Do you think this is a good idea? Is this something you are prepared to do?

What next? We hold a bell and chant, ‘Unclean, Unclean’?

Certainly not. Shades of Hitler making the Jews wear Star of David armbands!

I dislike being labelled and the wearing of ribbons for this, that and the other is totally out of hand now. Who I do/do not support is between me and my conscience.

Very wise and - in my opinion - that is all that is needed.

Re: Would You Wear Ribbons To Indicate You Are Social Distancing?

I followed the rule, pre the rule and will continue to do so post the rule, the system was not geared to worry about any given individual, but to stop an onslaught, nothing has changed as far as the individual is concerned Imo.

Re: Would You Wear Ribbons To Indicate You Are Social Distancing?

Just like those green P signs when you pass your driving test - a magnet for the antisocial. But if it's just a little thing then it's not like they can easily see a ribbon from a distance of 2 metres.

Ribbon? We both carry a can of Ralgex. It's not quite as effective as mace or CS gas but it's bloomin' close when sprayed into a face and of course we have a perfect excuse for carrying it too.

Better to issue tasers, they would certainly guarantee `social distancing`.
