Nothing To Do With Brexit – Dutch Can’t Deliver Cardboard Boxes Either

cardboard

Reading Time: 2 minutes Frustrating, isn’t it? How a tiny little virus gets the better of a cardboard box containing a pair of tennis shoes. The problem is that the sports shop only worked online and there was no possibility for me to drive there, park my car in a non-viral parking space, and collect the parcel whilst wearing […]

Monty Python’s Flying Virus

Reading Time: 3 minutes How can I not comment on the brilliance of the Dutch and UK government’s strides against a tiny little virus that’s causing more mayhem than Theresa May and David Cameron ever dreamed of; and Donald Trump’s infection with a mutant coronavirus that makes you look and feel 20 years younger without the need to quarantine.

Zijn hele liberale, gemoedelijke kijk op de wereld wordt bevroren door een virus dat zelfs kleiner is dan de kleinste virussen. In antwoord op een vraag of tandartsen hun praktijk konden openen, antwoordde Rutte neerbuigend dat tandartspraktijken altijd open mochten […]
