The rules or the interpretation of the rules is off when it comes to this.

If there is Covid at home the kid can still come to school until such times as they test positive. How is that not going to do anything other than encourage the spread.

Regardless of which side your on ... I reckon this is worth 30 minutes of anyones time even if its just to test their own current beliefs about this whole hashter (including how they perceive 'the other side')

Quote
Paul Kingsnorth sees the vaccine wars as symptomatic of a bigger division between two fundamentally different world views: he calls them “thesis” and “antithesis.” When it comes to Covid, “thesis” is the establishment viewpoint: that lockdowns are needed to contain the virus, masks work, vaccines are safe, and people who question them are wrongheaded or worse. When Covid-19 first struck, Kingsnorth took the “thesis” viewpoint.

But over the last few months, his perspective changed. As he  in today’s UnHerd, the crystallising moment arrived when he woke up to the news that the Austrian government had ‘interned an entire third of the population’. This move, he writes, sent a ‘chill down my spine’.

The “antithesis” view can be summed up as: lockdowns are not needed, masks do not work, the safety and efficacy of the vaccines are being oversold, vaccine passports will not only fail but further segregate society, and in the near future we can expect Giradian scapegoating of the unvaccinated. In other words, we are positioned on the precipice of a slippery slope that leads towards increasingly draconian biopolitical control measures, the grip of which is unlikely to release even once the pandemic is over.

In a conversation with Freddie Sayers on this week’s UnHerdTV, he explains this division and the bigger epistemological divides it reveals. “People are arguing about vaccines,” he says, “but they’re really under the surface arguing about what kind of person you are if you have taken these things, whether you’re a good or a bad person, or clean or unclean one”.

In Kingsnorth’s view, each of us has a line that cannot be crossed. And his has now been reached.

Thanks for posting that up. He was able to articulate his thoughts, ideas and arguments in a way i could never do.

Kind of the way the BBC reported the Holy Cross saga as a dispute.

It's the same type of appeasement instead of telling the truth of what these incidents were and what people had to endure at the hands of these nut cases.

Is this not a case again of soccer clubs standing with their hands out waiting for tax payers to provide them with facilities?

Why if they want somewhere of 'their own' do they not fund raise and go and buy somewhere?

This attitude from soccer clubs of all hues of pure entitlement needs to be changed. Goes right from the top through the game, expecting tax payers to fund their past times.

Getting fed up to the back teeth on here and other social media outlets of this debate.

You can have an opinion about absolutely anything that is a basic right, but you know what they say about opinions.

This anti-fact shit started with Trump, just basically making stuff up for idiots to believe.

If you do not have a medical background, or are an expert on vaccines or pandemics, then shut the F**k up, posting and re-posting articles with no understanding of them, their origin or their authenticity is helping no one.

Fearful of the Chelsea match at the weekend being honest, they are at the opposite end of the scale confidence and organisation wise. I will be happy to see a fighting performance regardless of the score (within reason) the reason for the Liverpool and City defeats being so hard to take was that lack of fight.

To be fair there were signs of it on Tuesday evening but this is a test on a different level to that.

Not just Luckhurst pushing this one, insiders in PSG have made no secret they want Zidane, so there could be a compromise reached pretty quick as Zidane is available straight away.

Poch has talked about a project at PSG but has no control over it as Leonardo calls the shots.

If there is a bigger project out there than United at the moment I dont know where it is.

Poch has been a target in the past and it just hasnt worked out. I think it would be a decent appointment, all the rumours going about are that he wants more say on the football side of things at PSG but won't get them.

I wouldn't see anything wrong with him coming in and having full say on the football side of things at United, as there doesnt seem to be anyone else capable of making coherent decisions.

Looking at Cargin they made an academy about 20 years ago purely to put emphasis on youth as whether your an u6 new start or a Kieran close your treated equally, always compete at all grades and fair play to them, hard work from top ex senior players on every age group also, been at top at senior level now going on 40+ years, that's no accident, it takes everyone, Creggan been the same for a long time also, Men and Woman giving up their free time to forward the club on to another level, fact is it's not all about the senior team, that's were alot of other clubs fail.there is no quick fix.

So can someone tell me why a club with this level of organisation and obvious commitment from serious ex players, not able to get a club man to manage their senior team.

Surely there is a neglect then on the development of coaches within the club if they are unable to do so.

A wonderful club and a credit to their members and community. I wish them every success.

I don’t think you are going to convince anyone that they don’t pay a manager though.

The crux of it is whether it is acceptable or cheating I suppose.

Or acceptable cheating.

You gotta meet our esteemed treasurer......then you will.understand.....not a chance.

Been about here a long time and can assure you Cargin club do not provide 'expense' to any outside management....

Fact..!

CB that argument might wash a little better had your previous manager not have been who he was  ;)

Going to tell you again......Cargin club, do not provide payment/expenses to any of their vast array of management.

Come and meet the treasurer and be convinced.

We don't need to meet anyone, yes Cargin club do not provide payment to a manager directly, but sponsors of the club/ members meet that particular bill on the side. Monies which ultimately could be used for a different function within the club.

The club pay it/ members pay it, it's no difference it is all money from the same community being used to pay an individual.

Dance around it any way you like, doesn't change the basic facts.

Wow things have taken a turn for the worse when some one comes in here and is posting The Spectator.

I think when you are turning to that rag it is time to take a look at yourself and maybe just not in relation to Covid either.

sinn fein will probably back passports because the dup might block them  but if dup vote for them then sinn fein might go against them so they can play off each other

No. SF have always said they'd be in favour of them because it's the bloody sensible thing to do. I believe all the parties bar DUP/TUV are backing them.

This whole "they're as bad as each other" narrative is a very lazy analysis.


did sinn fein not  vote against or abstain in the south

SF voted against them in the South.

lol I canny wait until people realise what fork tongued wishy washy dicks SF are.

To them its about 2 things

Vote against DUP
Vote against FF/FG

Gimps

The wonderful thing is about your statement (leaving SF out of it) if you followed your own advice there I doubt you would be too far wrong on many things going against the DUP FF & FG  :)

Just saying like  ;D
