Still confused why Kingston garden centre open but other garden centres are shut? Also are lewes news and libdem leaflets essential - got both through my door this week in Southover. Both local conservative and Labour say they arenít delivering in lockdown. Maybe Iím confused by the rules...

That's what the rules are meant to do.

You can definitely blame the rulemakers for that. Boris Johnson, despite his bluster and love of being the eccentric man of the people and Etonian orator, is actually a really poor communicator. This usually happens when you don't have a plan, and spend most time deciding how to protect the ego.

I am afraid that the LibDems always ignore campaigning etiquette/protocol. What a shower to be campaigning during these dark days. Norman Baker infected Lewes and delivered absolutely nothing although he would turn up anywhere for the opening of an envelope! For me, Boris & Co are doing their best and, so us in Sussex, must just stick it out so that we can get back to Bills soon!

Isn't it time for the Lib Dems to divide into their three component parts - Tories, Labour and Greens? This ragbag of a party is a bit of a nuisance.

Baker was the best mp this constituency ever had. To replace him with this utterly despicable self-serving Tory puppet was a travesty.

16 Jan 10-37: essential and non-essential are not important. In at least England, if a shop etc is allowed to open at all, it can sell whatever it wants. SI 1374 2020 Schedule 3A Part 3 sub-paragraph 17 (u) explicitly allows garden centres to remain open; but whether the proprietors think it is worth it ... During the first lockdown Castle Garden stayed open for takeaway only, but Ask didn't bother.
Absence from home is allowed with reasonable cause (Part 1 sub-sub-paragraph 1 (2) (a)), examples of which are given in paragraph 2. If I were leafletting, I would go for sub-sub-paragraph (5) (a) (unable to work from home, voluntary work) or (carrying a bag of leaflets up Lewes hills) sub-sub-paragraph (2) (c) (exercise)!

Iím disappointed with the LibDems and the Lewes News people to be honest - this is the highest level of lockdown in a pandemic where thousands of people are dying - we can do without their stuff being delivered for a few weeks. Especially when the deliverers going house to house looked quite old to me.

I rather admire the lib Dems for their efforts while everyone's creeping about like frightened mice, at least they're doing something. And robert, what an ageist little prig you are, I suppose you're upset because mummy won't let you out. Up to bed with you this instant. And and, what's this snidey stuff about opening envelopes phellow, say what you mean or shut up.

Desperately trying to find a taxi to fit in?

All they are doing is stuffing letterboxes with their propaganda.
And they are no longer democratic- they blatantly refused to recognise the result of the Brexit referendum.

I see the Greens are doing it as well now. Bit odd to me that these two are still delivering but there you go.
