    • Thanks for your detailed response.   I just pray that they don’t give me a ban as I am a courier. Do you know how the courts consider whether to give the recommended points or a ban? Thank you 
    • Not sure of the provenance of this, but if only partially true is worrying Its up to an individual to weigh the facts for themselves.   https://healthandmoneynews.wordpress.com/2020/12/02/head-of-pfizer-research-covid-vaccine-is-female-sterilization/amp/?__twitter_impression=true   Here is link to the information sheet for Healthcare professionals doing the vaccinations.   Again no personal views either way, its up to individuals to decide what is true and what is fake.   Published 2 December 2020 Last updated 3 December 2020 — see all updates From: Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency   Information for Healthcare Professionals on Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine
    • The National Police Chiefs' Council's policy on speeding enforcement suggest that speeds of 35mph or above in a 20mph area should be dealt with by way of court action. All forces in England & Wales usually follow those guidelines so it is more than likely your matter will be dealt with under the "Singe Justice Procedure."   Magistrates' guidelines for that speed suggest a fine of a week's net income (reduced by a third if you plead guilty) together with either a ban of up to 28 days or 4 to 6 points. Points are far more likely. That band of seriousness covers 31 to 40mph so you can expect six points or, if you're lucky, five. You will also pay £85 prosecution costs and a "Victim Surcharge" of 10% of the fine (minimum £34).   The police have six months from the date of the offence to bring proceedings and in many areas take all of that so you may not hear anything until next May. The first notification you get will be a "Singe Justice Procedure Notice". You cannot attend a Single Justice hearing but you will not have to attend court unless either you particularly want to or the Single Justice is considering disqualification (Single Justices will not disqualify you without giving you an opportunity to attend a court hearing). In either of those circumstances the matter will be adjourned and listed for a normal court hearing.

    • Well I have no idea whats actually happening regarding the Brexit negotiations, but I cant see any substantial meal deal occurring as Johnson is planning on not only bringing back the highly reported international agreement and law breaking legislation back next week - but also adding some more agreement trashing legislation (Taxation (Post Transition Period) Bill)   https://uk.reuters.com/article/uk-britain-eu-legislation/britain-to-press-ahead-with-brexit-treaty-breaking-laws-next-week-idUKKBN28D1KB https://commonslibrary.parliament.uk/research-briefings/cdp-2020-0164/ https://uk.practicallaw.thomsonreuters.com/w-004-6057?contextData=(sc.Default)&transitionType=Default&firstPage=true     Its 'interesting that many companies are planning on cutting/pausing supplies to NI, not only because they have no idea whatsoever what the UK mechanisms are going to be, but most are (of course) international companies and so unlike the Johnson Government, will be loath to break international agreements.   https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2020/dec/03/four-in-10-uk-food-firms-to-cut-supplies-to-northern-ireland-poll-brexit     Of course, theres also the 'other side of the world' trading group - but as well as being thousands of miles away, they also have rules and wont take kindly to agreement breakers   https://www.cfr.org/backgrounder/what-trans-pacific-partnership-tpp   https://www.aseanbriefing.com/news/new-rcep-free-trade-agreement-rules-of-origin-to-boost-finishing-of-products-investment-into-cambodia-laos-myanmar/   and who gains most from that 'thousands of miles away agreement? - as we already know with the UK-Japan deal .. https://www.economist.com/finance-and-economics/2020/11/21/who-gains-from-rcep-asias-new-trade-pact

"an earlier phase of the OptiGene testing – which was supposed to involve all 250,000 residents of Salford, Greater Manchester, being tested regularly – was quietly scaled back after it struggled to even test 250 Salfordians a day. After the pilot was paused, the government said it would now be smaller in scale and focused on “high-risk environments and groups”."

 

So smaller in scale than the failed first test which failed to achieve its target of just 250 tests a day  ..

 

Where are they re-implementing it? A local happy shopper?

"When he announced the mass testing plan in September, Johnson conceded it was hugely ambitious but predicted the system could be “widespread” by spring"

 

so testing 250,000 people at the rate of 250 a day for a wider roll-out in 6 months or so was 'ambitious' eh?

Well I suppose it clearly was - as it failed miserably.

.. and £500 million pounds was it? ... to fail to collect and test just 250 spit samples a day? .. from a single geographic location

 

and the guardian has a nice big graphic center piece in the article promoting handcocks utter cobblers 300,000 tests a day ...

while questioning nothing?

thought I was watching the BBC

It's not going well at Serco/Sitel Test and Trace. They're using untrained staff to do clinical assessments of people who have tested positive because they don't have enough staff. They seem to have learned nothing since the first wave.

So anecdote, my wife and daughter's Covid test posted Monday 9 am, Results texted 10pm Wednesday night, Wife negative, Daughter is positive.

We immediately emailed the school despite it being half term here, as her symptoms appeared last Thursday. Head Teacher called us  Public Health Wiltshire informed, email sent out telling her year to self isolate.

 

All pretty efficient, while patient zero is on the phone to all her mates giggling about her loss of smell. 

 

As an aside covid for a 14 year old, was a mild fever for a few hours, and a sore throat. Then back to normal minus a sense of smell. She's now probably been infectious for 8 days, nobody else has had symptoms ' yet'

I must say it's all been pretty good and joined together. They even sent a test for my wife as she has medication that she must stop if Covid positive. , which she fortunately wasn't.

 

This disease is incredibly dangerous because of it's unpredictability. We ate at the same table, 3 days in a row, sat together as a family, I drove my daughter around for 3 hours in the day before she had symptoms, and was handing me chewing gums from the pack, at the time she was most infectious, yet 9 days later none of us or her close contacts have displayed any symptoms, (apart from my slightly suspicious sore throat).

 

Then at the other extreme there re super spreader events leading to numerous hospitalisations.  It makes no sense whatsoever!

Its strange that one London,  the tinfoil hatters are doubting the accuracy of the tests, but it may be that individual susceptibility is a variable feast, as in one in a family gets something bad, the rest suffer little at all.  Just hope your missus stays well.

I was thinking that earlier, BN. Most of us need a kettle and at least a microwave and some gas or electric rings that work. And I don't know many ladies who could do without a hairdryer.

 

Are people meant to order online?

It's what most of us did before.  If a shop is allowed to open then limiting what we can purchase off the shelves is nothing to do with control of the virus.  They can hardly claim it's about public health that you aren't allowed the paint to redecorate room and keep yourself occupied but you can buy enough alcohol to have a party.

Kay Burley's as thick as they come. How she got a job as a news presenter, or in fact any job at all, I'll never quite understand.
