Day 7: Schools Back In

The MCR decided to break ranks late last night. The local Czar, let’s call her Addis, told her boss, Rupert that she was going to take schools offline as Addis has probably Googled things a bit more than Rupert. However, Rupert got rather cross again and today, Addis has rolled over and asked the citizens to tickle her belly.

On one hand, schools stay open: because there’s no proof (that which the CMO accepts exists) that children are vectors for the virus at school or on public transport. However, if they are left to wander the empty shopping centers or use a trampoline ” they are a massive problem. Almost as big a “pain in the arse” as when they take it upon themselves to climate strike.

In addition, Rupert incouraged True Martians to be True Martians last week and that he himself was off to the footy. This appears to have back-fired as True Martians buggered off to the beach or enjoyed a latte in active wear at the local cafe.

It turns out that Rupert didn’t mean this at all. When his people told him what was happening, he got cross and yelled “stop it” at some reporters – one of whom insisted on asking questions and not allowing Rupert to use the presser as another monologue — which these days feels longer than being in Spanish quarantine.

Anyway, that’s whats happening on the popular Martian syndicated show “S.O.A.P” and teachers – yep, you guessed it, teachers are back at work with no PPE or advisory on what’s going on.

Of course there is rumored panic in the MCR Command that feckless teachers can’t be remotely trusted to work from home un-supervised for 365 days. This is the exact number of days Rupert says is needed (some voices told him it seems) if people continue to be naughty and do what he says, or not do what he says …. yes folks, it’s very confusing.

My guess is that the MCR will make teachers work over the ‘traditional break’ which was never a really a break – that is just what feckless leftie teachers have been saying it is – and they are not proper Martians. The MCR will come up with some pre-existing ‘notional’ plan where in work hours and days are flexible in their favour.

So schools in: kids rolled up to class as usual – flooding out of trains where they have NOT BEEN incubating ANY FLU LIKE nasties for an hour or so. They head off to play handball, hug each other and do things that kids do when not staring at their iPonies.

And the news from the MCR this morning: noting, naaada, zip.

More news later,
