With the UK now entering a second lockdown you would have hoped that people would have commonsense from last time….turns out no. This is problematical for two reasons – one they are the people who haven’t realised that the government have been quietly passing laws to ensure the lockdown is mandatory, I cite The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Collection of Contact Details etc and Related Requirements) Regulations 2020 which was passed without a draft being presented. There are the idiots who think there will be a shortage of everything and are greedily buying everything so as to not run out – leaving none for others.
Boris Johnson may be angry that his little secret was leaked on Friday night but if he had a better handle on the situation we would not be in this preposterous situation again. The British people are now angry and are dangerously in the realms of not giving a fuck at all about anything, many many people are going to be fined, I read a story this weekend of one of our local pubs being fined £1k for their lock-in – it read like a news story from the 1900s people were ‘dancing together on the dance floor without face coverings’ and other such shocking things. I agree with the PCs statement that a few shouldn’t spoil it for the many but let’s face it we are back in lockdown so how can this be progress?
Its almost like we have taken a big step back over the last 6 months or so – where even the slightest bit of entertainment is distasteful. Any form of physical contact with someone one other than those you live with is considered a taboo, the English have never been particularly touchy-feely but there are plenty who are deficient in human contact and emotion to the point it has seriously affected their mental health.
Stay happy and healthy in lockdown it is a difficult time for everyone but I would rather be safe than dead. Leave a comment below or join the conversation at facebook.com/onlynomeswriting or twitter.com/nomwritingfood
