I flew back from Lisbon in September, about 12 hours after the reintroduction of quarantine restrictions for those coming from Portugal. I suspect that I was one of very few who filled in the requisite form - there was nothing on the flight or at the airport to so indicate and even fewer who actually observed the quarantine. Nobody checked.
An example, I'm sure that those wanting to remove the statue of Cecil Rhodes would love to use this quotation.
"A general belief seems to prevail in the Colony that the Indians are little better, if at all, than savages or the Natives of Africa. Even the children are taught to believe in that manner, with the result that the Indian is being dragged down to the position of a raw K*****".
Why don't they? Because the quote is not from Rhodes at all (by contrast, Rhodes funded the newspaper of the organisation that was the forerunner of the ANC). The quote is actually from Mahatma Gandhi. Where is the campaign to remove his statue?
The rest of your post seems to confuse correlation and causation. I wouldn't doubt that "pubs, bars, restaurants and cafes as making up 14.5% of all common locations where infected people had been", I dare say that a lot of them had watched the news on television and ate carrots too. What you need to show is that infected people are selectively more likely to have been at these places.
Incidentally, neither education nor leisure & travel occupations are particularly high in the ONS statistics for COVID mortality by occupation (of people aged 20-64). https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommuni...
What interests me more is how much this thing cost and who is ultimately picking up the bill?
in Article XII allowed the Parliament of Northern Ireland to secede from the jurisdiction of the Irish Free State. If the British did the "carving" it was under procedures agreed by Arthur Griffith and Michael Collins.
