why has army been called in to vaccinate,
drive ambulances
& HGVs

why is the govt desperately trying to recruit teachers who've left / retired

reducing the self isolation period from 10 to 7 days

asking hospitals to prepare for mass casualty events next month
how are hospitals going to separate out #Omicron from #Delta patients, given both can infect you at the same time - they are *separate* variants

we don't need a #Delta #Omicron super variant where the *supposed* mild #Omicron combines with the deadlier #Delta variant!!!!!!!
I could really go on, but I just can't

oh, except to say

why the *fuck* aren't all hospital staff being issued with FPP3 masks

who will care for us, if 50% of hospital staff end up isolating 2 weeks from now, when everyone rings 999 after xmas mixing

Another terrifying article from @BylineTimes

Scientific Racism
Nazi Eugenics (currently happening under the guise of COVID in my opinion - in plain sight) Image
we desperately need to rid ourselves of the current govt & cabinet. They are platforming and employing academic KKK! FFS... Image
yesterday I complained about BOJO's xmas message re boosters for Christians, as earlier in the day the media reported how the Pakistani community is less than 55% vaccinated, today I read this:…

Schools return soon. The European CDC & US CDC have suggested enhanced mitigations in schools due to the delta variant but the UK is going the opposite way. Why this British exceptionalism again @10DowningStreet @GavinWilliamson @CMO_England @educationgovuk? Thread 1/
So many kids around the world have missed almost 1.5 years of in-person school with terrible consequences. I’m grateful that my daughter has been in class half the time. But the lack of attention to school safety in the UK has been v troubling for me as a parent & academic. 2/
In May, masks were dropped in secondary schools. In July, infections were out of control & almost a million kids were out of school. The UK is currently an outlier amongst high income countries by not vaccinating kids under 16. Come Sept, all mitigations like masks, bubbles 3/

The main Covid strain in the UK is the one that came from India in April.
Boris Johnson's experts told him to put the strictest border controls on all countries in JANUARY.

So ALL the problems we're facing now are because Boris Johnson had 'had enough of experts'.
Don't believe me; just read.

1. Polite notice:
Unfollow me, block me, but don’t troll me just because you can’t ‘win’ an argument with me.

I don’t use this forum to win arguments. I come here to debate and become more informed. And, sometimes, just to engage in idle banter with friends.
2. I have been on Twitter for many years but only become more active over the last couple of years because of the desperate circumstances we find ourselves in. Yes, I am vocal and passionate and sometimes I might use hyperboles and emotive language.
3. But, I try to back up everything I say with evidence from reliable and factual sources. I may not get it right every time, that’s the point of debating. So please don’t get offended if I produce some facts that ride roughshod over your point of view or personal prejudices.

When you are "woke" you are awoken to the fact that a man born into privilege was burning £50 notes in front of homeless people at the same "tender" age as those 3 "lions" who took penalties on Sunday....
Those 3 young men attracted a shitstorm of hate but have earned privilege through talent and hard work and have used some of that privilege to give something back through sport and charity work/philanthropy.
Those lions gave their England earnings to NHS charities whilst a "leader" gave NHS money to his chums and claims freebies as and when he likes. This surely tells you a lot about where we are and what needs fixing. #JohnsonOut #JohnsonVariant #LiarJohnson #EnoughIsEnough

🧵 I think we do have a testing problem.

Across my union networks I'm getting feedback that waits for test results is increasing, also seeing this in one LAs daily school cases update that I get to see.
#edutwitter #JohnsonVariant
Also on the network's the app is pinging more often, but the time to isolate is a lot shorter. Ppl are getting 5 sometimes 3 days to isolate.

I think test and trace is struggling with the case load, means its probably going to get worse
We have a dip in testing, but cases are growing rapidly

These make for interesting reading:

§7 92% vaccine uptake vs 96% - have to assume this is adult and importantly, for at least a week it has looked like we will top out at around 90%

High instability because w/o vaccinating children, you have reservoir susceptible


§8 PCR testing capacity is 578k per day and may be exceeded in period of high prevalence lasting until the end of August.


So that is why they are ramping up testing.

Expecting more than 578k tests a day... Image

§9 risk of high prevalence leading to the emergence of new variant explicitly acknowledged.

Through mechanism of high prevalence + high levels of vaccination.

Significant risk to UK + other countries if it happens.

We predicted this wave, everything is going according to plan

If schools going back is such an issue for removing other restrictions why don't they do something about it like ventilation or vaccination?

#edutwitter #DowningStreetBriefing #JohnsonVariant
What they are really saying is

"We have to go now because in September we plan on letting the virus rip through as many children as possible in hope of blunting a winter wave a few months later"

"Why are we doing this? Well one factor is the vaccine programme is starting to struggle, asking for help would expose this so to save face we will sacrifice peoples health"

Bottles & missiles thrown in Leicester Sq

At least it’s happening in London rather than some other European capital

If #England win or lose, it might be wise to stay clear of Trafalgar Sq / central London tonight
#ENGITA #EnglandvsItaly #ENG  #EURO2020 
Ystdy, an #England “fan” revealed the hotel where the #ITA team were staying & tweeted

“If #Italy’s hotel isn’t kept up all night by fire alarms & fireworks on Saturday I’ll be massively let down”

This is what happened👇

Incredibly important discussion. Govt's failing mass infection strategy is based on libertarian ideology, not a prudent plan. @TheLancet @allthecitizens #JohnsonVariant #LongCovidKids
Hospitals already struggling. Record breaking attendances. Cancer operations being cancelled. ICUs filled with #COVID19 patients.
100 000 cases per day putting #NHS under incredible pressures. Vulnerable patients not being heard. @sajidjavid does not mention them. As if they don't exist. Abhorrent @doctor_oxford @Conservatives - is this the legacy you want to leave the future? #LongCovidKids @chilterns4

Where did #KremlinCarrie send those elephants?
Did she just pocket them?
Does Johnson need them to ride into London?
Was she confused cuz she used to work with ocean charity? They were really whales? Hid them cuz she thot they were Wales? (Trump)
Did #KremlinCarrie get confused with her book club? And there are 13 copies about Eleanor Oliphant which are NOT fine, as they are at a bus stop in Kent?

Did #KremlinCarrie actually send 13 donors on a cruise instead of the elephants?
Are there 13 new Tory donors with suspiciously long noses?

I think we must understand it is worse than we thought. Our govt is deliberately fuelling the pandemic. Goal of hybrid immunity policy is to expose our unvaccinated children to #COVID19. To 60% more transmissive Delta variant
#LongCovidKids @chilterns4…
A conscious policy design to accelerate the virus through the bodies of our children. No isolation for kids, no free lateral flow tests, forced back to work, no mandatory masks, no payment support. Scandalous generational burden of permanent scarring. @Conservatives @sajidjavid
Why? Because they have failed to keep us safe with proper #COVID19 infrastructure. Because #JohnsonVariant could not resist strongman Modi. Because ideology must come first: people last. Hallmarks of a degenerate regime #LongCovidKids

In a few tweets, let me explain the #JohnsonVariant

For 3 weeks they denied ⬇️ virus AND admissions growth


Now, (from @LBC), we know the plan


Josef Mengele eat all our hearts out

Is this proven science?
Is the risk they are taking justifiable?

Like a cult of satanists, it's the third time they've used the #JohnsonDoctrine. Twice before they failed.

Which times?
1. First you. March 2020
2. Then kids
The first time is why #Johnson failed to close airports
and why NHS was unprepared.
They wanted the virus to spread

The FT, amongst others, estimate that decision to have
cost over 40,000 innocent lives.

That's not a guess - we have the genetic proof ⬇️
