  1. I've been to a few Uni's. The undergrad experience is definitely different to the postgrad with the latter generally more intensive and geared on getting the (self directed) learning in and you out. 2 year courses may be the next big thing in undergrad courses as students become more cost focused.
  2. The failure of the UK to get their house in order is the root problem. If we are expecting them to start behaving sensibly then we are going to be waiting a long time. It's not the end of the world though.
  3. Fair point. Unless everyone who has it in the community is by some fluke asymptomatic it surely can't be at large?
  4. 7 days and a test is a small step forward. I don't think it is sustainable long term by virtue of it still requiring an isolation period or its cost to the traveller (basically a tax). I suspect we are totally beholden on the UK to get its shit together or the miracle jab to appear before there is any further change. I can't see that happening until well into next year
  5. The worst part is that it fuels hysteria. If, as he points out, it is isolated, under control, life going on as normal then why make such a huge song and dance? The truth is that he misses the lecturn. I sense he sees that as the place from where his honour from the Queen will originate.
  6. Fair to say then, if that is the case, the 7 days isolation then test will be a reasonable approach.
  7. Of course it could be a case whereby someone has been away, brought it back, developed symptoms during isolation and is in further homebound isolation? A return of the virus doesn't necessarily ewuate to a break of procedure
  8. I just saw the notification of the10am briefing. Perhaps either to clarify or ho back on tomorrow's adjustments or perhaps the 'Rona is back!
  9. It's a shame that the politicians are afraid to address this issue. They still see it as a USP or badge of honour. TBH it would have been safer all round to keep capital punishment on the statute books.
  10. The road speed should reflect the 'talent' required to pass a driving test which isn't that high. 60mph on stretches of the mountain is fine with a reduction for the trickier bits. As pointed out above during the lockdown speed restriction no accidents, now lots. It's patently obvious that derestriction of the road is unsafe.
  11. But we aren't ever going to get that. You can wake up here, a local average Joe possibly of limited life or work experience, decide to run for election and four weeks later on the back of less than 500 votes you are in a £50k plus job with further potential to run a department or the Island itself with absolutely no understanding of Government, economics or finance. And as we have seen when most realise their shortcomings or the enormity of the task involved they revert to micro politics concerning themselves with the antics if seagulls or nimby planning complainants. Food for thought: Ho
  12. Quine seems fairly sensible but wasb't that Zac dude, the one who used to plagiarise stuff, an airline pilot as well?
