I can understand the reasoning behind local restrictions/lockdowns, but for ie. Scotland to be different overall rules to England makes no sense whatsoever, especially the groups under 6 with/without kids. A lot of people get confused easy enough as it is, if it’s to do with the ‘experts’ agreeing then bang their darned heads together and get on with it. Me personally - I’ll listen then do what I consider safe for us, which is a sight better than what I’m being asked/told to do! But then I was always, over safety conscious, I should have worked for Health and Safety, I would have been very popular. Not.Different situations, different rules. Why are people surprised? In most countries, different rules have been implemented in different regions. Australia varies from state to state, as does Germany. What makes the UK any different just because the word "United" is in the name?
