As ever with BoZo, it was strong on rhetoric and short on substance. Like a lot of his pronouncements: Hardly worth the effort of trying to understand what it means and it most certainly raised more questions about detail than it offered answers to the problems.So here is something you may wish to ponder upon, just hours after Blundering Boris’s latest ‘Lambs to the Slaughter’ announcement, my Mother has received a letter this morning from the NHS advising her to stock up on Tinned and Dry Goods ? That sounds like they are expecting a second wave of high infections and perhaps more panic buying Just to add to the ‘Conspiracy Theories’, if the Boris road map is indicating that by 1st July everything else, not already having been opened up, is then permitted to do so, subject to infection rates of course, then why is the Chancellor about to announce an extension to the furlough payments up to the end of September although at a reduced rate of 60%
As you say, 'Lambs to the Slaughter'. The reality is they simply can't protect anyone in the longrun, unless and until there's a viable vaccine developed. The idea of letting kids go back to school beggars belief. In general children have a high survival rate and few symptoms, so they are the perfect carrier. Fit them all into a classroom, add one child with Covid-19 and bingo: a hundred new cases in the making overnight.
To be perfectly candid, I get the impression it's being conducted as a managed cull of the vulnerable - because they simply can't prevent it with the present treatments.............. and the synic in me says Boris-the-mouthpiece-of-the-Brexiteers wants to "get Brexit done" at any cost.
