Boris is just so terrible, isn’t he?January 16, 2021 Tim WorstallHealth Care19 Comments Britain has fully vaccinated more people against #COVID19 than every other nation on earth combined. pic.twitter.com/v5doEsG4lT — Keith Humphreys (@KeithNHumphreys) January 15, 2021 previousThis isn’t racismnextThese people are insane 19 thoughts on “Boris is just so terrible, isn’t he?” Rupert January 16, 2021 at 12:34 pm I think he keeps on showing that he’s incapable of managing scientists: he really needs to start holding them to predictions. But when it comes to picking the right venture capitalist to source vaccines, he’s probably the best in the world 🙂 Bloke in China (Germany province) January 16, 2021 at 12:35 pm So Britain will be back to old normal soon, won’t it. Oh. The BBC January 16, 2021 at 12:35 pm Here’s Jack Monroe and Femi Ooglyboogly to explain why this is sexist and/or racist. DocBud January 16, 2021 at 12:45 pm Britain isn’t fully vaccinating people, most of those vaccinated have only received one dose and the NHS would rather throw away vaccine doses than give people a second dose. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2021/01/15/exclusive-doctors-told-throw-away-leftover-covid-vaccines-rather/ PJF January 16, 2021 at 12:49 pm . . . most of those vaccinated have only received one dose . . . But we’re still ahead of RoW in those who have received two. bloke in spain January 16, 2021 at 12:51 pm Standard socialism. If everybody can’t have it, nobody can have it. Equality for all! philip January 16, 2021 at 12:59 pm Anyone? Is the second dose identical to the first dose? PJF January 16, 2021 at 1:01 pm But when it comes to picking the right venture capitalist to source vaccines, he’s probably the best in the world I suspect we got ahead not because we were good but because the EU was so bad. Pfizer was ready to rock and the French were still designing their questionnaires. Exploit! I also suspect that the whole world has benefitted from The Donald saying “fuck that shit” when told it would take years for a vaccine. john77 January 16, 2021 at 1:02 pm @ philip Yes for the Pfizer vaccine, No for the Oxford-AstraZeneca one Diogenes January 16, 2021 at 1:04 pm At least the CoE is doing something useful for a change https://www.salisburyjournal.co.uk/news/19012251.salisbury-cathedral-covid-vaccine-rollout-ready-start/ MC January 16, 2021 at 2:44 pm Boris Is Just So Terrible, Isn’t He? The British state is getting one thing at least half-right. I suppose that counts as over-achievement. itellyounothing January 16, 2021 at 7:20 pm Has anyone told the lock downers that we are only ahead because of Brexit? EU wanted a slow joint approach….. Flubber January 17, 2021 at 4:57 am There’s reports coming out of Norway for example, that in the e4lderly, the post vaccination death rate is 1 in a 1000. Given that’s not far off the virus death rate, and the elderly are those needing the vaccine most, isn’t all this completely self defeating? Bloke in Wales January 17, 2021 at 8:38 am There’s reports coming out of Norway for example, that in the e4lderly, the post vaccination death rate is 1 in a 1000. Given that’s not far off the virus death rate, and the elderly are those needing the vaccine most, isn’t all this completely self defeating? The point of the vaccine is to give the politicians a way out, so they can avoid the consequences of the damage they caused. dearieme January 17, 2021 at 10:04 am “Given that’s not far off the virus death rate” The virus death rate for the very old and very frail? And which death rate: IFR or CFR? gareth January 17, 2021 at 12:25 pm Tim: Even if the lying adulterous sociopath scumbag Alexander “Boris” de-Piffel Johnson could cure all known diseases and establish peace on earth, the answer to your question would still be “Yes”. Please could we have Mr Trump? I understand that he might be available soon… gareth January 17, 2021 at 12:33 pm @ Bloke in Wales Wrote to MP some weeks ago. Pointed out that a “Covid Death” is defined (by HMG) as anyone who dies of anything in the 28 days after getting a “positive” Covid test (even if it’s a false positive, no symptoms, no disease at all). Asked if they were intending to categorize anyone who died within 28 days of a jab as a “Vaccine Death”… Snotty reply from his office; said he wasn’t going to reply to any of my inconvenient questions. Wonko the sane January 17, 2021 at 4:34 pm what is the point of vaccinating people if as a result we are still in lockdown? Grist January 17, 2021 at 5:48 pm How hilarious. Given the figures; amazing news. Given the name; wanker, tosser, lying scumbag etc. Perhaps some commenters would just simply write “I hate Boris Johnson because he smells”. Same rapier wit, similar insightful comment. Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
