It was a bit colder today with a northerly breeze. There were some sunny spells though. In a week’s time we will officially be in British Summertime as our clocks spring forward! What a stupid thing to do! It always takes me a week to adjust.
I walked up my hill. The carcass of the barn owl had disappeared. All that was left was a pile of feathers. Such is life.
Back home I’ve been playing some Eels and writing. It’s been quite productive. I’m about a third of the way through the first draft of The Pornography Wars – my new Sci-fi masterpiece. It’s fun.
Out in Coronaland, the vaccination is proceeding though some areas have a lot better uptake than others. Tragically it is the poorer areas with a lot of black and Asians that appear to have the worst take up. They are the ones most at risk from the virus. Common sense would tell you that they are the ones who need it most. Sadly they have been fed misinformation and conspiracy. Many of them think the vaccine going to affect Asian and black people adversely. Fertility seems to have become a major stumbling block. For some stupid reason they think that vaccination is going to make them infertile. A lot of them are going to die! The people spreading these lies need locking up!
The EU have a lot to answer for too. Their stupid Brexit-driven opposition to the AstraZeneca jab has fuelled the dissenters. Another way Brexit has created a negative result.
What with Johnson the Clown and his bunch of extreme imbeciles, a belligerent EU and a nonexistent opposition there isn’t much hope for the future. I just hope that Starmer gets his act together soon! Or gets kicked out and replaced by someone who can rip th Tories to shreds for the mistakes they are making and corruption they are exhibiting. I despair.
It’s the same in the States. Biden is doing a lot of good stuff undoing the damage Trump did in his four years of mayhem. But they are getting at him over his frailty. Who cares? It’s what he does that’s important and if his health fails Harris will step into the breach. All’s good.
Biden and Harris still represent the same elite but at least a lot of the peripherals are being dealt with and they aren’t spreading lies, misinformation, conspiracy and empowering tyrants and fascists! I’ll settle for that in the short term.
In the UK the scientists are talking about us wearing masks and social distancing for another three years! They say that until the whole world has been adequately vaccinated there will be a threat. I suppose their main concern is holiday makers and foriegners coming into the country could bring in lethal strains. I can’t see that somehow. . It’s a risk I suppose but their should obviously be checks at the border and follow up along with a track and trace that works. That should be adequate.
Oooops – I forgot – we have the clown in charge. There are no adequate border checks and the track and trace is a farce.
Hmmmm – we might be in lockdown for some considerable time!!
Stay safe. The nighs are ending!!
