The Blame Game.

I am one of those people who are loyal to a team to the very end no matter how badly they perform. I have always been an optimist and I think something will eventually turn up.

I am obviously not alone with this loyalty and optimism.  I see every day how popular governments are, despite their dreadful failings. Elections and opinion polls show these failing governments still have the support of huge numbers of voters.

I think we optimists still want to give them the benefit of any doubt, unfortunately this benefit is rarely returned. In fact, we are told that they have followed the science and done everything possible to keep us safe. 

They also tell us it is the fault of people mixing and for not doing as they are told that over 100,000 people have died of Covid.

OK, let us say there is some truth in this wanton mixing and disobedience, would that really cause so many people to lose their lives, is it the 40,000 care home resident’s fault that they died before their time?  Or the dreadful toll of Doctors, nurses and all the other health care workers who didn’t wear the proper PPE?

100,000 people, it’s a number that is hard to grasp, to help you with this, imagine a big jetliner with about 300 people on board crashing and killing everyone………….every single day since the pandemic arrived.

Would you still fly in an aircraft like this?
