    You seem to be very keen on predicting lockdowns, whilst the rest of us aren't.
    I have no idea if "Bojo" can read

    off course BoJo can read….Eton then Oxford I think…..

    but yes, I think we will have another lockdown or 2.
    My prediction is not ITK & it does not influence events actually happening. It’s a footy forum not the debating chamber in the Houses of Parliament …..

    There was some very imaginative "bubble stretching" last Xmas, and I would think it would be even more extensive if re applied this year. Its a waste of time, the only part that achieves anything is working from home, which isn't going to do much at Xmas. I'm sure hospitality would be overjoyed if subjected to more restrictions. **** it. Get vaccinated and run with it. If the non vaccinated suffer, then they obviously didn't understand the question.

    Only problem with this is, what impact does it have on the NHS?

    Will we see more people on longer waiting lists because staff are moved to deal with pressing Covid cases? Not to mention the impact on staff catching it and having to isolate.

    Realistically, we need to see if this new mutant strain is actually a problem or just another media blown up alarm. If you look at the chart of cases vs time, it is not apparent that any government steps achieved very much. It did cost an enormous amount of money however. I appreciate there is public pressure to "do something", but I'm not convinced the steps are very effective

    Nope finally got it booked 5 and a half months after the second jab .. so whatever they are or aren't suggesting it's a load of bollox, NHS text basically saying book now .. surgery saying 6 months, think they are making their own rules as they go along, as proven by my booking !

    The Doctor in SA who was the first to identify it said the symptoms are similar to a mild cold............but don't let a good crisis go to waste.

    Moderna not approved yet in Aus. as a booster and time interval after second dose injections is 6 months. I have had 2 AZ shots and await a Pfizer booster. My husband is more interesting as he has had 2 Moderna injections.

    viruses typically mutate into less bothersome strains before dying out.

    while i'm on, i sincerely hope that all the idiots, especially those of a religious bent, who don't believe in evolution have the i.q. to understand that mutating viruses are actually evolving.

    And viruses don't make conscious choices of what move to make next either.

    Their evolutionary path is determined by chance mutation and ease of host infection.

    This, in all probability, leads to successful mutations which don't kill the host but are really transmissible away from it.

    Viruses only evolved 6,000 years ago according to creationists.
