter says we must make sure every vulnerable person around the world is vaccinated, but this “hasn’t happened to any great degree”.
    Finally someone whose head hasn't gone.

    My best mate has fully gone down the rabbit hole. Fully onboard with the idea that our government is trying to control us. He was posting a link of some random undertaker saying the bodies he was seeing were looking unusual. The undertaker's name? John O'Looney.

    Amazing to me that noted best buddies the UK, US, EU, Russia, China, etc. are all doing the same thing (lockdowns, vaccinations) but people really think this is planned or some sort of global effort.

    If we get a variant which is much less virulent (my understanding is early signs look like omicron might be less virulent), I wonder if it would be better to let it spread and become the dominant strain. I have no idea but it's an interesting thought. I'll ask someone who knows about viruses when I'm next at work and report back.

    Sorry to leave you all in such suspense.

    I'd be willing to bet decent money that we'll never let a variant run wild, there are too many feeding from the trough now to do that.

    Just to recap:

    Kent variant - Found in September 2020. Spread like wildfire. Dominant strain. The wave it triggered lasted til December-ish 2020.
    Delta variant - Hit whilst Kent was still doing it's thing. Wave lasted until February 2021. Dominant strain. Still dominant and pumping cases out at present.

    We've done nothing but let variants run wild. If Omicron overhauls Delta, so be it. We've got vaccines and the majority of the populus is not starting from 0 with regards to immunity.

    I was assuming RL meant not bother testing and maybe not even bother boosting. I'm sure he'll correct me if I was wrong.

    If there's a variant that is transmissible but not severe, then it might well be worth taking some short term pain for long term gain. Obviously no one in decision-making positions will ever see it that way, as they are short-term beasts.

    If you can think of another and better reason why we still have utterly bonkers restrictions and pointless testing in place the World over, neither of which are showing any signs of stopping, after the most successful vaccine rollout in all of human history, then I'm all ears.

    There has to be a reason for this continued nonsense, money is the go to answer for everything else, why wouldn't it be with this?

    It's shame South Africa's a former Dutch colony rather than a British one. It's definitely taking off over there like Delta did with us.

    Well it will do, pandemic's gonna pandemic.

    Maybe, just maybe, the SCIENCE that can never be questioned should consider vaccinating much more of the 2nd and 3rd World before boosting young people and 2nd jabbing actual children here. Money's not a driving force for this, so we can just give it to them, right?

    Pre-2020 these sorts of people were regularly pushing absolutely demented shit like treating vaping like smoking and degrading the food supply. It's just that nobody noticed until suddenly everywhere serves crappy Coke Zero to save on sugar taxes.

    Disappointed in Burkeman there. No one needs to eat on a short haul flight or in a pub for that matter, therefore all forms of eating and drinking on shorter flights and all of hospitality should be banned.

    This whole debacle has given SCIENCE a much louder voice than it should sadly ever have. Can you imagine what life would be like if these utter nutters were in actual power?

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trisha_Greenhalgh Doesn't look like the CV of someone who deals in sarcasm.

    It's funny how I'm supposedly the mad one for saying these people are dangerous, but there it is, someone with nearly forty years of professional experience in science, suggesting we need behavioural change to not talk while we eat in public.
