Is the virus life threatening?Instead we are all told that the Government is following the science, the R rate of infection is crucial. Mainstream media is blanket covered in exhortations to stay at home and journalists working therein are clearly only too happy to toe the line and spice up their stories with daily tales of death and individual heartache. And what is the result of that? Tens of millions of the under 60s have been left with the impression by irresponsible politicians, scientists and journalists that if they resume normal living they will be staring death in the face. What rubbish. And the nonsense continues. To give but a few examples of where we are post Boris’ Sunday sermon: You can invite a friend to meet you in a park but you can’t meet him/her in your garden. Passengers arriving in the UK are facing 14 days of quarantine unless you are French or Irish because then you are special. Scottish , Welsh and Northern Irish politicians amuse themselves by cocking a snook at Westminster. The Teachers’ unions scream blue murder about schools resuming despite children not being at risk of dying as indeed is the case with teachers who have no pre-existing health conditions.
The chaos continuesThe TUC solemnly declares the Government must lay down hard and fast guidelines for those returning to the workplace thus ignoring that various shops ,distribution centres and manufacturing facilities have in operating perfectly sensibly throughout. Lawyers are licking their lips with the prospect of encouraging disgruntled employees to catch out their employers. The new, barrister trained, leader of Her Majesty’s Opposition contents himself with tutting about the lockdown procedures instead of challenging the lockdown status quo. Pathetic and disappointing. The previous City Grump told Boris to get a grip. Well he hasn’t yet. The hard facts should be telling him by now, that the scientific advice is spurious and the mainstream media have wound themselves up into an unproductive ignorant hysteria. The evidence demands that lockdown ends now for healthy under 60s and all those with existing health complaints must continue to take precautions for the foreseeable future and, as even Boris says, use common sense.
