I’d be staying home and minimising social contact at present even if there were NO rules, because it’s obviously the correct course of action in these circumstances. It’s common sense; “oh don’t get near me, you don’t want to catch what I’ve got”, we’ve all said it to each other for decades. But suddenly, when it’s serious enough for the government to say it too (albeit weeks late. Twice.), suddenly it’s cause for suspicion, and there’s no reason to believe it works. Funny, that.
And everyone who says the pandemic’s no problem, well, they’re just lovely, and very clever, and anyone who says it’s a hoax, well just say nothing, and anyone who links to data or describes the common symptoms, well they’re mean and nasty and rude and on a moral crusade.
Well I’m sick of it, and I’m calling it out.
