    She finds them "invasive and uncomfortable". Wait until she finds herself on a ventilator and then she can tell us about "invasive and uncomfortable"

    Mask hysteria is not good.............either pro wearing or anti wearing.
    I shall use my common sense.

    Ventilators are last resort now. Few people with Covid need them.

    I suppose her reasons are at least slightly more sane than those of some residents in Florida.

    'They want to throw God's wonderful breathing system out'

    Before holding a vote to mandate the wearing of masks in public places to stop the spread of coronavirus, Palm Beach County commissioners were harangued by residents who accused them of obeying the devil, imposing a communist dictatorship and dishonouring the American flag.

    I am with Tom Hanks. More famous and more sensible.

    You just can't argue with this level of stupid.

    Her stupid gives her superhuman defences against logic and reason.

    Avoid arguments with these people at all costs. You will lose.

    Is she famous? I've never heard of her. I read the link but I'm none the wiser. Who is she and why does the media think her opinion is of any interest?

    Other people using their common sense is part of the problem, this is what happened when the people of Arizona used their common sense recently instead of listening to the experts.

    You may have already seen this mad Texan. If not, worth a look (at 3mins 16).

    How deep must the stupid be to politicize something that can help stop a pandemic? There have even been demonstrations about not wearing masks where people come together in a crowd to all agree they aren't going to wear a mask.

    There seems to be an awful lot of inventing fantasy scenarios and the getting angry about them at the moment, there's lots of it on the taking a knee thread on here. The biggest problem these people have is their own fear and anger which seems to stem from not being to accept that not everyone is like them or thinks exactly the same.

    I don't actually know who Carol McGiffin is.

    Should I?

    Unless you watch ITV lunchtime drivel "Loose Women" you wouldn't. It seems ironic that this woman would say any of that because, for the peace of mind of small children and animals, she should have been wearing one for years!

    No coincidence that she's called Oralia

    Sounds like a Scold's Bridle would be more appropriate.

    So, it appears there are more people on this thread saying, ‘Who?’ than engaging with her stupidity.

    I’m joining the not-engaging-with-stupidity - ‘Who?’ cohort too.

    She would be devastated at her lack of public recognition. 'Loose Women' Is one of her platforms, I am told. I've never watched it.

    It's localised. Loads of people know who she is, especially if they were around in 1991.
