A professional Yorkshireman always takes their litter home. It gives you a chance to think about if it might come in useful one day.

A Lancastrian's definition of a Yorkshireman

A Scotsman with all the generosity wrung out of him

I do hope that an infrastructure is NOT put in place on the NC 500 route. The whole area will lose its uniqueness or end up tarnished like a south coast resort..

I do, Misc, and I have. I've lived in the Highlands, I've lived in Cornwall and people do visit Suffolk, where I've been fortunate enough to live for the last quarter of a century. I try to live and let live.

@Miscellaneous, I'm glad the good people of Suffolk could send it back to its home - that's what the buses are still like here, though :wink: . Lerwick and the surrounding area is one of the most wonderful places on the planet. I worked there for a few days a couple of years ago and I just loved the place.

The sun must have been shining .
HMS Adamant crew scrubbed together and bought a bus like that for runs ashore out of Plymouth in ‘64.

The sun was indeed shining but that didn't seem to raise the temperature much. Those long beaches with white sand and clear blue sea, it was like the Bahamas with the air conditioning turned right up.

The new law is out: The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (No. 2) (England) (Amendment) (No. 4) Regulations 2020 (this is an amendment so must be read alongside The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (No. 2) (England) Regulations 2020 as the latter link hasn't been updated with the amendments by the legislation.gov.uk people yet).

In general the limit is now six people. There are exceptions for support groups, significant life events, sporting/fitness activities (but not spectators or parents) and some others. Mostly the exceptions that permit gatherings of more than six are required to be outdoors, to have been risk assessed and to have some other mitigations.

Maybe if flu killed as many in a six month period, despite the lockdown, we would have to lockdown for flu? :D

@johnm sorry, to me your post says nothing, coming across as yet another opportunity taken to tell us how much you despise any govt.


Apparently, the ONS is reporting that flu and pneumonia has killed more people than Covid since June.

Enough of this nonsense, millions of people are about to get nasty when the economic effects hit them personally. Everyone needs to get back to work or just stay out of everyone else's way.

Comparing Covid19 with flu is like comparing a Spitfire to a Jumbo jet. The problem is childishly simple, we have screwed up test, trace and isolate and we have given inconsistent guidance and confused people. so infection control isn't working properly.

That leaves us (as so often in the UK) with nothing but damage limitation strategies, face covering, distancing and high levels of hygiene so that most folk can get back to work and the grouse moors don't go bust.

The difficulty with the disease is that its impact is unpredictable and therefore keeping infection at the lowest level possible ensures that health services stand a chance of coping. If test, trace and isolate was working effectively there would be less of a problem and if we could be sure of symptoms that would help, but as things stand some of the routine diseases that children pick up and bring home at the start of term look like Covid and the testing system needs to determine whether it is or it isn't.
