  • in reply to: Should London be quarantined? #110368

    Being a thick Londoner (no offence taken ) I’ve not witnessed any other thickos purposely not following the guidance since the lockdown other then on the tubes, but the mayor of London cut trains at peak times and still expected all the front line staff to get to work, remember the tube is the best way to get around London. I did see Ben neves and snowden packed over the weekend I doubt many were thick Londoners. Morons are everywhere sad to say even disabled folk going out in the sun in their cars. London was bound to be hit hard because London hospitals were the first to take cases from all over the south. plus the population in London is massive, with two of the biggest airports.

     

    50% of Tube staff are either sick or self-isolating.  No choice but to cut services.

    Those face masks are only any use if you have the virus.

     

     

    My one protects from the virus. It’s a FFP3 class respirator which stops airborne virus and is recommended by the World Health Organisation.

    That’s a free service in England, they don’t do it here.  Everyone gets free prescriptions here though.

    Went to collect my ‘script from the pharmacy yesterday morning and there was a queue of 50 people outside.  The pharmacy have started operating a 2 in 2 out system, so that there will not be close contact like when it is normally crammed.  Returned later in the day at 10 minutes before opening and the queue was now about 80 people.  My ‘script is just sitting there on the shelf but I cannot wait there for the amount of time it’ll take to get in.

    I’ve made my own hand sanitizer also.  I’ve got the World Health Organisation instructions for medical units worldwide to make their own.  Obviously it has to be made to scale, I didn’t fancy making 50 litres. 😉

     

    A friend of mine works as a professional in a private hospital and told me that as of last week they had locked down one ward with patients and 2 staff members have been sent home to self isolate.

    They said that they had been liasing with the NHS and were told the NHS will be in chaos if the expected numbers come to fruition.

    Britain has one of the lowest amount of hospital beds per head in the developed world.  China built loads of prefabricated hospitals overnight to be able to treat people.  Our ICU bed numbers are tiny compared to what is needed.

    Lexus UX Hybrid has a book price of £29k. The F Sport model is £33k.

    The CT Hybrid starts at £26k.

    The IS Hybrid starts at £33k

    The ES Hybrid Luxury Saloon starts from £35k

    As an ex Lexus owner I’d be really pleased if by some miracle they ended up on the scheme.

    Do most people tend to use RSM to deal with the whole claim or have anyone used an accident management company?  I know that most of them are rip-off merchants, but there are some that are good.

     

    My initial point was the fact that people have to wait from 4pm on a Saturday till 8am on Monday to get to speak to anyone.  What if I needed a suitable vehicle in between those times?  I did have somewhere I had to be today, but have had to cancel now as there is a possibility that the chassis might have been affected as the car didn’t feel quite right and am not prepared to take the risk.

     

    A friend of mine who had a non-fault accident contacted the other person’s insurance company and they had a suitable hire car for him delivered to his house 4 hours after the call ended.  If their own insured driver is at fault it makes good sense for them to deal direct with you and keep you happy as they have a handle on costs i.e. Not having to pay £3000 per week for car hire from a management company for while your car is being assessed and/or being repaired. His car was a Ford Kuga, his loan car was a BMW X3.  They were excellent at keeping him up to date about everything. Sometimes your own insurance company lag well behind service levels that you get from other parties.

     

    Does anyone have any incidents of claiming through RSM and whether they were any good or not?

    Just went out to the car and due to the back door being smashed in, the car is not waterproof and all the inside is wet.  Anyone got any ideas as to who I can get to help.

    It’s a pity that the R-Design Tech isn’t available in petrol on motability. It’s slightly cheaper than the diesel and is available to buy in the 1.5l and 2.0l variations.

    I owned a car which had disabled tax exempt status which I kept for another 6 months after I got my Motability car which they taxed, no problems.

    ‘In fact there are no factory fit optional extras – only dealer fit stuff like parking sensors and trim enhancements.’

     

     

    I was told exactly the same thing.

    Yes, the Outlander comes in two specs; Design, which is fairly basic and Exceed, which is top of the line.  So easy to keep a few weeks stock. They told me that accessories are fitted at the dealership.

    It’s probably because it’s not a totally new model, but just a facelift with some improvements.

    I remember that the Toyota Rav4 Hybrid was about the largest size suitable for a hoist.  Better than most petrol or diesel vehicles.

    So you’ve got nothing then. All I’m asking for is for you to back up your rhetoric. I always do lots of research from all sides and come to a conclusion based on facts and probabilities. Another lie, or doesn’t he even understand his own policy. Possibly even both. Under Johnson’s revised withdrawal agreement, Northern Ireland will continue to follow the EU customs code, which includes customs declarations and other formalities. But answering questions after a speech at a crisp factory in Northern Island that was captured on video and went viral, the PM said: “There will be no forms, no checks, no barriers of any kind. You will have unfettered access.”

    Tell us how.  Try and stick to facts or proper analysis rather than slurs or Daily Heil soundbites.

    I see that ‘The man of the people’ Johnson is hiding from people again so that he doesn’t get asked any questions.  Visited a school and all the 6th formers got banned from leaving their common room and talking to him.

     

    He can’t speak for more than 10 seconds without lying.  He also doesn’t even understand his own policies.

    I really wish they had Lexus on Motability.  As an ex owner I rate them exceptionally high and the standard kit is excellent.  You won’t have to spend £1000s on extras like you do with most other ‘luxury’ brands.  Best dealerships going also, they can’t do enough for you.

    Michael – That is the position concerning dash cams, I don’t know if that is the same with reversing cameras.
