  1. Oh yeah appreciate that, they have of course done well and the adjusted population is the only real way to compare. I was just saying that they won’t need mass vaccination sites to be created etc like many others have had to organise - all which will take time.
  2. Yeah but the logistics behind arranging a rollout for less than 100k people is somewhat easier than that of 68m.
  3. Hadn’t even considered that but it’s certainly possible. Her words of ‘I was an advocate of closing them last March’ were very direct and very obvious, so she must have other intentions.
  4. Wonder if Priti’s comments today that the borders should have been closed 10 months ago will be the end of her time in a high level role in the government? On the top of my head I can’t remember a single one of the others admitting mistakes had been made, we’ve seen constant squirming when they’ve been repeatedly asked, and every time up to now they’ve been adamant the governments approach has been correct all along.
  5. Don’t know what your budget is - but this is a great watch at a great price, covers everything you would need and super simple to use, easy to view display etc https://www.gpsoutlet.co.uk/garmin-forerunner-735xt-hr-gps-multisport-watch-black-newly-overhauled.html?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIvtmH_piq7gIVD-rtCh26DwtrEAQYAiABEgKahfD_BwE
  6. I think if we are being realistic, we need to discuss when we will be allowed to have a brew with our parents or a pint with our friends again before even begin thinking of when large scale events can return. Running before you can walk and all that.
  7. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-55721729 Looks like some of them are already on the case - pretty certain that with enough pressure this will be addressed and amended.
  8. Personally I don’t believe it’s the right time for a tweet like that from Kier (although he is of course correct in what he is saying) - the thousands of grieving families don’t need finger pointing right this moment.
  9. Yep, it’s madness. I think we need the UK mega bands and artists (Muse, Coldplay, Arctic Monkeys, Adele, Ed Sheeran etc) to really get behind a movement to have this reviewed as a matter of urgency.
  10. My top tip would be - don’t ‘overlayer’ when running in the rain. Often the temperature is several degrees warmer than usual, and the first instinct is to layer up in the rain. I would suggest just your normal running top and a lightweight water resistant jacket if you have one - oh and shorts .. always shorts!!
  11. Were cases near you relatively row (compared to the national average) and are rising but still well below this figure? The areas that were very high are seeing rather steady declines as you would now expect, but still above the national average in many areas - so guess upward/downward trends need to be taken with that in consideration.
  12. Just seen that our local taxi company are offering over 70s free rides to and from the vaccination centre for the jab. Great gesture, and will be very helpful for a lot of people.
  13. Obviously it’s a real tragedy and the numbers are shockingly high, but it can’t be taken out of context and used as a measure of success just because the UK is unfortunately top of that chart at the moment. I haven’t seen it used as a measure before when we haven’t been on top of this list - so for it to be used now seems very selective.
  14. Yeah, I’d say it’s a mixture as@Chapple12345 said, but I think another key element may be that us Brits seem to be struggling a lot more with lockdowns (actually complying with the rules, and the associated mental health issues this all brings) compared to many counties across Europe - certainly backed up by a couple of friends I have living in Spain and Germany. So if the vaccine is seen as the only real way out of this nightmare, then maybe we are willing to do whatever it takes to get things back to ‘normal’ as soon as possible.

    To be sure though, aren’t you best taking a test now to confirm either way? Hopefully it comes back negative and there is nothing to worry about. But if you are positive (and hopefully have minimal symptoms) then worst case you will be allowed out of isolation 10 days after the positive test result. And you then know for certain you’ll be free from February onwards (assuming cough/temperature had gone, if they even appeared at all). We got our son tested for the same reason and for his nursery - worst case he would test positive after our 10 days isolation ended, and we’d then hav
