    Meanwhile at: The Deva Stadium:
    It was the first Football League ground to be built in compliance with the Taylor Report, published following the Hillsborough Disaster in 1989, and it may be the only football ground in the world to straddle the border of two countries, with the offices
    A ground that welcomes all within and without the local Community, however, .....

    Yes WOLF.
    What a load of twaddle.
    And this is just another example of the crass stupidity of it all.
    Hardly any of it makes any common sense!

    The natives are revolting though.
    Look at the video and read this, and well done that man!

    North Wales Tesco shopper filmed ripping-off covers on 'non-essential' items - and why he did it

    North Wales Tesco shopper filmed ripping-off covers on 'non-essential' items - and why he did it
    Gwilym Owen told North Wales Live he'd 'had enough' of the Welsh Government's restrictions when he pulled the plastic sheets off at store in Bangor.

    The video which was posted to Facebook shows Gwilym Owen, 28, removing plastic sheets off items in the F&F clothing section in Bangor Tesco Extra store last night.

    Mr Owen who is unmasked in the footage, told North Wales Live he felt compelled to do "what [he] could to stop it (the Welsh Government's ban)".

    It confirmed the policy on Thursday giving the big supermarkets just 24 hours notice to implement it.

    It now means that the likes of Tesco can't sell items such as clothing, books and DVDs in Wales until November 9.

    The policy has been labelled "absurd" by some and led to criticism across the UK.

    Mr Owen shared a video of his actions on Facebook earlier today, which has attracted over 12,000 shares.


    In it he is filmed by a friend as he removes tape from children's clothes.

    He can be heard calling the decision to ban these products "a f***ing disgrace," because it's almost winter.

    Tesco staff attempt to intervene, to which he says: "Since when have clothes been 'non essential'?"

    In a lengthy post accompanying the video, Mr Owen said he'd "had enough last night" amid the policy.

    He explained: "I don't care about the backlash that I may get from this. We're heading into winter now and who would have thought clothes for children weren't essential?"

    Mr Owen added: "I'm sure there are people out there who can barely afford heating in their houses and now they want to stop people buying clothes in supermarkets.

    And there is more! :)

    Nearly 16,000 call for Welsh 'non-essential' supermarket shopping ban to be overturned

    I just signed the petition.
    How about YOU!

    Allow supermarkets to sell "non-essential" items during lockdown

    Nearly 16,000 call for Welsh 'non-essential' supermarket shopping ban to be overturned
    A petition has been launched as the Welsh Government comes under increasing pressure to lift restrictions on stores like Tesco and Asda

    Nearly 16,000 people have singed a petition calling for a lifting ban on supermarkets selling non-essential items.

    Welsh Government's firebreak lockdown includes regulations that stop supermarkets selling items like clothes, toys and games and electrical goods.

    p:nth-of-type(2)","sizes":[[8,8]],"hideOnSensitiveArticle":true,"relativePos":"after","additionalClass":"in-article","name":"div-gpt-ad-vip-slot","type":"VIP"}" data-gpt-placeholder="" data-response-start="240" data-type="gpt" style="caret-color: rgb(0, 0, 0); color: rgb(0, 0, 0); height: 8px; max-height: 8px;">
    The government said it was to stop people making unnecessary shopping trips as they try to stop the spread of the virus. The Federation of Small Businesses had also called for the ban so that local stores that had been shut in the firebreak would not lose out.

    But there has been a huge backlash against the rule as supermarkets close off aisles and shelves.

    The petition, created yesterday by Gareth Howell, has secured 15,961 signatures and counting

    You can view the petition here.

    That means it will be considered for debate at the Senedd as it has smashed the 5,000 signature threshold.

    Sources in the government this morning indicated there was no plan to change direction on the rules.

    But Tory Clwyd West MP David Jones said it will be "Amazon that cleans up".

    I saw an interview about in on SKY News last night.
    It was implemented to be fair, and to give shops (big and little) an even playing field when it came to business opportunities: -
    Seems they forgot about the internet

    They sure did WOLF.
    I am confident this badly thought out stupid idea will soon be changed so as to allow shopping for this stuff.

    It's time to lift ALL Covid restrictions.

    Protect the vulnerable, and let the rest of us get back to living our lives.

    Of course that means being sensible, but our already screwed economy can not take much more of this madness.

    If not.....
