AND ANOTHER THING...
■ I work for the NHS and travel to work by public transport. I always wear a mask but others don’t seem to bother. Could people start taking this virus seriously so we might avoid a second wave? Lynne, London
■ On my bus yesterday, ten out of the 13 passengers – or 77 per cent – were not wearing a mask. Is this a record? Tudor Wright, London
■ Stjohn Evans from Bristol thinks the school day should be revamped to teach and prepare children for the working day by continuing until 6pm (MetroTalk, Tue). Right, I’ll try to explain that to my four-year-old niece who is in reception class.
■ Uber is going to run river services, is it (Metro, Thu)? I guess you can’t get lost on a river… Danny, via email
■ Would I be right in thinking that the government, which is supposedly planning to stop notoriously underpaid
NHS staff pay from parking for free at their places of work, is the same government comprised of MPs who can claim generous expenses and enjoy subsidised food and drink in the Palace of Westminster?
Julian Self, Milton Keynes
■ Dean suggests prefab might be the solution to the housing crisis (MetroTalk, Thu). As a child, my friend’s family lived in one – how we loved going to her house.
