Vaccine Passport Exemptions

In this episode, we discuss the medical exemptions you can self declare in order to attend venues or events that insist on (or by law are mandated to use) the UK Covid Pass.

Is there a window of opportunity now where we can avoid both testing and vaccines in order to go about our daily lives?

Does this mean you’ll need the certification from a government doctor?

If you can self identify as a different gender, can you self identify as immune to SARS-CoV-2?

And in a rare moment of contrition, Andrew has an apology to make…

How To Stop Wearing A Mask

This week begins with Andrew offering some advice on the easiest places to forgo masks.

We then talk about PCR tests as Nic has just had to have one in order to have a minor medical procedure. Are these tests as accurate as the government is stating? And why don’t they quarantine testers as soon as they test someone positive?

After that, Nic gives us some insight into his recent private hospital experience. How much better is it than the NHS?

Finally, a couple of months ago, Andrew posited that it could be Gamers that will save us. This week, Nic suggests it might be Lawyers…

Have No Morals But Your Own

Andrew is calling for a General Election, but do we really want Keith in charge?

Is there a better model of healthcare for the Covid age? Are neo-liberals just itching to tame but not eliminate state intervention?

And have people outsourced their morals to a higher power – the state.

CDC Infectious Tests, Rushed UK Law and Stagnant NHS

As the CDC accidentally infect those they are testing for SARS-CoV-2, the UK Government amends its initial regulations governing the lockdown, but as well as closing some loopholes, opens some new ones.

We discuss whether this kind of law making can ever work, and whether centralised health provision by the state produces anything other than problems.

Will the NHS ever introduce modern methods of healing such as the use of Oxygen, as used in the private sector?

Was the rush to build new ventilators really necessary now that some clever medical thinking is improving how sufferers breathe?

Will either of us actually take a government sanctioned vaccine when one becomes available, or should we just take our chances?

And is there a danger that while stuck in our homes, we might get stuck in other, more awkward places?

Our NHS – Operation Human Shield

In another Lockdown edition, we talk about Boris’s message to the public on leaving the hospital, and how he’s positioning himself as not just the ultimate centrist, but the ultimate NHS Tory.

Just how much of GDP will be taken up by the NHS in the future?

Will the government’s handling of the pandemic mean that Labour are a shoe in at the next election? Or are any new labour leaders just filling a vacancy and nothing more.

Can Operation: Human Shield last long enough to allow some new ventilators to be approved by the UK’s cumbersome regulatory regime?

The Problems With The Centre Ground

Is centrism really the answer to any political question?

Is the centre ground really the safe area furthest from the two dominant authoritarian ideologies of the 20th century, or merely a cherry picked, statist mix of the two; dressed up to sound reasonable and measured?

From critiquing Rory Stewart’s centrist “bow” to whether or not people have abandoned ideologies, we discuss if political centrism is really that benign and perhaps the modern, accepted forms of statism can be countered without being branded an extremist.
