    Defunct Tracks

    Yep, the old football ground further along the road became flats. The old speedway stadium became the new football ground recently opened..

    Oyster cards in London.

    Pretty sure it's £8.70 for zones 1-3 on the tube. Bus is same as you've put i think. Take advantage of the hopper fare on the buses aswell. As many as you need in 70 mins is the same price as one single fare. Drop me a line if you need anything else. Edit - it's £7.40 for the central zones, 1-2. Oh and obviously don't go buying an actual oystercard, just use contactless.
  3. Excellent news. I hope Mimmo and any others who were genuinely affected by this s_hithouse behaviour from management can at least enjoy their speedway now. Well done to everyone involved.

    2021 GP Series Dates

    That's simply not true. I think we get it that you don't like the Cardiff Gp and Cardiff itself for whatever reason, but to say it's been follow the leader since day one is guff.

    Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

    Curious to see how they are planning to ascertain whether someone has had it or not tho ? Is this not vaccine passports in reverse ? This is a personal trainer in Canada btw. Not a gym or anything like that.

    That pic is from the world cup here a few years back. But yeh, they did have 60k in a 130k stadium apparently.

    Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

    I think it's more to do with the logistical side of things. Staff being shifted all over the gaff is meaning that there are less numbers on the ground able to sign off on orders like a cto due to the original regs saying that the only ones who can sign off should be staff familiar with the patient. Someone covering as bank staff in a mh unit for instance could never sign off on this kinda thing as the current regs stand. Bank staff are covering loads of non covid/hot roles such as mh units, to free up more senior regular staff for the hot zones and to assist icu staff, so it's likely that a normal unit wouldn't even have two seniors familiar with a patient to sign off for forced medication. With the constant rotation of staff, i read it that it's probably more of an admittance that they know staff sickness and shift cover is going to be messed up for many many months yet, so giving the option for single authorisation for certain mh treatments is a better option. I'm by no means defending these clowns btw - i'd like to see them hang.

    A CTO is only actioned for a someone with mental health conditions who is already detained in the system under the mental health act. It's normally signed off by two people, but this is just changing it to one if there would be delay getting the second sign off. It's only for medication relevant to their disorder, not for vaccination or anything covid related.

    She certainly shouldn't have spoken as if it was wider than her hospital/trust. As my other post referred, it's more than possible that her kids icu facilities are full, as they are reasonably small, and in a bad area.

    The pizza thing has definitely been done.

    Good news he's negative and good luck with the scan etc on Monday

    Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

    Ah ok, yeh that's who i thought. She's likely got her knuckles rapped there as her wording of the situation could make it sound like it's a wider issue rather than specific to her hosp. She's at kings trust which has less than 20 kids icu facilities across two sites - and with kings being in a very diverse area sot to speak, and the other hospital covering a large area, they probably do have icu wards full of sick kids, some of those being covid. However, that other doc is at a specialist childrens hospital in Se1, with massive capacity, so whilst they are right to say they aren't overrun and it's not a wider issue, children don't get transferred there normally just for icu alone so they would generally only see the kids who are absolutely critical needing specialist intervention. The doc at Kings has previous as a bit of a protester as well, so it's not surprising she's got a link to the media to get her views out. Shame, as her point although locally is probably right, it's not necessarily an indicator of carnage everywhere.

    The annoying thing is the bloomin trusts have got such weak upper management that they are scared to throw open the doors to any press to actually show some sort of glimpse of what goes on inside, as they are worried of funding punishments and slaps on the wrist from above which could result in their own jobs being on the line. If anything, the graphic wording in the emails being sent out daily to staff is almost trying to tempt staff themselves to leak info to the press, which is what is happening in small doses as journos are queuing up for leaks - but without pictures etc, a section of the public still won't be convinced. Strange times.

    Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

    Was gonna ask the same. Hopefully he's had the results by now. My staff nurse sister has now tested positive presumably via my niece. Their tests they can take at home were backedup by an official one earlier. Results for her husband and kids to follow tomorrow. Any qualified nursing staff in the thames valley might wanna offer their services as the hourly rate they are offering due to staff shortages is absolutely insane now.
