Not saying it was but people didn't want lockdown so he tried herd immunity on the advice of his advisors, like 2 weeks later they l oked down as people were complaining about cases deaths ect, my point is you can't please everybody especially in todays day of age.
Exactly. Advisors. Not experts. People who are there for political reasons, not the science.

Just had an email from my sons primary school - 2 cases of confirmed COV-ID in different bubbles, given the way they have set up with staff they have to now get too many staff to self-isolate so they have to close until 2nd Nov

Does that affect you working, and therefore your classes?
Yeah, the primary school don’t even have enough staff to be able to open to vulnerable/key workers.
My wife and I are both teachers, so just worked out how we’ll split the week. 2 days out, 2 days in each - haven’t sorted the last day of the week yet. Maybe Johnson will come to the rescue and close them all by then.. safe to say I’ll be making contingency plans.

My youngest is off for another fucking 2 weeks..........such a dumb & damaging system.

The bubbles are virtually pointless....siblings still in school, parents still working, the virus is rife in the school & the local community so whats the fucking point exactly?

Just isolate symptomatic kids who test positive & keep the schools open, or close them down completely until xmas....but this fucking okey-cokey approach is ludicrous.

You know he won’t. Our profession matters the least to him

Wales following Northern Ireland into lockdown. Odds on Scotland doing the same and Johnson being left the odd one out again?

Avon Valley in Rugby now closing because of too many cases.

If this is a trend that's starting up, may as well formalise it around the country!

Donated in exchange for nationwide advertising from a trusted source. Which would’ve cost millions to purchase on the open market.
To be fair the zoe app is a privately created and maintained app. It's not run by any public bodies so while distasteful I can't see what is wrong there? Apart from silk is a poor material for a mask.

It’s changed it’s no longer as strong it only affects those who are already dead etc etc etc
Hmmm.I did wonder about putting something similar, but it did seem in poor taste really.

That said, FFS can't we just acknowledge experts are there because of actual training, internet conspiracists are there because they're nutters.

173 per 100k in cov adn yet we are tier 1. They must be looking at the demographics of cases as the heat map still indicates the vast majority of cov cases are students.

You fucking moron, what's the difference between a 82 year old vs a 22 year old? Both human only difference is is one has been the back bond of the country for 60 years and the other is the future. Selfish prick.

And we have the same Strain of the virus as we have had for months, the same one that mutated Italy before it, since then there's only been one major mutation and all it does is effects a different part of the cell, still as deadly.

His is a tongue in cheek comment I think, he's just reflecting some of the posts on here from back in the summer.
