    Australian and UK Covid Responses

    There were some incidents where people were fined for being outside of an area in local lockdown (unless you worked for the Government) but, generally speaking, there wasn't a great deal of enforcement.

    I have my 2nd AZ one next week. That will be 10 weeks since the 1st.

    Australian and UK Covid Responses

    I don't know why they ever promoted some people getting their 2nd jabs over others getting their 1st. I understand how vulnerable groups are classified but wouldn't it be better for everyone to be 80% immune than some 97% and others 0% when you're dealing with a transmissible virus? 57M vaccinations have been given, 20M of that is 2nd doses. The vast majority of the country could have had one by now.

    Australian and UK Covid Responses

    The Government were petitioned as early as 9th April to suspend incoming flights from India, they didn't do so until 23rd April. Local lockdowns have proven ineffective as people travel outside of their area for work and, some people, leisure. Last year when Liverpool was in Tier 2 and Manchester Tier 3, the trains were full of people coming to Liverpool to shop and socialise. I would imagine even the Government know this so reintroduction of local lockdowns isn't the answer. Targeted vaccinations would be better however those areas with high instances of this variant seem to be amongst the lowest when it comes to uptake.
  5. Is Perth a dangerous city? Have a look at the police figures https://www.police.wa.gov.au/Crime/CrimeStatistics#/ YTD 3,400 sexual offences, 17,500 assaults, 3,000+ cases threatening behaviour, 14,000 drug offences....... it goes on.
  6. If we’re just talking Manchester City Centre, there are multiple museums, multiple galleries, multiple theatres, multiple libraries (inc. Gothic), football tours, a cultural quarter, Cathedral, Salford Quays, Albert Square, multiple gardens, a myriad of pubs, breweries, cafes and restaurants (casual to Michelin star). If you want to drive for half an hour, you can do the Peak District National Park, the Yorkshire Dales National Park, the countryside Cheshire and South Manchester offers, Chester, Liverpool, Derbyshire. The list goes on. But, you’re right, there’s no man-made beach with novelty shops. Sorry about that.
  7. You're effectively arguing that Hillarys (a man-made beach, few cafes, overpriced pub, novelty shops) is better than ANYTHING in the UK. You must realise that's mental?

    Some of the old episodes drag. A lot are 6, 8 even 10 episodes when really you could probably tell the story in 2. Also, some of the characters I used to like got on my nerves. But I guess that's changing times.
  9. To be fair, the only issue like that I recall is a fight that happened after an England WC game in either 2010 or 2014. I couldn't stand Joondalup but it wasn't for the reasons you've stated.

    Thinking of moving back to Uk

    The cases are 2.5k a day but that's not the main issue, the main issue is keeping people out of hospital and keeping the death rate down. The vaccination program has achieved that. The testing rates are also very high at the moment so that is supposedly keeping the infection rate up.

    Thinking of moving back to Uk

    Despite every member of the general public clamouring for it, the Govt didn't act quickly enough. AGAIN. But hey, we're used to it now.

    Stuck between 2 countries & its ruining my soul

    The discussion was about someone 'being stuck' in Australia and then a 'when in Rome' comment was thrown in. You then weighed in with the muslim angle, which some people always seem to do with these types of discussion. No bother, I'm not really that interested.

    But we're talking about Australia.

    You see, I've never been able to work out that attitude. Why aren't you entitled to live your life however you want, wherever you live?
