There was some utter fool called Lord Sumption on the news last night.

He's an ex-Supreme Court Judge who was telling us how we can ignore the Government's lockdown rules & more or less do whatever we want to do & that the police have no powers to stop us.
I didn't see it. Was he advocating that or pointing out that the powers given to the police are insufficient?

Supporting leave is not racism. Don't let others suggest it is.

He stopped short of aiding & abetting but his underlying message was that people should do as they see fit & they get reported by the police they should complain to a high-ranking officer & take the matter to court.

He based it on the fact that lockdown regulations don't have a 1,000 pages of precise orders such as you will only go to the nearest shop or locally doesn't mean 50 miles or a period of exercise can't last 12 hours etc.

Well what a coincidence as we were talking about BBC bias in another thread & here we have a prime example.

The woman was arrested for obstructing police officers by not telling them who she was & where she was going.

Nothing to do with the Corona virus lockdown which was a secondary offence & dealt with swiftly by the court.

A number pf papers national and local have carried the same story which is not unusual, the first offence appears to failing to give an account to Transport Police on travelling on the railway.

But as you point out the secondary offence relates to the emergency measures on travel during the Covid-19 measures so done for two offences.

The Times claims that this second offence is an offence that does not exist, if it that is right or wrong I have no idea, but a Court has dealt with her it appears for both matters.
