How do you reach that conclusion?

Testing yourself twice a week throughout the summer fulfils no useful purpose other than brainwashed neurosis.

I’ll set up a freepost address for Tsunami.  :D

I really can’t understand the BBC saying that the requirement for four PCR tests (£100 each) per person will add “up to £600 to a holiday for a family of four”.

Is the BBC thick?  It’ll cost £400 per person, making an extra £1,600 for four!

The issue isn't just the cost.

PCR tests have to be done within 72 hours of travel, but realistically you don't get the results for 24-36 hours so you only have a few hours of validity in practice. If a flight is moved or delayed, which happens a lot currently, then you're screwed and need to start all over.

There are also very few places that actually do private PCR tests that are acceptable to airlines and national governments, which means you need to travel somewhere for that, probably during the working week if you were planning to travel at a weekend. Then some national governments additionally insisted on a laminar flow test within 4 hours of departure, which again means more expense and only the larger airports do this on-site, so it makes departure from some regional airports essentially impossible. 

Quite aside from the outrageous cost of these tests, it's absolutely ridiculous to be requiring a test upon both departure and arrival. This is before we even get into what was the actual point of vaccinating everyone.

Finally, there will be very few countries on the so-called green list anyway, and not really the most common holiday destination. So that'll also mean quarantining on return for most destinations.

So even though BoJo will claim to have restarted foreign travel, it will basically remain almost impossible for all but the most determined and wealthy. Yet more lies from the consummate liar. 

It's time people started waking up and pushing back against this nonsense.

Whether one agrees with it or not that is the direction of travel.

What's puzzling is why for instance, Labour, who have been virulently against the Tories 'selling off the NHS' for years are not only quiet about it now but they've been facilitating it by voting with the Government on the Coronavirus Act, the enabling legislation.

Labour have been pathetic in their opposition to the most incompetent and authoritarian regimes in centuries

It seems that the proposals for holiday tests are the same as now, a PCR test

within 72 hours of departure

within 72 hours prior to return

on day two of return

on day eight of return.

Boots and others offer travel PCR tests, aware of the time constraints, at about £100 per test.

The Government are actively creating cover stories for side effects of the jabs, blaming them on Covid-19 itself.

It's about the jab, it's always been about the jab.
