You need to stop looking for loop holes in the rules.

The Lecht where utterly irresponsible and need to publicly appologize for their covidiocy .


The regulations were based on local authority areas - that was the meaning of local as in ‘local authority’, it was not looking for loopholes. It was a deliberate intention that the rules would allow people to travel for outdoor sport, level 4 restrictions were explicitly not meant to replicate the spring 2020 lockdown.

I can't seem to log in so am unable to attach photos, however look at the Lecht webcam from today (6/1/21)...
At 1110, there is a group of 7 or 8 skiers standing close together near the cafe..
At 1321, there is a group of 5 people all standing together.
At the 1421 photo, there is a group of 9 skiers (looks like ski tourers) standing in a huddle at the beginner slopes.(possibly the same group from earlier).
Not the Lechts fault as they are shut. Yes you can exercise locally, however nobody lives near the lecht (other than the owner?)and what the hell are people thinking about doing activities in groups... close together...

There has to be a balance between 'covidiocy' and people just trying to get out and preserve their mental health. It's not like they were all at an indoor rave. Try to keep the twittersphere intolerance out of WH.

Yes, the Lecht should have done better and will learn but they don't have the luxury of state cash to pay the wages and pensions unlike CML. All the private resorts have my sympathy at the moment given the conditions they're missing out on.

The Lecht base camera is an old and fairly low resolution (standard definition tv) Axis camera that takes a large number of images which are stitched together on an external server to create the one image you see - as there is a lag between images a group in real life may not actually be what it appears to be on that webcam, unless they are statues!

Indeed, the same person appears 3 times in the enclosed picture.
They saw the cam moving and followed it round so the post processing
must be happening. Maybe the Lecht should ask HIE for some money to
invest in a more modern cam..

The people in the groups in the images I mentioned above are definitely not the same people moving - they are groups of people (in one case puting skins on or off). They are all wearing different coloured clothing/hats so definitely several different people..

is this what it has come to? Members of the public scanning web cams to see if other members are following government-mandated "guidance".

pathetic.

and rather sinister.

If these clowns aren't called out, they'll keep on flouting the guidelines!

This kent flu is a pain in the ass, we need tae sort it out by any means then build a hard border.

Most ex brit colony countries handled it well too, we should try what they did if it'll help get back to normal.

Failure to follow the rules and further spreading of the virus by covidiots is mine and everyone else's damned business.

Your privacy and individual freedom stop when it impacts others, and being a covidiot impacts others.

Perhaps if the people doing it were obviously terrorists planting dirty bombs to kill people, you might have a different view? But in many respects, this is what the covidiots are doing.
