    I noticed you nearly got lynched on FB Travs for posting a very sensible opinion.

    My TPE was a 10 mile walk with the dogs from my doorstep. At least 9 miles was off road and during the walk I saw only 7 others, 5 of which were near neighbours of mine.

    Also saw, amongst other birds, 4 Dippers and 2 Grey Wagtails.

    Well it was a slightly contentious issue, and I was going against the majority view, so I got what I expected!

    I happen to think the law matters more than Facebook opinions or actions of over zealous police, with seemingly too little to do.

    They should be focusing on such as Peterborough where ethnic communities are ignoring the ban.


    The statutory intstrument section 6 says only that exercise is a permitted reason to leave home.

    It does not bar multiple times, limit on length , or driving to the start.
    Indeed a cabinet office question on the last , did not rule it out.

    It does not restrict location, good job it doesn’t because many living in lakes are carrying on regardless on the high fell.

    It is a health bill, NOT a civil order bill and must be viewed in that context.
    The goal is social distancing, and that is the yardstick by which police will be expected to justify court action.

    So let’s obey the law! Not Facebook woke.
    Most of the commenters have no idea that others personal situation so actions, eg can or can’t run from home- are not necessarily possible for others. There is far too much I’m alright jack, from those already living in national parks, moralising about what others less fortunate should or should not do.

    Some of the actions, like closing footpaths by farmers, which has no justification in social distancing, and closing parks are ridiculous.

    If rules change so must we.

    Facebook fellrunner page usually inundated by what shoe/sock/backpack/etc.... now absolutely swamped by people asking what road shoe?!?

    Can't people make a decision for themselves... I do despair that these people feel they are safe to go alone into the mountains when they can't make a decision regards what shoes to shove on their feet...

    So since I came home yesterday I saw this on FB.

    https://www.facebook.com/BlackburnDa...action_generic

    I walked through a Witton car park on my way back home and around half a dozen cars were there, including a Dad with his approx. 8 year old daughter popping their bikes back in their car.

    So they have completely closed access to the cemetery, which is adjacent to Witton and some public footpaths and they have closed the park car parks meaning that you must visit on foot.

    It looks like this is a collaboration between police and local authority.

    On what grounds?

    This really is starting to get quite sinister as I've been in the park every day this week and I haven't once seen anyone appear to break the social distancing guidance.

    Then this morning, I see that Stephen Kinnock MP visited his Dad yesterday to deliver some supplies, as part of his exercise. It's a short walk.
    It also happened to be his Dad's 78th birthday.

    So he sat away from the door and sang Happy Birthday to his Dad at a distance that looks around 3-4 metres and tweeted about it.
