Well, I won’t be shopping there again. 😁
Yes; they’ve been given orders. The CEO’s of these companies are some of the most important people in the country. Of course they’ve had a consultation with the government, this is the countries food supply. All I would say is boycott while you have alternatives, (as eventually there won’t be).
It’s getting harder because more people are pushing back.
I haven’t shopped at Sainsbury since they announced the safe spaces for black staff; wouldn’t want to scare their workforce by showing my white face in the store and making them serve me. Just another reason to stay away.
This was the rule at the outset of lockdown mark 1: People were queuing in single file in long lines outside supermarkets. It’s finally gone full circle, removing any easing of restrictions. It serves to add to the gravity of the ‘new variant’ along with the visual effect of long lines of people. Does this mean the lockdowns have been reset and this is just the beginning of the next year of the same, but possibly worse? I’m worried that the vaccines could make the next ‘pandemic’ worse repeating the cycle: this happened with Smallpox
I hope people continue to push back, but they need access to balanced journalism and that’s being increasingly repressed, as the propaganda is being ramped up.
All my shopping is done online now, which I’m aware is falling in with the agenda to get rid of independent shops, but it’s the only way I can do it now. It’s quite distressing also not to be able so see people’s faces when shopping. I often see a young woman and wonder what she looks like, it’s inhuman not to be able to see individuals or be able to show yourself as an individual: it’s dehumanising.
It’s very cult like, compelling everyone to be uniformly, collectively the same. Shopping is now the only time we can go out apart from exercising ( but not with cold coffee); every time we go to the supermarket the oppressive restrictions are there to remind us and we’re glad to get back home again.
I am signed up to Sainsburys emails. I received this, this morning from Sainsburys.
I have spent a lot of time in our stores over the past few days and I need to ask for your help with two key issues to keep you and all my colleagues safe.
When shopping in our stores, you must wear a mask or visor unless you have a medical exemption. And you should also shop on your own. Thank you for your support.
Security guards will support our colleagues at the front of store and will challenge customers who are not wearing masks or who are shopping in groups. I know you’ll understand and support what we are trying to do.
We have also significantly reduced the number of customers allowed in our stores at any one time to ensure social distancing is maintained at all times.
Together, these steps will go a long way to keep everyone safe, whether you are shopping or working with us.
Please wear a mask or visor and please shop alone in our stores. Thank you for helping us to keep everyone safe.
We promptly went to Sainsbury to have a look. There was no one at the door. NONE of us were wearing masks. At the till a member of staff, did pose the question, do you have a mask? A simple, NO, i replied. And we left with our shopping. Out of curiosity we drove to another huge Sainsbury, different town. My car full of 5 of us, did the same thing. This time, no one posed a question.
People NEED to stand their ground. PEOPLE need to stop being so scared. As long as they know their rights. In accordance with the Govt mask exemption website, one need not even don a face nappy, on the grounds of it, causing them distress.
The last demo i attended, when at the train station a couple of policemen asked me, do you have a mask. NO, i replied. He said you are being confrontational. Don’t be so childish, i replied. Can i assume you are exempt, said he. You can assume as you wish, i replied. He said its the law to wear one. I replied, a law is only a law, when passed in parliament & this is but a mere guideline & i therefore put it to you to do your homework. I also said under the Equality Act of 2010 Section 29(5)a that i have the legal right to sue you personally for up to £5000 for causing me distress. Whether this is entirely correct or not. Most people do NOT do their homework. And i have found on the copious times that i have been confronted, when using that Act, that people then back away.. We must stay positive & keep fighting back with positivity..
I’ve only been asked the once in a supermarket if I have a mask and that was this morning. I replied that I had an exemption and the fella said OK and went back to his kennel. That was in Tesco. Sainsbury’s is crap, so I don’t go in there. Aldi quality at Waitrose prices ain’t for me, ta.
