Readers back ‘brilliant’ Don’t act like a Dick Lincolnshire coronavirus campaign

Lincolnshire Live readers have backed a new campaign launched to warn people about the dangers of coronavirus.

The ‘Don’t act like a Dick’ campaign was set up by Lincolnshire Resilience Forum (LRF) to promote their Coronavirus message in a ‘fun and engaging way’.

Some followers on LRF’s Facebook page had reacted negatively to the campaign however the response from Lincolnshire Live ‘s followers has been almost totally positive.

Commenting on our Facebook page, Dawn Pears asked: “Why would anyone not like this?”

Meanwhile another user posted: “I think it is brilliant! Definitely a great way of getting the point across.”

Phil Carney commented: “Nice to see humour rather than trying to scare the bejeesus out of people for a change.”

Someone else said: “I think it is brilliant. The ones that are offended are the ones that don’t believe in Covid-19.”

What do you think to the campaign? Have your say in the comments.

Speaking about the ‘Don’t act like a Dick’ campaign, a spokesperson for LRF said: “The response to our campaign has been overwhelmingly positive and we would like to thank all those who shared our message, including county councils and district councils up and down the country as well as other resilience forums.

“The purpose of the campaign is to make people aware of a recent study which shows that a small number of people who are ignoring advice are responsible for a large proportion of transmission risk.

“We urge that small cohort of people to stop and think.”
