Well folks, this is what we are up against from the general public since the announcement:
'It's a pretty simple choice. Wear a mask to protect yourself and others, or be selfish and potentially end up on a ventilator.'
'Just wear a mask fgs it's not hard, stop being so damn selfish and stupid.'
'No Mask or No Face visor No Entrance. No Exceptions.'
'Anyone that claims they cannot wear a face mask or visor should be shielding and not going out shopping or using public transport.'
'Seriously why is it we and America seem to be the only ones with idiots who cant comply with simple things to protect people's lives.'
'If your medical problem is so severe you can't wear a mask for an hour in a shop perhaps you should be considering home deliveries instead of potentially infecting others with a virus you are not aware you have? '
'Army on door no mask no entry, if your not fit enough to use a mask then you should be at home shielding.'
'Security should be on hand to keep these idiots out. Police called and massive fine handed out.'
'If you think masks are useless you should be sent to work in a ward full of corona virus patients without wearing a mask. Don't worry as you know you'll be safe!'
'It just makes you feel sad at their total lack of intelligence, their ignorance, lack of compassion and total disregard for the rest of society and for the rule of law.'
'Where are the Covid Marshals we were promised? I'm hoping they are on rooftops with sniper rifles..'
'There is a lot more respected science on the side of wearing masks, than not. And it is simple, costs little and almost everyone can comply. Go on, do something unselfish for once. Save my granny.'
This is just the tip of the iceberg. There are literally thousands of these people. We have a very steep hill to climb!
Sounds like this guy needs a bit of instruction on the human rights and Equality laws
My sister manages a bowling alley, at the weekends they have agency security staff, i.e. doormen stopping really drunk people coming in. She was chatting to one of the doormen last week who told her what BS he thinks the whole masks thing is. The other day, a family of 5 come in, all maskless, and claiming exemptions, my delighted sister shows them to their spot, then half an hour later, the mother came up to her, all upset, saying the doorman (note, has left his perch on the door) has been harassing the family, asking for proof of their medical exemption. Obviously, she apologised profusely to the family, and then had a word with the fella quietly, telling him he had absolutely no right to demand that from the family, that his job was purely to stay by the door, and that anything to do with masks etc. was beyond his job description - and he kept on maintaining his outrage that they were blatantly lying! My point is, I think some of the worst enforcers are people who don't agree with it anyway..
MickeyG - No it's not just you. I've noticed it everywhere I go. Even a few weeks ago in the lovely warm sunny weather, people were masked up to the hilt. The Government and Media have done a real 'job' on the British public.
Is it just me or what, but it seems like more and more people are wearing masks on the streets? Are they just too lazy to remove it between shops and when using public transport? Or, are they just getting dumber? The only good thing about it is that it keeps reminding me that the devils are still at work.
