Not quite so cold today. The snow has melted and it is no longer icy. I worked on my Captain Beefheart book, listened to some Talking Heads and then we walked into Driffield for a gelato at Robertos. Scrumptious and indulgent.
Meanwhile, out in Coronaland, the Tories dipped 10% in the by-election. I am amazed any fools are still voting for them People are blind. Like Trump they must be laughing themselves silly. They know that the sheep will still vote for them no matter what they do. Sleaze, corruption, self-serving – means nothing. The Turkeys vote for Christmas.
Yesterday we had another 53,067 new cases with 143 deaths. It’s going up!
The Omicron variant is already spreading!! We have 42 confirmed cases now!! Looks like that genie is out of the bottle. Fortunately, we have splurged £37 billion on a track and trace system so that should be alright then. Surely, with £37 billion they can keep the lid on a mere 42 cases? I reckon I could do that myself! If only I was a Tory I could probably get a multimillion contract to do just that. You don’t need experience or results. Just deposit the cash directly to the Cayman Islands.
So now, without any leadership, we are tottering towards a future lockdown with more and more restrictions.
Better late than never.
It seems that this Omicron variant likes reinfecting those who have already had it!!
Perhaps it’ll get Johnson at one of his illegal Number 10 gatherings. That’d be poetic justice!!
I wonder how keen the nurses, with their pay-cut rewards, will be to sit up with him through night after night saving him from death?
Hopefully, the whole cabinet will be at the drinks party at Number 10 and the whole lot of the entitled, overprivileged arseholes will go down with Omicron. Serves the elitist, arrogant, rule-breaking bastards right!!
We can but hope!!
Stay safe!! It’s just a pandemic!
