Hi. "By the way, who do you think are on the flights landing in the UK?"

Caller I imagine there's many Brits returning. But, whoever it is, (unless PAX in transfer), entry to the UK should be after 14 days Police controlled quarantine in Hotels around LHR/LGW. When quarantine capacity is full, Folks just can't return until the quarantine capacity allows it.  8)

That's the ticket ! ATB

Ah, follow the Thai method. Tell you own citizens to FO! Of course, the guidance has been crystal clear from day one. Stay home and self isolate. Now the numbers are reducing from repatriation flights, they are going to re-introduce quarantine.

An old Native American was the only member of the tribe that was allowed to name new babies.
One day a young brave asked him how he came up with the names.
He said, my son, when I see snow gently falling I will name the baby, Snow Gently Falling.
When I see a hawk flying high, I will name the baby Hawk Flying High.
But tell me Two Dogs Shagging, why do you ask?

"BANGKOK (Reuters) - Thailand on Saturday extended a ban on international passenger flights until the end of June, the country’s aviation regulator said, as new cases in the country dwindle. The Civil Aviation Authority’s ban extends a previous order that was set to run until the end of May."

Starting tomorrow, shopping malls can open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and the night curfew is shortened, running from 11 p.m to 4 a.m. from Sunday.

Shopping centers are allowed to open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily, while movie theaters, karaoke venues, and game arcades have to remain closed.

Beauty clinics can reopen for body treatments, except for facials, weight control, tattooing or piercing, bathing, and massages.

Essex girl in bed with her boyfriend says, 'How dare you call me a slapper, get out of my bed right now, and take your mates with you'

I was at Tesco this afternoon, when a lady dropped dead in front of me,
I felt really sorry for her - she had just bought a Bag for Life.

TW - fleshing that out a little - IF possible, start fixtures in September - polish off the last 9 games by Christmas, with Champs, Promo, Relegation the same.

Start a 19 game 2021 season on Jan 1 - neatly finished by May.
Everyone has a good rest and we wallop all comers in next years' Euro's.

OK - I'll go and lay down now   :o   ::)
