British Conservative Cummings, poor people and COVID-19


This 24 May 2020 satiric music video from Britain about the adviser of British Conservative Prime Minister Boris Johnson is called Dominic Cummings – Driving Home for COVID.

It is a parody of the song Driving Home for Christmas by Chris Rea.

It says about itself:

Dominic Cummings is driving home for COVID-19.

LYRICS:

I’m driving home for COVID
Oh, I can’t wait to just get loaded
Driving home for COVID, yeah
Dance to ABBA, drink some wine

Got this nagging cough
But I will be there
I’ll shake it off
Stop at the Welcome Break
Grab some Benylin
Driving home for COVID

260 miles, but I’ll get there

Top-to-toe in dead cats
Bamboozling you with 5D chess
Soon there’ll be a fuckup, yeah
To distract from the previous mess

Now I’m driving back
To London, but I
I will return
Return to Durham
Driving with my COVID

This 24 May 2020 video is from in front of Dominic Cummings´ house.

Jaywick‘s fight: Community support in one of UK’s poorest towns

While towns and cities across the United Kingdom struggle with the effect of the new coronavirus, one of the poorest places is coping with the pandemic.

Jaywick made international headlines when the United Nations highlighted it as an example of how the British government has failed to deal with poverty.

Al Jazeera’s Laurence Lee reports from Jaywick in the UK.

  1. President Oostenrijk ver na sluitingstijd in de kroeg

    De Oostenrijkse president Van der Bellen en zijn vrouw zijn in verlegenheid gebracht, doordat politieagenten hen ruim na sluitingstijd hebben aangetroffen in een kroeg. Het presidentiële paar zat om 00.20 uur nog met drankjes op tafel te praten, terwijl de horeca in Oostenrijk op grond van de coronamaatregelen om 23.00 uur al moet sluiten.

    Van der Bellen erkent dat hij het laat had gemaakt en verklaarde tegenover de krant Kronen Zeitung dat hij al pratend de tijd was vergeten.

    Het hoge (en late) bezoek kan de eigenaar van de bewuste kroeg overigens duur komen te staan: cafés die na 23.00 uur nog open zijn, kunnen tot 30.000 euro boete krijgen. Officieel was de bar overigens wel dicht. Van der Bellen trekt in de Kronen Zeitung het boetekleed aan. “Het spijt me oprecht. Het was een fout”, zegt hij.
