...that all that booze the Daily Mail hacks drink will react with the vaccine and remove a useless group of t**ts from society!
There's some good news today for those of you concerned that as the impending bird flu pandemic apocalypse sweeps the UK - decimating the population in scenes of horror not witnessed since the last visitation of the Black Death - you might not be able to expend your dying breath expressing your anger that swan-roasting Albanian …
I wonder if the "Pandemic Influenza Management Scheme" is administering Tamiflu based on scientific advise or as part of the on going press feeding frenzy of finding new ways to create eye catching headlines about the non existent threat of a possible influenza pandemic.
I for one will be viewing the chickens at the bottom of my garden with the same suspicion I reserve for the house proud foreigners living in my shed.
.. a flu vaccine under development that could be applied to all flu strains (inc. Bird flu). Seem to remember a BBC report about this in the past couple of weeks.
Good book to read: "Scared to Death" by Christopher Booker (Author), Richard North (Author).
Puts all this Media / Politico self-interested scaremongering into perspective.
Shows the massive amount of money, energy and resources that have been and are being wasted on stupid scares caused by a minority of idiots on very flimsy or inaccurate data (if not complete lies).
Well if the Mails 'journos' believe the sensationalist claptrap that comes from between the white paper sheets, then it must be true.
Good on them for protecting against an relatively unknown threat.
Now all we need is for them to migrate to other countries in response to this country being overrun, but immigrants, paedophiles, murderers, rapists.
But alas they wont, because Diana's grave is here. (Russell Howard paraphrase)
Typikal... all these flu pandemiks comin over here takin our jobs... and our lives.
Vis bird flu is turning vis country into Britain-istan.
I blame scottish NuLabor.
I cant wait to emigrate to Spain... and not learn the lingo or mix wiv the locals! Dis county is going to the dogs!!!!
I really worry about these guys sometimes. They write the most depressing and despairing stories day in, day out. Have you thoughtless swine ever given any thought to how hard their lives must be?
"Well, first of all I wrote about paedos running rampant, then about the collapse of financial stability and I still need to finish the global warming and the "Fruit gives you cancer" stories. Oh, and can you send the cynaide my way once you're finished with it, or shall I retrieve it from your corpse?"
"It would also lead to significant and sustained disruption to our businesses"
kinda like the soon to happen collapse of most of the major world banks, you'll have mass suicide of people who've lost everything, better than any flu pandemic would do. the 21st century virus - Shares.
yeah it ain't funny, go be ill on some other chick(en)
You know how bacteria get resistance to Antibiotics, right? Well viruses can gain resistance to antivirals by the same mechanic. Tamiflu is already useless against several strains of human 'flu, due to unsupervised, unnecessary and badly managed private use of non-prescription Tamiflu in south east Asia, which is where Bird Flu will cross the species divide, if it does it anywhere, so the strain that reaches us will be well used to sticking the vees up at good old Tamiflu, whether it's Daily Fail-provided, or sourced from the stocks the government panic bought a couple of years ago.
Am I the only one who's noticed?
Lester doesn't give a link for the original article. But nothing he quotes from it says anything about BIRD flu.
Whether or not there is a real risk of a HUMAN influenza pandemic right now, I couldn't say. If The Daily Mail think there is, they might well get their people Tamiflu shots.
The NHS routinely offer flu jabs to vulnerable groups every winter, yet I don't recall this triggering a spate of hysteria about bird flu.
So Lewis did mention it. Any way , whichever flu strain it is, I hope is has mutated to the point where it can live happily on the vaccine in the case of the Dreary Mail hacks.The last time I looked at a copy, it seemed to have been written for soap watching, big brother hopeful teens whose only other aspirations in life are to win the lottery and be famous(ly drunk). A sad paper which with a little luck could come to a sad end.
