Nah, too insular (IMO). Come to Ireland. Once this covid thing is done, hopefully without much further harm to people, we'll get back to being a great place to live. I personally recommend Cork. The way we think is this: the real map of Ireland has 2 zones: Cork, and not-Cork. 'Sure, why would  you want to live anywhere else, boy?' 😁

I have a friend who did a post-doc at Cork university. I did enjoy it when I visited. Could do a lot worse.

Ok, I give up. Can someone explain the rationale for the latest antics? I can't... My 'weird-shit-o-meter' has leaped up a few.notches. Is Johnson incapable of rational decision making?

Internal borders, criminals on the loose – this is the utopia we’ve dreamed of. Who needs fresh vegetables anyway?
