Our politicians are not immune to the national meltdown provoked by Covid-19

I was queuing outside a shop at the weekend when I heard a fellow customer chatting with their friend and declaring Im sick of life. While resisting the urge to offer them a hug something social distancing doesnt allow for in the current context the remark does sum up an element of the broad national feeling at the moment.
The ideal outcome of a pandemic is that you survive, that you stay alive during a period where so many have died, and there is an immense privilege to feeling bored, sick of it all and over it. If you are feeling any or all of these things right now, then congratulations, you are alive.
