It does indeed happen all the time, I know this from having a fair few friends in the RAF and Navy based at Yeovilton, its unusual to make the press though.

The last time they came round the UK like this we were on a high alert and all leave was cancelled, the UK government IS taking the threat from Russia seriously.

I see several posts stating that despite their size that Russia have an incredibly low rate of Covid19 with just 658 cases and only 3 deaths in a population of 145m people. Thats probably more to do with not having open borders as we have in europe and there is a lack in freedom of movement.

I am guessing that if there is a vaccine then the health care workers and those deemed in the highest risk from the disease will be first, followed by the other emegency services then the old and everyone else followed on afterwards.

Just my probably ill educated guess.



Not at all, this is surely the sensible view and you'd think testing, when they finally arrive, will follow a similar pattern. NHS, Care Workers and at Risk Members of the public first.

It's a better view than the Government is trying to kill off the elderly

Our clap for the health workers and the police is ace in my little street. All the little kids who haven’t seen each other for 2 weeks are all shouting to each other. The clap itself lasts about 3 or 4 minutes then someone in the street plays a tune really loud and everyone sings 😀 last night it was Queen - I want to break free !

"We'll do whatever it takes to defeat coronavirus". Except join in a joint procurement scheme with the EU to secure ventilators which would see us being able to get them quicker and cheaper than trying to manufacture our own from scratch.

Literally putting Brexit ahead of people's lives. Absolutely criminal.

"The government has said it is currently changing the way deaths are recorded."
Wonder if that means they will be fiddled?

It is very strange. Plenty of Costa Blanca properties were sold to the Russians, the builders even adapted to their style to suit because of the demand. Driving down the N332 coastal road from Alicante loads of billboards were/are written in Russian.

Or Russia are just not reporting real figures.... Putin and his propaganda machine wouldn’t want to show any sign of weakness in his leadership.

Well, I've been officially furloughed from the end of next week until the end of May. On full pay though, which is good of the company. Funny really, being suspended on full pay would have been the absolute dream a month ago.

All systems go for me by the looks of it, I even had (unrequested) reassurances from my main client last night.

It looks as though I'm about to be as busy as I've ever been over the coming weeks and months. Which I am grateful for, but I am a tad envious of those that get (paid) time off.

Looks like i'm set for a 10-20% salary cut, which make loads of sense being in IT and the past 2 weeks I've probably given the company 20-30% extra of my time and am probably expected to keep doing so to help keep the ship afloat. No chance.

Looks like the self employed will pay more national insurance in the future. About time.
