She is the clear favourite this year. Well you need to start dots petition to get yourself on celebrity big brother in brazil sometime soon page fernanda great having you both here on the late edition. Let's start today with a look at international travel from the uk. The public is waiting for announcements on. Just exactly what is going to be permitted when and how following the release of a traffic light like system to rank countries between green amber and red but today the all party. Parliamentary group on kron virus told the government it should discourage all international leisure travel in order to protect the uk from different variants of the virus Page this is all of course regarding the upcoming day till the seventeenth of may when other people expect these restrictions to be dropped What do you make of this. Shoot there be limits on international travel or who. Which side are you on in this debate. Well it's a it's a very tricky question and of course it's it's not only a question. of six and infrastructure and politics is an emotional question as well. I mean we were having little preamble chat fernando an eye and of course i'm from the uk. And i just get to stay where i'm from. I'm from my home country different situation for you finan of different situation for you call lots of so it's definitely not without Isn't without some new ones. I think this question having said that the seventeenth of may feels very very soon. That's what two weeks time. And you know we're all seeing what's happening across the world. I mean particularly in india. And i think that some of our people have caught the eye on does indian variant. That it's already in the uk that is concerned about how that's going to spread and you know what the biggest concern of this traffic light. System is how it's actually going to operate within the airport. Now i'm not sure if there have been reports from heathrow gatwick. The big kind of. Tom knows within the uk. But how the actually gonna make this happen from a logistical perspective. But it seems like it's going to be pretty tricky. I mean how do you really separate people who've coming from red countries Countries and green countries. How do you make sure that someone from unread country doesn't go to the loo at the exact same time as someone who's from a green country and i'm sure they're thinking about all of this but also it's only two weeks ago. I didn't know just how much you can actually do from a logistics perspective within an apple in this amount of time and also feels like we've spent a lot of this pandemic in the uk on the on the back foot and the vaccines have come along with. Done something proactive. Here's another to do something proactive. Instead of reactive. And i just think maybe we could sit tight for a little bit longer. I mean we're already Kind of you know zero level in terms of rory disappointed. We've just had three months of lockdown. You know. I think we hold on a little bit longer. But what's going to be really difficult is if we're allowed to travel and then it gets taken away from us again. That's going to be really really difficult. Both i think from an emotional perspective but also just how the government gonna police that an make government policy to to respond to people's needs. Well then you risk without a travel system. The traffic light system to be in a situation similar to what happened last year with travel corridors wet people would go to a destination that was within the travel corridor and within a forty eight hour notice.
