Well most people die before 90 regardless. That is why the average age of people dying from covid is higher than the average lifetime.

Tell that to the 100000 that have already died many of them way under 90 and all the young people who are in hospital telling everybody this is for REAL it is killing us as well.

If you look here the number of young people that die with covid is minute: https://coronavirus.data.gov.uk/details/deaths?areaType=nation&areaName=England. It is mainly the over 90's that die and at any age you are far more likely to die from something else than covid.

So what you are saying, as long as you can have your six months holiday, It does not matter how the UK is made up.

It sounds like your appraisal of Covid, let all the old buggers die, they are going to die anyway, tell that to the 50000 that are catching it & the 1500 dying every day at the moment & a lot of them are young people, who thought they could not catch it.

With your logic London should be Independent it contributes most of the wealth in the UK, supporting uneconomical areas like Yorkshire, if you did make Yorkshire Independent, you could then go back to using the groat as currency, I wonder how long Independence would last

Well Scotland would rejoin the EU, if they will have them, so there would be a another hard border and they wouldn't be able to use the pound, so they would be on Euros but they would be able to use their holiday homes in Tenerife for six month instead of three.

Yorkshire might as well be independent as it is about the same population as Scotland and a lot more than Wales.

I agree there has been no unity at all from the dissolved parts of the UK. I strongly feel now that they should all be allowed the referendums they a desire, and should they vote to leave good luck to them. Also I would decrease the support to them over a ten year period, so they can gradually adjust to being independent and a self financing sovereign state. Basically give them there wish, the same that we had with Brexit. Then there cannot be any argument!! And you know what, we would all get on surprisingly well.  Please bring it on!

I totally agree it is called the United Kingdom, I know Wales & Scotland want independence but along with NorthanIsland we have 4 small Countries all doing their own thing.

Each one of them has made decisions only to change their minds 24 hours later, if it was not so deadly it would be so laughable.

It is about time the British Parliament made single rules that every Country followed, if they don't no more money, see how Independence would go then ? but if they want to go, let them go.

The buck would then stop totally with the Conservatives,  who instead of certain leaders trying to gain brownie points who should be ashamed of themselves, we may get on top of this pandemic, but Boris needs to stop dithering and be a leader

Unhappy I can assure a labour government in Wales have done no better care homes are only now being risk assessed  for  vaccination to begin, GP practices are being given 50 page training documents to complete along side all other duties staff individually then have 15 page personal training to complete my local surgery has said this will take at least 3 weeks to complete only then can they start vaccinating.
 A family took a relative over 80 to a vaccination centre he has dementia and is blind because he could not fill out the forms they would not vaccinate him it took a 20 minute phone call with his surgery to sort this they refused to allow his relative to fill in his forms in all over an hour to complete beauracracy is alive and well in Wales.
 It is also in the news that vaccines are being thrown away even though staff in surgeries administering them but are not clinical ie receptionists etc could have had it but this was blocked by the local health board as they are not in the current target group.
 The Welsh goverment seem to be loving the control when this pandemic is over they will again become largely irrelevant I personally will be happy to see the end of dithering Mark Drakeford unfortunately we probably won't ever get rid of the labour government due to the devastation the torys caused in our industry and mines I can but hope.
