Yeah but this doesn't take into account that loads of Brits are bored of Covid now and the weather's dead nice so we'll just collectively all agree to ignore all the deaths.

Yeah, "the new normal" is just pretending that 400 excess deaths a day is perfectly fine, after all what more could we have done...

'Ate Covid.

'Ate Bill Gates.

'Ate 5G.

Luv beer gardens.

Luv going down the beach.

Luv meeting me mates.

Ambivalent about tens of thousands of more deaths.

I don't think this is an excuse by any means, but some of the clickbait I have seen on Facebook from news outlets/media doesn't help either. I understand headlines are done in a way to make people click links and read articles, but I don't think many people actually do (on my Facebook anyway) and take whatever the headline is as guidance.

My dad got a phone call from the NHS this week saying he was on the vulnerable list and did he need a food parcel.

 After 11 weeks!  If he had needed a food parcel he’d be dead.

A lot of people probably slipped through the cracks.

If it's anything like the NHS data we received then the callers would have also called people who were dead before lockdown and shielding even started (in some cases they died last year), people who work for the NHS (they're not vulnerable, they were just included in the data seemingly by accident), and people who don't need to be shielding (as confirmed by their GP). 

The whole thing has been a complete shambles.

I cannot believe what is happening in London. People really are the worst. 

To be fair, this could be posted in any thread.

Unless I’m missing something blindingly obvious, what’s happening?

The thousands marching through London yeah. I absolutely support the sentiment but this is ridiculous, has Covid just been forgotten about. 

 

Sorry should have specified.

Surprised the news we found a vaccine didn't get more publicity:

Just to say, this is fake.  Those criteria aren't the official ones.

Yeah, apologies for this. I should have reverse image searched.

Looks like it originated on the Mail website a few weeks ago and was then a "how lockdown could be lifted" speculation rather than official criteria: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8311227/Britain-endure-lockdowns-future-unless-government-changes-dangerous-stance.html

Not sure if the Mail produced it themselves or just lifted it from elsewhere.
