    On-topic, because it's about the idea of experimentation, lol:

    "I'm not taking part in this vaccine experiment"

    You are. You're the control group.
    Currently around 10% in the UK
    ....and 80% in ICU


    https://twitter.com/Holbornlolz/status/1421527009549856772?s=20

    This is getting crazy. Some anti-vaxers say the state wants to get rid of them so that there is no unvaxed control group to compare the vaxed with, and now anti-anti-vaxers are telling anti-vaxers that they've got news for them and in fact they ARE the control group. Few on either side understand where the other side is coming from.

    Staying off topic, anyone on the left should be crying out for the preservation of the Castle exactly as is, because it is the most damning anti-capitalist essay of all time.

    An alternative view on the Craig Murray case:

    https://bellacaledonia.org.uk/2021/07/31/on-forms-of-journalism/

    That really is a must read.

    Fourth the idea is bounced around and around that other journalists also ‘leaked’ the names of witnesses but went unpunished. Murray and others consistently point to Dani Garavelli as one of these citing a Panelbase poll. What’s less often noted is that Craig Murray wrote and paid for the question to be added to the poll. In other cases journalists or other individuals may have inadvertently released information and when warned then instantly apologised and deleted such material. Not so the Ambassador who when warned pressed on. There is quite a difference.
    Peatworrier got a lot of pelters for this tweet but I think it’s spot on. Murray’s actually got what he wanted, attention and Assangesque martyrdom for the cause, so a non custodial sentence might have been a better choice.

    https://twitter.com/peatworrier/status/1420845010900197379?s=21
    I read Craig Murray's pieces on the trial. They did not allow me to identify any of the complainers. Why not? Because I did not have the other parts of the jigsaw or other information which would allow me to determine the significance of what he reported. This, to me, is the fundamental problem with jigsaw identification. If it is to be determined by the Court with the benefit of hindsight and with a lot of other information that is not even in the public domain how do you anticipate that you may be offending? The answer is that you are extremely cautious and ambiguities, anomalies or just plain lies of witnesses in such cases are simply not reported because of the chilling effect of a potential jigsaw identification.

    The allegation in this case is that a number of women who were connected to the SNP in various ways along with some civil servants very close to the current First Minister got together and conspired to produce sufficient evidence that Salmond was prosecuted in the High Court. I must emphasise that I have no idea whether such an allegation is true or not but it is a very serious allegation. Where it is demonstrated that people claim to have been sexually molested at a dinner which there is no record of them even being at certain issues arise. Have they simply made a mistake as to the date or the occasion (the most likely explanation)? Have they made it up (possible, but much less common)? Have they contrived with others to create a case that damns the person alleged to be responsible (far fetched but not impossible)?

    The problem is that Murray was convinced that the last was at least a factor in this trial. He tried to show that but it is impossible to do without giving some context to the allegation. It is that context that forms the basis of the jigsaw identification.

    I remain appalled that the Supreme Court has declined to look at this. There were obvious flaws in the Court's judgment (for example, he was found guilty of something not explicitly in the petition). It is a considerable extension of the s4 with uncertain boundaries and in my view it is incompatible with Article 10 of ECHR. Definitive guidance from the Supreme Court would have been helpful in clarifying the rules and the boundaries. They may have upheld the conviction, possibly on more limited grounds. But they really should have considered it.
    Very worrying. Can the Supreme Court really have made such elementary errors? How does one go about righting such a wrong?

    Many thanks David. I deeply appreciate an expert’s assessment.

    One of the reasons I’m not a big admirer about the Whig ‘separation of powers’ is I want ultimately to have democratic control of laws and lawmakers.

    The Supreme Court took that away, by replacing Parliament - admittedly the unelected part of it - as the highest legal authority.

    And there is no effective remedy.

    Indeed. Look at the state of this:

    “A consultative referendum will be argued it is lawful for Betfair’s rules. Because if a referendum is seen as a wildcat referendum I can see that will impact turnout and the result if Unionist voters boycott the referendum which will impact the supplementary betting markets.”

    If people have wandered off-topic immediately, it’s probably because the topic is not instantly obvious

    On the F1:

    Someone on the radio said that Hamilton was fairly scr*wed the moment that situation arose. Because Mercedes have the first pit box, he would have come in and changed tyres only to have everyone else (who were close together) stream in to avoid an unsafe release. The delay would have been significant (although probably better than last).

    The controls groups are America's lower percentage vaccination states.

    From what I can see, the pattern of delta (rising cases, deaths not so much) looks pretty much the same to America's high percentage vaxx states.

    Its almost as if the authorities are desperate for every state to go high vaxx to prevent awkward questions getting asked.

    Talking of population growth (as we were), here’s an impressive example of experts getting predictions utterly wrong. This is the UN’s central projection for the UK population back in 1998


    ‘Scenario I, which is the medium variant of the 1998 United Nations projections, assumes a total of 1.2 million net migrants between 1995 and 2050. From 1995 to 2025, 40,000 persons would enter Britain annually and none after 2025. The overall population of the United Kingdom would increase from 58.3 million in 1995 to 59.9 million in 2025 and thereafter decline to 56.6 million in 2050’

    As of July 2021 the UK population is 68,200,000

    This is getting crazy. Some anti-vaxers say the state wants to get rid of them so that there is no unvaxed control group to compare the vaxed with, and now anti-anti-vaxers are telling anti-vaxers that they've got news for them and in fact they ARE the control group. Few on either side understand where the other side is coming from.
    Also, if the state was going to exterminate one group, it wouldn’t be the compliant group who did what they were told.
    It makes you wonder why the Democrat administration of America is so anxious to get all those Trump republicans vaxxed.

    To stop them getting ill and dying?

    Does anyone know when the foot tunnel at St Pancras / Kings Cross opened, going to the area known as Granary Square near the canal? It's probably been there for years and I didn't notice.

    2014 according to this
    https://www.kingscross.co.uk/press/2014/06/20/press-release-2014-06-10

    I used to work there and never noticed it tbh.

    COVID-19 hospitalizations in Florida have reached the highest level since July 2020. At the current rate it will reach the all-time high within 4 days

    Florida is not really one of the really low vaxx states though. There are plenty of lower vaxx ones.

    The controls groups are America's lower percentage vaccination states.

    From what I can see, the pattern of delta (rising cases, deaths not so much) looks pretty much the same to America's high percentage vaxx states.

    Its almost as if the authorities are desperate for every state to go high vaxx to prevent awkward questions getting asked.

    Yes. Nearly. It isn't blinded, which is often less important than people think it is, and doesn't matter much here. I don't know why so much heavy weather is being made of the very simple point that the unvacced are unintentionally furnishing the best possible evidence for the case against them, and dying as a side effect.

    A bit. But when your effects are big enough, it doesn't matter very much. You wouldn't have lost much sleep in the 1940s over whether all those miraculous penicillin recoveries were just because the patients and their doctors thought they were more likely to recover.

    Yet

    Coronavirus infections, hospitalizations and deaths have risen across the country, with the Delta variant driving the surge in areas with low vaccination rates. Nearly all patients hospitalized with COVID-19 are unvaccinated, with the vaccines continuing to provide strong protection against severe illness.

    Yes, I believe so. The hospitalisation and death rates are not rising evenly though. In some places, something is reducing the ratios between cases, hospitalisation and death....

    De Santis is a fan of vaccination and the Florida vaccination rates are not particularly low.

    I guess I can see the bitterness. Many haven't forgiven De Santis for destroying the cheished argument that lockdowns are useful and necessary.

    I guess the Telegraph report that 1 in four hospitalisations for covid are at least questionable on that basis must also be hard to take.

    Its always difficult when things that are conventional wisdom and articles of faith are challenged.

    Currently around 10% in the UK
    ....and 80% in ICU

    This is getting crazy. Some anti-vaxers say the state wants to get rid of them so that there is no unvaxed control group to compare the vaxed with, and now anti-anti-vaxers are telling anti-vaxers that they've got news for them and in fact they ARE the control group. Few on either side understand where the other side is coming from.
    Also, if the state was going to exterminate one group, it wouldn’t be the compliant group who did what they were told.
    It makes you wonder why the Democrat administration of America is so anxious to get all those Trump republicans vaxxed.

    To stop them getting ill and dying?
    LOL
    Some people care about their fellow human beings. You’re not one of them.
    The notion that Democrats 'care' about the health of Trumpist Republicans is one of the more interesting delusions I have read on here.

    Well, the Trumpists don't care about their own health (or, indeed, that of others), so somebody ought to!

    COVID-19 hospitalizations in Florida have reached the highest level since July 2020. At the current rate it will reach the all-time high within 4 days

    Case rises in Florida are caused by the wrong kind of reality. Hence they are not applicable.
    Delta cases are rising pretty much everywhere in the US, right?

    Yes, I believe so. The hospitalisation and death rates are not rising evenly though. In some places, something is reducing the ratios between cases, hospitalisation and death....

    Presumably Hot Broth and Intravenous Jif.....
    I don't doubt the vaccinations are working. I am not sure they are everything they are claimed to be, however.

    They may not believe in natural selection, but it seems to believe in them?

    I don't really care about other people, so much as I find piles of dead bodies in the street really, really untidy. This is why I support a welfare state. It reduces my need to put a hanky over my nose when having a morning coffee outside an otherwise excellent cafe.

    Similarly, I don't want to anti-vexers to die. Partly because I don't want to run out of fools to take the piss out of, partly because I really, really hate undertakers. And want them to all go out of business.

    Bottas given a five place grid penalty.

    Rather drastic.

    That’s consecutive races Mercedes have been penalised for collisions.
