  1. Past hour
  2. No doubt Harpo tv has done very well out of the scandal.
  3. Yesterday
  4. Judges have all the time in the world, and they tend to use it.
  5. A pair of spoilt brats, seeking publicity, then moaning when it doesn't suit them. ๐Ÿ˜ 
  6. Better Judges methinks; and better drafted laws that leave no room for misinterpretation. ๐Ÿ˜ 
  7. Last week
  8. As I said, in the earliest stage, IE the flights from Wuhan; they started with the correct approach, by bussing them to a hotel in the Wirral; then they let go of the ball and have been chasing it ever since. ๐Ÿ˜ท
  9. Which is exactly why these cases take so long to go through the courts. If you change the law the lawyers will take even longer arguing against it. Perhaps the government should employ better lawyers?
  10. No, you blame the Government for everything, but when they gave notice about quarantine starting the relevant folks decided to come back and avoid it. Next you might argue that they shouldn't give notice and when people arrive back here they have to go into quarantine without notice and unable to pay, you would then complain about that. Fact is you just complain about the Government whatever they do, it is impossible for them to do anything right because they have to consider the public and you don't have to.
  11. In all honesty though ,these emerging variants are similar to the common cold virus which can provide any one of us with 3 or 4 colds a year ,from a sniffle to a full blown assault on our immune systems. There will be so many more variants emerging in the future that it will be impractical to isolate in every case & the whole policy of isolation will fizzle out as humanity begins to deal with the virus.
  12. OK Sid - so HMG were 5 days behind the curve. If we think back to beginning, they made a promising start, with all the evacuated Brits from Wuhan being taken to a quarantine hotel in the Wirral; however that soon dropped off, and arrivals were allowed to make their own way home, spreading as they go. ๐Ÿ˜ท
  13. Just thinking ,this virus could be the inspiration for a Netflix rock opera with the main song being My Corona by the Knack. Even the errant Royals could be the stars of the show. The plot could take us from a karate Kid inspired wet market ,through Holby City to the vaccine emerging from a Dreaming Spire. The finale could be a worldwide peace initiative with Trump,Biden ,Putin & who Flung Dung from Korea bedecked in saffron robes ,complete with finger cymbals.
  14. Just this minute tried it and opens fine, no messages about being blocked or anything.
  15. The hotel isolation came into force on Monday February 15th. The people with the Brazilian variant came back on the 10th of February, five days BEFORE the hotel isolation rule kicked in. Been in all the papers and on the bbc website amongst others.
  16. perhaps these hr lawyers should be made to undertake work for free. If they had to do that i wonder how many cases would be represented....๐Ÿค”
  17. Lawyers and Judges interpret the law, Parliament makes it, or should do. ๐Ÿ˜ท
  18. A flat rate bonus to all those at the front line, beats a hand clap any day. ๐Ÿ˜ท
  19. I can imagine the lawyers could clog up the courts for months, if not years, arguing against any such measures Obs. Courts have a tendency not to rush to judgement on anything.
  20. A sensible suggestion Gary. However something I don't understand is that the NHS has a huge number of managers (many of whom have no doubt been sat at home on full pay for the last 12 months), so why aren't they managing the salary structure in the organisation? I'm sure that the doctors and nurses dealing with the ICU and other "front line" positions have been working their socks off dealing with the pandemic, but what about the large numbers who haven't been working at all because non-covid related illness is being, seemingly, put on the back burner for now? Perhaps it's too convenient to us
  21. Yes but Iโ€™ll bet itโ€™s black and white with three channels and still shows the test card. ๐Ÿ˜Š Bill ๐Ÿ˜Š
  22. Bill

    1% NHS ???

    I think Iโ€™d be tempted to withdraw the offer completely until such times as we have a clearer view of what the future holds. As Gary points out, itโ€™s not just the NHS that have been hit by this but weโ€™re not out of it yet and itโ€™d be wiser to wait and see how things go before starting to award pay rises to anyone. Bill ๐Ÿ˜Š
  23. Gary

    1% NHS ???

    This is the problem when you operate a one cap fits all policy. I am sure there are many in the NHS (and elsewhere) who deserve bigger pay rises and 1pc does look insulting. May be if they had a sliding scale offering 5pc to those earning under 30K a year to zero to those earning more than 100k - who also earn twice as much working privately as well. I am earning less now than I was 10 years ago and the only pay rises we have been able to provide are in line with the living wage. This is down to the fact we are working in the real world where everything has had to be cut to the
  24. The page looks to be working fine to me - or have you been blocked from posting anymore?
  25. The person lived in the UK and the hotels were not ready as most of us have already told you. You really should try reading the replies or get rid of that old telly. ๐Ÿ˜Š As regarding booking holidays now, that's mega risky because if theyโ€™re allowed to travel then canโ€™t afford the hotel quarantine, the airlines wonโ€™t give any refunds because the flight itself hasn't been cancelled. Bill ๐Ÿ˜Š
  26. Until we get a variant that can side step the vaccines. ๐Ÿ˜ท
