England expects an end to coronavirus chaos
scenes of covid chaos at Heathrow airport
It’s lockdown day 483, and today, Monday 19th of July is supposed to be our Freedom Day. Except it isn’t because Bumbling Boris Johnson seems to think it’s funny to be the Prime Minister of a country stumbling from one farcical situation to another.
There are still a hell of a lot of covid restrictions in place, principally surrounding overseas travel, and what happens if you’re unlucky enough to have found yourself anywhere near someone who has tested positive for the ‘Indian Influenza’ or ‘South African Variant’.
If you have been near someone who has tested positive, then you are supposed to go into 10 days of strict self-isolation ~ and I mean the conditions around that are eye-wateringly onerous. And, just in case you didn’t know you’d possibly been exposed to covid, your cell phone will alert you because it will have been near the cell phone of someone on the lurgy list. Or the NHS test and trace system will finger you, or a neighbour, or your workplace, or your kids school…..
Of course, it was predictable that Boris and his cronies would try to exempt themselves from all the illogical and draconian rules and regulations they’ve put in place after Health Minister Sajid Javid tested positive. But, the furore when it was announced that Boris was above the law has persuaded the bumbling buffoon that he’d better stick by the rules after all.
Luckily for him that he’s probably got someone to explain all the rules and regulations for him, because there’s bugger all chance of the general public understanding them.
I predict that Boris’ days are numbered. The buffoon has shown himself to be utterly out of kilter with public opinion far too many times for his party to go on standing by him. Old Etonian and Oxford University arrogance may well spell the death knell of his prime ministerial tenure ~ eventually.
But it’s not all black and white.
covid queues are longer than the flights
