Did mean ‘secession’?  ;)

Agree with all that, but it has occurred to me, amidst the storm of Internet protest, that Pfizer only tested one dosing regime and it’s quite possible, even likely, that it isn’t optimal. It’s even possible that the actual regime used is better than that tested and approved.

I’m being a bit mischievous, but people lock into stuff as though it’s sacrosanct.

I did some work on projected mortality for Q1 and 2021 on Monday and Tuesday. Nothing particularly sophisticated, but pragmatic enough for our purposes. We agreed an answer that was below my view, but I’m already beginning to think I should have held out a bit harder.
