  1. Anyone know if Eavesway coaches are doing transfers for the 3 night cruise? My parents want to sail but only if they can travel down by coach.
  2. We all know that newspapers always tells the truth and never miss quote people to make the article more interesting. I still remember the Sun's front page which claimed "Freddie Starr ate my hamster"
  3. Not sure how you can claim the BBC is biased as they when back to interview Maureen, on her own, the day after the vox pop was aired
  4. Try asking Maureen Eames. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-england-south-yorkshire-54632619 Here is a link to her follow up interview: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-england-south-yorkshire-54632619
  5. Hi, I would post your question on the RCI forum as well as on here, if you want a quick answer.
  6. Stoke on Trent is piloting a test where you get your results in 20 minutes. https://www.stokesentinel.co.uk/news/stoke-on-trent-news/stoke-trent-chosen-pilot-super-4632889
  7. I hope you get to go but a shopping trip to NY for 1 or 3 days does not appeal
  8. Are these just the deaths that have occurred in hospital? The table that you posted in #239 only shows deaths from covid that occurred in hospital and does not take into account deaths of fit and healthy working age people that live in care homes because the have Down syndrome or Autism, for example.
  9. I would love to sail on the Odyssey but a 5 hour drive + overnight in a hotel + the cost to hire a hoist for 3 nights does not seem worth it to me. The 5 night is also out as my DS cannot fly.
  10. Hi, I think you have waited long enough. It's time to talk to Citizens Advice. (https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/about-us/northern-ireland/). Consider making a small claim against them (https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/law-and-courts/legal-system/small-claims/deciding-whether-to-make-a-small-claim/). I can only find a link for advise for England, sorry.
  11. Thank you for proving my prediction correct Also please remember typing sentences in capital letters ( or in your case part of a sentence) is classed as yelling. Which is against CC rules.
  12. You have a valid point but at least I'm willing to provide the website where these figures came from. So that they can be discussed by any poster who wants to, like yourself. compman9 never provides any evidence for the claims he/she makes which makes it harder for posters to determine the actual truth.
  13. Thank you for confirming that your figure of 400 is fictional. If your figure was actually real you would have no problem posting a link to the website you got your figure from. I could quote you the figures that appears on the Office of National Statistics website but you will claim that the figures do not differentiate between those that are fit and health and those that are not. From other posters here the website I use to keep me informed about Covid figures in England: https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/healthandsocialcare/conditionsanddiseases/articles/coronaviruscovid19roundup/2020-03-26#deaths. For those that do not want to click the link according to the ONS; England and Wales have had 5681 Covid deaths for under 65's. This figure does not include Scotland or Northern Ireland. Which is slightly more that the 400 that compman9 likes to post
  14. Agreed. Irresponsible scooter use should be stopped. Along with abuse and irresponsible actions of non wheelchair/scooter uses towards wheelchair/scooter use. I have lost count of the number of times I have had to break suddenly because someone thinks it's ok for them to cross in front of me.
  15. It did not feel wheelchair friendly after it's revamp. Before the revamp the wheelchair user could play golf and enter the library with only 1 carer. After the revamp the wheelchair user could not play golf, no lift up to the course. To enter the library the user needed 3 people, 1 to push the chair and 2 to hold the doors open. This situation may have changed since we were on the Indy. We did complain and received future cruise vouchers.
  16. How long do you expect them to stay indoors shielding? Also what is the cost to their mental health? People have committed suicide because they could not cope with being alone whilst in lockdown.
  17. I have no problem with Indy staying in the US. I'm like @little britain not a fan.
  18. We are like you. We are not booking anything until it is proven that cruising is safe again. We have too many family members in the high risk group to even consider cruising until it is safe again.
  19. I would like to agree with you but there will be people in the higher risk group that will book cruises. Because they believe they have a right to take a cruise, whenever they like, even if it's not safe for them to cruise.
  20. Age maybe a factor, at first. Only people under 70, for example, can cruise.
  21. How are the cruise line going to secure the tags? Another question is how long will it take for some teenagers to swap the tags round?
