Goodbye Rajiv

P³ is a one, isn’t he? The entire subthread from Rajiv is gone.

Presumably disagreement risks violating the safe space provisions…….

  1. This is a man who not only pre-moderates comments but then seemingly does a retrospective evening tidy up so that his utterings are not questioning. Not sure why he doesn’t just disallow any comments from anyone who isn’t one of his strange online fans. “Completely agree Richard”. “Thank you Richard!”

  2. More likely he’s realised what a twat he made of himself.

    The bleeding obvious point being that if you have 1 kidney and 2 patients then unless you’re going to toss a coin over who gets it, you’ve used values to decide who gets it. You’ve valued one of those people higher than the other, whatever value system you decide to use.

    The Soviet era Kremlin would approve. Come to think of it the current Kremlin probably would as well.

    For those who didn’t read it this was over a hypothetical question, which was posed as a hypothetical question. I paraphrase:

    You have one kidney and two potential recipients, one child and one aged 80, who gets it?

    Spud refused to give an answer, relying on “depends” arguments. Rajiv’s answer: The child, every time. The argument was that in the unlikely event the 80-year-old lived through the operation the regimen of rejection drugs would probably kill them inside 2 years. The child would have many years of life.

    Of course Spud was having none of it, how could there be such a simple answer to a hypothetical questions and invoked his marriage to a GP etc. Spodologists will recognise the signs and know that it was downhill after that and Rajiv’s banning was only a matter of time.

  4. I have come to the sad conclusion over the last few years that logic, facts and reasoning are pretty much useless when trying to argue with the average Joe. And completely useless when trying to argue with the rest.

  5. I was most disappointed when I found out that he’d deleted the spat with Rajiv. His cuntishness knows no bounds.

    The real-world situation is you have 2 kidneys and several hundred to thousand potential recipients. Time on waiting list is highly weighted in the decision as to who gets them, otherwise you’d only have the younger people coming in on the bottom of the list getting kidneys. An 80 year-old is highly unlikely to make the list at all.

    The wait in Germany is 8 years on average. Northern Ireland almost cleared their entire transplant list last year, despite Covid.

  7. I assume he would prefer the CCP model of scheduled transplants, freshness of donated organ guaranteed. I wonder if approved recipients cann choose the religion of the donor? Falun Gong or Muslim?

  8. Northern Ireland almost cleared their entire transplant list last year, despite Covid.

    Did the rate of new additions to the waiting list remain roughly as expected in a normal year?

  9. He probably deleted the comments after it dawned on him that his responses were likely to land him in deep shit with the ICAEW’s ethical code.

    It’s a real shame nobody thought to take screenshots.

  10. From this we may conclude that Rajiv is deemed by Murphy not to be a member of “civil society”, but a brown-nosing camp follower who is allowed by Murphy to post as below is

    “So, and I’m going to say this as politely as I possibly can… take your inhumane eugenicist views, shove them up your arse and fuck off back under your stone, you nauseating little Nazi prick.”

    Unusually, I watched ITV news last night. The COVID coverage consisted of hacks reading out government info with a specially sad face on and a report on some old dear who – shocked to find that she survived a bout with COVID in NHS intensive care – had written a poem about how lovely the nurses were. Cue tears and emoting. The rest of it was some tripe about the Markle family.

    Rational argument is for granny-killers and facts for fascists.

    MC,

    Didn’t they have the confected story about postcode lotteries and how someone’s 99-year-old mother/father/grandmother or whoever was desperately waiting for the vaccination while 70-year-olds in other parts of the country were being called forward?

    Followed by Evil Tories, natch.

  13. On The Times website, in discussion with a remainiac – sorry, quisling – I listed several examples of the Fourth Reich breaking international law. The response was:
    “Evidence is in the eye of the beholder.”
    The thick-as-mince subjectivist evidently couldn’t see that his reply undermined his own position.

  14. “Northern Ireland almost cleared their entire transplant list last year, despite Covid.“

    How many of them died before they could receive treatment?
