I see Kelso races have announced a 4k capacity cap for meetings from 1 October to circumvent the passport requirements. Wonder how many non all seated sports arenas might do likewise ?

Dunhill Links Golf next weekend has put a daily limit of 4,000 per day per course.

This has always been the case, no?  RoI has been in the common travel area and therefore no need to quarantine when arriving from there.

Yup, the Dublin dodge as it's known. There's always the risk of being questioned whether you've been outside the common travel area in the last 10 days.

Yes and no. It was always a loophole, however it was an offence to make a false declaration on a PLF.

Now there are no PLFs, there can be no offence.

There was never a need for a PLF travelling from Dublin to UK, same as London to Inverness. If you're unlucky enough to be questioned and you've been in a red listed country in the last 10 days, then it's mandatory hotel quarantine at over £2000, not sure about the penalty for lying about it.

Time to bin the lot and just treat this like a normal respiratory disease.
I read somewhere that’s what Norway has done.
Fed up seeing people going about looking subhuman.

UK arrivals are "sub human" that's a bizarre take. Seems you are quoting me with a response to a totally different issue !

Sorry.

Im just letting off steam about the whole situation.

Complete nonsense.

I wouldn't worry about it.

You're far from the only person fed up to the gills of this ultra-cautious shite.

18 months now and swathes of the country are still afraid of our own shadows.

Staff shortages everywhere thanks to the obsession with constant testing and pinging perfectly healthy people.

That leads to shortages everywhere that relies on goods to be transported and an NHS struggling to cope.

And people are calling for more restrictions?

Fear everywhere.

Fucking.

Insane.

Just want to thank you for these stats. I'm sure there is many others who would also post the same, however, won't post on this shambles of a thread anymore including myself. Butthen (that should be word), after a little Dutch courage I'm free like a bird. Cheers mate.

Little crazy again in Thailand.  

The last few weeks Thailand has been jagging between 800,00 & 600,000 per day 7 days a week.  On Thursday last week the Pm came out and told everyone we will vaccinate over 1 million people on Friday in respect of the late King (don't know his name) from 1900.  Cool. On Friday they jagged 1.3m people 1st, 2nd & 3rd doses (3rd dose is for the poor soles that got 2 shots of Sinovac, they now get booster of AZ or Pfizer).

Saturday, we jagged 67,000 Sunday we jagged 32,000.

Still, he got the publicity on TV. c**t

Slippery, what's the word on travel restrictions. I see they are still wanting you to stay in recommended hotels and only opening a few more holiday hot spots. The whole sandbox programme has been a failure(averaged 11 visitors a day in Ko Samui) yet they seem to be persisting with it. Thinking of coming over January but not going to book anything till picture clearer. Is there talk of opening up without all the expensive add-ons when the majority are jagged?

BREAKING! Other illnesses exist
I had to read this bit more than twice.....

According to the scientists, this is unlikely. Dr Peter English, a public health expert, was ‘not surprised’ by all the bizarre ‘Covid, but not Covid’ cases.
‘I wouldn’t worry too much if you have negative tests – they are likely to be a false negative,’ he says.


Are we now moving from self diagnosis of long covid to self diagnosis of covid itself?

Yes.

‘As far as I’m concerned, I’ve had Covid. The tests must be wrong.’

😂

Isn't the more likely explanation that people are being hit harder than normal respiratory viruses because we hid away from them for so long our immune systems were less able to fight them off?

I mean it's quite obvious that if you take multiple tests and they come back negative that you do not have covid.

People are either terrified still or, more likely in this case, people simply want to get a positive PCR result back so they can let the world know they had the covid.

I feel a bit sorry for folk again in this. For nearly two years now, everything is covid. The symptom lists expanded beyond any reason, and, of course owing to restrictions hardly anyone was ever ill. You cant cough without folk expecting you to immediately declare that youv had a test...

Who were the absolute legends on here a couple of weeks ago who were telling us there are definitely these ridiculous huge 'sterile' zones at games down in England, btw? 😅

Because the visual proof is quite clear that these are not a thing down there.

I was at a game in England at the weekend.  The only "sterile" zones were there to try and stop the home fans lobbing missiles at the away fans.

It's tiny in comparison to up here. 300 ST holders moved from around the dugout at Liverpool and 200 at MU for example.
