Editor’s comment


Seriously, this COVID thing is getting a bit old now – much like my good self. I celebrated my 46th birthday recently, in what I can only describe as a completely modern fashion. I didn’t see any friends, didn’t go to the pub, and didn’t actually celebrate. Is this the modern birthday? Perhaps it’s part of what is annoyingly referred to as ‘the new normal’. And you have to use inverted commas on it, or it’s just not the new normal. I mean just not the ‘new normal’. Oh crap, does it have the ‘the’ in the commas or not? I’ve opened a signifi cant can of worms here. Sod it. The world continues to be a bit nuts, but there are signs of


green shoots here and there. UK casinos have been let down badly by the government – not because they were told they couldn’t reopen when originally stated, but rather because if it’s safe enough to open a pub, it’s signifi cantly safer to open a casino. More staff, better supervision, hell – better behaviour. But no. We got relegated to the naughty corner by a government which has written – Memento-style – all over its body so it can tell its arse from its elbow. Much love to you. Hang in there.
