Well done Sadiq Khan

Done the right thing though.
You've got them paedos, fashion victims, enablers, 'we mustn't judge' losers all afraid of their own shadows stepping on to a moving train and breathing each other's breakfast and burps. I guess if one of them gets a cold, they'll sue someone.
Funny how people who wet their pants in fear at having to wear a piece of cloth for 5 minutes or having a sore arm for 24 hours accuse others of timidity😂

I find that wearing a facemark for more than a few minutes causes deep discomfort, this is a consequence of my reduced heart function due to illness.

I could choose to claim exception but I prefer to avoid any situation that would require me to do so, I will wear a mask to pop into a shop for a few moments but major shopping expeditions are left to Mrs AFC. I wait in the car and assist when she emerges with the weeks shop.

At the beginning of next month I am scheduled at Charing Cross to see my oncologist, I have not had an 'in person' checkup for around 18 months so consider this very important. We shall be staying in West London and getting to the hospital requires a 6 stop Tube journey each way, something that I do not think that I could do masked.

Probably means that I will have to drive, a real pain as parking in the area is a nightmare, expensive too as I may have to be there for much of the day (scans, bloods etc).

Don't believe the hype, theres plenty of people in London going about their business without muzzles on.

Hope everything goes well for you at Charing Cross.

I hope so, have not, for one reason or another, been in London for a while. Interestingly, I have been told that there is no need to wear a mask in the oncology department but one will be required in the rest of the hospital. Go figure.
Hope everything goes well for you at Charing Cross.
Thank you for the kind thoughts.

I am about four years post chemo and radiotherapy, three and a half post surgery. The effects of the treatment remain quite debilitating, but it is livable with. This will be my first visit since my more recent heart issues, interesting to see what they think of that and, hopefully, get an all clear.

I'd get a taxi if I were you.

Very possible, but still required to wear a mask. Quicker than a tube though, so less time 'masked up'.

I know I am whinging a bit but wearing a mask for any length of time leaves me a bit unsteady. Given that my condition has already caused me to blackout, fall and break my right shoulder, I am a bit wary.

Your problem with the mask is unfortunate, of course, but I was thinking more that going on the tube exposes you unnecessarily to loads of people vs. one taxi driver. Bad enough at the best of times but with rising infection rates it seems very unappealing. I think attending any hospital facility via public transport is a bit iffy personally.

Come to think of it if it's just 6 stops why not walk? Or cycle? Bets ways to get around London by far.

Anyway hope it goes well.

You would count as exempt so don’t need to wear one. You should be happy that the vast majority will be masked as there’s less chance of you catching something.

Not re
Better if the vast majority were locked up, not allowed to socialize, quarantined, tested and locked up again. I guess in your world, he could be even happier then. 😀😀
Wow how to twist words which were meant to be helpful.
And you thought it was funny as well.

Fairly long out of town stops sadly. Nowhere near fit enough either to walk or cycle, I'm not an invalid but a couple of miles is my limit, need proper rest after that, my heart simply does not pump enough blood to let me go further.

The trouble with the mask is that it further restricts the flow of oxygen into my lungs and hence into the blood, it is uncomfortable in an odd way and can make me a bit unsteady.

I am not remotely troubled by the thought of infection, it really is the effect that the mask has. I was hoping that we would be all clear of this by now. Suggested that I was unwell and therefore exempt a few times but it has got confrontational on occasion.

Anyway, looks like we have a solution, Mrs AFC will drop me off, then drive up to Westfield Shepherds Bush, potter round the shops and wait for my call. Bit difficult as I could be anytime from a couple of hours to most of the day.

Could be an expensive trip to the hospital if you take too long.

Gate boy, that's what you lot used to be called. Americans called you "cisses".
Then again you're a troll and you live off reaction, got a clue who you are actually !
You do seem a bit obsessed . I couldn’t give a toss who you are and hope never to meet such an obnoxious man

Thank you, very kind. The residual issues from the cancer seem under control, be good to have it confirmed.

I know, mrs AFC is a remarkable woman and more than pays her way. I am not in the slightest worried about what she might spend.

I reality I am more concerned with a rather nice convertible in a showroom in Poole, she does give it 'the eye' whenever we pass by.
