Second UK Police Force Threatens to Check if Public Are Making “Non-Essential” Purchases

Downing Street forced to wade in as lockdown confusion grows.

Published

Downing Street has been forced to clarify that officers won’t be checking what people buy in supermarkets after yet another tweet by a police force that doesn’t understand the coronavirus lockdown laws.

The controversy began when Cambridge Police tweeted that they were monitoring “non-essential” supermarket aisles in a local branch of Tesco to make sure people weren’t purchasing frivolous items.

This prompted a public backlash from people asking the police to define precisely what a “non-essential” item was.

Cambridge Police walked back the original tweet, stating, “We are not monitoring what people are buying from supermarkets. This message was sent with good intentions by an over exuberant officer who has been spoken to since this tweet was published.”

This followed a similar faux pas yesterday when another police force warned that they could start setting up roadblocks and checking people’s shopping baskets for non-essential items, although were later forced to backtrack.

The mess prompted the government to get involved, with Downing Street assuring the public they can buy whatever is being sold at supermarkets.

“We set out a list of shops which could remain open and if the shops are on that list then they are free to sell whatever they have in stock,” the prime minister’s official spokesman said.

The government also clarified that it is not illegal for people to be outside in their own gardens following the release of a video which showed a female South Yorkshire Police officer telling a family it was against the rules for their children to be playing in their own front garden.

Meanwhile, authorities in London have provoked more fury by taping off benches in parks, prompting complaints that elderly and disabled people who may need to rest while they are out on a walk will be put at risk.

With the weather set to be good across the UK this weekend, authorities have become more stringent in emphasizing that social distancing rules must be adhered to or lockdown measures will become more draconian.

However, the lockdown will only continue to work if police maintain the public’s consent. If they become too overtly heavy-handed in enforcing it, many people will just refuse to obey the rules anyway.

Going Postal: American Postal Workers Union REJECTS Biden Vaccine Mandate

“It is not the role of the federal government to mandate vaccinations for the employees we represent”

After Joe Biden decreed Thursday that anyone working for the U.S. government will be forced to take coronavirus vaccines, the backlash began almost immediately with the American Postal Workers Union issuing a statement of defiance.

“While the APWU leadership continues to encourage postal workers to voluntarily get vaccinated, it is not the role of the federal government to mandate vaccinations for the employees we represent,” the statement urges.

It adds, “Issues related to vaccinations and testing for COVID-19 in the workplace must be negotiated with the APWU. At this time the APWU opposes the mandating of COVID-19 vaccinations in relation to U.S. postal workers.”

The APWU represents more than 220,000 United States Postal Service employees, as well as thousands of mail workers in private mail services.

The union endorsed Biden for president, but is now drawling a line on vaccine mandates.

In addition to, the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association, which represents more than 26,000 federal officers, slammed Biden’s mandate, saying that it believes requiring vaccinations represents an infringement on civil rights.

“There will be a lot of pushback. It’s going to be an avalanche,” President Larry Cosme said, adding that many within the Justice Department and the Department of Homeland Security will oppose the mandate.

The Washington Post reports that even The American Federation of Teachers, which represents nearly 200,000 health-care workers who could be affected, expressed resistance to the mandate.

“In order for everyone to feel safe and welcome in their workplaces, vaccinations must be negotiated between employers and workers, not coerced,” said the union’s president, Randi Weingarten.

Video: Biden Loses It With Reporter Who Dares Question Mask Mandate Flip Flop

“No! I didn’t say that.”

After decreeing that anyone who works in government or with government will be mandated to get vaccinated, Joe Biden began to walk away from the lecturn without a mask, prompting Fox News reporter Peter Doocy to ask why the flip flop on mandating masks, even for the vaccinated. The question triggered Biden who exploded at the reporter.

“You said if you were fully vaccinated, you no longer need to wear a mask,” Doocy told Biden

“No! I didn’t say that,” Biden snapped at Doocy, blatantly lying.

When Doocy fired back “In May, you made it sound like the vaccine was the ticket to losing the mask forever,” Biden suddenly switched to blaming unvaccinated people for his mask flip-flop.

“That was true at the time!” Biden shouted back, adding “the new variant came along and they didn’t get vaccinated.”

Watch:

He didn’t say it huh?

SHUT UP, IT’S SCIENCE.

Video: House GOP Protest Dumb Mask Mandate By Walking Into Other Half Of Building Where They’re Not Mandated

Pelosi has ordered Capitol police to arrest any visitors or staff who fail to comply with her tyranny

House Republicans protested against Nancy Pelosi’s idiotic mask mandate by walking maskless into the Senate half of the Capitol building, where there is no mandate.

The stunt was to show how idiotic Pelosi’s rules are because half of the same building is not under a mask mandate.

The Republicans, among them Chip Roy and Steve Scalise, gathered to take photos and videos.

Watch:

Pelosi has ordered Capitol police to arrest any visitors or staff who do not fall into line with her tyranny. She stopped short of ordering lawmakers to be arrested, instead suggesting they just be “reported” to SAA for any “failure to comply.”

It’s science, morons!
