Evening tinhead.

I did read your posts and was of a similar mind. It's been like standing back and watching a couple of year 9 kids at times which is why I've just kept out of it all.

In terms of your reply. I'm in agreement. Nobody has all the answers.

That is no excuse for mistakes that could have been avoided though. The response that 'Corbyn would have been just as bad' is just rubbish. He probably would have been but that doesn't address the actual question of the government who ARE making the mistakes. If you took your car to be fixed and they did a Crap job, you wouldn't accept 'well the garage down the road would have probably done it worse mate' as a valid response would you?

And as you know, this isn't me banging a labour drum as I would be equally critical of any government who made the same errors. And it's common knowledge I didn't vote for them either.

Some things have been the result of unforseen events but others are simply poor planning and management and it's right that we can call that into question as a populous.

Always happy to have a reasonable debate fella

I am all for change if it is for the better but a bit of direction would be useful. No different to where we are now for me. Uncharted waters

As long as it turns out good for our country and our people then so be it

Ok Mal you must of read my posts about these type of threads yesterday.
I donít mind debating with you though because your responses are measured and polite
Just thought Iíd give you an alternative point of view, the government has made mistakes and will continue to do so. Itís the nature of Covid and anyone who says they have all the answers are either liars or deluded.

@Noj
Ok mate but Iím not going any further with Brexit in a Covid thread

Yeah it was decision people needed to make, but the actual information regarding the choice wasnít clear and impartial enough for my liking

Yes there are less hospital admissions which is the real positive

However; the focus shifted a while back to economic factors being the driver for decisions and it was obvious to anyone that the risk would increase once businesses and schools etc reopened. The result is that the attempt to kick start the economy could be scuppered because predictions didn't err on the side of being better prepared. I definitely wouldn't have called them reckless for that.

Better to take plenty of sunscreen in your suitcase than wait until you fall asleep in a sangria fuelled stupor and end up with sunburn.... (speaking from experience there!)

All to do with predictions and like most things Covid are just that predictions
If they thought cases were going to rise too high they wouldnít have lifted so many of the restrictions in the first place. They must have thought the present capacity was sufficient to be able to get those people back to work.
If they had to increase testing capacity to do that then youíd say that the government was being reckless with the easing of restrictions if they thought the current system couldn't cope.
Not much of an increase in hospital admissions last time I looked, weíve loads of capacity due to that prediction not being spot on.

Let's see what your prediction about further restrictions being needed turns out to be. I predict you will be right

There have been a number of very obvious and clear factors that have increased the risk of the spread lately - businesses restarting, schools, colleges and universities starting, the eat out to help out scheme. ..

And it seems no moves to prepare for the increase in testing that would be needed to cope with this if evidence is to be believed.

That's just poor planning.

Knock on effects of kids having to be sent home to isolate - other kids in their bubbles having to do the same, parents and carers having to get tested and stay off work... it's all very messy right now and there's a lack of joined up thinking being displayed.

Cases are rising and projections have us looking to follow the patterns in France as an example - so expect more restrictions as a probable rather than a possible.

where the outcome could hamper generations Or could improve them.

Where would we be if no one ever took a chance or opportunity because something 'could' go wrong.
It 'could' be that things will get worse to begin with but turn out better in the end.
It 'could' be a disaster but the decision has been made now and only time will tell.

Personally I donít think the public were well enough informed to make a decision of that magnitude, where the outcome could hamper generations

Exactly that for me. A critical decision like that based around virtually nothing. Think i will stick

Sorry, conditioned a lot of the nation into thinking we would get rid of all these bloody immigrants pinching our jobs

I voted labour. On the basis of long term benefit to the overall population. Especially around tax evasion by the rich. Funnily enough a lot of the Ďnonsenseí measures around taxes and finances are now being serious considered by Rishi to get us out of this economic crisis...whereas when it was a labour idea it would ďonly make it worseĒ 🤷🏻‍♂️ But that is the nature of propaganda isnít it. A large part of my persuasion is based on the environment because I care about it, and I also work in the industry of improving and restoring it.

Yes, people have every right to be pissed off if the government make mistakes.
So did you vote liberal? Who were prepared to ignore a democratic vote and cancel brexit altogether?
Or labour? Who couldnít actually decide where they stood and wether ignoring the first referendum was a good idea or not .
Thatís not a criticism of how youíve voted, because itís your vote to do with as you please.
I never mention brexit, because I didnít vote and have no dog in the fight. Personally I donít think the public were well enough informed to make a decision of that magnitude, where the outcome could hamper generations

On another note. Couple sent home from my work yesterday with symptoms. Gone for tests. See what happens today. You can go out but must not exceed groups of 6. In the workplace apparently this does not matter?

Hopefully they get tests, seemingly there isnít any left anywhere. NHS staff canít even get hold of them. Itíll be a pain if they canít as Iím assuming theyíd have to tell everyone to isolate?

Yeah, itís weird how political allegiances works isnít it. Youíre brought up to support a party or itís geographically charged. America is similar for it too.

Best thing is to have none and vote based on what you think is the best overall manifesto to benefit yourself and the country you will be living in. And if all else fails, vote Green Party because if everyone did that then at minimum the environment will be at the forefront of policies instead of an after thought.

Fair point

How many people vote for one certain party because its bred into them, loads i bet!

To be fair there is only two in the reckoning and when the Liberals came close last time with i guess that was because most people were not happy with the "poplar two" and they were selling something a little different, which then ended up opening the door for the conservatives!!!
