It’s indeed a great shame, but now sadly a universal truth, that anyone posting a video against a Cross of St. George English flag backdrop is a thick as mince, ill-informed, inarticulate, no-mark. How regrettable that the flag of a once proud nation has been co-opted by the Z-listers.

Will that give the "clickity click" though? I'm very concerned about the loss of this heritage feature :lol:

We’re going to have the newest “heritage” railway in the world it seems. Out go the Victorian clickity click lines and down comes the Victorian signs too.

I am doing well tonight. Made 3 posts and got 3 confused emojis from TSOS. Full marks then.

Please stop it Meltdown Mary. Nobody wants to listen to your insane insecure posts about emojis for the 10th time this month. Nobody is biting.

It’s less than 45 a week. Many, if not the majority, are here for a day or two. A week at most.  Don’t confuse key workers fulfilling short term contracts who can come, work and self isolate in approved accommodation, without a 14 day self isolation, with people coming over for long term jobs who, mainly, have to do 14 days isolation before they start work.
