Our main downfall will generally come from people bringing the virus in from outside of the UK, seeing as some countries are still in a right state and out of control

As I may have mentioned before...... in January we were that country. The Alpha variant originating in Kent led to our infection rate soaring, causing a second wave, which we 'exported' all round Europe
There is no point us, or any other country pointing the finger. We're all in this together.

When I've been out on the roads I have seen people from all "communities" not wearing seatbelts, usng mobile phones and doing other dangerous things.
In my experience, drivers of white vans with the name of some builders on the side

General / Forum Etiquette - Replying to Posts

This is an important message for all posters on these Forums.

We want to make these Forums a friendly, welcoming and open place for people to discuss bikes, biking and bike related issues.

Discussions of political topics are allowed, however, please keep them to separate threads as much as possible. If a bike related topic starts getting political, we may curtail the discussion or split it off into a thread of its own to keep the main topic from being swamped.

We appreciate that feelings can run high on some issues, however before you respond to a comment which you don't like or don't agree with, we would be grateful if you would pause for a moment, take a step back and consider whether "popping off" at someone else is going to add anything positive to the discussion.

There is no problem with you disagreeing with someone, but while "I don't think you're correct because..." is acceptable "you're an idiot" is not.

Personal attacks, insults, bullying or discriminatory language etc will not be tolerated and posts may be edited or removed at the Moderators' discretion.

Violations of these rules or other disruptive behaviour may result in a member's posting privileges being temporarily restricted.

Continued violations or other unacceptable behaviour may result in a member being permanantly banned.

Please note that if you have an issue with a poster or a post, use the "Report to Moderator" link at the bottom right hand corner of each post, do not post comments in the thread or call out other people's actions.

Moderator decisions are final and are not open to discussion.

There will ALWAYS be a risk of new outbreaks, this is one virus that is not going away for a very long time. But surely being on a small island like ours, and with the undoubtedly fantastic vaccine programme that we had the privilege to be a part of, does it not make total sense to want to "keep it at bay" as much as possible?

We HAD that opportunity over a year ago!

We have *repeatedly* had opportunities to keep it at bay, unfortunately some people were more concerned about their "freedoms" (or their profits!) and made decisions that have been derided as hindsight, often by the people who couldn't or wouldn't make the hard decisions.

There are countries which are CRYING OUT for the vaccines which have been hogged by the rich countries who were patting themselves on the back for getting their orders in first and buying up huge stocks (more than their people could ever need).

This contributes to them being in a "right state and out of control".

I have heard the "seat belt" one on the radio too.  :rolleyes And I have heard it repeated loads of times from people repeating it as though it was their own.

I don't listen to the radio. Neither have I heard anyone else using that analogy.

Its apt that you should use the seatbelt metaphor because the same communities that we are referring to who are refusing the jab are also the same ones who repeatedly flout the seatbelt laws.

When I've been out on the roads I have seen people from all "communities" not wearing seatbelts, usng mobile phones and doing other dangerous things.

Please stop implying that only people from a particular area or a specific ethic origin or any other discriminatory references are responsible for this, because that is not the case and I will not engage in any further discussions of such topics.

Apologies, photos now attached.


Given the amount of recent work on it I’d be looking for 1800 quid.

Dazza, can't give a 100% yes at the moment, still awaiting a date for my first leg op and it could be tomorrow or in 10 weeks time. Will need to let you know closer to the date.
