It is illegal for me to leave home without reasonable excuse (and I never do), for example, for essential food shopping and medicines.
But I can go to Morrisons supermarket and I can buy children's clothes, a duvet and covers, pots and pans, an iron, a microwave, lipstick and lots of other beauty products, perfume, chocolate and sweets, magazines, lottery tickets, birthday cards, the finest malt whiskies and a dozen types of fancy gin, children's toys, car shampoo, DVD box sets and flowers. I checked all that out this evening (I went as late as I could for my spuds, veg and milk and to shop for vulnerable friends).Then I can (but won't) nip to the garden centre and buy patio furniture, a nice shirt or two, a garden statue of a naked lady and a nice big pot plant.
Were I to buy any of those items, I wonder if that would mean that Morrisons and the garden centre could potentially be aiding and abetting my illegal behaviour...
