    No one is getting their knickers in a twist a lot of people have just said they are not gonna do it as it’s proven to be pointless

    Its like if Boris Johnson came out today and said wearing clown shoes are mandatory in all retail settings from tomorrow to protect you from Covid a lot of people would happily put them on

    It’d be pretty suitable attire for most tbf

    Then there’s those who don’t do pointless things just because a man in a suit on the tv has told them too. It’s a matter of self respect and dignity for some people

    Yeah, but masks obviously do provide some degree of protection. I don't even follow these things because I really do not care as much as other people seem to but it's common sense that a mask in front of your mouth and nose is going to be better than nothing. Not saying that justifies making them mandatory, but the comparison to clown shoes doesn't work, in my opinion.

    Mask wearing is still mandatory in wales, you go out and about and most people you see will be wearing them, wales now has the highest number of infections in the uk, yet atm the media wont mention wales all of a sudden because it doest fit in with omicron and the booster jab.
    The problem with masks only medical grade ones will stop transmitting the bug, the ones the public wear are pretty useless and prob soaked with snot n germs.

    Radio 4 mentioned that wales had the highest number of cases yesterday morning and made a big deal about it. The media will just do whatever is the most alarmist and sensationalist, I don't think they're deliberately pushing a certain angle.

    It’s only a mask
    It’s only 2 weeks to flatten the curve
    It’s only a 3 week lockdown
    It’s only 2 jabs
    It’s only a booster
    It’s only mandatory vaccination for care workers
    It’s only mandatory vaccination for NHS workers
    It’s only 3 week masks whilst we see how bad omnicron is
    Etc etc etc

    And here we are 2 years later

    Do you understand?

    Obviously not

    That's called wishful thinking. It was obvious from the start that covid isn't going away anytime soon. The idea it's some conspiracy is just a narrative in people's heads though. The government would love if all this just went away tomorrow.

    They are matey. My background for many years was News media Distribution. Since the crash they’ve been on their ass both financially and in circulation terms. Over the last 18 months they’ve been out performing financial expectations with massive growth in online engagement especially and therefore increased add revenues in the region of 10-20% while at the same time reducing outgoings by going to remote working and reducing property site portfolios. Covid has been the gift that keeps on giving for a lot of them and boards up and down the country will hope it keeps going as long as possible and angle towards every negative as much as possible.

    Keep going along with it and making excuses for them whilst they all get richer and richer whilst the average Joe suffers (not from Covid but for their actions)

    Working out great so far isn’t it pal

    Didn’t we have the daft tier system that BoJo introduced like a few days before Xmas where if you were tier 3 and 4 their were restrictions and those in tier 4 couldn’t have family over iirc.
    I can’t even remember what the rules were exactly as tbh I have just gone about my business as I usually would, the lockdown doesn’t affect a hermit haha.
    I just hope he doesn’t do a lockdown at all. My postponed wedding is in Feb and he best not mess that up again.

    Who do you think is benefiting from this? And how is being asked to wear a mask suffering? All very dramatic tbh

    “It’s easier to fool ppl than to convince them that they’ve been fooled” ~Mark Twain

    Covid is real gents but if you can’t see it’s been used to push an agenda that isn’t about health your either very stupid or the quote above applies to you. Your ego won’t let you admit you’ve been strung along for 2 years

    You’ve done everything you’ve been asked in the last 2 years yet there’s no end in sight

    Time to drop the ego and admit their taking the piss out of you

    So what's the actual agenda then? Because the people that make claims like this can only talk in vague accusations, and never give a straight answer. What benefit is it for the government to mandate face masks and other covid prevention measures?
