    Growing up near Ashbourne and being a Potter I should be revelling in the Derby Shit Show, but I'm really really not. I don't see a quick way out of this, but I hope I get proved wrong!

    I don't know, I missed a week, and suddenly we were off on our travels again (Raven?)

    Fond memories of West Beers there, good times.

    Yes, very civilized pub and excellent Scotch eggs. It must be 10 years since we were there?

    No Rams???

    Surely the world would be a better place if all Rams were cordoned off?

    It had to be a officially administered PCR test, not the 15 min lateral flow test. And you get a certificate.

    Also this isn't for the UK (That joy is yet to come for the return journey!). These requirements are set by the airline, the destination country, and, in this case, the intermediate country since she is flying Qatar via Qatar.

    Do the travel tests require you to do it in person and have your ID verified and have the swab done properly, or am I being hopelessly naive?

    Yes, Mrs Sifta is flying to take care of her parents on Friday, had to upload passport photocopy to Boots website, and take it with her to the test. The 48 hour turnaround, and requirement of having the test within 72 hours of landing (Not departing), makes it a very small window of testing. If she was Antipodean, I don't think its even possible.

    you would only ever hear good things about Hitler, Stalin or Thatcher

    This should be in the epic WTF thread!!

    As a republican whose family were miners in the '80s I'm no great fan of Thatcher but I do have some sense of perspective for gods sake. This stinks of some look at me desperate attention seeker flopping his dick on the table shouting look at me I'm on the right side of history!

    Thatcher (and then Heseltine and Major), put my brother out of a job, but I wasn't amongst millions of Brits who woke up one morning wondering where the fuck he was, never to see him again!!
