20. Well, that’s another Sunday tour over and done with. Do you think Munguin would consider double time for us tour guides or is that a silly question?

WE’LL COME OUT FOR 2 MINUTES AND CLAP FOR YOU ONCE A WEEK (for a photo opportunity)

BUT WEEKLY TESTING?

WHAT?

YOU THINK WE ARE MADE OF MONEY?

EbYgimIXsAEMnQk

Planes to paint, palaces to do up, apps to buy to keep Dom happy.

Now that you saved the prime minister’s glove puppet’s life, you can just get on with it any old how.

Munguin will attest to the fact that I’m one of the least violent people in the Towers, but I’d seriously love to slap these b******* about.

YER FLEGS UPSIDE DOON, YA WALLY

A metaphor for the Cummings Government

Soooo, £900,000 well spent, huh? Around the world we will be seen as a proud union, self confident in its ability to reestablish itself as an independent leading nation, respected and looked up to by all…

…Except we won’t because everyone will be choking themselves laughing at the fact that even the military didn’t know which way up their flag was supposed to be.

And it looks like they will have to do it over again, (another £900,000?).

Oh and just in case you thought that after a wild day’s celebration yesterday, the good common sense of the British population had come back to its senses…

THAT WENT WELL, THEN

Boris Johnson: Our principle is to trust the British public to use their common sense in the full knowledge of the risks.

And, 24 hours later, the sun came out, so these British people that he trusted to use that well known British common sense, did this.

This was at Bournemouth in the south of England, where incidentally, one of the Great British Values of which we hear so much, came into play. Leave your rubbish behind you… create employment… let someone else pick it up. No less than 12.5 tonnes of rubbish was left on the beach.

Mind you, the English weren’t the only ones doing it. The other day, Portobello Beach was relatively crowded:

 Crowds flocked to Portobello beach yesterday

And WG Saraband (Twitter) showed the rubbish left behind yesterday on the Meadows in Edinburgh.

What on earth stopped them from doing the (to me) natural thing and putting their rubbish in the bags and taking it home?

When they go back today do they expect it miraculously to be cleared of rubbish, or are they happy to sit down again in their own litter?

SO, IS PENNINGTON SAYING THAT THE MEDICAL ADVICE GIVEN TO THE SCOTTISH GOVERNMENT IS WRONG?

EbRABS2WoAA3j4h

The way I see it (correct me if I’m wrong any of you scientific Munguinites) but this virus can be spread by droplets of saliva. These pass out of your mouth into the air as you speak. They are more pronounced when you use certain hard sounds like, for example, “P”s “B”s “Q”s and “T”s, and much more pronounced if you cough or sneeze.

Right, so, if you have a mask on, some of these droplets will be retained in the material instead of being blasted towards someone else’s face, or indeed onto something that they might then touch. And even those that get through are likely to be slowed down and deflected.

So wearing a mask is largely a courtesy to other people. Sadly, unfortunately, some people lack courtesy.

By the same token, if you are talking to someone face to face, being 2 metres away from them means that the droplets are likely to have fallen to the ground before they get to your interlocutor.

Being 1 metre away increases by, I imagine, a considerable amount, the likelihood that the droplets will land on whomsoever you are talking to.

Nicola Sturgeon speaks out about Dominic Cummings | The Scotsman

When Pennington suggests that the reasons for the differences in the Cummings and Sturgeon governments’ policies are political, I’m inclined to agree. I imagine that both governments want to get business up and running as a matter of some urgency…don’t we all? But Mr Cummings is prepared to take greater risks with human life in order to achieve his goal.

Anyway, I’m not sure that Hugh Pennington can be called much of an expert. As I understand it he is long retired from his job as a bacteriologist and now acts as a political pundit for the right/unionist camp.

Oh, and isn’t COVID-19 a VIRUS?

FOR THOSE WHINING ABOUT THE SCOTTISH GOVERNMENT’S CAUTION COMPARED WITH THE ENGLISH GOVERNMENT’S RECKLESSNESS…

HERE ARE SOME FIGURES I SAW TODAY ON TWITTER

corona

Of course, comparisons based on numbers alone are not always totally reliable (and I haven’t verified these numbers with either government).

England has more and bigger centres of population where people are crowded into small spaces, use incredibly overcrowded public transport and have far less chance to be out in fresh air.

But despite that, approximately 10 times the population could realistically be expected to give figures somewhere in the region of: 200 daily new cases (not 1300); 50 admissions (not 330) and 35 deaths (not 130).

However, England announced today that in a couple of weeks it will lift yet more of its restriction, open more businesses and reduce the sensible social distance required by 50%.

Scots Tory leader Jackson Carlaw backs PM and refuses to say what ...

Needless to say the poor man’s Mark François, Jackson Carlaw, drones on about getting kids back to school, at the same time as Dave pointed out on the last post that several schools in Leeds have had to be closed down again and deep cleaned because of virus cases reported there.

General election: Farage tells Johnson to 'drop the deal' or face ...

 

This hasn’t gone away. If we rush at it we could undo all the gains from the pain we have had to endure and spit at all the incredibly hard work from so many people, that has gone on to get us here.

Patience.

APOSTROPHE CATASTROPHE

(It’s not really a catastrophe, but I couldn’t resist.)

Let’s be honest, we all make mistakes when we are typing, even Munguin, and my tweets on the phone or iPad are particularly error-ridden.

The honourable lady, the member for Beaconsfield has, however, managed her tweet perfectly, even if it is rather patronisingly punctuated by emojis. (Hint: most of her constituents will probably be able to decipher “give me a call” without the old fashioned phone image!)

apostrphe

What is a little less excusable, is the errant apostrophe and misspelling in the advertisement for her campaign. OK, there is an “e” missing, but it’s certainly not normal practice to replace missing “e”s with apostrophes.

What is inexcusable, is that her government in the House of Commons has treated some real heroes of COVID-19 with utter contempt. I’m talking about student nurses.

Apparently, in England, they can no longer afford to pay them to work on wards, as they arranged, presumably because they have to find the money for the app that doesn’t, and was never going to, work… oh, and a respray for Boris’s plane.

Priorities!
