We’re all in the big numbers now Adding up the damage Britain’s Covid19 policies have caused

It is the end of the affair. We are no longer at epidemic levels of covid19 prevalence in the UK (0.27% of the population infected, where 0.4% is the low end required to be “epidemic”), and all-cause deaths have slipped back below average.

Source: Office for National Statistics, 15 May 2020 [CLICK TO ENLARGE]

It seems a good time to look back on the extraordinary past few weeks and try and draw conclusions.

First: who has the disease killed?

Covid19 targets the old and the sick; this is not to be callous, but to understand the enemy and to provide context. The average age of those dying of covid19 in the UK is over 80, and fully a third are residents of care homes where average “stay” (a euphemism I’m afraid) was only 30 months from admission before the virus anyway.

Our statistics agencies are only now following Italy’s lead and publishing the comorbidities of those dying from covid19, and it is now clear just how extreme is the amplification of risk. 95% of victims dying with covid19 have serious pre-existing conditions: not just background illnesses, but severe enough to be mentioned as causes of death on death certificates.

The most prevalent are dementia and diabetes (a quarter of cases, each), hypertension (a fifth) and serious lung, kidney or heart disease (around a sixth each). In both the UK and Italy, the average victim had three comorbidities severe enough to be causes of death on a certificate.

Second: who hasn’t it killed?

Parents, unions and nervy adults fret about the risk, but there is little need. With no serious pre-existing conditions, the young-ish and healthy are far more likely to be hit by lightning (49 occurrences per annum in UK) than to die of covid19 (33 in England under age 40, of which only 3 under the age of 19).

Panning out, among healthy under 60s (i.e. children and the vast majority of our working population), 253 people have died of covid19 in English hospitals; this compares to 400 (non-suicide) drownings per year in the UK.

And taking all age-groups where there are no pre-existing conditions serious enough to be mentioned as contributary causes of death, covid19 has taken about 2/3rds the lives that British roads do every year, and we wouldn’t think of outlawing driving, swimming or going outside in a storm.

Even taking all deaths where covid19 is mentioned on the death certificate regardless of age or comorbidities, looking at the total toll: 43,000 lives is less than 2018’s excess winter deaths and would count as a bad, but by no means remarkable, influenza year.

Scientific Context

Imperial College haven’t had a good war, and after their performance in other recent epidemics perhaps they will now pass their mantle onto another team. Preferably one that can code to levels fit for publication, never mind policy: it is increasingly awkward to hear the Prime Minister quoting their forecast that, were it not for lockdown, the UK could have been looking at half a million deaths when, at the tail-end of the epidemic, there are only 320,000 deaths worldwide.

But there is more to science than models, and the most accurate analysts were those who relied on other pillars of science than complicated models when input parameters were close to unknown (“garbage in, garbage out”).

Science does not only proceed from models after all: it also has, inter alia, experiments, defaults (“null hypotheses”), controls and historical context.

In mid-March, Stanford’s Nobel laureate Michael Levitt (biophysicist and professor of structural biology) discussed the “natural experiment” of the Diamond Princess cruise ship, a virtually perfect sealed petri-dish disproportionately filled with the most susceptible age and health groups.

Even here, despite the virus spreading uncontrolled onboard for at least two weeks, infection only reached 20% of passengers and crew (an “upper bound” to infection levels?); Levitt concluded that we must have high levels of innate immunity that can clear the virus.

And using very simple mathematics (not “15,000 lines of uncommented code” like Neil Ferguson) he demonstrated that the virus’s spread had never been exponential but rather has been running out of steam from day one. Who listened?

The eccentric biostatistician Knut Wittkowski came at things from a different angle, the “null hypothesis” angle – a default, in layman terms.

In the absence of evidence to the contrary, he assumed that covid19 was a normal viral respiratory disease, and at the end of March wrote a compelling but neglected paper showing how the emerging data backed up his view that “respiratory diseases [including covid19]… remain only about two months in any given population”.

This can be seen in the first graph at the top of this article showing the UK’s epidemic, but is illustrated more clearly by a simple “what-if” thought-experiment: respiratory viral diseases generally peak in mid-winter, and covid19 is very unusual to be killing people with a peak at Easter.

If we simply move covid19 deaths from spring to winter, the death-toll and the extent of the epidemic is put in the context of recent bad (but not dramatic) influenza years.

Source: ONS, prior years’ population inflated to current level to compare “apples with apples”.

Remember the killer flu of 2000, and the lockdown after the Millenium super-spreader events? Me neither. Covid19 might not be “just flu”, but that’s because there’s no “just” about flu.

We also have ‘controls’, since not all countries have behaved the same. Neither Sweden nor Japan have locked down so, if the lockdown hypothesis were true, Stockholm would by now be a morgue and Greater Tokyo (population 38 million) a necropolis.

In Sweden, Professors Giesecke and Tegnell have managed the epidemic within Sweden’s healthcare capacity without suspending civil liberties or shutting down schools or society (Sir Patrick Vallance’s “Plan A”), with no greater death-toll than our own. The Free Swedes pointed out all along that lockdown would be much easier to get into than out of: no kidding, we’re in an eel-trap.

The final scientific datum would have been historical context. The media has not pointed out that the toll of covid19 is only 0.5% that of the 1918/1919 influenza, before the advent of antibiotics. Although possible, could Neil Ferguson’s attention-grabbing estimate of twice the number of deaths for covid19 ever have been realistic when the parameters of the disease were largely unknown? I mean: what were the chances?

Oxford’s competing model, trumpeted in the press but attacked by their peers, looks like it will have been far more accurate, so it will be important in due course to ask: why?

Harm done

SAGE minutes make it clear that the public was explicitly petrified in order to ensure compliance with lockdown.

Mind-control is objectionable in itself, but has a real cost in lives: before a policy lever like lockdown was pulled, where was the cost/benefit analysis, or was SAGE only thinking of covid19?

Lockdown, after all, affects not just this thing over here (covid19) but also that thing over there (cancer, cardiac, sepsis, etc.).

Through lockdown, A&E cardiac admissions have been as much as 50% down, so around 5,000 people per month have not been turning up at hospital with heart attack symptoms; heart attacks outside hospital have only a 1-in-10 chance of survival. Same story with strokes. And downstream, many cancers are touch-and-go even if you catch them early; give them a two month head-start and Stanford’s Professor Bhattacharya estimates the impact of urgent cancer referrals running 70% below normal levels will be around 18,000 deaths.

Chris Whitty (CMO) warned two months ago of the toll of these “indirect deaths” (=’lockdown deaths’), and the figures are in: there have been over 13,000 non-covid excess deaths since the start of lockdown, of which over 12,000 in care homes. Can the scale of these figures in the context of the disease be remotely acceptable?

Politics

Where the inevitable enquiry highlights failings, let’s hope they will never be made again. An obvious smoking gun is the government guidance (until 12th March) that it was “very unlikely” that people in care homes will become infected with covid19.

It was already known from the Italian experience that this simply could not be the case given the disease’s target demographic; but as late as mid-April government policy was still for patients to be admitted to care homes from hospitals without requiring negative tests.

Bluntly, this is what South Korea (whose care homes instituted regular temperature checks on all residents with compulsory quarantine for anybody symptomatic, and with two consecutive negative tests required before re-admittance) and Germany (where hospitals are paid for each night a patient is retained, unlike “our” NHS) got right and the UK got lamentably wrong.

Lockdown’s political consequences will be dramatic. What of the impact on the “levelling-up” agenda? The lockdown will prove a peerless inequality wedge: many executives are still busy but a huge number of the lower-waged millions think they’re furloughed but will soon find they’re unemployed.

And consider education: it’s increasingly clear that schools should never have closed (so why aren’t they immediately re-opened?), and although private schools have maintained a full curriculum through lockdown, elsewhere many children will have missed out on half a year’s education by September with the damage incalculable.

The damage to the economy is calculable, but dizzying: an extra £300 to 500 billion deficit (let me help you: 10 to 15 Brexit bills, with lockdown now costing a Brexit bill per week) will mean higher taxes, higher borrowing and therefore (the other side of the equation) less investment.

Geographically, investment will refocus where it always made sense, not in the locations where, politically, it is most needed. If the lockdown tanker isn’t turned around soon, the “northern powerhouse” agenda will wither on the vine and the mortar is already falling out of the Red Wall. (Sorry for the mixed metaphors but you get the point.)

Next time

Kids can’t make it through a day at school without having “growth mindset” hammered into them, so let’s acknowledge failings and learn lessons from this shambles, and make sure that the next epidemic meets defences ready to resist it:

  1. The Nightingales: is there a case to have spare hospitals mothballed and dust-sheeted, ready at a moment’s notice for the inevitable next time, rather than having to put the rest of the NHS into hibernation during an epidemic at such cost to life? Of course, this is no good without the staff, so:
  2. Remember the 750,000-strong ‘NHS volunteer army’: would basic annual training (like a medical Territorial Army) allow us to hit future epidemics with phalanxes of trained staff ready to go?
  3. Given the high incidence of asymptomatic spread, contact-tracing can’t work with this virus notwithstanding the horlicks made of setting up the NHSX app. But perhaps the next killer, the “disease X”, will be amenable to such an approach, and we should have the app and other tracing measures ready to go at a moment’s notice.
  4. PPE: how on earth could we run out so early in an epidemic? And treatment protocols changed during the epidemic such that the ventilators weren’t needed; but maybe they will be next time.
    Let’s not be caught on the hop again.

For now: we’re bamboozled with daily changes to the semi-mystical R number (cognoscenti have moved onto Z-scores), but dig below the surface and it’s clear that transmission is now mostly within care homes and hospitals (up to 20% of infections are now nosocomial), and even there it is in rapid retreat.

So why on earth is civil society still locked down?

Boris Johnson’s hero was not famous for “grandmother steps”, and it is clearer every day that (despite the polls) the lockdown is causing more harm than good; Churchill would grit his teeth, rip the plaster off, and get the country back to school and back to work.

The “killed by lightning” comparison is slightly off, in that it’s comparing the total figure for lightning deaths and the number of Covid-19 deaths in a specific age range. It should be comparing the numbers in the same age range at risk from both threats. If you do that, then instead of “far more likely to be killed by lightning” you get “a similar risk to being killed by lightning” for the 20-40 age range in good health, and “far more likely to be killed by lightning” for the 0-19 age range in good health. I just mention this because people will pick up on it.

The George Floyd murder in the USA could be regarded as a Covid death, in the sense that the police arrogance and unaccountability, often present before the virus, is only increased in lockdown conditions in which cops are often the only people allowed to move around freely.
In Turkey, police beat youths loitering in front of their homes in Zeytinburnu, Istanbul. People in the apartment block opposite hooted in derision and threw eggs at the police. I believe the incident was filmed. The examples of police arrogance could be multiplied around the globe, aggravated by lockdowns.

Since the lockdown response is way out of proportion to the covid-19 threat, it is clear that covid-19 is the excuse, not the reason, for the lockdown.

And if our governments are so determined to put us into lockdown, despite all reason, faithful men most pray lest faithless men be provoked to desperate acts.

The article moves right past any acknowledgement, or basic investigation, of the obvious super national coordinated, world-wide, social conditioning psyop dimension, right to fantasy world “next time” preparations. As if the “but how will we pay for it” narrative won’t be back in vogue when/if that discussion ever arrives. Not to mention all presupposed by the notion that ruling class (or the broader population to be fair) actually gives a single chat about any of the covid deaths (which brings up other absurdities like the seemingly normalization of the notion of moral ranking of causes of death). I am not familiar with the author but the article comes off as mealy-mouthed limited hangout equating to “oops, we done goofed up a bit” and “we’ll do better next time” (notice any parallels to Iraq?). Frankly, this sounds like a closet globalist apologist spin. Among the many critical omissions how about some discussion around the suspected (for anyone who is paying attention) coming subsequent pandemic “WAVES”? I wonder if the Gates Foundation PR perp’s labelled this one “Pandemic I” by chance??? Not a good sign for OFFG.

Does the lockdown with less infection mean less herd immunity? A good crop for next winter’s flu season? Even more reason for having a vaccine? Sounds like a good business model to me. I must get hold of my broker….

“Herd immunity” is just a mathematical model, like Ferguson’s model, but maybe a bit better. The most renowned specialist in infectius diseases in the world, Prof. Didier Raoult does not take it into consideration.
He has been saying since the beginning that this new virus just might go away with the coming of Spring and it might never return, like SARS-1.

It is in fact disappearing. And there is so far no proof it will be back.

Serological studies show that on average a few percent of the population were exposed to SARS-CoV-2 with over 20% in the hotspots. It is disappearing without herd immunity which would require much more than that.

Herd immunity, some say, is a vaccine business term. You need to vaccinate a lot to protect the very few that can’t be vaccinated. Dr. Birx recently affirmed just this [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4l_jUZ515Zg&feature=emb_logo].

I love the covid 1984 moniker! Yes I thought herd immunity came from~ disease sweeps through population, some get it and become immune,some fight it off gaining immunity and then there’s not much left,though some die from being near death anyway. Arguing with true believers on local forum,I had to check up and lo and behold the official meaning is vaccinated immunity, that was first and then (grudgingly) immunity by recovery. So I guess it did creep in from the industry. I’m shocked at the way everyone has succumbed to all this nonsense in spite of being aware of the level of brainwashing for longer than I care to admit. What concerns me is how to avoid vaccination.

And now 120 international experts in infectious disease and epidemiology have written to The Lancet demanding that this crudely falsified ‘study’ be withdrawn. BigPharma and even more sinister forces want vaccines, with ‘nano-particle adjuvants’, a term appearing more and more often. A cheap medical cure for the disease at its early stages MUST be destroyed, come what may. The WHO ordered Indonesia to cease using HCQ on the basis of this crude fraud, but India told them to get stuffed, having found NO significant side-effects to HCQ use.

You will be in a wrecked economy caused by the elected puppets of your choice [depending on where you live on the big blue ball]. The puppeteers will be hounding away with what remains in cripto-crap post filthy lucra. Well who’d ‘ave thowght it?

And the new normal will not be the happy clappy, let’s save the government in blighty, sorry NHS, that we thought it would be. You realise that the fear mongers had driven us all to out wits end with no way out! Dam! Just when you thought the Gov were looking out for us.

I’m not sure there is a vaccine for all of this, ’cause Boris’s brain Dom [the coming and going genius] hasn’t yet thought of an exit strategy. Pretty much like there’s no Brexit strategy – and there never was.

That’s the problem with genius’* they only think of themselves and their own wealth, sorry perspective.

But clearly a deal struck with GSK in Barnard Castle will no doubt mean Dom’s looked after. Clap for Dom he’s done a bostin’ deal for himself. Boris won’t sack him and he won’t resign, what would be the point?

Yeah, the “only” true science is hindsight, hehe, and this article summs it up, and confirms that we where never wrong, of corse, the problem sometimes is that we more or less gets the info from the same source as everybody do, but then to differentiate the so called facts to what actually is happening can and sometimes will take time, I have even made that mistake my self, but I blame that on the lack of divertment on the MSM or whom ever we take out info from, this days you cant relie on some few sources you need to scan everything, and in this uh…epidemic it took a while before other opinions managed to penetrate what we call the MSM, incl fecebook to YT, and now, they hunt everybody down, and cencures them all, and to me surpirce even ZH have an simipare article and as said before, just to take an ex. even ZH can come up with something desent and they do, but you have to wade thru an quag mire of propaganda and manure to find them.

To me this is indeed just an sad day, and the destruction, is jaw dropping, the economy in a nation like Norway whom stil is toed into the “we are all going to die” next week or something, and in the comentary field they have gone total retard, and nobody is defient to the propaganda nonsense the MSM feeds them, and the row of experts is growing, and everybody awaits the savious, the Gates of Hell, to come and lift out nation from our missery and near death expirience suforcating everything this days.
But I am afraid they will not go easily, the momentum is everything the MSM focuses upon, incl an wast array of drivel to attack the Sweds, whom as others, did not do as South Korea, safeguard the people that was most lightly to be infected and the Sweds admitted it, and thats why their numbers went thru the roof, but as the graph above, its not in any way much worse than previous “epidemics”, incl in Norway.
But somehow that truth is not managing to penetrate anything in Norway, its beyond comprehension, the insanity is staggering high and all encompasing, facts dont bite on people driven into insanity.
Yeah, its infact to be frank, hillarious, I am in awe everytime I open an article in our “eminet” MSM this days and if I bother, to read the coments, witch is even worse.
Are we simply degenerated to such an extent that comon sense is dead and gone, makes one wounder.

But, you see OffG, never doubt your self if you feel that you are seeing the truth regadeless of the “facts” we are given, when you realise the numbers, inconsistencys, etc to images, are fudged, keep climbing, I am used to that, this case is not unique, but this case sould be an tour de force into how deeply the MSM and their control over narratives indeed are, dont frat about that because this case do confirm that, and the MSM control over our perseption of their induced reality.
I just as in some case if I am in doubt, I recomend to be patient, paitient is indeed an virtue, and let the case evolve and then when you have sufficient “hunches” start to find what is the oposits, always pays, dont rush.
Yeah, but dont expect miracles, but I know this is fizling out and eventually we will have normality regained, but the fight is NOT over.
Have an nice day and take care.

Matt Hancock, the Health Secretary, at the 10 April 2020 Coronavirus Daily Update, admitted that the government had not made any attempt to assess how many people would die as a result of the “lockdown” measures. This was an implicit admission that the government’s approach to policy-making on this issue was irrational, irresponsible and incompetent. However, having adopted this approach, the government placed itself in a public relations nightmare. The “lockdown” measures are more harmful than the disease. But government ministers – no matter how soon they noticed this – are hardly going to say: “Ooops! We made a mistake. Sorry about that. We should never have violated your rights and liberties, trashed the economy and caused incalculable harm that will have lasting effects for decades to come. Sorry.” Having made such a disastrous, unnecessary decision, they are stuck with it and will stay with it until they can think of some plausible narrative that allows them to represent themselves as the heroes who saved the nation, if not the world.

These are the BIG numbers for Portugal!

age/deaths/confirmed cases/%D/CC
Age group 60-69 of 3409 “confirmed” cases 118 died – 3,5%
Age group 70-79 of 2501 “confirmed” cases 258 died – 10,3%
Age group 80+ of 897 “confirmed” cases 258 897 – 20,2%

They still don’t publish the data for comorbidities but we just need to look at other data to know that most of these subjects have at least one. We also know from other studies that the vast majority of the population has a very weak immune system (deficiency of vitamin C and D and other minerals are prevalent). These groups are also the target of INFLUENZA vaccination campaigns! And these groups are also the target of the doctors, via over prescription of drugs.

They have ALL the goodies necessary to succumb even to a very weak piece of RNA like the “new” “SARS-C oV-2”, and they do.

But… the important part of this, is that THEY DON’T KNOW ABOUT THIS REALITY, and even if someone tells them they still BELIEVE in the STATE propaganda and obey its orders.

https://www.nationalgeographic.com/science/2020/02/what-happens-to-coronavirus-covid-19-in-warmer-spring-temperatures/
“Flu season” generally lasts from October to April or March. Scientists have a number of theories for why that is. Some suggest it’s closer quarters—to escape the cold weather, people cluster indoors, where human-to-human transmission becomes more likely”

Sounds like a good reason for lock down

If one months lock down is expensive. Is two months lock down twice as expensive or more. Maybe some one could make a model to calculate all of the factors and predict the cost multiplier. What about three months or four months.

Here in South Wales it looks like we are going to get at least an extra month more than England.

The lock down started slowly in January with air travel advice then flight restrictions.
Covid-19 was classified as High Consequence Infectious Disease in the UK in January before a single case of Covid-19 in the UK.
In February the first cases in the UK with initial government advice.
In March the 5th Covid-19 was made a notifiable disease in the UK. So has to be put on death certificates.
The Governments stated reason is the strangest. They claim it was on the instance business worried about insurance claims that Covid-19 was made a notifiable disease in the UK.
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-51730412
Without this decision there would be ZERO Covid-19 cases on death certificates.
On March the 19th Covid-19 is downgraded in seriousness it is no longer a High Consequence Infectious Disease in the UK
On the 20th March pubs and cubs ordered to close.
On the 23rd March full lock down

The very slow easing of lock down . When will pubs and clubs re-open. In July or August. What about flights September , October. Maybe November in Wales.

Just in time for next winters instalment.

I ran out of toilet paper and had to start using old newspapers. Times are rough.

Cobblers!

Bare faced lying manipulation by the author.

If we simply move covid19 deaths from spring to winter, the death-toll and the extent of the epidemic is put in the context of recent bad (but not dramatic) influenza years.

That is the ‘ abracadabra’ spell dressed in utter moronic science and maths which is being pushed here to make fools of any who believe it.

In this instance we are not being asked to believe 2 plus 2 makes 5, no the mastermind is actually selling :

2+2= 2!

Such absurd, idiotic invention – they are having a laugh, while people are dead who shouldn’t be -and their funerals have been basic – the arch villain Dominic ‘Dr Strangelove The creator of BS daleks’ Cummings, does what he likes, when he likes and his BS daleks approve totally. 2+2 =2 they screach in agreement.

If you don’t understand than just read that manipulation again slowly and see when the ‘pea’ is disappeared – when moving the excess deaths back a ‘few months’ the actual deaths from that time are ‘lost’ !
Last winters flu spike is disappeared!

That spike is missing the actual deaths and would be nearly twice as big!

See they are resorting to barefaced LIES.

Line up the flying blue monkey army trolls , to drown the truth and echo 2+2=2!

Oh dear, two points on this seemingly emotion fuelled “analysis”.

The “winter flu spike” had no covid related deaths, therefore is not part of the “pandemic” and logically not added to the “pandemic” peak for any meaningful analysis of its unique temporal impact.

Secondly if you care to look at the figures on Euromomo you will find the excess death “winter flu spike” on week 2 of 2020 was 2,465. The excess death “pandemic” peak on week 14 was 31,547. Even with the wonky logic of adding ordinary flu deaths into the covid “pandemic” you only have 34,012 a 7.8% increase in the peak which wouldn’t significantly alter the analysis as given.

Yeah, the maths is a bit harder to do than 2+2, but worth having a go at it before venting your sound and fury and ending up signifying nothing.

If the mid-winter of 2019/20 had a bad flu season and excess deaths were high, then there would be some validity in your comments that this has to be taken into account. But there wasn’t and isn’t. Indeed in all probability 40,000 elderly people with comorbidities who would have died this last mid winter when a bad flu struck, were all still alive when covid-19 came calling. In reality they have had an extra 4 months or so of life by the timing of the bad respiratory disease this year.
Under these conditions it is perfectly reasonable to compare excess deaths from the covid-19 period with similar respiratory disease periods. The maximum increase of excess death over the covid period compared to recent seasonal flu periods is 15%. Of course if the you go back a few years and decades the flu seasons were far more deadly.

2. lockdown’s political consequences will be dramatic – in what way? with a nation still living everyday in fear who knows whether the lockdown will ever finish? do you think the elites even care about consequences?

3. ‘learn the lessons’ – famous last words of an apologist – this is a comedy skit, no?

4. What is civil society – us, the plebs or the celebrity based intelligensia – most of whom want the lockdown to continue

HONESTLY?????

This article is a perfect example why, when reading a scientific paper, one should look only at the methods and the results and make up his own mind on the conclusions.

The comparisons of death with Covid compared with death due to lightning, drowning and driving are very insightful. So are the comparisons with seasonal flu.

But the conclusions about wearing an app, etc and that one should follow the example of Churchill simple doesn’t follow from the results.

The technical term for this fallacy is: non-sequitur (it doesn’t follow)

I have occasionally in my history, convinced my boss -look we need some more people here – so she passes my request to Senior Management..You have got the budget..so I put the ad out, and I am drowned with loads of paper…but I read it all (well a bit) and of the best, I asked them to come for an interview, and asked them a question. They were probably expecting to see someone old, suited and booted, but it was me at 24 asking the questions. I could spot the talent straight away. I could tell this guy about the same age as me from Edinburgh – travelled to Mancherster for the interview is completely amazing.

So we hired Brian. Very good looking young man.

I hope he is well. Apart from my eldest brother, probably the cleverest person , I have ever met.

A new Distributed Array Processor being built in Ashton_U_Lyne, near Oldham, Lancashire (International Computers Limited) (near Manchester)

How do we test that? It runs in 3D a bit like a human brain. No one had done this before.

He said knew a bit of Fortran, which was more than me.

I wanted the best. They said OK – has he got a place to stay?

I suggested full relocation expenses. They said – he’s only 23.

Listen Again

I suggested full relocation expenses, from Edinburgh to Manchester or he will probably go and work for IBM in Waterlooville. This guy is good. They said O.K. and a few years later fired me.

Best move I ever made, though it was tough for a bit, and I was not expecting it.

I met another girl in Lancashire and less than a year later we both moved to London

We didn’t know anyone, but our broad loud friendly Lancashire accents, were never a problem, and we soon met loads of new London friends.

If you just do your best to keep a smile on your face, and encourage, and be honest with your new team, you might be appreciated a bit, as we all get fired again, and now have to do something else

Our Spuds and Broccoli in our garden are completely amazing.

We plan to go on a long hike along the River Mole tomorrow or Wednesday (self distancing) It is not muddy, and it is incredibly beautiful.

Got to Keep fit.

I wish the pubs were open. Sometimes we get lost in Surrey, and after 5 or so miles walking in the heat..see a pub, just dying for a pint of anything (old watering hole) and they’ve shut down all the pubs. Who are these people. It has never happened in England before. You might have to wait till 5:30, but they still let you in, especially if you have got a dog (we haven’t – got 3 cats though)

Why not just ignore all the rules and reopen all the country pubs?

Lets get back to normal.

Knock on the Door.

I find it absolutely incredible how easy the British public have just rolled over during this farce.

This is indeed a psyop on the British public but even with the hard data and evidence presented to people they just refuse to accept it.

It’s almost as if the public seem completely oblivious to what’s going to happen next and are almost begging the government to keep them in lockdown.

All over the world there are mass protests as many people in these countries are aware of the impending economic doom the governments response to this virus has caused.

Whilst it’s very likely there will be mandatory vaccinations, health passports, state surveillance, what’s absolutely certain is economic catastrophe. There will be hundreds of thousands of job losses, surge in mental health issues, rise in cost of living, excess mortality due to treatments and diagnoses missed and it’s going to be next to impossible to receive health care.

As human beings we all look forward to our social outings. How is that going to be possible in the future? Who wants to sit in a bar or a restaurant 2 metres apart? No one will do it.

What about theatres and concerts . How will they be possible?

Sport- who really wants to watch football, golf or any sports in pure silence as no fans.

The expected rise in taxes, no jobs, rise in prices is going to lead to most people not being able to have a great quality of life.

Have people not thought of this?

This is not the new normal- it’s abnormal.

Its very sad as the majority of people are just blinded by fear.

When people ask me for my opinion on current matters I always say the same thing-
Before all this would you have believed anything the Chinese government said?
Would you believe anything the MSM say?
Would you believe anything a politician says?
If the government said we are doing something because we care about you would you believe them?

Every single person said of course not and then just carry on talking about the official narrative.

We live in an age of incredible stupidity and thank you Off Guardian for your calming daily dose of perspective.

Paul, sadly you are right on the money. Fortunately down here in Oz we seem to be getting put of a less stringent lockdown with the exception of the Marxist state of Victoria where power has gone to the head of the slow educated moron of a premier. But still I’m amazed that many of us took the 1.5 metre rule seriously. Fear and greed remain the main motivators and governments can prey on their victims through fear. I think it was Frederic Bastiat who opined about economic decision making by taking into account “what can be seen” and “what cannot be seen”. That is make a decision purely on what you can see, a pandemic, but not taking into account the hidden ramifications, the “its the economy stupid”.

The generations of common sense have either gone or are going. Those that remain will be manipulated without even knowing it. Sad, really sad but they will not listen so on their heads be it!

I think it works better in relatively prosperous “Western” societies. Not as well in the Third World. There the state brutality tends to be more obvious and genuine cooperation by fooled populace less available. Early on there were images of Nigerian policemen beating a woman in an attempt to “enforce” lockdown. Images of Turkish police beating kids for loitering outside their own homes during lockdown are proliferating.

It’s an example of very skillful manipulation, over decades but especially last few years.

MoA psychotic delusions continue. Now we learn from b that Johnson, who was admitted to NHS hospital with symptoms of mild cold and was put on ICU as a political stunt, almost died of COVID.

First Prime Minister Boris Johnson did not take the issue seriously and even boosted of shaking hands with coronavirus patients. He then caught the disease himself and nearly died from it. He has since been a bit more cautious.

That tells us how Eatonian elite is treated, measly common cold treated by wasting ICU bed.

Even MoA some long time worshipers called nonsense b is peddling.

One wonders how sick Boris was with the Coronavirus. Maybe Boris faked a bit for street cred.

The UK with its City of London Corporation is another power center for empire and Boris and his team are playing their part in support thereof…..when your god is finance, that fealty comes before health evidently

In response to a comment I made linked to previous article, an off-g commenter (sorry, can’t remember who) said that Boris was in a private part of the hospital, not NHS. And we know he wasn’t on a ventilator. I think we can conclude he wasn’t at death’s door. But certainly got a bit of public sympathy, and psychologically, a win on the “I know how serious this disease/infection/ thing is, so you’d better do as I say [fists clenched]( and not as I do, as I clearly wasn’t socially distancing before I got this thing, as observed in the House of Commons)”.

A lot of resentment has been caused by needlessly involving the police in what should be a community activity. The cops in the illustration are definitely not your traditional British policeman, they’ve got that paramilitary look, they’re not the community looking after itself but the government telling people how to behave and making damn sure they do. Its just not necessary. I live in California where like the rest of the US the police are armed to the teeth. Yet they’ve deliberately chosen not to harass people. Why? They openly state that its not their job, all the social distancing and the like needs to be enforced by the community. They also acknowledge that heavy handed policing would be a PR disaster.

This ‘light touch’ has meant that for many of us life goes on pretty much as normal. Sure, lots of places are not open, going the grocery store need planning and so on but people do outdoors for exercise and now our beaches are open. (They were only closed because of crowds — there would never have been an incident like the one where the cops harassed a lone woman on a remote Welsh beach.) We all want to get on with our lives, we want people out and about, and we’re doing what we can to gradually open everything up. (Ignore the political pandering stuff — “FREE whatever”. That’s people being silly.)

This complaint about Covid isn’t really about Covid. Its about heavy handed policing, a “one rule for us nice people, another for the plebs”. Its about people learning that they aren’t ‘free’ in any sense, they live in a tightly regulated society and they’re not the people doing the regulating, they’re the regulated. Suck it up and fix the politics (you did vote for this BS last December, didn’t you?) but don’t ignore the virus — its not something to be paranoid about but a wise person takes appropriate precautions.

Please support the new legal action against the lockdown, social distancing, testing etc. in the UK that will lead to the failure of lockdowns, social distancing, testing and coronavirus vaccine policy around the world.

Covid 1984 Plandemic (stage 1) is a well orchestrated and executed global PSY-OP and good people at offG and ukcolumn.co.uk have done an excellent job in exposing it. When talking about post plandemic death rates, cancer accounts for more than a quarter (28%) of all deaths in the UK. There are around 165,000 cancer deaths in the UK every year,

    that’s around 450 every day

. I have absolutely no doubt that most cancer casualties in the UK during this plandemic have Covid-19 on their death certificates.

Never, ever, for one second (did I say Never) believe the ‘official’ narrative on this great psyop, pehaps the greatest psyop since 9/11.

Warning! Any Covid-19 ‘test’ involving PCR or similar DNA dependent techniques will result in you being unwittingly ‘profiled’ and added to a database.

When you consent (consent is key) to having a buccal swab or other DNA sample taken for testing by a Government agency (even the NHS or a contractor appointed by the Government) is will not, repeat will not, remain ‘private and confidential’.

Remember, many people have already discovered (and some even been arrested) that so called ‘Ancestry’ or ‘Health’ DNA checks are not private and confidential – the Intelligence agencies (particularly MI5 and the CIA) and international Police (ie Interpol and the FBI) can, and have obtained profiles and full personal details from those submitting profiles.

There have already been some genuine leaks, amongst the speculation, regarding a global DNA database for everyone – not just criminals (to compliment the already shared national police databases and national police fingerprint databases, and national police archives, and of course the electronic NHS / Health records that seemingly anyone with a pass code can read).

The Covid-19 ‘test’ appears to be a way of getting the mass population to consent to giving a DNA sample, and as this is an international affair, and as the Police and Governments have prior history of compiling massive databases, it is reasonable to assume that his is a ‘back door’ or legal loop hole to begin such a database.

Remember, when the CIA came up with a facial recognition system, and began linking street cameras, and then CCTV cameras to thier facial recognition database, what did they do to populate the system and fine tune the algos and AI? They went to Facebook – that voluntary database of your face, your family, and your frients and associates (CONTACT TRACING LITE it was called initially – can you believe that!).

So, the Government have your:

1) All personal details as recorded and filed under you national Insurance number
2) All your financil details due that NI number and the requirement that you have a bank account for tax / pay / salary / benefits
3) All your medical records and history
4) All your academic and formal education history
5) Records of all fines and convictions
6) Your face if you have ever applied for a photo driving licence or passport, and now even Universal Credit (and not to mention from facial recognition cameras and facebook)
7) Well, I could keeep on and on with this, especially if you have shopping loyalty cards, and email account, and ISP, etc

The important thing is that all they lack is your DNA profile to go onto thier database (fingerprints are so last century, but if you have smartphone with a fingerprint lock they will have your fingerprints too).

So, consentual DNA submission is the aim. Ancestor tracing, Health check profiling and so forth have been trialed and used, but it has had very low uptake (they may make it free like Facebook) so its now time for your ‘FREE’ PCR (DNA profile) Covid-19 ‘Test’.

Remember, never believe the official narrative (did I already say that?).

This article may be worth a read:
https://www.aier.org/article/the-2006-origins-of-the-lockdown-idea/

It would seem that the idea of social distancing originates from a 14 year old girl and the lockdown by computer simulation modelers some 14 years back and that doctors fought these insane ideas.

The more you learn about what is going on, the more incredible it seems. Also, this complete takeover by what most people appear to consider science, but is not, and mathematical models is dehumanizing: it is in the first place dehumanizing those doing it, even to some extent those trying to give less unrealistic models and prognostics. All are forgetting the human beings, who just remain points on a graph, or numbers in some statistics, are no longer able to deal with the purely human.

In the last days I was told of the death of someone I knew well, from a heart attack because doctors in a hospital refused to attend to him (he knew something was wrong with him, so he’d gone to the hospital) and sent him away because he did not have covid, and he died unattended shortly after. Then apart from his wife, none of the family was allowed to attend the funeral, as a result one of them is having a breakdown, and all are on the own in different regions, and have no right to be all together. The priest at the funeral appears to have been to frightened to even support the lonely wife. When I related this to some people I know, apart from one person (but then she’s got cancer and is equally not being treated properly, so knows the situation), not a single person showed dismay, my learned colleagues least of all, and either they doubled down justifying this as normal, and did not even say once ”Im sorry, this is terrible”, or just did not even reply.

I fear we are being transformed each of us into monsters, people who only yesterday were caring, and appeared human, have lost their basic humanity, all in 2 months… That is what is scary. I think thats what we should debate, just stop with all those meaningless numbers, always numbers (I should add Ivspent most of my life as a mathematician, so Im not belittling mathematics, but its utter misuse, and the way it is dehumanizing people).

@ Hope,

Social-Distancing (or ‘Antisocial Distancing in non-Orwellian standard English) is one of the most destructive and downright evil aspects of this Psyop.

It is particularly damaging to children (intensionally so I believe).

So far we have seen children become actually villified as, quote, “Assymtomatic Super-Spreaders”.

Just today (Bank Holiday Monday) I saw x3 families with children turned away from a garden centre I was lining up to eventually enter. I was discusted by this vilification and walked away from the garden centre and drove to another one, only to see that garden centre turn away a woman with a toddler too!

This comes after I saw a local supermarket with a sign outside saying ‘no under 16s due to Covid-19’. Seriously, what the heck are people doing ‘banning’ children!

So far,

1) All schools have been shut to prevent the ‘assymptomatic super-spreaders’ from interacting.

2) Playgrounds and playcentres have been closed or roped off to prevent the ‘assymptomatic super-spreaders’ from interacting.

3) Grandparents and relatives have been told to avoid the ‘assymptomatic super-spreaders’ and worse, many children have been told they cant visit Grandma or Grandpa because ‘you might make them sick and they may die’. What? telling kids they are Ganny Killers, what the heck!

4) Supermarkets are not children inside.

5) Garden Centres are literally ‘banning’ children – witnessed this vile discrimination myself!

6) Teachers Unions telling the government that children are all potential ‘assymptomatic super-spreaders’ and a risk to thier members.

7) Parents telling the government they will not send THEIR children to school in June because OTHER children may be ‘assymptomatic super-spreaders’ and infect thier children, who will in turn infect them, and who will in turn infect Granny who may die!

Just what the heck are we doing to the Children!

Now we are told that our children will be given priority for any new UNVALIDATED and not properly tested ‘vaccine’ of potential death, because yes, you guessed it – Children are potential ‘assymptomatic super-spreaders’.

The above, combined with the crazy, mindless, evil even, photographs of young children made to sit in isolation in hoops on the ground, or on spray painted X’s, or in taped off areas where ‘teachers’ (psychological torturers more like) ‘socially distance’ whilst wearing masks and gloves (as if they are dealing with plague carriers in an assylum) and we are setting up an entire generation for serious psychological issues in the future.

Social distancing should be called what is – it is Antisocial-Distancing.

Children are our future, they are NOT ‘assymptomatic super-spreaders’!

Please people, help stop this madness – it has gone way too far!

The ruling class, truly, behind the electoral extravanganza and partisan theatre, are all psychopaths. They see the rest of us and the earth and other lifeforms as objects. We can all be exploited and manipulated so satiate their desires for wealth and power.

If you really want to go down the rabbit hole and look into the bleak abyss that is our reality just follow the Epstein trail. Or Saville across the pond. The royals. The intelligence agencies. Israel. The governments. The media. The UN. They’re all in on it. They kindnap and rape children. And it’s just swept under the rug. And no one is held accountable. Because they control every level of the state. And they use the sexual terrorism of children to blackmail anyone or might become a threat. And they kill the rest who they can’t control.

Its been this way for centuries. From the conquistadors to the colonialists to present day imperialism. They’ve gone around the world raping and pillaging and enslaving and murdering with impunity.

Most people are unwilling or unable to seek the truth let alone look at it and accept it when they find it, or it’s presented to them. I mean it really is almost unimaginably horrific, the rock bottom reality behind the seemingly endless layers of lies and illusions and distractions.

But we will not be free from these monsters and parasites until there’s enough of us who are willing to do just that, and to take responsibility to act upon it. And they, through this Plandemic, are waging an all out assault on humanity in order to tighten their grip even more, to concentrate the wealth and consolidate power and obtain nearly total control over society.

Before they unleashed the Virus on us, millions of people all around the world, in countries on every continent were rising up to revolt against the globes capitalist system, the debts and austerity and inequality and corruption and injustice of it all. Now they’re ramming through tyrannical measures of mass surveillance and social control in the name of public health. Locking everyone in their homes, encouraging “social distancing”, “self-isolation”, “quarantine”, and instilling fear in people so that they mistrust eveyrone the cross paths with, in the microscopic possibility, pun intended, they might be infected. People are calling “snitch-lines” to rat on neighbors for having company. So much for all the solidarity that was building. So much for shared humanity. So much for mass protests.

And all the players giving us orders and advice and guidance and the like are all completely corrupt and compromised by conflicts of interest. The US and the U.K.

We need to expose these people and their techno-totalitarian future, the “new normal”, they have in store for us as many of our family members, friends, and neighbors as possible. The rushed vaccines and microchips and digital IDs and cashless currency and “reimagined” society with remote learning and telemedicine and 5G = permanent slavery and the end of humanity.

This is it. This is the fork. It’s now or never.

It is sad to see how easily manipulated many people are. The applied psychology used by unscrupulous behavioural scientists to achieve these results is extremely powerful. They deserve a special place in Hell.

If you ask their unwitting subjects why they behaved this way, they will say “I was just following orders.”. Sounds familiar doesn’t it?

There is hope though, Hope. The same psychological studies indicate that a significant minority will never succumb. There will be a chance to have our voices heard once the numbers are properly analysed, as the article intimates. Many people will hang their heads in shame.

I so hope you’re right. I so hope. As they say, history has the last laugh and its hard to know how we make it through the darkest times, how that minority’s actions and thoughts effect the whole… But it may demand incredible courage, depending on how far this rolls. We’ve all read of the heroic martyrs throughout history, of the many who stood up during ww2 in occupied nations… They indeed were just ordinary people like you and me. Will we have that courage if it comes to that? We’ve, at least my generation in Europe, has had such a comfortable, easy life, will any of us, be able to veritably stand up and say: “No, I refuse”.
Im not saying there arent, there were protests all round in the last years, and people all round were being beaten up, even killed by the police, for protesting… But it was the action of the desperate. The Paris Commune was a bloody fiasco. The middle classes, or the thinking parts of the middle classes, left them in the lurch. There was no leadership. Is there the possibility of leadership today? Someone like Gandhi, or Luther King? Im afraid I very much doubt it. There’s not even a Zola, nor a Tolstoy, to take up his pen to write “J’accuse”, or “Shame!” There are voices, but no powerful voice.

Time will tell. I have a feeling the coming financial collapse will provide the stimulus for many new dissenters. When people have little to lose they are prepared to take more risks, the potential rewards are orders of magnitude greater. There will be men and women who say “No!”, the Milgram experiment, among others, shows this.

The crash will also reduce the distance between the middle classes and the working classes. Both will have to endure equal hardship and this will be a chance to build solidarity between them in the struggle against the kleptocrats who have brought us to this present situation. The lie that the virus is causing the crash must be exposed as the fiction that it is, this is our opponents weakest point.

History shows us, and human social behaviour dictates, that a leader will emerge. “Cometh the hour, cometh the [wo]man.”. For now, we must all raise our own small voices and encourage others to speak out, softly if they are afraid, to build the chorus of dissent.

Many small voices speaking as one will build a powerful voice. A voice that can not be ignored, and that will also encourage a person with the latent potential for leadership to step forward.

I, for one, still believe that we can eventually triumph. They have gone too far with their lies this time and the ordinary people I am meeting and discussing this with are also beginning to see it.

Yes, I think you’re right. I think the economic collapse is actually our main hope.
Its cruel to say that, because hundreds of millions may well die of hunger. They may well have achieved the depopulation agenda they were after. In fact, the earlier people begin to resist and try to bring about a more humane society, the less number of people will die and suffer…
And indeed in this may bring the working and middle classes together.

I fear this dehumanizing has been going on for a much longer time. I remember when I spoke with a colleague on ISIS, a couple of years ago, who said it was a good idea to bomb Syria because of ‘ISIS’

It’s the Copernican revolution but then backwards where we are made to believe that we, as an individual, are all the center of the universe, instead of being part of a total entity. You can expect such a believe in a young child. But speaking about my fellow colleagues, who are all into numbers, they have never grown up. Thank God there are PhD students and fortunately experts (the ones who are into numbers) only form a tiny minority of the human race. Give them less influence, for instance by mocking their modeling, could be a way out of this.

I agree Willem. But Im thinking of people who you see analysed Syria and everything truthfully. People who know what goes on, and have in the case of those I am thinking about even outspoken about it all before.
As for the others, its always been the case that people cant understand and care much about whats going on elsewhere. Otherwise, frankly, Europe wouldnt have been incessantly involved in wars elsewhere directly or by proxy over the last few centuries. Populations themselves voted in such governments and dont care a hoot.
However, what is different this time is its happening to themselves: usually a callous person may not care what happens to others, but wants himself to be ok.
But possibly you’re right, the incessant silence and uncaring about others may have over the generations changed something fundamental in the people, so much so that they have self-depreciated themselves to the point that they are now themselves willing victims.

Couldn’t agree with your more, it’s the personal stories of tragedy that are important, and should arouse our empathy, and concern for the future because we’re not just numbers, we are all individuals with emotions, so many are going through hard emotional struggles right now, especially those in at risk groups, those with physical and / or mental illnesses who are struggling without support.

It was the cases of residents in care homes that especially concerned me, some of whom are not only locked in a home but, to stop them being a risk to or from others, are locked in a bedroom, without any visitors, for elderly people that may already have long term physical problems, and perhaps dementia too, that isolation is so awful, is this the reason deaths increased so rapidly, if the quality of life diminishes so much perhaps some lose that desire to carry on ? I know staff with work extra hard but you are limited for time between so many residents, and whilst there’s skipping and telephones not all will be able to use such thongs. It’s sad many may pass on without seeing their relatives in the last days, weeks or months of their lives, whilst it was hard seeing my mum gradually get worse I still felt it was important to see her to the end as much as I could.

For myself I ironically was glad to get furloughed as I have been ill for some time but having to work which I was finding touch, had a painful neck infection for 10 months now, so I’m glad I’m not having to work it at least, as I could not get a sick note with no formal diagnosis and pushing myself I could work. The doctors did some blood tests but couldn’t yet find the cause, now the pains are spreading to other parts of the body, my heart aches sometimes, and my head too, I take tramadol given by a friend as the doctors pain relief does nothing.

The doctors were going to refer me for a scan, to see what’s in my neck causing the pain whenever I move it, but a few months ago they said appointments all cancelled, a few weeks back as the pains are getting worse I asked again and a kind GP says she will ask hospital about the tests, to find the cause of my pain, to look for treatment, but that was weeks ago and no answer from them, so no appointments it seems.

Anyway, sorry for waffling on selfishly, at least my situation is not as bad as others, I manage to go out for a walk to the parks each day, been good at last to see crowds returning to the parks the last few days, my heart rejoices to see others playing and happy, but of course there’s always the lurking worry, what if my condition progresses, what if social distancing does ? I try not to think of the future, it does no good, just take one day at a time.

I’m applying to return to work as a care assistant, not sure if I’m well enough, but I feel I must try and do something at least, best wishes to you all, let’s not make predictions, but take each moment in our stride

Great article.

The German Public health system, one of the best, was not attacked in last decade as much as NHS was by devastating austerity measures, and hence in no point was even briefly overwhelmed by panicking public rushing into hospitals with slight cough and admitted to hospitals based on phony PCR tests positives as courageous German doctors and epidemiologists already in early March stand up against madness when their global and British colleagues kept their mouths shut up and took money. As a result in Germany official COVID dead count is today about 35% of this very season 2019/2020 flu-like deaths with no measurable all causes excess deaths.

Italian doctors soon after started disclosing how nearly destroyed local public health institutions in badly polluted Lombardy are virtually killing people due to many reasons like murderous WHO approved therapies and lockdown itself that forced abandoning of patients by foreign healthcare workers. American doctors followed suit as US protocols were as deadly resulting in 90% of all COVID patients put on invasive ventilators dead on NYC hospitals.

It was not a mistake it was simply mass murder of elderly and sick reminiscing of Nazi policies of eugenics purposefully inducing hundreds and thousands lockdown deaths to come in coming years in US and UK, EU alone due to deliberately orchestrated devastating economic depression to cover up truly historic $10+ trillions so far bailout of financial oligarchy.

Oligarchs have committed crime of mass murder of hundreds of thousands pensioners worldwide to cover up their financial crimes amid collapse of financial capitalism.

In case you weren’t aware, the above was based on the trial for attempted murder in which Jeremy Thorpe (Liberal Party leader) was acquitted. Wikipedia states:

At the 1979 Secret Policeman’s Ball, in aid of Amnesty International, the biased summing up speech by Mr Justice Cantley was parodied by Peter Cook.[168] The sketch was written and delivered shortly after the trial,[142] and was, according to Freeman and Penrose, “actually not that different from the original”.[169] The nine-minute opus, “Entirely a Matter for You”, is considered to be one of the finest works of Cook’s career. Cook and show producer Martin Lewis brought out an album on Virgin Records entitled Here Comes the Judge: Live of the live performance together with three studio tracks that further lampooned the Thorpe trial.[170]

Yes, I am old enough to have watched the Thorpe affair unfolding, it was hilarious enough in itself but the satire by Cook was in a league of it’s own. Imagine what he could do with this present charade.

My point about biased judgement in the fracking trial would also be rich material for this irreplaceable genius.
