Ian Henderson of Norfolk is quite right.

What on earth is the government thinking – if anything – in not introducing the mask-wearing rule immediately, instead of this Tuesday? I have just returned from my local supermarket, and have seen most of the staff, and lots of customers, without any face covering.

No wonder this incompetent government cannot be trusted to keep us safe.
