Good man, Eamonn, you're one of the best.

Here, however, is one of the worst, a literal waste of oxygen deservedly being torn to shreds. https://www.thepoke.co.uk/2021/01/16/laurence-fox-has-got-himself-a-mask-exempt-badge-7-responses/

It seems some Italian restaurants may be kicking off - #IoOpro.

Awful. I just don’t get what somebody is thinking when they get on like this. Contrarian to the end. More worrying as well to see the number of people jumping in to defend him.

Here in Ireland, according to the Worldometer, the number of new infections has dropped from over 8000 on January the 8th - worse than the worst projections a week prior to that - to less than 1000.  Of course, it shouldn't have got so bad so quickly, but it's something of a relief to see that the new restrictions are working.

Cast your mind back to the first week of May last year, when the UK racked up the worst Covid death total in Europe, a milestone even the Tory-friendly arms of the media couldn't ignore. That was 29,000 total deaths.

We will have racked up 30,000 deaths in January 2021 alone. This is a direct result of not closing the schools months earlier (as the scientists whose work the government claims to be guided by were begging them to do), a half-arsed tier system when a lockdown at least as strict as the one in March '20 was required (and which they still haven't done) and the utterly deranged Christmas relaxation of the rules.

On Jan 1st, epidemiologist Dr Deepti Gurdasani tweeted:

Quote
Unfortunately between 20-25,000 deaths in January are already baked in, given most of those who will die in the next 3-4 weeks have already been infected. But if we don't act now, we'll see many more in February, and the real risk that the NHS will not be able to treat everyone.

People reacted with horror, but that turns out to have been an underestimate. I'm genuinely unable to comprehend why even the staunchest Tory media outlet isn't calling for Johnson's head.

Because he looked very, very sad in that photo. (I mean, let’s then ignore the fact he then said now is not the time to reflect on past mistakes, and nor will the future be, because we’ll just have to get on with things.) But he looked so very sad. The poor man. There’s really nothing more anyone could have done*, because no-one has a crystal ball**.

* except listen to the scientists

** because we have fucking scientists

He might have looked sad but he still didn't deem the situation important enough to comb his fucking hair when speaking to the nation.

New infections here in Ireland are about one-eighth of what they were three weeks ago, and we're still up there with the highest numbers of the two previous spikes.  I really hope next Christmas isn't such a shitshow.

At last, some commonsense and rationality is being introduced to the Covid discussion.  ;)
