There is a time and a place for political blogs. There will also, one day, be a reckoning for this Johnson government.
An independent review into their decision-making process is inevitable. The utter shambles of their communications, along with the real possibility that wasting time on a “herd immunity”plan might cost thousands of lives, will be fully scrutinised.
And make no mistake, Between the Lines will be there at that moment.
But, right now, we need to pull together. We live in unprecedented times – scoring political points is, frankly, irrelevant. We’re all going to be stuck at home, going a bit crazy, and in need of some distractions.
It is my pleasure to introduce you to Cabin Fever, a diary on the coronavirus pandemic. You can find it, and the first post, below.
With Cabin Fever, I’m going to write regular blogs that will not only act as a journal of developments during the pandemic, but hopefully alleviate some of the relentless boredom that comes from being stuck at home. It will contain a lot of my day-to-day thoughts, which will hopefully be funny, alarming, or a combination of both.
You can sign up to follow the blog much like Between the Lines – just follow this link at the top right-hand corner of the page.
I really hope you enjoy it. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with me with any suggestions on topics, discussions or ways to improve it.
As ever, stay safe, stay sanitised, and all of my best wishes go to you and your loved ones.
