    Just an example of the sort of censorship or limiting of discussion that was mentioned earlier in the thread:

    upload_2021-12-10_6-25-28.png

    Whether one agrees with the man or not, he is entitled to give his viewpoint and people should be free to discuss it and even argue against him if they so wish. It should not be up to 'big tech' to decide what is 'misleading' or not, or indeed direct the narrative on what can and can't be discussed. Whilst in this case this is a politician, I have seen this happen on numerous occasions throughout the pandemic with learned people including doctors and professors (indeed, there was a court case recently by a doctor who was banned from Twitter, yet the court agreed he was correct!) - this is indicative of the lack of balance throughout, and that in turn along with shoddy data and lies aplenty means that there is a growing number of people who trust absolutely nothing now.

            I'm not really sure what this trust is in other people, why do you distrust other people.
            In what context is that, is it in regards that people are out to do you harm purposely?

            Yes, had people harm Miss Jiff and me, people that try to con you etc etc if some starts to be freindly then it's because they want something and i'll be the losser so i don't go there, we have had so many story told about us we just don't get involed with people now, if they don't no anything they make it up and that's the bit that hurts etc etc so we have a quite life, as some one said "once bullyed always bullyed"

              Ok @Jiffy ,had no idea you had had such a bad time.
              I think being wary of any one who appears too friendly who you don't actually know is a good plan.

              But even I :biggrin: think there is probably more decent people out there, than bad.

                  True - trust is built up when you see how people treat you over a long period of time. But once you have built up that trust all barriers come down.

                  Experience has also shown me that people who you work with are never trustworthy - they are there for themselves and no one else. Anyway, I've left that all behind now.

                  You see the true character of someone where money is involved - look at all the heart ache caused when there is an inheritance to dish out.

                  As they say, the love of money is the root of all evil.

                        Have you seen the 6 o'clock news?

                        The BBC makes Omicron sound like an impending zombie apocalypse.

                        Omicron could be the dominant variant by the end of December they say. Good - that means that the more deadly Delta variant is being ousted.

                        Vaccines are not as effective at preventing mild symptoms - who cares if you get the sniffles - take an aspirin and move on.

                        MP saying that hospitals could be flooded with covid patients - take a look at South Africa where Omicron is already the dominant variant.

                        The BBC really do need to look at the facts - and not sensationalise unnecessarily - they are starting to irritate me now...

                          I agree to a point - however, when folks are seeing their livelihoods destroyed and they have no control over it, they will go looking for someone to blame.

                              If the government idiots that run DEFRA cant even work out if a dead alpaca, (Geronimo), had TB, can we really trust the other bunch of "experts" running covid.
