  1. Waitrose I could inderstand but Tesco?????????????
  2. The shorter crossing with a later departure from St Malo would allow people to find overnight hotels further away from the port at reasonable costs rather than have to pay the insane prices in St Malo itself, in order to meet the earlier sailing times.
  3. Timings though may depend largely on the tides, as St Malo is a heavily tidal port.
  4. The Governments own instructions are that if someone feels they are exempt from wearing a face covering, then it is for them to exempt themselves. No one is permitted to ask why nor are you required to produce any written evidence or card https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/face-coverings-when-to-wear-one-and-how-to-make-your-own/face-coverings-when-to-wear-one-and-how-to-make-your-own Up in the north near Leeds yesterday I was in Costco and at least 60% were without and the same in a large shopping centre nearby. That was of all ages and some staff as well. The centre has now removed all the previous notices, door staff and direction lanes. My local Co oP is pretty much the same as well.
  5. Indeed but raises the question, if returning from Countries they are going to ignore, why do we need to go to the trouble and expense that we are presently having to?..Keep us posted please re BF in Portsmouth.
  6. All the tests/paperwork requirements will be demanded by the carrier (air or sea) but if this story is true then from Monday they will be ignored by Border Force on arrival, in fact you will not even be asked for them.. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/jul/20/border-officials-told-not-to-make-covid-checks-on-green-and-amber-list-arrivals Hopefully there will be someone returning to the UK later this week to confirm BF stance. Its all down to reducing the queues at immigration on return. Must have been something that could`nt hav e been foreseen eh😂
  7. Here is the latest test requirements updated this morning, which says as long as the test complies with certain requirements it can be antigen now although you need PCR for your 2 tests on return to the UK..Hope this helps https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-testing-for-people-travelling-to-england#type-of-test
  8. Looks like one of the French Navy Mistral Class assault ships, from the pictures provided of which they have 3. The name is probably a Marine Traffic mix up
  9. Probably very little but having put most of their eggs in the same basket since 1973 I don`t think they have any other viable options. Hopefully things will get better and the French State will helpout. But the options arn`t good.
  10. Did hear that it was a systems software issue that confined her to port, so your source may well be right
  11. 85% of the CEO's business is passenger traffic and about 90% of that traffic emanates from the UK..Ceasing traffic to the UK is one option he does not have
  12. Well that puts the tin lid on any holiday travel this year to France
  13. I read that article in one if the papers this morning and couldn't take it seriously. It was frankly uncorroborated rumour about a variant that I think someone made up ...far too problematic for essential trade if we were going to do that .It has, apparently, been discussed before but dismissed as virtually possible.
