And so for the results of my second covid test in four days. This is all so utterly pointless. I was resident for seven weeks in remote parts of Greece where the covid rate is way way lower than it is here in Wales. I have had the disease so been vaccinated by God. I have been double jabbed thanks to Pfizer. And I had a test in Greece on Saturday morning which turned out negative.
In Greece the Government stops profiteering by capping the charges for a test at 50 Euro, call it £42 quid. But Back in Wales the socialist control-freak Government of mad Mark Drakeford will not let me take a day two test in the private sector where I might pay as little as fifty quid. I am forced to book a test through it and pay £88.
The puritan Drakeford says openly that he does not want us going abroad. Why? I was holidaying in a place with far fewer cases than Wrexham. How on earth does Drakeford think that I am putting myself or others at risk in doing so? Of course he does not, he just wants to “soak the rich”, those bastards who have worked hard enough to afford a holiday in somewhere more exotic than the Gower peninsular and its icy seas.
I was so hacked off with those whole exercise in pointlessness than I seriously considered sticking the swab up the nose of my cat Quincey and sending that back. Is Quincey likely to test positive? I doubt it but then again what are the odds on a man who is double jabbed with a booster from God who has passed a test on Saturday having been in a region with almost no cases for 6 weeks and who passed a test on Saturday, testing positive on Wednesday?
And all to see if I might have a plague where the survival rate is 99.98%. This is a costly exercise in utter futility.
