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

Also how can you have a poll with 116%?

You can read this as 76% don't want to be in lockdown over Xmas.

It's all down to how you spin the facts.

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

You'll never be able to stop families from seeing each other at Christmas - you just wont. Its the main holiday season of the year and for some families the only time to see everyone and I think the government realise this by saying about relaxing rules for the xmas period, they simply wont be able ...

Re: F1 ( and other motorsports ) 2020

Agreed Derek. Today was done on skill not car performance, It is easy to say its the car not the driver as the reason for his wins. But the truth is as Derek says the car helps but still has to be driven. And he has done it without the dodgy tactics Schumacher and others have done. And he's done it...

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

The UK will suffer from Tier disease - as those who are in Tier 3 will travel to neighboring Tier 2 regions for bars etc and therefore raise that area to Tier 3. So all you will hear over the coming weeks is more areas going to Tier 3 - I wouldn't be surprised if my area Hertfordshire goes to Tier 3...

Proposed New Luton Airport arrival routes

Hi, Not sure if this is the right area to post (mods please move if not) but with the new proposed NATS routes into Luton flying over the villages surrounding Shuttleworth (Dunton, Potton etc) will this affect airshows going forward?? https://www.nats.aero/news/arrival-routes-into-london-luton-airpo...

It doesn't matter who takes on the role after BoJo - like all other politicians they will only be in it for their own benefit, do deals to suit themselves and own interests and carry on screwing the general public.

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

Another reason why i think these Tier's wont work is, what is stop people from these high risk areas traveling to neighboring areas not in high tier risk. Plus the fact that the these new areas start at 0001 Saturday means people (irresponsible ones) will go out for a big knees up before restriction...

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

A lot of people don't understand the logic with some of these measures for example for an area in high tier, families cant mix indoors yet can go to the pub as normal albeit until 10pm and mix - would've thought its safer to mix at a home with no strangers?? And i think its because of these ambiguit...

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

Shutting the pubs/restaurants earlier will make no difference at all other than a bad one where they'll be more people leaving at closing time and heading to public transport, whereas if open til the early hours there is a staggered going home of people.

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

Problem there is the police dishing out fines.

I know a few people who have reported Covid failures (1 "event" saw several people report it) and the police are not bothered and don't show up.
