It will encourage more idiots into Wales ! Just read that yesterday, a few miles from us,  police stopped some people travelling from to Ireland from Hampshire.
Don`t they realise how it`s (cv 19)spread.

Whilst this matter is  devolved, I just wish that Drakeford, Sturgeon, Johnson and Foster would get together, discuss the matter of relaxing the rules, thrash out any problems, banging their heads together if necessary, come up with a plan upon which they all agree and appear together to make the announcement.
It's no good trying to make political statements and the devolved nations leaders attempting to appear to be standing up to Westminster. People's lives are at stake and that is not a matter for political point scoring. The U.K. needs to be just that - United.
The alterations are, really, neither here nor there. Exercise more than once a day, provided it is local. Who was counting in the first place?. Certainly not the police, because I haven't seen a real Police Officer or PCSO around here since Adam was a lad.
The relaxation of the rules in Wales applies to people resident in Wales only so there is no reason/excuse for people to flood across the border.
I'm not a garden centre person so that doesn't really matter to me, but I recognise it does to others.
I'm waiting to go fishing again, I don't half miss it.

The British government has been a shambles on this from the very start, check the Cheltenham Festival & the latest scandal with Prof Ferguson, they were too busy pointing out the faults of Johnnie Foreigner & where did that get them? Britain was worse! The latest shambles is the English tabloids front pages on lifting the lock-down. This is not a United Kingdom as the Brexit fiasco demonstrated.

I think that Johnson's announcement Sunday will be very similar and anyone who has believed the tabloids is going to be disappointed. Looking at the headlines in those papers they made it sound as if he was going to lift the restrictions completely. Very irresponsible.

I saw somewhere that Carmarthenshire had no new cases yesterday, not sure how true that is! But there will  be more if people continue to act irresponsibly

 "All" of the UK should be following the same rules regarding people`s health. As Skoosh said shambles from start to finish, what a fiasco ! I wonder how many who were present at Cheltenham fell ill, plus I can`t really understand why travellers returning from Italy back in March weren`t quarantined immediately, 2 weeks in isolation is nothing compared to the lives that have been lost.

And the government was accused of giving mixed messages! They hadn't said anything at that point, apart from there would be an announcement on Sunday. The "mixed messages" were all coming from the different newspapers. 

We certainly should have quarantined people coming into UK from the virus hotspots even as early as late February. Many countries did. Instead they were advised to self-isolate. And we know how many people take any notice of government "advice". You only have to look at figures on numbers of fines for lockdown breaches - and they're only the ones caught.
Even using the words "advice" and "guidelines" makes some people think it's optional.

#2  -  The leaders of the three devolved Governments and the Westminster Government have been consulting on a way out of lockdown. All have been involved in Cobra meetings.

I think the biggest problem is that Scotland is approximately 2 weeks behind the other Nations of the United Kingdom with this virus. Rightly so Nicola Sturgeon is doing what she thinks is in the best interests of Scotland and will not be pressurised by anyone into making decisions that will be detrimental to the Scottish Nation.

Obviously, we need all four Governments which make up the UK to do the same thing at the same time but that means waiting until each one reaches the same level of infections, deaths etc.
