Stampy feet

Reality is disagreeing with the P³:

Can’t agree with this part:

“What is absolutely certain is that the UK’s failure to properly double vaccinate people in short time scales has left more people vulnerable to it than is necessary.”

The UK is comfortably ahead of all EU nations and the US in the % fully vaccinated.

That’s despite the 2nd dose delay, which may or may not have been the best course but at least has solid logic behind it. It’s hard to see the UK vaccine rollout as anything but a success story.

You clearly have not looked at the data

We are now way down the list

We did well

Not any more we do not

Way down the list? Have a look at

Fully vaccinated as of the 11th June (the most recent date when all are updated):

UK = 43% (5th behind Israel, Bahrain, Mongolia and Chile)

US = 42%
Germany = 25%
Italy = 23%
France = 21%
(EU = 24%)

That doesn’t look “way down the list” to me.

Who pays you trolls?

Why don’t you realise one dose is not vaccinated?

Maybe you should look at the data again before you get things wrong.

We are still ahead of all of Europe and still at the top of the list.

One does is not vaccinated

It’s a jab

But no useful protection at all

I referred to people vaccinated

The Our World in Data page has a section headed: “What share of the population has been fully vaccinated against COVID-19?”, which they clearly explain as: “The following chart shows the share of the total population that has been fully vaccinated against COVID-19. This represents the share that have received all doses prescribed by the vaccination protocol. If a person receives the first dose of a 2-dose vaccine, this metric stays the same. If they receive the second dose, the metric goes up by 1.”

Those are the numbers correctly quoted by other commenters. The data is very clearly presented.

Naughty reality, eh?

  1. The P3’s dug so many holes for himself Ely must be cratered like the moon. The Chinese will be landing a rover, next.

  2. Rowdy – beat me to it!

    Tim, I don’t know why you still bother with the Spud. He long ago jumped the shark that jumped over the moon.

  3. He’s getting increasingly splenetic, something I would not have thought possible. Maybe the donkey no longer wants to work with him

  4. Bobbie, who is known to me, did try and point out what “fully vaccinated” meant, but wasn’t allowed further comment.

    If he can be that rude to a one-girl beauty chorus (while being utterly wrong), you have to wonder.

  5. I too have been increasingly thinking the Spud needs an extra ‘e’ and will be looking for a distinctive colour of trousers. Something to match his face?

  6. Perhaps even more hilarious was the next post about ‘Fascism is close’ – coming from the man who wants to lock everyone up in perpetuity and steal their savings to invest in his pet schemes, when his democratic mandate amounts to one MP in England?

    It did feature a comment from one of the ‘Famous Four’ (commentators whose views were if anything even more fanatical, misanthropic and repellent than Murphy’s), Ivan Horrocks so it seems the usual suspects are still out there…..

  7. Spude has the anagram pseud. Unfortunately he’s not a pseud – he’s genuinely dim, ignorant and bad-tempered. And, alas, somewhat insane.

    They were:

    – Ivan Horrocks (Pestilence)
    – Andrew Dickie (War)
    – Howard Reed (Famine)
    – Carol Wilcox (Death)

    Haven’t seen Dickie on there in a while – I’d have to say given his age he may have departed this mortal coil (although you don’t wish that on anyone naturally – but his politics were more like someone of 18) and I know Wilcox, as hateful a figure as I have ever seen in Cyberspace, had a falling out with Murphy over her pet hobby horse which was the ‘Land Valuation Tax’. The other two you do see occasionally , albeit I hadn’t seen Horrocks in an age, which was why I deemed it noteworthy!

    I’ve been reading him too long….

  9. @ dearieme
    “pseud” as in “psuedointellectual”
    Standard word among 1960s schoolboys when we got fed up with pseudo-intellectuals being called intellectuals.

  10. @ V_p

    Surely a mention for the odious ‘Pilgrim Sleight Return’ a man who must make it difficult for Spud to sit down as he always has his tongue firmly up Spuds fat sweaty arse?

    Supposedly working from home for a local council, he seems to spend much of his day reading and contributing to Spud’s verbal vomit.

  11. AndrewC

    He is truly a reprehensible piece of crap – the ‘Christian Wirth’ of Tax Research Uk disciples – but he did come around later then the original – I’ll try and think of a suitable biblical analogy for him!!

  12. The Meissen Bison

    V_P: Yes, I too was wondering if Pilgrim Slight Retard could join your apocalyptic gang of four.

  13. It seems that they are all terribly sure about Kipling’s politics, given that the Orwell quote they are rubbing themselves over suggests that K is not easy to pin down. I wonder whether that nuanced Kipling admirer, Salman Rushdie, would be a racist Fascist for the gang of 4 spudlets?

  14. Imagine being so colossally stupid that you think vaccinating tens of millions of people months before other countries is a bad thing, because your country has fewer and fewer people left to vaccinate and ‘falls behind’ on daily vaccinations to countries which have just got out of bed.

    Murphy’s view of a race is the winner is whoever was running the fastest at the precise moment the finishing line was crossed. Reaching the line first is irrelevant.

  15. What a bunch of mugs. Enjoy your gene re-write. And if you think it hasn’t affected you remember the last nasty SARS vax fail–the one that gave the volunteers narcolepsy (and for which they shared 60 million–you wont) took 2 years to kick off.

    Millions of us wont be taking the crap ever.
