I saw this online and it amused me.
Our government is still saying people can go to work if they are essential workers. But building workers are going in, so are others who should be off because their employers won’t let them take leave. Our government is confusing the issue.
People need to take it seriously NOW!
As someone said, better six foot apart than six foot under.
Being honest with myself, what’s been happening in the UK has really upset and depressed me. The government has just become strongly right wing Conservative after a general election. People seemed to use it as another Brexit referendum (a vote for the UK to leave the European Union). The world keeps turning, but my country seems to be turning inward on itself. Promises were made but are already apparently being broken, where promises to support workers rights have been withdrawn.
So my depression is not internal but has external causes. If I wasn’t to bothered about what happens to people perhaps I could be blasé about it and just feel happy to celebrate the season. But I can’t help worrying about what’s going to happen in the future. I hope this mood lifts soon.
