I heard on the news just now that the government is telling some GPs / Vaccination centres in some areas to slow down and let other areas that are lagging catch up. Unless this is in order to redistribute supply due to a lack of vaccine then its bonkers. Why on earth would you put the brakes on?

Gentlemen of Chatterbox, Birdbrain is resorting to side-tracking and provocative posts and throwing insults left right and centre to keep himself active on this (and other) threads, ignoring the widespread criticism he has faced, as if he was our own pestilent Donald Trump, careless of anyone's views other than his own and determined to bluster his way through. It makes no sense to respond to him any way.

I suggest everyone simply ignores his posts altogether from now on.

I have posted once on this thread and quoted what another member said about flapping about Covid ... Maybe you can tell why you have taken umbridge with that ???

That is what they have done throughout though. Not shared the data. Its what they do. Once again as throughout the entire pandemic the governments first thought is to protect themselves, not us. Always. Its great that we are the second fastest country in the world to roll out a vaccine but a leopard does not change its spots.

The Prime Minister yesterday admitted officials were 'concerned' about the variant and claimed the Government was 'taking steps' to ensure it doesn't spread in Britain.

Taking steps....what steps....well....just hoping really...we really really hope it doesn't get here.
Eventually we will ban flights ,but only after 3 days of hoping.

Its just madness! Once again, too little too late. Its almost like its deliberate.

"However, as of 8am today, people can still travel to England from Brazil and do not need a negative Covid-19 result before they arrive." WTF? Why? All it takes is one, just one person with this new strain to enter the UK and thats it, its here. It might inconvenience people from Brazil they say. Oh really? Thats no good then is it.

Its not hysteria, its frustration. Ever since March its been too little too late with Johnson and his team. Thats how they started and it seems they learn nothing and each time there is a new development they react too slowly. You could be forgiven for thinking it was deliberate. Each time, the experts scream at them to react, they delay. We can see it, why can they?

Albania is not in the EU and it kind of goes without saying that the bloc will help its own members first but there has been nothing stopping countries in or out of the EU securing and going ahead with their own vaccine strategy anyway. The UK decided to just go ahead first rather than wait for EU approval but any country could have done that. Hopefully we have done the right thing and I supported it. We do seem to have stormed ahead because we started earlier. I think only Israel is ahead of us. Its a long race though, there is plenty of opportunity for Johnson to mess it up but so far so good.
