Re: The NHS COVID-19 app

I've no doubt top dogs and underlings are all working 24/7 (some more than others) ........ That is what the PM and his Cabinet have incessantly and repetitiously told us - or at least have done once they got round to belatedly realising there was a real threat from CV-19. It would make you wonder ...

Thank you.

Great site - I wish you every success in the endeavour.

Didn't know Minard Road was named after a remote village on the shores of Loch Fyne - so learned something today.

Pandemic Lockdown in November 2020

Our PM has announced a new lockdown is essential. Many will argue it is too late and without the PM acknowledging that he and his appointed Cabinet declined to follow SAGE's solid evidence put to HMG in September. There is a harsh reality - we are confronted by a pernicious virus and we need to to t...

Re: The NHS COVID-19 app

More incompetency of the worst kind. Dido Harding as the person responsible for the management of this system, has had to acknowledge that its parameters were set incorrectly. This error went undetected until the last week or so. Consequently too few people were issued with notifications of contact ...

Re: Freeview reception problems?

I have experienced similar pixilation difficulties with "live" viewing and then found the recorded version to be perfectly clear. I am not at all sure why the equipment - and I am using different devices connected to different aerials - produce such varied qualities. Signal strength may be...

Track and Trace - Where is the UK Now?

It is important that the country understands the importance of track and trace. Not as a solution but as a hugely important factor in mitigating the spread of infection. An interesting summary of events is to be found here: https://members.tortoisemedia.com/2020/10/05/201005-test-and-trace-slow-news...

Yes, but has anyone tried booking a blood test recently?

If you are due to have a blood test done, unless it is just ...

Re: The NHS COVID-19 app

On two iPhone 7Plus devices located in our home my BH and I received a notification at around 22:00 on our Home screens. The notification was fleeting and seemed to be informing or requesting of us a confirmation of a contact and seeking further info on duration and location. After a few seconds bei...

Interesting material - all of it. So if the stuff I'm wading through is not directly related to the submissions as described in my earlier post, there is an awful lot of it. "the LPA are not required to publish statements but they must be available to view should someone wish to see them."...

Re: The NHS COVID-19 app

Simply unbelievable. We thought "Yes, Prime Minister" had taught us all we had to know about HMG cock-ups. How naïve. How little did we but know. From Stuart's same link at The Register : It added: "Of these, over 75 per cent (11,968) relate to cases that should have been reported bet...

Re: 254 new homes for Lower Sydenham decision no 6

A lot of interesting comments. I pass the site frequently by car - is the land accessible or is it fenced off and thereby prevents access to the land by the public? If it is fenced off what does the principle of Metropolitan Open Land (MOL) infer or grant in terms of access to the land? In law, it w...
