It would never work for pubs and restaurants.

I'm thinking more about foreign travel.

It's still rife abroad so we should not be allowing non-vaccinated people out of the country so they can bring back the virus. Yes, they could isolate, but they'd get all snowflakey about that as well, no doubt.

There's worse for us in the food we eat, I don't know why people won't just have the jab. Baffles me.

Vaccinated people can still get the virus and at the moment the line is that they can transmit it.

That was one of the loveliest things to ever happen. Stood in my garden sobbing like a baby! Proud to work for the NHS 👏👏👏👏❤️

I did say schools going back on the 8th March was fuck all to do with the Education of our kids.

3 tests in 10 days, The College I work for as 3650 Students and 260 members of staff, over 10k, 1k a day. It's possible, but the logistics of it aren't as simple as turn up have a test and there you go. Its optional by the way.

The Missus has just been on a teams call as she is going to be involved in the administration of it, obviously all test have to be logged, Students to be given links and instructions of how to register, then booked in for test by their Hall.

It's going to be intersting to see how many take up the option and what the ethnicity breakdown is, the 3 black people I directly work with are all going to refuse test and they've stated they are not having the Vaccine. 

There are approximately 7m secondary/college kids in the UK, 4.5m in Primary.

7m x 3 = 21m test, say 1% are positive, that's 210k new infections.

Loads of parents at lads school have refused to sign the consent form for testing.

Be surprised if more than 50% bother.

Secondary schools require parent consent, Colleges wont, that will be up to the Student, and I reckon the take up will be less than 50%

Most kids want to get back to school to be educated, not to fuck about being tested. Schools have had these testing kits since January, surely they could have opened up as test centres during the lockdown period.

Just got jabbed at the Etihad this morning.  National booking system only let me in on Monday evening (in 60-65 group no underlying health conditions).  Could have gone y’day but working, Unibol first available appt was 8/3.

Etihad was on an industrial scale but not busy. Appt was 1130, rocked up at 1105 and was back in car done at 1115.

You need a licence to drive, a passport to travel abroad so why not have a vaccine passport, the sooner we all get National I.D cards the better, have it chipped when you've been vaxed, simple

Agreed 100% on that, it's ridiculous that we haven't got them. We should also be taking peoples DNA when they're born and put on a database as well, that's another thing that nobody can ever give a good reason for not having (apart from thinking it's all possibly part of some ridiculous control mechanism the illuminati want)

The DNA things odd..

I'm a goody two shoes.. don't break laws etc never have but I still would be funny about having my DNA on a database. Can't explain it. 

Kids back on the 8th.. i think 2 infections can lead to a school closure for deep clean.. so its going to be a very staggered start.

But won't the testing help to ensure they are able to remain in school? Or am I missing something?

Nobody ever can explain it, it's very odd. If it was taken at birth though, then you'd probably feel differently and wouldn't give a fuck. I think adults going and volunteering to do it would probably feel weird. As you say though, if you do nothing wrong and don't intend doing, it really shouldn't make any difference to anybody, but you would at least know that if you ever did something wrong, then it'd be easier to track you down

You've already got the UK Gov't using laws for scenarios they weren't originally passed for, massive data leakages and general IT incompetence, not to mention what a future Gov't might end up doing with the DNA data (selling it on to insurance companies?). No way would I want any of that risk with DNA profiles. I'm not really that fussed about the libertarian / freedom angle, I simply don't trust the competence or scruples of any organisation. And with its poor track record in IT and data probably the Gov't least of all.

The testing is going to disrupt their timetable and lessons, the schools have had the kits since January, my point being they are back in for 2 weeks before Easter being even more pointless, they are just coming in to be tested, its going to be interesting to see how many parents and Student take it up, it is optional.

Let's put it this way, you can see one person in a park and share a sandwich sitting on a bench, but a teacher is allowed to see 30 kids in a classroom, so why can I not see 30 people in a park and have a mass picnic 🤷‍♂️

Just been informed Students are still on virtual learning upto 15th March why some staff at College set the Gym up for testing, it's a massive logistical excersise, 20 testing booths with 2 members of staff in each.

My feelings are the Government are sending the kids back to be tested, not for education purposes, that's quite clear, this morning they announced they want them to have 3 test in 10 days, which now makes education centres Covid test centres, don't forget centres have to set up their own testing centre on site, using facilities, that means a Gym, lecture/Drama theatre will close thus impacting on teaching.

I'm in work, I'm full-time, although im waiting for that clown Williamson to come up with a plan of how and when we process Student results/grades.

Everyone knows schools reopening has a risk of increasing infections, but the risk/impact is judged to be lower than the benefits of getting education up and running. You having a butty with your mates does not have the same benefits.

Ahhhh so you cant catch covid in a classroom, but you can easily catch it in a park 🤔

You do get the hypocrisy in all this ?

When the World Cup was in Germany I got into some silly bother because of a bellend (here).

I knew the routine, admit culpability, act contrite and slap on the wrists and dressing down from a sergeant (a woman, fucking massive, how she'd ever chased a suspect down without concussing herself...favvered Bella Emberg tho') and out in time for the night game (and was).

They took my DNA though, which I wasn't best pleased about...

First off accepting a caution is accepting a 'conviction' - which led to me having to have a letter to accompany my (then) blemished CRB (expunged now, didn't hinder me anyway as I'm great 😀)...

Anyhow I digress, a year or so later I'd been to Sankey's and had wandered around Ancoats/NQ for a while killing time before the first train and supping a couple of beers from a 24hr shop (it was summer and warmish and light already).

I went for a piss against a chain-link fence surrounding one of those waste ground car parks, I looked down and amongst the foliage at the base of the fence was a fucking claw hammer - covered in fresh blood and hair and now, my piss.

What to do? A potential serious assault or murder weapon drenched in my DNA and no nearby CCTV to exonerate me...

I genuinely thought of climbing over to get it and dispose of it in my still addled state.

The point of this is - tools, such as claw hammers or compulsory DNA registers are only as good as the folk using them.

Presume some truck driver had killed some brass and pissed off back to Tewkesbury or Turkey...

It'd have been me in the frame, off the radar for an hour or so from Sankey's chucking out 'til I bought the beers...

All it would have taken is a couple of lazy, thick, stupid coppers on the case and I'm an innocent citizen of Germany.

Who said that I know I did not. 
 

i said there was risk in both, the Govt said there is a risk of reopening schools but they think the benefit of reopening education is worth the risk.
