I see the Prime Minister's dad has popped over to Greece, against government advice, to have his eyesight tested.

When will you people learn, rules are only for the little people? They're for the (*shudder*) public to follow, not the rich and powerful. Honestly, it's perfectly straightforward.

The FCO travel ban is still in place, the government is expected to announce this will be relaxed from 6 July.

Essential travel only. Which does not include flouncing off to your Greek holiday home

Restrictions are due to be lifted from July 6th. Haven't yet been. You seem as keen to let Stanley Johnson off the hook for breaking the rules as you were to condemn "the public" for (in many cases) not breaking the rules. One rule for them ....

Depends what's announced on 6th July really.

Friend of mine is supposed to be going to Greece in August, BA arbitrarily cancelled the flights last week, citing at least 6 wks for a refund, she has rebooked with Jet2 but that is much riskier as whilst the originals were booked pre pandemic and thus the insurance would possibly pay out, now its at all her own risk.

I expect Johnson will condone his father for breaking the rules, much as he did the general public for going to the beaches, perhaps his old man just has more common sense than us mere mortals.

Don't make things up Paul, I'm just asking a straightforward question. Have you considered a career in politics?  Smiley

I think that anybody that really wants to be a politician should be banned from ever being a politician.

Inherantly in it for just themselves 99.9% of the time.

50k new cases in the USA yesterday - it's OK though, the boss said it will just go away.

a 30k drop in total cases today and only 576 new cases, the lowest since the 17th March when testing was only picking up a fraction of cases

Info on pillar 1 and pillar 2 testing for the last two full weeks, Swindon has gone from 10.61 (15-21 June) to 6.76 (22-28 June) per 100,000 people

Using Knowsley as an example, What’s the statistical significance of the rates going from 6 per 100k to 20 per 100k? 0.006% of the population being infected increasing to 0.02%. Is that an increase or is that just noise??
