  • So is it just me or are you too totally confused by the messaging coming from your politicians?

  • Here in the UK?

  • The Labor Party leader Kier Starmer today just hours ago called for an immediate lock down of the entire country.

  • Now, just this morning, our prime minister, the leader of the other party, said that we could expect tougher measures because of the severity of this deadly virus.

  • Tougher then the Tier four locked down, currently being experienced by 78% of the people in this country, he said.

  • Tougher measures are what we should expect going forward now.

  • In that same interview, our prime minister lobbied to keep schools open and at the same time he said This and I quote the threat and risk Thio.

  • Young people is very, very small indeed and the risk to staff is very small as well unquote.

  • Now these are Children from 5 to 18 years old and the average age of a teacher is around 40 to 42 years old.

  • Ah, large chunk of the population.

  • The risk is very, very small indeed.

  • And yet for the entire country we need toe lock down even further because of this dangerous, dangerous, deadly virus.

  • So I'll ask you again, Are you confused?

  • Are you confused by the duplicitous nature of our politicians and their messaging?

  • Because I am.

  • I don't know who to believe anymore.

  • I don't see the science.

  • I don't see the reasoning.

  • And it always seems to be some alternative agenda happening behind the scenes that makes no sense to me and doesn't act in my interests.

  • It doesn't act in the interests of entrepreneurs, off businesses, of citizens of our Children, of our mental health of our physical health.

  • On while they're going back and forth giving different answers to the same question.

  • We sit here in lock down and our Children don't get educated.

  • Our businesses die, we get unemployed.

  • Our suicide rate is that the highest in 20 years are depression.

  • Rate has doubled.

  • Um, and you know, 2030 million hospital appointments are being missed because of this lock down on.

  • I don't know about you, but I'm frustrated.

  • And, uh, I'm tired of it.

  • What I really want is a leader who tells us the truth.

  • Ah, leader.

  • Who can level with us and also tell us the difficult decisions we're gonna have to make for the greater good and the long term future of this country.

  • That's what I want.

  • I want someone to give it to a straight and say, Guess what?

  • This is the sacrifice and this is the benefit.

  • Um or I want someone to say we cannot eliminate this virus.

  • We're gonna have to control it on.

  • We're gonna do this now for some prevention as opposed to some massive cure.

  • That's what that's going to cost us even more in the future.

  • And so that's what I'm frustrated with.

  • I'm curious what you think.

  • Please leave your comments below again.

  • I'm just flabbergasted toe watch.

  • Our leaders say two completely different things because they're pushing two completely different agendas.

  • That's what I really see on.

  • If you agree with me, please leave your comments below again.

  • I don't think this is difficult.

  • I think what we need to do is make science based decisions.

  • Ah, proportional response to this virus and show leadership.

  • What does a leader do?

  • Ah, leader innovates Ah Leader educates ah leader finds solutions.

  • Ah, Leader doesn't use fear as a weapon on a leader doesn't try to pursue agendas that aren't aligned with the citizens.

  • I know what I'm saying.

  • Sounds revolutionary.

  • It's not.

  • It's called democracy.

  • Serve the citizens.

  • So leave me your comments below.

  • Tell me what you think.

  • Let's take London in a new direction.

So is it just me or are you too totally confused by the messaging coming from your politicians?
