  1. I contacted Department of Starship / Enterprise on Friday, said i was a self employed cleaner, with no work, and how do i go about claiming the £3,000 self employed allowance / grant, and i was told "you come into the category of "essential services / Key worker " therefore you are not entitled to the grant. A bit like an insurance policy really, "looking for a "get out" clause. The Isle of man "Where you Can " / cant.
  2. This is probably were get-out-clauses come into effect.
  3. I am wondering if the Manx Goverment have a strategy in place, and wondering what is may be. The social distancing i believe is more to do with the Viral Load ie.( 5 persons with the virus, giving it to one person at the same time ) , rather than the spread of it. Maybe, us not getting the virus on the island could come back and haunt us, the reason being, if everywhere else gets it, and we don`t, then we don`t get any immunity to it, we could therefore be at risk for a very long time to come. May be a lock down, then sit and wait for a week or two, and see what happens, when we will hopefully have our own testing in place. We then pull in cars at random at the grandstand and do compulsory testing for both positive tests, and testing for ammunity, the results would then reveal the % of the population that have either had the virus, or are immune to it, we then open up for 4 weeks, then go into lock down again, then repeat the tests, then repeat the process again, when we get to 90% of the population have immune to it, we then go back to a normal society, however the elderly would have to wait for a vaccine, which could be 18 months way.

  8. Australian F1, Fears over Corona Virus. https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2020/mar/11/australian-grand-prix-three-f1-team-members-placed-in-isolation-over-coronavirus-fears The potential threat from the coronavirus spreading due to F1 was also causing disquiet among health service workers in Melbourne. “I was surprised that the Victorian government has decided to stage the Grand Prix,” said Melbourne-based GP, Dr Mariam Tokhi. “I’m not privy to the economic calculations, but I am worried that they are putting my community at risk by going ahead. And we health-workers will have to deal with the escalation of infections. Australia has 112 cases of the coronavirus and three people have died from the disease here. The country has banned the arrival of all Italian nationals as of 6pm on Wednesday. Amid calls for the race to be cancelled, the words “STOP F1” were written in the skies above Sydney as concerns over the influx of people and a mass gathering might have in spreading the virus.
  9. Looks like a Darlek to me, so no.
