these days, an Englishman’s home truly is his castle
a castle in the clouds is as far as I’m likely to get
Just going to the store is becoming very complicated here. To begin with you can’t pay in cash, for most places you have to stand in line outside for a while, and in a few days time we are all going to have to start wearing face nappies again in stores. Face coverings are a requirement on public transport too, but the last time I was on a train, (just last week), hardly anyone bothered with that.
Train timetables are very restricted, for some services one must book in advance, and when you get to wherever the train is going you will find that most ‘attractions’ are shut.
The airlines are flying again, but face masks are a requirement in airports and on aircraft. How much fun would it be for me to wear a face mask for a continuous 24 hours if I was travelling to the USA? No fun at all. Not that I could fly to the USA in any event, because immigration wouldn’t let me in, and even if I was stopped at the US border I would still face 14 days quarantine when I returned to the UK.
That’s the problem with overseas travel. Theoretically there are flights, but when you get to where you’re going you’re probably going to be facing 14 days of self-isolation. Rather spoils the average vacation of business trip.
It’s all utterly pointless and political ~ nothing to do with health at all. Turns out that the number of COVID-19 deaths is very hyped / inflated. All deaths will be recorded as coronavirus related, whenever and whatever poor soul tested positive for the virus, even if the proximate cause of mortality was being run over by a bus.
I hope the right people start to make the right decisions soon. But I very much doubt it.
not going to happen for me any time soon
