The man who goes the length and breadth of the country doing all the lines, tape and stickers telling us to keep 2 metres apart is absolutely furious.
Peter Thape, who is the nation’s official distance man, found out yesterday that the new social distance will be 1 metre, only weeks after sticking down all the new gear.
Thape is rightly concerned about getting all the notices and tape off floors and carpets, fearing that a sticky residue could easily be left.
‘I’ll have to use a soapy solution; it’ll take ages,’ said Thape.
‘Just bought a really nice 2m stick as well; done me money there,’ he added.
