It's Arnhem All Over again!
Field Marshal Model: What can you see? General Ludwig: Nothing. But they're going to try a river assault. Field Marshal Model: It will fail. General Ludwig: Of course. But what do we do if it doesn't? Like field Marshal Model, we can see nothing, despite a river assault approaching but never mind, it will fail. That's Boris 'Bojo' Johnson on tonight's address to the nation. Don't get me wrong, 'getting the economy moving again', should be the ultimate end game but not when
The War On Drugs
"Well, when the president does it, that means that it is not illegal." - Nixon As we take a loop back into the land of SARS Cov-2, I can't help but wonder about today's politicians, is it a problem of age in leadership?

COVID-19, Crime Of The Century
Desperate times call for desperate measures... Yes, I am talking about now. Whether you want to bury your head in the sand or you want to lie down and die, the simple fact remains COVID-19 is in a community near you.
