Surprise, surprise – scientists are warning that our ‘world-beating’ track and trace system is inadequate and would have to improve greatly in order to get kids back to school safely!
Sounds par for the course – like the ‘oven-ready’ Brexit and ‘shovel-ready’ building projects. Johnson’s a man who is good on slogans but piss-poor when it comes to putting them into action. We’ve had more than enough of these ‘world-beating’ projects – like our wonderful tracing app, our PPE, our Care-Home protection, our lockdowns and face-masks. I can’t believe a word the man says. He’s all mouth and no trousers.
Local authorities, in frustration at the government failure, are now setting up their own track and trace. It is what the government should have done in the first place. If they had used the GPs and local hospitals they would have been on top of it.
They are now beginning to panic as the numbers of new cases goes up. They think they have opened up too quickly. There are plans to shut pubs and restaurants again. Is it really a juggling act between pubs and schools? Shouldn’t they have restricted it to outside eating and drinking in the first place – at least through summer?
There seems to be some mad inconsistencies – you can drink in a pub but not have a wedding?
Talk about all over the place.
Today is a bit dour and drizzly (like the news) so we’re going for a walk this afternoon in the hopes that the weather picks up. This morning I’ve been working on my editing. I’m enjoying it – a strange semi-biographical book. I’m not sure what you’d call it – it’s not a novel, a memoir or a biography. But who cares. I’m enjoying writing it. What do you think to the extracts I’ve put out?
It has been great playing that old Rockabilly – Billy Lee Riley was great – should have been a lot bigger!
So, with 743 new cases – stay safe! And Rock on!!
