So the wee ginger dictator has decided to make it mandatory to wear face masks in shops, despite the fact they donít protect your from the virus unless you wear the top level PPE.

Of which youíre supposed to dispose of after each time worn.

And all of this over 100 days since start of lockdown.

I already laugh at those wearing masks in shops as I often see people lifting them to scratch their nose, or wearing them round their chin leaving mouth and nose exposed  :z4.

As long as it makes them feel a wee bit safer though  :z4

Sorry Dave  :z6

We have an unwritten rule on the forum, that we don't do politics etc and do our best to keep discussions about all things fishing.
It's nice to have somewhere to go without whatever the latest media topic is hitting us in the face.
This thread was more about when we would be able to get out fishing again. ( and Steven's legs  :z4 )

I hope that's OK :z16
Best wishes
Mike

Apologies, just seemed to fit in with the thread.

I will vent my frustrations elsewhere.

With the end of my brownies and the silver tourist season have been sorting out my fishing tackle. I never got back into the swing of the season this year with the lockdown. Spoke to others and they were saying the same.
Do not mind the restrictions as long as they are properly carried out but have changed my view. Get the impression that none of the "high heid yins" know what they are doing.

Of course they don't. It's like dumb and dumber.
Scotland has a natural advantage as we have a far lower population density than England but it's still been a right mess up here. Far too many people  have died accross all the home nations...
And it's really messed up the season to top it off
