Again, a deeply unpopular opinion that exactly zero people share but I think that UK’s Cummings did the right thing and everybody who is piling on him is wrong.
Johnson’s government instituted a lockdown unwillingly and only because the snowflakes in the public were screaming bloody murder. If said snowflakes did keep their miserable kids “locked up in cramped spaces” like JK Rowling keeps bleating, that’s on them. And they know it. They are hounding this Cummings fellow because he reminds them that they bungled things up, and the guilt is intolerable.
I’d feel rage, too, if I had kept my kid locked inside over nothing.
The Cummings situation is different from what we have here in Illinois or what’s happening in Canada because Johnson’s government didn’t aggressively and willingly pursue a lockdown. It was forced to pursue it.
Be that as it may, the point I want to make here is that the rage against this one pretty insignificant guy shows that people know deep-down that they’ve subjected themselves to this for nothing. And that rankles.
And I’m going back to the gym on June 1st. Yippee!
