]benny itís just 2 weeks to stop the spread .

you apply the treatment until it works

Make sure you wear a mask entering a restaurant  but drink and eat with it off for 2 hours .

You should sit at a table some distance from other tables while doing that.

Sit on a packed plane for 10 hours but donít allow many go to church even with masks.

A plane is an engineered environment with specified ventilation standards.

Donít get in your own car on your own and drive past 5km , very dangerous.

The drive is not dangerous, but it reduces the range of people you come into contact with.

Vaccinate your 5 year old because we need to see if it works and find out side effects
Vaccinate your 5 year old so that he does not spread the disease to you or his granny.

Quote
Take a booster because the first 2 doses you got in the last 6 months didnít work and be ready for several more boosters of same vaccine

It does work, nothing lasts forever and in this case it is better safe than sorry.

Quote
We have huge % of population vaccinated but the small % of unvaccinated are to blame for 10 times cases we had when we had no vaccine and if you disagree youíre a right wing loon

The unvaccinated are both more likely to spread the disease and are making up more than half of those in ICU, their delinquent actions are clearly a problem.

North Board U19 final Dunmore v Claregalway. Penalty shoot out, firmly hit penalty hits crossbar and shoots up in the air, goalkeeper rushes out cheering and the ball drops back out of the sky, bounces sideways into net!

Is there any merit in Liverpool replacing their usual Richard Rodgers number for the 1980s tune "walk like an Egyptian"? Get the Bangles over to sing at half time.

In older versions of Word, captions on images were locked to the image and moved with it.

Now in the current version of Word, if you change an image position to tight with text, the caption drifts away. Bastardos.

Word hasn't added any useful features in the last 20 years since Word for Windows 2.
Put the image and the caption in a table with two rows and one column.

I'm waiting for to see what happens? There is a melt down on the way. Because of the failure of these vaccines less will take the useless booster the next time around. Covid Certs will have the same worth as Eircom Shares.

''The Emperor has no clothes''

This is dangerous nonsense. These are some of the best vaccines ever designed and the booster is a having very effective results in Israel and it is not yet clear how long the booster will last. There are 90 vaccines under development and this work will improve the vaccine further, either in its performance, in its longevity or in the ability to give to everyone easily.

I was never sure why the ROI stopped publishing covid death stats (no doubt a political decision) but it should be the best deterrent / publicity for Covid compliance - 63 Covid deaths in the past week. That should be an eye opener for a lot of people.
155 Covid deaths in September and that could rise further yet due to backdating.

If we have 155 dying in September, a month when we should be seeing one of the lowest totals for the whole year, that's a big problem. Averaged out over a year that's 1,800. And it's not going to stay near that average over the winter.
Numbers are high given that Covid activity is low from April to now.
I can't see nightclubs staying open. The key numbers are free ICU beds and % unvaccinated.
shouldn't increasing emergency icu bed capacity  have been a  priority for any government for the last year and a half ? Doing nothing and then saying we donít have enough canít be a valid government policy while they pay out billions for other ďpriorities ď

ICUs all have surge beds in an attempt to deal with this, have been in place since April / May last year. Where do you suppose the specialist staff come from to man these new beds?

Some people seem to think you can miracle up a load of qualified medical staff. Because of the pandemic those that are there are likely to leave because they are operating above capacity.

Perhaps they reckon that the vaccine certs will get a few thousand more youths to get the jab and the rest will get Covid out of the way before Xmas and the worst of the flu season.

One hundred years ago there were three concerns for unionists; King and Empire; Money and Religion.

Now King and Empire can't be helped and to be honest one the present Monarch pass on the monarchy may not be worth much. Religion was always overrated, but things have changed enormously there.
On Money, there were two issues, a loss of trade possibilities and a fear of anyone with a few pound being heavily taxed . The trade thing is not a problem, there will be ample opportunity to make a living in the UI. However the demeanour of the main nationalist party in the North is that anyone who does work and earns a few quid will be heavily taxed. Now as people are poor in the North these may mostly be in the south, so the calculation is different.

I think it would be very interesting to show how much the Union has cost Unionists since 1950 . In 1950s Unionists were laughing at the South.
In the UK since 1980 peripheral regions have been shafted. Brexit is another kick in the nuts.


NI has not recovered its 2008 economy, like most parts of the UK. The only two parts of these islands to have significantly moved on beyond 2008 levels is London and the ROI.

I think when it comes to it, the majority of people will vote based on economics and health. Will they be better off financially and will they get better health care in a UI.

Economics will not cause Unionists to vote for a united Ireland. The 26 counties was an economic basket case for a long time and yet there was never any thought of trying to rejoin the UK.

If you think they would vote on economics try a little thought experiment. Imagine Brexit is a great success (yes I know, but humour me). The Tories manage to create an off shore tax haven booming economy and the North ends up more successful than the south. Do you think there would be any great push for the 26 to rejoin the UK?

Of course out and out unionists will not be swayed by any data like this, but the rest of the population will. Hard core Unionists are not in the majority in NI, most people are nationalist or are capable of being persuaded.

They originally stopped because the computer hack fecked up their system and then they decided not to start again. One problem is that they were not reporting the deaths promptly, something they should have fixed last April. Deaths have risen and the 26 counties is gradually approaching the North in death rate. I think the booster jabs will put a ceiling on the deaths though.

A lot of people in the 6 counties are more focussed on cheap healthcare than good healthcare.

There would be a lot available from the EU and USA for it though, a lot of well-disposed goodwill towards it.

There would be some money available, but there is a limit to the extent to which taxpayers in Germany or New Jersey should be expected to fund NI. Success requires that the British make a reasonable settlement in regard to pensions etc and that the economy in NI grows to to be more like the 26 counties. It is in the interest of the British to do this, but as we have seen recently they are quite capable of acting irrationally and there is a risk of playing tough on NI to avoid encouraging Scotland.

Any chance you would stop trying to shape everything around your world view?

Explanation is maybe quite simple i.e. fewer at risk vaccinated.

But could really do with some more info before drawing inferences.

Mortality by vaccination status and age group a good start.

Certainly does nothing to substantiate calls by sickos to vaccinate children and healthy young adults to protect them or pacify their fears.

Get a grip

It is sick.

We were blessed that this virus does not have any great impact on children.

What have we done with that blessing?

Smashed their education, their social development, their levels of fitness, their mental health etc.

And now we have a band of massive weirdos wanting to vaccinate them to mainly protect the old and frail, those unlucky with health and those who have not looked after themselves.

Sorry but I make absolutely no apologies for use of the word sickos.

Totally counter intuitive to human nature.

Children would rather have a 2 second jab than do without a sibling, parent or grandparent who happens to to "unlucky with health".

Perhaps if they were better informed they would have made different choices.

They were, we all told them to get vaccinated but they did not.

And to think we have people shouting for vaccination of children to protect adults.  Aside from being completely counter intuitive for humans to use children as a shield it is the adults themselves, in most cases, who could protect themselves.

It is proper for society to act to protect the vulnerable, whether they be adults or children.
