I’ll just leave this here.

‘ Already, powerful government advisers have mass travel in their sights as they ponder how Britain can meet the government’s legally binding target of reducing carbon emissions to net zero by 2050. For them, Covid restrictions have been a dry run for how our lifestyles might be curtailed in future for the good of the planet.

Yes, that would mean turning the clock back to the era when travel was so complicated and expensive that only the most dedicated and economically blessed among us would consider getting away. And as the numbers of putative passengers to Spain, say, fell, then there would be fewer flights, and those would be offered at higher prices. Throw in testing that costs as much as the holiday itself and suddenly, the sort of ordinary Brit who has come to depend on their annual dose of vitamin D wouldn’t be able to afford it anyway.’

Oh and to Sholto’s original reply….. what bloody economy?? It’s done and dusted. All over bar the shouting.

Just wait for the furlough to ‘officially’ end (if it ever does, or will it morph into some form of Universal Basic Income..) and then let’s see the fallout.

Big high street names are closed, the airline industry is on its knees, local bank branches are closing.

Do you live with your head permanently in the sand?

Now we’re talking

Use the bold function properly first.

If anyone is interested, I bought my return covid tests from Medicspot. They are self-testing kits you can take on holiday with you. Three days before you fly home just take an antigen test, upload a photo and you get a certificate.

The whole thing is an absolute scandal, but at least with these tests you can do them in the comfort of your room. They are 100% open for abuse as there is no checking or verification.

Anyway, 10% off and I get a £10 amazon voucher so may as well share this:
https://go.referralcandy.com/share/BVXGBPC or code FRIEND-BVXGBPC

For my day 2 covid tests I used https://www.oncologica.com/ but I gain nothing from this. I was never even contacted by track and trace so I don't know what would have happened if I didn't bother with this test…

Referencing mass media news articles. You're so brainwashed. Can't you see that's what THEY want you to think?

Make up your own mind and get your head out of the sand.

Just travelled to Barcelona with someone else’s negative PCR test that I edited in the Documents app with my details. No one even asked for it at departure or at arrivals.

Stupid ‘rules’ deserve to be broken.

Digital ID and Chinese social credit system.

Check back in six months and see where we are.
