  1. I am sure I remember when they all wheeled out their experts who said that not only were face masks useless, they would actually be dangerous. Or did I dream that? I think these are the experts bill is talking about. Or maybe it's the experts at the WHO who said this was not serious at all. Then after lobbying these experts are now changing their opinions. Funny that. It would be educational to look back at those interviews but I doubt many will do that. According to some on here, COVID is also a cure for other health conditions. It's cured flu completely (ONS statistics), a
  2. I gave you facts about the numbers. You can check them. I told you about personal experience and why this is so important to me to find out the truth. Bluedell responded in a childish manner (in my opinion) and I reacted. I'll just leave it for a while because I'm not getting the feeling that anyone else is interested or bothered - which is fine. Good luck. Cheers.
  3. I was wondering why you'd be a moderator as it clearly wasn't based on your ability to engage in rational debate. But now I know .. it's down to your incredible wit. You win though. You've closed me down. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
  4. I'm not sure if that's a question or a statement. The actuaries have excellent data and have accurately predicted death rates over the past 20 years in particular. They predicted many more deaths in 2020 but this was before anyone was talking about COVID 19. They now have the challenge of predicting the devastating effects these restrictions will have on mortality rates in the future. I've seen some early indications of this assessment and it does really worry me. I know it worries many people in the know in the NHS but they're not allowed to speak out. If what we are being told is the t
  5. I'm so sorry to hear that but I completely understand. This is why I'm so passionate about this issue. There are three instances in particular that annoy me at the moment: 1. There are very important people in my life who are not receiving the medical treatment because of this lockdown and subsequent restrictions and it's going to be the cause of them dying. That is a fact! 2. There are people who have died and their families are being told the cause of death is COVID when they know it's not. That might seem a trivial thing to many of you, but to my family its ver
  6. I'm fine to talk about it I feel you want to, but they're not caused by COVID.
  7. In October 2019, the prediction was for an 83k increase in deaths for 2020. There are many reasons for this. The problem we now have is that there is a knock on effect of deaths which will be caused by the effects of the lockdown (e.g. Lack of cancer screening) and these numbers are what really frighten me.
  8. Corona virus does exist because it's well documented over the past 70 years, but what I don't believe is that it's so much more dangerous than previous strains. There is now overwhelming evidence that the numbers are grossly exaggerated. People are dying with it, but most of them are not dying from it - they're dying of other chronic and pre-existing conditions. In each of these cases, COVID was being out as the cause of death. Do you know how many people die each year because of flu in England? It's about 17,000 and that remains fairly constant, although in 2015 it was more severe and al
  9. I don't want to stray too much off topic but we've never distanced for any corona virus in the past so I've no idea why this one is any different. The rate of infection and death rate is hugely exaggerated as is being proven by NHS whistleblowers. I hope this scandal is exposed at some stage but by that stage the damage is already done. I expect history will show that lockdown and social distancing killed more people and ruined more lives than the so called virus will. And yet no one in the media is strong enough to challenge the obvious holes in this horrible 'hoax'. As it's the Rangers
  10. I agree the sign was rather stupid, but for what it's worth I am one of a growing majority that believe this COVID 'pandemic' is no more of a virus than many previous years. And there s no doubt it does impinge on freedoms which I think is unacceptable. So please don't conflate these things as I think it just dilutes your argument.
  11. They are 'preventing' the youth players from getting game time because they're better players. It's 100% down to the youth players to show that they're better. If they are, they'll get game time. In my opinion I don't think any of the current players are good enough to break into the first team. Kelly has an opportunity to prove me wrong this season on his loan, and I hope he does. The rest are good players, but do we really think that Kennedy can be anywhere near as effective as Hagi or Kent? Do we think Patterson can do the job of Tav? I don't. It's an inconvenient truth but the only
  12. I must have missed this caveat. Where did the club say that? Regarding the OP, for what it's worth I'm sick of the political stuff becoming conflated with the club. Equally I'm sick of the increasing restrictions on free speech. As far as the trans debate is concerned, I have a view that would be very unpopular with all trans people but I don't want our club to get involved in that debate. Leave that to the politicians and law makers to sort out (although in my opinion this current government mob will screw that up too). Our club has demonstrated that it can't even get enough
  13. The signing of Hagi is a no brainer under normal circumstances. It represents excellent value for money and the high likelihood of a large profit at some point. I found myself reading this news and yet not being as pleased as I would normally be. The reason is that I've still got this deep rooted fear of the impact that this lockdown is having (and will continue to have) on the financial stability of our club. It would appear that despite overwhelming evidence that this lockdown was completely unnecessary, and in fact more damaging than the 'disease' itself, our government (and
  14. I don't think there's any point having backups (goal keepers or otherwise) that can't compete for a first team place. Those not in the first eleven should be fighting for their places. Wes was never going to become our number one again so he is better away. I'd much prefer to see McCrorie back and pushing for the jersey. None of the players we let go were never a serious threat to any of the first eleven. Good luck to them as I've said, but we need to keep moving forward.
