Can you guys start a separate thread titled "Jersey is ace - oh no it isn't" and leave this one to a discussion on IOM and the coronavirus?

...and I so wanted a long illustrious career at the DHSC   I run my own company so my involvement with the DHSC to set up and keep the COVID19 lab running wasn't exactly in the professional caree

I'll put a big disclaimer here that I'm not the person who decides who gets tested and when.  Saying that, I am a scientist who understands that if you test someone on the day they arrive and the

. Why does anyone on here who wants no changes slag off the other islands because they are trying something different which is successful?

I'm not seeing anyone do that, they're just not agreeing with you.

You don't find many people who abuse alcohol down the docks selling their ass to a sailor for 10 quid for their next hit, plenty that started on cannabis and moved on to something stronger do...…………….

Doesnt seem to have made the news but scotland have announced today that there are only 45 people in the country in hospital being treated for covid. This is down from yesterdays figure of 267 after it was admitted there were people in hospital for other ailments but at some point had tested positive for covid during their stay.

45 people in a country of nearly 6 million.

Spoke to my friend in St. Helier only last week....

The town & Island is thriving...

How does he know? If it’s just from seeing people out and about in shops, pubs, restaurants etc, well that’s what we have here - views you repeatedly disregard as being irrelevant to the real economy. 
 

I’m still waiting for someone to explain why adopting Jersey’s testing protocol here will boost our economic outlook.

Not sure a guy who runs a tyre company is the person to take advice from in a pandemic.

bit of a silly comparison when cannabis is the least dangerous.

I see where you are coming from but I have enjoyed alcohol for many years and apart from the very occasional hangover it has never had any adverse affects on me or my family.

As a young fella I smoked the occasional joint, and have never felt so messed up each time. I soon gave that up. It is dangerous and nasty as far as I am concerned and I am not the only one. Alcohol has severe side effects for many -  socially and physically, but that is not a reason to illegalise it or, legalise some other drug such as cannabis.

(I don't want to get into an argument/debate, just pointing out that in context it is not a silly comparison)

A sample size of one. Surely a valuable and significant study.
