This is a - slight - side topic to the one started by the learned PG.
Please bear with me - but I am depressed at today’s world.
I know these two items are from the DM (no comments please) - but they are FACTS - and have been reported in other newspapers.
And before anyone shouts at me, before making a comment rather reading the articles - do me the courtesy please of reading them - and then tell me why I am wrong in feeling so confused about today’s society.
We have been advised that there are certain groups more vulnerable than others to this — virus.
In the interests of their health they have been advised to take extra precautions; not for anyone else’s sake - but their own. (And just in case, here I’m referring to the Golden Oldies, the 60plus or those younger with health problems - I hope that is clear).
So how is it that a vulnerable group, which has been identified not just in the UK - and has been given special advice for their own benefit -
why does it suddenly become ‘rascist’ to try and protect that vulnerable group ?
And why is it that only a member of that vulnerable community is allowed to point out the facts - without being accused of being rascist.
I truly believe that this PC nonsense, where every little group can turn any fact into a ‘rascist’ attack has gone way, way too far.
There is no longer any reasonable, common-sense, decent conversation to be had any more…
Sorry - I know it’s the UK; but you can’t tell me similar silencing of the facts hasn’t taken place right across europe.
What a stupid, stupid world.
I’m out of step; sometimes I think of that Tony Newley song -
‘Stop the World I wanna Get Off’ - …
