Wales Lockdown - Essentials only for sale in Supermarkets !

Apparently in Wales they are going to stop supermarkets from selling clothes

Have they gone mad ?

If the point of the circuit break is to drive down social contacts to the absolute essentials, isnít blocking off the clothes aisles in the local supermarket a good idea? The more there are exceptions for the two or three weeks the less effective it will be, and the more chance thereís a need for another circuit break later on.

I just don't see any difference as to whether your choosing what biscuits to buy or choosing a pair of knickers, you're still there, it'll be back to judging people for having a hair dye in their basket 🙄

Every day I think to myself how much longer these idiots will continue to rule us.

So we have this week had the following:-

Beware of floods so don't have carpets but have stone floors and sweep the flood water out.

Nationalise the Railways as they are losing money. Mmm, lets remember British Leyland and British Steel!

Finally we have Cardiff Airport a failing enterprise propped up with £100 Million of Taxpayers money when it should be demolished and turned into a housing estate.

This is why I treat the WAG with total contempt. Two bit losers who I wouldn't send to the shops to get me 20 Bensons as they would come back with a pork pie.

I think some police tried to stop people from buying Easter Eggs during the first lockdown (until they were told to stop being such idiots), are they going to barrier off all the Christmas shelves for the duration of this lockdown ?

I work for a retailer. If it was as simple as Ďclothingí it would be quite easy. The challenge is the list of items that are Ďnon essentialí (eg a lightbulb, car accessories but not all, towels, bedding, halloween items). They are dotted all around the store. The list of categories is so long it isnít possible to put a fill block on which means it will be up the colleagues to tell customers what they can and canít buy. I fear for our colleagues out in the stores. They went through ridiculous abuse earlier this year and this will cause it to start again. People will spend longer in stores not less trying to work out what they are and arenít allowed to buy. There are no restrictions to what you can buy online for home delivery or store collection. This goes against the welsh government stating they are protecting the small businesses. They canít stop any online businesses either.

Buying food is essential, buying clothes can wait for three weeks. The more time you are shopping in the supermarket, the chance of continuing the chain of infection increases. Sure, for you it might make very little difference in the actual risk of catching and/or spreading the virus, but if exceptions are made for everyone then it begins to make a statistically significant difference. So minimise the time you spend in the supermarket, which realistically means devote that time to the essential grocery shopping.

I can see it coming, I feel sorry for families who can't afford to get their Christmas things in early.

We went into Lidl just to pick up basic, fruit, veg milk etc, it was rammed, tills were 6 people deep everyone with full baskets, so think people taking the firebreak seriously and not going to go shopping the next 17 days
