As you all may or may not be aware I'm a trading standards officer here in Wales and I have been enforcing the Health Protection (Coronavirus Restrictions) (Wales) Regulations since March. I can categorically state that Drakeford's edict on the banning for sale of so-called essential items in supermarkets has no basis in law. It is going to create big problems for us on the ground over the next few weeks and we are all properly pissed off with him.

If I am asked by any retailers in the next few weeks I will be informing them that as they are permitted to open they can sell what they like when they like other than alcohol after 22:00hrs.  

Not entirely sure you are serious or having a Bedrag moment.

Can you confirm?

Students can't buy pens and paper :Geek:.  I can see one major reason for what they have done - small shops that were forced to close would rightly call foul of supermarkets being able t sell goods they were not allowed to buy it is a gift to mega corps like Amazon who pay almost zero direct tax and ship all their profits abroad - that part really is a disgrace. 

 

Drakeford used that as the reason at the briefing on Friday, after a suggestion from an association representing small retailers. As soon as he said it I thought "the daft old bugger hasn't thought that folk will just buy stuff online and he's gifted money to Amazon".

Fucking hell. At this rate I'll be stealing a motorbike and making a break for England.

Have they put up any barbed wire yet?

 

Whatever you do don't try cross the bridges to Anglesey. In April the tourism chief wanted soldiers on the bridges to block tourists from crossing. They have had plenty of time since then to set up some sniper positions!

My brain is a bit dull this evening.

Superb.  There are three roads into my town. I’ve argued strongly for gun nests at each approach. :)

Day one of the pandemic all devolved parilaments should have been closed and politicians furloughed for a standard UK approack

That said they welsh would be well justified in removing the welsh assembly by force. There is something really odd going here around the world

A politicians primary goal should be the welfare of the people. If a policy must do harm for a greater good, then that's regrettable, and something that should cause them great discomfort and sleepless nights. 

To decide that you need to cause more suffering to somehow balance out the suffering that results from your policies isn't fairness. It's lunacy. It could only make sense to a psychopath.

Can't you do something about the Minimum Price for Alcohol being used for profiteering by shops in Wales?

Prices have gone up more than to adjust for the minimum 50p a unit.

I complained to Aldi about this one (just noticed it's withdrawn now). It was £3.99 in England but £5.25 in Wales

At 13% it should have been £0.50 x 0.75 ltrs x 13% = £4.88

They told me the rule was only a minimum but they could charge what they wanted. Profiteering, 37p extra a bottle.

No, it was designed that way, the WAG made reference to it in our training material. MUP has little support in the profession.

For Nicki Briant, 25, pornography left her with negative feelings about sex

Oh when I read that I assumed she was an ex-porn star who had bad experience and packed it in.

Having seen her face though I realise I must have been wrong.

Funny, I was doing similar sorts of tactical appreciations back in March.  Old habits eh!

Sums up our consumerist society as expected:

A ban on supermarkets selling non-essential items during Wales' lockdown will be reviewed after the weekend, First Minister Mark Drakeford has said.

Pressure has mounted on the Welsh Government to reverse the decision to prohibit supermarkets from selling items such as clothes and microwaves.

The largest petition ever submitted to the Senedd has now passed 45,000 signatures.

Mr Drakeford said the Welsh Government was ensuring "common sense is applied".

We’ll be reviewing how the weekend has gone with the supermarkets and making sure that common sense is applied. Supermarkets can sell anything that can be sold in any other type of shop that isn't required to close. In the meantime, please only leave home if you need to.

At least he's asking this time, not ordering.  But who are these people applying common sense?  I see none, just those applying common purpose.
