    So if an officer asks you what you're doing, what are you required to say? Rather than explain which shop you're going to for what, etc, etc, can you simply answer "I'm off to buy essential supplies" or "I'm providing support to vulnerable people"? Is that sufficient or can they insist you go into detail?
    I've never really had any dealings with the police but I don't want to be bickering to defend the 12 bottles of red I bought from Oddbins, etc Neither do I want to be rude or seem suspicious, I just want to be firm and polite and not volunteer more than I need.

    You lot are obstinate and hate authority, so you can probably offer advice.
