    People coming in from China, with the same variants, is hardly a major risk. This is a political move.

    The biggest risk is that, with so many people in China being positive, a new, more deadly variant could emerge. And, as we know, unless we adopt a New Zealand, complete lockdown, approach, any new variant will soon find its way in, regardless of any restrictions on flights from China.

    Of course, a new, more transmissible, less deadly variant could also emerge. We might not want to keep that one out. ;)

    Some of these text messages are pretty much confirming what we all knew, and why parties were happening nightly in No10.

    I'm not sure how Hancock can dare show his face after things like this.

    And still people are taking the booster jab :eek2::eek2:
    As you say it proves what "some" of us knew all along
    Maybe some day we will find out what all those poor soles were vaccinated with
    Hancock, Johnson and cronies should stand for crimes against humanity

    Isn't it talking about releasing details to the public rather than releasing a new variant?

    It's talking about frightening the public, and his advisor confirming that would be the best way to force a behaviour change.

    Whilst all been fully aware what was going on in No10 behind closed doors.

    Nearly 7 million Covid deaths worldwide.
    It’s not all about Johnson and Hancock.

    For us it is about Johnson and Hancock. They were the ones making the decisions and based on what these messages say, they were more concerned with how something would look rather than what it would achieve.

    When Hancock was seen out and about they were coming up with excuses for him to put out to explain what he was doing was not breaking their own laws.

    Now we have them clearly discussing how to scare people who may have already seen loved ones die due to the government actions earlier to push out stricter rules.

    We also have the cabinet secretary laughing at people being fined being forced to quarantine whilst his staff were taking part in wine time Fridays.

    The people who govern us have been taking the piss out of us whilst not doing what they told us to do, so yes this does matter.

    I'd think that figure is on the low side the likes of Russia, China etc like to make out they haven't suffered the same as the rest of the western world it makes good reading for their citizens, similar to those aggressive Ukrainians who started the war with Russia.

    Sadly the people who govern will always believe that rules don’t apply to them.
    It’s like the bosses in millions of workplaces who implement web content filters to stop employees accessing certain websites whilst they sit in their offices excluded from those rules.
    Many millions of people bent and broke Covid rules so therefore there are many millions of hypocrites.
    It’s over now, get on with life and allow Boris and Hancock’s actions to go over your head.

    The government knew all about "rebranded flu" and they weren't at any health risk by breaking their own rules
    Rest assured they wouldn't have broken them otherwise
    The revelations about Hancock (he's a mere nobody in the grand scheme of things) are the tip of the iceberg so far he's the scapegoat we may never know the whole truth

    Are you talking of deaths BY or WITH Covid
    There's an enormous difference between those two sets of figures

    Boris and Hancock are making millions off the back of their actions.

    The former is making millions from public speaking and costing the taxpayer £250k in order to defend himself from losing his job for lying and the former cherry picked a narrative to sell a book and end up as a reality TV star whilst being paid to be an MP. They simply don't deserve to be ignored. I can only imagine what else Will be drip fed from these messages as clearly they are building to bigger reveals.

    Yes I'm suggesting the likes of the countries mentioned didn't count what were Covid related deaths as Covid to pacify there people, having said that at the time I have a friend who dad was having end of life Palliative care, his cause of death was registered as Covid as was his mothers who he believed died of a heart attack that was also registered as a Covid death.
    I believe at the time he said certainly his mother would have needed an autopsy so it was a quick way of releasing the bodies of his mum and dad.

    Which somewhat blurs the figures of people dying from the "rebranded flu"
    Begs the question why they wanted covid death figures falsely inflated
    As @Edin Nowhere@Edin Nowhere suggests there's more to come out which should not be ignored the likes of Johnson Hancock etc should be held to account for their actions they are publicly elected and should answer to the public
    Deaths from their actions are still occuring

    My original reply was not specifically related to UK deaths but to the world figure Loyalbantam posted.
