Boris has lost the plot
Here in England the government’s popularity has tanked after the latest hysterical pronouncements on ‘controlling the coronavirus’. Luckily the Chancellor of the Exchequer has vetoed the idea of a second national lockdown and Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s own party’s Members of Parliament are in open revolt over the economic devastation caused by the COVID-19 laws, regulations, and recommendations. Voters here are also more worried about the state of the economy than they are about a virus which is a lot less worse than the seasonal flu which is about to hit us. Polls suggest that 48% of voters think the government is doing ‘the wrong things’, while only 38% believe the government has got it right.
This coming week M.P.s will vote on whether ministers need parliamentary approval before introducing any more COVID-19 laws and regulations. The signs are that the government will lose this vote and be forced to come to parliament every time they want to enact another stupid coronavirus law.
England is in the grip of corrupt mad scientists, especially Sir John Bell who owns £770,000 worth of shares in Roche, the pharmaceutical company who charged £13.5 million for the pointless antibody screening kits he advocated. Then there is Sir Patrick Vallance, the Government’s Chief Scientific Advisor, who has £600,000 of shares in GlaxoSmithKline the pharmaceutical company developing coronavirus vaccines that are unlikely to do anything to stop this alleged pandemic.
The influenza vaccine, which is widely regarded as being a success, is said to prevent 50% of cases in a good year, down to 15% in years when the winter flu really takes hold. But that’s statistical rubbish because only the people who have had the vaccine are measured. It’s likely that half the people who become eligible to have the COVID-19 vaccine won’t have anything to do with it, and that there just isn’t the capacity to immunise large swathes of the population anyway. The coronavirus vaccine is no silver bullet.
The worst place for COVID-19 in England is a North Western town called Burnley, which has the equivalent of 256 cases per 100,000 people, or an infection rate of 0.256% of its population. You have more chance of being run over by a bus than you have catching the coronavirus.
Meanwhile business here; bars, pubs, restaurants, are subject to a 10 pm curfew. All that means is that young people start their drinking night out earlier in the evening. Slow handclap for the thick scientists who thought that a curfew was a good, workable idea.
Some say that COVID-19 is the worst threat faced by civilisation, ever. And that we must all be good sheep and follow our government’s orders. All I know is that the government has totally lost the plot.
mad scientists are running the country now
