Yes I heard something about one. It's pretty much back to normal here. Masks worn in shops, moving around in bars, transport but entertainment back on

Not sure if it materialised but it was called the Beach Cabin and overlooks las vistas beach. I watched a few games in the Queen Vic so assume they still drink in there
Good to hear it's picked up business wise and have a great holiday

Exactly.

Had exactly the same experience with Expert Medicals myself.

You're paying good money for a reference number is essentially what it boils down to, which is why it's all a massive con.

The only thing endangered is our wallets.
I go away again soon and I'm thinking just bang my old code on the return locator form and see if it works.
Might as well if the cunts aren't even sending the tests out.
On another note,why has nobody been in touch asking why we haven't done tests(even though 2 of us did)?

Because there is absolutely no link to the codes, the tests and a government checking system, it's a big tory money making scheme for their mates.

I came out to Poland in the summer, paid £36 for a day two test with Expert Medicals which was there on my arrival. Did the test and sent it off. Nothing.

After a week I phoned them and they sent another test out which eventually came back negative.

I have to do two lateral flow tests a week for my work and have done throughout the pandemic.

I am out in Poland again and I can't use the old code, (presumably,) as Expert Medicals have been removed from the list of approved crooks.

So I have purchased a 'click and collect' service for £10 for a date two weeks after I return and will not even bother going from London to Peterborough to do it. I have the code I need and that will placate the Government's Locator Form. Meanwhile I will continue to do the twice a week LFTs.

If i can't get it on in the apartment I usually pop down the Parque La Plaz strip. The Brahms and list usually show City games even though they're rags. There is a City bar in Los Christianos but a bit far out. Most bars have boards outside showing what games are on.
Yh the giddy goose and dorados both showing game Saturday

Believe it or not, Expert Medical codes continue to be accepted for the forms despite them being removed from the approved list.

Nothing makes any sense with these idiots running the show.

As I understand it you can put any combination of numbers and letters to represent a booking code on the passenger locator form when coming back and it’s not checked. I wouldn’t advise it but have heard that’s what

I was not asked for proof of the booking of the test earlier this year when returning but was expecting to.

get yourself away if you can. Well worth it
