Why would you lock the country down, during a pandemic, but then allow a subset of the nation to gather in large crowds ?
To allow people to gather in large numbers, under the guise of protest, in numbers denied to the general populace, makes no sense at all.
BBC News – Coronavirus: Protests should be allowed during lockdown, say 60 MPs and peers https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-56466291
These 60 politicians have their heads firmly stuck where the sun don’t shine.
We have seen, time and time again, that those that gather in protest, don’t social distance, many don’t wear masks, and many are there to cause mischief requiring intervention by the police, who are then put at risk.
If the government listens to these idiots they are asking for trouble.
