Re: New law regarding protest.

This is an appalling bill that allows up to 10 years for attacking a statue whilst convictions for rape start at 5 years.

UK cap on nuclear stockpile to increase to 260

Whilst this doesn't actually mean they intend to manufacture additional warheads it does smack of sabre rattling from a country in decline.

Re: New coronavirus in/from China

The same group of people who scream conspiracy theory are now pedalling one of their own. Either the vaccine is being withdrawn/criticised for medical reasons or for non-scientific agenda-pushing reasons. But scientific decision making has been an oxymoron all along. Listening to the science has, a...

Re: New coronavirus in/from China

Anyone experiencing vaccine shortages in their area? My mother had her first dose on 7th Jan and was due to get the second one on 18th March but I've just had notification that this has been postponed and that they will send out a new date soon. Local Facebook pages indicate that there are no appoin...

Re: US watch

I watched a piece by Trevor Noah (host of The Daily show) about the GOP's efforts to restrict access to voting in various states, it was on instagram so I don't know how to link it here. Among the proposals are banning voting on days preceding election day, this would affect initiatives such as soul...

Re: New coronavirus in/from China

I have kept from mentioning my employment for the last several months due an ongoing issue. etc. This is a tragic story and I'm sure everyone reading this feels sympathy for the man you described and anger at the CVT for the changes they are bringing in. Just a little anecdote. A man from my villag...

Re: New coronavirus in/from China

There is so much that that bbc post did not talk about. The occupants of care homes are the oldest and frailest demographic. They may not develop as as strong an immune response even after being vaccinated. Having been kept under lockdown most tightly , they may now be belatedly coming into contact...

Re: New coronavirus in/from China

This raises some interesting points, leaving aside the presence of those who illegally accessed the ward, should the doctors have let the patient leave with his friends as he wanted. Do they have the duty / right to keep him there on oxygen to keep him alive? If they let him leave are they risking ...

Re: Wild deer set to wreak havoc in UK

There has got to be a business opportunity here. Obviously the deer are free to take, I'm less sure on the processing, distribution and disposal. There was one until the supermarkets killed off the local butchers who would take one or two carcases at a time. Supermarkets will only take animals thro...

Re: US watch

We live in a particularly Orwellian world when those who doubt Trump's sanity can be called morons while those who find his antics "normal" are the sensible ones. Is it now normal to pose like Mussolini and make speeches like Hitler and have raids on the democratic fabric of the day openl...
