    So do I. Should be lower than that.

    RIP Olle Nygren

    Sad to hear of his passing, condolences to Linda. I went to many of his schools in the 90s progressing from his bikes to when I bought my own and progressed to STR and league riding - he used my photo for his promo leaflets. Great character, loved fried chicken, a drink or two and the odd swear word! Such a talented racer across many disciplines.

    European Union - In Or Out?

    The government do not routinely give out commodity codes to businesses as they should declare their goods under the code given in the tariff - have you asked for a ruling because you're not sure what code to declare?

    European Union - In Or Out?

    My response was solely about lorry drivers coming into the UK.

    European Union - In Or Out?

    And you asked if the same thing would happen inwards to the UK. Doh!

    European Union - In Or Out?

    I don't see where this is biased - certainly not on the scale of commercial news sites/companies. It references the Covid tests, the pictures says it''s from December and the article says the vast majority of drivers have the right documents and are ok? It's merely reporting the £32k fines from 113 cases. It's a topical issue. Are you sure you are not biased towards the BBC?

    Such a shame. Obviously it wouldn't have been kept since 2017, not something described as a stadium - a fence on pallets maybe. I can only hope they do return in 2022.

    European Union - In Or Out?

    Nope, our border controls are weaker in that respect. Businesses don't have to declare goods until after they are imported in the majority of cases. Inspections of lorries are very low.

    Broke my arm when in goal and a waterlogged leather hit my forearm - they scored as well
  10. This is true but also makes me think of every other virus/illness that is transmitted by people - how many of us may have had multiple infections (if we were tested) dealt with by our bodies and we have shown no symptoms? Is this the way viruses actually spread and therefore whether you become ill is not about exposure but simply your body's reaction to it?
  11. I think we need to look at this pneumonia thing - it seems to cause 1000s of deaths every year, perhaps we need to put people into tiers to get this under control?
  12. I think this is what the labour party were suggesting before the last election. I think it works in other places.
  13. From a higher rate of inflation to a lower one maybe but still inflated. A friends mother was terminally ill and died of cancer recently but contracted Covid in hospital so is counted in the headline figure, ridiculous.
  14. I mean it's plainly trying to inflate the impact of coronavirus and they even say that in the small print!
  15. The scaremongering has worked though. Propaganda, enabled further by the rise of social media is a scourge of society. We see it in so much of our lives these days. Outright lies become twisted into truths, spin is king and I for one try to see through it and look at evidence. I still remember Trump saying his swearing i speech or whatever it was being the best attended in history - despite photos to the contrary, or the £350million in additional funding we'll have for the NHS after Brexit, or almost every Daily Mail front page. Jeez, how anyone can include all deaths within a coronavirus headline is beyond me.
