It’s hard to have sympathy with people who took a chance Stranger things keep your distance shirt and now are whinging about the unpleasant journey home. I don’t think the BBC should be running this story. It’s very divisive. Perhaps these folks should have returned sooner, entitlement must suck. Sometimes, we have to take responsibility for our own actions instead of blaming the government, least of all during a crisis. We were in India beginning of March and were offered to get out before the shutdown we cut short our once in a lifetime holiday and came home these people would have known about the shutdown and chose to stay why should the tax payer fund their return.
If I knew an earthquake or a massive hurricane was going to hit Stranger things keep your distance shirt, one would have cut his holiday short and returned to the UK safely. Most tourist just ignored the impending danger. The whole world was buzzing about the impending danger. Many now blame the Government for their own inaction to immediately vacate. It’s hard not to see them as entirely selfish. I brought myself home in time because I realised it was going to be a problem did not rely on the government.
