Ooh Muslim's Muslim's Muslim's

 

Funny that, don't they have Muslim's down south or is it just northern Muslim's?

 

As far as I'm aware the likes of London and luton also have large Muslim areas?

Luton is nearly as bad as Leicester  with the 'rona and is one a watch list.

This is a terrible disease that effects BEM communities more than others percentage wise. So now is not the time to walk on eggshells if there is evidence of spikes in these communities then it’s got to be brought up for their Sake. This is a sensible approach and not a blame game.

When the government imposed restrictions in 24 hours people complain when they say it’s days people complain.

Ppeople probably complain because there is no consistency in what the Government do, as I said why wait 9 days before imposing wearing of masks in Churches and cinemas. What is the point in bringing a quarantine order in as they did, (which I agree with) but then say oh wear masks in church but you are ok for another 9 days, it is stupid.

I’ve not heard anything where the government has blamed Muslims. But recent spikes do seem to be in areas where large Asian community’s live.

Tory MP, Craig Whittaker, condemned for blaming BAME and Muslim people for rise in coronavirus cases.

'Pubs or "other activities" in England may need to close to allow schools to reopen next month, a scientist advising the government has said.'

 

 

 

PM Dom and puppet Bozza hiding behind the science as a threat.

 

Virus will spike, pubs will stay open... many schools will stay shut.  Just watch.

The flip side of this is the Blackburn & Derwen councillor, (Muslim female), I saw being interviewed on Sky yesterday who was adamant that the lockdown in the N West had been deliberately timed to coincide with Eid?  No evidence of course to support this claim other than her opinion & apparently some claims, made by her, that some of her constituents are also of this opinion. 

 

Yes, that would be right....hmmm?

I'm thinking Boris might play safe and we go into lockdown by September.

 

Given the number of crowds of people (drinkers and not) having a great time with bugger all social distancing we'll be chugging along at 3k a day by then.

Nothing wrong with bringing in restrictions, before a large event, the Government lost their bottle and did NOT cancel Cheltenham races on March 13th

Well as we know, with hindsight, it was considered a mistake not to cancel the Cheltenham Festival & also the the Liverpool v Athletico Madrid match, allowing thousands of fans to travel in from Spain, which was a hot spot at that time. 

 

Moving on to the situation at the moment with new restrictions in the Bradford area, which includes the continued closure of of indoor gyms. 

 

Last night, Look North ran a story of a gym owner in Shipley, who  has remained open as he finds the Govt advice that gyms must be closed 'Confusing'?  What is confusing about a continuous message that gyms are to remain closed? 

 

Apparently his customers are also 'confused' by the Govt advice & not only that, they are also 'Angry' as well.   The gym owner, Chris Gaskin, (Energy Mill Gym), also said he customers were emailing him telling him they need the gym & imposing a lockdown on gyms are making them 'Anti government.'   

 

Mr Gaskin believes that by remaining open he is providing a service, (call me cynical - no doubt still raking the money in as well?), & giving his customers a 'Little bit of liberty.' 

 

I think a little less time pumping iron & a bit more time jenning-up on the COVID-19 regulations.  Now that Mr Gaskin has put himself out there on Look North, I'd also expect the West Yorkshire Police to be paying him a call to help put him in the picture?

Maybe in a national emergency Government can do what they choose, but this cannot go on for 4 months and more. If the Government are forcing businesses to close, they should cover 100% of there costs.
