Scarborough reopen loos and car parks.

On the logic some will apply that if these things are open then it must be ok for us to visit?

Shutting some roads as well but this will only stop people cruising the front. Why not shut the roads into the town? Close 4 main roads and you'd have to know your way around to get into the town. Stop the trains into the town and then all locked down with little or no inconvenience for the locals. Folk have shown that they're only interested in what they want to do and so much as I am very much against a police state, last weekend's behaviour perhaps justifies this course of action? Go one step further and fine everyone who queues up to the road blockade who have travelled more than, say, 20 miles. Place signs say Scarborough is shut on the roads 20, 30 and 40 miles away so these fines would only affect the really daft?

Other seaside places could do the same I'm sure.

Very much in the style of the Mayor of Amity Island public safety measures.

But the government guidance is that you can travel more than 20 miles isn't it?

Just head for a relatively quiet beach, with a back up plan in case it is too busy, or wait until it is safer altogether.

We're living in a time where government advisors can flout the actual laws they clearly had a hand in making, and not be punished for it. Why on earth do you think anything else right now, or ever again, is going to make sense?

This is the problem ,Govt. guidelines say you can drive anywhere in England to exercise based on scientific advice but based on the same advice, some places say don't come here. Neither position has any legal basis

OK, 20 miles was a "plucked out of the air" distance but the principle stands for me. I thought that it was "exercise" that you could travel for? So how is laying on a beach that?

Taking Scarborough again as the example, there are probably enough folk in the town itself to fill both the North and South bay beaches.

Could make it one car out, one car in at my roadblocks? Bit like the supermarkets.

I certainly agree with the last bit.

You could stretch out in a beach and say you were exercising your muscles, it would be good enough for Dominic wouldn't it!!!

Exercise, sun bathing, outdoor activities encouraged .. for mental and physical healths' sake .. thems the 'rules'

Social distancing is essential, but whilst staying away from home overnight for the above reasons is 'outlawed' the distance you can travel is unlimited

However, you are otherwise encouraged to stay at home .. unless, of course, you are above the law or working pertinent shifts



The referee is the final arbitrary

Unless you have symptoms! Then you should stay at home. Unless you are an arrogant moron who thinks doing a 500 mile round trip with a 4 year old it tow (who must have needed to stop at a service area somewhere) is your right because of your high position in society.

If you know Durham Cummins politics and philosophy . none of this is a surprise.What is disturbing is that the result of this clusterphuque is that it`s a clarion call to the selfish and stupid to do as they please. This will result in a higher infection and death rate , but again , if you know Cummin's, eugenicist views , he would applaud that outcome. A pox on him and Johnson.

Losing the daily news conference isn't exactly a loss, hearing another twatwaffle blather on whilst sending the country to the dogs.

Clearly even back in April you were allowed to drive 30 miles, with poor eye sight, to sun bath for 30 minutes at a beauty spot.

Unbelievable arrogance, no apology, explicitly said he had no regrets!! Tried to blame the media, ridiculous stuff.

I told more credible lies at High school and still got caned. Absolutely pathetic and of course the beloved leaderís judgement in his advisors must also be questioned. There again the beloved leaderís relationship with the truth has been somewhat relaxed to date.
