Does that include all Spanish territory (e.g. also the Balearic and Canary islands), or just the mainland?Anyone returning from Spain will have to go into 14 days quarantine from midnight tonight due to outbreaks in Catalonia and Madrid areas, official announcement tonight apparently.
I’ve had to switch off whenever Jeremy Vine comes on, completely patronising and quite a lot of the time utterly clueless - the number of times he’s been pulled up on air by the experts for stating inaccurate facts is quite shocking. And as for Dull Dan on BBC Breakfast - considering he calls himself a devout Christian he really does seem to relish in the high death counts and unemployment figures.I'm not advocating going back to pre-Covid normality now, but that the situation is not as dire as the media constantly makes out - just heard Jeremy Vine say Leicester has gone back into lockdown indefinitely - if that's the state of the media no wonder people are terrified!
Indeed, apparently the reason the Tory Government refuse to go on the ITV breakfast programme is because they are quite happy to be “grilled” over their policies and actions by a Match Of The Day stand in host!Most, but not all BBC reporters are students of other subjects and journalism is a secondary occupation. e.g., Miss L. Minchin qualified at Law whilst that Walker chap is primarily a sports hack with nothing better to do in the morning.
I agree to an extent, however if done with common sense some of these things are acceptable (the common sense part usually being the problem).I apologise in advance if this post upsets or irritates members. I have seen images on the web and broadcast media of a mass of people swamping coastal and inland resorts. I also witnessed a local family load up their vehicle for what seems to be a jolly to the seaside.
I do not wish to be killjoy neither do I wish to receive a visitor that has indulged in this manner against best advice. To be blunt, it is wilfull endangerment and a criminal office to knowingly place another person at risk of infection. This law has been successfully prosecuted in cases of the transmission of HIV.
People that continue to act as if normal life has resumed and ignore the rest of us citing ' freedoms ' and ' rights ' should think hard about the consequences as winter approaches and hospitals are unable to manage a surge. I speak as a potential patient given my current illness and I admit to being worried.
I underline the point, I do not in any way or form, suggest that any member of F4A is culpable of reckless behaviour. Thank you and be safe.
What a palaver. No thanks. If thats how it has to be I won`t be flying anywhere. Can`t say it bothers me as I find the whole airport experience awful these days anywhere. Instead I can use my car down to the EuroTunnel and from there drive to some great places of interest across Europe. As a precaution we have already booked Brittany Ferries for our main holiday next year.Worth watching:
What happens if we never get a vaccine? Will you stop flying altogether?
It all comes down to acceptable risk - wear a face mask, wash your hands regularly, limit interaction with cabin crew/airport workers, take anti-bacterial wipes and wipe down your seat & tray table.
You have certainly changed your tune. Up until covid, weren't you one of them?St Malo overnight is a great experience ...excellent facilities and restaurant serving an A La Carte Menu...superb seafood selection, good food and wine then retire for the evening and arrive in St Malo around 7am totally refreshed a total different experience to be sat in LBA with the piss heads.
Its called choice..thankfully mine are different to yours. Viva la difference..As to travel we can call at places like Oxford enroute to Portsmouth. An overnight on a cruise ferry to be dropped in the heart of Brittany at St Malo..Trust me a whole world experience different to airports and flying.
Just find it funny that on a forum dedicated to airports, airlines and the aviation industry as a whole, there's a number of people who would rather travel by other modes of transport...and by the sounds of things, regardless of Covid!I know what I'd rather do, but each to their own.
