I think the difference, Steve is that there is universal agreement about the need for double yellow lines and speed limits even if they inconvenience us. The government Covid guidelines are arbitrary and confusing (compared, say to Canada) and there is also not universal agreement between medics, epidemiologists, statisticians or politicians as to the best way to deal with this. You don't have to be a conspiracy theorist to be skeptical about the need for some of the measures. Be sensible- yes; and I like your point about the spirit not the letter. But some of the decision making is very questionable, and many medics are pointing out the hidden human cost of the Covid policies. I think there needs to be a place for healthy informed skepticism - not about the virus- but about how some of the figures are counted - and changed from week to week i terms of what they include- and certainly there should be a freedom to question the efficacy of scaled lockdown to deal with it. A German friend recently wrote on a social media post "warnings about mingling and encouragement to snoop on your neighbours is reminiscent of a very dark period in my country's history; don't go there" Her words.
