This Site owes thanks to the readers who have suggested ways shops can encourage customers to wear face masks, even though the Tory government wimped out of making it compulsory in England.

Consensus seems to be that shops could buy their own supply, for customers to take at the door and either buy (to use elsewhere as well) or leave 9to be cleaned and reused, perhaps):

It makes sense.

But, as the headline states, there’s a catch – epitomised in this tweet:

Daniel appears to be trying to recruit support for a false argument: I never stated that anybody was “pigheaded” in their attitude to face masks, and the comments about them being a “servile submission to power that reinforces government propaganda” are entirely his own.

His comment about the infection rate is misleading, as in parts of the country it is much higher (at the time of writing), and apparently he has never heard of asymptomatic transmission of the virus (even though it’s quite a big thing with leading health organisations).

But his attitude is popular among a certain segment of the population and leads to the sort of behaviour described in this tweet:

And that’s the problem.

You can lead a horse’s arse to a bidet but you can’t make it wash.

A segment of the UK public is determined to see the call to wear face masks as an insult, rather than protection, and may become belligerent at even being offered them.

Have YOU donated to my crowdfunding appeal, raising funds to fight false libel claims by TV celebrities who should know better? These court cases cost a lot of money so every penny will help ensure that wealth doesn’t beat justice.
