A cold day – sunny morning and cold afternoon. I went out shopping this morning. Good to see that everybody still has their masks on.
We had friends around for a meal. The one topic of conversation was Boris Johnson and how long he was going to hang on.
The consensus was that he’d hold on til the grim end. He’ll probably still be governing from a prison cell!! Do a better job too! He won’t be sloshed on £180 a bottle wine or eating those free banquets. It’d be healthier for both him and the country!!
All four of us thought it would be best for him to stay as prime minister. We can put up with two more years of utter chaos, inequality, austerity, sleaze and corruption if it means we can rid ourselves of these arrogant Tories for a generation or two!!
The longer the clown is in power the more damage he does to them!
Rory Stewart was right (I hate to agree with even a moderate Tory) – it isn’t the Tory party anymore; it has morphed into a Populist party with fascist overtones.
Just imagine if we end up with a fascist Tory Party and a fascist Trump GOP????? It would be world domination!! They’d probably want to start world war 3 with China or Russia – probably both!!
That wouldn’t work well. There’s a long list of countries who have kicked our arses all ready – Korea, Vietnam, Cambodia, Afghanistan, Iraq – none of whom were world powers. I think the only places the warmongers have succeeded in have been San Salvador and the Falklands.
England could conceivably hold its own with the Isle of Wight (unless they had an alliance with the Isle of Mann and attacked us from two sides).
I think too many people are utterly deluded. They still think we have an empire. They need to learn their history. When we did have an empire all the tremendous wealth we plundered went straight into the coffers of the same people who have been profiteering during Brexit and Covid. Ordinary people were simply used as cheap cannon fodder or lived in slums while the Eton boys played polo.
An incredible 33% still support this bunch of useless profiteering toffs. They doff their caps and know their place. Boris – such a nice chap – a good laugh. NO NO NO. Boris Johnson is an overprivileged entitled millionaire who is taking everyone for a ride – just like Cameron before him – remember Greenswill!! These people are in it for the money. Power is the way to get more money. We’re all in it together???? You must be joking!! They are walking off with millions taking us for mugs.
I’m surprised the Cayman Islands still float!!
Where was I???
Oh yes – keep digging Johnson!! We’re rooting for you!! Blunder, bluster and lie!! The Tory Party needs to sink a lot further yet!!
So yesterday There were possibly 57,623 new cases – who knows?? There were 45 deaths though tomorrow that’ll probably go up!!
Are we nearing a herd immunity?? Is Omicron very mild indeed??
I know of quite a few with it now!! Only one really serious and he caught it a year and a half ago!
There is a substantial risk of a heart attack in the year after catching covid!!
