Sturgeon again telling untruths at her daily briefing. "Face coverings will NOT protect you but will protect others". Not sure of her motives for saying it but it is absolute garbage. I wear a medical grade mask in the supermarket because, first and foremost,  it protects the wearer. That's why people have been wearing masks up until now. The idea that the virus can get IN but not OUT is arrant nonsense.  Of course, it's not fool proof, but that equally applies to the wearer as to others. If you touch surfaces and then rub your eyes then, of course, a mask doesn't help but, if she wants to encourage people to wear masks then she needs to stop slavering p*sh.

I've got asthma and this time of year it combines with hayfever and it's a ****ing ******* to my breathing.

 

Still wearing my mask in every shop and can still breathe fine.

 

I had the misfortune of policing mask wearing at my work till I told them to ram it, awful experience. 

It was the damnedest thing, the group who were adamant no one could force them to do anything all came up with a medical justification, every last one.

But when a manager explained they wouldn't be getting any more hours as they didn't want the rest of the staff at risk (zero hour contracts, so no commitment made or broken) every last one of them found they could wear a mask after all.

 

And in fact, the handful with genuine medical justification, mostly asthma, all still insist on wearing their masks - the last thing they want is more lung problems. 

 

Funny eh?

Full lockdown? Folk were out and about doing more exercise than they’d probably done in years. Tons of folk were at work, either from home or in a safe way on site. That wasn’t lockdown. That was a half-baked, panicked response by governments in London and Edinburgh who shortly thereafter realised they’d screwed everyone’s future by crashing the economy. 

 

Exactly, it was lock-down in name only here in the Borders, I could go out for a walk as often as I liked and I often did.

 

Had more chance of bumping into these guys than meeting another person.

If true this is not good enough 

 

I bet if they didn’t have tickets they wouldn’t be allowed on bus 

 

same goes if they don’t have masks

Can they not produce some kind of exemption card for those with a medical reason for not wearing a mask on public transport? I've seen loads of folk getting on buses without, LRT have already said their drivers don't have the authority to police it and quite frankly why should they have to?

I think London has a printable card you can display, although what’s to stop anyone downloading it I don’t know.

You could take photos of all the offenders and report them to the authorities. If LRT can match your snaps with their ridacards then they could suspend their use. Maybe also send them to the EEN and they could print the rogues gallery.

What ever it takes

 

the buses will have cctv too I’m sure!

 

still no one has explained why the drivers are ok to not let people on without valid tickets, yet are not doing the same with those who don’t wear masks!

 

surely there is the same threat of abuse from those without tickets as there are with non mask wearers?

 

one is a matter of life and death ... the other is not!

Where did I joke about it? The joke was aimed at you son. That and your penchant for being a wee tell tale TIT.

I do wear a mask when needed.

Not because a know nothing half wit like you tells me but because it settles the nerves of others.

Well don’t be so flippant about it mate 

 

people must wear face masks when and where appropriate- no ifs, buts or maybes about it

ofcourse not.... so WEAR FACEMASKS!

First bus tickets and now car seat belts.

 

As shite analogies go you're doing great on this thread.

Umm I don’t see how they are not relevant

 

seat belts potentially save lives

face masks potentially save lives of others too!

 

anyone who doesn’t wear one is an ignorant selfish twit - no debate about it!
