    you use lovely Ms.Katherine ( omitted- the Bolshoi ballet) video as a shot for this topic . why don’t you tell the world about other Britons who are in Russia?

    Vaccination was the start of a return to normality. Accept no substitutes……….

      If you have had Covid recently then taking the vaccine won’t achieve anything (nor will it be harmful either).

      In any case, we are going to have to learn to live with the virus since it won’t go away.
