“Too scary to imagine”
So the winter is fast approaching. The battlefield of the hospitality sector is strewn with lost business, businesses barely able to crawl their way back to the trenches , illegal operators scavenging off the dark side of a population that have seen all normal life disappear.
The hospitality sector is so fearful of next year that most of us simply keep it from our minds, I mean literally nobody knows what to do, when to do it or if they will ever be allowed back to full trading .
For those who risked everything to go over the top and on to the quagmire of barbed wire and strafing fire they are now left with not even a hope of making it home.
Shell shocked to say the least, stunned in disbelief, left with poor to no support and never knowing for sure how long this battle will continue when will support as it is now simply not be there anymore .
The smell of anarchy is in the air now, the smell of fallout is around us, the signs are beginning to immerge.
Our commanders have sat in their tents in complete comfort not losing anything and giving very little, no plan, no fresh ideas, no hope other than to go through this stop start, lose lose and recently all in the hope that “we can have a good Christmas” knowing that if we do have a good Christmas and try to enjoy life without any new plans or ideas will face the a new year of further full lock downs.
Who’s is right who is wrong, those of us who break rank are wrong as we only put our fellow fighters in more jeopardy.
The so called commanders are paid to lead us they have all the support they need and even have the support of most of the ordinary foot soldiers so they are wrong – Can anyone see what they have done to improve anything since the brave ( maybe foolish ) few came out of the trenches? I can’t!
It may come down to looking for leadership elsewhere, leadership that may “get it right “.
For those of you that have never had to be concerned about getting on to that battlefield or ending up on the battlefield be careful and endeavour to assist the fallen or you may be remembered for all time as those that “didn’t care “.
