    Did he wear the "mask" around his neck, or have his nose poking out? :p

    Really, Dr. Johnny?
    I have Asthma and wear a mask when required. I may be mistaken, but I haven't suffocated yet.

    Why are there exceptions for certain people, then?

    The Prime Minister and Attorney-General say it's OK to break laws in limited and specific ways.

    Some are for those who have mental conditions that preclude the wearing, but some people are just plain needy, or think they're special.

    I thought there were exceptions for people with certain medical conditions - presumably breathing problems.

    If so, then the masks must have some detrimental effects.

    Logically then, a face covering MUST restrict one's breathing......

    The laws and enforcement are necessary because quite a few people ( or maybe quite a lot ) of people do not have the common sense to think about their actions and the effect their thoughtless and/or selfish actions will have on other people.

    If everybody used common sense ........ no point in going further on that thought. it will not happen

    Surely we've already established that Dominic Cummings and Boris' dad can do whatever they want?

    I think you'll find it's usually psychological problems.

    For example, if you had been near suffocated, or questioned by US forces, you might have a fear of masks.

    They evaluate the situation and decided ( with hindsight correctly ) that their actions would not put anyone at risk.

    The law is that drivers should obey speed limits. Yet blue light drivers can ignore the limits. That is true only if they have had the training to handle a vehicle at speed and have the knowledge and common sense to only break the limit when absolutely necessary. Technically they are breaking the law.

    Ordinary drivers without that training and lacking common sense will think they can break the speed limit without being a danger to themselves or others. Some will get away with it and do no harm, only a few get caught.

    Not the same with breaking the rules about the spreading of the virus, a few people break the rules and as a result many people will be harmed,

    If the entire population of the UK had the necessary knowledge and common sense to always act is a way that would prevent the spread of the virus then there would be no need for draconian laws.
