Why ?


I have just read this article about Christmas decorations being vandalised.

Residents in Whiteley have suggested that youths with ‘bladed weapons’ are the culprits.

It shouldn’t be the case, but I never cease to be amazed by the depths people are prepared to descend.

Given the difficult times we are navigating, why would anyone deliberately set out to cause grief and aggravation for the homeowners and spoil the pleasure for everyone.

This is such a selfish and thoughtless act.

I hope that they are caught and punished.

Christmas Reflections


Following much nagging and abuse, I finally capitulated and put up the tree. I have even turned on the lights outside the house.

This must be the earliest preparation, for me, ever and the first time we have placed the tree in the conservatory. And, I have to say, I like the effect with all the reflections.

MPs to no longer receive pay rise


http://news.sky.com/story/covid-19-mps-to-no-longer-receive-pay-rise-of-more-than-1633000-after-ipsa-u-turns-due-to-pandemic-impact-12158160

Giving MPs a £3000 pay rise at this time, would have been immoral. Also, a slap in the face, to the hundreds of thousands of British people, who have lost so much financially and personally, during the pandemic.

It’s the right decision. Indeed, given Britain’s financial state and the economical hard road yet to be travelled, I find it hard to forsee that such a pay rise would be acceptable anytime soon.

BBC News: Rita Ora apologises for second breach of Covid lockdown restrictions


Throw the book at her, for her blatant and shameless disregard for the rules, that most people are abiding by.

She is not a good role model.

Celebrity does not give you a free pass to act like a little princess.

She obviously thinks that saying “sorry” and splashing the cash will get her out of trouble.

Crass Stupidity


‘High Value’ Business Travellers’ Quarantine Exemption Branded ‘Dangerous And Elitist’ https://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/business-travellers-exemption-from-quarantine-branded-dangerous-and-elitist_uk_5fc9ea49c5b63a153450c4bd

If our government goes ahead with this relaxation of rules, for “High Value” business travellers, they deserve all the vitriol coming their way.

Covid-19 doesn’t discriminate between rich and poor.

If we are going to truly protect this country then the quarantine rules need to be applied, strictly and fairly, to everyone who travels outside of the UK.

No exceptions.

Wake up Boris, this makes no sense.
