Really? You think anyone wants to be cramped into plane any time soon. Playing Russian roulette breathing the same air as the person forced into the tiny seat next to you.

I would be as happy to do this as I was before the virus, I want to go on lots of holidays....and very soon.

The new machine they found looks like it's working a treat.

This is the most hilarious thing I've seen in days. We actually printed this out, laminated it and put it on the door to the containment lab that the coronavirus testing is being carried out in. I'm tempted to call the ABI 7500 machine we're using the "Covidometer 3000" (currently called Mike-or-Rona) and give it a name-badge. Epic.

ManxForums is a nice pleasant place.

Don't take any notice of those people on Twitter, although they are all actually here too, but just won't admit it (I know you know)

Well you'd better get used to sitting in the sand in Port Erin, or taking a visit to see the Laxey Wheel (that's in Laxey) or slurping an ice cream in Peel

Apart from Dandara back to work !

Now now,the fat man said it was the medical profession that did it,they sat around and thought about the construction industry. Which when medical staff get really busy,they can't help their minds wandering and thinking of plumbers etc.

Yes. Trapeze artists, uranium miners and tea-pickers are allowed to resume work but only during the hours of darkness and if they wrap their entire body in cling-film. Howard Quayle told me this personally.

Same are the old rules but you can go out longer.  I think.

But they're going to be published at mid-day, because the Council of Ministers only wrote them yesterday - according to Manx Radio.
