Mad, totally mad

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.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I utterly agree with you Di. Sad to say. I understand your fury.m and I relate to where you say about us starving to death, and if the virus doesnt kill us the govt will. Sometimes it feels so hopeless doesnt it.

    Sounds like theyโ€™re reading the Trump playbook. It would be an unmitigated disaster and I think there would be a global revolution against it.

  6. Same over here. Every time our “leader” has a meeting with business men, he says “We’ve got to open business!” Sadly we are just around peaking so that’s a bit premature. Projecting dates is silly. Let’s see where we are in 2 weeks. Last time he projected Easter. Well, that didn’t work for him!

    Why is it that most of the governments are proving themselves totally incapable of handling this situation ?

    • It’s uncharted territory and basically no-one has a clue how to deal with it, Common sense is lacking in the majority of cases IMO because everyone is afraid of losing money

      • Sadje says:

        That is the case but they are supposed to be better as we put them in charge of our affairs.

      • Have to confess I didn’t vote for the lot that’s in, nor the opposition as I don’t trust any of them. It’s not just here though, we don’t seem to have ‘leaders’ anymore, just spoilt brats having a shouting match on TV and getting nowhere. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

      • Sadje says:

        Absolutely right.

    Jez Louise, although we elect out wonderful government officials the gene pool in which we have to cg[house from really is no choice. Then, once their in they all become like the borg and stop their independent thinking which at times is due to money magically appearing to make their decision
