"Ms Quinn had previously said on social media that she did not consent to or accept the fines."

I didn't know it worked like that, I feel so silly.

I think Ms Quinn needs to stop believing what she reads on Facebook.

You have to laugh at these people who will take legal advice from social media and a trusty Google search

Well, I guess we all have these feelings
We can't leave unreconciled
Some of them burned on our ceilings
Some of them learned as a child
The things that we're concealing
Will never let us grow
Time will do it's healing
You've got to let it go

During the early days of Covid, what made me laugh was all the 'doctors/medical experts' recording videos on Youtube and sharing them on Facebook basically trying to poo poo the proper experts.

I presume it is like Googling your medical symptoms - headache or imminent death.

Some of the bbc reporting of the India travel ban:

Quote
Kiran and Saumiya Philip travelled to Kerala in March to get married, but once the wedding was over they realised India's Covid cases were rising rapidly and they started looking for earlier flights back.

"I've been trying to get back to the UK since 12 April but there aren't any tickets available," says Kiran. "You get the odd one now and then, but the cost is upwards of 1,200 to travel from Kochi one way."

Are you allowed to fly places during national lockdown to get married?  Hmmm

The only time the word racism is used is in the title. There might be questions to be asked about the difference in uptake from black people, and I think a few are hinted at (black churches not engaged about promoting vaccines), but ultimately that's a dogshit article designed for outrage and clicks (obvious i know, but it seems reasonable to hammer home)

Yep.

I was reading through it myself wondering where the 'racism' aspect came into it.

More click-baitery from the Beeb. Bloody leftist bias.

It does seem generalised. Everyone who hasn't had the jab will have some reason I guess.

I guess they are implying racism in the past has bred a distrust of the government now. Which is affecting vaccine take-up.

But you know that, and yes it's a bit click baity
