Right, I want to share my experience of NOT wearing a mask in a South Cambs Tesco. (Spoiler alert: it's a good one).
For the record - I am exempt.
I rocked up to the door, no security. Walked straight in and got on with my shop. There were plenty of people in there (almost all masked, but I didn't see everyone, so can't confirm).
There were very polite people doing their shopping, going about their business. I was very polite as I always am, letting people through and respecting their space.
It was VERY quiet, compared to a normal shop - I suspect it's because people don't speak with the masks on.
The staff were absolutely fine; not all were masked. The ones that weren't, were of ALL ages (young and old). We had a chat with some staff, who were lovely (but we know them anyway).
I admit, I was apprehensive at first, but I just meditated throughout the entire shop and was fine.
You ALL need to get out, get on and live your life (respectfully, lovingly and peacefully). Before you know it, you'll be at the end of your life and you'll regret it.
I hope this great experience, will give you the confidence and encourage all you exempt people to stand up and get on with things, in a positive way; Lord knows we need it.
Take care one and all.
A senior SNP MSP also encouraged public bullying, before masks were law. The bigoted fool wanted the public to stare down those without masks, a really dangerous thing to say. At the time 95% were not wearing masks in shops and 100% were not wearing masks at petrol stations, except him and he wondered why? How can a government minister be so disconnected from the public? The answer is, this was the start of their propaganda campaign before making masks mandatory based on “weak evidence” similar to what gove and Johnson did later. They are being told what to do and they all must face trial.
Cressida Dick's plan of shaming the public into wearing a mask has failed miserably! Does anyone else think that this woman's last name is some sort of clue? Is the universe trying to tell us something?
Same here in West Dorset. I've been in Spar a couple of times and Morissons today. From what I could see, all other customers were covered up. No one showed any concern towards me though. I know of other folk that simply walked into a couple of shops, co-op being one, not deliberately initially, they just forgot about masks being "obligatory"! Hopefully, one by one, wearers will take note of us and also begin to lose the fear and uncover.
Good Stuff Grumpy, glad to hear the experience.
Big baddad - Same experience for me in Sainsburys. I don't like shopping at the best of times, but it was very chilled I must say. Same on the buses and trains where I live. Nobody gives a hoot. In my local supermarkets about 90% didn't wear masks before they were enforced, so most of them are only complying because Boris has told them they must. To accuse me for not wearing one when they themselves were not wearing one only a week ago would be very hypocritical, and I think most of them know that.
