As Melbourne goes into full lockdown, State borders are closed.. Two weeks after restrictions were partially released and the BLM rallies took place in Melbourne, the surge comes. Actual spread at the BLM rallies is hard to pin down but the rank hypocrisy that allowed the rallies to take place skewered the community commitment to social distancing.
Israel announces a raft of new restrictions as virus cases soar. True, there haven’t been many BLM rallies, about four in all, and all poorly attended; but the lockdown restrictions were probably loosened too soon, the young and the elderly congregated too closely, or too often, and: Back come the Lockdowns!
Leicester, the ‘sweat shop factories’ and the virtual forced labour, complete with a totally lax or non-existent Regulatory influence with regard to Health and Safety: the fact that most workers are from Minority families, all piled in together; is just ‘Prime Time’ for an infection boom. But all the forthcoming inspections, all the factory closures, will neither help punish the Billionaire owners of BooHoo, because you will discover that there is no ‘trail’ or discovery which pins the Virus, or the appalling working conditions; to those Billionaire Hindu owners. As the linked FT piece reveals, the open secret of Leicester’s sweat shops was both well-known and just as well ignored, by both Tory and Labour Parties, because they were both represented upon the Committee. The Tories rejected the Committee’s report, but that was the last word from Labour as well.
The Journal ‘Cell’ has identified a variant of the original Covid-19 which makes it more infectious, and unfortunately, more deadly to the fitter amongst us. The second strain, is now more dominant, and, if we are not careful, will wreck the economic revival so hoped for by the Johnson Government, as well as the Americans, and so on around the world. And as we saw recently on the beaches, in the streets and pubs, and as so prophetically stated by one astute policeman, ‘Drunks don’t know how to ‘socially distance themselves”!
In GB&NI, the politicians who probably brought this whole disaster upon us all, are now seeing how much of our national taxpayers’ cash can be used to bribe us back into ‘open wallets’ mode. They loosened the ratchets, and now we see the consequences, with near open rebellion in corners and patches of London, where the Police literally hold no sway, where a complete Patrol was forced to run away from a ‘Street Party’, where ordinary people are too scared to call the cops, because they know that the ‘effing cops won’t come because they have been emasculated by the bloody politicians.
