I RECENTLY cancelled a long planned trip on the West Highland rail line, with hotel stays in Oban and Mallaig. This was to be a family reunion.

The advice to give up non-essential travel seemed to include my holiday plans so I did the “right” thing.

Then I read that Prince Charles had beetled off to Balmoral. What?

There was no room to self-isolate at Frogmore Cottage, Kensington Palace, Windsor Castle?

And they wonder why people are cynical.
