Who’s scared? You? No one I know is scared. Sounds like the government is going to be proactive for a change so well done them. Pretty sure that the NHS has been overwhelmed for over a decade now, be nice if the government started being proactive about that for a change.
I think the median age is correct, but it's hardly a stat on which you can hang public health policy during a pandemic. The implication is that 80+ year-olds should just be hung out to dry - that's something like 2.5 million people in England.
Yes he is. It’s a basic misunderstanding of what life expectancy means.
Yes and let's not discount our current PM's role in this. It truly was appalling that they kept schools closed but opened pubs and encouraged people to eat out to spread the virus about. Allowing his mates to make money was more important than our children's education and welfare.The evidence being highlighted in the enquiry demonstrates the PM's lack of care and intelligence to grasp the scope of elements to be considered.
It seems to me that focus was on economy first, without realising that late lockdowns led to increased economic damage. Old people are dispensable ...they cost the country money for pensions and apart from buying the Daily Mail and voting Conservative they're of "no value".
PM's own personal agenda was write a book to pay for his divorce and running the country got in the way.
He's happy to use the median for this scenario, but wouldn't touch it with a bargepole for economics.Oh he’s also wrong about the stats. Median age is completely pointless in this scenario, fatality is higher among old people, this isn’t news.
So on both sides of the “get Covid and live longer” equation he’s incorrect.
I always remember it being said that Maggie Thatcher survived on 4 hours sleep a night because she was getting on with the job. Boris was surviving on 4 hours because he was sitting up in bed watching YouTube until the early hours. Like a petulant child.Sorry. If you’re PM you should not be consuming YouTube videos.
I'm just surprised it wasn't porn.I always remember it being said that Maggie Thatcher survived on 4 hours sleep a night because she was getting on with the job. Boris was surviving on 4 hours because he was sitting up in bed watching YouTube until the early hours. Like a petulant child.
