Do they really think we’re that thick? They must do, seeing as they’ve named the latest variant of concern “Omicron.” Omicron is the brand new variant that might just beat the jabs and cancel Christmas.
Omicron is an anagram of moronic. A listener emailed me earlier to point this out. I’d name him/her but I accidentally deleted the mail. It was well spotted.
The BBC is reporting this afternoon the two people in the UK have tested positive for the Omicron covid variant.
We really are suckers aren’t we? By we, I don’t mean you and me, but people generally. There’s no limit to what they’ll believe. Will they accept more restrictions to protect against the Moronic variant? Probably.
This from the BBC:
Countries around the world are currently racing to introduce travel bans and restrictions on southern African countries in an effort to contain Omicron’s spread.
Ten countries are now on the UK’s travel red list meaning, from Sunday at 04:00 GMT, all arrivals will have to quarantine in a hotel for 10 days.
On Friday, the UK placed South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Lesotho and Eswatini on the list.
In his announcement on Saturday, the health secretary said Angola, Mozambique, Malawi and Zambia would be added to that list.
He also said: “We’ve always been very clear that we won’t hesitate to take further action if that is what is required.”
Moronic. It’s beautiful really, when you think of it.
Ah balls to it all, I’m having a drink. What else is there to do?
