Their grannie brings her car!!  There is a fifth school which is a special needs/disabled kids secondary and a stream of mini-buses transport them over a very wide area. That school was open during the lock-down as a "hub" apparently!

Here, in the Isle of Man .... residents are allowed off the island, but must self-isolate for 14 days on return.

This week we have seen one person jailed for 6 weeks .... Also a 64 year-old .... has been jailed for 4 weeks!

So, basically, you have your own miniature fascist state over there. Well done!

I'd never thought of Western Australia as a fascist state, but I expect the guilty parties in the IOM are glad they aren't there:

It may be Draconian but it is working.

Far better than a field of moronic teen and twenties having a Rave, leaving tonnes of litter and spoiling the environment for nearby residents.

Coupled with it being a Bank Holiday Weekend here in the UK which if people ignore the Covid precautions then I fully expect the Government to introduce fat stronger punitive fines than the 100 slap on the wrist.

Long term the denegration of society values we are seeing will quite possibly result in a change of Government actions.

In Asda this morning I counted 32 people (not counting children and staff) who were not wearing face-coverings and were not distancing. (Yes I know about exceptions, my cousin has COPD and wears a mask and so does a relative with severe learning difficulties). Their staff say nothing can be done.
There wasn't much sanitising being done either!! Is every supermarket the same?

Hello, hello, hello what's happened here, then? I thought this thread had been locked but now - hey presto - its unlocked.

I thought I understood why it had been locked (too political? though, how you isolate politics from anything these days is beyond me). Not just being awkward, though I know I have a PHD in it, but I'd really like to understand (for future reference) why its now unlocked???   ???
HELP!!!

Baptism nowhere to be found. Possibly in a nonconformist church near ALMONDBURY or HUDDERSFIELD.
