One happy family?
+I shall await the Queen’s words this evening with eager anticipation. At her age, she should feel free to at long last break her traditional, constitutional role as platitudoner-in-chief and tell the country (nay, the Commonwealth) what she really thinks, perhaps with a few words for people who are particularly hard pressed to self-isolate, like those living in flood hit homes and tower blocks with fire prone cladding. Holed up in her own tower block, Windsor Castle she’ll know a thing or two about the latter subject. Personally I can’t see how anyone living in any tower block over the next two months is adequately going to cope. If there are parks nearby councils should find ways of allocating time so residents can use them fairly. If we’re in for a long, hot summer social unrest is a real possibility. No country with a lockdown has yet to deal with this pandemic in the summer months.
+So Keir Starmer takes Labour’s reins. I didn’t vote for him, but I am pleased that the result was at least clear and decisive, so there is the prospect of some stability. And anti-Semitism complaints against the Party will drop back down to zero. I am pleased too that Starmer has come out immediately to criticise the government’s mishandling of Coronavirus. I hope he is dusting down his prosecutor’s hat.
