    BoJo won't take a blind bit of notice of this. He will goto Doom & Gloom and say if i go for step 4 what the risk of having to reverse it later. They will say we are not sure but best to be cautious if you really want to avoid that scenario. BoJo well im told everyone it has to be irreversible...

    The world is very interconnected space and i don't mean the internet. Your assertion that they don't need to prop up coffee shops is fine but behind that coffee shop is a multitude of suppliers who all need things like commercial insurance that will provide income to the likes of the financial...

    Not round here this morning they doubled down with service to be resumed by 1230 which then became 1530 even after the lines were reopened they kept on turning everything around short.

    Never read her stuff before but you have prompted me to take a a look but i realise why i haven't before! Anyhow seems shes an advocate for elimination as the only viable course of action but doesn't explain how to do that other than keep the borders closed, wear mask more ventilation and fix...

    Should restrictions be eased fully if Indian Variant case rates do not decline before June 21st?

    No its the reality of the situation but then so is a multitude of other risks we have to confront on a daily basis. What we have now though is tantamount to a Zero Covid policy being exercised by the govt without any reference to whether thats what people want. The other concern I have here now...

    Should restrictions be eased fully if Indian Variant case rates do not decline before June 21st?

    This is simply that Boris is hoist by his own petard of saying it had to be irreversible so he's weighed up the risk of letting Step 4 go ahead then having to reverse it and decided on balance its a tad too risky for him. This is all about him and his needs not the rest of us and this data not...

    Should restrictions be eased fully if Indian Variant case rates do not decline before June 21st?

    As soon as this roadmap was published i saw the fact that not quoting any specific data thresholds for the steps gave them a free hand to do what they wanted. So whilst you and I and majority of this forum would say the data speaks for itself because there isn't anything specific published they...

    Where will we be able to go Abroad restriction free from May 17th ? (Europe)

    Latest case rates/100k over last 7 days would suggest that most of these countries would be wise to put UK on banned list but most of them are falling over themselves to allow us in because a highly vaccinated population presents a significantly reduced threat. That said until i can just travel...

    With too many people having been brainwashed already along with the scientists overtly acting on side of caution Boris would have always needed to keep something to keep that group happy.

    Should restrictions be eased fully if Indian Variant case rates do not decline before June 21st?

    Arghh i see when you open the regs it defaults to the original need to select latest version. As you say they will have drafted amendment No.1 to The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (Steps and Other Provisions) (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2021 already for laying down on...

    Should restrictions be eased fully if Indian Variant case rates do not decline before June 21st?

    The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Wearing of Face Coverings on Public Transport) (England) Regulations 2020 were made on 14th June 2020 and in force from 15th June 2020 with a life of 12 months so my take is from Tuesday is they can't enforce masks...

    Should restrictions be eased fully if Indian Variant case rates do not decline before June 21st?

    I voted for it when this thread started but unfortunately its now spreading out from several areas especially the NW so that option is now gone. This variant will now radiate out from hotspots with only vaccinations able to moderate its spread so the so called experts advice to govt of course...

    Should restrictions be eased fully if Indian Variant case rates do not decline before June 21st?

    Yes hospitalisation is up a few 100 over last two weeks to c900 but set that in the context of the 120,000 beds the NHS has and to suggest its unsustainable pressure is a bit of a stretch. Whats more impressive is we have had Step 3 and the curved ball of the Delta variant yet we aren't being...

    ECML Power Supply Upgrade

    No. The spacing of feeder stations is a factor of how frequently you want to run electric trains and the demand from each train and you also need to factor in perturbation situations. ie a half hourly service each way may only ever see 2 trains taking a load over a 40km long feeder section but...

    Argh didn't know that it was already full scheme by the time i secured a position as a junior engineer on the project. At the end of the day there was limited grid points in Northumberland and Borders area so had to use what was on offer. CEGB were also quite worried at that time about the...

    Covid 19 has been a boon for the media especially online papers to drive website views to keep advertising up so they just want to headlines to keep us interested. They will quickly switch horses if they see the pendulum swinging the other way and I would say that is beginning to happen with...

    The ability to timetable hasn't been and even 2018 that wasn't the issue on GTR it was one of resourcing which is where EMR seem to find themselves although their website is silent. The response to the findings of the numerous enquiries conducted after 2018 was that there was to be Industry...
