Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights

Article 6 – Consent

3. In appropriate cases of research carried out on a group of persons or a community, additional agreement of the legal representatives of the group or community concerned may be sought. In no case should a collective community agreement or the consent of a community leader or other authority substitute for an individual’s informed consent.

The experimental stages led up to this, and we’re now well and truly into the administration of Agenda 21-30, the Great Reset. Eventually, even those sceptics on here who are still scared of labels will come to terms with this – sooner the better because time is being wasted.

357939 ▶▶▶▶ ShropshireLass, replying to J4mes, 28, #9 of 2133 🔗

Wholeheartedly agree J4mes. I originally dismissed the WEF’s Great Reset and Fourth Industrial Revolution plans as a conspiracy theory – until I saw a white paper on the government website where it clearly states the UK government has formed a partnership with the WEF. Then I spent more than a day trawling through as much of the content of the WEF website as I could manage. What I found there – in plain sight, was absolutely chilling and I couldn’t believe what is being planned for us all (a lot of which is hidden under what on the surface sounds like laudable and even altruistic reasoning, but beneath that the reality of what many of the plans will actually mean – or lead to in practice is appalling and horrifying – total slavery for 99% of the world’s population.

I don’t think there’s much point in invoking human rights conventions. Our most basic human rights, guaranteed in umpteen international and national declarations, conventions, laws etc, have been trampled on for months and no human rights pundit seems to care in the slightest. Nor, of course, do the zombies.

357363 ▶▶▶ cloud6, replying to Annie, 16, #17 of 2133 🔗

Human Rights Act not worth the paper it’s printed on, it has get out of jail cards that make it worthless. The Conservatives have a plan to abolish the present (1997) legislation.

357436 ▶▶▶▶ Nick Rose, replying to cloud6, 6, #18 of 2133 🔗

Human Rights Act is an EU construct, so yes, it needs to go. A more robust use of the Bill of Rights (Petition of Right in Scotland) is required.

357664 ▶▶▶▶▶ John001, replying to Nick Rose, 7, #19 of 2133 🔗

The European Convention of Human Rights was produced by the Council of Europe, a separate body and predating the EEC and the EU. All European countries belong to it. If you look back to find who wrote the ECHR you find names of Tory lawyers, close colleagues of a man called … what’s his name … ah, Churchill.

357693 ▶▶▶▶▶ Rowan, replying to Nick Rose, 5, #20 of 2133 🔗

There is no chance of any of the UK governments introducing more robust human rights legislation. You’d be throwing the baby out with the bathwater. We hold on to what we have got, there is no chance of anything better.

Nah. Poor example for our descendants.

As more and more folk return to normal, Gollum will stumble, rumours of Aslan’s return will spread, Gryffindor will win the qidditch cup, Liverpool will retain the Premier League title, and Lucky Jack Aubrey will sail into port with more prizes than you could shake a stick at.

357367 ▶▶▶ Anti_socialist, replying to Annie, 15, #22 of 2133 🔗

WTF! So we should just abandon international law because our current government ignores our human rights, should we?

There’s one reason only why people are currently ignoring human rights violations, the liberal leftists who assert health is a right to overrule all others.

Which is clearly ludicrous because good health isn’t gift anyone can assure or guarantee.

357608 ▶▶▶▶ JHUNTZ, replying to Anti_socialist, 2, #23 of 2133 🔗

Well it either needs to be heavily amended or replaced as it is currently not fit for purpose.

It seems that we can be locked up indefinitely, fined and abused by police for soing orfinary, normal things, but anyone can wander into the country and get four star treatment.

Right on! Quebec just imposed another lockdown/curfew a few days ago. No one allowed out and about after 8 P.M. And PM Trudeau is mulling over having another Federal election just 15 months after the last one. They’re going for the kill.

357378 ▶▶▶ Van Allen, replying to Annie, 13, #26 of 2133 🔗

The zombies don’t care because they have been brainwashed. Surely this is also against human rights?

357916 ▶▶▶▶ J4mes, replying to Van Allen, 9, #27 of 2133 🔗

Exactly. It’s important to remind ourselves routinely that our friends and family have been thoroughly brainwashed through threat of death.

I quit Facebook a few days ago. The last action I took was to report a W.H.O. post about Covid19 as terrorism.

We’ll be invoking human rights conventions when the Corona Trials are underway!

358004 ▶▶▶ NorthumbrianNomad, replying to Annie, 12, #29 of 2133 🔗

The UN Convention says it’s a human right that you must be allowed to leave your home country. And China is among the member states currently policing this principle.

The UN has been a joke for at least thirty years. The other organs of the old post-war order are the same. Trump was right that they needed to be ditched.

358571 ▶▶▶ bebophaircut, replying to Annie, 2, #30 of 2133 🔗

If you read the U.N.’s Declaration on Human Rights you will notice that it is, on the whole, vague, wishwashy and subject to interpretations that could go either way.

I do not consent to ANY non-pharmaceutical intervention and will view evidence before deciding on any pharmaceutical remedies.

357521 ▶▶ Jinks, replying to Anti_socialist, 25, #32 of 2133 🔗

The sleight of hand is wicked. It is NOT a vaccine, it’s a biologic agent given approval for experimental use, akin to being offered an experimental cancer treatment, when severely ill. And people are NOT being informed of this very simple fact. Hence the exemption from liability for the pharmaceutical companies

357698 ▶▶▶ Rowan, replying to Jinks, 19, #33 of 2133 🔗

It might help if the odd journalist started reporting the truth. 1538 deaths on Wednesday is a lie. This is the scam that allowed this rancid government to carry this shit through the summer and lead to what we have now.

There is no reason why Bunter can’t start lifting some restrictions on Feb 1st in rural areas as the seasonal peak fades weeks into the past. Ring Ron DeSANCTIS in Florida not wannabee celebrity Van Tam to see how it is done.

357522 ▶▶ Mr Taxpayer, replying to nottingham69, 19, #41 of 2133 🔗

There were 1600 deaths per day in UK in 2019. If there are 1,500 covid deaths, does that mean 3,000+ total. If that were the case, why is my local priest not conducting twice as many funerals? Anybody work in the funeral industry and able to say if trade has doubled???

357711 ▶▶▶ Rowan, replying to Mr Taxpayer, 13, #42 of 2133 🔗

At least LS today starts with a positive story but then describes Sherelle Jacobs’ writing as a ‘thoughtful piece’. This is wrong as she has swallowed the establishment line 98%. She talks about vaccines being a good thing – sceptics know this is rubbish. She also says there are so many Covid cases under 60 in ICUs; this is also rubbish as no-one knows how to test for Covid. Please LS, stop publishing people talking nonsense and telling us they are ‘worth reading in full’!

BB: Because lockdown is a method of population control.
Politics is less a Left-Right thing now, more liberal/conservative/populist vs elite/authoritarian dynamic. The latter is a sort of global /fascism being imposed on the greater populations from the top down.
The so-called right, i.e. Tories, Republicans, have conceded ground to the far left, so they’re fairly indistinguishable. The Left of past decades, who used to fight for civil liberties, human rights, etc, no longer do that. That fight has switched to the classic liberals and conservatives small c).
The far Left despises the working classes, as they’ve not risen up to fight off and overthrow their oppressors.
Those who do still believe in freedom of speech, individual liberties are now across the political spectrum, both the old left and right.

This is Steve Baker as reported in The Telegraph in December:

A MPs rebellion could be “enormous” if lockdown doesn’t end in December, Steve Baker has said.
Mr Baker said that members of Government have made it clear to the whips that they would vote against a third lockdown.
It comes after Richard Drax, the Tory MP for South Dorset, said as many as 100 Conservative MPs are willing to rebel against extending the national lockdown after December 2.
Both Mr Drax and Mr Baker joined 53 Tories in defying the Prime Minister by failing to vote for the second nationwide Covid lockdown.

William Morris is unfortunately best remembered today for designing wallpaper, but he was a socialist idealist of the 19th century. His utopian novel “News From Nowhere” is worth a read. If only for the moment when the protagonist – waking up one morning and finding himself in a distant, socialist future, is being shown around London and discovers that the Houses of Parliament have been turned into a “dung market”. The protagonist challenges his guide to explain:

“What kind of a government have you? Has republicanism finally triumphed? or have you come to a mere dictatorship, which some persons in the nineteenth century used to prophesy as the ultimate outcome of democracy? Indeed, this last question does not seem so very unreasonable, since you have turned your Parliament House into a dung-market. Or where do you house your present Parliament?”

The old man answered my smile with a hearty laugh, and said: “Well, well, dung is not the worst kind of corruption; fertility may come of that, whereas mere dearth came from the other kind, of which those walls once held the great supporters. Now, dear guest, let me tell you that our present parliament would be hard to house in one place, because the whole people is our parliament.”

357387 ▶▶▶▶▶ Annie, replying to NorthumbrianNomad, 6, #65 of 2133 🔗

Love that book. Morris’s prose is much underrated. My favourite character is the dustman who wears cloth of gold. His friends think he’s bonkers, but as he’s a dustman you have to make allowances.

Both my grandfathers were staunch Labour men. Both reached adulthood in the 1930’s (one began working in 1928, having left school at 14). Both had an active role in the Second World War and, thankfully, both returned home.

Their belief was that best health, best possible education, a welfare safety net to support those in need, social justice, decent housing and jobs for all would lead to a healthy and happy population. State ownership was not a problem because the State was their servant. They were also patriots, to both country and people.

In fine, they wanted the best for as many people as possible, wanted things to get better. They may or may not have been misguided, but their beliefs were shaped by their life experiences.

But what we see now – and not just from the Left, but also the Right – is pigs with snouts trapped in the trough. Our “public services” appear to believe they rule and not serve. Politicians are patriotic to themselves only, our health service is mediocre at best, our education system a shambles, welfare is apparently for the entire world at our expense, social justice is gone.

The modern Left appear to take the view it is best to have as many dependent people as possible, as they will form a captive vote, and also display an unpleasant authoritarian aroma. The modern Right appear to take the view that ordinary people are little more than a commodity, existing for their benefit only, and also display an unpleasant authoritarian aroma.

As a country, we have totally lost our way. Now the failings of our system have been laid bare, we have the opportunity to put things right. Yes, there will be mistakes along the way, but we can correct mistakes as long as we recognise them for what they are.

But we cannot continue as we are.

Well said. My dad was a labour supporter up till the say his union at Spittalfields market nearly lost them all their jobs going on strike. He was terrified we would lose our house as no money was coming in. He went cap in hand to the bank manager expecting a cuff round the ear. Instead he found an educated man who helped him stretch the mortgage a bit by freezing the payments for a couple of months. He was eternally grateful to this man who said as he was leaving, if you think the union guys have got your back, check out if they are all suffering. After returning to work he found the two union guys had been paid the whole time by the union! Never voted Labour again.
I think the problem to me is there does not appear to be any difference between the two parties. They both have pictures of “our Tony” on their bedroom wall. Not because of his achievements but because of his popularity? The Labour still appears to have a sudo far left with the momentum gang, but they seem to be unelectable, these “freedom loving” rebels have been invisible during this shitshow. They are okay with banning and enforcement action on freedom protests? How can this be? There does not appear to be a far right in the tory party. I am not a Corbyn fan but would we be in in a different situation with the good comrade in charge?

It’s good to see Steve Baker speaking out again but the man is schizophrenic! He abstained from voting on the third lockdown when he should have been front, right and centre, beating his chest and crying out “NO MORE! ” from every corner of the Commons. I believe he’s playing a game. I don’t trust any of them, and here is why as Baker later tweeted:

“What this country needs is the complete success of
@BorisJohnson, with his excellent EU deal, a successful vaccination programme and a #Road2Recovery back to freedom. I am clear Boris is the only person to lead us out of these difficulties and I support him in that endeavour.”

So there we have it. Clearly mortified that his tinpot rebellion has been leaked to the Fat Dictator, he grovels to save his political career. Pathetic. The only route out of this is for life to get so miserable for so many that non-compliance becomes essential to survive – see the #IoApro movement in Italy for instance, where 50,000 restaurants are set to open simultaneously from today in a direct challenge to government restrictions. Best of luck to them.

It’s good that an MP is speaking out, we need all the numbers we can. But I agree. Absolutely pathetic toadying to fat boy. Happened countless times over Brexit with Theresa May, and now again. They threaten dissent only to slink back into the shadows at the first sign of personal risk to their career. I think for many of them, it is a CV strategy. Go down on paper as having been skeptical, so that they can later point to that moment to defend themselves next election without any immediate consequences. There’s exceptions. Graham Brady, Desmond Swain. But where’s the left wing firebrands? Those who since the 80s have been at odds with New labour and now see their poor communities decimated? There’s a few on the right, but as far as I can tell, the left are absolutely in line with Starmer?

I think for many of them, it is a CV strategy. Go down on paper as having been skeptical, so that they can later point to that moment to defend themselves next election without any immediate consequences.”
On current form. Do you think that there will be a next election? Bunter and his mates are quite capable of thinking up reasons to “postpone the locals in May, that are already overdue from May 2020.They may be may be afraid to discover what the electorate really think. Then they also have the fear that nice Mr Farage is waiting on the sidelines. Any bets on the general election in 2024?

I keep hearing about Gab so I just had a look. Have you seen the Wikipedia reference? They describe it thus:

Gab is an American alt-tech social networking service known for its far-right userbase. Widely described as a haven for extremists including neo-Nazis , white supremacists , white nationalists , and the alt-right , it has attracted users and groups who have been banned from other social media and users seeking alternatives to mainstream social media platforms. Gab claims to promote free speech and individual liberty , though these statements have been criticized as being a shield for its alt-right and extremist ecosystem. Antisemitism is prominent among the site’s content, and the company itself has engaged in antisemitic commentary on Twitter.

Well that demonstrates Wikipedia’s level of objectivity quite effectively, I’d say.

As I said somewhere here in an indirect fashion, our businesses should copy Italy as their way of protesting against the government. I despair at how blind and stupid these businesses are not to realise that they’ve been had and are becoming complicit in their own demise.

Also demonstrated by the supermarkets recently although hopefully some push back is now happening.

357532 ▶▶▶ kh1485, replying to Bart Simpson, 11, #103 of 2133 🔗

I agree in principle but not only do businesses have to contend with the authorities, they also have to deal with commercial landlords. Any breach of the law (I know, it’s a stupid law) could potentially put you in breach of the terms of your lease. Although you could remedy that breach quite easily and then perhaps not be subject to eviction, if you were to look for alternative premises, this could count against you. Being a business owner does not mean you are free to act in the way you want, sadly.

357578 ▶▶▶▶ Bart Simpson, replying to kh1485, 7, #104 of 2133 🔗

That’s frightening if that’s the case that said I wonder that surely the landlords must be despairing too because I don’t see them earning anything in terms of rent.

Key to this is planning and critical mass. Restaurants tried to do this last week here in CH, but in the end not enough joined in. I think they also foolishly planned to open on a Monday during day. Better would have been, say, Thurs evening (when we — and I think many more — could have gone). But keeping fingers crossed for Italy.

I told my wife that (given the chance?) I will vote for Reform UK in any future? elections.
She said that “you will vote for a party whose values you have hated and detested all of your life, WHY?”
I class Nigel Farage as a bigger opportunist liar than the Bozzer (and that takes some doing) but I listened to Richard Tice on TR the other morning and apart from his right wing rhetoric of “a can do” attitude, I was impressed by his common sense ( as is TR) over the over hysterical measures supported by the main stream parties and the MSM.
When this madness is over then I will have to see what the situation will be in the future as pertains to “politics” and “common sense”.

Really sorry for you. It is bad enough having a brother who is a lockdown enthusiast and parents who fluctuate by the hour between anger and fear. It has made family life a constant knife edge. But luckily my wife shares my beliefs, albeit less of an activist. Can’t imagine not having that respite when you close the door at night. These kind of forums are just so vital.
Like yourself, I have sworn never to vote labour again. Not a conservative either and certainly not now. Greens are a one trick pony. LibDems have all the solidity of a windsock.

Totally agree. From the same background. I think the problem with this virus response has, in large part, due to political posturing and divide and rule tactics by the political mainstream. This has been made into a political argument and has essentially asked people to take sides. Political tribalism has ensued. If your a sceptic you support Brexit and Trump, if you are a lockdown zealot you are one of us, the nice guys.

Some posters on this website seem to have swallowed this whole and seem intent on entrenching those divisions through their comments. But, peeking through the fog of bullshit, it quickly becomes apparent that there are many people with left wing values who are equally as angry about all this as those on the right.

It is so vitally important that this infighting does not spread as the authorities want it to do. You might not realise it but this is the trap they want us to fall into.

Left wing, right wing, it doesn’t matter. Those on the right should be pleased there are left wing voices in this debate because it means that these divide and rule tactics have only worked to a certain degree.

I have wrestled with my support for the ‘left’ over the last few months. I’ve come to the conclusion that my principles are unchanged but the Labour party no longer represents them, they have become nothing more than the great enablers of neo-liberalism and have lost any understanding of the people they are supposed to represent.

The fact that I have lost support for the party doesn’t mean I don’t believe in the principles of democratic socialism. I would say that ‘the left’, posters are so angry with, don’t really represent the left at all.

Following on from an earlier post about the thousands of restaurants reopening “illegally” in Italy, imagine if the same happened here, and it soon spread to gyms, bars, pubs & hairdressers. How many of these businesses would be supported by their regulars and the wider public? I suspect quite a few. THAT would be the true marker of support for the government’s draconian policies – if these businesses could sustain themselves despite flouting the restrictions, then all of the polls claiming support for these measures collapse overnight. The yearning for normality will be proven to outweigh fear of the virus.

That I suspect is what the government is absolutely petrified of – a large scale revolt showing that actually, they do NOT have the backing of the people. Then, the mask will slip once and for all – the heavy-handed response by Johnson and Co will force the public to quickly realise that we are being ruled by a clutch of evil despots, not a benevolent, compassionate state who simply want to “save lives.”

Surely a prerequisite of being in Government is reasonable intelligence and an ability to see the main thing. When you see the main thing but do not do anything about it, you have ceased to be of any worth in my opinion. There must be more men and women in Government who understand but simply do not have the moral fibre/guts to stand up. That is a frightening thing.

What’s really needed is more of a push back like in Italy and the rest to follow.

My daughter works for a BMW dealers, they did not close for the last lockdown as they were cheating as a click and collect and car service operation. They have remained open but got shopped by a lockdown zealot and had a visit yesterday. So now they (and I swear this is true) are all sitting in the dark with the blinds pulled down on the sales side. Rock on!! Need more firms to do this!

Whilst we may have our criticisms of what appears in this newsletter, it does now seem to represent the only source of any attempt at an incisive and rational challenge to the covid zealot narrative. It did look for a time that the CEBM headed by Carl Heneghan might be taking on that role but it would seem that they have been ‘nobbled’ and we now hear little from them.
Carl Heneghan did recently re-tweet an item about ONS death stats but made no comment himself. It was clear from the comments to that re-tweet that a proper presentation and analysis of death stats is needed but it now seems we are dependent on Will and Toby doing this sort of thing and presenting the comments here.

The MPs who are against all this insanity should be more robust in their opposition and if needs be trigger a vote of no confidence in this government.

Businesses, institutions and venues should stop pussyfooting and kowtowing to the government. Surely they should know by now that they’ve been complicit in their own demise. They should follow the example of Italy and open en masse with no restrictions and no “Covid safety” measures. Remember businesses outnumber the police and council authorities.

Sure they will get fined and attempts will be made to close them but like the gym owners and that hairdresser, cry foul, refuse to pay and demand that it goes to court. If they all did this, the authorities will be tied down for the next 50,000 years.

Meanwhile we ordinary members of the public should carry on ignoring the rules and restrictions and fight back any insanity whenever we can.

357419 ▶▶▶ FerdIII, replying to Julian, 11, #241 of 2133 🔗

Yes and the ONS stats only available for week ending Jan 1, so can’t look at the total data sets. I have little confidence in the veracity of the published stats, especially when comparing to years previous, in which it is clear that they are moving flu-resp-pneu into CV 19 – by my reckoning well over 30 K dead.

I built an app based on their data to do analysis….and their data sets are to be blunt, a bloody joke. NHS ‘agencies’ feed the ONS, there is no ‘end to end’ verifiable process, nor data validation. The data sets published are csv files and they are manipulated.

Within data sets I found that their own numbers do not add up ie. if I add up by week to get a month and they have published a sub data set of totals by month, the details by week, do not add up to the monthly summary file.

357416 ▶▶ kvnmoore561, replying to FerdIII, 5, #242 of 2133 🔗

Has anyone tried to put these figures into context and are they actually accurate (something that I highly doubt)? Is this reported deaths? Since everyone going into hospital is now tested and if they test positive and then die are they all getting put down as Covid (this is something that I’ve anecdotally heard is happening)? If this is distorting what is really going on, which I think it is, then what is the real situation? It seems to me that even though these figures are supposedly worse than the first ‘wave’ – I hate that term – people are acting a lot differently, the roads are busy, people are going out, etc. It’s just so insane the situation that we find ourselves in.

357423 ▶▶▶ FerdIII, replying to kvnmoore561, 6, #243 of 2133 🔗

The entire data collection, publishing workflows needs a huge, thorough end to end audit, starting with the MCCD and going forward all the way to the ONS published csv files. This must be demanded in Parliament.

We also need a 2nd audit on financial incentives, are hospitals receiving more of the billions in CV budget if they ramp up the CV porn?

Under March 2020 new laws, the old system of the MCCD was stopped. The new one is subjective – one doctor who does not need to see you before you die, can assess why you died, no clinical proof is now needed. So if the nurse says you had a fever etc it might be that CV shows up on the MCCD (there may be more budget avail for the hospital in this case). And, the presence of any flu RNA even post death (tested or not before you die) would probably mean the same.

It would be nice if an MP or someone in the Fake News understood something about data flows including how corrupted most ‘big data flows’ are in real life.

358827 ▶▶▶ PastImperfect, replying to kvnmoore561, #244 of 2133 🔗

In hospital, anyone testing negative is tested again and again until they test positive.

357466 ▶▶ Steve Martindale, replying to FerdIII, 18, #245 of 2133 🔗

In my personal view the only death data that stands as absolutely correct and irrefutable is the ONS published total of registered deaths from all causes. The death registration system is well established even after coronavirus act modifications and the figures are the gold standard.
One of the issues is that when this hoo-haa started they decided that death registration data was coming out too slowly and so they set up a fast system to get daily data but that inevitably has lead to dodgy data especially the weird data of deaths within 28 days of a +ve test. You might as well publish data on deaths within 28 days of cutting your toenails and then blame toenail cutting for deaths.
What really annoys me is when people say that deaths are as bad now as they were in April/May when the ONS total deaths were over double the 5 year average compared to now when we are about normal.
Mind you i have seen people on Twitter effectively arguing that the reason there are few other respiratory deaths at present is due to face-masks and social distancing and that if we did not have covid but had still taken precautions we would now be having the lowest death rates in modern times. I have to say that such a view indicates that these folk probably also still believe in the tooth fairy.

My reading of this is that in terms of Mortality Rates per 100,000 people, while 2020 is certainly out of kilter with the preceding 10 years, it is not at all out of kilter with the 9 years before then. These data are for the period January to November only (and for England only). I think the data for January to December are due to be published on 18 January. We will then be able to see the Age-Standardised Mortality Rate per 100,000 for the whole of this calendar year.

What is striking is mortality rate from January to November 2019. This was extraordinarily low, possibly connected with a very mild winter in January/February 2019?

2016, 2017, 2018 are all about 960 deaths

2019 had a low death year (915) leaving many more ready to pop their clogs in 2020 which had a higher death year (1029) – average deaths over these two years 972 deaths
(including deaths from ceasing non-covid healthcare/hospital services)

average deaths over last 20 years is 1043

51 drop from 2018 to 2019 (966 to 915). Add that back to 2018’s 966 gets you to 1016 (to nearest whole number) which isn’t far off 2020’s 1029. So ‘dry tinder’ plus lack of access to NHS for many accounts for it.

In cases were models drive policy and the feedback is official data, there is a feedback loop where official data is massaged to make the models look good, even though this is completely disconnected with reality.

Because the sunken cost of relying on the models cannot be accepted.

Has it not dawned on people yet that the only reason we are still in this mess is that politicians and institutions are covering their arses? That has absolutely nothing to do with the reality of the flu season and all to do with dodging liabilty.

357431 Jane C in France, replying to Jane C in France, 29, #274 of 2133 🔗

Hospitals are always very busy at this time of year. Surely one reason they are even busier at the moment is because people’s immune systems have been wrecked by ten months of on-again off-again house arrest leading to no exercise, bad food and constant fear. For example, I have a friend in her eighties who was so terrified during the first confinement in March and April that she stayed in her flat and hardly went out even to shop for food. So she got no exercise and ate TV dinners. This was a very lively lady who belonged to all sorts of clubs and walked miles every week. When I saw her in the summer she had put on a huge amount of weight. She will be a lot more susceptible to anything that’s going about this winter than she was in previous years.

One of the staff who has recovered and returned to work tells me that

‘unfortunately I took it home to my family and gave it to my little brother, mum and dad (COPD +asthma).
We were all amazed at how mild it was, I used to be really scared of it, we all tested positive but it was no more than a cold, nobody even went to bed and I don’t think we’re going to have any country left soon it’s all such b*ll*cks’.

Your post really encapsulates the whole of this epidemic. For most people covid is barely noticeable. If it hadn’t been labelled covid and without MSM none of us would have known it was a bad flu season.

And the elderly with failing health will often die from a respiratory infection. These germs are all around us all the time. The reason we don’t succumb is because we have immune systems and are active enough to keep our lungs well exercised and well drained. An 85 year old who is bedbound will always be vulnerable whether it is covid or flu or pneumonia.

I think we may be starting to win.

Could the message be finally getting through ?.

Neil Ferguson is now talking about herd immunity (extract from the Times):
“I think we will see growth rates slow,” Ferguson said. “We may see a decline, and that may be slightly aided by the fact that there is quite a lot of herd immunity in places like London.
“Maybe 25% or 30% of the population has now been infected in the first wave and second wave. So that adds to the reduction of transmission.”

Andrew Cuomo is easing restrictions in all of New York state apart from NYC, saying that if they don’t ease up now there will be nothing left to open.

And the New York Times, the mouthpiece of the liberal establishment ran an article yesterday entitled ‘the future of the coronavirus, an annoying childhood infection ?”, which does what it says on the tin.

These are not small victories – these are people and institutions at the heart of the medical and liberal establishments, but of course the advantage is that sheep are easy to herd, so now they’re starting to change direction,…… !

And all to the background of the Mail waking up to and hysterically advertising the fact that the infection rate is going down.

The only downside is the headline death figures, but since excess or incremental deaths are running at about 500-1000 per week now (age adjusted) compared to around 11000 in April, you’d have to be particularly hard of thinking to pay any attention to those. Ditto the ridiculous article on the BBC that deaths are the worst since the second world war.

As the light shines on these figures, people will start to see how ridiculous they are.

Re: A Senior Doctor Writes
Graph 4
On 4th Jan – 200 admitted to London hospitals having tested positive
-800 inpatients tested positive
-7000 inpatients have tested positive

It would be good to know what percentage of the positive tested 800 inpatients were admitted to hospital for reasons unrelated to Covid and caught the virus there. This must be a substantial percentage as all those who develop Covid symptoms at home are asked to get a test immediately. Some will be unable to do this as they may not have access
to a car. Others will find the procedure too much for them.

It looks as though far too many people are still getting infected while in hospital. Why have separate Covid isolation hospitals not been created?

In round terms the average Covid patient stays in hospital for a week. Surely fewer people would need hospital treatment – and their stay reduced – if antivirals, anticoagulants and other treatments were administered to people in their homes as soon as they become ill. Other countries are doing this successfully – Russia for one.

An autoimmune response is when the immune system misidentifies healthy tissue as diseased. It then starts attacking and destroying it. Rheumatoid arthritis is an example.

The government’s rules and restrictions, whose architects are Whitty, Vallance, Hancock and Johnson, have created an autoimmune disease at a societal level. The rules are destroying the healthy “tissue” of society – the development of young children/young people, the way people relate to each other and the population’s physical and mental health.

357463 Steve Hayes, replying to Steve Hayes, 44, #306 of 2133 🔗

It is clear that a few dozen Conservative MPs could bring the lockdown madness to an end. The means is readily available, as shown by Steve Baker’s intervention, holding out the threat of a leadership contest. But his almost immediate expression of loyalty to the leader alas equally clearly shows that there simply isn’t anything like enough lockdown scepticism on the Conservative backbenches. There are more than enough Conservative MPs would are critical of the lockdowns, but almost all of those MPs are apparently not sufficiently brave enough to reject the notion that trying to defeat the virus is, at best a fool’s errand. They apparently know that the lockdowns kill, and do so on a bigger scale than the virus, but cannot find the courage to publicly condemn the childishly stupid “If it saves one life” rhetoric. Those MPs, in my judgement, are guilty of cowardice.

I have never accused anyone of cowardice before. But the enormity of the crimes that have been, and are being committed, in the name of combating the virus are the most serious assault on our rights and liberties, our lives and livelihoods, our culture and our ways of being, that there is a clear and obvious moral imperative to resist the authoritarian madness. Those who are in favour of the lockdowns are actively guilty of crimes against humanity, and those who refuse to do whatever they can to oppose the lockdowns are collaborators. Those Tory MPs, who know that the lockdowns are wrong, but will not use their power to trigger a leadership contest are effectively collaborators. If they were to use their power, they could bring about a speedy end to the madness.

This has long been obvious. When Lockdown Version One was introduced, either they did not exist or they were so few and unorganised, they had no opportunity to be effective. But ever since Lockdown Version Two was suggested that has not been the case. There was already enough of them and the moral, social and economic arguments for a principled opposition were clear enough. Yet their opposition has never risen above mere empty words: enough to absolve them (in their own eyes) of guilt, but never enough to even give the government more than a passing thought for parliamentary tactics.

Anyone who has the power to prevent the terrible harm being done has the moral duty to do so. The Conservative MPs, who oppose the lockdowns, should inform Number Ten that the madness has to end, now. They should inform Number Ten that absent an immediate end to the lockdowns and a clear commitment to never resort to such policies in the future, they will immediately trigger a leadership contest. That is the least they can do.

Just had this from the Beeb regarding my complaint about the ‘blood on hands’ comment the other week:

Dear Ms H

Thank you for getting in touch about our article Covid rule-breakers ‘have blood on their hands’ ( https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-55479018 ).

The article was reporting the comments of an intensive care doctor, who told BBC Radio 5 Live of his concerns with pressures on UK intensive care.

We recognise that these were strong comments but, as the views of a senior medical professional on the frontline providing healthcare during with the pandemic, we think they were newsworthy in raising matters of clear public interest.

Some readers also objected to the fact that the article did not mention those with valid exemptions from wearing masks.

We think most readers would understand Prof Montgomery’s comments to be referring not to those who have an exemption from wearing masks but those who choose not to do so and otherwise do not socially distance or wash their hands.

That is also why our headline referred to “rule-breakers,” which by definition wouldn’t include anyone with a valid exemption.

We have of course reported the rules on wearing masks in some detail, notably in our article Coronavirus: What are the rules for face masks or face coverings? ( https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-51205344 ) where there’s a section focusing on exemptions.

However after considering the point further we have linked this article high up in the piece, where it’s now showing as the first of five links which appear under the fifth paragraph and offer readers more information.

Thank you once again for getting in touch.

I do hope that when you complained you did so in the form of a posted letter, preferably hand-written. It requires far more resource to open a letter, read it, determine who has to respond to it. Potentially scan it to send to the respondee, compose the response, print it and post it out.
They also have to store the letter for GDPR.
Currently during Covid, e-complaints are being dealt with by staff working at home. Physical letters means they have to go to the expense of creating a covid secure space for staff. Make them suffer like they are perpetuating the suffering of the private sector.

I’m going to drive to a supermarket near the coast (thus “legally” shopping) and then go for a walk along a fairly well-known river path. I will probably bring a thermos of something hot and be with a friend. I’m confused as to what is law and what is guidelines only in Wales. Can anyone enlighten me please?

This is the summary of what you must do:

  • Follow social distancing rules with people you don’t live with or who are not in your support bubble.
  • Wear a face covering (if you are able to) in all indoor public places.
  • Stay at home.
  • Not create an extended household (single adults or single parents may join with one other household to form an exclusive support bubble).
  • Meet only the people you live with or your support bubble indoors.
  • Meet only your household or support bubble in private gardens.
  • Meet only your household or support bubble outdoors.
  • Work from home if you can.
  • Not travel without reasonable excuse.
  • Not travel internationally without reasonable excuse.

How you can simultaneously stay at home, and meet your support bubble outdoors, is not explained.
On the principle that what is not forbidden is allowed, I can’t see why you shouldnmt walk anywhere you want.

Thank you, Mr T and Annie. Unfortunately the website states that:
“There are no legal limits on the kind of exercise that is permitted. However, in practice, this will be constrained by other alert level 4 restrictions requiring exercise to start and finish at home”
This is mentioned under the heading of coronavirus rules and legislation, which makes it unclear as to whether this is a rule or a legislation. It is my joy and delight to walk by the estuary or on the coast to watch the birds and other wildlife, but I can’t do that without driving, so that’s why am trying to get really clear on this.

I don’t know for sure but last time I looked at England there is no legislation related to where or how far you can go, all the legislation does is specify that you must have a reasonable reason for leaving the house. They provide a list that is not exhaustive and anything outside of that list is down to the discretion of the police officer stopping you. Obviously they have implied that the rules relate to where you can go but the legislation itself does not. I expect Wales is the same but don’t quote me on it.

She gives facts about the HCQ cover ups, pressure from big pharma to cover up it’s effectiveness.

357546 ▶▶▶ JaneHarry, replying to Andrew K, 3, #360 of 2133 🔗

yes I think her main takeaway is the lack of testing; and the immunity from liability which big pharma has been given, leaving them with no motivation whatsoever to strive to get it right. She concludes that it makes absolutely no sense on a straightforward risk assessment analysis for anyone under the age of 80 to take this vaccine, and while she applauds the public-spiritedness of those who fully informed might nevertheless be prepared to put themselves forward as guinea pigs, she deplores the duping of the population into taking part in clinical trials, in the belief that they are taking a rational step in reducing their risk of disease and death. Her organisation is resolved to fight the mandating of this participation in a medical experiment, wherever it occurs.

This is a psy op and a bluff to encourage frightened people to take up the vaccine. The only mandatory vaccination for travel by WHO was yellow fever, smallpox in earlier days and cholera for entering selected countries. Historically, maritime staff was required to have smallpox vaccine. Never a travel vaccine for flu. This vaccine is not approved in the formal sense but EAU.It is already 10 times more anaphylaxis than flu vaccine. It has already had more problems than the earlier trials with a few deaths unexplained and more deaths in elderly post vaccine that the Norwegian gov not recommending it to the very frail elderly. It cannot be given to pregnant and children and those with severe allergy. And we are only in 4 weeks of mass vaccination and has not counted the Bells palsy and other known side effects. No chance it can be mandatory.

At the moment the tabloids are not reporting the side effect of the vaccine following Gov instructions. Just wait a few weeks in this fierce capitalist competition in the gutter press. Falling revenues etc. You will soon see headlines in Daily Mail “My employer forced me to killer vaccine which ended my pregnancy” “Granny died of experimental vaccine after eating her birthday cake”.
The Anglo-Sachsian countries have an enormous amount of lawyers hungry for fees and litigations (one commented that Japan’s success compared to US was owing to having 20 times less lawyers). In the very unlikely event passports/ test pass were to be required an enormous profitable corrupting system would be in place for everyone not abiding. Already in Gothenburg Sweden, a private travel clinic has issued false test certificate for tourists going abroad. Wouldn’t we have vaccination/test certificates issued in North Macedonia, Moldova and Bangladesh?. How are the planes going to be filled without children and pregnant women etc?

Although a certified Lockdown Sceptic I am also a reader of The Telegraph but I was really annoyed by one of the articles in yesterdays issue.’Record 1564 Covid-related deaths reported, but cases fall’ – so what most of us are thinking is gawd 1564 people died on Wednesday of Covid – thats terrible it just keeps rising. Okay so I start reading the text – ‘the new deaths are largely spread throughout the week and some which occurred in November’ – so 1564 people didnt die on Wednesday at all then? I continued reading – ‘The UK is yet to hit the daily death levels seen in the first wave, when some 1072 people died on April 8th. So far the worst day in the 2nd wave has been Jan 7th when just under 850 people died’. Now hang on a second so the reality is that about half of the headline actually died that day. There is a huge difference between 1564 and (less than) 850!!! Spin, spin and more spin. Fearmongering and anxiety inducing at its best from The Telegraph.

What strikes me is how few over 80’s there are (peak category are people in their 60’s) – it looks like the medics basically give up on the over 80’s as not being saveable (over 80’s represent about 54% of the hospital deaths) and are concentrating on people who they think they might save

This is true. In Ireland in the spring 95% of hospitals deaths did not reach ICU. They were too frail to be given such invasive treatment. It only serves to show that the virus is not moving the dial very much on when people die, years lost.

357901 ▶▶ ituex, replying to Aslangeo, 3, #398 of 2133 🔗

Firstly, there are some patients, many in fact, for whom ITU and invasive ventilation are never beneficial. There needs to be a good chance of full recovery and enough muscle strength to be able to wean the patient off the ventilator or device and cardiac, renal and liver function needs to also be good enough to recover. The frail elderly very rarely have this. Also, many of the seriously ill are already in hospital with other illnesses which they are unlikely to recover from or are in themselves terminal. In these cases it is unethical to bring them into ITU.

We have already destroyed our society, bankrupted thousands of businesses, denied medical treatment to those that need it, denied children education, sport, fun and companionship, generated huge numbers of unemployed (hidden for now, but not for long) and created a massive mental health crisis through forced imprisonment, all in order to keep 99 year old pleasantly demented old ladies from dying from covid when they will almost certainly die from something else in the very near future. I believe this is at the very, very best, a case of misplaced priorities.

Now, we are vaccinating them with or without their consent as another misplaced priority.

Toby Young always come out too feeble in his response to attacks. We can’t blame him. Let us face this fact. One year ago, Toby Young, journalists,650 MPs, the majority of the population had hardly a clue what a virus was and even less a pandemic virus. The few people in the know were prepared with pandemic flu guidelines even as late as October 2019. Experience from Asiatic flu and Singapore flu outbreak had given a consensus, well established, that there were very few measures available in a normal functioning society i.e. only some SD measure early in the pandemic trying to slow the spread a bit. The main preparedness was to have a capable heath system, which all parties in the UK had reduced by cutting beds 30 % with an increasing elderly population growing 20% and no planning for smaller fever hospitals perhaps using some of the remaining cottage hospitals.

One year later we have MPs, journalists, commentators even in todays update, discussing as a stated fact, that lockdown has an effect of flow of patients, infection rates etc. It has suddenly become a received wisdom, evidence of fact, that lockdown works. The reality is that lockdown is a new experimental concept, done in a totalitarian society, which did not even do it on a national level. This is the biggest untested experiment in the history.

In the current debate, LD proponents should be the ones defending a new untested experiment citing evidence (there are 30 studies against) that it is worth doing, including covering the collateral costs which are hushed down. This new experiment is now the common ground and any opponents is a crank with blood on their hands. They have taken control of the debate and LD sceptics is always on the defence. The first line of defence for Toby Young to his fellow Tory MP would be this, how can a Tory MP ever swallow a complete new Public Health Concept created by the Chinese Communist Party?

I think LD sceptic is a wrong term. It gives the impression that you might accept LD but in modified version, LD lite. This is an unfortunate term which doesn’t suit our cause at all.
Lockdown, quarantine of the healthy, is a monstrous experiment, which have no place in a democratic state. It has enormous escalating collateral costs and more importantly, there is no evidence of having any effect in the long run of infection rate, deaths. On the contrary, it might increase deaths and infection by selecting more transmissible virus to infect the most vulnerable.

He is not jumping on the counter narrative as he does not want to be labelled an anti vaxer. But he never counters this blood on your hands bullshit with the counter that what about all the deaths CAUSED by lockdown and the nhs being closed? All the inhumane treatment of cancer patients. People whose deaths are directly attributed to lack of care from the nhs. The people with serious depression. The poor fuckers who think the only option left to them is suicide. The two million people made unemployed by government policy. All the people dying at home, alone, terrified. The children having their childhood ripped away from them, having to wear a mask, being unable to see or interact with their friends. The death toll for real respiratory deaths caused directly by this virus is fucking miniscule compared to the deaths caused by lockdown.

357571 Ned of the Hills, replying to Ned of the Hills, 3, #432 of 2133 🔗

Here is a surprise.

On 4th January Mr Johnson said, as part of his justification for introducing a national lockdown, that over the previous week the number of deaths was up 20% .

What a twister I thought (an opinion I expressed on these pages) he’s comparing a week were deaths of been over reported with the week over Christmas were they have been under-reported. (i.e reported deaths in the 28th December to 3rd January with the week the 21st December to the 27th December.)

The true figures* would show a different story!

They don’t, not much just 17.5%.

BUT – I checked the daily reported figures, which I assumed Mr. Johnson was basing his claim on – the percentage he could have claimed was 30%!

He was happy to quote the highest daily figure he could for cases which occurred a week earlier rather than the latest available, so why not this higher percentage?

He’s not a chappy who’s known for knowingly underselling owt.

Had he simply misread his script? Saw the numeral ‘2’ rather than ‘3’ ? – a smudge on the paper perhaps?

* Deaths within 28 days of positive test by date of death as shown on https://coronavirus.data.gov.uk/details/deaths

Yesterday I looked at the graph showing case numbers for my city and discovered before lockdown 3 they were going down but now they going up. On the 4th of January we had 975 cases today we have 1520 now if that isn’t proof lockdown doesn’t work then what is ?
I believe since spring when lockdown was first tried the government and people have been fooled into believing lockdown will reduce the transmission and thus save lives. In spring when this was tried they were lucky sunshine which kills most respiratory germs did it’s job. We also got out more benefiting from fresh air which dilutes germs and vitamin D which boosts our immunity. This together with the immunity acquired through being infected brought down numbers so by summer we were basically back to normal. The government and people believed it was lockdown that had saved us so learning the wrong lesson they made mask wearing mandatory. I believe this was a mistake as a few weeks later numbers began increasing again but surprisingly flu declined. It was if the government was doing all the right things to reduce flu while allowing covid to rip through the country. Now I believe if you eliminate covids competitors such as flu evolution tells us covid will become the dominant virus as it as done. Now we told there’s another variant when scientists know all viruses mutate which I believe the government will use to continue the madness while they roll out the vaccine.

357666 ▶▶ Steve Hayes, replying to Derek Toyne, 8, #459 of 2133 🔗

New York, Norway and Scotland have homes with a large number of deaths and infections following the vaccinations. The increase in infections seem to appear after the roll out in December. I don’t believe in coincidences and it is a colder winter than last year, but to suddenly get such an upsurge is worrying. As the third stage initial trials were predominantly of healthy under 55’s is it ethical to be continuing vaccinating the sick elderly.

Alex used to be a BBC journalist but broke away some yes ago and has run a long running anti BBC campaign. With lockdown this year and no work he created his own You tube Channel and posted up to five videos a day plus ran some phone in programmes. I think he had an audience of around 200 k.

Alex is a rough Ring Wing diamond who has repeatedly spoken out against Left Wing woke culture.

His cancelation is not directly Trump related but related to the fact that Social Media are trying to deplatform anyone who has a large number of supporters and who advocates Ring Wing view points.

This action is totally against free speech and must not be tolerated. The Government needs to get involved to stop this unacceptable practise.”

There seems to be a major conceptual problem over vaccination: the point which the Tobys of this world don’t seem to get is that products issued to the public need to be objectively safe and effective rather than just ideologically so. This is a recent assessment of the Pfizer BioNTech and Moderna vaccines by BMJ associate editor Peter Doshi:

https://blogs.bmj.com/bmj/2021/01/04/peter-doshi-pfizer-and-modernas-95-effective-vaccines-we-need-more-details-and-the-raw-data/

The data just isn’t there or has been withheld yet this is good enough for the MHRA and the JCVI. The problem lies with defectively tested products and defective regulation. The products have only been trialled for two months at the longest, so even if the data was credible (which it it isn’t) the companies couldn’t tell you what was going to happen after that point. Then you have to place trust in government agencies when government agencies do not have a good record, haven’t done their job, are in bed with the industry etc,, which is par for the course at the moment. And then gaslight anyone who is injured. Does Toby remember what happened in 2009 with Pandemrix?

And to add to the data issue, on women planning to have children for example, we simply don’t have it. So the marketing has to avoid this uncomfortable fact, for, to get the data, you’ll need to have such individuals to get involved in the trial. It’s not a trial of course, repeat repeat repeat

That’s gone out the window! I can’t think of anything worse right now than being pregnant or having young kids – parents really are at the mercy of the state’s increasingly fascist whims. Children are being psychologically abused by their teachers and the government, and God only knows what that generation will be doing in 20-30 years time when they take hold of the levers of power. Their expectations of normality are being completely perverted, and the social values they are being taught are absolutely repugnant.

Choosing to bring kids into the world is an investment in the future and a pact of trust with your community and society. That now just looks like a fool’s gamble to me.

Mark Lawson talks to John Le Carre

Last night I watched a catch up of this 2008 interview which was broadcast last Saturday night. Le Carre’s real name was David Cornwell and, being a real life ‘spook’, it enabled him to be a brilliant writer of espionage thrillers.

There came a point in the interview when Lawson asked him what his thoughts were on the ‘war on terror’ which, promulgated by Bush and Blair, followed on from the twin towers debacle. Cornwell replied that if there was ever a more ridiculous declaration he had yet to hear it. He then followed that up by saying, with a smirk, ‘what next I wonder, if we’re not careful they’ll be declaring war on influenza’ .

Prophetic words indeed! Cornwell died two years ago so he didn’t live to see the ‘war on influenza’. Pity! If he had lived I’m sure he would have been able to voice his own comments on this most serious, and in 2008 most unbelievable and incomprehensible, turn of events.

The point about Neil Ferguson is not that he has always cocked everything up, but that he behaved differently this time.

With CJD he gave a lowest possible estimate, a highest possible estimate and a middle range. In other words, “What’s the best outcome that could possibly happen?” “And what’s the worst it could be?” “And what do you think will actually happen?” So that’s four figures. From memory (from the posts by Richard Pinch on this site), Ferguson’s estimates for CJD were something like 50, 50,000, 500-2000. It wasn’t that, but it was something like that. And the actual figure was 622, or something. So actually Ferguson did pretty well on CJD.

But with covid he only gave a worst possible estimate. What use is that on its own? Where was his middle range estimate?

That’s my understanding. If I’ve misremembered/got it wrong let me know.

Not sure that’s true. Lots of people focus on the high extreme but this was in a “do nothing – business as usual” scenario. He produced a number of predictions which ranged from ~20k up to 500k.

The real problem was the “calibration” of his model. The scientists thought we were around 10 weeks away from the peak of the spring epidemic when in fact it was already upon us.
This created panic which resulted in the ‘lockdown’ decision.

I now think that the initial strategy of hand-washing, sensible social distancing and working from home if possible (i.e. the Sweden approach) was working well enough but SAGE just didn’t realise it.

357867 ▶▶ PhantomOfLiberty, replying to richmond, 3, #556 of 2133 🔗

The problem with Ferguson is that he is paid as a prospector for the vaccine industry by GAVI and Bill Gates: if he creates a market for them he has done his job.

Ferguson’s Vaccine Impact Modelling Consortium at Imperial College is also funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation as well as the global vaccine alliance, GAVI. Ferguson’s group was said to have received $185 million from the Bill and Melinda Gate Foundation between 2006 and 2018.”

If there was a plague on and masks helped wouldn’t the government be issuing good quailty masks? Surely they wouldn’t leave it to chopped up tshirts and table coth fabric. A cottage, homemade industry to help the nation survive the death.

Yes, fully agree. If the purpose of the masks was to effectively reduce transmission of the virus AND be safe to use then they would have defined standards / regulations before introducing them. The fact that they did not do that means that the purpose of the masks is not about safety and effectiveness at all.

Regulator refuses to approve mass daily Covid testing at English schools ” makes me laugh (more than usual with stuff in the Guardian).

So its not okay to use Lateral Flow Testing in schools because its high false negative rate may lead to kids with Covid mistakenly being allowed to be in school.

But it is okay to use PCR with its high false positive rate so kids who dont have Covid may be mistakenly suspended from school for 10 days.

Because in the first instance the teachers would be ‘in danger’

And in the second its only that the kids miss out on a proper education, do not develop emotionally and socially, are labelled as disease ridden pariahs, and their parents have to risk financial harm and possibly ruin as they have to self-isolate as well and cant do their job because they have to home school.

But with the second at least the teachers are ‘safe’ eh?

30 years ago the NHS had 2.5 times as many beds per capita, infectious disease hospitals and staffing levels.

The problem is the rise over last 20 years of Managerialism. It still goes on even though it has been shown to utterly wrong. One of the tenets of this belief is that a manager (MBA etc) can be parachuted into a specialist unit and get up to speed quickly. Nevermind that the more specialist a situation the more background knowledge you need to run it. No, just here’s a manager or two and it will work.

What happens is managers spawn more managers and management levels as they believe that the solution is always more management.

And so the money you had for contingency goes into the management hole and pockets as remember managers get performance bonuses, employees and key workers often do not.

Those seeking the old knowledge and remnants of pre apocalyptic technology are branded heretics and burnt or hanged.
The cause of the Apocalypse is not specifically determined but a pandemic and subsequent collapse of the economy is the principal suspect .

My husband’s Scottish granddad used to say the drink driving laws were for the boys that couldnae drink and drive. That attitude still prevails in the part of rural France where I live. People tend to resent this curtailment of what they see as innocent pleasure, and are willing to have one or more too many and risk running into the police on the way home. Yet these same people are terrified of the 135 euro fine for breaking the covid rules. For example, a friend who one evening a few years ago saw nothing dangerous in driving with half a bottle of champagne inside her was too scared (of covid? Of the rules?) to celebrate Christmas and New Year as usual with a dozen members of her extended family since there was a six max. limit.

There was a great episode of 5th Gear some years back that looked at drinking against tiredness on driving capability. For sufficient drunkeness, maneouvres are harder but motorway driving is a breeze (provided the windows open so you don’t fall asleep). For tiredness, it doesn’t matter if the window is open, you tend to fall asleep. Manoeuvres are a bit harder but the real danger is motorway driving.

When it comes to risk to others though drink driving would be the one as 70% of deaths are in 30 mph speed zones. Only 5% of casualities occur on motorways.

Why now all of a sudden? Because those behind the scam have realised they can use this narrative to institute additional lockdown and other control measures, or alter existing ones, and by ‘naming’ the variants they give them a relatable identity.

On one hand I’m glad he could have his tests (still awaiting result of MRI scan) done and has not has to wait.

I think there’s also a building base of lockdown-caused deaths which may be a slow but steady excess into next year. Hard to say as deaths wax and wane. The crucial element is not death by attribution of Covid but primary comorbidity.

They are not within “normal” limits. There is an excess. There is also a lag in registrations which means any updates are likely to increase that excess.

‘That changed very quickly within a week or two’

‘….the government in mid-March adopted a policy, executed by NHS England and NHS Improvement, that led to 25,000 patients, including those infected or possibly infected with COVID-19 who had not been tested, being discharged from hospital into care homes between 17 March and 15 April—exponentially increasing the risk of transmission to the very population most at risk of severe illness and death from the disease. With no access to testing, severe shortages of PPE, insufficient staff, and limited guidance, care homes were overwhelmed. Although care home deaths were not even being counted in daily official figures of COVID-19 deaths until 29 April, some 4,300 care home deaths were reported in a single fortnight during this period.’

(Reference deliberately withheld)

Hey, who knows, maybe there was a connection…….

In a sensible context, both hospital admissions and overall cause mortality is most definitely normal for the time of year

Would you at least agree that the data on COVID deaths is very, very opaque?

We are only given information regarding ‘deaths within 28 days of a positive PCR test’. That is a problem for obvious reasons.

Further, ‘excess death’ data is tricky because we have never closed society in this way before.

For example, my doctor’s surgery sent me a text message a little while ago asking me not to contact them unless I have first self diagnosed my issue as urgent or acute. Who knows the effect of this type of policy when replicated across the country? That’s just one potentially harmful policy, there have been many more.

On a population adjusted basis there is, indeed, nothing to see – as ably demonstrated by Ed Conway’s charts on Sky the other day. Moreover, the constant narrative of ‘relative to the 5 year average’ is also misleading. At a bare minimum it should be relative to a 10 year average, because if the last 5 years includes 2 or 3 that were especially low due to insignificant Flu seasons, that will have a significant impact on the average will it not?

100% correct. Add to that I’m not aware of a published medical definition of what constitutes a “wave” anyway that would distinguish something from established seasonality. This wave thing seems to come from a poorly understood Pandemic over 100 years ago. A Pandemic that it is only noticeable in how it differs from this one in almost every aspect. It is a banal truth that we get seasonal “waves” of viruses but a “second wave” has to be independent of that to have any meaning or validity.

357817 Annie, 13, #649 of 2133 🔗

Before proceeding to adduce the conclusive evidence that now exists of the failure of vaccination, a few preliminary misconceptions must be dealt with. One of these is that, as vaccination is a surgical operation to guard against a special disease, medical men can alone judge of its value. But the fact is the very reverse, for several reasons. In the first place, they are interested parties, not merely in a pecuniary sense, but as affecting the prestige of the whole profession. In no other case should we allow interested persons to decide an important matter. Whether iron ships are safer than wooden ones is not decided by ironmasters, or by shipbuilders, but by the experience of sailors and by the statistics of loss. In the administration of medicine or any other remedy for a disease, the conditions are different. The doctor applies the remedy and watches the result, and if he has a larger practice he thereby obtains knowledge and experience which no other persons possess. But in the case of vaccination, and especially in the case of public vaccinators, the doctor does not see the result except by accident. Those who get small-pox go to the hospitals, or are treated by other medical men or may have left the district; and the relation between the vaccination and the attack of small-pox can only be discovered by the accurate registration of all the cases and deaths, with the facts as to vaccination or revaccination. When these facts are accurately registered, to determine what they teach is not the business of a doctor but of a statistician, and there is much evidence to show that doctors are bad statisticians, and have a special faculty for misstating figures.

“Surely, the lavishly taxpayer funded BBC, with hordes of researchers, fact checkers and expensive journalists, must be more accurate in its interpretation of the data than one private individual with a laptop and an internet connection.

That comment from the Doctor analysing NHS data is a sceptical insight into what has bee the case since March : the corps of so-called MSM ‘journalists’ have failed (either negligently or purposely) to find the arse of the data with all their hands.

Let’s be clear, we are now at WAR – not with some invisible (virus) enemy, or some foreign power, but our own State, aided and abetted by the Establishment elites, public health officials, MSM and Big Tech.  Let’s also be clear that this war will not end until we, the people, end it.

If you have any lingering doubts about the ‘crimes against humanity’ that our enemies are perpetrating against their citizens, just view these two videos:

The first of these videos, in particular, exposes the bare-faced lies and misinformation that have been used to (a) overstate the risks of, and mortality from, Covid-19 and incite widespread fear, (b) justify draconian ‘lockdowns’, mandatory masks, and the wholesale destruction of industries, livelihoods and lives, and (c) advocate the injection of millions of our citizens with ‘experimental biological agents’.

It is simply inconceivable that this Government (and curiously  nearly every other Government across the globe), and their army of ‘scientific’ advisers, public health officials, intelligence services, etc, are not aware of the simple truths of the low risks from Covid-19 virus for the vast majority of the population, the availability of safe and effective treatments, and the devastating consequences of their policies for people’s economic, social, physical and mental wellbeing.

Whatever the sinister agenda of our enemies, the time for passive resistance is over; we need to mobilise a people’s resistance movement to wage a more offensive and hard-hitting campaign against our enemies.

I have some ideas for practical acts of resistance that we can each take that I will share shortly…

Regarding the experimental vaccine and the threat of mandates, the video by Dr Simone Gold from the http://www.AFLDS.com is one of the most informative and powerful videos on the subject I have viewed to date, and I urge all LS members to take 15 minutes to listen to it all the way through. The information it contains is also available via sites such as Elsevier Science, Science Direct and PubMed, but they take many hours to search and you need both the right keywords and the knowledge to extract the same information. Even our own UK government website point out the (experimental) vaccine is not known to prevent infection or indeed whether it affects the transmissibility of the virus. Vallance and Whitty know this too, which is why they have warned that having the vaccine programme does NOT mean lockdown restrictions will be lifted. Yet more employers are considering mandating (or have already done so) vaccination for their staff. Some education establishments have already written to staff and parents saying it will be a condition of coming onto site in future that staff and students have agreed to be vaccinated. I know this is true because I have already received an email from a senior manager at my college to this effect. As Dr Gold points out – we must fight back against such a practice NOW, before it is too late and our human rights have been removed by default and we are made guinea pigs in a massive medical experiment.

Over the past year I’ve encountered many ‘swervers’ but this morning I had the pleasure of my first ‘turner’.
Out on my usual,every morning,dog walk in the countryside I was approaching a lone woman on the public footpath around a field.Out of courtesy due to the fact our dog loves people and likes to leap up them in search of fuss I moved on to the ploughed field about twenty feet off the path,I always do this and not because of covid !.As I got closer the woman looked worried,stepped off the path into the snow covered brambles as close to the hedge as she could and turned to face away from me.Absolutely bizarre behaviour !,quite insulting too.She was actually pleasant and said good morning so she narrowly avoided getting a tirade from me,many swervers have not escaped so lightly !.
I have noticed that since Christmas all of the regular dog walkers and runners that I usually encounter on my walk have been absent,being replaced by people I have never seen before,strangely the same thing happened at the time of lockdown 1 in March,I know it’s meaningless but it’s noticeable.

In Norway there have been 23 vaccine related deaths out of 25 000 vaccinations. Roughly 1 in a 1 000. Here over 2.5 million people have been vaccinated with apparently zero vaccine related deaths. So the same vaccine in Norway results in 1 in a 1 000 risk of death and in the United Kingdom results in zero risk. There is something wrong with these facts.

357983 ▶▶ John P, replying to Steve Hayes, 3, #695 of 2133 🔗

I would think it possible that there might be some – given that vaccines are designed to stimulate an immune response – and the very frail and those suffering from pre-existing serious conditions might not be strong enough to cope with that.

I’ve seen no reports, but I doubt that they would be given to immuno-compromised people for that same reason.

I’m personally as doubtful about reports of vaccine related deaths in young and fit people as I am about coronavirus deaths in that same age and health group, but I’m keeping an open mind about it and I am still not planning on having any of these vaccines as they are rolled out.

The Pfizer information document (which I downloaded from the gov.uk website when it was first announced the drug was being given emergency approval for use (quite different thing from a license) says it has not done ANY research on the effects on the reproductive system. It specifically advises women who are pregnant or planning to get pregnant not to have the vaccine. But as Dr Gold points out, if NO research has been done on the effects on the placenta or fertility – not even in animals – how do the manufacturers know any potential negative effects (or adverse events as they are known) are not permanent? Since the MRNA technology has never ever been tried before in relation to vaccines who knows what the short, medium and long-term effects will be on the body? Incredibly dangerous to rush this through for such a mild disease. Some adverse events do not appear until years after administration, which is why there have always been long delays of 10 – 15 years before drugs are licensed. Highly suspicious too that everyone associated with the experimental vaccine is absolved from any litigation process, not just the manufacturers.

When Boris Johnson told parliament that seventy percent of all transmission was asymptomatic, he did not refer to evidence, but rather relied on the rhetorical flourish “as you all know.”

To infect one person in a group of 3,410, the asymptomatic group had to have close contact with 305 other people. So that’s a secondary transmission rate for asymptomatic people of 1:305.

Part of the rationale for mass testing is that it will identify asymptomatic carriers and they will be forced to self-isolate for 14 days, thereby reducing the risk that they’ll infect anyone. But according to the WHO, there’s very little evidence that asymptomatic carriers can transmit the disease. At a WHO press conference on June 8th , Dr Maria Van Kerkhove, the WHO’s technical lead on COVID-19, said:

We have a number of reports from countries who are doing very detailed contact tracing. They’re following asymptomatic cases, they’re following contacts and they’re not finding secondary transmission onward. It’s very rare and much of that is not published in the literature.

Good ‘sceptics’ again today, I thought. Picked up on the excellent Simone Gold speech on YT and the Canadian guy on Twitter who managed to predict the whole bloody scenario almost perfectly (as if it was some kind of script, who would have thought it?). Great stuff, plus accurate news from Norway – vaccine reactions. The ‘legal eagle’ didn’t really say much that we did not already knew, did he? What about the realistic prospects for suing re ‘wrongful arrest’ or ‘wrongful harassment’ or ’emotional distress’? That would have been more interesting.

Lawsuits against the perpetrators and assistants of the fake Covid-19 pandemic are developing nicely. This is an extract from a newsletter by Reiner Fuellmich:

“…Lawsuit to declare void vaccine approval; constitutional complaint by a German judge against the measures of a Federal Government which has practically been kidnapped by the Davos Clique – measures which are destroying democracy and the rule of law.

1. Parallel to all these efforts, the Italian lawyer Dr. Renate Holzeisen is working with us and experts on a lawsuit against the EU Commission to have its approval of vaccines declared null & void – vaccines which are de facto untested and highly dangerous – in the case of the manufacturers Bioentech/Pfizer and Moderna, these are prohibited genetic experiments on humans. Meanwhile, the superbly versed and hard-hitting anti-Mafia public prosecutors are investigating the WHO and its Italian backers. In France work is progressing on a complaint to the Court for Human Rights.

2. A German judge (who we are in contact with) has submitted a constitutional complaint against the blanket measures of the Federal Government, these measures undermining democracy and the rule of law; the hope here is that – notwithstanding all concrete appearances – the head of the Constitutional Court has retained his independence. We have published these constitutional complaints on our news website and they can be submitted by anyone…”

Also, could the families of those who have died of treatable cancers during lockdown bring charges of corporate manslaughter against the NHS Trusts responsible? It seems to me that if basic infection control measures had been employed all of these people could and should have been treated.

WHO Changes Definition of Herd Immunity

  • Herd immunity occurs when enough people acquire immunity to an infectious disease such that it can no longer spread widely in the community
  • WHO’s definition of herd immunity long reflected this, but in October 2020 it quietly revised this concept in an Orwellian move that totally removes natural infection from the equation
  • Immunity developed through previous infection is the way it has worked since humans have been alive: Your immune system isn’t designed to get vaccines; it’s designed to work in response to exposure to an infectious agent
  • This perversion of science implies that the only way to achieve herd immunity is via vaccination, which is blatantly untrue
  • It’s all part of the Great Reset: The rollout of widespread COVID-19 vaccination coupled with tracking and tracing of COVID-19 test results and vaccination status are setting the stage for biometric surveillance and additional tracking and tracing

Violating Science, WHO Changes the Meaning of Herd Immunity

This perversion of science implies that the only way to achieve herd immunity is via vaccination, which is blatantly untrue. The startling implications for society, however, are that by putting out this false information, they’re attempting to change our perception of what’s true and not true, leaving people believing that they must artificially manipulate their immune systems as the only way to stay safe from infectious disease.

.  Naturally Acquired Immunity Is Longer Lasting .

Wherever you live in the world, it’s likely that your mainstream narrative is filled with messaging crafted to engender stupefying fear and hence, create maximum compliance. It doesn’t seem to matter if the information broadcast is factually correct or not as these channels seem to be invisible to the ‘fact checkers’.

Our lead story deals with one such area that has been completely hijacked of late – that of herd immunity. Scientific and medical free speech has never been so threatened in the developed world. Please read, digest and share this information widely as herd immunity is exactly what we need to free ourselves from house arrest, and, despite what you’re hearing, it can most definitely develop naturally.

Is there more than one path to herd immunity?

As the virus becomes more ubiquitous, it will be ever easier to apportion deaths to SARS-CoV-2. The focus on case rates will allow the pandemic to exist to eternity as low prevalence increases the rate of false positives in PCR and other molecular tests.

Hi Everyone,

I have taken time off from these pages but have been active recruiting people to the cause. I had a very busy and social Christmas which segued nicely into New Year. We had a fireworks party which was visited by the local constabulary who were very understanding and left after a short conversation.They had probably received a complaint as we are off the beaten track and difficult to find. In the face of it everything up our way is very compliant but if you dig a little deeper you find a lot of deep scepticism. Our local resistance group includes GP’s and rumours of police joining us. Things are not what they seem. So you all take heart. And I hear rumours that things might be about to kick off in the US.

Astonishing COVID-19 Testing Fraud Revealed
Fatal Errors Found in Paper on Which PCR Testing Is Based

November 30, 2020, a team of 22 international scientists published a review challenging the scientific paper on PCR testing for SARS-CoV-2 written by Christian Drosten, Ph.D., and Victor Corman. The Corman-Drosten paper was quickly accepted by the WHO and the workflow described therein was adopted as the standard across the world.

According to Reiner Fuellmich, founding member of the German Corona Extra-Parliamentary Inquiry Committee (Außerparlamentarischer Corona Untersuchungsausschuss, or ACU), Drosten is a key culprit in the COVID-19 pandemic hoax.

The scientists demand the Corman-Drosten paper be retracted due to “fatal errors,” one of which is the fact that it was written (and the test itself developed) before any viral isolate was available. All they used was the genetic sequence published online by Chinese scientists in January 2020.

The fact that the paper was published a mere 24 hours after it was submitted also suggests it didn’t even undergo peer review. In an Undercover DC interview, Kevin Corbett, Ph.D., one of the 22 scientists who are now demanding the paper’s retraction, stated:

See attachment below

The critique against PCR testing is further strengthened by a November 20, 2020, study in Nature Communications, which found no viable virus in PCR-positive cases at all. The study evaluated data from 9,865,404 residents of Wuhan, China, who had undergone PCR testing between May 14 and June 1, 2020.

A total of 300 tested positive but had no symptoms. Of the 34,424 people with a history of COVID-19, 107 tested positive a second time. Yet, when they did virus cultures on these 407 individuals who had tested positive (either for the first or second time), no live virus was found in any of them!

She has actually sent a recorded delivery letter and quoted the words on my blackboard and bollocked me for it.

She probably goes a bit OTT on what the ‘vaccines’ being promoted today can do but otherwise seems very plausible.

Don’t dignify the Pfizer or Moderna products with the name ‘vaccine’. They’re a form of genetic therapy and should have gone through the normal drugs approval process.

There are quite a few conventional vaccines under development for SARS CoV 2. They bear at least some relation to the original concept of a vaccine, e.g. the one that protected us against smallpox.

I’ve given this some thought over time how we can succeed and stop this madness without giving the elite the ultimate goal of destroying everything from our freedoms to SME’s going bust.

I know believe I understanding what could be the end game for this, and if you haven’t watched this then you must do so…I think that is the best explanation behind all of this.

https://happen.network/

What’s against us

  • We know this isn’t about the virus.
  • We know know they’ve use FEAR and Emotion to control the people
  • We know most mainstream and ALL social media are complicit behind this fraud.
  • We know that PCR testing is being used to continue the narrative.
  • Lockdowns
  • We know this is a global campaign, all local/national governments are merely puppets in this game.
  • WE know that whatever the end-game is won’t be good for the majority of mankind.
  • We know all forms of protest and free speech is being oppressed both violently and technically.

What we know that can help us

  • We know facts and figures and medical studies do nothing to change the narrative
  • We know the virus isn’t that deadly so destroying the fear can be achieved.
  • We know there’s cheap, well used, effective treatments. (HCQ, Ivermectin, Zink Vit c&D)
  • We know that PCR testing produces lots of false positives
  • We know lockdowns do nothing other than kill people and destroy lives and bussinesses.
  • We know the vaccine is experimental is giving false hope
  • We know lockdows down’t work

So how do we use all of the above to fight back.

  • Fear, emotion and hope are all strong human traits we have to take advantage of.

Fear

  • We have to use fear to scare people about the experimenta l vaccine. Share stories of death and injury caused by the experimental vaccine. Tell people animal experiments always fail with this.
  • Always use the word experimental when talking about the vaccine. (That’s what it is) It’s a form of Neuro-Linguistic Programming that will place seeds of doubt’s in those who hear that word.
  • Tell people these vaccines are designed to cull the human race .
  • Scare people they will lose everything regardless if lockdowns continue the damage has been done. Their pensions they’ve worked all their lives for will be raided. Savings will be blocked . You will lose your home when you lose your job.
  • There won’t be any money left for the NHS, and law and order.
  • Tell people the new Coronovirus health act will force people to be locked up either if they suspect you are ill.
  • Tell people that their facemasks are making them ill , There’s a massive rise in fungal and fibroid pneumonia being caused by face masks. Exaggerate, remember facts and stats count for nothing in this game.
  • Stage fake fainting moments in public have a friend near by who will help you and make sure people around hear that the facemask is causing this. Do this in busy public places like large supermarkets by the front entrance. We have to de-normalised facemask wearing.
  • Food supplies will be hit. Tell people there’s a whole section in the Coronovirus health act about the food supply chain . They are worried this will collapse . You will starve to death if this continues much longer. Can you feed you and your family when there’s no food in the shops and what little there is will be sky high prices.
  • Hyper inflation. Shipping costs have gone up 500% from china. Speak to any supplyer of goods, and they will tell you all the same thing. All prices will sky rocket once existing supplies have run dry. So many people taking pay cuts or are on 80% salary.

Anger

  • Be fucking angry, everything you have ever lived for has been taken away. Don’t be afraid to show your anger. Let people know that these lockdowns are affecting you and millions of other people!
  • Be angry with your local goverment and MP. Tell them they have blood on their hands, send them repeated facts about HCQ and Ivermectin and tell them that because they are not allowing the use of these cheap effective treatments that they have blood on their hands.
  • Flood the BBC with complaints that they are letting the British people down by not talking about cheap effective treatments out there. The BBC keep telling us people are dying so why they doing their bit to help stop the deaths. They have blood on their hands.
  • Make people aware of these treatments and be angry about them not being used. Tell them they are widely used in Africa and India and their death rates are so much lower than here.
  • Be angry with the NHS for being a micky mouse service that killed all the old people. they have blood on their hands as well.

Emotion and hope to follow on another post.

Cheers,

358133 ▶▶ Andrew K, replying to Andrew K, 6, #892 of 2133 🔗

Emotion

  • Use this human trait well. Tell people that them wanting lockdown will kill millions. Tell them that millions of people are dying right now as a direct result of lockdown.
  • Tell people to look right n the eye of somebody whose teenage child has committed suicide because of lockdown and justify to them that lockdown is right.
  • We need a rallying cry. A resistance song that is catchy and powerful. Much like the French national anthem. Music involks power emotions in people. Does anybody know any musicians/songwirtters.

HOPE

  • People need something to give them hope. Tell them countries with no lockdown are no back to normal. Belarus, Tanzania, Florida.
  • Tell people that this doesn’t kill that many people it’s got a very low IFR.
  • Tell people there are cheap effective treatments so no need for vaccine.

OK I’m tied after typing all that. You get my drift.. use the four human emotions and the knowledge we know to fight this battle you can add stuff to the list. we need this action to take hold and grow because I’ll be dammed to live as a slave to the rich elite.

Maybe turn it on its head, lockdowns are the reaction to an economic threat, not a biological threat.

Maybe lockdown is an economic freeze on the economy, throttling the flow of money and information while currency/economic reset takes place.

If that’s true we will be locked down using any excuse under the sun until the new mechanisms are in place. Meanwhile wealth transfer by the 1% pushes on in earnest, e.g. Gates buys farmlands etc, all running to safe havens before the deluge of inflation.

False testing for arbitrary definitions set by financial and corporate hegemony means that falsely interpreted stats keep the mind framed in narrative deceit.
This is operating as a death cult or death wish via a denial of truth set as a means for the reversal or inversion of thought, and is pervasive as the intent to evade Disclosure at all and any cost – as damage control or power struggle
The ‘House of Cards’ is a systemic corruption that by its nature (see para above) projects itself away and onto others, so as to feed on the manipulation of others as means of support, and can allow no real process of communication or relationship to know itself by sharing.

Humankind may now seem to be splitting into ‘different evolutionary forks’ according to psychic-emotional readiness for Disclosure.

The tern Disclosure is associated with a hidden ‘Alien agenda’. But its underlying meaning is of a kind with Revelation and Apocalypse – as the drawing aside of the curtain to reveal what was hidden and still seeks to hide in plain sight.

Alienation from our Self – can be called cognitive dissonance. Or those who know not what they do, for they are completely lost from who and what, in truth, they are. Such is the power of a mind set against itself.
Fear can split the mind. Or rather the denial and recoil from overwhelm of conflict operates as a split mind as a masking over. And thus sets the mind in the role of ‘making you safe’ as a psychic entity set over and apart from relational being, and yet subject to the measure of its own giving.

In a world where computer modelling is replacing empirical science – and not just in virology and epidemiology – we might heed ‘garbage in; garbage out’ as the basis to question all and any INPUTS to the result of such thinking or indeed computer assisted ‘thinking’.

Mainstream garbage is not just a filtered distortion of truth, but is an active undermining and attack on honesty as the means for uncovering what truly works, serves and aligns a true fulfilment. The only ‘post-truth’ is the ritual Crucifixion of demonising it and nailing it up as Terror Threat to ‘incentivise compliance’ by which to set the mind in possession of the means to manufacture ‘truths’ to suit its underlying compulsions by which a true desire for love and life is perverted to serve private gratifications acted out upon the body and the bodies of others and world.

An addiction allows no free awareness or choice until a ‘bottoming out’ in which the capacity to hide is lost to a recognition of no longer WANTING the heavy and isolating or ‘alienating’ burden of such a false and meaningless self-judgement which inevitably and automatically projects out to our relationships as something to get from or get away from – rather than be the unfolding of.

I apologise for the number of questions but when draconian restrictions are placed which make things we take for granted such as having visitors in our home illegal, elected representatives have a duty to explain the justifications for these restrictions. These restrictions wouldn’t be out of place in North Korea.

1) The justification used for lockdown is the entire population must be quarantined and if this was not in place, people would infect each other, cause deaths and put the NHS under strain. Where is the evidence to support this assertion? If someone catches covid has any evidence been presented if people with covid have infected those they have been in close contact and fallen ill? As can be seen from the link below studies have shown people who live with covid victims have not fallen ill.

Risk of catching coronavirus from a family member you live with is just 16.6% | Daily Mail Online

Quarantining healthy people has never been done in a pandemic. The justification for quarantining healthy people is that healthy asymptomatic people can spread the illness. Being healthy and with no symptoms means you don’t have the disease. How do you spread a disease you don’t have? If asymptomatic transmission occurs, why as per appendix the NHS couldn’t answer a single question re asymptomatic transmission. Do you have access to any evidence which supports asymptomatic transmission and can you answer any of my questions in the FOI request? As per the link below, the evidence suggest the Chinese government lied about asymptomatic transmission. What are your views on the points made in the link below about the role of the Chinese government in making governments adopt lockdowns?

The Chinese Communist Party’s Global Lockdown Fraud | by The CCP’s Global Lockdown Fraud | Jan, 2021 | Medium

2) A justification for lockdown is the rise in cases which are the results of positive tests. I would like to know where these tests are being carried out. As can be seen from appendix A, a request was sent to the NHS to ask where positive tests are being carried out which they couldn’t answer and as requested I sent my request to the Department of Health and Social Care on the 23rd of November to which I have not received a response. As can be seen on the linked Facebook page and comments on the lockdown sceptics website, test centres have been noted to be empty which raises the question where positive test results are coming from. How can an increase in cases be used to justify draconian lockdowns when the authorities can’t answer a basic question such as where positive test results are coming from?

3) To introduce such draconian legislation we have seen since March, you would expect to see clear evidence of a deadly pandemic which justifies such measures. In my past ten months I have not seen people dying in droves, large numbers surviving but becoming severely ill or even people with mild symptoms such as coughing. I constantly hear from people they don’t know anyone with covid. Everyone around me is perfectly healthy. Without media coverage, draconian laws, government announcements and covid posters everywhere, you wouldn’t notice we were in a pandemic. How can draconian laws be justified when there is no visible evidence we are in a pandemic?

4) Flu is an infectious disease which puts the NHS under strain every winter. It has never been suggested we put the entire population under house arrest, destroy our civil liberties, criminalise perfectly normal activities such as seeing friends and family, shut down our economy and take people’s livelihoods away to prevent further flu infections and prevent the NHS being put under strain. What makes covid different to justify such an extreme response?

5) As can be seen from appendix A, I have sent numerous FOI request which either have not responded to my questions or were unable to answer my questions. Why should the population be subject to extremely draconian restrictions which has turned Wales and other parts of the UK into an open prison when the government can’t provide evidence to justify these restrictions?

With regards

Appendix A

Lockdown justification: Cases are rising and restrictions are necessary to prevent further infections.

Result of FOI request: The following E mail was sent to the NHS to establish were cases were coming from. The NHS sent a reply saying this was not the responsibility of the NHS but the Department of Health and Social Care. The E mail was sent to the Department of Health and Social Care on the 23 rd of November and an acknowledgement of the query was received on the same day but no response has been received to my query.

I would like to make a freedom of information request on two subjects.

Subject 1

As per the link from facebook, it is mentioned that a covid test centre is empty. I raised the issue of a empty testing sites on a site called lockdown skeptics and the below are the responses I received. The justification used for draconian regulations is that cases are going up but empty test sites raises the issue where positive test results are coming from if test centres are empty. Can you provide the following information for positive tests results for coronavirus which were done from the 1 st of September until the 23 rd of October throughout the whole of the UK

In which centres were these tests carried out

How many attended each day in the period I requested.

How many positive results were obtained each day.

I was reading a post on an anti lockdown Facebook site and it was pointed out by the author they had been past Covid test sites which were empty and the question was raised where cases are coming from if testing sites are empty. Have you been past testing sites and found them empty. Do you think the government is lying about positive test cases.

I passed within 10 metres of the drive-in testing station at Bidston Moss in Merseyside, yesterday. You know, the place where the cases are allegedly going through the roof.

Subject 2

As per the videos from youtube there have been cases where people where told they have tested positive without being tested.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DZFcH-RUjmM&t=2s

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lrqTeWGuRXg

Can the following questions be answered.

1) Are people who were told they tested positive without being tested included in positive test statistics

2) Since the beginning of lockdown in March, are there statistics available on the number of those who were classed as testing positive without being tested.

Lockdown justification: Asymptomatic people can spread coronavirus which is why lockdown rules must apply to everyone.

Result of FOI request: The E mail below was sent to the NHS and as can be seen the NHS couldn’t answer a single question.

“I would like to make a freedom of information request regarding the subject of asymptomatic transmission. Could the following questions be answered :-

* Has any research been carried out by the government into asymptomatic transmission.

* If research has been carried out into asymptomatic transmission, can the following be answered

How do asymptomatic carriers spread the disease as unlike symptomatic carriers they will not cough or sneeze.

How long do asymptomatic carriers stay infectious.

Are asymptomatic less or just as infectious as symptomatic carriers.

* Have there been documented instances of people who tested positive but had no symptoms and those around them fell I’ll.

* Is the possibility of healthy asymptomatic people spreading coronavirus a major factor in placing draconian lockdown laws on the entire healthy population.

* If there is no evidence of asymptomatic transmission, would the government still feel draconian lockdowns which apply to whole population would be justified.”

Lockdown justification: covid is highly infectious. If people with covid interacted with others they would infect them.

Result of FOI request: The E mail below was sent to the NHS and they were unable to answer my questions and I was told to contact Public Health England

Response from assembly member

Dear Mr

Thank you for your email with concerns about Covid-19 restrictions.

I generally support the laws and restrictions that have been put in place in Wales to reduce the spread of the virus, to protect our communities and to prevent our NHS services being overburdened. In Arfon we have seen relatively low numbers of cases but, of course, each case is a life affected and each death is a tragedy, no matter that we have seen lower numbers here than other parts of the country. I am aware of the impact of the restrictions on constituents’ day-to-day lives and appreciate the difficulties caused by lockdowns, but I do believe that restrictions are needed for the time being.

To respond to your questions:

1.      The Technical Advisory Cell provides the Welsh Government with information to aid with its decision-making. Details here: https://gov.wales/strategy-evidence-coronavirus&nbsp ;

I understand that not everyone who gets the virus becomes seriously ill but the potential for them to infect others, who may fall seriously ill, is high, especially with the new highly-transmissible variants of the virus that we are now seeing emerge.

The long-term effects of Covid-19 are also not yet clear and I believe that research is being undertaken into ‘Long Covid’ and myriad life-long health problems that are potentially caused by the virus. Not enough is currently known about asymptomatic transmission and so I feel that erring on the side of caution, rather than taking risks, is the best approach to reducing the impact of the virus on the population.

I am unable to provide responses to the FOI requests you have made as I do not hold the information you are asking for.

2.      Information on the test and trace programme in Wales can be found here: https://gov.wales/test-trace-protect-your-questions&nbsp ;

There have been 176,056 confirmed cases of Covid-19 in Wales as of 13th January 2021. That’s an increase of around 1,700 in a week. Information on positive cases per health board area and local authority can be found here: https://public.tableau.com/profile/public.health.wales.health.protection#!/vizhome/RapidCOVID-19virology-Public/Headlinesummary

3.      There have been 4,117 deaths in Wales due to Covid-19. While some people like yourself have been lucky to not know anyone who has had the virus, I personally know of many who have been affected and believe this to be the case for the majority of people in Wales.

4.      Flu is an entirely different virus and I don’t believe that comparisons with Covid-19 are helpful.

5.      If you have not received responses to your FOI requests, I can only suggest that you re-submit them to the appropriate bodies. I don’t agree that Wales has been turned into “North Korea” or an “open prison” due to the steps that have been taken to minimise the spread and impact of Covid-19. As mentioned above, I know that the restrictions cause difficulties for many of my constituents but I support the action being taken to protect lives.

I hope that this information is of use to you.

Yours sincerely,

What a load of bullshit – I received a similar response from my MP, despite quoting statistics and enclosing peer reviewed scientific articles. Sent my already high blood pressure into the red zone. So the response you received is not surprising. Either the majority of government ministers are too lazy to do their own independent research, or they too have been brainwashed, or they have their own agenda(s) which has nothing to do with wanting to protect their constituents.

Its worth repeating time and again, this is just a TESTademic. Without PCR tests there would not be a shortage of hospital staff, patient admission would be less and discharges would be higher.

It’s the same when politicians and their advisers have been telling us that this or that variant has been spreading quicker than previous variants. How do they know?

Article on mental health is quite good.

Yet the BBC podcast was typical in failing to see the wood for the trees. The argument was that inequality is exacerbated by Covid, and that mental health support should expand.

Probably posted before, it’s long, but worth listening to. This is without doubt my favourite doctor. Prof John Lee gets second place.
Interestingly, near the end Dr Kendrick says ” we have lost the war”. He says that we now have to focus on how to combat the next one. What with that and the earlier posts about the vaccine passports etc, I feel rather despondent, so say the least.

On a different note, I posted about my partner’s uncle in hospital, having acquired covid during the admission “despite” his vaccine before Xmas. I have never met this man, so excuse the detachment, but I am wondering what will happen to him when he has his second vaccination.

A little late on display today for various reasons (my second post will explain).

First off my twice weekly trip to Tesco (which probably counts as the first ‘exercise’ of the day). Not quite sure what the new mask situation would be I decided to don a mask myself. I am marginally exempt so decided to put up with misted glasses and tangled hearing aids for a few minutes. New notices outside which I see clearly say ‘visit government website for details of exemptions’ so management itself is now clearly aware of them. Their previous notices said nothing about them. No hassle at the door, in fact nobody there, but I noticed on my way out that my friendly, mask hating, lady was on duty so wouldn’t have had issues. Shopping done, everything I wanted. Another issue of masks noted – they interfere with your peripheral vision, I kept bumping into things and people, whoops! Lady on the till, another one I have got to know well in the years I have shopped there, was moaning her glasses were steaming up! So that was the first half hour of the day spent.

358305 ▶▶ davews, replying to davews, 7, #1038 of 2133 🔗

Then for problems. Yesterday a chap knocked at the door and asked if I wanted my gutters and facias cleaned, claimed to be part of the team re-roofing the flats at the end of the road. I don’t think he was, but silly me decided on that statement to agree but thought his ‘cut down’ price was a bit much. Having had a night’s sleep I had decided I would send him on his way this morning but he appeared with a young girl who it seems was a cleaner at the local university (no university in Bracknell) so having reduced his price I let them in and probably breached the covid rules. Guess what, up the ladder he found a missing tile and a few other issues with the guttering, he said he would be back shortly after getting some bits (but didn’t tell me how much). Classic white man trick. All he and the girl had done by then was wiped my guttering and facia down with cleaner, with both of them wandering in my garden with me ignoring anything like social distancing – though they did have (dirty) masks on…. He left a brochure with pretty pictures and a website address on the front which when I checked didn’t even exist and although mentioned on the web no reviews at all. Convinced of this, when he returned I politely confronted him and he lost it, loud swear words filled my kitchen. I tried to keep calm and largely did though he accused me of shouting! Anyway, having apparently ordered my bits I could only get rid of them (girl visibly upset) by giving him rather more cash than I would have liked, now left still with a missing tile and other things which my building mate will arrange somebody to sort out. Not a good morning, beware of men in white vans! I should have used the covid no entry excuse right at the start.

I looked up that domain “tradewisepropertysolutionsltd.co.uk” in WHOIS and it was registered through “godaddy.com”, so I phoned them and the domain registration will expire in July 2021.

I spoke to a chap in technical support at GoDaddy, who said they have registration details but you, or probably the police, would need to contact “legal@godaddy.com” if the domain name is being used to facilitate crime.

I really think it might be worth talking to the police or possibly local council as it might be a “trading” issue.

358516 ▶▶▶▶▶▶ davews, replying to dhid, #1045 of 2133 🔗

Thanks for doing that, I had worked out that although there was a domain there was no website associated with it. It may well be that they took the website down due to lockdown (I found a pub recently that had done the same, turned up at pub and found it closed). But if that is so why was he claiming he had something to do with them. I am not going to chase it at the moment though, just teach myself a lesson.

I would strongly suggest that you do report it to your local council Trading Standards as they may be known to them.

I made the mistake of paying a man and his ‘grandson’ (?) to prune a tree for me in 2019. I suspect I was ripped off, although thankfully not excessively so, and the tree has since died (!). They had leaflets which only had a mobile number on and a website address. Out of interest I subsequently looked up the web address and, not surprisingly, nothing came up. But the leaflet said in prominent lettering “14 days cooling off period”, presumably because it sounded a good phrase to use to give the impression of their legitimacy. Maybe it’s me but I can’t for the life of me see how that is supposed to work in practice, being that as soon as you say you’d like them to do the work it’s invariably convenient for them to do it there and then!

Grant Shapps was doing the press rounds this morning and basically told people not to bother booking holidays this summer.

The comment sections under the story are quite amusing. There are a lot of “get f’d Shapps” as you’d expect, but also a lot of people who genuinely thought this would be over in March, with all restrictions gone following vaccinations. That sense of dawning realisation is almost palpable.

You can tell the government is extremely nervous at the moment. I think they know what will happen when they finally tell the lockdown zealots, “erm, actually guys, this is going to be your future from now on, vaccination or not”. It’s not going to be pretty….

The studies weren’t even designed to demonstrate these agents prevent transmission. And with an infection fatality rate of .26% it will be very difficult to demonstrate that the treatment vastly reduces death since the effect would be so small. There is one theory that once Biden is inaugurated, mandates masks for 100 days, and then reduces the PCR cycle threshold way down, he’ll end the casedemic, declare victory, and credit masks and the “vaccine.” It’s just a theory…

Like so many people in this country, we did not get a holiday last year. The 2021 holiday season will soon be upon us and being 74 & 73 years-old Mrs Tarfu and I will both soon be offered the vaccine, or should I say the “ experimental biological agent ”.

I have spent many hours studying the vaccine by reading and watching videos. There is no doubt in my mind that it is not “safe and effective”. Mrs Tarfu, on the other hand gets her information solely from the Daily Mail. She cannot wait for the vaccine and would happily take any and all vaccines on offer. No argument – no discussion needed, “it’s 95% efficient”. The brainwashing is total and complete.

Today, the Mail reports that people are booking holidays in the belief that there will be sufficient relaxation of restrictions for flights to go ahead during the summer months. This situation will almost certainly require evidence of vaccination and/or a Negative COVID Test results prior to travelling (both here in the UK and in Spain no doubt). All this has been explained but falls on deaf ears.

All of this is adding to the sense of despair and I feel I have no option but to concede defeat and “take the jab”, otherwise this household will be in permanent discord.

Why have I bothered to write this? I just wonder to what extent this situation is being playing out in other households …..

It’s a balance of risks. There are fewer dying from the vaccine than there are dying from the virus. That’s how you assess the situation.

The vaccine is a somewhat more safe than catching the virus. Because that’s what the population statistics clearly show. Both have a very small risk of causing serious harm. The older you are, the higher the risk.

The excessive fear of the vaccine shown by some is exactly the same problem as the excessive fear of the virus shown by the masked and the lockdown fans. Both are a case of emotion over reason, and an inability to assess risk properly based on the figures.

Neither taking the vaccine, nor suffering the virus is risk free. There are no risk free options any more.

358395 ▶▶▶ Will, replying to Lucan Grey, 10, #1088 of 2133 🔗

As I was explaining to a friend the other day, who is pushing 80, and posted some jab propaganda on FB, the risk reward for you makes the vaccines attractive. For me, under 50, with no comorbidities and with a daughter who has suffered a catastrophic, life changing and incurable vaccine injury I will need to see a feck of a lot more evidence before I will be getting the vaccine.

358434 ▶▶▶▶ Rowan, replying to Will, 4, #1089 of 2133 🔗

The risk reward isn’t established for the over eighties, as the vaccine seems be killing some of them in fairly short order.

There is also no evidence that the vaccines prevent transmission of Covid-19 or that they save lives. Vaccines generally work less well on the old and frail and is another factor to be taken into account.

358440 ▶▶▶▶ Lockdown_Lunacy, replying to Will, 5, #1090 of 2133 🔗

Yes absolutely. Fortunately I don’t know anybody who has suffered a vaccine injury, but at 28 years old with no health problems, from a health perspective it currently fails the risk/reward test for me.

It is known that COVID has almost zero chance of harming me. It is unknown whether or not the vaccine could in the medium to long term.

If my risk category changes for some reason, I can opt for the vaccine at any time. I cannot ‘un-vaccinate’.

358405 ▶▶▶ Lisa (formerly) from Toronto, replying to Lucan Grey, 10, #1091 of 2133 🔗

Vaccine side effects can take years to make themselves known. People don’t necessarily drop dead on the way back home from getting the jab, though these experimental biological treatments are already at least 50x more likely to cause an adverse reaction than the flu vaccine and it’s just early days. Can you show me the long-term data with respect to the safety of this experimental biological intervention? Oh yeah, you can’t because there is no long-term safety data and it won’t be available for at least two years. And the data from the minimal animal studies conducted haven’t been made available either. For most people — 99%+ — the experimental treatment is higher risk than Covid.

358427 ▶▶▶▶ Victoria, replying to Lisa (formerly) from Toronto, 6, #1092 of 2133 🔗

The vaccine is a somewhat more safe than catching the virus. Because that’s what the population statistics clearly show. Both have a very small risk of causing serious harm. The older you are, the higher the risk.

Where did you get that gem? Is it little more than wishful thinking on your part?

There is no evidence whatsoever, that the vaccines will prevent the transmission of Covid-19 and no evidence at all that the vaccines will save any lives.

There is also no evidence about what will happen in the medium and long term, as trials have only just begun, with joe public unwittingly signing up as the guinea pigs.

If you fancy a shot in the dark, then go for it, but stop spreading half-baked nonsense, that has the putrid smell of 77th Brigade about it.

358402 ▶▶ ThomasT, replying to tarfu, 13, #1095 of 2133 🔗

Whilst I am younger, its similar in my household. Wife eagerly watches every Boris broadcast, and has been totally brainwashed. I hear her speaking to her friends and when they hear so & so has had the vaccine they say “how fantastic” and blame those who flout lockdowns and masks as being the problem.

Her parents and my parents have all said they will get the vaccine without any hesitation. Im sure if you could pay privately for it, her parents would be at the front of the queue. All in the mis-guided idea if they did “everything will go back to normal”. When I started to question things mid last year my wife actually burst into tears and said “i never thought you would be a conspiracy theorist, if i had known i wouldnt have married you”, as if I had just confessed to being some sort of child murderer. I was shocked!

Whilst I will not be having the vaccine the wife did guilt me into having the flu vaccine against my better judgement last year. “if you dont you will be 35% MORE likely to get covid & die, you dont want to leave the children with no father…..”. So I wouldnt put it past her to try the same again, but I will say no this time.

Its certainly put a big strain on the relationship.

MR T, you have my sympathies (from a 72 yr old with no co-morbidities). We were lucky enough to return from a Far East holiday in february last year, just before the solids hit the air-conditioning re’ CV-19. Alas, I would not like to predict when our next overseas jaunt is to be, nor if it will ever take place at all. Me and ‘er indoors will refuse the ‘biological agent’ currently under trial for at least a couple of years in order to try and quantify/qualify any possible side effects. That being so, we won’t qualify for the mooted “vaccination passport” likely to be insisted upon by the World’s airlines (beginning with Quantas).
I have signed the petition with http://www.Medicaldiscrimination,org to register my (our) disapproval of such totalitarian tripe. I fear we may be grounded for quite some time.

I’m sorry to hear that Tarfu, I can’t imagine how difficult that must be. I suppose you have shown her the websites and videos about the side effects and the lack of effectiveness of the vaccine. I sent a few to my parents (slightly older than your good self) who were also thinking of taking it, they agreed to look at them before making a decision but they have been brainwashed by the media and my zealot brother who has terrified them of catching covid – so I’m not optimistic. I’m lucky my partner is also a total sceptic, unfortunately he’s a few thousand miles away in Spain and thanks to this mess I can’t get to join him.

The authorities have looked more closely at 13 deaths following vaccination

News: The Norwegian Medicines Agency has assessed 13 deaths that may have been related to the coronary vaccine. Common to those who died is that they were old and frail.

NTB-Birgitte Iversen and Bibiana Piene
Published: January 14, 2021

More than 25,000 Norwegians have been vaccinated with the first dose of the coronary vaccine from Pfizer and Biontech since Christmas. On Friday, the first dose of the new Moderna vaccine will be given.

So far, the Norwegian Medicines Agency has assessed 29 adverse reaction reports after the covid-19 vaccination. 13 of these had a fatal outcome, shows a new report from the Norwegian Medicines Agency.

A total of 23 deaths have been reported in connection with vaccination, but so far only 13 of these have been assessed. The other deaths are under treatment. Common side effects may have contributed to a serious course in frail elderly people, the Norwegian Medicines Agency reports.

Changes vaccine advice
All the deaths have occurred in frail, old patients in nursing homes. All are over 80 years old and some of them over 90, according to NRK.

– The reports may indicate that common side effects from mRNA vaccines, such as fever and nausea, may have led to deaths in some frail patients, says chief physician Sigurd Hortemo in the Norwegian Medicines Agency.

As a result, both the National Institute of Public Health and the Norwegian Medicines Agency have changed the coronary vaccination guide with new advice for this group.

– If you are very frail, you should probably not be vaccinated, said subject director Steinar Madsen in the Norwegian Medicines Agency at a webinar on coronary vaccine for journalists on Thursday.

He emphasizes over NRK that these cases are rare, and that many thousands of frail people have been vaccinated without a fatal outcome.

This is in line with the recommendations that came from FHI earlier this week.

Different symptoms
As of 14 January, a total of 29 adverse reaction reports have been assessed after covid-19 vaccination. Of these, 21 are women and eight are men.
14 of these were in the age group 80–89 years, and seven were over 90 years old. Four were aged 70-79 years and four were aged 18-69 years.

13 of the reported reports had a fatal outcome, 9 had serious side effects and 7 are described as not serious side effects.

The most commonly reported adverse reactions are general symptoms, such as decreased general fever and general malaise, and injection site reactions. Gastrointestinal symptoms such as diarrhea, nausea and vomiting, and respiratory symptoms such as shortness of breath and cough are also among the most commonly reported side effects.

This is the first report on side effects from the Norwegian Medicines Agency, which will in future come with weekly side effect reports.

I just listened to the Dr. Simone Gold (America’s Frontline Doctors) talk that someone posted the other day. She said as an ER doc she lost frail, elderly people to the common cold and even a nosebleed. So it’s very possible that a side effect from the experimental medical intervention could lead to death in this population. It’s quite insane to be going to such great lengths to prolong the lives of people who have already exceeded average life expectancy by quite a lot and who, let’s face it, are are living on borrowed time. I don’t say this to sound cold and heartless, but we need to inject some realism into the debate and acknowledge that we will all die someday.

In my previous role I never got used to the fact that many older people were on 15 or more medications and had so many serious underlying conditions. Quality of life was very poor due to living alone. We have not respected older people for many years in this country and many are highly medicated and living on to a great age in squalid conditions and with poor mobility.

358348 DeepBlueYonder, replying to DeepBlueYonder, 7, #1115 of 2133 🔗

The ONS have now published their ‘Weekly provisional figures on deaths registered in England and Wales’ for the year up to week ended 1 January 2021.

This gives a figure of 614,114 for deaths from all causes for England and Wales. This is substantially above the five year average from 2015 to 2019 (by about 83,000). (It should be noted, however, that a simple comparison of the numbers of deaths does not take into account the changing age structure of the population, and population growth, so is very crude).

The question then becomes how to account for the additional deaths between: those caused by the virus (or where the virus was a contributory factor); those caused by the policy responses to the virus (or where these were a contributory factor); and those caused by other factors altogether (weather, preceding year’s mortality rate, structural factors, and so on).

A bit off topic but I read somewhere a few days ago that something happened on Jan 11th and that Trump was no longer in charge.

Today I found this:

https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefings-statements/president-donald-j-trump-approves-district-columbia-emergency-declaration/

FEMA is part of the continuity of Government and is authorised to run the entire federal government during times of emergency with no input from teh rpesident, vice president etc.

This is what it says in the Stafford Act mentioned in the emergency devclaration:

“Title V of the Stafford Act contains language that appears to grant the President extraordinary powers during times of a declared national emergency:

The President may: exercise any authority vested in him by section 5192 of this title or section 5193 of

this title [Sections 502 or 503] with respect to an emergency when he determines

that an emergency exists for which the primary responsibility for response rests with

the United States because the emergency involves a subject area for which, under

the Constitution or laws of the United States, the United States exercises exclusive

or preeminent responsibility and authority.

(a) Specified – In any emergency, the President may –

(1) direct any Federal agency, with or without reimbursement, to utilize its authorities

and the resources granted to it under Federal law (including personnel, equipment,

supplies, facilities, and managerial, technical and advisory services) in support of

State and local emergency assistance efforts to save lives, protect property and

public health and safety, and lessen or avert the threat of a catastrophe, including

precautionary evacuations;”

From the Spectator;

“Are these shock and awe tactics necessary?
Downing Street has launched an advertising campaign, as first reported by Katy Balls on Coffee House , that warns getting a takeout coffee could kill – to further emphasise the ‘stay at home’ message. The government graphic on Facebook reads ‘Don’t let a coffee cost lives’, while another on Twitter says ‘Catch-ups cost lives’. It is unlikely to please the hospitality sector, currently relying on takeaway trade after a terrible year.”

Boris and co you can go and shove it. Restaurants in part of Italy and Germany the opening irrespective of regulations and it will be coming here soon. People can see through the lies.

I get regular emails from Costa and Caffè Nero about their current takeaway offerings, though I rarely get a takeaway coffee.

It’s significant, I think, that they are trying to dissuade people from buying takeaways, instead of just banning it. They’re either trying to soften the public up for an actual ban, or are just trying to shame people for acting legally because they think actually banning them would be a step too far.

Re Dr Simone Gold and the American Frontline Doctors, (AFLD).
A cursory Google of her and them yields all sorts of unsavoury comments from multiple sources regarding their claims. A quick Google of Dr Gold’s infection and fatality figures re’ Africa and her assertions for the efficacy of Hydroxychloroquine yield almost unanimous refutations of both.
Her undoubted ‘sincerity’ and presentational skills in the vid’ referenced in today’s “Round-Up” are at odds with Gold, the Capitol Hill rioting attendee, and finding any backing for her and AFLD on Google is well-nigh impossible.
Perhaps Google’s malign influence is even more pernicious than we thought. Or is there another, more prosaic explanation?

358481 ▶▶ Banjones, replying to 10navigator, 3, #1169 of 2133 🔗

I think the words ”Well, they WOULD say that, wouldn’t they?” are appropriate.

If you Google any of the people who, like Dr Gold, speak out against or even quietly question the ”narrative” (as with the Canadian GP I linked to earlier who was called ”a quack”) you get vitriol.

”Multiple sources”? Doesn’t this show just how far the net is thrown? And are they to be believed because they’re vitriolic? Surely a reasoned refutation would be more believable.

Or is that a conspiracy theory?

358632 ▶▶▶ 10navigator, replying to Banjones, #1170 of 2133 🔗

I mindful of your point, there’s even one or two disparaging articles on the estimable Mike Yeadon, but until you see the chapter and verse stacked up against AFLD, documented, referenced and asking for feedback from their very mediocre ten members by no means, all doctors (e.g.a non-practising Opthalmologist etc), then you won’t comprehend the problem. No right-thinking person takes anything at face value and I’ve been an avid adherent to LS since inception. However, to reiterate, Gold and her claims look mighty iffy with a modicum of analytical circumspection and she and AFLD garner absolutely no corroboration from any source for their claims.

It’s also noticeable that so called refutations of lockdown sceptics never (and I do not use that word lightly) amount to more than saying “They are wrong” or “They are lying”. But they never go to the trouble of presenting evidence factually disproving what the sceptics have stated.

Rather interesting figure comparing C-19 deaths official statistic from April peak, blue with the autumn/winter peak orange. Prof Giesecke said that one year from April 2020 most countries would have more or less the same type of death rate. The lockdown, mask mandated Eastern Europe was never spared in the long run.
There are really only two countries in Europe spared C-19 at the moment, Finland and Norway due to their periphery, border closures, and outside international junctions. So far the virus has not kicked off yet but just waiting for the best opportunity. Perhaps these countries are hoping that mass vaccination will cancel the day of reckoning but how do you persuade populations in those countries to take the vaccine for a disease which have affected them little in the way of illness and deaths?

At least 57 TfL workers have died from Covid-19, the majority during the first lockdown in 2020.

When I come across snippets like this (from the Guardian today), I try and cross check them against flu vaccinations. Here’s the corresponding snippet from TfL’s 2016 H and S report (link below):

Winter health

The flu jab campaign ran between

October and December at many

operational and office locations. A total

of 2,838 vaccinations were given.

Of course I can’t really verify what these figures mean (although it wouldn’t surprise me if the vaccination figure was higher in subsequent years). However, when I hear of what might be above-average figures for covid deaths in a particular group, I simply ask, were they a priority group for flu vaccination? I haven’t been let down yet.

NB Total number of TfL employees is 28,000 which means a death rate from covid of 0.2%, double the national rate of 0.1%. Not only that, most workers at TfL are under 65 and healthy enough to be working which would indicate an alarming difference between them and their fellow age group – at least ten fold according to my very rough calculations.

This difference will probably be put down to lack of PPE and contact with the public (bus drivers). However they don’t say how many of the deaths were of customer facing staff so even that doesn’t necessarily explain the difference.

Relevant to lockdown being a means to an end of globalist aims.

Blair’s chum Gordon Brown is back on the scene tipped to take over Scottish Labour following resignation of insignificant other.

Blair back from the crypt following Hancock disappointing his globalist overlords. Gordon Brown is globalist, he has dipped his oar in now and then at UK national level during lockdown, always to globalist reasons.

Interesting that there is such a lack of talent* that these ghouls from the past ressurrect.

* younger generations starved of oxygen to grow into solid statesmen and women, or perhaps a rejection of talent in younger generations to become trusted by the globalist overlords?

The masking zealots’ creed.

Every problem has a solution.
Covid is the only problem.
Masking is the only solution.
If everyone wore masks all the time, there would be no covid.
Since there is covid, it is caused by the mask deniers.
To eliminate covid, the masking deniers must be eliminated.

Supposing about 10% are deniers, that means in the UK about six million have to be eliminated.

Now a new religion is on the rise, vaccine worship. But it’s still compatible with the old (2020) beliefs, which can be held in parallel.

Something to dampen the enthusiasm for the Spectator/Tory grandee for the vaccine. These side effects are substantial worse than flu vaccine. These objective facts should not be suppressed. It will only make matters worse. This is not antivaxx propaganda. Just objective reports.

“CDC has released its updated batch of reported Covid vaccine side effect data, through Jan. 8, when roughly 6.6 million doses had been administered. And it is… not good. Reported deaths per dose are now running at 85x per dose of flu vaccine, and ER trips at 35x…

This is a summary of the different vaccines and especially information about trials which has not been published. Some naughty Russians has hacked emails from EMA(European Medicine Agency) and are included in here .Main concern is the short time period. Animal studies in rats and six apes.

The problem is always potential carcinogenic (cancer inducing )ingredients in the vaccine or in the vaccine’s adjuvants(the vehicle to carry the vaccine).This is always a problem in all vaccines and therefore longer studies is needed in normal circumstances. If there is a risk of cancer developing it will usually take long time so therefore this is a problem for the younger recipients of the vaccine

“Attention! Attention! Under the power invested in me under the (inaudible) regulations please return home immediately. I repeat please return home immediately. This is not an exercise. Please return home immediately. Please stay at home and do not eat or drink until you receive further instructions. I repeat stay at home until you receive further instructions. Further details can be obtained from our website www. (inaudible) .com”

The response was excellent, some people dropped their shopping and started running

I had a very productive couple of hours outside Costco

At one point I was stopped by the rozzers. I pointed out that I was reinforcing government advice. I added that I was also working towards my NVQ Level One Deputy Covid Marshalls Badge, and could they please sign my evidence sheet

They were very kind and said ‘we could do with more like you’ before signing

If I can bring a little ray of sunshine into peoples lives as I go along my way then it’s been a good day

Prof Chris Whitty tells the press conference that the number of cases is still “extremely high”.
“We are still at the place where just shy of one in 50 has Covid,” he says.
But the chief medical officer for England says there is some “levelling off” in the cases “thanks to enormous efforts by so many people” and because “virtually everyone” is adhering to the guidance.
“We were not sure this was going to be possible with the new variant,” he adds.

As there have been 2000+ new variants, why the concern other than to maintain the fear.

Gloomy thought for the weekend regarding vaccines. What if:

  1. Take-up is insufficient to achieve herd immunity (think France, US, Germany etc.)
  2. The vaccine doesn’t have sterilising immunity (i.e. doesn’t stop the spread)
  3. New variants can’t be stopped by the vaccine

Then governments will SURELY have to re-assess living with the virus rather than trying to stop it. Accepting the deaths and realising the life cannot be on hold forever.

I would personally rather then vaccine ‘worked’ but even if it doesn’t I think there will be an exit from the Madness from the spring/summer…

Oh dear …, the vaccine isn’t supposed to work , work against what exactly, protect who ?
The agenda is vax passports and a total ID/tracked future and that’s just for starters.
This is not about a public health emergency, a global coup is underway over which we the ordinary folk who will be affected most have absolutely no say.
This isn’t going to end until the WHO declares the pandemic over.
We are being psyoped and groomed to accept the continuous evolution of the lockdown restrictions. It’s called predictive programming.
Only this week we’ve been softened up for no May elections, then the totally discredited Ferguson is back talking about restrictions until the autumn.
The release will be through acquiescing to the ID agenda via vax.
But there will be further “mutations” and further mystery viruses the vax requirement will be regular and multiple. This is the trans humanism agenda, it isn’t fantasy it isn’t made up conspiracy it’s fact it’s the global agenda and it’s playing out right now.

I spotted thees quotes on the latest ONS Deaths report:

In Week 53, the number of deaths registered was 26.6% above the five-year average (2,115 deaths higher) but this increase should be treated with caution.

trends in this week’s release should be interpreted with caution.

So don’t they trust their own numbers?

And does this show the vaccine effect again:

The biggest increase was seen in those aged between 85 and 89 years (100 more deaths). More than three-quarters (75.3%) of deaths involving COVID-19 were in people aged 75 years and over.

Between Weeks 52 and 53, the number of deaths involving COVID-19 increased in hospitals, care homes, private homes, hospices and elsewhere (167, 30, 25, 9 and 1 more death respectively).

I suspect that some form of mass civil disobedience (which no doubt would lead to some violent confrontations with police) is the only thing which is going to get us out of this. However I cant see that happening in the UK so far as the vast majority of businesses seem not only to implement the restrictions but also be true believers in them. When the government says ‘jump’ their response is to say ‘is that high enough’.

That also goes for all ‘non government organisations’. Just to give 4 examples of things I am involved in….The wildlife Trusts,The Severn Valley Railway,the Chipping Campden Music Festival and Symphony Hall. Not a peep of resistance out of any of them…even if it ultimately destroys them…all their communications are slavish in their adherence to the covid religion.

Sorry? I’m lost.

Before 2020 it was established science that not only do quarantines not work, but that they are pursued rather for political reasons.

It was also held, that where one subset of the population, as in this case, was paricularly vulnerable to infection, that slowing down the spread of a disease would ultimately result in more deaths – ie the same message as in thstudy from Univ. Edinburgh that I posted yesterday.

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2021-01-15/goldfix-what-they-said-about-lockdowns-covid

Snippet:

  1. In the Epidemiology Journal, Harvard and Yale professors Marc Lipsitch and Ted Cohen say delaying infection can leave the elderly worse off . (2008)

They explain how delaying the risk of infection can work counterintuitively when the pathogen is more lethal for older populations. They say, “Reducing the risk that each member of a community will be exposed to a pathogen has the attendant effect of increasing the average age at which infections occur. For pathogens that inflict greater morbidity at older ages, interventions that reduce but do not eliminate exposure can paradoxically increase the number of cases of severe disease by shifting the burden of infection toward older individuals.” Based on this analysis, Covid-19, which disproportionately harms the older more than the young, is better handled by allowing the community to be exposed, whether through natural infection or vaccination.

  1. A team of Johns Hopkins scholars say quarantines don’t work but are pursued for political reasons . (September 2019)

In the report, they explain how quarantine is more political than related to public health: “During an emergency, it should be expected that implementation of some NPIs, such as travel restrictions and quarantine, might be pursued for social or political purposes by political leaders, rather than pursued because of public health evidence.”
