    Brexit, for once some facts.

    I fully agree with you..its extremely petty in the great scheme of things and should be flagged up only at the doors in an election canvass. Oyster is also correct in that it displays the same arrogance. ..but again the place to bring it up is at the canvass. Having said that I do believe that...

    I got such a torch from Halfords of all places and it is exceedingly bright at 1600 lumens focused into bike light beam. . I got it for my daughter who was reduced to travelling by bike the last 3 miles after her 45 minute train journey during the height of the lockdown. One fall justified the...

    No flecc. Nobody can say that person A and Person B were put into a room with a specific concentration of virons and because person A survived a bit longer before getting ill that they had the better preparation. However, Statistics does work on large populations. When you take whole...

    Hi Woosh... Just a few points . The current vaccines are still highly effective, and have not had their recipes tweaked as of yet. The serious illness ratio to infections is proof of that. The hospitals are still filled with the unvaccinated , rather than the waning vaccinated. Now that those...

    Very much the reverse here in my village. In fact I am now noticing people again wearing masks on pretty much deserted promenades. My daily walk schedule brings me along a path through an estate, through a church car park and along the shops and promenade, with a wind howling in from...

    Yes there are now 44 direct Ireland EU routes as opposed to I think about 18 some 2 years ago. The time difference is not really significant, since UK roads are relatively poor , and the drivers get a 14 hour long kip on the way, so their tachometer gives them a longer reach into Europe. The...

    Picked up a little something for my better half..which would possibly be of assistance. A small electric hot water bottle .. basically a small bottle of water in a sealed rubber container and inside a flock velvety cover. A mains unit drives 300 watts into it for about 40 minutes until it...

    If only to amplify your answer... My daughter was in a taxi the other day ,and the driver claimed he was just back at work having had Covid. He got it last February March , prior to vaccination in his age group, then was double vaccinated , and again succumbed last October. There is probably...

    You might like to revise your opinion of vaccines, considering that the Polio vaccine was LESS effective than the current Covid vaccines. Fortunately the transmission rate of Polio was slower and people were more proactive in taking it. Again and again the point needs to be made that the...

    The function of a vaccine is to generate antibodies in advance of a disease . The fundamental point is that the vaccine does not in itself treat .it .
