When will this shit end?

Recommended Posts

Yeah it’s when you hear about certain parts of Florida and the likes that haven’t bothered doing anything despite surely seeing what is coming that makes you worry for them. Plus the fact Trump is allocating resources to States he needs for re-election and at the end I think it will look grim for them sadly

Although you can’t obviously brand the whole country the same but didn’t the ski resort where the virus initially broke out in Italy cover it up for the first few weeks because they didn’t want people to cancel going there? 

That was Ischgl in Austria, not Italy.

Seems most leaders are doing well in terms of popularity during this crisis...I guess people just want to be loyal and believe they are being led by intelligent people who know what they're doing.

I wonder what they'll think in 6 months?

In 6 months they'll be thinking the same. In 12 they'll be saying thanks to the NHS but we know all those deaths weren't your fault you just weren't good enough and now it's time for the private companies to provide effective healthcare. All of those future public opinions courtesy of the media.....

I'm hoping not. In the past when the country has faced challenges like the two World Wars the British people have demanded a more equitable society. The NHS being just the most tangible benefit. People are not stupid, we know who is to blame. Johnson will pay at the ballot box for his lying, bumbling and incompetence.

Germany are around 4 or 5 days behind us. We look like on same path as Italy , possibly more spread out geographically. USA looks a shitfest and they still haven’t locked down. 
 

Only at the end can this all be assessed as to who done “best” , who was most truthful and a plan for next time firmed up. I’m just keeping my head down and following the advice. 

I do wonder if it might be more useful to break USA down into individual states. They have a huge population and different policies per state with regards to lockdown. Despite their many failings, it's not surprising they have more cases than any country in Europe - those are all split up individually.

Unfortunately I'm not sure this is the case. He was shown to have lied and bumbled his was through things many times before the last GE and he still won.

Yes, but his lying, bumbling incompetence hadn't killed anyone at that time.

This is costing us loved ones. In the last few days I have heard of three local deaths, friends of friends sort of thing and still kind of distant. I have a horrible feeling that there are very few of us that will not be directly effected by this before it is over. I hope I'm wrong, I'd rather have a decade of Johnson than lose a single life.

If that does happen we will find a changed world. I pray that it changes to be fairer.

Peace and love everyone.

His approval rating has gone up throughout hasn't it?

no, people are really stupid, you let brexit happen. And he still didnt get voted out in december. Unless theres a death toll the size of the u.s Is going to have,  johnson wont get the boot. And yeah, over here that other guy is running things into the ground and he easily wont get out of this when elections happen come november.

It is better to do that cause thats how we have it broken down and such. If you want to see projections and such per state and when peak will be reached, check this. Already going to see the numbers compound even more as we have double in cases in 5 days now to get to 200k. Plus states that are doing everything they can to let their base ( religious folk ) have their freedoms will make it worse. Florida and Texas issues a soft lockdown but are allowing church services to remain an “essential activity”. And they can have gatherings over the limits imposed if they choose. We all saw what happened in korea when a church was allowed to have services.

I'd be amazed. With social media and the resulting behavioural science nd manipulation available from it, the Tories are in power forever now. The free market is now the leader of this country and there's nothing we can do about it.

Getting quite tedious this whole lock down thing. Haven't seen anyone I know (excluding skype) in 2 weeks and a day with no end in sight!!

Hoping the gyms open sooner rather that later

The state is most definitely leader of the country at the moment.

No he won’t. He got away with so much at the General Election, essentially lying to the public and also the monarchy. The public didn’t care that BJ was lying to them, they were far to upset that Labour wanted to offer free broadband to worry about the truth. So no, BJ and the Tories won’t pay for this they’ll find someone else to blame and the public will happily believe the lies.

Do you reckon they’ll roll over my ticket for next year?
