The sun was shining in Yorkshire, the sky was blue and it is still unseasonably warm, though a stiff Westerly breeze made it feel a bit colder than it was.
Today I’ve been doing some reading!! Yes reading!! Now that I’ve completed the edit of my Beefheart book I have a little time to read and a backlog of books!!
I’ve also been sorting my room out. Going through old paperwork. Finding stuff I’d forgotten I had. Strange to work through the detritus of life, the debris that accumulates through the years.
Meanwhile, out in Coronaland, our resident clown is a frightened wounded beast. The arrows are sticking out his back – there’s a big Peppa Pig one, a huge ERG one, a giant negative popularity poll one, a nasty sleaze one, a big wallpaper one, a massive one that says liar, a second salary one, a gigantic cronyism one, a Christmas parties one, one for entitlement, one for arrogance, one for blithering, one for incompetence, one for lack of leadership, one for being a shambling wreck, one for messing up Brexit, a javelin for ‘One rule for them; another for us’, one for being racist, one for being inept, one for not delivering, one for tax rises, one for National Insurance rises, one from the fishermen, one from the farmers, one from Northern Ireland, Several for lobbying and other crass incomes, one for revolving doors, one for being invisible, one for breaking laws, a whole load for promises not delivered, a bunch for silly media soundbites that come to nothing, a few for ‘levelling up’, one for failing to lead, a couple for being a clown, others for a variety of gaffes and a big spear for being a complete tosser.
Our clown is looking like a porcupine. Straight off his zipline to become a complete joke. 69% now think he’s a wanker. Amazingly 31% think he’s alright. Lol. Goes to show that the country has a lot of very stupid people.
I watch with gleeful interest as the Nasty Party recede in the polls and observe the repugnant Tories waking up to the fact that they are no longer fooling the public; that their popularity is falling through the floor; that they might no longer have all that power and wealth coming their way!! The profiteering conmen are falling from grace.
We all know what they do in those circumstances: like a pack of cowardly syphilitic hyenas they turn and rip each other to bits. Cameron and Osborne jumped ship to multimillion-pound futures to avoid the sort of thing that happened to Thatcher, Major, IDS, May and others. They were all unceremoniously knifed!!
Ha Ha. Great entertainment. I look forward to the evisceration of this clown. When they are of no use they are callously ejected. It’s the Tory way!!
So yesterday there were another 137,583 new cases with 73 more deaths.
There are predictions that 25% of the public sector will be off due to Covid. That’ll ravage Health and Education – but so what?
In the last week there’s been a 43% increase in new cases and a 50% increase in death – but hey – no big deal!!
Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are all introducing stringent measures – but, you know, we English are all convivial!!
In schools, the kids are wearing masks. There are plans to merge classes and have unqualified people looking after them. Childminding is back!!
The Omicron looks to be milder but the sheer numbers are creating the strain!!
Johnson the gambler doesn’t give a toss! The big wave is coming. You can bet that the Tory profiteers are stashing their loot safely offshore in the Cayman Islands. Everything is hunky-dory!!
Stay Safe!! We’ve been abandoned! Do what makes sense!!
