During the first lockdown my Father in law was taken ill suddenly, hospitalised he was not allowed any visitors and he died shortly afterwards. This tragic loss, suffered by so many people in our Country and not unique to my family was endured as we firmly believed that the lockdown instigated by our Government was the right and correct thing to do.
We was also told that funeral gatherings were not allowed, this meant that he was sent off without his family being there, this has left a hole in our lives as we couldn’t say our final farewell. Never-the-less, it was for the greater good, for our Country in our hour of need, a sacrifice in our grieving process paid without hesitation and willingly paid.
Contrast this with downing street, we have since learned that they were having SOCIAL gatherings, drinking wine and eating merrily, whilst at work and encouraged to do so!
When this first came to light all sorts of excuses were used as to why these parties were legal, excuses that our Prime Minister gave to our House of Commons, it is now clear that he lied..
Now one might not have had a similar experience as our family, we can understand that if you hadn’t , you might want to move on. However spare a thought for all of us that did have such experiences, where mothers and fathers, grandparents, sons and daughters died without their family surrounding them, we are finding it so difficult to move on, especially faced with a constant reminder. every time we see the Prime minister carrying on as ‘normal’
