With absence of evidence for masks, esp in schools, Prof Heneghan urges 'be mindful of children's wellbeing': "Do we want to keep them in a perpetual state of anxiety as they try to go about their daily business?...I think we're sending the wrong message to the next generation"
Face masks return to public transport and shops tomorrow but Prof Carl Heneghan doubts how effective they really are. "Germany and Austria mandated medical grade masks. They're now bringing in complete restrictions to deal with the rise in cases." @JuliaHB1 | @carlheneghan

This looks cosy. Are you mandating they wear masks too @educationgovuk @nadhimzahawi Anything else would be intolerable given you have just - TONIGHT - required this of children.

We’ve seen some disturbing things since we launched 18 months ago, but this might be No. 1. This is a despicable way to treat children and it’s time to start calling it what it is ~ Child abuse.

The decision by Austria to people who decide not to have a Covid vaccination in prison takes tyranny to a new level. The move must, of course, be condemned by everyone, irrespective of what side of the Covid/vaccination policy debate you have been on up to now. However …

We've had many reports of children with sore hands from constant washing and sanitising. How many have developed germaphobia? Such an unfair burden on their little shoulders.
Friend’s son 12 yrs, can’t stop washing/sanitising 🙌 which are red hot sore, won’t open doors or touch surfaces, anxious about everything….started completely out of the blue since Sept…how many have developed germophobia and OCD because of the harmful messaging and testing?

No. We need to catch the coughs and colds because we all have an immunity debt front the last 2 winters. We NEED to get ill from minor illnesses so that they stay minor illnesses.
"We need to really have a rethink about making people wear masks again" GP Dr Rosemary Leonard tells #BBCBreakfast reintroducing face coverings could reduce a spike in coughs and colds coming into winter, not just Covid. bbc.in/3EGy784

Seven persistent myths about Covid and lockdowns in the UK / England. I thought I would put one thread together on what I think are 7 myths that continue to be propagated - mainly by those who, although well-intentioned, always assume that more restrictions are the answer.

Thank you @instofideas for an incredible weekend of debates @ #BattleFest - what a joy to be in a crowd again, talking, arguing, socialising. It felt so normal. Well done to the entire team behind it!

But is this feminism? Remember when LFB brought out the big guns in their fight against “sexist” Fireman Sam and his outdated language? I'll be discussing this and whether feminism is in crisis at #BattleFest on Sunday with @bindelj @BelindadeLucy @InayaFolarin & @Ella_M_Whelan
Great to have another supporter in our #FirefightingSexism campaign. Welcome Barbie! She's coming to the rescue, helping girls & boys to imagine everything they can become by joining the Brigade, in our new gold kit too.
