Alleged Prime Minister Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson finally climbed down off the fence and made a decision: face coverings would be compulsory in shops from July 24th. This would help reduce transmission of the Coronavirus. Most understood this and moved to comply, but, inevitably, there were those who saw the move as another opportunity to score More And Bigger Attention Grabbing Benefits For Themselves Personally Now.she has told readers not yet asleep “Compulsory face masks are proof the British bulldog has become the scaredy-cat of Europe”.
So desperate is the Tel, in fact, that Ms Pearson’s latest rant has been classified “Premium”. Sadly, however, she has managed to miss the fact that other European countries have already made face coverings compulsory. And as Steve Garelick has asked, “why does the Telegraph care about Europe [when] they have just spent the last few years begging the Country to leave the EU”. Indeed. But on to that column.
This is bullshit. Face coverings are now a fixture of hairdressers. Including here in Crewe. Along with disposable gowns which are binned in front of the customer. But, having set her fictional scene, Ms Pearson then goes for The Full Dishonesty.
Have another go: “data released on Monday showed that Wales and Scotland saw no Covid deaths in the past 24 hours while England recorded just 11, 10 of them from previous days: one death from that wicked Covid in almost the entire United Kingdom”. Yesterday’s data records “Number of additional deaths on Tuesday 14 July 2020 … 138”.
Meanwhile, ignore idiots who rant in the Telegraph. I’ll just leave that one there.
