    Who did not have COVID took a PCR test. Paid for by the UK taxpayer.

    The tax payer pays for far more unimportant things.

    Johnson's cronies have to keep their nice nest egg going.

    I genuinely can't think of anything less important than diagnosing someone with not having something that in many cases they must already know they don't have.

    Why? No one else is doing it at anywhere near this scale?

    Can you have Covid without showing any symptoms?

    Meanwhile, I still have to pay for my own covid test (x2) and quarantine for ten days when I enter the country, despite being fully vaccinated, and having done a pcr test before departure. Nuts.

    Lots of people making sure they are not in the daily stats of increasing positive cases & deaths - also some need to do one for work & others for the ONS survey do one weekly or monthly. Sure they must be other valid reasons as well.

    Went to work with a bad cold yesterday and asked to go home and book a PCR to be on safe side and to protect people I see. I had already taken 2 x lateral flows that were negative on Sat and yesterday morning. PCR negative also.

    To be fair I think they'd struggle to be able to diagnose whether they were in the death stats.

    Compares quite favourably with giving £37Bn of tax-payers money to Dido Harding to spaff on management consultants and the like for a hardly fit for purpose test track and trace system I'd say....

    No logic whatsoever. I’ve also done a fair bit of traveling in the last couple of years and most of the expense involved is down to the totally random testing regimes. The sooner these parasites stop fleecing us the better.

    I think in some cases it’s to avoid having to attend certain things like work.

    In other cases it’s so people can attend things like school/work etc.

    I actually think there are people that want Covid having been vaccinated etc.

    Nothing surprises me anymore. Only thing that surprises me is people still think the goverment are looking out for you and people still nod and listen to the news. Stopped feeling sorry for them
