425398 Judy Watson, replying to Judy Watson, 13, #1 of 1244 🔗

Good morning to all the insomniacs out there.

425400 ▶▶ karenovirus, replying to Judy Watson, 2, #2 of 1244 🔗

Good morning Judy.

425405 ▶▶ Dobba, replying to Judy Watson, 1, #3 of 1244 🔗

425399 Richy_m_99, replying to Richy_m_99, 19, #4 of 1244 🔗

So Drakefords great reopening is we can meet three others in the pouring rain.

Whoopie do.

Damn, Judy beat me.

425401 ▶▶ Annie, replying to Richy_m_99, 58, #5 of 1244 🔗

I’d like to meet Dungford and his repulsive sidekick Gethin and my vile, crawling MP in the pouring rain and gales we’re having just now, in the dark, right on the edge of a two-hundred-foot cliff, and then tell them that they must step well away from me because they are not socially distancing, and wait for the smash-splash, and walk away rejoicing.

425404 ▶▶▶ Richy_m_99, replying to Annie, 10, #6 of 1244 🔗

I’m honoured to be in such fine company this morning. Good morning all.

425454 ▶▶▶ ElizaP, replying to Annie, 6, #7 of 1244 🔗

Well there are a couple of pathways right above a handy gorge right in St Dogmaels (village he formerly visited for that party). They are about 2′ wide and one of them is well-known for at least one persons dog having fallen off down the gorge. Me I tried one of those walks just the once and was inching along clinging to the side and vowing never to do that one again (though plenty of others seem to – eek!) and I think that one would do nicely…

425461 ▶▶▶▶ ElizaP, replying to ElizaP, 4, #8 of 1244 🔗

The happy thought arises too that that path is very tucked-away and hidden from sight. Definitely easy to see if there was any witnesses likely – 5 minutes = job done.

425482 ▶▶▶▶▶ Annie, replying to ElizaP, 1, #9 of 1244 🔗

I know St Dogmael’s well. Good place. Butthere are plenty more in Pembs. Gullies, zawns, overhangs, landslips, slippery slopes…

425610 ▶▶▶▶▶▶ Nigel Sherratt, replying to Annie, 2, #10 of 1244 🔗

Or even the Reichenbach Falls when we’re allowed to travel again without being threatened with 10 years in prison.

425510 ▶▶▶ Jo Dominich, replying to Annie, 17, #13 of 1244 🔗

What concerned me was, just as an afterthought following a further unwarranted 3 week extension to lockdown, he glibly said ‘then we can start the economy’. WTF? Does he think by magic the economy, the severely damaged economy can be restarted, as Tommy Cooper would say, ‘Just like that’? He said it as though it was no. 20 down his list of things to do. What a shitshow.

425761 ▶▶▶▶ Binra, replying to Jo Dominich, 16, #14 of 1244 🔗

The ‘Green Deal’ is a ‘novel’ economy – all set up a waiting to go.
Carney openly stated that businesses not complying WILL go bust.
This whole things is a top down restructuring of our world.
While in my view the virus is a fake narrative over the flue and cold season, it serves the establishment of pre-crime biotech interventions.
Nip life in the bud – unless of course it cows to ‘Herod’.

The old normal is not on offer, and is not here any more.
The ‘stakeholders’ are in process of reconditioning a slave caste’.
Most of whom are no longer required.
The process has been ongoing throughout our lives but is out in the open now.

426266 ▶▶▶ Ken Garoo, replying to Annie, #15 of 1244 🔗

Does this mean you are setting yourself up in the trip advisor business?

425407 ▶▶ karenovirus, replying to Richy_m_99, 54, #16 of 1244 🔗

Daily Mail commenters make it clear that people have been meeting friends and family both indoors and outdoors since lockdown .3 began.
Johnsons cabal live in cloud cuckoo land.

425408 ▶▶▶ Annie, replying to karenovirus, 27, #17 of 1244 🔗

True, and so does the Dungsquad, but cafés and everything else are still closed, until business owners grow some balls. How long, o Lord, how long?

425776 ▶▶▶ Binra, replying to karenovirus, 2, #18 of 1244 🔗

The MSM, the Corporate, and the PPP of financially and ‘deal’ captured governments and regulators, all use the political puppets as protected assets of such wealth as leverage. So from their view we have no legs to stand on and no means to do more than shout in the kettles they provide or contain us in.

425449 ▶▶ ElizaP, replying to Richy_m_99, 5, #19 of 1244 🔗

Yep….someone shoulda told him Wales is a very wet part of the country and some parts wetter than others. I know he does visit West Wales sometimes (ie wettest part of this area). I was at the same party as him in St Dogmaels back shortly before he became First Minister of this area. So – yep….I’ll cheerfully accompany him on some nearby walks – the muddiest I can find at the wettest day predicted and ensure he gets the worst bit to walk in and borrow someone’s rambunctious dog to ensure he gets leapt on in doggie excitement whilst on the ground.

425685 ▶▶ Spikedee1, replying to Richy_m_99, 3, #20 of 1244 🔗

Yes great sense from somewhere with no cases, bugger all deaths.

Was your final line to Judy a request or a statement? Lol

425402 Cecil B, replying to Cecil B, 103, #21 of 1244 🔗

Here is some science

There is not a single person alive, scientist or otherwise who claims to fully understand our immune system

Therefore the consequences of interfering with our immune system are unknown

425406 ▶▶ Liewe, replying to Cecil B, 40, #22 of 1244 🔗

Agreed, our immune system is ancient and impossibly complex. Governments and scientists understand just enough to be a danger to us, by interfering with natural human contact. One would think that the emergence of antibiotic resistance through overuse of antibiotics would make people stop and think, but no luck.

The overuse of antiseptics less community contact and community masking will come back to bite us.

Professor Vincent Racaniello’s virology lectures on youtube are fascinating – viruses are ancient, essential to life and ever changing.

425432 ▶▶ Freecumbria, replying to Cecil B, 16, #23 of 1244 🔗

Yes, important to realise that the immune system is a wonderfully complex system, honed to near perfection by evolution, and only disrupted by modern ways such as processed foods and clumsy medications.

I think this video of a deep dive into the immune system by Creon Levit from May 2020, and using the wonderful David Goodsell drawings from his Machinery of Life book, leaves you marvelling at the beauty and brilliance of the immune system

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7820q2eY-_k

(talk starts at 3 minutes)

Watch that and decide whether you want to mess with that.

425438 ▶▶▶ FerdIII, replying to Freecumbria, -4, #24 of 1244 🔗

Evolution? How would complexity evolve? If you did not have a complex immune system to start with you are dead. Simples. Shit happens is a philosophy not a science.

425448 ▶▶▶▶ Basileus, replying to FerdIII, -5, #25 of 1244 🔗

Yes the human organism is a complex array of chicken or egg conundrums only resolved by the doctrine of Creation.

425516 ▶▶▶▶▶ Ewan Duffy, replying to Basileus, 4, #26 of 1244 🔗

So where is your god now? I thought after the Great Flood, your god promised never to inflict something of that magnitude on the planet again?

425566 ▶▶▶▶▶▶ Julian, replying to Ewan Duffy, 9, #27 of 1244 🔗

I’ve never quite grasped why people get so overwrought about the business of Creation

Existence is fundamentally, intrinsically inexplicable, ineffable

You can go back as far as you want and explain more and more with science but you’ll never explain existence

FWIW I’m not religious myself

425456 ▶▶▶▶ Freecumbria, replying to FerdIII, 11, #28 of 1244 🔗

Evolution is based around the concept of natural selection whereby organisms with traits and genes, more beneficial for their environment, are more likely to reproduce and pass on their traits and genes to more offspring. The evolution of the immune system has followed the same process as individuals with more effective immune systems are likely to survive and pass on their immunity to their offspring

I made no comment on whether complexity evolved. I said the immune system has evolved over time and that the immune system was complex.

425538 ▶▶▶▶ mj, replying to FerdIII, 10, #29 of 1244 🔗

simples .. 3 billion years of competition between organisms

425666 ▶▶ Spikedee1, replying to Cecil B, 3, #30 of 1244 🔗

And don’t forget it twas aliens!!

426101 ▶▶ OKUK, replying to Cecil B, 4, #31 of 1244 🔗

I’d like to agree with you but there are plenty of scientists who should know better who are prepared to go on TV and claim to understand the immune system.Otherwise, your point stands! Any decent scientist knows what they don’t know – which in the case of viral spread and the immune system is a hell of a lot.

425409 Sarigan (Day 335 of lockdown), replying to Sarigan (Day 335 of lockdown), 39, #32 of 1244 🔗

Crystal Cruises, a luxury cruise line have also now stated that vaccines will be required to travel with with them. Hope they get the same treatment as Saga.

https://www.forbes.com/sites/suzannerowankelleher/2021/02/18/the-first-large-ship-cruise-line-announces-vaccine-requirement/

425412 ▶▶ sophie123, replying to Sarigan (Day 335 of lockdown), 61, #33 of 1244 🔗

I find the cruise vaccine nonsense somewhat ironic, given that cruises seem to be a hotbed of norovirus most years.

Cruising (to my non cruising eyes) is all about catching unpleasant viruses, as well as not being able to get away from people. Some kind of hideous hell hole.

425606 ▶▶▶ Occamsrazor, replying to sophie123, 10, #34 of 1244 🔗

Thank you, that made me laugh – and laughter is in short supply! I’ve always thought they were festering plague ships!

425908 ▶▶▶ LMS2, replying to sophie123, 5, #35 of 1244 🔗

That depends on the cruise line. A mega-ship with 6000 passengers is my idea of hell.
A smaller ship with 700 is very pleasant. But not with mandatory masks and vaccines.

426062 ▶▶▶ Tom in Scotland, replying to sophie123, 2, #36 of 1244 🔗

Exactly! I really don’t see the appeal. I can do an overnight ‘booze cruise’ and that’s about it. The constant stories of viruses making you sick (from both ends!) on ships, where you’re stuck for days and days with other people, really turned me off. No thanks!

They will be authors of their own demise.

425498 ▶▶▶ iane, replying to alw, 7, #38 of 1244 🔗

Well, I guess that is better than Bozo – who has been the author of the UK’s demise!

425824 ▶▶▶▶ ConstantBees, replying to iane, 1, #39 of 1244 🔗

Yes, it would be nice if the impact could be limited to those imposing the restriction.

425530 ▶▶ Bart Simpson, replying to Sarigan (Day 335 of lockdown), 8, #40 of 1244 🔗

Another one with a death wish.

What is it about these businesses? They seem desperate go under.

425705 ▶▶▶ Spikedee1, replying to Bart Simpson, 20, #41 of 1244 🔗

Nah its just virtue signalling. Its trying to show the silver tops that we are safe. But does getting a jab stop you getting or passing on the disease? No? So how is that making your cruise safer? Mind you as a cruiser I could not think of anything worse than going on a saga cruise with a load of covid zealots and curtain twitching moany old fuckers.

425672 ▶▶ Two-Six, replying to Sarigan (Day 335 of lockdown), 4, #42 of 1244 🔗

I wonder, do cruise ships make more “carbon” per passenger to get to say, New York than a passenger jet?

I get the feeling that the only way to travel will be by boat or even modern solar/sail boats in the near future and it will be sold to us as the only option cos climate change…

I would rather BBQ my balls than go on a cruise anyway. Much more likely to get Norovirus than the Rona, that’s for sure.

426009 ▶▶▶ LMS2, replying to Two-Six, 1, #43 of 1244 🔗

I’ve been on two cruises recently (2019) and thoroughly enjoyed both of them.
They were on a higher-class cruise line (featured on tv), where cleanliness was excellent, hand sanitizers and hand-washing stations everywhere, including no-touch automatic door opening for public toilets, to minimise cross infection.

426033 ▶▶▶▶ sophie123, replying to LMS2, 1, #44 of 1244 🔗

Yebbut what other holidays have hospital-esque precautions to minimise cross infections? What’s so awesome about a cruise that you’re happy to take a risk of cross-infection?

Each to their own, but having to ramp up infection control to those levels would dampen my holiday spirit, for sure.

426066 ▶▶▶▶▶ Tom in Scotland, replying to sophie123, 3, #45 of 1244 🔗

Exactly! I don’t see the appeal at all. I think you need to be into ‘safetyism’, which is responsible for much of our current situation. I couldn’t enjoy an experience that reminded me of a medical facility. It certainly would not be a holiday!

425410 Scotty87, replying to Scotty87, 94, #46 of 1244 🔗

As welcome as it is to see the courts actually doing something to rein in this government of tyrants, doing Hancock for the non-disclosure of contracts is like doing Hitler for traffic offences.

The Death Secretary’s bloody fingerprints are all over the greatest loss of quality life years since the war – yet in this case, it was a deliberate theft in order to pulverize the population into accepting experimental vaccines & immunity passports.

The gallows are too good for him, I’d throw him into a cage of rabid, starving Rottweilers.

425413 ▶▶ sophie123, replying to Scotty87, 33, #47 of 1244 🔗

Maybe it can be like Al Capone. Get him on the small stuff,

425465 ▶▶▶ Lindy, replying to sophie123, 12, #48 of 1244 🔗

Definitely, it was always financial misappropriation that resulted in all the truly awful managers being sacked

425415 ▶▶ Annie, replying to Scotty87, 28, #49 of 1244 🔗

Rottweilers are nice dogs unless spoiled by their owners. Surely they deserve better food than that sort of trash?

425419 ▶▶▶ Scotty87, replying to Annie, 9, #50 of 1244 🔗

They would have to be immediately put down after consuming such poisonous flesh, maybe we can posthumously award them all a Dickin Medal for their service?

425452 ▶▶ FiatLux, replying to Scotty87, 6, #55 of 1244 🔗

Great idea, but what will happen is that he’ll get a K, some baubles with a “BE” in the title and probably more, “the thanks of a grateful nation”, and sooner or later, a seat in the Lords, where, as with other former Suffolk MPs, he can busy himself making yet more money on the back of all this. Other sinecures will doubtless also become available to him.
I haven’t been there for a while, but I don’t think there are enough lamp-posts in the vicinity of the Houses of Parliament to accommodate all the criminals responsible.

425715 ▶▶ Spikedee1, replying to Scotty87, 6, #58 of 1244 🔗

Yes but don’t forget they got Al Capone for tax evasion. Not all the other shit he did. The courts would not put the objection to lockdown and its associated harms to the high Court. So this is the only attack left. If it sees the slimy fucker having to answer difficult questions rather than the soft questions he is asked by the msm that would be good. Squirm mf Squirm!!

425411 Londo Mollari, replying to Londo Mollari, 20, #59 of 1244 🔗

Official US sources like the FDA and CDC describe the vaccines as experimental. I haven’t seen any similar language by UK authorities. In fact, Walesonline is going mental about what it describes as a “dangerous leaflet” being delivered to homes describing the vaccines in just those terms. Can anyone help me with respect to how these so-called vaccines are being described by official sources here in Prison Island?

425416 ▶▶▶ Londo Mollari, replying to sophie123, 2, #61 of 1244 🔗

Thank you. The language is not quite as explicit as the American.

we are generally less litigious here, is the reason I guess

425420 ▶▶ Steve Martindale, replying to Londo Mollari, 4, #64 of 1244 🔗

Is there a simple non specialist explanation of these vaccines, what they are and how they work? I may well be wrong but my understanding is that we have;

  1. nRNA vaccines Pfizer & Moderna; very experimental gene therapy approach.
  2. Adeno-virus vaccines, Astro-Zeneca, Johnson/Johnson, Russian Sputnik, Chinese???
  3. Attenuated live virus; still in development but possibly available as a nasal spray?

As I say I am only putting together the bits and pieces I have picked up, am I anywhere on the right lines?

Killing millions of people with a vax and continued lockdown = contrats from the great reset technocrats

425422 Laurence, replying to Laurence, 240, #71 of 1244 🔗

The government has taken away the value and meaning in the lives of all of us for nearly a year, and it is for no reason.

The fact that this has happened all over the world doesn’t make it more acceptable or more excusable – they have committed a terrible offence against the people of this country, against the whole of humanity, and this will not and cannot be forgotten. Boris, Matt, Kier, Whitty, Vallance, Biden, Cuomo, Fauci, the New York Times, the BBC – they are all complicit, let this never be forgotten.

As I see my 8 year old son spend yet another day on his laptop when he should be out at his friends’ houses playing, or they should be here – how can we ever begin to see these people as anything other than the disgrace to humankind, weak excuses for what we should be. When I see millions of people laid off or furloughed because Boris can’t or doesn’t assess risks properly, this is not normal negligence of a political leader, this is of a whole different order. And he doesn’t get a ‘get out of jail free’ because Biden or Macron or Merkel has done the same. They all equally have the devastation of the lives of millions on their hands. When they wash them, as I’m sure they do many times, they cannot wash off the stench of these devastated lives.

Nearly every one of them a middle class, middle to high income, middle age male, creating rules destroying the lives of the young and the poor and the women.

We knew, I knew, back in March last year that, whatever we did  this was going to kill at the extreme maximum no more than are killed with deaths involving flu and pneumonia, and around 4,500 would be under 60. Many people on this site knew the same, and we were right! But the bloated egos of Ferguson and others came out with idiotic figures and refused to back down in the face of reality.

We look at Sweden and we see the same pattern of deaths as the UK, we see in Sweden around 1% excess deaths in 2020 compared to 2017 (when age and population are taken into account). Why did we not do what they did ?

We look at Ron deSantis in Florida who removed all restrictions, and the outcome was the same as California

We look at Brazil and the outcome is the same as Peru.

Why can’t the rest of the world see the self – evident truth.

Why are even our leading statisticians falling for the hysteria and forgetting their academic discipline.

Let us not forget that only 1,000 people under 50 died last year in the whole of England and Wales because of Covid. Let us not forget that, even in the over 90s, the chance of dying last year from Covid was around 1 in 50, including all the people killed by the government taking the sick out of hospitals and infecting our residential homes, compared to their 1 in 4 chance of dying any year from any cause. Let us not forget that ultimately this is not much worse than flu despite all the lies we have been told.

The nonsense continues, our kids can’t go to school, we can’t go to restaurants or pubs or on holiday, millions have lost their jobs, people are not being normal people. But a few middle age middle class men are happy and self satisfied.

It is right to be angry!

‘Is it right to be angry’? Not angry no. Flocking Furious, ready to revolt, injure, maim. Angry was last March 15th 2020. Ready to string up Wancock, Shitty and Doris on Tyburn is where the sheeple need to be now.

SAGE et al are not doctors. They are Quackademics, ruining your world.

When has a quackademic been acquainted with reality? Never. It is a short hop from a ‘Professor’ to a Totalitarian. See Hegel for more info. I have them in my family. Stupid as doors but more arrogant that a Libtard Doris-chum from Oxford.

Fake data, fake models, fake stats, that the Sheeple have no clue about and blindly support this CV Fascism, with ever-changing objectives, goalposts, and now mandatory testing and vaxx’s coming – for a god damn flu in which 99.7% nicely survive.

I fully agree with what you say, but please stop citing Brazil as a non-lockdown country. Of the 26 states and one federal district only TWO are not locked down. I know Wikipedia lists Brazil as non lock-down but it also qualifies that by listing the only two states that aren’t restricted. The 25 other states have lock-down of varying degrees, and in many cases for longer than the UK.

425740 ▶▶ Spikedee1, replying to Laurence, 37, #81 of 1244 🔗

Well said. Is it also that the better educated and people with better jobs will not see the corruption in the government because, well basically, I am fine! My wife has been wfh for a year. When I talk about vaccine abuse or anything about covid bullshit she just puts her la la ears on. I can’t change anything, so why get angry? Lots of us come on here to express feelings we cannot convey to our friends or family. We know, if we go all red pill on them we will lose our friends. Thanks for being here fellow lockdown haters.

Nah, go red pill on them anyway!! I did, and whilst my family back in the UK won’t swap anything but anodyne pleasantries with me any more (all firm believers) my circle of friends here has improved dramatically. Some chose to cut of all contact me, but they have been replaced by other “rebels”, so we can discuss and dissect the bullshit freely over a beer or three 🙂

I don’t understand why people can’t see that Boris is a dictator and a tyrant. Why do people continue to follow his rules….I don’t. There is no opposition and we need more people to wake up.

The vaccine is the cause of the recent spike in deaths and it will continue until the vaccinations stop. No excess deaths from may to dec20.

He wants the uk population to be 10m because of his global warming technocracy bollocks. He’s dad has said this in an interview, why don’t people pay more attention to this.

The outcome was better than California. The death rate per capita in Florida is better than that of California, despite having an older population.

Gavin Newsome is facing a recall petition.
Ron DeSantis is being touted as a potential presidential candidate, although he’s reportedly not interested in running. He can do more as governor or senator of Florida than he can as president.

Why can’t we have a leader like DeSantis instead of Boris Bunter?

DeSantis is correct.

One thing this situation has revealed is how much power the governors of US states hold.

This was shown by states like NY and CA, which told Trump to go pound sand until he was out of office.

Maybe your right I noticed this discrepancy when the government claimed 2% of the population had covid about a month or so back.
The ZOE covid tracker app claimed only 1% but which ever way you look at it the numbers are not about truth but about frightening people. To me it would be far more truthful to say 99.88% are covid free but then people would say why are we in lockdown when so few are infected.

I think they are using the idiotic number from the covid statistics that is total cases. This is currently at 4.1 million. So this is from March. What has nobody ever got fucking better? If you take their bullshit figure’s go back 14 days this is probably your current sick list. (I know the numbers are bollocks i am just playing their game) so going back 14 days gives us 178k. In 66 million people. Or .27% of the country. And we are in lockdown for this?

Interestingly looking at the numbers we were at 60k positives the beginning of the year we are now at 11k. But whats really interesting is that they are still doing 600k tests a day on average in Feb but are only finding 2% positive. Considering the FPR on this many test is about 2% I think its safe to say covid is totally gone. Oh dear is this why they need to test the kids to get the numbers up?

After reading a teaser article in the Telegraph, suggesting that we might be able to meet our families outdoors for Easter (why thank you Mr Boris) I wrote this.

Roadmap Hope

I’ve heard the roadmap rumours,
I’m hoping they are true,
My family just might see me,
They don’t think like me and you.

If Boris tells them stay at home,
Then that’s what they will to do,
They’ve heard the propaganda,
And believed it to be true.

It’s left me broken-hearted,
To watch them fade away,
They follow all the rules,
Their new cult they must obey.

They follow all the leaders,
For the NHS they cheer,
Their masks, their safety blankets,
Help them handle all they fear.

They say I’m just so selfish,
I don’t care who I might kill,
That I would rather have my freedom,
And make other people ill.

It’s people just like me,
Who are causing this lockdown
If I’d only choose to follow rules,
We wouldn’t be here now.

I’ve tried to help them understand,
But my words fall on deaf ears,
The problem is I scare them,
My words fulfil their fears.

It’s all my fault they tell me,
I hear their accusations,
I’ve had to give up sharing,
I can’t do those conversations.

I know that I could walk away,
But love keeps holding on,
Division is the Devil’s game,
And I won’t play along.

I’m holding out a hope,
That one day they’ll awake,
Their blind eyes will be opened,
And they’ll see that it’s all fake.

I really do understand, it’s so frustrating and some days it just makes me cry. I think my faith helps, because as a Christian I know I am forgiven for all the stuff I’ve done wrong, that helps me to forgive others. I feel that until I’ve walked a day in their shoes, listened to the same propaganda, had the same conversations as them and been born with their personalities then how can I judge them by my standards? We all fall short of perfection and thankfully others love me when I do or say the wrong thing. What I do know is that love is better than hate and unity better than division and so I choose love, but it is so hard.

You, you call me danger
Why, why I wear a mask
You, you scream in anger
For the question that I ask.

But don’t drag me down,
Don’t give me misery
Don’t wear me down with darkness,
I am free, I am free, I am free

You, you say my freedom,
Is, is all down to you
You, you lock me into prison
When you know it isn’t true.

Chorus,

Bridge
Now you turn off the light
Take away my hope,
Way out of this madness
Is at the end of a rope.

You, you say its the science,
Is, is that really fact,
You, you demand obedience,
I have no power to retract!

That’s a powerful song. It is full of the hopeless feelings brought about by our current situation. Without wishing to diminish any of your words, I thought of an alternative to the concept of suicide in the bridge, just as my own expression of hope, not a suggestion that you should change your words in any way.

Now you turn off the light
Take away my hope,
Way out of this madness
Only God can help me cope.

‘Now you turn away from light

First verse of the song:

Sometmes I just feel these crazy dreams inside

People hiding behind uniforms, scream aloud and shout tonight

Point your fingers and question why

Scared, scared people won’t smile, I don’t know …

The song ends:

Reality, or just lies? (maybe tomorrow)

Be good now, and don’t do nothing (maybe tomorrow)

Bang, bang, bang, bang, you’re dead

Many of the songs suggested for theme tunes here are suitable only for their titles – but the whole theme of this one could have been written for today. It never did anything (back in 1980), and I’d largely forgotten about it until I saw it in today’s list. Far better than anything The Jam ever did, imv.

Oh I know why. LDS has always supported vaxx’ and Professor Shitty (a wonderful doctor LDS claims, he is not a Dr. he is lectern spouting moron) who is against the Barrington Declaration and a vaxx-ist.

LDS late 2020: ‘vaxx’s are the way out of this..’

And now? As the conspiracy theorists pointed out they don’t stop transmission, they might reduce symptoms for a small % and they injure and kill.

425441 ▶▶ TJN, replying to FerdIII, 20, #138 of 1244 🔗

I know, LDS doesn’t appear to want to address the vaccine question. In particular, it should be discussing:

1. Whether they are safe.
2. Whether people are in actuality giving informed consent when they are given them – or whether large numbers of people are effectively being duped.
3. The abomination of even suggesting mandation.
4. The possible links between the perpetrators of lockdown and the vaccine producers.

But addressing these would mean edgy, risky journalism.

Having said this, I thought today’s update was pretty good. I like the variation of the authors’ different styles – in keeping with which a few more days by Toby would be good, as he has an inimitable humour which can be very powerful.

425511 ▶▶▶ Derek Toyne, replying to TJN, 12, #139 of 1244 🔗

I assume LDS is lockdown sceptics so here goes every drug or vaccine is not 100% effective or safe to believe or demand otherwise is not living in the real world. I believe vaccines should only be given to those who need it like those with impaired immunity such as the elderly and sick and those who want it. Why government and employer’s are talking about vaccine passports is illogical because a vaccine is not a shield but better weapons for fighting a virus. So you can still get infected and be infectious to your fellow humans all a vaccine does is stop you getting severe pneumonia. The lockdown as interfered with the natural process of getting infected recovery and immune to covid. So the government as not only robbed a year of life but giving us back artificial immunity which was stolen by not allowing people to develop immunity naturally.

425537 ▶▶▶▶ Ewan Duffy, replying to Derek Toyne, 10, #140 of 1244 🔗

I agree the covid vaccine is like the flu vaccine you can still catch the virus but your symptoms will be a whole better. This will lead to fewer people in hospital and deaths. Lastly why isn’t anybody talking about why the vast majority of us don’t need a vaccine because we all have immunity.

425937 ▶▶▶▶ ConstantBees, replying to Derek Toyne, 1, #142 of 1244 🔗

Your post just put me in mind of the mandatory vaccines for childhood illnesses, measles and such. If the measles vaccine didn’t prevent children from getting or transmitting measles, would there be as much of an uproar in schools about requiring childhood immunisations? I don’t have kids myself, so I may be missing something here. Personally, I had measles when I was a kid so I’m immune anyway.

425467 ▶▶ ElizaP, replying to FerdIII, 8, #143 of 1244 🔗

Valid point if so. I’d not clicked to not noticing any reports of vax injuries and deaths on here. Not sure whether there’s been any reports of employees blackmailed into having the vax against their will by employers either??? Those reports are coming out already and some people are clearly suffering very badly from the vax – and that’s before most have had the 2nd one. Looks like anyone that can find a way to stick up these missing vax injury/death reports needs to put them up in comments – to ensure they do go up here.

I think we have to be very wary of anyone who says…yes lets get out of lockdown but yes lets keep the vaccines and keep the masks and yes lets keep the anti social distancing. Its a bit like saying yes lets get rid of communist central planning but yes lets keep the Gulags and the KGB and the re education camps.

The whole lot are intricately mixed up together and they all need rejecting on mass.

ATL have either been cowardly about the ‘vaccine’ or they are enthusiasts for it which is even worse.

I used the inverted commas on the word as there are many medical experts who argue it is not a vaccine at all its a treatment. Vaccines provide immunity to the vaccinated and prevent them transmitting it to others. This ‘vaccine’ does neither so how is it one? Chemotherapy is a treatment for cancer but no one in their right mind suggests it should be mandatory for all including the vast majority of the population who do not have cancer.

We need a more comprehensive understanding of this whole attack on humanity than we are ever going to get from ATL. That requires moving beyond ‘government mistakes and incompetence’.

I thought that it was brilliant AND, if you take it to its logical conclusion, not only can it be used in argument against any company which refuses to provide a service unless you have the vaxx does it not also deliver a massive blow to the whole vaccine passport case – to require someone to have a vaccine passport by extension requires them to have the vaccine ergo they are practising medicine without a licence and putting people at risk of all the harms outlined in the munro hall letter in breach of the nuremberg code and the council of europe resolution. It gave me a tiny bit of hope.

425443 Poppy, replying to Poppy, 160, #152 of 1244 🔗

In some ways, it is not only the lockdown and vaccine-pushing that makes me feel frustrated, angry, and despondent, but how my own family have reacted to it.

I had a telephone conversation with my mum (mid-fifties, no underlying conditions) last night, and I told her that I probably wouldn’t be having the vaccine. She then said ‘Well, people need to play their part, if they want to get out of lockdown then they have to get the vaccine!’ Interesting that she framed it in terms of getting out of restrictions rather than in terms of any health benefit or protection.

I then calmly explained to her that I am a healthy 22-year-old to whom Covid poses virtually zero risk of serious illness or death, so why would I take an unknown risk of having unlicensed, experimental medical treatment when I don’t need it? I also explained to her that coercing people to have medical treatment just to participate in society and avoid becoming second-class citizens was a violation of informed and free consent. All perfectly reasonable, I said nothing that would be traditionally classed as a ‘conspiracy theory’, but instead I just got back, ‘Stop reading all that rubbish online’. Likewise to her, stop watching all the rubbish the MSM
spews out on an hourly basis.

I know I shouldn’t be angry at her, I know the government are trying its utmost to divide people, but there is something so exquisitely awful and disturbing at seeing your own flesh and blood robotically parroting the government line and thinking it’s acceptable for fundamental rights to be conditional upon taking a medical treatment whose benefits are not entirely clear. All this, in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary. It is completely insane, and as someone on here said yesterday, it’s as if previously moderate people have just been lobotomised.

I really think that a lot of people know deep down that this is a total mess and has all been for nothing, but because they have invested almost a year of their lives in the lockdown ideology, believing that what they’re doing is for the greater good, that they’ll take any old medical treatment, regardless of the risks, just to feel as if it was all worth it.

That’s really appalling Poppy and its not only confined to this country.

Funny how they see fit to preach from their priviledged positions.

And this is the crux of the matter, many people deep down realised they’ve been had but rather than to admit that they’ve swallowed a lie, continue to be complicit in the government’s lies and do their dirty work for them.

What gets me, is if they believe this is a real vaccine, that is they achieve immunity, and all the vulnerable people are vaccinated, why are they worried that others are not vaccinated, if in their head they are protected. They always like to use the yellow fever example, so you take a real vaccine before entering certain African countries and it is of no concern the level of vaccinated in the populous because you are protected. Guess it is just like mask wearing, if it so damned effective why do I need to wear one and those who are soooo scared, just wear 2 and leave me be.

This is more common than you think.

Just take it as a given that the government is right, hmmm just tell them if they remember thalidomide.
I had a similar conversation with my brother recently who is getting da vaxx next week and I got on my soap box and told him stuff the msm doesn’t and sent him some reputable sources re adverse reactions and deaths etc. It got him thinking but i reckon he’ll still get it. These adverse reactions are all very well on a piece of paper as happening to other people, but if it happens to him he’d be laughing on the other side of his face if he got a severe reaction, especially bells palsy!

Exactly, I feel like older generations especially grew up in a time when they could trust the government to act in their best interests, but how far standards have fallen.

Maybe you should be angry at her Poppy…she was very disrespectful to you suggesting you should ‘play your part’ in getting out of lockdown when you never wanted to get into it. Surely thats her job as she no doubt supported it in the first place. She was also very insulting about the ‘rubbish you read online’ as opposed to the MSN fully paid for by government and global billionaires.

My mother is dead now but would have been just the same as yours. Its very frustrating and it makes you lose faith in them and doubt their intelligence. I do feel for you. Maybe its best to just never discuss it with her…I think thats the approach I would have had to take or relations would have frayed too far.

I have tried to explain that to people – they just don’t get it and are still determined to get the vaxx – they see it as their passport out of this lockdown mess – they don’t seem to see that by being so keen to get it that it is just another ticket into the mess that will be our future and they have voluntarily bought it.

425614 ▶▶ Sarah N, replying to Poppy, 18, #182 of 1244 🔗

Poppy, well said and interesting to read your comment as I sort of, have the opposite issue. I am a mid 50’s very healthy lady, and my daughter is exactly your age. While she knows my views and agrees with most of them, she wears a mask as she ‘does not want any hassle’, and I have an utterly nightmarish feeling that she will take the vaccine (she knows my views on this also – untested in long term, and not needed for the vast majority of people). I know for certain that she will not take it because she needs it, rather, she will take it to ‘get out of lockdown’. So she isn’t so blind, shall we say, as your mum, but she will still conform to the nonsense to try to get her life back. It’s utterly depressing. My mum, who is 78, is also sceptical like me but is also very pro-vax, so she has had her first shot and does think all should have it (but that is more based on her love of vaccines than Covid). Your last paragraph was very insightful, and I tend to agree with you.

425733 ▶▶ Two-Six, replying to Poppy, 15, #183 of 1244 🔗

I really do find it strange to say the least that your mum wants you to get the jab considering how it might affect your health and especially your fertility.

It really is very un-natural for a mother to actually want something for her child that might in any way, how ever small cause harm.

It is an utter perversion of humanity and its all down to THE PSY-OP.

Really it’s terrible. Obviously resist getting the jab, for you it’s pointless and it will be a much bigger risk to you than not getting it. Protecting others is as we well know not relevant at all.

Hopefully soon people will realise what a scam this all is. They will be ashamed of themselves.

425811 ▶▶▶ Poppy, replying to Two-Six, 13, #184 of 1244 🔗

Let’s just say that I have never really got on very well with my mum and she has acted against my interests in the past. We have had a strained relationship for a long time but the Covid bollocks has made it ten times worse and any hope of a reconciliation seems to recede by the day.

426317 ▶▶▶▶ Boris Bullshit, replying to Poppy, 4, #185 of 1244 🔗

Its sadly true that just because she is your mother she does not necessarily put your interests first. In my experience parents can be as selfish as anyone else. You are the best judge of your interests so tell her to go swivel.

Well said Poppy. For you at your age, it is certain that the Covid-19 vaccines can have no benefit. That will also likely apply to the rest of us, no matter what age we are.

The vaccines present serious risks and they will want to inject all of us every six months for the rest of what will be purposely curtailed lives. Far better to make a stand now and refuse the “vaccines” before any damage is done.

426038 ▶▶ LMS2, replying to Poppy, 5, #187 of 1244 🔗

The whole “everyone needs to do their part” but sounds very communist, i.e. collective responsibility, instead of individual responsibility.
Plus: just because something is published online, it doesn’t automatically mean it has no truth.
The BBC published articles online. So do most scientific journals. Are they all suspect because they’re online and not on tv? Since when did anything on tv mean it’s more authoritative than any other outlet? She’s heard of Russian propaganda: why does she assume our government doesn’t do the same?

426094 ▶▶▶ Poppy, replying to LMS2, 9, #188 of 1244 🔗

It is absolutely communist and something I deeply disagree with personally. Funnily enough, my mum was denouncing Jeremy Corbyn’s policies back during the 2019 GE as ‘communist’, but apparently coercive medical treatment for the abtract ‘collective effort’ is acceptable. Just goes to show that the psy-op has totally warped people’s minds.

I am in the same boat Poppy – I was hugely saddened to hear my Dad say “we all have to play our part” as if he had fallen for the “we are all in this together” guff spewed out by MSM. My parents watch the MSM news bulletins and believe every word – why would they be lying to us? I keep trying to explain and suggest that we should do our own thing and they just come back with “but that is against the rules” and in my head I am screaming “but the rules are just lies”, but they really do genuinely believe it.

He also misled the House when he said the vaccine was given “clinical authorisation.” Not strictly true, authorisation was for temporary emergency supply by the DHSC, not full UK marketing authorisation.

He also said, this is a vaccine “we can all believe in.” yet the Gov own published info. at the time indicates it wasn’t for children. nor for people who have acute severe febrile illness. nor had it been studied in conjunction with any other medication someone might be on. not recommended before or during pregnancy. and any effect on fertility was completely unknown.

This would explain why the January peak was higher than many of us probably expected. Anyone have any thoughts on this hypothesis?

425554 ▶▶ jb12, replying to Adamb, 4, #250 of 1244 🔗

January wasn’t any higher than I expected. It helps their narrative when ‘Covid deaths’ are people who died after a positive test. We also have around 4,000 deaths occurring every week in the home, which is around 40-50% of the ‘expected’ number according to the 5 year average, with the last year consistently having 700-800 each and every week above what is considered ‘normal’..

425628 ▶▶ Bugle, replying to Adamb, 5, #252 of 1244 🔗

There is no proof the January peak was not created from a) PCR tests run at 45 cycles and b) institutional mis-reporting of causes of death.

This is the irrefutable evidence that LD is not effective. Crude deaths. A definition of pandemic should always include excess deaths. This table shows that for most European countries.

This is not statistics built upon tests, defined cases or C-19 deaths. Those statistics can vary or be manipulated in the worst case scenario. But deaths cannot be easily hidden in these countries.
The table clearly show almost all LD countries with most deaths. Sweden is well below average.
This doesn’t mean that NPI instead of LD are automatically effective. Anyone reading WHO Guidelines 2019 and earlier guidance will be shocked to know how scant any evidence is for NPI.

NPI cannot work for a respiratory virus spread by aerosol.

The spread of the virus has always been described from droplets, surfaces and aeorosol. Nobody has dared to highlight the most important one, aerosol, as this goes against all NPI.

An infected individual breath out millions of particles 24 hour a day. It passes through all masks and the only mask which is effective won’t let you breathe. In the minuscule of time, compared to breathing, when you are sneezing and coughing, masks might stop these droplets although there are concerned reports that this is not effective as the droplet might be fragmented and expelled out of the mask.

There are virus particles in the air mostly 2 m outside the infective patient but a small amount can be spread much longer.

Sweden’s NPI is also useless. But we have the illusion of control and a “something must be done mentality”. The only human intervention possible is treatment, now more possible, or vaccines which will be too late for the second wave. Any NPI will not work for a respiratory virus spread by aerosol.

The table is from this short article with some interesting death comparisons with the flu pandemics,1957 and 1968 in the Nordic countries

Brilliant! Thank you.

The elephant in the room is, of course, to what extent NPIs may have contributed to those increases in mortality.

Certainly, in Britain, that contribution appears to have been substantial:

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

https://www.amnesty.org.uk/files/2020-10/Care%20Homes%20Report.pdf?kd5Z8eWzj8Q6ryzHkcaUnxfCtqe5Ddg6=

It seems clear to me that if the government replicated exactly its interventions of March 2020 for every occurrence of a seasonal coronavirus or other common cold virus, the increase in overall mortality that resulted would be similar.

Except that now medics know how to prevent cytokine storms, the most severe and dangerous symptom.

I think we’ve shown that anyone who presents with COVID symptoms should be given a steroid inhaler.”

‘“We’ve never had a good treatment for the common cold, it does make people sick, especially older people, and perhaps this could be it,” Professor Nicolau said.

“These pandemics are now coming every five years or so, and this treatment should work for the next one, because hyper-inflammation is not particular to COVID, it happens with all respiratory infections.”

425595 ▶▶ Julian, replying to swedenborg, 5, #279 of 1244 🔗

Compelling indeed but the lockdown zealots will simply say that if the lockdown countries hadn’t locked down they would have had more deaths. Of course we all know that the burden of proof is on those proposing unorthodox measures, but the confidence trick that has been played in which lockdowns are now considered orthodox is what we are up against. Maybe belief in empirical science was much more fragile than we thought.

One of the failings of all the LDS authors is the inability to recognise the simple process of measuring things correctly.

I bet each one would be up in arms if their bank told them they owe £10,000. Because you’d just look at the statements wouldn’t you? But say you don’t have the statements and the bank uses a model to estimate what you owe.

You’d still want to see statements because the basic principle is the same. Why couldn’t the bank produce statements down to the penny?

So equally why can you not show how other respiratory ailments have been eliminated and that the diagnosis of Covid-19 has much less uncertainty? Oh that’s right you can’t because it always was vague by definition and they changed the reporting rules on death certificates too.

Hmm so right from the bat there’s something wrong.

And thus you can’t say it’s an emergency, at least a real one.

I lost my temper this morning on the railway forum I visit. Loads of lockdown zealots, very pro masks and now totally inexplicably pro vaccine passports. OK, quite a few of them have had the virus in not pleasant ways. I imagine I will be banned from there….

Whatever the dangers of Covid itself, and I don’t deny those, the very thought of a vaccine passport fills me with the utmost rage. We are already at the stage where the chances of meeting somebody infected is quite low and yet the Covid police are suggesting we will have to keep away from others and wear silly things on our faces as if we were lepers. Most of us want to live a normal life and the longer this nonsense is drawn out – the government has clearly no intention of giving in – the less will I have to exist in this very unfriendly place.

Covid is not the only disease in the world and will hopefully very soon be history. But there won’t be a world to go back to if we carry on like this. Or a railway, you can’t keep running empty trains for ever.

No question that the NHS needs reform. And, I agree, it also needs more funding

But:

‘…. it would also be nice if we could simply discuss the performance of different healthcare systems in the same hysteria-free way in which we currently discuss the performance of different education systems, or the productivity performance of different economies. And who knows, maybe we will get there one day.’ (Kristian Niemietz, CAPX Reference above)

However, even on LS if I recommend an outline for such reform, and increased funding, based on what works for our neighbours, safe to say such recommendations, involving, as they do, some form of social insurance scheme, are not popular, even though the evidence supports them:

In terms of outcomes, quality and efficiency, social health insurance systems are consistently ahead of the NHS on almost every available measure. They combine the universality of a public system with the consumer sovereignty, the pluralism, the competitiveness and the innovativeness of a market system.’

https://iea.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/Niemietz-NHS-Interactive.pdf

But again, how did our own funding system for the NHS start out?

‘The National Insurance Act 1911 formed the basis of NI as we know it today, albeit on a considerably different basis……..

There were two individual schemes at that point in time, one dealing with health and pension benefits and the other associated with unemployment benefit. The former was run by trusted societies and unions whilst the latter was a scheme controlled solely by the government.’

‘This soon changed with the arrival of the ‘welfare state’ in 1948, which heralded the homogenisation of the separate stamps resulting in one singular stamp to cover all benefits.’

https://www.cipp.org.uk/resourceLibrary/national-insurance-history-and-application.html

So Britain started off with a social insurance system for healthcare and then government intervention made it worse………and we still pay national insurance……..

Sounds a bit like the bungling Democratic Socialist government incompetence we have witnessed at first hand over the last twelve months.

Looking at the MHRA Yellow Card deaths from vaccines to 10 Feb – Astra 150, Pfizer 173 – I wonder whether these are picking up all deaths as a result of vaccination.
https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-vaccine-adverse-reactions
ONS data shows that care home & hospice deaths ‘with Covid’ rose from a fairly steady 500/600 per week in Nov/Dec to, for the 4 weeks of January: 1,033; 1,375; 1,958; 1,870. That’s an excess over the Nov/Dec run rate of about 3,700 for those 4 weeks alone.
1.      Why the increase, which coincided with the vaccination programme in care homes?
2.      Does taking the vaccine make it likely that you will test +ve for Covid shortly afterwards?
3.      Are care homes being strong-armed into NOT filing Yellow Card reports, even if they suspect that a death following vaccination was linked to the vaccination?
MHRA say, a la Mandy Rice-Davies:
“The MHRA has received 173 UK reports of suspected ADRs to the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine in which the patient died shortly after vaccination, 150 reports for the Oxford University/AstraZeneca vaccine and 3 where the brand of vaccine was unspecified.
The majority of these reports were in elderly people or people with underlying illness. Usage of the AstraZeneca has increased rapidly and as such, so has reporting of fatal events with a temporal association with vaccination however, this does not indicate a link between vaccination and the fatalities reported. Review of individual reports and patterns of reporting does not suggest the vaccine played a role in the death.”

425572 ▶▶ Katabasis, replying to BTLnewbie, 5, #322 of 1244 🔗

I note in the case of the Pfizer report five women suffered spontaneous abortions and these abortions have not been included in the fatality totals.

425608 ▶▶ Andy Riley, replying to BTLnewbie, 7, #323 of 1244 🔗

if we are to make an informed choice about vaccination we must be able to compare risk which means that the method of counting Covid deaths and vaccine deaths should be similar. They are not, Covid deaths are based on a death within 28 days of a positive test and they want us to count vaccine deaths only after review. So not comparable so I can’t make an informed decision.

I come to LS because I believe that lockdowns are not a proportionate response to the pandemic and do more harm than good. Unfortunately at times, it has become an echo chamber at best and a meeting place for some quite radical views at worst.

Assuming that at least one goal of most visitors is to see the return of normality we have to realise that the public have to be brought along. I now inhabit the readers comments sections on The Times and The Telegraph (student discount). I think the Daily Mail would be a good target but my computer bogs down with all the pop ups and ads. The aim is to reply to or pose a question to an easily disputable statement. For example vaccine passports – why necessary when the published data (link to The Lancet or NEJM) doesn’t demonstrate nor was designed to demonstrate an effect on transmission. Lockdown release in months – why when the vulnerable are all protected and will likely only get mild symptoms are we locking down when the NHS will not be affected?

If and when I get ad hominen attacks I usually ignore them and leave if for other readers to decide. So, basically a system of providing decent evidence (not links to newspapers) and hopefully one by one leading to eventually a ground swell of opinion changing. That leaves this site to swap ideas as how to influence opinion and provide evidence.

425585 ▶▶ Julian, replying to Apache, 13, #331 of 1244 🔗

I think a lot of people on here spend time commenting on MSM sites and trying to persuade friends, colleagues and random people of the harms and futility of lockdown. I know I do.

As for “quite radical views at worst” well it depends what you mean by “radical” and “worst”. If you simply mean things you yourself don’t agree with then you may in the wrong place because the site’s sponsor is the founder of the Free Speech Union. If you mean views arguably likely to harm our case with the wider public, then you may be right in some cases – it’s a question of tactics. But if people believe those views are the truth then they should be aired.

425619 ▶▶ Tom Blackburn, replying to Apache, 6, #332 of 1244 🔗

Unfortunately, I am way WAY down the road of trying to present rational arguments with a view to coaxing these people. I have been met with – at best – indifference. At worst, hostility and disgusting threats. Really vile language that should really be abhorrent to anyone with any morals. Some of these people are professionals who should know better.

So, yeah you could say my views have become a bit more extreme. Ultimately you can’t go in too hard when you are on solid, truthful, ethical ground. I leave the insults to them but I will not hold back one iota on my judgement of them.

If correct, it also shows that Mike Yeadon was right. The “second wave” is the standard flu peak. Even the first one is Covid Measures rather than Covid. If we are getting the standard flu peak in Autumn/Winter then we have reached herd immunity.

The question then is what is causing the spike up in the last month. Could be a secondary flu peak as we get these in January at times.

… is indeed the question. The spike is difficult to explain, and is higher and sharper than expected (I reckon about 2000 – 13-15% dpw higher at the peak). But one thing’s for sure – lockdowns, masks and vaccines didn’t prevent it.

I don’t know about anyone else, but this shitty news about allowing one person to meet another outside in April makes me want to end it now. This is never going to end, and the sheeple just don’t see it.

Its all very well saying well just see friends/family anyway, but as someone else said, if those friends/family are brainwashed sheeple then who the hell do you see? We haven’t seen either set of parents now since last year (mine are a long way away). Discovered recently my SIL is one of those twats that wears a mask whilst outside exercising- so I never EVER want to see or speak to her again. Just thinking about her makes me incandescent with rage.

Locally we fair slightly better, our elderly neighbours down the lane come for coffee regularly and we go to theirs. We had lunch at our other friends about 40 min away yesterday and again, do so on a regular basis – although they are sheeple they only follow the rules that suit them – I had a screaming row with them in the recent past.

The ones that have upset me the most are our closest friends who we saw constantly from day one through all the lockdowns/tiers etc, having dinners/coffees etc. This time round they seemed to have been spooked (I suspect from supposed cases in the local village) and have hidden away in their isolated cottage, even though we are both rural and not seeing anyone anyway, they won’t come over to us or invite us to see them. It’s these guys I miss the most because it was the only time I ever laughed or smiled.

I had just started to think we were seeing some chinks of light in the darkness, but today I feel it’s just never ever going to change.
Am I deluded in hoping this latest shitty piece of carrot might actually be the thing that makes the 1922 committee take some decisive action?

If there was a bloody place we could go to take a deadly jab to kill us off, I’d be queuing up there right now!!

Hold tight, RP and keep looking forward to those social occasions (however limited they are).

She even thinks she has broken a couple of rules (she hasn’t, but she has made up additional ones of her own to ehance the masochistic thrill) and I have been encouraging her no end to put her family first.

I’m not putting much faith in the 1922 – they haven’t followed through so far, but they do have the potential to turn this all around and there is nothing wrong with us being hopeful as long as we are also braced for disappointment. I feel absolutely broken much of the time and think “I can’t keep doing this”, but I can and I will – nothing lasts forever.

Are you a working example of the proof that their plan is working?

But regardless the past, you are the capacity to choose to no longer be played with by such deceits.
And so you can choose to accept everything as an education instead of persisting in playing along with a scam as the victim. Nothing can deny you the truth that you are willing to let be revealed to you. But the desire to know has to have some basis in true fulfilment – or joy in life.

‘Reality’ has disintegrated to lies and deceits. Or rather what we have lived can no longer be supported, and we have to find the place from which to live when what we thought was true is not here. Blame or self-pity will compound the grievance and powerlessness. There are some disciplines to accept by which to align in what works – just on the responsibility for energy and purpose.

Bottoming out is the opportunity to release what does not work and cannot work, to the revealing and acceptance of what does, one step at a time. If you want to die, then of course you can bring it on. But what this often means is under a set of terms and conditions we are unwilling to change or release – not least because of the convictions that lockdown into grievance, withholding and conditional demands.

If you give your power to the world of conditions, you will ‘die’ when conditions change as a reset of old separation patterns of trauma in betrayal and pain of loss. You know how to ‘do’ this, but do you know how to reconnect to the nature of your being? You CAN release your ‘story’ to a relationship with something or someone alive. In any moment of recognition of the opportunity to be the choice.

Too much Inflammation does not serve the ability to make wise decisions. No matter what is apparently ‘going on’ you are responsible to keep your house in order. If you are still watching TV output at this time I ask you if you have a death wish or a propensity to hate and demean yourself? For that is what is being fed as mainstreamed mind.

Live this day well!

Indeed, but the pharma led suppression of Vit D is almost a century old. The sudden sense of ‘entitlement’ to a true education is itself a symptom of a sickness management system.
Don’t wait from official recognition or sanction for truth to become true. And don’t give credibility to ‘truth manufacturing’ systems of possession and control in our name.

This story is old – but worthy or being reminded.
Adequate Vit D is probably the cheapest and simplest single factor that would actually allow ‘immune function’ to optimally operate against seasonal respiratory sickness challenges.

The business of profiting from sickness is the single greatest threat to health – and includes profiting from the inflammation of conflicts and wars.

https://lockdownsceptics.org/2021/02/20/latest-news-291/#comments

“Stay Sceptical. Control the hysteria. Save lives”.

Scepticism is a questioning that seeks further evidence before accepting or rejecting an appearance or assertion as a fact. It is a stepping stone. To persist in questioning an assertion that is revealed to be a deceit, is to give reality to the deceit rather than releasing it to see what is really here.

Hysteria needs to be checked from feeding on itself but the inducement to panic has been deliberately and persistently intended for the purpose of control. Fear, once checked, calls to be undone or healed as a result of the truth revealing. The mind control is the nature of the problem, not the answer.

Save lives. Awareness and appreciation of life is where we know, flow and be the life that we both have and share. The saving of life from destructive deceit is not a mere statistic for the prolongation of misery in captivity. The term ‘save lives’ is a sure-fire no-brainer by which to enlist the willingness to blindly follow an agenda because it assigns such a term as a slogan. The appreciation of life as freedom to be and the expression and unfolding of the potentials of our being is a basis for saving us from a living death.

At the level of the body, the persona, and the world of its story and development of themes, explorations and experience, everyone dies. Has ever a life been ‘saved’ from the mortal condition? Only if the recognition of Life as timeless awakens beneath the masking, filtering denials that structure the capacity to experience the focus we call alive in the world. Materialism, in its general sense is the assigning of reality outside the reality of Self, to become its cause and definer, rather than its imaged symbol of mythic construct. To those who deny light, darkness is real, and they cannot see life though it all about them. Much of what is invoked to ‘save’ is the reiteration of a distancing or separating of denial or lockdown to a private masking narrative dictate. For to fear given power, hiding is ‘salvation’ and the mask through which to persist a self-conflicted agenda as ‘survival’ that masks in the forms of life as the means to steal your life by the substitution of a false for true.

Conflict agenda which is where a private wish or willing is given priority over true relation, such as to effectively bias, distort and filter experience at cost to awareness of the whole.
This becomes the denial and attack on truth as the means to save the ‘bubble reality’ of a private self seeking self-reinforcement as mutual narrative ‘identity’. Thus our good intentions can be assigned to ‘save’ our fear in self-illusion from the disclosure of the opportunity for its correction, undoing or healing.

If I’d paid for a faux leather sofa from The World of Arthur Dayley Furniture Ltd last March, and been promised delivery in three weeks, and even if the factory had had ‘Covid’ difficulties, even if things had got lost in the post, even if the dog had eaten the original order, even if the original sofa had been damaged in delivery to the warehouse, even if the warehouse had unfortunately burned down, twice, and even if Arthur had had to source it from another manufacturer …. even, even if I was still waiting for an unspecified delivery date a year later, then I think I may now be telling Mr Dayley to shove his sofa up his arse, and looking for a new supplier, and wringing my money out of somewhat surprised and disappointed looking Mr Dayley. After all his efforts on my behalf, I mean, such ingratitude!

Good morning! I have just read that great article by Sinead Murphy. However, in defence of online teaching I should say that I’m currrntly taking an online diploma in acting at the Gaiety School in Dublin. It’s absolutely amazing and I’m enjoying it so much. I think drama teaching can work really well online if the teacher knows how to do it. I also believe that my online primary school students are getting a bit more attention from me than they do in normal class as I’m lucky enough to have only two at a time. I’m a learning Support Teacher so I have been allocated only the weaker students. One in particular made unbelievable progress last spring and summer. Of course it’s not ideal but experience has shown me that it can work.

As a former college teacher (in the US, not the UK), I believe the element of choice is the most important thing. Obviously, choice does not enter into the current situation.

I’ve taught in person and online, in more recent years (before the pandemic). Students who do well online are usually at the top of the class anyway and may actually feel held back in an in-person course. They would naturally choose online sessions (and not these stupid Zoom things I’ve seen – horrible).

When I taught in person, I often noticed these students working ahead during class and left them alone to get on with it. For the remaining 90% of students, online education is a disaster. And I’m only talking about college students. For young children, it’s just plain child abuse.

Thanks for publishing the work of Glen Bishop and now Derek Winton, and thanks to them and others for it. I have a couple questions about the Imperial model which perhaps they or someone else could answer:

  • is it just a coincidence that 68000000 x 0.833333 x 0.009 = 510000 ?
  • the files on github supporting the latest prediction of ~130K further deaths include the effective IFR’s used for each age group. To your knowledge, does the model take account of the fact that regardless of age group, people with serious health conditions are prioritised for vaccination, and that therefore the agegroup-average IFR should not be applied equally to an entire age cohort at any one time-point?
  • How did anyone ever manage to predict 96K deaths for Sweden using the Imperial model? Even if you accept assumed Imperial’s IFR, and assume that every single person in Sweden gets infected, there aren’t enough people in the country to write “Covid” on more than 91254 death certificates. The calculation above would predict 75K.

I’ve had no response from Imperial on the second point.

You make a good and interesting point about pseudo reality

There has always been some part of life that is lived vicariously, going back thousands of years when people listened to or read stories of great deeds

As technology has moved on, pseudoreality has become more sophisticated and more widely used/abused

Balance in all things

It’s good to watch great deeds but then you should be inspired to go out and do them yourself, or do something

I don’t watch much TV but the channels and shows I watch don’t feature much about covid – the ads are muzzle-free in general. I am partly glad of this, but partly conscious that this may be double-edged. The people who make the ads and the shows probably know that we don’t want to be reminded of how shit life is, but my worry is that people will watch this stuff and enjoy it and see say a shop with bare faced customers or a crowded bar and somehow imagine that these are experiences that are available and that they themselves have just experienced them .

There has been much discussion on here about the possible degree of persuasion being used to “encourage” people to be Covid vaccinated, those who have made a rational decision (for whatever reason) to decline the “offer”.

The following letter is being sent to some patients of Shore Medical practices if they have declined Covid vaccination “offers”.

I have myself put some text in bold (just to be clear – NOT done by Shore Medical) as I believe that it may warrant attention/comment here because of the statements made.

There may also be other parts which the better informed here may want to examine and comment on.

Note – I have used “etc” towards the end as it is only details about where it is being given, which is not relevant here.

“Dear X

I understand you have made the decision to decline the Covid 19 vaccination at this time.

Please be aware that should you change your mind we will do our best to offer you vaccination assuming that we have adequate supply of vaccine . The vaccines approved for use in the UK all meet strict standards of safety, quality and effectiveness set out by the independent Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). Clinical trials were all run in accordance with best practice, with the phases being run concurrently.

So far, millions of people have been given a COVID-19 vaccine and reports of serious side effects, such as allergic reactions, have been very rare. No long-term complications have been reported.

To find out more about the vaccination programme and vaccines approved in the UK, see https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/coronavirus-vaccine/

The team at Shore Medical would very strongly advise all patients to accept our invitation for vaccination when offered. We have seen at first hand the impact of Covid 19 on some of our most vulnerable patients, but also on many young and previously healthy people.

The vaccine stimulates the body to produce antibodies to the virus so that it is recognised and destroyed rapidly. The vaccines currently used have different mechanisms for stimulating antibodies, but the immunity they create is the same. They cannot cause Covid infection and they do not affect us in other ways. Please do not become prey to the myths and rumour that are circulated by those who are ill-informed.

We have now vaccinated well over 90% of patients in our priority groups. Please do take time to reconsider receiving the vaccine both for yourself and your community.

Shore Medical is delivering its vaccination programme from etc, etc…………..

Kind regards
The Shore Medical Team”

425758 ▶▶ Mutineer, replying to dhid, 17, #491 of 1244 🔗

That is both untrue and coercion. I am now getting very worried. I have declined the vaccine but have been getting odd calls from my Practice. I have been told I missed a ultrasound exam and asked why. I missed it in 2019! And 2020! No calls then. It is my body and my decision. I was then informed I was due a blood test and I pointed out in was due last year and they cancelled it. It got very nasty and the ‘facilitator’ (formerly known as a receptionist) hung up. I have friends who are being told that they must sign to say they are taking full responsibility for missed smear tests and told the NHS won’t treat them should they get symptoms. The tone the facilitator used was extremely nasty and was more akin to a bank official than a healthcare professional. Why are they suddenly going back through records and covering their arses? I have never had so many calls from the practice. Invitation after invitation to have the vaccine even though it is supposed to be on my notes that I don’t have vaccines. Questions about historic ‘tests’. I am deeply suspicious.

Yes, I wonder if the practice who sent this would be prepared to sign a document accepting legal liability for any ill effect, damage or death from any of the vaccines? They have stated:

“.. cannot cause Covid infection and they do not affect us in other ways

I’ve never had so much interest from my health authority. In the past month I have been offered a flu jab, a smear test, and a breast screening. That’s great (apart from the flu jab – I just thought that offering that to a healthy 50 year old at the tail end of flu season was a bit pointless) but I’ve spent 10 years battling for help for an elderly parent and no one in the NHS gave a shit. And I, parent and my partner have all had to end up paying privately for care that really should have been available but wasn’t. So I feel it’s all a bit ‘too little too late’ pretending to give a shit now when I’ve been driven to absolute despair over the past decade by their total negligence.

“The decision to either consent or not to consent to treatment must be made by the person, and must not be influenced by pressure from medical staff, friends or family”

425884 ▶▶ Freecumbria, replying to dhid, 12, #510 of 1244 🔗

That’s scary. It’s about as far away from informed consent as you can get. Without going into detail there are a number of things I dislike in that letter.

  1. No information (even if they think that is justified) that the experimental vaccine was approved under the emergency rules
  2. Reports of side affects have been common, I think it is generally recognised even by those supporting vaccination that side affects are significant (e.g. perhaps 10x worse than the flu jab). And some side affects have been serious. They should link to information on side affects such as MHRA website rather than make such bland statements.
  3. There have been long term complications including death. How many are attributable to the vaccine they can debate, but to state there have been none is just wrong.
  4. Stating vaccine mediated immunity is the same as natural immunity is nonsense. But if they believe that they should state it is an opinion not as a fact.
  5. They should point out that any long term affects can’t be known, but to crassly just say the trials have been done concurrently implying there are no long term affects is negligent in my view.
  6. Making vague emotional arguments about the affect of covid on some of their patients is not conducive to informed decision making. It’s like saying we have seen the affect of road traffic accidents on some of our patients, please do not drive.
  7. Strongly advising ALL patients shows a complete lack of individual consideration. The chances of a young person dying with or from covid is not just less but enormously less than an older person and in the case of a young healthy person it is trivially small. Even if you think the benefit exceeds the harm in some patients, the benefit/harm trade off is completely different between individuals.
  8. Their complete ignorance of basic immunology and how vaccines work, and their crass belief this is all about antibodies and failure to realise the importance of T cells, is deeply worrying.
  9. Suggesting you should be vaccinated for your community rather than to protect your own health is shocking, and I suspect breaches some of the rules they are supposed to follow. They give no reason why it benefits the community. For example when others in the community can be vaccinated to ‘protect’ themselves.
  10. They can remind people to be careful in looking at information to ensure it is reliable. But it is not acceptable to brand views that go against yours as myth and rumour. Tell the children affected by the pandemrix vaccine, with their lives ruined through narcolepsy that any new vaccine is safe and won’t affect you in other ways.
  11. There should be a balanced statement somewhere in there that any vaccine can have harms as well as benefits, but that they believe the benefits exceed the harms (if that is what they believe). To fail to state that shows the absence of balanced decision making and the lack of informed consent.
426097 ▶▶▶ dhid, replying to Freecumbria, 2, #511 of 1244 🔗

Thanks for your detailed reply.

Yes, the letter is lacking in very many ways, and it could be seen as misinformation because there is zero admission that not all the “facts” stated in it, are verifiable at the present time.

It certainly can’t be seen as balanced, as you say, and those who have been harmed in the past by other vaccines, would be outraged by it, no doubt.

425897 ▶▶ ThomasT, replying to dhid, 3, #512 of 1244 🔗

It seems like they have missed a marketing trick here. My local hospital a few weeks back was using the “even if you don’t care about yourself, get the vaccine as it will protect your loved ones” line to try and guilt people into having it. Clearly a load of bull as the vaccine doesnt stop you getting it and doesnt stop you transmitting it, but what does a few actual facts matter?

Remember the Surgery get sales commision on each vaccine given, so its in their interests to market it as strongly as possible, like they do with the flu vaccine to make maximum profits from it.

426147 ▶▶▶ dhid, replying to ThomasT, #513 of 1244 🔗

The “even if you don’t care about yourself…” is both sick and, as you say complete BS.

As you say, I expect they are worried about not getting enough commission – when you start looking at Companies House at some of the interests of partners in Shore Medical it becomes very convoluted and you realise that the simple “family doctor” that some older folk think of, is a long disappeared animal.

426210 ▶▶ dhid, replying to dhid, 1, #514 of 1244 🔗

LATER ADDITION by dhid to my original post.

It occurs to me that the letter I quoted is not “signed” or claimed by any named individual, so I wonder about any legal issue if the validity, or otherwise, of the statements made within the letter could be challenged, e.g. if a recipient made their decision to receive vaccination on the basis of the statements in the contents, and subsequently suffered harm as a result.

Given the nature of this somewhat involved organisation sending it (and possibility of that changing), would it not be difficult to know who to direct any such activity against, most especially as there is no claimed author?

They have as much Covid there as we do.
They just made sure the tests run at a very low CT number to hide this, fool their people and us.
Every outlier country seems to have its place and/on the (WEF/Gates?) given agenda, to confuse or seed hope in order to lead others into even more confusing and detrimental policies etc..

The useless tests main and most important function and feature is the deliberately denigrating and dehumanizing swabbing process: you are tested to condition you, to be shown and accept who’s the boss.
There is an article in the FAZ today where the association of German lab doctors stresses just this: the money must be kept flowing to them, swabbing by pharmacists is a no-go as they would be too nice to their customers, LFTs/self swabbing is a no-go anyway.
“The nasal swab must produce so much harm that you break into tears, the one in the throat must make you want to puke.”
Original words of the Dr. who chairs that organization- Mengele would be proud of him, but then these days, most doctors and all chairs of their organizations seem to have studied at the Leonardo Conti school of medicine.

This also explains why the less invasive US test has recently run into problems with the FDA when the manufacturers tried to widen its use to asymptomatic people.
And then, there are more and more stories about the tests really being devices to make people very sick over time and the first such illnesses and deaths arising: try to avoid ANY test like the plague, if you don’t want to run this risk, which must be deemed ever more credible.

In a nutshell: as everything, this is in truth solely about obedience, conditioning, punishing, denigrating, ruining and killing as many people as
possible without being blameable for it.

Whatever happens in the UK re proof of vaccine requirements (I wouldn’t shop, drink, eat, etc anywhere that required such proof) there is still a strong possibility some countries will want to see some sort of vaccine passport before allowing entry.

Although I would certainly not have any covid vaccine for medical reasons it may become necessary to get vaccinated to travel to some countries. (please don’t state the obvious but unhelpful, ”just don’t visit those countries”)

So, just to clarify, i would not take any covid vaccine for medical reasons because I have an immune system that takes care of that shit for me.

For travel purposes only – does anyone know anything about this nasal spray vaccine and does it reduce the risks of long term compromise of the immune system…

BHF has a good summary of the vaccines in trial, but I don’t know whether that one is on there and it seems to be way behind the others.
I have the same issues you have with regard to travelling that might force me to consider getting jabbed at some point and understand everyone who’ll do it just for that, although I think there us a huge difference, depending on your vaccine concern level, what you want to travel for and where to: family/holiday home abroad: you’ll have to do it eventually, can only wait another year or so. Cruise, buddy trips to somewhere fancy: wait for as long as you can until more data or bodies have piled up.
The first one I would consider from that BHF list is the Novavax one (traditional, recombinant, safest), but I need to do more RX on the adjuvant, nanoparticles in it etc..

Here’s my simplistic view on the effect of lockdowns.

How are lockdowns (NPIs) supposed to work – They reduce the transmission rate by cutting off routes of transmission

How does immunity work – It reduces the transmission rate by cutting off routes of transmission

I must point out that saying lockdowns work or don’t work is about as meaningful as saying immunity works or doesn’t in this respect. They both have an effect and how we measure that effect is what is important.

Attached is a chart I knocked up to help me visualise how a Herd Immunity Threshold (HiT) might be achieved depending on the mix of immunity and NPI.

In the absence of immunity we are solely reliant on NPI to limit the spread of a virus. The more immunity there is the less NPI is required to achieve an HiT, i.e. the point where the infection curve turns downward.

Immunity, once gained continues to work. NPIs are single use. The use of NPI slows down the natural build up of immunity which means in order to maintain the same level of effect you have to keep implementing NPIs.

There are so many people who claim that NPIs save lives but if this is to be accepted as fact then it must be true that immunity also saves lives. They would work in the same way.

We can see from real world data that regardless of the level of NPI the end result is the same, in fact it’s turning out worse in many if not most places. This backs up the idea that NPI acts in the same way as immunity. Unless people are totally isolated from each other immunity will naturally build up in a population as people become infected. So in the long term it is preferrable to have immunity.

When we factor in all the additional costs of NPIs to achieve the same or worse result as natural immunity then there should be no sane person in the world who could think that lockdowns are a reasonable response to this pandemic.

The piece on home-schooling was particularly depressing. No one, not even a competent teacher, should even attempt to reproduce schooling at home with their child/ren. Any attempt to do so could only have, at best no positive benefit, and at worst would have terrible outcomes.

A parent dealing with the consequences of the government closure of schools (yes, I know the government in court denied it had closed schools) should be concerned for the welfare of their child. The school curriculum is a matter for schools.

The child’s welfare should be the primary concern. This concern would suggest an approach to the child’s education that is very different to the concerns of a highly bureaucratised educational institution. It would be personalised and tailored to the needs, routines and practices of the family.

The priority should be exercise and play. This should take up a significant amount of the time in each that is devoted to education. The major emphasis should be on fun.

Turning to academic learning. Here the approach should be holistic (rather than the bureaucratised division of knowledge that is found in schools). Something should be selected that is of some intrinsic interest. It does not matter what it is. It could be a story, some historical event, or anything else: something the child will find interesting. To illustrate. Say a story is selected. There is the reading aloud of a portion of the story. This is followed by discussion: what happened, why did character X do Y, what feelings did the narration evoke, etc. There can then be some writing about this or the creation of a storyboard or a timeline, some artwork illustrating an aspect/s of the work read, etc. This work would be done independently and later reviewed and assessed. This pattern is repeated until the study of the story is completed. When a new topic is selected.

This approach enables learning that is not perceived as work, still less as an oppressive imposition, which is precisely what trying to reproduce schooling at home inevitably leads to. Trying to reproduce schooling at home is just another of the lockdown child abuses, and I cannot understand why any parent would wish to impose that on their child. The closure of schools offers an opportunity for learning that is not determined by bureaucracy: parents ought to take it for the welfare of their children and ought not to feel any need to try to force their children to slavishly follow a school curriculum. If authority figures want the school curriculum to be taught and studied, the solution is available to them: open the schools.

In the context of lockdown I agree that this is disastrous.

I don’t agree, if this is held to be a wider principle. Homeschooling definitely has a place and can be very successful with parents who do it right. I’ve known some, and met some very well educated and adjusted people arising out of it. It’s more common and much better supported in some US states.

In our current (I mean pre-covid) context , in which we have collectivised mass schooling that includes systematic political indoctrination, the more who can escape from it the better. But it is not easy to do so for most, and the wider support structures of community and friendships are often not present and hard to reproduce.

Why do you vitiate reasonable points for argument with totally barmy statements such as :

Clearly, there has been political indoctrination in some legislation – as, for example, in the ‘Christian Act of Worship’ imposed by a previous Tory government, and the predations contained within an overblown “National Curriculum” and testing regime.

But, given that all societies tend towards social control, the historical nature of the system is not of systematic conformity – although the tendency has grown over 20 years – ironically, in line with the ‘academy’ (privatisation) movement, with the Covid-like spread of school uniforms etc.

Why are you seemingly incapable of grasping that just because you personally like and agree with indoctrination, it somehow doesn’t count as indoctrination? I’ve had four children pass through the state education system. I’ve seen directly the indoctrination they’ve been subjected to. We even used to call “PSHE” “state indoctrination”.

Because that’s what it was, though it wasn’t the only source of it, in school.

Hair-splitting semantics I think. Remember that many people who homeschool cooperate with other families to make a group multi-age environment not dissimilar to traditional village schools.

Internet, and decades of political discussion with Americans and on American forums, probably. In truth most people of the internet generation use Americanisms all the time. I suspect I’m just a little ahead of my time in that, especially in the context of political and philosophical debate.

I’m a great believer in home ed, having practised it myself, but what is currently happening is NOT home ed – ie, locking a child up 24/7 with a computer screen, feeding them junk food, and banning them from outdoor exercise, activities, and friends. it is out and out child abuse and neglect, state sponsored, and any teacher who applauds it should never be allowed anywhere near a child again

Just sent my latest FOI to the DHSC:

“The following statement was made on the 30th January 2020 by the 4 Chief Medical Officers of England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland and stated:

“the 4 UK Chief Medical Officers consider it prudent for our governments to escalate planning and preparation in case of a more widespread outbreak.
For that reason, we are advising an increase of the UK risk level from low to moderate. This does not mean we think the risk to individuals in the UK has changed at this stage, but that government should plan for all eventualities.””

This was subsequently used as the “serious and imminent threat” statement that was required to justify and to allow for The Health Protection (Coronavirus) Regulations 2020 Statutory Instrument then all subsequent “coronavirus” legislation to be made and to come into force.

My FOI questions:

1 – were there any discussions between any of the Chief Medical Officers and either Ministers, Central and/or devolved Governments prior to this statement being released?

2 – If the answer to Q1 is YES please supply all the relevant correspondence and records.

3 – other than the above statement, did the CMOs and their respective departments and/or assistants supply any other information to Ministers to justify the statement and that shows how the emerging “virus” was a “serious and imminent threat” to the UK and that could be used to justify the subsequent legislation?

4 – If the answer to Q3 is YES please supply all the relevant correspondence and records.

5 – how did the 4 CMOs know 11 days in advance that this statement would be required as this is not a normal or standard statement by the CMOs and was unprecedented?

6 – Why was this “advice” basically hidden on a webpage on a different department’s gov.uk webpage and not on the DHSC webpages?

7 – Why was the relevant webpage not linked to the Serious and Imminent Threat Declaration?”

Will post whatever they finally answer.

425828 Katabasis, replying to Katabasis, 36, #577 of 1244 🔗

My wife and myself just sent a long, heartfelt letter to Charles Walker. We didn’t pull any punches and also included our academic and clinical credentials.

I don’t know if sharing this will inspire more to write, or help some of you who are feeling the same way, but just in case I’m sharing it below (minus our real identities and credentials of course…). Now’s not the time to remain quiet.

Dear Charles,
Thank you for inviting the general public to write to you and share their experiences.

It is difficult to know where to begin. The hysteria. The overreaction. The frightening authoritarianism. The turning of family members and friends against one another.

Even if we returned to the normal lives so many of us ardently wish for tomorrow I don’t think I will ever recover from this mentally and emotionally. The catastrophically authoritarian reaction to this by the establishment (in which I include the political, media and academic classes – the latter of which I am sadly part) is bad enough.

The fact that so many of my countrymen, countrywomen, friends and family have also succumbed to the hysteria and become frightened, hectoring members of the new biosecurity state Stasi ready to turn in their nearest and dearest for the most minor perceived infraction is a realisation and experience that will remain forevermore at the forefront of my mind. Many friendships and familial bonds are now ruined for life.

We could pull back from the brink, the economy could recover (though I think this highly unlikely – the hammer is yet to fall), our rights and freedoms could be restored (also unlikely) and yet this could all happen again so easily. I have lost all faith, belief and comfort in the society and nation of which I was once so proud. We wondered for decades how Nazi Germany could have happened. Now we know. We are – collectively – no different, it seems.

My wife and myself are both close to the frontline of this insanity. She is a nurse of over two decades experience. For my part, my skillset is in Data Science, specialising in clinical research for the last five years. Both of us have watched this collective madness unfold with horror and have also shared the thoroughly unpleasant experience of having our professional opinions and assessments of the situation dismissed by friends and family who preferred to indulge in media and government driven panic and recrimination of non-believers.

I initially took the Covid-19 pandemic very seriously and reluctantly supported the first lockdown. However, in only a matter of weeks there was sufficient comparative data both nationally and internationally to observe our own government’s policies and belief-system swiftly departing from reality. A responsible government should seek to calm those it is tasked with serving and protecting in a major crisis. Ours – who I’m ashamed to admit both my wife and I voted for in good faith – did the complete opposite and continues to pile on the hysteria and authoritarian overreach today.

In the course of examining the academic literature and the data as it emerged I was horrified to find familiar foes of both the truth and the West from the past staking out their territory and apparently determining government policy. Upon my own examination of Ferguson’s modelling code, even after it was refactored by a software engineer I found it was still incredibly sub-par and the fact his appallingly shoddy work, especially with his track record, became the initial central plank of government response both here and in the U.S. without a complete and thorough peer review still appals me almost a year later.

Ferguson is far from the worst scoundrel in this sorry drama, however. I read Klaus Schwab’s “Covid-19: The Great Reset” as soon as it was published last summer. Reading in black and white Schwab and the WEF’s utterly dystopian blueprint they desire for Western society rocked me to my roots. Johnson has repeated entire sentences from Schwab’s book word for word. He, and it seems many members of the government are disciples of Schwab’s evil and sinister ideology and in retrospect many pre-Covid government policies (such as the insane and utterly suicidal “zero carbon” policies) now make more sense in the context of a government captured by the WEF, Gates and the rest of these despicable megalomaniacs.

Even if their goals are frustrated, much of the damage, especially psychologically and emotionally, has been done and is permanent. To my wife, to me, to our friends, our family, to our country.  A frightened, hysterical and self-hating populace is a very easy cohort to control. It is difficult to escape the conclusion that this has been as much a social and psychological experiment carried out on us as anything else, with the government’s “nudge unit” and appallingly amoral husks in the media formally known as “journalists” who are now nothing more than stenographers and hysteria amplifiers.

Many of the mitigation measures are, and always will be in the context of an infectious virus just that – mitigation. They have been sold to the general populace as *prevention* measures. The distinction is important both empirically and in terms of moral behaviour (and moral injury). All we can ever do in the face of a virus is slow its spread until treatments and herd immunity adapt accordingly. This is mitigation.

Many of the most frightened and hectoring busybodies I have encountered since this crisis started appear to believe that these measures are preventative instead. They believe Covid infections are prevented if people are sufficiently zealous in following the rules. If Covid infections continue it is not the measures that are at fault or a virus behaving like viruses do, they believe, it must be that people were not sufficiently assiduous in implementing them. They may as well say people didn’t pray hard enough so God struck them down.

Take mask wearing for example. In public health terms it provides minimal benefit and only if proper protocol is followed (which in 99% of cases it is not). It will almost certainly become a public health crisis all on its own, not least in mental health terms and continued destruction of people’s immune systems. Such a visible symbol of virtue-signalling and compliance however is mana to frightened people who can now freely express their inner authoritarian and bully. Masks, like other measures are interpreted as preventatives not mitigations which is why we now witness the spectacular stupidity of double masking. *If* it is a preventative rather than a mitigation then *of course* wearing two masks make more sense to these people. They’re praying harder.

And now we have the true spectre of this kind of idiotic reasoning and fear rearing its unwelcome head on the horizon: mandatory global vaccination coerced through ‘vaccine passports’. And this is where the mental health of both myself and my wife is affected most. As part of our collective madness, we have departed from decades of good common sense (not to mention ethical) medical practice. Covid-19 is serious, no doubt. But it is not Smallpox. It is not Polio. It most certainly is not Ebola.

(continued below)

425835 ▶▶▶ Katabasis, replying to Katabasis, 73, #579 of 1244 🔗

We are about to eject completely the principle that people who do not need a vaccine should not take it. Especially one that has been rushed to market. How quick so many people are to forget the Government’s previous U-turn on the Swine Flu vaccine after numerous poor victims ended up with narcolepsy. Monitoring the reactions reported here so far in the U.K. and the U.S. to the numerous vaccines it is clear that there is cause for concern already regarding immediate short term reactions and it is perfectly rational for people to adopt a wait-and-see attitude, especially where long-term effects and interactions are concerned.

Moreover, the vast majority of us simply do not need to take the vaccine, period. We have enough data to see clearly now that it is a much more rational choice to allow our immune systems to dispense with the virus rather than subject ourselves to an unnecessary medical treatment. Each time the body is subjected to a vaccine, the immune system is over-stimulated, receiving a jolt that opens a window of vulnerability. Now I see the world’s premier medical expert, Bill Gates, is advocating three – three! – annual vaccinations. For everyone.

The proportion of side effects may seem acceptably small now but that will soon scale up in absolute terms very quickly indeed. From tens of millions of unnecessary injections, to hundreds of millions to what – billions? And three times a year every year? This is madness beyond comprehension.

Looking at the VAERS data for example, deaths are currently “only” in the hundreds so far. I invite you to look at the average age of death at present. 72. Median age of death “with” Covid is around 82 at present. Is that a good exchange in terms of years of life lost? If mass (and ever changing) vaccination for a virus that barely affects most of the population becomes mandatory I guarantee that average age for death due to the vaccination will drop precipitously and the absolute numbers, including for life-changing side-effects will climb precipitously.

Will people at that point still be willing to risk being a statistic? Will you? They’ll get three goes at it every year. Perhaps the five unfortunate women who have been reported in the UK government statistics so far to have experienced spontaneous abortions thanks to the Pfizer vaccine feel grateful that they “saved RNHS” by losing their babies? I note as well, in line with the utterly amoral approach to all of this, that their babies were not counted in the overall mortality. Appalling.

If mandatory / coerced vaccination is introduced for the general population we will collectively be abandoning the most fundamental right an individual can have – the right to bodily integrity. If we do not have that, we have nothing. The medical stasi state effectively owns our bodies at that point and we can, and will, be subject to many more depredations.

To what end? To “save” an abstract NHS (that is supposed to be saving *us*)? As far as I can tell the primary goal is an utterly abhorrent level of authoritarian state control of the individual in the name of obscure collective goods. I can come to no other conclusion. As philosopher Max Stirner put it a century and a half ago in ‘The Ego and its Own’, “they cut off the heads of men to serve Man”. As good an argument against the ills of overbearing collectivism as I’ve ever read. Incidentally an academic philosopher friend of mine who is still very much alive argued this slightly differently – every time “Public Health” is invoked, it means your body and your health become property of “Public Health”. That is where we are going with this.

Now if the coming economic catastrophe as a result of this ongoing(!) madness doesn’t destroy the lives and careers of my wife and myself that we have worked so hard to build then the mandatory vaccine “mandate” and normalisation of “vaccine passports” for ordinary activities such as shopping or socialising occurs then we both consider our lives effectively over. We have discussed this and for us, if this occurs, it is perfectly rational grounds for suicide for both of us. Neither of us want to live in such a horrifying authoritarian hellscape and I don’t think either of us could live with ourselves either if we conceded to its demands. If we have no rights over our own bodies we have no rights at all and nothing else matters a damn, especially in a world where our own friends and family are turned against us for refusing to join in the collective madness.

Yours in utter despair,

Dr. Katabasis.

For the past 60 years, a series of ethical texts and instruments have relayed the Nuremberg court’s opinion, 3 and completed or interpreted the code in the multifaceted context of medical experimentation. The medical profession thus draws on a vast body of ethical reflection to ensure that scientific advances do not prevail over the health and safety of individuals without their fully informed consent in medical experiments . However, we ask whether modern ethics and its binding instruments can always secure full protection to experimental subjects and beyond them, to the recipients of health care. In a context of relentless competition for resources among scientific institutions, ethical vigilance is a permanent necessity. Falsification of scientific results and the premature release of drugs on the market show that modern ethics does not in itself provide full protection against scientific misconduct, especially when it occurs beyond the critical step of malevolent or unsafe experiments involving human beings .

Katabasis – in response to your reply to Jane I have copied the main part of the text. If you don’t mind where it refers to you and your wife, I’ll personalise it to me and sent it to my lockdown zealot multi-millionaire MP. (I am a qualified researcher who previously worked in the science departments of 2 UK universities, have a Chartered Institute of Environmental Health qualification, was an IOSH practitioner pre-early retirement) and my closest family members were in 2 different medical professions (now deceased). Like JaneHarry I would also like to send my personalised version to a Facebook friend who is a lockdown sceptic and who has been following the plans of the WEF, Schwab and Gates for several years and who warned of their huge and growing political and financial influence several times in 2020, but was ignored. I too originally dismissed them until I saw Boris Johnson in a TV interview wearing their logo as a lapel badge and this rang major alarm bells. Then I started doing some in depth research myself. Now I am 100% convinced this pandemic response is the key delivery mechanism for the WEF Great Reset. With Gates and Fauci’s involvement plus BJ, Hancock and Gove being speakers at past WEF conferences, the more digging I do I am now coming round to thinking that those who were calling it a PLandemic were not conspiracy theorists, but flagging up suspicions that all the evidence points towards being monstrous but true. I don’t intend to live in the Gates/Schwab version of the world either, but for the present I intend to fight to the end to stop them realising their vision in whatever way I can, even though they are incredibly powerful. After all, Hitler and other similar evil megalomaniacs have been defeated in the past – who knows, collectively we may just win.

425831 Mark, replying to Mark, 31, #607 of 1244 🔗

We should also consider another position which I believe has been put forward forcefully by the cartoonist Bob Moran, so I shall call this the Moran Doctrine. This is, simply, that the Government should not have the power to impose lockdowns under any circumstances: even if each of the four Franklin Tests were met, a lockdown would not represent a legitimate measure. Just as the state should never torture anybody, under any circumstances, the Government should not have the ability to “lock down” its citizens. We should be given accurate information and clear advice, but we should never have our human rights and civil liberties curtailed by law to this dramatic extent.

I’m pretty firmly in the Moran doctrine camp, for this reason.

It’s hugely unlikely that any situation would ever arise that satisfies the first of the Franklin criteria as described above. A disease would have to be almost unprecedented in human history to genuinely represent an ” an extremely grave, even “existential” societal threat”. The 1918 flu doesn’t even come close. Maybe some of the great plagues of history such as the Black Death, or the catastrophic introduction of Old World diseases to the New World in the C16th (the result of a naturally imposed and far more complete Australian/NZ-style quarantining process).

So we have basically nothing to lose from forbidding it. That doesn’t even mean it will never be done. If you believe the modern UK government has never tortured anyone then you’re a fool. What forbidding it does is place obstacles in the way of those who want to do these things for their own reasons, and forces them to take responsibility for doing so. It is such constitutional barriers, as I understand it, that have prevented the political pressure in Sweden from forcing it to abandon the path of sanity, so far.

And in any case, the presumption that is fundamental to a society that is both democratic and free is that people have to be persuaded to a course of action, outside of restricting behaviour that is clearly criminal (in the sense of breaching another person’s legitimate fundamental rights to life, liberty, property). There is always a tension in any democracy between free democracy and tyranny of the majority. Lockdown represents the latter, in spades, and furthermore is based on heavy and systematic fear propaganda manufacturing the popular consent to it.

We should take the view as axiomatic, that if the threat is genuinely serious enough, then enough people will be persuaded of that and act appropriately. Those who argue the contrary, usually the paternalist fallacy that “people are too stupid/irresponsible” to do that, are not believers in free democracy, but rather either closet fascists or believers in a tyranny of the majority.

And make no mistake here, though many are incapable of recognising this – the seatbelt laws were a clear manifestation of this paternalist fallacy. The axiomatic position should be that if you cannot persuade people to wear seatbelts then you must accept that they are entitled to not do so, and the responsibility for any consequences are theirs alone. Imposing a collectivised health system on them and then claiming they no longer have freedom to choose their behaviour because the costs are now collectivised is pure dishonesty, though very widespread.

425867 ▶▶ Adamb, replying to Mark, 6, #608 of 1244 🔗

Great post Mark. That’s my understanding also re the Swedish situation, although it seems the politicians are doing their best to undo this and ‘get in on the action’.

425901 ▶▶ JaneHarry, replying to Mark, 9, #609 of 1244 🔗

I think part of the problem is the welfare state, the ‘free’ health care. if you delegate responsibility for your own health care to the state, then you are also giving them the right to boss you around, to tell you what you can and can’t do with your own body, since they are the ones picking up the tab. you are laying the groundwork for a system of health fascism, so what is happening today in a sense is a natural consequence. everyone should be responsible for their own health care. that some may not have the means to pay for life saving treatments is just a tough fact of life. in trying to deny or avoid this, you just create an even worse situation.

426050 ▶▶▶ Lindy, replying to JaneHarry, 2, #610 of 1244 🔗

100% JH. It’s also why the NHS operates for the benefit of those that work for it and not for the customers it is meant to benefit.

425996 ▶▶ Julian, replying to Mark, 4, #611 of 1244 🔗

I agree with you but playing devil’s advocate if you have a potentially fatal infectious disease and you knowingly behave in a way that is likely to spread it to others, one could argue that is clearly criminal as you breach their right to life. The evil trick with covid is to have presented it as just this scenario, when it clearly isn’t.

Of course respiratory infections do kill people, and I suppose they might kill fewer people if ill people stayed at home instead of spreading them, though there may be unintended consequences to this as building up immunity requires exposure and it might end up doing more harm than good on a societal level.

What’s gone wrong is the social contract whereby people accepted a level of risk in exchange for being able to go about their lives “normally”

How I learnt to hate the english (british) in 11 months..

Yes, the below is one of the best articles I’ve read about lockdown in the last 11 months. Spot on!

Lots of debate here about how the lockdown sceptics view never became popular opinion, when perhaps we ‘just’ needed to understand that britain is not the country we thought it was in the 21st century.

For example, we don’t have a conservative party any more (as hitchen’s has called out). Instead we simply have a b***ard child of tony blair.

However, watch in the next few years as the ‘woke brigade’ release that you need real money and a strong free economy for fairness and equality!

Their solution of course will be to spend / promise even more imaginary money / pass the buck….

426004 ▶▶▶ Jo Dominich, replying to Redundant Pilot, 3, #637 of 1244 🔗

NSPCC are a bunch of grossly incompetent money grabbing crooks. No good reporting child abuse to them. Some years ago there was a Court case in Swansea in which an Olympic swimming coach had for years been sexually abusing the young children who were wannabe olympians. Following many complaints over a number of years from their middle class parents, the Council asked the NSPCC to conduct an investigation. Their report was never known by the parents. A few years later he was arrested prosecuted and jailed. During the trial the NSPCC report was produced and made public. What the NSPCC had concluded was that there was evidence of sexual abuse but the parents would prefer for their children being coached to the abuse being dealt with. This caused national outrage as the parents had never been interviewed by the NSPCC and therefore had never made any such statements. This was proven in Court.

Also the Audit Commission found that 98% of money generated from their Full Stop campaign had gone on internal administration and not on services to children.

I copied Counciller David Durrant on one of my e-mails last week and got a much unexpected reply.

I won’t post it as there are some pretty personal comments in his subsequent correspondence but what I will put is his comment:

“I’ve had regular letters published in the local paper about it, and send all local councillors many messages and links, but little official progress, as it goes against the party line, but more are doubtful now. I ask the officers and senior councillors questions to put things in context, but they won’t answer either, as they’re working to a narrative/agenda set by government, just following orders, and make out those questioning it are in the wrong or worse. ”

“Alas its difficult to make people understand who are being paid not to understand, and so I fear only when the money runs out, when furlough ends, will the enormity of what’s happened really hit home.”

“the local Romford MP now votes against further lockdowns”

Sounds like he is still battling away at changing his local council’s thinking but making slow progress.

Headline: Kerry woman too weak to give evidence in cervical cancer case has died
TLDR Woman who was seeking compensation from the Irish State over a failure of a cervical smear to identify cancer, has died (thereby ending the case). Ireland’s CMO Tony Holohan played a part in downplaying the failures of this campaign but very few in Ireland can join the dots from his failure in this regard, to his “advice” re COVID.

Its not easier – the majority if us are constantly trying to provide a decent service to patients despite the ridiculous and ever changing restrictions imposed by managers, who don’t seem to understand that other conditions need to be treated, and this takes a lot of time and hassle but as others have said, we’re not able to speak out unless we are prepared to give up our jobs, and if we do that, patients will get even less of a service. Not quite sure why people can’t see that those of us who stick with the NHS do it because if we didn’t, there’d be even less chance of getting your cancer or anything else treated.

Telephone consultations are unsafe – we are accountable for our clinical decisions and there are many of us who refuse to put our patients and ourselves at risk by not examining and assessing them properly. When we refuse,this is unpopular and bullying takes place.

I have not had a cake from Captain Tom, but we did get a pizza last March from Dominoes. Just one.

Probably because they want to keep their jobs to pay their bills and don’t want to be sacked for gross misconduct because that would mean they would never get any other job in the future.

Wow Biggles. Thank you for posting this. I knew he was a supporter and member of the WEF and along with Hancock and Gove (possibly all his inner cabinet members for all I know) committed to delivering parts, if not all of The Great Reset, but until you posted this extract from The Telegraph I struggled to convince friends and relatives that the WEF and Great Reset were not just conspiracy theories to be dismissed with scorn. No wonder they are continually coming up with reasons to prolong lockdown restrictions and mandate vaccines by default! (NB. I read somewhere that after attending the WEF special conference on planning for a coronavirus pandemic, held in the USA in the summer of 2019, that Hancock had asked government lawyers in November 2019 whether it was possible for the government to make mass vaccination of the whole population of the UK mandatory! Unfortunately that was before the pandemic was actually announced by the WHO and I hadn’t started my resource list then with links to original sources so cannot find it again). Gates of course has not made any secret of his desire to see the world’s population reduced by 1/3rd and we all know he has heavily invested in vaccine development, as well as being a major funder of the W.HO.

The essay, or letter by Dr Graeme Munro-Hall and Dr Lilian Munro-Hall concerning the requirements of Saga cruise customers to have been vaccinated against Covid-19 is certainly worth LS members reading in full because there is a whole section of well-researched information about the safety issues involved in these experimental drugs, plus some useful references to legal arguments against their mandatory use.

The NHS/Gov dashboard indicates that they are carrying out around 500,000 dubious/dodgy ‘Covid’ test per day, from these they are getting around 12,000 ‘+ve test results’.
So 2.4% of the tests are giving dodgy +ve test results, can any of the statisticians out there tell me, given all the false result figures etc. how significant is this? 12,000 sounds a lot but if it is only 2.4% of the tests being done, does this not mean we are more or less as low as we can hope to get?
After all with speed cameras on roads there is generally a 10% + 2 mph tolerance before there is a conviction. And so I was wondering, hospitals are now doing fine and the number of covid patients has dropped considerably, total deaths are nothing startling for a damp country like the UK in winter time and with an ageing population and so if we also have dodgy +ve result-case numbers now down to relatively insignificant levels –

Nothing wrong with that, and I didn’t criticise it, but it risks being unbalanced and misleading without recognition that the “opposition”, far from opposing what the “Conservatives” were being criticised for, were actually pushing for more of it.

So I pointed that out, creating a balanced situation.

This is why I believe your ulterior motive here is to get Labour lockdowners into power, regardless what they themselves have done and wanted to do.

Not sure where you get this silly idea that referring to “whataboutery” somehow has some relevance here. The criticism only applies where it is a form of the tu quoque fallacy, which it clearly isn’t here.

Even then, most conventional applications of it as a criticism are false anyway, but that’s another matter.

Been having trouble getting my parents to understand where this is all heading and how they should be concerned. I realised the only way was to reframe the narrative and focus on the thing my father loves the most; the pub. The new normal appears to be that the state is responsible for all of our health, and therefore has the right to impose rules and regulations that protect us. In the near future, my father (who drinks too much and has to take meds for his liver and heart) will have to show his vaccine passport to enter the pub. But he doesn’t realise that his digital vaccine app also shows his full health history, including his alcohol related health issues. He will either not be permitted to enter the premises, or he will have to order a sparkling water instead of the usual pint. And that bacon burger and fries? Nope, sorry, that’s not allowed in here either.

Including the following:

  • The absolute sensitivity of the WANTAI SARS-CoV-2 Ab Rapid Test is unknown
  • The WANTAI SARS-CoV-2 Ab Rapid Test should not be used to diagnose or exclude acute infection and should not be used as the sole basis for treatment or patient management decisions
  • The WANTAI SARS-CoV-2 Ab Rapid Test should not be used to diagnose or exclude acute infection and should not be used as the sole basis for treatment or patient management decisions
  • in the event of a false positive result, risks to individuals could include the following: a recommendation for isolation of the individual, monitoring of household or other close contacts for symptoms, isolation that might limit contact with family or friends and may increase contact with other potentially COVID-19 individuals, limits in the ability to work, the delayed diagnosis and treatment for the true infection causing the symptoms, unnecessary prescription of a treatment or therapy, or other unintended adverse effects.
  • Due to the risk of false positive results, confirmation of positive results should be considered – using a second, different antibody assay that detects the same type of antibodies.
  • not all patients will develop a detectable antibody response to SARS-CoV-2 infection

Since I read the article that day and subsequent articles (which followed fast and furious thereafter), I have not once believed there was justification for any type of draconian control measures and certainly not lockdowns.

The small OffGuardian editorial team can hold their head high with pride in the fact that they have relentlessly sustained their attempts to hold the protagonists to account ever since, with in depth objective analyses of the “narrative” every few days over the twelve months since.

In terms of the potential harms, the complaint to the GMC gives some good information and food for thought

https://lockdownsceptics.org/complaint-to-gmc-about-mandatory-vaccines/

In terms of the potential benefits that an effective experimental vaccine might provide then this calculator is quite good

https://www.qcovid.org/Home/AcademicLicence?licencedUrl=%2FCalculation

Note that that is its intended use.

But it works out the chance that somebody would encounter SARS-C0V-2 and then die from or with covid during 3 months of the Spring 2020 wave.

Under certain assumptions you could argue as a very rough guess that the future risk that a theoretically effective vaccine might protect you against (if you’ve never tested positive for SARS-C0v-2 or had symptoms and aren’t living with someone whose had covid) is significantly less then that calculated risk.

Bear in mind that a theoretically effective vaccine won’t stop your death with covid only death from covid.

And if you’ve already encountered the virus (e.g. tested PCR positive or had obvious symptoms) then your risk of being affected by covid is probably nearer to zero, so forget about the calculator then.

And taking vitamin D3 (e.g. at least 2000IU) probably reduces your chances of dying from covid by perhaps two thirds, without all the side affects

“One day you will be called on to break a big law in the name of justice and rationality. You have to be ready. Everything will depend on it. How are you going to prepare for that day when it really matters? You have to stay ‘in shape’ so that when the big day comes you are ready…

…Every day or so break some trivial law that makes no sense, even if its jay walking. Use your own head to judge whether that is a reasonable thing to do. That way you’ll keep trim, you’ll be ready”

The unholy alliance of corporate and political greed continues unchallenged. It is a greed that cares not for the welfare of peoples or nations. It is the cause of engineered mass hysteria, it is the reason why so many must die in local conflicts or global wars.

It is so despicable and uncaring that the greater part of the people cannot believe it exists at all. They assign mass hysteria to pandemic, local war to fighting terrorism, and global war to a clash of national ideologies.

All the while, insidious greed and its currency control system enslave and corrupt our species. It cannot be changed, because it is not widely recognised. Those that recognise it can only go mad or learn to live with its presence. It will eventually destroy us. Meanwhile, the stupefied masses will continue to be surprised by the occasional proof of its existence.

Perhaps the logic is, all the cards that are put into the machine have been touched by filthy human hands.

Therefore, the slot might get contaminated with germs (in particular, a certain virus) and transfer said germs to her card.

The bank notes on the other hand have been sat in the machine a while, and are presumably considered to be safe. Nothing goes into that slot, only clean money comes out.

I have just had a massive row with them because they claim that people are “gathering”. I asked them to show me where. The park is large and there were about 25 people in it. They keep doing a sweep and spent several times this morning staring at us through our windows. These people are bastards. One of my customers who had been with a friend using one of the benches was moved on – he has just had the lower part of one of his legs amputated and is getting used to his prosthetic limb.

The real nasty bit was when they said to the customers consuming takeaways, that they could be responsible for the outlet that had sold them the drinks/food being targeted by the police. Let’s just say that that young man who, was ‘only trying to keep people safe’ got more than he bargained for today! He picked on the wrong angry middle-aged woman.

So it’s official: The sole point of testing is money, control and above all the denigration of the people and their conditioning through creating

BioNTech tei lt weiter mit : “Zudem waren ältere Personen mit folgenden chronischen Vorerkrankungen, die als Risikofaktoren für die COVID- 19-Erkrankung bei Menschen ab einem bestimmten Alter gelten, bis jetzt nicht zu den Studien zugelassen: Personen mit Bluthochdruck, Diabetes, chronischer Lungenerkrankung, Asthma, chronischer Lebererkrankung sowie chronischer Nierenerkrankung (GFR <60 mL/min/1,73 m2). Aus diesem Grund ist momentan noch unklar, ob ältere Personen mit den genannten chronischen Vorerkrankungen geimpft werden sollten. Eine Zusammenfassung möglicher Ausschlusskriterien und Vorsichtsmaßnahmen wird vorliegen, wenn die Studiendaten ausgewertet sind.”
Weiter führt BioNTech aus: “Für die Zulassungstudie von BNT162b wurden Ausschlusskriterien definiert, die online (z. B. unter clinicaltrials.gov) eingesehen werden können. Patienten, die eine bekannte klinische Vorgeschichte mit schweren Nebenwirkungen auf einen Impfstoff oder eine Allergie auf einen Bestandteil dieses Impfstoffs aufweisen, sind ebenso aus der Studie ausgeschlossen, wie Patienten, die Immunsuppressiva aufgrund einer anderen Erkrankung (z.B. Krebs oder Autoimmunkrankheiten) erhalten, oder Kortikosteroide einnehmen, oder eine klinisch relevante Vorgeschichte mit Blutgerinnungserkrankungen haben, die eine intramuskuläre Impfung verhindern. Trifft eines dieser Kriterien zu, ist von einer Impfung zum aktuellen Zeitpunkt abzuraten. Allergien sind von Relevanz, wenn sie gegen den Impfstoff selbst sowie einzelne Bestandteile vorliegen. Bitte stimmen Sie sich hierzu im Detail mit dem Arzt Ihres Vertrauens oder dem Impfzentrum ab.”

BioNTech continues: “In addition, older people with the following chronic pre-existing conditions, which are considered to be risk factors for COVID 19 disease in people over a certain age, have not yet been admitted to the studies: persons with high blood pressure, diabetes, chronic lung disease, asthma, chronic liver disease and chronic kidney disease (GFR <60 mL/min/1.73 m2). For this reason, it is still unclear whether older people should be vaccinated with these chronic pre-existing conditions. A summary of possible exclusion criteria and precautions will be available when the study data are evaluated.”

BioNTech continues: “For the approval study of BNT162b, exclusion criteria have been defined, which can be viewed online (e.B. under clinicaltrials.gov). Patients with a known clinical history of serious side effects on a vaccine or allergy to a component of that vaccine are excluded from the study, as are patients who receive immunosuppressants due to another disease (e..B. cancer or autoimmune diseases), or take corticosteroids, or have a clinically relevant history of blood clotting disorders that prevent intramuscular vaccination. If one of these criteria is met, vaccination is not recommended at this time. Allergies are relevant if they are against the vaccine itself as well as individual ingredients. Please coordinate in detail with the doctor of your trust or the vaccination centre.”

Being going through some old ONS death statistic releases from last year.

Some quotes keep jogging my memory like:

  • in the later months the slight increase in non-COVID-19 deaths might be attributed to indirect consequences of the pandemic such as delayed care.
  • The disease has had a larger impact on those most vulnerable (for example, those who already suffer from a medical condition) and those at older ages.
  • Some of these deaths would have likely occurred over the duration of the year but have occurred earlier because of COVID-19.
  • These deaths occurring earlier than expected could contribute to a period of deaths below the five-year average

Lots of other little snippets in them as well that point to they knew all along that the sicker in society were dying off just a little bit sooner than they would have but not by much but they just do not outright say it.

All in the file for the trial to come.

This just caught my eye, explains where pneumonia disappeared to:

“A death can be registered with both COVID-19 and Influenza and Pneumonia mentioned on the death certificate. Because pneumonia may be a consequence of COVID-19, deaths where both were mentioned have been counted only in the COVID-19 category.”

What IMO is more important is for there to be a realisation that what was done was wrong and unecessary so people are more awake next time. That probably won’t happen either but it will make more of a difference than punishments for the worst offenders – there will always be wicked people happy to risk retribution, but resisting the evil is what will get us out of this mess – that and some kind of constitutional reform- though public resistance is the most important

It has been pointed on the comments that even if lockdowns are lifted, one consequence is that people will not want to set up, expand or buy businesses due to the fear businesses can be closed or placed under restrictions that businesses could no longer be viable. I suspect this is exactly what the government wants. It has been argued the purpose of lockdown is to deliberately create mass unemployment which makes people dependant on the state either through universal credit or universal basic income which explains why so many businesses have been forced to close or operate under restrictions. If you are dependant on the government for your income, the government has control over you. The government can withdraw your benefit if you do something it doesn’t like eg protest. To ensure this dependancy continues, lockdowns are not just designed to destroy exisitng jobs but ensure no new jobs are created. For instance, jobs are lost in the restaurant trade due to restaurants going bust. If restaurants are allowed open, no new restaurant jobs will be created because nobody will want to take the risk of opening restaurants which could be closed again.

There is a huge number of things that cannot happen, even if allowed, only because of uncertainty.

Absolutely.
Remember also that they are already far further along with this destruction than most people or economists are willing to grasp.
An economy that contracted 10% with a Gov.debt/GDP increase of 20%age points and a previously roughly equally large share of the Gov.sector and the private sector, REALLY contracted 30%, it’s private sector REALLY contracted 60%! and the new share between the two is now 70%gov./30% private sector.
Add in, that you cannot just jump start a weakened or idled business, and that many of them are in far worse, often zombie, state than before, and the damage, task and direction are all pretty obvious.
It’s pure fascism, oligarchs plus civil servants against the rest of the people.

Anyone who thinks businesses can re-open and be viable are living in cloud cuckoo land. These are some of the difficulties businesses are going to face even if allowed to re-open :-

  • We have had summer and winter lockdowns. Many businesses depend on their trade during certain times of the year. Tourist dependant businesses usually do most of their trade in the summer months. In the first lockdown businesses were not allowed to open until late in the summer which meant businesses had lost a large part of the summer trade. Christmas is important for shops and restaurants as shops receive a lot of their trade in the Chrismas period and restaurants receive a lot of trade from Christmas office parties. If restaurants couldn’t open during Christmas, they will have lost critical trade.
  • Long term changes could deprive businesses of trade. For instance, if more people work from home businesses dependant on commuters such as coffee shops will have lost trade.
  • Clothes shops will have summer and winter clothing. If they are forced to close during winter and are unable to open until summer, they will have winter stock they can’t sell.
  • If some businesses are able to open whilst others can’t, this will make businesses able to open unviable. For instance, hotels are allowed to reopen but visitor attractions can’t. Hotels would loose trade as it would be pointless for people to visit with no attractions open.
  • If events such as festivals are cancelled, this would result in businesses loosing critcal trade.
  • Almost a year of not being to open at all or open under crippling restrictions makes it very difficult for businesses to survive.
  • Businesses missing out on events which generate a lot of income. For instance, wedding can be very lucrative for hotels. Almost a year of weddings not being to go ahead or operate under restrictions has deprived hotels of vital income.
  • Businesses will face problems if their suppliers go bust.

Zero COVID exposed.

With UK and Ireland Government “plans” in increasing disarray and ever lengthening lockdowns, there is surely a serious risk of a Zero COVID approach becoming adopted (if it isn’t happening already).

In Ireland, independent media outlet GRIPT obtained some leaked documents from an insider in the Independent Scientific Advisory Group (founders of WECANBEZERO, the zero COVID fanatics). These documents go some way towards exposing that the promises made by Zero COVID proponents are nothing more than a wish list with no scientific basis and that they don’t even agree with each other (Translation : They are full of shit).  All they offer is harder lockdown and, probably, with no end.

The Irish Gov plan is called “Living with COVID” – this is widely seen to have failed. The Zero COVID plan is called “Living without COVID” (how clever is that?).  This will fail also and cause even more damage. I don’t know how this can be stopped apart from exposing these people at every opportunity, but the way things are going we will forever be “Living without living” if it continues.

One listens to the BBC with some trepidation these days. Sure enough on More or Less some expert was making the case that deaths due to Covid are somehow under-reported! His reasoning went: there are in fact more death certificates with Covid as a contributing factor than there are deaths within 28 days of a Covid test. He thus entirely disregarded all those deaths (thousands, tens of thousands) where someone was dying of something else but just happened to contract Covid and was tested near the end. Honestly, what piffle!

Sadly it is very true.
These are patients who suffer with sometimes severe dementia, so most likely a relative or social worker will have given permission for the vaxx to go ahead. Of course the patients do not know what is going on, their routine is disturbed by 4 strangers which are masked up and in funny clothes coming in, get the job done. No attempt to communicate what is going on etc. Demented people sadly can get very violent, so they would have used force.

If I were such a woman, I would want to know how many in the vaccine group and how many in the control group got pregnant after being vaccinated and what the birth outcomes were and would like to see a year or two of child development stats for each group as well as stats on the health of the mothers

I can’t recall exactly when the trials were but it takes 9 months to produce a child and the numbers in the trials were quite low (I think Pfizer was 30,000 in each group so 15,000 women, only a certain % of which would have been of childbearing age and a much lower % would have actually fallen pregnant)

My recollection is that both Pfizer and AstraZeneca excluded pregnant women and people on medication from the trials. Guidance given by the manufacturers once emergency approval was given was that females who were pregnant should not have the vaccine and any females should refrain from conceiving within two months following vaccination. And people on medication were advised not to be vaccinated either. This all seems to have been ‘forgotten’ very swiftly but I am not sure on what basis, being that the trials produced no evidence of safety in these cohorts.

Agreed. What a powerful piece of analysis. Really brings home the suffering being meted out to children throughout all this. Kids don’t bounce back easily, despite what the despots seem to believe, and the younger they are, the more impressionable and the more long lasting the damage. It doesn’t take much to do the damage either. A few months of consistent and sustained abuse like this in a kids developmental and formative years will stay with them all their lives. I am so angry at the evident lack of concern about this by our elected politicians and the so-called scientists and health care leaders in our country. Enough of the semantics. Enough of the ‘we understand how difficult this is’. No, you don’t understand. If you did you would not be inflicting this pain, misery and suffering on countless children and their families. Enough.

BBC live feed: Anti-vaccination protests held in Australia ahead of rollout

Anti-vaccination protesters have gathered across Australia ahead of the launch of the country’s coronavirus inoculation programme.

Protests were held in cities including Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, with participants chanting slogans like: “My body, my choice.”

The rallies were largely peaceful, but police made several arrests in Melbourne, local media reported.

The national rollout of the Pfizer vaccine is set to begin on Monday.

Australia’s medical regulator earlier this week also granted provisional approval for the vaccine developed by AstraZeneca and Oxford University, which is expected to be rolled out next month.

A country that has gone for a zero Covid strategy, and has hardly any Covid cases is going to start vaccinating people with Pfizer next week and AZ next month.

How will they explain the deaths when they come, I wonder?

Our reporter, Winston Smith, who is outside 1984 Downing Street, has heard that, following the huge amount of readers comments on the Daily Mail article by Bell Moony (see earlier posts) questioning whether deaths may have been misattributed to Covid-19, the government has launched an immediate internal enquiry to see if the over 100,000 death figure is a massive over inflation and the government is thus not to blame.

The corporate promotion of manadatory ‘vaccination’ against SARS-CoV-19 is fundamentally and dangerously flawed.

The proponents are assuming that the drugs on offer provide lifetime or long-term immunity from the disease. They do not. They offer only slight reduction of some symptoms in some mild cases of the disease. They do not prevent the patient from catching the disease, passing it on once caught or even dying in severe cases of the disease. The proponents are encouraging reckless behaviour by the so-called ‘vaccinated’ population.

The validity of the medical term ‘vaccine’ for the drugs should be questioned and tested by both the medico-legal experts and trading standards.

They can’t be mandated or not without difficulties and hence no doubt why the message/idea of vaccine passorts is being put out- re travel and jobs. To use fear and to try and manipulate and coerce people into having when most if not all people don’t actually need. I agree with you, there is no justification or sense for vaccine passports for the reasons that you spell out. There is no evidence of any of them providing any immunity and as you say simply the reduction of “mild” symptoms for some. Mild- a cough, a runny nose, a fever? High dose Vit c etc can help those! They are still in trials and experimental, and there are a huge amount of very serious adverse reactions being reported. And we haven’t started on discrimination, human rights and data protection laws and issues. If it has to go that far there needs to be a decent legal team to take to take this to court. I am sure crowdfunding the cost of this would be very easy..

Due to lockdown it hasn’t been at all socialised: No puppy classes, no normal meeting up with people, other dog’s, other people,no strangers in the house and is absolutely terrified of every other dog and humans in general. It won’t come to us and cowers in fear, scared of it’s own shadow.

Just read the critique of Ferguson’s dodgy modelling by Derek Winton. I would like to add that in addition to failing to account for the seasonality of a respiratory virus, he also assumed a population completely naive to this Coronavirus, in other words, it was assumed that no-one had any prior immunity conferred by the other 4 coronaviruses that jave long been in circulation. Numerous papers have now been published indicating cross-reactivity of T-cells between this coronavirus and the others. Clearly those individuals who shrug off Covid19 asymptomatically are effectively already immune and this could have been inferred even last February by the situation on the Diamond Princess: a veritable petri dish of coronavirus infection which resulted in 72% of passengers having no symptoms – this alone should have given pause for thought as to how much prior immunity might exist in the population.

Just checked the latest NHS/Gov dashboard up-date;
560,400 tests carried out per day from this they got 10,406 dodgy +ve test results
By my shaky maths that = 1.86% of tests gave a +ve result.
I understand our ‘Dear Leader’ wants the +ve test result figure to get down to 1000,
if they carry on with over half a millions tests per day then to get to 1000 +ve test results that would equate to 0.18% of tests giving a +ve test result or 99.82% of tests proving -ve.
Given what we know about the sampling and the testing is this statistically or technically possible? It seems to me that trying to get down to 1000 +ve tests per day is like trying to clear the last few grains of sand from the beach!

I put this as a comment on my local paper’s website and also sent it to the local public health director

The current rate for Leicester is 252.1 per 100000, for the county it ranges between 162 per 100000 and 215 per 100000. Corby is 317 per 100000. Converting these to percentages gives 0.25, 0.16, 0.22, 0.32 % (to 2 decimal places) respectively.
The specificity of the Lateral Flow Test is at best 99.68% for RT-PCR the specificity is between 96% and 99% depending on the number of cycles used.
Specificity is the percentage of negatives detected in a sample where you would expect 100% negatives.
If the specificity is less than 100% then the remainder will show as positive. Therefore, for a sample of 100000 being tested with LFT where all should be negative, the test will show a minimum of 99680 negatives with up to 320 (false) positives.
Therefore, these rates, even Corby’s, are compatible with the specificity of the test, all falling in the false positive range, and hence these ‘cases’ are a statistical anomaly and could be ignored.
It also means that a target of less than 1000 a day is impossible to achieve or prove through regular testing as there will always be a number of false positives, 1000 a day false positives may only require 300000 tests a day to be performed across the whole of England, basically only testing Leicester every day could throw up this number by itself.

Forgive me if this has been mentioned before but I came across this the other day. You know if they’d told us at Christmas we’d still be locked up in Spring or Summer, people would have rightly rebelled – so they lengthen it in small increments to increase adherence.

‘China’s Salami Slicing’ is a thing. “The slow accumulation of small actions, none of which is a casus belli, but which add up over time to a major strategic change”

My Mum’s partner, who is 88 had a turn yesterday, with an extremely bad headache. He has been experiencing high blood pressure of late, so paramedic was called who recommended attendence at A&E.

Ambulance service suggested that she take him as it would be a lot quicker, which she did. A&E took 8 hours to deal with him, during which time my mother was forced to sit in a corridor with a face mask on the entire time.

Today, she has a chest infection, no doubt brought on by rebreathing her own breath for such a long time.

Warming us up for next winter’s lockdowns already:

Experts have warned the world may face a dramatic resurgence of flu next winter, after social distancing measures cut the virus to levels not seen for over a century.

Scientists fear that falling immunity levels to influenza – normally sustained by seasonal circulation of the virus – could now pave the way for one of the worst flu outbreaks for years.

“If I had to gamble on it, then I would guess that we are likely to get a more severe epidemic in the coming winter – assuming restrictions are fully lifted by then,” said Prof John Edmunds, of the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine and a member of the government’s Sage committee of scientific advisors.

There will be bad outbreaks of respiratory viruses next autumn I’m sure and partly due to hiding away and building up no immunity for a year. Also if what I am reading is correct these vaccines are ” priming” people for much worser reactions to coronaviruses in the future including the common cold. Instead of getting over the latter in a few days naturally for some poor vaccinated folk ADE may occur. Most have heard of ADE now which is very serious and could be fatal.

426418 ▶▶▶ Lisa (formerly) from Toronto, replying to Suzyv, 3, #1040 of 1244 🔗

This is precisely what will happen next respiratory illness season. In addition to out-of-practice immune systems and the potential for ADE due to the Covid “vaccine,” I would also add that the sheeple will add the flu vaccine into the mix which also makes one more susceptible to other respiratory infections. I have a bad feeling that next winter will make March/April 2020 look like a walk in the park.

From the Telegraph (paywall).

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2021/02/19/government-discusses-campaign-encourage-people-return-public/

Extract (my emphasis):

Officials are in discussions with transport groups about advertising campaigns and Government advice to help bolster confidence in using public transport later this year .
. . .
Adam Marshall, the director general of the British Chambers of Commerce, told The Telegraph that state help would be needed in “restoring confidence in the use of public transport” to encourage staff to return to “workplaces in our major cities” when restrictions ease.

Ahead of the Prime Minister setting out a roadmap out of lockdown on Monday, Mr Marshall said businesses had highlighted “workforce confidence issues around public transport” in the months ahead.

He said such fears could be allayed by boosting public awareness about the stringent safety and security measures deployed by transport companies, including regular cleaning and reduced capacity [and face nappies] .

So how might your average sheep-person view the situation on public transport?

1) Everyone’s wearing muzzles and the place is regularly hosed down with disinfectant, so it must be a safe place; I’ll use it.

2) Everyone’s wearing muzzles and the place is regularly hosed down with disinfectant, so there’s obviously something inherently unsafe with the place; I won’t use it.

Current thinking by the government and “experts” seems to be along the lines of 1). However, surely most sheeple would opt for 2), wouldn’t they? Accordingly, wouldn’t it make sense to remove all the stupid restrictions?

426389 ▶▶ The Mask Exempt Covid Marshall, replying to Tenchy, 5, #1069 of 1244 🔗

I thought this might be the next step in the regime’s war on the people, focusing on those of us who have ignored their diktats up to now.

They will announce a [temporary] reopening of the economy in spring/summer – emphasising the importance of office workers to go back to work to help the local economy, it will be this year’s “eat out to help out.”

They’ll advise employers to ensure their workers are either vaccinated or tested weekly along with the rest of the dehumanising rituals we’re being forced to take part in. Employers will be keen to enforce such rules believing they will be allowed to remain open.

Until now those of us who work from home have been able to avoid the testing, mask wearing, etc. But this could put a lot of us in a situation where we are forced to comply or loose our jobs. Its one thing to refuse to wear a mask when going shopping but completely different if you’re being pressured by your employer.

It will also be a way of increasing uptake of the ‘vaccinations’ by the under 50s – no jab no job.

This fits in with how the regime is operating – forced compliance. They don’t want to bring in legislation forcing people to do everything, they want us to voluntarily do things we don’t want to do such as wering masks – it’s to humiliate us – these people are sadists.

From January but I find it amusing.

Racecourse vaccination centre to shut for day to allow horse racing to continue
A racecourse which is hosting a Covid-19 vaccination hub that provides up to 1,500 jabs daily is temporarily halting the service to enable its horse racing to continue.
Newbury Racecourse in Berkshire opened its vaccination hub on Thursday last week as part of the nationwide drive to inoculate against the virus.
But less than a week later, the centre will shut for a day on Wednesday for a scheduled race day.

Yes its a race day, they have them now and again but they are closing the jabadrome because its not being used, they could do what they do there from a portacabine in Tesco’s car park.

I have been past it a few times, it’s really really not busy, a trickle of customers even at it’s peak. 1500 jabs a day, I really don’t believe that. Perhaps that’s how many they could do at peak capacity. How many they have done is another matter.

Pathetic.
oops just read it’s from January Still its empty now and they are even more pathetic than they were in January .

Very careful wording — tested positive rather than died from. Could have been a suicide or drug overdose and so long as there was a positive PCR in the last month the story is “technically” correct but unbelievably misleading. The autopsy issue is a big one; I can guarantee I’d insist on one if anyone in my family died “with” Covid or died after the “vaccine.”

Given there’s more chance of a lightning strike the death of a 16 year old must surely call for an autopsy. As for the sad case of the 13 day old baby did they actually test? That would be truly bizarre.

It’s about a man arrested for looking sad, when the government have decreed that everyone must look happy.

My Daughter and her Daughter, aged 23 and 2 respectively, came round to my house for Brunch at 11.00am.

We had a great time. Normal family time. Grand daughter sat on my knee for 10 minutes – great!

These kind of family meetings generate more feelings of love than anything else for me. Many others in the UK need to see family to feel love. How the hell can the British people accept willingly that the natural behavior that results in the feeling of love is illegal? Boris needs to swing. He has this wrong. Contrast this with France, where absolutely anyone can visit you in your home. Anyone. France is paradise compared to the regime imposed by Boris the regime dictator.

Also, the copper who lives opposite me chose to ignore my family arriving to eat brunch. He has his own visitors, and is privately, like me, looking after the mental health of his daughter and his family. My curtains were open.

“PLZ I DON’T LIKE THIS.” (“What Children are Really Being Taught at Home”)

Out of the mouths of children we still hear wisdom adults have long been conditioned to forget. The wisdom of living beings who desire to live and learn freely and fully, unconfined by the prisons from industrial schooling to online indoctrination adapting humans to social engineering for our reduced roles as robotic extensions of the machinery of production.

One of the most glaring insults added to injury in the New Normal’s discipline is how we’re all apparently to be infantilized as docile students of the corporate state, and its lies as truth, into the most abject dependency upon authoritarian control, with Big Brother a friendly, fatherly fascist (resembling Bill Gates perhaps) teaching us to be happily content with any ‘knowledge’ amounting to 2+2 equaling 5.

Those who ‘follow the science’ (aka the officially bought and paid for experts*) are following the social sciences of mass manipulation into mindless conformity to the rationalized irrationality necessary for the maintenance of all the many abuses of power over others which are taught us from earliest age.

To really revolt against the techno-tyranny now set with the Great Reset to reach completion with our digitized enslavement requires a resurrection of our more primal memories as embodied social beings, far beyond our confinement to that most oxymoronic Orwellianism of ‘social media’.

I was going to comment on your previous post about the “four steps” out of lockdown by referencing this shite by Steve Baker but you got there first.

Objective achieved whichever way you look at it. A population and media that “believe” in what we warned would happen 12 months ago. The juggernaut can’t be stopped. Forced vaccination through coercion, whether that be family, friends, coworkers or removal of your basic rights.

I give up.

Nauseating; what a wanker indeed!
applaud the brilliant work of the NHS
I keep thinking of all of the thousands, the so called ‘collateral damage’ of the tsunami of despair and misery visited upon us by these lunatics. The suicides, the people too frightened to call for, or get, medical attention and who died at home; those who caught the bloody virus in hospital; those denied cancer screening and treatments and all of those who will suffer needlessly into the future.

Tonight the UK is making a determined effort to get into a podium position. It is now fourth overall in deaths per million, but closing up rapidly on Czechia in 3rd place who themselves are only marginally behind Slovenia in 2nd. The long time leader Belgium themselves are now in the UK sights. It may only take another week at current rates before the UK claims that No1 position so clearly prized by all at Sage and Government.
Don’t let people tell you that the UK has lost sight of this prize during its mad dash to vaccinate anything that moves, no , its still firmly on track to demonstrate its return to global dominance.

Today was the first plesent day of the year, apart from the howling wind. Anyway after a brisk walk I built up a bit of a sweat so I removed my jacket, then it dawned on me after walking passed a muzzled up zombie, where I so wanted to berate him. If only there was a way I can show my displeasure at these idiots without actually doing directly. T-Shirts with anti-lockdown, mask, vaccine, media messages on them. If we all walked around with them we would get either one of two reactions either people will ask where can I get that or start an argument with me for which I will give them back with both barrels. Now I want idea’s what messages I can get printed on T-shirts front and back. Some idea’s of mine.

Face masks do nothing to protect you, they make you ill instead.

Look into there eyes, and tell them why you never gave covid patients Ivermectin, murderers.

The cull of man has began, open your eyes and not your sleeves.

You will own nothing and be happy, the real reason for this covid bollox

look at there eyes and tell me you support the deaths of MILLIONS that lockdown will cause.

Facebook can’t censor my T-shirt. Covid is a scam!!

Welcome to police state Britain, well you asked for it!!

Remember when we went on demo’s and the police swamped us, well I’m not sure how the police can shut us up this way. Imagine if thousands walked around busy hgh streets wearing t-shirts like this. Even their covid legislation can’t stop this.

Give me lots of slogans and I’ll see if we can get them printed. The more confrontational in my opinion the better.

The hard fact is that those who are wearing masks or are terrified will either take no notice at all, or just mutter something like ‘Tosser!’ and walk on. You might get into confrontation with the odd nutter – but that’s about it.

I started a list of slogans back in April. I got a mask from Etsy that says I’m Being Forced to Wear This but I can’t tolerate wearing a mask and so it’s rarely been seen. Here’s my list, for what it’s worth (some original but not all).

Seen But Not Herd
Mass(ked) Hysteria

Herd Immunity Mentality

Silence of the Lambs

Passing off an experimental gene therapy as a “vaccine” that protects you from contracting and transmitting a not-very-deadly virus is fraud and a crime against humanity.

to be fair most people get the same takeaway every time so they don’t actually spend much time thinking about it. Though anyone dumb enough to take the vaccine deserves what they get. They gave it to old Tom and now he’s pan bread and then they gave it to Prince Philip and it’s looking like he’s playing his last over.

I have my doubts that you’re getting much support from parents about the total devastation you’ve caused to the children’s education.
please spare me your Orwellian remote learning nonsense. Kids go to school to be schooled. If they could do it themselves, we wouldn’t need schools. Schools should be standing up to the government and demanding the children come back not sending out fantasy emails about remote learning. Does my child not matter? Does he not deserve an education? Does he not need to be outside with friends playing sports and socialising? Have you the first clue about what you are doing to the children? Do you even care? What future will he have after all of this? Teachers should be demanding schools be open. I am bitterly disappointed with all this. I could list many, many countries where the children are at school but what would be the point.

sent that to my sons school after they sent me an email thanking parents for all their support for the schools excellent work durning the last year despite the circumstances. they actually said this in their email. they sucked before this shite but fucking hell these people are deluded spineless cowards. It’s been nearly a week since i sent them an email but i guess they’re to busy to respond.

I take every opportunity I get to point out to everyone I know how immoral it is to close schools, colleges and universities and deny our young their education.
