        the Guards aren’t hanging around there for nothing.

        that said, I pass by Mounty Square Park twice a day and if the sun is out it’s always heaving with people with no sign of the Guards. So who knows.

          exactly – who knows?
          so maybe just hold off on the judgements until you do know.

            I see and pass enough people acting the maggot, I’ve got plenty of judgement for all and some spare too.

            It’s really not so bad, once you get past the probing stage scottser. Promise.

    They look well spaced to me, think this is a bit over the top. People need to get out and feel some sun and if living in the city it might be their only place.

      And yet, there are videos flying around of full on street parties in the suburbs where the gaurds just drive in and out again.

    Yet the gang of 15 junkies at Christchurch can congregate and sell their wares without being touched.

    and yet for weeks now we’ve somehow managed to turn a completely blind eye to the daily fully loaded flights into LHR

    I guess sitting in a packed B737 is far safer than sitting on your own in a park on a nice sunny day

        my apologies planespotter ;) you are correct of course, the Aer Lingus fleet is Airbus not Boeing

        you seem to know your stuff so tell me, can you squeeze more Covid infected people onto an Airbus A321 or a Boeing 737?

        would the virus spread better or worse I wonder?

      I don’t understand how all those strict things were imposed but they still let people come in on ferries and planes, without enforcing quarantine. It appears to me to be like locking the front door but leaving the back door open.
