Local Whistleblowing

Throughout this crisis some people have ignored the rules of lockdown by continuing their previous social activities, having multiple friends from other areas to visit, having street parties, going out when they and where they like. This selfish behaviour is putting the rest of us at risk. Appoint one person in each council to be a point of contact to report this behaviour. We need to reduce the number of new cases and bring these selfish people into line. Charging a fine or a deduction of their benefit might, just might, make a difference.

Why the contribution is important

The Police are busy enough, the Council are best placed to help us. The number of new cases could be lower if the rules of lockdown were enforced. The sooner everybody sticks to the rules, the sooner we will be out of danger.

    whistleblowing and naming and shaming has been one of the worst things about this

    Spying on neighbours? Didn't that happen in the Nazi regime? Mob rule next? No thank you. We are civilised people and must cling on to our civil liberties no matter what.

    Hearing all teh stories about people spying & informing on their friends and neighbours is dreadful. If it happened inanother country we would be having a fit but for some reason people now think it is acceptable.

    Really ...tell on our neighbours? Yes this was the experiment used by the Nazis, and other policing agencies in mainly communist bloc countries. Simply an appalling idea

    I agree regards a process for street parties. A permit should be needed. My neighbour has been running events in the street to try and entertain folks, and to promote his business online. But now it's getting out of hand. I came home on VE day to find a group of strangers having taken over my garden. I've since been sent posts that show more people had been there around this one wee table. From the photos it has shown at least 7 households all together, no sign of social distancing at all. The organiser told them it was OK but I hadn't given them permission nor did they have a legal right to be there and I don't even know these people. Permits used to be required. This way someone is accountable for the mess and damage left behind. My plants were damaged, solar lights broken etc. I agree we don't want nazi Britain but this isn't about that. I overheard people saying they were working as carers and after what I witnessed I know feel all carers should sign a additional document to be added to their employment contract that they will adhere to government policy in their personal life as not to endanger their clients. It's immoral and irresponsible.
