    Omicron variant and the measures implemented in response to it

    I’m very glad to see the back of masks and vaccine passports in England. This is a long overdue change which should be welcomed and I hope will never return. I do, however, find this slightly depressing as a resident of Scotland who could be facing masks for 6 years!

    Avanti West Coast Rolling Stock Updates

    Was thinking about this the other day, it’s been there for months! I’m sure it was due out early 2022, but I imagine, being the first set, there’ll be delays.

    Omicron variant and the measures implemented in response to it

    Particularly as the response to covid is entirely to blame for this.

    Omicron variant and the measures implemented in response to it

    Really, what we are asking ourselves here at the root of this (and it is a moral/philosophical question more than a medical/scientific one) is 'what is the correct balance between prioritising quantity (ie length) and quality (this is a much deeper concept, but for me it includes the ability for...

    Mark Drakeford is definitely one of them.

    Doesn’t matter - it’s not covid!

    Do you need to self isolate if not tracked and traced?

    There is no legal requirement to self-isolate in Scotland whatsoever, even if you test positive. The entire isolation system is just guidance. :)

    Made to take a test for work

    Not strictly work related, but my university has mandated taking a LFD test before coming onto Campus from the start of this term. As a student teacher in Scotland, I’m also expected to test twice a week before going into school, although this isn’t mandated and I’ve never been asked to produce...

    New Restrictions for Wales announced for after Boxing Day

    If a full lockdown, the toughest possible measures, isn’t “sufficient”, then pray tell what would be!

    Supermarket Update (2)

    I would say the exact opposite, as someone who is exempt from wearing a mask but has been questioned 8 times and shouted at 4 times for not wearing one in the past 24 hours alone, I want nothing more than for this mandate to end. It really makes life difficult.

    Avanti Advance - What can I do?

    Hi All, I’ve got an AP for this evening from Euston to Carlisle. I was originally booked on the 17:57 Avanti Pendolino as far as Lancaster, where I was to wait for 40 mins and catch the 20:55 Pendolino (18:30 off Euston) as far as Carlisle. The 17:57 is now being terminated short at Preston...

    Omicron variant and the measures implemented in response to it

    I see UK government ministers are now even calling out the devolved nations for having a response that is far too heavy-handed: (https://twitter.com/sajidjavid/status/1475887245227962375?s=21) If it turns out that Sturgeon and Drakeford have unnecessarily closed businesses, harmed the...

    Omicron variant and the measures implemented in response to it

    Couldn't agree more. If anything, these past two years have taught me one thing more than anything else. Life and freedom is such a precious thing. My biggest fear/regret is not that I catch COVID and end up seriously ill, but rather that I don't make the absolute most of the time I have here at...
