Is it just me who feels like she’s living in some sort of sinister movie right now?  A strange and deadly virus envelops the world amidst a mass of confusion about its voracity and conflicting approaches to its management.  Countries heading into complete lockdown with borders closed, cities relegated to ghost towns, people isolated, and warnings of police being given emergency powers to use “reasonable force” against any person who refuses to quarantine or be tested.  Added to this the extraordinary behaviour of those people who are panic buying in obscene bulk, and you’d be forgiven for being nervous about the apparent weakness in the fabric of our societies.

I started my hashtag #strongertogether in 2018 - well I have to admit I “adopted” it because needless to say (and at the time unbeknownst to me) it already existed elsewhere in many different contexts, particularly around areas such as sport and broader diversity issues. I’m certainly not precious or territorial about its use.
