In the new Boris guidelines yesterday:
You can sit in the sun in your local park, you can drive to other destinations, you can even play sports but only with members of your own household.
Note the omission? ‘In England?’
And ‘sports?’ Is this the USA? It’ll be ‘warm beers’ next.
Like Boris, there are thousands, maybe millions, in England, who have no idea that Scotland or Wales are in any way not in their country or in any way not theirs to use as they please.
We’ve already seen the arrests of a few misguided souls travelling north to places such as the fleshpots of Motherwell, when they were clearly not supposed to drive even to a country park on the edge of the same town as they live in. What will this new message mean to the millions trapped?
Angus MacNeill’s call for the border to be policed may not be enough now.
