  1. Booked. Could have had tomorrow am, if it was not for work (and the small issue of 20-odd miles). No matter the combination & location (within 50 or so miles), 1st July was the date for the 2nd jab.
  2. Indeed. It is not a source I admit, but it is the best I can do with a quick search- 190,000 seats on flights to Dubai for the month - in January. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9200655/Coronavirus-UK-Britons-Dubai-race-reach-home-todays-1pm-deadline.html I would be interested to learn how many flights there are to / from the UK in a "normal" day.
  3. Nice! I look forward to this thread - It looks like a decent van - a solid start.
  4. I did not think it worked well the last time, other than to enrich "selected companies / individuals" so to speak. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/mar/10/no-evidence-22bn-test-and-trace-scheme-cut-covid-rates-in-england-say-mps As in, to be blunt, my understanding of it was that it cost us all a lot of money, made a small fortune for a small select group, and did very little to prevent Covid.
  5. Paywall article I am afraid, so cannot comment on exactly what he said (becasue I cannot see it, and the tweet does not define it). All I can do is look at the numbers. Is he refering to "Excess Winter Mortality" do you think? Is this number on top of the five-year average, or part of it? I could do with more detail - not a helpful tweet (to reference a paywall source). https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/birthsdeathsandmarriages/deaths/bulletins/excesswintermortalityinenglandandwales/2018to2019provisionaland2017to2018final#main-points
  6. BBC remote broadcast van set up at the base of the Tor this morning..
  7. +1 Radiohead (who are they? aoplogies as I had to have a look on wiki.)
  8. Indeed. Although, clarity would be helpful. "You would of thought the Germans knew all about being humble to history" - why?
  9. Fair enough. I have seen people block you today, people complain about the content of your posts. I sought to engage you, to allow you to demonstrate the content of your comments. I will not be blocking you myself, but I am dissapointed. You post a lot. A lot of content. A lot with a statement, meaning. It is a shame that you will not stand by it, and it ... diminishes ... your contribution. I will still read your contribution, but ... with less interaction. As I say, a shame.
  10. Apologies OG. Sometimes, I feel something needs calling out. The problem here is that I want Barry to "own" his comment. It was (I feel) intentionally vague, a "Daily Mail" style comment designed to annoy. I get that. Well, “own it” then. The real problem I have here is cultural. I *think* I understand his trolling, but I would like him to spell it out to me so I can be sure I understand it. As seen though, he will not “own” his comment, and will not explain it. Disappointing.
  11. I have had this comment before - "it's the war" (paraphrase). What does “WW2/British Empire/War Crimes” and the specific focus on Germany being humble about history, have to do with the current events (or more specifically, the comment you were replying to – the German Easter lockdown)? I am afraid you are not being clear here – apologies as you are confusing me. “You would have thought the Germans knew all about being humble to history …” I have given you the courtesy of quoting the entire back-history of this comment, and my questions rel
  12. So much "I would do differently, if I knew it was coming". How many people will plan for the next one, even though the last one was 100 (ish) years ago? I know I will be putting a fiver aside for the bet on the next one, despite the odds being so poor!
  13. Hi Barry, I am sorry to keep asking for clarity, but I still do not understand your comment. Why would the Germans know all about being humble to history? I do not understand your reply about how “us Brits and Germans” want to be more mindful than the Swedes. I do not want to upset you, but it would be helpful if you could be clearer. Could I also clarify the “more planes about to fall out of the sky” comment? What is this in reference to?
