Fake vegans like Ebdon enjoy horse racing, but authentic vegans like Vodkadiet advocate eating other people's children.

That's what I have learned from this thread. <ok>

He's a professionally trained healer, apparently.

I just think the long term consequences of this lockdown will far outweigh any good that the government is trying to do. In the UK we’re talking about a virus that has killed a total of 33 people under the age of 40 with no underlying health conditions, out of a population of around 30 million.

To put that into perspective, an average of 49 people are struck by lightning every year.

I didn’t say that. There are always those who will be more at risk with any virus or flu, but that doesn’t mean the result is to shut down the country.

Common flus have a vaccine.

Yet thousands still die from flu annually.

Yes.

But the NHS is designed with the capacity to cope with common flu hospitalisations (in theory at least). It’s not designed to cope with the hospitalisations from an additional virus if left to spread unchecked.

It turns out that the NHS has not been overwhelmed by Covid-19, as many predicted it would. The nurses in these hospitals have so much time in their hands that they can spend their days making TikTok videos.

Hmm.

The lockdown has prevented the NHS from being overwhelmed, therefore there was no need for a lockdown.

Brilliant.

There is no evidence that the lockdown did any such thing. There is a lot of evidence to suggest being outside is something that helps fight the virus.

If you want to stay inside and lock yourself away then that’s your prerogative, but don’t force others to follow suit.

Re: Peter Ebdon

Yeah, better to force people to catch the virus and die. You certainly have the moral high ground.

They’re the kind of people that if they catch the virus they’ll infect others and risk more lives before they die.

(I don’t want The Ace to catch the virus, by the way.)

His type have caused many more deaths than there would have been. At the very least these retards deserve to be in an ICU for 4 weeks (if only to keep them off the streets for a while).

Please don’t put words into my mouth, I said nothing of the sort. All I’m saying is people need to decide what they want to do, whether that’s to stay in or go about their lives. I’m not telling people either way.

The problem is though, the risk isn't just to yourself. If you go out, you could infect others. It's not just you that suffers from your decisions.

There are people like shop workers, bus and train drivers, some school staff, hospital workers and carers that have to go to work because they're key workers. A person who decides they want to go and spend the afternoon in the park or sunbathing at the beach risks passing these key workers on the way there or back and infecting them. Then the one who is infected goes home and infects their families etc.

I might agree with you if the only person who is affected by the decision is the person who is making the decision themselves.

There's always a risk that a persons actions could have a negative impact on others, but that doesn't mean that their freedoms get curbed because of it. People seem a bit too happy to be living under this authoritarianism. That's very worrying.

Yes. The freedom to spread Covid 19 and kill lots of people.

It is similar to the mentality with Republicans in America. "I have the freedom to buy a gun and shoot people with it. It"s in the constitution!"
