one day, surviving lockdown will be a badge of honour
It’s not a matter for applause Boris
Here in England it’s day 44 of the official lockdown, and around the country there are many people still suffering self-isolation. You want to know something, solitary confinement constitutes a ‘cruel and unusual punishment’, and yet the British Government has inflicted this torture on it’s entire population, for no very good reason at all.
Of course this lockdown does not apply to them, not to the British Government, not to the great and the good. All the swines at the trough, all the government ministers, politicians, health officials, civil servants, the scientists, the intelligentsia advising the government and National Health Service through multifarious committees, none of these people either believes in lockdown or think it applies to them.
Among the dozens and dozens of scandals around the self-important, sanctimonious, and stupid people who have cheated the whole lockdown thing we have Catherine Calderwood, who used to be Scotland’s Chief Medical Officer. She had to resign her post after breaking her own rules and visiting her second home in Earlsferry, Fife, which is a hell of a long way from Edinburgh, the Scottish capital.
But that pales into insignificance if we consider the case of Professor Neil Ferguson, who happens to be the bastard who told the British Government there would be 500,000 avoidable deaths here if we didn’t have lockdown. Mr Trump was persuaded to impose lockdown in the USA after Ferguson told the President there would be 2,000,000 deaths in the USA if lockdown wasn’t imposed.
Well, it seems married with kids Feruguson (51) has been having his amoral slut, married with kids Antonia Staats (38) travel all across London for a regular fuck while Ferguson’s own lockdown was in force. I’d like to bet I know what kind of people these two are, since they met on an online dating site OKCupid. You know what, the architect of lockdown having his slut break the lockdown rules so they could do whatever it is they do for sexual gratification is beyond contemptible disgust.
Personally, I gave up on lockdown on the first of May. Today I took a 3 hour walk by the sea, in the fresh air and sunshine, and I feel a hell of a lot better for it.
Not many others around here seem to be much interested in self-isolation either. Lots of cars on the road, lots of bicyclists around, and where I walk there were lots of other people taking the air and enjoying the sunshine and fresh sea breezes.
The supermarkets are open, although you may need to stand in line outside for a while. Restaurants are offering take-outs, our local DIY super-store is doing take-outs for stuff like paint and tools, building and gardening contractors are working, and IKEA is opening its UK stores on May 18th.
Some say we are all equal, we are all in this COVID-19 thing together. And that we should stay at home to protect the Health Services. All I know is they can all fuck with whoever they like as long as they leave the rest of us alone.
meanwhile the rest stand in line
