What the dickens is going on? Even Boris Johnson’s sibling isn’t playing by his rules any more, staying overnight at her London residence and enjoying a bit of tennis, and it appears that radio hostess Rachel is attracting more contention for the embattled Prime Minister, dividing her time between her family farm and the metropolis.
She has made no secret of the fact that she’s isolating in Somerset, with essential journeys to her job in London as a presenter on LBC, yet she hasn’t mentioned that her work journeys have involved overnight stays at her Notting Hill home.
Rachel has unquestionably played it to her advantage, fraternising with friends and savouring the sunshine despite her brother’s guidelines putting second homes well beyond reach during the lockdown, as well as banning movement between two homes.
And the apparent double fault in the wake of the national wrath over Dominic Cumming doesn’t look great for anyone, and the narrative Boris Johnson is attempting to skirt right now is of one rule for the elite and another for the rest of us.
First, his sidekick Dominic Cummings and now his sister has been caught with their pants down, twisting the rules, if not breaking them, and after her show, Rachel retired to her West London home where her two sons also stay, and then on Saturday, following a quick knock up with her buddies and a canine walk, she took the train to Somerset.
But according to a spokesperson for the radio host, in line with the preponderance of broadcasters, she’s allowed keyworker standing, and that the programme ends at 7 pm and that it’s a four-hour journey back, so she sometimes stays over, and that in line with guidance, she makes a collective endeavour to stay alert at all times.
It comes after the Prime Minister’s top aide Dominic Cummings rode 260 miles to Durham after suffering coronavirus symptoms. The former Vote Leave boss also made a 30 mile trip to nearby Barnard Castle to examine his eyesight after recuperating from the virus.
He held onto his job by the skin of his teeth but was made to give a humble press conference to the country, and Durham Police ruled his Barnard Castle journey may have been a minor infringement of the lockdown regulations, but it also seems to be various rules for different players.
So, Rachel has now breached the rules. What next Boris, family snaps with the new baby?
And I’m sure that technically it would be possible for Rachel to work from home, but then who listens anyway and is anything she has to say worthwhile?
Boris Johnson said that we have to stay alert and save lives, but it doesn’t appear to be working Boris, even your sister isn’t listening anymore, and opening schools, more shops and pubs soon, there is no lockdown and there never was one, it’s a shambles and no one listens to Boris Johnson anymore since Dominic Cummings bent the rules, it’s a sham and a second wave will certainly happen and soon.
And how speedily we move on from ‘we’re all in this together, to some animals are more equal than others’.
But it now appears that everything is open to interpretation, particularly for loving families and who don’t know what tomorrows convoluted message for the masses is going to be.
I sure don’t, nor do I care anymore because I, like many others are simply trying to keep it together, but that doesn’t mean we should break the rules because Dominic Cummings did, and more to the point, made it an excuse.
He violated the rules and the media had a field day with him, and then we get thousands of fools protesting, every person infringing lockdown rules, and all those people should be punished the same way that Dominic Cummings should, but then we shouldn’t be shocked by MP’s and Boris Johnson’s sister breaking the lockdown rules because they all bred from the same gene pool.
Boris Johnson has started using the expression ‘let’s move on’ to bring to an end problematic cankers he has no idea how to fix.
Dominic Cummings lies through his teeth and has this complete disregard for lockdown rules, and Boris Johnson failed to achieve lockdown a lot earlier than he should have, whilst people in care homes have been put there with a heard of death lottery.
We have the second-highest coronavirus death rate in the world, but it’s okay, let’s just all move on. The only way we’re going to move on is when Dominic Cummings is fired and they all move on and get the hell out of Westminster, but then you can’t fire someone who doesn’t do anything useful, that includes Boris Johnson.
The problem is that there has been so much confusion, dishonesty and deception and now the British people are going to snub Boris Johnson because our government are leaderless, and Boris Johnson and Dominic Cummings have shown their ineptitude too many times and now they’re regarded as irrelevant.
Yet there appears to be a daily sermon that’s being dished out by bigots like Matt Hancock, Jenrick, Gove and Boris Johnson, but it’s now being disregarded because all the government are doing now is extracting the urine.
And let’s face it, how can the people be expected to respect Boris Johnson’s decisions when his chief aide and his sister take little notice? And there appear to be no rules for this lot, ‘Oh, I say, anyone for tennis?’
I’m now questioning if anyone around Boris Johnson is following the rules because supposedly only us commoners have to follow the rules, and what a magnificent example our government are setting to the rest of the nation, no wonder some people are already confused and think lockdown is ending soon.
The English for centuries has allowed themselves through royalty, church leaders and politicians to be bullied through smart eloquence, with land, people, assets and livelihoods all stripped away and to rub insult to injury, the commoners have to bow, scrape and doff the cap, and the thing is, it’s still going on today.
But then we sit back and allow them to do it to us, but then again it’s not what you know, it’s who you know in government and Boris Johnson is the boss, and like it or not you will do as you’re told because that’s just the way it is.
And when all said and done, this government does nothing for the people, it’s all about them, and to them, the people are simply disposable objects to be used in their get rich plans, but I do wonder what sort of people we’re becoming and let’s be clear, the social class divide is getting bigger with the attitude of certain Tories and make no mistake they don’t like the working class because it’s against their ideas and beliefs.
So, don’t think that this Tory government is doing this to protect us all, we’re just being carefully misled by ill-advised loyalty, and their elitist, public school Eton upbringing has cultivated that dogma and power corrupts, and if they don’t want to follow the rules, that’s their problem, but then that’s private education for you.
The elite clearly can’t read and certainly don’t listen – how unfortunate for their parents who squandered a packet on their education, and the lockdown rules seem not to apply if you’re rich and have more than one home.
But it’s sickening when we the common people can’t see their family’s or bury their dead, yet these fools can do what they want and it does appear like we’re being repressed by our government, and it also seems that the media is no longer a newspaper but a political platform.
And the government are overcompensated dishonest reprobates and Boris Johnson is a bell end in reverse, but it’s a shame we have all these rule-breakers – anyhow, I’m off to a big BBQ, and I’m going to have a glorious day, and as for getting ill, I’ve probably got more chance of getting food poisoning from my son’s cooking than the virus!
