Snooker pilot: Crucible Theatre - from 31 July The World Snooker Championships at the Crucible will be the first indoor event with crowds, allowing around 300 supporters in for each session - about a third of the normal capacity.
Audience members will only sit directly next to people who they purchased tickets with and are in the same household groups, meaning there will be a metre of space between people from separate bubbles.
People will have to wear masks whilst walking around but not when they are sat and watching the games
how long will a session at the snooker be? If going to allow people to buy tickets to be in a session of 2hrs plus then that seems a fair compare to see if could use same controls for a basketball game and a max of 2hrs inside for spectators.
On the specific charge that the Scottish scientific officer broke the rules and resigned and the PMs chief adviser broke the rules (then lied to us all) and didn't resign I think the point is unanswerable.
Calderwood had no other choice, she broke the rules and resigned. England's did not. And yes connors, I would say the rUK has handled it better than Bungling BoJo.
Besides Sturgeon has been clear with the Scottish public whereas Boris and his government are making it up as they go long. Boris tried herd immunity but that didn't work out so well and it suddenly went away. The government's lockdown was undermined with Dominic Cummings excuse that was akin to saying "Do what you like"
You mean the full uk initial approach was herd immunity.
Seems to be sturgeon can do no wrong and the scottish press lap it up. Its been a cluster **** by the full of the UK. All quick for a 1 UK approach when shutting down but opening up in scotland has been just as much of a farce than the rest of the uk.
Also calderwood was defended massively by the snp high horses. Sounds familiar. Only difference was she left soon whereas cummings didnt.

I agree Youngrocks. Sturgeon has kicked the issue around like a political football and to be fair run rings around Boris. However much like being in opposition to the gov it’s very easy to snipe away from the sidelines or in hindsight. We do it all the time on this site.
Bottom line is it’s a massive challenge. No country has the solution and we’re in it for the long haul.
Massive credit to BE for holding their nerve today and not knee jerking on their decision to take us to level 2. It’s not without risk but frankly if not now when??
I would prefer that matter like this on critical national importance were handled by the UK gov but that’s just me. I believe in the Union...
As Ben Elton used to say”Ooh a little bit of politics there!”
