Our PM is in intensive care and already the government stand-ins are ‘thinking about’ lifting the UK lockdown in June.
Are they f***ing mad?
The Money Men have finally cottoned on that all the promises of furlough payments, even though deferred for three months, will be expected to be fulfilled at the end of June, early July, and have no idea where they are going to get the money from.
They can’t demand reimbursement from COVID-19 and they can’t tax it. However, IMO, they believe that if they open up the country, people will go back to work and………….. oh yeah, will be earning so there will be no need to pay them (oh, the joint governmental relief and the spare toilet rolls can go back in the cupboard.)
The panic buying will start again as everyone buys everything they’ve so missed out on or had to restrict and holiday resorts like ours will be flooded with people coming from heaven knows where with heaven knows what.
In their means to recoup the coffers, I see more changes to the benefits system, and it would not surprise me in the least if they decided to move the pension age for our age group back another couple of years.
Honestly, if the virus doesn’t get you, the bloody government will as they are trying to kill us all or starve some of us to death by perhaps denying us our rights in our old age.
