    Default Spain trip worked out well

    Until the government decided to withdraw the air bridge. Nice one.....
    Yes I was there at the time - some very unhappy people.

    Although see my other post about exemptions.....

    Its all a complete mess. My client, as expected, is being pretty useless. Like I lot of clients I guess, they struggle to realise that contractors aren't employees of theirs at all and any decision regarding eligibility needs to come from an "employer".

    Would be easy for those of you via limited company because you're the employer. In my case, the umbrella company bottled it and just phoned my client who was not happy.

    Flew back into Birmingham last night - number of people on the plane hadnt done the form online. No internet, no smartphone etc and were told the forms could be completed on arrival. Ummm nope. No-one around to take the forms and border control passport people were denying it was their responsibility. So people just walked through, got their bags and went home. A very well working system here - NOT.

    You do realise that a few weeks ago the government listed spain as one of their quarantine free countries, dont you? And FCo advice was changed accordingly....

    OK its changed back now... Im hardly going to affect the population of birmingham by visiting an island with no cases.

    Given the volume of the advice you give, then it's going to be good advice every now and then.

    You should have been aware like most people on here this government is a shower of tulip and shouldn't be believed.
