    Germany's lockdown has been extended to January 31st. Schools continue to be closed, we're supposed to do remote learning.

    Supposed to?
    Yes, Berlin's moodle for example promptly crashed on Monday after the holidays.

    All feeling sad for being stuck in lockdown for Christmas and New Year... You should actually feel lucky.

    Here in "only country in Europe that has successfully defeated covid-19" (some 3 or 4 times by now) we are expecting further relaxations during following weeks, even though some from the authorities are stating that "slight increase" in daily numbers could happen now after new years and orthodox Christmas.

    There was a lot of big organised private parties for new year, hotels in ski resorts are full... Currently we are down to ~2000 new infections and 40 deaths a day.

    Majority of people are confident official numbers are artificially inflated and won't be taking the vaccines are they are simply to much untested.

    While at same time everyone by now knows dozens of people who were hospitalized and several who died.

    Pro government tabloids and their TV stations are at same time sowing anti vax sentiment while celebrating national triumphs of obtaining couple thousand doses of vaccines.

    Rumor has it that Sweden will not only extend but increase its "lock down" measurements shortly. What ever that means. As we are not see cases falling, rather is exploding upwards, it might actually be that we will get to a real lock down.
    But since this is just going by rumors at this point its hard to tell but given the numbers its not totally unlikely.

    Also a number of politicians, including prime minister and the General Director for The Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency* (basically the agency in charge of handling national threats and disasters like oh I dont know, a fuckin pandemic), who has been telling teh country over and over that this shit is real and you have to follow the new rules got caught not following the rules doing shit that was absolutely not necessary. *sigh*


    *who is such a colossal fucking cunt that I am not sure I would be able to keep myself from slapping his fat obnoxious face if I ever saw him - and that was before he decided to travel to Canary Islands over Xmas & NYE.
    He has fucked up every agency he has been put in charge for and he keeps "getting fired" horizontally, basically just moved to another agency. The conspiracy theory is that he somehow has so much dirt on enough people he is untouchable, there is almost no other explanation left as to why this dog shit of a person is still allowed near any position what so ever.

    Yes. I really dont like that guy. CUUUUNT!

    I would still rather see more effective measures in here. We are doing pretty good compared to the world as a whole but things could be better and not a balancing act on a knives edge still...

    I hear you and agree with you a 100%. That guy is a such an incompetent colossal twat he makes UK Tory members appear modest and competent.

    I love how he has the gall to say that this trip was "neccessary" as he has "abstained" from many many trips during this pandemic. I suppose he was due some luxury as he has sacrificed so much unlike the underpaid nurse that can't afford to make several trips. Clearly poor people sacrifice much less as they can't afford to make those trips in the first place.

    Good lord I hate that man! Seething with hatred I think is the term.

    That would be a mercy tbh
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    Aaaaand all 9th, 10th, 12th, 13th graders are going back to school come Monday. Classes are only supposed to be half sized. That covers half of our student body. I have no idea what they were smoking. Technically all of these (except our 12th graders) are going to graduate this year. However 9th grade diploma is a requirement for the 10th grade one and to be frank not necessary anyway. Other states got rid of that ages ago as the kids can't leave school after 9th grade anymore anyway.

    Fuck this shit.

    I wonder how my school is going to deal with this. We're having a conference tomorrow on that topic.

    Well... lets not start sucking each others dicks just yet. First, he is resigning. He is not being fired. That means he is resigning his current role, not resigning from government/politics/party. And if the quote I saw is correct he is "vaguely" saying he asked to be reassigned (to something else, not removed).
    And since his role is a "tenure" of sorts he actually cant be fired, he will get "another role" inside government and he keeps his salary. Meaning he will sit on his ass and do nothing for the reminder of his term, with full pay and benefits and then be available to get another high profile posting (he is only 59 so while there is a small chance he will retire after this he could technically go on).

    Fuck. That. Fucking. CUNT! And the system that supports this farce!

    Add all the other permafrost regions (Sibiria) to that list, which may host some "funny" surprises for mankind. Not only in terms of pandemics, but also all the climate change impacting chemicals (methane) safely locked away until now.

    One thing the article doesn't mention: the EU has ordered loads of doses of this version on behalf of its members and these are available immediately. Had we not left, we'd already have access.

    To be fair, the EU will need every dosage they can get after the wrong paperwork was filed to get the Oxford/Astrazenica vaccine approved adding a 2 month delay to the bulk of vaccines to use.

    Oh no, you could have had access even after leaving, the EU was kind enough to offer the UK access to it's vaccine buying program but the UK simply didn't respond.
