“But I was flying with a negative test and everything was in place for a safe holiday with my family.”

“Had so much goodwill and respect for each other. Joined together and marched on through this.

It’s made me see the senseless year of neglect of Government rules at our borders… other countries have done it before us. Why has it taken us so long?

“It’s made me see this morning hearing it on the news the senseless year of neglect of Government rules at our borders… other countries have done it before us. Why has it taken us so long?”

She concluded the lengthy post by saying: “No one seems to have an answer… or be questioning it?!! Surely this could have prevented the increase of the spread?!!! #Staysafe and try and keep patient and calm despite the lack of common sense being afforded to us.”
