With a childhood friend, we were part of a team of volunteers that helped build a school near Arusha in Tanzania. The most rewarding thing anyone can do. Not been able to head back to Africa since but certainly something I'm proud of along with nearly a decade of work in the NHS in the 90s/00s before the hospital I worked in closed. Some great friends made.
oh and being called 'petal' and derided by Herbivore and the TWTD mob ranks pretty high.
Love how you accuse someone one of being a bully by being a horrid little bully. As long as it gives you a feeling of real superiority that’s fine. Have a great Christmas and i will try and get over this and enjoy mine.
I was a triage nurse at Harold Wood in the early 00s. Funny how the regulars round on people on here really. If you don't agree with total lockdown measures you're instantly someone who doesn't follow the rules and selfish. The usual sanctimonious polarised arguments. I like all the saints on here have followed all the rules TO THE LETTER. have worn a mask before they were compulsory and jabbed as soon as possible. I'm not bothered about the football games being called off, I was simply saying we need to protect the vulnerable by being sensible and considerate. There is sometimes that middle ground to things and I always try to find it.
Some on here can be very aggressive from their moral perch which provokes an aggressive (I guess that's the intention) and sometimes childish response.
time to change the record pal. Yes, it is a serious illness but it's weakening and we simply cannot lock ourselves away forever. Protect the vulnerable and the healthy can continue to live their lives. The answer to the 'overwhelming the NHS' narrative is for this useless self serving government to fund it and staff properly and responsibly. No more sensationalist fear mongering please.
Hope they privatise the nhs as it seems to be the only way as it just can’t cope! We must never ever question this government’s decisions as they only have our interests at heart. As long as the government beat those worst case modelling scenarios then they’ve done an awesome job!!
Only kidding of course! 1hr tops of outside time is best for all. Pre-book your fourth jab asap.
Calm down - all just banter. Save your sanctimony.
