The statistics in Arizona are terrifying and yet, these dafties are out protesting about lockdown… and not wearing masks.
I know masks are vaguely uncomfortable (I’ve been wearing them since early on, but, you know, it’s not that terribly long ago that we were hearing from Brexiteers that the Blitz Spirit was still with Britain and the great British people (albeit from people who had not actually lived through the blitz).
Our parents and grandparents had to carry masks wherever they went, for the best part of the war years. Kids went out to play with them; they went to school with them; they took them with them to the bomb shelters. Adults had them with them all the time, at work, at play. And of course, they also had to go without food and any kind of luxury (unless they were up the top)… and there was no foreign travel, unless you were being shipped out to Africa, the Near or Middle East or Burma, which wasn’t much of a holiday!
But it is true that they got through it.
The idiots who won’t wear masks for 15 minutes as they go round the supermarket because they are a bit uncomfortable*, wouldn’t have lasted a day in the Blitz.
I can’t wait to see how they manage with what’s going to happen in January when we leave the EU, and find ourselves in utter chaos because nothing is ready.
Whiney wee gits… yes, you Michael Gove.
So, there is the result of John Hopkins research. One of the top universities in the world.
I suppose it’s a hard choice to make… On the one hand John Hopkins University with its banks of scientists, on the other hand, Michael Gove with second class honours in English from Oxford.
*I was reminded by Panda Paws the other day, that not everyone can wear a mask for health and I absolutely understand and appreciate the truth of that.
