Laurence Fox Reclaim Party

Not sure what to make of this.

Laurence Fox has started a new political party. It’s called the Reclaim Party.

He got into the news a while back for his appearance on Question Time. I didn’t see it because I don’t have a TV licence.

I’m not sure what the fuss was all about. But now it’s emerged that he’s starting a new political party.

I remembered mentioning him a few months back, sitting drinking a beer and smoking a cigarette outside a pub.

I wonder if his new party will repeal the UK smoking ban? None of the other parties will.

If they do, I’ll vote for them. It’s the only thing that really matters to me.

But the new party doesn’t have a manifesto. So I don’t know what to make of it.

I guess we’ll find out soon enough.

    I’ve expressed my interest in the party by signing up to their email. Laurence Fox enjoys Golden Virginia roll ups !

    Laurence Fox has been threatened with legal action over his plans to set up a political party called Reclaim, after a charity that champions working-class teenagers said it already used the name and would face “substantial damage” from any association.

    Beyond Air® Presents Data Showing Anti-Coronavirus Activity of Nitric Oxide at the CHEST Annual Meeting 2020
    Oct 19 2020

    “GARDEN CITY, N.Y., Oct. 19, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Beyond Air, Inc. (NASDAQ: XAIR), a clinical-stage medical device and biopharmaceutical company focused on developing inhaled nitric oxide (NO) for the treatment of patients with respiratory conditions, including serious lung infections and pulmonary hypertension, and gaseous NO (gNO) for the treatment of solid tumors and tumor metastases, today announced the presentation of data from its COVID-19 program at the CHEST Annual Meeting 2020, which is being held virtually from October 18th to 21st.

    Data presented showed the following:

    A single 2-hour exposure of OC43 human coronavirus to 250 ppm NO in vitro prior to infection of host cells resulted in a significant reduction in viral infectivity (1.4-log or 96% reduction) and a significant improvement in host cell viability (> 75%) over 7 days
    Exposure of OC43 human coronavirus infected cells to 150-250 ppm NO intermittent exposure regimens (4 one-hour exposures over 7 hours) resulted in as much as a 46% increase in host cell viability
    Exposure of OC43 human coronavirus infected cells to a 150 ppm NO intermittent exposure regimen (4 one-hour exposures over 7 hours per day for two days) resulted in complete inhibition of infectivity”

    But still even the scientists who do see that smokers are less likely to get Covid keep thinking it must be the nicotine, it just goes to show how little tobacco has really been studied over the years.
