RIOTERS COVER ALL BASES
As I watched news of this week’s riots in Belfast, my first thought was jealousy – at least they were getting out and meeting people.
But we have to hope the rioters were observing the rules we’ve all been sticking to.
It was encouraging to see most of them wearing masks.
Paramilitary groups in Northern Ireland have been ahead of the game on this issue. They were always careful to wear thick face coverings long before the rest of us joined in. I expect that because of
this, members of the UVF and IRA have had far fewer colds and sniffles over the years than other people, and I think we should give credit where it’s due – to their commitment to public health.
