Here are a few observations I have made during the past few weeks.
1. Laura “look at me” Koonsberg, BBC’s political correspondent.
An ego bigger than the village I live in. Why use normal words when hyperbole will do instead. Even most of her questions to the politicians are dramatic and sensationalist.
2. Nicola Sturgeon
Blimey, I wouldn’t have been surprised if she would have turned up to her press meetings painted up like Hollywood’s vision of Robert the Bruce. Early on used “ I “ a lot when making announcements. For example, “ Until I feel it’s safe, I won’t change things”.
It certainly felt to me that her decision making was more “ look what I can do different”
Used to respect her as a strong politician. She’s just self centred like all the others...... and that brings me on to all the devolved governments....
3. Stupid that England, Scotland Northern Ireland and particularly Wales have all had differing methods for coping with the virus. Wales only just lifting the 5 mile travelling ban in a country that is predominantly rural seems harsh on the population. A United Kingdom? Not in health that’s for sure.
4. Football is she.ite without crowds.
5. Everyone who uses “ uptick” should have a bolt gun put to their foreheads. A totally annoying fecking way of saying increase. All ticks go up you morons. Talk properly.
6. I get the feeling that the media almost want a resurgence in this virus. I’ve never seen the media be so dramatic. They are always on the worst cases scenario like a ton of bricks. Just seen a news article on Melbourne in Australia about a spike in cases, using phrases like “ could result in another wave”. There were 126 extra cases in a population of nearly 5 million.
