No you don't what?

Controlling people's lives, throwing millions out of work, wrecking thousands of small businesses, telling folk they can't leave their homes, shutting down schools for months, telling them they can't see their families for many a long month, trapping and isolating old people in care homes*, threatening the mental health of millions... Yep, it's all about "helping" people, innit...

*Yep, I'm biased. Since early March and through to late October I saw my profoundly deaf mum just a handful of times through a perspex screen. Before that I used to go to her room in the home to sit with her four or five times a week, and I'd take her out for drives and shopping and cups of tea. At least I was allowed to be at her side in hospital as she died.

I don't want to be in a world that thinks it's fine to treat people like this.
