This glacial exit from lockdown is not cautious, restrictions are not cautious, lockdown is not cautious, it is disastrous.

Restrictions are extremely damaging.

Saying a glacial exit from lockdown is cautious is like saying a slight reduction in the number of times Frank Bruno punches you is cautious.

Still why miss an easy chance to introduce draconian powers by a nasty government.

It was clear that ‘public health’ would be a danger once it was elevated last decade.

The most murderous phase of the French Revolution was during the rule the ‘Committee For Public Safety ‘.

449414 ▶▶▶ Annie, replying to karenovirus, 4, #14 of 1267 🔗

The word used was actually salut , which is closer to ‘salvation’ than ‘safety’. The Committee turned bloodshed into a dogma.

It wasn’t a human rights paradise before them or after them. In the 1960s, Sihanouk’s police disembowelled members of a music group for singing songs deemed subversive, and displayed their livers outside the police station. Sihanouk was overthrown by Lon Nol, which gave rise to an anti-Chinese pogrom.

450082 ▶▶▶ J4mes, replying to Annie, 4, #33 of 1267 🔗

Regarding environmental messaging hypocrisy on a more local level, we have the issue of massive amounts of litter being left behind by the council when they come to collect recyclable waste. Our local council policy is that recycled waste must not go in refuse bags, so when they come to collect it, the litter gets flung all over the place.

So here we have the public doing their bit for the environment (while simultaneously dumping their muzzles everywhere), separating their rubbish, even cleaning it when necessary, just for the council to chuck it all over the place – and usually gathers in my bloody garden!

We live in a maddening world.

the public face of the BBC’s “climate catastrophe” lies and scaremongering

449400 Steve Hayes, replying to Steve Hayes, 99, #35 of 1267 🔗

Times are hard for satirists.

https://youtu.be/EtwFoTzVdZs

In the above video Boris Johnson tells us all to exercise. He extolls the health benefits. He even tells us that his government is promoting exercise. And he does all this with a straight face.

Johnson is, of course, right in saying that exercise is beneficial. He is also correct in claiming that it should be encouraged. Indeed, lack of exercise is the major public health problem. But claims to be promoting exercise from the leader who dictatorially imposed lockdown (on 23 March 2020 for three weeks, which is constantly extended into the near future by ever changing rationales), placing people under virtual house arrest looks like nothing so much as a flagrant attempt to steal the work of satirists.

In the video Boris deftly dismisses any notion that closing gymnasiums might have made it more difficult for people to take exercise by pointing out there are apps on your phone, neatly eliding reality and virtual reality, with a clear preference for the latter: appearance over substance.

So the fact that sport has been shut down (except for the elite), that exercise can only be taken with members of one’s household, that the police harass people for exercising, that corporate media so called journalists aided and abetted by so called experts demonise people who choose to run or cycle (which other than walking is the only exercise we are allowed) is nothing to be concerned about because there are apps.

What is a poor satirist supposed to do when the leader of the country spouts such nonsense? How can one caricature the blatantly absurd?

449411 ▶▶ nottingham69, replying to Steve Hayes, 55, #36 of 1267 🔗

The stay indoors and ban exercise policy on health grounds is completely counter productive. The national weight gain this winter though will be huge, bringing yet more people into serious bad health red zones.

The cynical among us may believe Bunter has another agenda.

450194 ▶▶▶ Rowan, replying to nottingham69, 8, #37 of 1267 🔗

The stay at home and rot policy might well prove productive, if the real aim of government is depopulation. Of course, the main tools of the depopulation agenda are the Covid terminator vaccines, that clearly aren’t vaccines, but lack of exercise will certainly help things along a bit. As they say at Tesco, every little helps.

449423 ▶▶ Dobba, replying to Steve Hayes, 41, #38 of 1267 🔗

Exercise is important, agreed – but it means nothing if you’re shovelling shit into your mouth on a daily basis. Food is the public health crisis and until we change that and peoples perception of what is in it that is causing us to get heart disease, cancer, COPD, diabetes etc then going for a jog or walk will do little.

449431 ▶▶▶▶ Dobba, replying to Steve Hayes, 25, #40 of 1267 🔗

Hey! I’m not denouncing sport at all – do a shit ton myself but people think that going for a jog or walking a few miles will counteract the food they eat. Sprinting (and I mean absolutely pegging it) for one mile will burn less than 100 calories. A 5 Mile walk around 300 calories. Then we eat and drink a load of shit and wonder why we’re not losing weight. ‘But I exercise’. You don’t.

449470 ▶▶▶▶▶ TJN, replying to Dobba, 7, #41 of 1267 🔗

Yes, but if you do lots of exercise your body craves good food, and naturally rejects the garbage. And when you’re at your correct weight for the day, you don’t feel the urge to carry on eating.

That’s my experience anyway.

449475 ▶▶▶▶▶▶ Fiona Walker, replying to TJN, 6, #42 of 1267 🔗

You need to hang out with some parkrunners TJN – it is literally all about cake and buns and brownies and flapjacks. I accept that sprinters, cross fitters and weight lifters may be different.

449570 ▶▶▶▶▶▶▶ Annie, replying to Fiona Walker, 2, #43 of 1267 🔗

I LOVE cake and buns and brownies, but not flapjacks, so maybe I may yet reach Nirvana.

449572 ▶▶▶▶▶▶▶ TJN, replying to Fiona Walker, 3, #44 of 1267 🔗

I’m speaking mainly from a swimming point of view – which I can’t do right now. But I find when I’m training I instinctively want good food, and stop eating when I don’t need anymore. Don’t mind the treats of course, but they do become just that.

But it must be easy to slip the other way, and become addicted to the next sugar rush, caffeine, or coca cola hit. Lockdown will have done much to engender that.

I’ll probably be banned from swimming pools from now on, as I won’t have had the jab. Still, another 6 weeks and the sea will become possible (for me!) again.

449925 ▶▶▶▶▶▶▶▶ lorrinet, replying to TJN, 4, #45 of 1267 🔗

They’re probably searching for a variant in sea water right now.

450133 ▶▶▶▶▶▶▶▶ TreeHugger, replying to TJN, 2, #46 of 1267 🔗

We walk daily at the coast in Kent. Never have i seen so many swimmers during the winter, there are dozens of loonies braving the cold water. I crave a swim, but no way I’m getting in the freezing English Channel until at least May!

450242 ▶▶▶▶▶▶▶▶▶ TJN, replying to TreeHugger, #47 of 1267 🔗

Yep, late April to May for me – even in a wetsuit!

450478 ▶▶▶▶▶▶▶▶▶ Alpine, replying to TreeHugger, #48 of 1267 🔗

Where in Kent? My sister is a Kent sea swimmer, and we have travelled from London to join her a fair few times over the winter (Folkestone, Tankerton, Hythe…)

450197 ▶▶▶▶▶▶▶▶ Rowan, replying to TJN, 2, #49 of 1267 🔗

Don’t worry too much, as sooner rather than later, we the unvaccinated will have the pools all to ourselves. Though, we may have to take turns at stoking the boiler and checking the chlorine levels.

450245 ▶▶▶▶▶▶▶▶▶ TJN, replying to Rowan, 1, #50 of 1267 🔗

Ummm – Heaven knows where this will end. Seriously.

449728 ▶▶▶▶▶▶▶ dhpaul, replying to Fiona Walker, #51 of 1267 🔗

Speak for yourself! On the parkrun that I go to in normal times, the cake and coffee crowd are a very small minority.

449473 ▶▶▶▶▶ Fiona Walker, replying to Dobba, 9, #52 of 1267 🔗

As a regular competitive runner over many years I found that the phrase “you can’t outrun a bad diet” is sadly true. Weight loss is 80% food intake and 20% exercise – I always put on weight pre-marathon despite the regular twenty mile training runs. And it’s a fact that about 90% of runners do it just for the cake.

449641 ▶▶▶▶▶ ElizaP, replying to Dobba, 2, #53 of 1267 🔗

…and somewhere or other I read that it’s surprising how many calories one burns just from being a fidget. Up/down/twist around and generally can’t sit still in one’s own home.

449750 ▶▶▶▶▶ Steve Hayes, replying to Dobba, 1, #54 of 1267 🔗

No one can sprint for a mile. The longest time that any human being can sustain a sprint is twenty seconds.

449451 ▶▶▶ nottingham69, replying to Dobba, 6, #55 of 1267 🔗

No you can’t out-train a bad diet, although exercise always means something. Getting quality fruit and veg in any big supermarket isn’t easy, much looks ready for the bin , not to sell but the government let’s them stay open. If there was one area I wouldn’t have minded shutting it was was big supermarkets.

449457 ▶▶▶▶ Dobba, replying to nottingham69, 12, #56 of 1267 🔗

Hello to my native city. 😊 It does – but it’s one step forwards two steps back. There’s plenty of fruit and veg in supermarkets – the quality of it variable admittedly but a microwave meal or high sugar and bad fats is easy and more appealing to most. Food education should be fundamental in schools other than baking cakes and at home by parents. We’ve been programmed to fall for advertising (more so these day) when the best route for health is more whole foods and less shit.

Simple equation: eat/drink less shit + exercise more.

449461 ▶▶▶▶▶ fiery, replying to Dobba, 9, #57 of 1267 🔗

Absolutely agree. I think the equation should be given to overweight nurses.

449476 ▶▶▶▶▶▶ Fiona Walker, replying to fiery, 8, #58 of 1267 🔗

All that dancing didn’t cancel out the cupcake intake did it 😂 !

449701 ▶▶▶▶▶▶ Dobba, replying to fiery, 18, #59 of 1267 🔗

So true. As an ex-NHS employee (not clinical – medical illustration department) who went all over the hospital from wards to theatre I was amazed how unhealthy the people were that worked there. It was like the walking dead – and that’s just the staff. During theatre operations there’s trays of pizza and cakes and sandwiches brought in throughout the day for people to eat during procedures. The NHS is a business – it’s not about health I found. Eye opener.

449740 ▶▶▶▶▶▶▶ Robin Birch, replying to Dobba, 8, #60 of 1267 🔗

It’s Captain Tom’s fault – didn’t a chunk of the £30M go to buy comfort food for our hardworking NHS folks. The only problem being that a lot of them haven’t had much work to do. What a rotter he turned out to be.

449790 ▶▶▶▶▶▶▶▶ Steve F, replying to Robin Birch, 7, #61 of 1267 🔗

And most of them plainly didn’t need any more food.

449591 ▶▶▶▶ Bart Simpson, replying to nottingham69, 25, #64 of 1267 🔗

If you shut big supermarkets, the people in my area would have starved as we have no markets and our high street was decimated a long time ago so it’s now non-existent.

That’s the reason why I get angry with lockdownistas who bang on about “staying at home” and “staying local.” For many people “local” means no decent shops and no amenities.

449870 ▶▶▶▶ Silke David, replying to nottingham69, 5, #65 of 1267 🔗

I buy almost all my fruit and veg on the market. Much cheaper, locally sourced (I buy in season), probably fresher.

i used to too but havent been back since a run in with the stasi gestapo guards there . no way am i wearing a mask there . i even wrote to one of the nice farmers that would be back when no masks but got no reply .

i wonder if they know they a re losing customers because of the zombie rule although maybe i really am in the minority a more scary thought than the zombies

449586 ▶▶ Bart Simpson, replying to Steve Hayes, 38, #67 of 1267 🔗

That’s pretty much vindicated my thought from the beginning that this long ago ceased to be about a virus.

And of course “protect the NHS” is a joke because the NHS will be overwhelmed alright but not by Covid. It will be untreated illnesses, illnesses acquired because of lockdown, mental health issues, substance abuse, domestic violence.

When the NHS start wailing about those I will point out that they were complicit in their own problems.

449735 ▶▶▶ Ovis, replying to Bart Simpson, 1, #68 of 1267 🔗

I assume the House of Commons has its own gym, though? Just as it has a smoking-room. We should demand use of them, after all, they belong to us and we pay for them, just as we pay for all the damned perks denied to the rest of us – the ‘commons’ – whose House it is.

450096 ▶▶ J4mes, replying to Steve Hayes, 14, #71 of 1267 🔗

I regularly point out the fact top-level football has continued (without the presence of the peasants in the stands). Millionaire pansies are permitted to kick a football round, hug each-other, spit everywhere, shake hands, etc, then as soon as the match is finished, on goes the muzzle and they’re ferried away together on a bus.

On the other hand, golf is banned, where competitors mostly find themselves hundreds of yards apart, tennis is banned, archery is banned, moto racing, badminton, baseball, canoe/kayak, cricket, rock-climbing, sport cycling, equestrian (to prevent the horse catching corona off the rider I guess), skiing, etc, ad infinitum…

Why can’t the general public see the ridiculous double-standards? (A rhetorical question)

450154 ▶▶▶ Javy, replying to J4mes, 5, #72 of 1267 🔗

This is a mystery to me too J4ames. How can it be OK for all those footballers and rugby players to carry on hugging, tackling, back slapping etc. when everyone else has to keep their distance from each other ? I’ve been waiting for one of the media journalists to ask this at the daily TV updates but not heard a peep about it so far….

Good point, in fact in my email to the agency I used the word ‘compelled’, however the issue is that any mask wearing introduces a barrier to communication and results in classroom management problems. I speak from experience.

Apropos ATL item 2, Schools.
Local Live online (mirror group news) 5/3/21.

‘A growing army of parents are demanding schools go back to how they were run before the Pandemic.

Mums and dads have cited the ‘harm’ enforced Covid 19 measures have on children in the past year.

A campaign group called Fight For Our Kids has been founded by mum-of-four Tara Porter who says she cannot sit back and watch her children suffer more.

Her campaign is calling for.
● No more testing in schools
● No more masks in school for teachers and children
● No ‘bubbles’
● No social distancing.

Tara has organised a strike day both locally and nationally for Monday 15th March when parents will take their children out of school to peacefully protest on the streets.’

Tara’s local group is said to number 300.

I had the misfortune to work for the NHS for many years and I was appalled at the theft (almost considered a ‘perk of the job’), waste, fraud and corruption. Nobody is ever prosecuted as it ‘looks bad’ to the public. You could triple the funding and most would leave via the back door. I can tell you for a fact that they do NOT like a whistle blower and although I saved them losing another couple hundred of grand, I was never forgiven and hounded out of my job.

I don’t think so. People will start to slowly understand what a lying bunch of fuckwits make up the government. Boris played the NHS card every time he could, flag waving, praising them, clapping them.
He is a complete idiot, putting this group of people on a pedestal, making their heads big eventually needs some payback. Its a highly unionised environment, highly controlled, so ripples of discontent from senior management who are hated by the staff will be seen as support and will provoke more agitation lower down and be seen as support for them by the seniors. Divide and rule. Seniors will get a payoff to slap them all down soon, just wait and see.
The cabinet have no people management skills and rely on wonks, polls and feed back groups to tell them what ‘the people’ are thinking, yet these people are all deficient in these skills too. A feedback circle of the same opinions leads always to the same answer. Do what is the exact opposite of what is actually required. Boris has pulled up the bridge on any kind of opinions outside of the inner circle and SAGE, so he is well and truly fucked. He is in a hole and the only thing he knows is to keep digging.

Del Bigtree of The Highwire, who lives in Texas where all Covid measures have been dropped, reports that only 7.5% of the population has had 2 doses of the experimental gene therapy but since January “cases” are down 75%, hospitalizations are down 65%, and deaths are down 70%. IT’S NOT THE VACCINE. It’s the typical decline of hospitalizations and deaths at the end of every cold and flu season. Texas hasn’t vaccinated enough people to account for such huge drops since January. I would guess the same holds true for the UK insofar as seasonal patterns, though you have vaccinated a far higher percentage of the population. Here in Canada we’re seeing similar downward trends and we have vaccinated maybe 5%.

Of course the MSM will ignore seasonal trends and chalk up the disappearance of Covid to the vaccine. Just as they have ignored the charts showing identical curves between places that locked down and mandated masks and places that didn’t.

This why the UK does not lift lockdowns until the percentage of vaccinations isn’t very high. So it can claim it is the lockdowns that keep deaths and infections down.

Otherwise, if lockdown is lifted and people see the virus is gone away, they won’t bother getting vaccinated.

Yes, some policing has been over the top but it’s been similar everywhere. The protests every Saturday in Toronto have seen police become increasingly aggressive.

The scary thing I heard about yesterday is the pastor in Alberta who refused to shut down his church and ignored anti-social distancing and masking during his services. He was arrested and jailed in February and was denied bail yesterday. Meanwhile we have let actual criminals out of jail due to Covid and this pastor will likely be sitting in a maximum security prison until his case is heard in May. Perhaps CCP level is being kind and it’s closer to North Korea. I’m not a religious person but I give a ton of credit to members of religious communities who have done far more than most to fight back against this tyranny.

449436 Bungle, replying to Bungle, 41, #154 of 1267 🔗

Your expert doctor has reproduced the Nightingale chart of deaths amongst his 14 pages of ‘Covid charts’. Covid charts are meaningless as there is no test for Covid. 13 wasted pages doctor/LS editor. As for the all deaths from CEBM, I have shown this several times btl and you can clearly see the pandemic ended at the end of May. However, ‘your doctor’ says “what puzzles me about this data is the lower number of overall deaths in the recent winter compared to last spring.” Doctor, listen please, last spring/earlysummer (March, April, May) there was a pandemic. This winter (November, December, January) there was no pandemic and deaths should have been normal. The reason they were high was that they co-incided with a massive increase in care home deaths resulting from ‘vaccine’ rollout. Editors,may I recommend you choose proper analysts rather than doctors employed by the NHS, an arm of the British government, bent on filling our citizens arms with poison.

449462 ▶▶ sophie123, replying to Bungle, 24, #155 of 1267 🔗

I’ve been looking at that nightingale plot on CEBM and pondering.
it’s a very odd shaped peak, we’ve had this winter. Every other winter (and indeed last spring) there has been a spike then a drop. This winter there has been a gently sloped hump. A flattened curve, so to speak.

Given that winter spikes are due to either cold (which it has also been this winter, so nothing weird there) or viruses then there’s something odd about this winter’s virus. I’m inclined to say you’re right Bungle and it’s the slow roll out of the vaccine (vs that of viral spread) that has prolonged the deaths. Plus you’ve probably got extra deaths in there from denial of medical treatment over the course of 2020. Misclassified no doubt thanks to nosocomial COVID.

You can’t say it’s lockdown that has flattened the curve, as it didn’t flatten it in Spring last year. And we all know it is bullshit.

449532 ▶▶▶ Bungle, replying to sophie123, 11, #156 of 1267 🔗

Hi Sophie. Glad you know of CEBM. Indeed, every year there is an initial spike because these are dates of registration not occurrence. If you find ONS data for deaths in care homes, you will see the correlation with ‘vaccine’ roll out. Now which ‘O’ level student is going to tell me ‘correlation does not mean causation’? No, but what it does is it provides a hypothesis, a potential explanation, and before you jump to any conclusion, you need to search for other potential explanations. I cannot see many others, can you?

449822 ▶▶ Spikedee1, replying to Bungle, 2, #157 of 1267 🔗

Yes and they keep looking at the data in isolation and not adding any context. And no mention of the deaths being misdiagnosed as cv. The only figure of interest is all cause mortality year on year and this winter has been normal when compared to other years. And considering we have been without a fully functioning nhs its a miracle. I really only browse atl now. See if there is anything interesting in conservative women. Other than that its all btl.

A trip down memory Lane…Summer of 2020 (my version of Summer of ‘69)

I got my first real face-mask
Bought it when I went to town
Wore it ‘til my face went blue
Was the summer of the first lockdown.

Me and some guys from school
Had a band and we played on Zoom.
Jimmy quit, ‘cause he couldn’t hear us
He should’ve tried from another room.

Oh, when I look back now
That lockdown seemed to last forever
And if I had the choice
Yeah, I’d never wanna be there
Those were the worst days of my life

Ain’t no use in complainin’
When there are no jobs to do
Spent my evenings down at the drive-through
That is all there was to do, yeah.

Standin’ on your mama’s porch
You said I wasn’t in your bubble
If you could have held my hand
I wouldn’t have caused so much trouble
Those were the worst days of my life

Oh, yeah.
Back in the summer of the first lockdown, oh.

Man we were killin’ time
We were young and restless
We needed to unwind
So we went on a protest march, oh yeah!

And now the times are changin’
Look at everything that’s going on
Sometimes when I look at all the chaos
I wonder when it all went wrong

…it went wrong right back in the first lockdown when they clapped for the NHS, shared funny lockdown dance videos and thought this was all so exciting.

It’s not so exciting now, but most people are still just as hypnotised. What about these young people, what’s the summer of 2021 going to look like, will they riot this year? I don’t have much hope that June will bring a great lifting of lockdown. Will the young finally snap or are they too brainwashed?

‘Education is lighting a fire, not filling a bucket.’
For too long schools have just filled children full of woke information and not taught them how to think for themselves. Children need inspiring, but many are expiring, so bored are they of their education. We chose to home educate ours. Our children, like seedlings have been nurtured in the greenhouse of our home until they have been strong enough to go out on the windy hill of the education system. We are seeing them standing strong as they go out in their teenage years and defend their faith and do not follow the crowd. My oldest 3 children, who are out there in the education system, eschew masks and tests, not because I make them, but because they see the insanity. They have not been blinded like the brainwashed masses to follow the sheep, they follow the Shepherd instead.

When will we ever learn, when will we ever learn?
This week on Farming Today they reported on some research at the Quadram Institute on the microbial Biomone needed by chickens this involved collecting Chicken poo processing it and spraying the resulting material on young chickens to give them the healthy immunising exposure to bacteria/viruses that they were otherwise not getting due to being raised in sterile conditions.

If you watch any commercial TV there seem to be endless adverts for disinfectants and other gunk that kills 99% of germs and viruses including coronavirus. There seems to to be a strand of human thinking that yearns for a sterile world where we are in total control and no bugs or viruses are allowed. But like the chickens we need need a bit of muck, it’s how life works.
But it does seem to me that the authoritarian hysterical approach to Covid elimination is coming from the same brand of thinking that wants disinfectants that make your home sterile. It seems that authoritarian totalitarian thinking is a strong strand in human thinking and comes through very quickly and easily.

As for me, I’m in ‘muck is healthy’ group and feel we need to learn to live in harmony with the natural world, not fight it but but that style of thinking does not seem to be at home in the world any more.

I let my toddlers eat and play in the dirt, not once since birth have they been molly coddled and everything sanitised to within an inch of its life. My Bil however is over protective and keeps everything clean and sanitised over his child.

It’s best to play and eat dirt as they build up their immune systems.

That`s what my gran did with me, I was free to crawl around the garden and munch on anything that took my fancy, apparently I was partial to yellow flowers 🙂 She left me in my pram out in all weathers, rain and snow included.

Sixty something years later and I haven’t had a serious illness in my life thanks to a robust immune system built up as a toddler.

Thanks gran.

I’m currently experimenting with developing a different sourdough starter (very on trend, sorry). Earlier this evening was reading that a common reason for failure is if all the equipment involved is simply too sterile: nothing for the yeasts and lactobacilli to latch onto. Chimes perfectly with your comment! (NB equipment so far is an old yogurt pot, occasionally stirred with a plastic spatula. So no problems.)

Clearly the vaccine is the reason we are recovering from COVID in the UK quicker than our neighbours such as France that don’t have it – we’ve been told so many times by the government and ‘scientists’ that it must be true.

The only problem is that the facts don’t support it – see the graph below comparing weekly excess deaths in France to England & Wales.

Well, obviously the facts are wrong – the government can’t be that dishonest or incompetent !

I saw a vid the other day on panda talking to a pandemic modeller, he claimed there was evidence for waves, “it can be seen in the data” , but what isn’t taken into account are 2 very important things. First there is no precedent for a global lockdown, if its never been done before we have no idea how a virus would adapt to that behaviour, we could be exacerbating the problem causing waves of infection & mutation!

Second we compare Covid-19 to flu & colds etc, but no other virus or disease has ever been so intensely studied & monitored, so we are bound to learn more on the ecology of infectious disease, it may require a change in what we thought we know, or it was maybe corrupting what we already knew with inappropriate methods 😉

One thing is certain government & MSM created an environment of fear & hysteria that has almost certainly corrupted THE science, in itself may have affected the virus behaviour. Was the narrative of fear by design or mistake? Maybe we’ve been studying the wrong thing, we should have been studying the actors “controlling” the virus.

“Fear is the mind-killer”. From that, all else follows. Imagine the anxiety caused, you’ve been terrified into fearing this deadly virus, and now you have tested positive for it, you’re convinced you’re going to die, have an anxiety attack, and then get thrown on to a ventilator, as it’s the only approved treatment. I wonder how many times this scenario has been repeated?

If you look at the zoe map of symptomatic positives, it is surprising how areas with higher/lower numbers seem to line up horizontally. There’s a bit of that going on in North Somerset at the moment. Of course you might expect neighbouring areas to have similar levels if you believe in human to human transmission, but it is the way this happens horizontally that surprises me. And geographic features such as mountains seem to cause divides also from time to time.

I know we see patterns where patterns aren’t there, so maybe I’m being a bit pareidoliac.

Some sort of rigorous analysis of the zoe maps over time might be interesting to see if this is real or imagined.

My favourite quote of the day from this article:
https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2021/03/05/covid-vaccine-side-effects-three-times-common-have-had-virus/
Ellie Barnes, professor of hepatology and immunology at the University of Oxford and one of the Oxford vaccine team, said: “There’s emerging data to show that when you’ve had a Covid infection your T-cells become activated, and then over the weeks after that they become memory T-cells and kind of calm down.
“But they are then able to respond very rapidly to subsequent vaccination. So if you’ve been infected before and then get your first dose of the vaccine, you have a really excellent response to that single dose compared to someone that wasn’t infected before.”
Once more I am reminded of the estimable Dr. Nick Riviera:
‘Inflammable’ means flammable? What a country!

It has been argued that the government behaves like an abusive partner. One tactic used by abusers is to give some freedom and take it away as a form of torture. In the summer we were allowed to see people outside our household under restrictions and businesses were allowed to open again but again under restrictions. The country went into full lockdown twice again. Do you think the government plan all along was to take away our freedoms, give some back and take them away again as a form of torture.

Something for the electorate to consider, every time they vote (May is almost upon us….):

‘…why is it, then, that the federal government seems never to consider the option of replacing government assistance programs with direct payments? In the Covid crisis, and in the broader war against poverty, this would have solved a vexing problem as efficiently as possible.

And therein lies the rub. Politicians aren’t all that concerned with solving problems efficiently. They seem always to prefer expanding the power they wield, and the government programs they create expand their ability to micromanage our lives.

Politicians make grandiose claims about their various and sundry programs because those claims resonate with the people who receive government largesse. Not surprisingly, those claims resonate even more with the entrenched, ever-growing federal bureaucracy.

But in the end, people receive pennies on the dollar compared to what they could have received had we decided just to write a check.

In the end, our government has become a tool that politicians use to turn national problems into political power, so it should come as no surprise that they are not interested in solving problems at all.’

Interesting. RICHARD A. ROTHSCHILD is the owner? Dating back to 2015….

“including whether an individual is suffering from a bacterial and/or viral infection (e.g., COVID-19, etc.) or other respiratory conditions or symptoms. The present invention could be used in conjunction with a telemedicine or “digital health” system to provide a reliable and convenient method for remote collection and observation of a patient’s vital signs.”

The Rothchilds have a pyramid in the back garden, on a ley-line….near one of the oldest churches in the UK, with one of the oldest yew trees in the UK in it’s garden and the church is linked to the road by a very wierd stone path that snakes across the fields. 100 meters away is an ancient spring and pool where water bubbles up from underground……

Not more than a few miles away is Avebury and SIlbury hill, masonic monuments on hills and chalk horses.

449534 ▶▶ FerdIII, replying to Sarigan (Day 348 of lockdown), 6, #302 of 1267 🔗

Questions about health etc.are ridiculous imo. A census is simply: who are you, where do you live, what skin color coats your bones, and what religion may you be and do you work, or suck on the public teat like NHS workers or gov’t-politicians etc. Should be more straightforward.

I completed the census. A couple of PC questions which are voluntary, but why the need for a census because all the information required is already held by various government departments at their computer systems as such but they do not/choose to talk to one another? Another waste of public money and job creation scheme.

Quite. I kept an eye open too, 2-6.

Wrote a letter with a couple of queries about the questions, never heard back. A bloke did knock on the door a couple of times. But he wasn’t that enthusiastic, and had little interest in discussion.

Last time (I checked the legislation; don’t know if it has been upgraded or not) it was not an offence not to fill it in, only ‘to refuse to fill it in’. So “I’ll be doing it next Sunday” appears to be a complete get-out.

For those that do intend to complete it, Freedom is the religion of choice this year. (The Light/KBF/Freedom Network).

The only way to identify the voluntary questions is to click “Next” without providing an answer.
If it prevents you from moving on, answers are mandatory.
If it lets you continue, they’re voluntary.

The blurb about voluntary questions being obvious is, at best, very misleading.

ATL – the Plandemic proceeds apace. Ahead of schedule. The Corona fascists will have rolling LDs starting this Fall. The plans for digital surveillance proceed at frantic paces. RNA and now DNA Drug Experiments now being funded by your tax money. For what? A flu with a death rate of 0.3%, under the age of 60, statistically you have more chance of dying from choking or a car accident. Why the Drugs? They kill/injure, they don’t stop transmission.

The article concludes that an absence of leadership in the UK allowed human rights law and the ethics and principles of evidence-based public health to be disregarded, precipitating economic and social devastation and excess mortality. If a future such occurrence is to be avoided, new legislation and formal censure of those responsible – whether from politics, media, medicine, science or the judiciary – will be necessary

It seems to me that all data is a bit skewed. Right from the beginning we have noticed that families in our working class area have ignored lockdown. There have been discreet gatherings all round us. Indeed we found that our elderly friends whose children were living abroad felt they had nothing but their sanity to lose by staying home. We created a group of ten people. All elderly. We met in each others homes sometimes a few and sometimes all of us.

last Christmas we had the day and Boxing day together. Discreetly enjoying ourselves. Of course it is upsetting us that we cannot see our families. But we noticed a divide. Those who are more working class seemed to be more sensible and put their families first. Those more middle class and specially of the public sector put themselves first. This is a generalisation we noticed in our community. A snapshot of society if you like.

i might add, none of our friends have ever been polled or asked to complete a survey. Again a snapshot. So where are these polls carried out and who determines how the data is facilitated?

I believe the university educated middle classes have been brainwashed through education and now many are incapable of independent thought.

I found my home educating friends were the first to awake. We had all already begun to question the wisdom of the state prior to our decision to home educate. Going against the grain was also normal for us. These friend were also all Bible believing Christians and thus more adjusted to being mocked and marginalised.

I have been watching the development of the Novavax vaccine;
https://pharmaphorum.com/news/novavax-in-talks-with-fda-over-quick-approval-for-covid-19-shot/
I am no fan of vaccines unless they are good and address a real risk but would I be correct in saying Novavax whilst pretty high-tech is not an RNA vaccine?
It has advanced through quite a lot of testing stages in the USA, UK and other countries. I do wonder if and when it gets released and if it picks up a reputation for being less scary, the whole vaccine scene could change?

I suspect the Novavax vaccine is just a means to quell unrest over the principle of covid19 vaccination and to ultimately encourage everyone to be vaccinated. If enough people forget their original objections, or cave in a la Hitchens, the PTB will have achieved what they set out to do. They are depending on those in the resistance movement regarding Novavax as a lesser evil so “we might as well take it”. We really must fight this at all costs.

Fighting back is brave, and ‘right’, and all that, but unlikely to net either short term freedom or longer term survival for you personally – if you stay, you are choosing martyrdom for the cause [that’s if they don’t succeed in breaking you]

You might want to brush up on South America a little, it’s a long way from any sort of Covid paradise.

Argentina is a basket case as always, lock-down didn’t control the virus and they don’t know what to do next.

Chile and Paraguay have had riots over the restrictions, which still continue.

Peru has one of the most rigid lock-down regimes in the world and cases keep mounting up.

Brazil has just had the worst week of the pandemic (so the pols and press say) and went into full red zone lock-down today.

The fact that people don’t go along with the rules is down to necessity, there is no furlough, no UBI, here. People are out and about to put food on the table.

Re Drugs: Remember kids, just follow the science (or the money, or the data fraud, or the political power….). No racism here. DTP ‘vaccination’. Killing Black children. Maybe this is why UK BAME are not interested in the drugs.

“But Bill Gates and his surrogates, GAVI and WHO, made DTP a priority for African babies .

The Danish government and Novo Nordisk Foundation commissioned this study by a team of the world’s leading experts on African vaccination.

The two most prominent names, Drs. Soren Mogensen and Peter Aaby, are both vocal vaccine supporters.

They were shocked when they examined years of data from a so called “natural experiment” in Guinea Bissau where 50% of children die before age five . In that west African nation, half the children were vaccinated with the DTP vaccine at three months and the other half at six months.

Dr. Mogenson and his team found that girls vaccinated with the DTP vaccine died at 10 times the rate of unvaccinated kids. While the vaccinated children were protected from Diphtheria, Tetanus and Pertussis, they were far more susceptible to other deadly diseases than unvaccinated peers. The vaccine apparently compromised their immune systems. Thanks to Gates, DTP is the world’s most popular vaccine. .”

449684 Margaret, replying to Margaret, 10, #432 of 1267 🔗

Some of you may remember that last November we had a phone call with our MP, who admitted that he knew very little about Covid. He asked us to put together a letter which he would send to the PM, Gove and Hancock. We spent hours putting together seven pages of our concerns. Four months have past and yesterday a response finally arrived.
Here are a few extracts: The headings and words in italics are mine.

On blaming the science.
”From the beginning… our policies have been guided by the advice of SAGE which is led by the Chief Scientific advisor and the CMO and is kept under constant review.
Public safety is our priority and we have a team of public health experts and scientist working around the clock to make sure the NHS, the care sector and the country are fully prepared”. Fully prepared? They closed the Nightingales as they were not needed.

Removal from the HCID list
”Inclusion in the high consequence infectious diseases list typically requires a disease to meet a high threshold in its case fatality rate. We now know that Covid-19 does not meet this threshold but, because it spreads very easily, it is still a very dangerous disease overall, as evidenced by the tens of thousands of people who have died from it so far in the U.K.”. The vast majority with underlying illnesses

Inclusion on the list also means that a disease should be treated at specialist HCID treatment centres. If Covid-19 had remained on the list, the number of people suffering from it would have overwhelmed these centres meaning that there would be no capacity left to treat people with other diseases”. Isn’t this exactly what happened to cancer sufferers or those with heart disease?

”As scientific studies have shown, Covid-19 is an incredibly dangerous virus, especially to the elderly and at risk groups”.

Excess deaths
”It is true that people who have tested positive for Covid-19, could, in a few cases, have died from something else, however this does not mean that the threat posed by Covid-19 has been exaggerated…..since March 2020 there have tragically been tens of thousands more deaths than we would expect on average”. Only if you look at the last five years instead of the last twenty.

PCT tests
”I understand the concerns regarding PCR testing. We know that inaccurate information online about the RT-PCR test and its use is prevalent”. The writer then says that a quote from Cary Mullis appears not to be a direct quote, has lost its context and does not mean that “Covid-testing is fraudulent”. I sent my MP the video on which Cary Mullis talks about this”

”We are also aware that when the PCR test detects viral material it does not indicate that the virus is fully intact and infectious. The isolation of infectious virus from positive individuals requires virus culture process, which can only be conducted in laboratories with specialist containment facilities and are time-consuming and complex”

”PHE has stated that real time PCR tests are the gold standard methods for identifying individuals with an active viral infection”. Haven’t there been several articles published, including in the Lancet saying PCR should not be used as the gold standard?

”A typical PCR assay will have a maximum of 40 thermal cycles……There are many different assays in use across the U.K. Ct values cannot be directly compared between assays of different types…..” So no standardisation then?

”Additional guidance has been provided to laboratories to reduce the false positive rate even further”. Yes, don’t use a PCR test in isolation to diagnose illness”

Face coverings
“Our guidance on face coverings follows advice from SAGE. There is evidence to suggest that when used correctly, face coverings may reduce the likelihood of someone with the infection passing it on to others, particularly if they are asymptomatic….they could be partially effective in enclosed spaces…”. Remember the video of Hancock, Whitty, Harris etc saying the opposite?

Signed by Lord Bethell.

Thanks for that. It truly pins down the absolute lack of knowledge and ability that has been used to back up the con on the populace.

You have pointed up a few obvious errors – but, in actuality, the whole letter is an assertion of a tissue of nonsense and fabrication.

Seeing it as an incoherent whole is truly frightening.

449722 ▶▶ Sam Vimes, replying to Margaret, 4, #434 of 1267 🔗

He describes what would be a gold standard process – viral culture from a known infected individual – and then says PCR is the gold standard! I’m not a virologist, but I can read!

449723 ▶▶ BeBopRockSteady, replying to Margaret, 5, #435 of 1267 🔗

Awful. His response on PCR is particularly woeful. The dismissal of Mullis is taken straight from a fact checker article. I know this because I was sent it when arguing with a friend last summer regarding the tests. The Lancet article you reference said precisely that the PCR “can not be considered the Gold Standard”. Following the science indeed. And if CTs are not a good measurement why in the Dec 14th SAGE minutes do they talk about values over 25CT being difficult for determining infectiousness.

What you are dealing with is someone who is done arguing. They want you to go away and believe you are a conspiracy theorist. They cannot be saved. They are complicit in this fraud, whether through ignorance or not, and should be treated as such.

The part about the fact Covid was assessed and taken off the High Consequence list, but he still wants to talk about it as a plague, is total cognitive dissonance.

My response would be “Read the Lancet article. You are wrong. Update your position on PCR and think what that means for the whole view of Covid-19 in 2020”

449766 ▶▶▶ Margaret, replying to BeBopRockSteady, 4, #436 of 1267 🔗

State bureaucracies, in so far as they have a mind, want to control the population as much as possible.

Although most people don’t particularly want to be controlled, an atmosphere has been created in which everyone believes that every else wants to be controlled and must go along with what the majority supposedly wants.

This presents a once in a lifetime opportunity for the state bureaucracy to expand its control of the population and it’s not going to waste it.

I’m just printing out some stuff for a children’s birthday zoom party (I never thought I would write that) and stumbled across an email I wrote to my MP

“Boris made clear yesterday that he can’t guarantee there won’t be another lockdown. That is as good a guarantee that we will have another one as we can get. The seasonal cycle will tick up in Autumn/Winter and we will have lockdown 4.0.

I don’t think we can carry on like this – I think Boris needs to go – the sooner that is done the better.  We need someone who is capable of seeing the bigger picture.

In my work in International Development, I read widely and some of that I’ve shared with you. I suspect 30 million child deaths (under 5 year olds) are ‘baked in’ – possibly 3 million per year over 10 years – possibly a lot more. To say nothing of the QALYs lost. International Development has gone back 30 years (things were a lot worse 30 years ago) and this is the first year the Human Development Index has gone backwards.

This is a catastrophe of our own making – on a par with the Chinese Four Pests Campaign and Great Famine where 45 million people died because the government was ‘trying to solve a problem’ and created a bigger one.

I don’t now how we get out of this insanity. I feel dreadful guilt that I can’t do more. But we have to remember total deaths of covid-19 is right in the middle of both HK Flu and Asian flu (1-4 million). It’s nothing special but our response to it is.”

I’m optimistic that Bozo will soon be gone. Many Tory MPs will want things opened up soon and will be hearing this from their ‘vaccinated’ elderly constituents, who are apparently out there ‘breaking the rules’ en masse. It really does look like Bozo is living in a different world and I suspect he will be pushed out by the 1922 Committee. The next PM will need to focus on economic and social recovery and any kind of restrictions will work against that, so I’m hoping we will see the last of them soon.

Seasons refer to daylight, at least to bird, flower & creature observers. I’m not sure that flora & fauna use those terms themselves. Humans delude themselves and call August a summer month and when they travel, they head south unlike every other creature (in the northern hemisphere) which head north.

The main issues with seasonality tend to be (i) higher humidity in summer (ii) higher levels of UV light leading to increased VitD3 production as well as direct UV light sterilisation. (iii) breathing through the nose on extremely hot days actually kills bacteria and viruses by direct hyperthermia.

It would be interesting to take all the nursing homes vaccinated in a single week and plot all their deaths (actual date of) per 1000 from ten weeks before to ten weeks after vaccination week.

And if this were repeated for each group of vaccination weeks we would have good picture showing if all cause deaths increased in all nursing homes with or without vaccination or if the deaths increase after week of vaccination in nursing homes.

is it possible to group over 80’s in nursing homes into groups of week vaccinated rather than all care home deaths clumped as one – that would show if there is an undeniable correlation/link if all the ”week vaccinated” charts were the same shape but offset by week

The site update writers ignore anything relating to the vaccine. Last month I actually broke a story about 20+ deaths post-vaccine in a care home (that had previously had 0 deaths), thinking that it would be a huge piece of news for the main updates. Nothing said.

They will literally not talk about anything vaccine related unless it’s part of the sentence “and the vaccine will help us get out of lockdown.”

The people running the WHO didn’t change after October 2019.
Tedros, a revolutionary Marxist from Ethiopia, the ex-health minister of that country who denied there’d been a cholera outbreak and said it was just people with “watery diarrhoea,” and who continued to deny there was cholera in his country until it spread to neighbouring countries, was in charge of the WHO.
He got that position with the support of the Chinese Communist Party. He’s accepted their propaganda at face value, i.e. CV19 came from a wet market that just so happens to be close to a virology lab, it wasn’t spread from person to person, the lockdown of Wuhan worked so other countries should do the same.

The best outcome would have been a mass realisation that a huge mistake has been made. That now seems unlikely, especially now that there are “vaccines” and the likely arrival of some kind of herd immunity as cover. It may have been better in the long term for us to have permanent draconian lockdown which may eventually have pushed people into rebellion. That may still happen of course, or there may be a permanent draconian lockdown and no rebellion.

I’ve not commented for a while, so thought I’d do a bit of a brain dump.

The article about older people suddenly feeling more confident after being jabbed reflects my recent experiences. My parents now jabbed are slowly returning back to normal. They even let me go round their house on my daughter’s first birthday.

The news was on when we arrived, but was quickly switched off and there was little talk about covid, seemed pretty normal.

One of my drinking mates works in a DIY store and now says there are suddenly loads more older people in store (which is annoying for him – it is basically a ‘trade’ DIY store, now loads of domestic customers who are not builders are interrupting him all day asking about light fittings etc).

On a totally unrelated topic, I was watching “Inside Chernobyl with Ben Fogle” on the Yesterday channel the other night. He was going around highly radioactive buildings and I noticed most of the time, the only PPE he was wearing was a mask (some of the time)

I suppose as you could actually see the highly radioactive dust in the air, it would be a good idea to try not to breathe it in, so the mask might help a bit, but if I were there, I’d probably want to be wearing something slightly more protective…

Maybe when the nukes start going off, we can just cover our houses in masks to protect them.

Down to the market today. I thought outdoor masking had peaked at around 10-15% but today there seemed to be more middle aged people muzzled – around 25-30%.

Outdoor masking here has been at a depressing level for months. And today didn’t look any different.

I go to the market every Saturday and, as you find, the majority of stallholders are unmasked, and still very much alive.
Given the fact that they speak to hundreds of people every day, I drop little sceptical tidbits into the conversation, and judging by their reactions some of that information will get passed on to other customers.

If the testing is being carried out by officially trained staff, the swab is supposed to be inserted as high as can be until resistance is felt (ie at the membrane covering the C. plate).

https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-nCoV/lab/guidelines-clinical-specimens.html#respiratory

I have never been able to find out how it is that an officially conducted test has to be so invasive (and potentially harmful) yet a test carried out on themselves or on their children by a member of the public, which doesn’t require such an invasive procedure, is regarded as equally meaningful.

From talking with friends, family, neighbours and looking around at folks on the streets this is how I see the vaccinations will go:

Most at risk groups will have high up take;
younger folks will have it to a) have an easy life and go abroad on holidays or go to work, gyms, socialise b) because they have come to believe they are protecting their family.

And in this way I reckon there will be say 90% uptake. That there may be issues with mass population vaccination, that some people will have adverse reactions and a few die from a medication they don’t really need, that there are discriminations on unvaccinated will not bother all these folks who want an easy life or think we deserve it.

I don’t know where that leaves the 10% who are thinking about things, have concerns and will not be forced into a medication we don’t need. Perhaps if there is community immunity there won’t be too many restrictions on us.

As for the rest of this year I really do not see restrictions ending and I think mass testing will continue. And my feeling is that there will be great fear from the authorities around next winter. Until then I don’t see how the vaccinated population can put their vaccines to the test as infections will, even if there is an uptick as schools go back, die down by May. The strategy also seems to be to eliminate covid so how can vaccines be tested anyway.

I think we will have to learn to live our lives under the radar and with the support of others who feel the same. Already I know there are a few of my friends who will not see me because I am unvaccinated. I don’t want to be with these people and I won’t continue the friendship. We must continue to protest and raise our concerns but I think the lobby of the fearful is stronger and we don’t have a strong leader.

That strikes me as a sound analysis, Wendy. I can’t clearly envision restrictions ending either. The incursion into every aspect of life, including our private lives, is so complete that it is difficult to see how they will pull back from it (even if they wanted to). I increasingly believe that the vaccine zealots are not really troubled by fellow citizens declining the jab as much as they are by any sign of non-conformity. It is other people that are seen as a threat, not a virus or any health effects that it may have. So I agree that we non-conformists will need to try to live under the radar for as long as others remain content not to live life at all.

Hold on, you’re making an assumption about the people having the vaccination that is not necessarily true.

I’m not so sure it is much too high, JohnB, in the medium-term (and in the adult population).

I am in no doubt that every possible lever will be pulled to make individuals believe that they cannot participate in life without it and that will break most people – combined with social pressure. I think 90% is unrealistic this year but I think the establishment is quite prepared for a war of attrition.

It’s clear that the uptake, even among older people, is lower than what the authorities expected, hence the talk of needing to get rid of excess ‘vaccines’ that people did not show up for, etc. The scare tactics are just that – attempts to frighten people, via psy-ops, into thinking that they will never travel again or enter a pub. It’s nonsense. The tide is turning, particularly in some US states, and things will move more quickly as we go into spring in the Northern Hemisphere and people ignore the restrictions in very large numbers. Many parents will fight against any attempt to inject their children and I think this will be a major factor in pushing back.

The social and economic disaster will take centre stage in the coming months and I suspect that the authorities will shift gears, trying to get people out and about and spending money this summer. Restrictions would work against this effort. If people are frightened, they can get the magic ‘vaccine’ to protect themselves (if they believe that), and I think the messaging will shift away from ‘protecting others’ to ‘protect yourself’ to facilitate this. Let’s try to be more optimistic here. The hysteria is fading and things are going to change.

The fact that you’re not vaccinated is irrelevant and their logic is flawed to say the least.
There’s no presumption of efficacy or otherwise of any vaccine.

From their viewpoint:
You’re not vaccinated
You can potentially be infected and infectious
They’ve been vaccinated and should be immune
Therefore you cannot infect them and hence there’s no reason for them not to see you.
From your point of view:
They’ve been vaccinated
They can still be infected/infectious
You are not vaccinated and potentially vulnerable
Therefore you have the reason not to see them.

Well John, we are thinking and not swallowing fear but others have been taken in by the fear. I ask myself why and it must be something to do with what they need for themselves – perhaps a desire for some external agency to protect them or think for them.

I will keep my head down and arm away from a medication I don’t feel I need and stay around people who feel and think the same as me, like here, but I do now think it will be next year before things begin to ease up.

I seriously doubt their figures. Partly cos they aren’t that competant, partly because, as they have lied to us about everything else, why not lie about vaccine uptake to make people think everyone else is getting them. Also there have already been quite a few people under 50 vaccinated due to care home and health workers. I have heard of a few 40 somethings (non care workers) who have already been offered it. I think they have hit something of a brick wall, hence rolling out the Queen and celebs to promote the vax.

Therefore I’m trying to be cautiously optimistic and think maybe around 25% will refuse to be jabbed.

Life Insurance is generally underwritten based on your circumstances at the time of taking out a policy. Whatever happens in the future, provided you didn’t lie in your original application, shouldn’t affect your ability to make a claim.

It’s because they can’t model the risk so rightly so cannot offer compensation. It could be open ended. Insurance companies still have to make a profit otherwise no-one ever will get a payout.

A significant drop in recent weeks in deaths with or from covid in England and Wales in the over 80s.

And a slight drop in relative terms in deaths with or from covid in the last few weeks, but it isn’t that much of a drop.

449898 ▶▶▶ Freecumbria, replying to Freecumbria, 3, #583 of 1267 🔗

And all cause mortality in the over 85s (have to use different age categories because of historical data issues) has dropped in relative terms in the past few weeks. Need to look carefully at the very right of the graph to see that.

But that’s what happens around every February as we head out of Winter (see early 2015 and 2018).

So looks like vaccination may have had no effect at all on all cause mortality in the over 80s/over85s (once immediate post vaccination deaths have disappeared out of the figures in these groups) but have removed the covid label from some of these deaths.

Preventing your death being labelled as covid is meaningless of course if you still die at the same time without the label.

Claims of vaccination success seem to be based around

a) ignoring the deaths that seem to be caused by the vaccine in the most vulnerable groups in the few weeks after vaccination
b) exaggerating how effective vaccines are at removing the label and
c) ignoring that removing the label is meaningless without preventing the death also.

So when PHE claim that “since January, protection against symptomatic COVID, 4 weeks after the first dose, ranged between 57 and 61% for one dose of Pfizer and between 60 and 73% for the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine claim” they

a) ignore the deaths in the weeks after vaccination
b) exaggerate the 57%, 61% etc figures (I’ve explained in an earlier post how they seem to be doing that) and
c) ignore that removing the label is meaningless if the death isn’t prevented

I’ll make the point I have made previously – to arrive at a “profit” you need to know your cost and I would argue that Big Pharma can allocate costs to the “vaccine” cost centre that absent COVID, would have been shared out across all other product lines. This has the effect of showing no profit on the “vaccine” line when looked at in isolation, but when looked at a whole company level, profits are being made.

I’m writing this with tears streaming down my face.

Yesterday I sent my mum the video interview of Reiner Fuellmich with that American guy (sorry can’t think of his name). Because I thought it the most rational, reasoned, sensible explanation as to what is going on. I sent it because, although it doesn’t mention the snake oil, it would open her mind to the possibility that things are not what she believes as a sheep. I planned on using it as a platform to ask her and my dad not to have the second jab.

What a fucking idiot I am.

The conversation went like this.
Me: Did you watch the video.?
Her: Yes
Me: What are your thoughts.
Her: It’s an interesting theory.
Me: Mum, it’s not a theory, he’s a lawyer.
Her: Exactly, what qualifications does he have to say it’s just seasonal flu.
Me (now in real disbelief): He’s a lawyer, he didn’t just say it, he has had hours of interviews, statement from scientists and experts.
Her: How do you know,
Me: Because there are over 8000 minutes of videos and interviews on his website, I spent 6 and a half hours watching his live stream yesterday of him and his colleagues interviewing scientists and doctors
Her (with venom): Well you need to get out more

At this point I lost it. I swore at her, saying I was trying to save her f*!king life, that she needs to see what’s happening, that I didn’t want her to have the second vaccine because it was going to f*!king kill her.

Then I hung up. I’ve blocked them both on my phone. That’s it for me. I’ve tried and tried. They deserve everything they get (and she has a auto immune disease).

But it doesn’t stop it hurting. Why are we so alone? Why do so many not see what we see? I’ve managed to wake my partner up to this, mostly because of Reiner Fuellmichs interviews but mention it to anyone else and the vitriol and anger and hatred slammed back at you…..

These people have known me for many many years. I am not stupid, I am not someone who has spouted conspiracy theories in the past, I was not anti-vax. I used to be responsible for the lives of hundreds of people in my planes every day.

It’s the dismissive way they just automatically assume that we have nothing valid to say. The lack of trust is very hurtful. I’ve now resolved never to discuss the subject with my dad – it makes for very superficial short discussions about the weather, but that seems better than us both getting upset. As you say, you’ve done everything you can. I sent my dad a complete printout of the latest Swiss Research Policy updates – pointless. A lot of people have been brainwashed by the government messages and the mainstream media. Perhaps (hopefully) one day they will realise what’s really going on. But until then, we just have to let go and focus on what we can do, rather than try and persuade others, particularly family and friends, of what the true story is. Some people, possibly most, just aren’t ready to face the possibility that our government is lying to us.

Architects for Social Housing have now deliberately included a section in their reports which is comments from readers to help others know they’re not alone in these feelings of isolation.
They said: I have included an appendix of readers’ comments on the articles in this latest collection. I do this partly to try to convince any publisher with the courage to print them that there is a large audience for analysis of what is being done under the cloak of the coronavirus crisis. But, in addition, these comments show that many readers have been isolated by their convictions, even from their family and closest friends; and I hope this appendix will help show to each other just how many of us do not believe the blatant and crude lies we are being told, and are committed to resisting the prison that is being built around, between and within us. It is my conviction — and also my hope — that individual acts of civil disobedience to the regulations, programmes and technologies of the UK biosecurity state, repeated without fear by tens of millions of citizens across the UK, will collectively win the civil war we’re beginning to realise has been declared against us.

Unblock your phone. Talk to them but never talk about lockdowns, covid or vaccines. If they mention it just say you are no interested and change the topic.

Really tough one Redundant Pilot. Good advice from Victoria. At some level you have to accept that it’s your mum’s decision even if she has been brainwashed into having the experimental vaccine.

My mum has turned down the experimental vaccine. She got another letter last week from the NHS saying they’ve been trying to contact her to coerce her into vaccination but sounds from that letter like they aren’t going to write to her again.

My sister has been trying to pressurise my mum into having the vaccine. She also tried to get my mum to reduce her 2000IU per day of vitamin D to 300IU a day, don’t ask. My sister means well, but well meaning people who can’t think for themselves, can be very dangerous to others. My mum then rings me. I explain its her choice but if she wants my advice it’s a very sensible decision not to have the vaccine, and that’s what she wants to hear. She is still taking the 2000IU of vitamin D and don’t see her being easily coerced into the experimental vaccine. I talk to my mum every day so I’m ready to intervene if anybody tries to take away her informed choice not to have the vaccine.

Thanks Freecumbria. I think I need to step away from them for now. I have a similar problem with them and my brother & SIL. They are in Florida, she is a doctor. So everything they say (which as a previous thread here talking about the intelligence of doctors proves) is taken to heart even though it’s total bollocks (the SIL once proclaimed that covid was killing whole families).

I am so sorry. But you did your best. I tried to talk about it with my mother some 20 years ago. I was getting somewhere when she declined the flu vac. But now she has succumbed to the peer pressure.

They have had years of being told vacs are life savers. Mass media and medical brainwashing

So sorry to hear that. My wife and I are both card-carrying scientists of long standing and can see right through some of the hype. But can we convince our children? No is the answer; they have been so brainwashed by the BBC,MSM and government messaging that they reject our thoughts entirely. So it’s certainly not just you!

I think that Mayo offers good advice, keep calm. And difficult though it may be, I think that it’s important to maintain some sort of family dialogue. So my wife and I have a tacit agreement with our children to keep in touch but not mention the jab etc. Hopefully as time goes on they will be more receptive, but it will doubtless have to come from within rather than without.

Sorry you have to go through this.
I am very much in the same situation, just have not talked in such detail to my parents about it as you have. But I had the same comment from my mother.
I have now not talked to my parents in 5 weeks, as there is nothing to talk about. They have not much of a life as the state has forbidden it, I have lost my job and sit at home watching YT and reading LDS.
I haven’t watched all 6.5 hrs of yesterdays meeting yet, but will do over the weekend.
My sister, when I pointed out to her I cannot believe she as a traditional medicine sceptic and vaccine sceptic is not doing any research, replied well, who do I believe? Well, she believes her homeothapath! How did you decide to believe him and not your GP?

What did you think of the last speaker, the guy dealing with biological weapons? I though Reiner handled him quite well. Interesting theories, but a bit too much down the rabbit hole.

449998 ▶▶▶ Redundant Pilot, replying to Silke David, 5, #649 of 1267 🔗

My partner and I thought Reiner handled that guy brilliantly. He was obviously far far too down the rabbit hole and certainly not someone you would put on stand in the courtroom. Also he had no idea of the real data, saying covid was dangerous and even more contagious than SARS. Totally didn’t listen to the other sane expert.

but the way Reiner dealt with him, leaving him with respect, spoke volumes. Reiner I hope will be our hero in all this.

oh, and just to let you know so you won’t have to sit for all of the 6hours and 40min, a lot of it is in German with no subtitles. So I forwarded on until I heard some English (the Spanish doctor speaks in English).

I know how painful this is but PLEASE remember you are not alone. I cannot tell you how many conversations I’ve had with young people who’ve been through exactly this and worse. Your parents have been subjected to military grade brainwashing. You must not blame them. If you can work through your anger and frustration, try to unblock them and give them love. Treat them like children who will not accept that Santa Claus is not real, who cry and scream if you tell them the tooth fairy is made up. Your parents literally CANNOT “take the red pill” (watch the Matrix – it’s where these villains got half their ideas!) They are shooting the messenger because it is MORE frightening to them to accept they’ve been attacked by their government than to believe you are a “silly little girl”. THEY are the victims here. Pat them on the arm and say you agree to disagree and you’ll see them when they feel “safe”. The second shot is unlikely to kill them immediately. While the whole thing is unethical, not everyone will die right away. A few years down the line, maybe, but not right away. It’s like smoking or experimental drug. Except it’s reversed here… with the young telling the elderly not to be so reckless with their health!! Nothing we can do. Try to work through it. This, too, shall pass.

It is so hard for us who are trying to take a stand. I have been thinking about this too. Most around me 50 and over have now had their vaccines and many of my younger friends have said they will just get it to live a normal life. So I have wondered why I can’t just be pragmatic and take the easy road. I don’t know the answer but I can’t. I will now just stick to the people who will accept I haven’t had the vaccine and it doesn’t bother them. The others I will avoid or ditch.

It is particularly painful when it is your family. I too am in this situation. My sister has completely swallowed the line that everyone has covid all of the time but having been allowed into our fathers care home as he is on end of life care and seeing me have 6 lateral flow tests all negative I think she is challenging her own silliness and has begun to think about things differently. She had the vaccine because she swallowed the line it will protect other people but she now regrets this decision.

450084 ▶▶▶ Redundant Pilot, replying to wendy, 9, #655 of 1267 🔗

I think the same Wendy. I keep looking at myself and ask why can’t I just go along with it. But like you, I can’t and I won’t. I’d actually rather die than submit to the tyranny of this country. I don’t know why I feel so strongly about this. I don’t know why this has become so important to me that friends and family who treat me like a moron have become irrelevant. But this means everything. What is happening right now is World War III yet the sheep don’t realise it. The enemy are our own governments, the police, the media. All being run by the elites, for their own ends. Whatever they maybe.

I hope that one day, we all will be the last ones standing. The ones that didn’t succumb to the jab and therefore survived. We will be free and we will be right, and the rest of them can go to hell.

Sorry to hear this RP – very distressing. I had similar with my brother a couple of weeks ago but he still had the vax. As we all know on here and said umpteen times that to change peoples’ mind to even consider going against the government and msm narrative is well nigh impossible – after all if it’s on the bbc then it must be true!
I have no additional advice over the wise words already given , but give it time to blow over and settle and see in future if can pick up the pieces again and avoid the entire topic – it seems the only way for family relationships to survive by ignoring the elephant in the room (so to speak!)

So sorry to hear that Redudant Pilot. Like many of us on here I’ve been through similar with my own parents. I was both very upset and very angry when they took the ‘vaccine’ despite having seen all the facts and videos I’d spent hours compiling about side effects and lack of efficacy. I was almost tempted to wash my hands of them but then I calmed down and realised they have been brain-washed. They, along with millions of other folk, are no longer the people they once were. My dad was always very intelligent, slightly eccentic, always one to go against the crowd, but he follows the propaganda slavishly ignoring facts and logic. My mum was the most scrupulously honest and open person I’ve ever met but she sneaked off to have the vax without telling me in case I ‘kicked off’ about it. Now I completely avoid all talk of vaccines or lockdown with them and it’s not so bad. I hope you can reach a similar state with your own parents. It is heartbreaking to accept – but I think the relationships we have with them will never be quite the same as they once were.

This past week I’ve been thinking about germ theory and how it tells us what causes infections but nothing about who will get infected.
As we all know the vaccine won’t protect us from getting infected or prevent us passing it on to others. But was wondering what affect the vaccine will have on death rates. I have no figures for the UK but I have the figures for York where I live. So here goes on Sep 14th we had 170 deaths from covid which increased to 191 on Dec 14th when vaccination began. Since then deaths have increased to 363 in other words before vaccination deaths from covid increased by 12% in the 3 months prior and 90% afterwards. This does not mean vaccines increase deaths but it does mean they won’t improve your health or reduce your risk of death. When you take into consideration that 99% of people who die from covid have really bad health problems there’s no wonder people are dying. So instead of forcing us all to have vaccines why isn’t the government doing something about bad health?
I know it took them fifty years to deal with smoking even though it was known to increase your chances of lung cancer 16 times more than a non smoker. We know that obesity increases your chance of death or lack of exercise worsens health problems,these and many others should be tackled before vaccination. As I’ve come to realise the government is not really interested in health but in helping big business to profit from ill health.

Shanghai 96 times more people than York.

York 52 times more ‘covid deaths’ than Shanghai.

Therefore York death rate approx. 5000 times that of Shanghai.

Had mine then three weeks later caught COVID!

Yeah my mum’s been kind of ill for 5 days now..headache, temperature , and really tired.

I had these side effects for about 2 days or so. Had oxford jab on a Thursday afternoon then started feeling a bit flu like 24 hours after on Fri afternoon then was a bit ill on the sat and was fine by late Sunday. Its means the vaccine is working

Bet they’re not reporting the side effects either – “it’s worth it to avoid catching the rona”. I had dinner with three friends last night, all three of whom have gladly been jabbed, but disagree with the lockdowns. One of them had a sore arm that has continued for nearly a month. Hasn’t reported it – “it’s minor, so what’s the point?”. They don’t seem to grasp this these “vaccines” are still in the expermental stages – I do try and say that by reporting post-vaccine symptoms, they’ll be helping to improve it, but it tends to land on deaf ears.

On 30th January 2021 the German Corona Extra-Parliamentary Inquiry Committee interviewed Dr. Vanessa Schmidt-Kruger, a Cell Biologist with over 20 years’ experience in molecular medicine working at the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine.
….
I would like to explain a little using the example of the BioNTech (BioNTech) vaccine, focusing on a number of specific points.
….
The first point is that the BioNTech vaccine that is currently already being used is not highly purified, it contains contaminants of certain components. This is in the EMA’s Open Assessment Report, the Agency that has granted the authorisation to this vaccine. The EMA has written this report, and covers this point.
….
In the first section on the GMP they have done very good work I would say: they were very critical, asked for subsequent submission of a great deal of scientific evidence, and asked for numerous improvements. They were very critical and granular, and I was impressed with that. But their approach to the second section concerning side effects was in stark contrast to that. They didn’t conduct any critical scrutiny at all, there are lots of side effects that were not discussed at all in public, they also didn’t critically scrutinise what consequences it will have to inject this into people, particularly vulnerable groups who already have certain organ-related complaints, who are especially susceptible to these adverse effects. I’ll go into them in detail at the end.
….
We know that normally vaccine development takes a very long time . It’s not just the clinical phase: with this vaccine, it’s set at three times two and a half years, i.e., three phases of 2.5 years each plus the evaluation phase, which makes 7 ½ years in total. And then one shouldn’t forget that the production optimisation is also important, at least a year would surely be needed for that. That hasn’t taken place at all. The vaccine is already being sold and used, but the production optimisation isn’t yet by any means completed. And there are considerable deficiencies.
….
The problem that BioNTech had is that in the clinical phase the product, i.e. the RNA, was produced with completely different techniques to how it is being produced now. During the clinical phase they only needed small volumes of vaccine, they were able to use very expensive techniques that delivered highly purified end products. Now that they have entered mass production, that is no longer possible , they have had to switch to lower-cost processes , e.g. using huge quantities of DNA that functions as the substrate to be able to produce the RNA in an in-vitro transcription reaction.
This is done via bacteria, via the fermentation of transformed bacteria that contain this DNA. The bacteria multiply the DNA in huge amounts, and this leads to new dangers or risks, particularly contamination. At the moment for instance the situation is that the DNA is transformed in the bacteria, it is multiplied, next the bacteria are opened and the DNA is extracted, then it is linearised via enzymes, and after that the linearised DNA undergoes in-vitro transcription to produce the RNA using various procedures.
The EMA Committee made various requirements of the vaccine manufacturer, i.e. BioNTech. The applicant needs to now develop and introduce various analysis processes to ensure that the substrate is free of microbiological contaminants – they probably mean E Coli bacteria for example. There don’t seem to be any processes to ensure or monitor for that. They also need to ensure that all the buffers – those are the solvents that are used – are free of RNAses. RNAses are enzymes that degrade RNA.
If there are any contaminants of these RNAse solvents, then RNA in the vaccine will be degraded and the vaccine won’t have any effect anymore. They also have to analyse how strong the activity of the enzymes is; that is very important because I explained that after that the RNA is transcribed from the DNA and then the DNA has to be eliminated, it is digested by enzymes: by DNAses. And if this DNA is not digested well enough, if residues are left, this harbours risks – I’ll come back to the risks from DNA residues, but the activity of the enzymes has to be monitored well and at the end you need to have a pure RNA without any more DNA. And that is not the case. BioNTech has admitted that there are DNA contaminants.
….
So it is theoretically possible that this linearised DNA that is in there as a contaminant could integrate into the host’s cell nucleus in a dividing cell, linearised DNA is optimal for integration.
….
That is the risk. I didn’t really want to get into what can happen if this is the case: genes can be switched on and off, upregulated and downregulated, cancer can develop – there are a lot more possibilities. So this contamination definitely has to be reduced.

Just as gene therapy finally seems to be living up to its promise, a study has revived a lingering worry about the viral vessel that many efforts rely on to ferry therapeutic genes into patients. This “vector,” a stripped-down version of adeno-associated virus (AAV), was thought to be safe because it rarely knits its cargo of human DNA into a cell’s chromosomes, where it might activate cancer-causing genes.

But a study of dogs with hemophilia, treated with AAV up to 10 years earlier, has shown that the vector can readily insert its payload into the host’s DNA near genes that control cell growth. The new data suggest that by slipping into the chromosomes rather than floating free, the therapeutic DNA might have longer lasting benefits. But the findings are also fueling a long-running debate about whether AAV vectors could pose an unacceptable cancer risk.

As far as government officials know, Jesse’s death on Sept. 17 was the first directly related to gene therapy . The official cause, as listed on the death certificate filed by Raper, was adult respiratory distress syndrome: his lungs shut down. The truth is more complicated. Jesse’s therapy consisted of an infusion of corrective genes, encased in a dose of weakened cold virus, adenovirus , which functioned as what scientists call a vector.

Vectors are like taxicabs that drive healthy DNA into cells; viruses, whose sole purpose is to get inside cells and infect them, make useful vectors. The Penn researchers had tested their vector, at the same dose Jesse got, in mice, monkeys, baboons and one human patient, and had seen expected, flulike side effects, along with some mild liver inflammation, which disappeared on its own.

When Jesse got the vector, he suffered a chain reaction that the testing had not predicted — jaundice, a blood-clotting disorder, kidney failure, lung failure and brain death: in Raper’s words, ”multiple-organ-system failure.” The doctors are still investigating; their current hypothesis is that the adenovirus triggered an overwhelming inflammatory reaction — in essence, an immune-system revolt. What they do not understand yet is why.

The unfolding global crisis is best understood as the convergence of the dynamics described by Marx, Kafka, Orwell and Huxley. Let’s start with Franz Kafka , the writer (1883-1924) who most eloquently captured the systemic injustices of all-powerful bureaucratic institutions–the alienation experienced by the hapless citizen enmeshed in the bureaucratic web, petty officialdom’s mindless persecutions of the innocent, and the intrinsic absurdity of the centralized State best expressed in this phrase: “We expect errors, not justice.”

Lockdown Sceptics Senior Doctor:

Excellent stuff, as usual. But:

Can anyone explain to me why this is a rational position for our parliamentary representatives to adopt?

Of course not. It is in practical terms undeniable that the government response was irrational. Taking drastic emergency action in response to a perceived threat without any cost/benefit assessment whatsoever, when there is time make such an assessment, is the very definition of panic. And a panic response is the very definition of irrational behaviour. If it were rational it would not be panic.

Anyone who denies that the government lockdown responses to covid have been panic responses is a liar, or too ignorant or stupid for his opinions to be taken seriously.

I don’t understand why this is being reported differently in the media

I went to Ilkley this morning on the back road from Otley. This road is quieter than the main ‘A’ road which makes it popular among cyclists and runners. I’ve never known as many folk on their bikes and pounding the tarmac as this morning but then again I don’t usually make this journey so early. Great to see so many people about and I had to drive very slowly and carefully.

Nearing Ilkley, on the site of the cricket/sports ground, I saw a ‘mobile testing centre’ which consisted of a van and numerous people milling about in yellow vests and doing their best to look busy. As far as I could ascertain there were NO punters. I arrived at this conclusion on the basis that the ‘yellow vest’ would not be worn by members of the public who were willing to have a prod poked up their nose….only by those who were being paid to stand around on a Saturday morning peddling useless stuff paid for by you and me.

As I drove slowly passed this sad site It crossed my mind to stop and enquire what was going on. What test was on offer? Was it the PCR, (whereby the risk of serious injury by poking a stick within a whisper of your brain is very real) or was it the new Chinese version which, apparently, is thrust up your backside? I don’t know what the side effects might be with the latter but at the very least I would judge it would make your eyes water.

It all gets back to the simple question of course: who in their right mind would get tested for a disease (not proven to exist) when they have no symptoms? And yet these testing stations are still being wheeled out as part of the scare tactics.

I was interested to see the ATL article about the guidance on completing the pre-travel documentation. I note that there are are a number of “may” references eg, you may be asked to present papers etc etc. This is clearly intended to make people prepare for the possibility and therefore go along with the charade.

But the sentence that struck me as particularly incongruous was the sentence “You may carry evidence to support your reason for travel”. This is extremely odd phraseology, as if they are giving us authority to do something that in the normal world would clearly be classified as optional, if indeed it was necessary to make the statement at all. My feeling is that when this was originally drafted they used the word “must” but someone has decided that people might feel it was too authoritarian, or just impossible to enforce, and should be toned down. So instead of just removing the sentence altogether, “must” has been replaced with “may”. But it shows the way their minds are working.

Woke military: let’s recall VDH’s knowledgable words, based on observation and direct conversations with some of the people involved, on the purchase of “woke career insurance” by military bureaucrats.

What do the retired generals do, and the military in general? They say: “you know, I’m thinking about this very carefully – why fight it? All the left did was try to defund the Pentagon and to call us warmongers, but you know what, now that we’re part of them” …. they think: “you know what, if I want to be in Northrop or I want to be in Lockheed and I’m left-wing general – I’ve retired and I go right in the revolving door – Elizabeth Warren’s not going to go after me any more! …. this is wonderful!”

So this is part of the insidious, nightmarish phenomenon of wokeism, that all of these people are coming out of the woodwork, and they’re telling us that they’re woke now, and therefore they’re able to make a lot of money because they’ve bought woke insurance. Career woke insurance.

https://youtu.be/K7b-HT3DLh0?list=PLKDm1nJ92oeuZAAP9kTW2bOOIiIGrTndT&t=1924

This is just another particular aspect of the general phenomenon, following the decades long triumph of the woke left in the societies of the US sphere – opportunist establishment types jumping on the bandwagon because it’s the way to get ahead.

And such people, of course, have no hesitation in enthusiastically joining in the denunciation and removal of any dissenters, even though they are not true believers themselves, but mere opportunists. In fact, such people are often the most outwardly zealous of the denouncers and the activists.

This is the society the left built, through the long C20th. Not the early C20th left of practical material assistance to the working classes, but the ideological left of inflicting radical change on societies in order to remake them better.

The relevance is firstly that a globalist putsch took place in the USA in November 2020. The evidence of massive electoral fraud is overwhelming. But that is only part of the story. As Mark’s quote makes clear there is a huge amount of bureaucratic and legalistic intimidation going on, designed to induce compliance throughout the power structure, that’s in addition to the huge physical intimidation from Antifa. Did you know an Antifa found with a gun in the Capitol grounds during the “insurrection” was released while many naive Trump supporters remain jailed. Of course you didn’t because the MSM is hiding what is going on in the USA. Did you know Kamala Harris is having to take calls from Benjamin Netynahu because of Biden’s mental incapacity – covered up by the MSM during the campaign?

What is happening in the USA is like the fall of Rome, it’s just no one is covering the story.

American politics is currentl;y very relevant to lockdown because, throughout, it is has been pro-globalist forces who have been pushing lockdown the strongest: the CCP, Democrats, Far Left, Macron, Zuckerberg, Gates, Big Pharma, Big Tech…wherever you look it is the globalists and their friends pushing lockdown, mandatory masks, and coercive vaccination. They have tried to impose lockdown on the whole of the USA but there is a lot of state-level resistance.

Paraphrased conversation that I’ve had 4 times in the past 2 weeks when collecting from companies like builder’s merchants, tile places, DIY chains:

Starts with me:

  • “That’s a nasty cough you have” to the female, mid-20s (always been a female mid-20s for some reason and not the burly hairy bloke who has a cough)
  • had it for weeks, can’t shake it off
  • do you think it’s because you are wearing the mask all day?
  • pause then “probably”
  • so why you wearing it behind the screen? not required.
  • company says we have to
  • but law says you don’t when behind that screen or not within close contact with customers, should be in the risk assessment they gave to you when they introduced the policy along with the dangers of wearing the mask for extended periods, the correct procedure for weraing a mask, the exemptions and so on
  • what risk assessment?
  • the one they must do whenever a working requirement or policy is changed and you have to agree with. The one it says on the door they have shown you.
  • they’ve shown us nothing. Where does it say they have shown us one?
  • one this sign here, top line where it clearly states that the staff have been shown a covid safe risk assessment
  • they’ve shown us nothing
  • we’ll you’d better report this to your manager then and ask for it plus you’d better get that cough seen to by a doctor, persistent new cough is a covid symptom or could eb cancer if it’s a prolonged cough, don’t you watch the TV adverts?.
  • is it? I didn’t know that.
  • Yep. Best go to your GP and he will either get you and your entire household to isolate or say it’s down to the mask wearing and you have a bacterial or viral lung infection which could kill you if you are not careful, one of the hazards that should be in the risk assessment then you can go on the sick at the company’s expense plus ask for compensation as they have not warned you about this health risk nor given you a risk assessment with it in and therefore broken the law
  • really?
  • Yep. Speak to the health and safety executive if you don’t believe me
  • can’t afford to isolate for 2 weeks on zero pay
  • well try statutory sick pay, company has to pay that if doctor signs you off
  • do they?
  • Yep
  • cough cough cough
  • take the mask off, when with me you are exempt.
  • why?
  • did the company tell you the exemptions?
  • No, they just said ask a customer not wearing one if they need one and if they say exempt then drop the subject.If they refuse then serve them as quick as possible and get rid of them, don’t confront them. What exemption do you mean?
  • I’m nearly deaf and the law states that if you are with someone that requires clear speech and/or lip reads and /or requires facial expressions to understand you then you are exempt from wearing the mask when with them. I’m here etc etc
  • off comes mask, big sigh of relief and so on, next time I go they see me come to collect, off comes mask straight away or other members of staff have heard through the grapevine and take their’s off before I say anything

I’ve reported my concerns over companies not meeting their legal obligations about risks assessments, hazards to their staff etc but no reply, unsurprisingly.

Lawyer’s missing a trick here – there must be a huge market of cases out there where the companies have failed in their health and safety obligations and are now on the hook for compensation to their staff or do I know about this as I’m out and about spekaing to lots of people and not stuck in an office waiting for them to come to me, which they won’t do as they don’t know the basics of the legislation. You will need to advertise.

It’s Aldi. I haven’t visited Tesco or Asda for many years.

When doing a complaint that might turn into a claim, a strange point is that the Human Rights Act doesn’t apply to private businesses. But it does apply to public bodies, e.g. the NHS.

450115 ▶▶▶▶▶ Awkward Git, replying to John001, 12, #780 of 1267 🔗

Ask them for their corporate risk assessment on covid.

All they do is copy and paste the government’s covid safe guidelines into a corporate template and call it good.

But it isn’t as the government stuff is just guidance so no force of law and does not have to be followed (I have this in writing from the Government Legal Department) nor does it have any evidence to back it up so inadmissible for an evidence based risk assessment as required by health and safety legislation.

Tesco had these problems:

“I have also perused your risk assessments from a professional point of view (I have to approve risk assessments as a senior manager) and there is one very large, glaring omission.

Nowhere, in any of the risk assessments I read, did it make mention of nor training for staff on the hazards of wearing a mask or face covering.

Original complaint – “Tesco not made staff aware of hazards and illnesses physical and mental of prolonged mask wearing up to and including death Tesco not briefed staff on initial signs of medical difficulties when mask wearing nor 1st aid”

“Your risk assessments are just regurgitated government and council guidelines and WHO press releases etc put into a corporate spread sheet and contain no reference to real research.

In here I listed the physical and psychological problems.

“As there is very, very little anecdotal evidence supporting the wearing of masks – even the BMA admits this – and the reasons being given out by government and from NGOs do not make sense nor include any science or medical facts the question to ask is why the push for mass mask wearing?”

As I raised earlier there is a real lack of evidence being supplied by central Government, councils hold no evidence and the BMA admits they have no evidence so how do Tesco know their steps are adequate or sufficient when all they have referenced is non-scientific guidelines?

There is much evidence freely available by many independent researchers and specialists not attached to SAGE or Government that is increasing by the day that government is not “following the science” as they claim but making it up as they go along.

I am willing to give Tesco some of these links so that they can start their own research to confirm this along with my FOI request answers that show this is true.”

For some reason no more contact after this point, not even a reply.

Good work. You could mention PRC Claims.co.uk to them as well, as they seem to be the only legal organisation getting involved in this kind of thing (I have a theory that the law society or similar has told its members not to get involved in pro/anti-lockdown legal cases, probably after pressure from central government).

Controversial point. Maybe if our healthcare system wasn’t always ‘in crisis’ and delivered better patient outcomes, nurses would be paid more.
I’m not criticising nurses at all. My sister is one and I know how hard many of them work.
But I don’t think our system works. Maybe if we had a look at the other healthcare systems in the developed world with a humble attitude, rather than worshiping ‘Our NHS’ like its some holy institution.
It was invented in 1945, has become an incomprehensible mix of public and private provision, it doesn’t actually work that well.

450085 ▶▶ OKUK, replying to james007, 2, #790 of 1267 🔗

Simple state regulated compulsory social insurance schemes, where you can choose your provider are often ranked as the best for quality and value for money and patient satisfaction. The USA’s insurance system is hugely expensive, so not a good model and excludes way too many people.

I’ve wondered before about a health voucher scheme, where you get some money back at the end of the year if you don’t make use of it might be helpful.

450199 ▶▶ Awkward Git, replying to james007, 6, #791 of 1267 🔗

I’ve said for years, when asked how the NHS compares with what I’ve experienced overseas, it’s average at best and run for the management, not the end users.

To me the best system would be to keep the bit that works and bin the rest. I know some bits will sound cruel but it will work out in th end:

  1. cut NI by 75%, add to Income tax, get rid of employer’s 13.5% contribution
  2. the only bit that works is when you are wheeled into A+E unconcious from an ambulance and kept alive so keep this bit unchanged for absolutely everybody
  3. all the fancy fertility treatments, sex changes, plastic surgery (more on that in a minute), anti-smoking, lose weight, psychiatry, “I want” treatments, bed blocking as no-one will accept an old person etc, all non-core services are defunded
  4. once out of A+E you get the basic minimum – for example no fancy new limbs but a wooden leg, hook, reconstructive surgery so you have the right bits in the right place but nothing fancy and so on
  5. NHS should be like the social security, a temporary safety net for those who need help but not a crutch and those who can afford better pay for it themselves with a tax break (maybe not 100%) for their medical costs
  6. more emphasis on personal responsibility to stay healthy, look after yourself
  7. more emphasis and help for famillies helping each other with those who are aging and/or ill
  8. aim to actually cure people and not just have them on drugs for life that do nothing except maintain the status quo and rack up profits but actually solve problems not require more drugs to “cure” the side effects of the other drugs
  9. anything over this your own insurance pays – but not as per the American system that screws everyone but look at what works and keeps prices down and go for the best bits of each system worldwide
450309 ▶▶▶ james007, replying to Awkward Git, 2, #792 of 1267 🔗

Absolutely agree. Although I would go further, and scrap NI entirely and have a single income tax. (I would simplify the entire tax system but that’s another story).

The US system is appalling. Unfortunately whenever the issue that the NHS is fairly average compared to over countries, people say that ‘yes but it isn’t the US system is bad’ . When you point to all the other systems in the developed world that aren’t socialized, they say ‘yes but they spend more on their healthcare’. When you look into this later claim, you discover that the reason they spend more is that healthcare isn’t rationed in the way that it is here. People get a basic cover, but pay additional voluntary costs do upgrade and improve their care.

The worst thing about the NHS, is that we are expected to be eternally grateful for it. Maybe if other essential services (eg. broadband, electricity etc…) were socialized, we would have to clap for them too.

Anyway I am not optimistic about change. As we have found, all politicians and ‘experts’ love centrally planned systems. It gives them the delusion that they control every aspect of our lives and have the power to save us all. I am a big fan of Hayek’s writings on the tyranny of central planning.

One sometimes hears from government sources the phrase ‘offered the vaccine’

But in reality it’s not quite like that. I have just received my reminder call up papers from the NHS. The heading at the top of the letter (in bold characters) is ‘Book your coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine appointments now’.

In the section ‘Please ignore this letter if:’ (again in bold lettering ) there are three reasons given for doing so:

1) You would prefer to be vaccinated through your local GP services. If you do, please wait for your GP services to contact you directly, if they haven’t already

2) You already have an appointment booked to be vaccinated at a local GP service. If you have, there is nothing you need to do except turn up to your scheduled GP appointment.

3) You’ve has your first vaccine dose already. If you have, the NHS will contact you when it’s time for your second dose.

You will doubtless notice that there isn’t a fourth reason given for ignoring the letter, that is : If you don’t want to have the ‘vaccine’. So it isn’t really an ‘offer’ at all, it’s an instruction, clear and simple.

450103 ▶▶ Stringfellow Hawke, replying to isobar, 12, #811 of 1267 🔗

That means it is a violation of the principle of fully informed consent. is the letter signed by a specific person? If so, might be worth taking Rachel Elnaugh’s advice on board and sending some emails and making a bit of noise. because this is unethical at best. UK column did a bit a while back on Dr Niki Kanani, who was pushing vaccines very hard, which opened her up to complaints because she was only pushing very selective one-sided info, and appeared to have not insubstantial financial interests in doing so, to boot.

450111 ▶▶▶ isobar, replying to Stringfellow Hawke, 2, #812 of 1267 🔗

No, it isn’t. As far as potential side effects go all it says it that ‘Very few people cannot have this vaccine. If you have had bad allergic reactions in the past, it is importance that read all the guidance. You can also discuss it when you book, or with a health professional when you attend your appointment’ .

It gives a link to more information at http://www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination . But I haven’t had time to check that out yet. There was a small booklet which came with the first lot of call up papers but I don’t have that anymore. It was pretty crap anyway.

450118 ▶▶▶▶ Julian, replying to isobar, 12, #813 of 1267 🔗

I’ve declined for many reasons, but I did have a little look at the various guidance notes available to see what it said about my health condition. Reams of the same general waffle, tiny bit at the end about people with autoimmune disorders, along the lines of “there’s no evidence it’s not safe for such people”. Well OK, so what you mean is there’s no evidence it’s safe because it’s not been tested on such people in sufficient numbers and over sufficient time for anything worthwhile to be understood about it.

It’s similar to what that tool Van Tam said about the safety for pregnant or wanting-to-be-pregnant women – “logically there’s no reason to think it’s not safe”. It’s simply throwing out of the window what has previously been the orthodoxy when it comes to a medicl treatment or vaccine – assume it is unsafe until proved otherwise.

Like you, I have several reasons for not being a prick.

Picking up again on your point. The letter starts off by saying Dear Xxxx

‘We are writing to you again as experts recommend that people in your age group should be among the first to receive the free NHS coronavirus vaccine. This is because evidence shows that risk of serious illness due to coronavirus increases with age’

Note ‘first to receive’ rather than ‘first to be offered’ In other words they assume that it’s a given.

What a pillock he is. By their own admission, covid was something of an unknown right at the start. So the time to “look back, reflect and learn lessons” was from the start and ongoing, as more information became available. If you’re dealing with a known threat, like a fire, you put it out then look into what started it. If you’re dealing with something new, you have to be prepared to change tack as you understand more. Instead they got stuck in Feb/March 2020 thinking and have refused to budge ever since.

Here’s a curious one. Reiner F is undoubtedly one of the good guys and in many respects, our hopes are . I thought I’d look up a bit of his case history against VW, Cunard etc.

Type “reiner fuellmich wikipedia” into Duck Duck Go and see what the first result is!

Interestingly, his name does not feature on that page at all, at least not currently. What’s even more curious, is not only does he not have a page of his own there, but a general search for his name doesn’t result in a single hit.

The Orwellian gibberish from Isle of Man Chief Minister Howard Quayle ought to alert his family and friends to the need to stage an intervention:

‘The virus spreads when people mix and so we need to do all we can to minimise that mixing … In the interests of children and broader society, we need to prevent children from mixing.’

**That’s right. In the interests of children, for whom risk of infection/illness/child-to-child and child-to-adult transmission is negligible, it is utterly imperative that we forbid them from mixing.**

‘I do believe though that if we get this right one more time – if we stamp out once and for all the transmission that has been sitting under the surface for some time now –and in parallel if we protect our vaccination programme – this could hopefully be the last time.’

**So, we need to get right one more time the stamping out of transmission, something we got right before but need to get right again, and once we get it right again, then we’re laughing.**

‘If all is well, as we progress over the next 21 days, I sincerely hope that we will not have to tighten up further. It has worked before. We know what to do.’

**Now stay with me. It has worked before, but we’re doing it again because, while it worked before, we need to do it again to show that it can work. We knòw what to do. We have the experience. We’ve got this right before and we’ll get it right again.**

This is an Orwellian nightmare.

They Don’t Control Me’—Vernon Jones on Cancel Culture & Leaving the Democratic Party | CPAC 2021
Interesting interview on a couple of counts, I think. A black American lifelong Democrat who as far as I can see probably drifted into the Democrat Party for race loyalty reasons in his youth, and perhaps due to sympathy with the “economic left”, but has, as he himself claims “conservative values” – a social conservative I think.

Illustrates the clear groundswell of support in some sections of the US black community for Trumpist Republicanism that has so embarrassed and angered woke lefties, and also the rejection by socially more conservative Democrats of the now utterly dominant woke left agenda in their party.

Clearly a lot of UK former Labour supporters will sympathise with his declaration that “ I didn’t leave the party, the party left me “. Indeed it chimes with the accurate diagnosis here by Phil Shannon on leftlockdown sceptics of the abandonment of the genuine interests of working class people, by the political left. This seems to be a civilisational change, across the countries of the US sphere.

In the particular US context, this also relates to the refusal by the left to address Trump’s consequent winning of working class support, and their instead flying into hysterical rage and hatred over it:

It’s tragic that this country is at this place right now, because it didn’t have to be this way. They could have said Donald Trump represented a lost constituency that … globalised culture had ignored in a very amoral fashion and that was an understandable pushback, but the way to beat Donald Trump is to appeal to his voters in the way that the Democratic Party used to do, and win them back. They didn’t do that. They didn’t do that because they wanted open borders, and they’re tribalists that believe in identity politics, and they don’t care about people of the working class any more, and they feel that their money and their power and their titles and their degrees have allowed them to be an unquestioned elite. Sort of Platonic Guardians that we … don’t dare question .”

“Throughout the first decade of this millennium there was an ideological shift, an inflection point, that became most clear in the rise of a little known state representative who was appointed to become a Senator from Illinois, his name was Barack Obama. In the background of Obama’s rise were the people who designed the modern political left. Those Obama creationists were/are hardline revolutionary communist types.”

JB omitted to highlight the most important thing about the travel permits:

But let’s leave this to one side and go to a pertinent second question. Will it be effective? And let’s supply an immediate answer. Of course not.
For one thing, the accompanying blurb provides so many permissible reasons for travel that it is hard to envisage the new departure form blocking anybody at the gate.
You can go abroad if it is for work, if you are volunteering, for education, on medical and compassionate grounds, for weddings, for funerals, “to fulfil legal obligations”, “to carry out activities related to buying, selling, letting or renting a residential property”. This is not the full list.
It is not so much that you could drive a bus through these exemptions as you could do it on two wheels, backwards. Will it be checked by the airlines and border staff who are supposed to ask for it? Who knows, but my personal experience of the passenger locator form is that no-one mentions it, even if they have the time to do so.
Will the situation be clear to everyone on Monday morning? Probably not. As seems to be the case with every initiative launched at present, it is only in play England. Different rules apply to Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. So why bother? Because it’s theatre.

OPEN LETTER re VACCINATION MANDATES BY EMPLOYERS FOR EMPLOYEES OR POTENTIAL EMPLOYEES

The UKMFA, Lawyers for Liberty and The Workers Union of England have published an Open Letter, for employees and potential employees to share with employers who are proposing to mandate Covid-19 vaccines on their employees. It outlines the legal rights of the employee to informed consent and medical freedom, and relevant employment law protections afforded to employees. It summarises the legal duties of employers. It also summarises the potential risks of Covid-19 vaccines and the trial data which indicates that Covid-19 vaccines do NOT prevent infection or transmission of the virus.

It isn’t controversial that Gates believes in depopulation through vaccination, he’s said as much himself. What’s controversial is the mechanism through which depopulation occurs. The debate has become one of denial of the actual facts i.e. that Gates believes in depopulation through vaccination.

450259 ▶▶▶ JayBee, replying to Noumenon, 1, #883 of 1267 🔗

In fairness, I think it is clear that he meant less births in the 3rd world will lesd to that and happen automatically, if vaccinations reduce the childrens premature deaths there.
Which still doesn’t give him the right to get involved, validifies the/his Malthusian idea that population growth is bad, can’t be managed otherwise and therefore that it must be stopped, and for sure not to promote or even coerce people into getting vaxxed in the developed world.

450341 ▶▶▶▶ PastImperfect, replying to JayBee, #884 of 1267 🔗

It is a double bonus his way. Greatly reduced population very quickly and then he and his co-conspirators lord it over all the schmucks that are left.

450344 ▶▶▶▶ Noumenon, replying to JayBee, #885 of 1267 🔗

I wasn’t accusing Gates of killing people with the vaccine, I believe you are correct (reducing infant mortality is his stated reason anyway). But, there is a controversy because some say that vaccines could be used to increase mortality or reduce fertility (I’m open minded but I don’t believe this). The problem is that the media rarely go to this debate and prefer not to mention Gates population agenda at all as if the only accusation is that he’s poisoning people.

A PECK OF DIRT A DAY, KEEPS THE DOCTOR AWAY

Under our nails,
Where bacteria hides,
Lies a wealth of goodness,
To help our insides.

Our immune system needs,
To live close to the dirt,
If we sanitise often,
Our bodies’ we hurt.

We need to have muck,
So don’t follow the lies,
You’ll end up unhealthy,
If you sanitise.

A sterile world means,
We won’t be robust,

My neighbour is a nurse at what was, and still is, supposed to be one of the potentially ‘overwhelmed’ hospitals in North Wales, and last spring/summer between 1 April and 30 June she had two (separate) weeks on holiday away with her family, eight weeks on ‘standby’ at home (never called in) and just two separate weeks at work (which happened to be the weeks before her annual leave so I suspect her attendance was for bureaucratic reasons).

She had a family holiday for two weeks in August (campervan holiday in Abersoch) but just before that, and since, she appears to have been back to working her normal shifts.

What puzzled me about her time off was that she is a midwife – what happened to all the pregnancies and births during that period if she wasn’t required to attend to them? She had told me in April that she was on standby for ’emergency’ covid work when they were expecting to be ‘overwhelmed’. . So begs the question as to who was doing the midwifery functions.

Frankly, if I had to choose a country from which to obtain high quality, unbiased information, about anything, China would not feature in my top one hundred and ninety-four countries
But there you go, lockdown worked under the control of the kind and caring CCP. Hoorah, cheering all round, and the first person to stop cheering gets shot. Well, we don’t want any damned nay-sayers, do we? After that, according to almost everything I have read, everywhere, it worked for everyone else too. Remarkable.

I commented many times early on that Cui bono? leads directly and mainly to China, and that we fell for their ruse.
In 90% of cases, those comments were then censored.
But I don’t think the Chinese contemplated that we would be so thick that we continue to do so a full year later.

I noticed that in California a few years ago. I’d heard it was all very liberal (which is true in the cities) but out in the sticks it’s not much different to the Bible Belt. Guns and ammo on sale in the gas stations and ‘Jesus Saves’ signs etc.

Definitely worth a read. I agree with him on all counts and I believe red states and conservatives in the US are our only hope. Sweden was great in the beginning as they were like the control group, but it became evident pretty quickly that data and actual science don’t hold sway. The graphs comparing California and Florida are damning and yet the Covidians pay no mind. Only action will move the needle at this point and people are voting with their feet by fleeing California and New York. As more states open completely I’m hoping it becomes unsustainable for Canada to stay locked down.

That was PHE. A friend who manages bed capacity for a large university hospital trust carried out the orders.

The story got out in the end of course.

What didn’t get out, is that not only were they ordered to clear out the generals by transferring patients to nursing homes, but they also transferred them to small community hospitals. He knows of at least one significant outbreak resulting in deaths that occurred a result of his actions.

I should add that he’s a full on covidian. I visited him in the Autumn and there were masks, gloves and sanitiser everywhere. His hands were cracked and bleeding from overusing the gunk. All very sad.

B & Q totally packed this afternoon. Wall to wall compliance on the mask front. Its becoming lonely out there.

Listened to Premier Christian radio where the govt covid narrative runs unchecked. Even had a Christian medic on today talking about why there may be been excess non covid deaths but failed to mention or criticise the govt fear propaganda pumped out remorselessly over the last 12 months although his hesitancy around this topic suggested he was aware of it.

Fired off a long missive questioning why they are simply accepting this narrative and pushing the vaccine narrative on to people without question. Also pushing the AGW bs just to make things worse.

Be interesting to see the response but they seem to have a ‘globalist’ agenda as this was mentioned more than once.

450253 ▶▶ Liberty, replying to Seansaighdeoir, 10, #946 of 1267 🔗

It’s sad that Premier have bought the narrative, but unsurprising.

I find it absolutely baffling that in a world where many Christians are persecuted unto death, the clergy in Britain have decided to voluntarily shut the churches because of a disease with a 99% survival rate. In London during the visitation of 1665, the churches remained open – the only problem was there weren’t many clergy available because most of them had died.

450290 ▶▶▶▶ Annie, replying to Cranmer, 6, #951 of 1267 🔗

Many died because they went into plague-stricken households and ministered to the dying.
So did some clergy during the Black Death.

450326 ▶▶▶▶ Liberty, replying to Cranmer, 9, #952 of 1267 🔗

We, as Christians in this nation, were very poorly prepared for this situation. We have forgotten what persecution really is. We didn’t think it could happen in Britain. We were flabby in our knowledge of scripture, badly taught on the subject of Bible prophecy and sold out to science as the solution for everything medical. We had forgotten who gives life and who has the power to take it. We believed we were the masters of our own destiny and that the vaccine was a God-sent miracle. I pity the blind church and pray that God opens her eyes. This is church’s best opportunity to shine Christ’s love and hope into a broken fear filled world and most Christians have not risen to the challenge. Some of us are though and our voices are growing, our resolve stronger than ever and our faith is growing in the knowledge that God is calling us for such a time as this.

450338 ▶▶▶▶▶ Annie, replying to Liberty, 5, #953 of 1267 🔗

Yes I think there’s a danger that as more and more sheeple start going out and about, they will notice that people aren’t dropping dead and will assume that it’s down to the vaccines and social distancing/masks etc so may become even more compliant with masks.

450437 ▶▶▶ Seansaighdeoir, replying to Cranmer, #963 of 1267 🔗

Thats the message now. On PCR there was a report suggesting just that. It may have been a news report but the message was clear – the numbers are down because of the vaccine and the lockdown. Its dispiriting to think people are being fed this and believe it. Especially the old and the vulnerable.

450318 ▶▶ ElizaP, replying to Seansaighdeoir, 11, #964 of 1267 🔗

When I went in town yesterday – I noticed the mask-wearing ratio has gone up a lot – even in the streets (location Cardigan – ie small town in West Wales). Had two nasty little incidents whilst out too – someone I thought I was friendly with (albeit not a friend as such) came into a shop I was in and saw my mask-free face and couldnt make an excuse to get out of the shop fast enough! It was expected that when I walked past a “prize little b*tch” in the street subsequently she gave me A Look and, very deliberately, turned sideways and faced the shop window as I went past (a stunt I’ve never had pulled on me yet – but then I know what a ***** she is – so just burst out laughing at her and said “Idiot!” in response). But those two types of incident were both new ones to me – and I wondered what guff everyone has been fed in the propaganda over the last week or so to provoke the outbreak of increased outdoor masks. Little things like that are downers even – but I’m holding the faith….(NOT the Covidian one I hasten to add).

I went to a big Tesco today (other ‘superstores’ are available) and was the only maskless adult there. It must have looked a bit like Moses parting the Red Sea as the crowds around me instinctively parted on the approach of a leper – a surreal and depressing experience.

Since I was last there they have posted ‘No mask, no entry’ signs, but the mystical power of a plastic card on a lanyard protected me from challenge. Phew.

I am really angry. I got the dreaded letter today from the NHS about the gene therapy.
I know, already posted earlier but they just assume you are going to get it. (Reminds me of the old TV licence “reminder” letters pre-internet that did not have an option for “I do not own a TV” – didn’t have one for nearly 20 years).
Why I am so angry is that in the leaflet you have to look really hard to find any mention of allergies and then it said that you should talk to your health professional. I don’t have a GP anymore.
IF I were uninformed and wanted to have the gene therapy, and did not know that many people with allergies have suffered severe reactions, I probably would not be any the wiser and would have gone ahead and booked the thing.
Thankfully I know better (of course would not have it even if I didn’t have the allergy.)
But I am furious because it is blatant and clear that all the NHS shits would much rather that I died of a serious reaction to it, rather than joined the ranks of the “decliners”.
This messianic adherence to a narrative is terrifying.

I kept getting invitations to have a smart meter fitted. I told them we live way beyond the range of wifi technology so a meter wouldn’t work. They carried on, regardless. Eventually, I allowed them to book me an appointment. The engineer came all the way out here to the middle of nowhere and said “sorry, you can’t have a smart meter because there’s no wifi.” I said, “I know and now you do too.” Nothing since.

I wish there was an option of having my name and address removed from the NHS database. I’ve also received the dreaded letter which remains unopened. I might tick the box addressee no longer at this address and post back although I imagine this will send them into a spin.
I am absolutely sick of the letters about various health screening tests which periodically land on my doormat and the ‘an appointment has been made for you’ ones fill me with rage. It’s a scary tactic designed to make people feel they have to comply. The opt out process is deliberately made difficult with a separate form for each health screening and isn’t easy to find. If anyone knows how you can de register from yours GP please let me know.

Mrs F is being pestered by post and phone despite the fact that she has had two auto-immune conditions in the past fifteen years: thyroiditis (Riedel’s) and GCA. No consideration has been given as to whether experimental gene therapy would be sensible; not even a mention. Just, “come and be stabbed because we’ve got to get the numbers up and if we don’t get the numbers up it will be your fault when we have to start experimenting on children.” Actually they didn’t say that in so many words but it’s only a matter of time.

Just got back from a second visit to my local hospital in South Africa. Nasty parasite infection! OK – I pay but it’s a delight; spotless, very pleasant staff and no queues.

I looked into the covid ward again. Empty. No sign of the deadly variant and I didn’t have to step over any bodies.

That is clearly a breach of the Equality Act 2010.

I also pointed out there is no such thing as proof of exemption and quoted the relevant sections from the government guidance and the actual regulations. They both removed the signs and replaced them with ones that added after ‘masks must be worn’ – ‘unless exempt’. I did the same to Sainsburys by writing to their Chief Executive. Same result.

Yes, Nymeria, I must admit I have grown very weary too recently after spending a full 12 months on the same mission (I am a qualified researcher so have been exasperated at the behaviour of the government, media and lack of challenges from even some of my intelligent colleagues and friends – especially those who refused even to read or listen to any of the evidence I shared with them. Have lost quite a few friends as a result and am now shunned by some of my former work colleagues and clients). I have also just deactivated my Facebook account because the ignorance and stupidity of many posts and comments from local community groups and a few brainwashed friends was causing me too much anger, annoyance and stress to the point I ran up a £300 dental bill from damage caused by grinding my teeth!

So grateful to have access to LS and rational, sensible, informed, ‘normal’ people:). I have also joined the Time for Recovery group and the Covid-19 Assembly mentioned in previous LS newsletters and have carried out some research work for them, which stops me from feeling completely helpless.

“This will get interesting in June, when most who want the vaccine will have gotten it, and they’ll be faced with having to be around and socialize with those who haven’t. My own limited perspective from a substantial majority of my own friends and family is that it’s going to be the cause of fractured friendships and relationships, likely permanently.

In amongst those like-minded friends, are some who are totally dismissive of the idea of conspiracy theories. They go along with the government narrative, but are happy enough to break the ‘rules’ when it suits, typically on a Friday night when we get together. They’re not hardline zealots, but certainly not on the same wavelength as me regarding my stance on this shit show. I’m pretty certain they’re not bothered about the fact I am unvaccinated. The other friends I hang around with are hardline anti-lockdown, and they definitely won’t be getting jabbed either. There may be some difficulties with one of my sisters in particular, but we don’t live close by and rarely see each other anyway. You are lucky to be living rural, Lisa.

Moving has been my saviour. I would have seriously lost my shit living in a condo in downtown Toronto even though it was on two levels and had a terrace. We re-located “temporarily” to our country place in early May last year and never looked back. It was sad because we’d sold our house, the kids were gone, and we bought the condo so we could more easily travel without having to worry about a house. We spent quite a bit on decorating and making it exactly what I wanted, only to sell it less than a year later. No regrets though; there is absolutely nothing for me in the city. I can go days and weeks without leaving my property and not seeing anyone in a mask. We have friends here but I’m finding it harder to socialize because it’s stressful to self-censor.

Apologies for the predictable question from me, Shropshire Lass: had you had a flu jab at any time?

451152 ▶▶▶▶ ShropshireLass, replying to Portnadler, #1070 of 1267 🔗

Yes, I had had the flu jab each year in September after I caught the seasonal flu in 2014 and have never been so ill – I developed a bacterial infection on top of it and almost died. When I went back to work 2 months later I had to work part time for another 4 months. Had the flu vaccine as normal in September 2019, then caught Covid-19 in December 2019 when doing some research work with a group of other researchers who had arrived from China just 2 days before, (one was from Wuhan and the one who had a persistent cough), the next day he developed a mild fever. A week later I fell sick too with a persistent dry cough in the throat, the next day developing a mild fever, headache and losing my sense of taste and smell. Day 3 felt a bit lethargic but the fever and headache had gone (had taken paracetamol). Day 4 felt much better and continued to recover rapidly. Cough reduced but it was over a week before it faded away completely, though it remained in the throat and did not go to my chest (had slept propped up on 3 pillows at night). Have felt worse from bad colds, so I didn’t think much of it and continued to work through, apart from – well that is clearly a new virus, never had anything like that before. After talking to the Chinese researchers, it wasn’t until I did some personal research myself in January – nothing to do with the one the group of us had been working on – that I realised it must have been the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Then in February 2020 the news kicked off in the press. Later I went to get an antibody test and I had antibodies to Covid-19, which confirmed the virus I had had in December was indeed Covid-19. 2020 did not have the flu vaccine, but have been taking vitamin D, C and zinc supplements since September instead.

Genuine question that has got me ticking – thought someone on here probably knows. What actually happens to the samples people are giving for NHS Test & Trace (or whatever it is called) in regards to after testing for Sars CoV2. Do we know that the whole sample gets destroyed after a certain time? What information do they take beyond the necessary RNA/DNA to determine Sars CoV2 and can they keep hold of that for any other purpose? I have tried looking all over the net and can’t find any indication of what happens to the sample after it has been tested for the virus…..

Your DNA will be on the swab. Whether this is isolated and stored has never been stated.

What do they not understand about the word “consent”? It actually means you don’t have to do something. It means it’s your choice. It doesn’t mean that you need to be hounded and abused and penalised until you do. That would in fact be “mandatory”. Difficult concept I know.

Many festivals are SERIOUSLY terrible anyway. Really really terrible. I would not go to most of them anyway for loads of reasons. Things like:
Over the top security and Police harassment
Not enough bogs
Terrible camping
Expensive drinks
Can’t bring your own booze-Bag searches
Masses of camping chairs and pic-nik blanket in front of stages and people sitting down or even worse lying down and asleep
Too many people in arenas, packed in tightly
not enough bars, huge queues
Reading Rock is a terrible festival

Not to start with and even well into the 80s it was fine: big enough for anyone and everyone to do their own thing and never go to the main stage at all. Which I mostly didn’t except on a couple of occassions (for Dr. John and later, Joe Cocker). Things began to decline when the security wall went up. The spirit changed. I last went in ’95 and I knew I’d never go back. Good memories though and I’m glad I have them. That vast valley as the sun went down and the firesmoke hung in the June evening air ….

It was an inland sea of tents and flags and woodsmoke. And the endless throb of music coming at you from all directions. People wrapped in blankets and a midsummer dream that never really leaves you (as you might be able to tell!) Really special. Thought it would last forever.

Antibody-based drugs and vaccines against severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) are being expedited through preclinical and clinical development.

Data from the study of SARS-CoV and other respiratory viruses suggest that anti-SARS-CoV-2 antibodies could exacerbate COVID-19 through antibody-dependent enhancement (ADE).

Previous respiratory syncytial virus and dengue virus vaccine studies revealed human clinical safety risks related to ADE, resulting in failed vaccine trials.

….

One potential hurdle for antibody-based vaccines and therapeutics is the risk of exacerbating COVID-19 severity via antibody-dependent enhancement (ADE).

….

Safety concerns for SARS-CoV-2 vaccines were initially fuelled by mouse studies that showed enhanced immunopathology, or ERD, in animals vaccinated with SARS-CoV following viral challenge

https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/32908214/

450445 ▶▶ V, replying to V, 3, #1137 of 1267 🔗

ADE has been observed in SARS, MERS and other human respiratory virus infections including RSV and measles, which suggests a real risk of ADE for SARS-CoV-2 vaccines and antibody-based interventions. However, clinical data has not yet fully established a role for ADE in human COVID-19 pathology.

Indeed. I believe the Dutch have implemented it in some cities. It encourages drivers (and pedestrians) to accept personal responsibility rather than subcontracting it out to officialdom in the form of signage and traffic management systems.

What’s odd is that I am sure the generation of youngsters I belong to who were sixth formers/undergraduates around 1990 would never have conformed to compulsory lockdowns and vaccination by a Tory government.

Why?

450501 ▶▶▶ Maverick, replying to Fingerache Philip, 6, #1185 of 1267 🔗

We have achieved a great deal since the launch of the Brexit Party in April 2019. None of this would have been possible without your extraordinary and rapid call to arms. Following our launch in April 2019, I watched the £25 donations coming through online every other second and was humbled by it.

After a quarter of a century building UKIP up into a national political force, without which a Referendum would never have been granted, I never thought that I would need to start a new party from scratch. But thank goodness I did because we handsomely won the European Elections and got rid of Mrs. May as Prime Minister.

In the months that followed, the Brexit Party was topping the opinion polls and this guaranteed that the Conservative Party would come to its senses. They selected Boris Johnson as the next Prime Minister with a more positive, pro-Brexit message.

The final outcome has cut off Northern Ireland from the rest of the UK and treated our fisherman terribly, but we are out and there is no going back. Already, in terms of the vaccine rollout and trade deals around the world, we are seeing the benefits of Brexit and the EU itself turn into a laughing stock.

The change of name to Reform UK was logical. After all, the Brexit Party had campaigned under the slogan of “Change Politics For Good”. From our electoral system, postal voting, House of Lords and taxation policy there is so much that needs to be brought into the 21st century. Not to mention the civil service, BBC license fee and much more besides.

As the elections in May now look likely to be taking place, I’ve been reflecting on my role and my life over the course of the next few years.

Whilst I was always interested in current affairs, I had never intended to be directly involved in politics. I did so for one overwhelming reason; Britain’s membership of the European Union. I had watched the Tory rebels during the Maastricht Rebellion doing their best but, in the end, submitting to party loyalty. I realised that someone had to take up the fight.

It has not been an easy journey and has come at a great cost to me, but I have no regrets whatsoever. Whilst I do strongly believe in the Reform agenda, I now feel I can do just as much to shift public opinion through media and social media as I can as a campaigning party leader.

With the May elections now looming, I intend to stand aside as leader of Reform UK and relinquish any executive power within the party.

I am delighted to take up a position as Honorary President and will leave Reform UK in the capable hands of Richard Tice, who so ably assisted me in the construction and the running of the Brexit Party. Reform will need to democratise itself and set up a national structure. It is no easy task and I wish Richard well in this huge endeavour.

My thanks go to the countless thousands who helped me with the Brexit campaign over the decades and to the many millions that changed the course of history forever.

Probably a good thing for several reasons:

First, Tice has been much better than Farage on lockdown

Second, if alliances or mergers with other right of centre anti-lockdown parties are needed, Farage being out of the way is probably a good thing. Farage was never able to play second fiddle to anyone for long.

450524 ▶▶▶ Maverick, replying to Mark, 4, #1189 of 1267 🔗

Been out and about today, first the market for veg where mask level about 30% outside. Next Specsavers no questions asked and only one uncomfortable staff member who swerved away, but they were north of 20 stone so maybe feeling vulnerable. I’ll give them 8/10.
Then Tesco, bloody horrible. Wall to wall masks and queues. But friendly chat with lady on promotions stand .
Finally good walk along sea front, only 2masked loonies, kiosk open and no worries about antisocial distancing. No coppers anywhere either.
Good day overall except Tesco hell, should have walked to Aldi.

Here’s an interesting comment from that article

Good to see these protests slowly spreading across Europe, and attended by people of all ages (and mostly native-born judging from the photos). It’s about time. I’ve just heard on our news that the police in the southern Belgian province of Liege have submitted an official protest at having to impose Covid restrictions that they describe as depriving people of their civil liberties. Officers are saying this isn’t what they signed up for. All the more astonishing given that even in normal times Belgium is a near-police-state!

450650 ▶▶▶▶ Rowan, replying to isobar, #1208 of 1267 🔗

That sounds like a bit of a cop out. The Covid event has always been about vaccines and the vaccines have always been about depopulation. You don’t need digital passports when you’ve got rid of the people who would have used them.

450647 ▶▶▶ Rowan, replying to DanClarke, #1209 of 1267 🔗

It is the latter. The vaccines seem to be purposely lethal and as such they cannot afford to leave a large section of the public unvaccinated. If only the jabbed were to start dropping like flies, it would all become too obvious and could well lead to trouble. So things are going to become very tough for vaccination refuseniks, but there is no other viable option.

450540 ▶▶ Cranmer, replying to nowhereman, 2, #1210 of 1267 🔗

My guess is that private businesses are pushing vax passports because they think it will encourage people to get out and about and help their businesses survive, not because they have any particular agenda.

450544 ▶▶ Cumbriacracked, replying to nowhereman, 3, #1211 of 1267 🔗

If merely getting the “vaccine” was the government’s way of convincing people it’s safe to come out now and we should re-open fully and without restrictions, that’s what would be happening. The narrative would change, the war would be declared won, and back to normal we’d go. But that’s clearly not what is happening and the medical apartheid that is being ushered in is all about digital IDs and total control.

Feeling the same as you both. Am almost sure I will lose at least one friend who will probably not see me if I don’t get the jab. Thankfully my husband is equally sceptical and we have some friends who will see and act normally around us, though they are not what I’d call sceptics. I avoid making comments when they talk about the “vaccine” getting us back to normal, but if anyone preaches medical apartheid in my presence I can’t take responsibility for what I might say or do.

Friends, who are of a mind to get the jab, should be directed to the linked Alex Jones video. Alex is not everyone’s cup of tea, but this is a very important interview with long time campaigner Dr Sherri Tenpenny. She keeps Alex well under control throughout and it becomes gripping stuff.

The interview starts at 50 mins and finishes at about the 1hr 25 mins mark. It is highly informative, though some might find it quite shocking towards the end. For my money, Dr Tenpenny is bang on target.

If a person is vaccinated against COVID-19, will they still be able to spread the virus to susceptible people?

An ideal vaccine will stop everyone from carrying the infection as well as protecting them from becoming seriously ill. It is currently unclear whether the vaccine only protects against symptomatic and severe disease, or if it can also stop all infection, including asymptomatic infection (i.e. showing no symptoms).

If the vaccine is only able to stop the symptoms of the disease, but unable to stop the virus from infecting us and reproducing, then the virus may still be able to be spread.

And people are fighting to get to the front of the queue for the letha.. ah the vaccine..(that has not been tested properly) because they believe they will permitted to travel again.

Just got round to reading this BBC article on schools going back:

Covid-19: Is school mask and testing policy flawed?
This particular paragraph regarding mask wearing in schools caught my eye:

But it is a risk ministers seem happy to tackle. The government insists the use of masks is “temporary and precautionary” – and will be reviewed at Easter. Or, in the words of one scientific adviser: “We know it’s not going to make much difference, but if it helps us get schools back, it’s worth the hassle when it’s dropped.”

This was the same argument they used for mandating masks as it would help people come out of lockdown and feel safer out and about in shops and stores.

Nearly a year later and they’re still mandatory.

450658 ▶▶ OKUK, replying to Nobody2021, 4, #1264 of 1267 🔗
