Police were seen speaking to individuals sunbathing alone or with a partner in Greenwich Park, Hyde Park and St James' Park in London yesterday.
Yet B&Q's decision to reopen 130 stores saw massive queues forming outside its outlets in Watford, Edinburgh, Bristol and Swansea, as people used the shutdown to catch up on DIY.
There is only one boss. The customer. And he can fire everybody in the company from the chairman on down, simply by spending his money somewhere else.
