Ha Ha Ha Ha – excuse me while I laugh. Operation Moonshot – mass testing of the whole country. Ha Ha Ha Ha. They can’t even deliver the limited testing we’ve got now! How many times have we been hived off with these grandiose, exaggerated soundbites??? We’ve had world-beating apps, world-beating PPS, world-beating Track and Trace, imaginary protective rings, world-beating vaccines (now stalled), oven-ready Brexit, Deals that are the best deals ever (now considered so bad we have to renege on our word and flout international law).
I’m sick of arrogant soundbites! I’m sick of the arrogance, incompetence and stupidity. They are treating us like fools.
Now we have mass testing Operation Moonshot – more likely a £1 rocket left over from the last Guy Fawkes day, likely to go off like a damp squib.
Today I feel ashamed, tainted by these Bullingdon boys total disregard for the law or the electorate. With a majority of 80, no election for another three years and still enjoying a lead in polls, they think they can do anything – and they are. They don’t really care. They know they can make a complete pig’s ear of the whole thing and then waltz off into a life of luxury as they are offered huge sums of money for doing next to nothing – just like Cameron, Osborne and May. It’s the rest of us who will pick up the bill!
Our covid cases are shooting up – another 2699 yesterday, and the deaths are starting to rise too – 10 yesterday. As there is a two to three-week gap between rises in cases and deaths, we can expect that increase to come through further down the line.
Meanwhile, in Trumpville, the virus is on the rise again – another 29,946 new cases yesterday and another 1176 new cases. Trump is wriggling. He now claims he deliberately downplayed the virus so as not to panic people. I imagine that over 190,000 deaths is pretty scary. Maybe if he had reinforced the safety procedures – distancing, handwashing and masks – instead of calling it a hoax a good number of those 190,000 might still be alive! The bleach doesn’t seem to be working on this ‘hoax’. Or is it a ‘Deep State’ plot????
The same thing is happening in Brazil where Bolsonaro is overseeing another drastic burning of rainforests while the rate goes up to 35,816 new cases and 1075 deaths.
All these clowns care about is wealth and power!!
I walk to forget. I did a 16.5K walk today on the beautiful Yorkshire Wolds. Up roman roads, past 2nd World War airfields, neolithic earthworks and the beautiful ‘slacks’ (valleys). I’ll put some photos up soon. The sun shone for half the time and there was a delightful old abandoned church.
Back home I’ve been playing a bit of Charlie Poole.
Stay Safe everyone!
