Now where have we encountered this before. As recently as, oh, 2020.
In a foreign country, a ba-ad situation is developing. There's no reason to believe we in the UK are immune from it. Many of the same factors prevail here, too. It's on our screens, every day and every night. Hmm, we think, perhaps it won't spread to here - not to the good old United Kingdom ...
Boris doesn't seem to think so either (to the extent he ever engages his brain). At least, not so you'd notice.
Are any preparations being laid on just in case it does, though?
