    Let's get the ball rolling...

    "The next 2-weeks are vital..."

    "We'll get through this..."

    "New normal"

    ...and the pièce de résistance:

    "Wet pubs"

    This isn't us - except, this is us

    My/Your 5 km

    Mobility data shows.....blah blah, cause for concern

    That's not an essential journey

    I suppose it'd be too negative to be honest and tell the truth that it's ANTI-SOCIAL Distancing they want ?


    Men, it has been well said, think in herds; it will be seen that they go mad in herds, while they only recover their senses slowly, and one by one.

    Charles Mackay (1812-1889)

    "We're all in this together"

    "2 weeks to flatten the curve"

    "Hold the line."

    "Stay at home or you'll kill Granny"

    "Together. Apart"

    "we must keep sacrificing" {for the greater good}

    I think that's all of them. This is what Western politics and governance has turned into. Mentally weak man children making cheezy catch phrases for ass pats and trending on social media instead of actually governing.

    “Global” pandemic

    “Ramp up”

    “Roll out”

    The worst by a mile, only wet pubs come close in my opinion.......”staycation”

    “We’ll be swimming in vaccines by Q2....”
