1. Really, Google the meat processing plant where 3 employees have died and how does the employer react, no ppe for staff and only statutory sick pay. So the poor souls died working for minimum wage. Makes you proud to be British.

They won't quarantine and they won't be fined. Meanwhile all the people who were going to travel to the UK for tourism will be put off doing so, thinking that the rules will be enforced. The virus will spread and genuine tourists will be discouraged. Hope this helps.

This policy is far too crude: it should take account of the likely risks posed by someone entering the UK. Visiting some foreign countries is far less risky than visiting certain parts of the UK. I seems to be more a political move (the danger is coming from outside), than one based on science.

It's all well & good the Priti saying we shouldn't be booking holidays. Families have already booked & paid for their holidays long before covid 19, they don't do last minute. They will not be allowed to cancel or claim due to quarantine on return to the UK as the holiday will be deemed to be available. There's going to be a lot of very unhappy people losing thousands of pounds with no redress.

The system that would work and is needed for future pandemics is for passengers to be swabbed while waiting to board and the test done at the point of embarkation. The test results can be sent ahead. If anyone on the flight is positive then all go into quarantine on landing, otherwise all are clear..

So book your holiday leaving from Dublin, fly out to Dublin (no quarantine) onto your holiday, back to Dublin and back to UK (no quarantine). Thats assuming of course you don't mind flying in a giant test tube full of god knows what. FWIW I won't be doing that but it shows how some can sidestep the rules if they so desire. I also suspect Ireland's tourist trade could see a healthy upturn!

So we have a quarantine that excludes France but then doesn’t but is a quarantine apart from certain professions and countries that perhaps excludes those from low risk countries so not really a quarantine is it, that there will be non existent checks on due to impossible to police with a threat of a paltry fine if your caught, which you won’t be and about 3 months late coming up with this mess.

So returning from the Canaries where there Is virtually no cases they're worried I'm going to infest the UK which due to lax and delayed measures is riddled with cases? Thanks for that.

The second wave of this disease is going to kill hundreds of thousands in the U.K. This government and all who voted for it, are accountable! Hang your heads in shame.

@41 Miss jones "The second wave of this disease is going to kill hundreds of thousands in the U.K. " Better emerge with a healthy economy and a population of 65.5 million than have 66 million and a bankrupt economy. Destroying the economy to stave off an illness which targets the very old and vey sick. Absolute madness.

85 Columbo Nice comment I take you don’t mind if your parents and elderly relatives are in the casualties as long as the economy ( and you ) are ok. You go enjoy yourself this weekend don’t bother about social distancing Covid only kills the old and infirm

85 Allowing a 2nd wave great Why you most welcome to it because 1.China found that all survivors had their immune system destroyed by 30"% Which means they are now seriously debilitated For the rest of their existence along with a serious risk that such will be shortened 2.At Dundee a lung specialist was shocked to his core when he viewed the very serious scaring to the lungs of survivors

Might as well kill the aviation industry now. So haluage drivers can come and go as they want whether have the virus or not. Why not airbridges or testing at the airport like they do in Austria. Can be done, as already put forward by Airlines UK.

"Quarantine plans for UK arrivals unveiled" Are there no plans to quarantine arrivals who are veiled? They would be sensible ones having their faces covered coming here at present with the Boris Bug still rampaging out of control.

we won't get a second wave. the reason we won't get a second wave, is because the Gov't will lay out a definition of what a second wave would consist of, and then say that criteria/definition didn't happen.

Why the 8th of June ? Why not now ? Why not 3 months ago ? How could a government be this incompetent?

90. Posted bySeeEagle92on How could a government be this incompetent? ---- It is deliberate. Just think about the result - 50,000 and counting deaths - but possibly 50,000 less benefit claimants. As most at risk are BAME, that is a lot less immigrants. Meanwhile, Quantitate Easing benefits the richest 5% the most. Rees-Mogg & co must be very happy.

I get that with the virus rampant there was no point doing this in March / April. Should have done it in February though, no excuses just plain wrong.

So when are arrivals going to get the option of a test instead of 14 days? What about arrivals from countries with few or zero cases (that actually got their acts in order two months ago e.g. Iceland NZ Denmark etc? The govt seems to be actioning this in reverse to what was required. due to go to Iceland for hols and am waiting for uk clearance. Iceland is ok after 15th June, uk starts 8th

Like everything else this government is doing it is 3 months too late - We really need to start thinking about what the plan is for the next 6 months not what we "should have" done.

This is elitism. Some people are special and others not. Oh sorry forgot standard Tory dogma. People keep voting for this so no RWA will criticise this as that would be HYPOCRISY and they never do that do they. Leopards never their spots.

People arriving at airports etc are required to self-isolate including, according to official advice,in hotels. As hotels are currently closed and we are not allowed family contact, where are they supposed to go?
