Rejected petition Stop forcing members of the public to wear mask or face coverings.
Face mask/coverings Should be a choice, too many stories coming to light of how these face coverings are making healthy people unwell. We have been told time and time again they are not effective and it’s a little late in the game to push them on us, considering MPs don’t even wear them.
If people want to wear mask/face coverings then that should be their choice but to enforce it goes against our human rights. The government guidance only advises face mask for those in a medical environment, so going against their own advice , makes perfect sense. Plenty of evidence on the internet to show how bad it is for our health. Lets not forget about environmental impact,Mask are not being disposed of correctly..
