    Dominic Cummings alleged breach of lockdown rules discussion

    It is entirely possible that the people in the pokey flat may have had relatives they could have gone to but didn't, as they thought it was against the law or guidance, when it wasn't. Still at least Mr Cummings has highlighted the issue for thousands of families now. In future they will know...

    Dominic Cummings alleged breach of lockdown rules discussion

    Thanks for that link. It was suggested on LBC earlier that might may have been used because the police didn't speak directly to Mr Cummings or his wife but relied upon other evidence. If the outcome was no further action, why waste policing resources contacting him? I am happy to accept it's...

    Have TfL been told to accept e-tickets?

    Why is one OK and not the other? Is it because they are separate TOCs?

    Dominic Cummings alleged breach of lockdown rules discussion

    I wrote to my local MP, which is something I rarely do. In amongst various things I wanted to raise awareness for, I mentioned my views on Mr Cummings. What I'm about to write wasn't in my e-mail to my MP though I think if what Mr Cummings did, didn't warrant a fine, then no one should be...

    Dominic Cummings alleged breach of lockdown rules discussion

    He clearly broke rules by driving to Barnard Castls Driving to Durham is likely to be within the rules and guidance. Not to mention laws. So whether one thinks it wise or not, I doubt he can be charged for that. However Barnard Castle is totally different kettle of fish. It does call into...

    Is it time to relax the 2m social distancing guideline? (WHO guidance is 1m)

    True but then it wasn't 1m because they felt the general public could not ecognise 1m. Tim doubt that has changed. When I measured out 2m, someone I know was surprised at how much closer it was than they thought. I measured this out when at one point they came to drop off food. I'm in the...

    Quickest Route not permitted

    Perhaps they saw the fact the trains didn't connect well, compared to the disallowed route and decided aginast travelling. :D

    Have TfL been told to accept e-tickets?

    So would one be able to buy an eTicket from Gatwick Airport to West Sutton? West Sutton having no barriers. To my surprise one can. Same for Effingham Junction to West Sutton and that is the same price as to Sutton. £5.80 I assume breaking one's journey at Sutton would be lawful as its an any...

    Have TfL been told to accept e-tickets?

    Well if they want people to move to eTickets then they need to provide the technology. I do appricate things cannot always happen overnight. I have used eTickets for longer journeys but for shorter ones I've had to rely on paper tickets because I never seem to be making a journey where...

    Enforcement of the new rules on social distancing, unnecessary journeys etc.

    True it doesn't but they need to be contacted at last. I see Dominic Cummings has gone to 10 Downing Street. Obviously Boris Johnson felt the reason Mr Cummings had to attend was essential and Mr Cummings couldn't do whatever it is remotely. Video conferencing is very good these days...

    Have TfL been told to accept e-tickets?

    But that isn't an issue at Sutton is it? I'm examole doesn't use TfL. I mentioned it again as I thought more stations were meant to be accepting eTickets.

    Is it time to relax the 2m social distancing guideline? (WHO guidance is 1m)

    Germany has gone for 1.5m so could we follow that instead of 1m?

    Long term social distancing: Impact on public life & public transport?

    Maybe legally you don't but wouldn't it be prudant to do so. I mean people taking driving tests when once upon a time they didn't.

    Long term social distancing: Impact on public life & public transport?

    https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-safer-travel-guidance-for-passengers I don't know if this has been covered in the 45 pages so far but doing the above will only be possible if TOCs run their full services. For example on my last trip I made an additional change at Redhill...

    Enforcement of the new rules on social distancing, unnecessary journeys etc.

    I agree with the social services help. I don't know if it's needed in all safe guarding issues but you'd have thought so. If only a journalist has thought to ask the general question, if there is a safe guarding issue do you think someone should refer themselves to social services? I didn't...

    Enforcement of the new rules on social distancing, unnecessary journeys etc.

    Well indeed. That allegation only surfaced after I thought of the above reasoning, although it was before I posted on here. However I decided to post anyway. When someone claims to have done nothing wrong and then someone else says the reasons why you can do something, I like to join them...

    Have TfL been told to accept e-tickets?

    Well if that is the case, perhaps eTicket isn't the solution but what would be faster but not paper based? This is more likely a separate discussion. I had read on here more stations would be getting the ability to accept eTickets but I don't know if it has happened yet.

    Govenment Briefing 23rd May - Reversing Beeching Cuts

    You can report something is wrong with the page so I just did. There is also the option is this page helpful, where you could put no and it might give you the opinion to comment.

    Enforcement of the new rules on social distancing, unnecessary journeys etc.

    According to Dupty CMO, Jenny Harris, at the Daily Briefing yesterday, going to other family is OK if their is a safe guarding issue for a child. That is a justifiable reason to travel. This then makes me wonder if Mr Cummings felt he was unable to look after his child safely. Given it is...

    Have TfL been told to accept e-tickets?

    Well I just did a check and one still can't get an eTicket from Effingham Junction to Sutton. That route doesn't pass through any TfL owned stations and surely Sutton can't be so busy that using eTicket would slow things down too much.
