Posted by Mountain walker May 18, 05:41PM

We have just been for a daily walk. Saw a full on game or perhaps training session in Peckham Rye Park. Contact tackling etc, at least 20 players in training bibs, others watching.I am sure this is against all Covid19 advice and guidance. Presumably whoever organised this doesn't care.No sign of police. Have the authorities given up on social distancing? I don't want to be a killjoy but this felt irresponsible.

What bothers me about the government strategy, is easing lockdown before they have an intensive test, track and trace system in place. By the time we get to that, the virus could already be on its way to another peak. We also need to understand why BAME people are disproportionately impacted. It is very easy for the public to have a false sense of security while that curve is flattened but if that R number rises above 1 again, we'll be back in lockdown. On enforcement, we just do not have enough police officers and wardens etc to do that effectively.

No its not allowed .
Only one person is allowed to meet one other from another household outside at a distance !

Definitely not allowed! Please Mountain walker, could you email me any details you can, where, what time, age of players etc so that we can try and identify whether it is one of the clubs that usually use the park to play. my details are below thanks Renata

Anyone who went out for their daily exercise to Alleyns' Field or Dulwich Park at any time since the so-called (because many people have NOT adhered to it) lockdown would have seen several football sessions going on. In fact several weeks ago on Alleyns' field a man was trying to encourage people to join him and his mate in a game...a couple did before I'd left.
Also, on Sunday, late afternoon, in Dulwich Park, there was a large crowd near the Court Lane gates sitting on the grass, not social distancing.
The government have no control over these people who endanger their own lives and those of others and thereby threaten the resilience of the NHS- short of employing military tactics -so they had no choice but to ease the lockdown- it had already eased itself to a large extent.
Also given the amount of spitting attacks on front line staff, there are people who are out to deliberately infect others.

I'e just come back from Peckham Rye park and was surprised how many parents/carers of children are meeting up with others - I saw several groups of multiple adults/children with no social distancing going on whatsoever. Children all freely mixing and playing together.

Renata, you say it is definitely not allowed. But to my knowledge you are wrong on this. There is no law to say how many people can gather and no law to say you have to keep 2 metres apart.

These are all recommendations for our own good and while infringements to Liberty we hope people will willingly accept them given the pandemic.

I mention this because people complaining about this that and the other seem confused on the various threads. Lord Sumption has been explaining this well on the news programmes and it is why most of the police arrests weve been hearing about cannot be prosecuted as no law or laws have been broken.

I've noticed large groups of men drinking and socialising outside a Nigerian sounding restaurant by Lidl in Peckham, opposite Burger King. This has been going on for weeks every time the sun is out. When they hear a Police car approach they all cunningly move 2 meters away from each other.

Then people wonder why the Queens Road Peckham area has the most deaths in the borough- 15 as of 2 weeks ago, now probably higher.

The advice is quite clear- there is a hard core of people who ignore it. I've just seen 10 teenagers playing footie in Alleyn's Field 8 BAME and 2 white kids...no social distancing and close tackling.
Also a woman with 2 kids turned up there and the kids - 7 and 5 ish run straight up to some other children there- so all the nonsense about not sending kids to school is a joke...anyway plenty of kids are at school as their parents are key workers who would be the most likely to pass infection on...

I know there's confusion especially as the police seem to have wrongly charged - but I guess that's a technicality.

"5. Public gatherings
To ensure people are social distancing, the government has prohibited by law all public gatherings of more than two people, except for reasons set out in the regulations. These include:"

[www.gov.uk] and [www.legislation.gov.uk]

Mind these superseded the ones below on 1 may - so maybe police do now have law and didn't below (a total guess that when Pritti Patel relaxed the regulations she tightened up the loopholes LOL)

[www.gov.uk]

Edit: I note how this phrase was added to every paragraph later "Commencement Information I1 Reg. 1 in force at made date at 1.00 p.m., see reg. 1(1)" - only a lawyer could understand what that means ?

Do we need to know the BAME/white ratios when discussing teenagers playing football in the park?

Yes we do need to know the ratio of BAME to white. Southwark has one of the highest death rates of COVID19, and Peckham being the highest. It's useless having an expensive enquiry into why BAME have a higher rate of death unless we understand why. Please take a walk along Peckham high street/rye lane. I can't imagine you've done that. If not, before you comment, go and have a look at the facts.

what facts are you talking about? what is it that you want people to see in Peckham?

Posted by KidKruger May 20, 04:06PM

pk - I think lindlylou is referencing the collective lack of self-distancing evident around Rye Lane/High St.
It's certainly the case, I shop there every few days and it's noticeable (if you're trying to take precautions for yourself).
To be fair though, I wouldn't say Lordship Lane is the shining example of how to distance either, people acting clueless there too !

so both ED and Peckham are bad

but the BAME people are the worst? is that the 'fact' that she's getting at?

Thank you KidKruger. My post was in no way racist but why do certain members of society think this disease won't affect then? And yes, I am concerned that the incidence is higher in the BAME society. That said, if I were a BAME, I sure as hell would be looking after myself and my family.

So by this logic whenever talking about groups of people congregating or breaking social distancing rules we should not only outline the number of people but also highlight the specific racial breakdown of said group? E.g. Bbq at xx location spotted, around twenty individuals, 75% BAME. Should we also try to ascertain whether the white proportion are from the likes of Italy, Spain or the the US too, or do I need to walk down Rome high-street as well?

For goodness sake. Open your eyes. As I've said before. Take a walk, or a huffing puffing jog to Rye Lane/Peckham high street then, and only then, can you post an opinion. When we're you there? What time? What did you.notice. Answer: I havent been there. Why would I. I'm fine thanks. Why would I ever walk around there? Sums most of you up. Peckham is wonderful, but I wouldn't go there, God forbi. Edited to day the only reason I went there was to go to NatWest Bank. No social distancing in the queue. I stood in the road and asked someone to save my place. The social distancing was less than one metre.

lindylou - it's easy (and lazy) for people to call grave insults on people over the internet as I'm sure you know (seeing as you're experiencing it !).
I'm also concerned that some groups of the population are experiencing higher than average infection (not sure about deaths, but assume it's same proportion for all group ?). Reasons are surely attitude, awareness, social pressure and cultural.

Thank you kid. It's my point exactly. I'm not being racist, merely pointing out that some cultures are exactly that. But in the present climate it's not helping themselves or others they come into contact with.

Some communities are more disadvantaged. That means poorer living conditions, less space etc. Also people with less money are more likely to have to go to work, travel on public transport plus do jobs that are more "frontline".

The disadvantages that the BAME community face remain widespread........I would have thought this hardly needs to be stated.

I personally haven't observed any substantial difference in social distancing between the two high streets of Peckham or East Dulwich recently. Both are busy.

Yes, both areas have become busy, I totally agree. But some areas have become busy with no social distancing.

Whose she, the cat's mother? And I think it's more of a class thing lately. Send the kids from the government school back, shield the others. All kids from working class families have no hope. Be that black, white or yellow.
