I'm calling BS on that one.

Most normal folks without an axe to grind view a staycation as going somewhere in England, Wales and Scotland rather than abroad.

Like to hear your definition of a "proper holiday" as opposed to a "not proper holiday" or whatever as well....

I have no real axe to grind other than picking you up on your propensity to talk utter cr@p. However you seem to be quite obsessional in your clamoring to justify your claims about hotels. So now everything is a staycation and not, by your definition, an actual holiday even if someone has driven 200 miles to stay at the opposite end of the country where they usually live. So by that yardstick nobody is having a holiday this year so you can stick by your original doom prophesy. Because by your yardstick even if they stay in a hotel after the 17th May it’s not a holiday it’s a staycation as they still live within 400 or 500 miles of the hotel they’ve chosen.

America must be staycation capital of the world. Fly 1,000 miles from New York to Florida. It’s just a staycation not a holiday!

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

Oh dear, you've confused me with somebody else. At no time have I posted anything about hotels.

Never mind. Try again....

I wouldn't be too sure of that if I were you:

UK likely to give green light for travel to fewer than 10 EU countries

https://www.theguardian.com/business/2021/may/03/uk-likely-to-give-green-light-for-travel-to-fewer-than-10-eu-countries

There isn’t going to be a traffic light system for travel ex UK to anywhere. There is going to be a traffic light system for entry into the UK ( and a slightly differently calibrated set of lights for IOM if you’re coming to the IOM and have  been outside UK in the previous 14 days )

Jersey = using the tools available and communicating to the population how they are going to use them and why.

IOM = me, let's see what happens.  We are stubbornly going to stay away from lateral flow testing despite the UK using it as a significant part of its armoury against excessive undetected spread.

"

‘The approach taken by Jersey has been a balance of all risks so we do want to progress down the reconnection road – which, for an Island, invariably requires consideration of connectivity with outside the Island,’ he said.

‘But we want to do so safely so we are trying to put in as many safeguards as possible to permit measured reconnection, not just in the Island but with other countries too.’

Businesses are being encouraged to register for the testing scheme once it goes live.

‘The more [participants] there are, the better it is, not just from a public-health point of view but also from a business point of view,’ said Dr Muscat.

Chief Minister John Le Fondré said: ‘We have made good progress with the vaccination programme but this was never designed to be a standalone measure. The presence of variants of concern and their global reach remains under close observation.’"

Apparently overseas travel will come online sooner than the doom merchants are predicting if Uk government sources are to be believed 

A government source tells the Times that travellers should be patient for just a few more weeks. The paper says that while Gibraltar and Israel are set to be included on the short "green list" of countries due to be announced this week, the most popular destinations will follow soon.

The source says most of Europe, the Caribbean and the US are expected to feature on the list when it is updated in June.

Doesn't the legislation say you can leave England with 2 days and not require the tests. This is a complete shambles which the IOM Government should be addressing

So I've now managed to get UK Flap and Lace to confirm that I do not need to quarantine there and can travel through to IOM (Yay!) but they still insist that I must buy the two tests (Buh!) even after I point out to them that it makes no sense if I travel on and the test is required for UK isolating people only. They are adamant that this is the correct procedure and have now told me to contact Heathrow border control directly, offering to apologize if they tell me something different. Fun and games...

So basically what several on here have been saying.

Too slow, why not level 2.

To convoluted.

Not enough detail.

And yet the same few on here consistently deny that those are issues.

It was so easy to develop a clear and console strategy several weeks ago that would have seen us at level 2 now and boosted the economy.  They weren't brave or clever enough to do it and we are left in a stupid situation where despite relaxations at the borders there isn't actually any incentive for people to travel and spend money here.

I read hope they see sense and announce soon a full move to unrestricted British travel from 28th May so people can have confidence to get things booked.

There is no way they will have unrestricted travel until they can stop using the airport as a vaccination hub.

Lots of second jabs to administer there between the start of next week and the end of June.
