The govt (aka B Johnson & Cummings) want us to go out to pubs and celebrate the end of "our long national hibernation" . It's our "patriotic duty".
2 pint glasses (or possibly 1 litre) are to be introduced so that trips to the bar won't be quite so frequent. Are the loos going to open? How can people keep 1 metre apart in confined spaces, especially the mens' loos. But they can pee in the bushes. Imagine walking the dog past a pub garden in the morning.
I suspect BJ and DC think that if they keep providing little treats, we'll soon forget what has happened. The fact is, 65,700 people have died and they were friends, family, neighbours and colleagues and they will be missed.
This inept government are solely responsible for this. No doubt some of you will point to silly people not obeying the rules, which weren't particularly clear in the first place.
However, the govt are the ones setting the agenda and who are responsible for telling the various agencies what to do and to ensure that they have the means to do this. The govt have fallen short in many respects. their failures have been listed elsewhere on this site so I don't need to repeat them.
Some people will say that many of those who died had underlying health conditions. But most people with long term illnesses take regular medication which controls their disease. A study back in April (from Glasgow University) said that most people who died of covid could have had another 10 years or so life left to them.
The govt have an 80 seat majority so the opposition can do little. Perhaps it's time to contact your local MP to let you views be heard. I'm a Labour supporter and there's not much that those of us on the left can do. But those of you with decent Tory MPs can do something so that when Johnson loses interest, or is kicked out, we can have an honourable PM - plus the benefit of losing DC and with a bit of luck, most of the Cabinet.
