I wonder if Cummings is having a laugh? Getting Johnson to come out with the most stupid things? Our current testing system (with a capacity to test a mere 10,000 a day) is failing.
Instead of being ashamed Cummings is proposing to up the testing to ‘millions a day’! Wow!! And the results to be given in minutes!! How astonishing!! And the cost is a mere £110 billion!! Amazing what we can find when we want to!!
He is having a joke isn’t he?
The catch is (as the name gave it away) that you are not required to travel to Inverness (as with current testing) but you have to pop off to the moon which might restrict numbers a little. But what a jolly wheeze!!
For once LUNACY is the most appropriate word. If Billy Bunter pulls this one off, (with his track record) it will be nothing short of miraculous.
Meanwhile, Mark Walport from the SAGE group is also having a joke. He is saying that the government is losing control of the virus!! Ho Ho Ho!! As if these clowns were ever in control.
We have findings, contrary to government assurances, that kids transmit the virus as much as adults. There was a £10,000 fine given to a 19-year-old for holding a party for 50 people. There are raves, full pubs and big gatherings. The government allows horse racing with crowds. Inconsistent? No – there is a consistency – complete consistency on ineptitude!!
They are betting on a vaccine – putting in orders for tens of millions of doses from anyone who offers one. I’m converting my bedroom into a lab. I’ll write to them tomorrow. I’m sure they’ll send a few billion my way!
The good news is that the Oxford vaccine trial is back on. Fingers crossed! Roll on January.
So today I walked up my hill in beautiful autumn sunshine. Read a friends book and kicked back as the last of this extraordinary year trickles through my fingers.
I’m going to pour a glass or two of red!!
Stay safe everyone and get your rockets primed!! Ho Ho!!
