Personal responsibility for your own health and safety comes into play.

If you feel that vulnerable then its a fair enough suggestion that you should probably avoid crowded indoor spaces.  

I fundamentally disagree with your selfish view point.  Your health and well being is largely not my responsibility.  I should be able to largely do as I please.  You and others have to make your own choices on what level of risk you want to entertain.

We are taking personal responsibility.  And a large degree of social responsibility.  Caring for others rather than the more selfish point of view.

Other than that, I’m not biting.

I don't care about others.  But I expect a certain level of personal responsibility from others as well.  

Don't go in the water if you can't swim style thinking.  Rather than close all the pools or make everyone wear arm bands just in case you are stupid enough to go for that swim.

Trouble is “relatively” isn’t good enough when there is a 26% chance that the vaccine won’t work for you (using your figures).

Where does that link mention 26% ?

What is everyone most looking forward to?

 

Ordering a pint at the bar?

 

Not having to keep a 1m distance?

 

Meeting up with > 5 friends at a time? 

Going to a theme park without having to wear a mask on rides.

I hate to say it but they probably did the right thing stalling to let events cancel from a public health perspective. From a leadership perspective they should've just said no mass events this summer. I don't think gatherings will be lasting long!

Don’t think it’s me that’s lacking the understanding.

I think it is. And you lack the understanding of your own posts.... you literally just said there is a 26% chance vaccines don't work....  and then posted a random article that disproves your claim..... 

Brilliant. Love it. Keep up the good work.

Going to the match. Dancing at the Star and Garter. Meeting up with friends legally. Shaking hands legally. Leaving Manchester Academy buzzing, soaked in sweat but cold coz it's November.

The 26% was mentioned by Fuzzy Afro in his post which was quoted.

Really? Do I have to quote mandolin for you? She specifically said 26% 

Fuzzy was misunderstanding and then she just went even further from what I'm reading... 

Granted its late and I may be wrong but I dont think so.

Fuzzy Afro said about the vaccines working at 74% (I’m surmising) then Mandolin mentioned the 26% in response using the phrase ‘in your own words’.

74% was in relation to immune compromised people...  The vaccine is still 74% effective at protecting the most vulnerable in society from infection.

The protection against hospitalisation and death will be even higher.

That is still a very high benchmark of protection.  This was out of a question about who exactly is vulnerable to the virus ?  People keep saying they are vulnerable but the evidence does not stack up.  The whole point of the vaccine roll out was to give these people first dibs on the vaccine to protect them.  And it worked, and they are protected and life should be good.

Vaccines aren't magic bullets - but they should be enough for people to move on - or they should seek counselling and support not fear mongering from Pagel and the rest of the fear mongering media whores.

Hope not fear!

Live music, festival and gigs as I've missed them so much. Went to the Download Pilot so had a fix last month but have something booked almost every weekend in August until the end of September. 

Also, not having to book every restaurant and pub/bar in advance, what a mood killer that is.

I'm not really looking forward to anything. I can go to the pub when I want. There's live music on in my local venue, albeit I have to sit down. I can go to the office at work as and when I want. Everyone, and I mean everyone, I know is hugging and shaking hands.

I'm not bothered about nightclubs and dancing, so apart from Glastonbury, not sure what else there is.

Is that attended with officially or attended with the hundreds that stormed the ground and the thousands they mixed with outside the ground? Haha hard to tell 

Yeah I don't quite get this argument. On your point there were loads of people at Wembley who were ticketless but other events such as festivals are hardly going to get stormed, for example you don't get 100,000 people waiting in Glastonbury Town on the off chance of breaking in to the festival. Yes there are risks for mass gatherings but most other planned events are fully outside where transmission is lower and probably wouldn't get as rowdy, for example I'm yet to hear of any infections from Wimbledon.

Transmission is almost certainly happening on the transport to venues and in the pubs before the game.  

It isnt the surprising that Wimbledon with their jewellery rattlers aren't probably craming on the tube as much vs parking their 4x4 in the £15 per hour car park.

Likewise most people arrive at Silverstone in cars. Either direct to the venue or to the neighboring campsites.

Demographics matter.

In this regards I reckon festivals are probably safer than the football but less safe than Wimbledon. Cars are still the most likely transport option for festival.   Saying thay, crowded tents and bars ain't going to be good.  And if it rains then its a shit shoe superspreading event as people cram even more indoors 

Depends how much we care about cases still.
