we cant expect the police to police this and then criticise everything they do when we don't know the full story

Yes Ammi
Great for the Metro Front Page

[“Our officers would only arrest as a last resort.”
Two of those detained were later “de-arrested” after
supplying officers with their details and
were subsequently fined, police said.]


Yes a £200 fine is better


[."teeerany, teeerany I tell ya.."

Yes a Instagram poster]

...it was all staged by anti mask protesters...?..wasting police energies and resources like that during such times as these is just the lowest of the low in self centred-ness and lack of consideration....

...this was a conversation we had at home yesterday...that for some it seems almost a challenge to try to manipulate the safety restrictions and lives being at risk and maybe even lost because of those manipulations, donít seem to be being considered by all, sadly....



COVID-19: Lockdown rules 'not boundaries to be pushed against' - as minister admits to supermarkets concern...


Lockdown rules are "not boundaries to be pushed against", a government minister has warned - as he admitted there was concern at non-compliance with social distancing measures in supermarkets.

As the second week of England's third national lockdown begins, ministers are considering how to achieve greater enforcement of social distancing and mask-wearing in supermarkets.

Vaccines minister Nadhim Zahawi said the government doesn't "want to go any tougher" than the current lockdown rules, but suggested there could be a tightening of existing restrictions.

"The lockdown is actually pretty severe, we're asking people to stay at home, don't go out, if you have to go out it's only for exercise," he told Sky News.

"This virus loves social interaction and we are all pro-social animals, and it's the worst thing we do is to socialise.

This is my feeling. The objective is to save lives, not see how imaginative people can be in stretching the guidelines, and I find it very annoying. Those people highlighted earlier in the thread having a coffee .... they want to rebel and complain or they wouldnt have contacted the press to get their pictures in the paper

well said of that minister


going to the supermarket should not be a day trip for fun (which is what our PM Rutte also has said longer time ago over here)

Thanks Ammi, I didn't bother looking it up, but the idea that people are being arrested for stepping outside their front door twice is just ludicrous, like how would they know she had been out twice

It's so depressing, Mr C took the dog to one of our local country parks yesterday so he could have a run off the lead, but he turned back and came home as he said it was rammed and safer to walk around the streets which are empty

...a personal annoyance with street/pavement walking...is that if people are about to pass, going in opposite directions etc...the obvious would be, one go to the left and the other to the right so itís still possible to keep the two metres...?..but so many just walk right down the centre and nowhere near two metres between you...

Yeah or as I have encountered quite a bit recently is old couples coming towards me so I walk really close to the road in order to give them a lot of space and they decide instead of allowing the distance I have given them they walk even closer to me! Happens in shops too. The amount of people that try and get close to you is ridiculous. I do online shopping all the time now and any bits of milk or whatever i get from the shop at the corner. Im avoiding supermarkets where i can!

all the people round here walk on the road, pavements are so 2019, they did the same during the last lockdown. Catch covid or get run over ... run over seems to be the choice de jour
