It was a year ago today that the first lockdown was introduced in an address to the nation by the Prime Minister. The day-to-day mundane routine associated with lockdown tends to bring forth sometimes undue excitement at any event remotely out of the ordinary; something to do with nature abhorring a vacuum. Thus, the announcement of ‘Tax Day’ has been hailed in some quarters as the most exciting thing since Wile E Coyote finally caught the Road Runner and had him for breakfast (OK, possibly that didn’t really happen).
