Pete Has a Plan to Beat the System

On a metal detecting forum near you, available to everyone, you'll find some real gems that tell you a lot about the so-called responsibility of "law abiding" detectorists. Britain's sociopathic Prime Minister has opened up all sorts of possibilities for people tired of the lockdown, but the devolved governments have a bit more responsibility and listening to the experts that say that England's "stay alert" is a poorer response to the global pandemic than their "stay home". That's a bit of a problem though if you are a Welsh detectorist champing at the bit to hoik a bit more loot to add to your haul of collectables.   But Pete E from North Wales has an answer.

Luckily, I am fairly close to the border and have at least one permission on the English side, just need to check with the farmer now.

sorry to say but u could be in a sticky situation there.
Na, just going to do one of my essential travel tasks over the English border and then go on to do some metal detecting once I've crossed over... what I do in England is of no concern to Mark Drakeford or his cronies in the Welsh Assembly...
If he's carrying the virus, it might be the concern of the people near the place he's travelling to. And it will be a concern of the Welsh, if when he comes back from the trip, he picks it up and brings it back to Wales. I think Pete E really is not trying too hard to understand the whole purpose of what the government (in a totally cack-handed and ineffective way) is trying to do. He is just thinking of himself.

If travelling into Wales 'becomes an offence', then why should a metal detectorist feel that he is above the law?

TAKE A GOOD LOOK at this behaviour, for these are precisely the sort of people the PAS wants to grab more and more millions of public quid to make into the "partners" of the British Museum, archaeological heritage professionals and to whom they want us all to entrust the exploitation of the archaeological record. Take a good look and decide what you think about that as a "policy".
