BLITZING THE UNAVOIDABLE SHITMINSTER : THE UNITED KINGDOM has received some much needed advice today from Reality, which stopped by to have a world.
“I see you’re in a crisis about the Coronavirus crisis,” Mr Reality stated, nodding soberly.
We are. Nice of you to stop by. What would you like to tell our audience?
“You’ve such a fetishisation in certain demographics of population and media for WW2. I’m surprised you are taking so long to work out one of the key lessons that the period offers. So far as early crisis management goes.”
“When you’re entering an extended crisis, which is now inevitable due to the poor decisions of the current government, the first thing you need to ensure is new, sound leadership.”
We have a government.
“I didn’t say you didn’t have a government.”
It’s just that they don’t appear sound.
“They don’t, do they.”
So what should we do?
“What did they do in WW2? What did Neville Chamberlain do?”
He found his political support evaporating and he stood down. Winston Churchill took over as prime minister with cross party support.
“What should Boris Johnson do?”
Well, judging only by the Sunday papers he’s hanging Cummings out to dry.
“He should go with him. Then you lot should form a government of national unity, cross party, with a credible prime minister leading it. One with an attention span greater than a gnat’s.”
“If you choose wisely, they’ll know what to do. But I’d start by listening to the WHO.”
Nerr, I’ve gone off them since Daltrey revealed himself as a kipper.
“The World Health Organisation, you wally.”
Roger that. Listen to the World Health Organisation and not Dom.
