It'll make no difference to me because it's still mandated in my workplace - but I strongly suggest we buy lots of earplugs in advance because the whining of the "fweedom" lot will be positively Biblical...

Last week I walked past a bus. Lower floor - mostly older people, mostly masked.

Upper floor - teenagers and young adults, not a mask to be seen.

I know the feeling. Was in a newsagent in Carlisle last week, full of teenagers milling around, unmasked, picking things up and putting them back.

Went up to the counter, proffered my copy of the i and 65p. The cashier (masked, as I was) said thanks with feeling.

Most of the COVID patients in ICU are unvaccinated apparently.

When you look at deaths in the middle-age bracket, unvaccinated deaths exceed those of the vaccinated by a considerable ratio. I'm sure if you grovelled around in ONS/NHS data, you'd find the actual figures.

When I think how poorly my nephew was at times (he's 40 and asthmatic), I shudder to think how he'd have been if he was unvaccinated, especially as he had two ILIs either side of Covid, caught, we think, from his students...

On a train and wandering round on Saturday for the first time in a few months I noticed more than ever that there's a definite age difference in mask-wearing. Under 40 hardly anyone, over fifty almost 100%.

This is rather belated but one of my brother's longest childhood friends is an anti-vaxxer and was unable to attend the wedding last week because he caught COVID.

He's anti-vax because he's skeptical about whether a vaccine developed within a year is really safe and that we don't know the long term effects yet. He probably could do more reading on the science and data but I don't think such a stance is that unreasonable, certainly not fucknugget worthy.

What is fucknugget worthy is him buying a forged vaccine card so he could go about his business unfettered as if the pandemic had never happened. I'm glad karma caught up with him in the end.
