So someone just asked Professor Jonathan Van-Tam on the daily press briefing a short while ago what the state of play was with camping as he had apparently been asked this question earlier last week. His response was along the lines of him knowing what the answer was, but he wasn't going to say what it was because he was waiting for the government to ask him for his answer. Or words to that effect. Make of that what you will. :unsure:😶

He cannot give the answer..That HAS to come from COBR (Cobra ?) or Boris or Patel or Hancock. They make the decisions and they must announce them (albeit based on his advice) !

Jonathan van tam is not being political at all,people bloody jumping to conclusions yet again ! He was asked last week, freely admitted he hadn’t given it thought. Asked again yesterday , had been approached by interested parties given it thought and had an answer when requested by the government. His advice whatever it is will be the medical implications, the government eventually will consider that along with the economic impact ...and tell us what we are doing and when ....

I don't want anyone to put me in a lockdown prison because I am in a particular high risk group, thank you. I am old enough to make my own decisions, and as I'm the one who would die I think I have the right to make those decisions for myself. After all, they have sufficient hospital facilities to cope with covid now, and I would be in the 'do not resuscitate or ventilate' group anyway, so all the nursing staff would have to do would be keep me comfortable until I'd passed. Heard from a good friend of mine the other day that her daughter, an ICU covid nurse in the Tyneside area, that they were so bored having nothing do this last week that they have started doing exercise classes at work to pass the time. Meanwhile, two friends of mine who have very worrying health conditions and need to be seen by consultant specialists asap are no further forward than they were over 2 months ago. And don't get me started on the cancer fiasco! :devilish: So don't anyone start lecturing to me...

If ever there was a selfish post it was that one. No thought whatsoever for anyone else who would be involved. Your death would NOT just involve you. What about the impact on your family and friends or are they of no consideration at all. I rather think that is a question to be asked and decided by myself and my family and friends ONLY, don't you? Or would you like the government to interfere with all independent thought going forward? Maybe you think life is so absolutely sacrosanct that the 'quality' doesn't count at all? I don't think that our government, or quite a few others around the world, considered the life of those living in care homes to be sacrosanct, do you? :mad: How do you propose to go about living a life that isn't 100% risk-free from covid-19 going forward?

If you want to keep something just to friends and family then just do that and not make statements about such things on a public forum.

And I will also post as I fancy, within the terms of the forum. I also asked not to lecture me. This is my opinion on my life, not your life. You can live your life however you see fit, that's the beauty of living in a democracy. Suppose you would be giving exactly the same advice about being selfish to my m-i-l, who might not live to see the end of this year, let alone the conquering of a virus? Guess she must also be extremely selfish for wanting to leave the house for a short while, or to see her family. Well good luck on that one! The bottom line is that if there is no 'vaccine' found for covid-19, which is highly likely, then how long is anyone in the high risk group expected to stay living in lockdown? Doesn't bear thinking about, which is basically the gist of my post. If...

Even urgent cases cannot be seen in the 2 week period after referral. You are not the only one affected Marie.

What about the impact on your family and friends or are they of no consideration at all. Don’t see anything selfish about that at all. Expecting a family member or friend to remain in lockdown against their will, is not loving or respecting them in the slightest. It entirely revolves around the selfish act of someone not being able to say good bye. I want my loved ones to live their lives as they see fit. If that means an earlier death I shall of course morn their death while celebrate they lived the life they choose. If ever there was a selfish post, it's certainly not Maries.
