Flights banned from South America and Portugal

Are other European countries not doing the same thing? Macron was quick out of the blocks to halt travel from Britain before Christmas...I think if people want to get anywhere badly enough they'll find a way, but as you say, it's gotta help and is the right thing to do.

Very easily done these days...the only thing you can be kinda sure of is it's not likely to be on a terrestrial channel due to the paucity of good drama on those imo. Having said that I am enjoying the period feel of The Serpent at the minute, and I surprised myself by getting a nice, warm,feel good glow from the new version of All Creatures Great And Small on C5 which we binged last week.

Mrs. Maisel is actually on Prime but it's still a great recommendation and a good reason to get a free month trial of Prime if you can. You can then binge Mrs.M AND The Americans, another fabulous show.

On Netflix, I agree with a number of the suggestions so far, and would add Godless, Atypical and The Kominskey Method to the list.

I would like Starmer to say now what he would over the next two months if he were PM faced with the current situation. Lay out his plan and contingencies he'd put in place if cases don't fall e.g if by January 23rd this hasn't happened then I'd do this etc. Then we can all see whether his ideas may have been better or worse than what happens.

So, kids without laptops are now classed as vulnerable and can go to school
at 15:49 7 Jan 2021

The way these definitions of vulnerable and keyworkers are being abused is totally negating the whole point of closing the schools...it's not protecting kids, parents or teachers. Either tighten up the definitions or schools will start making their own rules to ensure sensible limited numbers, or unions will call them all out.

Trump and the way he has poisoned normal Republicans

No matter what you think of our voting system or what has gone on here during the pandemic, our government has absolutely not been worse for democracy than what Trump has instigated over the last few months culminating in last night.

Good one this if you try it with the accent....

Inspector Clouseau and his wife are in the garden when a butterfly flies past.

Madame C. says " Did you know, Jacques, that butterflies only live for a week?"

Clouseau replies " My dear, I think you'll find that's a myth"

to which Madame C. answers "No, it's definitely a butterfly"

Vaccine process was just quietly changed by the Government
at 11:35 30 Dec 2020

The government is clearly trying to drive most bang for the buck from the Oxford vaccine. One dose seems to prevent the need for hospitalisation in most cases but does not provide full immunity (although it might for some), the second dose takes people up to nearer proper immunity. So the multiple objectives of reducing hospital pressure, maintaining schooling and opening up the economy faster is best achieved by the one dose strategy. It should allow easing of restrictions on the hospitality industry, at least back to Tier 2 levels and as we get to Spring probably allow all pubs to serve drinks outdoors at the very least. Some will continue to get ill, but not to the extent that there is the need to lockdown and prevent any contact.

Vaccine process was just quietly changed by the Government
at 09:18 30 Dec 2020

The Pfizer vaccine should now just be used for NHS staff and over 70s. The Oxford vaccine should be given first to teachers to try and keep schools going (maybe lecturers too to try and get unis and colleges started again), then to medically vulnerable people, then to the 50-70 year old group as they are able to contribute most out of the priority groupings to getting the economy going again. Anyone who doesn't want their first allocated dose of the Oxford vaccine because they think it's not effective enough can pass and let one of the many who do want it have it instead...

Government being advised that schools should be closed in January
at 18:01 29 Dec 2020

Exactly this...if we vaccinate the majority of the age groups most likely to be hospitalised/die I.e. over 50s, then it doesn't matter quite so much if it spreads within kids as they aren't adversely affected by it and they'll only pass it on to people who generally won't require hospitalisation.

Teachers of course should be vaccinated as a priority, but that doesn't solve the issue of transmission from kids to family to community. It should not be a binary option of all schools open or closed, let the school leaders decide how thy can best provide the safest schooling and don't pillory or threaten them if their conclusion doesn't suit you...

Any Mandalorian fans out there?
at 09:42 27 Dec 2020

It's pretty good...I thought it got a bit samey after a while and the storm troopers are worse shots than our forwards, often just standing around waiting to be gunned down. But the last 3 episodes of series 2 redeemed it and the final episode was great, if slightly predictable.

Which figures would you like us to look at?

Number of businesses closing?
Unemployment figures?
Cancer deaths?

Urgent operation cancellation figures?

Or just the figures which you've deemed matter..

She was sitting at a table eating and drinking, stood up and turned round to talk or people at another distanced table briefly forgetting to put her mask up. Her only mistake was standing up...if she'd just turned ound in her seat it's no story. It's no story anyway...

Sprouts
at 07:39 23 Dec 2020

Exactly this...I roast the sprouts in a baking tray with the carrots, parsnips and cauli florets, all tossed in a little olive oil and a pinch of seasoning. In a separate small tray I roast the frozen peas with a splash of olive oil and white wine tossed with one dried dill. No vegetable is sweeter than when roasted..

Making you Tier 1 was as good as slapping a great big bullseye on your backside...especially as they didn't put any travel restrictions in place.
