Travel companies say holiday bookings have "exploded" after the government announced current restrictions will be eased.

Ministers said from 6 July, blanket restrictions on non-essential overseas travel will be relaxed in the UK.

Holidaymakers will be allowed to travel to certain European countries without having to spend 14 days in quarantine upon their return.
Interesting how the Brexiteer masses can't wait to get away from from the UK. I'm off to the 'English Riviera' for my hols. What's wrong with these people ? We have the best coastline in the World.

Re: Coronavirus

Funny how Brexit Britain isn’t actually full of parochial little Englanders isn’t it. It’s almost as if most people understand the difference between enjoying good relations with our neighbours and allowing them to write laws for us.

Re: Coronavirus

It's kind of easy to explode from zero when prices are so low. The real comparison is to the same period last year.

It was just an observation Hugh on how fickle we all are. Also how being patriotic doesn't necessarily mean being right wing and/or a Brexiteer.

To be proudly British and proudly European is possible. I'm sure you'll agree. Together we're stronger, divided we're weakened. However as you say we'll move on, not necessarily for the better. Nighty night, and stay safe/alert

Everyone is entitled to go on holiday to the EU or outside the EU. Where people want to go on holiday, or don't want to go on holiday, is incredibly trivial to the response to coronavirus.

Many people will have lost money earlier in the year for booked holidays, been unable to work or spent months on reduced income on a furlough scheme. All of these people are entitled to the same right to travel worldwide as anyone else if restrictions are eased to allow it.

The threat from the virus doesn't care if you are a leaver or remainer, on the left or the right. And our response needs to reflect that.

Many on this forum wish to dismiss any negativity towards the Government response on that basis - and posts such as this are not helpful in that regard.

Re: Coronavirus

Met a fellow dog-walker this morning, and she’s an anaesthesiologist at a local hospital - she said yesterday was the first day since March they haven’t had a COVID-19 patient in ICU.

The city of Leicester may be facing a localised lockdown after a rise in coronavirus cases, Home Secretary Priti Patel has confirmed.
Speaking on the BBC's Andrew Marr Show, she said it was "correct" that the government was considering the move, reported in The Sunday Times.
About 25% of Leicester's 2,494 confirmed Covid-19 cases were reported in the two weeks before 16 June.
