I’ve stopped doing my daily Corona Diaries. I’m no longer considering myself to be in isolation. Life is returning to ‘normal’. It has been pointed out that my life has never really been normal. But that depends on what you consider normal to be, doesn’t it?
The more I see how this country and the world are run the more antiestablishment I become. It’s appalling. There is no morality anywhere. It’s all a game of power and greed.
Democracy is always about choosing the lesser of two evils.
Politics is always about power. It’s a game of lying, cover-up and trying to fool the people while maintaining the status quo – ie. all the wealth still goes to the small elite while the rest of us receive as little as possible in order to keep us quiet.
Whatever happened to unions and a real anti-establishment Labour party intent on taking on the establishment and creating a fairer society? Is the propaganda being pumped out by the Daily Mail, Sun and Daily Express that strong??
Will we ever get impartial media and real exposure of the corruption??
So our clown is still in office despite having now been proved to have repeatedly lied to everyone and broken the law.
I’m sick of hearing that all politicians are equally as bad. They aren’t. There are shades of nastiness and incompetency. Out in the real world, politics makes one hell of a difference. Yes, they all support the establishment but the differences are immense. When the Tories are in power we have food banks, rough sleeping, starving kids, creeping privatisation and massive cuts to all public services. When Labour get in our schools and hospitals get properly funded and the poorest in society are looked after better. They are not as callous and cruel.
Then we have ineptitude and corruption. With this bunch of populist twerps we’ve reached an all-time low.
We’re repeatedly told that our clown got Brexit done. Yes, he did – and the extreme deal he stupidly signed is costing us £37 billion a year, putting up all the prices and threatening to break up the UK. It’s an ill-thought-through disgrace that is diminishing this country.
They say he got the vaccination programme sorted. He didn’t. That was the drug companies making a fortune and the NHS doing a valiant job despite ravaging Tory cuts.
They say he’s doing a great job in Ukraine. Well, he’s selling them arms and spouting his usual twaddle. I just hope the clown doesn’t get us thrown into a nuclear war!
Is this really the best person we could come up with? A clown good at spouting untrue soundbites – an over-ready chump with world-beating dishonesty?
Meanwhile, out in Coronaland, the virus numbers are going down. One wonders if that is just that they are no longer testing or reporting the numbers? We no longer know what is going on. So back to normal!!
Save the Big Dog!!
It’s been eight weeks since we had covid. As immunity only seems to last for 12 weeks I’m beginning to wonder what is going to happen next. In about 4 weeks’ time I will be susceptible again. Will the three shots I’ve had still provide me with background protection so that when I get it again it will not be severe? Will the government provide a fourth booster? Could we purchase a fourth booster?
Who knows? This government works on the mushroom principle. We are kept in the dark and shat on.
Johnson is hiding. Scrutiny and accountability are his greatest enemies.
The pandemic is far from over. South Africa is having its fifth wave, Bill Gates is predicting a much nastier, more infectious, more deadly strain. There are numerous new strains out there. But Johnson wants us to ignore it. He is the champion! He beat covid.
So, this week we have the local elections. I shall watch with interest as the brainwashed either trundle to the polls and, zombielike, vote in their slavemasters, or whether they wake up and kick their arses.
Then we have Putin. From various reports, he is a psychopath with Parkinson’s and terminal cancer who is looking to wipe out humanity in a fit of hubris. He would rather destroy the world than lose face.
The Russian people believe that Russia is in an existential crisis with NATO knocking on their door, a bunch of neoNazis at the gates and the West looking to wipe them out.
Whatever way you look at it the mess they have made of Ukraine is horrendous. Who could believe that a modern nation could be so destroyed? But then Putin did it to Chechen and is doing it to Syria and nobody was that bothered.
We’ll see. Wars have a nasty way of escalating and continuing. They cost trillions, kill millions and traumatise a whole load more. They make brutal killers out of young men. They create rapists and torturers. War has no winners.
Since we went to sleep with Covid the world has become a lot nastier for most of us. The wealthy are still getting richer and moving to places upstream of the fall-out. The rest of us could fry at any minute while struggling with the huge rise in the cost of living. The government refuses to tax the wealthy profiteers and is quite content to allow the poor to starve.
Welcome to global Britain with ready-made imaginary trade deals and record-breaking debt!
Welcome to Borisland the Brexit nightmare!
They fuck it up! We pay for it!
I hope we don’t get fried or ventilated soon! Take Care!!
