Yi don't have the power to make you intelligent. 

OK OK one reply to that post with an insult was surely enough! I took the first one with no argument as I'm taking this one and not disagreeing but come on 😂. (Deserved I know)

I think on a music festival message board it’s a legitimate question to ask. It doesn’t suggest the OP doesn’t give a shit about anything else. Of course there are much bigger things to be worrie

So...OX/AZ, blood clots, suspension of vaccinations, politics, vaccine hesitancy, convoluted data, PR problems, Brexit, EU procurement naivety, poor logistics, national identity...there’s an awful lot

A while since I/we posted because just like everyone else we get fed up of this shit. So just like to say..... For the first time since last March we are free of covid patients 😊

For those interested in what’s going on in Chile (had great vaccine roll out but have still hit a third wave:

So maybe the main problem is them using the CoronaVac (as well as Pfizer), as it only has a 50% efficacy rate for preventing mild to severe cases

It also talks of a slower route map to opening being a better option .... sort of like what we are doing really !!

Improve what you post and improve this thread.

That's definitely less insulting and more practical! More likely less posting would be best though...

And I've got to say I admire the lack of usage of your admin powers on this thread, would be so easy to do!

As much as I strongly disagree with some of the elements of discussion on here .... if this thread were one sided we wouldn’t be well over 3000 pages now ... discussion keeps the thread going ... even if sometimes people might get a little too heated and need to respect others a little more ...

Nerds are at it again.

I don’t think the politics or the people will go for more of the same beyond June 21st.  Just reading around various forums of differing demographics the vast majority say thing have to be way better come June.

Boris will be toast if he sides with Whitty and Valance beyond June

Morale well and truly battered from today’s events re vaccine passports, SAGE modelling, Chile etc. Back to feeling no real end in sight again even if things do improve soon.

I can't say mine is because what we have is what is expected. I've not allowed myself to be like, oh from May 17th or June 21st etc because I take them with caution and the vaccination process is vastly slowing down with one stopped atm bar 2nd does. I've never believed bar this April one that they were realistic dates. The international travel easing will be a slow process and dictated upon how well the said countries are to whether we can enter or not. There are few few countries close to us in Europe that are doing well and will be at point of travel by May 17th. Portugal are doing about the best of them all but France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands and Belgium there is no chance. June is very unlikely for some of those too. Outside of them some places the UK visits a lot are doing very bad.

(Please take this in the fun way that it is intended)

This is like a game of efestivals blankety blank.

My guess is that you're saying "don't go praising the ignorant Ford driving chap, he's been playing Sting".

Well the news this morning certainly has a negative tone to it.

It seems that just when we get a whiff of normality it gets kicked further down the road. We were promised everything would be driven by data, data we all have access to, data which clearly shows we aren’t on course to a SAGE doomsday scenario yet we are suckerpunced by vaccine passports amongst other things which suggest otherwise.

With that in mind please do reach out if you are struggling with your mental health during this period.

The government and those advising them are showing scant regard for this but there is plenty of help out there, don’t be afraid to take the first step.

Yep, that completely passed me by (I was working 6-7 day weeks back in November and December so only really kept up with the guardians covid live thing) - thanks for bringing my attention to it!

Weirdly I'd done a lot of reading on Ethiopia just before covid broke out as I'd found out some of my dad's family were from the Northern region (ironically the very spot that's in civil war)

I hope any family you may still have in that region are safe! The highlands of Ethiopia have always appealed as the peoples and wildlife and scenery all look fascinating. I love Africa and hopefully next step for me, because of charity connections, is Uganda.

Boris put that June date out there and the vast majority of people aren’t following all of this as closely as us on here. They think it will end on the 21st - and I can’t see the government stopping them doing what they want from that date onwards.

Zahawi on BBC News now. No certification for next week or May’s indoor hospitality visits.

Just confirming testing for large-scale events blah blah blah.

Yup. The doom mongering nerds trying to keep us muzzled and 2 metres apart from family members probably need get out of their labs and into the real world more.

Did someone (maybe even you?) put on here a few of the scientists are concerned their time in the spotlight is about to fade and they know bad news sells?

I hope things continue to open up and the ‘cautious but irreversible’ roadmap continues to be just that.
