There must be loads of empty industrial estate units on the Island. This location just seems so stupid, I really don't understand why they make these decisions. Plans, 3D mockups, timber framed walls and plasterboard, probably electrics. Insane. 

Church Halls and Villa Marinas.

Wait until you see the Chester Street Shoprite/Lyptons

This is surely a willy waving epsiode, with the eyes of the World (supposedly) on David and Howard, they had to spend taxpayers money to show them in the very best light. There is probably something in this and it may well be for the best. We shall see. Provided the cost of converting these areas is made public. And converting them back, although I suppose the Airport check-in is mostly done online these days,

OK. For what it's worth I'm going to try and explain why genomics is important in a ssRNA virus epidemic. No doubt it will end up being recited badly at a briefing, but, well, whatever. You read it he

The (small) irony in this is that for the last two weeks I've been trying to get a piece of plasterboard  2m x1m to cover up an old doorway and I can't go and buy it and even if I could, I couldn't have anyone in the house to skim it for me after. (skimming is not one of my skills).

And yet...

Plus the Ramsey Hub!! Just seen UK using a cinema, just a few tables, chairs and laptops basically and off we go!  Just can’t understand the cost and why we couldn’t just put a few tables & chairs in airport foyer?

You don’t understand why they make these decisions because you are not part of the decision making process where the pros and cons of each potential location is discussed and the best option chosen.

There is a bit more to it than just saying “ Hey there’s an empty industrial estate unit over there with cheap rental let’s use that”

I guess that after almost a year of doing fuck all, Ann Reynolds just had to get in on the act, somehow.

Not very busy at the moment I would have thought.... Govt owned - so extra rental costs, ample car parking, and good public transport links.

Bullshit. You tell me why that is the 'best' location? I've done some work in logistics and it isn't.

Well, just wait until the massive queues arrive out of nowhere. But she will have a solution... maybe:

I’ve already said that if you’re  not part of the decision making process and don’t have access to the merits or otherwise of each location you can’t determine the ‘best’ location’ You need access to all the relevant information.

So I’m afraid I can’t tell you why that this is the ‘best’ location.

But I’d be interested to know how you have come to the conclusion that the airport is not the best location,given your work in  logistics

Shame that these cases are obviously from weeks ago. If only we knew someone who had a quick and local turnaround, instead of relying on email ‘chase ups’...

What difference would it have made?:whistling:

I mean tangible difference. Something we could see, feel ot hear

At least Australia isn't afraid to be open and honest with their population. 

Their Chief Medical Officer has openly said it is very unlikely their borders will be 'open before 2022... even after the majority of the population get the jab. 

https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2021/jan/19/reopening-australias-border-will-be-one-of-the-last-things-to-change-says-chief-medical-officer

 

It's not fair giving desperate people false hope that the borders are going to magically open. 

 

Why do some MHKs think we have some magic power to be able to let people in and not be put straight back in lockdown?

But the rest of the world reuse buildings and put tables in them.

Explain more because I really don't.get it?

Parking, disability access, bus route, way in and way out, toilets, roof.

That's it
