New Covid lockdown won’t make a difference because Johnson won’t CLOSE THE SCHOOLS!

“Perfectly safe”: this photo was taken on a school staircase after Boris Johnson ruled that it was “perfectly safe” for children to go back there in September – no social distancing, no PPE… not safe at all.

Is everybody happy to be back in lockdown – or at least, in more serious Covid-19 related restrictions – thanks to Tory incompetence, yet again?

And are you all happy that the new restrictions announced by Boris Johnson and his government won’t make a scrap of difference because he refuses, point-blank, to stop the most common cause of Covid-19 infections?

What I mean is when the latest restrictions are relaxed, we’ll all be as vulnerable to Covid infection as before, because Johnson won’t close the schools.

Yes, they do indeed know this:

It is obvious – and has been since long before Johnson announced that schools would be reopened for the autumn term in September – that schools should stay closed for the duration. And we all know that Johnson triggered the huge autumn rise in infections because of this simple omission from his plans.

Aaron Bastani’s comment that both main political parties must take responsibility, because they both chased headlines and tried to court public approval rather than doing the right thing, is correct:

But ultimate responsibility lies with the government of the day:

Trouble is, Johnson’s resignation won’t change anything because his Tory government will go on – and will continue risking the lives of thousands of people – with their dishonest policies.

Sadly, Marcus Chown’s hope is forlorn.

After more than a year of Covid-19 lies, the Tories can’t go back to the facts because then they would have to provide recompense for all the suffering and death that they deliberately caused.

    New information on the role of children in the spread of Covid-19 is emerging. This is quite a detailed article but well worth taking the time to read in full.
    The narrative is changing, when will our leaders catch up.

    Reevaluating Children’s Role in the Pandemic
    A large study from Austria shows that SARS-CoV-2 infects just as many schoolchildren as it does teachers. Other surveys indicate that while young children may show no symptoms, they are quite efficient at spreading the virus.

    Covid would no longer be the “gift that just keeps giving” if schools stayed closed and the virus subsided.
    The longer the masses are scared, confused and blamed for the problem, the longer Tories and their buddies keep making a fortune.

    Fascist dictator Dick johnson should resign and give his job to New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Arden because she would sack all the crooked fascist tory ministers and she would eradicate the coronavirus!

    Prime Minister Arden has successfully eradicated the coronavirus and she has announced that because New Zealand has now so many vaccine doses available they are donating them FREE to neighboring countries!!

    ‘New Zealand locked down on 25 March; two days after the UK. But as BBC News reported, a week earlier Ardern made everyone coming into the country self-isolate for 14 days. It also completely closed its borders. And as BBC News said, she put “health before the economy”, and that New Zealand’s:

    relative success – it has among the lowest cases per capita in the world – has mainly been attributed to the clarity of the message coming from the government.’

    Putting the country’s health before fascist tory greed is reason why Prime Minister Arden was successful in eradicating this disease! Meanwhile back in little england dick johnson doesn’t care – there’s so much more money to be made before he bothers to even consider closing schools.

    Not rocket science that schools and universities are responsible for spreading the coronavirus! But hey dick johnson and his crooked criminal fascist tory cronies don’t care – they’ve increased their wealth and that’s all that matters!
