As I watched the Prime Minister order mass house arrest on Monday night, I felt revulsion, anger and grief-as anyone brought up when this was a free and well-governed country would. I also felt terribly alone.
You would not have known, from anything broadcast that night or printed the following day, that anyone was unhappy with these events. But they were.
So above all things this week, I would like to thank all the kind, perplexed people who have got in touch with me by so many means, to say they share my doubts about the Government's handling of Covid-19.....
I now suspect this dark season might get still worse before we see the clear, calm light of reason again. The greater the mistake we have made, the less willing we are to admit it or correct it. This is why I greatly fear worse developments in the coming few days....
So do not be surprised by anything. After last week can we rule anything out? This new Stasi society has a horrifying level of support. Humberside police are already advertising a 'portal" for citizens to inform on their neighbors for breaking the 'social distancing' rules.
If you don't think they have any takers, think again. Northamptonshire police have revealed that their control room has had 'dozens and dozens' of calls about people ignoring the order.....
Meanwhile, our economy is still crippled, and the overpraised Chancellor Rishi Sunak, like some beaming Dr. Feelgood with a case full of dodgy stimulants, seeks to soothe the pain by huge injections of funny money.
He will get this back from us as soon as we are allowed to go out again. Just wait till you get the bill, in increased taxes, inflation and devastated savings.
It ought not to be so. In fact....

Good grief. And there are plenty squealing already.
Now what country was it where squealing, even on your parents, was considered a virtue? When was that and where was it?
Well there are more than a couple of answers to that. And they were all bad.
Daily Mail should have thought of that weeks ago when they were all to happy to whip up panic.
Now they dont like the consequences?
You don't have to excerpt the headline, genius!
You used ellipaes to shorten it by one word??
Now we have headline stumps, as well as sentence stumps within the article stump.
PETER HITCHENS: Theres powerful evidence this Great Panic is foolish, yet our freedom is still broken and our economy crippled
Daily Mail is pure trash.
Comments section heavily anti US/Trump.
Yep and the sheople fell right in line like good lil subjects. Aiding and abetting the FNM and our government
“Now we have headline stumps, as well as sentence stumps within the article stump.”
Is this better or worse than muffin stumps?? Asking for a friend named Elaine...;-)
Even an excerpt should have a full headline and full sentences.
Why don't you (NotRush) just post some lobster shells and chicken wings??
Dude, chill out and have another beer.
Geez, dude, did you wake up on the wrong side of the bed.
thank you Peter Hitchens.
people have lost their senses.
hopefully, they will return.
more correctly, I should have typed:
people have lost leave of their senses.
Many people are weak morally. They want to be told what they have to do instead of taking responsibility for their lives, because then they are not responsible for the results of their lives.
The disease may be real, but it is not any more serious than many that have happened in the last few decades or years, and this is a fake crisis IMHO.
Nice metaphysical concept there...
We have witnessed in the passed years democrats pure emotional response syndrome that has overrun any kind of sane factual comprehension they may have had in the past(which I doubt). The scumedia fan the hysteria, the rat leaders point fingers, lay blame, and demand so no matter what solution are put into place or suggested nothing is good. They would be more comfortable with an Obama or Hillary in charge saying don’t worry child your dying but things will get better
Then show it to us!
One of these days; a few thousand Richard Dreyfuss types are going to remove their masks...
I live in central Virginia and visited a couple of local rescue squads/engine companies. They told me their calls for aid/transport to hospital is about the same as it always was/is. Ask your local rescue squad, they will give you the real scoop.
