No they said they would follow the data and if as looks very likely things are going far better than expected then they should follow that date and open things sooner, there was some one on TV from the government yesterday saying that they may only need 2 weeks between the lifting if restrictions now not the 4 they thought, 

It takes at least 3 weeks for any effect on hospital admissions to come through. By giving each stage a 5 week gap you are making sure by opening another sector of economy and life you are not letting it get out of control. 
 

It has been mentioned a few times by government and scientists that come Autumn we may well have to have some kind of restrictions to keep it under control masks and social testing . 21st June will only happen if test events show no increase in hospital admissions and death rates. 
 

We have a vaccine and hopefully it will last 9 months or longer but if it is only good for 6 months then opening up can be stalled by a few weeks as we give people a booster it is all basically a big experiment that no one knows what the end result will be.

Just seen that one of the final rounds of the premier league matches are to be pushed back a week to enable the little darlings to have not one but two matches with up to 10,000 fans present. Bless!

Would imagine the simple thing to do would be pushing the midweek set of fixtures 3 from the end back to the weekend, being fair if the EFL was in the same position I'd expect them to do the same.

We go (or at least try) to Looe once a year, and from there go off to a few different places around Cornwall on daytrips. If you like an area that much, then why not? 

We also try to go to a few different areas at different points in the year (maybe not so much now as we have the dog and baby), but never enjoy it as much as Cornwall/Looe.

Some people prefer to go abroad every year, some stay in the UK, some will go to one place once, and never go back again. From the sounds of it you're in the latter group, that's fine if that's what you prefer.

Also for different people, their needs/requirements will be different, and perhaps a specific area/Park/accommodation is a perfect setup for them. For @Davefevs his requirements will be more specific than for me and my family. 

With that in mind this year we're taking my mum and dad away with us as it will be their 40th anniversary, in the same week it will be our 11th. My dad can't walk far, mum had a stroke a few years ago, and as a result she can't walk far now either, in fact uses a scooter most of the time if she's out for a prolonged amount of time. The place we are going, we all like, all know, and although it's not on the flat exactly, they can still get about the site. We also know that they can cater for their needs as well as ours by having a fully accessible caravan.

That's one reason we usually go there when we do go to Looe.

Nah, that’s ok Dave.  It’s Because we like it!  We do go to other places too.

When I say each year, this will be our third year.  As you know, with Joe, finding suitable accommodation is not easy.  We found a lovely converted barn on a farm just outside Porthtowan, where the owners had made it accessible, level access, wide doors, wet room, etc.  Both kids love it, the farm dog comes in and says hello, it’s nice and relaxing and a good base to head anywhere in Cornwall.  Porthtowan beach, although not the prettiest is fine to get Joe’s beach wheelchair on and off.

For us, there’s something to be said for turning up somewhere, and not having to suss everything out, and the holiday starting the moment you arrive.

It takes a helluva lot of prep (and money) taking Joe’s wheelchair abroad, so we tend to do a big trip every few years, e.g. Oz, LA / Anaheim.

I really hope you are wrong! I can't see justification for why if everyone has been offered vaccine and it works as it is working as it is right now. We know we have to accept x amounts of deaths - people die of all kinds of things and once this has been brought to an acceptable level then we have to accept the risk and carry on else pointless being alive. Might as well just be dead if we aren't willing to risk doing anything except working.

I agree and apparently No flu deaths this year so far....hhhmm smells a bit fishy to me

Trouble is they've extended the end of their season over the last few years and come October they'll all be complaining that they've not had a proper break!

Season can’t be extended for there are only 6 midweeks free for PL till end of season 

4 CL games 
Fa cup semi and final team rearranged fixtures need fitting in. 
 

If Tottenham make Europa league final and FA cup final they may well have 2 play 2 PL games one midweek.

Euros mid June all leagues must end by end of May.

Not sure I see the problem, surely we all want to see the Euro's hosted here (or as much as possible). From what I've heard from people in a position that may know, there's still a very real chance of the Euro's being hosted entirely here (and that particular company are planning for this).

To do so, we'll need to have conducted trial events and assessed the risk
