a litany of mistakes, fudges, and cock-ups
Ford Edsel, not a big hit either
The British Government has just announced a new list of places they will kindly allow us mere mortals to travel to on vacation. It’s called the Green List and consists of; Anguila, Antigua and Barbuda, Australia, Balearic Islands, Barbados, Bermuda, British Antarctic Territory, British Indian Ocean Territory, British Virgin Islands, Brunei, Cayman Is, Dominica, Falkland Is, Faroe Is, Gibraltar, Grenada, Iceland, Israel, Maderia, Malta, Monserrat, New Zealand, Pitcairn Is, South Georgia, Saint Helena, Turks and Caicos Is.
And thank you very much for bugger all. Neither Australia nor New Zealand will admit tourists, half of the list are remote islands in the middle of empty oceans, (Napoleon was exiled to St. Helena) ~ getting flights to these places is difficult verging on impossible, and most of the rest have stringent entry requirements. Maybe I could go to Gibraltar, or perhaps Madeira. BTW, it’s not a good idea to travel to the Caribbean in June, July, August, or September.
This list is about as well thought out as was the Ford Edsel and pleases nobody at all, except maybe Boris Johnson, Matt Hancock, and several times disgraced adulterer Grant Schapps, (Minister for Transport). Travellers are warned that the Green List is subject to change with no notice whatsoever, meaning that wherever you are you may need to get back to the UK pretty damn quickly. What Fun.
Maybe the country is in such a complete mess because government ministers, bureaucrats, and health officials are too busy boffing their assistants, aides, and mistresses to do their job properly. The latest culprit is the ‘fucking useless’ Health Minister Matt Hancock, (married with 3 children), who is having an affair with his ‘advisor’ Gina Coladangelo, (also married with 3 children). Who can blame him when his Prime Minister Boris Johnson is himself a serial adulterer.
I have it on very good authority, from a very close friend, that no sane woman would find either man remotely attractive. Personally, I wouldn’t trust either of them to flip burgers at a truck stop on the I-15.
You couldn’t make it up.
Matt & Gina
not an elegant couple
