So we are expected to risk our health and life by taking a vaccine

no... by NOT having the vaccine you're risking your own life plus risking others.

You have a massively higher chance of dying from the virus than dying from taking the vaccine, so by not having the vaccine you ARE risking your health and life.

That's fine. Risk your health and life if you want, but risking other people's life based on your crackpot conspiracy theory is just plain selfish, it's unacceptable and should never be allowed.

How does that work? Where did you get the passport? Do they just check it when you're entering a restaurant etc? What is on the passport? I'm quite interested.

Can have it on paper or digitally. I got mine in UK. My phone has a QR code which lasts for 1 month once generated. I can generate a new one when that expires (or before).

When entering restaurant, theatre, bar, etc etc., They quickly scan the QR which gives them the green light and quick check against ID, then you're in.

Works all over UK/Europe (and US/Canada I'm told). Quick and easy, and keeps the anti-vaxxers away.

The onus is on you to prove that your neighbor is a threat.

No, no. Don't have to prove anything. Vaccine passports work well to keep unvaccinated threats to the public out of bars, restaurants, sports events, transport, etc.

I'm travelling throughout Europe right now and vaccine passports are in place everywhere. It works great!

Skipping the vaccine is a choice every individual is entitled to.

No approval, authorization or permission from anybody else is required.

Your physical body belongs to you and you only.

Yes correct. Those people are perfectly free to make this choice.

However they will pose a danger to others so they should be banned from all forms of public life and any mixing with normal people.

Does not mean the plans for the IR will not go ahead. The casino was physically a small part of that anyway. Yamanaka will be guided by his Yokohama masters that installed him as Mayor and will bend in whatever direction they tell him to when the time is right.

We finally have the culprit! I'm blaming God. That's the root cause and has been responsible to millions (if not billions) of deaths on Earth.

Agreed 100% , but which god? (small g [sic])

The world is plagued by nutters that believe that their sky wizard is better than the next person's sky wizard. Just as deluded as the anti-vax morons.

BTW... only one thing to do with a plague... Eradicate it.

I think the AI can work better than crew in most circumstances but when a master has an agony of the moment scenario, I don't see how AI can deal with it. The situation involves thousands of random choices based on circumstances that change by the second. Impossible to program such a thing.

Hong Kong was always a port of call for the British Navy and Chinese navy ships have visited the UK in better times.

Not just a port of call, it was British and had a naval base and shore establishment in HK. "Honky Fid" was always a brilliant run ashore.

Just imagine if the Chinese navy was holding exercises in the English channel?

China can hold naval exercises as it wants as long as it doesn't break international conventions and impede on another countries territorial waters uninvited.

The defences consist of machine guns used to shoot down incoming missiles. They might intercept a small % of anti-ship missiles but not against China or Russia which have satellite guided anti-ship missiles which fly up then come down right on top of ships

It's difficult to get the scum off of shoes. However, when you want nice shiny shoes, you have to do whatever you have to do to get rid of the Yaks.

It's a nice thought Michael. But who fills the void? Sometimes it's better to control the devil you know because it is naive to think that the underbelly of society will ever go away.

Unfortunately one has to keep polishing one's shoes because the scum will always return.

Firstly the Kaicho of a fisherman's union is hardly a ordinary citizen. He's just Yakuza by another name. Bunch of pirates!

Secondly on getting rid of Yakuza. They tried that in Roppongi and I'm pleased to report that it's now a delightful place, clean and respectable (and you never get hassled/accosted every 10 meters on the street) now that the Nigerian mob has taken over.

Admittedly When AZ was released being the first they were learning on the job but, since then with further research and trials they've been able to tweak any problem and are now as good if not better than the other vaccines out there.

What a complete load of horse manure. The AZ vaccine has been fine from the beginning.

This article was about Rangers fans but the comments have swiftly become how wonderful Celtic fans are in comparison.

This of course is nonsense as Celtic fans in the main are just as moronic as Rangers fans; and the sectarian divide between the two is something that neither understand, they're all just lemmings.

Celtic & Rangers: same s**t, different package.

I see so many comments like “When they get out, they’ll get a fat paycheck from Ghosn”. My question is

Why?

Why on earth do you all think Ghosn is gonna give them a red cent? He paid em $1.3 million for the job. Deal’s done. Why would he throw more money at them, when he was clearly willing to let them twist in the wind for his sake?

“You did the job and got paid. You’re on your own.”

Yes exactly correct. They're getting zilch.

Um, Ghosn was yet to be tried for the allegations made, therefore it’s a bit rich to label him a criminal at his stage. If anything he’s an accused person.

That’s not hard to grasp right?

Bizarre reasoning.

Once again a trial, a conviction or even a an accusation is not a requirement to be a criminal.

@AustPaul

Two things,

Ghosn is yet to be convicted so the charge of ‘helping a criminal’ seems odd.

You do not need to be convicted to be a criminal. Why is this concept so difficult for people to grasp?

If you drive me to Lawson so I can rob the place, then you are helping a criminal. I'm not convicted either at the time you help me, but I am a criminal.

4 ( +7 / -3 )

Posted in: American father, son get prison terms for helping Ghosn escape See in context

But they didn't help a criminal, because Ghosn hadn't been convicted of anything. They helped a criminal defendant. Big difference.

A defendant can still be a criminal.

A criminal is a criminal regardless whether they have been convicted or not.

If convicted they are a "convicted criminal" and if not convicted or not even caught or known about then they are just a plain old "criminal".

If Ghosn is escaping the country without the legal authority to do so (no matter what our varied opinions of his innocence or guilt may be) I would imagine that it would be classed as criminal activity.
