Wales began their 17 day lockdown on Saturday and the supermarkets it seems have wasted no time in assisting the lockdown by sectioning off and banning the purchase of what they deem to be ‘Non Essential’ items.
So what exactly is ‘non-essential’ items?
Non-Essential classification of products in Wales
That’s right, baby textiles apparently are not essential as winter sets in here in the UK. I’m sure an old blanket or some hand-me-downs from a friend will be fine. Oh wait, sorry you can’t see your friends either, stick with an old blanket.
Baby Textiles barred from public purchase in supermarkets across Wales
I should mention that this is not something all supermarkets have decided to do, it seems to be on a shop-by-shop basis.
Both Sainsburys and Asda are still reported to be business as usual, while Tesco seems to have gone ‘Full-Covid’ across the Country.
Wales’ second lockdown is pretty much the same has the first Lockdown, with all non-essential workers housebound, schools closed with the exception of years 7 & 8 and only essential shopping trips allowed.
Scotland has been in their second lockdown also for over a week now and while Boris and his gang of clowns remain defiant against imposing a second lockdown, a so-called ‘circuit-breaker’, I fear one such lockdown is imminent.
Who would have thought the ‘Covid-Circus’ would still be in full swing over 9 months after it began, isn’t the majority bored with this yet?
I certainly am!
