During the lockdown in England, there has been a steady stream of cartoons and comments appearing on my mobile telephone and computer – most of them emanating from family members but shared on a wider basis. One of the most recent of these stated the following:
“The lockdown will have demonstrated three things:
Our economy collapses as soon as it stops selling useless stuff to over-indebted people.
It is perfectly possible to greatly reduce pollution.
The lowest paid people in the country are the most essential to its functioning.”
