What's your definition of a "social meeting" then? Is having a coffee more of an indication of social than exercise?

I hate to break this to you, but vast swathes of our laws are subjective and open to interpretation. They often use terms like "proportionate", "reasonable" or require proof of intent. 

Yes, but for the crimes to which you refer, the police are not normally jury and judge.

Walking is exercise, whether you’re drinking coffee and talking or not.

I hate to be the one defending the police, but could it be that there isn't a great deal of other crimes going on during a national lockdown, so they have plenty of resources to throw at enforcing the guidelines?

Where does it say in the guidelines that drinking and eating in a public place is not allowed. When did a coffee become a picnic. Its complete nonsense...

Have you got a link to “the offence of a social meeting”?

Meeting other people

It is against the law to meet socially with family or friends unless they are part of your household or support bubble. You cannot leave home for recreational or leisure purposes (such as for a picnic or a social meeting).

Out of the last 100 times I have exercised, I cannot recall once doing so while simultaneously consuming a coffee. On the other hand, the vast majority of social meetings I attend I am at very least offered a beverage.

Maybe next time you exercise you'd like to film yourself doing so while consuming a hot chocolate and panini, you could become the biggest viral sensation since those kids on Jim'll Fix It.

With an estimated 280,000 people homeless in the UK (Shelter figures) are they allowed to lay on the bench.

That's exercising. They weren't exercising, they were having a social meeting.

Trainers, sweatbands, Lycra, stretching...

What constitutes a social meeting? Fashionwear, Starbucks, selfies...

Exactly how pathetic is that:rolleyes:, absolutely no exercise whatsoever after you've walked from your car, at least a game of golf or tennis IS exercise
