We're the only country doing single doses, of course, so that rather flatters our numbers as some of the new inoculations would be going into the arms of earlier injectees by now.

I heard a news report yesterday that some vaccine centres are being forced to throw some vaccines away as there aren't enough people turning up and the vaccines have a short shelf life.
If that's the case why aren't they offering to vaccinate anyone who's walking past,it seems mad to me :?

Yes, I heard that some places had been doing that, absolutely ridiculous and a sad waste. I believe they have been told to stop.

I emailed my health practice last week suggesting that I can be there in double quick time if they have spare doses left at the end of the day. I haven't heard back and I won't be holding my breath for the text message, but you never know your luck.

So we've had a year to plan this.

And we're still ******* it up.

I would be fired (or better put, my contract ended).

I hope the medics do the right thing.

Exactly!
Two morons among many in the cabinet!



Yesterday I was suddenly struck by the uncanny resemblance between Raab and Simon Cadell, of Hi-de-Hi fame, who would undoubtedly have made a much better fist of the FS job. Googled it, and was disappointed to find it's well known.

Well with Jenrick's piece in the telegraph today it seems they're doubling down on the trumpian culture war. The US might be rid of this for a bit, we only seem to be getting going sadly.

Yep it'll be a long time until there's even a chance of regaining any kind of sanity in this country,meanwhile for next three years there's a blue bull running amok in the china shop that is the UK.

Is Trump mad?

He is going to get even more mad as Biden has promised to reverse a number of his pet ''achievements' on day one (rejoin Paris agreement, where possible reconnect children removed from immigrant parents, make wearing face masks compulsory abolish travel bans).
