    Having argued with several police officers(and received many plaudits too I might add), you can know your rights and enforce them. It will make no difference to the outcome but take longer. PNC check is typical - which always makes me laugh.

    I am not fan of the police force, though I am hugely supportive of individual officers. At the moment, the force is doing a great job. IMO.

    They’re damned if they do damned if they dont
    if someone you know / love dies of Covid 19 and it gets worse you’ll be begging for the police and army to make people stay at home. So basically stay at ******* home

    This was actually raised by at least 2 reporters on today's CV briefing, the topic of police being over-zealous in their interpretation. Last thing you want is a policeman being given power to decide the rules.
    Quite. There is actually nothing in the law that defines what local means or that bans driving:

    ‘Stay local’ during the pandemic message strengthened

    It really makes no sense to stop people driving a couple of miles to walk in a little used area instead of walking through a built up area to exercise in a crowded park.

    A snowflake would be sitting at home refusing to go outside in case it inconvenienced a key worker, you plum.

    Yes - it's an essential food item... for a fat tulip

    This. There is, sadly, no percentage in being helpful to most coppers.
