    ”I wanna come to Wales.”


    ”Well you can’t.”


    ”What do you mean I can’t? Boris said I could!”






    Brother in law was telling me cruise ship bookings have gone through the roof the last few days - who the fuck would think in the middle of a virus pandemic 'tell you what, a nice cruise would be good, get myself trapped on a boat with hundreds of other people and their germs, nothing bad could happen there I haven't seen anything on the news like".

    It is weird how the wet markets and laboratories are in the same region.  No conspiracy just weird.

    Yeah the catastrophic highly contagious virus is nothing to do with the virus lab, it's the local food market. Everyone will believe that, right?


    Saying that, worse has probably come out of St John's...

    I was out on my bike yesterday. On the way home I had to call into two different work sites. The route took me up church and Bold Street. Way more people about than usual. There was even a couple of barbers open. 

    What? Where?? Asking for a ....friend....

    How are places like the townships in South Africa and areas of densely populated India etc, getting on ?  There were some reports a few weeks ago that the virus would ravage them but not heard anything since. Did the virus not just have the effect the reports said or i it being unreported ?

    There was a feature on BBC Newsnight last week about South Africa - SA and the UK were in similar trajectories until something like the 26th March. They then acted very quickly on the lockdown, had army on the streets, banned sale of alcohol, and have an existing "army" of 30,00 (iirc) community health volunteers doing loads of testing. 


    One of the chief SA health fellas didn't understand how the UK had got it so wrong.

    Was taking a while back about how when I was a kid in the 80s a lot of veterans would have still been in the workforce, you'd have had bus drivers and stuff who were at D Day. It's mad that.

    When I was growing up (80s) there were tangible things related to the War still around - people (obviously), bomb sites/wrecks, gear (we had WW2 stuff in our loft - gas mask, ration tins). But we're now so far away I'm sure to people younger than me it literally seems like ancient history. 


    I don't really know what point I'm making here. I guess back then the war was a realthing and people still felt it. Seems now a lot of people use it as (imaginary) point scoring and jingoism.
