    The average salary in the UK is £35,423. MPs earn £79,468 and constantly accuse each other of being "out of touch with ordinary people". What if we tied the salary of MPs to rise and fall with the average salary? That would give MPs an incentive to make life better for people living on £35k a year and give them an incentive to increase average earnings across the country. Being an MP has no set hours, no required qualifications and, as we have seen since COVID, no requirement for a second home in London. If we can find talented junior doctors who are willing to earn £28,000 a year, surely we can find talented MPs who are willing to do the job for £35,500. Just a thought

    No the government is out of control. Everything's done on a whim and not voted on by parliament, nothing but a tin pot dictatorship. Putting the needs of the few before the many is selfish. They are just on a powertrip they will keep taking away rights and freedoms until we say enough is enough.

    In repeated lockdowns the threat of social(everyone) starvation increases food production reduces or ceaes food may be toxic, prepared food may spoil in storage. I learned lockdowns decades ago in public health research, it can go nasty quick

    Government banned businesses from being able to do business.

    Threat of fines and arrests for plebians being outdoors and travelling.

    Allowing thousands of illegal immigrants to enter the country and tried to keep it quiet.

    Then masks for food, travel, healthcare, welfare, jobs and to do business.

    Plans for all British subjects and those from overseas to be tracked and traced.

    Next (and has already began), the app and test required to enter shops, travel, receive healthcare and welfare, to do business and keep jobs, followed by the vaccine.

    More broadly there is some risk of Global Conflict here at this point as economies tumble ,look at Britain. The Nukes may fly if we don't o-operate as a human race. Just be ready for some other country to act in desperation.

    Its so clear that if we continue in this fashion there will be no NHS.
    The fit and healthy are what fuels our society. Therfore providing the care for the sick, vulnerable and elderly. Protect the vulnerable and let the healthy create there own immunity. Further protecting the vulnrable over time. This is nature!

    End To Lockdowns, Over six thousand scientists and doctors have signed a petition against coronavirus lockdown measures, It declares that social distancing and mask mandates are causing ‘damaging physical and mental health impacts.’ urging that those not in the at risk category should be able to get on with their lives as normal, and that lockdown rules in both the US and UK are causing ‘irreparable damage’.Those who have signed include professors from the world’s leading universities. Doctors Call For COVID Herd Immunity, Those who have signed include professors from the world’s leading universities. Oxford University professor Dr Sunetra Gupta was one of the authors of the open letter that was sent with the petition, along with Harvard University’s Dr Martin Kulldorff and Stanford’s Dr Jay Bhattacharya.
    The petition, dubbed the Great Barrington Declaration after the town in Massachusetts where it was written, has been signed by close to 73,000 members of the public at time of writing, as well as over 4,700 medical and public health scientists and around 3,200 medical practitioners.
    “Those who are not vulnerable should immediately be allowed to resume life as normal,” it notes, adding “Keeping these [lockdown] measures in place until a vaccine is available will cause irreparable damage, with the underprivileged disproportionately harmed.”
    “Current lockdown policies are producing devastating effects on short and long-term public health,” the declaration also declares. Continue Reading
