A CORNISHMAN with no reason to visit London anytime soon has angrily refused to wear a face mask on the capital’s underground, he has stated.
Truro resident Norman Steele lives 250 miles from westmost station Chesham and works 15 minutes from home, but has nonetheless made clear his absolute refusal to wear a protective mask when boarding the Tube from July 19th.
Steele said: “Does it affect me? Yes. This is my bloody country. If the London wankers aren’t free then neither am I.
“Does it make sense? Apparently. Am I outraged by it regardless? Abso-f**king-lutely. I thought Boris was letting us take personal responsibility.
“What if my bus to Penzance gets diverted via Elephant & Castle because of roadworks? Before I know it the jackboot of Sadiq Khan’s draconian rule’s stomping down on my face.
“And all because he wants to reduce the airborne transmission of a virus in his overcrowded city without giving one thought to how it would affect proud Cornishmen, the power-crazed bastard.”
Neighbour Sue Traherne said: “Norman says he’s never going in Waterstones either. Pretty sure he’s never read a book.”
