Under lockdown no one met anyone? You are having a laugh.

I was in the UK and witnessed the Fred Karno at shops. Not everyone had their food delivered by supermarkets. The plebs still had to go out. People hadnt a clue. Partly due to lack of government guidance and maybe lack of a problem. It was weeks before the supermarkets instilled a degree of discipline. Two metres, one way systems, spraying trolleys, paying only by card, perspex screens.

If masks are so good how come you in the uk are not wearing them everywhere yet? We in Spain have to.

I agree about the media . Quite shocking really. They have a lot to answer for. I wait for the day someone brings a legal case against say Kuensberg for causing a bad outcome.

Ha ha. We aint got no Covid.

Dont intend to get it either.

Have a look at funerals, raves, student night outs on the lash, slave labour businesses.

Where is Grant Shaps and his family a mere few hours before his announcement? Rule for the plebs but not the bosses? Who is going to pay his post travel quarantine? Why you of course.

I agree with your assertion that the government seems to be media led. If masks are so good why havent we all been told to wear them from day one.?

Chasing on the phone?

My experience with passportoffice. You get a message saying weare very busy, please hold, one of our operatives will be with you. Then itclicks and says how long e.g. five minutes. Then a newcall tree with wouldyou like acall back? . Ignorethat four times and hope for an operator. Then aclick and it defaults to please key thenumber you want dialling back on. Of course no one dialls you back.

Covid 19 , customer service gone out of the window.

Maybe I was a bit harsh, should have said cost of living is more in France than Spain.

Just had a freshly brewed coffee served in a cup and a freshly squeezed orange juice At motorway services in Spain . 3 euros 40.

Everything seems more expensive in France. Our hotel in Nogent Rotru was a superior room 78 euros. No breakfast. Shabby. Last night in Mondragon was clean spacious comfortable .70 euros and included breakfast.

Drew, it is a mad world.

Got to say I feel relaxed now I am back. Rip off France was a shock to the system.

Passport arrived after three weeks and numerous phone calls and supporting material as to why it was now urgent.

400,000 backlog? I would have thought they do about 300,000 a month normally?

 Am not backat my desk officially until Monday but I am back in Spain ( Mondragon) in the Basque Country.

Not good for the travel industry, Spanish hotels or indeed the small number of folk expecting to get away to the sun. We had a friend coming next month but she would have been expected quite reasonably to self isolate at her expense and couldn't afford it.

How would you feel if on arrival for your two weeks in the sun, face masks in public were mandatory? Obviously not on the beach , pool and bar/restaurants.

Can't understand you're passport problem , I got my nice new blue one last Tuesday which took 10 days from start to finish .

As mine expires end of August, I took the plunge and applied online on the 3rd July. I have rung them several times over the last few months and each time been told they cannot give a time scale for receiving a new one due to CV19. I had intended renewing when(if?) I ever manage to go home however I need to get going this month for a variety of reasons. As advised , I included a supporting letter with my passport , sent recorded delivery, explaining why I need to get back home.

The new beta tracking system of your application is great except it showed nothing happening despite sending my old passport by recorded delivery. So rang them on Friday 10th and got someone in their home office that fobbed me off. She did say that she would get someone to ring me back within 48 hours. That hasn't happened of course. However today " old passport  received 10:08am on 12 July 2020". Application so far  9 days. I will let you know if it arrives tomorrow....

I am still stuck in the good old UK.

Anyone else noticed that customer service seems to have gone back 30 years under the Covid19 excuse. No idea when your order will be fulfilled or when it will arrive. Amazon prime only works next day for items they consider urgent. Everything else comes later to suit them.

Now more shops are open, has anyone been marshalled on dots or lines? Or heard staff barking at folk straying from protocol?

I am trying to renew my passport but passport office cannot cope with demand. No face to face applications, cannot give a date when it will be fulfilled as service level agreements have been suspended.

Is it potential life in prison for violation?

Is there something better to run a smart tv and say a laptop off the end of an ethernet cable?

Just found a poly bag of headlight washer items off a mini facelift Elite. There maybe stuff off two cars. Pumps, loom, pipes, and one pair of the actual headlight washers. Each only has one nozzle. I remember the set with two nozzles went to someone on here a few years back.

Sorry it is a bit vague. If you are interested in more detail I could do a photo.

Just cover the p and p. Item located in Yorkshire near sunny Scarborough.
