British tourists arriving in Mallorca.

Holidaymakers and those hoping to see their families earlier had their travel plans decimated when the government moved France to a new category, "amber plus" Sky News reported this morning.

It meant even those who are double-jabbed will have to quarantine for 10 days after returning to the UK.

There's now speculation Greece and Spain could follow France onto the "amber plus" list, although the government has not confirmed this.

If ministers did press ahead with the measure, Labour analysis has estimated 5,857,558 people face the prospect of last-minute quarantine requirements.

Even us with properties in Majorca will not be visiting this year as the progress on vaccination in Majorca and the EU has been pedestrian to say the least. Sanchez the prime minister of Spain today promised 7.5 million vaccination doses to be given away to poor countries. He does not have any spare doses and cannot even vaccinate his own people. Hopefully people will remember this failing at the next election, until then join the rest of us having a pleasant UK holiday this year.

It's only a matter of time now till travel is once again brought to a halt. We were due over at the start of August but decided a few weeks ago to change it to next year and looking at the way things are heading I'm glad we did so. This pandemic still has a bit to go yet unfortunately.

Not surprising, this is far from ended until everyone is vaccinated . Certainly in UK and Europe. Time for Vaccine passports in order to travel. And shaking up Spain's judiciary plus less travel from the peninsula.
