What's the likelihood of going on holiday next year? UK or abroad?

 

I know people don't know for sure but thoughts?

I've been this year. Three times to Spain. A lot of the restrictions were fear based not legal.  I intend to go back probably March time if not sooner. You might be better looking at an airbnb, rather than a hotel

Covid-19: Concern at 'unprecedented' infection level in England
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-55462701

 

no need to touch the link - you know the tedious narrative within but such headlines were widely predicted for this week following a nearly 20% ramping up in testing last week compared to the previous 7 days . See the data . 
Pathetic .

My sister lives in Menorca. She tells me that life is going on pretty much as normal there. It's a lovely place to go but I'll have to get my passport renewed. I'm told that it is not an easy thing to do these days.

Just been on Aagirfans Blog  https://aanirfan.blogspot.com/2020/

 

"Most Europeans won't get vaccinated 

 
Support for getting vaccinated in Europe is dropping rapidly since October 
 
In Bulgaria only 15% plan to take it 
 
In Poland less than 40% plan to take it 
 
In France only 41% plan to take it 
 
In a very strongly government trusting places such as Sweden, still only 67% plan to take it
 
 

 

It seems (obviously) that vaccine uptake is not what the media is projecting.

Vaccine rejection is on the increase and long ago reached a tipping point! 

Bear in mind that the accuracy of polls may aslo be manipulated and overstated!

I spent Christmas over at my dear mum and dad's house for Christmas, so I've been exposed to some of the TV that they watch.

 

I reiterate once again, the 'pandemic' only exists in the media, not in 'real life'.

 

The news broadcasts simply regurgitate 'numbers and figures' which look horrifying at first, but there is no further investigation as to what they 'all mean'.

 

'Cases' and 'deaths' figures with no context or deeper investigation. A new 'mutant strain' with no explanation of how this has been established.

 

I know this is all bollocks, but I really had to bite my lip and keep quiet because I already upset my mum when I told her in a passing conversation that I "wouldn't be queuing up to take the vaccine", she snapped and said to me that I should do so.

 

Holiday companies discretely urging people to book their holidays for next year, as if things will be just fine. I noticed that RyanAir were pretty fucking blatant about this, with their "jab and go" slogan. How underhand is that?

 

These holiday companies, tour and flight operators are all very keen to take your money, knowing full well what is in store in the near future, no 'jab', no flight, no holiday.

 

And the "Birds Of A Feather" Christmas special on ITV, I'm sorry but while it was admittedly humourous at times, it was also thinly veiled government propaganda, with regards to washing your hands and keeping your distance.

 

Basically anything recorded for TV in the last six months was painful to watch. How are contestants on something like 'Pointless' or any other TV quiz show meant to 'confer' with a bloody great plastic screen between them?

 

I did enjoy spending time with my mum and dad, but by jove, I'm almost glad to be back at home now, away from the 'normies'.

 

I did have one parting shot though, as my mum moaned about the quality of TV programming at Christmas, I did state "you always have a choice", with that choice being to turn off the TV and do something else instead.

I have family in Spain but need to plan around the school holidays. The flight prices absolutely take the piss.

Interesting. I have stayed in Cala'n Forcat three times myself, nice place. I would definitely rather be there right now.

1. How many of these doctors have seen an actual war zone?

2. How many of these calls are frivolous?

3. Ramping up the fear. The NHS knows full well that such a state of alert is unwarranted but it gives them licence to prioritize Covid over real life-threatening conditions.

4. Thus depriving seriously ill people of treatment, which saves money.

 

Given the MSM reporting, this is how I imagine a local NHS Walk-in Centre is during a war zone lull.

I don't think there's any difference to passports? What's changed?

I honestly don't know. I was told it's taking an age to get a new passport processed and that the passport office is discouraging applications 'because of Covid'.

the mrs renewed her passport at the post office on dec 1st, it came through on dec 14th, only 3 days longer than mine took, which i did in august 2019

They are discouraging new applications but for no good reason. 

New passport in record time:

This is also odd.

 

Because of coronavirus (COVID-19), you cannot book an appointment at a passport office. Passport offices and the premium and fast track services are closed.

Phone the Passport Adviceline to apply for a passport urgently.
