As the current death-rate from Covid 19 exceeds that of the entire EU the government and Tory press hide behind silly excuses such as we can’t compare countries because they measure deaths in different ways.
The statistics on excess deaths show there have been over 62,000 extra deaths. Regardless of how you measure – that is an enormous amount. One has to start asking why we have performed so much worse than everybody else. Could it possibly be government incompetence???
The other thing we need to ask is why our ethnic minorities have been hit hardest. Is it social, economic or biology? Or is it a combination of them all?
I hope there is going to be a full and thorough investigation and report when this is all over! People need to be accountable for the mistakes they have made!! I think laziness and ineptitude shouldn’t be rewarded!!
Well today has been a strange day. I’ve been suffering with back spasms. I sneezed when reaching down to put plates in a low cupboard and pulled some muscle or ligament. It was agony. I couldn’t move. It passed off but keeps coming back two or three times a day when I sit down or reach down. Agony. So I’ve booked a virtual physio! I’m not quite sure what good can be done over the phone but we’ll see!!
Today I’ve been playing Jerry Lee Lewis, writing poems and going for a long walk up my hill and down the other side!! Then I came back and sorted photos!! It’s been a gloomy day!
Another day down!!
