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.
So glad that Romain, appears, to have escaped this horrendous crash.
Thankfully, the previously controversial “halo” seems to have saved his life. Methinks the value of this safety feature will be viewed somewhat differently from now on. Any debate about the aesthetics will now be firmly in the bin.
Hopefully, given the magnitude of the incident, Romain has, relatively, minor injuries.
I use that term advisedly, as burns and potentially broken bones are not to be sneered at.
I would also like to mention the medics and marshals who deserve our thanks and respect for their amazing response during the aftermath of this incident.
Romain is receiving treatment at hospital and I wish him well, a speedy recovery and hope we see him racing again soon.
I am so done with these fucking idiots. I do despair at the selfishness that they display..
If they want to put themselves at risk that’s their business.
But, by their actions, they risk infecting everyone around them. OK, they are surrounded by like minded individuals, so who cares if they infecting each other?
But the truth is, it doesn’t end there. By arranging these mass gatherings they put the emergency services at risk.
Such as the police, who could be doing something more productive with their time, have to monitor / control the marchers.
And, because there is always a rogue element who see a peaceful protest as an opportunity for mayhem, the medics also end up wasting their time on these idiots before transporting them to our already overloaded hospitals.
Selfish. It’s the only way to describe their actions.
It defies belief that “Diplomatic Immunity” should override morality.
“Diplomatic Immunity” should not protect those that kill or attempt to kill. In theory, a foreign state could send an assassin to kill our Prime Minister. Then claim “Diplomatic Immunity” to allow the assassin to go home.
This woman, Anne Sacoolas, should be returned to the UK to face justice. She is the wife of a technical support staffer at RAF Croughton, Northamptonshire. She had no role within the base and there is not entitled to immunity
Foreign states that protect common criminals are no better than those they protect.
Cowering behind “Diplomatic Immunity” is unacceptable.
I nicked this from a post on Facebook, from a group I belong too. It sums up my thoughts, completely. What say you ? ….
Don’t blame Boris and his men for locking us away, Think instead of the all night raves, that happened every day, Think back to all those marches, when black lives mattered most, And the crowded summer beaches, all along the coast.
Think back to newsreel funerals where a hundred more have come, And street gatherings of the selfish, as stupid stood next to dumb, Some say rules are made to be broken, but their actions have a cost, And for every thoughtless action, someone’s life just might be lost.
So don’t look to those in authority, when blame you seek to lay, We’re locked up because the selfish, have ignored rules every day, So in this coming month or so, don’t rant or rave or shout, Just do as you’re bloomin’ told, and burn this virus out!
