Some politicians that will go unnamed in this comment because, well, do I really need to name them? ... Are talking about lifting lockdowns right in the peak range of the pandemic. Even going on Twitter and encouraging civilian uprisings.

Man, I have a lot to say about my own government. I am not a fan. But I think we're actually lucky sometimes. Even our shitty government aren't quite that bad.

Saying that, they knew they were unprepared for a virus like this in 2017, when they had a rehearsal, and knew there would be medical shortages, and things like PPE. And we're still lagging behind almost every other country based on testing for the virus. They've cut funding for our health service for ten years so of course it's not going to do as well handling this virus as it could have dne.
But let's give them credit... they want out and "clapped" a couple of times, for our health care workers. And that makes everything better.

To leave on a positive note, this guy's a hero to me. Doing what our government should be doing... everything he can to help our health service.

He has raised even more money since this segment. I think it's over £20 million now. That's about 25-30 million dollars, I think.

What a guy :)
