By all means protest outside but going into a supermarket full of anger like this should not be acceptable?

I see wearing a mask as a short-term measure which may, just, help slightly slow down the spread of Covid . It is a minor issue- I wear one maybe twice a week for 15 minutes. I'm happy to do so as it might help a bit, it makes others feel better, and it doesn't put others (eg staff) in a possible uncomfortable position of wondering whether to 'challenge' me. If it...

They should have been arrested and the organisation proscribed.
damn savages!
yes we know the whole mask thing is bow locks but just play along, no need to get angry about it.

Conduct likely to cause a breach of the peace ?

Scaring shoppers with their angst, not only not wearing a mask which we are told to in shops but shouting 'Take no notice of anything you're told to do'
Wrong, TTT.

Breach of the peace? The copper's catch-all.
If they'd been in Sainsbury's yesterday, I would have happily taken my hot, oppressive mask off! Probably joined 'em too.
In The Sun’s list of places where masks have to be worn shops and supermarkets aren’t mentioned. Perhaps we don’t have to wear them after all?
Correct, clover. Merely government advice.

But you did wear one ILM so at least you did abide by the mandatory rules :0)
...with exceptions you could drive a coach and horses through. In any case, it would not be an arrestable offence (see PACE).
Not really Bobbi, I wear it mainly round my chin in this heat so I can breathe!
JD yes Breach of the peace, but also not wearing a mask in a shop is now illegal too.

I agree they're pesky to wear but think this lot were even peskier and just wanted notoriety
I don't like wearing the masks one bit, particularly in this hot weather, but if it makes a small difference to the number of people being struck down with this awful virus, so be it.
