This makes me really happy!! Saving lives is more important than opening up nightclubs Do they?😂😂 Theresa May said in parliament on Friday. “ this virus is never going to go away” it will kill 20,000 a year like influenza So he must admit the government has failed yet again Arsonist Firefighter Syndrome : PILE UP the populations in URBAN AREAS to support land & rental SPECULATION, MASS Trade, Tourism, Pharma & INTENSIVE agriculture.. ...it's CRIMINAL (Penal Code-Endanger human life or safety of others) DIRECT DEMOCRACY RETHINK EVERYTHING

Boris 'to delay June 21 reopening until July 19' after surge in Covid casesGovernment officials said they would rather delay 'Freedom Day' than be forced into a u-turn and have to reintroduce restrictions. Lol Heh. 🔥THAT'S going to go down great with the people who think lockdown is a scam.
Must all work in government jobs where pay is guaranteed because where I’m from there is no backing at all. Do they fuck. There will always be a new variant. We have got to live with this thing. Those polls are fake, everyone I've spoken to have had enough. Bollocks That’s complete bollocks The nhs isn't being overwhelmed by covid patients so there is no need to delay ending restrictions. Delaying everytime a 'new variant' appears means they will never end. Learn to live with covid, it's not going anywhere.
'Half of people' You lot make me sick honestly I bet you are delighted
