Subject: RE: BS: New news on the pandemic COVID-19
Dropping the requirement to wear masks on crowded tube trains and so at this point forth strikes me as pretty crazy. It may serve it's purpose as "Red Meat" for the potentially mutinous Tory backbenches, but I don't sense there's too much appetite for chucking common sense among most people.
But trusting on people to be sensible doesn't solve the problem of the selfish minority who throw over solidarity for misplaced "individual choice".
Freedom of choice ceases to apply when it involves putting others at risk and reducing their freedom to feel free.
