Freedom

’emergencies’ have always been the pretext on which individual liberty has been eroded

the only casual sex allowed is phone sex

Here in England it’s Day 380 of the national coronavirus lockdown, and now that there may be some signs that some of the restrictions may be lifted in the foreseeable future, it is worth remembering just what has been taken away from us.

Just to focus on three of our inalienable rights;

  1. Freedom of Association.  All through this lockdown we have been prohibited from meeting our friends and families.  Two women sharing walk and a cup of coffee were arrested for ‘breaking the spirit of lockdown’.  A lady was arrested just for being outside the care home of her elderly father.  And while the Black Lives Matter ‘protests’ were allowed to go ahead, every other public gathering of more than six people was treated as a riot by our increasingly heavy handed police.  Schools, Universities, and Churches have been closed, as have all other possible meeting places.  Extramarital sex is out of the question unless you are part of the ‘governing elite.’
  2. Freedom of Movement.  We have been told not to to go anywhere unless it was absolutely essential, not to leave home, not to travel more than a dozen miles from home, not to go to work unless you couldn’t possibly work from home….., and our increasingly Gestapo-like police force have happily arrested anyone seemingly breaking the rules.  Airlines have been grounded, Wales and Scotland closed their borders, and do not even think about attempting to travel to the USA.
  3. Freedom of Trade.  Apart from some ‘essential’ food stores and pharmacies, everything has been shut.  Factories have been lying idle because nobody could buy anything they made.  Agriculture has been badly hit because farm workers were told to stay at home, or in the case of ‘foreign casual labourers’  weren’t even allowed into the UK.  And, of course, any business where people could gather together has been closed for the duration.  Forget getting a pint with your mates down the pub.

Some say that losing our freedom was a necessary part of staying safe and protecting the Health Service.  And that those who complained should be gagged.  (Well, there goes Freedom of Speech.)  All I know is that we have all lost more than just our basic liberties to combat a mild ‘flu epidemic.

Lockdown Day 365

23 March 2021 ~ my birthday ~ one year of lockdown

trust me; howling at the moon doesn’t help

The British Government’s draconian response to the coronavirus crisis starts its second year today.  We begin another year of lockdown.  None of the numbers surrounding COVID-19 are either real and nor do they make any sense.  In particular the alleged 126 thousand people who are said to have died of this virus in the United Kingdom in the last year is a completely false statistic.

There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.  ~  Mark Twain

Here, as in most countries, anyone who has tested positive for the coronavirus in the 28 days before their death is deemed to have died from COVID-19, no matter the true and real cause of death.  Even using the false statistics fewer than 2 in 1,000 who have caught the disease have died from it, (0.2%), and of those who have allegedly died from coronavirus, the vast majority have been over 82 years old, (which is older than the median age of death here).

A real statistic is that because of the coronavirus lockdown the UK is broke, and getting deeper into penury with every day that passes.  The cost to the UK economy of this lockdown is said to be £521 million a day, ($730 million), although our government is actually borrowing a billion pounds a day, every single damn day.

And the lockdown just gets more and more severe.   From next Monday, March 29th, taking a foreign holiday is illegal ~ in fact I would be fined £5,000 for just turning up at an airport.   It’s like living in East Germany under the yoke of communism.

All I can do is wish myself a happy birthday ~ hoping and praying that things get better for us all very soon.

why do we still have to wear a mask?

Avoiding Insanity During Lockdown

here in England it’s day 353 of complete lockdown
some ways I’ve been able to stay fairly sane

~

stay away from booze, especially hard liquor, alcohol never helps anything

~

get plenty of rest during the day and 6 to 8 hours of good sleep every night

if you need to, try herbal sleep aids

otherwise avoid street drugs and powerful medication

~

eat in a healthy and nutritious way

take high-quality and  appropriate food supplements

~

stay active, go outside, fresh air and exercise are important

~

anger and resentment against the unfairness is futile

~

even if you can’t meet anyone for a conversation

stay connected by phone and the internet

~

take enforced self-isolation one day at a time

~

personally, I found that prayer helps

COVID Vaccination

one of the greatest lies ever told is that vaccines are safe

Every ten years or so I get myself vaccinated against tetanus, a habit I formed when I had hobbies and pastimes which involved getting dirty, lots of cuts and bruises, and coming into intimate contact with the good earth.  That’s the only vaccination I’ve had since I was a child, and even back then I never had my full quota of shots.  You may be able to tell that I’m not a big fan of the whole vaccination against everything school of medicine.

Vaccination is a barbarous practice and one of the most fatal of all the delusions current in our time.  ~  Mahatma Gandhi

Nevertheless, this morning I booked myself the required couple of vaccinations against the coronavirus.  This was not an easy process, given that one has to use an NHS website which is about as clunky as a Model T Ford.  Not only that, but the doctors and clinics in my town are not involved with mass imunisation so I have to travel 25 miles to a pharmacy in Bishop Auckland to get the shots.  That’s going to be 4 expensive taxi journeys.

Add to that the first available slot for me is at the crack of dawn on March 23rd, with my follow-up shot at the crack of dawn on June 8th.  It’s verging on pathetic inefficiency.  And for what?  I do not believe that the coronavirus is a rampant deadly disease, nor do I believe that being vaccinated offers me any significant health benefits.

However, if I ever want to go anywhere in the foreseeable future I am going to have to be able to prove that I’ve been immunised.    Most authorities, in most of the countries I would want to go to on vacation will be insisting that visitors have been vaccinated.

The more vaccination is supported by public authorities, the more will its dangers be concealed or denied.  ~  M Beddow Bayly

It looks as though the earliest date I will be allowed to travel abroad is Monday May 17th, at which time I may well be allowed to go to Greece, even though by that date I’ll only have had one jab.  But who knows, the whole thing is a moving target.

Some say that vaccinations are dangerous and ineffective.  And that the coronavirus isn’t even as bad as the flu.  All I know is that I’ll jump through hoops if it means I can enjoy some warm Mediterranean sunshine.

if vaccinations are effective why will we still need to wear masks?

The Triumph of 1984

there is nothing good nor honourable among the elite

The gross perversion of the duties of politicians, health-officials, doctors, scientists, and law enforcement agencies during this coronavirus crisis, provides a chilling example of how the prospect of almost unlimited power and prestige can distort the judgement of intelligent people.  These people try to justify their actions as following the science, and protecting the NHS ~ they are lying not just the public, but also to themselves.  They are charlatans.

To more fully understand how these once honourable people have descended into an Orwellian elite we must also follow the money.  There are now untold billions of £ $ being thrown at the almost enforced vaccination of hundreds of millions of mostly unwilling people.  A few global pharmaceutical companies are doing very well out of this as are their investors.  One does not need to look very far to see who is included among the investors in Big-Pharm; those self-same politicians, health-officials, doctors, and scientists.

The legal profession is also doing very well out of the coronavirus crisis.  Lord Falconer, a senior left-wing politician, partner in the legal firm Gibson Dunn and leader of their ‘Covid-19 task force’ refers to the pandemic as ‘a gift that keeps on giving…..’  Such elite cynicism makes me sick.

It goes on and on and on.  Here in England people are being urged to get themselves tested for the coronavirus ‘if they have a runny nose…..’  This is England, in February, at least half the population will get a runny nose at this time of year ~ it’s called a cold.  Door-to-door testing programmes are underway, with teams of barely trained testers banging on unsuspecting peoples’ doors.  Anyone entering or leaving the country has to be tested a couple of times or more.  And why is that?  To inflate the number of those supposedly infected with the coronavirus with the objective of increasing public concern and further justifying the draconian measures urged on us by the politicians, health-officials, doctors, scientists, and law enforcement agencies.

None of the numbers are real.  The statistics are a tissue of lies.  The number of deaths attributed to the coronavirus includes all those who have ever tested positive and have subsequently died for any proximate cause or reason ~ like being run over by a bus.

Some say that those with privileges will spin things as being politically correct to further silence those they wish to oppress.  And that truth is hard but propaganda is cheap.  All I know is that the word DENIER is the most chilling thing I have ever heard.

Lockdown Day 300

the end of civilisation as we know it?

Here in England it’s the 300th day of lockdown, quarantine, and self-isolation.  The economy has tanked, officially there are 1.9 million unemployed, and about 5.5 million are on unproductive furlough.  About half the UK workforce, some 14 million people, are ‘working from home’.  You can’t get a non-coronavirus doctor’s appointment for love nor money, some 4.6 million people are waiting for ‘non-emergency’ surgical procedures, 600,000 cervical smears have been cancelled, and our National Health Service is said to be close to meltdown.

I have no faith in any of these numbers, just as I have no faith in the ability of the British Government to act sensibly in the face of the ‘COVID-19 pandemic’.

If you’re interested, I’ve been feeling like crap for weeks.

Mind how you go.

immunisation, the great hope for freedom?

It’s a Mad, Mad World

it’s a crazy world out there ~ be a rational anarchist

how long before we see these scenes again?

Just when I thought things couldn’t get any worse along comes the penultimate act of the presidential election in the United States.  Depending on who you want to believe the ‘occupation of the capitol’ was either a peaceful protest gone wrong, or a violent insurrection presaging another American Civil War.  Patriots or Anarchists?

The best thing I’ve heard is that President Trump has been banned from twitter.  The truth of it is that nobody with even half a brain should ever use twitter in any way, shape, or form.  Twitter is merely the modern equivalent of the washroom wall.

Here in Blighty our parliament has approved the latest tranche in our never-ending lockdown ~ to last until the end of March.  Today, England is now in lockdown day 290.

The compulsory wearing of face masks, lockdowns, and now mass vaccinations ~ any student of history who has even so much as glanced at the literature on the Spanish Flu pandemic of 1918 knows that nothing governments and the medical professions do is going to make much difference to the numbers infected, and the people who sadly get very sick and die.  However, here in England the over-zealous police are gleefully throwing their not inconsiderable weight around as though they alone know how to control the coronavirus.  Woe betide you if you leave home without a very good reason, or you get caught without a face-nappy, try to drive to McDonald’s, or have a visitor in your home.

It’s always the way that if you grant someone in uniform a little authority they will tend to abuse it.  Give someone in uniform an inch and they will try to recreate George Orwell’s 1984.

The insane saga surrounding the mass vaccination programme here goes grimly on.  It seems that each consignment of vaccination doses has to be approved by some bureaucratic nonsense called the Medicines and Healthcare Regulatory Agency, and that approval process takes three bloody weeks per batch.  Those first in line for the jab are the over 70s, but there are only 7 mass vaccination centres around England.  How many over 70s do you know who still drive?  Madness.

Some say that Boris Johnson is doing a marvelous Job.  And that our Health Service is the best in the world.  All I know is that I’ve stopped believing most of what I see and hear in the news.

No End In Sight

England will be closed down for months to come

some would say that’s being flown the wrong way up

Despite flashes of official optimism following the first vaccinations against the coronavirus, it would seem that there is no end in sight to the manifold miseries of lockdown, self-isolation, and national shutdown.  Scotland faces a national shutdown from midnight tonight, and there is no doubt that Prime Minister Boris Johnson will very soon follow suit for England.  He is making a televised statement at 8 p.m. this evening, and Parliament is being recalled on Wednesday this week, presumably to ratify whatever draconian new measures are announced.

Even harsher coronavirus  measures than before will mean that UK borders will be closed, international travel stopped, all stores except food stores and pharmacies will be shut, all schools closed, any and all household mixing will be banned, and people will only be allowed to leave their homes for one of a specified list of essential reasons, such as food shopping.

Despite these draconian emergency measures the numbers infected with COVID-19 will keep on rising, and more and more people will die.  There is nothing politicians, health officials, or medical science can do about it.  The coronavirus will mutate faster than vaccines can be developed to prevent each new strain.  Once a virus is loose in the general population there is no way short of Divine Intervention of controlling it.  And, who’s to say that God didn’t inflict this on the world?

The virus will eventually burn itself out, as all pandemics do.  But, this could take months or even years.  Until then we will all just have to suffer.

Good luck to us all.

Coronavirus Chaos

order, counter-order, disorder, chaos

The British Government’s handling of the coronavirus crisis is descending into farce, with Prime Minister Boris Johnson leading the charge towards chaos and civil disorder.

To begin with; England is mostly in the severest extant tier four lockdown, and faced with an even stricter tier 5, (which has yet to be invented).  Yet, Mr Johnson  is urging parents to send their youngest children to school tomorrow.  This could be a whole new ‘slaughter of the innocents’.  On the third hand, the Prime Minister has not ruled out a nationwide full shutdown of everything to try to control the new mutant strain of the virus.  Interestingly while primary schools here will be open tomorrow January 4th, no decision has yet been made on whether higher education establishments will be allowed to open even on January 18th.

It turns out that the whole lockdown idea touted by the disgraced, adulterous Professor Neil Ferguson came from Communist China.  What kind of guy is this mad professor anyway?  He’s got no medical qualifications whatsoever, in fact he never even passed a basic biology examination.  The latest on that is that lockdown hasn’t worked here because we are a ‘western liberal democracy…..’  WTF?

The vaccination programme is also in a complete mess.  Each recipient needs to receive 2 injections, spaced three weeks apart, (according to the manufacturer’s doctors and scientists).  However, in order to boost the numbers ‘vaccinated’ the idiotic health minister Matt Hancock is saying that there will be 3 months between vaccinations instead of 3 weeks.  Every statistic trotted out concerning COVID-19 is a damn lie.   As it happens a significant number of people, (perhaps 40% of the population), will turn down the opportunity of receiving the injections.

Many health professionals, such as retired doctors and practicing dentists, have given up on volunteering to administer the coronavirus vaccination because of the stupid bureaucratic nonsense surrounding the process.

Top officials in the NHS have insisted that urgent cancer operations will not be scrapped in order to free up beds for coronavirus patients.  Methinks they doth protest too much.

Meanwhile, a recent nationwide opinion poll shows that if there were a general election now, Boris Johnson’s Government would be thrown out on its ear, and he would lose his own parliamentary seat, all because of the mismanagement of the coronavirus crisis.

You couldn’t make it up.

Two Thousand Miles from Christmas

’tis the season of peace on Earth and goodwill to all men
not any more it isn’t

Do you remember Christmases past?  The happy anticipation of family visits.  The simple pleasure of meeting a few friends in your favourite pub.  You can forget all that.  Anyone who has any fun this year is going against official government guidelines.

Still, this isn’t a negative song at all.

If you take the lyrics in a Christmas Spirit.
