Do masks really save lives?
Each individual should be allowed to make that decision.
There is no law that says the state can make you wear a mask.
Once liberty is taken away, it's awful hard to get it back.
See Cuba or Venezuela or Red China!

'So I went to the past and the future
And spent time with strangers and friends
And I wrote it all down in a big black book
And only I will know the day that it ends'
This struck deep Ian. More than simply weaving your words, this whole piece transcends the current pandemic and has a timeless feel. Nearer the summit of the mountain than most. 👍👍

Greetings Isobel - according to proverbs, it is human nature to find fresh cause for optimism - however if I were a submariner held fast on the ocean bed I would probably have cracked up long before the air supply gave out, as in the recent case of the Russian Sub, Kirsk.
Not that I could ever have had the nerve to go down in one myself - being rather fearful of them. I did manage a quick look round one once, many years ago in the port of Liverpool - finding it all rather too spooky for my liking.
Yours is a good read nevertheless. P

Beats laying back and looking at the ceiling then just having fag after.

Hi Tim - I was at a neighbouring central London station but would occasionally be required to perform "aid" to other stations, one of
which was Paddington Green. However, it's unlikely I was involved
in your own recollections. Speaking from my own knowledge and
experience, I can say that, if anything, the behaviour and
forbearance from those with whom I worked towards those met
in the course of that work was almost saintly, considering the
provocation, threat and actual reality of physical attack from those dealt with on any given tour of duty, often under intense pressure..
Drunks, often well-known locals, were a particular problem, not
least because of their unpredictability, but also because their
self-inflicted condition could hide underlying issues that could
be threats to health - and these can be found in reports of those
reported to die in custody. I could describe saving some of those
lives but will leave it there. Remember one thing - any officer
who courts trouble is no friend to his/her colleagues for obvious
reasons - and is soon made aware of that fact. Finally, it would be
fiction to say I never had the need to step in when things got
"heated" in certain instances but that was part of my job and I'm
more than willing to testify that it was a rare necessity among the
thousands who passed through the charge room in any given year.

An extended "thank you" to all who have made the comments now seen. It is now understood that a collective letter - with a reported
150 signatures from luminaries from across the public life spectrum,
taking issue with the one-way direction of what is "acceptable" in
commenting on public interest matters - is now in the public domain.
And that it has received objections to what it represents. But at least
it is a two-way process - just as it should be!
A closing two line personal observation:
It's an affront to thought and common sense
To pick and choose those allowed to take offence
Thu 9th Jul 2020 15:35

Sadness overwhelms me as I read this Izzy.
The drug-infused confused and delusion states of mind. creates within us...
'From experience' ... An inability to actualise knowledge, perception and intuition.
In laymen's terms, the inability to discern reality from the drug-fuelled frenzy and hallucinations that always lead us away from the truth.
Especially and more potently when we are actually 'seeking' ethereal and esoteric realities and worlds.
A superb piece of poetry!

Couldn't agree more. Think everyone has gone mad, and that anything and everything can be seen as being offensive in the present state of mind. If I am offered a black pair of jeans in a shop, and say I want blue, I don't like black, I could be labelled racist.
