Selfish Idiots

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.

BBC News: Harry Dunn’s parents lose High Court immunity review


BBC News – Harry Dunn’s parents lose High Court immunity review https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-northamptonshire-55057671

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.

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!

The Writing Is On The Wall

I believe the UK government is reluctant, as they have been all along. Reluctant to take the required steps to get us through this crisis.

It is that reluctance that has led to the haphazard implementation of restrictions across the country. It has also contributed to the levels of distrust by Joe Public.

It is due to the disturbing results of the REACT study, and the actions of the French and German governments, that lead me to believe that our government needs to act swiftly and firmly.

The writing is on the wall.

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.

Sky News: Free school meals: Boris Johnson admits he hasn’t spoken to Marcus Rashford since June

This is hardly breaking news.

Rashford is just a bloody footballer.

He is doing good things but I fail to see why it’s breaking news that the Prime Minister hasn’t spoken to him

Justice At Last


Teenagers convicted of terrorism in England and Wales could receive whole-life terms under sentencing reforms described by the government as the most radical in almost 20 years.

We are taught, at a very young age, the difference between right and wrong. We know what is the moral thing to do.

Terrorism is wrong. We all know that.

Therefore it is right that terrorists of any age are punished for their actions.

I truly hope that the government pushes ahead with these changes to suitably punish all terrorists and child killers.
