The EU was late to the vaccine table, late placing orders, late signing contracts.
Three months late !!!
To compensate, the EU Bully Boys, tried to steal the UKs contracted orders. They are insisting that vaccine producer, Oxford-AstraZeneca, fulfill EU order shortfalls by diverting the UKs vaccine supplies.
And, while they are arguing with the vaccine suppliers, they thought it would be prudent to effectively shut down the border between the UK and Ireland. The very sticking point that nearly collapsed the Brexit agreement.
They, the EU, invoked Article 16.
This they did without warning and without informing any of the parties involved i.e. UK, Northern Ireland or the Republic of Ireland.
Following a flurry of communiques, the EU has made a u-turn, claiming their actions were a mistake, an oversight.
Well that’s just Bollocks !!!
Issuing the paperwork to invoke Article 16 would have required signatures at a very high level.
So, the EU are Bully Boys and Liars.
To me this indicates that the EU, still upset that we had the temerity to leave their club, intend to punish us for Brexit every chance they can.
Despite the pandemic dominating the television news programs, throughout the four countries that make up the United Kingdom.
Despite every newspaper carrying the painful story of the deaths, caused by the pandemic, on their front pages.
Despite pleas from Boris Johnson and his team of ministers, medical and scientific experts.
These absolute morons and many others like them around the UK, continue to defy the rules and regulations put in place to try and control the pandemic.
Plainly, the threat of fines doesn’t deter them from putting their pleasure ahead of the nations health.
Boris gets a lot of flak regarding the governments actions over the last, nearly, 12 months. Charges of acting too slowly, too late, not enforcing the tiers or lockdown strictly enough.
But it doesn’t matter what the government does while these fucktards are out there.
Here’s a thought. Perhaps the police should have put padlocks on the outside of the rave site. The organisers had already padlocked the doors from the inside. This was an opportunity to quarantine all the attendees. They could have been locked inside for 14 days. Making this a combined quarantine and jail sentence. Then they could be let out, one at a time, each being given a temperature test before being allowed to go home.
From the BBC ….
Vaccinations minister Nadhim Zahawi says they could open 24 hours a day, if there is need
What planet is Zahawi on ?
If there is a need ? Where does the bloody “if” come from ?
Of course there is a need. Has he not seen the news. The numbers of sick and dying increasing. The NHS bordering on collapse.
Surely the default should have been a steady increase of vaccinations to match the availability. Then steadily increasing to 24/7 provision until this pandemic is quashed.
The more people vaccinated will surely help alleviate the NHS overload.
I don’t understand our governments “softly softly” approach to everything to do with this pandemic. Slow to the harsher tiers, slow to full lock down, slow to hard border controls. And why so slow to enforcement ?
We should be giving vaccinations 24/7 now !!!
Today my wife received a text from our local GP Surgery, inviting her to make an appointment to have the Covid-19 vaccine.
Within 10 minutes, of receiving the text, we had contacted the surgery only to be told that they were not making anymore vaccination appointments.
Apparently there are vaccine supply issues !!!
This is not an auspicious start to the roll out of the vaccine.
Given the accelerated spread of Covid-19 these are scary times. So to be offered the vaccine, then to have it snatched away, is very frustrating.
I am so done with these fucking idiots. I do despair at the selfishness that they display..
If they want to put themselves at risk that’s their business.
But, by their actions, they risk infecting everyone around them. OK, they are surrounded by like minded individuals, so who cares if they infecting each other?
But the truth is, it doesn’t end there. By arranging these mass gatherings they put the emergency services at risk.
Such as the police, who could be doing something more productive with their time, have to monitor / control the marchers.
And, because there is always a rogue element who see a peaceful protest as an opportunity for mayhem, the medics also end up wasting their time on these idiots before transporting them to our already overloaded hospitals.
Selfish. It’s the only way to describe their actions.
We need to listen to this guy. More so than the voices of the sensationalist media.
The UK could see a second spike in coronavirus cases if young people don’t follow social distancing rules, the health secretary says.
A third of all cases in England last week were people aged between 20 and 29.
Ever since the declaration of the pandemic. Ever since the UK government invoked the lock down. There were reports of youngsters ignoring the rules.
Angry reports, on social media, of large gatherings of youths in our local parks late into the night. And then there are the illegal raves with hundreds gathering.
Many will say there is no surprise, that this is the young doing what they always do, that we should let them get on with it, leave them alone.
But, and it’s a big but, there are the potential consequences.
Pick something up at these large gatherings and you take it home. Pass it on to your siblings, to your parents and even your grandparents.
Many people will blame the government, saying they are not doing enough. Blaming mixed messages and so on.
But one thing the government has been clear about, have constantly stated amidst all of their messages.
Maintain social distancing, maintain good hygiene practices, wear masks.
I just hope, given the rise in infections amongst the young, that they get the message. And soon.
These people are morons.
With millions dead and millions more sick, these idiots are saying “you can’t catch what doesn’t exist”.
I can only think that they believe the pandemic to be a global conspiracy.
Anybody who enters this salon only has themselves to blame if they or their family and friends get sick.
The authorities should close them down.
That is my opinion of the organisers and attendees at this illegal rave.
We are constantly being told that it is the older generation, including me, that are at risk, that we should be abiding by the social distancing rules and self isolating.
And yet this message is somehow lost on the young in this country. Although this incident was happening in Wales, it is just one of many that are happening across the whole of the UK.
The young quite happily ignore all the rules. They ignore the fact that anything they pick up, at these events and other such gatherings, will be taken home and shared with their friends and family. Shared with their parents and, possibly, their grandparents.
Ch Supt Simon Belcher says: “This type of illegal gathering is totally unacceptable and we are aware of the concerns it is causing for the local community.
“I would like to again remind people of their obligations under the current coronavirus legislation and the overarching goal for everyone to take personal responsibility by following Welsh government regulations to keep Wales safe.”
What is required is that the government give the powers to clamp down on these incidents and for the authorities to exercise those powers.
The message isn’t getting through. It is time to make examples of the organisers and the attendees.
