So do I think that Boris and his Government got it wrong around the start of the
lockdown in late March? Of course I do. And if our Ministers were supposedly
being guided by Science, then why didn't they advise Boris to take stricter measures
on our border controls, forcing quarantine restrictions on incoming arrivals from
Asia and Europe.
It is sad to see a minority of people getting drunk on Covid-19 denial. They seem
determined to carry out their Summer like any normal year.
I'm no killjoy but I can't even understand why people want to go away on
holidays during a global pandemic.
I was watching the live St Ives Harbour webcam from down in Cornwall, and barely
any of the visitors down there walking about were wearing masks.
It's as though they have left their homes from London and the Counties to escape
the pandemic. They're all in holiday mode so to them there is no pandemic.
And it's frightening the residents of St Ives who are now too frightened to go
to the shops for food, even banning their children from the small narrow streets
and the Harbour front. ( full story below ).
CORNWALL HAS BECOME LIKE BENIDORM ON STEROIDS
CORNISH RESIDENTS TOO FRIGHTENED TO GO OUT.
Apparently Government Ministers are now faced with a new dillemna. Do they
go ahead and re-open Schools in September for the start of the new academic
year, or do they close down the Pubs and Bars instead.
Well no one is talking about it just yet, but with our Summer moving on,
we'll soon be heading into our first Covid Christmas!
And as I write this we just heard that Aberdeen in Scotland has gone
back in to full lockdown.

I couldn't resist posting up more images of the gorgeous Ralph Woods from
Of course we don't see so much of Ralphie online these days. He's clearly
moved on to different directions in his life.
And with Ralph now at 34 and heading for that stretch of years approaching 40
I can only imagine how much hotter he must be looking these days.
