Your country should’ve gone into full lock down in March , closed your boarders in March and followed New Zealands example. Boris’s handling of the pandemic is equal to that of that orange idiot in America.

BRITS ARE TAKING GOOD NHS AND MILD SYMPTOMS OF COVID FOR GRANTED! HOW ON HEARTH SUCH A RICH COUNTRY WITH EVERYTHING TO REDUCE THE RISK OF THIS VIRUS IS RECORDING SO MANY DEATHS AND COUNTLESS INFECTIONS?😲

Boris can’t take responsibility for the lives lost. Many have themselves to blame for not follow the COVID-19 rules. Masks, Social distancing. Some turned there noses up at the advice. Sorry but the government are not to blame for it all. Even now the lock down rules are being broken by selfish people who flaunt the rules. I will back the government 100 % coz there are decent ones out there who are trying to follow the guide lines to beat this pandemic if others can’t be bothered to help then they deserve to be refused treatment or vaccine. The guide lines are there. Either follow them or this shit will go on for years.

Dont bother lighting up candles. Wasting oxygen and adding pollution. You need to fear this virus. Try to protect your lives by making sure the virus dont reach you thru your mouth n eyes. Wear a mask and dont touch your face. Social distance n stay away from crowds n air conditioned places. Regain our freedom when we survive thru this corona. Wish all luck n wisdom

It's sad. But I've noticed one thing, the protections of UK doctors and hospital workers are too simple compare with Chinese frontline hospital staff. This might be sth. that gov. should consider: more supplies and enforce the guideline of strong suits for all front-line doctors, nurses and other related social workers. 'cause Co-Vir can be attached to Skins.

What does everyone expect when the gutter press come up with silly questions and the public just ignore the rules. To many people in the UK bothered about Holidays and going to the pub rather than saving lives..

THE VIRUS IS TAKING OUR FREEDOM, NOT THE POLITICIANS. THEREFORE BORIS IN ORDER TO KEEP HIS POPULARITY IS RESPONDING TO SO MANY GROUPS MOANING ABOUT HELPS SUCH AS RESTAURANTS AND PUBS CRYING FOR PUBLIC TO EAT OUT AND HELP OUT. 🤦 THERE IS THE BILL OF SUCH A SUMMER TIME SO DIFFICULT TO CONTROL THE CROWDS. NEXT SUMMER WILL BE THE SAME AND A 3rd WAVE OF THE PANDEMIC VERY LIKELY TO COME. THE MARRY GO ROUND. 🤷🎠

Pandemic has not only brought upon the world corrupted system in many other aspects into reckoning, but it has also led us into crypto revolution. People are participating and using crypto silently as part of the social movement in changing the status quo, and exiting the current system to avoid the outrageous and endless money-printing in which, we know the government by stealth has stolen purchasing power indirectly from everyone over the years, not to mention they colluded with the private conglomerates to de-platform people from the social media(s) who are outspoken and have different ideologies from them. At this turbulent time, people are looking for a safe heaven, one of it is the Bitcoin. Bitcoin is being bought at the moment to hedge against the inflation, global uncertainties, loss of jobs and unwise monetary policies taken by the governments across the world while also provide a counter check and balance to the existing centralized nature of private entities who enrich themselves and enslave others.

Protests and dissents that we witnessed across the world are the result of the outrageous fiscal and monetary policies implemented by the irresponsible government. The current system was designed to enrich the very few person sitting on the top. The current system that has been running for over decades was financially re-engineered to enrich the elites that had created many unwanted social-economical issues.

Bitcoin and Decentralized Smart Contract platform like Cardano are the solution to fix all the trust issues, takes the power from the state and put it back in the hand of the people – in money, freedom of speech, voting and level of playing field aspects.

Apart from buying Bitcoin, another way to preserve the value of your money and participate in the crypto revolution as a way to protest silently against government' irresponsibility is also to look at longer horizon and invest in

– 'decentralized' smart contract platform that would not be regarded as 'security' that may have legal implications ( For eample XRP and EOS would have legal implication due to its centralization nature )

– a decentralized/#Defi platform that has its utility token to support the network and run the decentralized applications.

1) Bitcoin is a decentralized community money but it was not designed to run decentralized application and Ethereum doesn't have limited supply – with that Ethereum' appreciation may not be great in long run.

2) Cardano has limited supply and halving like Bitcoin and that it can be used to write better and more secured dApps / Defi app in its smart contract platform than Ethereum. Adding to that, Cardano is more decentralized than Ethereum and Bitcoin combined. You can almost say, Cardano = Bitcoin + Ethereum. You can watch it here why is that – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hA1CLEGvZgM

As utility token is not speculative in nature, hence its price can be more sustainable in long run with big potential upside due to the various decentralization applications that will be built and run on the top of the blockchain.

When Defi and decentralization applications take off and have mass adoption in the coming years, Cardano is no longer an option but it's a security choice one has to make. We know any dapps that run on top of a smart platform would involve risk of dollar and cents, anyone who is technical sensible person would not want to build a decentralized application on Ethereum that its platform has been experimented on the go and still is. The gas fee(s) in Ethereum are costing people ridiculously an arm and leg now. You can also sense Ethereum' technical foundational layer is rather shaky and not to mention the number of security incidents in the past, that the Ethereum platform itself has opened up several vulnerabilities – dapps were hacked as result of its flaw, and you wouldn't know what comes out next and fall apart again.

Cardano is about changing the world for millions of people, that can also mean bringing wealth to millions as well. The more people Cardano positively impacts, the more it will be used. Cardano's use case will be different for all of us.

The speech recently from Cardano founder'- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TFf2cRfJ-d0

Invest in yourself, your time on Cardano and be part of the journey in changing the world for the betterment of humanity, join us in the Cardano channel in https://www.reddit.com/r/cardano/

Reasons why Cardano (ADA) is a better cryptocurrency lifeform to be hodl in long-term 2 – 10 years:-

1. IOHK is going to expand its commercial adoption in Africa continents with 50 over countries.

2. Most decentralized and secure, Blockchain to date once D=0 in March.

3. Fast, robust, built to scale, on-chain democracy through voting, open to all.

4. The best network stack, meta-data implementation in the industry. Extended-EUTXO, fantastic UI/user experience through fullnode/lightnode wallets, cold staking through your own wallets.

5. Hard Fork Combinator, seamless upgrades/hardforks.

6. Built on solid foundations by some of the best people in the industry, who have been working/planning this for over half a decade.

7. Decentralization incentives, stable roi without required hardware or electricity, no lockup.

8. Cross chain and cross code communication for interoperability with little to no cons.

9. NATIVE Assets + ERC20 Bridge converter. Actually done right, nothing like simple “wrapped assets”.

10. Native-Assets capable of benefiting from the EUTXO, integration with projects treated as first class citizens, capable of using all of the tools built on ADA without custom integration/smart-contracts.

11. Fantastic well thought out strategic partnerships, with the goal of providing decentralized finance to those who need it the most. (Africa – Ethiopia deal).

12. Verifiable KEVM Solidity contracts. (It will do everything Ethereum does better, literally, more secure smart-contracts through K, without miners/fees, fast transactions.)

13. Mantis framework, smart-contract deployment without code.

14. Supply-chain tracking (Beef-chain).

15. For verifiable products, tracking and authenticity validation on-chain.

16. It’s own smart-contract language next to the KEVM.

17. Plutus smart-contract language, in development for years by the same people who created “Haskel” used by Entrepreneurs and Banking systems over the world, as well as Java and Go.

18. Plutus cross language support, multiple smart contract languages, anything can be added as a supported language thanks to the Mantis Framework. IELE think: (Java, lua, rust, C++, C# ..)

19. Built to run Lightning/Hydra from the base layers/foundation.

20. Sonic, snarks in the near future as well.

21. Decentralized voting through the built in wallets, that provides rewards as an incentive to participate and use your voting rights.

22. Community voting for funding projects from the built in treasury, as incentives for developers to pitch their idea to the community before receiving funding. (Already happening, over 100 million dollars in the Cardano Treasury and growing every Epoch.)

23. Decentralized re-useable identity, provided through use of verifable entities.

24. 153000 User delegates as of this post (PoS Miners).

25. 1450+ Nodes/Validators/Pools.

26. 69.4% Supply delegated.

27. Incredibly strong and passionate community, mature, focused on providing the best/the most secure tech in a user-friendly way, that is both fair and provides long term sustainability.

28. Even if it takes years to finalize, but Rome wasn’t built in a day, and this project was built to last.

29. I could add a lot more but I’m about to order some 🍣 paid for with my delegation rewards.

30. Mining without Hardware/Electricity is quite nice, love PoS.

Sadly listened. Burning candles only increases cost. That money can be given to the needy. Rather, think about what you did for the eternal peace of their body and soul.

Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples: “The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. So you must be careful to do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach. They tie up heavy, cumbersome loads and put them on other people’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them.
Everything they do is done for people to see: They make their phylacteries wide and the tassels on their garments long; they love the place of honor at banquets and the most important seats in the synagogues; they love to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces and to be called ‘Rabbi’ by others.
“But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have one Teacher, and you are all brothers. And do not call anyone on earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and he is in heaven. Nor are you to be called instructors, for you have one Instructor, the Messiah. The greatest among you will be your servant. For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted".

You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything, in Heaven above or in the Earth beneath, or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents up to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.
"If my people who are called by my name, humble themselves and pray, AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS, I will hear from Heaven, will forgive their sins, and will heal their land."

And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

This, then, is how you should pray:

Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from the evil one.

For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.

"Matthew 5-7 NIV Bible Gateway", we can use google search.
These are the teachings,
The Righteousness of our Lord Jesus Christ our God.
REPENT, and start doing what is right.
If you abide my teachings, you are really my disciples; then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.

A time is coming and has now come, that the true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and Truth. God is Spirit, so his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and Truth; they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.

In the New Heaven and New Earth,
only Righteousness dwells.
May the Spirit of our Lord Jesus Christ our God be with you all.

Just in case you are more afraid of the vaccine than you are of the virus. Pita bread is 60p for 12. Makes a delicious snack if you cut it open toast it lightly in the pan spread generously with pate chop and dice a clove or two of garlic and for the anti viral properties garlic has it could keep a virus away from you

This country has more than 400,000 homeless people. As sad as every death is, the world is not reacting to this virus in any rational way. Why? How many more people died in 2020 than 2019 or 2018? How many more children were born last year compared to those years? We need perspective. There's a million ways I could die, sitting here waiting for it should not be one.

Don't understand why Western countries don't, at very least, look at what non western countries are doing to manage this pandemic. In Asia and Africa countries have experienced pandemics as such used their experiences in this pandemic.

RIP to all those who lost their lives. Condolences to their families.

Stay home to stay safe.

No you don't. An honorable man would have resigned by now, along with his government for criminal incompetence and negligence. These 100,000 people are on his head, and history will not remember him kindly.

Now Chris Witty said that 10,000 deaths would be a good outcome in April 2019. Now over 100,000 deaths.So what has gone wrong. To many chocolate bars and a reliant on fast food. This situation has been brewing for over 30 years. We are paying the price for total incomsidence.

I have a friend in Kent / UK who is happy that his mother got her Covid-19 vaccine in the middle of January, but she will not have her second sting until April, so it is 3 months between each sting, so I think they die like flies over there! The manufacturer says you have to have 2 vaccine after 21-28 days after the firste ! Why do UK do That ?
