Only direct action by the public against the petty fascists enforcing unconstitutional restrictions can stop them. A few beatings, perhaps an ‘unfortunate’ death or two, bricks through windows, burnt out cars &c are quite likely to encourage some self-restraint in our now over-mighty servants.

Impotent rage is useless, action is required.

Wow. I’m stunned. My Labour MP (who previously said she voted for lockdown in line with her party) has now voted against the tiers. Guess she was a bit miffed her constituency falls in tier 3.

My Tory MP voted against the lockdown but voted for the Tier system ,I sent him a nice email 1st time looks like the 2nd won’t be the same , he’s the MP of that notorious Covid hotbed of Swale so maybe he was whipped into an aye vote

It’s all the fault of ‘those people’ on ‘The Island’ of course! Remind him what happened in the local elections (here in Faversham too, thrillingly!). That was just Brexit not the economic destruction of the whole country.

279495 ▶▶▶▶▶▶ tonyspurs, replying to Jonathan Palmer, 4, #25 of 2196 🔗

Yeah they did a couple of testing stations as far as I’m aware ,the boys told me people were flocking there so they could say I’ve got Covid ..it’s not called The Island of Sheep for nothing

The Isle of Wight is in Tier 1

Good question, I thought they were talking about Swaledale in Yorkshire but I think they might be talking about The Borough of Swale in Kent and The Isle of Sheppey … but if someone can confirm it.

279600 ▶▶▶▶▶▶ tonyspurs, replying to LS99, 3, #31 of 2196 🔗

Yes it’s the Isle of Sheppey Kent’s only Sunshine Isle haha
Sheppey is derived from Old English Sceapig, meaning “Sheep Island”.

279433 ▶▶ Barney McGrew, replying to Cristi.Neagu, 7, #33 of 2196 🔗

Guess she was a bit miffed her constituency falls in tier 3.

Quite possibly, but wouldn’t that, in fact, be a logical inconsistency? If you are genuinely scared of the virus, you would simply want your constituents to be ‘safe’ at the appropriate level of ‘tier’. And in such a case, wouldn’t you be implicitly declaring that you trust the government scientists?

If you are miffed at being placed in tier 3, doesn’t this mean you no longer trust SAGE and their ‘science’? Or maybe you think the government are, for some reason, insincere in what they are doing. In which case, why believe ANYTHING that these people say? If you are miffed at tier 3, shouldn’t the whole thing fall apart in front of your eyes?

279719 ▶▶▶ GCarty80, replying to Barney McGrew, 1, #34 of 2196 🔗

Two possibilities:

  1. She wants her area (and possibly other tier 3 areas) to get more money from the Treasury, or
  2. She’d rather that the full lockdown be extended.

I think I disagree. The phrase “lions led by donkeys” from World War 1 is applicable here, I think. And lots of the really high rankers are political animals as well. Besides, the squaddies have to obey their senior officer, however dumb he/she is.

279567 ▶▶ CGL, replying to Cristi.Neagu, 6, #45 of 2196 🔗

3 points about that apart from the ridiculous put down of anyone who is on the internet not having been to university-
1. Carl Heneghan would not be interested in the corruption and cronyism of anything involving politics or politicians I wouldnt think
2. He is only interested in evidence which is clearly at odds with SAGE
3. This idiot says the government is trying to get the evidence together – so what the hell are they basing the decisions they are already making on – the evidence should already be there to present.

279918 ▶▶▶ Anne Passman, replying to Llamasaurus Rex, 5, #48 of 2196 🔗

So email him, telling him. I have. If you are not his constituent, he won’t reply, but sure as hell his SPAD/ secretary/ sidekick will tell him about the flak if we make enough. Same for Johnson, Hancock, Vallance, Whitty. Their emails are out there – give them hell. Gum up their in boxes. Call them liars etc. And all it takes is a few minutes of your time. Oh, and send the odd email to an anti-tier MP – praise them – they need to be bolstered.

281080 ▶▶▶▶ Llamasaurus Rex, replying to Anne Passman, #49 of 2196 🔗

279896 ▶▶ Anne Passman, replying to Cristi.Neagu, 7, #51 of 2196 🔗

I have just listened to it and sent him an email as I was listening. maybe one of the things we need to do is to deluge anti-tier MPs with praise and those who voted for them with disgust, contempt, anger, detailed figures, telling them to read the GBD etc. How he can dismiss Gupta, Lee, Henegan etc as “not being on SAGE”. If you are not an MPs constituent they will generally not answer you, but I’m sure their SPADs report on the flak. So give them some. Do the same to Johnson, Hancock, Vallance and Whitty – their email addresses are out there. Call them liars. Call them inhuman. Hold them responsible for the deaths, bankruptcies, mental health problems, child abuse, that have taken place under their despotism. There is another way – until they take it, try to make their lives as much hell as they have for the thousands of businesses who are going bust.
Show no mercy. They deserve none

Response to usual BS email from Helen Whately explaining why the whole of Kent must be incarcerated (unsurprisingly she’d like to remain a Minister of State).

Depressing ascientific gobbledegook unsurprisingly. There is no evidence (despite Prof. Ferguson’s laughable efforts) to show that the interventions have achieved anything. If anything the mask mandate seems to have coincided with a surprising (for summer) increase in fatal COVID-19 infections.

What you describe as ‘cases’ are positive PCR test results, most of which are false positives as the LFT work in Liverpool demonstrated (attached).

When you meet the Prime Minister in the lobby ask him what results the Carthaginians achieved by sacrificing even their own children to Baal Hammon.

(Attached was Craig, Engler, Yeadon and McNeill’s Briefing for MPs, inserted into the email was a screen shot of the final slide from Ivor Cummins podcast linked yesterday). The slide (showing coincidence with minimum fatal infections of the mask mandate) made me laugh at first but it seems there may be a genuine effect!

279422 ▶▶ annie, replying to Nigel Sherratt, 13, #53 of 2196 🔗

Carthage was destroyed and the ruins ploughed into the ground and salted. But you can still see, on the site, the remains of a ‘tophet’ in which children were burned alive.

The zombies are throwing Britain’s children into the metaphorical flames.
Delenda est haec administratio.

279436 ▶▶▶ Nigel Sherratt, replying to annie, 6, #54 of 2196 🔗

The detail that struck me (a mere engineer and not a classical scholar unlike the dPPE) was the Carthaginian aristos buying poor children to sacrifice but finally realising that Baal Hammon was displeased and sacrificing even more of their own children to placate him/ze/it.

Possibly all Roman black propaganda of course!

279932 ▶▶▶ Anne Passman, replying to annie, 2, #55 of 2196 🔗

I’ll go with the Latin. Dulce et decorum est per patria scrivere. Email them. Their email addresses are out there. Tell them how you feel. Tell them to read the GBD. Call them liars. OK, so if you are not their constituent they will at best send you an automated response, but I’m sure their hired hands report back on the flak they’re getting. So give them plenty. Gum up their in boxes with facts, details, etc. and hassle them – they’ve made our lives unbearable for the past 8 months – give it back in spades.

From the article ‘A day in the life of a Covid19 Physician’
When Nortumbrian Nomad first posted that link two days ago ze 😉 included the attached quote about hancock.

One of my first posts on LS, in May I think, recalled how under a Blair government there was a bad flu year that some of the press were getting excited about.
Blair appointed a Flu Tzar ‘to crack some heads in the NHS and get it sorted’.

Two weeks later the Flu Tzar was all over the media claiming success in beating the virus.

I mentioned this to a senior medic who replied “That’s a load of nonsense, we got over the worst a month ago and the numbers were going down before he was appointed.”

I suggested at the time that they might repeat this sleight of hand but never did I believe they would spin it out for the best part of a year.

279855 ▶▶▶▶ Matt The Cat, replying to Biker, 5, #60 of 2196 🔗

Same here, Bikey. My mother was, up until recently, like me. No-nonsense and not fooled by anything/anyone. I don’t know what happened but she’s now a prize, “Grade A” bedwetter – as is “Pater”, in fact, and they’ve completely lost me.

I know it sounds like a terrible thing to say but I’ve said it here before – they’re living a living death thanks to swallowing the Branch Covidian’s propaganda hook, line and sinker – and I really couldn’t care less whether they live or die.

I only see them about 3 times a year. Me and Mrs Cat are visiting them at the weekend for what’s laughingly known as our “Family Christmas”.

I’ve already been told to keep my mouth shut whilst there. Everyone who knows me would know THAT ain’t gonna happen!

Should be “fun”, eh? 🙁

A medically qualified relative of my sister in law earned a significant amount of money that winter selling a prepaid queue-jumping service to get priority access to Tamiflu when the expected Bird Flu epidemic arrived in the UK. As we know, it never did, but he still pocketed the money, despite never having had to actually buy the medication. As always, there’s a lot of money to be made out of these scares.

Easy for Pr ofessor Ramesh Thakur to advocate voluntary arrest from his academic ivory tower. For those of us in the real world with proper jobs and actual mouths to feed, a criminal record could – and would, in this day and age – not only lead to swift dismissal but permanent unemployment. Exactly the reason why I have stayed away from the demos, much as they have my whole-hearted support.

279424 ▶▶ annie, replying to Digital Nomad, 7, #66 of 2196 🔗

279492 ▶▶ Eliza P., replying to Digital Nomad, 7, #67 of 2196 🔗

I can certainly see the point and agree in principle with “fill the jails” and am personally free to do so if I choose (being retired – I don’t have to worry about doing a job for my income) but I admit to concern whether we’d be put in with/treated the same way as the criminals that are already in the jail. So I admit to personal qualms as to whether I’d be expected to mix with criminals or would be able to have a cell to myself etc/my sort of food at mealtimes (healthy vegetarian), etc. So not a problem re my income – but I admit to wimping out of the thought of mixing with prisoners/eating unhealthy food/etc. I’m struggling at being in the prison of “open prison in a small town – and no car to get out of it” as it is I admit.

279945 ▶▶ Anne Passman, replying to Digital Nomad, 1, #68 of 2196 🔗

I agree, if a court appearance would affect your job, you shouldn’t risk it. But although I’m retired and therefore don’t have employment I still have email. So email Stewart, telling hi how stupid he sounded, how illogical, how biased. Email any MP you can- their email addresses are out there. Sure, if you are not a constituent they will send you an automatic response, but I’m sure they have a sidekick who tells them of the volume of emails they get, and if they’re negative ones It costs nothing but a few minutes -you can even have a template to use with relevant facts, details, insults etc. Call them liars – they can’t deny it. Call them inhuman, despotic etc – quote Graham Brady at them (his quote about “if this were a totalitarian state we would call these measures evil”.Deluge the pro – tierers with enough and they may get the mood of the country. And if they think enough of us will not vote to put them into their cushy jobs again they may take heed. Worth a try. And no police record, either

281068 ▶▶ Watt, replying to Digital Nomad, -1, #69 of 2196 🔗

This seems to be a tactic employed by the Environmental Health. When they can’t find anything to ‘get’ you on, they start questioning you closely as though intentionally trying to catch you out. I’ve often wondered whether this was in order to justify their jobs or if they are on some sort of commission.

There is in my opinion an upside to losing the Dolan case

I suspect that privately the pig dictator may have been harbouring hopes of a Dolan win

The pig dictator has been holding the highly infectious and distressed covid baby since March

The baby, as with all babies who are not well is getting fractious. The baby sleeps little and cries continuously

Starmer or anyone else will not take the baby. They say it’s your baby Mr pig dictator you brought it into the world, you deal with it

The pig dictator has responsibility for this very unhappy and demanding baby until at least March

The neighbours are starting to complain. The noise from the Christmas party goers in the street outside is also disturbing the pig dictator sleep

Yes, it’s the leader of the party who will be PM, however they go about sorting that out.

I will never vote Conservative again but for now we do need him removing. SAGE and the media have taken him captive. He doesn’t even know he’s doing the left’s work for them because he’s been so carefully steered into it. Add on the strings being pulled by his girlfriend towards a green agenda that none of us voted for and he is a dangerous fool.

And I have to ask: where did ‘Build Back Better’ come from? For there not to be anything in the ‘conspiracy theories’, we have to believe that the government saw this weird, awkward slogan being used by Joe Biden and others, and thought to itself “That’s just what we need. A recognised globalist slogan because we can’t actually think up our own even though it would only take about 30 seconds. This is perfect: it says ‘We are not an independent country; we are copying, or taking orders, from people outside our own country’. The people will be so impressed by that”.

It’s not a conspiracy. It’s a well prepared and coordinated AGENDA .

“Build back better” , “new normal” etc are all phrases from the WEF.

1) Johnson is deliberately trolling the nation. In particular, he’s winding up the kinds of people who worry about anti-democratic globalism, the kinds of people routinely mocked in the Graun. It’s a cheap form of bullying.
2) The regime would much rather hint at being part of a global conspiracy than admit to having screwed up through a complete absence of balls and brains. Better be taken for an evil genius than a fool.

In truth they’re not very clever. Wreaking more destruction because they can’t see a way to stop without admitting fault. Their pathway to glorious victory over Covid closing down (the vaccine, as predicted here, is not shaping up as happy ever after). The British state, in its entirety, has revealed itself to be a prize twot. But for most of them, like the bureaucracy of Vichy, there is a future after this. For Johnson this is it. No wonder he looks like Hitler in Downfall.

Looking through that document you link to, there’s nothing in it that says “We will destroy all small businesses, implement a form of UBI, and usher in a new form of eco-fascism”. It’s all fairly innocuous stuff, with deep ironies regarding increasing economic growth and strengthening of human rights, etc.

Is this the document we, as a country, are signed up to? Or is there another, more ‘Schwabbian’, radical, terrifying document that we have somehow agreed to, as well? Because if it’s only the former, then anything like Johnson seems to be suggesting (‘we cannot go back to the old normal’) is undemocratic and I would suggest, illegal.

The UN agenda 21/2030 is just the extension of the UN sustainability agenda/millennium development goals which you may be aware of , every politician since the early ‘90s has been on about it. The import thing to realise is not what they do say but what are the implications of what is said .
These are very sophisticated operators with huge power/finance/influence. The background of the UN is basically to creat a NWO and some kind of technocracy utopia. This is crazy sounding stuff which is why they are able to get away with developing their plans.
UN is an intergovt organisation
WEF is essentially an off shoot of the UN (schwab started there) under Robert Muller/ Maurice Strong) but it’s basically a structure to influence the private sector on a global scale.
WHO is an offshoot of UN
The main point is that behind the seemingly harmless facade of these main bodies the power plays and financial backing are able to create a tightly controlled agenda driven machine which now has influence at all levels of our and all societies.

The scope of interference by the UN is huge , please research into the ngo’s the UN funded projects eg smart cities ,sustainable cities , see how many local council leaders are on the bandwagons .

If you’ve never considered these issues before this can be too hard to accept but it’s true, it’s happening and if we aren’t careful there will be no way out.
Global warming was introduced by the Muller crowd to create a new religious fervour that would lead to the utopia. It didn’t work, covid/health fear is being used to corral people so the agendas can be brought to a conclusive point – 2030

There is a frightening mix of global financiers, utopian ideologs ,eugenicists and marxist zealots who are hell bent on reducing the bulk of humanity to totally controlled serfdom. (The one’s that survive the coming ordeals).

People need to understand this single fundamental point.

The UK is signatory to the IHR , as such we are at the whim of the WHO and this WILL NOT STOP until the WHO declares the “pandemic” is over.

It doesn’t matter who is in no. 10 . We have to continue following the national IPPP (influenza pandemic preparedness plan) until told to stop by the WHO.

It’s important to read the ippp along with knowing how it was drawn up and by who , the WHO direction on these matters is very illuminating.
As with all legislation in the UK , it gives the govt limitless scope to adapt to circumstances.
In theory a PM could try to water down the level of implementation of lockdowns etc, BUT, the legislature and civil service is basically determined to push the change agenda through.

This is a complete and total scam to drive through social change.
There is a mountain of evidence to support this position,not enough room here whole articles/books are required to tabulate the crime.

But for example :-
Please see the GPMB (global pandemic monitoring board) the head is Fauci. Report from Sept 2019 page 38/39 “a full system simulation will be undertaken by 09/2020….”

BBC R4 The Long View yesterday explored the similarities between this year and when the Protestants under Cromwell last banned Christmas. I was working at the time so missed much of it.

One of the guests compared todays medical establishment to the uber protestants who insisted on fasting not only for their own good but for that of the whole community.

Fasting meant not only avoiding food and drink but also parties, singing, “bodily delights”, going to the theatre, bawdy houses or taverns and flippant pastimes such as playing football, dicing and carding.

The government of the day passed the law banning Xmas partly because it needed the support of the Scots in the ongoing Civil War (cf sturgeon).
It resulted in widespread unrest notably in Canterbury (tier 3) and until its repeal following the Restoration was marked by increasing non observation by the merrymaking population.

I don’t remember it and neither do my parents. I was at primary school and the only reason that we might have worn masks (we didn’t) was to keep out the smell of the tannery downriver!
The difference was that, in those days, there was little obesity, self obsession and hypochondria. There were always housewives who were ‘bad with their nerves’ and had obsessions with ‘germs’ but no one took much notice of them. It was also accepted that people died; usually people in their 70s, which was old in those days, but sometimes children. Two children at my primary school died, of things that would be entirely curable these days. We had also recently had the completely random, though entirely preventable, tragedy of Aberfan.
People took whatever measures they could to protect themselves and their families and got on with their lives. It never occurred to them that anything else was an option. But, of course, they didn’t have social media or 24 hour news!

I feel like this is my therapy group. Or a 12-step meeting. “Hello my name is X and I’m a lockdown sceptic.” We all come from different walks of life, may have different political views, live in various countries, range in age from old to young, and mostly want to remain anonymous. But we all have this one thing in common… an unshakeable belief that lockdowns (aka the removal of basic human rights, enforced isolation and life-threatening mandates inhibiting our most basic human functions like breathing and gaining community immunity against viruses) are wrong on every level. Lockdowns are unethical, unnecessary and inhumane. I felt this strongly on day one and I’ve never wavered. It was so perplexing, I’ve considered every possible theory out there. I’ve rejected most. But as more time passes, there are some undeniable contributing factors that have led to this nightmare:

1. Whether unintentional or intentional, China spooked the world with early hysteria about a novel coronavirus and demonstrated that harsh lockdowns were the only way to deal with it.

2. Rather than say, “Yes, but that’s the extreme way the Chinese Communist Party do things, we are a rational democracy,” Western governments panicked, caved to the freaked out media mob, and implemented “lockdowns” or “shelter in place” policies. Some countries knew their citizens would mostly obey a with a gentle push (Canada). In the UK, they were so convinced that, when they told everyone to stay at home, the majority would say, “You’re having a laugh, aren’t you?” that they produced posters that would not have been out of place outside a movie theatre advertising the latest Tom Cruise dystopian blockbuster. These proclaimed things like STAY HOME! ANYONE CAN SPREAD IT! IF YOU GO OUT, PEOPLE WILL DIE! ACT AS IF YOU’VE GOT IT! I genuinely don’t think the British government intended to publish instruments of state terrorism but that’s, sadly, the effect they had. The majority of people were absolutely terrified, did not leave their homes (some STILL haven’t!) and the country ground to a standstill… and started haemorrhaging money. Empty trains ran every day, to a faultless Sunday timetable, without a delay or cancellation amongst them, and people STAYED HOME. At first it was fun. They baked bread and learned dance routines. But then the lockdown kept getting extended and that’s when things got really serious.

3. With daily press conferences announcing death rates, control of the media to suppress public scrutiny of their bizarre actions, and having seized unprecedented power over people’s lives, governments had created a paranoid, codependent society. They had accidentally brainwashed everyone into thinking that THEY, the government, could “CONTROL A VIRUS”. If the virus still killed people it was the government’s fault. Government didn’t like that so they said, “No, no, it’s YOUR fault, or it’s the fault of your naughty neighbour who broke the rules to visit his elderly mum.” And then all hell broke loose. We MUST CONTROL THE VIRUS! They tried everything: masks, obsessively sanitising children, mass testing, contact tracing, tiers, blaming students, even announcing a rushed-out miracle vaccine was imminent. Nothing worked. People still died. Positive tests still came in. “WHY CAN’T YOU CONTROL THIS??!” people screamed at each other.

4. The brave voices of reason started popping up. The Mike Yeadons and the Clare Craigs of this world. “Um, excuse me, sorry to bother you, but you can’t actually CONTROL a virus. And shaky test results without symptoms don’t really mean anything.” And they were treated as devil-worshipping heretics. So the Great Barrington lot says, “Look, people are seriously disturbed, let’s go softly, softly and gently suggest a different approach.” Nope. Also cancelled. An outpouring of experts and professionals speaking up met with the same blanket censorship. IF YOU DENY IT IS DEADLY YOU MUST WANT PEOPLE TO DIE!!! (If you are in the US, this got warped one stage further, of course. IF YOU DENY IT IS DEADLY YOU MUST LOVE TRUMP!!!) No one trusted anyone anymore, because – while it didn’t make a whole lot of sense, the government wouldn’t have made everyone suffer so drastically if it wasn’t for good reason, right?! People wanted THE GOVERNMENT to tell them what to do and nothing else. People had installed their dictator. Only he could dictate.

Look at the face of that man during the debate yesterday as his few courageous colleagues calmly questioned him. Did that look like the face of a man enjoying his power?! No. That was the face of a broken man. A man who has not, and will never have, the balls to say, “I completely fucked up and I need to put it right.” He’d rather burn in hell than say that. And he’s quite prepared to drag the country down with him.

I tend to think China spooked the world on purpose. Remember the “leaked” videos from “dissidents” showing people falling dead in the streets? The video of a young man screaming and crying for help before he keeled over dead at his desk? The stories that the crematoriums were working 24 hours a day to burn all the bodies, and that black ash was falling on Japan from the burning. That the doors of apartment buildings were being welded shut with people left inside to die. All of course denied by the evil Chinese government who were trying to keep us from knowing how serious the virus was. We now know from our own experience of the virus that those videos were faked – it doesn’t work like that, nor kill that many people. We were played.

Actually, I have followed their videos for years because I have also worked in China as part of my university job. I have found most of their videos helpful and as I got to know China and Chinese people better, I would generally agree with what they say about most matters. They both, with their Chinese wives, had to leave China recently due to getting overly critical of the government and Communist Party. You could argue that they were both rather naive and perhaps foolish to think they could get away with it for as long as they did. Both now live in California.

Regarding their coverage of developments in Wuhan, I followed them closely in January and afterwards. They do still have contacts in China and reported what they could gather, including how badly foreigners living in China have been treated (something that was starting to happen before the virus, actually). To be fair, I don’t think they intentionally exaggerated the severity of the virus. In the early days, there genuinely was a big problem with spread and with serious illness for older and unhealthy people (and possibly those getting mega doses, like the doctor who initially blew the whistle and was spoken to by police). This was all due to the attempts by officials to cover it up and to the fact that most Chinese cities have horrendous air pollution (you simply cannot appreciate how bad it is unless you have been there – even after several years, I still could not believe what I was seeing the last time I was there!).

Most Chinese live in crowded conditions in high-rise apartment buildings in the major cities of the eastern part of the country. Half of all Chinese men smoke (though very few women smoke). When you put all these factors together, it’s not surprising that there were problems. When I saw that northern Italy had some of the worst air quality in Europe, an elderly population, and a lot of smokers – and I knew Madrid was the same – I was not surprised by what happened in Europe. What did surprise me was the overreaction in Europe and the imitation of Chinese suppression techniques.

I don’t think China spooked the world on purpose. While the Communist Party does wield a lot of power, China is a huge, corrupt country and it’s difficult to govern. As you can see with what happened in Wuhan, it took some time for the central government to get to the bottom of things and take control. Yes, some events were staged for theatricality, but this was probably for domestic consumption more than anything else.

Ultimately, the reaction in democratic countries came down to weak politicians being pushed by a hysterical public that had been egged on by an irresponsible, sensationalistic media with a message reinforced by social media echo chambers and a lack of critical thinking. This mess is, collectively speaking, our fault. It certainly does raise some difficult questions about democracy; we should not get on our high horse when looking at China.

Responsibility lies with governments to say, “You may be led to believe x by the media, but here are the facts.” Instead of the government finding and fudging figures to back up the hysterical media. You don’t let hysterical children dictate your decisions. That’s bad parenting. Ironically all the FACTS you need to refute this whole debacle are published for all to see, in plain sight. All over the internet, in public documents, on all the ONS, PHE, NHS websites you will find figures that categorically prove we are NOT in any kind of pandemic by ANY reasonable definition of the word. If MPs continue to use the popular rhetoric, mentioning “a deadly virus” and “this terrible disease” and “until we are all safe”, we will continue to go – collectively – to hell in a hand basket.

The ONS have been very good to date. It was there that it was first shown that London had fewer deaths in early June than the five year average. Covid was downhill all the way from then on.

Exactly! This is what I keep telling people. The facts are all there, often on official websites, but journalists are too caught up in the sensationalism they themselves have manufactured to stop now. Furthermore, members of the public are too lazy to look online, apart from their social media echo chambers. Ultimately, I blame (in democracies) the people (collectively). I think this is actually part of the problem with ‘waking up’ – some people are probably wondering if they’ve been taken in, but are too shocked or embarrassed to admit it to themselves and others. It will be interesting to see what happens when (and if) this finally ends. It’s possible there will be a huge anti-government reaction, and I think this is the main reason why so many governments have kept on with the charade.

It was very noticeable in the debate yesterday the large number of MPs who repeated the mantra about the vaccine(s) being an imminent saviour.

Today’s editorial throws more doubt over whether sufficient testing has been done to ensure a safe and effective vaccine can be rolled out in the near future.

I think the regime has lurched from one disaster to another by a complete failure to think. Before saying the vaccine would save us they must have known that vaccines take years to develop and their civil servants should have advised them to caveat their statements to this effect. They have now dug another hole for themselves by saying it’s almost here, when patently it is not, and might be years away. They now face another uncomfortable choice between attempting to force untested vaccines upon an unwilling population, or admitting that they were foolishly optimistic.

The biggest policy error in history aka lockdown was merely the first in a series of cock ups.

To answer the question there will be a public outcry and more of the media will be forced into taking a sceptical line. Cue removal of Prime Minister?

279575 ▶▶ GiftWrappedKittyCat, replying to steph, 9, #205 of 2196 🔗

I would absolutely agree about the percentage of hospital acquired infections. I know of two people who were admitted to the new Queen Elizabeth hospital in Glasgow for ailments completely unrelated to covid. They were in their own rooms rather than open wards and visitors were not allowed (cruelty in itself). Low and behold despite this enforced isolation, they still managed to contract covid. One has since died and it’s not looking good for the other. I really hope their families kick up big time about how this was allowed to happen.

Whatever people might think of the vaccine, for him it is a lesser threat. I can think of nothing to say to help or reassure him.

They tested negative for covid upon admission and later tested positive having displayed symptoms. We all know how accurate the PCR tests are though so there’s every possibility it’s something else. The fact remains though that they picked up a virus, covid or not, whilst completely isolated from the outside world.

279640 ▶▶ BTLnewbie, replying to steph, 3, #209 of 2196 🔗

If there is this level (say 20%) of Covid ‘infections’ acquired in hospital, this will presumably generate a much higher percentage of overall Covid deaths, because the patients were already suffering from something when they went into hospital. Now THAT would be a figure worth getting at – “xx% of Covid deaths were as a result of hospital-acquired infections.”

This is the current equivalent of the care homes scandal back in March when a high proportion of the deaths were caused by hospitals throwing patients with Covid back over the walls of their care homes.

How many of the eventual tally of, say, 60,000 ‘deaths with Covid’ will the NHS have been complicit in causing?

279727 ▶▶ Mel, replying to steph, 3, #210 of 2196 🔗

I know of 3 acquired in hospital, out of 5 positive tests. One an op for a knee injury. Patient tested negative as required before having operation. 6 days later his partner developed symptoms and they both tested positive. She’d been working at home, doesnt drive, gets supermarket deliveries ad it was during lockdown so not hospitality acquired.

Other an 80 year old friend who went into Barnsley Hospital in April with suspected heart attack. Tested negative on arrival. Was then (normal procedure) transferred to Northern General in Sheffield for stents, where after several days she tested positive. She seemed to have minimal ill effects from covid, despite being in a vulnerable group for age and co-morbidities, and was treated with aspirin for a mild temperature. She was however in hospital for an extended period of time as she kept testing positive for a whole month after symptoms disappeared and couldnt be discharged back to sheltered accommodation.

280008 ▶▶ Anne Passman, replying to steph, 2, #211 of 2196 🔗

Another thing in today’s DT is the preparation to give NHS workers the vaccine starting next week, if it is approved. Imperial College trust are asking for volunteers to administer it to staff.

I would not want to go anywhere near a person who had taken that vaccine so how do I get protection? Will the vaccinated carry a stamp on their heads so we can identify them?

Can anyone take the US CDC seriously ?

A direct quote from the CDC website:” Overall, an estimated 299,028 excess deaths occurred from late January through October 3, 2020, with 198,081 (66%) excess deaths attributed to COVID-19. The largest percentage increases were seen among adults aged 25–44 years and among Hispanic or Latino persons.”

Now, as at 30 September, only 5,469 had died within 28 days of a positive test in this age group according to their own numbers.

So something very odd is happening in the US death stats, but it sure as hell is nothing to do with COVID.

One last thing I read in today’s DT was a letter which shows what we are up against in this fight against lockdown. The writer didn’t mind that their sleepy hamlet was in tier 3 and the pub was closed. Apparently that means people won’t be visiting from high risk areas and anyway “it’s not forever”.
Firstly, I wonder how the pub landlord feels about that? Secondly, it was only for 3 bloody weeks in March and look where we are now. Dear Pat (letter writer), you and any other of your fellow residents who are scared stay indoors if you want to but let the rest of us enjoy some freedom and your local landlord rescue their business if it is still possible, We are not the selfish ones, your fear is making you unforgivably selfish.

That Julia Hartley Brewer interview with Col Bob Stewart MP shows us exactly what we’re up against. He basically admitted on air that he would vote for the Tier system despite the complete lack of scientific evidence supporting it’s efficacy because “we need to support the government and listen to the experts.”

That’s it. That’s his entire justification for destroying hundreds of businesses in his constituency and plunging millions of families into a future of financial insecurity and hardship. These repugnant troughers only care about their spot on the gravy train.

Very much enjoyed the Ramesh Thakur article today, it certainly made me think.

I’m pretty reasonable on the science and data analysis side of things, but I’m clueless on what our best practical actions are to get us back to normal.

At the moment at least, I think that peaceful protest rather than violent protest is the way forward. It was noticeable from watching footage of the London protests how peaceful they were from the protesters side of things. I have nothing but admiration for the protesters who attended.

Angry as we are (and boy am I angry like most others here) as soon as you start using violence then it gets used against you by the media, politicians and all the others whose vested interests are to keep this charade going, and you then lose the potential support of others who don’t like what is going on but are currently sitting on the proverbial fence.

The voluntary arrest approach isn’t going to be practical in real life for many, but for those for whom it is, it’s something to consider I guess. We have to start thinking about these things though.

FFS, get a grip, man! Corbyn was a full on panicker in March spouting juvenile tripe about herd immunity being “eugenics”. He played as full a part as he could in driving this country away from the Swedish-style path of reason that it was on, into panic mode where we’ve been ever since.

While Johnson-worshippers here have been forced to confront his inadequacies because he’s been on the spot making decisions (and getting them pretty much all wrong), Corbyn-fantasists have been able to preserve their illusions because he’s had no power and they can just pretend he didn’t say all the literally stupid things he’s been saying.

Yesterday he voted against the government, not for any grown up reason, apparently, but because they aren’t dishing out enough made up money on the never never to bribe people to put up with lockdown for longer.

BREAKING: UK has become first country in the world to approve the Pfizer vaccine. Rollout will begin within days: UK approves Pfizer/BioNTech Covid vaccine for mass roll out https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-55145696

This should be good news but strangely I don’t feel terribly happy about this, for a number of reasons. This all feels very rushed. There is no precedent for rolling out an mRNA vaccine so quickly for such mass usage. I have genuine safety concerns and I don’t think that’s unreasonable, especially because, at 22, my risk of harm from the vaccine likely outweighs my risk from Covid. Thank God that I’m at the very bottom of the list so I have a bit of time to assess side effects. You’d think that the govt could be trustworthy because if the vaccine were to go catastrophically wrong then the pharma industry would be destroyed and the whole world is watching, but remember how much destruction these politicians have caused to other industries this year with lockdowns and how little regard they have for people’s health.

I’m also worried that as soon as the vaccine is rolled out, people will forget about lockdown and the harms it caused. People won’t learn. They will just roll up their sleeves, get their jab and go back to normal, not giving a damn about those who were destroyed by the most harmful policy mistake in history. Just because there’s now a vaccine doesn’t mean there cannot be accountability for lockdowns and it absolutely does NOT justify them.

Valid point. Maybe they are being more than a trifle inconsistent/hypocritical in their thoughts and they want everyone else to have the vaccine and then they will emerge from their houses? We pay – they gain so to say.

Because one doesn’t question doctors.
Most people do not have the capacity do understand the complexity of the vaccine, especially a RNA one. Why would they question it, if they have followed stupid guidelines all this time, even if they moan about it?
If the doctor says, take this, they will swallow it.
Most people want a quick cure, just think about all these people asking for antibiotics, even for a cold. They have absolutely no understanding of basic medical facts, they just want to be “normal”.

I think you worries about a vaccine making it all go away for people is valid. The government have done a an excellent job of crystallising that in the minds of the general public.

The reason why they’ll forget is because ultimately they don’t care. They virtue signal with their masks and social media badges, “if it wasn’t for those rule breakers” etc. (see Ivor Cummings latest vid to see just how wrong this is), lockdown the schools, teachers are risking their lives nonsense.

They’ll just move on. The damage caused by all this will have been worth it or they’ll begin now patronising those who’ve suffered by claiming the government has to “do more” to support those who bore the brunt of the lockdowns to recognise their sacrifice.

They’ll now drop in behind calls for the dodgy contracts to be investigated fully and they’ll call for Starmer as PM, because we would never have gotten into this position if it wasnt for BJ (ready made scapegoat whose position within the WEF Committee to replace Schwab will now be assured anyway) and his incompetence. The privatisation danger of the NHS will be brought up again to ensure they remain front and centre in this never ending virtuous masturbation.

We will probably get an enquiry in 2027. This is will a hand wringing exercise and while many will be cited for their poor management and conflicts of interest, the deadliest pandemic in 100 years will prove a get out o jail card for everyone.

Email of this morning to my MP. It’s getting personal now.

Dear Mr Cox,

So you voted for the tier system yesterday evening. Again, perhaps you’d like to explain why. I am at a loss to know why any thinking person would support it.

But I get the very strong impression that you are simply not applying your mind to covid matters. This is by far the most important issue affecting your constituents; and you are not applying your mind to it.

Instead, I see from the register of Member’s interests that from late September you will be receiving nearly half a million pounds a year for private legal services. The covid measures won’t be making you poorer. Perhaps you could donate your fees to those of your constituents who will be driven out of work by the measures you have voted for.

I also get the impression that you won’t be standing for Parliament again. But presumably someone is going to stand for the Conservatives in your seat. And by then the appalling impact of the government policies will have struck home, and I wouldn’t bet anything on their being elected. Indeed, I hope and pray that the Conservative Party is wiped out (except perhaps in 55 seats).

Hitherto I have been a law-abiding person, and I have never been in trouble with the law. But I – and I would hazard many millions of others – will be paying no regard whatsoever to the tier restrictions. Fine me and I won’t pay. Put me in jail and I’ll just sit there.

It is the duty of every decent and responsible citizen to stand up to this disgusting government.

Another shameful day in the House of Commons.

And to think, less than a year ago, I voted Conservative: shame on me.

Yours till next time,

A former Conservative voter.

1. Vaccinate hospital inpatients.

Dear Big Brother.

I’ve recently heard that protests may be possible if sponsored by a charity! Is this something you would be willing to sponsor. I ask on behalf of myself, friends who currently are within a whattapp group and of course all of us. We are keen on hard scientific facts and credible evidence of which we have lots. If, protest is now possible via an organisation or charity sponsoring ten I ask , please consider.

Since the pharma companies are not responsible for any damage done by their vaccines, i assume it will be us the poor tax payer who has to cough up when the claims start rolling in as they did with Swine Flu.

The insurance industry functions successfully by assessing risk – just wondered if anyone who has medical insurance has contacted or can contact the company to find out if they will cover their customers for any side effects, long term or short term, from a vaccine. I suspect the answer will be a resounding no but it would be interested to find out if they have any faith in the safety of these vaccines.

to my MP who voted in favour:

Dear Felicity,

Thank you for your email and an explanation of your thinking. I am sure it will come as no surprise that I am both disappointed with your decision and in disagreement with your reasoning. The current government has proven to be untrustworthy, unreliable and susceptible to outside influences that continue to be proven spectacularly wrong on multiple measures. It is deeply disturbing that MPs ignore all of that and continue to be in favour of forcefully imposing measures that are directly responsible for the unnecessary deaths of thousands, increase in domestic abuse, destruction of physical and mental health, disproportionately devastating to the working classes as well as all of the youth, and bringing about financial catastrophe for millions (along with astronomical government debt that will have to be paid by taxpayers at some point).

As bad as all of that is, what is worse is that those who have not voted against these measures are implicitly agreeing with the notion that it is the government’s right to trample on the freedom and liberty that used to be sacrosanct in this country. The government’s role is to PROTECT liberty, not to grant it like it is giving out favours and we should all be meekly grateful. And let’s not forget, this travesty is being justified based on an illness that is of little to no particular health concern for more than 99% of the population.

That is equally mind boggling and frightening.

Sincerely,

Mark

Vaccines ceased to be about health many years ago. Kids are bombarded with completely unnecessary vaccines, hence the massive rise in autism etc The only beneficiaries are the pharma companies who run the NHS and now the Govt. Pharma companies are corrupt, immoral and most of their ‘research’ is actually devious and unsafe. The internet have hidden most anti vaccine info but take the time to Google Pharma companies violations and be horrified. They reoffend again and again as it is a drop in the ocean to them when they pay billion dollar fines. These don’t even include damages for anyone injured or killed by a vaccine as they persuaded the Govt to pay these for them. The Govt denies vaccine damage exists and yet has paid out around £74 of taxpayers money in damages. Then take a look at withdrawn medications all of which passed their safety checks. I was unlucky enough to be part of a Pfizer trial a few years ago and ended up in hospital for 10 days on a drip, Pfizer didn’t even count that as a negative side effect!

I’m a little disappointed by the petition Yeadon is asking people to sign. He’s at risk of losing the centre ground and diluting the important point which he keeps making (and which is much easier to defend) which is that in Western Europe and most of the world the pandemic is over.

The vaccine demands are scaremongering and not more credible than claims from the other side like that 50% of mild Covid survivors will suffer from heart failure due to Long Covid.

There is nothing wrong with using symptoms plus a properly done PCR test to verify Covid infection, and no reason to demand people use the Sanger test instead. Nobody has shown that there is anything wrong with the RT-PCR test except the same things that are wrong with any test– not taking account of the specificity when prevalence is low, and not following the instructions properly and keeping everything clean.

The other claims in reverse order of bogosity:

If antibodies to spike proteins resulted in infertility you’d be just as likely to suffer this from actual Covid, or even from a common cold. Even the Long Covid crowd aren’t trying to scare us with this one.

Lots of other vaccines have PEG in them. It can’t be that bad or we would know about it.

Long term effects such as narcolepsy are certainly something that it’s worth evaluating over a longer period.

Disease enhancement (which I don’t think was actually ADE but immune system imbalance) is in my view the biggest risk. But to get that into proportion, all the vaccines that have had that problem before either showed it on animals or in phase 3 trials. The SARS2 vaccines we’re talking about have all passed both of these tests, on a few dozen monkeys and several tens of thousands of people.

The Moderna trial had 30 cases of severe Covid out of 15000 in the control arm and 0 in the vaccine arm. That is a statistically significant relative risk reduction of between 4x and 1000x. If enhancement happens it’s with less frequency than severe Covid from a natural infection. My remaining concerns about enhancement relate to what happens longer-term after the antibodies from the vaccine have gone and you’re left with whatever other immune memory it gives you. I emphasize that this is a low but unknown risk that needs to be balanced with other risks. Severe adverse reactions will also happen, but so far, in these trials, much less often than severe Covid happens without the vaccine. Nothing is perfect; it’s all about balance.

I dislike all Johnson’s drivel about the siren call of sunlit bugles as much as everyone and this makes me instinctively want to push the table over and knock all the vaccine doses onto the floor. But they do work and they are per se a good thing.

What is a not a good thing is the heavy-handed persuasion and “encouragement” we will be subjected to for no reason other than to be actors in the bugle story and that’s what we need to concentrate on.

Should we be rushing these vaccines out or waiting another year or so? Most of the world does not need them now. The time to take the vaccine is in about a year and a half. Coronaviruses seem to be quite strongly biennial. Covid will be back, so take the vaccine when you have a much better idea of its long-term safety and so that you have a fresh dose at the right time. The equation is different in AU and NZ and those are the places I would be trying to make sure the vaccine was available first.

But I don’t see why we can’t offer them to people now. All along a lot of this debate has been about whether people should be allowed to be responsible for their own risks or not. I think they should. In an ideal world, the risks of both the vaccine and the disease should both be explained honestly and people allowed to choose. You shouldn’t withhold a vaccine you have that has a good chance of working and of not doing harm any more than you should withhold treatments like HCQ because you’re waiting for gold-standard clinical trials.

Do we need a vaccine for what is a relatively commonplace disease? Not really, but we are where we are and we now have a few of them. The money they cost could have been better spent elsewhere (but there also plenty of worse things it could have been spent on…) But none of this is relevant. We have it now, it should be cautiously welcomed, and the right battles to fight are coercion and lockdown restrictions.

279619 ▶▶ BeBopRockSteady, replying to guy153, 4, #409 of 2196 🔗

Cautiously welcomed. That’s a nice way of saying let’s just wait and see if those at the front of the queue suffer first. Then we might get back to the pub.

Here is a scenario. A young junior doctor is offered it. She has plans on starting a family soon. She asks will there be any possibility of side effects due to fertility or something that would make it a danger to fetal development?

There’s a saying that the early bird catches the worm. But the second mouse gets the cheese.

The risk that this vaccine would cause infertility by accident is absolutely minimal as is the chance that it was designed to do that on purpose. But there’s no hurry at all for a young junior doctor to take it so she should just wait a few years.

The only thing you should ever trust is the facts. They are out there and I don’t see evidence of a massive conspiracy, just of the usual hamfisted propagandizing which is mostly pretty easy to spot.

There are multiple doses required. You’ll effectively be on meds. Do these experimental RNA vaccines have any impact at all on a developing featus?

We’ve no idea is that answer. How could we.

That junior doctor will being asked the same questions, which is why I chose that example. So in her professional role she will advise pyoung women to take it, but privately she’ll wait and see.

But what symptoms? They are no different to a multitude of infections, they could be caused by SARS-CoV-2 but may not be, an RT-PCR test may show the presence of the virus but cannot determine whether you’re infected or infectious. The presence of mild symptoms such as fever would suggest that your immune system is fighting the virus, the initial response to any infection is an inflammatory one.

279633 ▶▶ Will, replying to guy153, 5, #414 of 2196 🔗

Brilliant post Guy 153. I won’t be rushing to have the vaccine because I really don’t need it. My kids certainly won’t be having it because they certainly don’t need it and my youngest has already suffered one catastrophic reaction to MMR which caused her autoimmune condition to become acute; that said, the JDM was always there and, if it hadn’t been the MMR the chances are it would have been something natural that set it off anyway.

279652 ▶▶ Tyneside Tigress, replying to guy153, 10, #415 of 2196 🔗

Guy, while I understand where you are coming from here, I think the fundamental issue is not the short-term side effects for the mRNA vaccines (Pfizer, Moderna), but potential long-term effects which are completely unknown. I am not aware that there has been any testing of pregnant animals in pre-clinical trials, nor indeed of animals that are then allowed to conceive having had the vaccine. I am less concerned about the long-term side effects in the adenovirus vaccines (Oxford/AZ, J&J), but more concerned about short-term potentially more serious adverse reactions. Given the ‘mistakes’ and lack of transparency in the Oxford/AZ phase I/II trials, I remain of the view that on a risk/reward basis, this is not a vaccine to take willingly unless and until more data and information is available.

280861 ▶▶▶ guy153, replying to Tyneside Tigress, #416 of 2196 🔗

Of course nobody can rule out long-term effects. But I don’t see any reason to think any of the vaccines would cause any particular issues with pregnancy or fertility so it isn’t something they’ve specifically tested for.

They all contain RNA (as do many actual viruses, including SARS2). The main difference is that the Pfizer and Moderna ones are basically just the RNA whereas AZ and J&J (and Sputnik) put the RNA inside an adenovirus.

Agree all that messing about with data on the AZ trial to try to get the efficacy higher was pretty dodgy. Until there is more data it is best to think of that vaccine as having an efficacy of 62%. Which is actually not bad but I think when everyone else came out with figures in the 90s they started FOMOing a bit.

A good post which I’ve upvoted, although I’m not in the same place as you on this, albeit I’m not an expert. I certainly won’t be taking the Pfizer vaccine and have major concerns.

My general point would be that the immune system is a wonderfully complex part of the human body perhaps only second in complexity to the human brain. It’s been honed to near perfection by evolution although it perhaps can’t cope with some of the modern foods we put in our body which probably explains many auto-immune conditions.

But we mess with the immune system through a new technique such as messenger RNA at great risk. It may be safe but then there may be long term dangers and we just can’t anticipate what those dangers are over so short a time period, perhaps the dangers of taking the vaccine will be when the next coronavirus is encountered. Or perhaps something else will emerge. Unintended consequences are highly likely when we mess with a highly complex system like the immune system and we need at least 5 years to know if something like this is relatively safe.

And given the risk of covid-19 is so small for anybody who is not older and with significant co-morbidities, that balance of risk objectively heavily weights towards not taking the vaccine for most if not all.

But that said I agree that people should arguably be able to make informed decisions on whether to take the Pfizer vaccine. My concern would be, that even if there is completely free choice, are people going to be provided enough information about the risk of taking the vaccine vs the risk of not taking the vaccine to make an informed decision. And will they be pressurised by some weak and mainly emotional argument to ‘protect granny’.

I agree at least tactically that Michael Yeadon’s letter will sideline him a bit from the other excellent points he makes.

On ADE what I have read so far does suggest that this would normally show up on first encounter with the virus having taken the vaccine as you say.

But good post

280904 ▶▶▶ guy153, replying to Freecumbria, 1, #420 of 2196 🔗

Many actual viruses (including SARS2) have RNA in them anyway, which is why it’s something the immune system is very good at dealing with, and why they’re putting it in the vaccines. I don’t think there’s any particular reason to be worried about injecting people with naked RNA. It won’t do anything until it gets inside cells anyway and when it does it’s just like being infected by a virus, only one that can’t replicate.

We’re relying on the robustness of the immune system for the vaccines to work at all and we do also have to trust it not to backfire somehow with enhanced disease or dysfunctional cross-immunity to the next virus. But it’s evolved to be good at not doing that.

It’s unlikely any of the vaccines would be worse than an actual virus. But there’s (rightly) a higher ethical standard when it comes to deliberately injecting someone with something. This also applies when deciding whether to get the vaccine. Why have an unnecessary medical treatment that you probably don’t need?

However, that doesn’t mean that there will be no side effects. Long term, we just don’t know.
Now if the Black Death was laying waste to the world, killing us all, then we would see that as a risk worth taking. But moving from a position of health, to an unknown is madness.

I suppose it depends on how “mandatory ” it is.

Substantive confrontation between journalists and politicians has been a dog and pony show for decades; all interviews are compromised by prior agreement.

If it was like that then, one can imagine how it is now! Political journalism is fundamentally emasculated, its teeth were drawn long ago. JHB knows that to push ‘too far’ in the face of these controls is career suicide. Until the fourth estate breaks out of the prison constructed for it by entrenched political ideologues, nothing will change on that score. ‘Etiquette’ is more important than forcing reluctant pols to answer difficult questions, you’ve got to go along to get along etc.

Morning, I wonder if:
“The mRNA vaccines from BioNTech/Pfizer contain polyethylene glycol (PEG). 70% of people develop antibodies against this substance. This means that many people can develop allergic, potentially fatal reactions to the vaccination.”

This is/was causing those early reports of young people who vaped “e cigarettes” dying and had “ground glass” in their lungs on X-Ray imaging.
Nearly all eliquid contains up to 50% (more usually 20-30%) of Propylene glycol.

When I started vaping, perhaps more than I should as I was trying to get over actual smoking I developed severe asthma after a few months. Perhaps this was because I was working a lot with Balsa wood at the time building a remote controlled glider. It might have been an allergic reaction to the Propylene Glycol.

A few more months down the line the asthma got better as I stopped doing the plane building. I also stopped hitting the vape so much…hummm

A few more months later I developed a horrible “Itchiness” a sort of all over crawling of the skins not surface itchiness it was almost like hives. It would flare up suddenly often in supermarkets when I got near the detergent isles. Very nasty.

My money was on shit in washing detergents that I was allergic to. I stopped using perfumed detergents and other products with additives in them and also cut out the PG in my vape liquids. The nasty itchiness thing went away after about a year. I still get it a bit if I hit the vape too hard and I now make my eliquid to about 30% PG/70%VG (Vegetable Glycerine) but just on my arms…strangely enough…..

Anyway. With all this in mind, I really really don’t want to be INJECTED with PEG. I think in my case it really could lead to some bad outcomes and catching covids is the least of my worries if I am as I think I am very sensitive to PG which is a very similar compound.

With regards to the itchiness, last year I had very bad contact dermatitis over my arms and back. It went on for about 5 months. It looked like prickly skin gone bad, but the wife started to get it. This was a serious rash that looked like I had burned myself on the arms.

We switched detergents to eco stuff and it went away.

I have eczema from childhood and that comes and goes in little patches. This thing was a full on assault on my skin.

If it was PEG then a vaccine would cause major issues.

Yes my money is on shit in detergents, especially the cheap one you get in Aldi, I am sure it is made in the Ukraine from the scrapings of the Chernobly plant. I did get really bad skin on my legs in particular where my socks went and my skin in general would be like a little snowstorm if I rubbed it…. Really bad. Thats all gone now too.

“It might have been an allergic reaction to the Propylene Glycol.
A few more months down the line the asthma got better as I stopped doing the plane building. I also stopped hitting the vape so much…hummm”

I’m no expert, but I don’t think you should be vaping Propylene Glycol.

But as you are a self confessed expert on the effects of smoking weed, apparently, you might know better about these things.

Just IMO of course.

Hope you won’t scold me for having that opinion.

Glycols are used in toothpaste, soaps, skin care products, medicines and are very low irritant. They are used everywhere, you’ve probably been in contact with PEG already today. I’d be less concerned about glycols than the gene therapy mRNA mechanism of these new vaccines. Perhaps it was the nicotine base in the vape that caused your problems, being the the most obvious and damaging toxic agent in vape juice.

279832 ▶▶▶ Two-Six, replying to G.Fawkes, 2, #483 of 2196 🔗

Yes could well be the nicotine. Its easy to over dose on it. This was particularly bad when I use the NHS approved nicotine replacement therapies especially the little nicotine inhaler things. All over itchiness was a sure fire side effect. The dose these things give is huge. The patches are even worse.

Re the PEG, yes its used in lots of things but I guess if you vape it in large quantities then a person could well get hyper sensitive to it. In fact its not unknown for people to get hive like allergies from it.

The new untested mRNA technology is beyond scary.

279971 ▶▶▶▶ G.Fawkes, replying to Two-Six, 1, #484 of 2196 🔗

I know from personal experience that I used to feel pretty sick from chain vaping, and when I tinkered with the nicotine level it became less of an issue. I wasn’t aware of the hives issue, but it must be rare, given how widespread use of glycols are. But yes, it pales in comparison to the mRNA function of the vaccine.

You’re right about the NHS replacement stuff, it’s pretty bad. And the backlash against vaping that the manufacturers of those products created was a thing to behold, wasn’t it? I remember reading a story floated in some local rag about an exploding battery in a vape pen blowing all of the windows out in a house. Hysterical nonsense.

At least it gave them plenty of practice in writing utter shit for the this Covid episode.

BBC R4 Reith Lectures 9am today with Mark Carney. My word. This is a MUST LISTEN for anyone interested in the brainwashing related to Covid, climate and financial “crises”. And potentially how this is a platform for the messaging/propaganda going forward!

Corrosion of moral to market sentiments. I mean it’s true really, but it’s laying the foundation (IMO) for shaming borrowing, profits. labelling value ie pricing.

So, let me think now, we should probably be working for free and get only what we need and I guess not own a property as that means borrowing. Where have I heard that before?!

279678 calchas, replying to calchas, 6, #508 of 2196 🔗

Thanks for the update.

I am very sceptical about the Wuhan leaks referred to in the update.

Take the following :

Allegedly , a new respiratory disease is already spreading in Wuhan in mid-November, reaching (according to the leaks) 20 times the normal level.

No restrictions implemented on travel etc between Wuhan and the rest of China until mid-January.

90 % of alleged covid deaths in China are in Wuhan and environs – about 4500 people,

Is it credible that a respiratory disease of this alleged infectiousness could kill so many people in the Wuhan area and only a couple of hundred people in the rest of China, although for six weeks there were no restrictions on travell?

Wuhan has a population of 10 million. Shanghai has a population of 24 million. Are we supposed to believe the official total of covid deaths in Shanghai – 7 people. Seven!

Now sme people will say that that’s because the Chinese are covering up deaths in the rest of the country. I don’t think that’s true.

Firstly, you can’t hide a pandemic.

Secondly, in the six week period before travel restrictions were implemented, millions of Chinese tourists visited Macao and Cambodia and yet these two have recorded not a single death from Covid.

Simply not credible.

Look at this news story from 2019:

https://edition.cnn.com/2019/07/10/asia/china-wuhan-pollution-problems-intl-hnk/index.html

Protests in Wuhan over air pollution concerns.

Take a look at the picture of Wuhan in the following article from 2018.

https://e360.yale.edu/features/how-a-toxic-cocktail-is-posing-a-troubling-health-risk-in-chinese-cities .

Wuhan is particularly affected because it is a very large industrialized city, where in winter especialy, the air gets trapped between the surrounding hills.

If you are a doctor in Wuhan, why would you start looking for a new virus, when suddenly in Winter you start seeing more patients with respiratory problems?

Why?

Possibly, because you know that local politicians don’t want to hear about any more pollution problems.

At any rate, any doctor in Wuhan suddenly confronted by a wave of respiratory problems, might first take a look at the air quality.

I think there is an overwhelming likelihood that the deaths in Wuhan and environs were caused by pollution.

Do you remember those pictures from Wuhan of people on the street suddenly keeling over. You know, the pictures that worried so many people.

Do you not think that is more consistent with air pollution?

After all, people haven’t keeled over anywhere else.

I would further speculate that China confronted by a glut of production, and consequent falling goods prices, towards the end of 2019, decided to close its economy for several weeks.

279744 ▶▶ PoshPanic, replying to calchas, 1, #509 of 2196 🔗

Lombardy had a history of illness caused by poor air quality. If you’ve ever travelled around the northern planes in winter, it’s easy to see why. Madrid too, sitting in a basin.

I’m also not convinced by the Wuhan lab escape theory either, even though there’s some interesting evidence. I seem to remember Wolfgang Wodarg, back in March suggesting that this virus was already widespread around the world, but only first becoming detected in China, because there are only a few places around the world that would likely have the expertise to detect it.

Sheer insanity. In the whole chain of this there must be not a single sceptic. Scary.

“First, a staff member tested positive over half-term, forcing a few others to self-isolate. Then a few days later another member of the team tested positive.

But there was no traceable connection to other positive cases, so public health authorities said all the staff at the small village school – which has open-plan teaching spaces – needed to be tested.

That eventually uncovered another three asymptomatic cases. By that point so many staff had to self-isolate that the school was forced to close for a week.

They reopened this week, only for a pupil to test positive, meaning two year groups and five members of staff were sent home.”

Re JHB and Kernel Bob Stewart, I thought that I had lucked out. I am moving to a new house in a couple of weeks. Just a couple of days back I noticed that my new MP will be the man himself.
Moving, as I am from a Labour constituency where the MP is a Corbynite, I expected her to noe or at least abstain… she ayed.
I consoled myself… At least I would be moving to a constituency where the MP was one of those rare individuals, an actual conservative MP, rather than the usual CONservative social democrat. He had been a trenchant supporter of Brexit, after all.
By the way that he over-mentioned and supported the antics of his beloved leader, I realised that he had spelled his adopted name wrong… You don’t spell “nutjob” with a C, but rather with a K (see above).
I am embarrassed to say that his slavish support of the great leader is apparently not derived from a thinking process, but rather from a devotion to his animal desire to be on the “winning side”.
Watch him jump into line when the Brexit “deal” is announced and we learn that we aren’t leaving after all. I fully expect “the transission” to continue for some time yet….

… Covid, don’t you know.

Hopefully, we will have a decent Reform UK candidate at the next election, so that a conservative constituency can vote for a real conservative.

It’s also the reason why western governments (and friends) train and fund terrorists. ISIS, Al Qaeda, IRA… on and on… It’s a matter of record, not a ‘theory’.

Even the Romans funded their own carefully cultivated terrorism. It’s certainly not a new idea, just a different method this time around.

With regards to the latest announcement and media delirium over the vaccine being approved (didn’t see that one coming) this morning.

NO WE WON’T, how delusional are these people, the government WON’T GIVE US BACK OUR FREEDOMS! Can’t wait until this plonker has had his vaccine and come March/April when absolutely nothing has changed.

To be fair, the only group where there is a case to be made for the SARS-CoV-2 vaccine is the elderly (plus those with co-morbidities). If your chance of dying of Covid is 10%, then on the balance of risk you might opt for the vaccine. However if the risk is 0.05% (the IFR for healthy under 65’s) then you’d be crazy to go for it! For the avoidance of doubt, I speak as an ex-GP and a pro-vaccer!

280021 ▶▶▶ RickH, replying to DocRC, 5, #596 of 2196 🔗

Well – I’m close to the bullseye for vulnerability.

But that makes me also more cautious about a vaccine that has been glaringly under-tested over a too short time-span.

… and I think your probabilities have to be adjusted because of that. We don’t know the effects of these vaccines, so can’t estimate an injury rate for any age group. But if we take it, we are automatically in the group that may be susceptible.

If I don’t get vaccinated, it is true that that a higher IFR will be applicable if I catch the disease . But the probability of actually catching the disease has to be factored in, thus reducing dramatically the fatality rate.

At the moment, the reduction in the regulatory security fence, plus the extraordinary conflicts of interest surrounding the vaccine, from government to producers easily tips the balance away from taking it.

I guess the wider general point that underlies issues of conflicting interests is that a virus with the general known effects of this one doesn’t come near meriting this panic-buying. This simply enhances suspicion about the gerated hysteria and its motivations.

Have you looked into what actually happened to those planes? There are some reconstructions in a simulator where the show what happened. The autopilot because of a faulty angle of attack vane on one side of the aircraft was giving the wrong information that the AOA was too high. It was stuck due to physical damage.

The plane thought it was going too slowly so increase forward trim. Then it did it again, and again, and again, every 5 seconds until the trim was way too far forward and no amount of pulling back on the control stick would pull the plane out the dive.

If the pilots had been warned about this possible scenario and had trained for it they could have just turned of the trim motors and gone for manual trimming and the planes would not have crashed.

The pilots were trusting in the flight systems instead of flying by conventional flying techniques of setting the pitch and power according to primary visual references and cross referencing their instruments. Instead they were fighting the autopilot until the planes crashed into the ground.

This is a good explanation of what happened.

Colonel Bob Stewart, in his boundless wisdom, gives his clinching reason for supporting the government as follows: we must agree with “the experts” (i.e. the government-appointed medical mandarins) or Boris Johnson will feel guilty for all the covid deaths.

Short response: WTF?

Longer response: I fail to see why the country should be shut down to suit Boris Johnson’s twisted conscience. If he had a proper conscience, he would be agonising over all the surplus cardiovascular, cancer and suicide deaths, the businesses destroyed, the people plunged into poverty, the mortgaging of the futures of the young (even dwarfing Gordon Brown’s shameless dice game with the future in the mid-2000s, and look how that ended up). The destruction of the country he claims to love, in irrational fear of a virus with a 0.12% IFR. (From the Norwegian study published yesterday. I tried to google this to double-check the figure, but Google reacted to my search terms by giving me, as top hit, a Twitter thread by a squealing American infant (OK… BEDWETTER, I give up) “refuting” the “lies” of “covid deniers”, so fuck them.)

279806 Steve Hayes, replying to Steve Hayes, 26, #633 of 2196 🔗

On Good Morning Britain this morning, Matt Hancock, the Health Secretary, stated that he would take the vaccine. He said this even as he acknowledged that he has had the disease and recovered. Either the Health Secretary, and his chief advisors, Whitty and Valance etc, do not know how vaccines work or they are yet again stating things that they know are false. If a vaccine works, it works by enabling the immune system to recognise the infectious agent and develop defences. It works by mimicking what happens when a person is infected and recovers, which is the immune system has recognised the infectious agent and developed defences. If Hancock has had the disease and recovered, the vaccine could not provide any benefit, but it could cause him harm. Yet, the Health Secretary, presumably acting on the advice of the Chief Medical Officer and Senior Scientific Advisor, is clearly trying to encourage people who have had the disease and recovered and therefore have as much, if not more, immunity than the vaccine could confer, to take a vaccine that, not only offers no benefit, but might cause them serious harm. One has to wonder whether Hancock and the rest have even heard of morality, never mind ethics.

279910 ▶▶ Freecumbria, replying to Steve Hayes, 3, #634 of 2196 🔗

I agree it would be completely pointless (and risky) for someone who had had the virus (perhaps someone who had tested positive for SARS-C0V-2 and had some symptoms) to take the vaccine. Natural infection should give better protection than a vaccine of course.

But much as I hate Matt Hancock, had he said he wasn’t going to take the vaccine for that reason, we’d all be shouting that he was shirking the vaccine because he knew it was dangerous.

Re the vaccine approval:
Copied this from the MHRA news release:

MHRA Chief Executive, Dr June Raine said:

We have carried out a rigorous scientific assessment of all the available evidence of quality, safety and effectiveness. The public’s safety has always been at the forefront of our minds – safety is our watchword.

I’m really pleased to say that the UK is now one step closer to providing a safe and effective vaccine to help in the fight against COVID-19 – a virus that has affected each and every one of us in some way – and in helping to save lives.

We are globally recognised for requiring high standards of safety, quality and effectiveness for any vaccine. Our expert scientists and clinicians worked tirelessly, around the clock, carefully, scientifically, robustly and rigorously poring over hundreds of pages and tables of data, methodically reviewing the data.

Vaccines are the most effective way to prevent infectious diseases. They save millions of lives worldwide.

Notes to Editor

  1. The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency is responsible for regulating all medicines and medical devices in the UK by ensuring they work and are acceptably safe. All our work is underpinned by robust and fact-based judgements to ensure that the benefits justify any risks.
  2. The decision to approve the supply of this vaccine was taken under Regulation 174 of the Human Medicine Regulations 2012, which enables rapid temporary regulatory approvals to address significant public health issues such as a pandemic.

Is it possible for us to see the rigorous and methodical review of the data that they claim has been carried out ? Not too much to ask surely given that the approval has been given , accordng to Note 2 above , “rapid temporary approval” because of the (nonexistent, IMO) pandemic.

279837 ▶▶ Andy Riley, replying to mikewaite, 4, #652 of 2196 🔗

… which is a generalized advocacy rather than an impartial analysis. I’ve never opposed vaccination on principle – but I know that statement is bullshit – and plain wrong in a historical analysis of public health.

Flu viruses have disappeared.

The covidians like to claim that this is because of masks and distancing. However:

  1. Even countries which have not adopted these measures, such as Sweden and Belarus, have seen the flu disappear.
  2. In a few countries with few covid ‘cases’ such as Cambodia, the flu continues.
  3. If it really were distancing and masks responsible, then why are coronaviruses not affected?

Conclusion – flu is being reclassified as covid.

Covidians fail to recognise that influenza and SARS-Cov-2 would be transmitted in exactly the same way. You can’t stop one without stopping the other. Or in other words, if one spreads, so would the other. Latest Ivor update shows clearly that NPIs make no difference whatsoever.

But I did wonder whether the picture he painted of Johnson was in fact the truth. Obviously, it was meant to be a defense, but the actual picture was indeed of a serial incompetent in charge of the country who is truly way out of his depth, with none of the qualities of analysis, let alone leadership, that are required by the job.

I’ve read it before, but as per everything that’s going on, if you don’t save it at the time then search engines will hide it to the point you can’t find it, even if you use very specific search terms.

280119 ▶▶ John Galt, replying to John Galt, #738 of 2196 🔗

I think this was correct when I initially read it, in that they test 18-55 year old’s first, but it seems that to conclude Phase 1, which Pfizer have said they have done, they also test 65-85 year old’s, so I think it’s outdated.

This is a link to the study where I found the information:

https://pfe-pfizercom-d8-prod.s2.amazonaws.com/2020-11/C4591001_Clinical_Protocol_Nov2020.pdf

It’s very dense, but I’m pretty sure they’ve tested 65-85 year old’s.

Does anyone have a timeline for the testing of this vaccine, out of interest? I can’t find anything saying when it started, but they’ve apparently now concluded Phase 3 testing as of the 18th of November, when phases 1-3 usually take between 5-9 years.

I noticed in an earlier comment someone said Hancock will take the vaccine “even though I’ve already had covid and recovered” (paraphrased).

Are you referring to Helen Whately, Nigel? I see there’s a few gaping holes in her answers to questions asked in Parliament. (found on the UK parliament website).
Here’s a corker – “ An assessment of which positive cases do not reflect contagious virus would depend on individual case by case review. PHE has not performed such a review and therefore does not hold this data.” In addition, she has said the false positive rate & any false negative rate is undeclared – they simply do not have the info.

THIS is the whole essence of the shambles and needs to be hit hard…. Because per AG’s FOIA and others, eg. Prof Allyson Pollock on BBC news, a positive PCR is not capable of detecting infectious virus!

PS. You’re not far from my neck of the woods! though my MP is Labour, initially I was hopeful but every email reply mentions her “heavy heart.” Must be weighing her down a tonne by now.

And where will those data come from?
From the open-air trial on British two-legged guinea pigs who are now clamouring to get vaccinated, unknown side effects be d*mned.

Just had a robust exchange with a friend, a retired NHS nurse, who was initially reluctant to view the official narrative with any scepticism but has since, with a little help, become increasingly concerned at the damage being done in the name of public health management, and was deeply shocked by the video footage I took in London last Saturday, although it seems I missed the worst of it. He optimistically welcomes the vaccine solution as a way out of lockdowns etc.; I did my best to point to the highly dubious history of previous coronavirus vaccine development attempts and the petitioning of the EMA yesterday by doctors Yeadon and Wodarg. Finding the common ground between naivety and cynicism can be very challenging indeed! The problem, as we know, is that huge numbers of otherwise rational people still rely mainly on the MSM for information even though they sometimes agree that the information is suspect, at least in part. All too many are defeated by this insidious dilemma, unable to jettison the idea that the MSM output can be trusted to provide trustworthy information and face the world with their own conclusions based on an objective perusal of all the evidence, at least 50% of which has been excluded by the very sources that they are relying on. They have neither the time nor the inclination to do the necessary work to educate themselves, and all too easily reach for the comfort blanket of MSM disseminated Govt. propaganda which, paradoxically in this case, is specifically designed to discomfit. We’ve got a mountain to climb and are going to need the oxygen of a far wider public debate; ultimately, we have to trust that with sustained pressure providence and the unfettered pursuit of verifiable scientific truth will prevail.

I feel like I’ve gone insane, when I talk to friends and family there is no common ground.

I’m unable to articulate the position, only today I told a colleague that ‘if they think I’m following their guidelines for Christmas they can get stuffed’ he nodded sagely and said ‘Yeah 5 days, they’ve gone mad … I could understand 1 day but … I mean… we all have webcams now.

The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Wearing of Face Coverings in a Relevant Place) (England) Regulations 2020 Come up for their 6 month review in January, if this goes through that will ridiculously take compulsory wearing of masks right through into mid Summer. As a seasonal virus wearing a face mask becomes even more pointless when the sun shines and the temperature climbs.
Should we now be looking to get a petition going to press for these regs to be rescinded when they come up for review?
I noticed in Barnstaple this morning, 4 Tesco staff members not wearing masks and sporting a sunshine lanyard plus a similar number of customers, also many people who have stopped wearing their mask over their nose so that they can breathe more easily. I wonder if now is the time to make a push on this? Has anyone produced a facemask realism leaflet that could be handed out? if not did we not ought to think about doing this? I feel there are a few people out there who with a bit of a push would jettison the mask and once a few start…………

280095 ▶▶ Steve, replying to Steve Martindale, 25, #840 of 2196 🔗

Facemasks have been one of the biggest problems I personally have with this whole lockdown madness.

I don’t feel comfortable going anywhere where lots of people are wearing masks – it’s dehumanising, and I refuse to wear one my self so even going shopping (when permitted!) turns into an ordeal.

I’m lucky in that I have a job and can work from home, but I’m virtually a prisoner because I can’t do the things I used to enjoy due to the mask wearing rules. (Not that I can do much of anything anyway due to being in tier 3.)

My wife is now getting issues with the NHS asking her to wear a mask for appointments even when she’s exempt on several grounds.

I agree we should be campaigning to get the mask wearing regulations abolished.

From the Grauniad “ People living in areas with Covid-19 spread should wear masks in shops, workplaces and schools if ventilation is not adequate , the World Health Organization (WHO) has said.
Health workers could wear N95 masks if available when caring for Covid-19 patients, but the only proven protection is when they are doing aerosol-generating procedures, the UN agency said, updating its previous guidance from June.
I have no idea what the bit that I have put in italics means.
What evidence is there for all this and what is the definition of adequate ventilation?

280205 ▶▶ Leemc23, replying to Steve Martindale, 1, #844 of 2196 🔗

Something lost to the dumb who wear masks / face coverings is that they are not a risk free trade off.

As a layer of protection, with social distancing, hygiene etc there is a potential very small benefit in reducing the possibility of transmission from you to someone else, so it’s right that anyone should be able to judge that risk reduction for themselves and if it helps them to help others then fine. But coercion is dangerous and doing it unnecessary in incorrect environments is ridiculous.

As a stand alone measure, replacing social distancing or hygiene, masks can be bad news. I’ve seen way too many people think a mask is a super power and a stand alone protection. It’s really not. Although I happen to think all the social controls are haphazard at best and without merit. Thinking a mask helps is as valid as taking your teddy bear to work.

I honestly think everyone should have a choice what they do and don’t wear, but the vagueness of the mask must be considered against the real harms it causes, even if the harm is most physiological. And I am yet to see one risk assessment where a health and safety professional has correctly considered that their harm control is causing harm.

And worth remembering that there is no recognised standard for “commercial” masks in the U.K. and as such a lot of purchased masks (tat sold to you by Tesco etc) are produced in non sanitised factories and certainly some are coated in substances such as ethylene oxide, which as the example, would be an insane substance to put close to our mouths however briefly. (( Government text is “Due to the complexity of the different contexts in which COVID-19 can spread and the rapidly changing and growing evidence base on the effectiveness of face masks and coverings, there are currently no UK product standards for face coverings))

To stress again, anyone should be free to wear what they want and I suspect there are enough dummies in the country to see them wearing these idiotic things even if Dorris Johnson says they no longer need to.

Specific to all the Covid emergency powers, don’t they all expire in March regardless of whether they extend the rag law ?

280298 ▶▶▶ Steve Martindale, replying to Leemc23, 2, #845 of 2196 🔗

Item 9 of the face mask regs says;
9. The Secretary of State must review the need for the requirements imposed by these Regulations before the end of the period of six months beginning with the day on which they come into force.
and item 10 says;
Expiry

10. —(1) These Regulations expire at the end of the period of 12 months beginning with the day on which they come into force.

(2) This regulation does not affect the validity of anything done pursuant to these Regulations before they expire.

So it looks like they run from 24 July 2020 to 24 July 2021 with a review in January 2021.

So with a review coming up next month is it now time for a petition calling on Parliament to rescind these regs when they review them in January?

Quick update on my relation who posted on twitter yesterday “I learnt today that only 1700 people without pre-existing conditions have died. How do I respond to this?”

She’d learnt it from me but didn’t know I know she posted it.

I won’t repeat everything but, in summary, she’s very left wing, only reads the Guardian/the BBC, is a full on FBPE Twitterer (so has 4000+ followers all of the same mindset and they block dissent) and she loves “forensic” Kier.

I was initially down about how do we ever get the left to open their eyes.

Well, I think I set a hare running. Overnight, she’s had a over 300 replies: a mix of factually illiterate/innumerate, insulting and (very occasionally given leftwing humour) funny but only because they are so unbelievably stupid. Here’s a selection:

“underlying health conditions can cover anything – I have arthritis in my hip and that would apparently be counted”
“over 5 million people in the UK have asthma”
“these figures look very dodgy and made up”
“tell that tool to go and do something medically and sexually impossible”
“tell that to the families of the 75,000 people here”
“the attitude is of a eugenicit. Ask them if they develop heart disease or cancer if we should treat them or die?”

My personal favourite is: “ask them if they approve the Nazis killing disabled people – 1700 is morally not a million miles from that.”

Logic – all over the place.They seem to fail a basic comprehension point i.e. that I’m saying this is a massive and detrimental overreaction even though I could be the next person to add to the 1700.

However, I’m kind of pleased because I think I’ve set a hare running and I hope she asks for the source which is from the NHS: COVID 19 total announced deaths 26 November 2020 – weekly file

But I don’t think she’ll ask because it would confirm something she doesn’t want to know and she’d prefer to believe any of the above.

So, next time I’ll drop into the exchange something like “Cancer Research reckon 50,000 extra people will die of cancer because of this”.

Someone famous said “first they ignore you (we had that for months and months), then they laugh at you (we’re conspiracy/5G folks), then they fight you (see above), then we win.”

Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine is relying on novel mRNA technology that has never previously been used in vaccines. It essentially instructs your cells to make the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein, which is what attaches to the ACE2 receptor of the cell. This is the first stage of the two-stage process viruses use to gain entry into cells.

https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2020/11/18/first-covid-19-vaccine-90-percent-effective.aspx

mRNA (messenger RNA) instructs your DNA and as a result tampers with your DNA. There is no data on how long these instructions will continue and what damage could be caused. You cannot detox this vaccine – permanent change.

These mRNA vaccines also uses nano technology – do research on the damage that can do to your body

Auto immune diseases develop over time (years) but is a known side effect of vaccines

I had my own health ruined when forced to have a BCG jab whilst working for the NHS. It gave me a massive autoimmune response and I have now been sick for 20 years. I’ve spent these years researching vaccines and would NEVER have another. I’d have to be dragged screaming from my home. I honestly believe that over vaccination is the cause of autism, asthma etc which were all uncommon until mass combined vaccines for conditions unlikely to happen. Vaccination was meant to be about health and NOT profit. More are damaged and killed from vaccines than are protected. We’ve all lived with flu (because of my ruined immunity I spent weeks in hospital with pneumonia a few years ago) and the flu vaccine is pathetically inefficient and this Covid one will be no different.

I have been reading the coerced vaccine debate – either implied or enforced – on here and Twitter and I’m really concerned that, regardless of any ‘promises’ made or sought by even well intentioned politicians (Swayne, Baker et al) there is now an inevitability. Once you accept, and all politicians seem to have, across the world, that the only way to protect the vulnerable, keep people safe, is through a vaccine then, inevitably if you cannot prove you have had it you cannot prove that you are able to protect ‘the vulnerable’. So we will need to show proof to be able to live. Even if, and it’s a big one, our government legislated that it wasn’t necessary, other countries will insist on proof before letting you visit. Without sounding, I hope, too conspiratorial, now that Wales have said they will issue ‘a credit size card’ how long before Wales, closely followed no doubt by Scotland, insist on proof of vaccine as a condition of entry – even with all of the immense difficulties of policing it? I see no concerted international efforts to secure the ability of people to travel freely, just the opposite in fact. I’m not a conspiracy theorist. I don’t believe that this has been thought up in advance by some evil mastermind. I just think it is the inevitable conclusion of a series of short term policy decisions that have been taken without any thought for how this will end. I am not convinced that politicians even see it now. I hope I’m wrong. Please somebody tell me I am!

Being vaccinated does not protect other people. An effective vaccine confers immunity from the disease on the vaccinated individual. It does not stop the vaccinated individual from coming into contact with the infectious agent, nor does it prevent a vaccinated individual from passing the infectious agent on.

My understanding is that the vaccine doesn’t even confer immunity – all it does is reduce the symptoms, i.e. leads to a milder infection. Given that most people need a test to establish whether or not they have had Covid at all, it’s hard not to see the main purpose of the vaccine being as a ‘Get out of jail free’ card for the Government.

The back-slapping has already begun – see Matt Hancock’s self-congratulation this morning – and will continue relentlessly. The full force of the Government and BBC will get behind the message that all the sacrifices were worth it in order to ‘keep us all safe’ until the ‘cavalry’ arrived. I’m feeling queasy already.

And whoever would have thought the only reasonable statement in this wretched article would come from a Tory?:

“Speaking about the number of deaths of elderly people of coronavirus, and whether the government could “protect every old person,” Tory MP Sir Charles Walker felt able to state openly, “No government can abolish death, it is impossible–615,000 people die every year in this country and not every death is a tragedy… Please can we change the narrative when we talk about death? Not all deaths are equal—there is the same outcome, but to compare the death of someone of 90 with the death of someone of 19 is not right.”

Total deaths this year (from the ONS figures) to date are just over 540,000 with four weeks to go. UK population is 14% higher than 2000.

However we needn’t get complacent once or even if they actually manage to get this vaccine out, as this guy is on BBC Scotland telling us that we won’t get rid of these ‘restrictions’ until almost everybody has the vaccine.

Re the vaccine. Surely it will simply end up like the Pneumococcal vaccine that’s given routinely to the 65+
Age group. The issue for anyone under 60/70 is so small as to not really matter.

Unfortunately another area that’s controlled by big pharma and in this case the food industry with all their conflicts of interest finding their way into things like the dietary guidelines

Diabetics and pre-diabetes should be offered a supported choice of a low carbohydrate high healthy fat (LCHF) diet. Essentially type 2 diabetes is a developed carbohydrate intolerance and the obvious solution of keeping carbs very low works to put it into remission in many cases. You only have to look at what Dr David Unwin has achieved at his surgery in Stockport and Virta Health have done in America to realise this works, the evidence is unequivocal.

If you’ve been impressed by Ivor Cummins in relation to covid then read his evidence based book which he wrote with Dr Jeffry Gerber ‘Eat Rich Live Long’ it explains it all there. Actually met Ivor briefly at the Real Food Rocks festival in Ambleside last year, totally decent bloke.

Being metabolically healthy which is where eating LCHF takes you to, is great protection against the very small risk of being seriously affected by covid-19. Aseem Malhotra has been excellent advocating that.

280370 ▶▶▶ Lisa (formerly) from Toronto, replying to Charlie Blue, 8, #923 of 2196 🔗

One of the many problems is that the people who are most at risk of Covid complications are the same people for whom the vaccine is riskiest. The older we become, the less of an immune response we are able to mount — whether to a wild virus or a vaccine — and those who have inflammation and are metabolically unhealthy are also more prone to adverse reactions to a vaccine (cytokine storm, etc.). Then you’re left with vaccinating people for whom the vaccine is far riskier than Covid, like young adults and children. It’s a catastrophe in the making.

I believe that is the case.
My personal concern is the potential effect on the immune system.
I don’t think that there will be many adverse reactions in young people, after all they show few or zero symptoms from the virus itself.

The real issue is going to be the over 70’s.

“At the same time, signs of an active immune response – cytokines, clotting factors and other inflammatory molecules – are often found at higher levels in the blood of elderly people, even when there are no overt signs of infection. This phenomenon is sometimes called ‘inflamm-ageing’. There are many reasons why a low level of background inflammation might persist in elderly people, such as there being an accumulation of damaged or senescent cells,
but the effect is that the system is less able to discriminate between germs and the body’s own cells and tissues, and is particularly weak at detecting germs that have never been encountered before. In broad-brush terms, it is easier for an immune reaction to be triggered in elderly people but, by the same token, the system is less stringent in responding appropriately. Crucially, this means that older people have more of their immune cells devoted to battling previously encountered infections, leaving fewer immune cells available for the fight against new infections. The Beautiful Cure: The New Science of Human Health by Daniel M Davis

I would suggest that because of this heightened state of the immune system in older people then there is a significant possibility of their immune system attacking the body itself, leading to clotting disorders, cytokine storm, reduced blood pressure, fever or hypothermia and other signs and symptoms of sepsis. There are no figures for the number of deaths in the spring that were due to septicaemia and how many were due to bacterial pneumonia (which could also lead to septicaemia). The side effects that were associated with the AstraZeneca vaccine were also autoimmune disorders.

If this virus has been around for 12 months then I would postulate that the vast majority of the population have been exposed to it and have developed immunity that the vaccination is supposed to give. Note this is the previously maligned T cells not antibodies

Netflix perhaps in a corner of the cage.

Do we think that Netflix might eventually lose its appeal? At the moment, people think that films made last year are a story about, or related to, ‘reality’. If it shows two people meeting and embarking on a romance, then maybe it will one day happen to them in real life. Ditto buying a sports car, travelling the world, becoming famous etc. But the way things are, we won’t even be able to talk intelligibly to a shop assistant, go to a pub or have dental work done ever again. In which case, the world depicted by Netflix may begin to annoy rather than feed fantasies. And if Netflix decide to make new dramas in the world of Covid, it might be rather depressing.

Watching anything on TV already annoys and depresses me. I’m constantly sighing to myself and thinking, “Remember when you could just pop round to your friend’s house for a cup of tea without worrying about snitching neighbours? Wow, look at all those people browsing round the shops without having to cover their faces with masks or follow one way systems. Oh yes, I’d forgotten that back in normal times you could just happen to be out and about and randomly decide to stop for lunch without having to book in advance and hand over all your contact details before sitting behind a plastic screen and being served by an Ebola nurse” etc etc.

“As the pandemic continues, the World Health Organization (WHO) has updated its recommendations for the use of masks in areas where the virus is spreading.

In updates today, the UN body advises “that the general public should wear a non-medical mask in indoor (eg shops, shared workplaces, schools) or outdoor settings where physical distancing of at least one metre cannot be maintained.”

The advice adds: “If indoors, unless ventilation has been assessed to be adequate, WHO advises that the general public should wear a non-medical mask, regardless of whether physical distancing of at least one metre can be maintained.”

If the government gave the choice of an untested, experimental, mandatory vaccine or getting a dose of the actual virus followed by two weeks of isolation, then wouldn’t that be the safest, most efficacious and cost-effective choice for anyone healthy or under 70?

Prior to the virus effectively being extinguished in May, I would have taken that choice gladly. Because I actually care about people, and not just virtue signalling muzzle-wearing, I would have considered that a civic duty during the real epidemic.

280258 ▶▶ Will, replying to TheBluePill, 3, #1015 of 2196 🔗

I would happily be exposed to the virus rather than the vaccine. But I don’t think the vaccine will ever get to me or my kids, thank God, because I think it will be withdrawn before it even gets close. Two things that give the game away are the vaccine is not licensed for children and is to be given to people under 50 last. 50 seems a strange cut off until one considers the menopause….

280279 ▶▶▶ TheBluePill, replying to Will, 6, #1016 of 2196 🔗

Maybe it’ll be a case of “look, all those over 50’s were fine. Now it’s confirmed safe. Your turn under 50’s”. And then 9 months later, “how strange that all the maternity units are all empty”.

I’m not entirely serious when I say that, but have to admit that pretty much every relevant conspiracy theory (bar the 5G nonsense etc) has either happened or looks increasingly likely.

I had heard, before Yeadon and his mate came out with their business, that there is a suggestion that covid can damage the placenta. I questioned it because, that was the case, I thought Wancock, Whitty and Wallance would have been shouting it from the roof tops.

280383 ▶▶▶▶▶ SweetBabyCheeses, replying to Will, 3, #1018 of 2196 🔗

I think it was the antibody response to the protein spike used in the vaccine that’s the issue, not covid itself? The worry is that the antibodies might mistake the placenta protein for the similar covid protein and attack it instead. Could be wrong, don’t remember where I read that sorry.

280442 ▶▶▶▶▶▶ mikewaite, replying to SweetBabyCheeses, 1, #1019 of 2196 🔗

Guy rich picked it up and posted a comment here 5 hours ago :
– The vaccinations are expected to produce antibodies against spike proteins of SARS-CoV-2. However, spike proteins also contain syncytin-homologous proteins, which are essential for the formation of the placenta in mammals such as humans. It must be ruled out that a vaccine against SARS-CoV-2 could trigger an immune reaction against syncytin-1, as it may otherwise result in infertility of indefinite duration in vaccinated women.

280254 Paul, 1, #1020 of 2196 🔗

Last night I emailed my MP to to tell him what a waste of space he is,this was his response,I am seething with anger after reading it,he is a total c**t.

Thank you for contacting me about the Government’s action to tackle coronavirus. I want to provide you with a detailed explanation of the significant work that has been put in to raise concerns and secure assurances for our area, as well as some much-needed good news.


Good news this morning

Firstly, are all waking up this morning to the news that today we are the first country in the world to approve the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine and we have secured the most doses across seven leading coronavirus vaccines. This marks a significant breakthrough as the vaccine will be made available across the UK from next week. The NHS has decades of experience in delivering large-scale vaccination programmes and they will begin putting their extensive preparations into action immediately.


Campaign for a fairer, more localised tier for South Lincs

Last week it was announced that our area is to be placed in Tier 3 from today, 2 December 2020. As I have said before, I was profoundly disappointed to see this given that our rates of infection were more in line with a Tier 2 classification.

Ultimately, we have been assigned to Tier 3 because of the extremely high rates of infection in the north of the county, specifically East Lindsey and Boston. The rates of infection there are among the very worst in the country and because the tiers have been determined based on hospital admissions (Pilgrim and Lincoln Hospitals in particular which are very high) on a county-wide basis, we have been brought into the highest tier with them.

Following the announcement last week, I have worked very closely with my Lincolnshire neighbour, Sir John Hayes MP – in South Holland and the Deepings to call for a review of our specific tier on a more localised basis so that our rates and particularly the movement patterns of our people are better reflected. We have taken the following action:

  1. Letter to the PM: Together with Sir John Hayes MP, Sir Edward Leigh MP, Cllr Martin Hill and other local leaders we wrote to the Prime Minister to call for a more localised approach to the tiering.

  1. Met Health Secretary: Sir John, Sir Edward and I also met with Health Secretary, Matt Hancock MP to convey our disappointment with the Tier 3 level and to call for a more localised approach in South Lincolnshire in particular.

  1. Call with PM: I also raised this issue for all South Lincolnshire residents directly with the Prime Minister on a call with him following the meeting with the Health Secretary.


In our joint statement published on Monday at the beginning of this week we stressed that we would not support the Government’s measures if it did not give clear assurances that they would assess our circumstances on a much more localised basis. Yesterday, we were pleased to receive a letter from Matt Hancock providing exactly these assurances. You can find copies of both our joint statement and response from the Health Secretary through my website which I have linked below.

Now the work must continue to ensure that our rates continue to decline.


Tiers are still better than stricter national lockdown

Despite some quite selective reporting in the press, the vote last night was essentially to move the country out of national lockdown to a new system of reduced restrictions assigned by tier.

Had the vote not gone through, we could well have seen an emergency extension of the lockdown with even tougher restrictions and so as the vote did go through it means that from today our shops, churches, sports clubs, gyms, hairdressers and beauty salons are all thankfully able to re-open.


Most businesses are now open from today

To summarise, from today:

•   All shops can open again
Hairdressers and beauty salons can open again
Outdoor sport such as golf and tennis can open again
Gyms and other leisure facilities can open again
‘Stay at home’ message ends
•   Our churches can open again
Weddings can take place again

280256 Paul, replying to Paul, 1, #1021 of 2196 🔗

Part 2 of my MPs response,

Financial support for hospitality

It does however mean that our pubs, restaurants and bars can still only operate a take-away service at this time. While nothing makes up for the ability to open the doors and trade as in pre-COVID times, there are a series of measures that have been put in place to support their finances such as:

  • VAT cut to 5%
  • the furlough scheme enabling staff wages to be met
  • up to £3,000 a month in cash grants to help cover the cost of rent payments


From the beginning, I have fought for our businesses and residents who have been impacted by this awful virus and that work continues. For full details of the financial support available please visit: https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus/business-support

This has been an incredibly difficult time for everybody, over 58,000 people have lost their lives, businesses have closed, and our everyday freedoms restricted.

The vaccine news today offers clear light at the end of the tunnel and marks an opportunity for us to move forward, reclaim our lives and get our economy moving again. Like you, I am fed up, frustrated and want this all to be over. We will get through this – gladly there are brighter days ahead.

With very best wishes and thanks again for getting in touch.

At our favourite restaurant,on a Wednesday evening at this time last year they would have had around 100 covers and probably a christmas party in the function room,tonight if they are lucky they might do 10 or so takeaways,so I would say the ‘financial assistance’ is an insult.

there seem to be different ‘restrictions’ for different areas so I took the first one for Blekinge County

All seems to be advice ‘if possible, minimize…etc’

the only ‘restriction’ appears to be

“As of 24 November 2020, a maximum of 8 persons is allowed at public gatherings and events. This also applies to seated audiences. This restriction is applicable until further notice. An exception is made for funerals, where a maximum of 20 persons is allowed.

But nothing about your own home and no businesses closed

There is “ If possible, avoid physical contact with people other than those in your own household.” but if this isn’t a law, then it carries as much weight as ‘try and eat 5 portions of fruit and veg a day’

280364 ▶▶▶▶ Lockdown_Lunacy, replying to steve_w, #1082 of 2196 🔗

No worries. Yeah, that’s how I read them too.

Everything seems to be advice apart from this ‘8 rule’ in public places and the denial of entry to non-EU (excluding a few select countries) citizens. The second one seems like more of an EU thing as Sweden hasn’t ‘enhanced’ it in any way through testing of travellers etc, nor does it ask its own citizens to quarantine when returning.

EU criticises ‘hasty’ UK approval of Covid-19 vaccine
https://www.rte.ie/news/coronavirus/2020/1202/1181886-coronavirus-vaccine-eu/

Couple of quotes:
“I consider this decision to be problematic and recommend that EU member states do not repeat the process in the same way,” said MEP Peter Liese, who is a member of German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s party.
“A few weeks of thorough examination by the European Medicines Agency is better than a hasty emergency marketing authorisation of a vaccine,” said Mr Liese, who represents the centre right grouping, the largest in the EU Parliament.

So I wonder what has the MHRA reviewed exactly and what have they skipped on?

Johnson has far more political dissension to consider in his Party than Merkel in hers.

Maybe, that’s why he’s in a hurry.

Or maybe the Germans are invested in another vaccine and therefore miffed.

If an effective vaccine is so important, then why hasn’t the Russian vaccine, which was unveiled months ago, been licensed – with any fees the Russians want – by the UK, and been produced.

After all, this is all about saving human lives.

Isn’t it?

Whilst I respect people who are anti vaccine, I am not anti vaccine myself and I hope this vaccine works for people who choose to take it. As someone who believes in vaccines I think the UK’s decision to unilaterally grant an emergency license for this vaccine is utterly stupid and potentially disastrous for future vaccine take up.

The MHRA has some very penetrating questions to answer about the normal framework for the approval of medicines.

Was this (basically international) framework so unnecessary that it could be abandoned on a whim to combat a non-High Consequence Infectious Disease that, for the majority of the well population <65, is usually mild in its effects?

And would any rational person curtail the testing regime to such an extent without a transparent examination of possible consequences (possibly in terms of examining the stages of previous approvals)?

Patently barking – and driven by government/provider producer interests.

Not unsurprisingly my local has decided against opening, although it does a fair trade in lunchtime and evening meals, as they calculate they will lose more money opening under Tier 2 restrictions than they would by staying shut.

Was just out in the car and half listening to Vine on R2 whilst they were talking about trials of LF tests “allowing” people to visit care homes. Vine read out a message from one listener that peaked my interest. I’m paraphrasing but:

I’ve already had covid, but I’ve been told that I cannot have another test for 90 days because it could come back as a false positive (so I still can’t visit granny etc.)

280393 Bartleby, replying to Bartleby, 14, #1145 of 2196 🔗

I quite often see people stating things such as: If this wasn’t a serious pandemic or threat, why would we be taking these actions, or, all countries are trying to do something and restricting freedoms and so on. Both of these statements are meant to imply that because everyone is doing something, and because something is being done, then it must be right to do something/anything.

I think though that this misses out a really important nuanced piece of context, which is the motivation involved.

The primary motivation of all politicians in any country now appears to be that they don’t want to take responsibility and to avoid blame as much as possible. In fact, not just politicians, but nearly all of the official government-advising scientists too.

How and why did this happen?

Firstly, the politicians quickly realised that the more they could claim to be following the scientific advice, the harder it would be to make the blame game stick. If any of them had any doubts about how the blame game would be played, the democratic tactics in the US election would surely have got rid of those when it came to using covid-19 as a powerful blaming weapon.

That’s why politicians everywhere quickly started to use phrases such as ‘we’re being advised’ or ‘we’re following the science’.

Cast your minds back to March and April, and you will recall how the ‘Science’ then started to react to that. They became uncomfortable, then they started to feed stories about how the science wasn’t being followed. In some cases they tried to claim that they advised certain actions which weren’t followed, despite the various releases of SAGE & SPI-X information which didn’t back up their claims. When they realised that the politicians had put them firmly in the firing line, they too started to act like they didn’t want to be blamed, and that in turn led to the ridiculous behaviours, policies and restrictions we’ve seen put in place in many countries around the world since that point, simply to avoid responsibility. Many scientists changed their pronouncements from tried and tested pandemic handling policies to ulta risk-averse, precautionary principle motivations. As did the WHO and many others.

And what kept that going and helped to exacerbate it? The Media and the Covid Death Porn that took over. Unrelenting focus on deaths, cases, comparisons between countries, regions, towns, genders, cultures, and in a similar way, social media with it’s mob mentality of ‘blood on your hands’ coloured-commentary whipping up anger and blame that allows for no balance or nuance in the approach and was seen as another weapon in the agenda of identity politics for many vociferous social media dwellers.

It doesn’t need much more in terms of conspiracy, for sure some people are pushing their own agendas and self-interest, but looked at through this prism, we are entirely in this situation because of a fear of being blamed from public officials.

But in that analysis, is perhaps a clear path forward.

Firstly, we have to create a daily lockdown fear narrative to counter the covid narrative. That means a daily update of statistics on the following:

  • Jobs lost due to lockdowns and tier restrictions.
  • Deaths due to lockdowns and restrictions.

Secondly, we should reaffirm that we don’t hold scientists or politicians responsible for deaths from covid-19 where it’s possible to do that, but make it clear that we do hold them responsible for the death and misery caused by lockdowns and restrictions. The only way in which they will accelerate out of restrictions is if they are more scared of being blamed for that than they are of being blamed for deaths from covid.

Clearly there is frequent discussion of the impact of lockdowns, particularly on sites like this, but it’s easy to shrug off, because it still remains invisible and a problem that may be possible to address later. Missed cancer diagnosis? Let’s get the virus under control then we can try to catch up etc.

We really do need to start creating more regular consistent and easy to consume figures on the key elements of lockdown such as lost jobs and deaths.

Let the covid zealots argue about those numbers, get them to justify why someone lost their job with covid, not of covid.

What can you do? Some of it we’re doing already. The campaign of writing to MPs is a solid start, because it makes it clear that they are being held responsible. Anyone with influence in the media could make a case for a daily stat on job losses and deaths not from covid in lockdown to keep those figures top of mind and try to get those published online and everywhere.

We can ask sites such as Worldometers and Our World in Data to start giving more visibility to these metrics and make it clear there is a demand for them.

We have to do a better job of using the fear against them and counter them not by asking for evidence and arguing over their numbers, but by creating a stronger fear.

280403 ▶▶ Richard O, replying to Bartleby, 6, #1146 of 2196 🔗

Deaths and injuries due to the rushed vaccine, which is the inevitable end result of the insane politicisation you describe, should also be added to your proposed dashboard.

As well as writing to MPs, as useful as it undoubtedly is, I can see potentially that some of them feel at least relatively secure for a while, as their jobs, realistically, are not at the moment at immediate threat.
I suspect it will be equally, if nor more impactful to write similar letters at a local level. Councils are still meeting, and I’m sure at least some of them may think their positions are a bit more tenuous..esp. if people start asking awkward questions about the PCR tests & what they are basing everything on. Same with businesses, once they start to understand how the test – & all it’s associated flaws – underlines the ‘cases’ methodology, I expect them to get beyond angry, of course many are already…

If they are maskers I feel we can’t get through to them. It’s like we and they are from different planets. There’s a few friends I have dropped all together. They are Labour folks still, as I was and won’t ever be again, but I can’t believe how terrible Kier Starmer has been and now calling for censorship of debate. He has shown how authoritarian Labour would be.

And if I was to tell them I go on anti lockdown protests they would think me bonkers. I did mention to one that I don’t fellow any of the Covid rules, in fact break them most days with guests and meet ups and over night stays, and she has never replied. I suppose she imagines I would kill her with my infected breath if she were to meet up with me.

Taken from BTL comment in The Spectator.

If you are healthy and catch Covid19, the risk of dying is :
If you are less than 10 : effectively zero
If you are in your teens : 1 in a million
If you are in your 20’s : 3 in a million
If you are in your 30’s : 1 in 100,000
If you are in your 40’s : 3 in 100,000
If you are in your 50’s : 1 in 10,000
If you are in your 60’s : 3 in 10,000
If you are in your 70’s : 1 in 1,000
If you are in your 80’s : 3 in 1,000
If you are in your 90’s : 1 in 100
These numbers are based on the CDC age stratified IFR model and take account of the fact that 95% of people who die (in all age groups) have serious other health issues. Quite simply this is not something worth worrying about, compared to the huge array of normal risks we all face every day.

280474 ▶▶▶ Sceptic in Oxford, replying to Brian ‘Monty’ Cohen, 3, #1177 of 2196 🔗

It has been pointed out before in this context that you cannot reason someone out of a position that they did not reason themselves into. Your relative seems to hold the opinions she does not because of any reasoned assessment of the facts, but because she believes she should hold to those opinions because they are what good people think.

This is actually common in all areas of thuoght where there is a received elite opinion. It’s especially strong on the coronapanic, but it apples to all the “political correctness” issues. Wherever people have been indoctrinated to believe that one side of an issue is what “good people” believe and the other is only held by “bad/worthless/stupid people”.

And of course, the position is self reinforcing via the elite liberal “circle jerk” routine whereby anyone not holding the is silenced or excluded.

As the first phase of the programme is rolled out in the UK, additional data will become available on the safety and effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines.

It really means that they haven’t completed the appropriate trials, I suppose, and they know it. This rollout is the next phase of the trial in effect, with some sort of vague hopeful assumption that it’s going to turn out that it helps “preventing hospitalisation”.

And I’m not sure the trial so far really justifies that hopefulness, mind you. If I recall correctly, they did the trail with healthy people and measured whether the vaccine reduced mild symptoms, and the numbers involved – 43,500 leading to 94 positive test results with 8 of them in the vaccinated group versus 86 hence the “effectiveness” score – aren’t very persuasive. Certainly, any confidence in the idea that it would produce reductions in severe illness, hospitalisation or death seems currently unwarranted.

So are going to conduct the equivalent of staged trials by vaccinating group by group, and then course-correct as they go? Seems awfully… hacky.

Thing is people in care homes mostly can’t consent. For my own father I think we will give consent because he always had the flu vaccine willingly. I do feel sorry for care home staff and residents it is they who are going to be the guineapigs.

I am hoping someone like Tim Martin makes a clear statement that he won’t require staff or customers to need a vaccine to work for or use his pubs. He is pretty angry. If he did it I think others would follow. I don’t know how politicians can be thinking of a vaccine passport as it will be a long time if at all that people under 50 who are healthy are offered a vaccine and by that time said virus will likely be endemic and not in evidence except in winter

From what they say on pages 9 and 10 they seem to want to have a go with the vaccine on the old and sick, they are the guines pigs. Then theyll use this to gather data for the drug company before they decide how safe it is.

This is concerning using the effective C-19 antibody cocktail. A single mutation reduces the effectiveness of the treatment 100 fold. And this mutation is found in the C-19 mink strains in NL and DK and some others. Fortunately at present low level circulation of these strains.Could this also happen to vaccine induced immunity? We could have short term success with the vaccines but strains escaping immunity might have advantage of spread?

https://twitter.com/jbloom_lab/status/1333897225911508992

“Surprisingly, they found a single amino-acid mutation (E406W) can escapes both antibodies in REGN-COV2 cocktail. E406W isn’t in structural footprint of either antibody (see image), so mechanism is unclear. But it reduces cocktail neutralization by 100-fold
Finally, we used maps to see which escape mutations present in circulating SarsCov-2 Prominent ones include Y453F (associated with mink outbreaks in Denmark / Netherlands), N439K, & others (see below). But fortunately, all low frequency right now”

Just seen the dimmest Twatter comment ever on the vaccine, in response to someone’s concerns over the unusually short development time frame.

Apparently, it’s fine because they had, like, SOOO many people working on it and all resources and funding was diverted to the vaccine search, so that explains why they could do it so quickly and still test it thoroughly to ensure that it’s safe.

Presumably they also had a time machine, so that they could project into the future 5 – 10 years or so to study the long term effects. Otherwise, no matter how much money and how many people are put into the search, only 8 months have passed and only a few thousand people have been involved, which obviously tells us nothing about the long term safety.

I still don’t. I am still alive.
But I do wear a hard hat when horse riding. Horses are living creatures, therefore unpredictable, and the precaution is clearly sensible. I’d have cut my head open on one occasion if I hadn’t been stoutly hatted.
In law, you are not obliged to wear a strong hard hat when horse riding, even on a public road. A cycle helmet is sufficient.

But I do wear a hard hat when horse riding

I’ve always worn a seatbelt and crash hat (when motorcycling). An early (non-inertia reel) belt almost certainly saved my life when over exuberance saw me roll a Mk1 Mini into a ditch during my teens. Crash hats have also saved me from damage on a number of occasions when myself & bike “parted company.”

Expert points out “shaky science” behind AstraZeneca’s coronavirus vaccine trial resul ts..
.
The negatives of AstraZeneca’s coronavirus jab outweigh its supposed positives

Bastian’s article came after AstraZeneca announced Nov. 23 the results of its clinical trials for its vaccine. The announcement followed earlier updates by Pfizer and Moderna, whose mRNA-based vaccines registered more than 90 percent efficacy rates. The British firm’s jab does not require ultra-cold storage unlike the other two candidates, and is also the most affordable COVID-19 vaccine to date at £2 (US$2.66) per dose compared to Pfizer’s £15 (US$19.96) single dose price and Moderna’s £26 (US$34.60) price.

AstraZeneca’s vaccine uses a harmless adenovirus – similar to the one that causes the common cold – to deliver genetic material that prompts the body to produce proteins known as antigens. These antigens which help the immune system develop an arsenal against infection are found on the surface of the SARS-CoV-2 pathogen.

However, trials for the firm’s vaccine have hit multiple roadblocks over the past few months. Two participants experienced spinal inflammation back in September, while a third participant died during clinical trials in Brazil. Further investigation revealed that toxic ingredients in the jab such as aborted human fetal tissue played a role in the adverse effects reported following administration of the vaccine candidate.

The mRNA vaccines from BioNTech/Pfizer contain polyethylene glycol (PEG) (source Dr Mike Yeadon)

And this is what one American site says about it (just the first one I saw nothing special about the choice of sites)

You should not use this medicine if you are allergic to polyethylene glycol, or if you have a bowel obstruction or intestinal blockage. If you have any of these conditions, you could have dangerous or life-threatening side effects from polyethylene glycol 3350.

People with eating disorders (such as anorexia or bulimia) should not use this medication without the advice of a doctor.

To make sure this medicine is safe for you, tell your doctor if you have:

nausea , vomiting , or severe stomach pain;

ulcerative colitis ;

irritable bowel syndrome ;

kidney disease; or

if you have had a sudden change in bowel habits that has lasted 2 weeks or longer.

FDA pregnancy category C. It is not known whether polyethylene glycol 3350 will harm an unborn baby. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant while using this medication.

It is not known whether polyethylene glycol 3350 passes into breast milk or if it could harm a nursing baby. Tell your doctor if you are breast-feeding a baby.

NB. I am not a chemist and have very little knowledge of the subject, perhaps the numbers 3350 after the drug name mean it is something different. I would not know.

I would assume so, give it to the NHS first to see how it goes and they can slap them with an NDA to try to stop news getting out. They also probably have a higher chance of survival than the old & sick.

Thinking about it, what are the chances that the Government will allow Piers Morgan to take the real vaccine live on air? I would suggest zero. They’ll either block it or give him a placebo. If he had any adverse reaction, nobody else is going to take it.

1 Residents in a care home for older adults and their carers

2 All those 80 years of age and over, Frontline health and social care workers

3 All those 75 years of age and over

4 All those 70 years of age and over, Clinically extremely vulnerable individuals*

5 All those 65 years of age and over

I just finished watching UK Column. They began with this clip of Wankock announcing the vaccine this morning. If he hadn’t been able to create some furrows on his forehaed, I’d have sworn his entire face apart from his mouth was completely botoxed.

He says he’s “thrilled with the news” but look at his eyes.
Note also how, when he says “it will help us all get back to nomal” he’s fighting the urge to shake his head and burst into tears.

Sorry to inflict him on you but it’s only for a couple of minutes. See if you agree with me:

So maybe we won’t see such a high surge in cases as students get tested before they try to get home. The PCR tests generated thousands of so called cases in late September and October, with positivity rates of up to 20%. Lateral Flow should be less than 1% positivity, hopefully.

What would they do to us if a truly awesome contagion were to turn up?

I called the doctors surgery yesterday – for years this has needed a call at precisely 8:00AM to stand any chance of getting on the telephone queuing system. Now you have to initially explain why you want to speak to (let alone see) a doctor, and then wait for a call back. This duly came at 11:30, and was from a doctor I’ve never heard of. He agreed to order me a prescription, and I drove up to collect it after lunch. On arrival there was a queue outside the pharmacy, including a visibly agitated Royal Mail girl. She clearly only wanted to drop off some items (and is no doubt extremely busy at the moment), but only 2 are allowed inside at one time, so we all stood in the cold for several more minutes. Eventually she made her delivery, and shortly after I gained entry. Large signs said “Masks Must Be Worn” (no mention of exemptions, and I reluctantly put mine on), collected the prescription and asked how I could get a specimen jar, as signs on the main entrance say not to visit without an appointment. I was assured I could go in and ask, so I did and waited……and waited! Lots of screens to protect the office staff (who were all masked) but little sign of any “Service”. Finally I was able to approach the distancing barrier, and make my request, then had to stand back until a hatch was opened (just a little) and handed the jar. After beating a hasty retreat I was left contemplating the “NHS Doctor’s” quote above.

Ebola, anyone?

P.S. I went back this morning to hand in the specimen, and was greeted by the sight of two overweight (one seriously) nurses huddled around a car outside, then a ginormous receptionist inside – why are we constantly lectured about our health, yet their own people are some of the worst examples?

The farther from Europe the better. Countries that have more or less returned to normal and you can travel to pretty hassle free are Turkey, Egypt, Morocco, Mexico, Brazil, Tanzania, a few Caribbean countries that offer long term visas to expats and others. You may not have the living standard of Europe or US, but what is that worth without basic freedoms? Recently I was in Bangladesh and it felt 100 times freer: all the shops, restaurants, theaters, markets open, zero distancing, people shaking hands, live bands (when was the last time you saw that in Europe?), wearing of masks compulsory indoors but zero enforcement. I am sure that other countries in SE Asia will follow suit soon (Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia or Sri Lanka, I’m looking at you!). In the coming months there will be more developing countries willing to open doors to the increasing numbers of disaffected westerners. I do not think the insanity will end until the western societies are thoroughly destroyed, so whoever is capable of working “from home” ,might as well pick that home where they can still live as human beings.

A serious point for anyone on Tier 2 who has logistics or distribution as a background.

An enormous number of pubs and bars are taking the meaning of substantial meal to the bare minimum, providing perfectly edible food at cost price to people who have little to no intention to eat it and are doing so to tick one of the stupidest boxes ever thrown at the English people by the Govt.

Is there any way we could find a way to get this food to people who genuinely need it….post pub visit of course. Storing food in foil tins to keep it warm, pubs having a way that needy people living nearby can collect it, be given to homeless people sleeping nearby etc?

Have been out this PM and ordered a cheap, easily transportable and healthy dish simply to order a beer, picked at it and no more. Feel awful knowing someone nearby would relish being able to eat it and would like to see if something can be done.

Easier to pull together on a small scale, but if anyone has an idea of how to organise this regionally then it could be amazing for those who are struggling…

280695 ▶▶ Cranmer, replying to Peter, 5, #1425 of 2196 🔗

The most logical thing would be for the pubs to organise that. They could simply ‘serve’ the food and then collect it (untouched) and donate to a homeless shelter.

This helps to ensure that you, our crew and all of our passengers can travel comfortably and confidently throughout the journey.”

Apparently Doctor’s won’t provide such a thing, so not sure how that’s going to work. And yes as you say, there’s no requirement in law for any kind of cert signed by a doctor.

280748 ▶▶▶ steph, replying to Anothersceptic2, 6, #1451 of 2196 🔗

Easy enough to knock up though surely? They can’t have any mechanism for checking the validity with any particular practice so what is the point? They probably can’t even validate the “doctor” is on the medical register or working at that “practice”. Just unenforceable bullying.

Although the concept of English airspace doesn’t exist (it’s U.K. airspace) earlier this year airspace seemed to be devolved when masks were required on flights originating in England but not those originating in Wales.

https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/law-and-courts/discrimination/discrimination-because-of-disability/what-counts-as-disability-discrimination/#access_to_public_transport

Access to public transport

If you’re disabled, providers of public transport must not treat you less favourably than they would treat a person who isn’t disabled (unless they can show that the treatment is justified). They have the same duties as other providers of services.

When you travel by air, airport operators must provide services which allow you to board, disembark and transfer to another flight. They must not charge for these services.

There are also special rules protecting disabled passengers when they travel by air in Europe. Airlines and travel companies are not allowed to refuse to accept bookings from disabled passengers. This applies to all flights leaving an airport in the European Union (EU) and to any flight arriving in an EU country on an EU airline.

You need to start being more polite. I have actively resisted the lockdown measures. I haven’t worn a mask yet, and I don’t even own one.

280728 ▶▶ John P, replying to Julian, #1478 of 2196 🔗

Vaccines – if they work – should do that.

The question should be:

1) Is it safe?
2) Does it work?

280764 ▶▶▶ Julian, replying to John P, 1, #1479 of 2196 🔗

Depends what you mean by “work”.

Most people would expect it as a minimum to give them full of partial immunity, and this is what they tested it for, as I understand it.

By extension, if you are immune then you should in theory not develop any symptoms and by extension not be infectious. But this was not measured, as far as I am aware.

So claims that it’s our duty to have it to protect others are based on some logical leaps of faith rather than direct hard evidence.

“Bourla was born and raised in Thessaloniki, Greece.[2] Born into a Thessalonian Jewish family, he earned his doctorate in the biotechnology of reproduction at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki’s Veterinary School.[3] He left Greece with his wife when he was 34 and since then he has lived in seven different cities, in four different countries.”

“Bourla joined Pfizer in 1993, first serving as a doctor of veterinary medicine and technical director for the company’s animal health division in Greece.[7][8] He held multiple executive roles at Zoetis (then known as Animal Health) and other divisions of Pfizer.[7] He served as area president for Animal Health’s Europe, Africa and Middle East division during 2005–2009, followed by the Europe, Africa, and Asia Pacific division during 2009–2010.[9] In the latter role, he managed the merger of Wyeth’s Fort Dodge Animal Health business with Pfizer in these regions.[3]”
