That takes more courage than I have. Much respect to these young activists
It seems the young people are the ones who are truly brave. The older people seem to sit back and take whatever is handed to them. I am very impressed with the young people.
😂 😂 😂, in my beloved country "Pearl of the Orient" each citizen can actually shabbly critisize the government even if they don't really know what the heck is going on, too much democracy and too much freedom is equal to failure because of immense dopiness around,, sorry about my sarcastic statement I just can't help it,, 🙄🙄🙄
Students should challenge British Monachy too. It's useless to say least.
Era of worshipping families should be long gone
Thais prefer to have monarchy & military regime for the political stability. Probably thais have lack of democracy. Only young students need democracy government.
It’s not the monarchy, it’s the sleezy monarch and his corrupt military.
Meanwhile in the US our president can't even pronounce that country's name.
In the US our president wants us to pronounce it as “Thighland” so he doesn’t feel stupid. K thanks 🥴
If only the British students also had her guts.
Be careful what you wish for. Overruling the monarchy means you will have politicians in charge of everything 😂
My daughter’s middle name is Sirikit...like the queen of Thailand. Had no idea it’s illegal to share the queen’s name there . Technically, my daughter is named after a close friend.
In North Korea It results in Death penalty
So Thailand Is Better as Compare to Kim's Land 😳
I don't live in Thailand, but as a long term neighbor in Vietnam I heard a lot of good story about the Thailand royal family, especially about king Bhumibol, so I don't know why these young people do this.
The current king, unlike his father, is not respected.
Thailand's key of impressive containment of Covid-19 is people do NOT believe in Thai government. Cannot discuss other topics due to article 112 in Thailand which cause a dead in jail.
OMG!! I'm so happy that BBC has published this essential topic that is happening Now in Thailand. We need new things! New great law, new political parties, new head of the country! What we have now is the Opposite! They revise our law sentences to theirs behind the mysterious help of someone we can't touch(because it also helps him/her to stay safe under the law). They have taken the voice from us and spend our taxes money as it is last infinity without asking or bringing any benefit to their citizens. We have become their enemies to speak out the truth! We keep wondering if this is really how Democracy works. All forces are in their hands to beat and get rid of people who act differently.
So we have been suffered from this and hardly no one could help. At least we need them to listen! What we are facing are truly cruel! We Need To Move Forward and Make a country developed. for our new generation. But with those people who are greedy and nearly dead are still real Criminals that keep killing us for poaching their power. So, please help.
I know that each country in the world faces different issues. But human being should be treated equally! Not basing on their lives-level. So bring peace and well being to people who you are working hard for. Not only take any kind of benefits to yourself. This is what they often forgot.
Royal families are an anachronism.
The sooner they are removed, the better. It applies to them too.
Good. Absolutely no place in a modern times for any form of unelected leadership especially a hereditary one.
Thank you BBC...you guy that your communication around the world..about. miss behaviour of Thailand governor
Thank you BBC for reporting this news. R.I.P thai media
Leave people alone. Is it too difficult to be respectful
Yeah good for them, idiots in india rever politicians like gods and celebrate independence day at the same time, there's a statue and fan base for every politician in india, yet people complain about poverty and corruption, f****** hypocrites
Any govt that hands out prison sentences for simple criticism is destined for a hell of their own making
I’ve nowhere else to post this - I have been up watching the ‘all night’ BBC international news,.
Not one reference to VJ Day at all.
I am devastated, shocked and unbelievably annoyed at this.
How the hell have the BBC news failed to acknowledge this important event..
My father was incarcerated for four years at the hands of the Japs as a POW.
He finally passed on 2005 aged 81. He was only 17 when he went into the RAF and was ultimately captured in Burma so this all means such a lot to me , as I’m sure it does with other sons and daughters in my position.
The news/ media constantly covered VE Day.... why the hell not VJ !
There is even an article every night on BBC news called “ this week in history” - again , unbelievably no mention of VJ Day which happened ‘this week in history’ but many other less obvious marks of history are mentioned.
I wish to contact the BBC regarding this , is anyone else doing the same or noticed this please ? The media are covering everything but VJ.
I’m so upset by this.
Their UN Ambassador was told not to refer to a their king as a living god any more and it soon stopped
I was told by an American that poorer people were being advised to post their mail in votes in more prosperous areas. What a country.
This is purely Donald Trump suppressing Americans constitutional right to VOTE! He knows he can’t win an election fairly so he’s destroying our USPS. He fears going immediately to PRISON, where he belongs, when he loses. 🇺🇸💙🇺🇸
Goodness me. In Australia where postal voting is gaining in popularity there is a period of Grace. I am sure everything will be fine.
Why do this rearrangement months before the election? We have been raising the debt ceiling literally for years and years ... this could have waited post-election?
Why are “they” trying to scare the public. My family has worked for the US postal service for collectively more than 50 years and they do a very fine job.
There are 3rd worlds countries with more efficient voting systems. Truly a great nation!
In our area, we have secure drop boxes for absentee voters in lieu of mailing. R states have been known to up and close, under-staff, or under- supply voting centers.
Wear your masks guys, and go vote him out! It’s project FEAR! They are manipulating all of us in order to win, when actually Mr Trump doesn’t want to win.
The ballots do not have to be counted by election day. The ballots must be post marked by election day. Big difference.
Well duuuuhhh they don’t run well now. Let’s drop another 100 million pieces on them in a short time great idea
Easy go vote in person like we have always done and your vote is immediately counted.
UN needs to send international observers to this new third world banana republic and monitor the election
Worst most inefficient postal service in the world - should be termed and privatized
"Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds" - US Postal Creed
The first time someone dies because they did not get their medication deJoy should be charged with murder. He already knows it can happen.
Ok we admit it--this whole American experiment has failed. We're ready to rejoin the Commonwealth.
Is it true 70% of Republicans can't spell X?
- Trump's recent unqualified appointée for Postmaster General is there for one purpose only; to screw things up in the USPS so badly, that the GOP (greedy old parasites) and their equally corrupt #45 - stay in office for another 4 years. By which time, the nation may well have imploded. Welcome to the Banana Republic of America!
Mail in votes should not be allowed, Democrats will of course find a way to suit their needs to cheat. Crooks will always be crooks.
Critics have blamed the new USPS head, a loyal supporter of President Donald Trump, for a slowdown in deliveries. On Thursday, Mr Trump said he was blocking additional funding for the USPS to help with election issues, because he opposed mail-in voting. He has repeatedly said mail-in ballots will lead to voting fraud. Experts say the mail-in voting system, which is used by the American military and by Mr Trump himself, is safe from tampering.
My state of Maryland will have over 350 voting polls open and they will be open over a week before Election Day. In addition there are numerous drop off locations across the state for early voting. Walmart is packed daily but you can’t risk voting in person 🙄👋
Why is it a shock. Trump said he woild do it. Though to be fair him following through on a promise is rare
It is absolutely unbelievable that our government is allowing this! I don’t even get my own mail on time. There is so much room for error, but I guess that’s what the Democratic Party is banking on!🤬
It's simple. Request your ballot now. Once you receive it, fill it out. Check with your local registrar or board of elections to find out where you can find a drop location. Drop off your completed ballot. Track verification of receipt online. Sit back and watch the election results in November.
Looks like Trump and the republicans are going to succeed in their plan to suppress the vote through mail.
The greatest threat to peace and stability around the world is the US.
I think the reason Venezuela is buying might be because it could be cheaper to produce in Iran right now.
Venezuela’s economy is suffering due to sanctions and oil prices. It makes no sense for Venezuela to keep producing when barrels of oil are so cheap.
What’s more, Venezuela provides their citizens with subsidized gas prices and that is a promise made since Chavez. People just pay 1 cent per litter.
Therefore, it is completely unprofitable and even they incur loses by doing so than it is to buy.
This is actually called.... Theft!
It's getting close to election Trump need some drama. Iran is a backward country but he can play a game to
US is as much of a conventionally traditional terror organization as any other. The only distinction is that Washington is internationally backed and got the premise of the merits of law to serve as a pretext, justifying its systematically cruel abuses.
So again it will be the everyday kind of people who will feel the brunt of this just as cruelly as if sanctions were imposed against their country
Why does it appear that Trump is trying to start a war with Iran?
Is he trying to start a war so he can stay in office?
They can't deal with china or Russia always going for the weakest link to make America seem great again losers
The US once again acting in violation of international law. When will they stop acting like the world policemen
And this is why Venezuela continues to suffer, because of actions of the u.s..
Wag the Dog. Classic US move to create distraction from epic failure of domestic leadership in our country. Losing the election? Start a war!
I think it is called stealing.
is not that considered piracy?
So not content with bombing producers to steal their oil they've resorted to piracy!😡
When the ballot box looks unlikely they start a war.
"US steals 1.1 million barrels is oil"
Iran is one 50 countries the US has interfered with in the last 60 years...and they accuse China of worldwide interference...hypocrisy at its best
Sorry but I don't get it. Why seize it, when we need it as much of it as we can get it for a reasonable price? Is someone shooting themselves in the foot here? Or does somebody need shooting? Would be interesting to know who!
It seems bizarre an oil rich country such as Venezuela would need to import oil at all, just goes to show, another epic failure of Socialism.
"Gimme a war I don't care with who, anybody will do. I need a distraction from my stealing the coming election by preventing people from voting". I need to stay in power. Those cowards in the senate won't be an obstacle." Guess who is probably saying that?
We have sanctions on both countries...not sure where we have the right.
Interesting, Venezuela, once an exporter of oil, now need to import it. I wonder why...
So because US sanctions them...doesn't mean other countries can't do business..
So now US are stealing oil from other countries
Hahaha j just yesterday dump was saying that he (and he alone) has bought peace to the middle East! Despicable behavior dump!
This year we've had " covid 19" and " Trump 20". His uttered words are as infecting as a virus, and thus: he's the "covid 20".
Many of us have come to accept AND EXPECT nonsense vomit out of Trump's mouth since the day he was treasoned into office. We are not going to ever change the EVIL that is Trump, but we will RESIST HIM EVERY SECOND and in every action we can get. Trump is a cretin and always will be.
The less response they make better... Silence is the perfect expression of scorn!
Trump needs to just shut his mouth if he can't speak the truth or back up what he is saying as being correct. He is going to end his own presidency because he just can't learn to keep his mouth shut.
Please don’t respond to Trump. Keep wearing your mask and stay focus on the prevention and enforcing face mask. You may just get my note. -Former Trump supporter.
POTUS heard about it and has a remote idea of what he is talking about. He is seriously insane based on the tweet tirade.
I heard what the president said. He definitely was “fueling” it. How stupid ! Anyone who is born in the US can run for President or Vice President
No one reads articles the quote says "I just heard that (theory) today... I'm sure the Democrats checked her eligibility before choosing her" stop misinforming and READ people
Either she meets the requirements or she doesn’t. The law decides. Not comment’s!😜🤣😄😄🤡
Sleepy, sleazy Biden getting his feathers ruffled.
He should go and take it easy back at the care home.
I just hope they don't stoop to trump's level and start shouting back, they should try to not respond to his grotesque and vile comments (after all he is just a grotesque and vile person) and focus on the issues and what they propose to do.
Bottom line is this: as long as she was born in the US she can run for VP.
Judging by the calibre of past and present candidates for President.. with the exception of KH, America might do better in allowing citizens who werent born in the US to run...certainly could only help
Thankyou for calling it out. We need everyone to call out poor behaviour!
But it remains red all in the ballot
Great pick. She's intelligent and fierce..
It didn't when he did it to Barack and it won't work now.
And then you report on it, amplifying it even more.
Oh, please! DT’s campaign lawyer had retweeted this garbage, and DT was absolutely ready for the question to come up. And unlike John McCain, who had class and intelligence, DT took relish in repeating crap that he knows is crap. DT could have taken the Mc Cain route and disavowed the ridiculous conspiracy theory, but of course he did not.
Geez, by now everyone knows you are campaigning for Biden and the Democrats. Shame on you BBC! You are an enemy to the people!
Everything about Biden and company is abhorrent and seditious.. shame on their every breath
I expect no less from the Liar in Chief. Don the con and his large number of marks are the present day snake oil salesmen.
He will try any and all ways to steal the election. Don't let him.
Or maybe it’s not a conspiracy?!
There are a lot of theories about her, and most are true
Makes me wonder why someone doesn't just sue the gobshyte for slander and libel. It worked on Elon Musk.
Go Dolly💕 So funny how all the folks telling her to just go back to singing, and don’t like her message!🤪 I am guessing they probably voted for a game show host 4 years ago——
Replace all confederate statues with Dolly Parton. Her literacy work is admirable.
She’s a national treasure. We’re so lucky to have her. #Dolly
Not just little",tiny" the entire racism thing has More to do with the mindset,call it jealousy on on other level 😭
I was never a huge fan of her music, but I adore her as a person.
A lot of the people advocating ‘all lives matter’ are the same ones having meltdowns about rubber dinghies.. maybe they should say ‘all lives matter (terms and conditions apply)’!
When your ancestors had to endure hearing 'ALL Men Are Created Equal' while slaving away in a plantation for 400 years, I can understand why you'd want to include the emphasis.
Dolly is suddenly becoming a member of the Political correctness brigade, but I am not sure she understands the elements of envy and resentment towards many white people in that they're perceived to have it so easy.
There some people in this world who are so fortunate that they have never had to complete application forms as most of what they desire are offered to them on a silver platter. The perception of white privileges,....not having to climb every mountain, follow every highway and Ford every stream....to lead a simple uncomplicated life....all because one is fortunate to be white in a white mans country, whose ancestors had established roots for millennia
Thank goodness we have the BBC to keep stirring the pot of racial tension over an incident thousands of miles away in a foreign country.
She is one of those people who can say that and she’ll be fine. People revere her here in Tennessee. She employs hundreds of people and donates millions of dollars. There was some discussion of putting a statue of her up in the state Capitol building in Nashville to replace a Confederate bust.
She is phenomenal. From her support for trans folks and BLM, to her literacy program...she uses her voice for good.
the human race is made up of lots of different colors--and they will NEVER all get along-ever since the beginning of time we have been terrible to each other, enslaved each other, made war with each other and tried to bend others to our way of thinking. Gods creation has failed terribly
Yes.She said what she said! Dolly has always supported equality and feminism her whole life. Her whole career !If you're late figuring this out, can you really say you were ever a real fan?
All these people coming out to support BLM, wait until the cameras are not on them let’s see if they still give a sh*t.
ALL LIVE MATTER REGARDLESS OF OUR COLOUR AN WE SHOULD TRY AN LIVE TOGETHER IN HARMONY REGARDLESS OF THE COLOUR OF OUR SKIN
For a second I thought this was announcing that Dolly had passed. My heart skipped a beat from fear!
and this is one more reason why we all love Dolly
Absolutely! We also like a coat of many colours
Never would have put her down as a marxist, defund the Police, close the prisons, anarchist type of person. Just shows how far removed from common sense the wealthy celebrities are. Jump on any bandwagon if they think it makes the dollars.
" With a broad fan base that spans the right and the left, the singer generally eschews political subjects." It's not a political subject, nor should it be, rejecting racism is the bare minimum for humanity.
Its amazing to me that we are debating whether black lives matter, and that some people still have some objections.
Black Lives Matter ✊🏿. As a black person I have seen and experienced how we are also treated while traveling. Everything is questionable but it is what is.
All Lives Matter.
Get over it BBC and your pure, far left obsession with ‘non-stories’ on this topic.
But she’s not endorsing the BLM movement in that statement she is simply found another way to say that all lives matter
Love how she has pointed out not ONLY white people matter, black and all people matter.
This happened in March, Australia have now done a detailed investigation. They have taken it very seriously.
UK no investigation after massive death toll. No release of pandemic planning exercise report 'operation Cygnus'. As the UK Government clearly ignored it's findings, which may have helped proper preparation to reduce UK deaths if it had been heeded.
No inquiry into the handling of the pandemic so far.in UK.
Australia is way more accountable to its citizens.
Mistake number 1:
Went on a cruise during a global pandemic.
shocking that this was allowed when the world was preparing to go into lockdown
They should be held accountable
Cruise ships are infection traps anyway Look how something like Norovirus spreads through them !
All these Muppets going abroad when there's a Pandemic on and Complaining when they Introduce Quarantine measures to come back into Britain !!!
We docked at Dover, after a cruise round the Med on March 19. There were no cases of Covid on board & we’d not docked for almost a week, owing to our last three ports having closed. However, we were surprised that there were no checks whatever when we landed
They're just a petri dish of illness. I have elderly relatives who go on cruises quite regularly. They had one booked for March but cancelled it in January. They just took the risk that they'd lose the money.
So, without isolation and masks virus was transmitted only to the half of people.
Who was that 24 dead persons?
People over 90?
I don't think BBC is the right way to point out something on what other countries have done wrong with the pandemic when we know how bad the UK is managing the situation.
Mishandled? Sad to speculate. A sister vessel of which i handled in Dubai. Keep safe everyone especially those onboard
We sailed to Alaska on the Ruby Princess, a brilliant cruise
20 year old in Australia died of C19 yesterday.
If really emission new right way for majority and then wrong the new go ahead difficult of life time in these country
Refreshing to read a BBC report not blaming the UK for a Covid mistake for once 🤣
Their appointed time has come to an end
Conducting an investigation at such a late stage itself is already a serious mistake. Screen all disembarked passengers by an infra red temperature isotherm monitoring system. Hospitalise all those with fever of 36.5℃ or over and those with other symptoms like coughing & shortness of breath etc. Even an untrained primary school student can do it! Many lives can thus be saved and the pandemic can be grasped better.
And one of those mistakes were made by everyone who still decided too take the cruise knowing there was a deadly virus out on the world!!!!
People need too take responsibility for there part in this as well.
890 survived! Not bad odds given ages and health conditions of many passengers! Their choice. I might have risked it!🤔
Meanwhile in the UK, flu deaths and pneumonia deaths have been 3 times greater than Covid deaths EVERY week for the last 7 weeks.....BBC brainwashing continues
Why are they allowing cruises, and who in their right mind would want to go on one??!!!!
After everything that happened with cruise ships, I will never, ever take a cruise.
Where is Albo on this? Somebody needs to take the Fed's and ABF to task over the Ruby Princess debacle and the inquiry whitewash of their responsibility.
I mean. Yeah. The 28 cases in New Zealand and the 756 cases in Australia Must have been a massive concern.
When will the works and the BBC realise that finger pointing and blaming isn’t going to change a thing.
We are living with this here and now. Not 6 months in the past. Not 6 months in the future. We need to concentrate on minimising risks for all, staying healthy and following safety advice.
Just confirms my reluctance to go on a cruise....ever
Slso shows you how risky this actually is...bearing in mind how many elderly passengers cruise ships have. Out of 2100 people 24 died...its not great but equally its 1% of people on board?
And the average age of someone on a cruise.........
That's a surprise to me, during my time . I didn't know nothing but children of today are more clever than us. The brain is expandable even for young ones now days . Life is too good, if you work hard. The seeds did scattered in the rocks but in the well nourished soil. Congrats to him.
Always had excellent customer service from Gym Shark. He's managed to keep the friendly feel despite how huge it is.
Well done to him
good on him, he’s done extremely well, great brand
Man so many people getting praised for going to china and saying "can you put my logo on this in this colour" and then they're like "yeah bro lemme fire up the sweatshop"
If he would be able to give just little of from a pin .. I can appreciate it .. .. I dam mean it.
It’s amazing to know he did something before he did the thing he made a lot of money doing.........................?............
Well done to him , he's worked hard to launch his brand gymshark good luck to him 😃👍
Well done. Just love a success story. The guy has worked so hard. He deserves a big pat on the back 💪💪💪💪💪💪💪💪
Congrats to him.
So after taxes he's worth 25 million £?
Still 25 million more than me.
Gym shark and furloughed staff have been an amazing support to Birmingham Children’s Hospital during COVID 👏🏻😷👍
What an amazing achievement!
So, how did he become a billionaire? Fair play like, but the garage startup, like thousands of others just doesn’t make sense. (Who bank rolled the business). Is his brother still sewing for him? Has he recruited a few thousand Malaysian kids to sew for him, has this all been whitewashed and covered up but backed by conglomerates and now he is the poster boy for a ‘success story’. Where is the real news here?
He's done very well. Come along way from making his own gym t shirts in his parents back room.
He is man enough to control himself with the little money a billion pounds ?!?
He can give it to me. Hell I have a lot of stuff I can do with it😅
Well done young man👏🏿
Well done my step son manager of gym it hard work x
Fair play to the guy!
Just put this story out every year?
But Billionaires are all bad people?
That’s success and a true self-made billionaire !
He’s worked very hard on his enterprise, his company is seeking the rewards from the fitness community. Excellent customer service and great products
Good on him. The UK needs more like him. We need to lose the anti business stance so many in Britain seem to have.
GymShark is a very need to have brand... i am beyond happy with their products and happy to support them . A very well done🤗👏👏👏👏
Hard work, drive and imagination, well done! Inspiration to all 😊
Well done to him. But don’t forget it all depends on connection, luck.
You know, even in chaotic America, they publish what is known as the "positivity rate" (the percentage of tests coming back positive). It's completely beyond us. We panic over "a rise in cases" with no idea if that's down to the massive rise in testing. Our Government's response "that data is not available". You can find the needle in the haystack, if you look hard enough.
Bit annoying as my Mum is seeing her Dad in Leeds which is not in the affected area, but her sister lives in Calderdale which is an affected area 😡😠🤬
This virus is confusing the hell out of me. My dad had it around 3 months ago. He's 83. He had 2 negative results before they released him to a nursing home. The home have been testing him every week, all negative. Yesterday he got taken by ambulance back to hospital with pneumonia. I rang to ask how he was this morning to be told he'd got COVID!! I am in shock. They're saying it's probably been lying dormant in him all this time. Not sure how it's not shown up in numerous swabs over the last 6 weeks....
Apart from people going into shops wearing masks, today when l had to go out l have seen very little evidence of people taking this seriously. No wonder in certain areas of the UK cases are increasing.
Well, are we surprised? Looking at the thousands of visitors, who're wandering around my area of NW Wales, few are wearing masks in stores, or socially distancing in the village streets. The locals have suffered + worked hard to keep our covid19 numbers low, We're now waiting to see what evolves in the weeks to come.
Effing cheek - UK figures of new cases are much higher than France (Marseille has 50 cases per 100 000 and is seen as high risk nationally compared to 100 per 100 000 in Oldham) yet the UK govt chose to put isolation in place for those arriving from France! Mindless oafs
This is rubbish, lockdows, that allow you to go on holiday anywhere you like, pointless.
The case numbers will rise because now more people are being tested 🙈
We should be more concerned with actual deaths from covid and hospitalized cases which have significantly decreased.
The government has quietly removed 1.3m coronavirus tests from its data because of double counting, raising fresh questions about the accuracy of the testing figures. Reported in the Guardian.
The more you test, the more cases you'll find. If you don't test, then there'll be no cases.
Yet the ONS says the Covid figures have stayed the same for weeks
Sick of the mixed messages and media hype trying to keep us scared to live
Cases: not deaths.....if as we are being led to believe that we are testing more then it is inevitable that we will have more cases....its not f*[email protected]$"$$ing rocket science is it.....
as long as we don't have the vaccine, we won't be free of Covid
When is a lock down NOT a lock down
When it's a local lock down
The present control or loss of control in managing this pandemic by this government is a complete shambles
What kind of honesty is that where you mention that cases rose without mentioning that testing rose too??? BBC propaganda LIARS
There are still cases some areas are higher but deaths are way way down.
Common sense, more testing, more cases 🤦🏻♂️
Please can you tell me How many hospitalisations and how many deaths there are for this week?
I live in Kirklees a lockdown area but in my ward no covid absolutely pathetic as is this government
Why can’t you cover #SaveOurChildren BBC, what are you afraid of?
Stop saying YORKSHIRE. It's the biggest county in England. All those cases are from West Yorkshire. You need a passport to get into East Yorkshire you bloody Wessies
It isn't surprising that they've risen - a closer look at summer activities says it all,without mincing words; they could be even higher if nothing drastic is to to roll them back.
Given that there are statistics for individual areas, I don’t see why the lockdowns can’t be more localised.
Testing for the common cold corona virus
I think at the end we will have to treat it as Flu and get over it or die
So true. Would it really matter to stay home just for one summer.
I’ve had to due to the Uk 15 day self confinement.
All I think is safety first.
Don’t forget the life long saying
Prevention is better than cure.
In this case we probably should say
Prevention is better than death.
Let’s all do our best to keep safe. 😘😘😘😘
Why a quarantine? Why do they not offer a test scheme at the border? Then everyone could be sure and people could return as planned?
Everything is just so chaotic in Britain.
So to be clear..... if they get back today they’re fine .... but if they’re delayed and get back tomorrow ... they’re a risk ....
Went into the services on the M4 today and loads of people in there with no masks on. I thought you had to wear them when indoors seems not.
What happened to being nice to each - no one has any idea why these people have gone abroad. If they self isolate it is no worse than going to Tesco where no one where’s a mask, holidaying in this country where beaches are packed and no one socially distancing or all the kids going back to school - yeh we are such an example
People know the chance of quarantine, they've been told, so stop complaining. I've not seen my daughter in Australia for over a year and maybe not for another year. We should have been visiting her in Nov but that's not happening, probably be next year when we get to see her again. But we all have to work together to get rid of Covid so that next year may be different. 🤞🤞
Why cant people just wait till things get better. This was the problem in the beginning the flights into uk wasn't stopped. Wake up goverment.
Shouldn't have gone in the first place. Bunch of muppets!
Why did people think from a common sense point of view it was okay to travel to another country without the risks of this happening
People were told that countries outside the quarantined rules were always under review and if they had an increase in cases they would go on the 14 day quarantined list.
They have only themselves to blame, no one else. You went taking the risk onboard so suck it up people.
Why do people think that anyone abroad is a HOLIDAYmaker???
Many, many people travel for other reasons.
My brother was supposed to travel to France next week to meet his brand new niece, celebrate my eldest's 4th birthday and help me move house... none of that can be replaced, delayed or recaptured.
We haven't been able to see each other since February (longer even than those shielding).
A friend now can't travel back to the UK for her mother's 80th birthday party - another event that, once gone, is irreplaceable.
Thousands and thousands of people travel every day for family, for loved ones, for life... not "just" for a holiday.
Just should not be allowed to happen. Is this government so stupid to think that the virus won’t infect people before the quarantine starts?!? On top of this you now have many more people, whom wouldn’t have, mixing at airports, ports and train stations just so they can escape back to the UK (to potentially infect friends and family). Get a grip and get out. Follow the Lebanese governments example and leave power.
So they’ve realised then that going on holiday during pandemic is a mistake and a big no no😂
We all know they’ll come home late and not quarantine anyway. What’s to stop them, the police 🤣
Should've stayed put this year, but people will NEVER learn!!!!!!😡
With Covid 19 in their luggage.
Should have been immediate. These people could be bringing it back. We’re they tested as they arrived
it's so arbitrary, there will be an increased risk from those coming back now
Hardly essential travel. Would it really hurt not to have had holiday this year. If you make that choice knowing how quickly the situation is changing then be prepared for fallout.
Yeah wtg airlines - let’s rip people off in a bad situation - and they wonder why the public don’t support them getting taxpayer payouts 😡😡
This is so wrong, at least give reasonable timescales to allow them to get home and to stop these greedy companies charging extortionate prices 🙄
100K tests per day to 700K tests per day of course the numbers will be higher.
It was predictable but still they went...😎
That’s what you get for going on holiday abroad in the middle of a pandemic 😂
Britain, we got it, you want to leave the EU. But this is not the way, you are making it worse for yourself. Be rational please.
We impose a quarantine based on science, France reciprocate for spite!
Tells you all you need to know about the French government.
I think The Sun"s front page Death Train is highly insulting.
I have noticed, In UK many bridges near to collapse. Isn’t enough tragedy?
I've rarely travelled by train but way back in 76 our train to Cornwall came uncoupled and year later in 77 same thing happened on s trip to London each time we were left hoping nothing would come and shunt us
Very sad for the families involved. Not being flippant but wondering if the establishment would have the front to also attribute these deaths to Covid 19 as that seems to trump any other reason. Sinisterly.
trains so ancient move on to the future of high speed rail and better groundworking
It was a really tragic event. Such incidents are rare but when such an accident happens the soul trembles. I offer my condolences to the families of the victims
Such a tragedy thank goodness the train had minimal passengers on it due to covid or injury and death tolls would of been so much higher. My thoughts are with all involved 😪
Prince Charles to the rescue! 🙄
Usually happens when you’re going to fast,
So many people were so lucky to walk away alive!
I bet the train is made in china..
So it's more chance accident😂😂💩
There was only nine people on the train including the dead
Dear BBC please change the writers of BBC News Africa they're always publishing nonsense and negative staff about Africa nothing more
Amazed only 3 died! Looks carnage and you can see where the carriages burned.
Passengers could've told them that, but thanks
This is Very sad and condolences to the victims families, but unfortunately I think you’ll find that too higher speed played a major part in the severity of this accident for the conditions and the fact it was working wrong line part the way back to Aberdeen and with known landslides in the area as well. in the past trains have been halted and not moved and passengers taken away by other means...
Probably just catching the train as usual, a sad day when you expect someone to be home at their usual time and then you get the knock on the door.
my Condolences to the affected families 🙏🙏❤️
They hadn't recently removed trees from the area had they? This is done quite often by contractors, who forget that trees help hold the soil together and consume massive amounts of water that would otherwise cause landslips. Whatever the cause... A sad loss of life and condolences to the families of those who have died.
"However, landslips and other earthworks failures remain a risk to trains that needs to be constantly managed - and this is becoming even more challenging for the rail industry due to the increasing incidence of extreme weather events." ....
So basically global warming caused this. .. increasing incidences of extreme weather.
What's wrong with 2020?
Stonehaven, a sad, but somewhat natural disaster, it was a miracle more lives weren't lost, the landslide had been spotted further down the line, a signalman stopped the train and it was re routed back, I'm at a loss how the accident occurred unless it met with another landslide after it was re routed, if that's the case, what's the chances!
La teoría de : "hay enfermedades contagiosas" es FALSA!
Así dice el Señor Dios :
"En aquellos días no dirán más: Los padres comieron las uvas agrias y los dientes de los hijos tienen la dentera, sino que cada cual morirá por su propia maldad; los dientes de todo hombre que comiere las uvas agrias, tendrán la dentera."
JEREMÍAS 31 : 29- 30.
Juicio: Complot contra un ungido de Dios .
" Por tanto, así ha dicho Jehová: He aquí yo traigo sobre ellos mal del que no podrán salir; y clamarán a mí, y no los oiré."
Jeremías 11 : 11
JEREMÍAS 33 : 3. 💣💣💥🙌
Remind me of Genoa bridge
