Back at the beginning, a death toll of 126 seemed a lot. Sadly, it doesn’t now. 352 new cases yesterday (plus however many untested). I have no faith in any of the figures they are pumping out! They are all massaged.
I think Johnson’s handlers must be pulling their hair out. He is a liability. He’s a real contortionist – every time he opens his mouth he puts his foot in it! Or is this part of the government ploy to deflect criticism on to others? If I remember rightly – the ring of protection they threw around Care Homes was:
- No advice – apart from you’ll be alright
- No PPE (you don’t need it)
- And shoving a whole lot of elderly people with Covid 19 out of the hospitals into Care Homes to infect the inmates and kill thousands.
Now Johnson is trying to say that the thousands of deaths are nothing to do with them but was the incompetence of the Care Homes – incredible. No wonder those people are so angry.
So Jair Bolsonaro has Covid 19 – the little flu – well I hope he discovers it is more than the sniffles. If he were to die it would be poetic justice and good riddance. He is responsible for many deaths.
In the USA Trump is suffering a slump! Due to his appalling handling of both the virus and the BLM people are waking up to his incompetence. About time. The news is that he paid someone to take his exams for him because he knew he wouldn’t pass. I would believe that. His response to the slump in popularity is to move on to the attack and start using the race card. The protestors are now fascists attacking the wonderful heritage of the nation – that wonderful heritage is the slave owners, exploiters and profiteers, the racists, warmongers and callous elite. That’s OK with Trump – he’ll fire up his base. They love those confederate flags and good old days of the Ku Klux Klan.
Today I went for a walk up my hill. It was overcast but great. A kestrel hovered over our heads. All was right with the world.
I came back, played some Traffic , cleared up after decoration, and tried to watch a bit of cricket (rain stopped play)
Here’s to more cricket tomorrow and a fairer, more equal world, rid of populists!!
