Been working with private clients today (Leeds area) and found people increasingly angry at the north/south divide in the country - no new thing of course. None of the people I talk with are denying covid exists but increasingly angry at confusing advice, lack of clarity, and the need for diverse restrictions in different parts of the country. A lot of hostility towards "the south" and "that lot in Westminster" who have lost touch with reality.
The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing

In respect of Covid, I donít think Westminster has lost touch with reality. I donít think they ever found it

The Press needs to stop publishing inflammatory stories and doomwatch headlines for a start..People believe (for some reason) what they read in their favourite daily or see on their TVs and none of them are posing as anything but antagonistic from one or another point of view..If ever there was a case for some national unity this is it but instead we seem to get bluster and intentional obfuscation.. Oh, btw, has Farage succumbed or is he faggin' it in an enclave somewhere?

Boris Johnson and his team are doing a balancing act and trying to stop the country going broke. Labour party want a national lockdown which stop the virus but will also stop places which are making money and taxes. Saying they have lost touch with reality is wrong. Because people in high risk are just not obeying the rules, the system worked out will not work and many will die because of it. And Boris of course will get the blame.

The concept of a national lockdown is a recipe for economic disaster. Right back at teh beginning of all this we were told that covid-19, like most pulmonary conditions, could be expected to reduce in prevalence in warm, sunny weather, increase in prevalence in cold, damp weather - and that us exactly what we saw and what we are seeing. The advocates of the lockdown claim that it was the lockdown that achieved the reduce prevalence, but it can't be proved to what extent the lockdown contributed to the reduction, or even if, in the long term, it has. What is very clear is that as the National Health Service transformed into a National Covid Service, a lot of people failed to receive treatment and/or failed to be diagnosed for other conditions, a situation which is resulting, and will result, in premature deaths.

Meanwhile in Germany...

That's that then, we'll have to let ours stay open.
Just as a matter of interest Mr Tilbrook is going to court again to overturn the restrictions.

I read that they are wetting themselves at record "infection" rates which turned out to be about half ours with a bigger population. Of course they may be counting real infections with symptoms rather than including the asymptomatic as ours do.

If I was in Germany I'd still be giving the pubs & restaurants a big swerve as the phrase 'it is not apparent' it would help fight coronavirus, does nothing to reassure me.

The iceberg wasn't apparent until a couple of minutes before the Titanic hit it.
Make every day count, each day is precious.

There is nothing more frightful than the ignorant in action.

Thatís the thing. Anyone with an IQ bigger than their shoe size, ought to be be able to work out their personal level of their risk. If they canít work that out, sorry to be cruel, but we are probably better off without them
