Imo no , hold em back for 6 weeks and get the vaccine rolled out
Poll hasn't appeared ffs
you are looking at a lot more than 6 weeks to get a significant amount of people vaccinated ...... doubt I will see a needle this year

kids should definitely go back to school - education is essential and parents need to work

just keep kids well away from higher risk individuals....... ie common sense

How will we pay for out wonderful NHS if there is no economy left ?

there has to be a balance

i think we will all go tier 4 in the new year however, its winter, all flu gets worse in winter

It’s an aside, but why is the approval of the Oxford vaccine taking so long?
Would the creators of the vaccine really have submitted it for review if it wasn’t ready? Isn’t there a danger of losing a critical fortnight for nothing more than procedure? Might it not be prudent to begin vaccination of those most at risk or even volunteers who are willing to take the risk now before the review is complete?

In my view if you are serious about slowing the virus then schools should be closed for at least January. It’s almost certain that the NHS will be overwhelmed as it is. Schools going back will just make it twice as bad. Sad but true.
My view entirely

AHDB has announced yesterday it is winding down significant activities on behalf of the horticulture and potatoes sectors.

AHDB will continue to deliver limited emergency work on pests and diseases, including the Extension of Authorisation for Minor Use (EAMU)’s and some...
