  1. I can’t say that many teachers would be in favour of corporal punishment, even if it was permitted!
  2. IOM today (front page preview) are posting that the long-awaited report into losses in the Manx film industry is out. Does anyone have a link please?
  3. FWIW, I didn’t watch the video - the comments from the crazies underneath were enough...
  4. Do you have inside information, Ooooh? I do now think we are in the same situation as the UK, i.e. let it rip through the younger/unvaxxed population and taking a gamble that it won’t mutate and come back and bite them on the arse.
  5. a) like most people, I’d like to be prepared if it was all going to kick off again, especially as I’m in a job in which close contact can’t be avoided, and I have a very frail parent to care for, and b) I’m nosey 🤓. Thanks for asking!
  6. I’d love to know which, if any, of these cases are the result of a repeat test after initially testing negative then experiencing Covid symptoms...?
  7. Also, If you have any meds, your NHS number should be on the prescription slip from the chemist which accompanies them.
  8. Looks like mini Gymbabe will be living at home for the foreseeable!
  9. @rachomics, I feel an awful lot more confident, ‘going forward’, with you as part of the EAG rather than without. Hopefully, with the conditions set that you mention, the new CoMin will listen! Good luck.
  10. Elsa is obviously out for what she can get, as I got the same message and I’m very definitely heterosexual! I wonder if anyone will click the link...
  11. I’m more of the opinion that the gradual opening of schools is to observe and assess if there is any effect in letting a reduced number of staff and children mix in close quarters, before opening to all pupils and staff. If there were to be a school-based outbreak, it would be more manageable to contact trace etc.

    Manx Care

    Apple, is there really no hope that Manx Care will succeed?
  13. Me too! Don’t know whether I’m more excited about the jab, or the fact I get to visit the Big Smoke...
  14. I’m not sure what the ‘Peel Pilot’ was meant to achieve on the ground? Despite the surgery staff being ever-helpful and accommodating, where possible, especially with my elderly father’s care, I’d still like to be able to get an appointment to see a doctor sooner than is possible at present. Even a telephone appointment involves a substantial wait. At the same time, colleagues I work with, from different areas of the Island, don’t seem to have this problem.
