I agree. Phil must be able to seek official clarification as to whether hotel restaurants are able to continue serving residents. To challenge the legality of the Prime Minister's instructions would not be helpful at all - even worse than Gina Miller's attempts to thwart Brexit. I doubt if a Police Officer would be very tolerant if one comes knocking on the hotel's door.

The police officer's face, when I point out to him that there is as yet no law which he can legitimately seek to enforce ?  :angel:

The BBC say: "Hotels, hostels, campsites and caravan parks must also close unless key workers need to stay there, or if other people staying there cannot return to their primary residence." But will Phil still argue it doesn't apply to their hotel?

I'm sure he will, until the Bill is passed in Parliament - and rightly so.

The BBC do not make the law, George, any more than does the Prime Minister.  Parliament makes the laws, and honest citizens then obey them.  The hotel is closed to all casual guest, while remaining open to key workers — not because the law requires it (as yet it doesn't), not because the Prime Minister has told hotels that they must close, but because it is the right thing to do.  Just as, even if murder were not against the law, I would not go around murdering people.

Our PM must be reading the BBC playbook.  This is very close to last nights stage 2 announcement, with the addition of sex parlors, nail clinics, massage parlors, adult entertainment theaters among other leisurely activities.  Imagine if you were stuck in an adult entertainment theater and couldn't return to your primary residence.

Thank you, VC.  I am maintaining a directory of Covid-19 links for the Bodmin Chamber of Commerce, and have just added yours.

A wee picture, to cheer you up during these difficult times, of the recent addition to the Garp household - Rosie the Lhasa Apso puppy.
