We are having protests here in the UK, like I think in a few other countries. Ours are to do with the 2nd lockdown and to be honest I support alot of the protesters.
Not the guy who turned up as Santa high on something, but the people who haven’t had any help from the government at all, its over 3 million people. Who have received nothing, many have watched the businesses they have built up destroyed, are having to sell their homes, struggling to put food on the table for even the most basic of meals.
I do think Covid is real, I don’t think its just like the flu, I think its much worse. But also I think the damage this government are now doing to the economy is going to kill a lot more people than Covid is going to manage.
We are now expecting the biggest mass unemployment for nearly 40 years, this is not going to be helped by Brexit and the damage that is going to do.
In my opinion its due to the government making decisions based on popularity, not based on any actual science.
People are going to suffer because of the things the government have put in place for years previous to this as well. The benefit system is not fit for purpose and as people are now discovering not enough to live on. Our mental health support was struggling before this and now, will be snowed under.
People are being encouraged to report their friends and neighbours if they are breaking the rules, its not a good time to be in the UK, the government and the media are doing a fine job of pitting the public against each other.
I got called selfish the other day because I dare to have the opinion that this lockdown is complete and total bollocks. I get the first one, when we couldn’t do anything, I wasn’t a massive fan of the schools closing, but got it. I have followed all the rules, no matter how stupid I thought they are, I honestly believe a lot of people are also doing this and yet cases are rising.
I think we should keep social distancing and masks, but let the businesses open and start cracking on with getting the economy going. The government have already said we can see each other at Christmas but we have to be sensible, if they think the public can do it then, then why they don’t think we can do it now.
This lockdown has been a waste of time and done so much damage to people. I hope when history looks back, it judges this government as criminals
