  1. He's good though! Well worth having a look at his feed - FakeyPepys (@Pepys_Diaries)
  2. Risk of catching CV-19 when carrying out/taking part in activities published by the Texan Medical Association Covid Task Force
  3. Designated pathways after a few pints in the local..
  4. It's a loan, not free money, and several clubs have already said they will not be applying for any of it.
  5. Dave Stokes, chairman of Leicestershire Police Federation, called for the government to provide more detail on what the public can and cannot do during the lockdown. "As we have seen over recent weeks and months, if the guidance and messaging from government is confusing for the public, then it will be almost impossible for our colleagues to police," he said. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-leicestershire-53236467
  6. Although racing at Leicester is still going ahead this evening despite the lockdown and the racecourse being in one of the suburbs subject to it. It will be interesting to see what happens with Leicester City's home match against Palace scheduled for Saturday.....
  7. Fev's latest statement is considerably more cautious than the one released a week ago https://www.featherstonerovers.co.uk/news/rovers-officials-attend-rfl-forum-QqbWb Rovers' priority absolutely remains on returning to the field and resuming the 2020 season, everyone at the Club will now look forward to July’s meeting where we hope we can continue to work together. However, recent events concerning NRL side Melbourne Storm and tennis star Novak Djokovic only highlight that the sport should only return when it is in the best possible position to ensure the safety of all players and staff. Rovers CEO Davide Longo said: “Although all Club officials are becoming frustrated with the current situation, it’s imperative that a potential return to play is done safely and all risks are managed through professional consultation and thorough planning. “The situation is extremely fluid at the moment and a few more weeks may allow for an improved position for Clubs with reduced measures in place and a return of supporters into stadiums.“
  8. So, Leicester is 'locked down' but today's horseracing from there can go ahead, even with the racetrack being in one of the suburbs covered by the restrictions...…. Also, some measure that should already be in place (eg laws on local lockdowns) and other half arrised measures relying on people doing the 'right thing' once again Taking about shops and other non-essential retail in the city, Mr Hancock told BBC Breakfast: "We'll be closing them by law and changing the law in the next day or two to put that into effect. "We're also not releasing the legal measures that lift the lockdown for the rest of the country." He said the law won't include banning people from travelling from Leicester to other nearby cities. "We are recommending against travel unless it's essential but we're not putting that in place in law at this stage - of course we will if we have to," he said. "Frankly, I've seen what people did during in the lockdown across the whole country and people in very large proportion followed the rules and I think that's what people will do in Leicester."
  9. The contractual changes that apply when accepting furlough are set out in the pro forma letter I linked to above. They only apply during the period of furlough and when that ends the contract reverts to the original terms. Have a read.
  10. It's 'recommended' to make essential journeys only not 'only allowed' . Time lost in spotting the outbreak and further days of dithering and still it seems they haven't decided the exact area to be covered! Compare this response to those seen recently in other countries to far smaller outbreaks.
  11. A pro forma furloughing 'amended contract' letter https://uk.practicallaw.thomsonreuters.com/w-024-6188?originationContext=document&transitionType=DocumentItem&contextData=(sc.Default)&firstPage=true&bhcp=1&view=hidealldraftingnotes
  12. That 2nd Iranian peak is real and potentially worse than the first - emphasising how important it is to very quickly react to any sign of a growth in cases
  13. That reminds me of a quote attributed to Gary Player/Arnold Palmer (and others)......
