On Numbers -1

Some people frightened

World will fall out of bottoms

A tissue of lies


n.b. Looks like the toilet paper manufacturers are on a roll. This fixture in a local supermarket was cleared of toilet paper by the time I passed through.

One woman said to an acquaintance on her mobile phone as she stormed past me, “Good thing you went shopping this morning because everyone has been f..king pr..ks again!”

I thought how interesting it is that “everyone” was implicated by her in the great toilet paper clear out here prior to Lockdown 2. It is not the case that everyone is acting selfishly, but her language indicates a distrust of people in general and reflects a gradual weakening of trust between us all in the UK.

Will this second Lockdown be adhered to as well as the initial Lockdown? Are we now looking for someone to pass responsibility to for our own health onto others? Is Boris Johnson out of his depth? Who voted for this buffoon?

Can we fix a broken country in a crisis when using the ideology of the “free” market, where the rich get richer and the poor get poorer?
