    Yes, we'll have to agree to disagree. I remain convinced that the 12-week decision was taken on an on balance assessment rather than a hunch or a guess. If decisions of this magnitude are taken on...

    My version is that the JCVI thought long and hard before issuing its advice. It's not the sort of thing that's done lightly. Yes, production and supply is the major issue. Importation is only a...

    It's not a 'gamble,' it's more a calculated risk. This isn't something entered into lightly.

    Yes, I suppose the 'government official' with a track record of speaking truth to power and who has been open about the risks involved from the outset has become a lackey of the state overnight.

    I think it's PRECISELY the question people should be asking. There are many households in this country where one person will be higher (often significantly so) up the scale for vaccination than...

    I think this is right. If all that was needed to increase vaccination rates in say London for example is to provide more vaccines then there would be no need to reduce supply to the North-East if...

    Yes, we've been washing everything thoroughly that comes through the door. And anything that doesn't look like it needs opening urgently - basically anything that doesn't have NHS on it - isn't...

    Definitely struck me that way - especially as it's not something mandatory or scheduled but an add-on offer. BTW shielding letter came this morning. Date given is Feb 21st but that's going to be...

    Haven't had my letter yet StarBright but got a text last Monday from the council saying to expect it. Text also said council are offering free home fire safety checks which I thought was at odds with...

    I know Iceland have recently discontinued some items in their Gino D'Acampo range. I use them a lot as it's easier to get a delivery slot there than the bigger supermarkets and also easier at short...

    You credit the government with a foresight that's been lacking hitherto. If they'd been actively planning to exploit what you - IMO - rightly call their Brexit ineptitude I doubt even they would be...

    While undoubtedly they will try to squeeze as much political capital as possible from it I don't think it can be called a stunt. You're right that the temperature means distribution is going to be...

    If you're nearly 65 then ESA and assessment rules will apply until you're 66 surely as that is now the retirement age? I had my re-assessment last November and haven't heard anything since then. I'll...

    Just an update on my post of 22/9 re bowel test. Got the all clear this morning. Re-do in two years. Worth all the embarrassment of doing to get peace of mind.

    Regarding entrance/exit my wife said she left via a side exit. I've voluntarily waited in the car park when going for blood tests as there are three practices in the centre so it can get pretty busy...
