I started a new job not so long ago and quit after three weeks, I refused to wear a stupid mask all day at all, laughed at the managers and their covid terror.. I could see it wasn't going to end well

I've already posted about this in the 'Come Together by Region?' thread in the Solutions forum.   But now here is the advert for the big event on the 29th August. It would be great if as ma

I'm in no way condoning violence in this post but i am speculating about how some people might react under certain conditions.   I think the reason they are goi

The controlled perception here is:

 

Uncouth Northern woman and her Yorkshire husband who looks like he asks for scraps with his bag of chips and interrupts once or twice to say, "Can I say something to yer now?" 

 

versus... 

 

Calm middle-class well-spoken women from west London who buy prosecco from Marks [Marx?] & Sparks, took degrees (or look the types) and sound like they know what they are talking about

 

This is unfair because the Northern woman had the better points and - arguably - is the more intelligent, but I repeat: perception rules.

 

Maybe, as you suggest, it will backfire and people will rebel against it (similar to Brexit), but they present things this way for a reason.


In my circles prosecco is considered uncouth.

 

It’s either quality real ales or excellent English Sparkling wine only!

I get the feeling amazon  won't have their sales of child clothes.kettles..etc stopped.

 

It would be interesting to see if anyone on here is in Wales and for them to go on Amazon to see if there's any restrictions.

Hello, based department!

 

I am not suprised that Gwilyn Owen was furious and took direct action about children's winter clothing. This is just one case which is the tip of the icebag of the boiling anger to such crass government action. 

 

What the Tesco plastic sheet stripper said could not be more to the point.

 

Quote

 

I don't expect everyone to do what I've done here but I do expect everyone to know that denying the public clothing is nothing but immoral and inhuman. 

'So no I'm not ashamed of what I've done.

'I'm not prepared to live in a society where they can take basic human needs away like being able to buy new clothes, especially for children. So I'll do what I can to stop it.

'I've had it up to my tether with what's going on and we need more people to take a stand for what is right! This was my stand.'

Just hours before he took to Tesco, Mr Owen posted: 'I urge everyone to whenever they go to these ''non essential'' aisles in supermarkets, to open them up!

'Take off the covering! Clothes is amongst the things that have been covered up not for sale in Tesco, this is tyranny!

The Welsh Government says children's clothes are non-essential when it is zero VAT/Value Added Tax rated, as well as Children's footwear.  Also if adult clothing is non-essential then how can anyone be arrested for being nude in public if it is a non-essential item.

If Amazon can still sell non-essential items then that is double standards, workers are packing items which then get delivered by couriers and postmen, who are doing more trips, and putting their lives at risk of COVID-1984 all for so-called non-essential items.

I suppose that shows how working class I am.  To me, prosecco seems posh.

Comment from below the above article:

It's a proven medical fact that masks don't really do anything to stop the spread of viruses and they are uncomfortable but just wear it for goodness sake. It saves a lot of unwanted confrontation.
This guy is just an attention seeker and most definitely a flat earther.

 

That's the depth of stupidity we are now dealing with.  Either that, or somebody at 77th. Brigade should be working for Private Eye.

 

 

It's a bit like:

"It's a proven medical fact that jumping off a high cliff onto a rocky beach will very likely cause you to die, but for goodness sake if that is what the government and media are telling you to do, then just do it, it saves a lot of unwanted aggravation."

 

Most people just don't question what they are told. OBEY!

 

And then you get comments like "why won't people just follow the rules?"

At the march today in London, a friend was lectured and handed one of these leaflets by a police officer. This was because some swear words were uttered over the megaphone we were using (by another random person on the march).

 

In return, my friend gave the police officer one of the Covid-19 protest leaflets being handed out.

The Cockwell Inn,

Tillit, Herts,

AL1 1HT

“It is very important that people now obey the rules ....

 

“If anyone thinks I am exaggerating they are very welcome to come over and join me in the Covid centre."

Not been on forum for a week, so had a lot of catching up to do this evening. A thought about the lock down in Wales, apologies if I have missed a similar post to this one. Whilst Wales is in lockdown and people stop getting tested the number of positive test results will of coarse go down. Prompting Drakeford to brag about how he has done the right thing. Then wait for Johnson and Sturgeon to follow suit. Is Wales being used as an experiment?
