Police last night revealed extraordinary plans to patrol the Anglo-Welsh border to stop families from crossing over for a half-term holiday as Wales is plunged into a two-week 'firebreak' lockdown.
Officers will prevent caravans sneaking into England from Wales and deter Welsh motorists defying First Minister Mark Drakeford's 'power-mad' orders from making 'non-essential' journeys.
And despite the police union's protestations, you just know there are some in the forces that are going to enjoy this, don't you, Reader?
But the Police Federation of England and Wales has revealed that the ban is 'unenforceable', adding that policing which is 'already over-stretched due to the pandemic' would be complicated by the measure.
Really? Hadn't noticed them not responding to gatherings, unless they are of course those held by the protected groups...
Tesco and Lidl workers became Wales' first 'trolley police' as they were seen hiding shelves of 'non-essential' products behind plastic sheets to stop customers buying them ahead of the start of the restrictions, which came in earlier this evening.
Plastic barriers and stacks of drinks crates were also set up to block off certain aisles while other items were taped off by staff as part of efforts to follow the draconian new rules.
*stunned amazement* What's the point of this?
Mr Drakeford described stopping supermarkets from selling non-essential products during the firebreak lockdown as 'a straightforward matter of fairness'.
He said: 'We are requiring many hundreds of small businesses to close on the high street right across Wales.
'We cannot do that and then allow supermarkets to sell goods that those people are unable to sell.'
This is the 'fairness' of spoiled children: "If I can't have it, no-one can!"
'And we are looking to minimise the amount of time that people spend out of their homes during this two-week period.
'This is not the time to be browsing around supermarkets looking for non-essential goods.'
Least you think 'Ah, well, it's just Wales':
Makes sense, I suppose. It's 'Try (Communism) before you buy'!
