Yet our glorious press is trumpeting them as dates set in stone...

The Dumbarse of the Day award yesterday went to Ben Bradshaw (worra surprise) when he asked if the 5-week protocol could be shortened, presumably thus ignoring any data. He hadn't got it at all...

We started testing pupils today in a bit of a dry run in preparation for school fully re-opening in two weeks. We currently have 23 pupils in Year 7 and it took nearly a hour to process them all. Given that we have 800 pupils in school and they will need to be tested twice a week I think it is going to be a real struggle if not impossible.

The main problem is actually the registration process. Pupils are not meant to have mobile phones in school so they all had to register via computer. We actually had a number of pupils who didn't know what their home address was and then there was confusion over which mobile phone number they should use to get the results.

I'm looking forward to see what guidance Gavin Williamson is going to give to help schools deal with the inevitable bumps in the road.

Busy tackling “wokeness”, costs no money and provides easy headlines.

As for media it was dangerous this morning, problem is people have gone ahead and started planning stuff now, he is gambling if he thinks the 21st is the end of it all.

Earlier Guardian article:
By the time he finally gave up the column when he became foreign secretary, Johnson was paid £275,000 a year, about £4.80 a word.
Fuuuuu....
And most writers starting out now are expected to do it for the experience.

See those public schools that award places to "rugby prospects".
There's this 11 year old who's 6 foot 6, 17 stone and still growing.
There's a massive rush to sign him up, due diligence goes out the window.
The school that signs him then discover he's still wearing nappies.

That's how you get Ben Bradshaw.
