27th July 2020 Do we learn our lessons? Day 126 in the UK

POST LOCKDOWN Do we learn our lessons? Day 126

AND do you recognize this?

AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE I WILL STAY AT HOME, KEEP THE 2m RULE AND WEAR A FACE

Staying at home! – STILL Protecting the NHS – STILL saving lives

I AM STILL Keeping safe

So with the government's decision to make everyone
coming from Spain do a compulsory 2 week quarantine
indicate that our government has learnt its lesson about
acting quickly?

Well 'one swallow doesn't make a summer' and the
fundamental issues with the government's approach of
mitigation rather than suppression will continue to haunt
us a we continue to see new cases and deaths. unlike
New Zealand and Taiwan we have turned the pandemic
into a chronic problem long term problem having already
had an acute one with one of the highest rates of infection
and death in world. If we had followed a more progressive
approach we might be like NZ and Taiwan now, coming
out the other side, So the government continues to
mismanage the situation.

A god recap of that early talk of 'herd immunity' mitigation
verses suppression,can be found on the BBC,
Coronavirus: Did 'herd immunity' change
the course of the outbreak'.

I think Johnson and Co. are libertines, and I am not
confusing this with libertarians, who do not want to
do anything unless forced into it by bad press, and the
likely loss of votes when it becomes clear they really do
not care about you. That is why I think he has changed tone
recently about mistakes made, he is trying to cover himself.

It is like a bad dream we are not allowed to wake up from. I
want to change our leadership but there is no way to do it.
There is no one who can step in and stop the nonsense.

Lessons learnt? No, they are not capable of that kind of self
review and do not have the moral fibre to do the right
thing and go.

Madness, madness, all is madness.

Other matters today:

  1. The Foundations of Yoga‘. ‘Revolved Side Angle Pose’. Eventually got myself untangled from this!
  2. Rain, rain, rain. Glad we did the garden yesterday, not that there is not more to be done.
  3. Going back 4 years now for the wedding nearest today’s date which was at Northop Hall where I was pleased to photograph this lovely couple and their family and friends..
    Everyone seemed to have confetti for this shot. I always take two lots of the confetti moment, one of them looking towards me and another with them kissing as in this case. Sometimes I get them to walk between two rows of people walking with them as they go past different guests. A lovely Northop Hall wedding.
    Great gardens and parkland for some romantic away from the reception photographs.
    Inside the Hall the starway offers some more opportunities for romantic images.
    And aways a close up of the bride.
    And the bride with her best friend and made of honour.
    Of course before everything got going the groom had a picture with a friend doing the wedding driving, looking very relaxed and enjoying each others company!
  4. Write this blog

Spent all day with lovely Oona, she is doing a virtual harp technique ‘camp’ course.
