As it has rained all day I’m putting off my walk until later! Instead I’ve been working on my book and playing some Pink Floyd. It’s kept me busy.
I’ve just finished reading Iain McEwan’s Machines Like Us. A great book. It certainly makes you think.
Out in Coronaland we have reached a critical stage as the government dithers and the tiers don’t work. Some real decisions and leadership are required. We’re not getting it though.
I’m reminded of Kangaroo Blues by Roy Harper – Confusion rains down on us all.
It seems to me that a modified lockdown is in order – work from home where possible, avoid public transport, only essential travel, no pubs, restaurants or entertainment, shield the vulnerable, keep schools, work and unis open though. Fully compensate the catering, hospitality, musicians, actresses and actors and all ancillaries etc.
Where’s the leadership???
Our rate of infection is now out of control – 24,700 new cases and 310 deaths.
In the States, it is looking dire. The one good thing is that the evil, divisive, Neo-Nazi promoting monstrosity is on the way out. His incompetence kills.
The USA now has another 81,181 new cases with 1016 deaths. Gross mismanagement and ignorance!!
Brazil is still going at 28,629 new cases with another 510 deaths.
The three populist fools are excelling themselves.
Oh – and Vietnam – 1 new case and no deaths. Do you think that is by chance??
