Warm Enough?

Great Britain, where it is either 10 below freezing, or 100 Fahrenheit. 

GB is currently "enjoying" a heatwave with the mercury hovering around the 90+ mark.  This may not sound exceptional to many in warmer climates, but you need to remember that in the UK where it is "never hot" or it "never snows", not only do we not possess a single snow plough, but we are still waiting for Air Conditioning to be invented.

This little island of ours crammed with 68 million people is melting.  It was with some relief that we could all enjoy a dip in the Olympic sized swimming pool yesterday in London City.  We also broke out the fans to keep the visitors nice and cool, and what a fun time we all had, talking for hours, without hardly a moan about the weather (he lied).

Come chill your heels here whenever you wish.  Drink plenty (of water!) and bask in the sunshine.

Freedom to infect?

I cannot let this 'go', without passing comment..

Today is the so called "Freedom Day", in England.

It is the day where social distancing is no longer required, facemasks are no longer mandatory and all venues, clubs, pubs, restaurants, sports events, require no additional measures to protect people against Covid-19.

This reckless action is set against the backdrop of a new surge of infections, whilst our new Health Secretary Sajid Javid, who has been in post for just three weeks, is currently out of circulation with Covid.

Our Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, our Chancellor of the Exchequer and our Health Minister are all now missing out on "freedom day", as they need to self-isolate with many other government officials in Whitehall.

What kind of madness is this, where we throw out our protection, just as the third wave grabs Great Britain by the throat?  

Is this herd immunity, or the acceptance of collateral damage, where a certain amount of the population is considered expendable?

It is widely considered that in abandoning face masks, large group management, hand sanitizers and social distancing, that the government can encourage this third wave to strike at a more convenient time, i.e. during the summer school holidays, instead of September when everyone is back to work.

The world's press are quite rightly aghast at our actions, especially as this will almost certainly lead to many more mutations as infection rates soar.  We already know that the Delta variant is partially resistant to vaccines and all that is required now, is for the strain to improve upon itself and become fully resistant and we will be right back to where we started 18 months ago.

Of course we need to be able to move around and enjoy the summer as much as possible, but is it really such a hardship to keep ourselves and others safe by using the most basic protection, such as a mask?

The Government seeks to steer the path of a virus that they do not understand and it is our health that they are gambling with.

Wear a mask, keep your distance when possible, wash your hands often.  This virus does not respect the boundaries of your social life and this is going to get a lot worse as the virus evolves and mutates due to an irresponsible dereliction of duty by the English Government.

Drink Plenty

The heat was phenomenal in Old Blighty and is set to be even hotter today and tomorrow.  Keep yourself hydrated, turn the aircon up, and come paddle in the pool at London City!

Last night, 70's dancers, Pan's People, took to the stage and gyrated to sounds of disco era 'pop' groups, performing their original hits from the 1970s, in the 2020's.

The bands and Pan's People have aged extremely well considering their limelight is almost 50 years old!

We hope you enjoyed a nostalgic night of entertainment, which of course all of you are far too young to remember the first time around!

The weekend continues with Substation today at 11am SL time (7pm UK) and Katty drunk as a skunk on the beach afterwards with the World's End crew, from 1pm SL.

The Night of 100 Disco Stars!

Join us today as we celebrate the music of over 100 disco stars, performed by Pan's People!

Pan's People was a British female dance troupe most commonly associated with the BBC chart show, Top of the Pops, until the mid-1970s.  They appeared on many other TV shows in the UK and elsewhere in Europe and performed in nightclub cabaret. Due to their weekly exposure on British television the group acquired a high profile. The 'classic' line-up which existed from 1972 to 1974 is still widely recognised today.

Join us for an unforgettable night of leggy dancers and top tunes and disco singers of yesteryear re-enacting their hits as of 2021.  Let's hope they can all still carry a tune! 

The Party begins at 12pm SL (8pm UK)
