So, Sir Kier has broke ranks & sided with the science.

Must admit, it's a massive gamble by the government to finally ignore the science & go their own way with the local lockdowns.

This could go either way. If they get on top of the situation, then they will be heroes. However, if cases continue to rise, then it will be impossible for them to argue their case.

Interesting few weeks ahead.
They will be criticised whatever they do.

They will be criticised if they get it wrong. And so they should.

I just find it interesting that we now have an opposition who would go in a different direction (the end of all this hysterical Mr Hindsight tag).

The government have followed the science since day one, and although they've made massive cock-ups with track & tracing, PPE, Cummings testing his eye sight without any comeback etc, the stakes have now been raised by going their own way.

It was almost impossible to call them for anything else when they followed science, but now they are taking a massive gamble.

For the record, do you think they should ignore SAGE, or do you think Sir Kier is right?

First post and you have zoomed in on someone spelling Starmer's Christian name wrongly, if you're lost perhaps you should take up rocket science it must be easier for you

It's a very important point Bristle & was obviously the whole crux of my post :wink:

Pulling up someone for a minor spelling error is pretty lame Voodoo! This isn't an English class & you knew exactly what he meant.

If you want to score points on here, I suggest you ditch your smartypants approach & find a decent counter-arguement!

Voodoo is just one of those from the other site who is STILL obsessed with me after 20 months.

I really did leave a mark.

Mind you. Somebody told me about that site now. Take one particular poster off, and they'd have less posts than this board.

Looks like they've shot themselves in the foot. Bless.


Back on topic...

It looks as though a vaccine is getting closer, albeit after Christmas.

Hopefully you are not too far out in your assertion.

She sounds like a weirdo Gaz. I'll personally give her the benefit of the doubt for now, but it's been a shocking start for her in here!

Maybe a crash course in people skills would do the trick!
