Twitter link is no longer there.

There's an awful lot of exception, I could go to the shop, doctors, work, chemist and for a walk all in the morning
I'm guessing they will see how they go before ramping it up if they need to
Have they got enough police to enforce it though?

Why would you want to find a loophole in this law?
So you can find more opportunities to spread the virus?

I’m not
I not working
I go out once a day to walk the dog that’s it
I’m just pointing out that it’s too lax too enforce and I the police dont have the manpower
And, as a point of medicine, you can’t spread a virus you don’t have

I went out yesterday to shop for the week.
I saw one unmanned Police car in 20 miles (decoy?)
My town has 2 police officers for 5000 residents.
I had to go to 4 shops to get most of what I needed... and gave up on some things.
headlines are great..... reality is different.

This is for 12 weeks minimum.....

Oh, that's odd; it works for me even when logged out.

It's a link to a post which makes this point (and replies that question it):
David Allen Green @davidallengreen 10h

The key is to have a "reasonable excuse" to leave the home

The examples given are *not* an exhaustive list

The crucial legal word here is "includes" which means "includes but is not limited to"

Possible to have other "reasonable excuses"
