Just reminded me to post about Toolstation last Friday. No masks on customers or staff. Only saw three staff and five other customers but it was great.

Lady at the bus stop today had a visor thing on.

And was vaping.

It was just bloody brilliant. She breathed in, no issue, then breathed out. Her entire visor filled with vape cloud, then slowly dissipated out the sides.

It was like watching a live science experiment. I just wonder where she left her brain.

Sainsbury's again yesterday. 50/50 on the masks. Best ratio yet. Slowly getting better.

Enjoy it while you can.

Lidl York was 70% masked on Saturday.   Disappointing.   I’m inclined to agree with Peter Hitchens in that it has become a symbol of political allegiance and has knack all to do with health.

To a degree yes, but throw in age as a factor too and maybe the weather too. Hot days mean usage goes down as far as I can see.

Those who promote their usage the loudest most likely are political though.

In the US it is political and philosophical. The idea that the USA is the land of the free and home of the brave. Over here it is less pronounced. The biggest divide might be between those who regularly watch TV news and those that don't. I don't think people here are signalling that they're a big state person by wearing a mask. Much more it is because they're genuinely scared. Either for themselves or they're signalling that they're afraid for others.

As I've said previously no-one at the races or at Toolstation wore a mask. Very very few football fans are wearing masks. Plenty of them are lefty and are going along with the infernal knee. Part of it is that people are used to it. Hardly anyone has ever worn a mask to football. They have to the supermarket. 15 minutes in a mask to virtue signal that you care isn't a lot of skin off anyone's nose. The fact it doesn't work doesn't enter the thought process.

what a sad cunt this bloke is. At least everyone else in the store seems to pitch in on the womans side. Couldn't imagine seeing something like that here.

Sadly I think the mandate will return this winter, but to prevent the spread of flu, not covid.

After all, flu rates were tiny last year when we had masks, so they must work.

And if we allow them to get away with that, it will be masks every winter for ever.

I agree, and the behaviour of the general public hitherto, removes any doubt about your last sentence.

A big risk, and Susan 'commie' Michie if sage is open about about wanting this forever.

Although lockdowns get the credit for slowing flu down last year it has been mentioned Sars2 is more transmissible so finds the same victims (ie older with respirt weaknesses) faster and crowds flu out.

Is that such a bad thing? Japanese and Chinese choose to do so long before mask mandates.

I do agree about their ineffectiveness and symbolism in the UK and elsewhere.

Yes, all Japanese and Chinese have always worn masks everywhere, all the time. You'll have no trouble finding photographic evidence.

That did not go well at all!   Thanks to the guy!  Best some stay on social media.

This type of wanker only ever picks on women.

It does show the rampant politicisation of masks and covid in the USA. "Bad American!"

Look at the fucking state of him. And his whiny fucking voice. And his pathetic appeal to the authority of his wife. And his bullying of a female much smaller than him. 

He's a disgrace to manhood and men everywhere.

Emphasis mine. Also, only when ill, as I understand it, not healthy people.

Better to stay at home, not go to work / shopping if you're ill, mind.

I recall before I visited Japan watching a Joanna Lumley programme on Japan. She mentioned masks saying she wasn't sure whether they were wearing them to protect themselves from others or others from them.

Also the smog in Bejing can be so bad that the wearing of a mask saves the wearer from some of the pollution. 

Either way they were not government mandated.

I have absolutely no problem with other people wearing as many masks as they like.  But then again I never had any problem with motorcyclists wearing their helmets in petrol stations.  Maybe I'm just not into telling other people how to live their lives.

It is another out and out lie. I worked for many years in Tokyo and occasionally Osaka. In the middle of winter you may have seen around 5% of people wearing masks on trains, almost exclusively elderly women. Outside of trains it would be even fewer, maybe 1 to 2% in the middle of winter. You would almost never see any masks outside of winter.

If I was an evil overlord and wanted to measure the effectiveness of the current fear campaign I was pumping out re covid19, I would use mass CCTV / facial recognition tech to monitor mask compliance which is a nice little feedback measure.
