I hope they sort out Brexit, once the COVID-19 has been dealt with of course.

COVID19 NEW WAVE from protests
No mystery that Covid spiked after 2-3 weeks of protests/riots. I notice participants are inconsistent with masks, certainly aren’t socially distancing.

you lose-get it?

Just checked the morning news.

Nope. No second wave in UK today. Let's hope it stays that way.

Using a link that is now six months old and pre-dates the first wave doesn't give a great deal of credibility to your argument about the possibility of a second wave

Since our s***-for-brains government belatedly recognised that actually, Coronavirus might be a tad dangerous, our alert level has never been below high. We have the third highest rate of deaths per capita in the world, only behind Brazil and US (which as we all know, just HAS to be #1 in everything. Meh.) Of course our risk level is high. Duhhhhhh...


But actually, since I wrote yesterday, a little mini-spike has occurred in Leicester (It's a place, not somebody's Uncle Lester) It has been reported that there have been around 800 new cases recorded in the last week. Leicester (the English city, not one of your uncles) has had its lockdown regulations extended for a further two weeks to keep an eye on the situation there.

We'll survive.

And Brexit is already an enormous clusterfeck. We are now past the point where an extension to the transition period can be requested so unless our Prime Minister shifts his revoltingly obese butt into action (which is the least likely of all options) we will have a "No Deal" situation in January and then the brown stuff will really start to make contact with the air circulating device.

Take my word for it.

Duh indeed. Now I agree with you on that point. Why the hell did we (as a nation that is) vote in a rogues gallery of liars criminals, dissemblers, profiteering chancers and sociopathic anarchists?

Unfortunately, the whole thing in the end came down to the cult of personality (and I took great care in spelling 'cult' ). Johnson has spent many years building up his persona of loveable scallywag. Appearing on comedy TV shows, self-abasing himself in social situations to give us all a laugh, sucking up to the lowest common denominator by being the "sort of bloke you'd want for a mate."

The scruffy head of hair is a part of this persona. It's his clown face. To many Britons, looking like he's been dragged through a hedge backwards is his way of showing a fine disregard for convention. A lot of people will vote for that kind of maverick.

At the same time as he was developing this persona, he worked (for more than ten years) as the Brussels columnist for a newspaper and every week wrote articles that "exposed" the EU chipping away at British sovereignty... dictating to the country.... making up oppressive rules that changed our way of life....

All of these columns were lies. None of the things he wrote had anything more than the merest grain of truth in them. For example: The EU never told Britain we couldn't have bendy cucumbers. What they did was send out an advisory notice to Dutch cucumber growers stating that it was easier to package straight cucumbers. And it is. Take a rectangular box and see how much easier and efficient it is to pack straight cucumbers in it rather than bendy ones.

But Johnson turned this into a matter of national outrage. "We can't let Brussels dictate to us the shape of the Great British cucumber" he thundered from his pulpit.

Brussels officials laughed at him. Surely the British people are too intelligent to take this clown seriously, they chuckled.

They were wrong. They reckoned without the power that a flag-waving Little Englander has in the psyche of many people here. He built up his reputation as a "crusader". He was "championing British values and traditions."

And so we are where we are.

I didn't vote for him. I'm a card carrying member of the only political party in UK that has any credibility for honesty and integrity. The Green Party.

Yep... I'm a Green. My party of choice has no chance whatsoever of getting into government, and I'm often told it's a wasted vote but hell.... it's my vote to waste. And I feel better about myself for having nothing to do with the wretched charlatans who are running this country today.

I have a tee shirt that will say all that needs to be said when things go horribly wrong: "Don't blame me. I voted remain."

34% of the total electorate voted Tory. More voted for Parties offering at least some sort of rethink on all things Brexit. But with the UK's electoral system we have the Hard Brexit Tories with a huge majority going full steam ahead.

Don't blame me, I voted Monster Raving Loony.

A far more sensible option than voting Tory.
