Just as long….


So at least another three weeks!   Then it will all be over and we can all go back to the way things were (such is the hope of the President of the United States).  Perhaps it will but more probably it won’t and things will never be quite the same again.  I don’t know and neither does anyone else and please remember that.   Nobody really knows – all people can do, even the best informed (again that should include the President of the United States and if he is he is making a really good stab at hiding the fact), is make decisions based on their experience but really they don’t know what is going to happen. This is why it is called the fog of war. Perhaps the only fact that is certain is that this will not be over until such time as there is a vaccine that works and is readily available which doesn’t seem likely this year but we live in hope.

    Whether you are a member of the ‘Orange Man Bad’ group, the ‘Trump speaks for me’ group, or of a less tribal outlook, Trump is probably feeling harassed because although the Federal Government ‘controls’ the federal finances each state is responsible for its own public health, and states defend their responsibilities.

    Now that particular problem doesn’t apply to us… but you have to wonder if Public Health England isn’t being just a tad bureaucratic by default and we lost some of the advantages of early actions to limit the pandemic.

    In any event we will probably not know for years what *everybody* should have done. Even then there is probably not a ‘one size fits all’ approach that will cater for all demographics.

      For me the most depressing thing about Trump’s approach is that he just doesn’t get the opportunities available to him…he could portray himself as the saviour by being, well more engaged and less himself. However, that is never going to happen but I suspect he will still be reelected as there is a long way between here and November!

      You are write there were no doubt mistakes made by all of the health bodies in the UK. However, I suspect and hope, they were genuine mistakes rather than mistakes driven by dogma and ideology. There are many more twists and turns before this whole thing is behind us and I guess we’ve just abouyt at the end of the beginning rather than what some might wish us to believe.
