Tier 3 pantomime
So this week we went into tier 3 of this so-called lockdown. This was after 10 days of going back and forth between Andy Burnham and the Government. Everyone had accepted this was going to happen but yet these two idiots were just arguing how was going to put us in it.
In the end, Boris had had enough and called it a day and you have to accept this would need to happen. But the Government had wanted u to have £22m and Andy Burham wanted £100m. They had agreed £60m then Andy Burnham apparently went back to the Council leaders and they wanted a further £5m. The Government response was no that's it! So then when it was all the media and Boris was going to announce the deal was dead Andy popped up just before him on the street in Manchester and then when trying to blame the Government one of his little helpers, or puppet masters, popped along and showed his phone and showed him their phones and he is like they are just telling me now on social media etc, when it came out that he knew hours before his little impromptu press call. Own Goal there.
I get that he wanted to get the best deal - very subjective the word best what is best? - anyway, when he knew that was the end of the road he should have done what the Labour Major did in South Yorkshire the following day and said I wanted more but this was the most we could get so we will have to take it.
Everyone knew we were going to go into Tier 3 but Boris and Andy were just to busy trying to blame the other for putting us in it. Andy kept harping on about bouncers and taxi drivers, what about airline pilots, airline staff, the ground crew at Manchester Airport, travel agents and other jobs and industry's that are suffering from this? He didn't mention them!
So the government said they will review it in 28 days and I doubt we will see an inside of the pub this side of Xmas and whilst all this is going on Tory MP's are voting to stop kids getting free kids in the school holidays whilst taking a pay rise themselves. Talk about one rule for one and another for them. It is shocking. No wonder people have had enough.
