I was talking to a guy earlier and he had really greasy spectacles.
It might have been the 1,400 temporarily homeless ones.Even MORE bleddy students down on the Quay this afternoon, congregating in large groups with their picnic boxes and carry-outs and blocking the way.
There was ONE hapless policeman talking to just ONE individual amongst the many throngs (I won't comment about his mate just idly lounging around by the car while some of the more crafty "Covid carrion" were just upping stick to go and sit on the other side of the river).
Many of us have been trying to follow the rules to get the numbers coming down. Why should these over-entitled "Tarquins and Cressidas" be exempt from the social norms? At very least the Uni authorities should be banging home hard the message to those in their care about responsibility toward others ?
Sorry. Lego-style rant now over (for today)
PS: Before anyone accuses me of hypocrisy here I was taking my once-a-day permitted exercise with the hounds and the only "picnic" was them being asked to briefly sit for the occasional snack treat.
A right pain...Not sure if my memory is playing tricks,but I can never remember using any sort of Rail/Bus replacement services in the 70s or 80s when I travelled by train a fair bit.Bus Replacement Services. Had to go from New Milton to Souhampton today and with engineering works buses were put on,
