It would appear that our police services in England and Wales have been put in a position where they have been directed to take action and prosecute people based on the Corona Virus Act where it is not competent in law and thereby not fit for the intended purpose.

Re: Social distancing on the High Road

In fairness, I think most people try very hard to observe the minimum distance. It is a moving feast though - literally and figuratively. Not everyone can be an instant expert on maintaining the separation either when standing on a bus, a train , in a shop or simply when walking. We all observe one ...

Re: Activity in old Coop

Noticed the anti-HS2 signs on the canopy at the building frontage. It's not the most politically favoured nor the most popular project in the communities through which it must pass. Here's some food for thought. We are all enjoying blue skies almost free of aircraft and the CO2 pollution that goes w...

Happy to raise the matter with my neighbour's daughter.

I believe she has completed her online report to the Met Police.

As soon as I have spoken with her - I'll pm you on here.

The link provided was part of a registration process which in turn lead to the applicant being able to make an appointment to attend one of the sites and dispose of waste.
