Due to the coronavirus, UK nationals are being warned to get out of China “any way we can”. I’ll tell you one way we can’t, and that’s British Airways, who canceled flights over a week ago.
BA are about as useful as an iconic Blue Passport, they might make you feel warm, cozy, and British, but both are about as much use as tits on a goldfish.
As to how to get out of China? The amount of flights and indeed borders on offer to us is dwindling, and dwindling quickly. Perhaps Mr. Raab will arrange to airlift me from my rented apartment. I’ve sent him my address, just waiting for a reply.
As of today, there are 491 confirmed deaths, and whilst it’s going up every day, there are 1.3 billion people in China. Yet it seems as everyone abandons us, we are about to become the world’s largest leper’s colony.
I’m not sure if I’ll stick it out, or try to make a dash, but it won’t be based on anything coming from Her Majesties Government.
See you on the other side, maybe, hopefully, but who knows. It is certainly seeming like someone somewhere knows something they aren’t sharing.
