I used to write quite a bit about politics, but I have really given up.
- Boris Johnson seems to be well ahead in the polls and the Tory party
are riding high. The fight against covid 19 is currently going well in
People have short memories. In the first wave up until
1st August England had over 35,000 deaths. The UK government prevaricated
and dithered and gaped as the pandemic got out of control in Italy and
Spain. They ignored the practices in other countries like South Korea
and New Zealand who managed the crisis well.
Then the second wave
and third wave arrived pushing England's death toll to over 112,000. The
attitude among many voters seems to be "Well, no-one could have done any
Well some did. At one point England had the
highest deaths per head of population in the world. We are doing better
now, thanks to the scientists doing a superb job producing the vaccines,
and Johnson is taking the credit. So by rank incompetence he has allowed
around 100,000 deaths in the UK but he is still riding high in the poles
- Nicola Sturgeon is also super popular in Scotland as she has conned
the Scots into thinking there is going to be another referendum followed
by independence. She and her husband, Peter Murrell, CEO of the SNP have
no intention of making Scotland independent. It is the carrot of
independence which keeps them in power and if the donkey finally gets
the carrot, they would have to compete on an equal footing with other
parties. To hang on to power she has tried to frame and jail an
innocent man , Alex Salmond, who is the biggest threat to the Union.
But she has just won an election and is safe for another five years
- Joe Biden is now allowing Americans to stop social distancing and
remove masks. Deaths per million from covid in the USA are around 10
times than in the UK.
- The new leader of the DUP in Northern Ireland is Edwin Poots.
He does not believe in evolution and thinks the Earth is only six
thousand years old.
So with the idiots, liars, double dealers and crooks in charge I have
given up on politics. I'll stick with my hobbies as shown on this site and
hopefully get back into performing.
