The difference this time is they are making it illegal to ignore. Whether or not the hard pressed police service can do much to influence the situation remains to be seen.

Don't worry, Martin - one of the RFCM Marshalls spotted it. We have your number, and we know where you live...

Fortunately, you seem to have committed to so much rules development (three at a time?!) that this should keep you out of mischief for quite some time  :)

Maybe all 3 sets could be the same; different covers though?

Yes I think 3 in one go is a record.

Noted about the socail commentary. I've got down from my soap box. I'll use it to store some scenery in. Far wiser use.

Section 2.11 of the government guidance says:

2.11 Does this mean that no more than six people can be in a pub or restaurant at once?

Venues following COVID-19 Secure guidelines can host more than 6 people in total, but no one should visit in a group of greater than 6. When you visit one of these places, such as a pub, shop, leisure venue, restaurant or place of worship you should:
 * follow the limits on the number of other people you should meet with as a group (it will be illegal to be in group of more than six from outside of your household)
 * avoid social interaction with anyone outside the group you are with, even if you see other people you know
 * provide your contact details to the organiser so that you can be contacted if needed by the NHS Test and Trace programme"

God knows who writes this stuff, there's more room for interpretation and argument than the WRG ancient rules ever did.  I read this as it's possible to have a number of goups of 6 within one venue.  The normal limit is 30 people but if your risk assessment indicates that the venue meets the COVID-19 Secure guidelines you can permit more people.

No Martin, but from what we see of the UK, there does seem to be a lot not wearing masks.

Here even watching the 'Tour' this week most of the spectators are wearing masks, even on the mountain tops.

Do you see the drivers of police vehicles or taxi's with masks on all the time while driving?

Sean are you wearing a mask when out driving in a car or van?

Yes, unless there is some risk to you or a person you are dealing with, my force has mandated the warring of masks in police vehicles.

Having said that the guidelines and rules have changed innumerable times ovr the last few months. At one point officers were to drive around single crewed at all times.

There is a special course officers have had to attend to learn how to put the mask on the right way around amd how to eat a doughnut whilst wearing a mask.

What we need is a thicker mask through which ordinary speech cannot be heard,  fitted with a small microphone on the inside and a speaker on the outside. I could suggest this to the Government and wait for the tender invitation. I'm not sure if it could be fitted with a doughnut flap though.
