Beeb interviewed several people as to why their breaking the restrictions. This is a quote (allegedly ) from the first interviewee:-
""You make decisions, and you take risks. Sometimes the risks get you fined, sometimes the risks get you arrested, sometimes the risk spreads a massive disease to the rest of the world."
"...are we human, or are we diver?"
A friend of mine, who would be on first name terms with a couple of Cabinet Ministers, said that bj is " A Libertarian, who does not believe in removing peoples freedoms".
I asked where the line was between Libertarian and anarchist; subject changed.
Next door neighbours daughter was crew for Emirates until covid made her redundant, the lockdown restrictions she was living under in the Gulf, really made you wonder if the UK was even trying.
It is an old saying that in trying to please everyone you please no one. I feel that this is where we are now. The restrictions are not really hard enough to stop the spread and the lack of restrictions not enough to let us have our entertainment and keep shops and leisure outlets open to keep economically active. Add in the fact that half the government are inept and halfwitted and it is not hard to see why no one is pleased.
I find it sad that so many of us (English) are so accustomed to this piss poor level of functioning that there is no outcry about it.
We give £350m a week to the EU. Let's give it to Dido Harding instead.
