If I am against lockdowns, I don't see the point with the masks.
For me, the mistake of the lockdowns was to provide a brainless solution that works yes but isn't reliable in time, and is here just to hide the lack of competency of the governments (some will say they did it everywhere, and I don't care, I'll never follow the lath of mediocrity)
But for the masks? They can be an useful tool to ensure that this winter, the NHS will be able to handle a huge wave of COVID because it might prevent the Covid but also the flu and other respiratory diseases.
Of course some people are a bit ridiculous, watering them alone in their car, but hey, it's their freedom after all.
In addition to that, and unlike a lot of other countries, the regulations about masks in UK makes sense (more or less, I don't see the point to wear it while walking in a pub but anyway). In my country for example, it was mandatory even outside, while scientists repeated again and again that it was totally useless
Now, what should be forbidden, it's all those masks who are just worth nothing because they are just cheap shit from China.
But... Hey, for the moment we have the freedom to wear it or not, let's just treat other people like we would like to be treated. It's their freedom, if they feel it's better like this, let them wear masks. I totally agree that a pandemic should not be managed by coercition, and I don't want to be in the other side of coercition
