I sincerely hope that this man is ok and has not met with an accident, but why do people think it’s ok to travel from a high Covid risk area to spend time in a low risk area? People on holiday go out and about far more than those living in that area at the moment. They visit more shops, pubs and restaurants. It only takes one… Read more »

If one infected person Boards a coach in Manchester you can guess the who”e coach will be infected by the time it reaches Southampton


stay at home, jeez Covid Hystericals are so selfish, they want to punish the healthy for not being afraid of something that has a mortality rate no greater than the flu.


Jon – You have been told many times by different people here and on the CP comments pages that there is plenty of proof that Covid is so much more dangerous than flu. Even those who don’t die are often left with long term damage to their hearts, kidneys, lungs and even eyesight. Repeating a lie does not make it the truth.


I suggest people watch the latest uk Column news on the most popular Vid upload site. youtube (dot) com watch?v=-zLTYwIg9YY , and just for clarification from the ad hominem attacks they use factual documents from the government itself.


Ah yes, UK Column News, a site dedicated to conspiracy theories and a very suitable source for the tinfoil hat bunch.


Chris, there’s little point arguing with Jon, he’s one of the tinfoil hat fraternity. He drags up random “proof” of his views, largely from unreliable sites, and posts them here in such a was as to avoid moderation. (i.e he leaves the dot out). His rantings keep on coming though.


now this is a lovely OAP who is not afraid minds (dot) com/newsfeed/1134782326324252672

But why shouldn’t people think it’s ok if the government thinks it’s ok for non-elected PM Cummings to travel hundreds of miles with Covid (to a home built without the permission the rest of us are supposed to apply for first, and for which about £50,000 of the council tax the rest of us are required to pay has also been written off)? And because the government… Read more »

Cummings provides more content for ignoring the Covid rules on page 34 of the latest Private Eye (1533), and on page 31 for ignoring the tax rules.

And today’s news of damaging Dom’s overdue departure will no doubt feature in the next issue…

As expected – easy target cover and content (Private Eye 1535)

Coincidentally, the content also includes a “Funny Old World” item on Island holiday makers lost and found.


Steve. I despise Cummings so why would I take him as a template for my behaviour rather than doing what I can to keep myself, my family and other people safe from this disease.
