Do As I Say Not As I Do

 

‘Rules for thee but not for me’.   The response of public health officials and governments to the COVID-19 pandemic has been confusing and harsh.  Yet for the most part, the people have done their best to comply to rules that seem, at best, late and otherwise, arbitrary.

 

The people reasonably expect government representatives and public health officials to practice what they preach.

 

So when government representatives and public health officials are caught breaking the rules, especially rules for which they personally advocated, there results a flurry of criticism that often leads to the perpetrator’s early retirement.  Here are some examples.
