    If you give a baby the name 'Priti', you are gambling that your daughter is not going to be ugly!

    There are ladies on this forum too! (just in case any of the sisters are offended!).

    The trouble is, while I agree, if everyone was safe distancing, where's the harm? But the police may take a different view and the authorities don't want us to create our own 'workarounds' or us 'pushing the envelope'. They have presented their message in a black and white way and they want us to adopt it in a black and white way, not bending the rules. Don't get me wrong, I'm as frustrated as everyone else with these draconian measures.

    I had to go to the bank last week, Barclays and NatWest. Obviously I had to queue outside. While in each queue, I witnessed a gaggle of men, around 2 maybe 3, shaking the hand of someone in the queue. Nobody said anything, including me. If I had said something, I could end up having an argument or worse, which would ramp up the danger for us all who were in the queues. By the way, not sure if this is significant, but in both cases the men spoke in a foreign language.

    Well, if 'Mr Irving' has good reason to go garrity, he should have explained himself. Maybe then, we could have offered him sympathy.

    My comment was made a few weeks ago now and things have moved on since. Have my views changed? I will say that I am FULLY adhering to the current rules. However, my original comment centred around a speedway riders concern about how he was going to earn money, as I recall. I am still concerned about that for the self employed (which I am), for those who live hand to mouth, for those that don't 'fit' with the furlough scheme. For those who are company directors who pay themselves small salaries, which will mean they will be ineligible for anything. Bearing in mind the current speedway demographic, is mainly those who are retired with a fixed income, it's possible the 'how can I put food on the table' doesn't impact on them. And maybe, it is those people on this forum who are criticising (some in a childish fashion), peoples views and opinions, that don't agree with theirs.

    I refer you to the reply I gave Steve Irving (Is that really his name?).

    They may have signed rent contracts, which have to be honoured?

    Speedway In Cornwall ?

    I am happy to be 'shot down in flames' and was happy to accept, at nearly 62, my memory is starting to fail, however, below is an exert from from Eastern Daily Press dated 29th October, 2013: Tim East, county councillor for Costessey, said: “I’m not delighted that the project is not going forward because I am a supporter of speedway coming back to the city, but the showground was an inappropriate location. That is what has caused this scheme to fall by the wayside. “It’s sad, but it’s not a viable location, in the middle of potentially three and a half thousand houses. Any objector developing those house would have objected to it.”

    I think at one time showgrounds were 'out of town', but over the years they have been encroached by housing. Norwich tried about 10 years ago in their showground (Norfolk) and the locals wouldn't have it!

    Great WW2 aircraft, the Dakota or 'Dak' as it was known. Great transport aircraft and many still flying. The Lincoln Heritage Museum has a pristine example!
