Pretty sure if it was an issue for a private business to figure out they would have put it somewhere near the airport museum and private jet centre so runway one side and main road the other.

The other bits really aren't that hard to figure out with modern technology and access controls to a building, but we are way off topic.

Was just highlighted as another example of bloat and vanity projects.

250k just to design it ffs. A firestation for an airport on flat land, that needs to be the same as thousands of other airport fire stations. 

£250k !!

I would risk a bet that 250k could modernise the existing one to an acceptable standard or indeed extend it to what is required but as we know we need people spending cash to make them feel good at their jobs. The new terminal will be next trust me ..

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

Just need to move it to somewhere that's not regularly fogbound!

Not saying the £250k fee is needed.

 

But DOI trying to cut costs always makes me nervous. 

Look what they came up with when they bought a cheaper diesel train.

Roughly

10 in Douglas

4 in Ramsey

3 in peel

1 in laxey

1 in Kirk Michael

4 at new station by Sefton express

4 at airport

Plus cars, incident units etc.

So roughly one for every 3,200 people 

5 Douglas and 3 Ramsey. Do you want to recalculate using real numbers?

Latest statistics from ONS show only c8000 of total deaths were in those aged under 64

There were a total of 7,961 deaths of people aged 20 to 64 years old, between 9 March and 28 December last year.

Two thirds were men, of which the majority were in low-skilled jobs, working in care, leisure and service occupations.
 

Also two thirds of all deaths in care homes.

A year ago 1 person dying of Covid made headline news. Certainly 50 or 100. But now only 8000 or so, under 64 and it's just another update.

And the over 65s don't really matter because they're going to die sometime soonish anyway, well before the under 64s

We've become hardened to the situation so quickly.

I really don't understand your repetitive use of the age aspect. You're just rolling out old news, for what purpose? We're all aware by now of the risks and to whom, and your philosophy behind it as a reason to open things up. It's a bore yessir, we already know...

It's not the dying that's the issue, it's the people not dying, but taking a while to get better.

Selections from a Telegraph article today, about Ealing Hospital, "where people in their 30s, 40s and 50s are fighting for their lives.".. It's probably behind a paywall, so I have selected a couple of relevant bits.

"A 56-year-old teacher, Cook tested positive two weeks ago. She felt a little unwell, she says, then “boom, the next thing you know I’m at death's door, rushed in, collapsed, couldn’t breathe”. Cook has now been on oxygen for ten days"

“At the minute we have a particularly young group of patients in,” she says. “Many of our patients on the very sick ward are now between the ages of 40 and seventy."

And the vast majority of those c8000 had underlying health conditions.

Another £7m cost of latest lockdown so c£20m in total. Should be a lot more but they are paying peanuts to workers whilst they continue on full pay & lots aren’t happy about it

Eugenics again yeah?

Is it not the case that these people can be shielded now?

We know so much more.

We have the vaccine, the PPE, the knowledge.

Why are the lions share of the working population & our youth being disadvantaged?
