Is the government trying to kill off older people

Now the government, driven on by Malthusian concepts like ' let the bodies pile high' on the alta of alt right MPs demands for their wealth streams to have priority over the public's health and seniors lives.

So we can learn to live with Covid can we, we'll not the 200 people who died this mid week in January. Why does the govt want to not just reduce self isolation to 5 days, but scrap it all together, why are masks not still compulsory in indoor public space, why do children go to school unmasked, why is testing going to cost, why is there no financial compensation for those with covid and staying at home?

Because the Tory /Ukip Tory MPs and the reactionary entitled columnists in the billionaire media don't care about the health of the nation just their money.

The argument is it is just like flu is not only factually incorrect with the number of cases, the numbers in hospital and ICUs but deaths run between 1000 and 200 a week. In 2019 the numbers dying from flue and pneumonia were 26 thousand, so 500 a week.

Top off the cut to poor seniors income with the £20 Universal Credit cut, a rise in NI and energy and food costs and for the coup de gras 3nd the triple lock when inflation sores and you can see how poorer pensioners ( more than half subsist on less than £12 grand a year) face a hard, brutal life reducing future from a government that has taken older people for granted for too
