Seriously, the people of thE United Kingdom are not in the least unique. Every nation has those who will pull together in a crisis and do good stuff, and they equally have people like the hotel above, or people who buy up all the paracetamol, or toilet rolls who will cut each others’ throats if they see a quick buck in it for themselves.
There are even some who think that they are being stoically British by saying that following the medical advice and staying as isolated as possible is just giving in to it.
Anyway, I suppose they thought that it would be a good idea to make it look like they gave a toss at Buckingham Palace. So they wheeled William out. (Incidentally, he might like to remember that he is a prince of a lot of other countries that aren’t the United Kingdom, and that they might, in Canada or New Zealand, for example, take exception to the fact that he singled out the UK for this unique behaviour.
Honestly royals, you can talk down to us about disasters when we see you queuing for toilet rolls or paracetamol.
And then, there are the un-unique French… eh, what would you do with them? Hot blooded Latins, queuing in an orderly fashion, taking sensible distance precautions, not panic buying… Enough to go round.
If only they would behave sensibly like hardworking uniquely decent Brits…
