Covid 19 Cummings and Track And Trace. What does this mean to us?

Dear readers it’s Thursday again and here’s this week’s blog instalment.

Two days ago I managed to go downstairs for the first time in ages and spent a few hours with my daughter. It absolutely exhausted me but I did it.
I just want my life back I’ve got so much that needs to be done and I can’t do it.

Post Covid 19 fatigue is awful it completely takes over your body but I believe that it does go eventually.
So many people are suffering from this fatigue and I doubt that they’ll be fit to return to work when the government demands it.

So many people think that you get better straight away after having covid 19 related symptoms. Hardly anyone does though.

Developing bacterial pneumonia was very scary for me and my daughter.
I couldn’t breathe, every small move hurt and made me out of breath.
Apparently lots of people develop this after having COVID19 and thousands have died.


Meanwhile Cummings is allowed to spread the virus And have absolutely no repercussions for himself.

The repercussions of his actions however will continue for a long time though.
People will have caught Covid 19 off him. All it takes is for him to touch something, to walk down a street etc.. 
Some people will now copy his behaviour thinking that it’s ok for them to do the same.

So yes I’m very angry at him and his lame excuses and I’m even angrier at the people defending him.
They know that he shouldn’t have done this but they carry on supporting him because they don’t care if we die.
We are all surplus to requirements, expendable.
They don’t grieve if we die. They just don’t care.


There will be a  second wave coming because this country and especially our prime minister haven’t done anything really to  protect  us against this virus.
Meanwhile  the government wants to ease the Covid 19 restrictions whilst once again doing nothing to protect us.

I see their #HerdImmunity plans are continuing to me its pretty obvious.

Yesterday the government announced their track and trace solution. It sounds brilliant doesn’t it but dig below the surface and you’ll see that it isn’t.
The system hasn’t been completed yet, it’s not fit to launch, theres no reassurance that our data will be safe.

It’s also worrying that the government is only pushing three or so so called symptoms of covid 19.

The symptoms  vary, not everyone has a cough, not everyone loose their sense of smell or taste.
Regardless of this almost everyone that catches it cannot recover quickly.


Unless you are extremely unwell a hospital wont admit you. You have to go home and manage it yourself.


You can only test positive for covid 19 within around 5 days of contracting it. This ensures that the amount of positive test results are massively underrated.
Lots of us caught it before the government was testing everyone.

The tests are also unreliable. Don’t think that you’ve tested negative that your safe from contracting the virus your not.

You can catch it from any public area straight after having a negative test result.
So even with the so called track and trace system people will still be spreading it unknowingly.
The only way to stop this virus is to have a proper lockdown.

I’ve read  countless posts online  saying that if you eat healthily  you’ll recover quicker.

You can’t go out to shop whilst infected or recovering. You become reliant upon online shops and food parcels.

Your income is vastly reduced also so buying the basics and making do is a priority. 

Being  physically able to cook a big meal is another problem.
The fatigue is unreal and your muscles ache all the time. But we do our best with what we’ve got.

It’s all we can do. It’s bloody scary yet so many aren’t taking it seriously at all. 

This is most likely because of the government’s complete lack of direction about anything.

Their priority is to get people back into work regardless of the risks. They worship at the feet of money amd commerce, the publics safety means nothing to them.

The government also wants schools to go back yet it still isn’t safe.
The government doesn’t want to listen about safety. They’re willing to sacrifice our teachers and our children in the process.

So what do we do now?
We still need to follow the social distancing rules despite what the government says.

Covid 19 is life changing and not in a good way.

Please keep safe folks I worry about you all. I’m going to continue to fight against this virus and hopefully get better soon.

Love to you all xxx.

Covid 19 survivors forgotten and struggling.

Dear readers have to apologise once again for the lateness of my blog.

As you read last week I thought that I was recovering, I even took my dog for a short walk on the field behind me. Huzzah I said in victory, I’ve beaten it, I’ve survived.

Little did I know that I was to relapse very suddenly the next day.

Whilst I’m writing this account I have to inform you that I wasn’t tested when I first caught it. At the time testing was for essential workers only. I did however have most of the symptoms and I’m certain that I did have it.

I most likely contracted it at my local small Asda store near me. I didn’t go out to any other place. Whilst they had people lining up correctly and had hand sanitizer to use if you wanted to, it wasn’t compulsory and hardly anyone in the store were wearing masks or protective gear.

As a result of everyone panic buying it was crowded, hot and full of people ignoring the rules. A young man coughed over me when he saw me wearing a mask. He coughed and walked away.

I wish that I had been quicker in response to this and had filmed him but I wasn’t and it is what it is. Whilst I can’t say that it was this that caused my illness, I can say that it didn’t help.

The public are confused as to what they should do regarding social distancing. The government has been vague at best and have acted with such a lack of care and disdain that I don’t think we have seen for centuries.

Let the weaker people die! Lets use herd immunity to kill them off! It doesn’t matter because they’re worthless to us.

The opposition and government advisors tried to put a stop to this and the government was made to retract that statement. However we know that they’re still continuing with their herd immunity plans.

Thousands of people have died, most likely more than the government’s official figures state. Each and every one of those people were somebody’s child, brother, sister, mum, dad, aunt or uncle. Every one of them are sadly missed and their loved ones unable to have a proper funeral for them. They’re all in my thoughts and I’m lucky that I’m not one of those numbers.

The NHS has done its best to take care of their Covid 19 patients but the government has failed to provide adequate funding for this and a totally inadequate amount of PPE safety clothing.

The government claimed to have asked several companies for much needed ventilators but they were the wrong ones, they weren’t safe to use. Leaving the doctors and nurses caring for extremely ill patients to do the best that they could do with a massively inadequate amount of equipment.

It isn’t all about death though. As thousands of people have sadly died thousands have survived also. Lets talk about them.

I can talk firsthand about my struggles with this awful disease and I can also reiterate friends experiences of it. It’s not pleasant though.

The amount of people that think that you only have the illness for a week or so is astounding. Quite obviously because hardly anyone has or is talking about it.

I’m sat in bed writing this because as I said earlier my condition deteriorated very quickly after developing bacterial pneumonia. I was extremely scared, my daughter was extremely worried and if it wasn’t for a kind friend coming to hep me in the middle of the night I might not be here to type this.

I started to feel extremely unwell very quickly, it came over me like a wave. I muttered something like “I have to got to bed now” and there I stayed for a day until I worsened again.

I phoned my doctors surgery and eventually had a telephone consultation. I was prescribed some antibiotics but after waiting for around two and a half days my condition deteriorated even more.

I was struggling for every breath, moving hurt and I had a very high temperature. Upon seeing the state I was in my daughter told me to phone 111 for some advice.

Phoning 111 was tough, I was passed from one person to another so I gave up. It was later that night when my daughter insisted that I dialled 999 and I’m so glad that I did. They were so patient and understanding and triaged me to an emergency walk in clinic in my local town at 11.45pm.

My friend took me and we waited in his car until I was called in. The doctor was wearing full PPE and he looked so nervous, most likely because I was coughing all the time.

After a conversation with him he diagnosed my condition and gave me some much stronger antibiotics that I’ve never had before. They appear to be working but time will tell.

What worries me about this whole situation is that if you have symptoms you are quite rightly hold to stay at home and avoid contact with anyone. What if you live alone, have no family and friends and aren’t in contact with local services?

What happens if you deteriorate like I did with a secondary illness because my immune system was broken down by the Covid 19 virus?

What happens if you don’t have a landline or any credit for your mobile phone? Not everyone has a contract phone. What happens if you don’t know anyone that could take you in their car if you can’t drive?

All these what ifs are being ignored. I’m positive that many people must have died as a result of being on their own with no access to help.

Whilst many local communities have some excellent help and support groups, if you have no access to them albeit via the telephone or the internet then you’re really stuffed.

I’ve got absolutely no doubt that if I didn’t have my wonderful daughter and my amazing friend I would have tried to sit it out at home so not to infect anyone else. I certainly wouldn’t have been able to get to the emergency clinic and I wouldn’t have got the care that I needed.

I have to say this again though, whilst everyone is quite rightly talking about the deaths no one is talking about the survivors.

The survivors that are struggling to do the most basic tasks, that find walking upstairs near impossible if they don’t rest at every step or two. The survivors that have been affected by Covid 19 that badly that it has affected other internal organs and limbs.

The patients that are learning to walk again, that have been on ventilators or oxygen and are now suffering with muscle loss and other related problems.

Whilst it’s great saying that people have recovered not enough their stories aren’t being heard, their voices are lost except for the amazing self help groups on Facebook.

And here’s the kicker, it’s not known if we develop an immunity to it after contracting it. It’s such a strange and devious virus, it appears to replicate inside your body when you think that you’ve got over it. It weakens the immune system so much that it puts you at risk of catching another illness, or develop a new one like I did.

There are so many symptoms that so many people get that aren’t listed. It’s scary.

Whilst communities and voluntary organisations are trying to help us and provide support the government ignores the above. They want to loosen the social distancing rules whilst the mortality rates are rising. This in itself is scary. Add into the mix the huge number of people that now think that its ok to carry on as before.

So many people think that the quarantine rules are over and they can go out socialising again. This is because the government has been unclear about everything. I worry about them and their families.

I want to shout out loud to everyone stay indoors! Please don’t think that you’re immune to covid 19 because no one is and everyone needs to remember this. Many think that I’m overreacting but I’m not. When the second wave comes I fear that it’s going to be worse than the first.

I cant thank my friends, local CLP and the NHS enough. I also want to thank you all as well because your kind words etc have helped me to get through this. You all mean the world to me thank you so much.

Keep safe everyone.

Covid 19 and me. My experience.

Dear readers, its Thursday once again and I hope that you are all safe and well.

Whilst I haven’t had a test to confirm that I’ve had Covid 19 I did have all the symptoms and this is my experience of it.

The past two weeks or so have been very different for me. I had taken my health for granted albeit for my underlying health conditions and I took every precaution that I could have done to avoid catching Covid 19.

For a few days before it hit me hard I had a headache (not unusual for me) a scratchy throat and a slight cough. I put this down to yet another migraine/ headache and a bit of hay fever, so I carried on as normal.

A few days after the headache (which wouldn’t go) and the scratchy throat came the next wave of symptoms. I developed a temperature, extreme tiredness and breathlessness just getting out of bed was a struggle. I did my best to care for my daughter and to appear as normal as I could but it beat me and my daughter sent me to bed.

I didn’t and wasn’t able to get out of bed for long periods of time, going to the loo was a struggle and I felt like I’d done a 5k run or likewise when I had to go downstairs for something.

I wasn’t hungry, the virus does that to you not only does it take away your sense of smell it also prevents you from feeling hungry. Strange isn’t it.

I can’t remember much about the last two weeks because it all fell into a blur.

The worst thing for me is the breathlessness and tiredness. I’m still very breathless and I’m still getting waves of tiredness. I want to get back to normal, whatever normal is these days but I can’t.

There was two days in the middle of the blur when I thought that I was better, not totally but I was able to stay downstairs with my daughter. It was a false hope though because it came back with full force and I was back in bed not able to do much.

How am I now? To be honest I haven’t got a clue. I’m still breathless and suffering from fatigue and I’ve been told that this can take a while to go. Covid 19 affects your lungs quite badly and my body has to recover. I need to allow my body to repair itself.

I did find the whole experience to be scary though. Four nights ago I was lying in bed wondering if the last breath that I took would be my last. I know that this sounds dramatic but not being able to breathe with ease does this to you. I had to put on a brave face and when my daughter asked if I was ok I told her that I was. I don’t think that she believed me though.

How am I now? Well I’m functioning and thats about it. I’m trying to catch up with my social media which has been a blessing for me. Without it I would have felt so alone and even more scared.

A friend took me to collect my medication yesterday. I couldn’t have a home delivery because Boots the Chemist wanted to charge me a fiver I think, and I don’t have that sort of money to spare.

Financially its floored me. I have no money at all because Ive had to buy things online and rely upon friends which is more expensive than trying to find a bargain like I usually do.

It’s left me feeling very humble and I’m now relying upon food parcels to keep us going. My daughter is missing eating fruit but I told her that I’ll be able to buy her some in the near future hopefully.

I hate feeling like this but it is what it is. Friends have helped me and I’m forever grateful to them for being there for me.

I am angry though, I’m angry at the government for not taking Covid 19 seriously enough. I’m angry with them today when I heard that they want to relax the quarantine even though the mortality figures grew again yesterday.

They want everything to open again so that they’re friends can profit from it.

Thousands will die as a result of this.

I’m also angry that disabled people have been abandoned amongst the Covid 19 chaos. Many of them are usually housebound anyway and even more are told that they have to stay indoors but aren’t given any support to do this.

Whilst other benefit payments went up by twenty quid a week ESA and PIP didn’t. They desperately need an increase in money to get through this.

Those with money say that it’s easy to stay at home during the quarantine, that its easy to shop online for food. It isn’t though is it. You have to spend over a certain amount to get food delivered and many cant afford to do this.

This then results in them having to go out to the shops and putting their health at risk.

Personally I still think that the government is covertly still going along with their herd immunity plans. They’ll never admit this but to many of us this is blatantly obvious. Thousands of people have died, we have the highest mortality rates in Europe yet people are praising Johnson for doing a good job.

He’s done a good job of allowing people to die hasn’t he, maybe this is what they’re celebrating.

For anyone saying that Covid 19 is a conspiracy theory, that its not serious and the mortality figures are made up you won’t be saying this if you catch it. You’ll definitely have a shock if you do.

My thoughts and prayers are with everyone that’s suffering from Covid 19, for everyone thats died as a result of catching Covid 19 and to their families having to cope with the loss of a loved one.

Love to you all in these challenging times xx.

Please read, share, tweet and email my blog. Every share does help to get the word out there and I’m really grateful for everyone that have done so already.

Quarantined and Covid 19 symptoms. Week two.

Dear readers after over a week in bed ill with Covid 19 symptoms I’m now hopefully on the mend. It’s a very strange virus one day you feel a lot better the next you feel rotten. I feel rotten today because I hoovered my living room.

Being quarantined and unwell really does make you analyse your life and friendships. You realise that material things don’t matter and its a very humbling experience having to rely upon friends.

It’s not easy asking for help and I’m very lucky that I have friends locally that can if they’re well go to the shop for me. If you don’t have friends and or access to the internet or phone then you’re stuck trying to cope on your own.

It isn’t an idyllic situation though. It’s pretty rotten when you don’t have any money and have to do a lot of your shopping online. It’s more expensive because you can’t go bargain hunting and buy reduced food etc.

Earlier this week I got myself into a panic because my gas ran out. I envisioned myself having to go to the shop for credit even though I’m infectious and even though I would have worn a mask etc I’d still be infectious. Luckily a friend helped me and both myself and my daughter both disinfected my gas card but I’m still worrying that I’ve spread it.

It’s scary when you see that you have no money but need the basics to keep going, no one wants to have to live like this.

The government has totally ignored and neglected disabled people. They aren’t going to get the extra twenty pounds a week because apparently they ‘get enough’. My answer to this is do they hell. This is an extremely worrying time for them, many have quarantined themselves for twelve weeks, many are stuck in their houses all the time.

The government claims that they’ve distributed enough PPE to hospitals etc when they clearly haven’t. NHS doctors, nurses and workers have died from covid 19 as a result. Elderly people have died in nursing homes because they also haven’t got the correct PPE. Believe me the government once again has blood on their hands.

I read yesterday that Boris Johnson is supposedly close to having a nervous breakdown. I don’t believe him, he’s a known liar and he’s shirked his duties as our prime minister. You’d think that most people would be angry at this but many aren’t. They reckon that he’s doing a good job even though at the time of writing this we have one of the highest numbers of death due to Covid 19.

So what is it like for people without money and jobs to be quarantined? I can tell you that it’s bloody rotten. Thousands of people have had to apply for Universal Credit and they’ve found out that its an awfully cruel system and you don’t have enough money to live off.

I’m lucky because I got a mild dose, I suspect that thousands of people have now struggling to cope and recover from a serious case of Covid 19. Thousands have died and we must never forget them.

How will we move on once this is over? I really don’t know. I don’t think for one minute that Covid 19 will disappear overnight and I’m extremely worried that the government will allow children to go back to school and allow people to go back to work far too early.

We are living through unprecedented times and all we can do at the moment is to take each day as it comes.

Please can I thank everyone that reads my blog, supports my blog, has sent me get well wishes and messages. They really do mean the world to me.

I’m hoping to be back in good health soon so I can continue to help people. At the moment I feel useless and a massive letdown to so many. I have been helping people locally online etc etc but I don’t feel like its enough and I’d like to apologise for that.

Please read, share, tweet and email my blog. Thank you so much to everyone that has done and is doing this. Also a massive thank you to everyone that supports my blog, this means the world to me. Thank you.

Isolation,Easter and Covid 19.

Dear readers I really hope that you are all ok and are well. It feels like everything has changed in the uk and not for the better either.

Thousands of people are ill with the Covid 19 (Coronavirus) virus and thousands have died also. We are also in lockdown only allowed out for essential trips such as food shopping, appointments with doctors etc and our permitted exercise.

Sadly so many people have been ignoring the lockdown and the restrictions and I expect the number of fatalities due to Covid 19 will peak in approximately two weeks.

What does lockdown mean to those of us that are abiding to the rules and have to abide to the rules because of health conditions?

People are now more isolated than they were before. A trip to the food bank or supermarket looking for bargains might have been the only time that they spoke to other people. Now they have to stay indoors and manage the best that they can.

Thousands of people are now realising how awful the Universal Credit system is and are wondering how they’re going to survive on it, the payments are too low and the five week wait is awful.

The truth is that we have been saying this for years but we were ignored by many, not all of the people now claiming Universal Credit. Whilst I’m not ignoring the fact that many have stood alongside us in solidarity, some didn’t and we were called scroungers by some of those now dependant on the benefits system.

We’ve been trying to survive on next to nothing for years, my disabled friends have been persecuted by the government for years.

Thousands of people have died as a result of the government’s draconian benefit system, the very same system that can and does take away the lifeline that keeps you alive.

At the touch of a button everything can be taken away from a person and yes whilst many cared, a far larger amount of people didn’t. Maybe they will now they’re having to experience life dependant on the torturous Universal Credit system.

What can we do to help?

We can help and advise people on what they should do, and we can signpost them to relevant organisations, supporting people in this capacity is so important.

I did go to our usual spot this Thursday to see how everyone was. To say they’re coping isn’t entirely accurate because its hard to cope when your support lines have been broken. I’m very limited as to what I can do to help because I’m also living on next to nothing. It’s awful but I’m plodding on as I say.

As I write this its Easter Sunday and whilst people are celebrating with Easter eggs and Sunday dinners thousands of people won’t be celebrating, they’ll be thinking about how they’re going to manage for the upcoming days. Believe me there’s nothing worse than being hungry at a time when others are celebrating.

The Covid 19 virus has changed the way that people work, live and survive beyond recognition. It’s highlighted how fragile many links in society were, how precarious paid employment is and how we can loose everything in such a short amount of time.

Covid 19 has also highlighted how precious life is, that we can’t take it for granted and it’s also showed us unlimited amounts of pain and grief when loved ones succumb to it and die.

The government doesn’t really care though, they see each and every one of us as expendable, if we die tough. They’re still using their herd immunity policy in all but name. We all need to highlight their cruelty and show them that everyone is valuable, every life is important. If we don’t they’ll carry on regardless because they don’t care.

Whilst our country has changed beyond recognition we must get through this a day at a time, our future is uncertain and living with this uncertainty is extremely stressful.

My thoughts and sympathies go to everyone that have died from Covid 19 and related illnesses, to their loved ones that are grieving and can’t give them the funeral that they would have wanted to. To loose someone so suddenly and unexpectedly must be extremely painful.

Please keep strong, you are important despite what the government says. Lets take each day as it comes together. We can do this.

Love to you all xxxx

The truth about Covid 19 self employment and disability.

Dear readers, I hope that you are all safe and as well as you can be. Many of us are trying to self isolate which is hard when you don’t have enough money to do an online shop and even if you can afford to do this there’s no open delivery slots.
Nearly a million people have applied for universal credit in the past fortnight as a result of people loosing their jobs or having to give up their self employment as a because of the Covid 19 pandemic.
However thousands of people have had trouble obtaining the correct ID needed to apply for Universal Credit. As a result they were told to telephone the hotline and make an appointment with a Universal Credit advisor.
Thousands of people tried to follow their advice but were unable to contact an advisor because the telephone lines were too busy and thousands have given up trying to apply.
DWP Officials have said that they’re working “flat out” to help people get support, however what they say and do are often two different stories.
The reality is that new claimants are not feeling supported and have been left with little or no help.
The government have refused to scrap the five week wait for universal credit telling new claimants that they have to apply for a loan from the DWP to help them. It sounds good however these loans have to be paid back often dragging people into more hardship.
There was a warning on Wednesday that 20% of small businesses could fold in the next month due to the collapse in consumer demand, despite unprecedented government intervention to support jobs.
Yet the truth is that there is no support for self employed people having had to give up their self employment or put it on hold.
The governments response that they might be able to get a payment in June is inadequate and it hasn’t given them any security at all.
Having no income until June will have a devastating effect upon them, most will be hungry, many will be at risk of loosing their homes.
Being quarantined at home is awful for those of us unable to buy food and living in
fuel poverty. Every day is a struggle and more help needs to be given unconditionally.
Loans given by the government that have to be paid back to the DWP are unjust and cruel, most have paid into the system so that they could get help if they needed it. That’s how it used to work, it isn’t called social security for no reason. It used to provide security for those in need. Instead people are being made to pay back money that was rightfully theirs in the first place.
And its even worse for disabled people.
Many disabled people have been given very little information on the risks that they face or how they should mitigate those.
They can’t practice social distancing when you have care workers coming in and out of their houses.
Those living independently on direct payments haven’t been allocated any personal protective equipment or the funding to purchase it so are forced to go without, putting themselves and their carers at risk.
Most have no funding to offer sick pay, this results in a lack of income for their PAs
Which also puts themselves and their carers in an awful situation.
Within the new Coronavirus bill lies legislation that keeps disabled people living safely at home has now been removed.
The government has made changes to the Care Act 2014 which remove the legal duty on local authorities to provide care, except where not providing it would breach people’s human rights.
This could wipe out most of adult social care – with no guarantee it will ever be replaced.
Whilst people are saying that the Covid 19 outbreak has brought people together this isn’t happening for many disabled people. They’re being abandoned by the government with no care at all.
We all need to be talking about this and holding the government to account for their actions towards disabled people and the self employed.

Yesterday I took a walk around Ashton and spoke to some of the people that I’ve helped and are still helping.
Most are struggling, all of them are worried about catching Covid 19. I did what I could do to help, but I feel completely useless at the moment.
Little trips to the shops is our only option whilst trying to keep to the social distancing rules which are still being ignored by so many.
I understand that its hard to judge the distance correctly and supermarkets and shops have been really good at ensuring that people keep to the social distancing rules.
Please keep to the rules folks, whilst some people think that they’re invincible many of us aren’t. And don’t get me started on the conspiracy theorists posts. They can cause so much damage.
Above all else keep safe, feel free to email me if you want someone to talk to, because I am thinking of you all.

The Ugly Truth About UNIVERSAL CREDIT.

Dear readers its Thursday and most of us are on lockdown.

I did take a walk down to Ashton but I was unable to hand much out food wise because I have no spare cash, none at all but I did the best that I could do given the circumstances.

I realise that most of you are probably stressed and/ or worried about catching Covid 19 and are trying to keep away from people as much as possible, but its nearly impossible because we can’t afford to do one big shop for the week etc because universal credit prevents this.

Universal Credit is being touted at the moment as being the best thing ever, that it’ll help all self employed and previously employed people and that it will be of great benefit to them.

Claim universal credit and you’ll be ok!! But it’ll take at least five weeks to process and if you take a loan from us you have to pay it back.

The truth is that as of yesterday half a million people were attempting to apply for universal credit and many of them didn’t have the correct ID. They were then told to phone up the DWP using the universal credit hotline to make an appointment.

The truth is that the system couldn’t cope, too many people were calling and many have given up because they cant get through to speak to a DWP advisor who could hep them to proceed with their claim.

Universal credit is responsible for thousands of children and their parents being hungry and going without meals, adequate clothing.

It’s also responsible for many people becoming homeless. Many disabled people have given up with the system because its so stressful.

We must never, ever forget this cruelty bestowed to us by a cruel and uncaring government.

Another alternative was given to disabled people via Martin Lewis. He advised disabled people to apply for ESA not realising that its notoriously difficult to claim and most people are rejected upon applying so they have to appeal and then take it to a tribunal.

Thousands of people will now see and hopefully understand how complicated and heartless the DWP regime is.

Self employed people have been informed that they won’t get any help until the end of May. This will be far too late for most people.
Many will be close to loosing their homes.
Many will be hungry and the government doesn’t care one bit.

You see myself and other campaigners have been protesting and campaigning against this cruel, heartless system since its conception.

Many of us have been called scroungers, lazy, work shy and we must all get a job.

I suspect that some of these people will now be trying to struggle through the system as I type this, maybe they’ll realise how cruel the system is now.

Myself and other campaigners have lost count of how many people have died as a result of this sadistic, inhumane system. We’ve cried countless tears and mourned many losses.

We also worry about our children and young people because their struggle will be even harder than ours.

I’ve recorded so many awful situations in this blog, most of them heartbreaking, and now on top of this will be the deaths of people from Covid 19 struggling to cope at home after being told that they’re not a priority for help.

I really don’t recognise this country anymore, it used to be much better than this even during the hard times but I thank everyone thats campaigning for a better future.

Please can I ask you to take all of the Covid 19 Coronavirus information seriously. I know that it’s definitely not easy.

One day I hope that things will be better for us all.

Keep strong and I will continue to update my blog on a regular basis.

Please read, like, share, tweet and email my blog.
