Iím also not principled. I said in my very first post on the subject and reiterated several times, that if I had to vaccinate the kids for foreign I, reluctantly, would. I donít think itís necessary or right, but if thatís the rules say be it. My point is that there is no evidence that , that should be a requirement.

I'm struggling to read that as a coherent sentence to be honest, and you accuse me of being on the booze!

???

Evidence has been there to slap you over the face with inevitability before so I'm not sure your benchmark of Covid denial serves wider public health.

At least a Dubai holiday is the price of your principles and not Benidorm I suppose. God bless capitalism - the easiest way to control the prolateriat is by their pocket.
Well, proletariat aside, Iím just looking at places to go in October. Benidorm as nice as Iím sure it is, in October wonít be as good.

I could easily swap Dubai for Tenerife (or another Canary Island), or Gambia. I didnít go Far East as I donít want a long flight.

So you see my decisions are purely weather and flight time based. Does that not fit with your Marxist ideology?

Re: Coronavirus

Lovely tourist ideas, little coherent thought as to dealing with Coronavirus. Unsurprising.

I'll stick to TripAdvisor for tourism.

Point taken, One finger typing with auto correct has never been a skill I’ve possessed.

I have corrected the statement below

Re: Coronavirus

I've no interest in your ability to go back and produce a coherent sentence upon being challenged to do so.

It's telling that it appears to be your strongest point in the debate. Well, above naming tourist locations you'd vaccinate your kids to go to.

If I genuinely felt strongly about not having my children vaccinated, giving up foreign holidays would be a price I'd be willing to pay.

However, if I didn't and just wanted to sound controversial on an internet forum then my so called vaccination principles would be out the window and running down the road the moment it got in the way of a couple of weeks fun in the sun - because after all, why should I let MY children stop ME from having MY holiday.

Don't know why but I'm typing this and a French sounding name keeps drifting through my mind

Re: Coronavirus

We have cautiously booked our first big work meeting for the end of September - the first time I have seen my boss in real life in 18 months as he is based in Germany.

Never thought I would miss work travel but I am really looking forward to this one!

Probably Germany at this point with an outside chance of Sweden instead. Either works for me, I like both!

For information, if you use the NHS App, your COVID inoculations are now recorded on there.

Home Screen, then chose "View your GP health record", then select "Immunisations", and this comes up.
