All steam ahead for this show at the moment, but bad news is that New Holland have withdrawn. They had done the same from Agritechnica even before the show was cancelled.

A shame though.

Can see the whole show being cancelled in the current climate of covid to be honest.

lets hope not - this is all getting beyond stupid now

people need to learn how to live with flu bugs NOT in fear of them - covid is a fact of life forever more now, vaccinate and get on with life and business or frankly the economy, other health care and life in general is going to hell in a handcart to a point where covid becomes the least of societies worries

i really can not see more restrictions in the UK now - economy simply can not take it and people will not comply, you can only get away with telling people what they mist do for so long in free countries

if you are vaccinated there is nothing to worry about much

if you can not vaccinate for any legitimate reason you have my sympathy - isolation is probably wise especially through winter months

if you can vaccinate but haven’t because you believe in crazy conspiracy theories ……… you are probably about to experience Darwins theory of evolution first hand !

While I agree with most of what you are saying, I am not anti vax as such having had 2 jabs but I do wonder what good they are to me? Being very synical and NOT trusting the government one little bit I do wonder are th3 vaccines for my benefit or the benefit of the pharmaceutical companies.

can’t see our government risking destroying our economy to benefit any pharma co !

the vaccine is saving many lives and allowing us to function as a society without lockdowns now, I personal now know of many double vaccinated people that have had covid with no drama whatsoever (including myself twice now!). yet the only unvaccinated person I know of personally who got covid (a friend 58yrs old and fit / healthy) died sadly

I would rather not have to take a vaccine BUT we have no choice, Covid is a fact of life and vaccines are the best solution we currently have, people who refuse to take them are risking their life and all of our freedom ........ that's not smart !

I think you only have to see that all countries in the world are crying out for vaccines even if they can’t afford them and other countries have to donate them to realise they must do some good and aren’t just for pharmaceutical industry profits.

I understand why they may have withdrawn. It’s up to individual companies to assess the risk both to own staff and also the potential bad PR that could come from it depending on how the world looks in January. It’s a tough call a bit like the F1 outcome debate!! You can see it from both sides - hold the event or cancel it

Problem is “Living” is the problem for some folk…
When Covid comes calling…you are no longer calling the shots…

Just like getting on a plane or crossing the round or having surgery. Everyone has to decide what their level of risk is and what the want to do. I have friends my age who don't go out as they don't want the risk and I have friends that do go out.

I still plan to go to OFC, but any away for LAMMA. I'd go to both though. But I would understand people who wouldn't want to go.

We aren't crying out for vaccines in Kenya they are being forced on us. If we don't take them we will be punished by not being allowed back into the reopening world. No one likes to admit it but for large swathes of this world Covid is really not particularly dangerous. The legacy of Covid won't be the numbers of dead it directly caused but the number it will cause due to economic collapse if Governments don't get serious. Anyway the red list rubbish has been scrapped so hopefully it will go ahead and I might come.
