I was actually trying to be funny

Nick Knight - easy!

14 million vaccinations so far - great effort

The R number has come down but that is to be expected as we are in lockdown but at what cost to to people's livelihood? But it had to be done i suppose .

Be interesting to know what proportion of the workforce is working including home work

Must dash another Qatar going over!

Don't give up the day job. No it was Laxman Sivaramakrishnan not Nick Knight (long live Google).

How many THY machines have you seen so far today? One airline that seems to still be operating a lot of flights regardless of CV-19. I was talking to a very helpful young man at Sky earlier in the week who was working from home. He finds it quite relaxing as you do not have all the buzz going on around you like in a call centre.

Can’t talk for your “sky” man but what i do know is the effect home working has had on our business, all my colleagues universally hate home working, they miss the buzz of working with colleagues, miss the creativity and general discussions that lighten the day. I’m home based but hardly work from home, usually I’d be on a plane or in the car going to meetings...zoom or teams cannot replace human face to face interaction.

Now all you oldies have been stabbed can I have my life back please. If we remain in lockdown I don’t understand the reason to be vaccinated.

It’s going to be a tough year for unemployment

They say here don't bother your GP about it , when it's your turn you'll have it , surgery's around here are doing it alphabetically and only over 70s at the moment , so might be last on the list for Williams 😊

Way more than the media would have you believe, and actually out at work there are probably more people working than at home
all public services,s hops (even none essential as most now have all staff on site running click/collect operations) on line retail (very busy sector) and many many more

Please tell me this is not a serious question!! :Wow:
If you can keep your head whilst all around are losing theirs, you have probably completely misread the situation!!

If we are to lead reasonably normal lives again at some point, we need to be vaccinated on a regular basis until deemed ok! No one wants to be in lockdown for ever but do we have a choice at the moment!

No we do not have a choice. Clearly we have someone who is resistant to change, however no flights and not spending hours driving around help with the climate change.

Being suggested that everyone may not be vaccinated until September and restrictions may be in place for the rest of the year. Just wish people would accept that we are all trying to defeat the virus, or are there dissenters only interested in me, me :ninja:

I think it is ok to question lockdown especially in the light of the vaccines. Until recently lockdown was the only weapon we had against Covid ( and it is a blunt instrument) but people have to go to work to keep the lights on. I don't think it adds anything to brand anyone who asks the question about lockdown as selfish or somehow subversive. We can't stay indoors for ever.

Changed my opinion of the six Nations - really looking forward to the Wales vs Scotland match which just got underway.

If they are claiming 80%+, they must have worked a fair bit through Thomas, but i thought Williams would count for more than 20%! :halo: :whistle: :thumbs:

What a match!

Normally if England are not playing I support Wales ( basically because of the great team from the 1970s) but Scotland came so close. I think the tap tackle should be outlawed as it is basically a last resort after a lack of pace or position, the defender is basically deliberately going to ground in order to make the tap - therefore playing from the ground.

Edit : James Botham , how about that and the Welsh Right wing - what a great young player where did he come from ?

Better mention something on topic - over half a million jabs given today - amazing.

The government are saying if you think you have been missed then you are "urged" to get in touch.

If you are 65+ you don’t need to wait for the letter/ text. You can go on the website and book a jab from tomorrow. I know this works, as I have just booked my 2 slots.
