If the information provided by Cummings in the BBC interview is accurate, I am not sure many people would be happy that it is acceptable to Boris for older people to die from Covid

Likely accurate but now historic in that more recent deaths don't appear to be mainly among the elderly and people are still reacting to whatever the BBC says they should day by day.  Yesterday's outrage is easy forgotten it seems when replaced by today's headline.

There was a major upgrade a few days ago .

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

'upgrade is debatable and disputable

 

 

oh parting gift for hightail - as much as is currently known and estimated ... from the Oxford crew

 

Results: Higher levels of all immune markers were correlated with a reduced risk of symptomatic infection.

{yer dont say sherlock}

 

Vaccine efficacy of 80% against primary symptomatic COVID-19 was achieved with an antibody level of

40923 (95% CI: 16748, 125017) and 63383 (95% CI: 16903, not computed (NC)) for anti-spike and anti-RBD,

and 185 (95% CI: NC, NC) and 247 (95% CI: 101, NC) for pseudo- and live-neutralisation assays respectively. 

 

Antibody responses did not correlate with overall protection against asymptomatic infection.

 


Conclusions: nowt but blah blah blah

 

Note

Yet to be peer reviewed but opinions:

I suppose they're trying to get some money back which is good in one way. But why aren't they getting it back from the cronies, oops, suppliers who provided the dodgy PPE?

Russian junior trade negotiator rings:

Hey UK - now you have given Australia such a good deal at your countries expense, as you said before, under WTO rules you must allow our imports with no tariffs

 

UK (After 3 days looking for someone who had a clue):

Err no we don't that is a specific trade deal where we only have to give Australia all those benefits

 

Russian junior trade negotiator:

So now you suddenly want to apply the actual rules eh?

NHS staff 3% pay rise will come at cost to other services, No 10 says

The Government has confirmed that there will be no new money to fund the 3% pay rise for NHS staff in England, and the health secretary has been told to find £1.5bn of savings to fund the NHS pay rise, despite criticism that it will mean cuts to other services.

 

Lets all hope its by Johnson the reneger reneging on paying serco Dido and pals for the Test how much we can rip tax payers off for farce.

£37Bllion should go a fair way toward covering the real NHS's expenses.

Then he can renege on paying for the duff ppe - thats another £100Billion towards it isnt  it?

The reported reductions in infections is interesting - for all the wrong reasons - given no real scientist can explain it

 

Here's a few thoughts

 

First, the obvious - we expect a reduction in infections because its summer and people are outside more and its quite clear the infections spread far more indoors or in large crowds

 

Second, also obvious - the more people vaccinated, the less spread - we just dont seem to know in any detail how much  or against which strains

 

Now perhaps the less obvious,

* School Kids aren't being tested - but they are outdoors more - but effectively mixing less compared to classrooms

* There has been a significant shortage of lft tests - so less tests

 

 

Now things that I've not been seeing reported, although I have almost utterly lost faith in all the UK reporting

LFT's are best at catching significantly symptomatic infections, and the vaccines do reduce symptomatic infection quite significantly perhaps 60% or more - but thats 60%+ of infected people walking around unknowing - even after lfts.

I've seen this myself with experienced people testing neg on regular testing with LFT's - starting to feel ill and testing positive with PCR and those they have been in close contact with also testing positive via PCR after ALL getting negs with regular LFTs.

None of those I am aware of are as yet seriously ill.

 

That seems to define a vast number of people walking around, asymptomatic, not caught by LFT's, but still infectious, would be caught by PCR's and clearly speeding even in controlled environments - so imagine whats happening in shops/supermarkets where more have stopped wearing masks etc.

 

- and we know infections=mutations

The gov MUST know this. I'm seeing it reported in local hospitals and nursing homes

The vaccine is actually reducing the already limited effectiveness of LFT's in flagging spreadable infections. So both an expected  boon and a un-stated (so far) risk

I'm baffled too, TJ, but it's certainly too early to draw conclusions on what's happening.

 

I did see that there are a lot of cases in people who have come into hospital for non-covid related treatment without symptoms but have tested positive. Someone said it could show that the vaccines are reducing the severity of the virus but it still means you've got untested asymptomatic people who are positive wandering around freely.

I cant think of any other explanation and it does mean the virus is spreading, transmitting and mutating.

I understand some of the lockdown restriction removal, but removing mask and distance is just madness, but I suppose people were heading that way anyway with Johnson and crews antics and messaging.

 

Oh and our local Morrisons, mismanged as it is, removed the one way entry/exit system months ago and re-implemented the bottleneck eveyone past tables of sugary pastries etc .. and each other

 

Tesco haven't - they've maintained the seperate in/out

I know. You've got Johnson telling everyone to 'be careful' without spelling out what that means, but it'll be 'the people's' fault if it goes wrong.

 

And then there are ministers and right and left wing commentators bragging about throwing away their masks and not 'cowering' when faced with the virus. As if covid is listening to people who want to tough it out.

Sick to death of getting uh oh broken link page everytime I click on last page of a thread or even some actual links, let alone browser coming to grinding stalls everytime this site is accessed necessitating shutdown and restart of browser (new and old when it worked) after leaving this site to get them working properly elsewhere again - causing stalls typos and allsorts.

Extraordinary sum reveals PPE cost pressures and raises fears of forced labour in overseas factories

 

 

So who thinks the UK could build a factory , employ UK people and make more for just £1Billion or less, and no doubt have many spare to be able to sell abroad to improve our trade balance and maybe even a small return on the investment instead of a total loss?

Of course that flies in the face of the populist ethos of giving middlemen cronies and donies millions for FA and would require them to invest in the UK rather than a tax haven ...

new variant vaccines are unlikely to change my opinion unless one comes out that is truly  a 'rock star'

Even NYT is saying that the EU has overtaken the US in percentage of population inoculated, and France and Germany are maintaining vaccination/test/mask/space requirements that the UK has thrown to the wind

 

 

Interesting that Israel is offering a third Pfiser vaccine to over 60's

 

WWW.DW.COM

Such a large-scale booster campaign is a world-first. Health officials are worried that the vaccine's efficacy reduces over time, but some critics...

 

So from what I understand:

* All vaccines effectiveness reduces over time, more against infection and transmission than protection against death/severe illness it seems

 

* O/AZ Antibodies are vastly lower and reduce faster than with pfiser - lower at peak than pfiser after 6 months from what I can see, and reduce most in older folk and those immune compromised (hence some of the figures from aids epidemic Africa)

 

* There are some (unconfirmed as far as I can see) claims that the O/AZ vaccine generates more T-cell response than mRNA vaccines

 

So still seems to me that anyone who had O/AZ vaccine doses needs an mRNA vaccine as a booster,

and its perhaps worth examining if those who have had a pfiser, and are in generally good health should be offered an O/AZ as a booster and whether that should be recommended. 

 

 

oh and I still cant understand why the UK is more OK with people coming in with delta/delta+ on the increase and NOT those with beta .. when with the rest of the world its more the opposite ... despite that the O/AZ vaccine seems even less effective against the beta than the delta which all vaccines have lower effectiveness against..
