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?

Fair do’s Kim, but the context needed to be shown…

It wasn't a "try", it was me as succinctly as possible summarising my full position in the context of a discussion about government mandates.

I didn't know you were referring to something else as I only skimmed your post, shit happens 👍

Re: This coronavirus in China
Nice try mim…

Except that is out of context mim, as a parent you encourage your kids to make their own decisions as much as possible and then decide if they are ‘allowed’ to follow through on that decision as they are young and often make wrong decisions….. it’s called parental guidance …..you may dislike this but all children need to know boundaries hence we are made legally bound as parents to look after their best interests up until they are legally adults, although many kids show enough maturity for them to make good decisions all the way from their teens….you all seem to look for this thing that isn’t there….

"There should be no "allowing" involved in such choices.

That, alone, implies somebody (felt they) had some sort of control over her decision making"

Bingo. That fully sums up the whole issue for me tbh. Almost all the rest is noise.

Re: This coronavirus in China
What a shitshow this thread is. I include my own contributions in that assessment.

Who is to blame?

A) butter-fingered Chinese lab tech

B) goose, for starting the thread

C) Repka

Yep, I'm sure we'll be fine. We'll just keep doing our thing, trying to keep the number of deaths low, and stop the spread as quickly as we can. It's worked for the last 2 years, and it will work now.

Well, she's been wrong every other time I've read something you posted from her, so I'm not too surprised.

It’s gone way beyond questioning and being inquisitive and all we’ve learned is that the U.K. government is doing it’s best to avoid being a subliminal dictatorship…..

Why is it you have a problem with that?

Is questioning, inquisitiveness and learning verboten?

Show me the rule that states that you have to be/stay married to be a (good) parent.

I don't feel that where you are in the world actually matters, just that you give your children the best opportunities available - and don't try to impose your interpretation of "best" upon anyone else; that suggests doubt and insecurity on your part.

Re: This coronavirus in China
Mike you’ve not really participated in much of what goes on in the U.K. and are now trying to draw this into a parenting competition when the first rule is try not to get divorced….

I'm demanding nothing; that;s a spin you're putting on my words to try and justify your position.

Now YOU are suggesting that I like driving; I've not driven since about 1998, so, upon what are you basing that assumption? Lots of people YOU know do? Ri-i-i-i-i-ight. Good one.

And as for a "responsible" parent, do behave!

A responsible parent would have presented unopinionated facts - or guidance on where to find them, so that she could make her own mind up - not do something to please her parents.

If she is of school age she shouldn't be going anywhere near this experimental drug in the first place - it doesn't even offer any extra protection to teachers, so there, straight away, is a risk to the kid's future for no benefit to anyone.

Still, "the authorities" have spoken, and arguing with that is tantamount to arguing with a religious fanatic.

Re: This coronavirus in China
The issue is

1. Do vaccines help for Sars Cov2?
2. Should individuals be allowed to decide if they wish to take it and still fully participate in society?
3. Are decisions around the vaccines at government level political? Particularly as opposed to purely public health as its been understood historically?
4. If vaccines do little except reduce death and possibly severe illness in the highly susceptible why is everybody encouraged to take several? Bearing in mind most people will come through happily.
5. Have governments backed the wrong horse?

Re: This coronavirus in China
Just caught an item on BBC News about protests in Brussels, which they’ve labelled as Covid demonstrations but then seemed forced to admit the demonstrators attempted to attack the EU Headquarters

Strange. The EU targeted? So is it a Covid demo or an anti EU demo

Re: This coronavirus in China
See here you go again Mike stuck with the comfort blanket of demanding figures…..use your loaf you are the biggest threat to your safety just by the things you choose to do, like for instance driving but because you like being in a car it doesn’t count but if the government said we all had to drive you’d get all mincey about it…..

….Oh and the allowance of her having the jab was by us her responsible parents….you like Rio’s buckle too easy to paranoia which causes you to think shit that ain’t actually happened in this country…..reel it in ffs you are getting hysterical….this is basically because there WAS a possibility you could subtlety be told what to do….really?

..."This is why my daughter was allowed to refuse it "...

There should be no "allowing" involved in such choices.

That, alone, implies somebody (felt they) had some sort of control over her decision making.

How many people need to have not tested the substances you mentioned to actually give your statement any credibility?

People get their legs broken playing football. Should they avoid swimming because of that?
