The Gloucestershire Constabulary will patrol routes from Wales and pull over drivers they believe are making long journeys. Travelers without a good excuse will be asked to turn around. If they don't comply, officers will inform their Welsh counterparts so they can take action because Gloucestershire police don't have the authority to fine people traveling from Wales, the department said.

At least it's not just here where enforcement is a patchwork of stupid.

Is 'devolved authority' the author taking a swipe at the stupidity of combating a global pandemic by passing the buck on to unequipped regional/local government? Or is it actually the pitch phrase the conservatives want to hear?

I ask only for clarification, I'm from the US and we kill thousands with this incredibly bad way of thinking.

Slightly off topic, but for those on Twitter, @RAF_Luton is a parody account doing bits on the Welsh lockdown with goodness like this.

Just keep dropping in virgin sheep until they're all tuckered out and have a sit down.

Then bring out the firebombs and flamethrowers.

That just sounds like improper placement of the explosives. Place them correctly and in enough quantity and you can reach escape velocity.

They are looking for drivers from wales. While their are some people from wales the police will be looking for pale skinned gingers.

That would be a terrible way to caulk a ship's timbers.

And you failed to capitalize the address.

It's 'Your Fatness.'

I'll forgive it this time, peon.

Why do you blame our fast food places for the slaughter? Where did their death in greasy printed paper touch you? Oh you mean the orange man. Sorry. I forgot that all the problem are one man's fault.

Why didn't you try harder to get Hillary elected? I blame you.

Devolution is the parliamentary term for allowing large degrees of self-government to other parts of the UK - Scotland does it's own thing on the same basis.  They're not being stupid, they're respecting sovereignty.

There is, of course, only one reasonable response: ever heard what the former Heather Alexander referred to as her anti-pirate song, High Barbarly?

You do not have to do any math at all, but just remember that math is the difference between reaching orbital velocity and making whale sushi.

:-D

I managed it, back in 1980.  I tricked them - I dressed as Number Two before visiting Portmeirion.  (I still have my admission ticket to The Village.)

Wouldn't it be whale sushi anyway, since the skin of a whale doesn't have the toughness to withstand that kind of acceleration?

Well, they demanded to be let to go back into packed bars with zero masks or social distancing.

They got what they wanted.

I say let them crash.

The whole point of Brexit was English jingoism and more importantly making a few rich bell-ends richer.

I'm not overly surprised Wales has gone in to lockdown. Me and the Expert family went to Pembrokeshire in August for a week. The only people wearing masks in the local supermarket were the staff and English tourists.
