The UK death toll now fast approaches 100,000. One of the worst in the world no matter how the stats are manipulated, compared or whatever. Yet it is "difficult to make any comparisons" according to our Government, who nevertheless find it easy to do so when it comes to vaccine roll out figures.
The ploy of getting the public to blame themselves and each other is in full swing. It certainly beats the heat being put on the long, long, long record of sheer Govt incompetence since day 1. So many little news items tell of "parties" and gatherings by a non-compliant public.
Since the beginning of the latest lockdown nearly 4000 cases of companies breaking the rules have been reported. Lack of social distancing, no room to do so, too many people together etc etc. Just 81 have received "a warning" and yet the number of fines being dished out to individuals rises by the day. Obviously when people mix together for a party or a drink the virus strikes, virulently, but if they gather in an office or on a factory floor then it holds back.
So it goes on. The sheer s***storm that is Tory Britain (global or not) stumbles on.
On a personal level, my partner and myself both received the jab yesterday. They fitted me in even though I had no official appointment. All was helpful, friendly and efficient. Whether or not we should now ideally receive the next jab in three weeks, six weeks or twelve weeks, and which is the best, seems to depend upon news source and just who is doing the talking.
