Most suggest interrupting hols to deal with👇 based on knowledge/acceptance of . But this is NOT how most other professions work. Why can’t we design academiclife so that we don’t need to work during hols, maternity/parental/bereavement leave etc?

I’m so sick of this ‘The British People’ nonsense. It’s inflammatory and divisive and also errant vacuous nonsense with no meaning in a multi-party democracy. The phrase should be banned from political discourse.

Three drownings or near-drownings have hit my timeline today. Before I was a doctor, I was a lifeguard. Posting again this brilliant article on how to spot drowning.

Beaches of Harris are awesome. Doggy loved. Good dinner at Anchorage restaurant and great cakes and coffee at Skoon Gallery (bias declared but still awesome). Conclusion: Aye, would do it again but charging network starting to be outstripped by demand - which is good but...

Amount of rain: Return was 220 miles of torrential rain and flooding and driving across fords and roads blocked. Pronominal amount of water falling!

Social Distancing: Cafes and Restaurants were hit and miss as to being open but when open staff were fantastic. Our campsite and hotel staff also good. Other customers less good - often maskless when moving around. Ferry was bizarre but good. Missed my CalMac curry though.

Network: Did it's job but caused anxiety. Great locations but often only 1 type2. Tyndrum station down; Fort William Morrisons only 1 of 4 ports working and in use by PHEV; in Uig one car blocked the only type2 all night. Not reassuring. Way home smoother.

Car: The Zoe is so lovely and easy to drive on Highland roads. Instant power whenever and as much as you need, no hassle with gears, lovely smooth easy. Range and if it wasn't for our anxiety it would been one charge on route from Paisley to Harris.

A growing global problem, “fealty to a dangerous strain of individualism” and anti-intellectualism just when experts and society are needed most.
