    hospitalizations are up according to what I read just now. A couple of weeks ago it was around 6500. Now 8500 tbh I've not been looking much, cos I'm sick of it. Keeping fingers crossed that vaccines hold out and we can avoid further lockdowns etc.

    "Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer said ministers were letting the "security wall against the virus... crumble" and the booster programme was "stalling". But Prof Jeremy Brown, an adviser to the government on vaccines, said Sir Keir's criticism was "not an accurate description of what's going on". "The problem at the moment [is] the people coming to hospital with severe Covid and ending up in intensive care and dying are those who've not had any vaccines," he told BBC Radio 4's PM programme. " (BBC news report 21.10.2021) ,,,,,,,,,,,, mmm. interesting 🤔

    Well it's not really surprising that case numbers are increasing as its pretty much proven that the efficacy of both vaccines wan to around 70% max after around 6 months. I'd say the boosters are going to be essential if the UK wants to avoid another lockdown. Sad as that is. Cases and deaths are creeping up again. Poxy virus can do one. 😡🤬
  5. it's not released yet that's why
  6. Well the beauty of Spotify is you create whatever order you like lol 😆
  7. sounds like it was just the venues & promoters protocols 🤔
  8. http://www.thedarknesslive.com/2021/10/out-with-the-old-in-with-the-new/ ouch .
  9. Agree but even more so. I think that pales against the original imo, which was a bona fide classic
  10. I loved it and I'm not a serious gamer. But then I loved Ready Player One as well (even though it was nowhere near as good as the book). My boys though were blown away. All the commentators were well known you tuber gamers and they were damned excited about that.
  11. neither of these are available anywhere in the UK to stream
  12. No Time to Die. Excellent imo. Best Bond to date. Not sure what comes next but they have HUGE shoes to fill
  13. One of those bands where they have 5-10 incredible singles, absolute classics, but where most of the other album cuts don't measure up. Simple Minds are the same

    except this bit. I will respond to this. I would have preferred our government to be more like yours at the start yes. We ballsed up spectacularly. Probably the worst death rate in the whole world, including the even the US. The only reason we are open is because we had vaccinated virtually our whole population before Australia had even started. Why is that? When you reach your targets you will be open too. Although to say we are living COVID free is a joke. Unless of course you mean 30 000 cases a day and over 100 deaths a day is COVID free? Restriction free yes (mainly), COVID free no.

    I read your post for what its worth but still think you are missing most of the points I am desperately trying to make. So im going to not bother replying. Looks like further restrictions are being lifted on Monday so good luck with it all.

    here you go again with the fear and panic. 😴 gets boring. The only fear and panic I've read throughout this whole thread is about perfectly safe vaccines. Fact. stats are stats - if you choose to ignore them then thats up to you. I simply judge our deaths in ppn to our population and compare to yours. Roughly a third. What part of that is difficult to understand? You seem to think that Australia would somehow have been immune to the virus if you'd just left everything open and not locked down? News for you mate. You wouldn't have been. I get that lockdowns are harsh and yours has been harsher than most - I've acknowledged that - but at least those kids you refer to have still got fathers/mothers and grandparents. There are millions of kids in the UK right now that haven't got a father, mother, grandparent, aunt, uncle, you name it, as a result of this virus. & I also get that these people can be lost through other causes as well, but COVID deaths can and have been avoided through taking measures such as lockdowns etc and in my opinion that has been worth doing. As I said before every person in the UK who lost someone or who died will be looking back thinking what more could have been done? Did our government fail in their response. They will have that forever. Be glad you are not one of them. Hopefully now the vaccines have been rolled out lockdowns will be a thing of the past. Fingers crossed eh. Certainly in the UK there seems to be no desire in going back to lockdowns but it hasn't been ruled out completely. Case numbers are still pretty high, but deaths are manageable now (although over 100 a day is still v sad), and hospitalizations are on a downward projection.

    wrong again. see you always 'assume' you know what I'm implying without ever really asking. Steam right in with the hypocrite and hollow comments or he must be left etc etc. 🙄 If youve actually read anything I've posted in this thread you'd know that I've acknowledged that the Aus government have gone too far with their lockdown. People who strive for a zero case threshold are crazy i agree. However what I will call out is people who continue to label this pandemic as no big deal, or that because more people die from cancer or heart disease globally that we shouldn't somehow not act to lockdown to save lives, and that anyone who disagrees with Geoff is labelled as fear stricken and living in a state of panic 🙄 As I said before its very easy to sit back and criticise government action when you haven't been affected. Yes the Aus government might have been over draconian , but we see what happens when governments weren't. 170K deaths now in the UK - here there has been heavy criticism of how we handled it. Locking down too late, not following scientific advice etc etc. The reports are pretty damning. Logic follows that if Aus had followed our great lead in terms of populace they would probably have over 50K dead by now. And millions more affected in the families of the dead. Not something to be proud of. As I also said the current situation in Aus is mainly due to the governments complete failure to roll out the vaccines in time. In that respect they have been poor. That could be because they were so successful in the early stages that they took their eye off the ball, who knows. However, Imo had they not locked down when delta struck at their low level of vaccination it would have been a very hard time indeed (obviously understanding that lockdowns are also hard). Over 2000 cases in some places now, even with draconian measures. it would have run riot if all the restrictions had been lifted too early. It still might, who knows. But at least with vaccinations at the right level now the deaths will hopefully be kept low and the hospitals won't be overwhelmed. Must get to work now so laters

    I've already lived through them thanks UK also had draconian restrictions. So you think Geoff trivialising the pandemic is OK yeah? I was merely defending lockdowns as in the UK it did save 1000s of lives. It was the right thing to do.

    wtf are you on about. My comment is directed purely at Geoff who keeps rolling out the 'im living in fear' comment. I'm not. I also don't trivialise a pandemic which has killed millions of people like he does. Glad we got that straight 🙄

    I attended a gig at the weekend No fear here mate.

    also just to put it into perspective. Deaths in the UK in 2019 were just over 0.5 million - so around 1400 a day from ALL causes. In Jan 2021 at the worst point of the pandemic nearly 2000 people a day in UK were dying from COVID. That is excess deaths if you compare totals from 2019 to 2020.

    What has any of that got to do with what I said? Of course those deaths matter but they are not as a result of a pandemic. Jesus. Those diseases will not overwhelm a health system, like ours was overwhelmed.
