Indeed: it's fast approaching the time to 'Unwatch' this mess of a thread.

There's only so much self-absorbed, automatic and tiresome gainsaying a body can take.

The sad thing is that some people with opposing views state their cases well - even if many do not agree with them. It makes for interesting, and sometimes robust, debate.

The trolls are just rather sad intellectual vacuums whose aim in life seems to be to drag others down to their low level.

It's a shame the moderators don't shit-can them.

Bozo called it “World Beating” and numerous on here have defended that, it’s not for me to disprove or find better.

The person who asserts something has to prove it.
er No, if someone tells you something and you say he's wrong then you must prove that you are right, rather like you arresting someone for theft, (other crimes are available) they say they didn't do it, so you must prove that they did. Isn't that how it works?

Rubbish.

You make the point, its down to you to back it up.
 
Absolutely. So, @wetsmonkey claimed that BoJo's Test Track and Trace wasn't "World Beating".

Wets, it's up to you to prove your claim. I await your response with patience.
Errr...

Johnson said it would be world beating.

So its down to Johnson or his fanbois to show it is, as thats the initial statement.

It's normally down to the person making the assertion to provide evidence, which can then be contested.

Wets has stated that, in his opinion, it isn't World Beating (several times). He really ought to give some reasoning about how he came to his opinion if he wishes it to have any credibility. Otherwise, his opinion can be dismissed as just another unsubstantiated moan about someone he doesn't like.
 
For accuracy it is the NHS's Test Track and Trace System.

The one that the media and that Starmer bloke are on about...

And the head of the NHS is nowhere to be seen......
I think you need to be looking at the National Institute for Health Protection on this one.

Basic debating procedure, as learned at school: one side puts forward a viewpoint on a given subject, backed up with reasons for. The other side argues against the proposition, giving their reasons for opposition.
The groundlings listen to both sides, then make up their minds which side they are going to vote for, based on the arguments they have heard.
 
Dead edgy...honest. You're better than that, aren't you?

It's argument by assertion, a logical fallacy.
It's Wets that you should be addressing this to, he is the one who has repeatedly stated that he doesn't believe TT&T to be world beating but doesn't even give a tweet that says the same, let alone any credible argument.

That's because they follow the Moderators or owners politics.

It isn't Wets - you asked me to prove something. Didn't you? This is basics as @Trackpen has posted.

Have the government proved the T&T is world beating? So world beating that they didn't foresee that a return to school and work could lead to a rise in cases?
