^   One woman's "sincere contribution" is another woman's "rant".    Possibly because it sounds like a contribution to the Daily Express.

Well you can turn off the match if it embarrasses you so much.

Not to worry Apollo.    There is always at least one like that.    I think he is Ghostbuster's wee brother!    Obviously 4 days in a row too much.    Andy looked stiff and sore.     He will have to build up his stamina and the Challenger Tour is the place to do it.

Brilliant video. Increasingly it is embarrassing to be Scottish.  SNP have become a second rate one woman cult ignoring  abject failure to deliver in all important areas of Scottish life. They don’t like Boris. He is a toff. Big deal. That is not a fit  argument to reverse six centuries of shared endeavour. It seems to be the only  argument they are making.  It’s like the school playground except even more puerile. 

I can find reasons to dislike Boris without even considering the "toff" business and the only reason I can find for being embarrassed about being Scottish is the existence of "The Scotch Cringe".     Much reduced but still around.

Even for those shielding and only taking food deliveries, the gamble is scary. The gamble that you perfectly decontaminate every single item that has been delivered. Every time.

I'd take the teensy weensy chance of a life altering reaction to a jab over that any day.

Maybe Aileen is thinking she has managed that gamble successfully for almost a year while the virus was raging.    She doesn't have to rush into a decision.

Counting the errors in that post is quite a giggle. Hopefully that'll be the end of the iluvandy pedantry game lol

I see you've progressed to giving out terrible medical advice as well. That's an unfortunate development. Frown

Why don't you stop your girlish giggles and let me know what the errors are.   If they exist I will apologise for them.    As for Aileen she is perfectly capable of making her own decisions.     The elderly are more at risk of severe illness but the younger age groups do the most of the spreading of the virus.    So if Aileen stays at home she is really only putting herself at risk.

My apologies for the misunderstanding, and in fact I do now recall you saying that you'd had your first dose and that you were fine afterwards, but I'd still prefer to wait a bit longer to see how things work out generally.

It is your choice Aileen and as you are not gallivanting about the country you can afford to wait and see.

I see I've been criticised for not having it, and even been called 'insane', but my feelings towards it are the same as yours, i.e. I might consider having it at a later date.  Meanwhile given all the precautions I take plus the fact that I don't often see anybody, I'd say that my chances of contracting covid aren't very high.  Also by not having it at least it meant that one other person who might really have needed it could have had it.

Aileen I meant I was willing to wait to see the end result of the vaccination programme rather than be in competition over it.     I actually had my first dose nearly 3 weeks ago and had no problem with it.    Like you, I would have been willing to wait and let someone who has to be out and about have theirs but that would further complicate a difficult enough task.

Ah, quite the contrary! Not much of challenge in this exchange, alas. There could have been an interesting discussion about why the Scottish vaccination effort is lagging behind the rest of the UK. I suppose that might require a level of intellectual honesty that's uncomfortable for most nationalists.

Ah well.

The original challenge was to spot the difference.    I found that very easy.    In fact there were another couple of slips I didn't bother to mention    As for the vaccination effort I'm willing to wait a bit longer to see how it plays out.     I know a couple of 70 year olds who had their first dose yesterday and all seemed to be well.     Admittedly that was in Edinburgh and no doubt there will be pockets where there are problems.    Meanwhile I have to suffer Ruth the Mooth.

Ah yes, I shall *checks notes* attempt to mock the use of data to make a point. If only iluvandy's brain was as quick as her mouth! lol

You do hate being challenged.    At least my brain is quick enough to recognise the difference between all elderly residents in care homes have been offered a vaccine and "all care home residents in the UK are now vaccinated"

^ And I'm still waiting for a response from you as to why you think that my refusal to have the vaccine at this time was 'misguided'.

He's not very good at thinking up answers, Aileen.      He'll look for a graph to help him.
26  General Community / Chit Chat / Re: Scottish politics on: February 02, 2021, 11:29 pm
No, more just some developed thinking on obvious questions - 'Ireland manages' isn't really that

Admittedly that is a very simple answer to a very complicated situation but then so is "Stronger Together".     That doesn't do much for me.
27  General Community / Chit Chat / Re: Corona virus on: February 02, 2021, 04:50 pm
^   That is not a proper response.    You made a mistake.    End of story.

^    It is ugly.     I can face up to that.    You can't face up to your faults.       Rolling Eyes

^Are we now looking for sincerity in politicians?

^    I coined quite an ugly word there.     Doubt it will ever make it into the OED.      Nevertheless nothing detracts from the fact that you wrongly quoted Matt Hancock.    You seem to find it difficult to say "I was wrong".
