Stick-on bot eh! A very unpleasant notion.

 

I suspect you are not above bottery type behaviour yourself. More shitstirring than Russian though.

 

:D

 

On occasion, doug, but I'd say more long-range pot-shots than actual shit-stirring. 👍

Aye, you constantly repeating it on here will get folk wearing them right enough.

 

At the moment they are not mandatory to wear outside so why should people be ashamed for not wearing them?

 

And why am I falling for your obvious trolling?

  Will we be investing heavily in a tracing app that doesn't work even though lots of experts told us it wouldn't work?

 

  Or will we just take it slowly in the hope that we can save lives and avoid an economically damaging second spike?

I remember hearing this guy’s wife being interviewed on Today and being quite moved.  I’ve wondered since what happened, so here is some happy news.

 

I came off Twitter when I read her story. I had no idea he'd survived until opening that. What a lovely moment.

So much trolling going on now. That alone suggests things are hopefully looking up. Nothing else to worry/moan about so trolling about masks is the new hot topic.

So, should the Ticket Inspectors on trains be responsible for enforcing that?  (bearing in mind BTP are usually nowhere to be seen)

Buck doesnt stop with the drivers. Lothian Buses told the drivers that while masks are mandatory, it cannot be enforced. Thats why some people arent wearing masks. FWIF I was on a bus today and in the main most people were wearing masks, including me.

Now that I will be venturing outside again, well at least into areas with a lot of folk, can I ask where all of you are actually getting your masks, and if there are any you would recommend?

Very poor then 

 

how come they don’t let people on with invalid tickets (which have not threat to health of others) yet they don’t mind people with no face masks come on the bus - (which does have a health risk)

You can't get away with smoking on a train with the excuse "I have a breathing condition". That excuse for not wearing masks makes it almost impossible to enforce unless the Government were to introduce some form of certification for those who are allowed not to wear masks.

 

For that reason, the wearing of masks has to be voluntary but strongly advised. It's the only way it will work.

Well, you get yourself a job with Scotrail then see how you get on confronting a group of guys who have been drinking.  Neither bus drivers nor train staff should have to police this.

So how come they are ok with giving people with invalid tickets a hard time, yet they don’t have the balls to do the same to people with out face masks?

In that case, get onto the Government and persuade them to introduce this course of action, because without it ticket collectors, bus drivers etc. would have to be forced to escalate any "I can't use one because I have a breathing problem" up to police level for them to investigate further and I don't think we want that.

I don't think you understand the level of aggression these people face.  Ticketing is a Scotrail matter.  Face masks are a SG matter and so should be dealt with by the police. If you can find them.

You think a 90% compliance rate is shocking?

 

And for your last sentence, have you not read @redjambo's replies to you about this already? Having breathing difficulties, eg. asthma, or for children under 5, is a valid reason not to wear one on public transport. So going back to your "shocking" 90% compliance, it's perfectly reasonable to expect at least 10% of passenger to fall under a category that are exempt.

Brilliant,  90% of passengers wearing a face covering.

You should be pleased.

Hi 

 

I have got some from a family member who is a designer and is currently making high quality fabric masks.  I have also bought the one use medical masks on line.  50 for £14.99 i think. They come in handy when I need to just pop over to a local shop .

Does the family member have an online presence where I could order one, James?
