WITH a clear, common sense exit plan in place, things will gradually get back to normal. Right? Apart from these minor issues:
You will be kept at work
Once you return to work, you will not be allowed to leave. The economy will soon be back on its feet thanks to the economic benefits of slavery. You will eat from the vending machines and your new wife is the Red Dwarf-obsessed IT support guy.
Kids run wild
Buoyed by the news that a real-life Lord of the Flies went fine, children will be set free to roam the country in ragged packs having adventures. In theory. In practice they will be all at home on devices, like now.
The cyborg initiative
In a project born in a Dominic Cummings ‘blue skies’ brainstorming session, all Britons will be converted into cyber-people immune to any virus apart from the ILOVEYOU worm. Download your mind onto your desktop and back it up on a USB if you want any chance of remembering who you once were.
Walking is the future
According to Boris Johnson, walking will become everyone’s new commute so now everyone must walk like frustrated motorists. Get right up someone’s arse all the time, walk in front of people randomly and give them the finger, and ‘park’ badly by lying spreadeagled on the pavement for a nap.
Like PPE, the NHS is single-use. After this it’s done. It’ll be replaced with a private insurance system that will be perfectly affordable as long as you never get ill.
Feudalism and serfdom
Idiots criticise feudalism as a model for a modern society. But what if you owned your own castle? You maybe could, and B&Q could start selling MDF castellations.
