What wonderful news.(I never knew it had disappeared. I haven’t picked up a pint for at least 15 years). I suppose some will be happy, as instructed by the Express.
A pint being defined as:
568.26125​
millilitres

Whatever happened to mandatory over-sized pint glasses?

A tangent, and I genuinely dont mean to offend any forumites who may live on one, but I often wonder what makes narrowboats so expensive (circa 80k buys an awful lot of used sailboat, even if it doesnt come with a 7 foot beam)?
No offence at all. I totally agree. Its exactly why I started fitting them out. Did half a dozen but stopped now. Enjoyed it but hard work.. Did a couple from bare hull...learnt a lot. Great experience. You have to be able to turn your hand to all types of things.. Plasma cutting, bouyancy calcs, woodwork, plumbing, welding... Spray foaming... Painting...Electrics, 12v and 240,inverters,pumps etc etc. Proper Jack of all trades master of none.

And jimmy carr, believe it not, who's parents were irish. England remind me of a place in africa I worked (gauteng) that only exist because of immigration (to be fair - unlike england - gauteng has gold as well)

I wonder how long before the government realises narrow boats were made for carrying goods and issues HGV driving licences to the owners?

It could well become an annual jab like the 'flu one. In that case it could hopefully be combined as one jab, or if not, one in each arm at the same time.
Hmmm. I'd be worried about combining vaccinations. Your immune system gets compromised as it is with just one foreign thing at a time to contend with.
And as for separate arms - is that going to make a difference? They've shown now that while these mRNA chemicals were SUPPOSED to stay in the one place - they don't!

<How do people here feel if you need a booster shot every 6 months for the rest of your life?>

If it does become annual or biannual for the whole population, perhaps we'll need to consider it a step on the road to our eventual extinction.
Yea. How does the risk factor thing work with these multiple booster jabs? is it a case of each time you get a jab, you get the same chance of suffering from a nasty side effect, so if you keep on having to take them every few months, then won't everybody be getting nearer and nearer to a certainty of having a serious reaction??
Why aren't people talking about this ???

In circumstances like this we can only decide for ourselves. Since at 85 I don't have many six months left, a jab every six months wouldn't worry me.

It would be bit rough on a 12 year old who'd just had their first jab and looking forward to around 140 more. Hopefully we'll get a bit more clever with time and find another way of dealing with it.

I think I heard that 12-15 year olds will be offered vaccination. But only one injection.

Anyone aware of any evidence that a single dose of the existing two-dose options is viable and supported by the manufacturers?
