    In truth, that's quite accurate. Control is something people value especially after losing so much in the last year or so.

    I believe MF had a good psychologist who helped him get over it.

    It's like giving them wrong date and address in a different country

    People generally have quite homogenous friendship groups anyway so typically, if you are rabidly pro-vaccine it's unlikely you have many non-vacc friends. Silly story.
    That's called common sense. Something that doesn't generally work with a 'political student and commentator'.

    More likely they are paying her to take that stance to create tension and outrage to attract viewers.

    I nearly got 'lynched' once in General Studies whilst in 6th form. The teacher asked me to take an anti-abortion stance in a class where I was the only male to make sure there was a debate. Well it was pretty one sided and only calmed down when the teacher came clean. Although I quite liked the attention of a class hormone raging nubile 17 yr old females, and was a lot more pleasant when I imagined all of them naked

    ‘It's controlling, it's psychotic, it's benevolent,’ she replied. ‘It's not caring.'
    One of these words is not like the others! Either Dominique or the Mail doesn't know what "benevolent" means.

    Political student and commentator Dominique Samuels, 22,
    As soon as I saw that I knew which way this was going to go. There was going to be little common sense debate going forward from that.

    I was supposed to go to an outdoor event at a friends this weekend but my 2nd jab hadn't come through. Her husband has no immune system to fight covid so very high risk. I'm coming from the Bolton area and they are in the Kirklees area. I suggested it might not be the best idea this week to give them the option to agree rather than have to 'de-invite' me. They totally agreed and everyone was happy. No banning anti-vaxxers or psychotic behaviour or anything.

    We've also not socialised where possible with my other half's brother through lockdown as they've been very very lax with any rules and we've been the opposite. This was pointed out and no one got upset.

    It's just a decision to minimise risk in the short term for me. No one is being controlled or unfriended. I think Dominique is a bit of a fruit loop and just being a typical young political student and commentator.

    Ask the families of the people who've died from contracting Covid at a family function. If a vaccine is available then all who could get the vaccine should and be proud of the fact they're both more protected and protecting others
