    And that's what I find so troubling, Lex.

    I've seen so-called experts get things wrong so many times, mainly when they're desperate to find something that 'looks' right and fits the agenda.
    Of course it'll fit, you just need a bigger hammer.

    The end's in sight (hopefully!): https://www.stratford-herald.com/new...kdown-9157756/

    Problems are predicted with pubs, though: https://www.coventrytelegraph.net/ne...-open-19895699 A couple of my locals are going to struggle to fit enough customers into their gardens to make opening worthwhile (those that have gardens!)

    They are talking about passports now to prove you've had the vaccine.
    I doubt sometimes whether a quiet and unagitated life would have suited me - yet I sometimes long for it.

    I would suggest scare tactics to force you into taking the vaccine, Margaret.

    You've often needed to prove vaccinations to other countries so nothing new there.

    Things start opening up in two weeks time and they've only just started debating it. How long would it take to get a system up and running? Track and trace didn't exactly work, did it?

    Gove (nasty greasy little twerp) is leading the review into possible passports and is expected to report back findings just before the final stage of opening things up. If we've got that far I can't see anything happening, never mind the time it would take to push legislation through. Stammer [SIC] might decide to grow a pair and oppose, but a lot of the Tories are already anti this type of thing.

    Of course, individual premises are free to do what they wish as long as they break none of the current discrimination laws. My religion forbids me to take vaccines, how about yours? - I don't think anyone's allowed to question religion.

    I might add that Gove (much as I despise him) seems to be personally against legislation.

    I was reading in the paper earlier that there's talk about adding the vaccination to the track & trace app, so that'll be a b***s up from the start, especially as the app won't work on older mobile phones.
