After Neil Gayman confessed that he had come from New Zealand, isolated, to his home in Skye, the police confirmed that he had spoken to the writer.
Gayman undertook an 11,000-mile journey, breaking the laws of the Scottish blockade to isolate himself easily after the American author of Gods and Good Omens and his wife Amanda Palmer agreed to give themselves some space.
The 59-year-old – who shares his 4-year-old son Ash with Palmer – is now stranded on his Scottish property, which he owned for 10 years after wearing a mask and gloves from Auckland Airport to Los Angeles (LAX), then to London, before taking his friend’s car and going north to Sky.
According to the country’s isolation regulations, only one-way travel was allowed and a statement from the Scottish police confirmed that Heyman had received the correct information.
said Inspector Linda Allan in a statement received by the HA: The cops visited Neil Gaman and talked to him about his actions.
He was advised on the necessary visits and reminded of the guidelines in force in Scotland.
He said he and his wife Amanda Palmer needed some space.
Gayman said he was in New Zealand with his wife and son Ash until two weeks ago, when the country went from level four of the blockade – where he had been for five weeks – to level three.
Gayman recently explained the reasons for this decision in his blog: I needed to be in a place where I could talk to people in the UK while we weren’t sleeping with them, not just before breakfast and after dinner. And I had to be in a place where I could easily isolate myself.
Today it is difficult for almost everyone – some people are cramped and regret not being cramped, others are alone and thirsty for communication, almost everyone suffers in one way or another. You’d be so nice.
In response to the online criticism of his approach, Gayman responded: I am currently a British taxpayer and a registered voter in Scotland. I went home.
Heyman also denied that he and singer Palmer would divorce after the singer shared a long post on his blog about her situation: Amanda and I were in a difficult situation just before we left (it’s my fault, I’m afraid I hurt her a lot, and … …and it’s really nobody’s business.)

We agreed that we had to give ourselves some space, which was very little the case in New Zealand under the blockade. So it was a sad way to escape, even without peace in the castle, and a sad way to drive.
As soon as the world opens up and the journey becomes easier, Amanda, Ash and I are looking forward to meeting you at Woodstock. (Yeah, I’ve seen the headlines that say I’ve moved to Britain, and even that we’re getting a divorce. No, I didn’t move to the UK, and yes, Amanda and I are still very close, even though half the world is between us).
