    I reckon it was thought likely all along that infections would rise with schools opening - the question is what would have been considered manageable. Under 10,000 maybe? Bearing in mind the tumbling death figures it may be that that was thought an acceptable cost. Domitian was definitely not a man to get on the wrong end of.

    Rather like Scott being 'one of two first people' (apart from Roald's mates) to walk to the South Pole. Second is nowhere, Buzz, old son. Is he too lah-de-dah to mix with the other astronauts in their thread? I see you even tried a 'People who walked on the moon' thread in 2018, but that made it about as far as the Columbia.

    Anyone remember the Europeans planning and the butter mountains? This was the result of previous political meddling for the greater good. Too many cooks in the kitchen, fingers in the pie, lunatics in the asylum and politicians trying to look good. Astra Zeneca Vaccine produced on a non profit basis does make the vaccines cheaper. Cheaper does not mean inferior in performance. The third wave is happening in the countries where the uptake of the vaccines has been slow, politicians are just trying to shift the blame for their own poor performance. Does anybody question who has produced the annual flu Jabs? No, we have political one-upmanship with the Europeans once again demonstrating why the Brexit negotiations were so difficult with petty bureaucracy replacing common sense. There appears to be a blind sheep mentality with little common sense being shown. Literally lemmings off a cliff. The politicians who make unsubstantiated comments about the lack of efficacy of a Vaccine should be held to account. Off the cuff political comments can create a lot of damage.

    I'm even more cynical. The Oxford AZ vaccine has been continually and deliberately trashed right left & centre. I suspect there are vested interests behind this. Could the fact that it's being made available on a non-profit basis have anything to do with it? Surely not
