 It would appear Theresa May has now called for the "Dom"" to be sacked, and if anyone knows about being cr*p at your job it's her.

Quite a few of the experts, and doctors, say it's to soon. I still don't see what the rush is, from a financial point of view maybe but what price can you put on your {and others} health.

I agree wholeheartedly with you about easing of lockdown is too soon, i would much rather it have continued for at least another three weeks. Even the experts on last nights BBC programme said that, although cases are coming down, they're not coming down much.

Surely that indicates that we are still in a fragile position and it could easily lead to a spike in the number of cases.

Oh well, what do we commoners know? I just hope that we cynics are proved wrong.

As an aside, my sisters care home was tested last week (at last) and 15 carers and residents gave positive test results! Fortunately my sister is in a separate building for the disabled, along with 4 other residents. They have now locked down further whereby just 3 carers are covering all the shifts to avoid transmission of the virus.

All of a sudden there is easing of lockdown by the P.M.

A cynical person would almost believe he has done this to attempt to turn everyone's attention away from the Cummings fiasco.
Either way I STILL think it's too soon, whatever his motives he could be gambling with peoples lives by doing this.

One bit of good news {well two actually} M.P's will be returning to Westminster next week {huzzar} and to avoid them mixing with the riff raff especially on public transport, Parliament has deemed it a good idea to let M.P.'s use taxi's, at the taxpayers expense obviously.

Only one good thing has come out of the Cummings fiasco, that is at least the vast majority of Parliament know where Durham is now!

They appear to be 'tweaking' their rules to fit around him
well if i get covid do you think it will be ok for me to visit relatives in nottingham because there will be nobody here to look after my disabled partner, and then as an impromtu driving test i could also make a 60 mile round trip with a vist to boser castle. ;D

Yes, but on Ancentry there are a lot of Douglas Holmes living in Chesterfield so I want to make sure he didn't move.
General Discussion / Covid - plus

The only plus for me is that I am taking a weeks holiday at home and enjoying the sunshine.
Covid means that I don't have to go out   ;)

I'm still staying in! No shopping for me!
The schools will have a hell of a job on when opening to accommodate more children!

Hello everybody. I've been tracing my family tree on the Ancestry website and I've hit a brick wall. Can you help? I'm trying to trace a Mr Douglas Holmes with links to Belper. He'd be in his 90s now if still with us. If not I'd love to hear from his family members to fill in the gaps. So if you know any Holmes with links to Belper and Chesterfield please help me out. #StaySafe

Welcome to the forum have you checked to see if belper has a family history group or site?
