While I’m moaning, I might as well do something useful. If anyone needs testing kits for travel and doesn’t want to get totally ripped off, here’s where I got my 2 and 8: https://covid.randox.com/amber-country/

And here was where I got my pre departure tests and my day 5: https://breatheassured.com/

Those were the cheapest I could find

Just as we’d gone a week with no Covid posts!

I presume cronyism is rearing it’s head so Boris’ chums can keep their snouts in the trough.

Just got back from the States and I need to have a little rant about the testing:

I had to take a test before I came back, no complaints there. Now that I'm home I have to take a test on day 2, a test to release on day 5 (again I understand the reasoning for that) but then I still have to take another on day 8 even though I'm deemed ok to re enter the world when my day 5 comes back negative (which it will unless I get a false positive). Can somebody explain why I'm safe to leave the house on day 5 but still have to pay for a test 3 days later which, to me, seems utterly pointless? I cannot see the reasoning at all. It didn't cost me too much money but I had to search high and low for the best deals; some testing companies are charging two or three times what I've paid and I'm sure there are plenty that will have been suckered into paying those inflated prices. Seems like this testing regime is open to profiteering at best, a racket at worse. What have I missed that makes this a reasonable way to do things?

'Cos there is money to be made, one only has to compare the price of tests over here with the price in just about every other country and note someone is making a fortune.

Speaking to my mate who is heavily involved in vaccination roll out and delivery, apparently the take up in under 30's is absolutely shocking and under 40's isn't much better.

day 8 as you could still show as late as then then. it's a fail-safe to stop people slipping through the day 5 then bring infectious.

that said, with amber and fully vaccinated only need to do a day 2 test. yay

‘But full credit to the NHS, they were non-judgemental and very open to how you wanted to be treated – and my treatment was just keeping my oxygen levels up for a week.’

This really fucked me off. Of course they are non judgemental, because they are super professionals who genuinely want to help people even in the face of people like you who refuse to help themselves or others. He’s a fucking idiot

The South west is now the coronavirus hotspot of the UK

A guy in Twitter @avds number crunches the last 7 days numbers.

As you can see from the south-West attachment, the cases seem to concentrate around holiday hotspots. Glad I went abroad!

What is wrong with these idiots? If you don't want the jab then fine, but storming a building and battling police. Morons.

I assume they are trying to intimidate the MSM (main stream media) who they believe are propagating fear around the 'scandemic'. Total whelks the lot of them.
