Have a family member living in Galicia, Spain, who sent me this today

https://www.thelocal.es/20210223/spains-galicia-to-make-covid-vaccine-compulsory-and-fine-those-****fuse-it-up-to-60k

Naturally she's just put the house up for sale - but they have all region borders locked so she can't escape.


I've been expecting this but it didnt make it any less nauseating a read.

I feel like they're gearing up towards this here - the attacks on the 'antivaxxers' getting louder and louder - if they think threats are a good way to coerce, then their psyops teams needs replacing imo - this wont end well.

How anyone can trust anything this gove (pardon the pun) says is beyond me.


Constantly shifting goalposts, clearly designed to stop or delay public unrest, then a large proportion pretty much bribed to stay quiet - can we say 12 months on that we would accepted these terms for the end result (one of the highest death rates in world, but im sure it would have been much worse without lockdownLaugh), freedoms eroded, economy being held up like a drunk at the end of the bar (who is about to collapse monumentally), mental health destroyed, educations ruined - and that's with the naive optimism that were 'in the final stretch'.


I find it astounding, people are still listening to them, never mind still trusting them implicitly, and actively supporting them in dividing the country even further - literally doing their job for them, behavioral analysis team at SAGE due a huge rise imo, they genuinely deserve it.

Those same people that were manipulated to protest did not even blink when those behind the Jacob Blake killing were not charged. They probably do not even know about it now the news cycle has moved.The same applies with Covid. If it did not dominate the media and we all just carried on people would feel very differently.If cancer deaths were reported day after day on the news people would demand something was done.If pollution deaths were reported day after day on the news people would demand something was done.People are so easily played.


Exactly, it's extremely easy to manipulate the masses from stances such as "no masks are required " early 2020 to parents believing kids should be muzzled all day in schools. Very few people have the courage to go against the majority once the flock of fools start moving towards their respective sheep pens- years ago you would be deemed insane going against the trend the earth wasn't flat and now we are expected to live like this with a virus that mainly kills those at the end of life so mild for the majority most dont know they have it.

If our health becomes the matter of the state where we lose control over our own bodies without restrictions being imposed, why are we stopping at vaccines? If not taking a vaccine is deemed to be " not doing your bit" why not enforce compulsory blood donation with cards as not giving blood will cost lives - where is the line in the sand drawn? Why shouldn't people give blood to save lives with the same social responsibility or bone marrow- are some deaths more socially acceptable than others? People with immune conditions die of flu so that should be next along with getting rid of car travel due to air pollution deaths - maybe we can draw up a list of things we should be doing  but dont make it too long as exercise is key to avoid putting strain on the NHS. Compulsory exercise watched by a big brother eye enroute soon enough for those people who dont want to take responsibility over their own health and want everyone else to do it for them like overgrown babies

The French, Germans and almost the entire EU do not matter - most of them are playing politics and not taken the seriousness of Covid eg competing to open up economies; dissing a vaccine (unqualified) to try and cover their incompetence in procurement, etc.

I hope these countries put egos and politics aside instead have the health and safety of their citizens as top priority, not self-political interest.

Nobody is forcing you to have a vaccine, don’t have it if you are scared.

Probably because that would make very little difference. When people are so ill they're going to hospital they're already at the point where the virus can be having significant consequences. Stopping people getting to that stage is the key.

This's not how a vaccine works!


They won't change your DNA but can you 100% guarantee they will have zero effect on anyone's fertility?

That is a big call that I have not seen made elsewhere.

Covid had probably ravaged the infected to a point of return; numbers would not have saved the dead.

Prevention is better than cure.

Having extra staff would help to the extent that people in hospital would receive greater individual care than that with overstretched staff. But extra staff alone does not entail extra beds, ventilators, equipment, wards etc. Extra staff alone isn't changing capacity of patients that can be accommodated. And even if capacity is increased, the exponential way the virus spreads means that any extra number of beds across the infrastructure only buys a finite amount of time where a lockdown to stop the new higher capacity from being overwhelmed, would occur.

Number of staff is static for year .. Agency waste..
Management numbers tripled
extra beds, ventilators, equipment, wards etc. Too late.

inner,if you think i didnt mean extra staff,beds,ventilators etc then i should of been a bit clearer.
Report inner city sumo February 25, 2021 8:55 PM GMT
The issue is fundamentally the same even if you did. Increasing capacity by 20k beds probably gets you an extra week before a lockdown gets called, it's not the difference between none of this happening and all this happening and 120k dying.

my point was simply, many hands make like work.all we hear about is the nhs staff being overworked.if more staff,workload gets shared,less work per person therefore staff not overworked.no?
Report inner city sumo February 25, 2021 9:30 PM GMT
That wasn't the implication in your earlier message, it was that it was the difference between all this happening or not. I think in terms of spreading workload more healthcare staff would always be beneficial, pandemic or not. I can't imagine what a harrowing experience it has been on some of those wards through all this.

so i was right then? more staff,less workload per person,better care for patients,less chance of condition worsening or dying.no?

How many of the 120000 do you think would have lived with your extra nurses available?

'that might save the nhs without ruining our country'
What do you mean by the country being ruined? Clarify the exact nature of the ruination, and how are you envisaging the nurses specifically would have stopped it from happening.

dont you understand? we are being told we need to "save the nhs" because they are overrun.they wouldnt be if there was more of them.then they could give better care,then not as many may have died.

Deaths would be the same but theyd have one less reason to justify lockdown. It would make no difference as they would just make up another one.

Save the NHS is always banded about, the NHS have presided over the worst death rate of any country on the planet per person and has been breaking at the seems for years. If the NHS needs millions to remain inside to save it with other countries that have no NHS boasting better cancer / heart disease/ covid outcomes of comparable status ( not third world countries) what are we saving exactly.. thousands of elderly people  sent to their deaths in old folks homes with do not resuscitate orders from the NHS?

It wouldn't make much difference as explained earlier, the best way of stopping people from dying of covid is for people to not get covid in the first place. When people are sick enough to go to hospital for many it's essentially too late unfortunately. As previously stated an extra 20000 nurses just delays a lockdown for a week or two, it wouldn't stop lockdowns altogether.

But its cured homelessness, the stock markets and more importantly "the economy", even though everywhere's been shut for 6 months... its a miracle
