No way! I even had both Covid jags. I don’t know what new variant l might get and bring back to the UK. Just not worth it this year. Stay at home, keep your family safe.
Had both vaccines, but still feel a bit cautious about travelling overseas. Maybe in about six months.
And sit on a burning hot beach wearing a sweaty, germ-ridden mask at all times, required by law? Na, mate.
Tenerife booked for November.
Yes, though we are restricted while many so-called sports, elite and political people can travel unrestricted.
No, not this year and maybe not even next year.
Of course. Viva Espana!
You could jet off to Spain right now if you wanted too. You'd have to quarantine there and when you came back.
Cabbies have blasted Edinburgh City Council after large plant beds installed outside a restaurant blocked a busy taxi rank
Bet they wouldn't put them in a cycle lane though.
It’s a vicious circle really. If hospitality can’t open up properly then there will be no customers for taxis either. Surely if taxi ranks are being used by restaurants there must be replacement ranks? If we want Edinburgh’s economy to open up, the council has to be able to encourage all businesses to flourish.
They look great, well done. I’m sure there are alternative locations for taxis.

What about not triple parking at Waverley Steps? Then maybe I would listen or care. But you guys slow down an already congested and narrow road.
Good to see. It’s not as if taxi drivers pay to sit on ranks or anything.
The streets belong to the drinkers, now.
Suppose they can always use the illegal rank at the Balmoral, top of Waverley Steps again. Oh, wait, they are already!
Yet another example of Edinburgh’s failing council. Where does a hard-up council get money for this tosh?
Clowncil will remove the planters and replace with a secure bike shed.
Appeal judges upheld a jail sentence for an East Lothian woman who swindled £55,000 in child tax credit payments
Can we see people who hurt and abuse children locked up also? That would be great.
Does that same rule apply to politicians who are committing fraud right in front of our eyes - Tories more than anyone? I think not! I’m not condoning benefit fraud but it’s minuscule compared to fraud by the upper classes and politicians.
She deliberately falsified claim forms over several years, fraudulently claiming tax payers money. In no way do I feel in the slightest bit sorry for her. I do, however, feel for her children and hope that they all remain together and are being cared for by people with better morals!
The debate is not does she deserve to be punished, but is jailing the lady the correct punishment? I am struggling to see the benefit.
I feel sorry for the kids, but if you just get a slap on the wrist, then how is that a deterrent? That £50k could have gone to someone who really needed it, £50k of tax payers money that good honest people paid for.
No different than Boris and the rest of the Tories, but they do it by the billions and get away with it. We don’t hear many saying anything about that.
Try jailing swindling politicians before you go after a mother of six who I imagine was still living hand to mouth even with her wee bit extra benefits.
The outrage over a petty benefit fraud compared to the lack of outrage at the £200+billion of corporation fraud is astounding.
