10/05/20: my lockdown resolution

One very striking thing about the world wide Covid 19 crisis, I think, is the hugely differing effects it is having on different people.  For some the crisis is absolutely devastating.  For those coming down with the virus, particularly those with underlying health conditions, the effects are dreadful, our thoughts and prayers go with all those suffering from the virus, their family and friends.  And the economic effects on many people are dreadful, losing income and jobs, with friends in Africa reporting large unrest among people unable to go out and about in an attempt to earn enough of a living to eat that day.

22/2/20: I thought we'd stopped being a colonial power?

Before Christmas I wrotethis blog postin which I expressed concern about the policy of enticing professionals to this country.  Well, the issue has reappeared in the news this week, as reported on the front page of 'The Times' on Wednesday 19/2/20 with the headline 'Low-skilled immigrants to be barred'.  While, as commented on previously, we will be allowing, indeed, encouraging, highly skilled professionals to come to this country, we will be barring those with low-skills.
