    I doubt this thread will last long, but if we stick to just the malign influence of the media - and ignore the right or wrongs of the politics...
    This is just yet another horribly biased news outlet that has the sole aim of generating cash from a divided society. Outrage news
    The fact that within one page of talking about it - the arguments have started says it all
    Life won't get better until we learn to concentrate on the things that unite us rather than letting the media divide us

    Sorry mate - but you are attempting to link 2 random occurrences to the vaccine. With zero medical evidence. That doesn't deserve anything else but derision
    Come on - covid vaccine responsible for a muscle tear in the calf??

    Oh - they already did

    The nosebleed experience that you describe is almost exactly like what happened to me - spooky in fact. It was horrible, nose just started bleeding for no reason and took ages to stop. Eventually it did but then an hour later I sneezed and it started again but this time wouldn't stop - I was swallowing loads of blood, made to hang around the A&E ward for hours with a tampon up my nose (yes really!). I had to have the blood vessels in my nose cauterised, and it took me several weeks to get over it
    It was in October 2019, over a year before I had the vaccine. Still...makes you think .It has to be linked right?

    Exactly, and even when the Cambridge college that holds his papers attempts to explore his complicated legacy in a balanced and open way - they get shut down by those who cannot bear any critical thinking on the issue 
    Makes it easy to understand why @maxjam is so up in arms about the issue of controlling what gets said in Universities..

    Hmm - watch the 2 minute intro from the Master of the College 
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wermPu-oG5w
    The whole debate is purposefully framed as a balanced debate from the start, and remains that way. The ethnic make up of the panel is irrelevant, and it feels a *little* bit like you've made some ugly assumptions based on a few foreign looking names.
    In fact watch the chair address your exact point at the 8:30 minute mark
    But if you insist then you could say that the opposite side of the debate had its say in the Daily Mail afterwards, in the hundreds of abusive emails that the panel members received afterwards, and ultimately in the cancelling of the working group.
    It's exactly what you advocate for - free speech in Universities to challenge ideas and debate unpopular opinions openly
    But you can't bring yourself to admit it fits, and instead you go straight on the attack about the ethnic make-up of the panel 🙄

    Mine was 2011.  Just started at work for no reason. Within 30 minutes I must have gone through 2 pints . Same A&E and a battery of tests. The shock level is horrific as your brain can compute it if you've been punched or fell etc.  Had a camera down my sinuses to look in my throat about 6 months before and my inclination is they damaged something that went.  Still get the occasional issue now and it's definitely reduced my mental health and increased my anxiety level being out and about.

    I was fortunate enough to go to all of the Euro 96 games.  I would have liked to have gone to see England this time around, but as I'm no longer in the supporters club and with reduced capacity due to covid I guess that wouldn't have been impossible anyway so didn't even try 😕 
    That said, if the stadium is only half full or whatever because of restrictions yet, as with the G7, the rules are being applied differently to VIPs a lot of people including myself are going to feel justifiably upset.  
    Time to get my pitchfork out!

    That's the thing isn't it.
    Churchill's actions played a significant part in stopping the Nazis. But he also said (and signed off) some horrific things, even for the standards of the time.
    But because the Churchill diehards have this perception that anyone who explores the complexities of his character are loony snowflakes who want to piss all over his statue, the debate always gets shut down. Just watch Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain whenever the subject is raised. The anti-snowflake brigade are absolutely petrified of anyone who dares to say anything bad about their hero, even if it's a direct quote from Churchill himself.
    No doubt the more extreme voices of 'the left' have contributed to this, but their voices have been disproportionately amplified by news organisations that know reporting on a ridiculous 'snowflakey' opinion will generate clicks. And that's how this 'culture war' crap started.

    GB news has 100% record of losing Tory seats now.
    Maybe the neglected segment are the socially liberal and centre right on economics.
    The people who worry that the UK becoming internationally isolated because we deliberately break treaties is more important than some 19 year olds removing a picture of the queen in their common room.
    Or woke Marxists as they are usually known as.

    On the subject of cancel culture..
    I see that last year Churchill College Cambridge set up a working group to critically assess Winston Churchill's legacy 
    https://www.chu.cam.ac.uk/news/2021/feb/25/statement-churchill-college-its-programme-churchil/
    But after the second event, under pressure from the right-wing press and Churchill's family, the college have forced the working group to disband and cease any further activity 
     
    But it's only the left who engage in cancel culture remember 🙄

    I think that it's quite refreshing that so many people who were basically Covid-sceptic at the start of the pandemic have been persuaded, by the overwhelming force of logical argument, to change their attitude and accept the reality of the situation.
    Wow! I managed to keep a straight face while I was typing that.
