The crocodiles come later
As if by magic, more of our freedom vanishes by the day. Check out the latest from Britain.
There, the Deputy Chief Medical Officer sez King Virus “will never be eradicated” and people may have to wear face masks and observe “social distancing” (oh, please) “for many years” (https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/13367632/brits-masks-covid-years/). See how they keep moving the goalposts? Now it’s “years.”
When Prime Minister Boris Johnson asked him, the Expert clarified that “for many years” might possibly not really mean “forever.” Not actually forever. Forever comes later.
Meanwhile they’re re-opening the schools but segregating the pupils into “bubbles”–can we give out a prize for that euphemism?–so they can all wear masks and yatta-yatta, but the whole “bubble” gets sent home if two or more kids in it show signs of catching COVID.
Oh! And get this. If your child is absent from the almighty School and you didn’t first say “May I?”, they’re going to fine you. Ah, well–at least they don’t toss you into a pool full of starving crocodiles. Yet. The crocs come later.
