    The UK government do not seem to have the knack of explaining things, but their policy is very wise.

    By focussing the vaccinations on the people most at risk from complications (only a small percentage), they are reducing the number of people needing ICU treatment at every wave of the virus. This is what REALLY saves lives.

    Covid, along with other viruses are here with us to stay, so the faster that we develop natural immunity in a safe environment the better.
    The situations leading up to 2020 have been brewing for years and covid simply broke the camels back. We have learnt a lot during the last 6 months.
    Some of the changes may be with us to stay. Since March, our youngest daughter who suffers terribly from colds and flue has not had a single cold. Therefore it would make sense for all of us to wear masks on crowded public transport during the cold and flue periods permanently, possibly 7 to 10 and 4 to 7. Once people got the hang of it and saw the advantages, they would just accept it as the norm. Likewise, at the start of any epidemic, people could be asked to wear masks in crowded shops. These few small precautions could PREVENT a repeat of 2020 by nipping it in the bud.

    Few people know that last March was the first time that the UK met air pollution standards. Having office workers permanently working from home for PART of the week could do a lot to prevent air pollution and prevent the spread of colds and flue. It would also cut the need for expanding public transport infrastructure. Last year, London Underground had to replace and add more than 100 trains at a cost of 7.6 million pounds EACH. Fortunately their Siemens inverter motors, along with regenerative braking have almost halved their running costs and cut all that black dust from the brakes from making everything filthy.

    The public really do need to be educated on how to improve our lifestyle and remain healthy. It is not rocket science, but a basic understanding of physics and biology would certainly help. :)

    'Foreign' travel is not for me
    I'd rather stay within the U.K. there are plenty of places I'd like to see:-
    'Beyond the wall;
    'In the Valleys - and Western Montains;
    Across the water to Celtic shores,
    And even down South - where the Ley lines lay
