There is no doubt that the pandemic has claimed a lot of lives and that is absolutely tragic; let there be a vaccine soon.
I can only speak for what I see and that is that “Corporate Britain” is taking advantage of this tragedy.
Take a pizza. A medium sized pizza with delivery will now cost you roughly £20; daylight robbery but we all have little choice.
The likes of Just Eat and Deliveroo are absolutely raking it in.
In fact, it is not restricted to pizzas, not by a long chalk because all of the food outlets seem to have hiked up their prices.
But it goes further. Courier companies blame Covid for all of the delays but they are using Covid to make more money or to save it. Delivery times have slipped by many days and there is no real reason for it.
Amazon UK, even on prime, tend to take a few extra days to deliver goods and that saves them money.
Everyone in society seems to be profiteering from this tragedy and quite frankly my friends, that sickens me.
Does it not sicken you too?
