Don’t Blame Boris


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!

Well Done Australia 🇦🇺


Australia’s response had been “light years ahead” of the US and the UK

At the start of this year I was in Australia and witnessed their government’s actions, taken to control the virus and protect the population.

At the same time I observed, from afar, the UK’s actions, which I believe were too little, too late.

And now I believe we are experiencing the results of those actions. That is the haphazard and chaotic implementation of further restrictions.

Had the UK followed the Australian pattern we would be in much better shape. Acting quickly, shutting internal and external borders, enforcing quarantine wherever you were travelling from and so on. Had the UK Government followed this pattern we would have experienced fewer deaths and infections, and we would not be continuing to damage the UK economy.

So, I say well done Melbourne and well done Australia.
