And now parliament being deep cleaned as Sharma was at the despatch box with signs of covid19. Great idea wasn’t it?

There could have been dozens of 'super carrier' MPs there showing no symptoms. Opening parliament when the remote system of voting was working in the middle of a Pandemic with no testing in place is just lunacy.

It could also have been hayfever according to some




One of those carriers could be Barry Gardiner who left a socially distanced parliament to join a rabble-rousing crowd

You mean the peaceful protest in London about Police brutality towards minorities? At least it was outside so reducing the risk of viral transmission.

All the complaints about the quarantine restrictions being too harsh and "save our summer holiday" and the like. If there were no restrictions at all, does anyone here fancy at the moment getting in a plane with hundreds of strangers and breathing recycled air for several hours?

Not really, or even going to see anyone outside your household until you know you aren't infected.

Not at all, it's annoying though as my job relies on me being able to fly and so I'm unemployed for the foreseeable future. #sosad


PS The air on planes isn't recycled.

It is, not 100% but a lot of it is recirculated. They do have filters I know (though they are only as good as how often they are maintained).

But as your response suggests, it is irrelevant anyway because you could be infected long before the air gets to a filter/circulation unit

May I ask what you do that requires you to fly so you are unemployed now?

Initially I read that as
>checks flies<

He's a wedding photographer.


Which did cause a mental eyebrow rise
