Listening to people talking about what a fucking success COVID has been for breaking down barriers in healthcare data and getting to do work they'd always wanted to do.

Struggling to resist unmuting to ask where the 100,000k dead factor into all of that.

Can't wait for "professionalisation" to kick in and I can finally be put living into the tomb.

KPMG boss Bill Michael quits after 'stop moaning' row


Quote
The UK chairman of KPMG has resigned following a row over comments he made at a meeting on Monday.

Bill Michael had reportedly told consultants to "stop moaning" about the impact of the pandemic and lockdown on people's lives, and to stop "playing the victim card"

I think the apology has lost almost any meaning whatsoever. Did it have any meaning? Has anyone who consistently does and says shit things ever meant it when they issued an apology? I have no idea. I'm in the abyss.

Now It's Ready, Steady, Drop! Dead That Is!!

"Lockdown is keeping people safe but stopping them spending money, so obviously this cannot be allowed to continue," Boris wanked on and on, as if he wasn't just a piece of shit.

Meanwhile Tim Martin wants the pubs open in April and some Tory MPs want all restrictions gone by May.

I really don't want a summer lockdown but these idiots are making it more likely.

Lots of reports of people having illegal parties and other types of gatherings but I think calling your makeshift bar the COVID arms before inviting people around is an extra level of thumbing your nose at everyone trying to comply with the lockdown. Only the owner was fined in that case, everyone else was allowed to leave.

The next lockdown will be too late, presumably, like all the others. Probably even later this time because Johnson will resist it for longer having gone on about how the easing of restrictions this time has to be "irreversible."

Can't help reading that in Charlie Kelly's voice. "So do. So doooo."

Gwyneth Paltrow was suffering from long COVID but now she's consulted a chiropractor and will sell you a selection of products to help treat long COVID including "a $220 pair of hiking shoes, a $145 hiking tank top, and an $8,600 gold necklace" and "a $500 infrared sauna blanket, a $98 oil, a $125 serum, and $125 overnight acid peel".

What the fuck is an 'infrared sauna blanket'? That's just a random assortment of words from a spam email.

I did have long COVID but now thanks to Gwyneth Paltrow’s advice I no longer suffer with a house.

Can I also nominate the man who didn't put his hand to his mouth when he coughed? We were on a narrow path and he wasn't wearing a mask, he was about 2m from me when he coughed and we were walking towards each other. I couldn't cross the road because it was a three lane A road with cars whizzing along.

Nearly a year into the pandemic and people still aren't putting their hand to their mouth or coughing into their elbow. He looked so happy as he walked past me having coughed everywhere. What a fuckwit.

Fairly cringeworthy homage to ‘Zulu’/Rourke’s drift with media class skeptics (Delingpole, Hartley Brewer et al) playing themselves as the plucky pith helmeted heros gunning down an army of, er,‘Karens’ a term that in their universe is seemingly somehow synonymous with anyone who believes the lockdown is necessary (should have gone with NPC instead if they wanted to force in a slightly dated buzzword: at least that term is broad enough to make some kind of logical sense). ‘Lockdown Skeptics Will Not Yield’ indeed.

Oof that oil is a bit expensive.

Not to be outdone by Ian Brown, the drummer out of Shed Seven has done a poem called "War On Civil Liberties Conscientious Objector". This was in October, don't know how I missed it.

Surely the biggest travesty here is that this person was allowed to be called Ranald Macdonald, instead of Ranald Macdanald (or indeed the obvious and ironic alternative alluded to in all the comments below). Haven't heard such an unsatisfying name since Chris Noth.
