got a trip to Spain booked for mid sept using the ferry to santander, problem's going to be if Brittany ferries open the route up but its still not advised to travel I'll probably lose my fare as it will be me cancelling.
Take careful note of the T&Cs, and talk to them if that happens - without wishing to jinx you Brittany Ferries have always been pretty good about refunding in the past (pre-Covid days) if we've had to change plans.

Brittany are being fair about it with cancellations etc. You won't be out of pocket.
We already have ours booked so just waiting to see.
If we can't go, we'll just transfer the crossing to next year

I'm guessing you didn't buy a "flexi" ticket, in which case you only lose 25%.

I'm just vouching for people to be informed and stay safe, these are WHO stats I don't understand why one would get mad at reality,
I do not control the virus.

Sorry if my dark humor ruffled you, I thought it's better to laugh at it than cry.

Anyway be safe I'm not here to pour oil on fire.

Also remember this thread was started by someone in a different jurisdiction to the UK. It's a mighty piss off factor when people assume Ireland is part of the UK - Don't even go there.

This numbers game is so flawed in reality. The MSM claimed that earlier this week the UK had more deaths (Wed?) in 1 day than all the other EU countries combined ... but fact checkers pointed out had our UK numbers been worked out using the Spainish system of reporting our 300+ would have only been 20. :182:

... and I'd be very interested to know the TRUE number of deaths in China, not the official propaganda number. :211:

Was talking generaly because arguably most people here are Brits, I damn well know not to call Irish or Scotts English.

Again just be careful wherever you'd go, statistics are questionable sure, but I didn't make them and WHO is supposed to be factual, more than my butcher really.
If some don't want to believe them and get perspective they are free, just don't shoot the messenger.

China always will be in propaganda unfortunately, so might never know.

Touchy subject alright 😂, at least now we can travel a bit further in our country now.
