Red Refugee, HMPSofitel, Heathrow
Today was a much better day with my highlight being a visit to the toilet where I DIDNT have diarrhoea, yipeee.
It really has been a drag with everything we have tried doing to keep being sick hasn’t been fun but today let’s hope we’ve turned a corner.
Pete am I had some great news from Danielle (Healthy Human Danielle) who has worked with Rab to replace some of our gear that we gave to the HAPs, that’s very kind of them and we look forward to using it whilst doing our demonstrations and presentations, I certainly know Pete is looking forward to it……
I’ve attached a couple of images today which really sum up this very poor attempt to successfully manage a hotel.
There are no hotel staff left on the peripheral just standing on reception following a very scripted process, all other staff are hired in security doing the very minimum that they need to, to get by.
Everywhere you look there is a high viz best with a security guard on his phone, yes 2 interesting points here ALL security I have seen are male, male between 18-25, And everyone of them is glued to there phone either texting, calling or on social media, I would seriously question if any of them knew what to do in an emergency or should an inmate abscond.
I would doubt a real EOP was created for this gig’ I suspect an umbrella company has compiled lots and lots of generic assessments and got them passed by Boris and his chums because large amounts of money have exchanged hands.
Talking of money, how much does this incarceration really cost?
Yes I am in a 5 start hotel
Yes I am in London
Yes it’s 11 days
But, this hotel is partiality shut down and closed.
No restaurants, No Bars, No Spa, No Gyms, No escalators, No housekeeping, No maintenance, Nothing that you would recognise as a hotel service.
The food is absolute minimum quality, I have eaten better in a hospital.
All food is Luke warm by the time it arrives, all food is in a plastic container, all food is tiny portions, all food is bland and tasteless.
And what really surprises me is the rubbish and waste, we get 2 single use, plastic bottles of water each day although being in the UK tap water is perfectly drinkable.
Bread rolls, cakes and biscuits are wrapped in plastic for us to just throw away?
All rubbish is left outside our doors to be collected, I have watched our maskless security collecting the rubbish and it ALL goes into a blue bag tired up and taken away…. I can’t believe these bags are then re-opened and sorted for recycling elsewhere. It’s shocking what the hotel and company are getting away with and I sincerely hope someone catches onto this and it is questioned. It’s one of the biggest “sticking plasters” over the governmental crack I have witnessed. Mr Johnson, if you are reading this where is the £1750 going and how can you justify the increase by £500?
Oh, oh yes if you want some additional reading read the full list of “Jobs that are exempt” from quarantine. Pete and I studied this in some detail. Boris you appear to have looked after your chums
