We need to learn to live with Covid. It should go without saying that every death is tragic for those involved. There is no doubt that people have died during covid unnecessarily, both from the virus itself as well as from side effects from the jabs. The long term safety of which is still uncertain.
Vaccination should be a free choice. If you are under 75 and have no underlying health conditions, your statistical odds of dying from Covid are very small.
We should be able to carry out personal risk assessments, and then decide on what medical treatments to accept or refuse based on our personal risk profile. Personally, I felt that as a healthy 53 year old, not over weight, with no underlying conditions, my chance of surviving Covid-19 was 99.9%. On the other hand, for me, taking a new, not fully tested jab represented a greater risk than the virus did.
Whatever you might read, anywhere, no one can know what the impact of the jab will be in 5 or 10 years time. It might be zero (I hope it is), or, it might have a negative affect on our immune systems. If I was in my 70’s or 80’s with underlying health conditions, I would probably rush for the jab, because 5 or 10 years down the road is less important than the here and now. As I said, for each person, the risk is different and they should be free to choose. The Governments one size fits all coercion is not a good plan.
In these interesting times it’s never been more important to stay connected with each other.

We are currently seeing adverts in the media attempting to normalise strokes and heart attacks in the young. Whether they are on the rise or just being reported more enthusiastically, it seems strange to be advertising as such.
We have vaccinated the vulnerable & depending on your viewpoint, that should protect them from the worst of the virus.
How long the jab or multiple jabs will actually protect you is a matter for conjecture. Unlike every other vaccine in history, any beneficial protective effect decreases rapidly. Either that, or your immune response wanes post jab.
Everybody not at enhanced risk needs to get back to life, back to the office, back to business.
We should make sure that all vulnerable and higher risk people receive all the support and protection that they require, but no one should be coerced into having a vaccine that they don’t want & in all probability don’t need.
Forcing jabs on children is wrong. We have never vaccinated one section of society in order to protect another section.
Natural immunity has protected us for millenia and it will continue to do so.
I find it almost inconceivable that during the first lockdown the Government, knowing that obesity was a significant factor in covid hospitalisations and deaths, closed Gyms but left McDonalds and fast food outlets open. They restricted outside recreation and exercise when there was no evidence of people catching the virus outside.
Surely a responsible Government would have used their psychological propaganda nudge theory unit to encourage exercise & healthy eating. The best advice the Government could have given people was to lose weight as a matter of urgency, get fitter and eat well.
Just imagine how much pressure would be taken off the NHS if the population got fitter, lost weight and ate a balanced diet of fresh, healthy, locally produced foods. How many people are treated for obesity, diabetes, heart disease and countless other issues all related to being overweight.
We shouldn’t be normalising excess weight to avoid stigmatising people. If it takes a few hurty words to push people into taking better care of themselves, then so be it.
The Harm of Lockdowns
Lockdowns have caused significant harm to mental health with large increases in suicide, self harm and mental health issues that for some will be long lasting and damaging.
Mental health is one of the hidden costs of lockdown. The sooner we get back to the old normal the sooner people will rebuild their lives and recover from the issues caused.
We must not lockdown again. Countries such as Sweden that didn’t lockdown are now seeing much lower long term death rates than we have.
