Shops accounted for a tiny, tiny fraction of infections. This lunacy is just making a depressing situation worse. Future generations will look back on this and wonder what the Welsh government had been smoking.
Here we go again with the cancel culture. How exactly are Petrov's opinions concerning sexuality going to affect his judgement of driving infringements? It's just that some people think their opinions are sacrosanct and those who disagree with them shouldn't be entitled to a job. Now, how tolerant is that?
Whitty, Vallance et al. are stuck in a psychological trap. In order to do the right thing and open the country up again, they'd need to admit to themselves that they stole seven months of everyone's lives, wrecked the economy for a decade and destroyed the jobs, businesses, relationships and retirement plans for millions. That's too much of a burden for anyone to take on voluntarily and so they must be relieved of their positions.
This keeps happening. There's something deeply wrong when so many "professionals" can endanger children by denying what is completely obvious. The parents and the governors should be hauling the school's head over the coals for this.
Anyone remember the '80s when locking up people with HIV, a really deadly virus that was killing nearly everyone infected with it, was deemed as unethical and ineffective? What a long time ago that seems.
And? They still sell the Koran on Amazon, too.
That patient is absolutely guaranteed not to contract or spread the virus now. Have they chalked this one up as a success?
Die within 28 days of a positive test result and you're a Covid death. Die after taking an experimental vaccine and you're an unrelated and incidental death. They'll probably try to fine your estate for "disrupting vital medical research" or "alerting the public to the dangers of untested vaccines".
Lockdown policies and politicians' promises: two things you absolutely know you cannot rely on.
"The measures didn't work so we've renewed them" - I suppose we should just be glad they settled on closing the pubs instead of something equally ineffective but even more damaging like human sacrifice. Sweaty socks led by donkeys.
