What if it's a pickled egg and crisps on the same plate and you eat them with a knife and fork?

Naw

How about a bowl of soup, or a sandwich?

Aye

What about toast and jam? I have that for my breakfast quite a lot, so surely it counts as a meal.

Naw

Because of your spoiler I always assume you are blaming Berkshire for anything Covid.

More than happy to pin the blame for all the world's ills on Slough, tbh!

But as either Whitty or Valance said it just means they don't fully comply.
It could be walking the dog or into the supermarket for 10 minutes.

Isolation rules do not permit visits to a Supermarket that's a total no no. There must be a fair amount of spread from contacts not isolating properly or positive testers not revealing contacts or those contacts not being contactable.

You can only leave your accommodation in limited circumstances. These include where:

  • you need access to basic necessities like food and medicines (including for any pets or animals in the household), but please try to first arrange for these to be delivered to you instead to reduce the number of times you need to leave your accommodation

That's quarantine rules (returning from abroad), we were discussing self isolating following a positive test or tracing procedure

In other words, no.

Depends on your level of deprivation.  Some of my patients see a packet of crisps as a meal.  They're idea of fruit is some cider.

It was in the context of a restaurant / pub purchase. Perception of what constitutes a meal in general will indeed depend on your circumstances but in terms of ordering food in licensed premises I'm pretty sure the vast majority of folk realise the difference !

Do you have evidence to substantiate that claim that the great British public who voted for brexit and bojo have the capability to do that.

Would ordering a wee pie for 90p constitute a meal, it may for some.

Toasty jammy dip dip

I presume we are all agreed that the correct term for sausage is square.  Anything else is the mindset of a nonce.

Anyone who can’t grasp this is very definitely at it. If your establishment has a regular menu that goes from pie n beans to steak pie or fish n chips, it’s a substantial meal. Or if the best you can do is a range from a bag of crisps up to a pie out the heater that has hastily been found in the cellar and had the dust wiped off it, it’s not.

Is a "lite-bite" a substantial meal? Could you have a glass of wine if out for lunch and ordering a panini and a side salad?

It may seem like a frivolous point to you and I, but it's the "if you are not sure if you are a café or a restaurant you should close" scenario again. It's not useful for business owners who need to order supplies; it's not useful for the staff who are deciding who is and isn't being protected from the virus by their food; and, crucially, it's no use for your average person who just wants to nip out for a bite to eat and wash it down with a drink.

Again, the obvious pitfall of rushing things through without proper engagement, scrutiny or debate has surfaced.

I like your thinking. I've said before, I don't mind getting a pie every time I order a drink. Several pies are surely a substantial meal?
