The continuation of compulsory mask-wearing after June 21 and its anti-social impact in local shops, pubs and cafes and market places has to stop.

The only likely beneficiaries will be the manufacturers, suppliers and investors who have profited hugely from a nationwide captive market created thanks to lobbying, vested interests and media-backed scaremongering.


Vaccinations are stemming the tide of the pandemic not facial fabric.

The most vulnerable are now protected and the rest of the population is unlikely to die even if the virus continues to spread.

Anyone who promotes the continuation of the wearing face masks in the current climate should have their links to the mass mask market checked before they are given publicity in any media outlets and shamed if found to be capitalising on the nation’s misfortune.
