The tribute to Freddie gig in front of 80K ppl - were any TWTDers there? Amazing stuff.
Started 20 mins ago, the docu goes on to 01.30 approx, so still plenty of legs in it if you're up now.
|BMJ: "politicians and industry are guilty of â€śopportunistic embezzlementď|
at 05:45 4 Feb 2021
â€ś..science is being suppressed for political and financial gainâ€ť in the mould of â€śsome of historyâ€™s worst autocrats and dictatorsâ€ť -
I know most here knew anyway, but when the BMJ spells it out like that it really drives it home. Beyond shock, anger, disgust. French people would have started a revolution by now, yet some Brits are still saying 'poor BJ, hes' doing his best'

|Outrageous scam to end all outrageous scams|

"Invitation to accept or reject your coronavirus vaccination" - arrived in my junk mail this morning.
"NHS - National Health Service" (complete with usual NHS logo)
"Confirm your coronavirus vaccination
You are selected
The NHS is performing selections for coronavirus vaccination on the basis of family genetics and medical history.
You have been selected to receive a coronavirus vaccination.
Use this service to confirm your coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination.
You will need to:
have 2 doses of the coronavirus vaccination at 2 appointments
book both appointments at the same time
get the 2nd dose 3 to 4 weeks after getting your 1st dose
Who can use this service
You can only use this service if you have received an email/SMS regarding this invitation. You can not use this service for anyone other than yourself.
You are also free to reject this invitation, your appointment will be issued to the next person in line in that case.
Please confirm or reject your invitation by selecting an option below."
Well of course I was initially delighted, but when you click "accept" as I did, you're then taken to a new window where you fill in ALL your personal details - full name, geog addy, DOB, mother's maiden name. You then continue via another new window - where you're asked for your credit card & bank details!! at which point I obviously hit the back-button & deleted every bit of info before closing the window.
Then copied the email address it had come from <email@example.com> . Please warn your older rellies/friends, as they may well be expecting vacc invitations fairly soon. I'll also be reporting this to 'Which' mag, who are currently keeping a watch on this tye of scam in particular.

Was going to change to 02 but have no been on hold 22 mins just waiting to speak to an adviser, looks like this potential new customer's business is not important at all!
Horrified to find yesterday that Vodaphone who I was with, will now be charging me ÂŁ365 annually for just switching my phone on whilst out walking the mutt for an hour daily, even if I make 0 calls & send 0 texts!! (complaint in the offing to Ofgem).

Accidentally switched stations, hadn't intended to listen, not previously a fan of hers - but by heck has she got a great voice, and it's a great listen!

Hope he's OK, hasn't been around lately except saw his name briefly on Sun night - sent him a quick PM but by the time I'd posted it he'd gone offline, & my PM hasn't yet been opened.
|Why did this mutant strain originate from SE England? đź¤”|
at 18:14 20 Dec 2020
Whilst a couple of other European countries (Denmark, which may have been down to mink? & the Netherlands) have a small number of cases, the numbers have obviously been considerably more here.
Is the mutant version here down to mink too? or something else - anyone know?
Whilst out walking the mutt a couple of hours ago, met neighbour who's a NHS medic who assured me that the vaccine being rolled out does also protect against this mutant strain, which is at least something.
