The last one about weddings and funerals I got wrong too.

I wouldn't worry too much about that unless you're planning to get married or die soon. ;)

That quiz highlights a large part of the problem. It is titled "How much do you know about the Covid rules", but goes on to talk about "the law" in the answers.

The rules as often stated by Govt Ministers, etc are often not what is stated in law. Aaaaagggghhhhh!

Legislation = rules
Guidance = advice

Legislation = Law

Rules tend just to be official advice, and not Law.

Not in my dictionary:

rule: one of a set of explicit or understood regulations or principles governing conduct or procedure within a particular area of activity

advice: guidance or recommendations offered with regard to prudent future action

Agreed. There is a difference between legislation and advice, but rules and regulations can have legal force, eg:
UK Statutory Instruments

Rules are rules.
School rules?
Did you break any and get the cane? :wink:

rule |ruːl|
noun
one of a set of explicit or understood regulations or principles governing conduct or procedure within a particular area of activity: the rules of cricket | those who did break the rules would be dealt with swiftly.
Note "particular area of activity".

law |lɔː|
noun
[mass noun] (often the law) the system of rules which a particular country or community recognizes as regulating the actions of its members and which it may enforce by the imposition of penalties: shooting the birds is against the law | they were taken to court for breaking the law | [as modifier] : law enforcement.
Note "particular country" and "enforce" and "penalties".

Just saw a dude get on at Haymarket with a big set of golf clubs. Not the first time I have seen him do it either. Wondering what his excuse could be, or maybe he doesn't need one. Riddle me that.

You say Haymarket so assume Scotland.
The guy was off for a game of golf on his local course no doubt not going more than 5 miles outwith his authority. On the train wearing a mask, I hope, and SD . Doesn’t need an excuse all perfectly good within Scotland.
Doesn’t listen to that lot over the Border they’re totally confused. :lol:
Whatever I am, wherever I am, this is me. This is my life
