June 21st is finished - you can forget that for starters.

only question now is whether what we currently have will be maintained.
huge implications for a lot of businesses this summer, huge questions should be asked how the government has got itself into yet another mess - other countries don't have this Indian variant, and the other European countries will now open up quicker than us.

Totally agree with you about the covidiots who refuse to take the vaccine - that’s their problem and if they die then tough.

Problem now is not how they fare but the people they give it to. Even 21 days after the second Astra jab you are not immune , your just less likely to need a respirator.

Yep, 21st June is gone for sure

Border control AGAIN the issue. Amazing that we will squander the biggest of head starts on the rest of Europe in terms of vaccination with such non-existent border control. Absolutely woeful :banghead:

I've no doubt some of it is to get people to holiday at home to help the economy.
Starting to doubt whether we will get away to Alcudia in August.
Thank fuck we had a lovely break at Butlins , Myself and a mate are off to Swindon in 2 weeks to meet up with some Ingerlish lads we used to share digs and go drinking with when we worked there in the 80s. and hopefully me and the missus will get to London in July.
Terrible for any families who were looking forward to getting away this month, after a year and a half of this shit! How do you explain to little kids that "we can't go on holiday next week"

If someone who has refused the Vaccine catches it - Then they shouldn't be treated just let the fuckkers die.

They should at the very least have to pay for any medical treatment.

You simply should be banned from entering workplaces, public places, pubs, restaurants etc!!
It's no different to what we've all had to endure for the last 18 months!
No vaccine no fucking entry!
What really fucks me off is that the "deprived areas, ethnic minorities and lefty c u n t s " who complained they were dying because they were being discriminated against' are the very same bastards that wont get vaccinated!!

So infection numbers have doubled over the last few weeks, does that translate into more deaths is the question.

Don't be surprised if reopening is put back a few weeks, and tbh I don't think we have much choice. I've read a few articles this morning that the Pfizer Vaccine generates fewer antibodies that can fight the Indian/Delta variant than the others.

Looks like it's a wait-and-see question, no one knows the answer. If vaccinated people start dropping like flies, this would be the biggest Boris fuck up so far.

Absolutely. I remember this time last year that a number of prominent groups representing ethnic minorities were urging the Government to do more to investigate why the serious illness and death rate was disproportionately high, especially within black people. Roll forward 12 months and the lowest take up of the vaccine nationally is within these groups. Not sure what the government can do about that?

What needs bearing in mind is that the U.K. has one of the highest take up rates in the world for the vaccine.
The people have largely complied with the lockdowns and taken the vaccine.

Any delays to reopening is all on the government. There is not even any argument now.

Anyway I’m off to the Derby tomorrow.
Got a ticket :barscarf:

Enjoy the Derby, before the bungling attempt at border control sees us go into another lockdown and denies us all the simple pleasures in life

The pictures in India dominated TV screens around the world, so what was our response..............lets give everyone 10 days notice to come flooding back, no need to quarantine in monitored accomodation, feel free to roam around without any follow up. Roll forward a few weeks, and look at where the hotspots are - areas with a renowned high population of people having visited India and community transmission. Now the dominant strain of the virus in this country. Top scientist today declares that if we were dealing with the Kent variant still we'd be talking about being on course for 21 June, but not now

No doubt we'll have thousands of holidaymakers from Portugal dashing back before its off the green list, spreading the Nepal variant too

It isn't hard is it? Look at Australia and New Zealand. Insist that any international arrivals go into government hotels.......the fuckers are all empty anyway !

I was laughed at on the Brexit thread a few years ago when I said that Jacinda Ardern was a great example of a leader that brought people together. Well a few years later with all her country onside, she has played a great innings looking after her citizens and they have only 5% of the population vaccinated.

Boris for all the plaudits he should get with the vaccine rollout was too scared to offend the Indians by closing our borders when he should have done. So now everything is on a knife-edge,

I know some groups haven't taken the vaccine, but overall the take-up is well above 70% and it does seem like younger people are taking the vaccine as well which is critical. Now Pfizer has been approved for school kids, thats a tricky decision for parents.

The latest UK deaths figures are three percent below the five-year average, according to the Office for National Statistics.

The number of deaths registered in the UK in the week ending 28 May was 10,977 - 106 involved Covid-19, nine fewer than the previous week.

The only time, since last March, that fewer than 100 deaths were recorded by the ONS in a single week was the week of the August bank holiday last year.


Why are we waiting.................why are we waiting........
