I went off to my writing group this morning. It was quite warm out. I left the hat and scarf in the hall. By the time I got out at lunch-time it was hot. The sun was out. We’re talking T-shirt weather again!!
I was told that Hull was the warmest place in the country. Sure felt like it.
I went for a walk this afternoon and listened to some Fairport Convention. I do love Sandy Denny’s voice.
Meanwhile, out in Coronaland, Johnson is arrogantly ignoring the crises gripping the country and putting on an bouyant air of great optimism. Well well not? The fools were still supporting him despite all the blathering, blunders and corruption. Why wouldn’t he be cock-a-hoop? He obviously thinks they are going to continue to support him even while they starve to death!
He’s still coming out with the same old bollocks. It seems that all the problems we have are simply global issues or minor blips in the Brexit process. He’s moving us to a high-wage economy where we don’t depend on cheap foreign labour.
Hey up. He says that’s what we voted for. Well I bloody didn’t for a start. And I doubt too many people voted for a pay cut, higher taxes, higher national insurance, higher prices and cuts in benefits and wages.
Wasn’t Brexit meant to produce lower prices, put money into the NHS, and make us better off??
I can’t see how pay freezes for millions of public servants, benefit cuts and job losses is interpreted as a high wage economy. That’s utter bollocks.
What is really happening is that the delays and tariffs are going to result in much higher prices and shortages.
He is doing his usual – talking bollocks, bigging things up and coming out with blathering nonsense.
So cutting a scheme paying a bonus of £5000 to teachers willing to teach in deprived areas and replacing it with a scheme to offer £3000 is seen as ‘Levelling Up’. Bollocks. That is cutting the bonus by £2000. Does he think we’re all stupid?
Yes he does.
What does he base that on? He bases it on the fact that we voted for Brexit, we voted for him and we continue to support him and his corrupt, sleazy colleagues. It doesn’t matter how much they are taking us for a ride. We don’t care. Ergo we are stupid.
You can’t argue with his logic. He may be bumbling, inept and useless but if he ruffles up his hair and talks positively he knows that morons love him.
So yesterday there were 40,701 new cases – rising substantially. The last time we saw that number was a year ago. There were another 143 deaths.
But that’s OK folk. The government don’t mind, if you don’t.
For political reasons, to boost Johnson’s popularity, he wants us to think the pandemic is over, all is well and we’re back to normal. We can go and travel. The red list countries have gone down from 46 to just 7. Isn’t he great? Johnson beat Covid-19 with his wonderful immunisation program.
Except he didn’t – that was the NHS. He was responsible for giving £billions to his chums, wasting £billions of things that didn’t work – apps, T&T, moonshots and guff, locking down too late, opening up too early and all those silly schemes. Complacency and panic. That’s why we’re eighth worse in the world and even the third world countries with their squalor and poverty performed far better than us!!
But he’ll ruffle his hair and tell how great he is – a Churchillian figure, no less!!
Kids in schools are going back to wearing masks, we have another 143 deaths, army is delivering petrol, we’ll get used to not being able to get many things, and we asked for pay cuts and price rises. All good!!
I had to laugh reading the reports on invermectin, the wonder drug being pushed by nutty antivaxxers. It seems that these fools are completely OK with believing what they read on the web. Who believes scientists or experts anymore, right? We won’t take a scientifically proven vaccine but we will dose ourselves with a rather nasty horse wormer. After all, an anti-parasitic worm drug for horses is bound to be safe for humans.
The fact that the scientific investigation into invermectin was flawed with proven fraud and errors is irrelevant. They know the horse wormer works because it says so on the web!!
It’s no wonder the USA has the worst record for covid deaths in the whole world. The Trumpist fools would rather believe in bleach, UV and invermectin than a scientifically tested vaccine. That’s why they are all dying. Trump is fully vaccinated though. He’s not using bleach, UV or invermectin. He’s not stupid. He made billions out of the Presidency. He’s a great con-artist.
Drain the swamp!! Ho Ho!!!
Stay safe!! Keep clear of invermectin, bleach and UV. Get vaccinated!!
