”We now interrupt this normal life to bring you something you didn’t know you needed to be scared about (which, probably, you don’t actually need to be scared of) but we’re going to scare you anyway because there are some concerns you seem to be enjoying your freedom rather too much so we are here to remind you that freedom is conditional on not enjoying yourself and remaining suitably scared”....the great British people are being hassled to take up their covid booster in a medical efficiency drive never known to our crumbling NHS, having received 5 booking requests and 2 missed calls for me to take up my booster, I can’t help but think about all other more serious ailments and diseases that are going unchecked. Meanwhile we are again subjected to more media hysteria about another mutant ninja covid killer....enough, I’m not doing it. Go treat some really sick people who can’t get near your surgery but for a barrage of blocking tactics!

My father and 17 year old god daughter died of Covid 19. I wholeheartedly agree that from what is already known omicron poses far less threat but anyone who cant be bothered wearing a mask indoors or being vaccinated unecessarily risks others lives. How on earth is wearing a mask whilst shopping of on public transport a hardship? If one wants to abstain from potentially helping others may be not treating anyone who feel that a mask and vaccination unecessary is reasonsble? It would free up the NHS too.

Mass vaccinations were unnecessary. They don't stop transmission, they only protect the person receiving the vaccine and the vast majority of people do not need them. In fact the vaccinated take far more risks than the unvaccinated as they believe they're bulletproof from infection. This was evident in Austria when infection rates continued to soar even after they locked up the unvaccinated. It's not Covid people should be worried about, it's freedom!
