This coronavirus in China
anyone else worried? 9 dead so far.

CNY soon so the virus will spread very quickly if they cannot control it. It'll be in Europe by the end of CNY if not earlier.

is this the end of humanity?

Re: This coronavirus in China
I remember Cressida Dick being called in and given a dressing down by the Home Secretary over the Met kneeling. I have also heard and seen plenty of politicians refuse to kneel and who have openly criticised BLM. I’ve also seen and heard lots of MPs criticise lockdowns and the policing of lockdown protests.

You never seem to mention these politicians when you make sweeping statements about what ‘politicians’ think Mashed.

Re: This coronavirus in China
How arguments from me there, but isn’t that just another example of govt’s cowtailing to “society” which effectively is big business, the medias (social and mainstream) and the shouty minority?

The same cowtailing that could lead to further lockdowns. Thereby more weakness, not exerting power because they can.

Unless you’re suggesting they’re all in cahoots with each other?

I’m reading a book on the English civil war. It seems you either need a religion or a strong leader to garner support that might end up killing you. You just need the right beliefs.

Re: This coronavirus in China
Plod knelt in the streets to BLM then ragged around old ladies and steamed in on anti-lockdown protests. Politicians and big business post hashtags in support of one and totally ignore/insult the other. Should tell you all you need to know about which one suits their agenda and which one they really consider a threat.

How did BLM give anyone more power?

It made those in power look very weak and therefore less powerful for me.

"You can bet your life “society” would demand they did, as “society” has been demanding all along. Including now with people trying to stop schools going back"


Isn't it strange how they bend the knee to the public opinion when it results in them getting more power for themselves yet send riot plod in on people protesting against it.

Re: This coronavirus in China
But that’s the situation isn’t it? If a new variant comes along and causes the same as what the first “thing” did and vaccines couldn’t touch it then they’d have to lock down again wouldn’t they?

You can bet your life “society” would demand they did, as “society” has been demanding all along. Including now with people trying to stop schools going back.

There’s also some fucking idiots wanting us to give vaccine away before we’ve sorted ourselves out.

So I can’t take your bet because I don’t believe there won’t ever be another lockdown, just for entirely different reasons to you.

You’re in the camp of they do it because they want to, I’m in the camp of they’ll do it if they have to - because they don’t know what else to do and “society” is too weak and stupid to plough on through these days.

I’m fine believing them when they say this is the last lockdown but also not thinking that any subsequent lockdown is a result of a deliberate and pre-planned lie. Things change.

Helps me deal with it anyway.

I’d absolutely want to see them toughen up and adopt a steer of getting people to adapt and learn to live with it before shutting down mind you.

Those measures will be universal basic income because of automation and the 4th industrial revolution.
It’s all planned and they’re using this virus to steamroller it through.

The fact you'd rather argue than take a simple bet shows you have zero confidence in anything you're saying.

"Why is it people hang on every word when something aligns with their view but ignore things that don’t"


Because giving politicians the benefit of the doubt is always a let-down, assume their intentions are nefarious and you'll unfortunately get a much better filter on what's going to happen. This is why when Hancock made a point of saying we'll be free until a new varient comes out (there will always be a new varient) you can trust him.

(Offer is open to you too btw, you know I'm not a Darby_ who'll welch out and at least one of our mutuals has my home address....)

Re: This coronavirus in China
Politicians chose their scientists wisely. Science is a kind of religion for those who are not Abrahamics. They see it as truth and not a discussion. The politicians are not stupid. They could have chosen scientists from a different position of indeed both positions.

Anyway. The future will be told and either MIM will keep saying “I told you so” or something else will happen.

Locking up the well is a rubicon.

Re: This coronavirus in China
If you wish to lie and then “cba” to back it up, then why bother spamming the thread in the first place?

I’ve made this suggestion before.

Go and get laid, or at least attempt to. Your obsession with being “right” might mean a little less to you thereafter.

Re: This coronavirus in China
Ferguson isn’t in charge and got sacked for flouting the rules he was talking about “getting away with” thereby proving what he was talking about.

Which is the western world is not used to impose restrictions a la the Chinese and it is difficult to get people to comply.

You can interpret it in that he means forever and for no reason other than to have power, or you can assume he was talking about imposing in restrictions on western cultures as part of his job as an epidemiologist being asked questions about locking down to prevent the spread of disease.

Why is it people hang on every word when something aligns with their view but ignore things that don’t?

Ferguson said what he said then, he’s also saying something very different now so why aren’t you fixing on his latest comments?

Was he telling the truth then and lying now or what?

Re: This coronavirus in China
This obviously isn't directed at you then simon.

Usually this thread is full of "back to normal by summer, good old Boris, we can trust him, its all over soon"

I'm predicting it won't be and we will lock down again before March 7th 2022.

If anyone disagrees, and is so sure I'm wrong, earn yourself £100.

Why are so many people are very quick to say someone is wrong, but not confident enough to put anything on it? I have full belief in what I'm saying, have you..?

Re: This coronavirus in China
I’ve never hung on every word a politician has said, and I certainly haven’t since covid came along. I’m sure Boris is probably on record as saying he doesn’t want any more lockdowns, but that’s just to appease the public. It’s what they do.

Re: This coronavirus in China
So precisely explain when Italy became a communist one party state please Mim.

And while you’re about it can you define what you think defines lockdown, how widespread it has to be and where it has to be so that we can consider whether to take your bet please.

Your money is safe, mashed. Politicians lie, get used to it. But as nobody has a crystal ball, I’m not sure what you’re trying to prove here.
