Changes Are Afoot

Times they are a changing. The sun is shinning, shops are shutting, concern is growing. Lockdown looms, but the sun is shining and there’s no sign of rain.

Covid-19 will go down in history as a test of Government, NHS and national resolve. Worst of all is the abundance of people who believe they are invincible and the new rules don’t actually apply to them. This is followed by the profiteers. Hedge funds screwing the economy, the private “doctors” making £m’s from selling test kits, the morons who crashed in on dedicated NHS shopping time at supermarkets. The wealthy moving to second homes or renting anywhere but London. And so it goes on, the perverse downside of human nature abounds.

One ominous change is in the skies. The blue sky overhead is generally a crisscross of vapour trails from aircraft. High in the sky at cruising altitudes there is generally 6 or 8 trails visible. Now there are none.

But in the midst of the mayhem there are many encouraging signs of positive human nature, the generosity and inventiveness of many with an altruistic outlook. The NHS dedication in the face of turmoil and danger. History will be kind to them, the morons will inevitably console themselves with the wealth they have stolen.
