If Leicester goes in to local lockdown, surely any team who have plaid them since the restart would also need to lock down meaning football will need to stop again.

Should just end it now and do points per game ending.

The aircraft is in for its scheduled maintenance overhaul which will require a complete strip and repaint, the cost is a total of £900,000 all in, it has already been budgeted for and is inline with planned works.

Re: Boris Force One?

The aircraft was due for a maintenance check and re-paint anyway, who's to say it will not just be vinyl's so that if the aircraft had to go into a hostile situation they can just peel them off.
