    How would you rate the UK's handling of this pandemic?

    It arrived in a NZ summer which was a benefit. They will have more covid deaths in due course, vaccine or not

    How would you rate the UK's handling of this pandemic?

    You are one of many who have a military fetish. We had it with the Nightingales too. But anyway if this is a pandemic why are the nightingales shut and no Army nurses manning them before? If this was a genuine pandemic we would have recruited student nurses into the Nightingales etc. It was a...

    How would you rate the UK's handling of this pandemic?

    You mean you don't like the figures I quoted. Furthermore the non covid excess deaths I quoted were not in hospital they were at home. So no decisions about icu were made.

    He wasn't advocating mass deaths. But I'm pointing out to you that lockdown has not come without other non covid deaths either (30k excess non covid deaths for a start). Everyone does not have a "right" to not die of covid, its just ridiculous statement.

    Won't somebody think of "young people"? (Edit: and No, older people aren't "to blame")

    I have read that book before. I never mentioned the local community.

    Not befuddled at all. I'm saying that land with planning gets a massive uplift in value. You can have two fields in a village one worth £1000000 acre and another worth £10k acre depending on planning. Even an old codger like you should be able to see that. The other thing is of course the...

    The reason it is expensive to buy a house is because of the planning laws and supply of money. Its not to do with who owns the land as much as how much land is made available to build on. Most land is agricultural usage - you cant really do a lot with it except farm it until it gets into a...

    How would you rate the UK's handling of this pandemic?

    No. That isn't his argument. His argument is more probably - "this is bad news and sadly part of the collateral damage of a pandemic (when it actually was a pandemic). Yes we were ill prepared for a covid pandemic but that was then this is now"

    Anthony Faucci said this way back.

    Whered did I say people who were clinically vulnerable were on their last legs?

    How would you rate the UK's handling of this pandemic?

    Do you realise how sensitive the pcr test is? It amplifies the viral strands way beyond what is transmissible. It is innaccurate to keep testing people who are healthy this way. HIV and Typhoid are different virus'

    How would you rate the UK's handling of this pandemic?

    We are testing ourselves into a box. Test the people who are ill. The people who are not ill are that - not ill. This is the first time we have started pretending that not unwell people are "diseased". Its ridiculous.

    How would you rate the UK's handling of this pandemic?

    Fair enough. Some hospitals will have local spikes. But you also need to acknowledge many don't. As I say there were 30k excess deaths (non covid) which we didn't save last year. And the hospitals were not full of covid patients in jul-october.

    How would you rate the UK's handling of this pandemic?

    No I just don't want to talk about my local hospital. But its about 300 deaths from covid from a 400k population if it helps. 0.07%. Thats my health board not my hospital - we have about 4 or 5 hospitals. I have no doubt excess deaths from non covid sources will be higher. And I have also have...

    How would you rate the UK's handling of this pandemic?

    Given that the IFR curve looks very similar all over Europe (incl Sweden) then it appears unlikely that there would have been massive amounts of excess deaths if we hadn't locked down. Take away the care home cock up which was a mistake, take away excess deaths from non covid which arguably...
