    I'm not surprised by that having read this morning somebody commenting "I’d note that the people who make such a fuss about wearing a bit of cloth on their faces for half-an-hour in a shop seem to be the very same ones who claim that their lives have been ruined by hearing someone speak Polish on the bus"

    Probably in the same way they do when they live together in caravans. (They don’t)
    It’s just a matter of time before we’re all locked down. I (reluctantly) collected my grandson from Leasowes on Friday. I was 1 of only about a dozen people wearing masks, there was very little social distancing going on, kids & parents were standing in groups all over the pavements & around the collection areas etc. That was after every parent had received an email on Thursday evening advising that half of year 4 were self isolating due to a positive case in their “bubble’ & asking all parents to be Covid secure. I’ve informed my daughter & son-in-law that I won’t be doing it again under current circumstances.

    How do kids on school transport socially distance? Or anyone on a train when there’s no enforcement or seats blocked off so people sit anywhere?

    On a nearby island, the available seats are clearly (un)marked.

    And, if you do choose to disobey any of the rules, you'll explain yourself to the chap in the fur coat.

    Of course, the trains are still much less used there, as the 'advice' is to not travel unless your journey is absolutely essential - the government having not 'sold' the public transport to their school friends, who want the revenue stream restarting.

    They don't. Lots of ours get the bus in and there's not social distancing!

    I was sat in traffic watching the school coaches from Balfor pass yesterday.

    No social distancing going on there at all, it was crammed.

    Whilst the wife was at the hospital for a scan yesterday I went into Newcastle under Lyme and the students from the local college were all day in and around the empty market stalls, up to 10 together...

    So smaller groups than they're taught in!
