So the UK has is to be plunged into another pointless bloody lockdown. As pressured by SAGE. I thought we had a bunch of idiots in charge over here. No, there seems to be a competition on as to which Government can F*ck their respective populations the hardest.
I find myself wondering if the European academics in question are running a book on how much a given western population can take in the way of economic pain and social misery. Or is this some clever backhanded way of discouraging illegal migrants? “Nah, don’t bother with the West, it’s a third world shithole.” Well it’s certainly heading that way. At least if these lockdowns continue.
Personally I think some bugger, somewhere is laughing up their sleeve at us all, watching stupid, know-nothing politicians and their ‘advisers’ turn once prosperous places into dystopias where only the feral homeless dwell. The feral homeless being the rump of the population after all the smart money has buggered off and found that all their reserves can’t really buy anything because the whole economy has crashed and burned leaving a desert behind it. Only those who know how to grow things out of sight of others will thrive. But that’s the extreme case scenario. All I know is that it will take ten years or so to fully recover from this Government caused mess.
This will be known as the generation that had it all, then threw it away for a bad flu bug.
Me and Mrs S are just KBO’ing. Dealing with each challenge as it arises. Hoping for the best but preparing for the worst and making sure we help the kids out where needed. I just feel like I’m bleeding money for no good reason. And there’s nothing I can do about it.
