It’s a mad world. A mad Britain.
So there are growing concerns over the use of the lateral flow rapid Covid tests. The Government has been pushing them in schools, forcing children to take them several times a week.

Anyone going would have to have a rapid Covid test the same day as the concert. Then the will have to be tested a few days afterwards…..
