    Indeed.

    but what does "absoluteluy necessary" mean?

    for the nation?

    for the business?

    for your wage packet, mortgage, HP payments etc etc?

    That's the issue here. I'm told Sadiq Khan has said that for the self-employed, working is "absolutely necessary" - but I cant find an online link (to that to be fair)

    Not that I disbelieve you CR but do you have a link to that? So _I_ can reference it if needed elsewhere

    1. STAYING AT HOME
    You should only leave the house for one of four reasons.
    ● Shopping for basic necessities, for example food and medicine, which must be as infrequent as
    possible.
    ● One form of exercise a day, for example a run, walk, or cycle - alone or with members of your
    household.
    ● Any medical need, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person.
    ● Travelling to and from work, but only where this absolutely cannot be done from home.

    and what does "absolutely neccesary" really mean - for society? or for a busniess ?

    and we can get by without the van :-) it was merely an example of differing interpretations...

    didds
    The Beer? We certainly can survive without it. Cake? Well that is more open to debate.

    All (and I'm watching the health sec's brodcast now) this shows is the governments of both UK and Wales are not senting the right message out to the public. To many companies will flaunt the guidlines workers will be pressurised. The Governments needs to provide a clear list of industries that need to be open, ALL the rest should be closed.

    The trouble with "Well I can maintain 2 mtrs" when you are driving round in a van etc What if you have an accident? What if someone driving down a road breaks down. Someone has to come out to assist them.

    Why not say NO TRAVEL / WORK unless VITAL ( and the government makes that call).

    Lots of people are vital. If you have ordered food and medicine a delivery driver is vital. If the van breaks down the mechanics are vital. If your tap is spouting floods of water a plumber is vital .

    But of I want prettier taps in my bathroom, the plumber is not vital.
    If a hospital needs a new tap, the plumber is vital again

    At some point we have to allow discretion, rules can't all be top down
