    Or a William of Orange, not a William of Woke
    – Baron of Carrickfergus “No battles, they’d increase climate change”

    Poetry Corner – IF , Rudyard Kipling

    Sincere apologies to Kipling. How sad he would have been to see a British Prime Minister stoop so low.

    IF you can keep your job when all about you
    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
    If you can trust yourself when many doubt you,
    And despise their doubting too;
    If you can’t think – and hold in sway to experts;
    Or being briefed accepting every lie,
    With sixty seconds’ worth of sound bites run,
    To blunder on and on and on and on.

    If you can deal in lies and spin deceiving
    And treat those two impostors with no shame;
    If you can’t bear to hear a truthful token
    And heed the knaves who’ve made a trap for fools,
    Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
    And held ensnared by sycophants and fools:
    If men don’t count, and bridal dreams lie broken,
    Yours is the Earth and one day you’ll be in it,
    And – which is more – you are no man my son


  2. “IF you can keep your job when all about you
    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,”

    People like Johnson and Hancock are shameless in not resigning their jobs which makes me think they care more about their political careers than anything else. Nobody would expect them to make no mistakes, but let’s look at the facts:

    A pandemic was considered to a major national security threat
    The probability of a pandemic is always 100% – the only question is when and what form it takes
    The NHS didn’t have infection hospitals in preparation for a pandemic
    The NHS didn’t have sufficient stockpiles of ventilators
    The NHS has a low number of ICU beds (and total beds) per capita

    These faults lie at the door of the PM and health secretary in power now and in previous governments. They could have been better prepared but weren’t.

  3. Pcar: “MP’s receive £3,360 pay rise…”

    The same MPs who voted for coronavirus laws which gave the govt the power to effectively rule by decree. The whole lot of them are shameless.
