It says “Updated 3 Feb.” It does not say they made a factual correction, which appears to mean it was factually correct on 15 January and it is factually correct now.

Yes, there was a report on Sky News recently saying he’d had the first dose of the vaccine. It was on yotube, but it’s mysteriously vanished from there (haha).

Reuters have fact-checked the claim that Captain Tom Moore had been vaccinated and found it to be false. https://www.reuters.com/article/uk-factcheck-vaccine-death/fact-check-captain-tom-did-not-receive-and-was-not-killed-by-the-coronavirus-vaccine-idUSKBN2A52KP

I do not take anything the corporate media say at face value. But the concerted attempt to pretend that they never said he had been vaccinated, and that this claim originated on social media and was false, is highly suspicious.

Echoes of the anti-Trump campaign:

https://time.com/5936036/secret-2020-election-campaign/
“The solution…. was to pressure platforms to enforce their rules, both by removing content or accounts that spread disinformation and by more aggressively policing it in the first place.”

Just like censoring anything not approved regarding CV19, treatments, medical doctors, side effects of any vaccine….

400309 ▶▶▶▶ Basics, replying to Steve Hayes, 11, #15 of 1279 🔗

Its a lovely little knot the fact checkers have got themselves into. The vaccine/gene therapy gives no protection against covid only lessens symptoms – they say, not me.

So obscuring the fact he was jabbed in defence of an ineffective medical intervention seems only to served the continued disinformed consent of millions of others.

Are fact checkers a guilty party deserving of tial?

Thanks, only asking since a cap would be good to share. The image with unreadable ticker isn’t. I’ve no doubt there’s a rotten stench.

Also notice the white pawn statue I joked about a few days back has been mentioned. A Tom statue for BLM to decry, and to then be appeased with a black pawn of suitably virtuous and controversial past.

Late last night, I was browsing Mail Online and checked the comments on the Captain Tom story. The worst comment, with more than 300 red arrows stated that CT had received the jab as reported on Sky News. I replied that I had also heard Sky News reported that CT had been jabbed and made some other comment about the fact that this could no longer be found on the internet and that the MSM were hiding the truth. When I looked about five minutes later to see if my comment had been printed, I saw that the original comment had been pulled. DM are doing this a lot more recently. Usually the late night comments don’t get removed until the morning, so they must have extra staff on the job…

400192 ▶▶▶ BeBopRockSteady, replying to Alex, 16, #22 of 1279 🔗

You can say many many things that are considered as being against the grain right now. Lockdowns bad, NHS complicit, SAGE bought out. But the push to drive all possibly negative views on the vaccines from public view is so evident.

It says to me they’ll want to make it outright illegal soon. To be in any way opposed to the saintly vaccine will be met with jail time. I would be confident they are working on this.

Just because they call you a conspiracy theorist, it doesn’t mean you’re wrong…:

https://time.com/5936036/secret-2020-election-campaign/
The Secret History of the Shadow Campaign That Saved the 2020 Election
“Their work touched every aspect of the election. They got states to change voting systems and laws and helped secure hundreds of millions in public and private funding. They fended off voter-suppression lawsuits, recruited armies of poll workers and got millions of people to vote by mail for the first time. They successfully pressured social media companies to take a harder line against disinformation and used data-driven strategies to fight viral smears.”

Disinformation = information we don’t want you to know.

Churchill stated that Prohibition was “an affront to the whole history of mankind.” The item talks about Johnson being fretful and cautious, Many things were said about Churchill but I do not recall cautious and fretful being among them.
It is really weird that Johnson has become the face of totalitarian authoritarian big government. The proposed changes to the NHS seem more like Kruschev’s USSR and the complete opposite of what I would have liked to see.

Agree about NHS. Last March one of my first thoughts was this might mean someone has the guts to completely change the way the NHS works and is funded, I was wrong sadly. Still would have been a perfect opportunity. What’s proposed is pathetic tinkering as usual.

There’s a back story to the drama relating to financial shenanigans and deceits of the time, but there are core archetypes that resonate.
Note that this hugely popular film has not had multiple remakes.
I read that it was one of the last truly family and community minded films to come out of Hollywood.

400138 ▶▶▶ Binra, replying to Judy Watson, 2, #38 of 1279 🔗

Its the other way around. Lockdown = sectioned. And your mindset is default ‘infected’ with unconscious bias, to be restructured with a bit of ‘nudging’, vacca-cination and flouride. What could possibly go right?

Without the global bankers this fire could not burn. Therefore it is actively supported by those who hold the ultimate system of supply and choke-control to a ‘stakeholder’ level, that is then supply of the next level in the pyramid.
So the worship of possession and control is the god of ‘Private Agenda’ set in place of freedom to align in true needs lived, shared and fulfilled.

The plot always was mad, but to the private bubble seeking to evade full disclosure of lack of substance along with masking deceits to cover it, it is the only way to save ‘their world’.

They can then wash there hands and withdraw support to the hospitality trade whilst hobbling them. Given Nut Nut’s plans to put “environmental” taxes on meat and dairy products I imagine extra tax will be levied on alcohol to keep Greta and Attenborough happy.

Yes that’s the mindset that feeds the money to the money that feeds on us.
IE Looking for personal profit above all else.
But then the correctness agenda is setting top down social ‘goals’ above profit so as to destroy the Economy under Green deals and etc.

However the point is the top down social conditioning that ratchets everything around the ‘one virus to rule them all’, hence questioning the fundamental basis of virus theory – as a genuine exploration of honest account. Not only reveals lack of scientific veracity, but the nature of a mind-capture that is predisposed to react from the belief that it is self-evident.

Otherwise you are merely pleading within a prison for better conditions.

That the funding of world banks and taxed populations can be directed to focus within specific framing of ‘bought science’ is the way Big Money controls the narrative or mind by which priority is given or denied. Priority to ‘bio-obscurity’ and obfuscation technology can be immensely lucrative (rewarded). Exposing the obscuring of fact

If you just want you narrative reality to ‘normalise’ you are a sitting duck for the targeting.

400222 ▶▶ JHUNTZ, replying to Ceriain, 28, #42 of 1279 🔗

MPs have always hated pubs. They see it as dens of iniquity where all drunk and disorder issues take place. They do not understand that the pub is a self regulated part of the community. It is a place where people are served responsibly and told when enough is enough. Violence is often rare as the punters tend to police each other and look out for their own.

It was labour who started the first hatchet job of the pubs with the beer duty escalator. Budget after budget that cunt Darling increased duty even though he was advised less tax was coming back and pubs were closing at a rate of 35 per week.

Make no mistake they want rid of your local pub. Of course they don’t want rid of their Westminster pub. Rules for thee not for me.

400305 ▶▶▶ Sceptical Steve, replying to JHUNTZ, 16, #43 of 1279 🔗

Spot on, and don’t forget how they left their own bars open within the Palace of Westminster during the original lockdown. Self-centred twats!

400354 ▶▶ Edward, replying to Ceriain, 18, #44 of 1279 🔗

It shows how detached the elite are from normal people.
(a) How could pubs be viable businesses without serving alcohol? *
(b) People, particularly the young, will just “tank up” at home before going out to the alcohol-free pub.
(c) Even non-drinkers can get boisterous when with a group of friends – social dynamics plays at least as big a part as alcohol.

* What next? – churches can open but no praying, preaching or singing?
Schools can open but no teaching? That’s back to normal for them. (Cheap joke, apologies to any good teachers reading this!)

400488 ▶▶▶ Annie, replying to Edward, 9, #45 of 1279 🔗

In Iceland, where alcohol is prohibitively expensive ( literally), it’s normal to get tanked up before you go out for the evening.
And in the remoter areas of Sweden, I’n told, they brew their own alcohol and it’ll blow your head off if you aren’t careful.

400641 ▶▶▶ Rowan, replying to Edward, 7, #46 of 1279 🔗

No alcohol means most people won’t bother. The are going to leave their beer at home for an overpriced lemonade down at the pub, no I don’t think so.

399802 NorthumbrianNomad, replying to NorthumbrianNomad, 73, #47 of 1279 🔗

In Harry Martinson’s Nobel Prize-winning space epic Aniara , a gigantic gondola transporting refugees from a ruined Earth to settler colonies on Mars is disabled by debris from an asteroid in a freak accident. Powerless, its engines destroyed, it is set on an unstoppable course out of the Solar System, but its life support systems are intact, so life goes on, for the moment, much as before. The captain assures the passengers that everything will be done to restore normality and resume the planned journey, even though he knows nothing can be done. The passengers are panicked and fearful, then reassured. They are entertained by a virtual reality system that projects into their minds the most wonderful images, memories and fantasies, according to its analysis of their personal preferences. Cocooned from reality, they begin almost to enjoy the limited life, and a society develops.

Gradually, inexorably, unease spreads as it begins to dawn on some that normality will not be restored. Religious cults emerge – from the puritanical to the ecstatic and hedonistic. Riots break out, but the crew puts them down – on a spaceship, violence is inexcusable, dangerous. Suicides increase. The captain continues to offer regular reassurance. Help is just round the corner. Once the spaceship comes near enough to the gravitational field of a celestial body, he insists, it can use that to slingshot itself round and back to Mars.

The virtual reality system, which has developed an intelligence of its own and which the passengers now worship as a deity, cracks under the psychological pressure of keeping so many unhappy people happy and destroys itself. The passengers turn its burnt-out control room into a shrine.

Some individuals deal with the situation better than others. A young woman, Daisy, just dances and listens to music, keeps her mind empty and thrives.

Lost in a world of his own, meanwhile, the captain becomes increasingly despotic, imprisoning officers who question him, and doing everything he can to conceal (not least from himself) how bleak the situation is. There is no respite, except in the cultivation of the imagination, dreams and escapist fantasies. The poems (the poet is the technician who once maintained the virtual reality machine) become more and more poignant, beautiful and hallucinatory as life becomes more and more diminished. For life adapts to the available habitat. After all, it’s not so different from a colony on Mars, or even from Earth: it’s just a bubble in space, and you live inside it as best you can. All that’s missing is the hope of a better future. Daisy, for example, simply grows old and dies: “the dance-besotted Daisy slept forever in her helix in the vault where none but adepts of the dance were laid to slumber.”

Millions of years later, the long-dead spaceship crashes into a star in the constellation of Lyra.

It’s science fiction, of course. Completely unrealistic. Martinson imagined the lethal diversion caused by a freak accident. In reality, it was a deliberate decision.

399814 ▶▶ Annie, replying to NorthumbrianNomad, 31, #48 of 1279 🔗

Or think of the space ship in The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy that has been on the launch pad, with its passengers in suspended animation ‘for your comfort and convenience’, for centuries because it never got its delivery of little lemon-scented sachets hers for wiping your hands.

The whole thing is a retelling of the Fall in modern narrative.

It posits a usurping of and splitting off from Consciousness to a situation of ‘disconnect, distance, lockdown (or locked out), and masking narrative evasion of the ‘Inevitable’.

The image of crashing into a Star is the death of the capacity (life support) for a split off bubble perspective as separate from its True Being.

To the split off ego Consciousness (big C or Infinity) is death, and life is the light that can be stolen or limited and split off from, to ‘save’ from dispossession. (Prometheus or indeed Prodigal Son).

Fear and guilt and projection are the core operators of a ‘lockdown’ mind to its ‘body’ of rules, filters and limits.

But the Law of Mind remains that what you give, sets the measure of your receipt, and so the projection of the attempt to GET RID of the hated and feared, concretises a world OF denial, debt, conflict and deceit. Go Figure! It all works!

A fundamental error, uncorrected, is a false foundation from which all else logically follows in the frame of a mistaken identity – running as believed fact by reactions operating as conditioned reflex to the same core error no matter what forms it takes.

Does truth get in the way of a good story?
Not while the narrative is given priority as the source and support for our identity.
We are freedom within Mind to explore creation through the lens of a mythic casting out of Idea. As we can here and now confirm. But what we set as the ideas from which we then extend and unfold, determines or rules what can follow unless such core definitions are re-evaluated or released for a change of mind about our mind.

My own take on this is is “Oh so they’re now in process of tying the NHS up into as neat a bundle as they can manage are they? All the better to have it ready to sell off (probably to US big business”.

For most of the time since the inception of the NHS the UK has had a Conservative government. Their record is no worse than Labour. This, and the fact that the NHS has reached peak cult status this year, make it highly unlikely the government is preparing for a sell-off.

400335 ▶▶▶▶ Sceptical Steve, replying to rose, -1, #68 of 1279 🔗

The original studies on Fluoride back in the early 20th Century established that areas with a natural background level of Fluoride observed substantial dental health benefits. Fluoridation, where it is applied, just aims to replicate those natural levels found elsewhere, and never approaches the levels identified as causing adverse health effects. (And I’m normally sceptical about this type of universal medication!)

400521 ▶▶▶▶▶ Cheezilla, replying to Sceptical Steve, 7, #69 of 1279 🔗

Not true!
The fluoride added to water supplies is not the same substance as that found naturally.
The additive is actually a toxic by-product of the aluminium industry, which is very difficult to dispose of legally and cheaply.
There’s a lot of lobbying for fluoridation. Now you know why!

Madness?

At best, this is a foreplanned shakedown racket by Big Pharma, holding the populations of the world at knife-point in order to palm off an unnecessary ‘vaccine’, dangerous to boot. In this they are aided by the financial institutions who are covering up another collapse and transfer of tax payer’s money upwards. In order to do this psychological warfare is being carried out by peoples’ own governments. Gates has monopolized the media, legacy and social. The medical profession is a coward. So is the scientific profession.

This is the worst crime against humanity in human history, given the scale.

A far worse scenario is that this gene therapy is an experimentation on the human race in order to prepare the way for the mandatory and undeclared introduction of nanotechnologies that will hook people up to a social credit cloud,

Madness?

The point is, that severe NPIs can only ‘flatten the curve’ in the short term, and cannot have significant long term impact on the spread of the disease and number of deaths.

Twelve months ago this was recognised by 99% of the world of public health, which has since been consumed by deranged, fanatical and totalitarian thinking (even from self-anointed ‘classical liberals’).

I am yet to see one concrete estimate of how many lives the lockdowns in Britain have saved.

399817 ▶▶ Steve Hayes, replying to Marcus, 3, #90 of 1279 🔗

For the first time in my life I’m actually looking forward to the local elections this year, should they not be subjected to a last minute cancellation of course.

With holidays being made illegal this year, pubs being morphed into juice bars and inevitable restrictions on household gatherings set to persist throughout the year, anybody believing this will be a summer of freedom is hopelessly misguided. With the Times confirming that Boris is the snivelling coward we all know him to be, even the vaccination of all over 50s won’t return our civil liberties intact.

I truly hope the government has believed the clearly fraudulent opinion polls, and that they go into these elections confident that the bulk of the public will show their support for the restrictions with their votes. The reality will come as a seismic shock to the Tory top brass.

And when this inevitably leads to politics snatching the reins from public health, how long before doom-mongers such as Whitty, Ferguson, Vallance and Van-Tam are given the unceremonious boot out the door?

Boris only cares about Boris. Crush the Tories in May and we’ll start to see real change.

It’s not a general election. Farage will have his party up and running, and Richard Tice (party chairman) has been very vocal on lockdowns and PCR fraud. Say what you want about him but Farage is a cunning political opportunist. Labour will back the cancellation of summer – voters will be reminded of this when campaigning starts.

Your average Joe probably won’t be motivated to vote, but I suspect many, many thousands of people incensed with the damage done to their businesses, their children and their livelihoods will.

Probably not just London that is losing population in this country. I suspect we’re going to see a pretty wholesale redistribution of population and the longer Bloody Lockdown goes on for then the more this will be so. Personally I moved a few years ago from a small/nice city (one of the provincial ones) to elsewhere in the country. So I’ve been following property for sale closely ever since in both areas (mine and the area I now live in). Back in the early 2010’s the only home computers I noticed in property details in my provincial city were clearly used in the vast majority of cases by the owner for themselves personally. In the last few months I am noticing a LOT more computers in peoples homes for sale in that city by far (ie in those estate agent details) than I ever used to and it’s very clear many of those computers are being used for work, rather than personally. My strong suspicion is that many people even in smaller/nicer cities are now trying to move to elsewhere in the country.

To me – for people to even move from a pleasant small city just goes to show how many people now feel pretty disillusioned about whether we will ever be allowed to have Normal back again and are thus rehousing themselves elsewhere.

400133 ▶▶▶ ElizaP, replying to Bart Simpson, 4, #143 of 1279 🔗

That to me would be explicable by the fact that living in a more country-ish type area is dearer in some respects – eg if heating isn’t mains or solar panels it will be dearer, there’s having to have a car (courtesy of poor public transport – though of course lots of people who don’t need one have one anyway) and so on. But if one focuses down on about the last 6 months I think a different picture emerges – ie once people (both us and the sheeple) clicked that Bloody Lockdown seems to be going on for an awful lot longer than 3 weeks.

400207 ▶▶ Spikedee1, replying to ElizaP, 4, #144 of 1279 🔗

I Don’t think the “city” will be the place of work anymore. Any big business will be looking at their work still being carried out and asking, why do we need that head office in London? My wife works in Harlow and has been WFH for a year. They have closed half the site down, got rid of the canteen.

She’s absolutely right of course. I know this more than most – as my own father was kept artificially “alive” for more than 30 years – as his health just went down and down ad infinitum and yet still they kept up the artificial interference (for which I was never quite sure how much was his own choice to unnaturally prolong his life – as he was an atheist and didn’t want to leave my mother on her own). I managed to agree with my erstwhile brother and sister-in-law that our mother was just to be “kept comfortable and painfree” thankfully and she wasn’t an atheist (ie so not scared of death).

Thanks to the nurse for putting up those details re living will. I used to have one previously – but had to bin it when I found the NHS were withdrawing artificial nutrition and hydration and that that was painful for the recipient. Will check it out to see if it’s possible for me to spell out in exact detail what I would or wouldn’t be prepared to have (ie no life-prolonging treatment – but they WILL do artificial nutrition/hydration if need be) and I want to put in a voluntary euthanasia clause to be effective the second the law changes to allow that in this country (perhaps I should call it the “5 minutes later clause” – to indicate that I would expect them to be watching the news and the second the Government fired the starting gun to make voluntary euthanasia legal I’d be watching the clock to check whether they’d done the deed literally 5 minutes later).

Thanks Eliza. I just wanted to say that although you are correct to bring religion into this discussion, being an atheist does not mean being fearful of death. I am atheist and I assure you I do not fear death at all. I am totally comfortable with the concept of ceasing to exist, and would similarly want my life to end at the humane point. Why are pets are given this right but not people?

There is a big difference between being an atheist because it is logical and becoming an atheist because you can’t be bothered with religion. I would expect that most atheists who got there through deep thought, do not fear death. The people that replaced old religion with new religions like social media virtue signalling are the ones presently running around like headless chickens.

Saying that, I think lack of religion is a big part of the covid problem. I used to think that the world would be a better place without religion, but I now appreciate that people are not ready for it. It turns out that most people cannot function in a decent way when faced with perceived risk of death, especially if they don’t really believe they are going to live on a cloud/get an allocation of virgins/come back as an animal etc.

400252 ▶▶▶▶ JaneHarry, replying to TheBluePill, 7, #152 of 1279 🔗

I suspect most people who claim to have a principled objection to religion are in fact objecting to something else entirely – namely dogma, superstition, irrationality.

I have been wondering how atheists feel about it – because it’s such a different outlook to my own. I understand why I obviously feel a bit anxious about the transition process to an afterlife. But I am 101% sure there will be an Afterlife and it will be a much much better place than here and I will start by celebrating being free from Earth.

That sums it up for me too. I’m an atheist as well and I don’t really think about what happens after death — don’t know and don’t much care. Like you, I’m way more afraid of dying at the hands of the medical profession than of death itself. Even as a very young person I was more afraid of getting old than of dying. Now that I’m middle-aged I’d say this still holds true. As a person who needs to be in control, becoming older and infirm signifies a lack of control to me.

I believe the hospice nurse’s piece holds true for Germany, too. The system shows “love and care” as a facade, but then hospitals were closed in 2020. Health care workers who are critical of the jab, get kicked from their jobs. Ward managers are under a lot of pressure, because government wants everybody to get the vaccine. But it’s not only the system’s fault, since people seem to be under the impression, they will live forever, when everybody does what the “experts” say. Or, they’re simply afraid of pain, death and dying. Maybe it’s the fear of the unknown. Maybe a suppressed guilty conscience, and the fear of judgement from God? (Coincidentally, the transhumanist vision of mankind seems to stem from a fear of life and death, a fear of the human body, the free expression of the body, and therefore aims to get rid of the human body, and achieve immortality. That’s just my impression.) The way the pandemic is handled by goverments and MSM has just hightened this fear of pain,death and dying. It’s incredible, how people would rather see society collapse, and how they rather turn against “deviants”, than let everybody decide how to live based on uncensored information. And the weirdest attitude I have discovered so far, is how victims of C19 use their fate to claim the moral high ground. Those want everybody to think and do the same, because “we’re in this together”, and we all show our care for each other by wearing those masks, but when it comes to suffering, which was not caused by C19 itself, but by the countermeasures, they’re inclined to turn a blind eye. Maybe C19 also reveals another problem, which modern Western societies have produced, and that is egotism or narcissism.

So I see the much fabled “R” rate is now lower than since July.
A time when there was a certain level of normality, meeting families, “eating out to help out”, going to the cinema, holidays, just sitting in a cafe etc.
Yet now we will be arrested for sitting on a park bench, schools are still barred and some terrified people don’t leave their home at all.

Fluoridation of the water supply is very concerning. Fluoride is soluble so it can’t be filtered out and if you boil the water you just end up concentrating it. It has an effect on the brain so in order to really avoid it you either need an expensive reverse osmosis system fitted or buy bottled spring water.

What could possibly go wrong?

Nothing to do with socialised medicine. The USA is the most fluoridated country in the world. Mainland Europe doesn’t do it.

Birmingham has been fluoridated a long time. >30 years ago, I helped with a campaign against water fluoridation in the E Midlands, which is supplied by Anglian Water. We discovered that unfluoridated East Anglia had lower dental decay levels than B’ham. Also Anglian Water was rather concerned about being sued if it added something unnecessary to the tap water.

Great post!!

The Fluoride Action network (FAN) in the US has been fighting water fluoridation for years – last June a court case

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency also does not have any safety data on fluoride intake and its effects on the brain. During the fluoride trial against the EPA, which took place in June 2020, Michael Connett, an attorney for the Fluoride Action Network (FAN) who is leading the lawsuit, asked the EPA to identify all studies that demonstrate or support the neurological safety of prenatal fluoride exposure .

They produced a single study from 1995, in which the neurotoxicity of sodium fluoride was assessed in rats. Ironically, this study actually shows that neonatal fluoride exposure is neurotoxic, and EPA scientists confirmed that this was indeed the case.

The Fight Against Water Fluoridation Continues

Hopefully, FAN’s legal action against the EPA will result in the elimination of fluoride from U.S. water supplies. We still have a ways to go though. As it stands, the judge in the case has asked FAN to allow the EPA to reassess the evidence before he makes a ruling.

Clean pure water is a prerequisite to optimal health. Industrial chemicals, drugs and other toxic additives really have no place in our water supplies.

A friend who is taking part in the ONS study was alarmed when he was told that one of his samples had shown positive. Since he hadn’t been out of his house apart from the occasional stroll he didn’t see how he could have picked up an infection.
He decided to have a further test a day later (which was permitted under government rules) and unsurprisingly it turned out negative. On contacting T&T he was told he still had to isolate and he got rather cross. The tracers were adamant, he had to remain isolated “to be on the safe side”!

A new case in the community,this one in Hamilton.Luckily for NZ this was an ex Pullham Hotel Isolation person,who together with all others released from that hotel has self isolated in the home in Hamilton, (as all olther ex-Pulham persons due to community cases.orignating from Pullham Hotel).
This just shows the tremendous difficulties,if you are serious of zerocovid.All these now 5 community cses have all been in quarantaine for 14 days at Pulham hotel and all had 2 neg and released.
Then they developed symtoms in some cases after being released. They have had a stroke of luck as no further spread arund them(article above)
Why does this happen? Two neg tests,could it still be false neg? Or could it be possible with silent non detectable carriage of the virus and then expresssing itself due to unknown climatological reason? This has been discussed about the Antartic outbreak of common cold and also discussed with the South Americn sailors 4 weeks in the pacific and outbreak.This was also part of Hope Simpson speculation of sudden outbreak of influenza in several different localities on the same latitude.

Underground Pubs

You’re telling us no booze in pubs,
We’ll open up speakeasy clubs,
We’ll take our drinking underground,
Where we can freely spend our pounds.

These clubs would not just sell us booze,
They’d bring us life where we could choose,
Choose to ditch these horrid masks,
Choose to ignore what Boris asks.

They’d be places where communities,
Would rediscover unity,
We’d talk just like we do on here,
Chatting o’er a pint of beer.

We’d soon sort out this awful mess,
Save this nation from distress,
If we could meet a share share a drink,
We’d soon find out what other’s think.

Maybe that is what they fear,
Maybe that’s why it’s ‘no beer’,
For booze would loosen up our tongues,
The government’s power would soon be gone.

Johnson wants to avoid another lockdown at all costs… so he keeps us indefinitely in lockdown. You can’t make this up. There is just no urgency whatsoever to lifting what was always meant to be a ‘nuclear’, last-resort option of very short duration. Surely this massive moving of the goalposts cannot be beyond the general population now. Every day that we are locked inside, that businesses are shuttered, that children are denied an education and socialisation, that we are kept away from loved ones, that we are denied medical care, is another day which will eventually become irreversible damage. Why on EARTH is our government not railing against the SAGE cabal and chomping at the bit to end these deeply destructive measures?

Note also how the politicians are promising us a ‘glorious summer’ – and then what? Back in lockdown to ‘save’ the administrative failure that is the NHS from its usual winter pressures? Why can’t we have ‘glorious freedom’ for the rest of our lives? Stop throwing us bones and then snatching them away from us. It’s psychological torture wreaked en-masse across the entire population. It is deeply inhumane. We should not have to barter and beg for our own freedom and it should absolutely never be conditional upon being coerced to take an emergency, experimental medical treatment. Plus the banning of alcohol in pubs just reeks of control-freakery and medico-fascism. It is a public health quango’s wet dream to have top-down control of every aspect of the public’s health and now they have it, they are not letting go without a fight.

I am convinced that there is a lot of anger bubbling under the surface that is not being unleashed because there’s no outlet for it. I start a new job in September and I have recently been added to a ‘group chat’ of other people starting at the same time as me, as well as some current trainees. The current ones have been working from home for almost a year now and their first comment was how bored they are and how unproductive it is having to sit in front of a screen all day with little variation or respite. I’m not surprised. I get a definite impression of apathy but I don’t think it is borne from not caring about what’s going on. Rather, I think a lot of people want things to change and are utterly fed up (and some are very angry) but they feel totally powerless to change anything. The people that are doing this to us are completely unaccountable – we can’t exactly boot Whitty or Vallance out of office after 5 years. I also think it’s a cultural thing: Brits don’t make a fuss, stiff upper lip, etc. I am half-Italian so I definitely have that fiery continental passion, and I feel more Italian than British most of the time.

Once restrictions are lifted for a long enough period, people will begin to realise this has been a very disproportionate and damaging overreaction, as they did in the summer, which is why the government clamped down so hard again come autumn/winter. Can’t have people gathering and exchanging notes on this mess, now can we?

The government are terrified of us and they know that one little slip will lead to the house falling in on them – hence the increasingly bizarre and nonsensical measures as they try desperately to hurl any shit at the wall and hope it sticks.

Why? We were told back in March by Whitty that any lockdown would have to be very short-term, because compliance would evaporate if it went on forever. This is exactly what has happened. Johnson also described lockdown as the ‘nuclear’ option back in the summer.

The government is using coercive control over the population. The good cop/ bad cop routine is an element of that. The absurdity of this “lockdown”, which I suspect might be worrying the government as much as anything else, is that no one is observing it, everyone knows no one is observing it and the government knows that everyone knows that no one is observing it yet the virus is disappearing. So lockdown isn’t controlling the virus and even a lockdown zealot like Clarke is starting to question the efficacy of vaccines which leaves the nightmare scenario, politically, that herd immunity has been reached and the lockdowns were a complete waste of time.

Agree with what you said Poppy. I suspect the government knows the day of reckoning is at hand hence why we had Lockdown 3.

However do they not realise that the longer the clampdown the more violent the push back will be?

We’ve seen it in places like the Netherlands and Denmark – countries that no-one in a million years would think would push back so violently. People can only take in so much and once they’ve backed into a corner, the response will be violent.

But where are we Poppy? We have been in lockdown since the end of summer. Sure they called them tiers but they were still taking away my right to live my life fully. We Think we can open up in May! WHAT! That means we will have been locked down for about six months! Can you hear the cries of anguish, can you hear the heated debate? Can you see the demonstrations about the loss of liberty. Can you see the mums and children protesting about schools bring closed and their children’s mental health. Can you see businesses saying stuff it I need to open?
No, neither can I. Thousands of remainers and brexiteers gathered to protest against a supposed loss of sovereignty and freedom. But when they get a true loss of democracy and freedom nothing happens. If you could find the answer to this question, I think we may have a better understanding. I am totally confused I thought this would be all over by now because we just would not stand it. Shows you how powerful the MSM is when it totally supports the government.

All well said and written and spot on regarding the stiff upper lip of the Brits, who are having a real hard time getting their heads around that their government is officially abusing them, as proper narcissistic psychopaths do.

Nothing, and no fact to the contrary will penetrate his mind. In fact, whatever I say, however low my jaw drops that he cannot see what’s going on, the more I get bashed as a nutter who sees this as the world being evil etc etc.

How can you penetrate minds like that? In his mind it is perfectly feasible that yes “we will be locked in again next winter for 6 months because this pandemic is just real tough”.

400647 ▶▶ Ovis, replying to Poppy, 4, #269 of 1279 🔗

Poppy, I want to agree with you…but:

1) It is unclear that restrictions ever will be lifted, precisely in order to prevent the realisation that you predict. This is for ever, but packaged up a few months and a new variant at a time.

2) Yes, people are angry. And yes, among many younger people their anger is correctly directed (for now, at least. Steps may be taken to change that if it becomes dangerous). But the regime is working hard and to some effect to direct that anger away from itself. Hence Hancock’s apparently quite effective campaign to scapegoat the disabled, along with a small number of conscientious objectors, who do not wear the vile mask.

The fact is that I just can’t see what will end this. The regime is now openly post-democratic. We have insufficient leverage to change the political calculus, no matter how obvious it becomes to a fair-minded observer that we are right. I see no external pressure. Even those nightmare scenarios that people are half hoping for, such as uncontrolled economic collapse, would function only as an excuse for the regime to grab even more power.

When the government introduced internment without trial in Northern Ireland even they didn’t have the brass neck to charge the inmates

How to introduce internment by stealth? Say it’s for travelers, say they are hotels not prisons and keep repeating the word quarantine

Once the scheme is up and running it’s easy enough to repurpose the internment camps to house dissidents and ‘vaccine’ refusers

‘Yes we would have liked to set you free in May but we can’t because of the vaccine refusers. What to do with them?’

A bent YouGov poll to show that people support the use of ‘luxury hotels’ for dissidents and Bobs your uncle

At an annual cost of about £30,000 most dissidents would be financially ruined or cave in and have the ‘vaccine’

Note the internment camps will be strategically placed with easy access from the whole country

When I first learned that the response to SARS-cov-2 was being informed by ‘models’, (seems like an eternity ago now), I just thought to myself: the narrative for this is going to play out just as it has for global warming.
Anyone expressing doubts or scepticism about the response to the ‘pandemic’ will be labelled ‘deniers’ (didn’t take long for that to happen); there will be ad hominen attacks on the credibility of even the most eminent no matter how well reasoned their scepticism is; those who raise reasonable doubts about the possible safety or need for vaccines will be ‘anti-vaxxers’; the MSN will be ‘on side’ so that the few who speak out will be like lone wolves howling in the wilderness, or pissing in the wind.
Those who have the temerity to suggest that their might be another way, will be regarded as dangerous cranks.
I am therefore not remotely surprised by the report from Spectator US.
The Speaker of the House of Commons, Lindsay Hoyle, is very excited by the prospect of using things like lockdowns to save the planet:

‘For Jain, the doctor in Delhi, the change can be measured in other ways, too. Not so long ago, people were afraid even to set foot in Rajiv Gandhi Super Specialty Hospital, the place where he works. Now they’re coming in and “sitting and talking to each other,” he said.

Jain worries about a possible resurgence of cases such as the one Europe experienced. But he also allows himself a measure of hope. “I’m a bit optimistic that this disease is over,” he said.’

‘He thinks that urban India is unlikely to see a second wave like the one in Europe, as long as existing antibodies offer some protection against new variants of the virus.’

Our mortality is relatively low in India and that, in the end, is saving the day,” said Aurnab Ghose, a biologist at the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research. Understanding why will require much more research, he said, and the answers probably will not emerge for “years to come.”

But we know the answers already, a combination of: Pre-existing coronavirus immunity, PCR Ct (cycle) thresholds, population age profile (India average age 29, UK 40, USA 38, Italy 46), population density and death registration process.

But experts think that other factors have helped to reduce India’s death rate, including its predominantly young population.

‘A fascinating perspective on the latitudinal differentiation of the epidemic, moving from north to south. Says a lot. Pretty similar mititgation approaches in all these states. Notice how as you go south, the curves get more spread out, similar number of total cases. The pattern in the southern states and the southwest in the summer was like this. Whatever it is about the conditions that favor transmission, it is a fairly narrow niche in the north and a wider one as you go south. If it were solely latitudinal, you would assume that total sunlight intensity is the key.’

In reality, the plan appears to dramatically limit finances to only those who totally support the radical green agenda.

Adherence, or not, to green policies, could determine whether an individual or a business is allowed access to finances, according the Great Reset architect, Klaus Schwab: “Governments led by enlightened leaders will make their stimulus packages conditional upon green commitments. They will, for example, provide more generous financial conditions for companies with low-carbon business models.”

I shall be imprisoned in a hotel when I return to the UK after leaving it perfectly legally. See link below. Is anyone else affected and fancy pooling/joining in with a legal action to contest hotel quarantine?

My plan is to demand to be arrested. So far as I know a stay at HMP is free and conditions are better than a Travelodge. Also a sucessful claim for unlawful arrest and imprisonment is about £2,000 a night so you can earn a few quid.

It is only a short step to start locking up lock down sceptics in psychiatric hospitals. Will Toby be top of the list?

Question. At the end of the quarantine peiod, what are they going to do if you refuse to pay. Keep you imprisoned indefintiely?

No doubt you will be forced to hand over a credit card when marched through the door or your new home, so phone the bank and tell them that one has been stolen and must be stopped. Refuse tosing any contract which says you agree to the charges and if they take you to court for non payment, they have nothing to counter the arguement that you were there against your will.

We need an economic crash now

At least, a quick one. People will not come to their senses otherwise. And Boris will never release lockdown – not until he is forced kicking and screaming. I have warned about this before. He will never do it. He will slowly release a few restrictions only to pile on more at the slightest hint of more cases. He is physiologically so effected by it that he is incapable of leading us into anything but a disastrous crash. Tory MPs wont dare to chuck him first. Therefore, in my view, a mini crash now would be better than a big one later. One that makes clear to people they are facing a tax bombshell, and each day of lockdown adds about £100 in extra tax for every single taxpayer, including those teachers, BBC reporters and government ministers who didn’t think that paying for it was anything remotely to do with them.

from the current lockdown, and drop in ‘infections’. ‘cases’, hospitalisations, etc – either;

children and people eating in well spaced out pubs and restaurants (as was in November/December) are the true vectors of transmission and lockdown saved the day,

or

the current virus (or viruses) has done its thing and are naturally dropping away, as historically happens at this time of year. And are also dwindling away in countries with little/no restrictions

clue – a simple honest compare of the data from the different US states that had restriction with and those that did not – gives the blatantly obvious answer that any halfwit, even a government corrupt scientist can see

So – in just about 2 weeks, can Boris cobble together some sort of believable plan about where to go next? I’m assuming for the sake of what’s left of my sanity that the Great Reset is a rabbit hole. I’m guessing at what’s next with nothing more than an appreciation of the low animal cunning of a political class that wants to escape this shitshow with their lives intact. Not a given. So how about the civil disobedience around the world gets slowly worse, and closer to home. The borders remain closed to whomsoever they wish (or not, as expedient). The vaccines haven’t been stolen by an even more desperate EU. The numbers are still going down with a bit of help from lateral flow. Then I can see them cutting and running and trying a bigger release sooner, rather than later, beforeMrs White Van Man goes ballistic at not being able to book Magaluf this year. They’re quite good at determining from where the greater threat to their political and actual arses might be coming, and I think that’s shifting. I can’t see any further procrastination being tolerated. If Boris has to go for health reasons with the thanks of a grateful nation 🤣 it’s the King is dead, long live the good King Richie.

, tried to tough it out, by denying that he’d posted multiple racist and revolting tweets. He now appears to have taken a different approach.

re the story ATL about the government taking charge of the NHS. This sentence in the report scares me

“Dozens of new management bodies will be given control over billions of pounds of taxpayers’ money.”

So yet more layers of management. I bet none of the existing bloated layers of management will be changed or cut . So more of the NHS budgets goes on admin. And the existing management bodies have been so successful in keeping a tight rein on the budgets.

Morning all – haven’t posted much as been occupied with work but I actually feel quite positive today – not that I think the madness is going to go away without a real fight – but that Johnson et al are being backed into a corner where they are going to have to admit this is forever – I don’t know whether the PCR amplification has been changed or not but the daily doom numbers are only going one way (and they can’t stop publishing them otherwise charade is revealed) and the attempts to find more cases look even more out of proportion – d
Door to door testing of a million people who don’t know they are ill !!

The constant changing of the “vaccine” goals is also very helpful and getting noticed.

The pub story (noting the hare running strategy) has unleashed massively negative comments in the Telegraph today – it is dawning on people that they are going to have to take their freedoms back not be given them.

I don’t for a moment think what’s coming is going to be pleasant but at least we are getting to the point where it is clear to the vast majority.

When the Rona first hit I thought, ‘Poor sod, he hasn’t been in the job long and he’s faced with this.’ That sentiment soon passed. I hope in his heart he is aware of the monstrous nature of his actions – or at least will be one day, and is reminded every day for the rest of his life what a cataclysmic failure he is/was as a Prime Minister. I want him to be hated and ridiculed for what he has done.

400085 ▶▶ Major Panic, replying to Hoppy Uniatz, 11, #425 of 1279 🔗

”Pub”

Pub is short for Public House. The British have been drinking ale in pubs (public houses or ale houses) since the bronze age serving traditional English ale which was made solely from fermented malt and distinctive to each ale house.

400121 ▶▶ FiatLux, replying to Hoppy Uniatz, 14, #426 of 1279 🔗

The only problem is that they won’t be “pubs” as we know them, especially the “wet-only” variety (something apparently not within the scope of Whitty’s knowledge as to their function). With all the screens, logging, masking, tracking and distancing etc., they will be dreary, uncongenial wine-list free teetotal restaurants, mostly of average quality, and the only liquor might be the sherry in the trifle.

As one who almost never eats out, let alone in pubs, but who frequently enjoys a visit to pubs I have drunk in for more than half a century, to drink, meet and talk with friends and acquaintances of similar standing, I eschewed the mockery of “open pubs” last year. Going in one seemed equivalent to a day visit to HMP Wormwood Scrubs, what with the logging, rules, furniture screwed to the floor and well apart, masked and visored warders and the rest.

Apart from the complete buggeration of their social functions, and assuming there are still some left by this “release”, driving hundreds, if not thousands of these out of business will also drive a dray and horses through the large sums the Exchequer got from them, but never will again. The usual concomitant of that will be a massive increase in duties and therefore prices, which should complete the extermination of most English pubs very nicely.

MICHAEL YEADON: “Robin. I’ve been cancelled by a series of systematic attacks. Two slanders on broadcast media (one was BBC, which I forced them to retract), several ‘hit pieces’, then two html hacks on Twitter, creating offensive fake tweets leading to account suspensions. I’ve had enough of that platform and closed the now redundant account.
I’ve also been fired from several biotech scientific advisory boards & consulting clients. Also suspended from groups I was helping from a scientific perspective (because I’m controversial, even toxic & potentially damaging to the cause).
Bottom line is ‘they’ have successfully cancelled my contribution.
I’ve been THE most qualified & persistent critic of U.K. government policy & this is why I’ve been relentlessly targeted. In private, I’m a gentle person, wholly unsuited & ill-equipped to handle this kind of nastiness. So deprived of a platform, I’ve nowhere to go for a while.

Indeed the likely root cause. Population control has been needed for decades. Unfortunately it is incompatible with capitalism and clashes with some very strong animal instincts. For anyone that thought about it for five minutes, it would have been obvious that the alternative to limiting breeding was either huge wars or epic crimes against humanity like the hell that we have incoming now.

And just to confirm, I am sure that the CO2 levels are a totally fraudulent distraction, again propagated by pseudo-science. The real issues are chopping down forests to farm for food, filling the land and oceans with rubbish, degrading the soils with intensive farming, polluting our breathable air with the actual nasty stuff that comes from combustion engines, exhausting our fuels and precious metals, fracking the water table, etc. It cannot be solved with bird-crunching turbines, lithium ion batteries, pretend recycling, heat pumps, solar panel farms, or any of the other nonsense they use to pretend that the issue is being resolved. It can only be solved by reducing population numbers. I’m not sure if that is what they are attempting now, or if this is another attempt at kicking the can down the road by replacing capitalism.

In countries like ours I’ve found it incredible that people were still being paid to have children ever since the 1970s. That being that the contraceptive pill and legal abortion have been available since then and so I’ve felt envious of children born since then (ie as I naively assumed both parents had decided to have them). Well I was wrong on that one – but I still certainly feel that anyone having children after that date should cover the costs themselves and not expect child benefit/etc from the rest of us – even if only the mother decided to have the child (rather than both parents – as it ought to be and I had naively assumed it would be). That is a relatively painless way to ensure that it’s unlikely anyone would have more than 2 children (except the wealthy – who do what they want anyway as we know) and I know that would mean some people desperate for children would stick to one or not have any at all – but it would be a sight better option than the current situation of having a go at the lot of us (which I do feel is part of what is happening at present).

Dangers of Water Fluoridation

The main fluoride chemical ( fluorosilicic acid ) that is added to water is not what most people would call a naturally occurring compound. It is a corrosive acid captured in the air pollution control devices of the phosphate fertilizer industry.

Fluoride is captured in air pollution control devices because fluoride gases are hazardous air pollutants that cause significant environmental harm. This captured fluoride acid is the most contaminated chemical added to public water supplies, and may impose additional risks to those presented by natural fluorides.

These risks include a possible cancer hazard from the acid’s elevated arsenic content, and a possible neurotoxic hazard from the acid’s ability–under some conditions–to increase the erosion of lead from old pipes.

I was interested in the article in the above list regarding climate change and lockdowns;
Are you ready for the climate lockdowns? I have felt for some while that climate change measures such as electric cars and no more fossil fuel central heating could only be done with huge cost, social disruption and the results are likely to be socially divisive i.e. you will need to be well off to have an electric car and a warm house. It does seem that the virus lockdown has been a good practice for the imposition of outrageous climate change measures that they previously would have doubted they could get away with.

This “you can open, but not serve beer” thing sounds like a way to stop financially supporting pubs (because they are allowed to open) but as they’re not allowed to sell beer, they’ll go bankrupt anyway.

is this a way to stop paying furlough to pub staff? If the gov removes the pub opening restrictions and simultaneously remove the furlough so the pub has to pay the full wages regardless of whether makes any revenue. So would mean more unemployment and pubs go out of business which is what their objective is seems.

Bottom of article “ This article were amended on 22 January 2021. Wetherspoon has not stated that it intends to buy up “smaller pubs” as the headline of the earlier version said. This was an error based on reported plans by the Redcat Pub Company. Neither did Wetherspoon’s recent statement to investors say it planned to buy pubs in general as the article said.

Feeling arsey today so put this to the DHSC about Wancock’s inetrview on TV yesterday:

In a TV interview on the 05th February 2021 the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care Matthew John David Hancock stated that over 30 000 people were in hospital “with covid”.

From the Department of Health and Social Care Reference FOI-1240596 and it stated that a positive PCR test means nothing medically. The actual quote:

“SARS-CoV-2 RNA means the RNA is present in that sample at that point in time. It does not mean that the patient has the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).” And “The result has to be taken into context of symptoms present.”

To corroborate the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care Matthew John David Hancock’s statement I request under the Freedom of Information legislation the following information:

Q1 – Did each and every one of the 30 000+ people in hospital “with covid” have the diagnosis confirmed by a follow-up test using a different method by having the actual virus on the swab that tested positive confirmed physically by isolating it as being SARS-CoV-2, by having the relevant symptoms and by having medical interventions such as a scan of the lungs to show the damage that SARS-CoV-2 causes?

Q2 – Or was it just a “positive test result” only with no further confirmation performed?

Q3 – Is each and every one of the 30 000+ in hospital “with covid” only and this is their only medical condition or are they undergoing treatment for other medical conditions?

Q4 – How many of the 30 000+ in hospital “with covid” are receiving treatment for their existing medical condition and are receiving NO treatment for “covid”?

Q5 – How many of the 30 000+ in hospital “with covid” have no symptoms?

Without this information being part of the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care Matthew John David Hancock ’s interview his statement that over “30 000 people were in hospital with covid” is meaningless and can be construed as either ignorance of the facts or deliberate misrepresentation of the truth.

The modellers’ baleful influence continues. Rather than note empirical studies-like the Jutland and US evidence which show NPI’s don’t work, they stick to model:-GIGO is forgotten. There was a distinguished professor who invited a brilliant young rsearcher to give a presentation before a large audience. At the end he stood up in front of everyone and said “Thank you for showing me that I have been wrong these 10 years.” This is a necessary spirit which is totally lacking among the modellers [I use Bayesian techniques but I’m not their prisoner]. Einstein had a large wpb for his mistakes. Ferguson et al.’s lack of humility is dangerous.

I fear that Lockdown opponents have not been ruthless enough and have been much too reasonable. Prof. Ferguson could have been labelled the ‘Mad Prof’ given his being consistently wrong by a factor of a thousand. The suggestion that he has Munchausen’s Syndrome By Proxy because he appears to have a saviour complex could have been stuck to him and the Imperial modellers. That’s playing dirty, but when did Ferguson ever play fair?

Maybe, just maybe the current chancellor is not yet playing by quite the same rules, hence the growing attacks in the media.

Further ONS evidence of false positives?

I was looking at the ONS publication

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Infection Survey: characteristics of people testing positive for COVID-19 in England, 27 January 2021

https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/healthandsocialcare/conditionsanddiseases/articles/coronaviruscovid19infectionsinthecommunityinengland/characteristicsofpeopletestingpositiveforcovid19inengland27january2021

What they seem to be saying is that with cycle threshold (Ct values) less than 30 only around 50% of people actually have any symptoms at all. I think this is referring to people who are in the infection survey.

But in the data (table 6a) attaching to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Infection Survey, UK: 5 February 2021
https://www.ons.gov.uk/releases/coronaviruscovid19infectionsurveyuk5february2021

It is clear that over half of those testing positive in England have a cycle threshold of over 32.2 in the latest week. By my understanding 32.2 is a point where there is over 4 times less virus (fragments or live virus) detectable than at 30.

Given that PCR should only be used to confirm a diagnosis of covid, the presence through a test of SARS-C0V-2 (the virus not the disease) without symptoms should not be classed as a covid case. Of course symptoms and a positive test don’t mean covid because the symptoms may have been caused by another virus, but it may be useful for diagnosis.

But at a very rough guess we might assume all those above a 32.2 cycle threshold have no symptoms at all that might be typical of covid caused by SARS-C0V-2 and half of those below 32.2 have symptoms. This would mean about 25% of those testing positive have any covid like symptoms.

In practice some above a cycle threshold threshold of 32.2 might have some symptoms, but then between 30 and 32.2 you would expect only a small fraction to have symptoms (given it is only 50% in those with a cycle threshold under 30), so there are some balancing errors there and overall 25% is probably an overstatement of those in a random sample who test positive who have covid like symptoms.

On a related point ONS stopped publishing their figure of new ‘infections’ after 14th November. This was probably the most useful figure by far in the ONS infection survey figure, because it was I believe based on the point at which someone first tested positive, so it avoided including people who test positive for a number of weeks or months despite not being infectious after perhaps the first week, if they are ever infectious at all.

Publishing new ‘infections’ shows more clearly when R had dropped below 1 before the lockdowns, whereas publishing the number testing positive hides that information because numbers are swelled by people testing positive week after week after week. It also inflates numbers, and that is obvious because their number of ‘new infections’ (or more accurately the weekly equivalent) was always a factor less than the number of total ‘infections’ reported. If you assume each person who tests positive is ‘infectious’ for one week, then the ratio of total ‘infections’ to ‘new infections’ should oscillate around 1, but for example in the last week that data was available in November it was nearly 4.

I’m afraid I have lost all confidence in the ONS data. I don’t believe they are fabricating data as such, but they are using techniques such as

a) publishing modelled data to hide the real raw data,
b) using misleading and biased wording to describe the data (their misuse of infections and at its most blatant for example they say something is increasing in every region and then illustrate that with a graph that suggests it isn’t increasing in every region)
c) deliberately not collecting or publishing the useful data that would show what was happening
d) using deliberately obscure techniques to make analysis difficult
e) publishing obviously inconsistent results without explanation

The coronavirus madness has resulted in the effective banning of sport to all except the professional elite. So this weekend as the Australian Open and the Six Nations are celebrated by the corporate media ordinary people are denied the right to join with others to participate in sporting activities. From a public health perspective this seems to be backwards. Lack of exercise it the major public health problem. Participation in sport encourages people to regularly engage in exercise. Such activity not only improves physical health, it improves emotional well being; it fosters positive social relationships and. community cohesion. Even the NHS recognises that physical activity as a miracle cure*. Yet the government has responded to the virus, allegedly on public health grounds, by making virtually all sport, for virtually everyone, illegal, the exact opposite of what a responsible policy maker would do.

Multiple stabbings in London:

https://metro.co.uk/2021/02/06/croydon-stabbings-one-dead-after-ten-knifed-in-london-borough-14032325/

My sources tell me that Government and SAGE officials are keen to find out if those responsible for these stabbings were safely distanced at the time and using ‘knife throwing’ techniques and had sanitised their hands and knives beforehand. These officials stress that stabbings not adhering to social distancing guidlines will not be tolerated.

The discussion surrounding no alcohol in pubs following from the top of the page needs realise this is a hobby-horse of Devi Sridhar.

Whoever is feeding the venom to Devi Sridhar that she then pukes forth onto the world I don’t know. About 10 or eleven years ago she wrote a paper about her requirement to get rid of alcohol. In the paper she calls for UN to act as it is the only body, she says, that can use international law to effect such a ban. She was about 28 yrs at the time of writing.

It’s an easy enough search to find the paper.

Anyone doubting this is a globalist plan need only to consider the rationale for banning off sales. You drink, you stop socially distancing – what kind of lemon is that.

A future pleasure will be to see Devi put on trial for crimes against humanity. HRH terms this pleasure before anyone chimes in pleasure is a sadistic word to use.

41) The Chemicals Used To Fluoridate Water Are Not Pharmaceutical Grade

Instead, they largely come from the wet scrubbing systems of the phosphate fertilizer industry. These chemicals (90% of which are sodium fluorosilicate and fluorosilicic acid ), are classified hazardous wastes contaminated withvarious impurities.

Recent testing by the National Sanitation Foundation suggest that the levels of arsenic in these silicon fluorides are relatively high (up to 1.6 ppb after dilution into public water) and of potential concern (NSF 2000 and Wang 2000). Arsenic is a known human carcinogen for which there is no safe level. This one contaminant alone could be increasing cancer rates–and unnecessarily so.

Take the 500k. That looks absolutely insane looking back on the last 12 months and all we now know about lockdowns and their relative effects once a virus has taken hold.

Someone smarter than me would have all sorts of empirical data, which include the fact that infections were peaking before lockdowns, to show mathematically how insane it is.

Then you’d back that up with comparative examples based on the empirical data we now have.

What kind of science is he conducting? I don’t recognise it and yet it seems to hold sway over my entire life.

The article written by the hospice nurse, was for me one of the most well written and accurate articles I have read ,putting the current events into perspective . It could have only been written by a highly intelligent person with decades of experience under their belt. They say wisdom comes with age.

We live in a world today of fear, sensationalism, and terror propaganda. We have lost our religious faith and have yet to find a replacement.

This article reminded me of two medical events of my experience. I recall having visited a patient in a care home with advanced dementia who was doubly incontinent and had been given antibiotics for their chest infection which were not effective. I then went to phone the NOK who lived 300 miles away to discuss what the best was for this person who was clearly dying. The NOK demanded I admit this patient to the DGH otherwise they would be complaining to the ombudsman , GMC, papers etc. Cowardly I gave in and the patient went to hospital where they died 24 hours later in a corridor. on a trolley after numerous blood tests and x rays.

I also recall an elderly revolving door patient who was seriously unwell and after being ” saved” again was sent home to live in their bed sit with carers 4 x a day to wash, dress move etc. They subsequently ended their own pain in a manner which left me with mental scars.

“MONKEY FLU”: VACCINE SIDE EFFECT?
Four days after receiving the Astra Zeneca vaccine my wife was feeling so unwell she spoke with a doctor (name unknown) at the surgery where we are both registered. The interaction she found congenial, and was initially amused when the doctor sought to reassure her. He said there was nothing for her to worry about: the side effects she had described indicated “monkey flu” derived from a constituent of the vaccine. I say “initially” because afterwards our reaction was: Hang On! No one told us this “monkey flu” might result; moreover there is nothing about it in the leaflet handed out prior to vaccination – nor online, so far as I can determine.

It has to be said again and again: a model is not evidence nor is it useful in any applicable way except if it is approaching an emulation where the inputs are tightly controlled. Even then it is treated with caution.

The problem with modelling is that is all too easy to add more and more tweaks or statistical methods when you should be looking at the quality of what goes in.

Errors propagate in both data and thinking.

I’ve written models myself in various physics fields.

Ferguson has been wrong all his career but not in the way you think. He produces orders of magnitude ranges for his projections which should immediately negate their use. A good prediction/projection is within the same magnitude range, often with a 20% variance.

Ferguson’s model outputs are like saying it will rain anywhere between 3 to 3600 days in the next 10 years. And thinks that’s useful.

To make matters worse then he goes on TV and talks up the more extreme cases without ever having a caveat to say this is all hypothetical and should not be taken as possibility. Without ever thinking about the ethics of that.

He is trying to bypass the standard processes that make lots of things safe to use.

Another key point is that those in the media and most to the public to be fair don’t know that a model’s outputs are not scientific fact. That you still have to do the hard stuff or measuring things and testing things.

But if you are of a certain persuasion, often those who hate ugly reality, a model is a dream machine and it helps you stay afloat on your own oxygen of delusion.

You can see this in the Twitter posts of the cogniscenti and the patronising idiocy of Hancock, Whitty and Valance.

In my mind I think the damage done to science now isn’t going to be restored. The climate models will be next to take a battering once the scales have been lifted.

Very interesting mhcp, we were just discussing something similar over lunch with the junior TTs. Both me and Mr TT are natural science graduates, with PhDs in an area of social science. I use qualitative datasets, whereas Mr TT uses quant datasets, and is an expert statistical and simulation modeler (he has advised government and major firms). We were discussing the ‘genius’ academics we know, and who are also known to governments. They are significantly better mathematicians and academics than we are, but both of us have pulled apart their major contributions based on the datasets and handling of evidence. Professor Ferguson, in our view, is not in the same camp as these ‘genius’ academics, and it is very easy to pull apart his modeling. Mr TT said back in March that Ferguson’s model – which he recreated in a single cell of an Excel spreadsheet by multiplying four variables together – would not pass muster for a PhD student. Ferguson is unimpressive by Oxford standards and is no more than a political actor in our opinion.

The second question is why the ONS differs so hugely from ZOE when they are modelling essentially the same thing – namely, Covid infections in the community.

Er .. NO – they aren’t modelling the same thing.

Yet this school epidemic simply doesn’t exist in the ZOE data. Is it because ZOE data are based on symptoms, whereas the ONS data are based on positive PCR tests (with Ct cycles possibly up to 45) so will not exclude false positives or those no longer sick or infectious?

Bingo!

Reading through the first MHRA adverse reaction report.

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-vaccine-adverse-reactions/coronavirus-vaccine-summary-of-yellow-card-reporting

Full of platitudes and homilies saying “nothing to see here guv”.

They say this:

The MHRA has received 107 UK reports of suspected ADRs to the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine in which the patient died shortly after vaccination, 34 reports for the Oxford University/AstraZeneca vaccine and 2 where the brand of vaccine was unspecified. The majority of these reports were in elderly people or people with underlying illness. Review of individual reports and patterns of reporting does not suggest the vaccine played a role in the death.

So 143 reported deaths but as we know if they had been within 28 or 60 days of a positive test they would d100% be a “covid death”.

But I found these comments interesting:

The majority of adverse reactions were mild to moderate in severity and usually resolved within a few days of vaccination. Adverse reactions reported after the second dose were milder and reported less frequently than after the first dose.

Adverse reactions were generally milder and reported less frequently in older adults (65 years and older) than in younger people.

This is the age group least likely to go online and fill in a report.

They also admitted mild side-effects were experienced by “at least” 1 in 10 people so it could be a lot more, they did not specify.

And how does this assumption work?

because most of the millions of people offered the vaccine in this early phase of a vaccination campaign are elderly and/or have underlying medical conditions, which increases the likelihood of unrelated illnesses occurring soon after vaccination.

And basically the “fuck ’em, they don’t matter comment:

A high proportion of people vaccinated in the vaccination campaign so far are very elderly, many of whom will also have pre-existing medical conditions. Older age and chronic underlying illnesses make it more likely that coincidental adverse events will occur, especially given the millions of people vaccinated. It is therefore important that we carefully review these reports to distinguish possible side effects from illness that would have occurred irrespective of vaccination.

Based on age-stratified all-cause mortality in England and Wales taken from the Office for National Statistics death registrations, several thousand deaths are expected to have occurred, naturally, within 7 days of the many millions of doses of vaccines administered so far, mostly in the elderly.

400472 ▶▶ godowneasy, replying to Awkward Git, 9, #789 of 1279 🔗

400489 ▶▶▶ redbirdpete, replying to godowneasy, 10, #790 of 1279 🔗

And of course the exact opposite logic to that which they use to inflate the number of Covid deaths.

400486 ▶▶ Freecumbria, replying to Awkward Git, 2, #791 of 1279 🔗

Someone seriously ill in hospital within 7 days of a natural death is unlikely to have a covid (experimental) vaccination, so you would expect less natural deaths in those vaccinated within 7 days of a vaccination than within the general population of the same age profile as the vacinees. It’s an invalid comparison.

Those seriously ill in hospital within 7 days of a natural death, are likely to be tested for covid, may test postive, and be recorded a a covid death however.

400668 ▶▶ RickH, replying to Awkward Git, 2, #792 of 1279 🔗

Essentially, anything from the MHRA can be ignored.

Their lack of opposition to absurdly rushed and curtailed vaccine trials said it all : they are an arm of government, not an independent regulator.

Team Toadmeister, add this to your list.
(Lord) 🤣 Charles Moore:

Throughout Covid, I have been neither a lockdown sceptic nor an ardent supporter. The question seems finely balanced to me. My doctor friend who reports from the front line constantly assists those with severe Covid, so I am struck by his latest dispatch. ‘Although lockdown has almost certainly averted a disaster this time around, I am concerned that its costs are not being counted… therefore I am slowly compiling examples of harm that I have witnessed.’ One such: ‘An 88-year-old man who has been married for 62 years to the girl next door. He came into hospital very frail. His wife had gone into a nursing home before the first lockdown with dementia. He could not see her because he was not allowed out, and no one was permitted into the home. Their few Zoom conversations didn’t work, due to their mutual deafness and her dementia. As she was dying in July, alone among strangers, he begged to be with her, but was not allowed. It broke his heart and he declined rapidly. When he got a letter inviting him for a vaccine, he said: “Why am I allowed to go out for a vaccine but not to see the woman I loved more than life itself?” He refused the vaccine and days later became very unwell with a urinary tract infection. He has now died. The lockdown intended to protect that man destroyed his life and made it meaningless.’ We should not ignore such examples.

This may have been said before, but it seems to me that the whole sorry situation we find ourselves in can be traced back to three significant events instigated by the WHO:

  1. Espousal of, and blind enthusiasm for, the CCP’s Lockdown strategies.
  2. Changing the way deaths from Covid-19 are tallied by appearing on the medical death certificate anywhere in Part 1 (a, b, or c).
  3. Changing the definition of herd immunity to that of only being possible through vaccine.

“China did it’ is a red herring.

Tedros’ connections to western globalist elites are what counts. Check out his history.

From his Wikipedia entry:

“As Minister of Health, Tedros was able to form a close relationship with prominent figures including former American president Bill Clinton and the Clinton Foundation and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. [19] In 2010 the US State Department named Ethiopia as one of the US Global Health Initiative Plus countries, providing the country with greater access to resources for public health projects. [1″

…..

“From 2008 until 2009, he was a member of the High Level Taskforce on Innovative International Financing for Health Systems, co-chaired by Gordon Brown and Robert Zoellick . [24]”

Chinese funding to WHO is miniscule compared to others.

You only need concern yourself with two facts to realise covid19 is a fraud.

  1. The virus hasn’t been isolated or purified, therefore doesn’t officially exist.
  2. The test used to confirm infection of a disease that doesn’t officially exist doesn’t work & is unfit for purpose.

That alone at any other time or case would be sufficient evidence in a court of law to secure a conviction.

In response to the Hospice Nurse’s perspective in the newsletter on 6th February. I wholeheartedly agree with them. We as a society have lost sight of death being an inevitable part of life – as Benjamin Franklin is often quoted ‘in this world nothing can be said to certain, except death and taxes’.
My mother’s birthday is in December. In previous years she has taken her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren out for lunch. The meal is her Christmas present to us, our company is her birthday present to herself. Last year (2020) this was not allowed. At the start of 2020 my mum was a fit healthy 85 year old. Lockdowns have destroyed her. She was devastated that she wouldn’t be able to celebrate as normal so my husband, my three 30 something children and I broke the ‘law’ and went to see her.
My mum is now physically (and mentally) frail yet she still has capacity. I was a nurse who worked in the NHS for nearly 40 years and my husband is a GP. We made every effort to ensure that my mum could make the decision about our visit herself (she was literally begging us to come). We explained fully the potential problems, she understood the information we provided, was able to retain it for long enough to make a decision, was able to weigh up the risks and benefits of that decision and able to communicate that decision to us all (and other family members). Some people may say it was an unwise decision but as an adult deemed to have mental capacity, making an unwise decision is her prerogative. We drove to see her. None of us had coughs or colds and although one of my sons did check ‘but what if we kill her? Don’t kill Granny the government says’ he too saw that the delight our visit gave her FAR FAR outweighed any potential risk. And if she had died, she would have died happy (and five years older than the average age of death in the UK) and we would have been glad to have seen her.
We took food, my daughter baked a birthday cake and we gave her home made gifts and sang to her. She hugged and thanked us all. Much more meaningful and (for her) manageable than a zoom conversation.
Its now February. She’s still alive, though getting daily more fearful. She is too scared to leave her house. Not in case she catches any viruses but because the constant propaganda has led her to believe that if she has a fall, a heart attack or a stroke she will not be allowed to go to hospital – as health care is now only for Covid patients. And if she were to be admitted she would die of loneliness within days refused visitors to protect the very institution supposedly caring for her.

You did a good thing for your mom! Keep breaking the law and give your mom a reason to stay healthy and hopeful. My grandmother died in July at almost 101, which is sad but by no means a tragedy. What was tragic was that her last 6 months of life were miserable and she told my mom during her last visit that she was ready to die. Try to give your mom reason to live and maybe plan another visit so she has something to look forward to.

400501 Major Panic, replying to Major Panic, 82, #826 of 1279 🔗

My thinking is, as a non expert, who has tried to understand what’s been going on over the last year, that;

There are at least two effective treatment drugs being used effectively by many reputable experienced doctors around the world, these cheap drugs have been around for decades and proven be completely safe when used properly. Even if you were sceptical about these treatments it is fair to say the doctors using them are first doing no harm.

These drugs and the doctors using them have had nothing but abuse from the authorities that authorise their use, in fact every attempt has been used to stop doctors using the treatments, even making it illegal.

Until recently there has been no ‘vaccine’ for covid,- and every effort has been made by ‘public health’ authorities, with no expense spared, to develop new vaccines. At the end of 2020 the first experimental vaccines were given emergency approval by regulators for mass population vaccination. My understanding is there cannot be emergency approval if there are effective treatments available.

So, from what I understand, the medical authorities have made every effort to prevent any possible treatments that may have caused problems for emergency approval for new and experimental vaccines.

it looks to me like the priority has not been saving lives, the priority has been promoting vaccines – and this has caused thousands of deaths of people who could otherwise have been treated.

Anybody involved in this pyramid of shit is guilt of premeditated mass murder, with no excuses – whatever there delusional justifications in their warped power hungry heads.

Slightly confusing story as the chap was outside in the street and they went inside Tesco to get the defribillator. But I thought all such defribillators were for public use and recorded in an online searchable database. It looks like the security chap wasn’t informed and probably didn’t even know what such a device was for. A shocking death whatever the circumstances.

There is one thing that has annoyed me lately – you all will probably think it trivial , but it does display some of the current hypocrisy – and that is the ads for supermarkets and other stores , such as furniture stores .
One minute we have the infamous “look them in the eyes” ad and then next to it ads from tesco or sainsburys showing unmasked , non SD- d actors playng customers looking for the latest bargains, mingling in the aisles with other unmasked actors . . Or in the case of sofa and bed stores the actors bouncing togeher on the furniture , unmasked and obviously not from the same bubble. And of course they are surrounded by sound and video technicians , store managers and film directors.
The ads give the impression of a normal pre covid scene , but should any person tempted by these ads try to enter the stores as unencumbered as in the ads is immediately at risk of being surrounded by the local SWAT team.
So the business model of say , Sainsburys is : -pay OUT lots and lots of money for air time and actors and for videos playing out an unmasked scenario. but a customer wanting to pay IN lots of moey by buying something is restricted , harassed, and often forced to stand out in the sleet until some arbitrary numbr of customers is in the store.
If you took that business model to Dragons Den , how many would be tempted to invest in it.

Astonishment and scorn regarding pubs with no beer is quite reasonable. However we should realise that this is a long term NHS aim. You may have noticed, in the past, the number of MSM reports on the numbers of hospital admissions for alcohol related problems; Friday nights in A&E with waiting areas full of drunks; household violence due to “excess” alcohol consumption, etc, etc.
I have no doubt that there is a degree of truth here, but (as usual) we mainly have anecdotes rather than facts.
The NHS (under the guise of “prevention is better than cure” ) has long been trying to abolish alcohol consumption and uses every opportunity to advance this agenda. Here we have yet another example of the pursuit of this aim. It is not just Devi Sridhar, it is an NHS mantra.

It is the same campaign strategy that was waged so successfully against tobacco and which would remove lung cancer forever. Yet it is still the third most frequent cancer with, according to Cancer Research UK, 1 in 13 UK males and 1 in 15 UK females diagnosed with lung cancer in their lifetime

“Global strategy to reduce harmful use of alcohol
For the first time, delegations from all 193 Member States of World Health Organization (WHO) reached consensus at the World Health Assembly on a global strategy to confront the harmful use of alcohol. Since 2008, WHO has been in the process of drafting a global strategy to reduce the harmful use of alcohol. On Friday 21 May 2010 the Sixty-third session of the World Health Assembly adopted by consensus resolution WHA63.13, which endorses the global strategy.

The harmful use of alcohol is a serious health burden, and it affects virtually all individuals on an international scale. Health problems from dangerous alcohol use arise in the form of acute and chronic conditions, and adverse social consequences are common when they are associated with alcohol consumption. Every year, the harmful use of alcohol kills 2.5 million people, including 320 000 young people between 15 and 29 years of age. It is the third leading risk factor for poor health globally, and harmful use of alcohol was responsible for almost 4% of all deaths in the world, according to the estimates for 2004.

The global strategy focuses on ten key areas of policy options and interventions at the national level and four priority areas for global action.”

Though i was speaking with a medium and she told me old Tom said if you die of the woo flu they’re not letting you into heaven. You have to quarantine in Limbo for ten days before St. Peter lets you near them gates and even then if you’ve died of the woo flu you caught from the vax then you’re not human anymore so you’re not getting in. Hell don’t want you because even the devil can’t be bothered with this pish anymore.

Thank you so much for publishing the letter from the nurse on 6th February. I too trained in the 1970’s. I absolutely agree with every word she has written and applaud her for putting down on paper what has been on my mind. She is bang on the button and I would love to speak with her.

I am thankful that my mother at 97 years of age is still living at home with some morning help and meals on wheels and so on. It is crazy to me that she can have care workers, meal deliveries, cleaner/ laundry helper, chiropodist and my sister doing her shopping in and out, but I am not to visit! She is bored, deprived of family visits and great grand children visits and has lost mobility during the last year. She is supposed to have her hearing aid adjusted with a home visit and the audiologist says “the government won’t let us do home visits”!!! So she has been managing for a year with her old hearing aids and the new ones sitting in a box with no date. She could go to the shop last autumn when it was briefly open but no home visits!! As a family we have always tried to have something for her to look forward to, she is very pragmatic and stoic on the whole. Having people in and out of the house has helped her keep in contact with the world other than through the TV screen!

Many of us nurses and healthcare professionals have been banging on about the loss of beds and the impact of demographic curve and major increases in the elderly, let alone a massive number of staff retiring around the same time. The impact of the European working time directives on, in my experience as a theatre sister, surgical training and the surgical teams (called firms) with the loss of continuity.

I have written to my MP several times, as I am sure many have about this insanity and how so many people have been scared literally witless’.

Thank you Toby and team and contributors to Lockdown Sceptics for allowing voices to be heard and for me to comment too, Helen

The BIS report while biased towards vaccination does make interesting reading and points some obvious stuff. First the vaccine will provide you with immunity after twelve weeks or until your antibodies have reached a certain level. While no one is 100% sure it should be assumed that you won’t be infectious in that time,but still vulnerable to covid. This explains why the government are frightened to open up society when their should be giving the vulnerable the second dose now. The other thing BIS report says if you get infected with covid you will be infectious, but after ten days you will have immunity. This says to me you should only be vaccinating the vulnerable as soon as possible and allowing the rest of us to get out and about. But no the government has decided to vaccinate everybody going for herd immunity which a couple of months ago they said didn’t exist, and criticised lockdown sceptics for saying such a thing. I work for nhs and everyone I know is getting vaccinated even though they not vulnerable but I won’t because I believe we all have immunity and believe it’s unfair for me to get vaccinated while the vulnerable must wait. I don’t know if I am immune to covid but do know that neither me nor my daughter’s got infected even though my wife got covid and we hugged her while she coughed on us. Please don’t try this if your vulnerable. Lastly do people remember those adverts telling you to take pain killers or Lemsip at the first sign of a cold or flu, and the next moment he or she is back at work. A couple of years ago research showed such medicines not only could prolong your cold but leave you infectious to everyone so I wonder is Lemsip the biggest spreader of covid now?

400707 ▶▶ mhcp, replying to Derek Toyne, 5, #956 of 1279 🔗

The adverts for products like Lemsip are irresponsible in my opinion. It’s misleading to suggest someone with flu could be ok to go to work after taking Lemsip. Even if they could (if you have real flu, you’re lucky to get out of bed, let alone go to work), they’d still be infectious. Ditto a cold. You’d just be spreading your virus everywhere.

I personally only use them to be able to sleep at night.
I don’t think Lemsip is spreading CV19, but i could be wrong.

400851 ▶▶▶ Derek Toyne, replying to LMS2, 1, #959 of 1279 🔗

Lemsip works by reducing your temperature good if it’s very high but your immune system usas high temperature to kill off infection.Lemsip interferes with the immune system so prolonging illness. Now if you go out after you’ve taken Lemsip you could be spreading unwittingly covid. Lastly try taking vitamin D there’s many videos out there showing how it’s linked to sleep.

I haven’t paid too much attention to all the stats and graphs recently but I wandered over to the UK Corona dashboard just now (pic below). The “cases” figure is diving down rapidly but I find the number of tests quite astonishing – 783,000 in one day, 4.5 million in a week. I guess this is part of the surge to track down mutants? Where on earth are they finding that many people? And since when have the tests been called “Virus tests”? I thought they were supposed to be looking for SARS-COV-2 – will any old virus now do?

Well cited.

It is an excellent article, giving insight into the media processes that have been so important in creating this shit-show.

Back in March, I well remember supporting the cancellation of rehearsals in the committee of the orchestra of which I was a member. I’d done my research and, on the basis of best available information, it seemed the best thing to do. In the same situation, I would do the same now.

But then more information began to emerge, coupled with a downgrading of Covid from being a ‘High Consequence’ disease. But the media narrative didn’t change. Quite the opposite. As the author of this argument writes :

“Part of the basic training of a journalist is that he never reports figures without meaningful reference. He must always provide comparisons, references and proportionalities so that the viewer / listener / reader can contextualise the information.”

And this is precisely what didn’t happen. The BBC, night after night, displayed appalling, decontextualsed journalism.

The output used exactly the same propaganda methods as had been used to promulgate the story of fictional antisemitism in the Labour Party, and in the wider establishment attack on Corbyn. Anyone with a grasp of the facts and propaganda methodology recognized it – whatever their political alignment.

Data analysis confirmed the gap between narrative and reality.

The rest is history. The same techniques were used to batter the population into abject fear of another myth.

This article is an excellent insight into this media corruption.

Or

(b) We are in the midst of a diabolical, planned global reset meticulously organised by the weirdly left-leaning WHO and the WEF – and facilitated by their marionettes in national governments.

A good capacity crowd in, filling all the tables. Standing room only at the lunchtime peak. Not a mask in sight, that I saw, except on the council goons. A couple of the latter poked their heads in mid-morning and retreated quickly, with no more presence until closing time (2pm), when a couple of different, overweight and thuggish-looking council goons came to hand a large, menacing envelope to Luc. The letter was not opened, but most likely contains the threatened “further action” by the regime.

Lots of pleasant conversation and all in all a nice reminder of what life is like in a healthy, free society.

I was more interested in the story next to it- “How Will We Heat Our Homes In Zero-Carbon Britain?”, by the vacuous patsy Harrabin, in which it is taken for granted that ZCB is both desirable and inevitable and that gas has no future in home heating, and in which we are told that we can expect inconvenience and increased expense in the cause of making our new transnational masters even wealthier and their bribed, overeducated shills in politics and the media feel good about themselves.

Norway shows how stupid a zerocarbon plan is for Uk. They have gone all electric with cars and houehold heating, because they have almost 100% hydro-electricity. So they now consume more peak demand than Sweden next door with a population 3 times the size. The UK would need 300GW of peak capacity, it currrently has a peak of about 50GW. Its utterly and completely impossible to close that gap with wind/solar. Harrabin and co must know this.
The only way this circle is closed is with very much reduced private car ownership and colder house heated by hydrogen replacing natural gas, which will cost £trillions.

Yes, down here on the Surrey/Hants border everyone was out and about, local places where people go to run/cycle/walk the dog were packed to the point where the car parks were full, and people were parking on verges, during normal times these places were never that packed.

400782 Derek Toyne, replying to Derek Toyne, 30, #1052 of 1279 🔗

This year I decided not to bother with the flu vaccine not because I am anti-vaxx but because of two pieces of information. First last year the BMJ did an article showing that flu vaccines while protecting you against last year’s flu viruses increased your vulnerability to respiratory infections like covid. The other piece of information was that cases of flu in Australia had decreased by 98%. A similar thing in the UK as occurred where cases are down 95% and deaths 90%. I believe this is all because lockdown was designed to reduce the transmission of flu and hopefully covid. This brings me to I why I will hold having the covid vaccine, first I believe most of us are already immune to covid due prior immunity and exposure to covid last year and cold viruses. That and taking 25ug vitamin D a day as prevented me catching covid off my wife who coughed every day onto me over ten days. Lastly I believe instead of taking a vaccine every year should we not look after our immunity through vitamin D and looking after one’s health.

ADE is an interesting topic, this is a pretty good article, and goes some way to confirming your caution. Though the article plays down the possibility of ADE from the current mRNA treatments, some of the comments are very interesting and counter this suggestion:

I used to believe this but everyone I speak to as stopped getting flu.

Some people believe where misdiagnosing flu as covid but the reduction in flu as been so massive and worldwide that something else is going on. That something else is lockdown which while reducing flu as failed to do so with covid.

Most of the victims of flu, like ‘covid’, are the elderly and/or the very frail. Without flu people might live longer but, as my 99 year old mother keeps asking me, what are they living longer for? Exactly. Either make life worth living for the elderly by letting them see friends, family or anyone familiar or accept that respiratory illnesses over 90 are what used to be called ‘dying of old age’ and, more controversially, the old man’s friend. We’re all going to die eventually but the point is how to live well before you do – and, with the current state we’re in, there’s not much quality living going on.

I looked at the latest NHS dashboard up-date, ‘covid’ cases in hospital are well down, deaths are nothing to elicit dramatic public health action and so why are they not, right now, announcing the end of the circus packing up the tent and going home?

In my view, Johnson may be incompetent, lazy and have no leadership or inspirational qualities but he can play politics. He has announced that the May local elections are going ahead, he wants to string this lockdown along until the last moment then set us free so that the conservatives will do well in those elections. He can then go to the G7 in Cornwall in June as the Global Covid Hero, who has conquered Covid and won an election, this will then pave the way to the UK Climate Change meeting in the Autumn when he will probably come down in a cloud from the mountain, like Moses, and be the Global superhero of covid and the climate.

I think I may have found some kryptonite for this whole charade. Everytime I mention Ivermectin and HCD, Vit C&D I get jumped on, by what it seems the 77th. To me it looks like they know, if people find out there is a prevention/cure/treatment for this flu then people will be less scared, angry with leaders for denying these drugs and people will be less willing to take the experimental poison knowing that once they get the flu with special name they can be treated and then also have immunity. People need to know about these drugs, we have to put pressure on everybody, from those in health care to the political scum. Play them at their own game and accuse them of murder.

Remember folks: Look in their eyes and tell them why they are not been given effective, well known cheap, over the counter drugs that will make them better.

400916 ▶▶ Lisa (formerly) from Toronto, replying to Andrew K, 14, #1166 of 1279 🔗

Exactly right. And now there are peer-reviewed studies supporting the use of these cheap, effective, and relatively safe medications. I keep thinking about Nick Rose and how he might have been treated when he first came down with symptoms. I think we should all have the following on hand: Vitamin D3 (4,000+ iu per day), Vitamin K2, Magnesium (theonate, malate or citrate), Zinc (8-30 mg), Vitamin C (500+ mg) and Quercetin. I take these every day, but it’s basically the at-home Zelenko protocol if you can’t access HCQ or Ivermectin. I implore everyone to have these easy-to-source supplements on hand and take them at the first sign of sickness or prophylactically. I don’t believe our doctors are treating with HCQ or Ivermectin here in Canada, so I’d rather prevent serious symptoms at home if possible. Nebulized hydrogen peroxide (food grade) can be administered at home as well (see link). We can’t trust the “experts” but my caveat is to do your own research if you’re on any medications such that any of these supplements could pose a problem.

I’ve read a lot about D and took your advice about the added K (the tablets have both). Scotland is dark, even in the summer, and this could be one reason why we have the world’s highest rate of multiple sclerosis.

Yes. There’s a direct connection.

I’m not a smoker. And that makes no difference, or shouldn’t do. Also, the “science” behind “passive smoking” was totally fraudulent. And even if it wasn’t, in a free society people should be allowed to estimate risks for themselves.

A bit like with lockdown, the problem was with the coercion. If people wanted smoke-free pubs restaurants, nightclubs etc, they were free to set them up (and there were a few around).

Looks like i’m gonna make myself unpopular here but seatbelt wearing, the pub smoking ban and reform of football terraces have all been progressive steps in my opinion.

I was no longer a smoker when the ban came in but still actually opposed it and favoured some sort of halfway house at the time. However, I would never reverse it back now. It’s not so much the passive smoking, but more the stink of my clothes and hair that I don’t miss.

Similarly, when I used to go to the football in the eighties as a kid, it was often ugly and occasionally terrifying. I’m not saying the modern day corporate-led experience is ideal, but I know which version I would prefer for my own kids.

As for the seatbelt-wearing, even if you want to argue it’s your own risk, RTAs involving fatalities actually take a serious amount of time to investigate, so reasonable measures that can minimize this have to be a good thing.

401001 ▶▶▶ Nessimmersion, replying to Draper233, 1, #1194 of 1279 🔗

Evidence that seatbelts have reduced RTA’s is where?
They have reduced the risk of a collision to the cars occupants, but due to risk tolerance and compensatory behaviours they have made sharing the road with cars more dangerous for other road users, cyclists, pedestrians etc.

401006 ▶▶▶▶ redbirdpete, replying to Nessimmersion, 4, #1195 of 1279 🔗

No, can’t agree with that. Compulsion may have been wrong, and I was affronted by it at the time, but not wearing a seatbelt is plain daft.

Anyone who thinks the wearing of seatbelts is a an infringement of liberty and comparable to what is happening now has really lost their sense of proportion, and probably their marbles.

… and whilst health fascism is a real problem, the smoking ban in pubs was totally reasonable. I was a smoker, but got to realize that the ban was necessary when it dawned on me what it inflicted on others.

Take your non-alcohol pubs and shove them up your arse Whitty et al. Where’s Al Capone when you need him?

Oh it’s-a lonesome away from your kindred and all
By the campfire at night we’ll hear the wild dingoes call
But there’s-a nothing so lonesome, morbid or drear
Than to stand in the bar of a pub with no beer

Now the publican’s anxious for the quota to come
And there’s a far away look on the face of the bum
The maid’s gone all cranky and the cook’s acting queer
Oh what a terrible place is a pub with no beer

Then the stockman rides up with his dry dusty throat
He breasts up to the bar and pulls a wad from his coat
But the smile on his face quickly turns to a sneer
As the barman says sadly the pub’s got no beer

Then the swaggie comes in smothered in dust and flies
He throws down his roll and rubs the sweat from his eyes
But when he is told, he says what’s this I hear
I’ve trudged fifty flamin’ miles to a pub with no beer

Now there’s a dog on the v’randa, for his master he waits
But the boss is inside drinking wine with his mates
He hurries for cover and he cringes in fear
It’s no place for a dog ’round a pub with no beer

And old Billy the blacksmith, the first time in his life
Why he’s gone home cold sober to his darling wife
He walks in the kitchen, she says you’re early Bill dear
But then he breaks down and tells her the pub’s got no beer

Oh it’s hard to believe that there’s customers still
But the money’s still tinkling in the old ancient till
The wine buffs are happy and I know they’re sincere
When they say they don’t care if the pub’s got no beer.

Re the neo temperance approach. Scotland is the proving ground. We live in a public health police state. Many comfortably off middle class people in government and public health, think the rabble are drinking too much. Reams of health statistics which dispense altogether with the concept of causation, associate it with violence and poverty. They see an opportunity in Covid just as environmentalists who want to shut down flying do. We should also be aware that as long as politicians have a covid condom to protect them they can ride out everything from Brexit balls ups, to Sturgeon and her consort’s attempt to frame political opponents. This is an worrying time for democracy. We need vigilance and resistance. Sadly as a Scottish libertarian socialist I can only see that coming from a section of the Tories or Sadly for me a UKIP sequel.

Yes, Scotland is going down a dark path and I’m very worried. I was hoping Sturgeon might need to resign due to the Salmond affair, but the parliamentary committee is largely toothless and cannot seem to compel people to provide evidence. If the ‘Dear Leader’ skates through this, she’ll probably take the SNP to a majority of seats in May, facing an even futher fragmented opposition. What’s most worrying, though, is her Svengali effect on most Scots, who seem to think she is the messiah. I just don’t understand how people can be so gullible (but then I’ve been saying this for 11 months now).

We need resistance, but I’m not sure how this will happen. I think it will soon get to the point here where people who are able to leave Scotland will do so, in large numbers. Even with its problems, England is preferable.

The Sun reporting yet another bad reaction to the vaccine. This time the first born son of Katie Price, and only 18 years old rushed to hospital…..time for some in the media to wake up this ongoing atrocity ?

Interesting that the 2nd half of the article is pointing to his underlying conditions… in case the worst happens.

So far only people aged 70 years old and over have been offered the vaccine.

And this, of course, is not true.

doctors are said to have confirmed his illness was a reaction to the vaccine.

We all know that masks are not good enough.

I recently thought I’d try and give up smoking again. I went to the local vape shop to find a notice saying “Click and collect only”

I knocked on the door (whilst saying “click click click”) and the kind shopkeeper came to the door.

I explained that I had not ordered anything online and went on to ask if he could help fix my old vape that I had not used since before last March (for some reason I started smoking real cigarettes again after last March – can’t think why – it was just after I ran out of fingernails that I’d not been biting for a while)

He kindly explained that he might get fined £6,000 for doing this (as the covid police had threatened him with this before), but sorted out my vape and also let me buy some extra nic shots for it.

Anyway, after having a few puffs, I thought hat maybe everyone should be vaping in public. This way, other people would be able to see which bits of air they should avoid breathing in.

I tried to see if my “mask” (a tartan scarf) stopped the vapour, but for some strange reason, it didn’t.

The only thing we can do now is force everyone to vape.

We could also make the vapour green like in those adverts. I know that mankind put a man on the moon before inventing suitcases with wheels on, but surely we can manage this!

400976 ▶▶ captainbeefheart, replying to captainbeefheart, 14, #1226 of 1279 🔗

Sorry, I didn’t actually finish my rant…

WHY THE FUCK is it OK to go to the shop everyday and buy a newspaper, or a pack of fags, but not go into a vape shop to try and stop smoking??????

ON WHAT PLANET does this make sense?????????

AAARGGGHHH..

Thanks for reading, feel better now.

I have been mixing my own for a while. Its very affordable, unlike eliquid you buy in vape shops. VPZ do good mail order too and are a generally good company with lots of choice.

401031 ▶▶ isobar, replying to captainbeefheart, 2, #1228 of 1279 🔗

Given that Public Health England have stated that vaping is 95% less risky than smoking, the closure of Vape Shops is lunacy. We are governed by morons!

The last 24 hours in France has seen new hospitalisations fall by 50% with more discharged than admitted, and new ICU patients also down by 50%. Continuing trend.
‘Cases’ still 20k because of mad ‘testing’, but almost all are asymptomatic.
School holidays started, so if this trend continues through them I think its likely some restrictions will ease later this month.
Its not a ‘lockdown’ at present but still curfew after 6pm and all bars/restaurants closed, and bloody masks in shops and some town centres.
Borders with EU/EEA open but need the dreaded PCR in 72 hrs negative; UK is a special hybrid case, not EU/EEA but not 3rd country either ( which are more or less closed except for 21 special reasons). Still no talk of idiotic ‘hotel quarantine’,thank god.
We will need PCRs now to return from Canaries, my route via Barcelona and train is now covered, so might as well fly back to Toulouse if nothing changes by end of March.

It is a lockdown. There is no “normal” life. Kids are force-masked in school. Going unmasked in the open air in any street or park in Paris or many other cities is illegal. Take the metro and there is endless public speaker Covid propaganda assaulting your ears without end. The atmosphere is oppressive, masked police snarling at you. You can’t board a plane to escape without showing a “covid-negative” test pass. Paris looks like a war-zone with ludicrous MASH-type tents erected outside every chemist shop for testing the sheeple.
It is illegal to leave your abode after sundown. No cafés, no restaurants, no pubs.

Police in Bacup have raided a speakeasy on an industrial estate. Along with A fully functioning bar it had snooker table, table football and a large tv. Apparently 10 people were fined for breaking covid rules but police were bewildered to find two sheep there also.
Anyone whose been to Bacup will wonder why there were only two.

It’s insane. The idea of being patriotic to a state and its religious high priests that could engage in that is baffling to me.

Add to that the laundries, the pedophilia, it’s unreal the level of sickness now evident in that era

401055 ▶▶▶▶▶ ekd, replying to BeBopRockSteady, #1248 of 1279 🔗

The regime that has been place in Ireland since 1921 is not “Ireland”. It was just that one ruling coterie was replaced by another… on reflection, it would probably have been better if the status quo has been maintained, by kidding the Irish into believing they were being ruled “by themselves” they let their guard down and now the whole country has gone to shit.

At 19 I remember being not just bereft but confused and saddened when my nana used to say ‘I’m glad I’ll be dead by then’ at whatever ‘new normal’ was being proposed. Also I remember seeing ‘A Man For All Seasons’ and wondering why he didn’t just ‘sign up’. Now I get it. Now I know what they both meant. Now ‘I hope I’m dead by then’ ‘cos I sure won’t accept the new normal/vaccine/bullshit.

Spoiler alert. lol. (I assume you are referring to Mantel’s fictionalised account.) I gobbled up Mantel’s first two but the doomladen final book has already stopped me twice. It feels to grim to read in these grim times. Just can’t read it.

But for as long as possible we’ve got to try to make a difference, no matter how small. There may be more of us than we think – and we may be needed.

401058 ▶▶▶ rockoman, replying to Banjones, 4, #1264 of 1279 🔗

I think there are many more of us than we think. The number of muzzle-wearers is misleading. I’m convinced that most of them just go along to get along, or to avoid fines.

I think we need to just reach some critical proportion.

Things are moving our way and I think that by late Spring the narrative will be under considerable pressure.

401059 ▶▶▶ Andrea Salford, replying to Banjones, 7, #1265 of 1279 🔗

For sure. I’m a long way from giving up, it actually fires me to stand firm and fight for what I believe.
When I say to people ‘lockdown of healthy law abiding people is criminal. Denying children their education and freedom is criminal’ I feel empowered, because they either get it and I’m in the majority or they don’t and I’m in the minority but either way I know we’re right and I’ll go down fighting.

401051 ▶▶ rockoman, replying to Andrea Salford, 3, #1266 of 1279 🔗

I remember reading as a child about reincarnation. I wondered why Buddhists and Hindus wanted to escape the endless cycle of rebirth. Surely, I thought, isn’t it great to be reincarnated ….

In the o,ay, More says again and again that he fervently wishes he could sign, but he can’t, It isn’t just conscience, it’s because to sign would be a betrayal of his whole being, a total spiritual death. He can’t do it.

401047 Banjones, replying to Banjones, 10, #1268 of 1279 🔗

I’d like to know what people think – so I’ll repeat this tomorrow But just in case anyone’s still up and compos mentis….

Everyone who gets jabbed should be told about the ‘yellow card’ and that they MUST report adverse reactions. As it is, people ARE having these reactions but maybe taking to their bed for a few hours (my neighbour, a couple of rellies, and an elderly friend) and when they recover are relieved, and they don’t ”make a fuss”. So there won’t be many reports at the moment from those who just struggle on.

And how fiendishly clever to begin the experiment with the oldies, those less likely to report symptoms, so that by the time it reaches the younger ones, more likely to whinge about not feeling too good, the damage will be done.

401054 ▶▶ Andrea Salford, replying to Banjones, 4, #1269 of 1279 🔗

My in laws and brother (NHS) have had the jab so far but knowing where I stand on matters I know they won’t report anything negative to me. However anecdotally so far I haven’t heard any bad experiences (70s & 50s) and loving them dearly I hope that remains the case. However I still won’t be having it and neither (to date) will my mum (82).

401068 ▶▶ Janette, replying to Banjones, #1270 of 1279 🔗

Yes very clever of them

401072 ▶▶ Dorian_Hawkmoon, replying to Banjones, #1271 of 1279 🔗

Me mentis is just about compost but yes, I agree. Shout it out. I don’t think anyone here should worry about repeating stuff. What matters is the goal.

401140 ▶▶ Victoria, replying to Banjones, #1272 of 1279 🔗

Agree. All adverse reactions must be reported

In Gemany a legal action by a group of lawyers has resulted in the release of Email correspondence, showing tht the government pressued scientists – in March – to produce modelling, which would deliver the justification for ‘preventative and repressive’ measures.

I believe something similar happened here.Sage didn’t advocate lockdown so they sent for someone with a history of exaggerated models,Ferguson.Boris made his loved ones will die speech on March 13 so the decision was made by then.Ferguson arrived at Downing St on the 16 with his apocalyptic model.
Lockdown was always a political decision,Ferguson admitted as much when he saw Italy and said we can get away with it.
