Wales sails ahead in the idiocy stakes


WE have known for months that the coronavirus restrictions put in place are completely without logic (does Covid-19 stay at home until the pubs close at 10pm?) but the government in Wales is way ahead in the idiocy stakes. During the 17-day ‘fire-break’ there, supermarkets have been told to stop selling ‘non-essential’ goods. These include baby clothes, pillows, sheets, housewares such as plates, socks, tights and stationery. However shoppers are free to purchase alcohol, Hallowe’en decorations and Advent calendars.

In this video Alex Belfield (‘The Voice of Reason’) tries and fails to explain the rationale. (Warning: some bad language.)
