What Should We Believe??

Updated: Aug 2, 2020


In the wake of the pandemic that has gripped the world, there has been alot of uncertainty and fear mongering going on with the help of social media apps, so in order to combat this they have had to go as far as restricting how many times messages can be shared at one time, due to the surge of fake news being circulated by numerous people claiming to be 'experts', and always posses insider knowledge into what exactly is going on. It's also alleged that 'crisis actors' have been used in order to stir up even more fear from an unsuspecting public. Crisis actors are usually implemented in times of great emergency and their role can either been to try and reassure the people that things are not as bad as they may appear or to make things look worse than what they are.


But those most at risk from death via CV-19 seems to shift from week to week as at first it was the elderly and those suffering from respiratory issues, then it was BAME groups and now we're being told it's the obese who are at the top of the hit list.


Fighting The Fat


So in able to reinforce the governments latest findings they are trying to fight the fat, one thing the PM announced was the cancellation of two for one deals on junk food in supermarkets as well as giving their accompanying ads for said foods a watershed beginning from 9pm, but with this initiative the powers that be are in direct contradiction of themselves as in July they announced the Eat Out to Help Out Scheme in which from the 3rd to 31st of August, you can get a 50% discount when you eat at restaurants that are registered with the scheme. The Gov.UK website outlines the details of the deal as;


Use the Eat Out to Help Out Scheme at a participating establishment:


-To get a 50% discount on food or non-alcoholic drinks to eat or drink in (up to a maximum of £10 discount per diner)


-Every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday between 3 and 31 August as many times as you like

-You do not need a voucher to use this scheme and you can use it at the same time as other offers and discounts. There is no minimum spend.


So now those in charge are showing concern in regards with health of the nation, despite many fast food restaurants taking advantage of the offer as well as the fact that gymnasiums, leisure centres and swimming pools were among some of the last establishments to be reopened post lockdown. So is it a case of trying to save face? As looking like your doing something can often be seen as better than doing nothing.


But the question remains what should we believe? As BAME groups are still being blamed for not adhering to social distancing measures according to MP Craig Whittaker, Although the facts show that it isn't these groups packing out the beaches and other large areas open to the public, so are certain ethnic groups being used as scapegoats once again?

So remember not every pill should be swallowed and only believe half of what you see and none of what you hear.
