Interesting how this thread has taken over from the presidential thread for alternative viewpoints but what I love the most is how those who believe in 1 particular conspiracy theory don't find it ironic in the slightest that they believe in other conspiracy theories. :D
I'm still waiting for the 'Perseverance landed in a studio' conspiracy theory - it's the most obvious one. :)

Good luck to anyone waiting to get the jab - get it as soon as you can :)
Mind me asking how old you are Tuco?

I only ask because I got a call from my mothers GP 3 weeks asking if she wanted to be put on the list for a jab, she's 82.

Haven't heard anything back yet, but we're obviously slower rolling out the jab here in Ireland than in the UK.

My older brother's in his fifties and he's been offered an appointment, in London. They're moving pretty quick now.

...early fifties (and my mate is 47 next week!) I really wasn't expecting the text last Saturday but was pleased to receive it - I assumed there was some spare capacity they were trying to fill, but it seems they're simply getting on with the tier 5-9's all in one go having 'completed' tiers 1-4.

The UK government seem to be getting their act together regarding the rollout at least

Agree. BJ's responsible for all the cockups but we'll give the UK government credit where due. :D
