They only went and done it.....

.......yup they only went and started the process at Westminster last night of breaking international law and creating the very real possibility of a hard border in Ireland, unreal as if times are not bad enough at the moment Boris and his cohorts might actually destroy the Good Friday agreement and break international law for their own nefarious wants and desires.

Please oh please let the MPs on all sides grow some spines and do something about this Tories included.

Apologies, I was totally wrong. What you said was 'even if they get 1 million tests a day that'll be a huge shift' and indeed it would.

However, that would mean they were chieving only 10% of target and at an estimated cost of £100 billion . More spurious nonsense from a government that has, over the past few months, specialised in u-turns, fantasy and failures.
----------------------------------------------------------------------



No worries. We all get caught up during these times.

As to the 100m tests a day? Wonderful.
Can I see it happen? Not a chance.
Would I be happy seeing us spend £100bn on trying? Absolutely not. Ridiculous.

My single and uppermost gripe in all of this is that not one U.K. government is even remotely planning to live with this thing. It’s panic stations at every twist and turn making legislation convoluted, exasperating, confusing and misleading in equal measure.

Gone are the not too distant days of flattening the curve. It’s now avoid at any cost and will it have gone when we next pop our heads up from behind whatever bomb shelter we’ve made for ourselves? No it won’t. So it’ll be stop - go - stop again.

Utterly clueless the lot of them. No foresight whatsoever. First but of sense I’ve heard from anyone was from the Irish government in stating they were starting on a plan to accept this virus and learn to live with it. Thankfully some sense at last. And now they’re all self isolating. What does that tell us? I’m sure they’ll all have obeyed the advice yet everyone is still vulnerable.

And today now we see Scotland starting to question the figures which suggest we’ve lost 2,600 additional deaths due to other causes as a result of our actions. We are walking open eyed into a remedy that will kill and destroy more for many years to come.

Anyway. Rant over. Nothing will change. They are all as bad as each other.

👍cheers👍

Now, and it is not a trap, how do you suggest we best live with this virus?

P.S The 'target's stated was 10 million a day, not 100 million.

While you're thinking about that a mate tells me there has been a new development in the testing regime. Apparently they are now going to test everyone. And it's simple, all you have to do send a stool sample to 10 Downing St, Westminister, London.

The UK population is estimated to be around 67m. Why on earth would 10m tests a day be required in the first place.

Which would equate to the entire UK population being tested once a week.

It's akin to a newspaper with a readership of 100k per week printing 700k copies.

For the cost they'd be as well downloading our consciousness online into a virtual reality that is covid free and still have money left over to scrap universal credit

It’s toxic, causing arguments, costing a fortune, stops you enjoying life and we just have to live with it.




But enough about the wife...!

Pleased to hear it.

But this is symptomatic of the ongoing mayhem this testing along with false negatives etc is causing.

Absolute chaos.

One simple thing. If you don't show the symptoms, don't demand a test.

Agreed.

I have no idea how the guy has landed in the position he has. You would not have him in charge of a litter of puppies. Minister for health in the middle of a global pandemic.. Shambles.
