Very warm and cloudy today in Yorkshire! A nice breeze!
I stayed in this morning editing the Roy Harper book and then took a late morning walk up my hill. I think the world is being taken over by crows and pigeons – in fact anything that thrives off humans! But it was nice to see warblers, siskins and tits in the hedgerows.
It leaves me fuming when I walk up the hill with all these mowed verges though! There is so little natural habitat left for wild animals. The sanitised fields are deadly with poisonous chemicals. All they have are the hedgerows and verges – and they can’t leave them alone! Where are the insects going to live? Without them there are no swallows, swifts, shrews and hedgehogs. Without the seeds there are no mice and voles. Without the mice and voles there are no owls, kestrels and kites!! It’s all very sad!
Back home I watched England notch up a win. Only 1-0 but they looked good. I think they’ve got another gear or two! Should go some way into the competition!
After the football I painted a couple of doors!! Shortly I’ll go back to the editing!!
Meanwhile out in Coronaland our bumpkin clown of a disheveled leader looks like a complete blundering fool at the G7. He’s an embarrassment. What must the world think?? From Disraeli to Johnson! We’ve slipped a long way down – and are descending at a faster and faster rate under this moron. As firms zoom off abroad to trade with the EU without tariffs or red-tape we’re left with low-paid rubbish jobs. The labour force from the EU, who did all the low-paid vegetable picking, care homes and restaurant-work are no longer coming. Instead we are bringing in people from Africa and India as the erks who voted Brexit refuse to take such low-paid work – they’d rather be on the dole.
So far Brexit has messed up fishermen, farmers, the poor, Wetherspoons and musicians (who can no longer travel to Europe). That’s most of the people who voted for it! It’s OK people like like Rees-Mogg made millions!!
Meanwhile the level of racism and division is ramped up and we make trade deals that are worse than the ones we had before! Well done Johnson!! You made a small number of Tory big-wigs very rich and a huge number of poor people a great deal poorer!!
We’re back into austerity and cuts for public servants and the poor (not bankers and the wealthy though). It’s all hidden up in the huge damage covid has done to the economy and disguised by massive borrowing!!
The clown’s disastrous border policy – described by the Mirror as reckless – described by me as bonkers and insane – which allowed hundreds of thousands into the country from India, and has ended up putting us in serious trouble, – is directly responsible for this wave of new cases and deaths.
If it was one of my loved ones dying I’d want to drag the incompetent fool through the courts and have him locked up for murder!!
The Indian variant (that they want to rename so that they can sneak away from their incredible blunder and not take responsibility – as usual) is doubling every nine days. In a months time there could be 100,000 cases a day!! The NHS could be overrun. Opening up could be a disaster and create a fourth wave that would be worse that before one SAGE adviser has said. Cornwall levels have just gone up 900% because of the G7 and people going into the area.
We have cases now running at over 8000 a day, hospital admissions up 15% and a rising death-rate. It’s hard to get other data because they do not want us to know. The fear is that a lot of young people will get it. They might require hospital treatment but are unlikely to die. A lot of them might well develop long covid and find that their hearts, lungs, brain, liver and kidneys are damaged for life!!
THANK YOU BORIS JOHNSON FOR DELIBERATELY ALLOWING THE VIRUS MUTATION INTO THE COUNTRY!! YOU TWERP!!
I noticed on the BBC interview that he avoided answering any questions on his ludicrous border policy! HE didn’t even get a trade deal with India – just messed up thousands of us!!
So, it remains to be seen whether they’ll put off opening up the country (probably delay it for a month or two) and put thousands of people out of work! All because of Johnson’s stupidity!
I bet you’re glad you voted for the clown!!
Stay safe!! I’m off to edit!!
