Good morrning!

Good to see, contrary to some fears, we still have the BTL comments section.

ATL has become just a regurgitation of numerous MSM articles.

Yes indeed.

By contrast, ghastly people like the Head of NHS Providers are on large salaries. His tweets are nauseating.

XR also operate a lot of volunteer activism – as do cancel culture vultures.
I don’t see that there has to be any personal praise or blame in addressing the nature of the content ATL.
Birds of a feather flock together. So in my view the positioning IN the establishment MUST operate some form of captured opposition because it cannot and will not raise to question anything that seriously threatens its own protected status.

I may also add that it is inconceivable to me that any such movement of dissent or critical challenge to a narrative dictate leveraging global economic, social and biological structure would not be closely watched and nudged, including infiltrations or disinformational engagement.

My own responsibility is my discernment of truth, not judgement of the personae involved.
I’m happy to offer my own perspectives BTL as I feel moved. Very few want, care for or understand ‘original stuff’. They want ammo and reinforcement for their currently active sense of self and world.

Asking questions for presumed facts or ‘settled’ science seems original because it is alive rather than groupthink. Asking reasoned questions of the very root premise of these shenanigans is met by aggressive denials and ad-hom put-down. It seems safer to attack side effects in the long grass or even main issues in the frame of unquestioned (unquestionable) narrative assertions – such as the claim of a deadly contagious pandemic.

The bandwagon effect means that once the bait is taken, the reactions run their course. But it is the ‘defences’ we suffer – not the imagined or modelled fears given funding, energy and attention.

‘Post truth’ runs the cynical observation that stories and lies operate the human social identity. This can ONLY operate a destructive ‘Economy’ (sic), society and future (?).

There is no love in it, no joy or peace, no true life shared.
Who thinks these qualities are mere illusion has yet to wake to the account of their denial and loss.

Love of truth is the basis for ‘workability’. Life and Universe are predicted to ‘work’ as an integral coherence but human ignorance and arrogance thinks to possess and control as if a thing set over and apart. Like a mind-virus of hijack and replication of distance, lockdown and masking off from Life.

Yeah that’s really odd. So those women who used the wear the niqab would just switch to face masks instead.

452064 ▶▶ Cheshirecatslave, replying to Lucan Grey, 23, #25 of 930 🔗

I always opposed banning veils as I think people should be free to choose. I oppose masks for the same reason.

452184 ▶▶▶ GCarty80, replying to Cheshirecatslave, 3, #26 of 930 🔗

I think you mean “I oppose mask mandates for the same reason”.

452207 ▶▶▶▶ JanMasarykMunich, replying to GCarty80, 5, #27 of 930 🔗

It is clear from the comments sections in the Swiss press that at least some people voted in favour ‘tactically’ (and maybe symbolically) against mask mandates, and not in favour of any ban on hiqabs. Probably, enough to have swung a fairly close result.

The wording of the people’s initiative (as opposed to a referendum, which are called to oppose an already proposed law) was specifically to ban covering one’s face (Verhulling). As this will now have to be written into the constitution, some are hoping that this will make it more difficult to impose any future long-term mask mandate. Whether they are right or not, remains to be seen. And hopefully, no one wants to impose a long-term mask mandate anyway.

To be clear, I am absolutely against telling people what they should or should not wear, hiqabs or muzzles. Much better to live and let live, but that is not where we seem to be.

452384 ▶▶▶▶▶ GCarty80, replying to JanMasarykMunich, #28 of 930 🔗

No such word as “hiqab”.

The Muslim face veil is “niqab”, while “hijab” strictly speaking refers to the Islamic modest dress code in general, but is often loosely used to refer to a scarf covering the hair and neck but not the face.

452397 ▶▶▶▶▶▶ JanMasarykMunich, replying to GCarty80, 1, #29 of 930 🔗

Sorry, Thanks for correction.

452472 ▶▶▶ Crystal Decanter, replying to Cheshirecatslave, 4, #30 of 930 🔗

Some people are butt ugly tho and the mask can be a blessing

452682 ▶▶▶ Edward, replying to Cheshirecatslave, #31 of 930 🔗

Agreed. I don’t like seeing women with their faces covered for religious reasons, but it’s their choice up to a point, though probably truer to say that it’s imposed by the culture to which they belong. Just because I don’t like something doesn’t mean that I think it should be banned.

452052 Liewe, replying to Liewe, 23, #32 of 930 🔗

On the vaccination/passport: This kind of system will create global divisions between developed and undeveloped countries as roll out of vaccines is very slow in countries which don’t have magic money trees. These countries will also not be able to keep up with the chronic re-vaccination/testing needed to satisfy the Nanny states. I suppose it is one way of building a wall.

452062 ▶▶ Lisa (formerly) from Toronto, replying to Liewe, 72, #33 of 930 🔗

Of course you are right that this notion of vaccine passports will create divisions and perhaps it’s a feature rather than a bug. Children, pregnant women, people from developing countries, and of course those of us who for whatever reason will refuse it will all be marginalized.

The vaccine passport is medical apartheid and I will call it that every single time, just as I refer to the experimental gene therapy and refuse to call it a “vaccine.” Words matter, and if it makes people cringe to hear this harsh terminology then I say GOOD. Let’s not tread lightly around people who are advocating for this and let’s ask them point blank whether they are in favour of medical apartheid. They need to own it and I want to hear them say the words.

452063 ▶▶ SilentP, replying to Liewe, 23, #34 of 930 🔗

There was a discussion on here yesterday about the most appropriate terminology to adopt for the so-called ‘vaccine passports’.

For me, the best suggestions were Coronavirus Compliance Permit or simply Compliance Permit

452068 ▶▶▶ Annie, replying to SilentP, 5, #35 of 930 🔗

Or The Grovel?

452084 ▶▶▶ Les Tricoteuses, replying to SilentP, 20, #36 of 930 🔗

Agree with Lisa, the harsher the better. Medical apartheid papers? Eugenics compliance pass? Pro Forma death certificate?
As for the experimental jab, I always use unlicensed in my description as many people think that it is.

452099 ▶▶▶ PastImperfect, replying to SilentP, 9, #37 of 930 🔗

Someone suggested something like Apartheid Pass yesterday.

452438 ▶▶▶▶ Dobba, replying to PastImperfect, 2, #38 of 930 🔗

Think that was me, Apratheid Pass/Permit/Papers. No point sugar coating it. 🙂

452122 ▶▶▶ SilentP, replying to SilentP, 1, #39 of 930 🔗

I did not copy my original post from yesterday onto here. Was looking for a term that could be generally adopted by LS and others – with appropriate negative connotations but deliberately not so provocative that it only asks to be criticised

452201 ▶▶▶ crimsonpirate, replying to SilentP, 6, #40 of 930 🔗

If I have to carry a vaccine passport I will wear a badge stating something like “HIV status is private”.

452179 ▶▶ BeBopRockSteady, replying to Liewe, 6, #41 of 930 🔗

Good point. They expect mass migration due to climate change, so maybe this is a way of setting up infrastructure to control it.

452385 ▶▶▶ GCarty80, replying to BeBopRockSteady, 5, #42 of 930 🔗

Would a desire to end international tourism (and thus the CO2 emissions associated with mass air travel) be a likely unspoken motivation for the zero covid gang?

452478 ▶▶▶▶ Bigade, replying to GCarty80, 6, #43 of 930 🔗

I don’t think many people realise yet that they’ve already had their last international holiday. The airlines have probably got the message though – they’ve gone ominously quiet haven’t they?

452552 ▶▶▶▶ Bart Simpson, replying to GCarty80, 4, #44 of 930 🔗

Many people have long wanted a return to the bad old days when international travel was only for the mega rich, politicians, royals and celebs. The green issue was a smokescreen.

It’s also to put us plebs back in our place.

452230 ▶▶ SweetBabyCheeses, replying to Liewe, 5, #45 of 930 🔗

Hopefully it means that those of us who don’t want the vaccine can go on holiday to those countries that don’t have the vaccine?
Any country that relies on tourism is going to have to think of a way of attracting visitors back!

452476 ▶▶▶ Crystal Decanter, replying to SweetBabyCheeses, 3, #46 of 930 🔗

I think the problem will be getting on a plane – not the destination

452699 ▶▶▶▶ maggie may, replying to Crystal Decanter, 1, #47 of 930 🔗

Maybe the countries that have national airlines will be okay if their governments tell them to allow unvaccinated travellers?

452053 Allen, replying to Allen, 116, #48 of 930 🔗

Step One- Understand who the “They” is.

Step Two- Understand their motives.

There is not now nor has there ever been an epidemiological or viral emergency event of
any sort anywhere in the world in the year 2020.

The manufactured perception that there was such an event is an artifact of mass media manipulation, behavioral conditioning techniques and social engineering. All of this made possible through institutional programming and accelerated media messaging disallowing basic cognitive processes and eliminating critical thinking possibilities.

What we are in the midst of is a planned total economic collapse. This economic collapse was inevitable, Western governments are putting the security infrastructure into place, trying to proactively control the inevitable social disorder which will result from this collapse. To be followed by a global financial reset, after a period of hyperinflation, which destroys both the value of debt and the corresponding paper claims.

The collapse started in 2008 and attempts to salvage this corrupt economic system only delayed the inevitable. In the Fall of 2019 the crisis began to rapidly unravel again.

There was a dramatic decrease in industrial production which showed up in the banking crisis of August of 2019- the so-called Repo crisis when suddenly banks started to refuse US sovereign debt instruments as collateral of overnight loans forcing the Federal Reserve to step in and basically print money to cover this massive shortage.

The Repo market is where banks borrow money each day so that they have 10% liquid assets at the end of each day. If they do not have 10% liquid assets they are not allowed to open the next day. Around the middle of September the Fed started pumping $20 billion per day into the Repo market to keep interest rates down so banks could borrow the money to stay in business. By the end of December the Fed was pumping over $100 billion per day into the Repo market and it was not enough.

Simply everyone on Wall Street was loaded with enormous debt and was holding on to US cash to be able to service it refusing to finance purchases of foreign currencies and then US currency as Repo Market froze at 10% interest on overnight Repo loans as US treasury bonds and even US bills were rejected as collateral for Repos.

In fact what happen in March 2020 was just the spread of the liquidity crisis from primary dealers markets (TBTF banks and Hedge funds were actually bailed out in September) toward all other stock, commodities, bonds CLOs, MBS etc, as well to Ponzi schemes called today ETF funds, not to mention structured derivative products traded on proprietary platforms nominally representing up to several thousands of $$$ trillions.

When US treasury bonds and even USTB became illiquid due to exponential growth of public (but most of all private) dollar debt while the FED was sucking up cash from financial markets by tempering QE (called QT ) between 2017 and 2019 reduced FED balance sheet from over $5 T to $3.9T by selling assets, all hell broke loose. Something drastic had to be done.

And hence the FED started to “buy all worthless shit for double the price”, Gates’s and Silicon Valley oligarchic gang took over the media, and Orwellian shrinks and doctor Fauci-Mengeles came to the “rescue” unleashing operation COVID.

COVID phenomenon cannot be understood without understanding the un-televised 2019-2020 unprecedented financial collapse threatening the entire global financial system. The COVID fraud timing became necessary as the world markets were faced with an emergency debt crisis that popped up in formerly mostly liquid markets: Repo markets, money markets and FX markets.

The entire House of Cards was falling for six months and could not be stopped so COVID hysteria was manufactured to cover up what amounts today to $11 trillion of FED bailout in cash, stock boost via POMO and guarantees of value of collateral used in structured derivatives.

The end game is that the central banks (Fed) will buy all the toxic, worthless debt from the hedge funds and banks, including the 1.5 quad trillion of derivatives, and then transfer the debt to the treasury as sovereign debt. Then print money to infinity to service the fictitious debt to sink the dollar via hyperinflation and then foreclose on the US and everyone else holding debt in worthless dollars.

That’s the coup.There will be global hyperinflation to vaporize the assets of the masses and the states. As soon as the ruling class mops up the last properties. What this means is the ruling class have limitless claims on everything in the world.

These governments know full well that “Covid” is being used as cover for crashing the economies in the Western world. There is not now and never has been a “pandemic”- that is all Kabuki theater to disguise the reality of the rapid economic decline brought on by the Ponzi Schemes of financial institutions over the the past few decades.

452058 ▶▶ Hugh_Manity, replying to Allen, 21, #49 of 930 🔗

People must understand that around 97% of all money is created out of thin air. This is unsustainable, especially given the eye-watering amounts governments are continually spending. I agree, collapse is inevitable. Even the BBC now admit this.

452124 ▶▶▶ NickR, replying to Hugh_Manity, 16, #50 of 930 🔗

All money has always been created out of thin air. Gold is only of value because you believe it’s of value, in the same way a £ is only worth value if you believe it has a value. It’s not money that loses intrinsic value it’s belief by people like us in that value.

452155 ▶▶▶▶ Basileus, replying to NickR, 10, #51 of 930 🔗

Surely there is more to it than that. Real wealth consists of items and technologies which deliver better standards of living. This wealth can be represented by tokens, ie money, but the money is always just a token of wealth. This is simplistic, but it is an attempt to develop the discussion.

452231 ▶▶▶▶▶ Sandra Barwick, replying to Basileus, 1, #52 of 930 🔗

The site can’t afford subs. It still does better than the Guardian on literals.

452694 ▶▶▶▶▶ Edward, replying to Basileus, #53 of 930 🔗

Money or currency is several related things. I used to make that point in the debate about the euro. It’s a medium of exchange (more convenient and flexible than barter, such as “I’ll fix your plumbing and you can give me some vegetables from your garden”), a store of value (because it gives me options to exchange it for whatever I may want in the future), and at the state level it’s an instrument of economic policy (aiming to achieve desired outcomes by adjusting the supply of money). When I was about 10 years old I discussed with a pal “Why doesn’t the government just print lots of pound notes, then we’d all be rich?” The example of Weimar Germany and others shows the flaw in that argument.

452357 ▶▶▶ rockoman, replying to Suet, 4, #62 of 930 🔗

452516 ▶▶▶ Crystal Decanter, replying to Suet, 1, #63 of 930 🔗

China + Russia have been buying gold like mad since 2008

452648 ▶▶▶ Allen, replying to Suet, 3, #64 of 930 🔗

The Chinese did not kick it all off. That is a fiction of certain factions of the Western controlled media. Look again at the timeline of how this began dating back to Fall 2019. This isn’t to say that China did not have a role but it is nominal.

Understand that a US $ crash would weaken both US foreign policy and Chinese finances. US and China’s interests are currently entirely aligned. If Europeans were more clever they would not have adopted lockdowns. The EU is run by sold out bureaucrats who are unable to think let alone save the EU if that’s their intent- which it isn’t.

China owns more, some say much more than 1 TRILLION $$ in US Treasury Bonds. China also wants to save the $. That’s why China has worked in lockstep with Wall Street to help facilitate a pandemic response to distract from the debt crisis of $ and allow massive amounts of further $ QE.

Every Western War, every pandemic response, in the West, is about one thing only: saving the $.

The emperor has no clothes but they don’t want us to see this as we would rise up against them. So, just before the collapse, they rise up against us but we are unawares. We’re like children in school not knowing that the teachers have suddenly changed into psycho killers.

Why are they doing it? To save the $ by rebranding it as the Federal Reserve backed digital $.

Digital currency reset. Hyper inflation is a few months away and many people will lose most if not all of their pensions and savings. After mass civil unrest and looting, people will be begging for a new currency. That is why this scamdemic was hatched.

That is if this allowed to go on.

Brilliant and the clearest explanation of the nonsense going on. I never thought that ‘covid’ was anything more than seasonal flu but what about the vaccines roll-out and the billions spent on them? Are they just saline solution or is this an opportunistic attempt to trial real mRNA jabs on an unsuspecting public? If the latter is the case, they will never let this come out because of the massive civil unrest that would ensue so it has to be repackaged as a totalitarian takeover. And talking of the billionaires hoovering up the world’s assets, would their combined wealth save the banking system? What can we do – are we inevitably going to lose our homes / property or will we be ‘allowed’ to live in them till we die?

452340 ▶▶▶ Bigade, replying to jos, 5, #69 of 930 🔗

That’s seemingly where the UBI comes in – you will be bailed out, but in return you will give up all you own.

452367 ▶▶▶▶ jos, replying to Bigade, 8, #70 of 930 🔗

But ‘give up’ in what sense? There are enough homes in this country for everyone to continue living where they live and all homeless people to be housed in the unoccupied homes kept empty by the uber rich so presumably the easiest thing would be to let people go on living where they already are? I just want to understand the ‘banality of evil’ as in what the world for us serfs will actually look like. This crap about ‘You will own nothing- you’ll hire stuff’ doesn’t make sense if you already own stuff and don’t need anything but food.

452392 ▶▶▶▶▶ Bigade, replying to jos, 4, #71 of 930 🔗

If you’re wiped out financially, whether you own your home or not, if your pension or income or whatever disappears, then what do you live on? UBI. Paid in credits presumably. But in return you forfeit your ownership rights to whereever you live. You may still be allowed to live in it, but no longer own it…..

452054 Apache, replying to Apache, 20, #75 of 930 🔗

I wonder if my recent experience is anything to go by whether there is going to be an almighty mess when it comes to second ‘jabs’.

I received an invitation on 20 Feb to arrange an appointment for the jab. Yesterday the NHS website was offering appointments 3 weeks hence 52 miles from my home. The second jab was available at the same site or nearer sometime in June. I must have accepted these but it allowed me to make the booking without inputting any contact details. I neglected to note the booking reference. I am unable to cancel or change these appointments without the reference. 119 must have access to exactly the same website as they can do nothing without the reference. Their suggestion was to allow the booking to pass and to rebook.

Anecdotally my wife’s colleagues have been to the same centre on different dates and received both Pfizer and AZ. How will they ever co-ordinate the 2nd jab to be the same brand when the availability changes on a daily basis. This will get even worse when Moderna is available. Another example of it all not being how it seems in Hancock’s world.

452057 ▶▶ awildgoose, replying to Apache, 6, #76 of 930 🔗

This will get even worse when Moderna is available.

But what about all the variants?

I mean, we can’t expect the bog standard vax to cover all the freaky, exotic variants from SA, Brazil, and Kent, can we?

452166 ▶▶ stalfie, replying to Apache, 10, #77 of 930 🔗

I have several old uni pals, recently retired dentists ,doing unpaid voluntary vax at different centres around the country. They all report lots of no-shows and tipping leftover vials away each day. There is little effort to recruit walk-ins. Yet my friends in Greece tell me there, police are offered the unused doses each day.
The NHS has ever been a wasteful unjoined up juggernaut. If there was a sticker on each box of vax with the cost to the NHS on it , perhaps the admins might make more effort to not waste resources.

Perhaps I’m tired as it’s late here, but does Guy de la Bedoyere not claim his position on vaccine passports has been mischaracterized and then go on to argue that they may be the only way to end government overreach? And how is it he has no opinion and is neither for nor against? This is not an issue about which one can be wishy washy — maybe the Nuremberg Code only applies sometimes? He seems more offended by being challenged by an “anonymous academic” than by the notion of forced medical experimentation.

I found it very patronizing coming from someone who has chosen to become a human guinea pig (which is his right) to tell the rest of us to calm down and not get our knickers in a knot until vaccine passports become a reality. They’re right around the corner FFS.

I caught it in December 2019 whilst working with some researchers who had just arrived from China. Thought at the time -ooh this is a weird virus, never had anything like this before. Symptoms were as described (dry cough in throat, mild fever, headache, loss of taste and smell) but much milder than many common colds I have experienced in the past – apart from half a day spent sitting down reading I carried on working through it – as did the other researchers!

It made my child extremely ragingly sick for 2 miserable days, with the sort of classic symptoms that would have a modern day patent rushing out from some antibiotics. The rest of us got the sniffles, and then I got long covid before 2019 was even over. (Didn’t know what any of it was at that time).

Dragged on for months (breathlessness, tachycardia, pleurisy type pains, night sweats, hair loss on a massive scale), and I gained so much weight as it made me very insulin resistant. BUT I swear I have emerged healthier from it. And now I have a handy early warning system when new strains are circulating. I get a couple of night sweats, a pain in my ribs, spot of breathlessness and some deep tiredness, and I know I’ll be hearing about a new strain soon. And we do!!!

The cure? Lysine and Quercetin and it fixed within 48 hours. This is in no way comparable to glandular fever or childbirth for devastation.

Very interesting that you too are reporting a reaction to subsequent Covid infections that can be felt, but are fought off. Me too, and a friend who had it in December. I had it in March, then a few months later I had malaise – typical”Oh, I’m going down with something” feelings, then overwhelming tiredness, so that I had to go to bed in day time – I never do that. Slept for 18 hours then fine. I now know that mounting an antibody response is very tiring, taxing for the body, and obviously that would increase with age. But good to know the body is updating its immune defences. Keep hugging.

I just found a petition about pledging to get a covid vaccine in my email.

Safe. Effective. Live-saving. These words all describe the COVID-19 vaccine, now available in a variety of different forms and slowly being offered to people in the U.S. and throughout the world. It’s not an overstatement to say this vaccine will change the entire fate of the world, by saving hundreds of thousands of human lives — if not millions. Despite this irrefutable fact, some people are refusing to get the vaccine. In doing so, they’re endangering their entire communities by continuing to let the deadly coronavirus run rampant and claim lives.
Not 1 single person has died as a result of taking these vaccines. Meanwhile, more than 515,203 people in the United States and 2,538,681 worldwide have perished from this contagious disease as of Tuesday, March 2, 202

I think saying Not 1 single person has died as a result of taking these vaccines is being economical with the truth not to mention it is not proven to prevent transmission and if it works what others do shouldn’t matter.

And why should you pledge to undergo any medical procedure? Either you want/need it or you don’t. I am awaiting more study results before deciding. The email has been deleted.

No surprise that the media are “forgetting to tell the whole story but would have expected better here.

The headline figures are just wrong. NHS staff pay will not be going up by just 1% because the national figure is on top of staff’s progress within their pay band.

 The three-year pay deal struck in 2018 gave over 1 million staff a pay rise of at least 6.5%, and some as much as 29%. A nurse with a year’s experience would have seen their pay go up 21% over three years.

452205 ▶▶▶ John, replying to Lindy, 4, #128 of 930 🔗

That’s true to some extent. The people who benefited from the 2018 deal were those in the lower bands on agenda for change, particularly those at the top of their band.
For a band 5 registered nurse at the top of their band can find that nurses with less experience are getting paid the same. The only way for the top of band issue to be solved is if the person is moved into band 6. However, there is an issue within some hospitals and that is favouritism/nepotism/face fits; it doesn’t matter how good you are at your job if your face don’t fit you aren’t going anywhere.

452222 ▶▶ Boris Bullshit, replying to Annie, 10, #129 of 930 🔗

To say they have had nothing is still not conveying the true nature of it. Vast numbers of people have had a NEGATIVE pay rise as their incomes collapsed. They also do not receive generous sick pay, annual leave and gold plated pension provision.

The problem is that NHS staff are starting to believe all the religious adulation about them. If you keep telling people they are heroes they start to believe it and demand commensurate remuneration.

I would support a decent pay rise for those at the lower end of the NHS pay scale and a fair one for the rest around what they have been offered. Its tempting to say what they love to often say to others…… ‘don’t you know there is a pandemic on’!

452229 ▶▶ TJS123, replying to Annie, 6, #130 of 930 🔗

I wish people would stop misrepresenting what the last few years pay changes have meant for the NHS ( all NHS workers by the way, not just nurses). Not doctors though. The same scrutiny should be applied as we apply to everything Boris says. The new pay system, if anyone bothers to check, has actually removed the annual pay progression which meant each payscale was divided into 4 or 5 incremental steps. Now, staff stay on level pay for about 5 years, then, depending on how well they please the management, there is one increment they might get, to a level which they stay on till they die or get promoted to another job. No nurse got anywhere near 29%, this was a headline figure caused by the removal of Band 1 because it was under the minimum wage. Most people averaged 6% over the entire 5 year period, not 6% per year. I’m very disappointed at the lack of research from the LS community on this. We need to be robust and accurate and not just follow the general anti-NHS feeling when the facts don’t back it up.

452415 ▶▶ TyRade, replying to Annie, 4, #131 of 930 🔗

here’s a self-funding solution to the deserving NHS heroes’ pay demand – cut teachers’ pay and give the dancing heroes a bung! There are around 1.1 million ‘front line’ NHS, average wage £27,000. So wage bill almost £30 billion. 10% – generous? – of that is say £3 billion. Now, there are 550,000 teachers in the UK, who, on average earn £31,000 and on average have been sitting on their ar$es for over a year. Their wage bill is around £17 billion.Finding the 10% NHS frontline ransom out of teachers’ pockets would require an 18% teachers’ wage cut.

452078 Laurence, replying to Laurence, 96, #147 of 930 🔗

On 19 March 2020, I wrote the following:

“Call me when you are around. I’ll run you through my numbers. I thought I was going mad but it’s good to see there’s someone else out there who can add up. Did you write this or do you know who did ? Estimate of no of people in uk under 60 who would die if nothing were ever done: 4500”

Further points to be discussed on the call were that the overall death toll from COVID would be no more than 0.2% of the population (at an extremely pessimistic view), around 135,000 people, but more likely to be half that.

This was based on an evening’s analysis of the information available at the time, and was self-evident to anyone reasonably numerate who bothered to look at it.

Since then, according to the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries, there were 54,600 excess deaths in England and Wales over the period from the start of the pandemic (taken as 14 March) to 1 January 2021, just under 0.1% of the population. Of those, around 5,000 were under 60.

So the death toll was predictable from the beginning, and actually predicted.

I have heard many times, and dare I say from many people who should know better, that the deaths would have been far higher in the absence of a lockdown. Well, the onus of evidence is on them – I haven’t seen figures over 0.2% of excess deaths anywhere in the world, and that includes the few countries and states that adopted sensible policies towards the pandemic, such as (famously) Sweden and 10 US states including Florida. In fact Sweden lost 1% more people in total  in 2020 than 2017 (after adjusting for the age and size of the population) and 2.3% more than in 2018 (2019 was the outlier – a particularly benign year there as in the UK). Over the whole pandemic up to 17 February 2021 the Swedes lost 418 people under 60 with COVID. Anders Tegnell is a great asset to humanity and should be celebrated.

So what are the effects in the real world of the above figures. Let’s start with the worst affected group, the over 90s. They had a 1 in 46 chance of dying from COVID last year compared to a 1 in 4.6 chance of dying of any cause in any year. So, looked at another way, for the sake of a 2% chance of dying they were forced to give up all the meaning and love in their life for around a quarter of the rest of their remaining days. For younger people, the cost/ benefit was even more skewed and for the under 50s and in particular the under 30s the policy decision to lock down by Boris and his complicit ‘scientists’ is so unbalanced that it can only be described as obscene.

It is surely a sign of a very sick society that it prioritises the lives of a few very elderly sick people over those of millions of children and young adults, especially when these same old people were released by the NHS into nursing homes to infect and kill further elderly people.

And the effect of this lockdown was not felt by the middle age, middle class, middle/ high income professional policy makers and advisers who could comfortably continue with their lives in their large houses with gardens in the suburbs of London; no, they were felt by young families in tower blocks  where both parents were thrown out of their jobs in hospitality or retail or furloughed, and they have no money, no outdoor space, not even laptops for their kids to do remote learning (if that is even an option).

And why ? Again, to protect a few elderly people most of whom died anyway.

Serious times call for serious people. We have a prime minister who excels at writing fascinating copy about bendy bananas or prawn cocktail crisps, but is clearly lacking when it comes to analysing the data and controlling his self-serving advisers who clearly cannot grasp even the most basic numerical concepts. When will they and their serially incompetent US equivalent Dr Fauci admit they got it wrong and tell Boris and Biden to let us out of this horrendous house imprisonment ? What has been clear for the past year to me and to many on this site, should have been abundantly clear to those advisers with the huge resources of their universities or even their country.

We need to scrap these ridiculous restrictions as soon as possible, and life must return to normal.

Unfortunately Guy when you took the jab you moved passports ever closer. The system will only work if 80% of the adult population complies, therefore your surrender moves us ever closer to their introduction. The ‘nudge’ worked.

I agree. Of course it’s a personal choice and not for me to judge anyone but many are taking these jabs already and primarily for travel. In case anyone hasn’t noticed you can’t go anywhere right now and the goalposts will keep changing when the timing is convenient. So why not hold back a bit longer if you feel pressurised on this aspect and I realise it may be due to family overseas or work. Holding back increases the chances of this not happening, it can’t work if not enough people won’t be injected. And it won’t stop at one injection. It will be continuous and unless you are upto date you still won’t be able to travel. What will the continuous injection of harmful toxic rubbish do to even a healthy person’s immune system?

This is exactly what I am doing. I won’t have these newer types of vaccines as I honestly feel they will be dangerous in the longer term. I do however need to fly regularly abroad for family reasons + I have a small home abroad I need to go to. But I’m waiting. The Novavax may change my mind – it’s a traditional type of vaccine I believe but not available yet? – or a nasal spray. However I don’t need any of them for health reasons. And I certainly don’t want vaccine passports. So I’m waiting to see what happens. Meanwhile my own immune system is just fine, helped by vitamin D, C, zinc and iodine.

452262 ▶▶▶ Sandra Barwick, replying to Suzyv, 8, #157 of 930 🔗

They are unable to say that as flu has been conflated with SARS-CoV-2. CoViD19 symptoms now include those for pretty much all upper respiratory tract infections. There’s no satisfactory differential diagnoses, if the symptom pattern matches CoViD19 then that is the diagnosis of choice, no alternatives are considered. Because people get tested because they have this “diagnosis” and the (somewhat discredited) RT-PCR is still considered the gold standard, the original diagnosis will be confirmed.
Have other respiratory infections disappeared? Almost certainly not.

“The evidence of the efficacy of the death-jabs, just keeps piling up.

The latest data, which runs up to February 19 and was published on February 22, reveals a plethora of debilitating side-effects, but this has not alarmed officials at the MHRA who maintain that “no other new safety concerns have been identified from reports received to date.” They conclude from this that the “overall safety experience with both vaccines is so far as expected from the clinical trials.”

The regulator doubled down on supporting the jabs, stating that the “expected benefits of the vaccines in preventing COVID-19 and serious complications associated with COVID-19 far outweigh any currently known side effects,” including deafness, blindness, and death.

The MHRA justified this position by citing the passively analytical nature of recordings on the Yellow Card scheme: It is a self-reporting system. This means that none of the serious injuries, or even the deaths, are confirmed by a licensed doctor, giving the MHRA some leeway to declare that “the available evidence does not currently suggest that the vaccine caused the event.” Rather, the MHRA favors use of the term “temporally-related” to describe the succession of adverse events from injection with the vaccine, which they describe as “events occurring following vaccination but may or may not be caused by the vaccine.”

Absolutely Lisa. Seems to me just as good a reason for feeling so bad is that your body is rejecting the ‘vaccine’. I have a friend who had the jab on Friday, the AZ one. I thought it was a bad idea and said so as she has early stage MS and is also bi-polar so on lots of meds but she was ‘advised’ it would be better to have the jab as she could be very ill if she got covid.

She has felt dreadful since Saturday, stayed in bed a lot of the time, couldn’t go to work so lost her pay for that day (being self-employed). She managed a walk yesterday with the dogs but she’s feeling bad again today, said she just fell over this morning, feeling sick etc.

She is really shocked at the reaction she’s had, definitely not wanting to have a second one. i really worry about what might happen if she is exposed to it again in the autumn.

Another friend who has ME was in bed for 2 days after having the jab. I think both ME and MS are immune system problems so seems quite crazy that they should both have had this ‘vaccine’

Thinking about this vaccine business and passports etc. I do feel that some of the pundits and commentators, as with the one in the newsletter above, are approaching this subject on an entirely ethical, philosophical and political stance and are guilty of ignoring the science. In my view, you do not have to be a genius scientist to conclude that these M-RNA potions are very different and new and move the whole vaccine debate into an entirely different area.
If the first vaccines to come out and the ones they were now pushing were the more traditional types, Sinovac and Sinopharm which we are told may come out as nasal sprays, then I feel the whole debate would have been different. I would probably have said that I do not think I need it but just to keep the peace I would have probably had a spray, collected my ticket, like with a Yellow Fever pass and thought no more about it.

But the difference with these M-RNA potions is so enormous so new and so unknown that it puts the issue into a different area of debate. And the fact that they are so keen to push these, even to sectors of the population that do not need them does have sinister undertones. It is almost as if they want to get these dodgy potions into as many people as possible before any other vaccines come out and people demand those instead.

I feel our commentators and pundits have let us down by ignoring the scary science of this new age of ‘ genetic/vaccines/potions’.

Sinovac and Sinopharm are inactivated vaccines, not nasal sprays . Codagenix is the nasal spray. The first two are not likely to be available in the UK and the latter is not likely to come out until 2022.

452308 ▶▶▶ peyrole, replying to arfurmo, 8, #187 of 930 🔗

IF it works, Covi-vac from Codagenix has the virtue of just being a speeded up version of the tried and tested way of vaccination. Being an inhaler, tested on animals and mass produced with Serum of India gives me some confidence it isn’t a ‘Gates-inspired’ monster. Although the BMGF is an indirect investor through Adjuvant Capital, and US Dept of Defense is a direct investor in Codagenix. Its almost impossible to find any bio company that hasn’t got these two as investors now.
The target date for trials/testing , including primates for ’emergency use, is only 48 days according to their site; having 2022 as a date is indicative of a problem or two.
Being resident of France, I am delighted at the snails pace of vaccination and the clear advice that you have to be WILLING to have it. I note that Sanofi are going to produce the Janssen product in France, and have attached the latest FDA note for this product. It can’t be more specific that it is NOT approved or licensed in common with all the others, ‘buyer beware’!

How anyone can claim to be a lockdown sceptic and at the same time say they have an open mind on vaccine passports is beyond me

He says that freedom is not absolute, which is true in so far as things like murder are illegal and most people agree with that

If you argue vaccine passports are justified then IMO exactly the same arguments can be applied to lockdowns

I can just about see some extreme circumstances in which lockdowns and vaccine passports may be justifiable, but they are unlikely to happen in practice but more importantly we have now clearly seen that virtually no government on the planet can be trusted with this power – it has been grossly abused – which is in my view enough to rule out vaccine passports and lockdowns in all cases

452125 ▶▶ Schrodinger, replying to SilentP, 21, #194 of 930 🔗

The possibility of a vaccine causing the a ‘ cytokine storm’ at some stage in the future when the body meets a new wild coronavirus is a possibility. This is one reason why such vaccines normally have long term trials. I touched on the issue in my own blog some weeks ago

http://lizburton.co.uk/wordpress/health/covid-19-vaccine-the-biggest-public-health-disaster-ever/

452346 ▶▶▶ Freecumbria, replying to Schrodinger, 6, #195 of 930 🔗

Geert mentions ADE (antibody dependant enhancement) in the section around 26 mins 33 secs.

He seems to me (a non-expert) to be implying that there is no evidence of ADE so far in that the antibodies in the experimental vaccines are so far neutralising for subsequent SARS-C0V-2 infection. Given that the people in the vaccine trials who subsequently encountered the virus didn’t obviously show ADE affects, that seems reasonable. But he accepts that there is a risk of ADE in the future in that neutralising antibodies become no longer neutralising.

He then talks about something different which is the population issue of allowing immune escape. And at that point those who have vaccine mediated antibodies will have a damaged balance between their innate and adapative immune systems and will be susceptible to encountering the mutated virus.

So this population level issue is detrimental to the unvaccinated also, but at least the balance of their innate and adaptive immune system hasn’t been messed up by the vaccines.

Pathogenic Priming — Another Significant Risk

According to the author, some epitopes can cause “autoimmunological pathogenic priming due to prior infection or following exposure to SARS-CoV-2 … following vaccination.”

In other words, if you’ve had the infection once, and get reinfected (either by SARS-CoV-2 or a sufficiently similar coronavirus), the second bout has a great potential to be more severe than the first. Similarly, if you get vaccinated and are then infected with SARS-CoV-2, your infection may be more severe than had you not been vaccinated.

The unsung villains of Covid are insurance companies. They refused to pay out business interruption cover, which has hugely harmed businesses. They threatened many schools (including boarding schools) into closure by saying they would not cover Covid claims. They have simply refused to honor long standing contracts “because Covid” and defied anyone to sue them.

Because insurance is a legal requirement for so many parts of life, the insurers can just make their own rules separate to the government and impose impossible terms.

It’s shocking, frankly, that insurers have encouraged people for decades to buy all kinds of optional coverage, just in case, but then refuse to pay out obvious claims.

If you don’t, you will have to fund your claim yourself. If an adult doesn’t claim for a death-jab injured child, you may register a claim up to 6 months after your 21st birthday. All those lovely 6’s.

Even then, when the government allowed Pandemrix (swine flu 2009), to be rolled out and it caused narcolepsy, they fought paying compensation under the Vaccine Damage Payments Scheme tooth and nail even though they admitted the vaccine was responsible.

And they won’t cover any liabilty if someone does somehow to trace getting Covid back to a school even if they have measures in place. Because the science is not clear on said measures. They’ll be all too happy to get into the minutae on that one to not pay out.

Bottom line: everyone should sign a waiver or agree to it that they will not hold the school or institution responsible if they end up with lurgy or some sort. Oh wait a minute, we already had that previously.

A piece supporting or at least acquiescing to vaccine passports?

Oh dear. So they’ve spent 12 months arguing against lockdowns, “we never lockdown down in 2018” etc, and yet now it’s different? Now it’s time for a vaccine passports which will not be a vaccine passport of course. It’ll be much more (see Social Credit scheme). This is disheartening to say the least.

We’ve spent the whole year listening to people urging, three weeks to flatten, it’s just a mask, it’s just home school, it’s just temporary.

Vaccine passports are the same. They are not temporary, they are basically pivoting the ‘temporary’ track and trace which has a £32bn budget of which only a fraction has been spent. Why? Because it was never meant to be temporary, it is building a permanent infrastructure under the guise of temporary crisis.

Great link thank you. Vaccine effectiveness is science fiction for the most part. The ‘herd immunity’ destroys the infectious spread, and often the ‘experts’ simply recategorise the disease or rename it. Flu is now Covid for eg. So is pneumonia and respiratory death. Article presents the real evidence.

“The problem with these statements is that they are not supported by the evidence. When we look at the actual data, we see that although many people did die from whooping cough in the early part of the 1900s, by the time the vaccine had been introduced the death rate in the United States had declined by more than 90 percent. Using the source that was referenced to make the statement in the Pediatrics paper, we see that the decline in deaths from the peak was approximately 92 percent before the introduction of the DTP vaccine. [4]”

DTP has killed millions of children in Africa (WHO, Gates, Gavi).

That was sad to hear that. I have listened to Alan Watt from at least 2002 and I used to listen to him every week. I have loads of his shows archived.

Not sure why.

I have just downloaded his last podcast which I will listen to later on. Really, what a loss.

Alan Watt was great.

Such a nice radio voice and a calm way about his delivery, it helped me through the last 20 years of madness and really helped put things about how the world works into a useful framework for me.

He was right on point with his analysis of current affairs and his unique slant was also precise in it’s dissection of that which is hidden in plain sight.

He will never be replaced with anybody that has the depth of knowledge he had. He won this knowledge from a life-time of analysis. He paid attention, close attention.

Poor old Alan suffered really badly from a chest infection that nearly killed him a few years ago. It really did him harm and I don’t think he really recovered from it.

I wonder what he died from. Perhaps there will be a clue in his last podcast.

I will really miss him. I wish I had written to him to say thanks for his work and tell him how much I appreciated it. There is a lesson in life.

RIP Alan Watt.

One of the sceptics positions is that the vaccines may have contributed to the second spike of deaths in early-Jan.

So ask yourself this. Post Feb 1, 15.000 have died from the Rona (supposedly).

Why?

If the drugs work why are they still dying?

Further, 400 dead and thousands injured from the jab? Why no reporting, why nothing on this or other sites about the rising dead and injured counts? Will this get worse over time given that the drugs change your RNA?

Dr Susan Hopkins, Public Health England’s Strategic Response Director for COVID-19, said the population may have less immunity to respiratory viruses such as flu due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Firstly, given the cock up the PHE made of the pandemic planning we had in place it suggests that Dr. Hopkins failed miserably in her day job. Secondly she seems to missed the fact that a vast number of the deaths caused by influenza have been re-categorised as Covid deaths, so in fact the immunity is still present. I wonder how much she gets paid (and the size of her final salary, inflation proofed pension} for uttering such crap?

And as for the Chief Executive of the NHS Confederation telling us what a wonderful job the NHS has done; he would say that wouldn’t he? Once again, having no skin in the game and with his guaranteed job and massive renumeration, he sits in his ivory tower believing his own publicity.

In our part of Devon the major District Hospital cannot run all its outpatient clinics. Why? Because a lot of the nursing staff are working at the vaccination centre; the vaccination centre at which a lot of St John Ambulance volunteers could handle but have been told they’re not needed.

Secondly she seems to missed the fact that a vast number of the deaths caused by influenza have been re-categorised as Covid deaths, so in fact the immunity is still present.”

About half the Rona dead are those with flu-pneum-resp illnesses over the past 2 flu seasons, based on statistical analysis (roughly 25 K from spring 2020, 35 k from Oct – Feb 2021).

Many of the remaining 60 K Rona dead are heart disease, dementia (based on 10 yr stats analysis).

About 20-30 K died from, not with Rona in the UK over 2 flu seasons.

By comparison in the average year about 70 K each year in the UK, from flu-pneum-resp. So I would say we had a very bad flu year in 2020, and 2021 will be fairly normal. Avg age of death is 82. The data simply does not support LDs in which 45 K (?) have died.

You won’t see any stats analysis by this useless gov’t the useless NHS or the useless Fake News.

Typesetting. The quote columns are compressed two words wide in sime places – white space either side with verticle grey quote bar taking up valuable screen space. Result, unreadable articles metres long 2 cms wide.

Much work on the new 2.0 to be done I guess. One of the good things about 1.0 was they generally well layed out design, it was readable. This 2.0 not so much.

Suzanne Hopkins: less immunity to respiratory viruses such as flu ‘due to the coronavirus pandemic’? Or ‘due to stringent lockdown measures with multiple knock-on effects that weren’t factored in, including a compromised immune response due to our immune systems forced dormancy?’

452295 ▶▶ FerdIII, replying to Covid_sceptic, 5, #321 of 930 🔗

History of infectious diseases: better health, sanitation, waste removal, cleanliness, food, diet, exercise and vitamins equated into massive reductions of infectious diseases.

All infectious diseases were on a massive decline BEFORE vaccatinations were forced on us.

Ergo, LDs are not only illegal, immoral, but also counter-productive. You want people in the natural enviornment, not in choke points, excercising, ingesting vitamins, juices, water, good diets and for those at risk, you can quarantine them. LD is not quarantining. It is simply destroying and is anti-science.

Totally realistic. Not going to happen. The ‘roadmap’ is just a list of ‘maybes’, ‘ifs’ and ‘only’s, with more get outs than a collander. One of the conditions is no variants. Within five days of publishing, they had a new variant. And so it will go…

452287 ▶▶ ThomasT, replying to Charlie Blue, 13, #332 of 930 🔗

From the sounds of it they are all lining up the seeds in our brains that covid will come back with vengeance come September with some of the things they are saying now.

So my thoughts are they will ease up on the lockdowns come 21st June, but encourage people to remain “safe” with masks & social distancing. That will give us July & August “free”, then come September/October when the normal yearly respiratory illnesses come, they will use that as “proof” theres another covid variant and because lockdowns are now the normal way to handle such things, we will be back in another lockdown ready for winter. Or, they may use lockdowns as a threat or means to force people to have another covid “vaccine”. Either you have the vaccine or we lock you down, which do you prefer?

452302 ▶▶▶ A. Contrarian, replying to ThomasT, 14, #336 of 930 🔗

Not Covid in September, but flu, as Susan Hopkins says. So they won’t even need lots of positive PCR tests to lock us down again. Because we locked down to save the NHS last year, we will need to lock down to save the NHS next year because locking down has made things worse for them by swapping one infectious disease for another.

I told lots of people over the summer that essentially existing in a sterile world would have serious ramifications for the future. Humans need immune challenge, the only reason the common cold isn’t more serious is because we’ve been exposed to it time and time again. Of course I was a granny killer for saying that, or a covidiot, or a covid denier, or not an immunologist/virologist, or not following the science etc etc.

However perhaps it won’t matter for most people. They won’t care half so much if granny dies from flu this year (“it’s just flu”) so long as she didn’t see her family last year to avoid dying from Covid.

I just wonder if the numbers will be added to next winter with all the ADEs from the “vaccines” which they won’t admit is the cause, so they will push more “vaccines” (or boosters)for all the new variants & it will just develop into a vicious cycle every winter.

Anyone trying to compare potential vaccine passports with driving licences (‘Well, you need a driving licence to drive a car, don’t’cha!’) is either stupid or being disingenuous. Such a comparison is vitiated by disanalogy. Not having a driving licence does not prevent you from getting a cab or lift from a pal to the airport and flying to your holiday destinatuon, or to the restaurant and enjoying your beef cannelloni. Potentially, not having a ‘vaccine passport’ or ‘certificate’ will make it *illigal* for you to get on that plane or eat in that restaurant. This would turn on its head the idea that liberty is a natural and fundamental right, and would turn ‘liberty’ into a conditional ‘right,’ making a complete mockery of the term.

452285 ▶▶ FerdIII, replying to JohnDanny, 21, #340 of 930 🔗

I vote for stupid.

A driver’s license proves I can drive a car safely without killing others. I can choose (as many do in London) not to pursue a driver’s license and take public transport. My rights, my choice. I am, as you said, not limited by this, and can still participate in society.

An experimental drug injection, for poisons still in testing, rushed, with RNA and aborted fetal cells are being put into me. I am not ‘learning’ how to inject. I am being forcbily injected. Coerced. If I refuse, I am denied participation in society. It is not my choice, but that of CV fascists and the state, in which their coercion is unsupported by evidence, science or basic immunology. My rights and life are now denied.

Comparing a DL with the Drugs, is as stupid as LDS and ‘experts’ equating mRNA drugs with ‘normal vaccines’ which do not change your genome (and historically are largely useless, contrary to modern propaganda). No conflation or relationship exists.

The lack of immunity against future flus is exactly what Prof. Gupta raised as a concern from the very start.
We only had moderate death tolls over the last century because we developed and passed on immunity through having been impacted by the Spanish flu.

The point is that children and adolescents should never have been placed in such a position. That is criminal in itself.

The recent HART debate on the treatment of children between three professionals is worth watching if you haven’t done so already.

One of the points made by the psychologist involved was very potent : that, since March 2020, we are seeing complicit parents behaving in ways that would have raised child safeguarding issues prior to that. What we are seeing is the inducing of behaviour that emulates collective Munchausen’s Syndrome by Proxy.

As to the teaching unions – I am without words to condemn sufficiently their complicity in child abuse, whether through stupifying ignorance or direct culpability.

… and I speak as someone who – admittedly many moons ago – was a one-time member and representative of one of them. Having talked with contemporaries who also started out in that way, we cannot conceive of the same circumstances arising at that time c.50+ years ago when we had grown up with others’ living experience of totalitarianism.

This is a serious well considered twitter thread about the absolute danger of introducing a vaccine in an ongoing pandemic. This is from Gert van der Bosche,a virologist who has even been working for GAVI.He is not considering anything about the dangers of the vaccine in itself and does not go into that at all. It is the timing of introducing the vaccine which is a catastrophe according to him. It make sense and we always vaccinated for flu BEFORE the flu season.

Absolutely. Pfizer actually made this point, in their briefing document.

Perhaps the desire to run global trials of AI tracked biohacking as the basis for a ‘new biotech™ system of genetic control is simply overriding all and any other consideration as the ‘opportunity of the age’. Not just social engineering, but the tooling of human attributes or sub species) and the interface to technical augmentation and of course replacement of the human weakness, susceptibility, and unworthiness – that can all manifest as obstacles or opposition to the monopolar mindset of possession and control.

In my view the vaccine is a means of perpetuating the fear-threat conditions for the ongoing human experimentation.

Actually, positives are a little below what I’d expect accounting for false positives, even with increasing use of LFT (now approx 2/3 of total). There’s no doubt in my mind that the cycle threshold has been dialled down for PCR.

I am monitoring the UK/French comparison. Death rates stay similar, a little higher in France, but the same trend since the ‘great fall-off’ of the UK rate in Feb. ‘Cases’ are completely different. A clear indication that LFT and lower CTs being used in UK , while France continuing with PCRs at higher CTs.

All COVID-19 pandemic propaganda is based on saving old people’s lives, but turns out that they are used as test animals. The idea about it came after I found out that people in care homes are forced to take the COVID-19 vaccine and many die after it.

A society that corrupts science, the basis for discovering, describing, and employing reality, is doomed. Honest science requires free inquiry and debate. It is a never-ending process of proposing, testing, evaluating, revising and discarding hypotheses for new ones with more explanatory and predictive power. There is no such thing as settled science. The claims that there is with regards to climate, coronaviruses, or any other scientific issue are nothing more than admissions that the purported science is propaganda. Unchallenged science is a contradiction in terms; challenge is the lifeblood of science.”

Posting here again. Apologies as this new format has messed me up a bit:

Tide turning even more?

Yesterday while enjoying my lunch in a park, I overheard two friends in their 60s talking about the vaccine.

The woman told her male friend that her mother who I suspect is in her 80s to 90s has declined the second dose after falling ill following the first dose. The woman elaborated that her mother is still not feeling 100% better.

How many more people are declining the second dose? Apart from the fact that more and more are declining the vaccine.

452495 ▶▶ BeBopRockSteady, replying to Bart Simpson, 13, #446 of 930 🔗

I sat and listened, biting my tongue, to my brothers wife explain how her mum has had a swollen arm for two weeks since the jab. Not a normal bumb, but a swollen arm which is giving her neck pain as the added weight on that side isn’t natural.

The conversation that followed between my own mum and others in attendance was total acceptance of this. As if it’s just normal. I said nothing until later when the subject of kids and vaccines came up. I hit the roof. They’ve bought into the possibility already. I’m on my own for now.

452524 ▶▶▶ Bart Simpson, replying to BeBopRockSteady, 9, #447 of 930 🔗

It’s funny how many people dismiss those feeling unwell after the vaccine as “shows it’s working.” Will they be saying that when the person dies or the Bell’s Palsy becomes permanent?

452567 ▶▶▶▶ Dodderydude, replying to Bart Simpson, 9, #448 of 930 🔗

A close friend said to me the other day (post vaccine) that he had felt a little under the weather for a couple of days “as you might expect after vaccination” so I asked him if he had had similar side effects from previous vaccines. He thought for a minute and then said.”Well, I suppose not”.

I am almost certain that when they have the vaccine they are being told that they ‘might be knocked for six or have swellings for a few days but that is to be expected and nothing to worry about’. Hence people think it’s normal and many aren’t reporting side effects unless they are actually hospitalised….and even many of those cases probably don’t get reported because the victims have more pressing things to think about.

452667 ▶▶▶▶▶ Lisa (formerly) from Toronto, replying to Dodderydude, 2, #449 of 930 🔗

I was just contemplating how twisted things currently are.

Some years ago, readers may recall that there was a case in Kirklees where a Teaching Assistant was dismissed because she would not relinquish wearing a niqab in school.

At the time, I was chair of governors at a school that had children from a vast range of backgrounds; I recall that 20-25 different languages were spoken in the homes. It was a brilliant, happy and welcoming school, with a majority of families coming from S. Asian, muslim backgrounds. (I remember some Ofsted twat asking what we did for ‘social cohesion’ – favourite buzz-word at the time, and being tempted to tell him to just get off his arse, walk around and ask to find out).

Anyway – although we’d never had any conflict like this niqab issue, the Head and I did briefly discuss what we should do if the issue of face covering ever did crop up.

We had no hesitancy in agreeing that covering your face was not acceptable in a school, given the crucial role of facial expression in communication, and that no religious belief could ultimately trump that fact.

So what the f. is this nonsense all about, where the only belief involved is a belief in a nest of fictions?

452503 ▶▶▶ BeBopRockSteady, replying to RickH, 4, #454 of 930 🔗

It’s the veil of virtue signalling being pulled away from so many people. Ultimately they seem selfish and adopt self serving positions while fronting it with concern for kids, talk of freedoms, talk of deeply held beliefs.

And they do so in such grand terms as to make it sound plausible.

The reality is they tell themselves whatever story makes their life easy. They do not care until it actually hurts them directly. Everything else is just an act.

As reported by New Delhi-based World Is One News (WION), 1 Pfizer is demanding countries put up sovereign assets as collateral for expected vaccine injury lawsuits resulting from its COVID-19 inoculation. In other words, it wants governments to guarantee the company will be compensated for any expenses resulting from injury lawsuits against it.

Pfizer then demanded the Argentinian government put up sovereign assets — including its bank reserves, military bases and embassy buildings — as collateral. Argentina refused. A similar situation occurred in Brazil.

In the U.K., there were 49,472 reported side effects to the Pfizer vaccine and 21,032 reactions to the AstraZeneca vaccine as of January 24, 2021. As reported by Principia Scientific International, 46 “For both vaccines this equates to 1 in every 333 people suffering an adverse reaction. This rate could actually be higher as some cases may have not been reported …”

Examples of side effects reported after vaccination with Pfizer’s, Moderna’s and AstraZeneca’s vaccines from around the world include:

It goes into the memory-hole because the idea that the governments of so many countries are not only deceiving us big time but that they care so little for us that in order to establish a financially secure future for themselves they will destroy this country and throw us all into ill health and poverty doesn’t compute.

Interesting comment re debt insolvency and the corona-imperative.

Don’t believe that is the main reason for the Corona totalitarianism.

WEF and others are quite clear – it is tied to, and supports, Green Fascism. Doris said this last summer as well. Rolling LDs from this fall onward, to save Gaia from the 4% gas by weight plant food, now classified a toxin, with 5% emitted by humans (the satanic and relevant % one assumes), as the main imperative.

Health passports are simply a means to surveille and control (you cannot drive to Devon, it is outside your zone 4 access area, you cannot go to Spain you have used your carbon quota, you must pay us an extra carbon tax since your son went to Russia…etc etc).

Economic collapse is a part of that narrative, but not the impetus.

Comment is quite right that we (all countries) are bankrupt and that our currencies are worth shyte. But is incorrect about the real reason for Corona.

452718 ▶▶▶ jos, replying to FerdIII, 1, #497 of 930 🔗

But the green fascism is just as fake and is another way to achieve the same ends.

So with NHS chiefs threatening to cut patient care unless they get £8bn this week for extra Covid costs, and unions threatening to strike over pay, remind me again why we’re protecting the NHS 🤔 . They don’t seem all that interested in protecting us.

452515 ▶▶ FerdIII, replying to Fear is Finite, 9, #499 of 930 🔗

They gleefully help themselves to a very large sum of my money every year….yet I cannot access the system…..and use private medicine anyway. How about my money back?

452540 ▶▶▶ Fear is Finite, replying to FerdIII, 3, #500 of 930 🔗

Yep. And private insurance no good either as doesn’t cover chronic conditions (in my experience). So when I see my specialist of choice that’s money straight out of my pocket.

452546 ▶▶▶▶ FerdIII, replying to Fear is Finite, 3, #501 of 930 🔗

Correct. I just had a 25% deduction for a private 360-scan. NHS can’t provide what I want (full scans, cancer, prostate etc). So out of pocket. But happily done since I can do it anytime without waiting 9 months and not getting what I want from the ‘overwhelmed’ NHS.

452563 ▶▶▶▶▶ Fear is Finite, replying to FerdIII, 1, #502 of 930 🔗

If I’d stayed with the NHS I wouldn’t have a thyroid right now, because they consider it easier to remove body parts than to address root causes. Happy to say I still have it, plus a (paid) doctor that helps me keep it, everyone should have that opportunity. The system is very very broken. Am I the only person who is actually wondering how many lives have been saved by not being subjected to NHS incompetence over the past year? Some for sure, but probably doesn’t outweigh lives lost.

452596 ▶▶▶▶▶▶ RickH, replying to Fear is Finite, 1, #503 of 930 🔗

Well – just to get the balance right – I’ve had superb treatment by the NHS in a variety of major disciplines. It’s kept me alive for eight years.

Our neighbor, on the other hand, has suffered from aggravation of a serious back problem over the same period – caused by incompetent private treatment.

Why are pregnant women getting vaccinated? It’s been very common knowledge since last summer that the Pfizer gene therapy injection should not be given to pregnant women or even those trying to get pregnant. It said so on the tin.

452521 ▶▶▶ Victoria, replying to neilhartley, 4, #509 of 930 🔗

Doctors tell then to get vaccinated

452536 ▶▶▶▶ Stringfellow Hawke, replying to Victoria, 4, #510 of 930 🔗

Yep. I suspect many of them sadly were pressured. Van Tam certainly said something recently publicly, not-so-subtly urging pregnant women to get the jab. His head needs to be on the block, imo.

I sincerely hope that some of these women at the very least, make immediate complaints about their Dr to the GMC…unless they were given 100% fully informed consent about the experimental nature of the jab, which from anecdotal reports, seems unlikely.

452705 ▶▶▶▶▶ jos, replying to Stringfellow Hawke, 1, #511 of 930 🔗

Didn’t he say something along the lines of ‘We didn’t do testing on pregnant women but there’s no reason to believe it isn’t safe.’? (There’s equally no reason to believe it is safe). This is a new form of scientific thinking that I’m unfamiliar with. Doublethink? Newspeak? One of those….

452747 ▶▶▶▶▶▶ Edward, replying to jos, #512 of 930 🔗

The Van Tam statement goes against the precautionary principle, which is ironic since that principle was (mis)applied to justify lockdown and is also part of the basis for “vaccinating” healthy people.

452544 ▶▶▶▶ neilhartley, replying to Victoria, 5, #513 of 930 🔗

That then seems to me to be criminal negligence.

452548 ▶▶▶ Dodderydude, replying to neilhartley, 4, #514 of 930 🔗

Pfff, what do the developers know? You must have seen our own medical experts (Van Tam, for one) say that there is no evidence suggesting that pregnant women could be adversely affected by the vaccine. Surely that must be sufficiently reassuring? He didn’t of course clarify that no initial trials had been carried out on pregnant women and animals.

I recall also that the developers advised against using the vaccine on people with underlying conditions or on certain medications as they had been excluded from the initial trials, but that principle has clearly been abandoned as well.

And then there was the change to the prescribed interval between jabs….

The case against lockdowns. A convert.

https://cspicenter.org/blog/waronscience/the-case-against-lockdowns/

I’m one of them. Back in spring, I was in favor of lockdowns, but since then I have reached the conclusion that lockdowns and other stringent restrictions do not make sense from a cost-benefit perspective. I now think that, even with the information we had at the time, supporting lockdowns was the wrong call because even though I insisted that it was only a temporary solution and that we should be ready to revise our view as more evidence came in, I should have known that people would not and that lockdowns would quickly become institutionalized. However, in this post, I will not be arguing for this view. I only want to argue that, regardless of what should have been done last spring, the data we have accumulated since then show very clearly that, whatever the precise effect of lockdowns and other stringent restrictions, it is not nearly as large as we might have thought, so their costs far outweigh their benefits and we therefore should avoid them where they are not currently in place and start lifting them immediately where they are.

452510 ▶▶ neilhartley, replying to Basileus, 4, #517 of 930 🔗

The problem of using “cost benefit analysis” is the implication that this is all about health vs wealth. Cost should be replaced by harm.

452556 ▶▶▶ Julian, replying to neilhartley, 1, #518 of 930 🔗

Yes, though I think “cost” can and must be interpreted to include a notional cost for lost freedom and happiness, ability to enjoy life normally etc. If you don’t then you’re saying those things don’t have a value, which is indefensible. They are tricky to put a value on, but that’s a different story.

I just saw the following on the Collateral Global twitter feed, which I understand collects MSM articles that reference the fallout from these disastrous policies. This is from the recent Daily Telegraph article.

2 sentences that nail the insanity.

“there was a backlog of 4.52 million patients by the end of the year, 224,000 of whom had been waiting for more than a year for treatment.
This compared to 1,500 at the end of 2019.”

MODELLING If anyone wants to get to grips with pandemic and other modelling Futurelearn with the Open University have a free course at https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/pandemics-modelling-and-policy

I may try it myself. In any event, if possible a large enough number of people should be able to understand the model Imperial & Prof. Fearguson are using. It’s pretty clear that when the next Asian virus is identified-which is inevitable, lockdown will be the preferred initial response.The magic circle of modellers needs to be penetrated.

452533 ▶▶ FerdIII, replying to frankfrankly, 2, #528 of 930 🔗

These ‘models’ depend on many things.

1-Application code
2-Database schemas and organisation
3-Database access, code, logic
4-Application access and use of the Database data
5-Data integrity, validity, source cleansing

If any of the above are junk, the model is junk.

If any of the above are undocumented and not tested, the model is junk.

If any of the above cannot be templated and rebuilt by others outside the organisation, the model is junk.

452553 ▶▶▶ Julian, replying to FerdIII, 4, #529 of 930 🔗

I think the main problems with the Ferguson model were/are that the inputs were based on what look like incorrect assumptions about when the pandemic started, seasonality, prior immunity and the natural progression of respiratory viruses, and IFR, and they haven’t once adjusted it to account for what has happened in the real world

You can have the greatest code in the world but if the inputs are wrong it’s GIGO

Lots of comments about Geert Vanden Bossche on here the last few days. Another interview will be happening with Dan Astin Gregory this evening, details below:

BREAKING NEWS: The Implications of Mass Vaccination during a Pandemic

I have secured an exclusive interview TONIGHT at 17:00 GMT with Geert Vanden Bossche, an independent virologist and vaccine expert who was formerly employed at GAVI (the vaccine alliance) and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

He recently wrote an open letter appealing to the WHO (and all stakeholders involved) to immediately halt the mass vaccination campaign stating that there is compelling evidence indicating that the mass rollout will dramatically worsen the consequences of the pandemic.

In this LIVE interview we will discuss his open letter and explore the evidence.

I appreciate this is short notice but given Geert’s recent open letter he will soon be in hot demand and we are fortunate to have secured this exclusive interview tonight!

 A rather strange list of Estonia,Poland, Iceland, Georgia and Seychelles. They all seem different and many has as alternative neg test before entering. Interesting to see what happens in summer and low incidence and what happens in the fierce competition to get back tourists. The pandemic must end in July for the Big Pharma companies to reap the profit from the vaccines. The situation could be quite different at that time.

452561 ▶▶ Prof Feargoeson, replying to swedenborg, 14, #535 of 930 🔗

“The pandemic must end in July for the Big Pharma companies to reap the profit from the vaccines.” Is your thinking here that if the “vaccines” fail to end the “Pandemic” (the one that really ended last May such as it ever was) then younger people in particular will no bother and wait for something better to come along?

I personally will travel anywhere with no muzzles or vaccine or test requirement. So staycations for now. My £££s are waiting for any country to ditch the theatrics.

452573 ▶▶▶ swedenborg, replying to Prof Feargoeson, 7, #536 of 930 🔗

It’s a ridiculous change of tack. What proportion of the extremely useful BTL comments actually relate to one of the day’s ATL articles? Not many I would judge. I live on my own and spend all day long jumping around different website discussion threads to see what people are thinking and conversing about, and looking for useful links. I’m certainly not intending to add to my endeavours by jumping around different articles on here. I’d rather just reluctantly accept that I have to do without such a source of info.

A similar ‘article only’ commenting policy applies on the Daily Telegraph but it is apparent there that anybody wishing to comment in depth on lockdown/vaccines etc just posts their comments on the letters page BTL, even if they are not relevant to any of the published letters. I know publishers are not duty bound to provide a general open forum but it does seem such a shame, and damaging to the cause, if such outlets vanish.

This is a very precious resource for a significant number of people and they have made it what it is. It does not require editorial improvement. Thank you.

Or words to that effect

452606 ▶▶▶ Julian, replying to Steve F, 7, #544 of 930 🔗

I agree

I have had a quick look at the Forums and one would need to start a new topic for each day but then within that you’re always just replying to the whole topic not to individual posts within it.

452728 ▶▶▶▶ Ovis, replying to Julian, 2, #545 of 930 🔗

The forum is useful, but it works much less like a real physical forum than does the single btl comments feature. If that is switched off it will be a major loss to the community that posts here.

I’m not sure that the rationale given for this move really hangs together. There is no need for anyone to be staying up all night. If the daily post happened at 5:00pm rather than 4:00am, I don’t see there would be any loss at all.

It would also hardly be difficult to set things up so that comments could be made on individual stories, without switching off the main daily btl thread. The fact that we are today (for the last time, apparently) able to do both shows that it is not some technical impossibility.

I do hope there is a reconsideration.

452569 Steve Martindale, replying to Steve Martindale, 53, #546 of 930 🔗

I have now had an email reply from Will about the future of this site;

Hi Steve

To answer your questions:
1. Current intention is that the general comments under the Latest News post will stop after today. Comments will continue under each new post.
2. Yes, forums will continue. The front page link going missing was a bug that is now fixed.
3. Starting new threads in the forums, like commenting, is moderated.

Hope that helps.

Will

So it is now clear that this is the last daily general comments section.
However, the forums section is continuing and so I guess that leaves it up to us to run a daily up-dates discussion thread in the forums section if we so wish.

I know this is annoying for many including myself but I think it is important that we stick together if at all possible. If it had not been for the comments and information from all of you in these comments i suspect that by now both my wife and myself would have given in to the dodgy jabs as it is, so far, we are jab free. The social pressure out there is immense and hard to resist and so your support and information is crucial.

Steve I think that is a really good idea on starting a new daily thread in the forums – assuming it doesn’t continually get stuck in moderation hell.

Swiss sceptic site interprets rejection of e-ID law as

a. making introduction of vaccine passports more difficult

b. part of growing skepticism toward IT giants

Campaign against was supported by Socialist Party this time due to concerns about involvement of private firms in production of IDs. Press are trying to spin result as ‘yes to IDs, but without private firm involvement’

In any case, legislators will now have to come up with a new proposal and I am guessing that this too may attract a challenge (50,000 signatures required for referendum to be held). Depending on the exact proposal, opposition may have a different composition next time (ie if the SP as a party back it next time).

I can’t help but think that someone is trying to chop the legs off the community by smashing our conversations into pointless chunks.

The fact that none of the three main articles now on the home page have more than a dozen comments each sums it up. People want to comment here, not below carefully selected ATL articles at the front.

452866 ▶▶▶▶ John001, replying to Mabel Cow, 1, #577 of 930 🔗

I vote for a layout as close as possible to the http://www.politicalbetting.com forum. It’s an excellent, readable website if you bet on politics. It was just that after 7-8 months I found its users’ 95% loyalty to lockdown, vaccination and the ‘wonderful NHS’ too much to take.

If Toby is having difficulty with ‘conspiracy’ comments of the kind ‘Mr Gates wants to microchip me by 2030’ can he just create two sections for the forum, one on ‘non-pharma interventions’ and one on ‘vaccines’?

The one on vaccines can have a huge disclaimer that it is there solely to uphold free speech and in no way represents the views of the site owners or management. I’m sure that’s Mike Smithson’s view on PB although I’ve never seen a disclaimer. Rather he or his son sometimes ban people who use the kind of language that would get a comment removed from the serious press, e.g. Telegraph, Spectator, FT.

If Toby watches the Corbett Report on Gates, there are some claims there which I think help to distinguish reality from conspiracy.

My friends think that the ‘conspiracies’ will come up against the UK government’s aparent inability to run a pissup in a brewery. NHS IT system … anyone?

My song suggestion – sung to this tune https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5wCUlPNlQuA&t=8s

Mask it black

I see a bare face and I want it mask-ed black
No colours anymore, I want them to turn black
I see the girls walk by, dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head until the maskless goes

I see a car drivers and they’re all mask-ed black
With flowers and my love both never to come back
I see people turn their heads and quickly look away
Like a newborn baby, it just happens every day

I look inside myself and see my heart is black
I see a bare face, I must have it mask-ed black
Maybe then I’ll fade away and not have to face the facts
It’s not easy facing up when your whole world is mask’d

No more will my green sea go turn a deeper blue
I could not foresee this thing happening to you
If I look hard enough into the setting sun
My love will laugh with me before the morning comes

I see a bare face and I want it mask-ed black
No colours anymore, I want them to turn black
I see the girls walk by, dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head until the maskless goes

Hmm, hmm, hmm…

I wanna see it mask-ed, mask-ed black
Mask’d as night, black as coal
I wanna see the sun blotted out from the sky
I wanna see it mask’d, mask’d, mask’d, mask’d black

Yeah!

Very interesting news this morning concerning police and prison officers. It would appear that serving officers are NOT being allowed to have the ‘jab’ even if they want it. Very strange don’t you think? Why would this be a policy? Could it be that those in the know are well aware that the ‘jab’ is causing major injury and worse and the last thing they want is for the boys in blue to go off sick when they are sorely needed to harass those who are trying to behave normally? Not to mention of course that these anti cuddle warriors will be much needed when the sh*t truly hits the fan in the not too distant future.

This is being reported in the Daily Mail and Mark Steel makes much of it in his truly unique Geordie style. This gent may not appeal to everyone, but if you appreciated the direct, in your face, no nonsense approach of ‘OZ’ in Auf weidersen pet… he’s your man.

While we can still post off topic….
We have tended to praise Mike Graham as broadly sceptical and inwardly I still think he is. OK, today he seems to be diverted away to cover ‘that story’ – I will definitely not be watching it on the box myself… But on his home schooling slot just now he was talking about Helen Sharman who he claimed he had never heard of. Seems a bit strange as during Tim Peake’s tour on the ISS she popped up quite a lot on the media to discuss her time in space. I remember a few weeks back when they had a mathemetician on discussing simple algebra, a subject he confessed to know nothing whatsoever about. So here he is talking all the time about lockdown, vaccines et al but presumably knows just as little about them. Not far different from the politicians and our famous three who don’t seem to know the slightest bit about viruses.

Comment from her “Vaccines blah blah reinfection, don’t know about natural immunity”

Me “Na, nobody has been reinfected. Its single digits worldwide”

Her “I know at least 5 people who have been vaccinated AND have had Covid twice”

How is this possible that they’ve arrived in this place saying these words? I am worried about her mental state.

People are being forced to act as if:
– the virus is super deadly which it isn’t
– masks worn as the population does stops virus spreading
– children and young adults are at risk from this virus when they aren’t.
– that these new vaccines are the solution, except you are still at risk after you’ve had it.

And plenty of other thinks that are patently not true, and just plain crazy.

When people are forced to act in accordance with things that they know not to be true really, mental disorder ensues.

452755 ▶▶ LMS2, replying to BeBopRockSteady, #599 of 930 🔗

How does she know they had CV19 and not another respiratory infection, or have all the other respiratory viruses disappeared?

452820 ▶▶▶ BeBopRockSteady, replying to LMS2, #600 of 930 🔗

Yes. Word for word that was it. She’s a paramedic. Unreal.

I laughed then said something to the effect that a report I read discussed reinfection and that the BBC scare stories about the variants was even shaky about reinfection due to strong T Cells.

But no. Apparently you can have Covid, get vaccinated against it, and get it again. 5 people she knows this has happened to. In an NHS ward of 300k.

If this was true it’d be global news and be jumped on by every covidian as proof they’d been right all along. This is the plague.

452679 Ken Garoo, replying to Ken Garoo, 11, #631 of 930 🔗

I have received a letter from some NHS utfit regarding covid-19 ‘vaccination. There is a version online

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-vaccination-guide-for-older-adults/covid-19-vaccination-guide-for-older-adults

This is an interesting document – simultaneously informative and uninformative – truly post-truth (or whatever the phrase is). There is perhaps nothing new, but it is useful to have it documented:

It begins:

“Many people who are infected may not have any symptoms or only have mild symptoms. These commonly start with cough, fever, headache and loss of taste or smell.

Some people will feel very tired, have aching muscles, diarrhoea and vomiting, fever and confusion. A small number of people then go on to have severe disease which may require hospitalisation or admission to intensive care.”

Which basically repeats what Whitty said, back in May(?) 2020, that the virus is harmless to the great majority of people. If the government recognises that is the case, and has known about it since mid 2020, why the perverse continuation of harmful policies? (/rhetorical). This is also a case of a conspiracy theory becoming conspiracy fact.

“Overall fewer than 1 in 100 people who are infected will die from COVID-19, but in those over 75 years of age this rises to 1 in 10.”

The figures on IFR are probably over-pessimistic (by at least an order of magnitude given the with/from issue). It is interesting that the adverse effects of multiple co-morbidities is not mentioned. I can think of various ‘political’ reasons for this omission, but no valid medical reason.

“There is no cure for COVID-19 although some newly tested treatments do help to reduce the risk of complications. … A very small number of people who are at risk of COVID-19 cannot have the vaccine – this includes people who have severe allergies.”

So there goes the rationale for vaccine passports? If only. Medical apartheid becons.

“The COVID-19 vaccination will reduce the chance of you suffering from COVID-19 disease. … Like all medicines, no vaccine is completely effective – some people may still get COVID-19 despite having a vaccination, but this should be less severe.”

Should? How comforting to have a reduced chance of suffering! I am more than happy to sign away all my rights for that (not).

“The vaccine cannot give you COVID-19 infection … We do not yet know whether it will stop you from catching and passing on the virus. So, it is important to follow the guidance in your local area to protect those around you.”

So we still don’t know whether this drug is actually a vaccine giving long-term protection, or it is just labelled a ‘vaccine’ as a marketing ploy to sucker the gullible into becoming guinea pigs for Big Pharma. My bet it is the latter, as seems highly unlikely that permanent immunity can be generated for a rapidly mutating now low hazard RNA virus. If it was possible, I am sure the natural immune sytem would have gone that way in its millions of years of exposure to all sorts of pathogens. I suspect the natural end point for the respiratory virii is mutual co-existence for mutual benefit – the virus gets a host and the immune system is triggered into wider protection, hence no flu? So ‘marketing ploy’ it is.

“To protect yourself and your family, friends and colleagues you still need to:

  • practice social distancing
  • wear a face mask
  • wash your hands carefully and frequently
  • follow the current guidance

….
COVID-19 is spread through droplets breathed out from the nose or mouth, particularly when speaking or coughing.”

Really? Is this all based on the assumption that 1 in 3 asymptomatic people are carriers? Real research puts it at about 1 in 3,000 as an upper bound.

“It can also be picked up by touching your eyes, nose and mouth after contact with contaminated objects and surfaces.”

Washing hands is probably the sole protective action listed above that has any possible effect and benefit.

The deaths-by-underlying-cause charts show what bollocks the covid-on-death-certificate stats are. For example, look at cirrhosis and liver diseases and see how many deaths are coloured yellow to indicate covid-on-death-certificate. Are we really supposed to believe that covid was responsible for cirrhosis? Of course not, so straight away we have a bunch of “covid excess deaths” that are nothing of the sort. Multiply this by all the other non-respiratory causes of death and it shows how misleading the covid attribution is. Might it not be more likely that these poor sods died because they couldn’t get the medical care they needed?

Sad that the best part of the site is going. The forums, which I rarely visit, are no

Email update re the site format –

People will still be able to comment beneath individual posts and on other topics in the Forums.

We no longer have the bandwidth to moderate the current comment page I’m afraid – too much stuff that is off topic, just straightforward spam (often in Cyrillic script), comments slagging off LS and its contributors, false claims about the vaccines (such as they alter your DNA), commenters insulting each other using abusive language, and so on. It’s become a bit of a toxic swamp that is damaging the site’s reputation and putting off respectable contributors.

We must be respectable and mainstream above all else. Even though reality is no longer mainstream.

452745 ▶▶▶ Les Tricoteuses, replying to Londo Mollari, 3, #676 of 930 🔗

This is one thing I have not yet got to grips with. Does mRNA alter DNA? Do viruses alter DNA?

452785 ▶▶▶▶ Londo Mollari, replying to Les Tricoteuses, 10, #677 of 930 🔗

See Iane’s comment above – and please note that nobodyy – least of all Toby Young – knows what the long term effects of this concoctions are going to be. The crowd pushing the Greta Rest and all – people like Gates – are all into GMO crops and the like. Is it being overly conspiratorial to suggest that they may be thinking in the same terms about humans?

452796 ▶▶▶▶ Banjones, replying to Les Tricoteuses, 9, #678 of 930 🔗

We should at least talk about it, even if we’re only ignorant peasants. That can’t alter the truth, can it, Mr Young?
Still, now I know I’m regarded as a less than ”respectable contributor” I may as well look for another home!
How odd, though, that he should quite deliberately alienate people who’ve supported him for so long?

No mRNA does not alter DNA.
Do viruses alter DNA? Yes and no. Yes, DNA based viruses are believed to have been incorporated into animal DNA, including humans. No, RNA viruses are believed no to alter DNA
(h/t Claire Craig)

453066 ▶▶▶▶▶ John, replying to John, #682 of 930 🔗

Erratum:
No mRNA does not alter DNA.
Do viruses alter DNA? Yes and no. Yes, DNA based viruses are believed to have been incorporated into animal DNA, including humans. No, RNA viruses are believed not to alter DNA, with the possible exception of HIV, see below.
(h/t Claire Craig)



The retro virus HIV infects the cells associated with the immune system (T cells, macrophages, Dendritic cells). Which is why, if left untreated, the infection leads to Acquired Immunity Deficiency Syndrome.


The virus is able to convert its RNA into DNA because the virus contains within itself the necessary enzyme transcriptase to do this.


The resulting DNA can be integrated into the infected cells DNA because the virus contains the necessary enzyme, integrase, to do this. This may lie dormant for years.

Bottom line is the scientists with the full consent of pretty much everyone are tampering, in a highly novel, reckless and wholly inadequately tested way, with our highly complex natural immune systems without having the full understanding of how it works and what the long term effects might be. I guess we will find out the hard way.

Potentially, a choice between Scylla and Charybdis, for sure.
And why I will definetely wait for a traditional one, if I can’t avoid getting it at all.

Well, it appears my time here is at an end. I knew the site had taken an ‘interesting’ approach to the vaccines, and it seems that this is why the comments are being split up; I expect anything that isn’t in the tenor of the ATL commentary of them will be censored. I am not sure what ‘respectable’ contributors Toby thinks he isn’t getting because there are people on this side of the line who are looking beyond the Telegraph and government press releases for their information on the vaccines. It would be my contention in that case that they aren’t worth having in the first place.

If this post doesn’t get censored, I’d like to thank everyone on here for their comments and the information I have received reading them. If you all manage to congregate somewhere else online, I hope to be able to find you somehow.

A second person I know has been told that they cannot have an operation within 2 weeks of having a covid jab, is this common policy for all vaccines or just c19 ones. Neither thought to ask unfortunately.

I was told this as well. Not that I got as far as the surgery as my private hip replacement was cancelled when I would not have the PCR test. I found another private hospital who would do a different test (throat swab as I have severe nasal issues) but the wonderful NHS has commandeered private beds again. Last year they did this at a cost of £400m per month, although three quarters weren’t used. It seems that none of us are to be treated, even if we pay. It is mandatory that we must suffer for years. The NHS hospitals are empty and yet they are moving ‘urgent’ cases into the private sector. Now I doubt I’ll ever get surgery as they will bring in ‘no vaccine/no surgery’ soon and maybe even ‘no vaccine/no GP or dentist.

Just saw my first double masker in Galway. I watched this woman drive up in a mask by herself in the car with what looked to be about a 9month old baby. While walking across the car park with the baby on one hip, she pulled out a second mask and tried to put it, almost dropping the baby. If you are so afraid of a virus that you think you need a second mask, you have no business being in charge of a child.

Make of this what you will. One of the mothers at my son’s school shares my loathing of lockdowns and all other restrictions/diktats. Her husband’s in the army. I said to her today, ‘Don’t slap me, but how much do you wanna bet that the kids will be off school again within a month, perhaps due to a ‘dangerous new variant’?’ She said, ‘Nah. It’ll be October. Full lockdown again.’ She said it with such certainty. ‘Oh yeah?’ I replied. Turns out the army’s ‘preparing’ for ‘the next wave’ to come after the summer holidays/mingling when they ‘expect’ the NHS to be ‘overwhelmed’.

I think my dad was killed by the Pfizer vax. He had it on 20th Jan. Three weeks later he had very painful joints. A few weeks later he developed rashes on all lower half of body and swollen hands and feet. He was in hospital for 10 days and diagnosed with renal vasculitis. On researching this I found that it can be caused by an unusual immune reaction to an infection or allergic reaction to medication. ( vaccine ?) My sister fought to get him out, he didn’t want to be there, we couldn’t see him, and they said he was too frail for further biopsies.when they got him out they were shocked at how he had deteriorated and how neglected he looked. He could hardly take two steps and support himself. He died peacefully at home in his own bed 2 days later. Two ambulance men and a policeman came to certify death. And actually we felt like we were accused of murder. The hospital had said that they weren’t expecting him to die. No death certificate signed yet as coroner still trying to talk to a doctor.

I’ve had ‘the call’ from my doctors surgery. A young lady, full of the joys of spring, was clearly delighted to tell me that my ‘appointment for the vaccine’ was ready and asked me when – not *if* – I would like my appointment. I was tempted to tie her in knots by asking some rather obvious questions, such as *which* ‘vaccine’?, why she was apparently so enthusiastic about a novel biotechnology being injected into people, and why she automatically assumed I’d want such an injection, but, regrettably, I couldn’t be arsed.

I just said, ‘Actually, I will not be having the injection.’ Palpable silence. Then, ‘Oh. Okay, Mr. JD, I’ll take you off the list.’ ‘Marvellous, sweetheart.’

Perhaps I’m in a particularly good mood. Perhaps her being a mere receptionist made me hold back.

452877 ▶▶ RickH, replying to JohnDanny, 6, #802 of 930 🔗

You’re right – there’s no point in blaming the victims, and the victims include those who are told to carry out tasks – such as the receptionist; particularly in this context of mass brainwashing. I have never encountered undue pressure, in fact. Just saying ‘No’ is sufficient, and there’s little point in posturing.

It does leave you in a quandry, because each unremarked encounter is tacit reinforcement. On the other hand, no converts are made by ear-bashing and being seen as simply a bore.

The only thing I ‘blame’ the ‘victims’ for is their acceptance of the narrative and their lack of inquisitiveness. If by ‘victims’ you mean those subjected to the onslaught of psychological manipulation, then I agree to a point, but these are not mere victims. They are human beings capable of curiosity and engaging in rational thought. To paint them as mere victims is to a) insult their intelligence and rationality, and b) absolve them of their responsibilities as rational human beings.

Like others, I’m quite upset to be losing our general comments section as it has been a lifesaver for me. I’m not very technologically literate, but it seems that the daily stories on the Home Page each have a comments section that looks exactly like this vs. the other forums where a new topic has to be started. Could we all agree that the comments section of the first story of the day become our general comments section? Might be a bit of a challenge if the first story gets bumped down as new stories are added, but we could try to comment on those to remind people that the “main” comments section for the day is Story X, which today I think is the mental health of women declining due to lockdown. There’s nothing stopping anyone from an “off topic” comment I’m guessing. If I’m not understanding how the new format works, I apologize in advance!

You have to click the title line of each article or ‘read more’ at the bottom, then you will go to a full page with comments (few) at the bottom. From the tone of Toby’s email I would assume the moderators would not allow the first article comments to be taken over as a general comments one, they sadly want to keep comments related to their own chosen topics.

In the end, the changes are a bit of a dog’s dinner, and pretty obviously linked to the waning interest lying behind all the pretended rationale. I understand to some extent- the war has not been won, and there is little likelihood that Lockdown Sceptics is going to change that, especially with its fatigued acceptance of the vaccine narrative (I note the accepting repetition of the term ‘vaccine hesitancy’ – which is a capitulation of thought to the dominant narrative, and a minimisation of the reasons behind the suspicions and objections of the well-informed).

Fragmenting comment isn’t much of a solution to anything. There is an observable syndrome where, to be frank, as the day progresses, the comments section becomes a therapy echo chamber of repetitive moaning and too much irrelevant hobby-horsing. BUT the genuine links to hard information – if sparser – have been an invaluable exchange And I include in that all those personal experiences and insights. As has the ATL general ‘Round Up’.

I can’t see any value in dispersing those positive aspects, and the links that can be made between comments on different issues.

Fifteen impossible things I am expected to believe before breakfast:

Wearing a mask protects me and others from a virus.

A virus with an IFR of under 1% necessitates a worldwide lockdown.

Even if I have had the virus it is essential that I have a vaccine.

A vaccine that has had no long term studies is perfectly safe.

Even though I am a ‘Covid survivor’ I am a danger to others but if vaccinated (though no guarantee of immunity or cessation of spreading) I’m good to go.

Masking children and testing them twice a week is a good idea.

Vaccinating pregnant women poses no threat to their babies.

There are no consequences to locking down a country for a year.

There is a logic to social distancing in the check in queue at airports but we can sit (practically) on each others laps on the plane.

Whilst one sat down the virus is inactive.

Supressing one’s immune system will have no future consequences.

Obesity is a factor in a bad outcome if infected but shutting gyms is a good idea.

The postponement of cancer screening and treatments is necessary.

The NHS has never been in crisis until this year.

The government is interested in our health.

I could go on…………

Is anyone else a little irked by this phrase “… patients who have not come forward for treatment because of the pandemic…”?

People have not been declining treatment – it has been expressly denied us. I had an emergency admission to hospital just over eighteen months ago with what I eventually discovered to be a brain infection (although no-one thought to give me a diagnosis personally, this was revealed to me by admin staff at my GP). After being discharged I had to agitate for a follow-up appointment where the neurologist offered no treatment but said I would be ‘actively monitored’. Since then I’ve heard nothing. Perhaps they’ve all had to re-train as respiratory specialists and are fighting on the front line in our overwhelmed ICUs.

I have had my surgery cancelled many times I went private in desperation and the NHS commandeered the private hospitals last year at a cost of £400m per month and yet three quarters weren’t used. I finally got a date for January but it was cancelled as I refused a PCR test (nasal surgery and severe nosebleeds in the past) I found a different and more accommodating hospital who would do a throat swab but the wonderful NHS has taken the beds again. I am expecting it will soon be ‘no vaccine/no surgery’ or even ‘no vaccine/no GP or dentist’. The NHS hospitals are next to empty but they are still stopping patients even being able to buy their own surgery.

These buggers just will not give up! This from the Telegraph coronavirus live feed (free):

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/global-health/science-and-disease/coronavirus-news-covid-schools-reopen-lockdown-rules-vaccine/

Covid cases, hospital admissions and deaths continue to fall

Dr Jenny Harries, England’s deputy chief medical officer, has said that coronavirus cases, hospital admissions and deaths are all continuing to fall.

Dr Harries told a No 10 news conference that infections were now below 100 per 100,000 of population in every part of the country and were back to where they were in September.

“This is a level at which a new wave could easily take off from again,” she said.

She said that deaths were falling faster than other indicators, suggesting the vaccine was having an impact.

She warned, however, that there was still “substantial strain” on the NHS.

“This is a level [below 100 “cases” per 100,000 population] at which a new wave could easily take off from again,” What utter bullshit! With people like this in charge we’ve no chance.

452951 ▶▶ Prof Feargoeson, replying to Tenchy, 2, #856 of 930 🔗

And what would cause this new wave? The pulling power of the Moon?

452962 ▶▶ PoshPanic, replying to Tenchy, 3, #857 of 930 🔗

She warned, however, that she will continue to be a “substantial stain” on the NHS.

452986 ▶▶▶ Steve Martindale, replying to PoshPanic, 7, #858 of 930 🔗

Asking the NHS if it is under strain is like asking a farmer if the current state of the weather is good for farming! Today’s dashboard up-date shows 7812 ‘Covid’ patients in NHS England hospitals compared to around 34,000+ in January, so there has been a 73% reduction in ‘covid’ patients and they are still under strain! If the government was doing this seriously and properly there would be an independent assessment panel reporting on the state of the NHS.

452973 ▶▶ A. Contrarian, replying to Tenchy, 4, #859 of 930 🔗

Why do people need to watch Harries on the gogglebox to be told that cases and deaths are continuing to fall? There are so many other, less irritating, sources.

So low case numbers are bad news because case numbers could go up in the future? What would actually be good news to these people? Even Zero Covid would be a bad thing because we might one day find a case that goes EXPONENTIAL again..

And is there really, really still “substantial” strain on the NHS?!

Births data for January 2021 – ie the first babies conceived under lockdown, is now becoming available.

“According to INSEE, France’s national statistics agency, about 53,900 babies were born in January. That’s down 13% from January 2020, according to INSEE’s report on February 25 .”

https://www.forbes.com/sites/chrisobrien/2021/02/26/france-pandemic-baby-bust-births-fell-13-in-january-2021/?sh=599f4ed459de

The lowest birth total in living memory in the UK was 657000 in 1977

From the wikipedia page on UK demographics.

In 2019 the figure was around 713000 – with a further decline of about 4% in births to September in 2020.

If the 13 % decline in birth rates in France is replicated in the UK, then 2021 will see the lowest number of births in the UK since sometime in the 19th century.

See the wikipedia entry for annual birth numbers going back to 1900.

I went out for a cycle today. very few face naps, except, one young woman walking with an older lady out in the open and two other 30 somethings, who had em round their necks then a I approached pulled them up as I passed. grrrrr. Insane.

The jabbadrome was totally shut up, nothing going at all.

I talked to a mate of mine, he’s had the jab. An interesting conversation. I must say the take away points were: He’s had the jab so now he can go on holiday, he doesn’t care at all about anything to do with the jab, the possible health risks, he doesn’t care about the vaccine passports or having to produce one for going to the pub, hes had the jab.

He called me an conspiracy theorist, yeah so what that I have spent 5000 hours plus reading everything on here there is to read about corona bollocks and much much more to the exclusion of everything else for the whole of the last year.

No that doesn’t matter because of course I can easily pick bits of information out to disprove the narrow normie viewpoints on corona bollocks

His arguments were just idiotic and lame. total non arguments. Why? Because he doesn’t care, he can’t be bothered to read anything at all, he will not read anything I send him because he can’t be bothered.

He knows somebody like me, who won’t wear masks, won’t social distance, won’t have a jab and apparently EVERYBODY THINKS HE’S A C U next Tuesday.

Why not juts follow the rules? He says.

His is nice interesting guy, I like him but not so much now. Sad really.

So get this guy clone him x 30 million and this is why we are were we are today.

To top it all, this comments section is shutting up shop. I heard Alan Watt died. Not such a great day really.

What a shame.

To the tune of ‘My old man’s a dustman’

Now here’s a little story
To tell it is a must
About the situation
That obliterates my trust

Some people tell a lot of lies
Others what they see
It’s difficult to separate
But we must to set us free

Oh, Covid is the winner
It gets the winners cup
It necessitates some swabs
Sometimes they’re up your butt

We look a proper nana
With nappies on our face
We all have to wear em
To save the human race

Some folks listen to the news
And some of them believe
So you have to forgive em
For being so naive

Now some of em get nasty
And shout and cause a scene
We can Just ignore em now
They’ll soon get their vaccine

Oh, Covid is the winner
It gets the winners’ cup
It necessitates some swabs
Sometimes they’re up your butt

Though my old man’ has been conned
He’s got an ‘eart of gold
He got the Vax recently
Though he’s 99years old

Oh, Covid is the winner
It gets the winners’ cup
It necessitates some swabs
Sometimes they’re up your butt

Now, one day he may change his mind
He’ll miss the BBC
He’ll think about it for a mo
And decide to now be free

Oh, Covid is the winner
It gets the winners’ cup
It necessitates some swabs
Sometimes they’re up your butt

We found old BoJo’s head one day
Nailed to a piece of wood
Old Boris looked quite miserable
But I suppose he fucking should

Just then from out a window
A voice began to cry
It said, “Oi! Where’s me Boris head?”
“I said it’s gone to trial”

Oh, Covid is the winner
It gets the winners’ cup
It necessitates some swabs
Sometimes they’re up your butt

Next time you see old Boris
Looking all pale and sad
Just kick him in the dustbin
And do the same to his old dad

Have had a lovely day today lunching with friends, hugs all round, all very normal thankfully. First chance to catch with the comments today, so it seems this is the last comments. I am not sure if I will join anything else, I have a loathing of all apps or social media type sites sadly.

I have read here from the very beginning but have only been posting over the last couple of weeks, short but sweet as the saying goes.

Can I just say many thanks for the discussions, the humour and just knowing there are like minded people who sadly are also suffering in their own ways due to the draconian ongoing actions of our so called government.

Let’s hope all our musings and mutterings as to what is really going on is all totally wrong and it really has just been one giant hysterical cock up virtually worldwide. Everyone will eventually realise how stupid they have been and life can return to proper old normal, we can then quietly say “we told you so” and all will be well! (You never know……………it could happen!)

Having been out all day, I’ve only just logged onto the comments section and found out about the changes. Maybe it’s because I’ve had a long day and an unpleasant skirmish with a bonkers masked shop owner but I have to confess that I feel near to tears that this is likely to be the last one. I feel as if I’ve walked into my favourite café where I go every day to stay sane and feel supported through all the insanity, only to find that the tables and chairs have all been shoved aside and the customers – my friends and community – dispersed to other obscure parts of the building. Some of them have left altogether in disgust. I stand there feeling isolated and alone.
Could someone please repost Toby’s email address so I can add my voice of protest to this brutal dismantling of our online community?

‘The comments section is apparently a ‘toxic swamp’ full of swearing, insults and false claims about the vaccine that is ‘damaging the website’s reputation.’’

This comments section is informative and filled largely with knowledgeable people who know their stuff.

Can he identify these ‘false claims’ about the ‘vaccine’?

Grant for the sake of argument that some have made false claims. So what? Free speech, right, ‘Tobes’? Can ‘Tobes’ provide a coherent argument for allowing only ‘true claims’?

It looks like ‘Tobes’ is just another establishment rat.

Dreaded hospital appointment today with a consultant. Previous visits to Morriston in Swansea did not prepare me for the chaos of the Royal Gwent. The appointment letter simply said Royal Gwent Hospital in the department, so anticipating running a few minutes late, I phoned to ask where I was supposed to go. The consultant I was seeing is a visiting consultant who does not have a department there.

Eventually was told to go to the inpatients and arrived there at appointment time (Morriston insist you do not arrive early), to discover a queue of at least 30, including on crutches and in wheelchairs, waiting to get in. The wait was about 45 minutes, judging by the comment of the chap at the head of the queue, whose appointment was at 14.05 and it was now 14.40.

Realising that a visiting consulant is not going to be happy hanging around for 45 minutes, I bypassed the queue, much to the annoyance of several at the front, and after a brief wait, was admitted after a temeprature check. Brief couple of minute wait and in with the consultant, then sent for an expected x-ray. Time in the building was 45 minutes.

Only on other person seen unmasked on the premises, a receptionist in x-ray. Even outside in the queue they were all in masks. Had my lanyard on, but tucked into my to pocket, so not so obvious. No one challenged me at all.

Compared with Moriston, there seemed to be an awful atmosphere of demoralisation.

Probably explains the position of the site now….

“Getting vaccinated is a patriotic act. So is speaking up to support public health efforts.”
I can’t eat as much as I have to puke when I read such garbage.
And that is before considering that we don’t have any vaccines available yet, only experimental gene therapies with emergency approval, for people who are to over 90% not at much risk and no potential emergencies.

I’ve been wondering how long Toby&Co could stay up till the early hours, editing chunks of the MSM to post for our perusal while being negatively criticised for much of their efforts.

I did think it was odd that the email version suddenly had a donate button as the first thing encountered on opening, especially as we’ve had a lot of new members recently.

However, I can only say how grateful I have been to Toby for allowing this community to remain here for so long uncensored.

I am also very grateful to everyone here for their support, comradeship, candour, poetry, music links, much needed humour and the awesome information shared here that I’ve enjoyed and benefited from over the last several months.

Hope to see you on the Gab Lockdown Sceptics Group. Maybe we’ll work out how to create a long rambling chat thread like we have here……

Johnny Cash – Hurt

After all the hoo-haa on this site today i have that ‘last day at school feeling’ and a big let down empty feeling. I am not sure how the finances of this site work out? but i was about to make another donation but have now held back. I feel that the originator of this site has let me down, kicked me in the teeth, insulted me and made me hurt. If the result of this action is a lack of donations then I guess the future of this site is not good, maybe it is his way of pulling the plug on it all.
Even if we could somehow use the forum section or something, knowing that the owner of this site thinks so badly of us and is so embarrassed by us would make its strange to carry on.
It is weird how it is the vaccine that has been the breaking point and I say ‘the vaccine’ when i am guessing that for many. like myself, it is these mRNA vaccines and genetic control vaccines that have been the sticking point. If they were pushing a traditional type virus i would probably have said ‘silly idea’ but to keep the peace I will give it a go but these Pfizer/AZ potions are in a very different league. But his site has fought shy of even discussing the technicalities of these genetic therapy vaccines.

You are a great bunch and have been a huge help to me hopefully see some of you around somewhere somehow.
Huge thanks to you all from me.

So I guess I’ll see you guys on the flip-side. I pray you all find strength, hope and fellowship. This comments section was like a real family for a while. We informed, vented, argued, insulted, made-up, ignored, encouraged and most of all loved. Thank you all so much for banishing any doubt the path I’m travelling is a lonely one. To have bedfellows such as you all, I feel proud, humbled and privileged to be on this journey with you. Though we may be parted by distance, we are in truth, closer than any of us realise. I love you all so much, and will always hold you in my heart, thoughts and prayers.

It’s a sad ‘last day of school’ feeling on here (ironically on the first day back for most schoolchildren) but this should be a salutary lesson – if things are going to get as bad as some people think, then sites like this will just disappear without so much as a by your leave – and we will be lucky to even have Telegram to fall back on. So enjoy the new sites, reddit, gab etc but don’t neglect ‘real’ sceptics in your area – you may need them one day.

Yes – real people are very important, but I’d still like to meet all you real people on here one day too.

I’ve just requested to join the Gab group – please please join!! We need each-other more than ever – please don’t let this group break up!

453072 ▶▶ Nymeria, replying to CGL, 1, #922 of 930 🔗

CGL, can you tell me how to join, please? I’ve absolutely no idea what a Gab group is.

453075 ▶▶ Cheezilla, replying to CGL, 2, #923 of 930 🔗

I agree. I’d hate to lose the friends I feel I’ve made here.

There are two groups on Gab.

Gab Lockdown Sceptics: https://gab.com/groups/25813

And Gab Lockdown Sceptics and Rebels Group: https://gab.com/groups/25813

I’m already in the first and have just requested to join the second. Hope to find you there.

453076 ▶▶ Melangell, replying to CGL, #924 of 930 🔗

Just joined… Hope to carry on the conversation in another online “cafe”

453080 ▶▶ DRW, replying to CGL, #925 of 930 🔗

I’ve signed up for Gab and now been accepted into the LS&R group, different username but hopefully we’ll all find each other again soon.

453085 ▶▶▶ rockoman, replying to DRW, #926 of 930 🔗

Did you get an automatic confirmation.

I registered, or at least I think I did – but no email yet.

453081 ▶▶ Liz F, replying to CGL, #927 of 930 🔗

Just joined Gab too! Gutted to lose touch with all you wonderful contributors to this comments section. Really hope to catch up with lots of you on Gab.

453077 The Mask Exempt Covid Marshall, #928 of 930 🔗

Moved to Gab, username maskexemptcovidmarshall.

See you there!

It’s a real shame that the sum total of all our comments amounts to a toxic swamp.

Pre Covid I was a fairly civil and friendly person with an extremely fulfilling and may I say successful life. This government removed all meaning and purpose from my life. I didn’t choose this path it was forced on me. Apologies, if this has resulted in some comments of bitter resentment and expletive profanities.

I am still extremely grateful that Toby formed this site and allowed for the open comments. However, I am also grateful that we can now move on if we are no longer welcome. I have joined gab and lockdown sceptics on reddit.

453084 John Galt, #930 of 930 🔗

Quite amazing to see Toby describe the comments section as a “toxic swamp that is damaging the sites reputation”. The site is now utterly useless without the comments section. Whether it’s possible to comment on individual articles or not seems beside the point – the site owners don’t want the comments, so I guess we’ll just leave them to carry out whatever the purpose of the site actually is. Because what even is it? It was quite clear initially, but then things moved on, and the site didn’t.

Without the comments section I’ll never visit the site again. I imagine it will be the same for most.
