Another lockdown?

Post by Steve30000 »

Boris and his sage clowns are panicking over this Indian variant, even though they could have immediately stopped all travel to and from there, but instead chose to wait a week.

This is all on that idiot, he's an utter clown to let this happen.

There'll be riots and mass non compliance if this goes on any longer than the 21st of June imo.

I've never known us to be so obsessed about variants of a disease than this one, we never banged on about it about other pandemics, but we can't stop worrying about it happening with this one.

We need to get on with our normal lives, not keep panicking about named variants of a disease we have a vaccine for.

Let's see if the vaccine works first.
They can modify it easily enough for the variants but jabbing everyone a second time :headscratch:

What's up with the 21st of June apart from it being the longest day?

Herd immunity is nearly upon us so they will allow a bit of freedom.

If the vaccine works and gives us herd immunity then it will be brilliant news and the Tories will get in for another term.
