England dropping restrictions – how must others feel? Has this really been properly thought about?

England dropping restrictions – how must others feel? Has this really been properly thought about?

Government advice is that covid passes should be required for “large events”. What is a large event? Surely any event which pushes people together tightly is going to be risky?

Is the decision of the British government to relax restrictions a selfish act which has little regard for the needs of others or does it herald the way for the rest of the world?

It’s official – restrictions to be relaxed from 19th July

It’s official – restrictions to be relaxed from 19th July

It would be nice to be able to go and out believe you are safe but your safety will shortly be your own responsibility. No good relying on government any more

At the point of writing the precise relaxations are not yet known but we expect to hear from the Prime Minister shortly following the announcement from the Health Secretary in Parliament. By the time you read this probably the announcements will have been made.
Poll finds hospitality industry expects covid passports to be introduced. What really are the issues?

Poll finds hospitality industry expects covid passports to be introduced. What really are the issues?

What is “covid safe”? Is there a percentage which you can put on “safety” and how will the high risk members of society decide to handle it?

It is perhaps something of a surprise but a new poll finds that hospitality businesses are anticipating that vaccination passports will be required for pubs and restaurants once they have fully opened up.
Vaccination passports – now the Prime Minster says they are under consideration. What groups of people may be pressing for these?

Vaccination passports – now the Prime Minster says they are under consideration. What groups of people may be pressing for these?

People are going to want to feel safe before their confidence in returning to normal life is going to be regained

Now that the Prime Minister has outlined the road map out of covid-19 restrictions, the debate has again turned to the issue of vaccination passports which we have mentioned a number of times now.

Vaccination passport – this is as inevitable as the day is long!

Vaccination passport – this is as inevitable as the day is long!

It will be essential for people in many different areas of life to be able to prove that they have been vaccinated

The question of a vaccination passport is hotting up and the Health Secretary Matt Hancock has admitted on television that the matter is being discussed with other countries which are likely to require such a passport to allow people to go there.
Can employers insist that their employees are vaccinated against Covid-19 or indeed their customers?

Can employers insist that their employees are vaccinated against Covid-19 or indeed their customers?

It will definitely become “those who have and those who haven’t”. And it will become as divisive as everything else during this pandemic

The question as to whether any party has a right to insist that any other party must be vaccinated has been raised before and as yet there are no definitive answers – indeed there are various possibilities.
It’s Christmas – time of good cheer - hopefully!

It’s Christmas – time of good cheer - hopefully!

For each of us perhaps Christmas means something different but in the UK it is important.

I remember many years ago in the nineties when I was in the USA doing my flight training, it was November and one day I went into a big shopping mall – I think it was in Memphis. Everywhere hanging from the ceiling were great big posters with the words “Christmas is all about giving”.
Why an immunity certificate will be essential for clubs and societies as well as the hospitality industry

Why an immunity certificate will be essential for clubs and societies as well as the hospitality industry

In order to be reintegrated we shall all need to prove we have taken the necessary steps to protect ourselves and those around us

It does appear that we are approaching a crisis point with regard to coronavirus cases. After having another complete lockdown, it does appear as if that did not do the trick beyond a certain levelling off of cases but now it is over, it looks like the transmission of Covid-19 has gone into overdrive
Even how we say our final goodbyes has been changed by Covid-19

Even how we say our final goodbyes has been changed by Covid-19

Our lives change in ways we would not normally have envisaged

I am not sure what inspired me to start writing daily news blogs just after the lockdown had started. I suppose it was because I saw that the changes in our lives were going to be so startling that people needed to take stock and think about them, especially as the populace seemed to be rushing around like headless chickens with no very specific aim in mind
Fraternal societies and other “talk groups” – how are they affected by the pandemic?

Fraternal societies and other “talk groups” – how are they affected by the pandemic?

A short look at a huge group which has had little or no mention so far.

We have talked a great deal about damage to business, the economy, charities, the arts, the church and many others. But there is a sector of our society about which little has been said and which deserves a mention. Fraternal societies and groups such as Round Table,
