I lived in a single wide for 5 years. Good times.
Yeah well that's just, like, your opinion, man.

Our summer holidays were always in a caravan, usually to the NSW south coast. Lots of fishing...

That is quite disappointing, since although it may just be coincidence, the roll out of this and other vaccines might be delayed.

So the UK is now in Lockdown 2.0: The Rule Of Six. I must admit, the sequel isn't as good as the original.

Anyway. You're now only allowed to meet in groups of up to six people, but only where that group is from a maximum of two different households, unless that meeting place is a workplace (of course), or...
The Guardian wrote:Grouse shooting and hunting with guns in England are among outdoor activities exempted from the government’s “rule of six” coronavirus regulations.

Confirmation that the latest health protection regulations permit groups of up to 30 to take part in any “sports gathering” was published only minutes before coming into force.

According to one report, an internal government row over whether bloodsports should be exempted was alleged to have delayed their release.

Like its previous versions, the Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (No. 2) (England) (Amendment) (No. 4) Regulations 2020, was produced too late for most people to read it before they were subject to its legally enforceable rules...

Seven deaths related to COVID-19 have now been linked to an Aug. 7 wedding and reception in the Millinocket area, and the state’s top infectious disease official expressed concern Tuesday that Maine’s coronavirus numbers are worsening.

Have they carried out scientific tests? Of course not. Just the same old guff.

From the ridiculous to the sublime:

Two families of four chatting in the street would break England’s Covid laws, Patel says
Home secretary says she would report neighbours to police if she saw them flout ‘rule of six’

Two families of four stopping for a chat in the street would contravene England’s “rule of six” coronavirus restrictions and constitute mingling, the home secretary has said.

“You have got to put this in the context of coronavirus and keeping distance, wearing masks,” Priti Patel told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme. “The rule of six is about making sure that people are being conscientious and not putting other people’s health at risk.”

She said she would report neighbours or any other group that she saw flouting the new restrictions banning social gatherings of more than six people, which came into place in England on Monday. People face fines of up to £3,200 if they break the new rule, which follows an increase in coronavirus cases.

Patel told Sky News: “I’m rarely at home but if I saw something that I thought was inappropriate then, quite frankly, I would call the police. It’s not dobbing in neighbours, it’s all about us taking personal responsibility.”

On Monday, the policing minister, Kit Malthouse, encouraged people to report their neighbours for not complying with the rule of six.
Nice neighbours.

He is doing a great job and another large contract for extra testing will be going to one of his cronies. Got to keep on milking this cow.

UK Covid testing system has 'huge problems', admits Boris Johnson
As country hits highest daily number of cases since May, PM warns death rate will also rise

Boris Johnson has said the Covid-19 testing system currently “has huge problems” during a sometimes downbeat appearance before an influential committee of MPs, as new figures showed nearly 4,000 UK cases in the 24 hours up to Wednesday morning, the highest daily total since early May.

With the number of people admitted to hospital in England with coronavirus also reaching the highest level since the start of July, Johnson warned that the Covid death rate was likely to start rising in the coming weeks.

Appearing before the Commons liaison committee, Johnson conceded that there was currently not enough testing capacity, and “many people are deeply frustrated”. He additionally warned that the much-touted plan for a return to more normality through the mass use of new, near-instant tests was “a long way off”.
