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

She's not right at all. She's just been used to highlight the failure of of the British authorities to control the ignorant and selfish who expect their freedoms to be uncompromised. It's one reason w

This illustrates one of the problems with the internet.  This was a post intended to be amusing and based on my personal experience of Barnsley and seen in the context of preceding posts I assert that it was.

 

Yet if you formed your opinion based on responses to my post pages later you might conclude that I was some Nazi hell bent on pushing old people into the gas chambers.

 

That is totally untrue and pretty much the opposite of my position.

 

If you look at the history of people who responded I think a fair few can be categorised as trolls on a variety of subjects.

Does that also apply to people who don't follow that religion?

I'd say it's more about how long a body is viable. Over 70s probably account for most hospital admissions simply because the body no longer repairs itself as efficiently as under 70 year old.

Medical science may have made us live longer, but from a personal viewpoint 70 was about the age I started to go downhill physically.

IMO religion picked 70 because most may have died by that age at that time.

Back to the OP myself...  I would love to see a before Covid photograph and a current photograph of all the pro lockdown advocates here on TV.  What was their BMI then and what is their BMI now?  Have they done anything to improve their health during this pandemic or are they still the same and want everybody else to suffer for their choices?  The biggest “mask nazi” in my former condo was an overweight alcoholic who spent every evening at the pub as soon as they opened.

Something I've noted over the past time of corona, is the number of people that want OTHER people to save them, instead of taking responsibility for themselves.

They are taking responsibility, they are are also considerate of others and do not want to harm them.

 

Though some only care about themselves and dont care what harm they may do to others.

Hey, it is climate change. We should all wear masks and keep that from happening.

   Oh yes I am being sarcastic, in case you missed it.   I am a senior as well, but I

would rather live another 20 to 30 years, thank you very much, so I do care how

people act.    I would like to see the young people from 6 years and older to wear mask

when ever they are out in public.   The Red Necks, and anti-maskers, and  such

can just stay home and order in.   Cautious and serious minded people who care

about others as well as them selves can go about their lives.  The rest can go to blazes.

Geezer

or put another way: you are retired so you get your pension

regardless how indebted the state, businesses, and workers get as they feed you your pension.

that matters not to you because you wont pay it off,

that is someone elses problem, things are fine

as long as you get yours

Pre payed. 44 years, every week. And you're right, highly unlikely that I'll get it all back.

subsidized from day 1

The opposite. How little you know. If my NI contributions had been put into a defined benefits pension scheme from day one, I'd be drawing a far bigger pension than I am now.

Most people start going downhill at 19. Medical fact.
