Covid-19: 10-year jail term for travel lies defended

 Costs too much to keep non-dangerous people in jail. Just take their passports off them for 10 years and require them to  report to a Covid Office once a week for that time. How will all the private airports that the super rich use  be monitored ?

Reports this morning that passengers coming in from listed countries will have to quarantine in a specialist quarantine hotel.

That is after spending “up to 8 hours” stood in immigration lines with people who are coming in from none listed countries who then wander off out of the airport.

You couldn’t make up the levels of incompetence... and yet we are told by Boris that he has done everything he could!

12 months too late and then poorly execute.

Took my other half to have her vaccine on Friday. She has hers due to being on the most vulnerable list, so ill have to wait a lot longer for mine I think. I found it more emotional than I thought. Probably due to 12 months of anxiety, hopefully seeing an end to it coming, but also quite proud. The constant stream of older people and vulnerable people, like a military operation in the best sense, the nhs at its best. Her own doctor coming to meet her to chat it over before hand, and it also ended up being her mums friend from round the corner where we live giving her the jab that due to her situation will probably be life saving. I don’t think I could love our nhs any more than I do right now. 
She was also told her wait for the second jab would be within 5 weeks.

I dont disagree if that is the case.  However, if you are going to be critic, you have to offer some balance and credit when its due.

The vaccine rollout has been first class.  I have taken a few folk to get it and the efficiency has been amazing and far better than I ever thought they could organise.  So, hats off to Boris and all those involved, we really have shown the world that when it come to logistical issues, the UK still tops the list.

Also, in this case Boris showed decisiveness in actually ordering, every vaccine that might work.  Excellent.

Agreed. I always said that the autopsy comes at the very end. So far they have got some things wrong (the delays, the lining of friends pockets) and some things right (the vaccine and the furlough being what comes to mind). Ive probably been more sympathetic to the government for someone with a deep dislike for the Tory party, partly because at the start we were into the unknown and hindsight makes everything easier for those that didn’t have to make the decisions at the time, but Ive also followed closely what happened in America where a government purposely hindered the fight against the virus for political gain, and even weaponised it at times.
I’ll also add something I missed out of my last post rather than making another. Every two weeks my wife gets a call from the council checking up on how she is doing. We are fine and have a good support system if we need anything, but without fail they ring and check she’s ok. Not everything a politician you didn’t vote for does is bad, even if they aren’t on your ‘team’. Not acknowledging it doesn’t mean your side ‘won’. On the other hand, criticism of a government is vital also. It’s necessary. I’m rambling now...

Notice it’s statutory services (Council and NHS) that have delivered. They tried giving as much money as possible to their mates who haven’t delivered and now it’s public services that are doing so. Not sure how much credit goes to Boris for that. Though I will concede the logistics around procurement have been good with the vaccine but to what extent does that reflect well on the government... not sure but like you, my starting point is not liking them

Nothing wrong with a ramble now and again especially when you agree with the content.

Latest figures show that a total of 15,062,189 people have received their first dose of the covid vaccine and 537,715 people have had two doses.Well done to all concerned.

Theres  a long way to go despite a brilliant start, but the middle group is enormous lets hope they have the same willingness as the older generation to get jabbed, brilliant start and shows what can be done when everyone pulls together  take up will get slower as we go down the list and the groups that dont care or dont believe for religious reasons are eligble

What will be in Boris's announcement tomorrow. I think schools open 8th March, 3 weeks after that will be golf and leisure facilities then 3 weeks later non essential shops then pubs somewhere down the line.  Hearing that fans will be back at football in summer and we may host the whole of the euros too. Light at the end of the tunnel.

Is this the website to which you refer?

Coronavirus update

To help stop the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), most hospitals have stopped or significantly limited visits.

Check the hospital's website to find out what their advice is. You can search for hospital details if you're not sure what they are.

If you do visit someone in hospital, wear something that covers you nose and mouth.

Ok but the King Edward does allow visitors, so Charlie hasn’t done anything wrong in visiting his Father.

You suggested visiting was not allowed by posting a link that says it is allowed.

Does that suggest as a remainer you don't have understand or be inteligent?

 

significantly limited visits.
