    I don't have a valid reason to NOT wear a mask Mat. My grey hair tells me how old I am (hence the more recent addition of bottled colour)... don't let anyone bully you in to wearinga mask or having to leave shops... I NEVER judge anyone not wearing one xx

    You might want to rethink that Anne, if because of the stupidity of a few people we now have a,Covid spike much worse than the original one back in March. There was almost an anti mask policy by Australian and State governments and now were are in a second lock down that's really stringent.

    I don't enjoy wearing a mask, but did so in the supermarket as so many idiots didn't realise that 1.5 metres is the minimum distance to keep apart not the maximum.
    One is too many a thousand not enough.

Downing Street killed off the plan to tell huge swathes of the population to stay at home after ministers warned it was impractical, could damage the economy and sent out mixed messages on the day the Government wanted workers to get back to the office."
    Babs - not surprised that this was vetoed, a significant percentage of politicians are 50+, ditto medical people so the country would gring to a standstill

    Rethink what Rosemary? I always do wear my mask if in shops. Not that I go to them often or for long. I was saying that Mat shouldn't be bullied in to wearing one when he has a valid reason not to x

    If they did go ahead with over 50s lockdown there would be a marked increase in sales of hair dye and anti-wrinkle cream!

    I am exempt from wearing a mask and have my sunflower lanyard and card in plastic wallet swing on the end.

    I also have 2 types of mask and I try to wear them for as long as I can, practising around the home and garden but it makes the bits of my lungs that are still working, feel on fire as I breath back in warm air and have to whip off the mask. I now have a visor as well, which I have yet to try. So whilst I am exempt I am trying to conform in support of those who have to wear them.

    I have yet to go into a shop.

    As for lockdown for over 50's I am not sure Hubby and I could endure another X number of months. Hubby has been to work through out, with the exception of 2 days a week working from home for 3 months. He retires around the 4th Sept, depending if his replacement is in post. So another lockdown would be hard for us. I also have a backlog of medical bits and pieces with some minor surgery right on the horizon with potential dates mooted by the hospitals.

    That’s the problem with all the knee jerk reactions that have taken place. They don’t take into account the knock on effects. Each new rule is like a pebble being dropped into a pool. The ripple effects can be incredible.

    That is one way to stimulate the economy Stephen.
