Backpedaling already. McDonald's and Pret 'not included' in new table service rules https://www.bbc.com/news/business-54268918 Rubbish. Blindingly obvious fast food restaurants wouldn't be included in the rules. There's plenty to take a pop at with this government without trying to make this a thing

How can grandparents now be exempt from any local lock-downs for childcare reasons when they had to be much stronger quarantined when it all kicked off and was advised we couldn't use grandparents for childcare??

Re: COVID-19: Your Thoughts and it's effects on you.

Back to virus - some interesting points from this morning's speech by Whitty and Vallance, of which of course the govt will cherry pick the bits that suit their agenda and ignore those that don't. Interested to know what you think the government's agenda is? And which government you are referring to?

Re PMBJ's speech yesterday, Why is it inevitable that the UK is entering a second wave because of the other countries in Europe? haven't we effectively closed our borders with those high infection states?

Hutchinson Ports. But you have to be an idiot in order to meet the criteria. Or to take a seat on the board apparently.

There's $357m difference between Williams and Mercedes and yet after 309km of racing on Sunday they were only 32sec further up the road.

It is ridiculous and I can't help thinking that, unfortunately, there is politicking going on with the devolved nations wanting to be seen to do something different to London but I do think that the English rules are the way to go at the moment

This is the balancing act the governments are now faced with. Limiting social contact whilst still trying to maintain a working economy. Hence why pubs and restaurants stay open but we can't all go and see Granny

Quarantine like lockdown is only as good as the public wish to make it as demonstrated in the anecdotal examples given above.

Surely it discriminates against workers who chose to cancel their foreign holiday or holidayed in the UK instead? I haven’t had my cup of tea yet, but I’m not sure how it would be in any way discriminatory? For one thing, it’s those people’s choice to holiday in the U.K., and for another, I’d need ...
