    People react like that because they are scared and you remind them of their fear. They have lied to themselves about it being "over" - which it demonstrably is not - and you are making the point they are self deluding. All you need do now is say something about climate change and you will be shot by angry Mail readers for being woke.

    I can't understand people getting upset by somebody wearing a mask!
    The mask is to protect them not the wearer.
    Some people just like to be upset and angry.

    The Daily Mail has a circulation of c1million. So you are right - and there are quite a lot of them.

    I can understand it. It's not about anything as sensible or logical as who is protecting who from what. It's about beliefs and someone wearing a mask is offending another's beliefs just like it was a religion.

    And then there are idiots like Neil Oliver fuelling all this bollocks in the media, poncing round like they are leading the charge for freedom.

    People who sit in their cars while parked with the engine running. And then complain about the price of fuel!

    Sorry to hear that. We had fabulous viz on the Persier and Elk wrecks today. Probably 15 metres to go with the 15c water temp.

    Or, perhaps they feel that they were lied to by 'the man' (other genders be they real or self identified are may obviously be 'the man' should they feel represented by the generic term for person(s) in power) and humans have now to live with covid the same as with influenza (or some variation of that theme) and 2 years were wasted and lives adversely affected in many other ways.

    Climate change? The only answer is a huge reduction in the numbers of humans on the planet (IMO). I thought you might have been in favour of letting covid 'run free'.

    Still churning out the same old stuff? Can't make a post without insulting some people/group?

    It now costs too much to keep the aircon running might be an alternative POV?
