    First Bus Introduce Social Distancing

    Not to mention the possibility that the person living in this hypothetical rural hamlet who for some reason doesn't drive might not have access to the internet .

    Should children go to their local school rather than there being a choice?

    There is no practical way you could ban parents picking up and dropping off in reality . When I went to school sometimes a friends mum would drop us both off or pick us up , because it was more convenient for her to continue her journey to work and because she wanted to avoid the school run...

    Victoria ticket worker dies after being spat on.

    Thoughts go out to family and work colleagues , even worse knowing it could have been completely avoidable Not defending the action in the slightest Intent might be hard to prove and I think the difficulty would be in proving that the act was indeed the cause of infection , leading authority...

    Should children go to their local school rather than there being a choice?

    I think regardless of any benefits or otherwise this would never be a politically popular move limiting parental choice . Ive personally seen instances when a 'bad' school has been improved , at least by measure of GCSE results and ofsted ratings , and yet the local reputation of the school...

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

    Indeed , and on public transport I can see this being something could be used effectively But I dont see what difference or inconvenience is caused by floor markings at 1m or 2m outside the supermarket , for me in that instance there is nothing to be gained by just meeting the minimum standard...

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

    At least if the guidance is kept at 2m people underestimating would have to more than half underestimate to contravene the WHO guidance. Not really sure it makes all that much difference if people queued outside a supermarket are 1m or 2m apart . It makes the queue longer yeah , but in most...

    E-scooters could be legalised and extra funding for cycling

    Actually precisely the same with regards a work-stand , i dont have one atm but im hopefully moving house sometime this year :?: and intend to get one when I have space then , I always used to think I could work without one but after using one of a mates a few times its far easier especially...

    Rail services to be increased on May 18th

    Advising people about the worksafe procedure is not the same as "advising people not to go in" I cannot just decide in the morning that it is going to be unsafe and therefore im going to stay in bed , the worksafe procedure is for when an unsafe situation develops on the job ergo you have to...

    Rail services to be increased on May 18th

    I think the concern and what railstaff have already seen over this bank holiday weekend is increases in leisure travellers not commuters . With people now being given guidance that they can have unlimited exercise and sit in their park some people will undoubtedly take it to extremes and start...

    Rail services to be increased on May 18th

    Im not sure what is going to happen with demand , on the one hand maybe you are right demand wont return in big numbers anytime soon ,at the same time the message delivered to the nation this evening has been quite unclear , and if there is not clarity given soon then people might start...

    Rail services to be increased on May 18th

    Which is basically the normal situation anyway . Only this time assuming the PHE advice of 2m minimum social distancing remains in place its actually probably clearer what is and is not safe with regards to covid-19 . But the past 6 weeks there have been huge reductions in passenger numbers ...

    Boris Johnson Announcement Discussion - 10/05/20

    I think there is a different between being comfortable in lockdown because of those or other factors and actually actively wanting it to continue in perpetuity as well though . I mean thinking about myself for example I live in a small flat with a 3ft by 5ft balcony and I live alone so looking...

    E-scooters could be legalised and extra funding for cycling

    The problem is , encouraging more cycling and walking will work for busses whereby a lot of people could make the switch because they travel distance is suitable for cycling . For a beginner or someone not used to it , I think that 5 miles would be the max to start with . I currently do 4 ...

    Boris Johnson Announcement Discussion - 10/05/20

    I tend to agree with this , most of the people who I am exposed to who want lockdown to continue in perpetuity are middle aged people , mostly women . But im not going to come on the internet and assert that there is any basis for that observation to be stated as a trend . Because I know that...

    What would you like to hear from Boris Johnson's announcement on Sunday evening?

    To be fair , with no need for really late night services I still think at some depots there is capacity to increase services in the day even with numbers still shielding . Obviously it will be depot by depot . First logical step to me seems to be reopening schools , cannot get people back to...

    E-scooters could be legalised and extra funding for cycling

    I tend to agree , in terms of tools you can build up a collection over time ,its not like you will need them all from the very start . And most big cities are likely to have community schemes which teach basic cycle maintenance have workshops you can use . I know where I grew up there is such a...

    E-scooters could be legalised and extra funding for cycling

    Im not sure about jumping off and stopping dead from 15mph which is around the top speed of some of these electric scooters . Yeah I never got the thing about road bikes being so popular for commuting either , I have a road bike and a hybrid, the seating position alone on the hybrid is far...

    What would you like to hear from Boris Johnson's announcement on Sunday evening?

    I would support that for places which can manage crowds like that , although majority of national trust estate in my experience is open access . Much like my local council run park it has about 8 or 9 different entrances and is already increasingly busy as the weather has got better.

    E-scooters could be legalised and extra funding for cycling

    Im not sure about e scooters , I mean I certainly would not want to use one on a potholed road the wheels are too small , and I think some of them are too fast and dont have suitable braking systems to be used on pavements . But more money for cycling provisions can only be seen as a good...

    What would you like to hear from Boris Johnson's announcement on Sunday evening?

    What I want to hear is that furniture shops can reopen , gyms and swimming pools can reopen and that I can visit friends and family not in my household . But thats me being selfish . What I think we will hear is the first baby steps towards relaxing the stay at home advice , with the guidance...
