Assuming supplies keep up, it should only keep going up - albeit they need to slow down first doses soon for the 2nd doses but I know that Ravenscraig, which was on the mass centre list released, is coming online from Monday.

I imagine, supply permitting and more of these sites coming on, we must be going to get close to 80k per day shortly.

Unfortunately I’m not sure supply will support even 60k a day for too much longer and based on delivery schedules we may well struggle to ever get back to it. This strikes me as the probable high point, helped partially by unused stock from a week or two ago. Sturgeon warning of poorer supply corresponds with the now deleted document, deliveries for the next fortnight were always scheduled to be well down. That’ll have an impact.

Nonetheless, it’s magnificent to see and clearly we have the capacity to get back to 50-60k a day easily, and probably much higher, if deliveries allow. That’s about all we can ask of the government.

This is pretty off topic, however we were discussing yesterday about civil liberties and freedom of speech and I find this ruling to be absolutely terrifying.

The more I think about it, the more I believe that people should just stop using all social media, giving their honest opinion or posting anything that can be used to screw them over at a later date, even if it's by no means outrageous. Of course the fact I'm typing this on an internet forum does have a certain irony......

Not listened to the briefing today - what dumb questions have the journalists come out with today? 

More about "Alex Salmond inquiry"?  "I know a 71 year old who has still to receive an appointment - what has gone wrong? followed by the same question, and again and then a question asking for an exact date as to when a family of four can go to Cancun on holiday?

Maybe if you’re going to talk shit about someone pick on some daft painter and decorator or gardener instead of a fucking law firm who can sue you at no expense to themselves! Christ

It's still there for opinions though, if they don't want good and bad then they shouldn't ask.

I just find this ridiculous and is setting a very dangerous precedent.

Sun moaning cause some old biddy was too cold to stand in a queue and might now need to wait a while to get rebooked if they don't want to travel.

Yes, that was covered.

No, what people need to learn is what can constitute a defamatory statement and not plaster them over the internet.

UK and Irish residents returning from coronavirus hotspots face fines of up to £10,000 and 10-year jail sentences if they break new travel rules, Health Secretary Matt Hancock has said.

People who are required to quarantine in hotels will have to pay £1,750, which covers the cost of accommodation, transport and testing.

There are ways to leave negative reviews online without alleging they are a scam. That was his problem, that it’s not ok to make claims about their business that aren’t true. If he sticks to his opinion that are a rubbish company and doesn’t recommend them, this goes nowhere.

I’m not sure he helps himself by asking for his money back to take down the review afterwards either.

Find me one company with "reviews" which doesn't have any negative / defamatory statements about them, ultimately it's your opinion based on your own experience and going by what the bloke said, I don't think he's said anything really outrageous as he obviously felt ripped off. Yes, you do get the nonsense stuff but I wouldn't have this in that category.

The bottom line is that people should just stop giving reviews as it only costs them time and they get nothing out of it, however they are potentially risking a huge fine if someone doesn't like what they've said.

My folks have received a text message offering them their first vaccination at the very suspicious sounding "Vaccination Bus" that will be at their local GP surgery.

ONS surveys have shown that 92% of adults in the UK would take the COVID vaccine.  In the over 70s the acceptance rate is 99% in this survey.  Very high acceptance rate in the 50-79 age group as well.

Very encouraging.

Which shows just how pointless talk of vaccine passports are for any sort of access to public events domestically.
