I really don't get this stupid rules .
T shirts is right there in the shop , you can touch them , but can't buy them.
It is not like some 1000 people have to come in contact to make the bloody thing and run a risk of spreading the virus , for me to buy it .
It is already in the store .

Sigh instead of easing lockdowns they just draft more stupidity. How about clothing stores are open, it's simplier and you don't have to waste time drawing up stupid lists. But oh wait this is the muppet who didn't want hot foods sold.

Totalitarian central planning at its most absurd.

You have to wonder how it is possible that the committee that drew up this list did not at some point realize that the list encompasses so many clothing categories that there would be zero benefit to not just allow all sales.

Is it really going to make one jot of difference to the spread of Covid-19 that people can buy all types of shoes except for slip slops? All that this sheer stupidity has achieved is to saddle retailers with a complex administrative burden.

It‘s frankly insane.

You can buy t-shirts if the shop makes it clear they are to be worn under a jersey or jacket. That’s how silly this is.

This is the thing, did someone literally sit there and thought about it, like seriously wasted brain power in putting this list together? I mean there are more important things to worry about. But hey let's restrict further.

No my son, you misunderstand. This is all done for your health and for the good of the country, do not question the overlords. They are making immense sacrifices for your health here

Yes because me getting new underwear is going to get the coronavirus. Instead of realising the more restrictions they place on people they create more issues where people go out actively looking for things.
Also if they restrict what can be worn, people will spend more time in the shop trying to find something instead of less.

  • Whatever goes upon two legs is an enemy.
  • Whatever goes upon four legs, or has wings, is a friend.
  • No animal shall wear clothes.
  • No animal shall sleep in a bed.
  • No animal shall drink alcohol.
  • No animal shall kill any other animal.
  • All animals are equal.

The virus lives on underwear for longer, and its closer to the skin, so they're doing it for your health

Some people make masks out of T-Shirts. Now that is very dangerous, similar to smoking.
