    I don't understand how the National Data Opt Out is not automatically applied to everyone:

    Suggests if you don't opt out they will blithely share your personal, identifiable data with organisations to be used for reasons you've not expressly agreed to.

    I'm guessing that guidance is to prevent a mad rush at the end of the month. Further below, in the guidance to GPs, it says "You will need to register Type 1 Opt-outs (or a withdrawal of the Type 1 Opt-out) in your system before the 30 June 2021. "

    I am now a member of the Pfizer Master Race.

    I had an appointment for 20 miles of a train and a bus away, then 2 days before got a text saying I could get one down the road the next day. Worked out nice.

    Letter from the Council saying they're after PCR testing everyone in my area due to a concerning spike in Delta variant. Lovely.

    Unsurprising, though - there's plenty of people here in Bradford with family in India and surrounding nations. Fingers crossed a broad test regime and isolation knocks it on the head.

    Got to say, with all this happening, my wife and I feel very lucky to be living where we are in rural Somerset. Cases per 100,000 peeps, are still in single figures here.

    "Irreversible"
    ...
    Of course it's not going to be irreversible, and nor should it be. That would be an insane position to take. As has been shown repeatedly circumstances have the potential to change and in the face of new circumstances if they occur things can, have, should and would revert. As well the government/Johnson knows. It's a blatant lie.

    Just a current minor bugbear of mine in the pantheon of them.

    That lie has some rather convenient timing, can't have the legal action against his corruption front and centre now can we...

    If he never lifts the restrictions he won't have to reverse them...

    ... On that cheery note daily infection rates have tripled in the last 30 days. We're already gearing up for another massed wave of infections and lockdown, trying to get at least somewhat ahead of the snowball before local hospitals start telling us to restrict services and handle their outpatients again. I'd like to be proven wrong, but y'know, the last 18 months and all.

    Have a lovely summer everybody :D

    Two of his ministers have acted unlawfully in recent memory, and so has he when he prorogued Parliament and lied to the Queen, not to mention the CCJ against him, so what's one more legal wrangle to add to the pile?

    I'm glad to hear that your mom, if not entirely out of woods yet, is in a clearing.

    Hope you get her home soon.
