Day 71 – is this helping ?

At the moment social media and the newspapers are seized by the great Cummings affair. Should he have gone out or shouldn’t he? And yet all through this coronavirus crisis Sainsburys have pushed out their regular emails about their weekly offers. No caveats about not going out, or social distancing if you must. Nor any recognition that many of us could not take advantage of these offers if we wanted to because there is not a branch of Sainsburys near enough to get to, or which does deliveries. If someone were to succumb to one of these offers and go out when strictly speaking they shouldn’t, who would be to blame – the individual for giving in to temptation, or Sainsbury’s for putting temptation in people’s way ?
