    New Bristol Ikea was so popular when opened that they made people with beards wait a few days.
    Quite right too.
    Disney started it!
    Worth googling ikea beard ban...it is all out there.

    More Towers-related shenanigans occurred in Parliament today, as an MP jokingly asked Jacob Rees-Mogg if he’d ever been, to which he responded that he took his sister many years ago: https://order-order.com/2020/06/02/from-ivory-towers-to-alton-towers/

    MP Karen Bradley also apparently reeled off some Nemesis & Oblivion facts later in the debate!

    I never knew that the government had the park at the forefront of their minds like that!

    Sorry @Benzin; I just thought it was interesting to see so many MPs refer to the park today.

    And to be fair, Karen Bradley's constituency is Staffordshire Moorlands, which includes Towers.

    It is my understanding that under the new voting procedures, MPs will be able to purchase one of several different fastrack packages. There will of course be a separate RAP queue for those MPs that need it, although it is thought that any member of the public and their dog may actually be able to use this queue and vote in Parliament. There were rumours of single voter queues but looks like these have been scrapped.

    They removed it,
    In short it's Warwick castle demonstrating new procedures like temperature checks.

    It would seem that AstraZeneca (the company behind the Oxford vaccine) recently began conducting vaccine tests in Brazil due to the disease waning in Europe: https://apple.news/AZXDXbNd6SsiMi5_TzeFtYQ

    I
    t would seem that they are very keen to do whatever they can to reach that target!

    Just speaking to an elderly relative and she was asking about social distancing for when she can finally go out. She raised an interesting point I never thought about, she asked about if she was still able to attend some concert in September. Now I’m pretty sure in thinking that concerts and venues won’t be able to reopen for a long time as you can’t safely social distance inside.

    Concert I was due to go to this month been moved to next year.

    Mrs was due to go to one in May, pencilled in for October.

    Theatre has been moved to next year as well.

    It will be very dependent on the situation come that time.

    Lots of people protesting today for Black Lives Matter. There doesn't seem to be much social distancing from what I can see so God knows what that will do to the figures in two weeks time...
