Indeed. Not happening though from the looks of it. Tomorrow i can imagine dealing with a thousand questions from everyone. I need a short, snappy answer - such as, I don't take orders from criminals, and even going by said criminals' definition i'm exempt anyway. If they ask what crimes, i'll say, is mass murder good enough for you?

Yep, my kids school says masks are Mandatory from tomorrow...

 

 Mandatory - doesnt that need consent?

 

I will wait to see if they try to stop me tomorrow.

I would have thought that the cops, finally showing their true nature and opening fire on unarmed protesters, would have been a declaration of war on the people.

 

I was watching RT last night and there was a clip of the cops in Rotterdam,  firing into the crowd. They shot at least FIVE people. That was 19:00. There was even an interview with a Belgian reporter. On the RT news at 20:00 it was gone.

 

My wife found it reported on Al Jazeera. A few hours later that was gone, except we managed to download the text and make a PDF (which I posted on here). It vanished from Al Jazeera as well  with 2 hours.

 

PROOF that ALL media world wide is under a single control. No mention on so-called alternative news sites either.

 

Not a word about it anywhere since. All carefully hushed up, it didn't even draw a fucking comment from anyone on here either. 

 

So now, it's NORMAL for the pigs to start shooting unarmed people.?

 

Fifty years ago it would have been a declaration of war by the cops on civilians, now there are so few balls, no one says a fucking word.

 

Everyone deserves what they are going to get!

Oh FFS, not all this bollocks again.

 

No I am not wearing this useless, diisgusting, suffocation devices for an imaginary virus that spreads by magic and has been waiting for 04.00 on 30/11/21 to start attacking us all again.

 

THIS IS CONTROL. THIS IS ABUSE. THIS IS FRAUD.

 

And worse.

 

People need to just say FUCK OFF to this rubbish. Once and for all. But of course they won't. The new "varinat" has already established itself in the lexicon of public conversation.

 

Every. Single. Time.

Here's how my day went regarding masks

 

Boss: as you know spidey, masks must be worn in shop again (holds shitty disposable nappy about to hand it to me)

Me: not for me thanks i'm exempt according to gov guidelines

Boss: we need to see proof or a reason for exemption

Me: no, you don't. it's all there on the gov website. have a look for yourself

Boss: ok i'm going to need to call HR about this. i'll talk to you in a minute

 

10 minutes later...

 

Boss: ok i've got hold of them and it looks like i'll be needing a reason for exemption

Me: no, you don't, unless [store name] rules supersede gov rules, and if so i'll need it in writing for poss legal case in future

Boss: *sigh* ok i'll have to call HR again

 

Another 10 minutes later...

 

Boss: ok it turns out you were right

Me: i know, it's amazing how many people just dont read the gov website and go off of opinion or media, also how come i have less rights than customers whom we are told not challenge their medical status
Boss: blah blah company staff policies blah blah keeping customers safe blah blah fucking blah

Me: mhm, see you later then

 

Job done. No mask bullshit. Only sodding member of staff not to do so as i predicted.

I had postponed any mask wearing until the eleventh hour. Had my groceries delivered during the earlier  mandated mask wearing of last year, until I could no longer afford the added expense (additional $10.00 US). Some of my deliveries had included a free mask to wear, which I had initially tossed in the bin. I eventually saved a few, just in case, since I wasn't going to spend my money on any.

 

So, eventually I had to break down and wear the damned thing. The mask was black clothe and had silk screened images on one side, so I flipped it to the black side facing out. I hadn't bother to look at myself in the damned thing until I had worn it a few times to the store. On one trip to the store, I had a look at myself in the car visor mirror. It made me laugh. Along with this black mask, I wear my dark sunglasses. In the mirror I saw half my face covered in a black mask, and the other covered with dark glasses. I looked like some antagonist from a slasher film. Which explained some of the nervous looks I got from other shoppers. As much as I hated to wear the damned thing, I did take delight in knowing the look was scaring the rest of the flock.

 

You ARE ACQUIESCING and going along with the SCAM by agreeing to WEAR a NAPPY on your FACE.

THAT does NOT HELP with the message that many on here are trying to get across!

I went to Tesco earlier today and shopped without a mask.

 

I'd say approx 15% of customers were unmasked. No weird looks either.

 

Voice on tannoy stated masks are mandatory unless exempt, if anyone talked shit to me I planned to say I'm exempt end of conversation. 

 

Hopefully more people will go maskless as time goes on.

Here in the North West of England since Tuesday, I have been travelling on different buses using cash, and not one bus driver has told me to wear a face mask and all have been pleasant.

 

However, today on my journey back home, the bus driver says 'where is your face mask?' in a nasty arrogant tone of voice. I simply say I am exempt. He then goes on to give me a lecture that since yesterday, it is now mandatory to wear face masks on public transport and starts to talk about 'Health & Safety'. Needless to say, he made me feel very uncomfortable, but I stood my ground.

 

Then a guardian angel (big tall bloke) behind me could see what was going on and says to me 'are you exempt?'. I simply say yes. The bloke then turns to the bus driver and says 'I'm also exempt'. He then challenges the bus driver on his hypocrisy by asking 'why are you not wearing a mask?' which he wasn't. The bus driver simply points to the mask which is lying on his desk beside him, however, he did not give an answer and remained speechless.

 

Like what has already been mentioned before, this whole mess has given some people a sense of power and they think they can intimidate and bully people. 

 

Luckily on a positive note, I had someone there who could also see through the madness and supported me. I honestly cannot thank that person enough - thank you! ❤️

Duh, we gonna have to go through this again... 🙄

 

Wearing a face covering in public places.

From https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-51205344

Quote

What have the police said about enforcement?

The police will enforce the regulations "where it is necessary," says the National Police Chiefs' Council (NPCC).

 

^ Interesting choice of their name.

"A non-player character (NPC) is any character in a game that is not controlled by a player."

 

If a constable is to issue a fine.... for not wearing one is a criminal matter then?

Mind you this is BS. Guideline is just an advice, not the law guys. Get your camera ready and film when confronted by a NPC. Ask his name, number, be polite and calm about it. This way, you won't look like a mad man when you appear in court to claim damages. hahaha.

 

Quote

What have shops said about the rule change?

  • Sainsbury's will have "greeters and security guards at the front of our supermarkets" to remind people to wear masks
  • Morrisons staff will check customers have face coverings, and will hand out masks to those that need them
  • Asda will also hand out masks to customers without them
  • Iceland staff won't challenge customers over masks to avoid confrontation 😍
  • Co-Op staff won't refuse to serve customers who aren't wearing masks 🤩

The BBC understands Tesco, Aldi and Lidl also don't intend to challenge unmasked customers. 🤩

 

Interestingly, no comment from M&S or Waitrose. I wonder why....

That's discrimination right there. He was OK while you were not.

Also, driver shouldn't have lectured you. If you said 'exempt', that should have been the end of the matter. That counts as harassment. You've probably earned yourself 10K right there if you took all the details and make your claim against the bus company. Of course you will need to be able to prove that you are medically exempt though and a simple letter from a GP would be sufficient.

You should go out of your way to get this little tin-pot dictator the sack.  All he needs to do is drive the fucking bus.  I find two simple words are best used against these wankers - fuck off!

They're also harmful inasmuch as they have a bad psychological effect on people like me who've never worn one.

I have nightmares about these gimp muzzled fuckwits around me.

Not only young children, but all children and adults rely on facial expression and reading/interpretation. Imagine a homeless person who never gets a smile, then every fucker is masked up. Its destroying the fabric (pardon the pun) of society.

The level of ignorance and potential "incitement to hate" is shown in this recent thread on our local website. Where this fellow openly admits to trying to "out" a non-mask wearer.

http://www.putneysw15.com/default.asp?section=community&link=http://appasp.PutneySW15.com/server/app/forum/default.asp?site=3

This level of abuse, intolerance and insensitity really needs to be called out

That "Richard carter" seems like a right nasty little shit, i hope one day i run into him and he dares to challenge me on not wearing a mask... (But thankfully i dont live anywhere near him, so the chances are slim). He would get a punch in the gob, see if his mask protects him from that.  Maybe find out where the guy lives and publish his details on here so we can harrass him... he doesn't give a shit about people's right to privacy so why should we?

Doxing is the ground on which the worst people stand. Why would anybody want to become as the ones who are despicable? 

 

I'm sure that the authors of division above the likes of Carter would love that. 

 

As surely as racism only goes one way, so do online harassment laws. Not only would you be the one in the dock, you would bring this forum's owner/s into the dock with you.

You are right.  Just a punch in his gob will do.

Shopped at various locations this weekend in a small town outside Birmingham city centre. Security guards who patrol the main shopping centre were all masked up and so was every person who worked in every shop I went into - except Iceland.

 

There is an ambiguous sign up on the front doors of Iceland that would appeal to mask wearers and non mask wearers depending on how you interpret the message. I thought it quite clever as it wiped out any responsibility (on Iceland's part) for whatever decision a person makes by quoting the government line (advised but not law).

 

I shall shop there a bit more but do prefer the smaller, one man band shops such as traditional butchers and greengrocers.

 

I'd say that 80% of shoppers in and out of the shops were masked. There were a good thousand or more on the main drag doing their weekend and Christmas shopping. 

 

Went into Wilko on Saturday and saw a security guard on the door, just inside the shop. He stood there as if straddling an imaginary horse, with his arms folded and his mask almost covering his eyes (he had an unusually small head).

 

As I walked in I did a subtle bit of twitching and remarked to my son that I didn't want to stay here long as my anxiety was through the roof and I didn't want to trigger a claustrophobic episode if the queues were too lengthy at the till. Such a terribly warm shop with little space when waiting to pay for goods.

 

Though most security guards are now versed in keeping their gobs shut regarding people's medical privacy, this guy looked like he wanted to fight the world - hence me preparing the ground for any confrontation.
