Re: George Floyd death: Protesters tear down slave trader statue

Given the recent prominence of police killing a handcuffed black man, people are saying that a black man was justifiably killed because he resisted being handcuffed?


WTFlip?

Re: George Floyd death: Protesters tear down slave trader statue

If only these social justice warriors had looked a bit closer at the criminal history of George Floyd, they may not have been so quick to start rioting. The fact that he had timed served for offences was an excuse that justifies murdering him? Or invalidates protests against this murder as a contin...

Re: George Floyd death: Protesters tear down slave trader statue

And with a statue all you have to do is relocate it to a museum with a new plaque explaining its history and context. The Colston one, ideally will be left with any damage or graffiti as part of its story. The original site should be occupied with something to celebrate something or someone the com...

Just fit a big sock over your head or wear a balaclava?

Re: C19 - Ending The Lockdown

Err,no what gave you that idea? :? Because it did look like you were decrying the idea of "herd immunity"? Yet the establishment of a herd immunity is precisely what is being aimed at when we vaccinate as a program to eliminate diseases from the human population and is the basis of why we...

Re: C19 - Ending The Lockdown

It’s nice to hear the term ‘herd immunity’ it’s a zoological / farming term, applied to how viruses propagate in groups of animals. Humans are a lot more complicated, herd immunity may not actually ever happen in human populations. As long as people realise that the virus is in charge of this situa...

Re: Anybody had the virus?

Possibly flu yes, thats exactly what it felt like, the longest illness ever for me. I am hoping to be able to find out if I have had it and whether I have immunity.
