Girls aren’t taught to look for “quality” any more.

Instapundit last week:

CHICKS DIG BAD BOYS (CONT’D): Women sending killer dad Chris Watts ‘racy’ letters. “Watts isn’t the only criminal to receive such letters. Frequent love letters have also been written to killers Ted Bundy, Jeffrey Dahmer, Charles Manson and Richard Ramirez (who ended up marrying one of his admirers).”

Sending love letters to Charles Manson is really weird. Just putting this thought out there girls.

As men, can’t possibly know what goes through the brain of a critter who has been trained for years in childhood to understand that being cute gets you stuff and approval rather than a smack in the head.

“Two months ago Mr O’Keefe was charged with slapping, kicking and spitting on his doctor girlfriend in a row over an ice pipe she claimed he was carrying at a party.”

He was subject to a DVO, which he didn’t even attempt to have set aside.
He has now (alleged) breached that DVO.
If true, Mr O’Keefe is in a lot of trouble, and will find it very hard to avoid either rehab or a community protection order (home detention).

Gronk attack!!

This is an example of what I mean when I say the government isnt content to let people dissapear on the margins anymore.
Speculating here , but that looks to me a bit like a gentleman of the street (the bag of assorted belongings on the path) who has been stopped and given an order/fine or fuckaround by the lady constables.

Most of these people have active drug and/or mental problems but our “caring’ society would rather they be ‘invisible’ on the margins than treated and rehabbed.

Come the pandemic and the government wont treat & rehab them, but it also wont let them be invisible anymore and seeks to control people whos whole lives are just chaos.

Hoboman is lucky the policettes partner chose to run away and not tazer/shoot him. But at some stage that is going to happen because you cant push on the metally ill without serious consequences for everyone involved.

30 years ago a person could up stumps, drop out of society and effectively disappear into the countryside or margins of the city.
Our wise idiots in government dont like this as people not being controlled scares them.

Interesting new restrictions on ivermectin.”
*********
Their three reasons for banning most Australian doctors from prescribing it for covid are:
(a) creating shortages for other uses – well, at least that’s explicable;
(b) a bunch of transnational stooges have ranted against it – why should a qualified Australian doctor be prevented from treating a specific patient according to the patient’s specific need just because some trough-snouting bugpeople are trying to maintain big pharma’s monopoly?
(c ) and this purler…

“Secondly, the doses of ivermectin that are being advocated for use in unreliable social media posts and other sources for COVID-19 are significantly higher than those approved and found safe for scabies or parasite treatment. These higher doses can be associated with serious adverse effects, including severe nausea, vomiting, dizziness, neurological effects such as dizziness, seizures and coma.”

But why ban doctors prescribing it? If they’re telling us that Australian health professionals aren’t competent to use a drug that’s been widely used for decades because they’ll gullibly fall for internet memes, then why are we supposed to trust health professionals telling us to take the mRNA vaccines?

I knew it was a political hit job. It failed spectacularly for Labor here in NSW with McKay losing her leadership job……plus I thought the left celebrated “sex work”…I description I loathe because it demeans sex and work.

“Dumped Nationals MP Michael Johnsen reveals all on rape allegations

Dumped Nationals MP Michael Johnsen has revealed clandestine details about his trysts with a sex worker — in a bush, under a bridge and at her house — but has vowed he will “never” pay for intimacy again after being accused of rape.

Dumped Nationals MP Michael Johnsen has revealed clandestine details about his trysts with a sex worker in a bush, under a bridge and at her house but has vowed he will “never” pay for intimacy again after his detractors accused him of rape in parliament.

In an exclusive interview with The Daily Telegraph, the former Upper Hunter MP revealed he was still eyeing a return to politics and has found solace with new love Karla who has supported him in the wake of claims made in parliament that he raped the thirty-something sex worker.

Speaking candidly about the “anguish” he suffered after rival Labor MP Trish Doyle used Parliamentary privilege to state he raped a prostitute and was embroiled in a lewd Question Time sexting scandal, he said: “I made mistakes, I’m an imperfect human, I was messy, my divorce had a huge impact on me.”

“I saw a sex worker and, yes, it was not my first dalliance — but I’ve never seen one while in a committed relationship.

“It was titillating and exciting — I was finding myself again after thirty years of marriage. I married at the age of 21 and had never played the field.

“I’m a red blooded male, sorry if I get turned on. But rape? It just didn’t happen.

“It’s caused deep anguish, I lost control of myself, my self esteem and emotions.

“It was stitched up over the Upper Hunter seat. But I was stupid to be texting the sex worker in parliament.”

Mr Johnsen said he had no hard feelings towards the woman, or “the oldest profession in the world,” but believes she took umbrage over a tweet he wrote asking how many Black Lives Matter protesters also demonstrated in favour of full term abortions.

The woman complained to police and her local MP Trish Doyle who 18 months later in March, under parliamentary privilege, stated “a sitting MP” raped a woman at a lookout in the Blue Mountains in September 2019.

Details emerged that he sent her lewd text messages. One dated September 24 said, “Not fair, I‘m sitting in the chamber with a hard on now”. Another read “I’m in QT and f*** I’m horny and want you so bad — need you, I want you and I can’t wait to f*** you over and over again xxx.”

She claimed he sent an obscene video of him masturbating while parliament was sitting.

Mr Johnsen identified himself after Ms Doyle’s speech after his name was leaked to the media.

He was booted out of the National Party and resigned from state parliament triggering a by-election in May in which the Nationals retained the Upper Hunter turning the seat into one of the most marginal in the state at 0.5 per cent.

“I’m Catholic and I was adopted as a child, my mum never aborted me, and gave me the chance to be here today,” he said, defending his tweet.

“I met the sex worker through Locanto personal ads, for three times in three weeks — the first at the Yellow Rock lockout in the Blue Mountains — when she claimed I raped her — yet she agreed a second encounter, at her home in the Blue Mountains, and the third, under a bridge,” he said.

“She continued to send me topless photos, it was still flirtatious until the end.

“I don’t hate sex workers, they provide a service, it’s the world’s oldest profession, but would I go back? Never. I have Karla now — our brains connect as well as everything else.”

The sex worker claimed Mr Johnsen raped her at the look out and sent her lewd texts during Parliamentary Question Time and offered $1000 to have sex in parliament.

“That text doesn’t exist,” he said, adding, “Nor does the video in which she claims I was standing in a toilet holding a tablet masturbating while filming myself — unless you’ve got three hands that’s impossible.”

Police, with the DPP ruled last month there was “insufficient admissible evidence” to proceed with charges.

Mr Johnsen says he suffers anxiety from the ordeal but a relationship with education sector worker Karla, whom he had dated for several weeks when the scandal broke, has given him a fresh start.

He has written to Speaker of the NSW Legislative Assembly, Jonathan O’Dea, asking the lower house to refer Ms Doyle’s actions, and then-Opposition leader Jodi McKay’s, who he said “conspired”, to the privileges and ethics committee. He wants Ms Doyle sacked.

Karla, whose home he shares in the Upper Hunter country, said she was “surprised” he had been at Yellow Rock but adds: “I love Michael, call it women’s intuition, he could never rape.”

Why is the Liberal party full of greens ABC catamites?

Liberal Andrew Bragg urges Scott Morrison to commit to net zero

“The longer term is the most important position because that underpins a permanent management plan for climate change,” Bragg said.

“Environmental risk is like any other economic risk, it needs to be managed, which is why I have always been attracted to the environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) framework, which is a way of making these risks measurable and folding them into an economic paradigm.

“There is a lot of good work out there on the table from places like the Grattan Institute, and I’m keen we work through all the opportunities to get our emissions down. This is a critical issue.”

All added up to something I have seen before in both sexes who hooked up young. As much as I consider the man low rent and a very ordinary local member who featherbedded his town of Scone with largesse, IMO he was a victim of both the ALP and those in the wet Liberal side of the house. Lib’s have their swamp creature in Layzell who will rubber stamp everything Gladys proposes. Johnsen had a habit of voting with his conscience at times.

Probably, but only because he will be ‘Cheated In’, Again, because any time someone mentions the various cheats Australian Electoral Commissions & Their Faithful Volunteers put into action and get busted at, all the Faithful Volunteers & their fellow partners in propaganda on Social Media, jump up & down, insisting even the proven cheats wouldn’t change results and so what, ‘How Dare Anyone Question The Integrity of Australia’s Voting Systems!’

All that matters is that people are made to believe that, ‘They Deserve’, the Govts that got installed against the Voters wishes, so that they will lay back and take what’s dished out to them next.

FFS, we laugh off Branch Stacking, we laugh off ‘lost’ & ‘found’ ballot boxes in key seats, we laugh off Firies & Ambos campaigning for Labor In their kit & trucks, we laugh off the mass mailout & theft of mail in ballots, BECAUSE, ‘Well, what can you do about it without getting a shovel left at your door or taking a trip down some stairs?’

Is it our fault for not getting more involved at grass roots levels?
Where to you think the enemy identifies & destroys any real threats?

And now here we are, separated, confined, watched, spied on & having our lives & livelihoods destroyed, assaulted, arrested, charged, convicted & gaoled for daring to protest govt overreach, but somehow we’re also supposed to believe that the Govts doing it to us will allow us to voted them out?

They are in the hands (currently) of the large corporations etc. Even the Unions don’t really get a look in with Labour any more. And that is why the uniparty is not about improving the wellbeing / prosperity of the voter, but enriching Colesworths, Banks, etc and it appears ever more obvious, Big Pharma.

This is my point though with Clive. Whilst LDP and Hansen’s party are prob mostly funded by the members, Craig bragged that they have a massive war chest. If it is Clive’s money – then the Party will ultimately be hostage to his whims (and not the members / voters).

Saying that, there is a risk that LDP, UAP, Hansen, Fishers etc and any independents will split the votes and the Uniparty will scrape in.

The smaller parties MUST co-ordinate between each other [it’s not collusion in politics – it’s exchanging preferences :)] and more importantly, education their supporters that they – if they want change – must preference the Hansen’s, Clives, Leyonhjelms ABOVE the uniparty … no matter how distasteful that may be.

This is critical as when knocked out the preferences remain live and not snagged by the Uniparty.

Students taught to check their privilege and ‘deconstruct’ the Australian flag

Federal Education Minister Alan Tudge says students should be taught to defend symbols of their country, not tear them down, after controversial new lessons about the flag.

By James Morrow in The Daily Telegraph

State and federal education ministers have slammed divisive third-party learning plans promoted by the NSW Department of Education in the name of anti-racism, saying students should be taught to “defend our key institutions and symbols, rather than trying to destroy them”.

The learning plans were developed by third parties and linked to from the department’s website, though some of the links vanished last week as part of what the department called a website upgrade.

Among other things, the lessons called on students to “deconstruct” symbols of Australia including the flag, Australia Day and the national anthem.

In the flag exercise, developed by a group called “Cool Australia” and using a documentary about footballer Adam Goodes as a jumping off point, students are asked to “examine” the Australian flag and analyse it to see “who is included” and “who is excluded or not visible”.

The worksheet also asks students to summarise criticisms and defences of Australia Day as part of a project of “deconstructing symbols of Australia”, and points to a number of resources, almost all of them in favour of changing the date.

These include a Buzzfeed video titled Aboriginal people respond to Australia Day, links to ABC articles urging that the national day be changed, and an article on the website of The Ethics Centre that states “the date will change” as a matter of fact, adding, “the only reasons … for opposition to changing the date is white privilege, or perhaps even racism”.

An accompanying teachers’ guide suggests that to be marked correct, students should say that it “Erases Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander sovereignty and custodianship of land”, and “Celebrates colonisation and erases the colonisers’ violent history towards Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples”.

While there are no firm figures as to how many schools use the resource, the teachers’ website Education Matters claims “hundreds” of schools use the Goodes documentary in their classrooms.

Federal Education Minister Alan Tudge said the curriculum should “focus on how to defend our key institutions and symbols, rather than trying to destroy them”.

“Our flag represents the greatest country on Earth – one which 100,000 have died defending. It ought to be respected, not torn down,” he said.

NSW Education Minister Sarah Mitchell agreed, saying students “do not need incendiary external resources pushed into the classroom from third parties”.

Bella d’Abrera, director of the Foundations of Western Civilisation Program at the Institute of Public Affairs, was similarly scathing.

“The state government has no place actively promoting radical race theory to Australian children, who will grow up believing that Australia is irredeemably racist,” she said.

Excellent.

It’s got a big star and some smaller ones. The big star is called the Sun, and it defines climate on Earth. It caused most of the warming last century, not CO2. The smaller ones can be used to work out where you need to go: just extrapolate them to the line bisecting the Centaurs and you know where south is.

The lines in the flag give our heritage. The thing in the upper left corner is the combination of the English flag, the Scots flag and the Irish saltire. Given that many if not most Aussies are derived from Poms, Scots and Paddies that is excellent. I comprise the full set!

Sadly what they mean by deconstructing the Australian flag isn’t likely to be what I regard as deconstructing it.

calli

Or this, perhaps:

Our flag bears the stars that blaze at night
In our southern sky of blue
And that little old flag in the corner
That’s part of our heritage too,
It’s for the English, the Scots and the Irish
Who were sent to the end of the earth
The rogues and the schemers and dreamers
Who gave our Australia its birth.

And you who are shouting to change it
You don’t seem to understand
It’s the flag of our laws and language
Not the flag of a far away land
There are plenty of people who’ll tell you
How when Europe was plunged into night
The little old flag in the corner
Was their symbol of freedom and light.
It don’t mean we owe our allegiance
To a forgotten imperial dream
We’ve the stars to show where we’re going
And the old flag to show where we’ve been
It’s only an old piece of bunting
It’s only an old coloured rag
But there are thousands who died for its honour
And fell in defence of our flag.

Not woke enough I suppose.

It’s official: Clive Palmer pays $20m for neighbouring ‘titanium’ house

Locally it has been dubbed the “titanium house”, likely for the extensive German engineering, which includes a bulletproof bedroom and steel-spine staircase, imported from Italy.

It should be fat food proof.

The purchase gives Mr Palmer a string of nine consecutive blocks along the Sovereign Islands’ promontory, from No. 1-5 through to No. 13-17, and will make him the owner of the largest residential landholding on the Gold Coast.

Smart, GC real estate prices keep on climbing. Southerners are buying up big.

Gold Coast house prices remained steady with 2.2 per cent growth during July, pushing it up 7.3 per cent for the recent quarter and 25.7 per cent for the year to date. The current median value for dwellings is $695,000 which is $16,000 higher than just a month ago.

Your pal made an obviously stupid comment about flags. You decided to intervene like you often do when I’m beating the Rones around the ears for being the classic underachiever at everything.

To Summarize:

1. The Rones made a silly about the Aboriginal flag inferring that lots of people would be angered if someone burned their (aboriginal) flag.

2. I responded that if they did go nuts about their flag being burnt they are clearly demonstrating fragility whereas as most other Australians are singularly robust.

Promises of improved conditions – Prisoners are told that they will be given regular P.W. status, that their isolation will end, that they will receive mail, good food, medical attention, etc., if they comply with the interrogator’s demands …

Enforcing trivial and absurd demands, the purpose of which is to develop the habit of compliance [my bolding]. (a) Forced writing – Most P.W.’s are required to write and rewrite answers to numerous questions – frequently, exceedingly trivial questions. They are given only very general instructions and forced to rewrite answers over and over again until “an acceptable” version is completed. In this way, the tendency to seek to understand and satisfy the interrogator’s wishes [my bolding] is fostered.

West Australian Premier Mark McGowan will introduce strict new rules before the end of the year that mean those not vaccinated against Covid-19 will not be able to attend concerts, eat in restaurants and watch live sport from the stands.

The measures could extend to flights — both domestic and international, the Premier said Monday.

“It will be either late this year or sometime earlier next year,” Mr McGowan said.

“I can’t put a precise date on it, where we will have those measures in place.”

He said all West Australians will have the “opportunity to get vaccinated” before the measures are introduced.

It follows scathing comments from the Premier towards Prime Minister Scott Morrison who he accused of abandoning the national plan of opening up at 80 per cent vaccination coverage to reopen instead when it suits NSW.

Big Tech Protests Texas Law Calling for Transparency and Appeals of Censorship (13 Sep)

After hissing and booing Florida’s Big Tech law which had the temerity to tell the leftist monopolies that banning politicians was election interference, they’re losing their minds over Texas’ Big Tech law which treats the industry giants as common carriers if they have 50 million users in the United States. It also asks for small things such as transparency and an appeals process for those who are censored.

Churches can’t stop patients’ deaths
Faith-based hospitals will not be able to deny entry to outside ­doctors to help terminally ill ­patients die after the Queensland government rejected pleas by the churches.

Firstly, will this mean that religious institutions will shut down faith-based hospitals? If so, I don’t blame them.

Secondly, what is the LNP in QLD saying and doing about this travesty or is it just the usual silence and acquiescence from them because they’re….as always….to shit scared and spineless to actually speak up about something?

Thirdly…..memo to the spineless, craven federal Liberals…where’s that federal religious freedom bill?

Footage on the noos this morning.

A couple of ladeeee policey girls (LPGs) from NSW encounter Mr X on the street. The LPGs will never make the Australian chick basketball team, but that’s all right because Mr X also appears to be a midget.

Mr X is delivering some knees to the midsection of LPG 1, MMA-style (without the usual effect), while LPG 2 stands back and watches from ten or twelve feet away. Presumably at this point, LPG 2 is resorting to screeching as a defensive mechanism as no equipment is being used against Mr X, let alone any lefts or rights.

Mr X then runs away, and the viewer is then informed that he is pinched around the corner and down a bit. I will make the assumption that bloke cops over 5 foot 3 completed this task. Mr X then apparently plays up like a secondhand lawn mower at the station and is binned.

Someone from the brass then does a presser, where he intones ‘no police officer expects this when they go to work’.

Well if they don’t, they fucking should because like it or not that’s part of the job. If you are not prepared to a) wear the occasional decent smack in the chops while removing a piece of shit from normal people, and b) convincingly win that particular melee, then you can go and find another line of work where others won’t have to continually do your job for you.

Two scenarios – one, Mr X is a proper crook and the LPGs wanted to arrest a violent piece of shit, which is their job and they should expect to be belted while doing it.

Two, Mr X was not wearing a mask or something and was double-covid-Karened by the LPGs, in which case they should also expect to be belted while doing it.

Faith-based hospitals will not be able to deny entry to outside ­doctors to help terminally ill ­patients die after the Queensland government rejected pleas by the churches for institutional protection from the widest voluntary assisted dying law to go before an Australian parliament.

The legislation leaves the private, church-backed institutions that provide more than a quarter of all hospital beds in Queensland powerless to intervene if a patient who qualifies for VAD and is too ill to be moved elsewhere insists on being assessed and potentially dosed with death-dealing drugs on the premises.

The bill approved on Monday by state cabinet notionally gives individual health workers and institutions the capacity to opt out of the assisted dying scheme – except in cases when it would cause unnecessary suffering to transfer the ­patient concerned to another centre, a loophole that has been seized on by church leaders to argue they will be roped into the program.

Some ministers at Monday’s cabinet discussion wanted the churches’ push for a right of conscientious objection addres­sed. Instead, cabinet agreed the legislation would remain intact and be augmented by clinical guidelines setting out how the VAD was to interact with the faith-based hospital and care sector.

Annastacia Palaszczuk’s government resisted pressure to follow the lead of South Australia and include an all-encompassing right of institutional conscientious objection giving faith-aligned hospitals, hospices and aged-care homes legal standing to refuse entry to anyone associated with VAD.

The numbers in the single-chamber Queensland parliament, where the government commands a five-seat majority, mean the legislation to be debated from Tuesday will pass the conscience vote Ms Palaszczuk has called.

Not one Labor MP has signalled an intention to vote no, while the two Green MPs and Noosa independent Sandy Bolton support VAD. Three Gold Coast Liberal National Party parliamentarians – Michael Hart, Sam O’Connor and Rob Molhoek – have said they supported assisted dying, which would easily offset potential Labor waverers such as Logan MP Linus Power, who has expressed reservations about the measure.

LNP leader David Crisafulli is yet to declare his position, but his deputy and legal affairs spokesman, David Janetzki, is set to move amendments to the bill, granting institutions the capacity to conscientiously object.

Catholic Health Australia’s mission director, Rebecca Burdick Davies, said she was disappointed that a “flawed bill” had been retained after several rounds of talks with Deputy Premier Steven Miles, who had carriage of it for the government.

“He’s well aware of the shortcomings of this bill which purport to offer choice but in fact deny it. Guidelines will always fall short of legislation,” Ms Burdick Davies said on Monday.

St Vincent’s Health Australia, a Catholic provider that runs private hospitals at Kangaroo Point and Chermside in Brisbane, last month raised concern about staff being forced to witness voluntary assisted dying if the bill stood.

“If passed in its current form, doctors and nurse practitioners will be able to enter Queensland hospitals – unaccredited by the hospital, unannounced, without permission – and assist patients in their premature death,” chief executive Toby Hall has warned.

In a second-reading speech to be delivered on Tuesday to state parliament, Mr Miles will say the rules “specifically addresses” each of the issues raised by church leaders including Catholic Archbishop of Brisbane Mark Coleridge. These would provide “further comfort to them”, Mr Miles will tell the house.

The guidelines are yet to be ­finalised, but would require VAD doctors to inform private hospitals they were visiting and consult with in-house medical staff about whether the terminal patient could be moved to one that ­embraced voluntary euthanasia.

The guidelines would also canvass ways to minimise the ­impact on other patients – or residents in the case of nursing homes – and means by which faith-based care centres could ­advertise their objection to VAD.

In June, Liberal-governed South Australia became the first state to extend conscientious ­objection from individual doctors to faith-based hospitals, allowing them to refuse to authorise or permit “any part” of the VAD process.

State laws in Victoria, Western Australia and Tasmania are largely silent on institutional conscientious objection.

The Queensland legislation goes further than other states in extending eligibility for VAD to the terminally ill who have a diagnosed life expectancy of 12 months, up from six months in the other jurisdictions, save for those with neurodegenerative conditions.

The proposed Queensland law also allows doctors to raise with patients the option of assisted dying and for nurse practitioners to deliver the lethal dose – not available in the benchmark Victorian scheme that came into ­effect in 2019. WA’s program ­became operational in July.

To be eligible, a person must be a Queensland resident older than 18, and have been diagnosed with a disease that is advanced, progressive and expected to cause death within 12 months.

I believe that Covid won’t kill or harm me, and that vaccines won’t stop the largely harmless ‘rona nor the tyrannical behaviour of governments. That being said, I’ve just had my first vaccination. Here’s why.

I am currently working in France. Here I am a second class citizen because they have vaccine passports. I have just the workplace, chemist and supermarket available to me. I was supposed to be flying home to Perth this week, however due to the pathetic Premiers and the gormless Prime Minister who have halved flights into Australia, my flight has been delayed three months.

My mate, also from Perth, has had his flight delayed a few days and is being sent to quarantine in Adelaide. Who knows what McClown will do regarding the border before he flies back home. The dickhead has previously turned Adelaide flights back from Perth airport after someone catches a cold in South Australia while the plane was in flight.

My wife who is from Sydney, will spend her second Christmas away from me, because last year when I was also working in France (a planned trip), the government wouldn’t let her out of East Germany Australia with me. McClown also wouldn’t let her go to Sydney to visit her son or siblings. Same again this year.

Despite the mixed messages coming from various politicians around Australia, vaccine passports are coming. The process has already started. If you want to travel in future, you will need one.

I have faced the fact that we anti-vaccers have lost and have joined the ranks of the weak and gullible.

Perfectly said.

But just watch the LNP fold and go along with this. This relates to my thread that I uploaded about the hollow men and women in the federal and state Liberal and National parties….they just end up acquiescing with everything Labor and the Greens put forward. Once upon a time there would have been big demonstrations against this…..state sanctioned murder. This is Nazism.

Sorry to hear of your awful situation, Jupes. What a mess-up hotel quarantine is, and the very idea of quarantining us forever from the rest of the world was and still is more than stupid, it is a failure of vision and forward planning. A degree of home quarantine with light supervision would have been a better option from the start, of the sort we did in late March 2020. Ok, a few may not comply, but that would have let Covid slowly spread through our community and it would have been much more handlable than the Great Australian Unexposed Populace we are faced with now under the elimination policy and hence the urgent vaxx push. If normal viral spread and population resistance had been allowed to develop, fewer people may have been pushed, as you have been, to vaxx when they really didn’t want to and our cultural norms of freedom may not have been so severely abused either.

Re Covid not being much of a threat – well maybe it is not in overall terms, but when it does grab you it can still be very nasty. I’ve read enough personal accounts of this, and talked to British friends about their own experiences, to know that. Anyone over 50 can be caught out. Younger ones only occasionally. Some younger nurses who have had very high exposures have died in Britain, but again, numbers there are low. Still, when it’s someone you love, it still counts a lot and is something that you might want them to avoid – and at any age. And to avoid yourself. Hence I am glad there is a vaxx of sorts for those who feel at risk, as I do. I’d like a better vaxx to be developed though, and I expect that will happen. It should always be accepted on a voluntary basis though. Never any compulsion. An attenuated viral vaxx would be far more popular anyway than less than fully tested mRNA ones.
