I have noted before that the former babysitter to ex-wife Big Nose, that is to say Welsh First Minister Mark Drakeford, is insane. He has now announced new measures here in Wales to destroy what is left of our hospitality sector and I urge the men in white coats to drag this wretched man away before he cancels Christmas. You may remember that we suffered a “firebreak” lockdown here in Wales between 23 October and 9 November to stop the spread of the virus…
It now seems that Coronavirus cases in Wales are back up to where they were at the end of that firebreak. And they are rising. A logical soul would say that if two lockdowns/firebreaks had failed to stop the spread of a disease, which sees 99.95% of those under 70 survive and where the average victim lives one year past average life expectancy, then a third dose of the same medicine is pointless. That is especially so since the side effects of this medicine are businesses going bust, folks losing their jobs, more deaths from cancer and other diseases and a soaring suicide rate.
But the fuckwit Drakeford is not a logical man for he is clinically insane. Thus, after 6PM this Friday, all cafes, pubs, bars and restaurants will have to close their doors at 6PM every day until at least the 17th December but plausibly much longer. And the same venues will not be allowed to serve alcohol at all because drinking a mug of cocoa offers no Covid risk but having a glass of wine is a super-spreader event.
A pub not allowed to serve booze is like a butcher which cannot sell meat. The odd person may wander in to buy eggs but essentially there is no point opening. And, just in case anyone in Wales wanted to have any fun: cinemas, bingo halls, bowling alleys, soft play centres, casinos, skating rinks, amusement arcades, museums, galleries and heritage sites will also have to close all day.
So what if cases are higher on 17 December with Drakeford’s mad plan having had no effect? Will he introduce other measures to cancel Christmas 1647 style? What if case numbers start to fall but are still high? Will he argue that the medicine is working but that he is therefore going to cease medication? Of course he will follow that illogical step as he has no desire to be seen as the man who stole Christmas.
Mad Mark claims that “the measures we are taking are based on what the UK SAGE group of experts tells us has worked best elsewhere.” Really? Worked best at what? Getting folks to lose their jobs or skip cancer testing? I refer Mad Mark to a case study from Greece.
Lockdowns achieve nothing but misery. Mark Drakeford makes the leaders of the English infidels seem almost clear headed and that is quite an achievement.
At least, living at the Welsh Hovel, I can nip across the border to a boozer 150 yards into England and have a drink as long as I order a substantive meal, the definition of which, apparently, includes 1 Scotch Egg. But if, after I finish my Scotch Egg, I want another glass of wine, that is illegal under Tier 2 English rules although, once again, I could have a cup of cocoa as that is a low risk activity.
