It’s good manners, and common sense.
After cabinet minister Michael Gove said wearing masks in shops is ‘good manners’ and won’t be mandatory, Prime Minister Boris Johnson has announced that it will be, with those in England and Wales who refuse facing a £100 fine.
“The prime minister has been clear that people should be wearing face coverings in shops and we will make this mandatory from July 24,” a spokesperson for 10 Downing Street said on Monday. The measure applies to England and Wales; Scotland has already made face coverings mandatory.
The opposition Labour Party was also displeased but for different reasons, criticizing Johnson for not mandating masks when it advised in favor of wearing them back in May, and “why it’ll take another 11 days before these new guidelines come into force,” according to the party’s health spokesman Jonathan Ashworth.
That, goyim, is true Western Democracy.
The ruling party and opposition party are arguing about whether to gag you in 11 days, or whether you should be gagged immediately, and should have been gagged all along.
This is a very important question for debate.
Labour leader Keir Starmer has criticized Johnson’s coronavirus response as “slow,” saying that the PM is “good on the rhetoric but he is not good on governing.” Starmer said there will inevitably be an inquiry into Downing Street’s handling of the pandemic.
The mask mandate is not the first time the Johnson cabinet has indulged in mixed messaging. Their initial strategy was reportedly to let the virus spread to generate “herd immunity,” before suddenly reversing course and imposing a lockdown on March 23. Johnson himself was sidelined for several weeks after contracting the virus in April.
The PM then urged Britons to go out and enjoy themselves in nature, only to threaten to close the beaches at the end of June amid a new spike in cases. This caused an uproar among the general public, with many noting that the police wasn’t nowhere near that zealous in cracking down on illegal parties, or mass protests in London and several other cities.
Well, at least you don’t have unelected EU bureaucrats imposing exactly the same policies on you.
If Hitler had been cold enough to not take the bait with Poland, he could have spent a few more years building up tons of air ordinance, and then when the time came for the tank blitz into France, he could have bombed London into submission in weeks.
If this had been done, then London today would be full of English Christians living free and normal lives. That was, by far, his worst mistake. Because of this mistake, the British are now slaves.
