It’ll be “Well, thanks for allowing us to now do things that weren’t actually banned in the first place.”
Sturgeon was first out of the gates:
I’m going to ignore the open goal that wee Jimmy has left for us.
In case you were in any doubt, there was nothing at all in the existing legislation – or the associated ‘guidelines’ – that said you could only exercise once a day or only for one hour or anything at all like that.
Boris is going to do exactly the same… he’s going to come up with a list of 3 or 4 things that were never proscribed in the first place and throw that to us, like a zoo-keeper tossing fish to the captive seals.
If any real things are actually going to be eased up, my money is on things for women (hairdressers, nail bars, tanning salons, horse riding schools, shoe shops) and for the dullard middle-classes (golf courses, shoots, garden centres, estate agents, stately homes, galleries and museums).
We’ll probably not get to go to the football, the motor racing, the cinema, a pub or a restaurant this side of Christmas.
We shall see.
UPDATE: Jesus H Christ, I never thought I was being optimistic…. fuck me, what a crock of shit.
