    Some of the vulnerable are doctors, nurses, teachers, etc. So you would be happy to have even less services and social interaction than now?

    And I didn't say necessarily it was stupid for Covid reasons. It was mainly stupid to go abroad then get upset when you had to quarantine on return. That was entirely predictable, very PS.
    Yeh make it up to suit your own argument.....

    At the time the mandate was not "non-essential travel only".

    Tell you what - stay home for the rest of your life, and put your head under the quilt. You'll be safe there.

    False dichotomy. Another cretinous fallacy. Keep 'em coming.

    Just saying those of you trotting out the official line and the same old crap (no-ones mentioned killing your granny) yet....

    Its not facebook, no-one knows who you are on here, there is no need to show off how "covid friendly" you are to impress your mates.

    Trump's got it. Boris had it. Why do you think you are special?
