The Crackpottery of Coronavirus

Section:

Coronavirus has become the go-to excuse for just about anything that goes wrong and it is ridiculous suggests Matthew Steeples

“Coronavirus” and a shrug is now the equivalent of “leaves on the line.” Used  when anything at all goes wrong in this weird new era, this unfortunately completely overused response to any situation has become beyond irritating.

When I telephoned a car hire firm yesterday to simply extended a booking in France, I was told that under new rules because of “coronavirus,” I would have to go to a specific office in St Tropez. I got there and found it “closed due to coronavirus.”

 

Sent next to another location at a private airport by a call centre operative, I was told there that they could not help as they’d reduced their operation “due to coronavirus.”

Though I eventually sorted the problem by going to yet another location many miles away, this situation is far from rare. When any mishap occurs right now, people just pin it on coronavirus in spite of the fact that many problems have utterly nothing to do with such.

 

The likes of Marks & Spencer and Pizza Express are operations that have failed to move with the times, yet they blame their decline on a pandemic rather than their bad management. It’s the easy way out and it’s become the go-to get out clause.

 

Equally, crazy people are spreading messages that coronavirus is a creation of billionaires seeking to profit from us – one society sort ludicrously told me that it was “made” by Bill Gates whilst another, claiming in all seriousness it to be fact, announced that Barrack Obama had put it on a plane and sent it around the world. Here in coronavirus we have a new bonkers and sadly it has also brought with it the phrase “the new normal” also. The sooner such (and the virus itself) disappears into the ether, the better.

  1. Couldn’t agree more,it has gone beyond a joke and is seriously damaging peoples outlooks on life,it comes over as an over enthusiastic state brainwashing people into a state of continual fear,insanity!!!Get on with life and move forward for God’s sake!!!!

  2. Even though the guy has truckloads of money, isn’t it possible that Bill Gates could actually be a decent human being? Instead of squandering his money on endeavors aimed at only making more money (which helps no one but himself), he funds research to advance health, science and technology for the benefit of all. He promotes education and the development of infrastructure in parts of the world that others have left behind. Couldn’t he just be using his money to do good, without ulterior motive? Call me naïve, but I think there are still kind and decent humans out there – and I think Bill Gates is one of them.

    • Not based on his past. There is a great deal know about the Gates agenda and his life damaging experiments in Africa which you could easily look up, but as a starter why not check out the following article.

      • You are quoting anti Vaxxer Kennedy and his dangerous material and it has nothing of substance whatsoever. It is killing people. Promoting vaccine hesitancy and denial of effectiveness is evil, Your AV stance is SHIT David Allen. Take your lethal rubbish elsewhere.
