QR codes everywhere. Store capacity limits so I have had to queue to get into shops that would otherwise be full. Greeters with hand sanitisers. Masks still required on public transport and stores. Many workplaces and churches have social distancing requirements. It’s not back to ‘normal’. More outdoor dining because that’s done abroad. There won’t be fireworks this year.

We can go for a meal now but there are of course capacity limits and you have to book and sign in with the blasted QR code.

QR Codes are a menace – they are the real virus

I’m surprised there’s not been an uprising. Hard won freedoms are being destroyed as a bull in a china shop

I read that China’s President Xi was keen on promoting QR code health passes for the rest of the world. It’s not his right to take away my rights!

I honestly think I’d rather die than to live in a future like a slave – chipped, tracked, tagged and traced by technology

F**k QR codes!

From RUPLY : “Entertainment industry employees are gathering in Paris to protest against COVID-19 restrictions on Tuesday, December 15.

Cultural venues were due to reopen on December 14, but in accordance with the latest regulations would be required to stay closed at least until the beginning of 2021.

As part of new measures coming into force on the same day, a curfew will replace the current restrictions on people’s movement, as the curve of new cases has showed the signs of flattening.”

Waning Immunity. The next big buzz word?

302330 BuildVaccineTrust, replying to BuildVaccineTrust, 24, #22 of 1665 🔗

Millions of people are lining up to get Pfizer’s COVID-19 shot without being told the FDA sees a risk they will get a more severe case of COVID-19 after the initial protection fades. Testing hasn’t lasted long enough to find out. If the public isn’t warned about *all* risks now, they may not trust vaccines even if full testing demonstrates them to be safe.

The UK, US and Canadian governments provide documents for patients and health care workers explaining the vaccine. Yet as of Dec. 12th, 2020: none of those mention this important issue acknowledged by the US government only in sources most people will never read.

The non-partisan US government’s Congressional Research Service explained : “experts are concerned about the potential for vaccine enhanced disease, in which vaccination could worsen the health effects of COVID-19 infections […]. Animal studies of other coronavirus vaccines have found some potential for vaccine enhanced disease”

A medical journal says after the dengue vaccine’s initial effect faded “vaccinated children in the 2–5 year age group, were found to be nearly 8 times likely to be hospitalized for severe dengue, compared to children in the placebo group”.

The FDA’s initial review of the Pfizer and BiNTech vaccine says its makers “identified vaccine-associated enhanced disease including vaccine-associated enhanced respiratory disease as an important potential risk.” and the FDA adds “risk of vaccine-enhanced disease over time, potentially associated with waning immunity, remains unknown and needs to be evaluated further in ongoing clinical trials and in observational studies”. Unfortunately the short testing period wasn’t long enough to assess the risk.

Media in countries hit hard by COVID-19 haven’t called attention to the issue to date. In contrast a Japanese paper quoted the director of the Japanese Society of Clinical Virology: “Concerns over ADE still remain. I am an elderly person myself, but if I were asked, I would say I don’t want to get a shot.” Elsewhere he explained : “In the past, a dengue vaccine proved effective in tests and was widely used, but then it worsened symptoms for people who were still getting infected.”. A leading professor of Immunology testified to Japan’s House of Representatives: “There’s no doubt that their effectiveness is quite high, but their safety is not guaranteed at all”.

Hopefully continued testing will discover COVID-19 vaccines are safe over the long run, but they don’t understand COVID-19 well enough to predict that. More info at BuildVaccineTrust.com

303021 ▶▶▶ Cheezilla, replying to Two-Six, #33 of 1665 🔗

There were a couple of papers that found there was a correlation between last year’s flu jab and covid severity. One was from the Pentagon.
Anyone have the links to hand?

303252 ▶▶▶▶ Binra, replying to Cheezilla, 2, #34 of 1665 🔗

Flu vax is known to suppress the current year such that respiratory disease is increased through other vectors – or corona. (suggesting ‘disease’ is actually a health function). I have seen reports of the injected strain being worse in the next year season.
The principle bioweapon is the narrative by which to generate the undermining of immunity under the pretext of supply it.
It is a model of induced and captive dependency or as once described a devil’s pact.
I didn’t find a direct link as you suggest, but covid stats are everything and nothing. How much ‘severity’ is iatrogenic of some other disease being assigned as ‘covid’?

I have read of back doors in computer operating systems that each in themselves doesn’t offer a hack, but to an insider can be used in combination to hack or corrupt and compromise the system.
I have the same regard for negative syneries of toxic exposure, each of which alone cannot be definitively proven to be the cause of damage to their target population.

Local main regional hospital goes into Opel 4, the highest level of alert previously known as Black Alert.
After some mention of Winter Pressure and increased Covid admissions we learn that 614 staff are absent for Covid related reasons plus a further 412 absences for other reasons = 1,026 non-workers.

I have not been able to find out how many work at that hospital but it has just over 1,000 beds. Let’s say total 3 staff per patient which means 30%+ absenteeism just because Johnny got sent home from school after his classmate had a runny nose.

Because there are so many test-result and other absences, those left at work are obviously rushed off their feet (she works night shift, should be two at least on ward, but this year often on her own, enormous stress), which means they also become so utterly exhausted (physically and mentally) that they end up off work as well.

Round and round and round we go…

Just stop the testing.

A clinical nurse friend is off work due to stress as are two others in her department. No one has been off for any reason with covid.

So true. My wife works in the third sector for a registered charity delivering care and educational services for autistic service users. Several weeks ago they had almost 400 (40%) staff absences due to positive tests, isolation and those running scared! Consequently, some services had to be suspended with many service users asked not to come in. Of course, this disruption to routine is amplified for the already disadvantaged autistic service user.

It is all madness on steroids!

So people have been allowed out to go shopping and get hopeful about a family Xmas, before they talk of now cancelling it again, now that the all important shopping is done.
Mortality stays at usual seasonal level, if not lower, yet people are not sufficiently scared anymore and may be reluctant to take Dr JW Pennebaker’s miracle elixir cure-all wonder drug, so why not use your position as a government “advisor” to use your platform in the media to start demanding once again that xmas is cancelled.

Of course the government is saying that the current vaccine does still work against this ‘mutant’ strain, but how can it? Every year a new vaccine has to be created for new strains of flu and people know this, so how can THIS virus be different?

Viruses never have 2nd, 3rd, 4th waves etc… So if Feb 2021 is predicted as the next one, I’m wondering if really this will really be a cover up for the extra deaths caused by the vaccine. The risk of vaccine enhanced disease as mentioned below and has been mentioned several times before. Certain Scientists predict an overreaction to the common cold (or another coronavirus) as a resultt of this vaccine and deaths as a result (e.g. from Sepsis) are predicted after Christmas and into the Spring.

Apologies if this has been mentioned already but I don’t have time to read all comments and keep forgetting to get a screenshot.
Has anyone else seen the NHS advert that pops up in your twitter feed that says something like ‘Covid vaccine has now been approved and is rolling out across the country’?
Is this not what is now referred to as ‘misinformation’ as I was led to believe it will not actually be properly approved until possibly at least a years time and has only been given a temporary licence to be distributed under emergency legislation.

There is a refreshing honesty in Sweden:

‘Even though there are currently only 80-90 coronavirus patients being treated in intensive care in Stockholm compared to a peak of 230 in the spring, there are many more patients with other conditions needing emergency treatment.

“What we have now that we didn’t have in the spring is that there are many people seeking other types of acute care. That went down completely for several weeks in the spring,” he (Regional Health Chief) said.’


‘….with temporary field hospitals dismantled over the summer and some other emergency measures no longer in place, the country has less intensive care beds available while there is a resurgence in cases.’

‘During the spring peak, Sweden more than doubled its available intensive care places after mounting an impressive operation to increase the number to 1,100.

According to the latest figures from the National Board of Health and Welfare, Sweden on Wednesday December 9th had 673 intensive care beds equipped with a ventilators.’

‘According to the latest figures from the Swedish Board of Health and Welfare, 550 of the intensive care beds equipped with a ventilator were occupied on Wednesday December 9th, of which 261 were filled with patients with Covid-19.

This amounts to 18 percent spare capacity.’

‘Stockholm’s hospitals director Björn Eriksson told Dagens Nyheter that it was primarily a lack of trained staff that was limiting the number of intensive care places.’

‘….it might be hard to free up armed forces medical personnel, as most were reserve officers who are already working as nurses and doctors in Sweden’s hospitals.’


Let me get this straight…….winter health panic requires more hospital capacity………then summer so get rid of hospital capacity…….then winter health panic requires more hospital capacity………

Could there be a fundamental flaw in the OODA loop?

Maybe it should include something before the A, like. maybe, an E for ‘Engage brain’………..

EVERY YEAR there is a “new variant” of a coronavirus or a rhinovirus causing lots of people to feel rotten. In the past we’ve called it “that nasty cold virus that’s going round” and it hasn’t been rebranded with scary names and plastered across the front pages, been first point of business on parliament’s agenda, and turned people into dissociated psychotic animals. Calling children “super spreaders” is the beginning of the end. I am terrified for them. Animals have more rights. They will be banned from going to school, locked up with traumatised parents, and those who survive the suicide attempts will be so mentally scarred, they will unfortunately go on to do great harm to themselves and others. This is a war. You have two choices. Get up and fight (in this war, by challenging every insane regulation, talking to family and neighbours, constantly contradicting the sinister narrative, helping anyone you see who’s lost their minds to this) or watch the human race slowly disappear.

Yesterday I walked by Waitrose and there was a queue of people in masks outside. Four or five people back in the queue, an elderly man was standing hunched over with his hands on a walking frame. Wearing a mask. In the freezing cold. A security guard was manning the entrance, letting people in slowly. I marched up to him and demanded he let the elderly man in immediately. I went and guided the man into the shop, and then turned around to the queue of people and shouted at them, “What the hell is wrong with you that you can stand there and do NOTHING and say NOTHING while someone suffers?!” They were clearly shocked. They thought that putting masks on their faces made them good people. No. The masks are evil. First they make people lose their voices, then their minds, then their humanity.

303588 ▶▶ BuildVaccineTrust, replying to CivilianNotCovidian, 1, #162 of 1665 🔗

An article in the International Journal of Clinical Practice recently regarding:

“Informed consent disclosure to vaccine trial subjects of risk of COVID‐19 vaccines worsening clinical disease”

says the vaccine trial participants were not fully informed about the risks in the way medical ethics would dictate. Yet those taking the vaccine now aren’t being informed at all about the risk of vaccine enhanced disease, nor is the media telling them they are essentially lab rats participating in the ongoing trials.

The FDA’s review and authorization documents for the vaccine acknowledge that Pfizer and the FDA see an “important risk” of future vaccine enhanced disease that isn’t yet known since the trials are ongoing. Yet the FDA provided information for vaccine recipients says *nothing* about this risk.

Out of frustration I collected links to government documents and scientific journal articles on this issue and created a site with more information and a petition, this is the start of it:

Millions of people are lining up to get Pfizer’s COVID-19 shot without being told the FDA sees a risk they will get a more severe case of COVID-19 after the initial protection fades. Testing hasn’t lasted long enough to find out. If the public isn’t warned about *all* risks now, they may not trust vaccines even if full testing demonstrates them to be safe.
The UK, US and Canadian governments provide documents for patients and health care workers explaining the vaccine. Yet as of Dec. 12th, 2020: none of those mention this important issue acknowledged by the US government only in sources most people will never read.
The non-partisan US government’s Congressional Research Service explained : “experts are concerned about the potential for vaccine enhanced disease, in which vaccination could worsen the health effects of COVID-19 infections […]. Animal studies of other coronavirus vaccines have found some potential for vaccine enhanced disease”
A medical journal says after the dengue vaccine’s initial effect faded “vaccinated children in the 2–5 year age group, were found to be nearly 8 times likely to be hospitalized for severe dengue, compared to children in the placebo group”.
The FDA’s initial review of the Pfizer and BiNTech vaccine says its makers “identified vaccine-associated enhanced disease including vaccine-associated enhanced respiratory disease as an important potential risk.” and the FDA adds “risk of vaccine-enhanced disease over time, potentially associated with waning immunity, remains unknown and needs to be evaluated further in ongoing clinical trials and in observational studies”. Unfortunately the short testing period wasn’t long enough to assess the risk.
Media in countries hit hard by COVID-19 haven’t called attention to the issue to date. In contrast a Japanese paper quoted the director of the Japanese Society of Clinical Virology: “Concerns over ADE still remain. I am an elderly person myself, but if I were asked, I would say I don’t want to get a shot.” Elsewhere he explained : “In the past, a dengue vaccine proved effective in tests and was widely used, but then it worsened symptoms for people who were still getting infected.”. A leading professor of Immunology testified to Japan’s House of Representatives: “There’s no doubt that their effectiveness is quite high, but their safety is not guaranteed at all”.
Hopefully continued testing will discover COVID-19 vaccines are safe over the long run, but they don’t understand COVID-19 well enough to predict that. More info and the source links for all of this at BuildVaccineTrust.com

I hate to disappoint you, but they’ll bring up any number of excuses not to have elections now, including next May. I know from sources behind the curtain that Germany is planning on postponing it’s general election due next August. They can’t possibly allow the people to have their say now, for it would shine a very big beacon of light on how much governments are despised round the world.

What will happen instead is a huge wave of civil disorder, once the days get lighter and warmer next year. All other options have been closed. We should start to see revolutions around the world in 2021, not a moment too soon.

302590 ▶▶▶ JanMasarykMunich, replying to anti_corruption_tsar, 9, #167 of 1665 🔗

Would be interested to know what your ‘behind the curtain sources’ are.

Personally, I would be delighted if the current German government coalition were to suffer a massive election defeat. But my feeling is that, unfortunately, they (including their ‘unofficial’ — but agenda setting — partner — the Greens) still have enough support, so they will actually have no need to delay any election. If they did, it would be a massive step.

I am not a fan of revolution, but we certainly do need to sort out the institutionalized (‘legal’) corruption where key decision makers have massive financial interests.

On civil unrest, it is interesting that WEF has moved its meeting to Singapore. They have cited Covid safety concerns over the ‘high infection rate’ in CH. But, the truth may well be that they have entirely different safety concerns. Certainly, both my wife and I were planning to go down there to protest this year. And, until this year (anti Covid terror protests here in CH), the last time I protested was against Maggie Thatcher and the last time she did was Nov 1989 in CzSlo. And I don’t think we are the only ones. In the comments pages in Swiss MSM media on the report there were more people saying; ‘Shame, I was planning to go and protest, even though I never normally do’. They can certainly police Singapore much more effectively.

Also comments pages on Covid items in CH MSM recently being shut down. Which indicates change of public mood.

In the attached pic the most disgraceful piece of propaganda circulating in the US sent by a friend in Chicago. Words fail me.The current situation in the US is;

”With 17 days to go, and taking into account the rising trend year over year, we are looking at no excess deaths in the US for 2020:

2013: 2,596,993
2014: 2,626,418
2015: 2,712,630
2016: 2,744,248
2017: 2,813,503
2018: 2,839,205
2019: 2,855,000
2020: as of December 14th total deaths= 2,748,341


If this bears out – with no excess deaths – then it will be slightly surprising, given the panic and fear induced reluctance to use health care facilities, the excess use of ventilators, as well as the other horrors of lockdown

Where I live in Aylesbury Vale – we have 167,000 people. Official stats show 120 deaths. That is probably 110 deaths of old age (with covid as a complicating factor) and 10 deaths of 60 year olds with some comorbidities. It is unnoticeable. In that time about 2,000 will have naturally died of old age

302406 ▶▶ Henry, replying to alw, 2, #172 of 1665 🔗

Our son and his wife and our 2 grandsons are flying of to Uganda after Christmas for an overseas work assignment and we will not see them for a long time. They are planning to come here for Christmas, we have gone into purdah over the last week to ensure this visit is not jeopardised, NHS test and trace is hopefully cancelled on the phone. If they cancel Christmas I am rather afraid that the quote above may become more than academic as far as we are concerned.

I used to think that when the stats got better it would all improve, when we proved the PCR test was leading us up the garden path it would all change but no such thing. I now think that if this ever going to change it needs to be the people that do it, there do seem to be quite a lot of people who are just going along with this but would chuck it over if they thought everyone else would do the same. Whether this will happen I don’t know? will I be around to see it if it does? again who knows?

Looking at the Worldometer statistics, Covid deaths in the UK seem to have been reasonably flat at around 500 a day for the past five weeks. That is very suspicious. It indicates an R value of 1 which is not changing, which is also not credible. Much more likely is that there is a systemic misattribution of deaths from other causes as Covid deaths.

302374 ▶▶ Charlie Blue, replying to Mars-in-Aries, 3, #188 of 1665 🔗

I feel sure you are correct about misattribution elevating numbers. But would it be that strange for them to be pretty consistent (if lower) over the winter season with an endemic virus? Don’t know the answer, just curious.

all cause deaths have been a couple of thousand a week over the 5 year average for a few weeks. down a bit last week. latest numbers out this morning. I would have expected increased mortality from the hammering peoples immune systems have taken from being locked inside under extreme stress.

Some people have commented that the changes this year would have allowed Dr Shipman to have got away with it!
Various people, including care home staff, can pronounce people dead, the doctors job is to give the cause of death. Once a death certificate has been issued it is then the job of the surviving relatives to register the death.

Now we have normalish winter mortality. In any other year this would go unnoticed – just some BBC news about pressure on NHS that we get every year.

I suspect the vaccine won’t be as good as they hope and with worse side-effects than they claim.

All for a disease with lower overall mortality than Asian flu or Hong Kong flu.

I’m available for typesetting and formatting tasks, if anyone has something they want laid out. Just mention my name in a post and I’ll find it.

I have often thought of creating some leaflets myself instead of just spewing my vitriol in posters, but I find the problem is coming up with a convincing argument to put in front of the muppets.

You’ve got to hand it to our oppressors: making this all about “the vulnerable” was a masterstroke. Anything said against the official narrative can be silenced through the simple expedient of, “But what about granny?”

On the few occasions I have tried to convert a muppet, the discussion proceeds quite nicely, lots of head nodding about damage to society and BBC fear narrative, but it always gets to a point where the muppet needs to make that final leap from agreeing with me to actually changing their own mind, and it’s at that point that their ego defence comes to the rescue and holds up granny as the shield to protect them from admitting to themselves that they’ve been duped.

And even if I get past the granny thing (by mentioning recent bad flu seasons or QALYs), the final objection is always, “But why would the government do this to us?”

In a way, the why-they-do-this argument is harder to counter than the granny argument because it requires the muppet to cast the government in a negative light. And to my great surprise, many, many people seem to actually believe that the government is some kind of benevolent entity sent from the heavens to protect us, instead of realising that they are just a loosely-coupled bunch of humans with the same aspirations and failings that humans have always had but with the unfortunate extra property of having power over people like you and me.

I myself have no problem seeing the government as evil because since my earliest days I have resisted the imposition of other people’s authority on me. Consequently, I have trouble constructing an argument to convince government loyalists of the malfeasance that is all about us.

And there’s another problem, too. The more blatant the malfeasance gets, the easier it is for the perpetrators to get away with it. It reminds me of the old joke: “If you owe the bank ten pounds, that’s your problem. If you owe the bank ten million pounds, that’s their problem.”

Paradoxically, the bigger and more horrible this situation gets, the harder it is to convince people that it’s all for nothing. Perhaps this is an expression of proportionality bias . Actually, if you look down the list of cognitive biases , it reads like an instruction book for running a scamdemic. I have read that George Orwell wrote 1984 as a warning, but I do wonder if all he did was create a Haynes Manual for sociopaths.

So, long story short: happy to help but don’t know what to say.

Had a bizarre encounter with a visitor today who stormed into my area (multi-media guides) and was going batshit crazy that people weren’t anti-social distancing. I calmly recommended that she start at the end of the exhibition (which is usually quiet) and go backwards. I also suggested that she convert her ticket to a One Year Pass but she was having none of it, wailing that the other visitors had ruined her day. After speaking to my duty manager, she agreed to have her ticket stamped to return another day (the exhibition is running for a long time).

Since when did people stopped thinking or using their brains and common sense?

And if she’s so concerned about others not anti-social distancing, why doesn’t she stay at home?

As discussed in today’s piece, the role played by the Behavioural Insights Team in this crime is most disturbing, chilling even.

Whilst much flak has been rightly directed at the Hancocks, Fergusons, Whittys, Vallances and Johnsons, the behaviour of these people has in my view not attracted sufficient attention and commentary. It seems to me that their behaviour has been cynical, irresponsible, and deeply unethical.

They have shown themselves to be a threat and danger to society, and must be held to account for what they have done. I hope the Lockdown Sceptics site does not forget this.

Whilst I am here I’d like to thank all sceptics who regularly post, plus Toby and his crew for helping maintain my sanity during this outrage. Without the regular blog I think I’d be suffering significantly more with mental health issues and a loss of spirit. At least I know I’m not alone in thinking this whole affair is bogus.

Good to see the spoons poster by my favourite table. Perkin boasts about being an XR activist. A typical Lib Dem waste of space. At the last council meeting I went to they spent most of it agreeing that the council should serve vegan food in future although they agreed that staff and visitors (we have a twin town in France) wouldn’t be forced to eat it. The Guildhall was so hot (in February) that they all sat there in their shirt sleeves. So much for saving the planet.

This is never going away. They’ve come for us. Our cars are going, our boilers are going, our freedom has gone, our right to move around has gone, we’ve to be tracked,traced and medicated, our bank accounts will be raided, our free speech is now hate speech, our children are not to be educated, the NHS is shut, you’ve to be forced a vaccine the company who made it haven’t shown us a single piece of science behind it. No one wants to see it but let me tell you the only way out of this is to destroy them. Those of us who don’t want the technocratic nightmare will be living in the woods. We can’t fight them with guns, we can never win a war but what we can do is take down the communications. We must shut down the internet, mobile phones and TV. It’s their weakest link. When the time comes you’ll see i’m right. You’ll have to choose, is it no central heating, no car, government job, no property rights or is it fighting for your life?

The horrible, brutal juxtaposition. Coming from a lovely dream back into the waking world

This world used to be beautiful

303135 ▶▶ DomW, replying to Ben, 8, #260 of 1665 🔗

The world is still beautiful.

I live on the edge of West London and went on a 3 hour walk this morning starting in the local park with my partner. There we hand fed squirrels (well, some were hand fed) then I went on alone down to the canal and along to another park to feed coots, ducks, moorhens, geese, swans (and more squirrels), and chatted to a couple of other people who were around. The just risen sun shining through the tops of trees made for an intense and vibrant scene of light, shade, colour, structure and space unmatched by anything I will ever see on a computer or phone screen.

This particular route runs alongside (and under) one of the major routes into London and can be quite noisy so I had an audio soundtrack for my journey. This included many tracks with which I have a strong emotional connection, in particular the opening few tracks from a huge music event I was at last year with 10s of thousands of others, which I recall now with intense happiness and also sadness, as I don’t expect I will get to experience anything like that again.

At various points in this journey I couldn’t help but marvel at the beauty which is still there behind all the madness and bullshit and which cares nothing for rules and dictats, and to be grateful that I’m able, today at least, to experience this wonder. I’m not ashamed to admit this brought me to tears more than once mainly tears of gratitude but also occasionally of loss

The final (mercifully short) part of the walk brought me back with a bump to the “waking world” you mention, as this took me back to the streets and the living-dead victims of the information and spiritual war we find ourselves in.

I manged a weak smile at the street-walking voluntarily muzzled as they passed. This is progress for me as until very recently all they got was an icy stare directed at their symbols of enslavement. I had a lady walk into the front of someone’s garden as I passed her (“there’s really no need to do that” I said), a gent who walked into the road to avoid passing me on the pavement, going round two cars to rejoin the same pavement (“really?”) but I lost it when someone passing by (unmasked) twisted his neck off to one side, exorcist style, with a mixture of disgust and terror on his face. He got, at increasing volume levels “Really?”, “Seriously” and finally “You need to stop watching the bloody news, mate!” at which point I realised he had headphones on so probably hadnt heard a thing.

Yes, the world has gone mad, and many seem to be doing their very best, intentionally or otherwise, to create hell on earth for all of us, themselves included. I get caught up in it frequently and have faced periods of despair throughout. I’ve also behaved in ways towards people that I’m not proud of because I think I can “wake them up”, something I now realise is largely futile and often unkind, but will probably find myself doing again thanks to the emotional tourettes I seem to suffer from!

However, my walks and my music serve to remind me the world is still beautiful, to me at least, so long as I’m looking in the right places.

Don’t give up, get through the hard days, and find beauty and joy where you can.

Glad that today’s news item started with Hancock’s dodgy claim that there a new variant of coronavirus in the South with increased transmissibility .

It’s looking clear that there is no evidence at all for increased transmissibilit y.

Francois Balloux is clearly worth reading in relation to the genomics and his link to the COG-UK Consortium statement clarifies that for me


Hancock’ seems to be basing his argument that there is a new variant with increased transmissibility not on any genomics at all but on the un-evidenced belief that there is significantly increased transmission going on in the South. Certainly there are many mutations going on at a relatively consistently slow rate and various strains become a higher % of all strains seen in certain areas, but that’s nothing new.

COG-UK can’t say ‘Hancock’s talking nonsense’ as such, given the Consortium gets £20 million of funding from the Department of Health and Social Care. So instead they dodge increased transmission. So they can’t say ‘currently no evidence for increased transmission, it’s very unlikely’ but they can say ‘no evidence it will render vaccines less effective’. And so they say

Efforts are under way to confirm whether or not any of these mutations are contributing to increased transmission. There is currently no evidence that this variant (or any other studied to date) has any impact on disease severity, or that it will render vaccines less effective, although both questions require further studies performed at pace. We will provide further updates as our investigations proceed .

But you can read between the lines and as an individual without conflicts of interest realise that expert opinion is suggesting Hancock, the compulsive liar, is talking nonsense as always, to create a further fallacious argument for putting London into tier 3.

In summary it seems to me there is no evidence at all for a new variant with increased transmissibility .

20,000 with the vaccine 20,000 without the vaccine. Health outcomes monitored at intervals of 3, 6, 9, 12 months. This is simple research that is being left undone by the government. Can sceptics step in to fill the research gap?

Running such a study is far outside anything of my own knowledge but can we not organise a voluntarly control with the none vaccinated so we have comparable data against the vaccinated.

Israeli researchers make breakthrough in analysis of Track and Trace data

Researchers at the world renowned Skcollob Institute have been examining legacy Track and Trace data and have made an amazing discovery

Track and Trace data from a Bethlehem inn for the year 01BC show glaring data omissions.

Professor Tuntun from the Institute explained:

‘It is known from researching census records that a family from Nazareth were staying on the 24th and 25th December and yet they do not appear in the Track and Trace data

Anecdotal information suggests that the family may have done a cash deal with the inn keeper and were therefore not recorded for reasons of tax evasion

We know that a few weeks later a pop group The Three Kings turned up in Bethlehem promoting their Christmas No 1 and there are also no Track and Trace or tax records for them either

This new research sheds new light on the recorded data and warrants further investigation’

Professor Tuntun added ‘This is vital research and we have just submitted an application to the British Government for a further £4bn of funding’

302487 ▶▶ Will, replying to NorthumbrianNomad, 12, #325 of 1665 🔗

To be fair, the Telegraph have just posted this opinion piece:

The inclusion of London in the Tier 3 restrictions is an unmitigated disaster for the capital’s hospitality industry, which was already struggling to survive after two lockdowns. The calamity inflicted on pubs and restaurants in Manchester, Birmingham and elsewhere is now to be visited upon Europe’s biggest and most culturally vibrant city.
Yet there is no evidence that shutting down these settings once again will make any difference. Cases are rising rapidly in London predominantly among schoolchildren, most of whom do not go to these outlets.
Any hope theatres had of staying open over Christmas have been dashed as well, even though they are unlikely to be spreaders of the virus and have spent a fortune making themselves Covid-secure.
The Government has always maintained that the principal metric used to direct its policy is pressure on the NHS, yet the capital’s hospitals are not currently overwhelmed because very few young people with Covid end up in them.
That cases are rising should not itself be a reason for tougher controls unless it is accompanied by unsustainable pressures in hospitals and excessive fatalities.

Moreover, this flip-flopping from lockdown to reopening and back to shutdown within the space of a few weeks is devastating because opening and closing businesses is expensive. It is estimated that, in London, £2.7 billion will be lost by the hospitality sector, with a possible 160,000 redundancies by the new year. Yet there is no obvious rationale behind closing these settings while allowing potentially crowded shops to remain open.
The Government encouraged a belief that Christmas would be as “normal” as possible, but the greater part of the population now lives under the strictest controls. The only way out of this impasse is the vaccine, yet its efficacy is now being questioned by the disclosure of a variant Covid mutation in the South East.
Matt Hancock, the Health Secretary, raised this concern only then to insist that it would not make the vaccine less effective. He risked triggering uncalled-for alarm in order to justify tougher measures. The important thing now is not to do anything that would cast doubt over the vaccine unnecessarily.

The vaccine should be an irrelevance but, because of the psychological warfare that has been inflicted upon the population, it really is the only way out. Just look at the polls showing the significant proportion of the population who think 7% of the population have died of Covid.

Has anyone cleverer than me managed to breakdown the deaths in the autumn/ winter compared to the deaths in the spring? It would be very interesting to see how many people under the age of 60, without comorbidities, have died since September 1st. I doubt it is more than a hundred.

In hospitals in England, 67 people under age 60 between 9th September and 9th December have died with a ‘positive covid-19’ test without pre-existing conditions

You can get this data by going to


And downloading the weekly file at 10th December. And then searching to find the old file at 10th September (I can’t find the 3rd September file) and subtracting

67 = 58 (age 40-59) + 7 (age 20-39) + 2(age 0-19)

Yes – except I’ve not done it specifically by age.

But I’ve no reason to believe that would change the known pattern of age-related mortality, given that it emphasizes the ‘dry tinder’ effect of 2018/19.

In overall terms, looking at the ‘infection season’ just shows how unremarkable was the winter/spring of 2019/20 in terms of all-cause mortality, ranking 8th in the quarter century.

Interesting question, no easy answers. Some of these years had bad seasonal flu epidemics which might explain some of the higher months deaths. (We used to say in Sweden at my hospital that when the flu peak arrived before Christmas it was always worse). But this cannot be the whole explanation that you see a considerable extra mortality in 1980s in all years. The pharmaco- industrial complex would let you believe that superior drugs and medical intervention was behind the less deaths afterwards. That myth has been debunked by others. Now we are in the more interesting speculative area. The Spanish flu 1918 affected the generation born 1900-1930 very heavily. They had an over mortality in 1980s which might have been result of the Spanish flu progressing atherosclerosis and ensuing heart deaths in 1980s. There are several articles about this subject. Sorry mentioning this perhaps feeding the nutters in the C-19 casedemic.

So the ludicrous government has lied to put London in lockdown.

I have tried to find the number of tests by region, virtually impossible to find. Can anyone find the test figures by day for London, up to date ? Why aren’t they on the NHS dashboard. Just the number of cases per region – meaningless without a denominator – the sound of one hand clapping ?

Looking at the local numbers for the boroughs: Barnet positive test rate down from 9.4% to 9.0% for the week to 5 December, Camden down from 6% to 5% for the week to 6 December.

Why are the government trying to destroy the country’s greatest city because of an illness that has had virtually no impact on death numbers for the year ?

Our useless local MP, who doesn’t even turn up to toe the party line, but does so by proxy loves shroud waving and cheerleading the NHS.

Why are the MSM and MPs not demanding action on infection control? If hospital beds are occupied by people that caught the disease there in the first place then NHS incompetent management needs telling to stop whinging about being overwhelmed and act on areas within their control.

Regarding the Sale pub “ Simon worries that even if the region is moved down to Tier 2, many of his local punters don’t have the income to support buying a ‘substantial meal’ every time they want a drink.”. While income is an important factor, it sounds the sort of pub where people have their tea at home and go out later for a game of darts/pool/watch the football . I’d guess food is crisps, pork scratchings and maybe a pork pie or sausage roll. Elf and safety has probably put paid to a hastily made up ham or cheese sandwich.But even in tier 1 you can only sit inside with your household, can’t sit at the bar ,need a face nappy to enter /exit/go to toilet.

What if I don’t get vaccinated. I don’t get any symptoms. Vaccine has worked?

Somebody with a serious illness gets vaccinated. They don’t get any symptoms and don’t die. Vaccine has worked?

Somebody with a serious illness gets vaccinated. They don’t get any symptoms and die. Vaccine has worked?

The 5 year average figures in January are quite high and so we might start 2021 with deaths at or below average.

It doesn’t help that the official definition of a “case” is a positive RT-PCR test result. No symptoms allowed, so PCR+. However, the symptoms that were used initially to prompt a test were so generic that they were useless with a specificity of 5%, temperature and cough. Even the loss of taste/sense of smell is not particularly helpful (If cranial nerve I is affected at all then there will be a change in sense of smell and taste due to the interaction between these two senses).

What is interesting to me with the ONS stats is the low level of mortality in the weeks before the pandemic. Usually this would be prime flu season and these figues do seem to back up the hypothesis that the coronavirus has suppressed the flu virus this year.
Out of 3 people I know who have had covid recently, and been quite ill but recovered, two of them had had the flu jab a couple of days before.
I’ve lost myself a bit now but I think where I’m going is mortality isn’t as high as predicted because we now have one dominant virus suppressing other viruses, the governments push for the flu jab recently shows that this effect hasn’t been taken into consideration and could go some way to explaining why the so called experts are so catastophically wrong.
Also taking a leaf out of Sage’s book, in my experience if you get the flu jab you are 66% more likley to get covid so don’t get jabbed.

My own feeling is that it’s impossible to know exactly what the true situation is, data wise, with regard to Covid19 deaths. To me, the only true measure of the situation is the number of TOTAL deaths, and even then only as it relates to the total UK population. And for that we are totally in line (actually better!) than long term figures. See my post above.

I’ve heard the same. They knew all along that they wouldn’t be able to use them. There are barely enough staff in the existing NHS as it is.

Also they didn’t bother to furnish them with patient toilets, because at the time they believed everyone requiring hospital treatment would be ventilated and therefore catheterised. Once they realised that people weren’t actually getting that ill, and would therefore need to get up and go to the toilet, they became unusable even if they did have enough staff.

My hip replacement (postponed many times) due in January is now cancelled. I was promised that I would not have to have a nasal swab (previous nasal surgery and nosebleeds so severe that I was hospitalised, scar tissue etc) I was informed that I could have a throat swab and have made all the arrangements. Today when I phoned to book my pre op medical I asked again about the swab test and they were cagey. Several phone calls later (all along the lines of ‘Not sure’ and ‘Ask on the day’) I was finally rudely informed ‘No nasal swab, no surgery’. Off again. I am seething, having paid to see the consultant, made arrangements, changed my life around etc it is off. I think they wanted me to just acquiesce on the day of the pre-op medical. I asked what would happen if I have a torrential nosebleed and, basically, they would call an ambulance!

The above heading has a glaring error that, corrected, makes it stand as the definitive summary of the PCR test: By moving the dainty word ‘is’ and replacing a question mark with an exclamation, it turns a question into a statement which reflects the undoubted truth:

I’ve just done the analysis on the latest ONS death figures – assuming a worst case secnario of 22,000 per week for the next 4 reporting periods, the death rate this year DROPS to 44 out of the last 70 years. Assuming a generous 15,000 deaths (the latest is 12,303) the position remains at number 50. This is NOT an epidemic/pandemic.

Dear Mr Burghart,

I note that on the liberty2019.org website your name appears as an MP who does not support a full return of our 2019 civil liberties. I was under the impression that any suspension of civil liberties was an emergency measure and would be only temporary.
As your constituent I would like to know if you support a full return of the civil liberties we enjoyed in 2019 or not. I look forward to your reply.

Christmas latest:

Just had full blown row with mother in law on the phone who put the phone down on me. She wants to wear a mask whilst we stay at her house. I said no to that and that I don’t want my child in that situation. My points were

1. If you don’t feel safe we shouldn’t be there
2. Masks are pointless if we are staying the night
3. I don’t want my daughter having to experience that; the normalisation of nanny feeling unsafe and insinuating ee are a disease vector.

Basically the cousins (who are 11 and 13) are telling their grandmother that they must wear a mask to stay safe. They have chosen not to be there for Christmas. And that I must understand she’s over 70 and at risk and she doesn’t feel safe.

How absolutely fucked up is this?!

I have now had a flaming row with my husband and who thinks there’s nothing wrong with his mother feeling safe by wearing a mask. He was cross and rude to me and didn’t understand why I had to ruin what semblance of Christmas we had left and hurt his mother’s feelings.

I see that point a bit, but why should we be managed by the rest of the family like this?!

Here’s another thing – I’ve spoken with Mum this year about it and a) she doesn’t remember anything out of the ordinary during the HK flu outbreak and b) she doesn’t remember me being off school – in other words, business as usual (I should stress my Mum’s memory is still razor sharp!).

  • Currently the rulers hope everyone will go along with the vaccine. The stipulation has been made (in the tiniest print) that the vaccine will not be enforced in order to “build confidence” in the government. This is a loophole that can be produced but it is clear that this is not to be highlighted. The rulers hope that their little “soft coercion” will suffice.
  • Inevitably however, there will be a resistance that will be ruthlessly emotionally blackmailed into taking the virus. “These nutters are putting us all at risk!” etc. An article in the Daily Beast has already made suggestions for marking the non-vaccinated. (You can be as Nazified as you want when “defending public health”.) This will whip up scenes of confrontation the likes of which we’ve never seen. In comparison, the miners’ strike of the 80s will seem like a 60s Love-in. Except of course that that strike was a matter limited to certain areas. The vaccine pogrom will surge everywhere.
  • On top of this, it is clear from this “new variant” that the virus saga can be spread out for as long as you want. And it will be.
  • There will be a continued effort (currently spearheaded by the good old World Socialist Website) to convince everyone that “death is being naturalised” (?!) What this really amounts to is an attempt to de -naturalise death and so drive the population into a constant fear of an event that is universal and infinitely recurring. It may be the biggest ever irony that this deliberately exaggerated fear of death is very much a product of a bourgeois affluent society. And since deaths occur all the time and these PCR tests can tell you whatever you want them to tell you, we have an infinitely prolongable doomsday scenario.
  • There will be no change whatsoever in the policies of the Left groups who will continue to magnify the hysteria of the mainstream media thus calling for greater and greater restrictions while totally turning a blind eye to the devastation caused by the restrictions.
  • The number of people who become suspicious will inevitably grow – so much so that the mainstream media will no longer be able to ignore them and will launch a very high profile attack on “conspiracy nuts” who will be linked with the Right, the white supremacists, the neo-Nazis etc. (the Left of course being the “defenders of humanity” and “reason” etc.) This will also link in to the previously mentioned demonisation of the anti-vaxxers.
  • The above anti-protester movement will result in any number of concerned essays on the “rise of irrationality”, the “evil within the mass mind”, the “destruction of enlightenment values”. The beleaguered down-to-earth reasonable citizens who “put their faith in science” will be set up as an ideal etc.

So instead of waiting for the government, who will never do it, perhaps a commercial organisation could run with his idea and organise for a thousand people who have just had a positive PCR test in the last couple of days to have an independent re-test.

My Dad has been offered an appointment for his first vaccine shot tomorrow (he’s 81). He’s decided to accept, despite being a sceptic who says everyone should be free to go about their business right now.

In the normal course of events he wouldn’t bother, despite his health problems he walks three miles a day and eats a good diet. On one occasion in the past he simply walked out of the hospital when they wanted to keep him in for tests over Christmas. But his reasoning is that at his age he’s not too worried about long term side effects and that he’s sick of his grandchildren being scared they’ll kill him with a hug (I have striven to drive this Hancockian evil out of my children’s minds but haven’t fully succeeded).

Anyway, that’s the attitude of one sceptical pensioner. Resentful, weary acceptance is probably the best way of summing it up.

When 0.7% of asymptomatics (nothing) can be found to spread this, and even when sharing the same bed with someone who is fully symptomatic the chances are 50/50 (sits well with Claire Craig citing PHE study that speculated 50% pre existing immunity), his fear is irrational.

His kids or grandkids will not kill him. If they have symptoms of flu or cold or anything. That’s fine. Play it safe. Otherwise he has succumbed to propaganda. This doesn’t go away even with the vaccine.

If his grandkids are worried in such ways, then they are forcing him into an awful position through misunderstanding and, worse, will full ignorance

302834 ▶▶▶ Liam, replying to BeBopRockSteady, 1, #622 of 1665 🔗

I may not have made myself clear. He’s not worried a hug from his grandchildren will harm him (and wouldn’t let worry stop him if he was), but they still have a lingering reluctance to come close. They’ve visited many times, right through lockdown, but are still a bit hesitant. He thinks it’s nonsense but will just go along for a quiet life.

If I was 81 I would look at the risk reward of an emergency prophylactic and probably take it.

Are US flu death figures more PR than science?

302827 ▶▶ Jonny S., replying to BeBopRockSteady, 1, #640 of 1665 🔗

A click on responses at the top of the atricle brought up this from 2006. My bold at the end.

How useful are flu vaccines? Thompson et al. [1] highlight the correlation between “pneumonia and
influenza” estimated death rates and the percentage of samples positive
for influenza A(H3N2) viruses by week in United States from 1990 to 1998
(cf. Fig. 1, [1]). This correlation is not in itself inconsistent with the
hypothesis that other factors might substantially or even predominantly
contribute to the mortality seasonal burden. Apart from the respiratory
illnesses caused by the increase of environmental pollutants during the
winter season [2], it is worth remembering that “Cold weather alone causes
striking short term increases in mortality, mainly from thrombotic and
respiratory disease”, even without an influenza epidemic [3].
This is in agreement with the generally recognized circumstance that
“isolation of human influenza viruses in the blood has been reported only
rarely”[1] and that the immediate cause of death in almost all cases is
not the viral infection itself but an indirect “complication”, like
secondary bacterial pneumonia.
That there is a serious problem here for the conventional estimates
of the “pneumonia and flu” death rates is widely accepted. For instance,
one member of the Simonsen et al. team, Jonathan Dushoff, published a few
months ago a useful note emphasizing: “Approaching a consensus on the
health and mortality burden of influenza, and on the cause of winter
excess mortality in general, is an important scientific and public policy
goal. For this to happen, further progress is needed in several areas”,
and concluding: “The contribution of influenza to morbidity and mortality
– and, more broadly, cataloging the causes of daily and season excess
deaths and hospitalizations – remain as unresolved questions with
important scientific and public-health implications.” ([4])
More should be done in the way of epidemiological research to assess
the relative weight of all plausible factors and to ascertain how
frequently the flu viruses are actually involved in the fatal outcomes.
Most importantly, it must be pointed out that the so-called
“complications” are also linked to influenza-like illness (ILI), which is
“clinically indistinguishable from influenza” [6]. ILI, defined as a
symptomatic syndrome, is in fact caused by hundreds of different agents,
including RSV (respiratory syncytial virus), picornaviruses,
parainfluenza, hMPV (human metapneumovirus), coronaviruses etc.(see e.g.
Now, an important public health issue arises at this point, since
vaccine is protective only against two of the agents causing symptomatic,
clinical flu. It follows that even if clinical flu were the underlying
cause of seasonal differences in “pneumonia and influenza” death rates,
this would not in itself provide a solid ground for the mass flu
vaccination campaigns.
It is interesting that Doshi’s critics ([1], [9]) seem to evade the
crucial issue of the extent the flu vaccines are succeeding in preventing
clinical flu. The results of two recent meta-analyses are by no means
encouraging ([6], [7]). In [6], which deals with 65+ individuals (one of
the high priority groups for mass vaccination according to the CDC), it is
stated that “the usefulness of vaccines on the community [as opposed to
long-term care facilities] is modest”; in [7] the effectiveness of
vaccines in children younger than 2 (inactivated vaccines) or older than 2
(both inactivated and live attenuated vaccines) was found to be “low”. One
of the main reasons given to explain these disappointing results is that
“vaccines are specifically targeted at influenza viruses and are not
designed to prevent other causes of influenza-like illness”[7].
In an interview the senior author of [6] and [7], Dr. Tom Jefferson,
put the issue in a refreshingly explicit way: “The vaccine doesn’t work
very well at all. […] Vaccines are being used as an ideological weapon.
What you see every year as the flu is caused by 200 or 300 different
agents with a vaccine against two of them. That is simply nonsense.”[8]
So it appears that the picture, not only at a theoretical level but
even as regards “public health efforts”[9], is much more complicated than
that provided by the NIH and CDC representatives.

Could one of you clever statistics people please explain something to me. In Essex the arseholes have dropped us into tier 3. They say our rates are high. 600 odd per 100,000. But how can this be right. We have had 1293 cases in the past 7 days (I know it’s all PCR bullshitbut bare with me) this was out of 2,073,009 tests done. So is that not 0.06% positive tests? The only two figures you know are number of tests and positives. You cannot presume this relationship for the whole of the county and round it up to 100,000. The only people who are supposedly sick are the people going for a test, the rest of us are fine. This is like going into a cancer ward and saying everyone In here has cancer therefore everyone in the hospital in all the other wards have cancer too. Statistically speaking. But really the only number relevant is 1,000 people went into hospital in a week . Out of 2 million people who thought they were ill. And we are shutting down for this.

I do think there has been a bit of a change of mood in the government. Tier three for London is good politics because it keeps the north happy and it puts Khan in a slightly awkward position because he has been calling for more restrictions.

This was a novelty for my wife and me yesterday. We walked into a local Asda and in the entrance is a large tv showing the multitudes eager to spend their money within its walls. I immediately spotted us on the screen as, being unmuzzled our heads were surrounded by yellow boxes and identifiable as non conformist. A security female asked if we were interested in a free mask which we declined. This does seem a tiny bit intrusive to me.

Strange you should mention that. The Morrisons store I walked into this morning had a large screen TV inside the entrance, with live footage of people walking in. Will have to look more carefully nwxt time, because there is no notice of CCTV with facial recognition being in use.

303569 ▶▶ dhid, replying to albert hall, 2, #683 of 1665 🔗

I also visited Asda today, it might have been the same one as Albert and his wife.

I also saw myself and the targeting of my head – masked security male looked like he might challenge me, but apparently thought better of it. I do have a rather cold glare these days

Whilst shopping, I became extremely annoyed by very frequent and loud PA announcements, “reminding” customers to wear face coverings and saying that “colleagues” who were exempt would be wearing a lanyard.

Never mind the customers who are exempt then….

Being what might be described as “extremely pissed off” by these, I sought and found a “manager”.

To the gormless thickly masked individual (with a thick scarf!) who identified himself to me as a “manager”, I “ripped him a new one” (verbally of course).

I told him I found the PA announcements both offensive and intimidating, and said it was, I thought, possibly a breach of disability discrimination regulations, by drawing attention to those who are unmasked. This may make them feel distressed. I forgot to mention the entrance video horror at that point.

I had a job to hear what the dimwit had to say as he mumbled behind his scarf and so I said “For God’s sake take that bloody mask off so I can hear you!”.

I also explained that by not doing so he might be making it difficult for anyone hard of hearing to know what he was saying, particularly as I have very good hearing, and still couldn’t hear him!

He mumbled apologies about rules etc, so I just told him to pass it on to higher level and did mention it might not go down well in some online circles.

Then after self checkout, feeling still very annoyed, I almost (accidentally) left without paying. I then told the slightly alarmed (masked) young lady member of staff about my irritating encounter with the cretin who was allegedly a “manager”. I then asked her to pass on to him that I also considered the facial recognition being used to identify the un-muzzled, and to humiliatingly challenge them publicly, may also be very well considered discrimination.

With that, I removed myself from the store (having paid of course) and gave the security dork a final glare on my way out.

Happy Christmas!

This year has shown me what a bunch of fucking idiots you actually are.

Our grandfather was forced to serve in the army for 6 years – spending some of that time behind enemy lines identifying V1 and V2 rocket launching sites in order to to get the RAF to bomb them. He was nearly killed on several occasions fighting for our freedom and you lot just gave them away in March without a single bullet being fired. I’m glad he is not alive now to see what you’ve done with that freedom you’ve now lost.

All of this was to “stop the NHS being overwhelmed” – they only wanted 3 weeks.

Now, 9 months later, you’ve missed seeing my daughter grow from a baby to start toddling. Instead you’ve sat at home, being brainwashed by the BBC to the extent that I don’t even have to watch the news because you will just repeat the propaganda at me.

Now there’s a new strain, so I don’t expect I’ll see you until at least Christmas 2025 if you are still alive.

Hello. I posted last night, (late), about the hard case of New Zealand and I feel like we really need a better answer to that one. Anyone can throw at us “it worked in New Zealand” and think it’s a debate winner. A set of Economist graphs I posted showed a massive 10x spike in flu infections somewhere in 2016-2019 but I can’t find anything reported on this. Has anyone researched? I can’t find the numbers quoted in the WHO influenza reporting that the article cited. Flu has totally disappeared in NZ by the way, like many places. Is my only reply “yes lock down works in NZ but no where else” ? Or “lock downs only work in South Asia” ? If there was a bad flu season in NZ 2019 that would go some way to explaining low Covid impact in 2020. Does anyone have local knowledge?

I see it as irrelevant to our current debate anyway. To think we can reverse engineer their approach now goes against all pandemic preparation studies pre 2020. Once a virus is endemic, you’ll destroy yourself looking for Zero Covid.

I would suggest NZ are also very strong on double testing, low CTs and clinical diagnostics when deciding on a positive case. If they adopted the UK approach, they’d find Covid. Guaranteed

302909 ▶▶▶ TimeIsNow, replying to BeBopRockSteady, 1, #727 of 1665 🔗

That’s what I was thinking on your second point. Thailand + no mass testing = no pseudo epidemic. NZ + accurate clinical testing of the sick = no pseudo epidemic. UK – deranged mass testing with PCR = nothing happening.

302928 ▶▶▶▶ BeBopRockSteady, replying to TimeIsNow, 1, #728 of 1665 🔗

302917 ▶▶ Ovis, replying to TimeIsNow, 2, #729 of 1665 🔗

A NZ approach was systematically saboutaged by those who now support it. It depends on hard borders.

We do remember when the ‘real danger’ was a rise in xenophobia; and we do remember who pushed that line.

As it happens, I think Covid would be endemic by now whatever we had done. But it is possible there was a chance to delay onset later into the Spring, and that might have saved a few lives. That could have been done with rapid and robust travel bans. But we weren’t allowed, cos the WHO said that would be racist.

302936 ▶▶▶ BeBopRockSteady, replying to Ovis, 1, #730 of 1665 🔗

I remember, earlier in this scamdemic, making the point to my lockdown supporting family, that if this was about health, the Irish government would have shut the NI border due to the higher reported level of deaths/cases there relative to the Republic.

That the Irish Government did not do so shows it is not about health.

302923 ▶▶ Bugle, replying to TimeIsNow, 2, #732 of 1665 🔗

Not local knowledge but a not insignificant part of the NZ narrative is that American super-rich have been buying homes there possibly since Trump was elected in 2016. I remember reading about it some time ago, and a quick duckduckgo search appears to confirm the trend. The attraction is probably geographical distance from disasters (!) which may overtake the rest of the world and a near to pristine environment.

It would seem impossible that NZ’s Covid policies have not been influenced by these powerful and fabulously wealthy people: extreme isolationism and loopholes for those who can afford them.

Does that mean NZ has fewer ‘cases’?

We all know about the PCR- what it actually means and how it can mislead.

Does it mean that New Zealand has had no excess mortality in 2020?

Neither has Germany – which has 83 million people and is not isolated.

So what does “It’s worked in New Zealand” actually mean?

302963 ▶▶▶ TimeIsNow, replying to calchas, #735 of 1665 🔗

My friend there says everything in Christchurch is open, little masking, large public gatherings. NZ are reporting literally zero cases apart from at the borders. He believes that this is evidence for the policies. Particularly closed borders. Positive tests peaked at 80 per day with 5M residents. Back of a fag packet – 1,120 for UK. I guess if he’s watching UK news at the moment anything other than grinding societal breakdown and panic looks like success.

303004 ▶▶▶ BeBopRockSteady, replying to calchas, #736 of 1665 🔗

Excellent point. Also, given that 65% of Covid deaths are over 80 and 95% over 65, with an average of 2.1 co morbidities, many will have likely died anyway, as sad as that is. So deaths overall bang on trend.

Travellers have hit out the government’s test to release scheme on its first day, after it became clear a number of the 11 approved test providers were unable to meet demand.

The list was released just hours before the scheme went live today, with Samedaydoctor posting on its website shortly afterwards “Unfortunately we have been so overwhelmed with requests for Test and Release that we cannot answer any more emails nor take any more bookings.” It has since been removed from the list.

Axiom, the first on the list, this morning had a note on its website reading: “Test to release is not yet available but will be available soon, we will update in the next few hours. Please email us at contact@axiomlab.co.uk to register your interest.”

Chronomics’ link for booking was also not yet live, but you can register an interest.

New fear post from the Daily Express today. Perfect example of the genre.

– No name on the byline.

302985 ▶▶ kenadams, replying to crimsonpirate, 6, #774 of 1665 🔗

Probably a bit. We musn’t forget that it is a disease that kills more old people than previous colds/flus. However, as long as everyone who actually feels ill doesn’t attend, the likelihood of any virus transmission is incredibly low. And, even if the virus was transmitted it is highly unlikely anyone would die or get seriously ill from it, even most old people.

News flash for the world – people die of respiratory viruses in winter, mostly in Jan/Feb. It will be the same this year. It might even be slightly higher than normal because of covid, but unlikely to be as bad as aussie flu of 2018 because covid has already done it’s first and only big wave. It does not mean we lock everyone up and ban all normal human social interaction and destroy our children’s futures.

This is from CDC website:

‘Masks are primarily intended to reduce the emission of virus-laden droplets (“source control”), which is especially relevant for asymptomatic or presymptomatic infected wearers who feel well and may be unaware of their infectiousness to others, and who are estimated to account for more than 50% of transmissions.’

50% of transmissions? Surely, this has been debunked?


302932 ▶▶ mhcp, replying to JanMasarykMunich, 1, #777 of 1665 🔗

It’s not true either. There were two mask papers – one a meta-analysis and the other measurement of symptomatic people with corona, influenza and rhino viruses. It was a very small sample and appeared to show that masks reduced coronaviruses somewhat. Nothing about asymptomatic or presymptomatic. The meta analysis made that assertion.

I believe the meta analysis is facing retraction.

Masks damage the brain
The re-breathing of our exhaled air will without a doubt create oxygen deficiency and a flooding of carbon dioxide.
We know that the human brain is very sensitive to oxygen deprivation.
There are nerve cells for example in the hippocampus, that can’t be longer than 3 minutes without oxygen. They cannot survive.
While you’re thinking that you have got used to wearing your mask and re-breathing your own exhaled air, the degenerative processes in your brain are getting amplified as your oxygen deprivation continues.
Especially in children
The child needs the brain to learn, and the brain needs oxygen to function.
The child’s brain, or the youth’s brain, is thirsting for oxygen. Their brain is also incredibly active, as it has so much to learn.
To deprive a child’s or an adolescent’s brain of oxygen, or to restrict it in any way, is not only dangerous to their health, it is absolutely criminal.
Irreversible damage
Oxygen deficiency inhibits the development of the brain, and the damage that has taken place as a result CANNOT be reversed.

Less of the Covid mutant scare stories – No 10 should give us the exit plan (telegraph.co.uk)

Of particular interest:

“A chart in yesterday’s Daily Telegraph graphically illustrated the key point that vaccinating just a small percentage of the population can reduce Covid deaths to such an extent that a return to normality can get underway much earlier than we might expect.
Together the over-80s and the over-70s make up 84 per cent of Covid deaths but only 13 per cent of the population. Get the lion’s share of these age groups double-dosed with jabs and it is effectively game over for Covid as a major killer. The cost benefit analysis about the risk to life as compared to the economic and other harms inherent in lockdowns will be drastically changed the moment this is done.”

‘The other big story yesterday was that London will be placed in Tier 3 at one minute after midnight on Wednesday morning’

Don’t you just love it that the government have their under cover agents getting a handle on Coroni’s habits and routines. It will keep us all safe after all:

The virus is sensitive to posture hence sit down, stand up, sit down again.

It’s got a thing about space which seems to be that within two meters is its favourite attack zone. Wind speed, breezes and draughts make no difference. Also, the rule of six…it’s always the seventh person who is the threat. Whatever you do don’t be number seven, you’ll be tarred forever with the mark of Satan.

It has a phobia about masks (preferably ill fitting, dirty and worn incorrectly) so that it will find mask less, human, normal faces most attractive.

It has limitations in water whereby when swimming pools are open (not many now) swimmers must keep to their sectioned off lane and only bathe for short periods. The changing rooms are a death zone therefore swimmers have to come with their cossies already on.

The virus is well genned up on county boundaries, country borders and population densities but respects the Tier system to the letter even when borders can separate a house from its garden.

Time management…Madcock has calculated that the ‘virus’ is most active at certain times of the day hence his directives about pub opening and closing times. He is also confident that launching his big guns at precise days and times (one minute after midnight on Wednesday morning) will be most effective in his efforts to save us all from the grim and awful prospect of catching……………the flu!

My advice for all Londoners is this: Set your clocks for the appointed time on Wednesday…after this, like much of Northern England, your world will never be the same again.

As far as I can tell, even the most died in the wool middle class tosspot is still hoping to have a normal life again post-vaccination. When they realise they won’t, that might be when it kicks off.

But I am prepared to be disappointed.

Another story to add further weight to the theory that the people who are still scared of covid are middle class office workers, whereas normal people who work in the real world and meet people all the time have seen past the bull.

Yesterday I went to buy a motor racing car (I’ve decided to treat myself to try and get through all of this crap, and it’s actually not as expensive as I’d feared!). I went to a specialist garage, spoke to four different people, all inside. Not one mask, or even the hint that they were thinking about masks or wondering why I wasn’t wearing one either.

i think people align their beliefs with their interests. people want to think of themselves as good. people for who lockdown is a benefit then justify it with the virus. people that need to work claim its bollocks.

I used to work in the oil industry. they all thought climate change was nonsense. Then I worked in environmental sciences – they were firm catastrophic global warmists. similar sorts of people whose outlook changed depending on what they were doing

I watched a commons select committee hearing chaired by Crispin Blunt and a home office bloke where 4 or 5 Scottish health ministers and MP’s were pleading the UK government to allow Scottish councils to open safe rooms for injecting opiate users. A place where they could inject safely with help on hand if they were to overdose.

This would have saved a lot of these lost lives.

The UK government would not allow the Scottish government to open up these safe rooms because they said that the Police could not turn a blind eye to users travelling to these safe rooms who might be carrying prohibited drugs on their person. They could not just let them go without arresting them.

So that’s 600 lives at least that could have been saved, perhaps another 600 could have been saved with proper drug and alcohol user support services in place.

That is probably more lives saved than covid managed to take in the under 65 category.

Millions of people are lining up to get Pfizer’s COVID-19 shot without being told the FDA sees a risk they will get a more severe case of COVID-19 after the initial protection fades. Testing hasn’t lasted long enough to find out. If the public isn’t warned about *all* risks now, they may not trust vaccines even if full testing demonstrates them to be safe.
The UK, US and Canadian governments provide documents for patients and health care workers explaining the vaccine. Yet as of Dec. 12th, 2020: none of those mention this important issue acknowledged by the US government only in sources most people will never read.
The non-partisan US government’s Congressional Research Service explained : “experts are concerned about the potential for vaccine enhanced disease, in which vaccination could worsen the health effects of COVID-19 infections […]. Animal studies of other coronavirus vaccines have found some potential for vaccine enhanced disease”
A medical journal says after the dengue vaccine’s initial effect faded “vaccinated children in the 2–5 year age group, were found to be nearly 8 times likely to be hospitalized for severe dengue, compared to children in the placebo group”.
The FDA’s initial review of the Pfizer and BiNTech vaccine says its makers “identified vaccine-associated enhanced disease including vaccine-associated enhanced respiratory disease as an important potential risk.” and the FDA adds “risk of vaccine-enhanced disease over time, potentially associated with waning immunity, remains unknown and needs to be evaluated further in ongoing clinical trials and in observational studies”. Unfortunately the short testing period wasn’t long enough to assess the risk.
Media in countries hit hard by COVID-19 haven’t called attention to the issue to date. In contrast a Japanese paper quoted the director of the Japanese Society of Clinical Virology: “Concerns over ADE still remain. I am an elderly person myself, but if I were asked, I would say I don’t want to get a shot.” Elsewhere he explained : “In the past, a dengue vaccine proved effective in tests and was widely used, but then it worsened symptoms for people who were still getting infected.”. A leading professor of Immunology testified to Japan’s House of Representatives: “There’s no doubt that their effectiveness is quite high, but their safety is not guaranteed at all”.
Hopefully continued testing will discover COVID-19 vaccines are safe over the long run, but they don’t understand COVID-19 well enough to predict that. More info at BuildVaccineTrust.com

Covid really is one of a kind disease.

My daughter developed chicken pox on Thursday and the incubation period before she can return to creche is 10 days or until the blisters crust over so she is no longer contagious. Obviously keep her away from other kids and pregnant women in the mean time but we aren’t under house arrest with her and she can see adult family members.
Also, we have not a clue how she got it, the creche have had no pox cases since they re-opened in July, so she picked it up somehow.

My otherwise healthy Great Grandmother passed away from pneumonia in 2005 aged 103 whilst still living in her farm house. Prior to this it was common sense not to see her if you were unwell, but she contracted it regardless and sadly passed away from it. No one was to blame for killing her and bringing that disease to her.

No doubt Coronavirus can be lethal but the hype around it is pure insanity. Are we always going to be treated like lepers?

How many people know that there is a vaccination against chicken pox. Its been around for years and is fully tested to the point that in some countries (Germany to name one I believe) that it is routinely given as part of the childhood vaccination programme.

Ask your GP or any other NHS ‘hero’ and they will pretend it doesnt exist. You have to get it privately.

Chicken pox can be very nasty, especially for adults, and have serious side effects, particularly for boys.

So why have we never had a media frenzy demanding compulsory vaccination, ‘health passports’ etc for this rather than the attempt to keep it if not secret but certainly unavailable on the NHS.

Are you sure you mean chicken pox? Mumps in adult males can cause sterility.
Chicken pox does not mix well with pregnant women or neonates. If a person has had chicken pox then they can develop shingles (identified by a chicken pox type rash on one (vertical) half of the body). If children have chicken pox when they are younger or only have a mild form then they can develop shingles (I’ve seen 9/10 year olds with shingles). There is a shingles vaccine for the over 70’s. The chicken pox vaccine is available

It is recommended for certain individuals, such as:

  • non-immune healthcare workers
  • people who come into close contact with someone who has a weakened immune system

I came to the conclusion that this government was evil back in August. When I first said this people thought I was extreme. I also told my vicar that the Church of England was finished; it would however re-emerge in 2090, seventy years away. Like the exile of the Jews. Like the gap between the Russian Revolution and 1989.
I do so wish I did not need to be so pessimistic and some days I think that this will all blow over.
To misquote Lord Grey of Falloden: ‘The song is being silenced throughout the Church; we shall not hear it again in our lifetime’.

I don’t think they have ‘Christianity’ in their sights – it’s just another piece of collateral damage.

I think they will cancel Christmas – but it’s possible this will do more harm to their cause than they think. If they had announced a ban on Christmas back in, say, October, most people would have grumbled and accepted it. But they specifically allowed it. If they now go back on that, people will be more annoyed than if they had never ‘allowed’ it in the first place. It’s like telling a kid you’re going to take him to Disneyland then changing your mind.

We’ve just got back from a 5 hour round trip to Leicester and back to visit mother in law in a care home, now in tier 3. We were allotted a space near the back stairs enough to put 2 chairs and a small table sectioned off with glass and mother was brought in a wheelchair and sat the other side of the glass. There was no heating and was exceptionally difficult to hear her made even worse because she said she didn’t have her hearing aid in! She was pleased to see us, I hadn’t seen her since February, she said she was OK at her age, nearly 98, she doesn’t expect much excitement! I felt so very sorry for her, she wont be able to spend Christmas with her daughter and her family this year as they’ve changed their car and there is not room for her and the wheelchair! The home has just discovered she has a broken hip, she fell out of bed some months ago and they’ve only just noticed one leg is now shorter than the other so spends a lot of time in a wheelchair. She said it doesn’t give her any pain but she said she doesn’t want an operation because she doubts she would come out of hospital alive! All in all a thoroughly depressing visit!

  4. Separation of immediate families, particulary the separation of children from parents

It is now almost a week since the vaccination programme started with much ballyhoo and the media displaying numerous photos of the celebrities fighting to be amongst the first to be jabbed .Since then I have seen no indication that any of them have been vaccinated . However that maybe because I refuse to watch or listen to the BBC news and most papers are paywalled and unreadable without a subscription (fair enough – if you want a service or product you should pay for it).
Does anyone know if the pro-lockdown, pro- jab fanatics in the entertainment or media world have actually walked the walk, or was it just talk?

303220 ▶▶ EssieSW, replying to mikewaite, 9, #981 of 1665 🔗

Not that I am aware of. If anything, it seems like this week the vaccine has not been mentioned much, what with London going into tier 3 yesterday taking most of the headlines and discussion and today all the talk of the Christmas ‘rules’ being reviewed.

I may just be being overly suspicious, but are ‘they’ trying to shift the focus off of vaccines for a reason? Such as the roll out not going well, or perhaps more adverse reactions being reported?

303423 ▶▶▶ Cranmer, replying to EssieSW, 4, #982 of 1665 🔗

My guess is they know the take-up for the vaccine is going to be poor because of widespread suspicion of its inefficacy or actual harmfulness – NHS staff have apparently already been put further down the list for it. I suspect the plan now is to increase fear of the ‘new variant’ which will require us to be in lockdown longer, and which will need another vaccine; or, the vaccine was always just ‘hopium’ to get lockdown compliance for longer (in order to facilitate the Great Reset or similar) and was never intended to work.

3 ways to measure covid deaths – all with their own problems. each massively overestimates what are essentially deaths of old age and some brining forward of deaths by a few months

I would measure life years lost and divide by the average time anyone has got left

303215 ▶▶ kenadams, replying to steve_w, 4, #985 of 1665 🔗

There is a way of doing this, called Quality Adjusted Life Years (QALY). It was how, before Covid, we used to allocate health spending in the most fair way possible to provide the highest benefit possible to the most number of people.

Some people have conducted QALY assessments of lockdowns vs covid. Even one when they assumed that the ICL prediction of 500,000 deaths was correct and that lockdowns stopped 450,000 of them, they still had the lockdowns costing more QALYs than they saved! Some of the more accurate assessments came up with something like 125x worse for QALY for lockdowns versus doing nothing.

Sorry, just going by memory. It definitely was calculated, though. it makes sense because 95% of people who ‘die of covid’ are within a few months of dying of something else anyway. Whereas cancer etc that is going up due to lockdowns often affects young people who are otherwise healthy.

I think that was the Bristol paper I read back in March. It was convincing then – more so now we know the deaths prediction was 10x over (as usual for Ferguson) and the QALYs lost each death is negligible

Was enjoying myself watching the masked morons repeatedly shouting to each other in order to be heard when i overheard a Doctor ( she had a high vis coat on emblazoned DOCTOR on back) hard selling the vaccine to an elderly woman in wheelchair. Basically she was in for some other appointment but after a few minutes of the hard sell she agreed to vaccine. Within a shot another Doc was out with clipboard getting details. This woman was on her own, nearly 91. If these Docs ever need a job in the future they’ll make a fortune selling double glazing or insurance.

Last night, President Cyril Ramaphosa announced some measures to curb the spread of the Coronavirus pandemic, as South Africa has officially entered the second wave of infections. South Africa will remain on alert Level One, according to the risk adjusted framework, however, with stricter enforcement on the restrictions. These restrictions include: -The reinstatement of the curfew from 23h00 and 04h00 daily -Non-essential businesses, restaurants and bars must close at 22h00 to allow time for staff and patrons to travel back to their overnight accommodation to meet the 23h00 curfew -The number of attendees at gatherings has been lowered to 100 for indoor events and 250 for outdoor events. All venues must not exceed 50% of their maximum capacity -A differentiated approach has been adopted with regards to the regulation of beaches and national parks. For all areas with high infections which include the entire Eastern Cape and The Garden Route, beaches will be closed from 16 December 2020 until 3 January 2021 -KwaZulu-Natal beaches will be closed on traditionally busy days which include 16,25,26 & 31 December 2020 as well as 1,2 & 3 January 2021. Beaches in the Northern Cape and the Western Cape will remain open throughout the festive season. Festivals, live music events and concerts at beaches are prohibited – National and Provincial Parks, where all safety measures are in place, may remain open – The sale of alcohol from retail outlets will only be permitted between 10h00 and 18h00 from Monday to Thursday. Wineries and wine estates may open for wine tasting and purchases during the normal licensed hours for off-site consumption, due to their economic and tourism impact.

Is there anything to the theory that they’re taking your DNA with these covid tests? I searched online but all I could find were articles “debunking” it.. which makes me think there is something to it.

303236 ▶▶ leggy, replying to John Galt, 3, #1038 of 1665 🔗

Well they put through an SI which allows them to create a DNA and fingerprint database under the auspices of national security. Not quite sure what that has to do with Covid.

303238 ▶▶ calchas, replying to John Galt, 2, #1039 of 1665 🔗

IIf the samples are taken and stored, they yes I expect they have that sample of your DNA.

I am going to have to look it up again, but I remember reading somewhere that if you were born in the UK after 1968, then you have a blood sample stored anyway – taken after birth.

Must check!

303276 ▶▶▶ John Galt, replying to calchas, 1, #1040 of 1665 🔗

It states:

All samples are then stored at 4 celcius from individuals to enable retrieval, if retest is needed.


So you’re right, they seem to store them, though it’s tough to say for how long.

“Millions of newborn babies have had their DNA stored by hospitals without the proper consent of their parents, it has been revealed.”

story from 2010

303268 ▶▶ John Galt, replying to John Galt, #1042 of 1665 🔗

The specific legislation that all these “debunking” articles seem to refer to, is a standalone legislation which seems to only refer to keeping them in regards to counter-terrorism:


Yet if you read the Coronavirus Act 2020 legislation itself, which also has its own section for retention of fingerprints and DNA, does it not seem like there’s more scope to retain fingerprints and DNA profiles?


It also says this:

(2)The Secretary of State may make regulations extending, for up to six months, the period for which the fingerprints and DNA profiles may be retained.

(3)The Secretary of State may exercise the power under subsection (2) only if the Secretary of State considers that—

(a)coronavirus is having, or is likely to have, an adverse effect on the capacity of persons responsible for making national security determinations to consider whether to make, or renew, national security determinations, and

(b)it is in the interests of national security to retain the fingerprints or DNA profiles.

So if they determine that it’s in the interests of national security to keep your DNA (and aren’t they classing corona as being in the interests of national security?), then they can? That’s how I read it anyway.

303254 Mutineer, replying to Mutineer, 20, #1051 of 1665 🔗

I’ve needed a hip replacement for some time and arranged to have it privately. It was cancelled as the glorious NHS commandeered private facilities, even though not using them. Obviously, I wanted to get it done before vaccinations are enforced. I finally got a date – 19th Jan- and told the consultant I wouldn’t have a nose swab as I’ve had previous nasal surgery and lots of scar tissue. He said a throat swab would be ok. I felt so uneasy I rang both the hospital and his secretary and nobody seemed to think it was a problem. Today I had to make an appointment for pre-op consultation and mentioned it again. Nobody knew. I finally rang and said I needed absolute confirmation that a nose swab wasn’t mandatory. I was phoned by an officious woman who said, basically, ‘No nose swab, no surgery’. Now I doubt it will ever get done. I suppose they felt that, if they got me to the pre-op stage it would be too late to argue and I would just acquiesce. I asked if they would cover treatment for any nasal damage but it would be at ‘my own risk’. Now it’s going to be a formal complaint. I’ve made an appointment with a different hospital but it will probably be the same everywhere. Hysteria over flu. Just flu.

303282 ▶▶ John Galt, replying to Mutineer, 5, #1052 of 1665 🔗

303332 ▶▶ Stringfellow Hawke, replying to Mutineer, 4, #1055 of 1665 🔗

Sorry to hear that. However, you are absolutely right to make a formal complaint. Two points:
1) There was a video posted some time ago re: some legalese. Under the Nuremberg Code, (6) forced medical interventions are illegal . They can ask permission to undertake [temperature checks, swabs] but are not supposed to disadvantage you receiving equal treatment [service, entry to premises, or whatever] if you politely decline.
2) If the hospital claims a PCR test will ‘keep everyone safe’ I would suggest you are well within your rights to request absolute proof – suspect they are on seriously dodgy legal ground, seeing as AG’s FOIA (and many other sources, inc. Prof Pollock interviewed on the BBC, & various other Gov documentation) has specifically said PCR alone is not proof of an infectious individual.

I seriously doubt the PCR test is able to differentiate new variant strains, its basically testing for the presence of mRNA material, its not sequencing the entire SARS-COV2 Genome, I read its about 30,000 nucloetides.

My understanding is its not able to differentiate between any Coronovirus (Common Cold etc), and maybe not any virus at all, just mere presence, but also dependent on Ct.

Sounds like an oven ready excuse to take Christmas away if the evil twins and SAGE scare Boris shitless again.

It also means they were only swabbed for Covid and not for flu unless they were severely ill with a respiratory disease, if the previous form was followed.

Also many saying they can’t take another year of this and won’t put up with it past next spring or summer at the latest. Quite a change in tone from even just a few months ago.

The head honchos from these sectors should take a leaf out of the book of the gym owners & hairdressers up north who have said “we’re not taking this any longer.” They should defy the government and stay open. Plus ditch the restrictions and if they get a visit from the police, kick off, refuse to pay the fines and demand that it goes to court. Play them at their own game.

If they don’t then we’re are well and truly screwed.

303343 matt, replying to matt, 3, #1136 of 1665 🔗

I’ve just heard something that has left me scratching my head. I genuinely can’t think of an explanation from any angle. I thought I’d se what theories those here might have on it.

For background, my sister is an obstetric anaesthetist working in a large NHS hospital (currently a tier 3 area, for what it’s worth – where isn’t?) I’ve mostly avoided talking to her since March, because I know her opinions and her husband’s are – let’s say – different from mine on this subject. This is also one of the reasons I’m not looking forward to a family Christmas overmuch.

In a conversation with my mother just now (her way of thinking is much closer to mine, by the way), she mentioned that one of the reasons my sister thinks the way she does about this whole thing is that she has seen a significant increase in premature births, where the mother has the virus and it has caused a problem with the placenta.

Before I get jumped on and downvoted, just to point out that this doesn’t change my view on lockdown, for all that I think the problems associated with premature birth have the potential to be far more tragic than the death of an octogenarian a few months earlier than it might otherwise have happened. It just extends somewhat the group who should take more seriously their own responsibility for managing their risk (about which more in a minute). In other words, this isn’t me appearing here to drop in a scare story and claim you’re all baby killers as well as granny killers – there are a lot of new faces here, but hopefully those who remember me from before I took a break from the site for a couple of months will remember that this isn’t my reason for being here.

What has me scratching my head is this: if this is true, then why isn’t it being mentioned? I have no reason to believe it isn’t true, because although I certainly wouldn’t put it past my sister to use something like this to make a point, I can’t see my mother doing the same thing. She’s also medical, by the way, so well placed to sort truth from exaggeration. I should say, though, that I haven’t yet found any stats on the subject, so have no context for how common it might actually be (though, you could say exactly the same for ‘long Covid’).

There’s a clear agenda at the moment to extend the fear to justify the continued ‘measures’. Maybe it’s just me, but I would think that this would be a far better way of whipping up fear than religiously reporting on the tiny handful of deaths below the age of 60, banging on about “long covid” or presenting big, scary, made-up numbers. If this is known, then why hasn’t the BBC seized on it gleefully and why hasn’t Hancock waved it triumphantly in a press briefing?

Also, if it is known, why hasn’t there been firmer advice to pregnant women and their partners to be extra cautious? As I recall, they were included in the category that needed to take special care right at the beginning, but it was specifically said at the time that this was just a precaution and there was no specific reason to think that they were at risk. I haven’t seen any update to that advice. At face value, it looks like a particular effort is being made not to protect those at risk.

If it isn’t known, but it is true, how could it possibly not be recognised?

So, one explanation is that it’s a big fat lie, made up by my sister to make a point at me second hand, but again, I would have trusted my mother to debunk it as the middle man. Beyond that, I’m stumped. What possible reason could there be not to publicise it? Even if the numbers are tiny, when has that ever stopped the BBC from reporting things before?

303359 ▶▶ Noumenon, replying to matt, 13, #1137 of 1665 🔗

Maybe because the attribution to covid is incorrect and it’s actually stress induced or something else? I’m no medic so this is just a shot in the dark.

303373 ▶▶ Tyneside Tigress, replying to matt, 3, #1139 of 1665 🔗

Matt. What exactly are we defining here as ‘premature’? Bearing in mind most services have been cut to the bone, are we confident in staging – are these very premature babies or just that the dates are out by a few weeks on normal babies? Also, since all overnight stays for maternity purposes have required pre-admission testing since September, is this just a matter of more testing equals more positive mothers?

303385 ▶▶▶ DocRC, replying to Tyneside Tigress, 3, #1140 of 1665 🔗

Premature is defined as before 37 weeks gestation.

303455 ▶▶▶▶▶▶ Cheezilla, replying to matt, #1146 of 1665 🔗

Matt, I found this:

Conclusion The researchers conclude that unlike earlier studies, there is no evidence of any specific pathology in placentas derived from women who are infected with SARS-CoV-2 in late pregnancy. Thus, they say, Pregnancy complicated with COVID-19 during the 3rd trimester does not have a demonstrable effect on placental structure and pathology. We do not rule out a more significant impact if the infection occurred earlier in pregnancy.” They also suggest that populations from other localities may show differing placental responses compared to those in the current study, as a result of differences in the patient population.

All fine thanks, Matt. I’ve been a bit quiet on here too – I had some refereeing to do for a journal and some writing of my own.

Matt, I think it will be difficult to get at the numbers for this year as the birth registration system was disrupted by you know what in March-June. And anyway, the stats for 2019 were only released on 16th November 2020. https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/birthsdeathsandmarriages/livebirths/bulletins/birthcharacteristicsinenglandandwales/2019

There are however 60,000 premature births per annum in England and Wales. I’m not sure that one individual’s anecdotal experience in one NHS hospital would tell us very much!

Mike Yeadon was flagging up anxiety about the vaccine and its possible effect on placental cells. I think they are advising against pregnant women having the vaccine at present? It may be an antibody to the virus problem which the vaccine may also generate.

303605 ▶▶▶ watashi, replying to Cedric the dragon, #1153 of 1665 🔗

could also be a result of pregnant mother not getting enough oxygen due to mask wearing?

303393 ▶▶ watashi, replying to matt, 2, #1154 of 1665 🔗

I would say the fact that she attributes it to covid is not true. Couldn’t it just as likely be caused by whatever vaccines are pushed on pregnant women? whooping cough? flu jab?
I don’t suppose they would want to publicise anything negative about vaccines

303426 ▶▶ Dodderydude, replying to matt, #1155 of 1665 🔗

It’s worth pointing out to your sister multiple articles pointing out a 50% increase in stillbirths worldwide, generally attributed by experts to the reluctance or inability of pregnant women to seek ante-natal advice during the pandemic.


I wonder what the ‘problem with the placenta’ assumed by your sister to have caused premature births is and whether it is actually something quite common that might normally be picked up at ante-natal consultations and treated appropriately. As others have said, it is unlikely that this would not have received massive media coverage if it was truly a consequence of Covid19 infection. Also, I doubt that mask wearing helps developing foetuses; I have seen several heavily pregnant women in the shops wearing masks.

Hi Matt, good to see you back here. I think your sister might be right, but might also be sick..

We lost our first child at full term. This was during massive shutdowns of maternity units and the one nearest to us was closed. Long story short, because of the shortage of midwives and not being able to get a face to face, we believe that my wife’s waters broke a week before birth. By the time she finally went into labour, it appears infection had set in. Is it possible that minor complications, that would normally be picked up and dealt with, are being missed, resulting in some premature births?

On the sickness.. The real virus is the one that’s possessed the bodies of ordinary folk and has made them so fanatical, that it borders evil. One is a friend of my wife’s, a real sweetheart normally. We’ve discovered that she is behind a lot of the local scare stories and whipping up fear. It’s actually quite frightening how obsessed she’s become. As if 2020 wasn’t bad enough, I think we’re looking at some kind of zombie plague and I’m only half kidding.

matt – I think the key is in your statement :

“She’s also medical, by the way, so well placed to sort truth from exaggeration.”

This just isn’t the case. Medical staff are just as susceptible to mythology as the general population, and just as likely to suffer from confirmation bias in interpreting their own perceptions, which are amazingly subject to distortion.

I’ve come across medical staff who are convinced that wearing masks is an improvement on a rabbit’s foot.

That’s why ‘science’ – the methodology of interpreting hard data, rather than falling into the trap of thinking that those who are close up to a particular situation have an ‘objective’ view.

Talk to almost anyone working on a Covid ward, and they will be convinced that we are in the middle of an unprecedented epidemic.

Which we aren’t – as confirmed by hard data.

AS to premature births – even if there is a higher rate, the possible causes in this strange time are innumerable.

Just think ‘Derren Brown’ if you want to get a grip on the effects of misperception.

I got wind of it from a staff briefing e-mail today. That briefing also contained the following gems of wisdom “ What hasn’t helped is that a significant proportion of those testing positive aren’t displaying any of the three main COVID-19 symptoms, particularly in the first few days. This has meant they have continued to come to work whilst infectious and has resulted in the cases within staff teams…..”

The notion that these people might not actually have the virus but be false positives isn’t considered. The brief went on to criticise people for not following rules (as usual it’s all our own fault) and gave this advice “ If you are feeling unwell, like you have a cold or sore throat and/or nausea and vomiting do please stay at home and get a test.”

The Since when were sore throat and / or nausea and vomiting likely symptoms of Covid ????

I am writing this to warn everybody of the downside to wearing face masks. I work for the nhs and are forced to wear face masks and a visor for 12 hours a day, recently I have been getting chest pains and was worried it could be signs of an impending heart attack. Both parents died of heart problems so you can imagine I was pretty worried when these chest pains began. I also have asthma which should exempt me but the nhs as it’s own laws compared to every where else. Yesterday I visited my doctor who discovered I now have high blood pressure due to wearing face masks. I told her that that morning I had cycled 18 miles as I do every day without any chest problems but as soon as I put a face mask on in the doctors I could feel my chest tightening up. The doctor deduced because cold can induce asthma attacks and it didn’t that the anxiety caused by face masks was causing my high blood pressure. We now have the Danish study showing that face masks makes very little difference to catching covid and I believe my problem is probably the tip of the iceberg. When government forces us to wear face masks or put the country into lockdown should it not tell us the downside to these policies especially when last year the WHO didn’t recommend lockdown. And where are the politicians who should protect us from this destructive policies ?

Dear Derek
I had a heart attack less than a week before lockdown. I was lucky.
I’m a fit 61 year-old, cycling, hill-walking, you get the picture, so it was a bit of a surprise, although I had been monitoring my raised blood pressure.
I had been having symptoms of angina, but didn’t recognise them as such.
The pain I got was a slight tightening of the chest, but with a strange prickly sensation.
As I’d had a bad cold, with chesty cough, and it was still cold up here in Edinburgh,
I put it down to a lingering after-effect of the chest infection when I was breathing hard out on the bike, or up in the hills. One day on the way to work, this peculiar feeling was really bad, so I resolved to speak to the GP the next day. I didn’t get a chance, the HA hit me in the shower the next morning, it felt like my throat and lungs were being scrubbed out with a brush.
I had a 70% blockage of the LAD coronary artery (a.k.a. the widow-maker).
Angiogram, stent and out in two days. I dodged a bullet.
If you’re experiencing anything like that, get a diagnosis, and certainly don’t aggravate things with a face mask.
Best of Luck

You have my absolute empathy.

I have to attend hospital frequently, so have observed what is being enforced – at close quarters. I’ve talked to nursing staff, and know that many experience serious ill-effects from wearing masks all day, even tho’ a lot have been forced into thinking it is necessary.

The most ridiculous distortion of health protocols is that of patients being dragooned into suffocating themselves – even with ailments like COPD and heart problems involving a shortness of breath. F.ing perverse! This for a measure that has no observable benefit. That contravenes the Nuremburg protocols – as does enforced PCR testing.

Come back Mengele – all is forgiven!

I had to go to A&E last week, and could see that one of the nurses monitoring me was quite distressed. Turned out that she, too, was asthmatic and desperate to take her mask off. Whether that impulse was partly psychological is beside the point – it was an induced discomfort that has no point. We reached a working agreement – I told her to dispense with the mask when around me, and she accepted that I wasn’t going to have a swab up my nose for a pointless PCR test (a process that I find incredibly uncomfortable because of sensitivity).

The actions of management in these areas are at best ignorant, running through negligent to wilfully contrary to agreed conventions on medical practise.

New rules for 2021 – an occasional series of what to expect in 2021 to further control the population virus / any other Government fear inducing mechanism:

Home inspections will start June 2021 – all private households will be inspected by “Mates and Co” to ensure that hygiene measures are up to standard. Dirty adults will be pressure-sprayed with disinfectant. Any elderly relatives on the premises will be removed to a secure location. Children will be sanitised using child-friendly chemicals by child-friendly operatives. All items of clothing will be quarantined. Sub-standard furniture and other household items will be burned. All alcohol will be removed. Pets will be vaccinated against everything. Heating systems will be disconnected. All windows and doors will be nailed open.  All devices will be scanned for misinformation and electronically cleaned. History books will be removed. Non-compliant households will be allocated to an appropriate re-education centre. Fees will be borne by each household – these are expected to be around 10% of the value of everything owned.

303493 ▶▶▶ Cranmer, replying to A. Contrarian, 19, #1274 of 1665 🔗

Bad news is usually a Thursday or Friday, so I think you’re right. Here’s a thought as to why they might do it. If they cancel Christmas at short notice, they know that a lot of people will ignore the rules and just meet anyway.

The government can then manufacture a ‘worrying rise in cases’ after Christmas, caused by parties – there will be selected footage of arrests and ‘show trials’ for the media – and say that, unfortunately, because of this, much tighter lockdowns must be introduced. ‘We did try to warn you’ etc.

If they ‘allow’ Christmas they can’t blame people for meeting, so it’s harder for them to introduce new lockdowns. Cancelling Christmas at the last minute also means that most people will have done their shopping and provided tax for the government, which is all they care about.

Hancock and his chums are taking their instructions from George Orwell’s writings. Worth is judged merely by work output. Weddings and family events like funerals, family gatherings, church, anywhere where free speech and opinions can be shared has been crushed out of existence. A current cartoon has it right. Why would you take a vaccine that is so safe that compulsion is required for an illness you don’t know you have unless you take a test? Stop testing unless people are actually hospitalised and the plandemic will vanish.

I believe the hour is drawing near when we need to think seriously about how far we are prepared to resist. One thing that occurred to me is, has anyone heard of anyone actually jailed solely for breaking covid ‘rules’? I have not been able to find any cases online – only those in which there were other offences, and the papers put ‘breaking covid rules’ in for effect. I’d like to think this is good news, but it may of course just mean that most people are compliant and those that are not are sheepishly paying their FPNs.

Majority of Brits call for Christmas bubble to be scrapped

The majority of Britons say the relaxation of rules over Christmas should be dropped, and current rules should be maintained over Christmas, according to a snap poll by YouGov.

Just 31 per cent say the relaxation of rules over Christmas should go ahead as planned, while 57 per cent think the bubble plan should be scrapped.

I have done quite a few YouGov polls and I do think they may be conducted in a way to skew results. They have to invite you to certain polls before you can take part so the sample is never completely random. I expressed an anti-lockdown view a while back in one poll and have never been invited to any other polls asking about lockdown measures, even though I know there have been many. I suspect that they only invite the people who expressed pro-lockdown views in earlier surveys, in which case they are starting with a biased sample to start with.

This gives information about Hancock’s new strain which gives him a new impetus to lock us down. We are in the time of super information which only obscures our public health action. This information and especially if this strain were to be found after many vaccinated came down with it (or other strains), that would have interest and public health impact. But now?
This virus is now endemic with us forever unextinguishable. There are thousands of slight genetic variants around of great interest for virologists but how is public heath going to handle this information? Are we going to lockdown every time a new strain occurs in our neighbourhood? Everybody knows that the virus will come back every time restrictions are lifted in the best of the world and most likely lockdown having minimal effect on the actual spread of the different strains.

This is the problem with the whole pandemic response. They have created a technological monster with super testing costing escalting amounts of resources draining the society. Money is being spend to test the virus instead of using those resources to strengthen ICU beds etc which will be useful right now for everybody and for the future in case a real flu pandemic would occur.  Let us see which is the first politician who has the guts to stamp on the breaking pedal.

I completely agree, but the notion that a politician will break ranks is extremely unlikely.
Johnson, however ridiculous figure, clearly would like to see the end to perpetual lockdown. However, he is a political windsock, having no convictions other than going without whatever is popular. Trump, for all his faults was staunchly sceptical, but was crucified in the press for daring to recover from the Rona. Starmer is busy trying to outdo Oliver Cromwell in banning Christmas. I just don’t see it. I think the only hope is Johnson in the sense that if the media and public perception shifts, he will jump on it overnight.

An article in the International Journal of Clinical Practice recently regarding:

“Informed consent disclosure to vaccine trial subjects of risk of COVID‐19 vaccines worsening clinical disease”
says the vaccine trial participants were not fully informed about the risks in the way medical ethics would dictate. Yet those taking the vaccine now aren’t being informed at all about the risk of vaccine enhanced disease, nor is the media telling them.
The FDA’s review and authorization documents for the vaccine acknowledge that Pfizer and the FDA see an “important risk” of future vaccine enhanced disease that isn’t yet known since the trials are ongoing. Yet the FDA provided information for vaccine recipients says *nothing* about this risk.
Out of frustration I collected links to government documents and scientific journal articles on this issue and created a site with more information and a petition, this is the start of it:

Millions of people are lining up to get Pfizer’s COVID-19 shot without being told the FDA sees a risk they will get a more severe case of COVID-19 after the initial protection fades. Testing hasn’t lasted long enough to find out. If the public isn’t warned about *all* risks now, they may not trust vaccines even if full testing demonstrates them to be safe.
The UK, US and Canadian governments provide documents for patients and health care workers explaining the vaccine. Yet as of Dec. 12th, 2020: none of those mention this important issue acknowledged by the US government only in sources most people will never read.
The non-partisan US government’s Congressional Research Service explained : “experts are concerned about the potential for vaccine enhanced disease, in which vaccination could worsen the health effects of COVID-19 infections […]. Animal studies of other coronavirus vaccines have found some potential for vaccine enhanced disease”
A medical journal says after the dengue vaccine’s initial effect faded “vaccinated children in the 2–5 year age group, were found to be nearly 8 times likely to be hospitalized for severe dengue, compared to children in the placebo group”.
The FDA’s initial review of the Pfizer and BiNTech vaccine says its makers “identified vaccine-associated enhanced disease including vaccine-associated enhanced respiratory disease as an important potential risk.” and the FDA adds “risk of vaccine-enhanced disease over time, potentially associated with waning immunity, remains unknown and needs to be evaluated further in ongoing clinical trials and in observational studies”. Unfortunately the short testing period wasn’t long enough to assess the risk.
Media in countries hit hard by COVID-19 haven’t called attention to the issue to date. In contrast a Japanese paper quoted the director of the Japanese Society of Clinical Virology: “Concerns over ADE still remain. I am an elderly person myself, but if I were asked, I would say I don’t want to get a shot.” Elsewhere he explained : “In the past, a dengue vaccine proved effective in tests and was widely used, but then it worsened symptoms for people who were still getting infected.”. A leading professor of Immunology testified to Japan’s House of Representatives: “There’s no doubt that their effectiveness is quite high, but their safety is not guaranteed at all”.
Hopefully continued testing will discover COVID-19 vaccines are safe over the long run, but they don’t understand COVID-19 well enough to predict that. More info and the source links for all of this at BuildVaccineTrust.com

303678 ▶▶ Derek Toyne, replying to BuildVaccineTrust, 3, #1377 of 1665 🔗

Your message is spot on, but here’s another fact everyone should know over 99% of the population are covid free. The best vaccine keeps 95% covid free so our own immunity is far better than any vaccine.So who needs a vaccine, after 70 our immunity begins declining and those whose immunity is impaired, in other words all those who have unfortunately died of covid. I believe due to our aged population and modern medicine keeping those with impaired immunity alive that is 20%. We already have herd immunity WHO state we need 60% vaccinated or through prior immunity or from natural infection.

I wouldn’t at all be surprised if the UK police carry out genocide in the next year or so, the TSG ones I have seen in central London are brainwashed dangerous individuals, no one above is going to stop them.

Or in all likelihood they haven’t caught it and are a bunch of false positives in a ward together. I wonder if they separate them based on whether they’re actually experiencing any covid symptoms or not? Are the Doctors treating them all as though they have covid? Do the Doctors get told how many cycles of the PCR test it took to get a positive test as an indication of viral load? Utterly bonkers.

303746 ▶▶ A. Contrarian, replying to janis pennance, 5, #1412 of 1665 🔗

That explains why hospitals have such an infection issue then. Any false positives are lumped in with true positives, whether symptomatic or not, whereupon they promptly catch it.

They should at the very least be separating out symptomatic vs asymptomatic surely?

Well said JohnD, this place is full of loonies who just won’t accept the facts. The fact is we must do what the government says to save lives. It’s all about the lives saved. Hospitals are overwhelmed at the moment. My local hospital only has 300 beds and there are two people with the virus in there at the moment. It won’t take long for it to be overwhelmed so everyone must think of others and give up their life to keep others safe. Thank god they aren’t doing operations, cancer treatments and diagnosis because any second now they’re going to be overwhelmed with the killer virus. It’s not like it’s unreasonable, after all a virus must float around everywhere, as is it’s nature, so if i have to stay in for the rest of my life to be safe then i must do that. And anyway you and i are on the side of people like Piers Morgan and Prince Charles and that nice German chap who wants us to reset society by making all business between humans conducted with the government by our side keeping us safe. Why wouldn’t we all want that? I mean folks here cite some pretty impressive scientists with all sorts of evidence but they don’t work for SAGE so despite being Professional Virologists and Doctors and Scientists their work counts for nothing. Only the ones used by Boris Johnstone are allowed a view. He knows best and is doing everything he can to keep us safe. Thank god for that. Sure i smoke, drink, abuse myself and ride bikes but i do it all safely. The fact i haven’t been able to go to the pub, play live gigs with my band, go to race meetings every Sunday is nothing compared to the tragic death of an 85 year old who’s lived their life and has spent the last five years sitting in a chair waiting to die. If some 90 year old lives just one day longer than they would have had they caught the virus they whole thing will have been worth it.
Stick round bro you and i could be buddies and we can put these lunatic skeptic losers in their place, after all they want to kill old people and in my book that makes them as bad as people who listen to music with rapping in it.

The Daily Mirror article on Witty & fertility in the round up really is a corker. It honestly starts with the opening line:

“Professor Chris Whitty has effectively ruled out the prospect of a coronavirus vaccine affecting people’s fertility.”

Which really is bloody good of him when you think about it. We should be really grateful for him for ruling it out. On the other hand, the article goes on to quote the great man:

Prof Whitty said: “There is no current evidence of any impact on fertility.”

Hmm, that’s not quite the same thing now is it Daily Mirror?

I also love this belter of a line:

“It comes after baseless claims about the vaccine circulated online in recent weeks.”

Would that be the screenshots of the government’s own guidance which states that the impact of the vaccine on fertility is unknown. Hey, you wanna know another way to say the impact on fertility is unknown:

“There is no current evidence of any impact on fertility”

A covid-entranced friend sent me a link to a Guardian article yesterday – she meant it as a bridging gesture. She thought we would both agree it was good. It was about the impact of this year on patterns of thought and mental response.
Of course, it was entirely predicated on the idea that we have all been facing an existential threat this year. Well I for one have not been facing any kind of existential threat; however I have, as a person who lives alone, and depends enthusiastically on daily experiences in the public sphere, been facing a massive psychological threat, constituted by the near total abrogation of human community beyond the nuclear family unit.
At one point in the article, the journalist wrote about the experience of being shocked by catching sight of an unmasked cleaner in the background of a zoom call. Where to even BEGIN with such a ludicrous, bizarre and – let’s be honest – politically inexcusable ‘experience’?

You’ve put it beautifully. Thank goodness my daughter found herself a boyfriend in late August or my husband and I would be dealing with a mental health crisis I’m sure. She’s a student teacher and is considered “high risk” among her friends and friends’ parents so she hasn’t seen most friends for a while now. We have moved out of Toronto permanently so she doesn’t see us very often anymore. If not for this wonderful person she’s now pretty much living with, she’d be stuck in locked-down Toronto with literally nobody. I am so angry for the young people and for people who live alone — it’s positively inhumane what our governments are doing to them/you. I think it’s the same in the UK in that people who live alone are “allowed” a significant other to get together with, but if you didn’t already have someone it’s very difficult to meet new people under these dystopian circumstances. In Toronto you can’t go inside a restaurant or coffee shop and it’s full-on winter so it’s rather difficult to meet someone new outdoors. Oh, and tell your friend to stop sharing — I had to do that with a friend of mine and we’ve been able to stay friends.

Hi everyone! I’ve been into York city centre a lot recently and have been delighted at what I’ve seen. There’s a lovely carousel which was heaving with kids and parents last weekend, very few of whom were masked. Plenty of people generally milling around the shops and restaurants on early Saturday evening despite the rain wind and cold. There were some buskers who attracted a sizeable crowd of unmuzzled and non socially distant folks too.

I’ve recently got a job in a local catering facility and was similarly chuffed by my experiences there. Some had not bothered with the not dining with anyone outside your household bollocks (York is tier 2) whilst others had booked separate tables but were talking across them. Then there’s the matter of staff masks – a good portion of the staff pulled down their masks when not in view of the customers, and I’ve been told masks are unnecessary before guests arrive. Which goes to show the whole thing is… well, for show!

In other news I’m staying round my boyfriend’s house for a few days. His mum picked me up from my house and said “I would give you a hug but some fuckers will start whinging”!! Bearing in mind his family live in a tier 3 area and specifically invited me round, I don’t think they give a shit, huzzah!

Quick Report from the Day – Morning to Night. Hampshire.

Far too many people driving around cars on the road after 10am and in the middle of the day, especially couples in BMWs/Audis/Mercs. Why are they not at work? How come they are together? These cars used to be parked at the local station or the business car park on a week day. Not any more. Many in middle/southern seem to England love knockdown. They have more freedom and money. It is unfortunate and won’t last forever.

Car parks at local shops e.g Pets at Home totally heaving during the day – normally only 1/5 full. Lots of people skiving from work. Used to be only this busy at weekends.

Council car park empty…drove past it. What do they do for a living? Why are we paying public servants to skive?

Pub 40% up on last week. 3 brothers to my left were not brothers. Family to the right were 3 generations living in separate households (we guess), and friend of the family 20 meters away was with 3 buddies. Pub far more relaxed. People adapt.

Took us 2 minutes longer to get to the pub due to evening traffic – people visiting friends and family under cover of darkness? Roads packed at 6pm and 8pm. Wierd.

Finally, we reckon European Catholic countries like France, Italy and Spain will not cancel Xmas, ever, so therefore neither will Boris. Have been wrong before but would probably bet a tenner on it. Its probably more political scare bollocks.

The government subjects the populace to fear propaganda 24/7, government advisors issue warnings about Christmas, SAGE imply that thousands will die if we hug each other, etc. Then they send out a poll essentially asking if people are scared. That’s not research to inform policy that’s research to check the psychological warfare is working. It also then serves the purpose of flimsily validating the direction of travel because a percentage can be waved about.

Yes – yougov is not polls, it is propaganda.

All polls have become propaganda.

Maybe we should all sign up to YouGov. That would skew their results a bit! 😈

Yes! I’ve signed up and muddled up their expectations a bit already!
We need mass action – a signed letter to MPs, BBC, all the major newspapers, put a “No” or “1984” sign on a mask if wearing one, or even mass exemption requests. I believe there is now a need for organized action, for all the opposition groups to start working together.
