A famous American network reporter who has famous brother as high ranking official in the state of NY constantly preaches about wearing a mask on his show. He caught the virus and while he had the virus was discovered outside in his neighborhood and when confronted got belligerent to the people who said something. This same guy has also been told by his apartent management that he has been caught several times not following the mask policy of the apartment and if caught again will be fined. So while Paul may have been wrong, I will take his infraction of an order over the American guy I mentioned.
That is very frustrating when high profile people apply double standards,especially when it relates to something so serious as the pandemic. The irony of all this is that Paul could have actually recorded the album at home,just like he did with the McCartney album. Paul has already mentioned that he has been using the same recording equipment from 1970 on the new album so he could easily have set up a temporary studio and simply stayed at home like he was supposed to do. Originally that's what I thought he had done when early reports suggested he'd recorded in his home studio.
Trust me Kestrel, there is much worse here in the US. The Governor of the largest state (California) has order that even in our own home for Thanksgiving we can't have more than 10 people and people from different families. Meanwhile, the Governor was photographed at very expensive French restaurant with 12 people and nobody was social distant and wearing a mask. When news came out about the story, the Governor said they ate outside and then the pictures came out and showed he lied and they were eating inside. We have a US Senator from that same state being caught walking thru private airport without a mask while hopping on private jet. The same Senator who preaches about the pandemic and climate change shows what a hypocrite she is.
IMO I don't think anybody really cares that he did not follow this order. He was on his own property, the two individuals had the freedom to say no and people believe he is the type to take safety precautions. I am willing to bet that if the police saw him and actually had the "nerve" to tell him to head back to his house, he would have politely turned around and went home.
