  • Quarantine - Why Would You ?
    by landlord-man
    I'm still amazed at the number of people returning from "red countries" seemingly paying £2,300 to stay locked in a hotel room for 11 nights - why would they?

    IF the Country I'd visited was, or moved to, a "red Country", I would be looking for a green or amber one which...

    They give 4 days notice of when Countries will be changing colour and it wasnt possible to leave because all transport had been suspended and there were no flights, buses or trains to the international airport and 1000 kilometers is a bit far to walk . And very quickly after the announcement that a...

    A) i wouldn't be in a red country to begin with - they dont change to red overnight, so always time to get out.

    B) As above, why would you stay somewhere without being able to get a vaccination

    Sorry, but only you to blame for not sorting it out 3, 6 or 12 months ago....

  • How to reduce energy bills by 25%
    by jpucng62
    I am one of the customers whose utility company has gone bust, so Im pretty sure my bills will be going up.

    BTW, when a company like British Gas takes on an account, they're allowed to recoup the cost of migration (a few hundred pounds per customer) in their tariffs over the next months (from every customer, not just the one's being migrated), so it's very lucrative for them and adds more cost to the consumer...

    The price of the raw materials have shot up and the consumer picks up the increased price.
    The question is, does the government intervene to subsidise the consumer or does it let the market operate freely.
    And if it does intervene, does it do it by running the utility companies or injecting...

    I am in a red Country myself and trying to get back to the U.K.
    The problem with your suggestion ; Being in a Red zone Country , you need to find a green/amber Country that will let you in.
    Some Green/Amber Countries do not allow tourists to enter/need to be fully vaccinated/need to...

    Much safer to get double vaccinated and stay at home. Save money to pay the gas bills.

    BBC reported the Health Minister saying .- 99% of covid deaths in the first 6 months of 2021 were persons who were not vaccinated.

    I completely agree.

    Problem is that no-one thought Bojo was a born again greenie when they voted for him. I believe he is getting his orders elsewhere than from the British electorate....
