If you’ve ever witnessed life in a large argumentative family, there will eventually be someone who will shout ‘Just stop it will you!?’ This is how many readers are feeling right now with the endless arguments relating to all things COVID. We are exhausted and want our beloved Echo paper back.
There are so many other issues to explore; climate change, species extinction, plastic pollution, human rights, fossilised energy policies, just to name a few. And keep an eye on what our government is doing whilst we are all so distracted!
To The Echo, thanks for presenting such informed reason and rationale. If people haven’t got it now, they never will! COVID doesn’t care what people think. A ‘public health order’ is simply and exactly that! Public = everyone, Health = the health of all, Order = It’s compulsory!
These inconvenient rules are recommended by experts to actually protect us from the virus. Their expertise should be celebrated and we should follow their advice! Many things in life are controlled legally for good reason. We might not agree with it all, but you simply have to get on with it.
So to The Echo and its readers, I say STOP, take a breather and select a new cause to champion for the greater good and/or the planet. There’s plenty to choose from!
