Yes miss......

Extracting or manipulating only the sections of scientific advice that help/support the direction they wish to go, everything else ignored or dismissed.

So you who’ve SAGE are cherry picking sections of advice to support the direction they wish to go?

According to the Economist magazine, 8% of UK residents believe Cummings` alibi about the same as believe the earth is flat. I wonder if they are the same 8% of gullible idiots.

No they didn't say party time but the PM mentioned barbecues - and from what I can gather every man and his dog will be having celebrations in their back gardens in the next few days. I can't see many waiting until Sunday. Cummings has made that a cast iron certainty. 

Many will be careful and they'll stick to the rules still but relying on common sense and what the government is saying is now shot through with holes. Claiming that common sense will prevail is not realistic government policy. It's too vague. Too open to interpretation. As we have seen this week. You might as well say let's not bother with a speed limit on the M6. Everyone can use their common sense. What would happen then? It's the same with these guidelines now. The message has to be crystal clear, rigid and simple, otherwise it becomes blurred, and there are a great many folk out there who, given an inch, will take a mile.

Not anyone on here of course!

I am a law abiding citizen. I have never even had a parking ticket and I am in my 60th year. I accept that the Government has had a very difficult job but they have made a complete horlicks of it. Their rules/guidance (who knows which is which?) are/is unclear, inconsistent and frankly contradictory. 

I would not like to catch the virus and I would be horrified to pass it on to someone. I shall therefore follow my own interpretation of what I must do to ensure the safety of myself and others. 

The Government needed to provide rules/guidance that were logical, which people could understand and therefore support. They have not done this and then shot themselves in the foot by re-interpreting everyones' previous understanding of the rules/guidance by supporting Mr Cummings.

I’ll be honest, I’ve got no idea what I can and can’t do. Though due to my wife’s illness, I’ll be locking down for a number of months yet. But if the simple full lockdown rules could be so brazenly misinterpreted by the actual government, then these new ones can be interpreted to an extent to make them pointless.
