  1. It shouldn’t work but on the sites I’ve had issues with it has worked, I can only assume the software automatically omits the first number.
  2. It’s about the same weight as a tube of toothpaste which in 5 separate packages really isn’t that impressive.
  3. I’m with Sure and I haven’t had any problems with verification texts, I use the UK prefix +44, so it looks something like (+44)076242*****. Ive been told many a time to swap out the zero for the +44 but this format has always worked for me.
  4. The risk of a second wave? All it takes is one person within a public venue such as a pub to be asymptomatic and the whole rollercoaster starts off again, good luck trying to do any contract tracing with a load of pissheads.
  5. If he’s told people he’s self isolating then that is then their choice wether to collect things or not. If he hasn’t said anything then it’s irresponsible and could’ve been treated similar to a HIV case, if you don’t warn people that you might carry the diesase then it can be treated as GBH.
  6. I don’t know all the facts because they haven’t been published, but I’m fairly certain there’s more to this story than what’s been published. I don’t expect we’ll hear any more about it until the gentleman in question is released though. If you want to question intelligence then perhaps direct that towards the herds of people that were down the pub at the weekend, who’ve seemingly forgotten all about this horrible virus.
  7. Man is told to not leave his home for 14 days. He needs to clear his home of possessions in order to move in the near future, he uses his time at home to advertise the goods online, ensuring their is a safe method of collection, complies with social distancing measures (refusing to shake hands) and I assume cleans items before collection.
  8. I can only assume there is more to the story than what’s been initially reported. Unless he was specifically told he cannot sell or remove items from his home I cannot possibly see how this has stood up?
  9. Plenty of people were selling items during the period of lockdown, I thought providing social distancing was adhered to it was acceptable? How’s buying a second hand item any different than using a shopping trolley that other people have handled? 6 weeks prison is madness, he’s at a higher risk of possibly infecting people by being moved between police/court/prison than staying in his own home.
  10. What happened to the young driver who hit and killed a cyclist on Poortown Road? Did she get sentenced in the end? Last I remember reading is she pleaded guilty, can’t ever remember seeing an update after that?
  11. I’ve just posted this in another thread so I shall repost here : Looking at it I’d say it’s been thought with buses in mind as the majority of them turn left towards town and a cycle lane was simply a token gesture. Buses have always struggled getting passed other HGVs waiting to go down Bray Hill/Turning right, quite often scrubbing the kerb and still very nearly clashing mirrors, I doubt buses alone would have been a good enough reason to go meddling. Ironically because they’ve now narrowed one lane to widen the other it’s just moved the problem, now HGVs turning left from Ballanard Rd heading towards the grandstand have a nice little challenge instead, hopefully they’ve trimmed the trees and hedges along the cemetery wall to at least remove part of the problem. For the first new week this will cause chaos and I expect many people will ignore it, but eventually people will adapt and overcome.

People will adapt and overcome as with everything in life.
  13. But he’s in the public eye (or ears) as a presenter on our national radio station, at any other time of year it would have ruffled a few feathers but during the BLM movement it’s highly insensitive at best. My own workplace has a social media clause, that because I’m employed by the company my views are said to therefore represent the company, I would imagine this in the small print of the majority of people’s contracts, there isn’t such a thing as free speech unless you're self employed.
  14. Same reason I know what Stu Peters looks like even though I’ve never met him in person? Majority of the radio station websites that I listen to has a little biography section on the presenters, I quite like putting a face to a name/voice, I’m sure many others are the same.
