    Amish Covid

    Oz has the opposite problem - they locked down well and COVID cases were minimal, therefore the population is resistant to getting vaccinated and so, when travel is allowed to happen again, COVID cases rise............

    None of that is bulls**t, but keep digging.

    Amish Covid

    Closing of airports would have been a good start. Very limited journeys for a few weeks (as per Europe). A proper track and trace system implemented by someone who knew what they were doing and not SERCO............ Short, sharp restrictions, airports closed until we got on top of it. Really...

    Why won’t Brits pick vegetables for £30 an hour?

    I have a slightly unusual perspective compared to some on here. I'm from Salford (the greater Manchester one, not the one in the Cotswolds). My grandparents knew poverty unlike most these days have never seen and I've seen modern urban poverty through visiting relatives etc. We moved to...

    Amish Covid

    There's two opposite approaches to herd immunity though: The first is to just let the disease rip through the population and let millions die The second is to properly lock down and allow time for treatments/vaccines to be developed and save lives in the process. NZ chose an approach close to...

    I did chuckle at this, and I'm sure that the second half of the article actually has a point. https://www.irishtimes.com/life-and-style/i-work-to-keep-a-roof-over-my-head-i-don-t-see-any-other-value-or-purpose-in-work-zero-1.4700681

    :ROFLMAO: Righto. "I refuse to engage with people that use food banks, I'd rather sit at home and decide that they are feckless without any real world experience so I can feel superior"

    Pet owners face £20,000 fines and jail time for feeding their pets a vegan diet

    To be fair, my dogs all quite like a bit of carrot when I'm pulling them. Not that I'd consider carrots anything other than a novelty inclusion in their diet.

    I deliberately made the outgoings as minimum as humanly possible to make my point and hopefully not get all the "but the internet/tv/etc etc is a luxury" responses - I didn't even include heating! But yes, people are human, and when your existence is sh!t (and even when it isn't) you might...
