+It’s pure coincidence that all this talk of ‘social distancing’ came at the same time as the Alex Salmond trial.
+Today’s other in-vogue words, now made into one are ‘lock down.’ Trump may well have tested negative for Coronavirus, but if he wants to stay that way he should consider putting the White House into lockdown. Now chant after me ‘Lock him up! Lock him up!’
+The streets are eerily quiet after ‘our’ Prime Minister ordered us to stay at home. I kind of assumed his commands would have sparked off another round of panic buying, although I didn’t go to the supermarkets this morning to see for myself the bog rolls flying out the door. A saving grace of the PM’s dictats is that we will be spared the sight of him and his ministers touring hospitals and other crisis stricken places wearing hi-vis jackets and hard hats, pretending to empathise with workers and locals. Although sadly I did see on the news last night a rather ridiculous Health Secretary Hancock helping to unload boxes of face masks off the back of a lorry into a building. A pathetic photo-op if ever there was one, not least since he wasn’t wearing any protective gear himself (I’m assuming the building was a hospital). And the boxes clearly didn’t weigh very much. How many boxes did he shift? More than one?
+Leading on nicely to box sets. First to hit the DVD player is The Thick Of It. The above photo-op could have been lifted entirely from the thought processes at work in the ‘Department of Social Affairs and Citizenship.’ Next up: Yes Minister.
