GOT my jab next week. Afraid s *** less.
I believe I last had an injection in 1964 and I didn’t half wail.
Read our coronavirus live blog for the current news & updates …
I have actually constantly been a little bit of a coward when it pertains to stuff like this.
I remember my papa taking me to the regional surgery in Middlesbrough in 1973 because I wasn’t feeling too good.
The medical professional recommended I ought to have a blood test and got this big syringe out. I immediately passed out on the floor. Went house untouched.
Sorry, it’s how I am.
In truth, my action to physicians is the very same as how my pet dog, Jessie, responds to the vet.
Other than I do not actually wee on the flooring in terror. Or, at least, just rarely.
Likewise, I keep hearing about side-effects from good friends who have currently had their jab.
Most of them say it was great. A couple of state they had a headache.
I don’t like headaches. This frets me. But I’ll still be having my jab. The something that DOESN’T stress me, not from another location, is embolism.
You may have checked out that a bunch of European nations have actually suspended use of the AstraZeneca vaccine due to the fact that some individuals who had them later on developed clots. And some died from them. The number has to do with 37 out of 17 million.
This proves to me a few things.
First, that politicians simply do not understand statistics and danger. Especially French and Slovenian political leaders.
Second, that the EU is still riven with a hatred and enormous envy of the UK today.
Envy at the speed and efficiency with which we have presented our vaccination program, compared to the hopeless mess in which the European Union discovers itself. Never was there a much better advert for Brexit. The very same dimbo, embittered, EU politicians who railed against the UK “hoarding” the vaccine are now recommending it threatens.
If they were a bit brighter they would understand there is no meaningful threat from the vaccine. Blood clots prevail.
According to all the data currently assembled, the variety of clots discovered amongst people who have had the jab is LOWER than you would anticipate typically in the population, without a jab.
This is the only point that matters. There’s no significant link between the injection and blood clots.
That’s why– a little late in the day, as ever– those EU nations are now poised to confess they were utterly and absolutely incorrect.
THREATENING THE LIVES OF A LOT OF
But the damage has actually been done by their stupidity.
Their produced worries about the injection may well put a lot of people off having the vaccine.
That implies take-up will be a lot lower than we may have hoped. And that will cost lives– more individuals will pass away of Covid.
And it will hold up our attempts to go back to a degree of normality.
It’s exceptional that in order to save the European Union– which truly is now under threat– the politicians of France and Germany would endanger the lives of many.
But that’s the EU for you. Hopeless, bullying, devious, bureaucratic and long past its sell-by date.
So I’ll be along to the clinic. If you’re in East Kent next Wednesday and hear a piercing scream, you’ll understand I have actually been done.
Horrible sharp things, needles. I’ll need a couple of glasses of Jack Daniel’s to quell the worry.
‘Cancer cell to culture’
WHAT would you do if you heard your young kids were listening to Cardi B’s dirty tune WAP?
Difficulty is, the tune was so ubiquitous– and popular with the under-tens!– they might barely prevent it.
At last someone has actually grumbled.
The brilliant black analyst Candace Owens asked despairingly: What sort of country have we become?
And she added straight to the rapper: “You are a cancer cell to culture. Young black women are having their minds poisoned by what you are attempting to plan and sell to them as ’em powerment’.
” I are among the few that has the courage to inform you the reality.”
Rather right, Candace.
And what sort of country is it where people wish to ban everything from Homer to Dr Seuss– but champion X-rated obscenities from a non-talent such as Cardi B?
Call it a day, Chief
THE females’s vigil for Sarah Everard, who was murdered, became a rowdy and violent demonstration.
The authorities were probably justified in reacting the method they did.
There are credible reports that the entire thing was pirated by the Trotskyite nutters of the Socialist Workers Party.
But there’s no doubt the coppers behave extremely differently depending upon who is objecting.
Anti-lockdown demo– batons out and great deals of arrests. Black Lives Matter demo– police wait (or go down on one knee).
I think the ladies’s vigil got their goat since there were lots of airheads with placards checking out “defund the cops”.
There have actually been require the boss of the Metropolitan Authorities, Cressida Dick, to resign.
She must have resigned years earlier, after running the 2005 police operation that led to the deadly shooting of innocent Brazilian Jean Charles de Menezes on a London Tube train.
Balls to the Wags
LOCKDOWN or no lockdown, the Wagatha Christie fight continues.
Rebekah Vardy has actually published a none too subtle quote for the attention of her nemesis, Coleen Rooney.
” They say individuals in glass homes should not toss stones … but when karma is ready she will toss a bowling ball at your head.”
Righto, got that, thank you.
The problem is, Coleen probably believes karma is a deliciously creamy Indian curry. And is questioning how it can raise a bowling ball.
Mom of all messes
I’VE been seething since I check out “lazy mum” Kerry Davies in yesterday’s Sun.
She doesn’t appear to put in much discipline over her 2 children. They can do basically what they like. Consisting of video gaming for 12 hours at a stretch.
The meals the household consume are reheated convenience food because Kerry can’t be ar * ed to cook properly.
This isn’t parenting. It’s called being an idle, self-centered cow.
Kerry admits that she sometimes tells her boy, “There’s more to life than gaming”. However he “doesn’t actually listen”.
That’s since he is a CHILD. And kids are not capable of making the best options in life.
That’s why we have things called PARENTS.
It may be effort sometimes. It may be tiring.
But kids require from their mums and daddies a little bit of structure and discipline.
Bo in a China store
THE Federal government is rightly being questioned over its determination to cosy approximately China in return for a few great trade deals. China is a foul, totalitarian country. It denies its subjects human rights (such as voting). It locks up dissidents, and bullies every nation around it. Here’s the important things, Boris. If you sup with the devil, ensure you have a long spoon. And use it to poke him in the eye.
Issue is Harry
I SEE that “Megnarry” have been maintaining their privacy as more information emerge of their post-interview dealings with the royals. Once once again, they appear to have actually stuck the boot in– this time through Meghan’s friend, United States broadcaster Gayle King.
Apparently Harry had a good long talk with his father and his bro and didn’t much enjoy it. Oooh, I wish I had the transcript of those exchanges. “You whining, entitled, little ginger nurk …” etc
. The unfortunate thing is, Harry does not understand the degree to which the British public has turned versus him and his missus, according to the surveys.
All they hear are the whisperings of approval from similarly conceited US slebs and deadbeats like Hillary Clinton. One day he will regret all this, I think.
Plants slabs THE nationwide derangement continues. Kew Gardens is to put labels on its plants discussing their involvement, ready or otherwise, in the servant trade. Naughty plants! Sugar walking stick, for instance. This is “decolonising” Kew, according to some bloke there who was presumably provided the job by mistake. I do hope that henceforth they will provide due prominence to flowers of colour, rather than overbearing white things like lilies etc. When is this idiocy going to stop?

Net closing in around Sturgeon
THE web is closing in around that big-headed little munchkin Nicola Sturgeon.
Conservative MP David Davis claims to have evidence that the Scottish National Celebration leader was not telling the entire fact about her involvement in the prosecution of former leader Alex Salmond. (Yup, they all dislike each other up there).
My guess is she won’t be leader past Easter. On the other hand, her celebration is set to LOSE seats in the upcoming election.
Current polling says there is now a majority in Scotland for staying within the Union.
See? There is some great news around, if you look for it.
Boris Johnson specific that he will be having the Oxford AstraZeneca covid vaccine
