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. 

Well for a start some more travel would help non governmental airport workers retain jobs, taxi drivers, car rental etc plus allow business travel.plus hotels would benefit.

Its not just Jersey, Guernsey have plans to move to similar model to Jersey.

As an experienced medic perhaps you could explain why there is a greater risk allowing non resident family visiting and isolating with 7 day test than a resident returning and doing the same thing?

in both cases they are staying with family.

45 people in a country of nearly 6 million. 

It’s hilarious watching the news tonight. They can’t even keep up with the testing now as they’ve spooked so many people with all this bullshit about rising levels and new city lockdowns. Its shambolic - the NHS can’t even cope with testing now never mind the empty beds it has right across the UK from people who aren’t seemingly even ill enough to be hospitalized in this “spiraling” crisis.

Greater risk comes from the numbers involved and I don't think residents should be doing this either outside of essential travel for things like hospital treatment under the circumstances. It's not going to help them if they have to shut down their entire economies again

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

 

 

Well I did say, "and I am not the only  one"

You know full well that cannabis can cause psychological problems. Maybe not for you, but the law isn't designed especially for you and your ilk, is it

Nice assumptions.

Alcohol frequently causes psychological problems. This isn't emergent science, cannabis does less harm than alcohol and nicotine.

My family are off to see parents/grandparents in a couple of weeks, not see them for 9 months. Ok people will say use Skype but for people that are used to seeing each other every 6 weeks or so it's not the same. 

They cant wait to go.

Er yes, I think you have not read this part of the thread.

Stop comparing cannabis with alcohol. It makes you look silly.

Cannabis is a headfucker. Not for everyone I agree. But a headfucker it is  for sure.

Looks like Watterson wants us To go to Ireland!! Tynwald question today 

What progress is being made in getting the Isle of Man added to the Irish Green list for travel?
Travellers entering Ireland are currently required to restrict their movements in line with Ireland’s official public health advice. A number of countries are exempt from this and appear on what is known as a Green List.
At the current time, the Isle of Man is not included on the list of these locations and Isle of Man residents travelling to Ireland are therefore required to observe Ireland’s restrictions to movement on arrival.
We understand that the list is reviewed fortnightly based on relevant advice. Officials from the Cabinet Office are engaged with the Irish Government to discuss the Isle of Man’s inclusion in future iterations of the Green List.

Yep. And that is no reason for legalising/decriminalising or whatever yet another headfucker.

Same answer as Lagman, but you dismissed that. If it’s one person, and they follow the rules, then obviously it is irrelevant if they’re a returning resident or a visiting relative. If the rules are ‘bent’ a bit then it’s more likely that locals will be exposed as a resident living alone is less likely to mix than visiting family. 
 

But the numbers are key.
