As rightfully angry as we should be about China hiding the true extent of the pandemic, secretly buying up all the global safety equipment and grossly under reporting the deaths the real fury should be at America and the UKs handling of this because quite frankly we expect more from them.
How angry can you really be about a brutal regime that locks a million Uyghurs up in labour camps, runs an Orwellian mass surveillance state and harvests the body organs of dissidents?
China is a repressive regime, that they misled us and lied about the true danger of this pandemic should come as no surprise, the standards however are far higher for the UK and America.
The splendid irony of Boris getting the virus after boasting it wasn’t big issue aside, the UK are in danger of a full blown pandemic now, as is America.
Nothing sums up the horror of where America is right now quite like watching Trump’s rambling, contradictory and absurd Pandemic briefings – this is so beyond his intellectual capacity it is terrifying.
America is being run by an infantile man-baby devoid of any self awareness.
The lies and half truths spouted by Trump are beneath our collective intelligence but the real threat to the rest of us now is that his incompetence will cause a fully fledged economic implosion within America the likes we’ve never seen.
Look at this…

…the economic impact of the pandemic is the second wave of this tsunami and we urgently need to be preparing for this the moment the public health threat passes.
When Beijing catches the coronavirus, the planet gets sick, when Washington catches it, Capitalism dies.
