    Wuhan Killer Sneeze (thanks Tea)

    The vaccine is a disaster OR it's not.

    Wuhan Killer Sneeze (thanks Tea)

    What you're (MB I mean) saying is either the companies know of a huge problem OR they are just acting normally. Which I guess is true as far as it goes but hardly revelatory.

    Wuhan Killer Sneeze (thanks Tea)

    I admit, in fact what I'm saying myself, is that capitalism is inherently problematic. What I take issue with is you suddenly clutching your pearls at the shocking revelation that pharmaceutical companies attempt to make money. There is no "or" about it, they are legally required to do that as...

    As do all other industries. The problem is not Big Pharma per se but a system which makes it a legal requirement to prioritise making the shareholders rich above being good at doing whatever it is the company is supposed to do.

    Nothing to say about the actual point? ie the first stated aim of all PLCs is to maximise shareholder value... if AstraZeneca do that too - as they must - it doesn't make them any more sinister than any other company in capitalism... presumably you have a problem with that system?

    Wuhan Killer Sneeze (thanks Tea)

    As that is literally the first stated aim of every single publicly listed company you must be living in a constant state of shivering terror. And judging by this thread you are... such a cuck.

    Harry Kane went to visit his former teammate Eriksen in hospital today in a nice gesture. "He's moving around a bit and able to string together a few basic sentences now so he's definitely making progress" said Eriksen.

    That's what I told Tiago it should be but he wasn't having it for some reason.

    Dunno much about them to be honest but I do have the Fuck Shit Up seven which is cool.

    Euro 2020

    I was wondering the same thing... I suppose if you can celebrate when Scotland or Wales or Ireland win then you triple your chances of victory (admittedly to a total of about 1 percent). Celebrating England defeats should bring plenty of joy to make up for that though I guess.

    There is the surgical analysis that Tea was asking for.

    Wuhan Killer Sneeze (thanks Tea)

    Isn't being scared of the virus and what it will do, who it will harm etc, i.e a general concern for others rather than one's own individual freedom and money, pretty much the same as having principles rather than directly opposed to it?

    Ollie said that the right were generally antimasklockdown and you share something complaining about how the left are all in favour to.... back him up?

    East Side Radio have this thing where each month they pick one of their regular djs and ask them to write about something for a news letter. You only have a very limited number of words and topics are getting more and more restricted but anyway Lizatron wrote about K Records and her favourite...

    Choon of the Day

    It gets better towards the end of summer I find, I guess months of hot temp help. Also there are a couple where it's a bit better, maybe if we go across the river to Caparica or Setubal - but floating smack fantasy will be rudely interrupted up by splashes of freezing water spoiling the idyll...

    Keir Starmer

    Gotta admit that without particularly liking him, I certainly thought Starmer would be polling better than he is. I expected more of a bounce from just being "not Corbyn" regardless of his actual policies.

    Choon of the Day

    That image sounds very enticing.... need to get a floating sunbed and the rest and go to the beach this week. Problem is the water is always so cold here weirdly enough, it might be almost 30 degrees but the sea near Lisbon is colder than Southend.
