The Virus is back in the news.
Well, it is in this household anyway.
I was browsing the papers this morning when I came across an article about how Our Great Leaders are meeting to discuss “the possibility of introducing mandatory vaccination“. Note that our Teashop stated before Christmas how he was against the idea? It’s amazing how quickly they change their minds? It brings to mind the old adage that you can always tell when a politician is lying – his lips move.
Now lets have a quick recap. The ICU figures continue to fall. Hospital admissions have levelled off. 92% of the population is jabbed. The variant that is causing the big spike in numbers is pretty much benign, and there is no mention of the seriousness of the cases where quite possibly a lot are asymptomatic or very mild. And interestingly 75% of those in hospital are fully vaccinated. So much for the vaccine? And they want to make it mandatory?
Having digested that little piece of news I received a phone call. Our Health Visitor will not be calling tomorrow for my weekly hour of respite. She has effectively been sacked as she is one of the Unclean and refuses to be needled, despite there being a huge shortfall in staff due to absenteeism down to “isolating”. She can have her job back but only if she gets jabbed. Incidentally it was the Visitor who phoned and not the Health Service who were supposed to phone but didn’t. Shower of cunts,
And just to round things off, I’m picking up two of the Grandkids from school on Wednesday and Thursday, Daughter has just informed me they are technically “close contacts” so technically they should steer well clear of me. Fuck that for a game of soldiers.
I shall greet them with open arms.
