Coronavirus: UK detention centres 'emptied in weeks' https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-52560093

So there was a case of Covid-19 at the detention centre and the response was to let everyone out into the community?  ???

Did you try rocking it in gear with the ignition OFF?  ???

That will often free them up as DG mentioned earlier.  :y

As far as I know I've never had it, but for about 2 weeks in February I completely lost my sense of taste.  :-\

I was starting to think about seeing the quack when it started to return and I've since read that it could be a mild symptom, but who knows....

No it's not, it's late autumn....  ::)

OZ/NZ might not have stopped the virus, but I reckon they have been pretty successful in limiting the opportunity for infected people to enter their countries, which must have contributed to their low infection/death rates so far.

We will see what happens when they open up again.  :-\

Their apparent success is down to the fat the population density is the square root of jack all.

You only need to look at the hot spots in the UK, they are the most densely populated areas with towers blocks and crammed in housing, an ideal transmission ground (it only takes a few idiots in such places and it moves easily, less densely populated and it has minimal impact)  :y

I think you'll find that the Aussies and Kiwis have their fair share of fatties!  ;D

What has been the point of the lock down anyway, when thousands of people flood into the country every day from all round the world and just disperse into the community without even having their temperature checked?  ::)

I get the idea of quarantine for those arriving in the country by air,but what about those arriving by ferry/the tunnel or have I missed that they aren't operating non-trade services?


Ferries and shuttle are only allowing freight, and UK Nationals,  and persons with legitimate reasons to travel, being enforced on French side.

Unless they have a dinghy and a pair of oars. There have been fickin hundreds of them arriving this week.
Imo the quarantining  of arrivals is at least two months too late. GB is an island and in theory at least, could have kept the virus from arriving on its shores.


New Zealand have pretty much managed this and Australia also to a lesser extent.  :y

It's the southern hemispheres summer. Their 'flu' rates typically lag the northern hemisphere by 6 months or so.

NZ has had 1144 confirmed cases and 21 deaths.
AUS has had 6927 confirmed cases and 97 deaths.

So neither country "kept the virus from arriving on its shores". And in a years time their rates will be similar to the rest of the developed world.

No it's not, it's late autumn....  ::)

Nearest coasts to both are a few thousand miles ... ours is around 20  ... population of New Zealand .. around 5 million .. .. population of Australia .. 24 million  population of London alone ??   around 10 million ..

so lets continue to compare apples to water melons ... yup .. they are both edible fruits.... I think thats about it ..

What's the distance from coasts got to do with it?  Haven't you heard of aeroplanes?  ???  Hold on... Didn't you used to work for the RAF?  :P  ;D

As to population size, I can't see what that has to do with anything either?  I bet that more people enter the UK on a daily basis than OZ/NZ combined.  So even more reason to close the borders!  ::)

Apparently, even now around 15,000 people a day are entering the UK from all over the world.  They don't face any sort of health checks or controls and are allowed to disperse off into the community.  The UK is the only country in the world not to have any sort of health checks for arrivals or Covid-19 related border controls and we have the second highest death rate.  ::)

Go figure....

I've been perusing Facebook, Twitter and watching the news this evening, and it seems that there are 3 types of people in this country at the moment.

Firstly there are those who expect the Government to organise every aspect of this down to the Nth degree and to be told exactly what to do in great detail.

Secondly there are those who seem to understand the risks and consequences, and are prepared to make their own decisions to suit their own circumstances using their common sense.

And then there are the third type who just don't give a toss....

Yes, what did people expect?  ::)

I've had an annoying leak into the boot on the Mondeo and the spare wheel well soon becomes a pond in wet weather.  :(

So today I finally got round to doing something about it and removed the rear bumper to find that the nearside boot vent was loose.  So removed both vents, cleaned them up and refitted with plenty of silicone to seal them.  Refitted the bumper and hopefully jobs a goodun!  :y
