There has recently been a suggestion that the authorities should scrap all the Covid fines they have dished out but I have no idea why?
It seems to me that most, if not all of the fines have been given out for illegal gatherings, raves, parties and other similar get togethers.
I imagine that like me the majority of people have been keeping to the rules and not meeting vast numbers of friends or relatives from other households at weddings and raves and the like.
Last week or perhaps the week before there was a group of Extinction Rebellion ladies who went to town armed with club hammers and pointed chisels and proceeded to smash the windows of a well known bank, not only was this an illegal gathering but it was also an act of criminal damage, which under normal circumstances would have resulted in a criminal conviction.
I may be wrong but I have a feeling that no action was taken against these women, which is a shame as I feel if you feel that strongly about a cause you should be willing to accept the consequences of your actions even if this means you get a criminal record which affects your future job prospects for life.
As for the feckless idiots that join together for a rave or any sort of illegal gathering where you are risking spreading Covid, you deserve all you get and that includes a fine, for it has often been said, “if you can’t do the time, don’t do the crime.”
