    Coronavirus - political views - supporting or otherwise...

    Ah ok, I think it should be extended to shops too, in fact any public space & it should have been done many weeks ago. The day a government locks down its society is the day that the wearing of face masks should be made compulsory in public (doing the former without the latter is kinda...

    Has this changed now? I read that the wearing of face masks was for public transport

    Coronavirus - how is it/has it affected you?

    Yeah a couple of people decided to ignore the beach rule on day one 😑 It was therapeutic though, sat on a bench and smoked a pipe then hit the range at the golf club (knackered) then headed south for braai with friends (fillet steak has just gone on) Simple things that we've missed 😉

    Coronavirus - how is it/has it affected you?

    Today it's having quite a positive effect First time in 73 days for us to go out for a short walk Beach still off limits so this is as close as we could get

    Coronavirus - how is it/has it affected you?

    I'd (guessed) that the UK went with 2m instead of the WHO min 1m because so many in the UK don't use metric to measure (likely the elderly too) so it was just safer to double up to 2m

    Coronavirus - how is it/has it affected you?

    Yeah with hindsight to get totally clear is obviously worth it but when I've seen the UK ease things over the last week it's been tougher There's little doubt we haven't seen the last of it, when the airport reopens someone will bring it in (the restricted repatriation flights even brought a...

    Coronavirus - how is it/has it affected you?

    The PM here announced the partial lifting of our medical curfew with shops and some other social activities approved too Overnight I got the first email from a golf club saying they would be open from tomorrow! Brilliant news because if one is opening they all will On top of that news it...

    Coronavirus - how is it/has it affected you?

    I think you're 100% correct to stick with safety measures and I'll be doing the same for the foreseeable future too Announced last night that non food Shops can reopen from tomorrow here and wearing masks anywhere in public will remain mandatory The way we shop has changed, not just for a few...

    Coronavirus - how is it/has it affected you?

    Yup, the only case in that time was a couple repatriated from India who brought it with them but they were quarentined on arrival anyway, so we've nothing in the general population The current curfew lasts until this Monday so we're crossing everything we get it lifted (you can never tell round...

    Coronavirus - how is it/has it affected you?

    Its getting very weary hearing about the social phased returns going on. Day 71 of our lock-down and while I'm allowed in the office today its curfew conditions here again this weekend (hopefully the last weekend like this) From first active case to virus-free eradication was just 40 days here...

    When do you think you will next play golf?

    A work trip just before lockdown kicked in means its three months today since I last played. Still no official word if courses here will open next week (or if our curfew will even end) but I have a tee booked for Wednesday in anticipation....

    What's with the fifteen minutes?

    This should not be a 'god knows' answer should it. Have any of the UK countries dropped the social distancing requirement, are any planning to drop the 2m requirement? Maybe I'm wrong but I thought this is still in place so you shouldn't be inside 2m to god knows how many people and if you do...

    Wasn't it less than 24 hours ago the WHO were issuing warnings about second wave/peaks etc This kind of thing does my head in :cautious: edit: not you doing my head in, the WHO (y)

    I see the guy uses twitter like an addict but I thought he was well out of line using a picture of a child's funeral to make a point. Very insensitive & a bit twisted

    Ryanair at it again

    Seriously, are you in politics? Great spin The difference in the details matters not, I still don't have my money back, that is the only bottom line I'll give them more time just as I would if it was ryanair They're both using tactics to push vouchers and make it difficult to opt for refund...

    Ryanair at it again

    Laugh it up then To get a refund BA insist I make an international call (I only have a mobile) to a call centre that drops my call each time I try it because they are so busy. I haven't even had an acknowledgement to my emails sent weeks ago when they cancelled my flights.... But if I want a...

    Ryanair at it again

    BA can't meet proper refund timelines too though so those looking to boycott airlines might want to add them and probably a fair few others (although you might not have a whole lot of choice when flying resumes if you apply a boycott evenly )
