Re: Saturday 4th & Sunday 5th December 2021

Hi All

Some great posts here today on the virus. Thank you.

I have too little time for politics these days. I’m interested in the Starmer Rayner dynamic. Is there a day I can go back to here to update myself? New posts on the topic very welcome of course ;-)

Hi All popped in to try and make sense of the U-turn.

Can I just check they have u-turned on the whole thing, but just on Paterson?

Great thread on hospitals.

Good news - the vaccines seem to work. Hospitals not overwhelmed with Covid.

Bad news - they are overwhelmed with backlogs of other conditions, so still vulnerable to even small Covid increases

Seen a bit on Jo Cox’s sister today. She’s definitely not diehard Labour and has only just joined. However, the consensus seems to be that she does a lot of good work in the community and is an all round good egg.

So in the end, I think she would be a good MP for Batley and Spen and I wish her well.
