I don't believe I would have slated anyone who kept to the rules. What I was commenting on and didn't make clear that some weird situations can arise whilst still being withing the rules. This one up the road looked really weird. Google earth suggests that their rear garden fences are the original (4ft?) short ones. We put up 6ft around our back. Thing is when people walk past our front they can pass within 2 meters of me when i'm washing or polishing the car. should they move away from me or should I move back every 5 mins or so? - totally nuts.
People sat in their garden having a drink etc is ok. People sat in the street is against the rules. From day one it said people are stay in their gardens and not have social gatherings.
Yesterday the news channels were celebrating these parties. From what I could see today most of now slating them. Including images of people doing the konger dance with 2m of rope between each person.
People can do what they want as far as I am concerned, but if it's done in front of me or will effect me I will let them know. I know I can give my appreciation to the nhs and other key workers knowing I am doing my bit to stick to the rules. Others are just hypocrits
