@GeorgeMonbiot In these circumstances, we the people have almost no power. Our anger mounts with each #corruption and every #incompetence, our grief swells with the disastrous death toll - but we feel impotent to do anything. This is our #democracy at work.
@GeorgeMonbiot There are examples around the world of good practice in beating the virus, but our *government* fails to follow this good practice. Their failure leads to the tragic, catastrophic loss of life; to the overwhelming of the NHS, already seriously underfunded...
@GeorgeMonbiot ... through the last decade; and to the trashing of livelihoods already under the gravest of stresses from a reckless Brexit. The economy is in freewill.
It feels as if the choices our *leaders* make wilfully ignore the good practice of other nations. In these circumstances...
@GeorgeMonbiot ...is it possible we can turn to the law to help us channel our anger?
I've been tweeting about #negligentmanslaughter , don't even know if it's a thing, but it seems appropriate.
Whatever happens, we must never lose our anger. That would just let them off the hook.

Can we stop and think about the violence in London (and in Sheffield) today.
While I agree it's far from acceptable, we may also want to delve a bit deeper.
And of course, I may be entirely wrong, and the violence may indeed be violence for violence' sake from a bunch of (mainly) men for who violence is first choice of means of expression. (If so, there's a whole bunch of psychological unpacking to do there, too). 2/
Many have noted these men may well be from the same cohort that voted Brexit, as one of the very rare opportunities they have of hurting the establishment. (Hint - it doesn't, far from it, if JRM is anything to go by.) 3/
