Mum fined for breaking lockdown rules to babysit - your views online
Absolutely disgusting, she was helping out a friend who was in her bubble anyway and he was injured so she looked after his child. This government will continue to ruin the people in this country no matter what. Get rid of them and I hope she doesn't pay the fine, as I wouldn't.
Mr and Mrs Cummings drove miles with Covid symptoms to get his family to babysit!
Even stranger considering Boris had a guest stay over on Christmas night because she was part of his son’s childcare bubble.
It seems to be, as per the norm, one rule for us ordinary, law-abiding folks and one for them.

“But after an apparent ‘tip off’ about a party at the home, police turned up and found the girls watching a film with hot chocolates.” Yup, this is where we’re at now… ‘History doesn’t repeat itself, but it often rhymes’
Childcare was the only exemption during lockdown.

Shocking, don't pay a penny.
Shocking, but on the other hand rules are only made for certain individuals.
This week last year the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited Scotland, at a time when we were not allowed to leave our local authority area. No one seemed bothered by this or other infringements of Covid restrictions by members of the Royal Family.
Absolutely disgusting behaviour by the police and a government who enforced this. That woman’s fine should be written off and should never had happened.
This is getting beyond a joke now.
Just don't pay it. I would rather go to prison for 14 days.

Yet Boris can have a Christmas party! I know what I’d be saying to them.
What’s the best thing about Edinburgh at Christmas time?
Running round Arthur’s Seat on Christmas morning, watching the city wake up before settling down to overindulge in all the yummy Christmas food and wine!

Lights all around town. So awesome!
Sitting round the Christmas table with all my family...such beautiful memories.
Had a look at this year’s Christmas market - not impressed.
Watching the ice skaters fall over from the mulled wine bar on George Street!
When you get away from Princes Street Gardens and can relax after fighting through the crowd.
It used to be all the great shops. Not now.
The Castle at night, beautiful.
Finishing work for the year and avoiding the centre of town!
Just love the Christmas markets and all the lights and decorations.

It “was” Jenners
Living in the most amazing city in the world.
The tree on the Mound, that’s it.
I believe the Christmas Market is the Best in Europe.
Everything. It’s quite magical.
Keeping well out of the city - works for me
All the old town buildings in the snow.
