what a terrible and sad day for a babyboomer

this day has seen so much hopefulness snuffed out.

I cannot believe that the UK Parliament has passed a law that allows our police ( and God knows who else) to get away with sanctioned torture, rape and murder. Even worse when you look at the detail it is ok if it is aimed at not just real terrorists but those wishing to challenge capitalism or the impact of climate change- anything to defend a bankrupt, corrupt and incompetent system. It reminds me of the final deluded days of the Soviet Union.

Then my grandson is not just imprisoned with other new students paying £900 a year for a combination of dangerous public lectures or virtual learning, with no chance of claiming money back, but is being blamed for a pandemic caused by the government's Malthusian herd immunity driven screw up.

Then I read about the £7300 a day charges by consultants with no medical or health knowledge and a test and trace board headed by the serial incompetent Dido Someone with one, one person with relevant health, medical or knowledge put of 26 useless CEOs, bankers and media manipulators. At a cost of over 12 billion and counting got a failed system refusing to use local and professional knowledge over test and trace whose incompetence is killing our loved ones.

So the govt gives untendered billions to its cronies and maybe even family or investment funds while refusing to pay even basic living money to those who it insists on locking down .

At the same time I now read the govt wants to force the GLA to abandon free transport on London transport for pensioners and school children. What evil scoundrels have been put in charge

For someone who was brought up in a world which however flawed seemed to offer a future, of democracy and equality and a triumph pf science and meritocracy as well as anti fascist beliefs in human rights and justice today has been a nightmare
