I also see the pubs industry are moaning about the new rules, well they have no one but themselves to blame. by sel...

Its mis-reading of the data by the Daily Fail. that's from an official statement from Isabel Oliver, Director of the National Infection Service at Public Health England. https://twitter.com/PHE_uk/status/1329470252120502272/photo/1 The daily mail for some reason wishes to put the uk in total lockdow...

Re: Big Brother Watching

Lakenheath also tweeted about testing drone killers for any that infringe their airspace. Civilian Drones must stay below 400ft and within sight of the operator. Military ones can...
