Desultory Heroics

India is currently witnessing a COVID-19 surge of unprecedented proportions, with an allegedly triple-mutant strain stretching the nation’s healthcare infrastructure to the limits. The uncertainty hanging over the nation is compounded by viral despatches of dead bodies piling up in morgues; of people dropping dead in the streets; of despondent souls jumping off their balconies; and of funeral pyres all over the country. There will be no public service-minded Big Tech censorship in this instance.

This is supposedly Wuhan 2.0. Any social media addict would be forgiven for thinking that India’s population of 1.3 billion might suffer a dip before the year is out.

AFTER 8 months of emails, I received £585 back from the £860 paid

THIS was paid by a venture capital company, who had bought up loveholidays, presumably at the cheapest price as effectively insolvent due to CVIRUS .

So venture capital will have benefited millions from such deductions and a knock down acquisition caused by poltics

So how many companies and mendacious profit can be made from regular transfer and removal to green list ?

As no option but to book green list contries.

Until max thrived from customers, for future control of foreign holidays by venture capital corporations ?

Who will be next to be bought – jet 2, tui ,and travel agencies who might have survived ?

Resulting in huge rip off and a few totally in control monopoly providers.

No choice , and dodgy holidays,
