There seems to be an increase in the number of masks and gloves littering pavements.
The problem there is these people are massive bell-ends.

The horse has not bolted. Wrong metaphor entirely. The virus is still very much present and will be infecting people until such time as either everyone's had it (and either lived to tell the tale or not) or there's a successful vaccine (it may be that having had it doesn't actually provide a long term immunity, we're not actually sure of that yet, along with a lot else, and a vaccine isn't necessarily a "silver bullet" either).
Cynical as I am about the crooks in charge at Westminster, active containment measures seem to be helping where they're taken and things are not going so well where they're not.

If you want a reasonable one then that would involve a medical exemption. I wouldn't put running a clear risk of needlessly endangering others as reasonable. How would you feel if e.g. a surgeon operating on you felt they could do without one, because it's more comfortable for them?
