We are getting near to the end of August, the end of summer, and into the Autumn. There are worrying times ahead. With the approach of winter, they are expecting a second wave of Covid-19 along with the seasonal flu epidemic. With schools back, the diseases will spread. That’ll spell trouble for medical services!
But I’m making the most of the last days of summer. I was up bright and early climbing up my hill and completing my 10K. It felt good. The sun shone on me. I even came back and painted a few windows!
This afternoon I’ve been inside. It’s been pouring with rain and I’ve been doing some editing and playing the Grateful Dead. Can’t be bad.
I had a real laugh watching Johnson in school. He’s such a twerp of a nincompoop. I can’t imagine what the rest of the world makes of him (or us for electing him).
The government is still in a flat panic. Nothing is working. The oven-ready Brexit talks have stalled and we’re looking at a no-deal – with all the job losses, bureaucracy and red tape that entails (the Tories want to do away with workers’ rights and environmental standards and the EU doesn’t want their markets undercut). The scientists are predicting a second wave of Covid, there is going to be a round of seasonal flu (which will confuse the issue), schools are going back – even if we don’t know quite how, our world-beating Track and Trace is still misfiring (more targets missed), the quack theories on 5G are still circulating, the empty offices have knock-on effects on rents, transport and support services (shops, pubs and sandwiches), the economy is still in a mess and this useless bunch of right-wing extremists aren’t up to the job!
Not to worry – Dominic has the answer. He wants the biggest racist, misogynistic, climate change denier and environmental scourge on the planet. As he couldn’t get Trump he is going for the Aussie jerk Tony Abbott. He’ll fix everything and set up all manner of deals. (Before you know it we’ll be a Third World country).
On a high note, houses are selling like hotcakes. Perhaps everybody is selling up and moving abroad before everything collapses around them?
As we look to January with warnings of food shortages, mass job losses, second waves, epidemics, NHS collapse, and Tony Abbott joining forces with Dominic Cummings, I’m feeling good. Part of me is thinking that the silly plonkers have brought it all on themselves. I know that is not a nice thing to think – but it’s true. I despair of people!
Speaking of which – the rioting is going nicely in the States as another black man is moronically shot seven times in the back at close range for daring to get into his car. Trump, far from sympathising with innocent black men being shot and murdered by police, is threatening to bring more violence down on them. It’s not surprising that he is languishing in the polls.
I watched the Tribe of Trump stirring up hatred and fear at their convention, their only weapons, firing up their base and looking to steal the election through the electoral college. It stinks. I think we could have a civil war if this goes on much longer. America is collapsing in on itself due to incompetence, extremism and madness. The Republican Party has been taken over by the clan of Trump.
Today in the UK we had another 1048 new cases of Covid and 16 deaths – still going up slightly.
In the USA it was up to 42355 with another 1260 deaths. I hope some of those people who still think it’s a hoax and refuse to wear masks or social distance are beginning to get worried. Until it’s under control things cannot get back to normal and they are stopping it getting back to normal.
In Brazil we have a similar fool in charge. The ‘little flu’ has killed another 1085 with 47,162 new cases.
I told you that I despair of people – they are still supporting these incompetent fools.
Anyway – say hello to Tony Abbott if you see him – adios and adieu – fare the well! We’re all doomed!
