Starting to look good for summer tube challenges. Struggling to remember what a tube train looks like.
The only thing I worry about is that if all lockdown restrictions are lifted in June, people are going to take that as a green light to go out and do anything they want, without taking into account that the virus will still be around.

And yes, this is a Corona-type post, but I feel it needs pointing out to people that just because the government say you CAN do something, it doesn't mean that you SHOULD. And the vaccine is designed purely to prevent people developing severe symptoms, and needing to go into hospital. It doesn;t make you immune from contracting the disease.

Anyway, that's all I wanted to say on the matter. Hopefully, people will be sensible and still take necessary precautions come June and July.

There is a difference between discussing FACTS about Covid-19 and spouting baseless conspiracy theories and outright falsehoods about it.

The "rule" I instigated is to do with the spreading of disinformation, not talking about it at all. We can't go through the rest of our lives never talking about it. It's the content of what is being said that is the issue.

I'm not really in the mood to argue about this in this thread, to be honest.

Suffice it to say that lots of people know the government are lying about lots of things, and know that they are under pressure to ease lockdown as soon as possible. I'm sure a good proportion of the general public don't need you to tell them that.

Anyway, back on topic ...

I think it is best to err on the side of caution until we have the facts. Making predictions for so far ahead in the future in the current climate is bound to end in tragedy.

You can ride on the tube now stop being so worried. You should be more worried about the amount of black stuff you have to pick out of your nose after a full network.

Than a c word which your not allowed to mention.

Im going to organise a tube olynpics if tangy dont.

Too early to say, really. But looks promising. I wouldn't be against holding these slightly later than usual in the year (Aug / Sep, maybe) as they have indicated we will be non-distanced and maskless by then...
