The `New` normal, is it too late?


Recommended Posts

Just one week left before the government needs to review the 6 month implementation period of The Coronavirus Act 2020...originally deemed a temporary measure.

Question...looking at how society, peoples behaviour and acceptance of adjustments to their personal liberty has changed in the last six months, is it too late to return to the `Old` normal?

3 month extension is baked in.

Rolling, for years.

Yeah right. Only 6 months until the emergency measure of income tax expires. We will all have so much more money to spend!

Unless they renew it for another year... 221 straight years of emergency. What are the odds?

We are paying that tax to fight the French. I want the bloody war I am paying for!

Why would people object? A lot of them have never had so much money and free time.

This.

The Belfast property market hit new highs over the pandemic period.

It looks to me like a lot of the sales are folk who got 6 months paid leave to renovate their houses, then put them on the market at a huge markup.

Heard a reliable report from an EA of 60 viewings and 10 people bidding on a house that was, in my opinion, nothing special.

Most people think the government will pay for everything, forever. This attitude is particularly prevalent in NI. Many who are already getting loads from the government, or at the very least contribute nothing in tax, complain the loudest they aren't being given enough.

Why would they want this to end?
