Not sure what the political situation is at the moment.

Its classic of Bojo behaviours and said its a sop read as wrote - Not that the ERG, Lord Sumption and their Talk Radio mates are advocators; they are anything but , however listen to the narrative of many of the right wing (modern working classes) and xenophobic close the borders rhetoric, this is designed to sooth their ears.

Eswatini (Swaziland) has a small but vibrant expat community in South London; however !

Others (with no political power or influence) have been calling on government to introduce genuine quarantine systems for months and months landing on deaf ears. Indeed the government knows full well they have a challenge due to massive understaffing in the border agencies right now.

Realistically ALL arrivals should be quarantined properly or don’t bother .

Don’t infer from my writings I am some sort of COVID denier that would far from the truth - My own niece a healthy 23 year old has been suffering Long COVID symptoms for 9 months , and my wife is a nurse on the Front line in the NHS working in North London.

My criticism isn’t the red list per say either, no more rather the political spin on this shortly to be imposed compulsory scheme delivered to the populous as something it isn’t -a fundamental closure of the frontiers.

No transit via Dubai from India and no onward connections as with a few exceptions little inbound passenger traffic allowed at the moment.

You realise pretty much anyone flying in, even if not on the red list has to be tested before departure, then pay for two more tests while quarantining (£210) and if they did test to release would pay and be tested again. That’s 4 tests in a week. Yet I go to Tesco and half the store are face mask exempt, touching everything and having a chat.

We now have some of the toughest rules in place. As for your attempt to pin it on the “right wing” it’s anything but. Most of the right wingers are calling for things to be opened up.

It's no wonder that you have had so many cases. I can't remember when I last saw anyone in our supermarkets not wearing a mask, even quite young children.

In Oban.....Face masks are mandatory here in Tenerife when in supermarkets and are policed by security guards, so people do obey. Resulting in decreasing infection rates on the statistics. Now back to Manchester folks.....

What I mean is, is it possible for people to arrive in Doha, from a red list country and then travel on to UK? Not necessarily using air travel.

From todays Independent:

Manchester airport, currently the second-busiest in the UK after Heathrow, is excluded.

A spokesperson for Manchester said: “We continue to work closely with the government to understand how the managed quarantine policy might be implemented, and the process for handling ‘red list’ passengers while travelling through our airport.”

If you somehow are referring to a land bridge of sorts well that’s what the declaration is to cover I suppose even through Paris Brussels and across the Channel. Risk it and the penalty is rather heavy isn’t it ?

You are committing an offence with a maximum penalty of ten years irrespective of the routes via third or even fourth countries.

I assume they would have to be taken to the BHX hotel - as it is the nearest ?

In my local supermarket I rarely see anyone without a mask, and security are stopping people at the entrance who dont have masks to put them on.

Same here - I've seen one couple, and they stuck out like a sore thumb.

Navpi must be pleased with the recent increase in cargo flights from Manchester too
