I should be furious but I’m not.
It has reached the point in this Looking Glass World that I am neither cross nor surprised at anything.
Our Glorious Gubmint has decided at the eleventh hour to postpone opening up pubs, restaurants and cafés for another while. This of course plunges about 120,000 staff back into unemployment just when they were looking forward to a return next week. There is no mention of the stock that was bought in anticipation of the reopening so I suppose that will just go to waste.
The reasoning for the delay is apparently down to this “Delta Variant” we keep hearing about. The “experts” put new numbers into their precious computer programmes and the computer replied that 700,000 will end up being infected and 2,000 will die. This is not a fact; this is a mathematical prediction based solely on a piece of computer code. In order to save those mythical people from a cough or a sore throat we must of course add more onto the quarter of a trillion debt we now owe.
They are talking about a “vaccination passport”. They have already categorically stated that this is unworkable and dismissed it out of hand, but now they are trying to make the unworkable workable. That lack of logic alone should be enough to consign them to nice padded rooms with gentle music and nice white coated attendants.
As I said, I’m no longer surprised.
It’s just another day in Looking Glass World.
