Two women were interrogated and fined by police for going on a walk in a remote area 5 miles from where they lived despite this not being illegal under coronavirus laws.

The pair were intercepted by officers after driving to Foremark Reservoir in Derbyshire.

After being told that the hot drinks they were carrying constituted a “picnic,” officers then told the women, Jessica Allen and Eliza Moore, that driving for exercise was “not in the spirit” of lockdown.

Allen said she assumed “someone had been murdered” when she arrived on the scene given the number of police at the location and was “stunned” when they immediately began questioning her and her friend.

“I said we had come in separate cars, even parked two spaces away and even brought our own drinks with us. He said ‘You can’t do that as it’s classed as a picnic’,” said Allen.

The pair had driven to the beauty spot because it was less crowded than other areas near where they live.

“I was so shook up afterwards,” she said. “The fact they read my rights. I thought ‘Am I going to prison for going on a walk?'”

“I’m not a criminal but we were treated as if we were criminals and it really made me feel for those people who are wrongly arrested and questioned by police, because it wasn’t a nice situation to be in.”

Ms Allen said she took the pandemic “very seriously” as her brother is a doctor on a COVID ward in London, but that she has been forced to close her business and suffers from anxiety.

The women were fined £200 each, despite the fact that traveling for exercise is not illegal under COVID restrictions.

“There is no law against travelling to exercise. The guidance is not legally binding and the police have no power to enforce it unless it is reflected in the lockdown regulations which in this case it is not,” barrister Adam Wagner told BBC News.

Authorities claimed it was up to the discretion of individual police officers to decide on whether an offense has been committed, but failed to clarify what is meant by “local area.”

Derbyshire Police is the same force that previously received criticism for using a surveillance drone to spy on dog walkers in remote areas of the Peak District during the first lockdown.

Pew Survey Finds COVID Has Virtually Disappeared as a Major Concern For Americans

It’s over, but some restrictions remain.

Illustrating how the issue has largely disappeared, a new poll of Americans finds COVID to be the least of their concerns out of a list of 12 different subjects.

The survey was conducted by Pew Research between April 25-May 1.

Just 19 per cent of respondents said COVID was still a “very big problem,” while 31 per cent said it was a “small problem” and a further 12 per cent said it was “not a problem at all.”

In comparison, 70 per cent of Americans said inflation was a “very big problem,” with a further 23 per cent describing it as a “moderately big problem.”

Ten other issues, including violent crime, illegal immigration and the condition of infrastructure, all rank above COVID-19 in terms of being more of a concern.

As one commentator observed, the war in Ukraine appears nowhere on the list, although Pew chose not to include it as an option.

“Democrats are nearly four times as likely as Republicans to rate climate change as a very big problem (63% vs. 16%),” reports Pew. “Republicans, by contrast, are far more likely than Democrats to view illegal immigration as a very big problem (65% vs. 19%).”

Despite the pandemic virtually being over, numerous states are still enforcing indoor mask mandates and other COVID restrictions that refuse to die.

As we highlighted yesterday, Broadway star Patti LuPone launched an angry rant at an audience member for not wearing a mask properly during a Q&A session despite the fact that she wasn’t wearing one inside the theater.

Broadway Star Angrily Lectures Audience Member For Not Wearing a Mask While Not Wearing a Mask

“It’s okay when we do it!”

Broadway star Patti LuPone launched an angry rant at an audience member for not wearing a mask properly during a Q&A session, despite the fact that neither LuPone or any of her colleagues were wearing masks at all.

LuPone was appearing alongside her “Company” costars at the American Theatre Wing when she appeared to target a woman sat near the front for not wearing her face mask over her nose.

“Put your mask over your nose. That’s why you’re in the theater,” LuPone screeched.

“That is the rule. If you don’t want to follow the rule, get the fuck out. I’m serious, she added while gesticulating aggressively. “Who do you think you are if you do not respect the people sitting around you?”

When one audience member dared to respond, “I pay your salary,” LuPone shot back.

“You pay my salary? Bullshit!” Chris Harper pays my salary,” she said, referring to the show’s producer.

No one in the audience pointed out the ultimate irony – LuPone was lecturing everyone else in the room for not wearing a mask properly while she wasn’t wearing one at all, and neither were any of her colleagues.

LuPone previously missed 10 performances earlier this year after testing positive for COVID-19, despite being fully vaccinated.

As ever, LuPone responded by thanking the vaccine.

During a previous appearance on The View, the actress also demanded that mask mandates in theaters be kept in place for much longer.

“Just because those theaters are old, the seats are close, and we’re not out of this,” she said.

As we have exhaustively highlighted, there is no scientific evidence that masks have any measurable impact on stopping the spread of COVID-19, but they have been more successful in stunting the cognitive development of babies and toddlers.

The UK government’s own investigation found that the evidence for the efficacy of face masks stopping the spread of COVID-19 in schools is “not conclusive.”

According to University of Oxford Professor Jim Naismith, when England dropped face mask mandates back in July and Scotland maintained them, it made “no meaningful difference” to infection rates.

We previously highlighted the comments of UK government SAGE adviser Dr Colin Axon, who dismissed masks as “comfort blankets” that do virtually nothing, noting that the COVID-19 virus particle is up to 5,000 times smaller than the holes in the mask.

“The small sizes are not easily understood but an imperfect analogy would be to imagine marbles fired at builders’ scaffolding, some might hit a pole and rebound, but obviously most will fly through,” Axon said.

Given that the event was a Q and A, and not a theatrical performance, LuPone and her colleagues could have easily all worn masks, but chose not to, while imposing the rule on everyone else in the room.

Apparently, they’re better than you, and different rules apply.

“It’s okay when we do it!”
