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.

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? 

What.  Like we did all last year and like loads of other countries do?

Delighted to hear hq deviate from eradicate to live with.  There is hope that common sense might prevail

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

I think you'll find most so called anti-government rhetoric is focused on government-stupidity and government-selfishness. In recent times - under Brown, Bell and now Quayle - all too many govern

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

Best location for incoming flights, silly.

Like I said. It's not fair to give you false hope.

What difference would it have made?:whistling:

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

So why are the government bothering with genomics at all, and also bothering to ‘chase results up’? They must obviously think it’s worth doing, unlike yourself. If it’s worth doing according to the government, and we can get it done in 36 hours rather than weeks later, PLUS keep the work on the Island, I don’t get why you’re being so precious about this topic?

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 

God forbid that anyone should feel accountable or feel that an explanation may be due to those who are paying for this.

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.

Another good decision from Howie was to allow compassionate & contractual exemptions again from next Tuesday despite the protests of some Of pitchfork brigade like piebops

It's not the  location. This has happened to me for about 2 weeks.

Same as you, once signed in all ok.

Interesting posts Filippo. Your making a good time of it. I might shuffle down the shops for a pint of milk and a loaf of bread later, the highlight of my week.

Is there any plan to fix the server connection problem? I lost touch with the forum because of that, lately. I have various devices, and can't keep all them logged in to MF all time. I am in London at the moment; I had thought that my own location was the problem.

Who is responsible for these issues?

I'm not. With all due respect you keep bringing it up again. All I have done is re ask the question as, I have to be totally honest, I don't know the answer to

I bring it up because I’m asking the question MHKs and journalists should be doing, and also because it was in the news/at the briefing today so is relevantly current.  You keep constantly responding negatively to it for some unknown reason. I’m no scientist, but as I’ve stated, if the government are doing it, then presumably it’s worth doing in this instance. Yet again though, why use a Liverpool company and wait weeks for results when we have the expertise on island. I’d rather not keep hearing you say that you don’t know all the time- the repetition is boring and unproductive. Either discuss why we’re not using Dr Glover (I appreciate that you don’t know) or stop responding in your inane way, as you’re providing nothing.

My take is that if we knew all along that these cases were linked and not "unexplained",we could potentially have had a shorter circuit break?
