Yesterday we had a flyer posted through the door by a well meaning neighbour. I understand the sentiment and the intent but I find the irony excruciating.
Come this Friday, for my own sanity, I’ll be desperately avoiding the TV coverage of national gratitude for the sacrifices of WWII and admiration for the great British people of the time. What a contrast to today!! My neighbours having to be coaxed from behind their sofas where they’ve spent the past month cowering from the 24 hour propaganda intravenously fed by the MSM.
I’ll wish them no ill as they stand on their doorsteps in silence, hang their bunting whilst being respectful of each others’ social distance and wave their little union flags singing a few words to We’ll Meet Again downloaded from Google.
But how anyone thinks any of that even begins to redeem us from our cowardly (let alone illogical) response to COVID-19 is quite beyond my comprehension. VE Day comes as a timely reminder as to why we should be proud to be British but in the face of a national crisis we’ve quickly and unquestioningly relinquished freedoms that so many lost their lives defending. Lest we forget.Published in
