Anybody remember a few weeks back his 'experts' advised something called herd immunity, this was his secret weapon and would see us laugh at the poor old Asians as the wallowed in ever increasing death counts, secret photos showed bodies dead stacked in corridors, then it was the Italians and Spanish, what could we expect from them, funny how things played out then not so good was it. Scraggy head had turned down the ppe order share with the EU, we hadn't any ppe and test kits where still a pipe dream. The supermarkets couldn't cope, the shelves were empty and scraggy head blamed the public, anybody seen a bag of flour, no it wasn't the 'public', it wasn't us buying too much it was the terror of the unknown. Scraggy head has taken people like children to be pushed, shoved, coerced and threatened.
This was at the same time as Hungary was turning into a dictatorship, China was looking up pro democracy activists, in Myanmar nice Mrs An San was, as I warned many years ago, backing her fathers army which she worships and trying to see off the remainder of the minority Muslim population. Distraction from home issues under the cover of war or disaster is a common tactic, the worst bitch in history Thatcher latched on to that. Scraggy head voted against pay increases for nurses, care workers suffered on minimum wages and had to face the ' austerity' cuts - funny I wonder who caused that financial crash, oh the bankers, and how many of them were punished for their misdeeds, given knighthoods by beloved right wing sycophants.
Now there are often different narratives and perspectives, sometimes it is a little chilling being a minority voice, I think we are lucky it isn't Mao Tse Tung, Stalin or Hitler we are up against or perhaps just as scar Trump. Sounds like something Hitler would have suggested getting people to drink disinfectant to cleanse them. With what we have left of democracy in this lunacy today we need debate and a dialogue. When this results in diatribes of f**********ing etc all over the net I call it time to draw the curtains and withdraw, I'm sure transport enthusiasts are only a microcosm of the general population but it shows how bad social media can be, the mobile phone would certainly be something I would un-invent if I could.
Today I went shopping at M&S at Handforth Dean, all very civilised and friendly but no flour. Then I spent time getting the final touched done in the garden and put in more plants we'd this time got at Marks. The rest of the morning flew by and seeking a diversion after the sickening sights on Facebook I did some work on my family tree only later getting on with the editing I'd intended and I'm now well into the Ticket-Boo production on the latter days of British trolleybuses which will run to two volumes. These should both be ready by the end of the weekend. Tomorrow if the weather is suitable I'll be having a session at M6 Junction 19 which is being rebuilt, progress is fast as they can take advantage of the quiet traffic. Another very local target is Middlewich distribution centre traffic.
No I don't stand clapping on the doorstep, we can save that until they pay people sensible salaries for tough jobs. I recoil from anything which smacks of propaganda and always will, I've seen plenty of it around the world. Tonights slide show well lets have some nice shots from that super interesting country Myanmar/Burma, you see I can visit and enjoy the transport and still have my own opinions on regimes.
