Scotland looking to move back into tiers come May. The tiers themselves are much stricter to get down to more normality and are based on WHO advice from November, before any vaccine program. Seems never ending.

Unfair to Chuck McGill to b
So your statements in this thread were meant to be civilised debate? :lol:

I called Peter Hitchen a melodramatic idiot because that is exactly what he is being. He got the vaccine because he wanted the protection but wanted to try to make some ludicrous point about only doing it because he was coerced to try to avoid being shown to be full of shit about it being unnecessary. He is a rich famous notoriously stubborn white bloke. No way he was coerced and felt he had no choice.

Under normal circumstance those who refuse without a genuine medical condition (usually a previous reaction to a vaccine, an autoimmune issue or pregnancy) are either ill-informed or selfish or both. In a pandemic I'll add idiots.

Paying taxes, abiding by laws and being vaccinated for the greater good are part of the social contract we should all abide by.

As for not defending your previous statements perhaps you are just trying to avoid defending your views because you can't?

He didn't get the vaccine because he wanted protection. To think so betrays your ignorance of his views.
What previous statement am I not defending? I hope you'll forgive my brevity in responding, but this is a rather trivial pursuit.

I'm not entirely convinced that the tiers as they were prior to Christmas will be exactly the same come May time. I think there will be differences in what is allowed in each level with a little bit more leeway.

The First Minister mentioned in parliament earlier that there may be a revision of the Level 4 restrictions next week that will come into force on the 15th of March. She also noted at this point that a fuller plan of what is happening after the 26th of April will be announced.

I think we'll see a revision of what we're allowed to do in each level.

First line of his article:

Hypocritchens said:
So sorry, Your Majesty, but I have had my first Covid vaccination for wholly selfish reasons.

So? He wants to be able to travel to visit family/loved ones in other countries. Nothing to do with protecting himself.
Does he think if he lived in a country where he wasn’t offered a vaccine for free he’d be able to visit his family more easily?

He’s in a privileged position to be able to see them as a result of the vaccine and he’s still whining about it.

It’s a stupid argument designed to appeal to his base while doing something that they would otherwise have an issue with.

‘Yeah I got the vaccine but I only did it for selfish reasons guys, don’t worry I’m not a sheep’

Get vaccinated or kill Penna you selfish bastards

He chose to do so as the protection it provides is required for travel. So he chose. He could have chosen not to. That isn't bullying, it is adhering to another countries laws presumably.

A toddler of a man throwing his toys out of his pram because another country won't bow to him.

How about start by explaining then justifying almost every post that you have made in this thread. That would be a good start.

BTW do you usually try to be so pompous? Your last line brought up visions of a top hat, a monacle and a long straighten moustash.

Just 725 patients admitted today, not been that low since early October.
