New Corona virus legislation, living within a Police State

Ok before I begin, I’m not stupid, I understand both the reasoning and need for ‘The Health Protection UK Act 2020’. I understand the reasons why 60 million UK citizens are no longer permitted to leave their home, at least for a minimum of 6 months before the legislation is reviewed.

Six months! 😀 That’s living within a ‘Police State’ in all but name.

So please let me be clear on this, I’m not complaining, this corona virus infection death rate after having tested positive for COVID-19 is doubling every 4 days. As of now 600 deaths a day, and expected to be 1000 deaths per day when our Easter break falls. So understandably our Government attempts to suppress these tragic deaths by fear (I’m not being critical), fear of contracting this awful disease and the burden this puts on our NHS, also fear of monetary fines, Court appearances and/or possible prison for those contravening these new Regulations. 

Sad times, ‘it is what it is’.

“If you are not complaining Andrew, why publish this today?” you may ask. Well having this WordPress has given me a disciplined reason to sit down and carefully read this new Act of Parliament, or ‘Instrument’ as Boris prefers to call it? (Statutory Instrument is a new one on me)……. 😀 why else would I have bothered posting?
