She lives in Barnsley.   If you lived in Barnsley death would be an option worth considering.

that 30 year old with asthma may do whatever he see fit, while the rest of the world carry on trying to put food on the table

Well said and agree completely.

But unfortunately this thread has somewhat deteriorated in an Us versus Them discussion (the younger generation vs the old gits), which is entirely besides the point.

Finding a middle ground between protecting the vulnerable while allowing the rest of us to go on with our lives does not have to be a challenge, but we need to get rid of the hysteria currently governing decisions. 

Some seem to forget that a life completely void of risk is not worth living...

'the younger generation vs the old gits' maybe your own prejudices are showing.

 

Shouldn't it be 'younger <deleted> v old gits' or just young v old.

I genuinely have no idea how you got there.

Sorry, but I appear to have misunderstood what you were saying, or responded to the wrong poster, or it could be the "new" format confused me. Being old and near death ( sarcasm alert ) I can't take change easily, and get confused frequently- it's a wonder I can put my pants on the right way around. 🙂

She has a right to that POV but she doesn't have a right to project that to all people that are at risk. For example, a 30 year with asthma that statistically most certainly does have multiple decades left of life span under normal circumstances.

What does POV mean? Come on now Jingthing, Is this you getting to be like these posters who think they are texting?

Yes, but I am getting fed up with posters using initials much of the time, they are either poor typists, or just plain lazy, I don't mind the obvious ones, or anyone using initials where the words were already used in that topic.

My grandparents at 87 & 89 completely agree with this woman. Being stuck at home during their remaining years, not allowed contact with friends or family, is not considered living to them. 

 

My 87 year old aunt does not agree with this woman.  She cannot because she died from Covid in April 2020.
