I recently posted my thoughts on the comparison between the UK handling of a COVID-19 lockdown with that of Spain’s.

This blog’s Spanish correspondent – my sister, who is currently living over there – has told me that during the last week or so, the lockdown rules have been relaxed.

You’ll never guess what those lucky Spaniards can do now…

If you have a child or a dog, you may now take it out for a walk! Otherwise, you must continue to remain locked up at home – unless you need visit the local supermercado. This is allowed… once a week.

The UK have been a lot stricter…

It has banned sunbathing! I know. That shocked me too. It is just like living in Nazi Germany.

Sunbathing is something our Mediterranean pals reminisce about, like a 95 year old trying to remember the Blitz.

No wonder we as a nation are suffering so much with this virus.

Boris Johnson has apparently said that the country has reached its peak.

This “reached its peak” thing has confused me. I have come to the conclusion that either I am being incredibly thick, by not understanding how this has been calculated; or Boris is being incredibly thick, for assuming this is as bad as things are going to get.

Either way, I find it totally irresponsible for someone in such power to make such a statement. He may as well have told us all to vaccinate ourselves, by drinking a bottle of bleach.

There will be millions of people who will take it as an invitation to break lockdown (if they aren’t doing so already) and socialise with friends – all while listening to Things Can Only Get Better by D:Ream at full volume.

Some good news! Where the UK fails in implementing and enforcing a safe, sensible lockdown, it makes up for in novelty charity records.

I bet Spain don’t have a song involving a singing lump of starch.

Seriously, this a great song and raises money for an excellent cause. So buy it. It’s cheaper than a bag of chips.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
