Ed: like golf courses?
Journo: more agricultural
Ed: like an estate?
Journo: like a field
Ed: with planning permission?
Journo: with donkeys.
Ed: er…

iPhone : It’s essential staff are safe, and it’s essential kids (especially vulnerable ones) go back to school. Those two things are in tension so it’s hard as hell to get this right. Anyone saying it’s simple should be ignored.…
