The UK holds its breath, waiting for Boris Johnson to speak tonight of the latest measures to be enforced to counter the second wave of Covid19.
(Well, not me, I don't listen to a word he says.......
People wait to find out what further "world beating" ideas the Government of Boris Johnson will anounce. Having achieved the fifth highest mortality rate in the world and the biggest economic downturn of the european nations, he looks for further conquests.
Rumours of a "Three Tier System". Each area will be told the tier it is on, the severity of the lockdown. It is rather strange at the moment that areas of very high infection rates, but within the boundaries of sitting Ministers of the Government, are in fact avoiding the current restrictions. Well, I say "strange" but fairly predictable. Bolton, with an infection rate of 26.78, in stringent lockdown. Newark and Sherwood, infection rate 182.16 (sic) avoiding such measures. Sitting MP a Tory Minister, the Tories the "Party of all the People" who according to a spokesperson yesterday "would NEVER do anything that treated any one area of the UK different from any other." No indeed.
And so the story goes on. Tragic in many ways.
The sad thing is when looking at history, at least for the past few years in the UK, no matter the stupidity, the carnage, the ignorance, the lies.......the Tory Party will in all likelihood still emerge smelling of roses.
