    There's a Facebook site called Bring back Southampton Speedway, run by a supporters group who have ambitions of bringing back speedway to Southampton. Not much information about how or where this may happen however.

    Do you mean Tyburn Gallows who I believe was as undertaker. He used to tell people he was a former Hangman's Apprentice. A real character.

    Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

    Won't account for all of them, but no daily death figures reported by NI between 24th and 28th Dec, or Scotland between 25th and 28th Dec.

    Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

    I think you are right. Two weeks ago we were hoping our area would go down to tier 1 from tier 2. Now we find ourselves in tier 4 even though our rate of infection is and always has been less than the national average.

    The new regulations on support bubbles for Tier 2 (which I assume Swindon is) introduced on Dec 2 allows an individual, under certain circumstances, to form a bubble with another household of any size providing that household is not part of another bubble, so two seperate couples from different houses could not meet, but if three were from a single household and the other from another then yes they could under some circumstances.

    Certainly pubs have a duty to inforce the rules which apply to them. Big fines if they don't. Our local authority has written to all the pubs explaining the rules, so no excuses. As for bubbles, that's more for the individuals. The landlords can't be held responsible if people lie to him unless he knows they don't meet the criteria, in which case he should refuse to serve them. Otherwise if found out the individuals face a fine. I assume the same rules apply to cafes which are a single household/bubble indoors and a maximum of six from mixed households outdoors per table.

    The earliest speedway meeting 1928

    The meeting was also heavily advertised in the Daily Mirror the week leading up to the meeting. If you have access to the British Newspaper Archive website they also published some terrific photos after the event showing both singles and sidecar action during the day.

    Has anyone been anywhere yet

    Remember seeing them win the Amateur Cup at Wembley in 1961 against West Auckland Town in front of 100,000 spectators. Great side back then.

    Unusual drinks in pubs

    When I was a student in the early 70's we use to go to a night club where the house drink was whisky mixed with fresh orange juice. Must have tasted alright as I drank loads of it. Have never seen anybody order one in a pub since.

    Sorry, didn't check the amounts bought. The reason for buying so many of the Oxford vaccine, is nobody knows yet, presuming it works, if a single dose is enough or whether a booster will be needed later. They have also bought ànother vaccine which is at a similar stage of development as an alternative to the Oxford one, ie whichever works best, assuming either do. There was an article on the BBC website earlier today but don't know if it's still there.

    Brilliant piece of recycling. The guy should pattent that design. He'd make a fortune. I'm sure David Attenborough and the rest of the save the planet brigade will be well impressed.

    Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

    Nobody said anything about multi vaccines. A couple being tested involve different methods of stimulating antibodies to recognise and attack the virus proteins. Others are to lessen the symptoms and recovery time for the most serious cases.

    Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

    They are different vaccines in development which, if they are successful, will perform different functions.

    Corona virus

    Think masks would be a absolute requirement to combat the additional transmission risk in talking above the noise of the bikes. Also I note that one of the suggestions for outdoor music concerts is payment for entry through E Tickets so there is a contact for you in case of somebody attending unknowingly having the virus. Could be that you may need to sign in at the stadium as is required for pubs.
