8 Simple Steps To End The Lockdown: Say Yes, Not No

Kevin Smith & Lesley Buckley

To those paying attention, the evidence about Covid-19 and the lockdown response is clear. We’ve been sold a pup.

The UK Government itself has confirmed several times that the virus is not serious to the majority of people who catch it. The lockdown was a panic-driven overreaction.

The facts and figures of what is known about Covid-19 are not really much disputed. More, it’s a question of how those facts translate into ways to deal with the threat. My contention is that anyone looking at the facts, figures, and basic science cannot possibly agree that the response to the crisis is appropriate to the risk and proportionate in terms of wider implications.

For example, in the UK the infection rate has receded, there’s been no evidence of a link between infection rates and social distancing, lockdown, and the wearing of masks It’s all been guesswork.

Yet the UK government has just declared it mandatory for the public to wear masks on public transport from 15 June 2020. That makes no sense whatsoever. Even the World Health Organisation (WHO), from which the government cherry-pick their guidance to reinforce ‘trust the experts’ narratives, for months advised that it was not necessary to wear masks. The WHO curiously U-turned on this in recent days.

So far, most of the public aren’t picking up on these anomalies, or at least when they do, it doesn’t particularly register with them, perhaps because of the continued media avalanche of misinformation, distraction, and scaremongering.

If people are told by the media that social distancing works, they seem to accept it, even if a brief reflection would make them realise there’s no evidence that lockdown translates into lower infection rates, particularly when there are so many other factors and unknowns in play.

So, it’s not really about going over the facts and figures or science anymore. It’s about merely getting the obvious conclusions, so far largely kept from the public, out there.

Therefore, how do we achieve this and get out of this lockdown mess to begin repairing the terrible damage caused to date?

Just the other day, Professor Ferguson, whose forecasts were central to the lockdown decision, basically admitted that lockdown made no difference when it came to containing Covid-19.

Great, so we can go back to normal?

Unfortunately, this huge admission only made it to the middle pages of a few newspaper publications. The rest of the media missed the story and continued with their usual brain-dead output.

But, perhaps we can get the government to admit they acted upon wrong advice and the lockdown was a mistake?

Well, hold on there. No one likes to admit they’re wrong, particularly when the errors are huge and so stupid beyond belief. That’s never going to happen voluntarily, at least without some encouragement or a sweetener.

Perhaps, however, there’s a chance. The proposal below is simple and quick. It gets us out of lockdown without too much recrimination. And the idea may have further appeal to the government because it will give them a sense of ultimate power (we know they love that). Hopefully it will mean that we can all move forward – back to the old normal.

SYNN (Say Yes, Not No)

First, for background, I used to work for a company which was customer-facing and focused on customer service with a unique passion and pragmatism. The motto was something like “the customer is right, even when they are wrong”. As a complaints manager, there were sometimes difficult cases to resolve.

The company, however, began a new initiative. It was called SYNN (Say Yes, Not No), where we were encouraged to be even more flexible to resolve difficulties and complaints.

The complaint managers were issued with SYNN cards to carry around to remind them. These cards gave us the authority and final say to resolve any difficulty or complaint in the way that we decided. Not even the managing director could overrule us (unless we were offering his chauffeur-driven car as compensation to a customer).

Before this initiative, I felt we were generally good at resolving complaints, but these cards were great because there often was an issue that we knew would take time to resolve. So, if we couldn’t initially resolve the matter, we could say, what the hell, and give the customer what they wanted.

I thought this was a great initiative even if it meant in some cases that we were encouraging the wrong behaviour or sometimes went against a principle.

SYNN was our licence to be powerful and pragmatic, and it was great for avoiding drawn-out confrontations and moving on quickly.

The Proposal

The idea is to arrange for members of the UK government to be issued smart-looking SYNN cards.

Then Boris Johnson and government ministers armed with these cards should do a live TV press conference where the following questions would be put to them:

  1. Were the initial projections of infection and mortality for Covid-19 hopelessly wrong?
  2. Therefore, was the blanket lockdown unnecessary given any limited adverse impact the virus would have had without it?
  3. Do you agree that the policy of moving the sick, elderly, and vulnerable to care homes, while locking up low risk groups and the healthy, was wrong?
  4. Is it true that the “trust the science” narrative throughout was not based on science but on faulty models and guesswork?
  5. Do you agree that rather than act on fear and panic, it would have been wise to implement specific but limited measures, based broadly on the Sweden model?
  6. Do you agree, as some scientists have said (and quite frankly is common sense), that any such measures should have been directed towards “close and prolonged contact” and “at risk groups” rather than for shoppers, walking in parks, and blanket social distancing — and this was an assessment which should have been carried out at the outset?
  7. Do you agree that the whole thing has been a complete fiasco from start to finish and you and the media have instilled unnecessary fear and panic to the public and utterly dumbed down any sensible discussion — and have not focused on the real question – i.e is lockdown necessary and proportionate?
  8. Finally, can we now lift lockdown, as well as apply and keep under review some limited and targeted precautions (vulnerable groups, close contact risks) in agreement with a panel of real experts?

Yes?

Well, that’s sorted then. The government can pretend that it was just a small mistake like Swine Flu, BSE (Mad Cow Disease), Bird Flu, Iraq, and Libya.

The British people are awfully decent and understanding and will just be grateful to move on with their lives.

Everyone a happy bunny.

The lockdown manifestly wasn’t a panic driven overreaction: it was the intention from day one to facilitate the great reset by trashing the UK economy. Johnson always seems to get a fools pardon but he is absolutely wedded to Cummings/Gates population control agenda, what used to be called eugenics, which is why he has rolled out the red carpet to Gates. Old Stanley Johnson has written four books on population control and Johnson has made pointed comments about survival of the fittest – risible though the notion is that he got where he is now on merit.

“there’s been no evidence of a link between infection rates and social distancing, lockdown, and the wearing of masks”
 
There is in fact so much evidence that I don’t doubt you could argue there is no evidence the sky is blue. When you look at countries, lockdowns and social distancing reduced infection rates in every case. In countries that wear masks, the rate of infection is reduced.
 
In order to say “there is no evidence”, the only way is to lie to yourself and/or others.
 
And to answer your question about Sweden:
 
“Do you agree that rather than act on fear and panic, it would have been wise to implement specific but limited measures, based broadly on the Sweden model?”
 
Probably not, since Sweden had more deaths per million and also a raging care home problem, much as the UK. Plus, their economy still suffered in spite of allowing businesses to open, because many businesses aren’t profitable with social distancing measures, which Sweden still implemented.
 
If you are proposing to lift the lockdown as soon as possible, I suggest you check out what’s happening in a few of the states of the USA that already made that decision: Arizona, Texas, Florida and California. It isn’t looking as if it’s working great for them.

You are talking nonsense – you have fallen for the main-stream media lies. The above article is spot on.

Where did you obtain you info. about AZ, TX, FL and CA from? Are you there or reading the main-stream media? I am British but was in AZ for my lockdown (thank goodness I wasn’t in the UK at the time as the rules were nightmarish, the police out of order and a dysfunctional govt. led by a buffoon who lies, cannot organise his own life, is inarticulate and cannot make a decision about anything, was not to be trusted, never mind obeyed.)

The lockdown we had in AZ would horrify a person like you who has swallowed the false narrative. We left our home and went on the holiday we had booked in another part of AZ for 2 weeks. We were allowed to drive wherever we wanted in AZ and did hundreds of miles, we hiked (everyday on our holiday, plus when we arrived home in AZ), we chatted to people in gas stations and supermarkets, we had chiropractic treatments and acupressure treatments. We travelled in a car with a total of 5 people, one of whom we hadn’t met before, we visited the homes of friends for lunches and dinners, varied between 5 and 8 people. Before you are too outraged – this was FOLLOWING AZ’s lockdown rules which included meeting in groups of 10 people, probably even worse in your eyes, the 10 did not have to be in the same ‘bubble’. The word ‘bubble’ was not mentioned.

On the day of our booked return flights, we flew internal to TX, the plane was full. We flew international to Heathrow. Friends in the UK who we are in contact with via Skype and Zoom seem surprised we are back as ‘No flights are coming into the UK.’ They still believe this nonsense. Flights are arriving every day from all over the world.

My friends in AZ who I am in contact with, don’t recognise the nonsense you are spouting in your comment. Lockdown has ended, and they write about their normal – as in like their old normal – lives and the things they are getting on with. Everything is back open and has been for a while.

Great questions but apart from the minority no one in authority or in MSM will ever ask these questions.
I’m sure the government can hardly believe how easy it is to brainwash and control people.
They are laughing at us.

What this scam has shown me is that the masses willingly accept whatever the government and the bbc tell them. No questions asked.

The age of rational and critical thinking is over. The majority have no idea how to think for themselves. It probably hurts.
We’ve moved into a new age of stupidity.

The ‘science’ has been a fiasco and it’s obvious they make it up as they go along and they too cannot believe how easy it is to influence people.

It’s unbelievable the government would lock down and destroy the health and economy of the country based on a computer model and especially from Ferguson with a proven track record of being ludicrously wrong.
What was it ever going to achieve?
What science has ever shown that lockdowns worked?
Are we really meant to believe that only now in the last few weeks that they realised the damage done to the economy?
Lockdown has achieved nothing and your right- based on the countries that didn’t lock down , the lockdown has only made things worse.

Yes…, Ferguson has been kept on BECAUSE of his track record not in spite of it. He pulls stuff out of his arse according to what the deep-state wants. They keep him in a cupboard and use him whenever it suits. But now his nonsense has been highlighted due to info on the internet and so this time the gov has had to distance themselves from him.

There is the intriguing possibility that exposure to the Euro-American strain of Covid-19 may endow resistance to the more dangerous Wuhan strain. That this may indeed be the case is suggested by the large number of people that appear to be naturally resistant to the virus. These people being resistant due to their previous exposure to the Euro-American strain.

A CASH COW
 
Government officials will never say YES to any of those eight questions because the ruling class has not finished milking the COVID-19 cash cow. In January the “usual suspects” decided to manufacture a COVID-19 crisis and use it to economically restructure the US economy. They knew a lockdown would cause economic devastation to the most vulnerable, but still cleverly managed will the help of congress to transfer trillions into their already hefty coffers. Tech giants and the medical industrial complex seized the moment to secure billions. 
 
U.S. billionaires’ wealth has grown by $565 billion — or 19.5 percent — since March 18, when the majority of the nation shut down to slow the spread of the virus according to Inequality.org. The report is based on Forbes data for America’s more than 600 billionaires.
 
Why stop now, why not try for a second wave or wait until another new and strange coronavirus mysteriously surfaces. Medical panic and killer viruses are proving to be more profit-making than the War on Terror.

Despite the fact that it is nice today, and in many ways I am blessed, despite some personal tragedies, which I will not write about, I am having a bad day, despite working for an hour or two, digging in my back garden to grow more food.
 
The news is not good. Almost all my friends are still completely brainwashed. They still believe the official story, to such an extent there is almost no point whatsoever in trying to communicate with them.
 
Very few of them actually want to go back to work.
 
By the time they want to, if ever, their jobs will have gone.
 
They do not realise. They haven’t got a clue. They think it is O.K. now, and it has always been reasonably O.K.. Very few if any of them have ever gone hungry.
 
Sure they are doing fine now, most having their wages paid by the UK Government, but how long exactly do they think this is going to last?
 
It has been clear to me, almost from the start, that the worldwide agenda is depopulation.
 
My friends do not seem to realise, that they are next on the list.
 
There is nothing whatsover, to stop their dole being pulled en-masse, by the people in charge in the middle of winter. No money to heat their homes. No money to buy food.
 
None of them are preparing at all. They are just getting fat, very little exercise, and doing zoom, whilst totally p1ssed, thinking COVID will be over soon, and they can get back to normal.
 
The new normal, in my view will be like Mad Max, after they are dead.
 
I am infected by the mind virus too, and need to get fit, or I will be joining them in the death queue.
 
Potatoes and Broccoli doing well, and my wife and I can scavenge.
 
She’s a Country Girl, and we can rough it.
 
I just need to get my positive motivation switched back on.

My friends are brainwashed, too. Although, I had a glimmer of hope when one of them was perplexed about his inability to breathe while wearing a mask in 75 F + high humidity weather.

My tomatoes are also maturing nicely in the garden area of our apartment complex. I have bought many seedlings, amended the poor soil, and water twice a day dragging buckets from the third floor apartment because the irrigation is broken. I was late planting potatoes, but even those are looking strong now! However, I heard rumors that someone was stealing the fruit from other people’s plots. I was having a conversation about this with a guy who grows stuff in the neighboring plot, and this confused young man thought that it was completely OK for people to take fruits from other people’s plots because this was a “community garden, after all”. I guess he thinks whatever I labored over belongs to everyone. I am thinking of putting up a sign (any ideas welcome) to make clear my opposition to this commie takeover.

Slightly off topic, but could someone give me an update on Sweden. I wrote a long list of questions (which I phrased respectfully) about COVID, the response, and the collateral results to my newspaper and all levels of government. The letter I received from the provincial government was personal (a big plus?) though it answered none of the questions.
 
This phrase was a large part of the rationale for policy: “Dr. Henry [public health officer] has spoken many times about the unlikelihood of community (herd) immunity, as Sweden’s experiment has so tragically shown.”
 
What tragic consequences?

Thanks. Do you – or does anyone – know if there is anything very recent? When I go to mainstream sites to get info, there are three pages of criticism of Sweden with an upsurge in incidence in the last few days.
 
I’m guessing the down vote was because my neutral request seemed to be that of an undecided newby. I’m nothing of the sort. I want to argue the use of the word “tragic” to describe the Swedish outcome when replying to my provincial government, but honestly, of course. This denigration of Sweden is always used to justify anti-social distancing, masks, mass unemployment, all collateral damage. And they always compare it only to Norway.

The aim is to create a new world currency.
Anyone wanting to use it will need to be ‘vaccinated’ with an ID chip.
 
In 1988 the Economist magazine (part owned by the Rothschild family) published on its cover a phoenix with a gold coin rising from the burning ashes of the currencies; the title was “Get ready for a world currency“. We are now over 30 years from its publication. 
 
China hired a British company, Chetwoods who plan to build the new twin towers called the Phoenix project in the capital of China’s Hubei province.
 
Hubei’s capital is Wuhan, where the ‘virus’ is supposed to have started.

The government has screwed up and has to go along with the nightmare they started. Otherwise they have to admit to having made a mistake and then what would happen…..lawsuits for the rest of the century!
 
Sorry folks but years of visiting conspiracy sites shows me that conspiracies do not exist since they cannot be maintained by groups of people unless it’s less than 3! Someone always blabs. As for some high level cooperation between mega interests all illuminati style is just BS. Same problem the secretive organisation required is immense and impossible. Not only that but they are pretty incompetent at it! NAH. This is a classic cock-up where they can’t work out how to get out of it. Hence the illogical imposition of more stringent controls making it look like they know what they are doing.
 
It’s up to joe public to get out of it. Not protests since they can be easily dismissed. What is needed is a symbolic gesture every day, day after day, by almost everyone. Obvious ones that scream “we are not taking this seriously”. For example literally wear a face mask : Guy Fawks /V for vendatta or the Hooked nose plague mask. Go to the beach with large signs with some appropriate message “Keep Clear – Abnormal Boris Bubble At Play”.
 
With enough visual dissent everywhere every day the police will not take things seriously, especially if it’s all within the limit of the law, the press will have to cover it, even the BBC. Then questions start and that will snowball as ratings plummet and the government has to rollback everything simply to try and re-gain some support.

Far be it from me to cast aspersions on such an in depth critique. However, as you have a reasonable grasp of the dictionary definition of ‘conspiracy’ i have to remind you that all anti-conspiracy theorists are of a mind that Governments, regardless of party or country, lie their way into power then fail to deliver on promises made earlier.These governments seldom have 3 or less in their number.If these agree upon a dishonest strategy to sell themselves or to sell you snake oil, they have conspired to deceive for personal gain or to deceive the people they are supposed to be transparent with.
 
 ”NAH. This is a classic cock-up where they can’t work out how to get out of it. Hence the illogical imposition of more stringent controls making it look like they know what they are doing.”
 
‘NAH’ indeed. So the paying of Doctors to lie about the virus in their diagnoses and on death certificates isn’t a conspiracy to sell lies to the public ? Isn’t a conspiracy to give the impression of a problem being far greater than it is in reality ?And the plans outlined in the SAGE document in March to utilise the media to induce and sustain high levels of fear in order to force the public to conform and obey wasn’t a conspiracy to deceive and trick? The governments ordering social networks to remove anyone expressing doubts and asking relevant questions -as is their right- isn’t / wasn’t a conspiracy to help sustain a dishonest narrative and hide the reality ?That doctors thousand miles apart are calling the figures and graphs wrong and the treatments dishonest doesn’t suggest a pre-agreed conspiracy by colluding governments ? All coincidences ? Nah..

With all this madness going on, my main question is why people don’t seem to react to any debunk of the official narrative. It seems like every one is in a slumber, sort of hypnosis. To me this psychological experiment is to gather information on how we behave in lockdown and profile the global population behavior to better manipulate us from now on. They are probably laughing with all ludicrous guidelines to fight this phony virus. That, plus mandatory vaccination. Here in Brazil we are living the worst of the pandemic and it doesn’t seem to wear down and I believe it is due to Brazilians broad acceptance of vaccines. We long desperately for them to come and will take very fast and without question.

Last night’s TV News in the UK (can’t recall if it was BBC or Sky News) had a short feature about a particular suburb ‘hardest hit’ by the ‘virus’. They featured one family (not sure how the, presumably, Brazilian film crew found themselves outside a family home when an elderly resident ‘with Covid19’ was being transported by ambulance from the house, but they did).
 
The film footage then showed an elderly man (may even have purportedly been the man taken away from the house but I’m not sure about that) being removed from an ambulance and taken on a stretcher into hospital. We were certainly led to believe this was one of the many Covid19 patients being transported to the hospital all day long. The main thing that struck me though as extremely implausible was that the man on the stretcher had a close fitting standard blue cloth face mask on. No sign of any oxygen supplementation and we know that people with respiratory problems should not wear face masks! One could almost believe that this was akin to a White Helmets propaganda production.

I’m not sure I understand why the general view here is that lockdown is somehow advantageous to governments and profiteers (in UK and globally. Maybe I’m naive but hasn’t locking down totally wrecked capitalism. If the economy’s fucked isn’t capitalism fucked?
 
I would have thought governments and very powerful economic institutions around the world, would have wanted anything but a lockdown eg. now governments have to pay welfare to thousands/millions of unemployed etc, businesses of all sizes have tanked etc.. What advantage is there for powers that be in this?
 
I know some people here believe its advantageous to Bill Gates’ economic hegemony etc.. because of the imminent vaccine etc but I’m not convinced that governments globally – ranging from reasonably democratic to totalitarian – are thrilled about lockdown being advantageous. I’m imagining they’re thinking how to get out of this very deep hole without losing power.
 
I get the concerns about how LD, tracing and tracking has made it so much easier for government control in other ways, but economically speaking I don’t see LD as advantageous to governments.

You are right – it is destructive to capitalism. This is neo-marxist policy. Technocrats don’t need the old economy. They can now “print” bitcoins and use drones to deliver goods without our old paper money, retail economy. Tearing down the old infrastructure allows for a new power structure.

I’ll consider the opinion about the total control through bitcoin, drone economy, but not sure about the neo marxist thing(maybe I’m not understanding how a shift to marxism is advantageous to capitalist hegemony even if -as people here say – capitalism’s falling apart). I just can’t see all the oligarchs, global governments economic powerhouses etc. co-ordinating in a dark room saying “Lockdown.. Brilliant.. let’s milk this”.
 
You may think I’m hopelessly naive and trust governments, power monopolies etc, unquestioningly. I don’t. But I think what some here are suggesting is speculative not actual.

the world financial/economic collapse was already underway, and was likely to be much more severe than in 2008. that disaster provoked the Occupy Wall Street movement, which eventually had to be suppressed by state violence. current phenomena such the Gilets Jaunes movement suggest that the popular reaction to a new collapse is likely to be much more threatening to the global ruling-class.
 
in this context, some explanation for the collapse had to be found, which would divert attention away from the inherent injustice of neoliberal capitalism. ideally, such an explanation would also serve to obstruct the formation or development of social movements such as the Gilets Jaunes, which would directly threaten the continued rule of the billionaires.
 
at this exact juncture, an allegedly pandemic disease suddenly appeared, forcing the shutdown of the economy that was already shutting down, and necessitating the confinement of the entire developed-world population, conveniently making impossible any kind of popular response to the situation. problem solved.

So called Main Stream Media journalists are propagandists for a small cadre of globalized billionaires and their acolytes/servants/wannabees and academia .These folk , and there are many millions of them globally , resent paying living wages , dislike the notion of equality , and having the planets resorts cluttered with working folk.

The US media apparently already thought of that and came up with their Plan B strategy. The states which are phasing back the lockdown have been declared “COVID Hot Spots.” And, accordingly, the number of cases and corresponding deaths have “Spiked.”
 
Besides the government’s proven track record of fudging all kinds of statistics, there is the obvious “sore thumb” sticking out. Namely, how did phasing back, which only began a week or two ago, result in such a flurry of pathogenic activity all at once?
 
I suspect the media is so sure of the stupidity of the American public that it doesn’t think for a minute they’ll put two and two together correctly this time – and realize something’s not quite right that in a mere week or two such a “Spike” could possibly occur.

Ive been shocked how much the public in California is getting the picture on this. Only a few years ago that wouldn’t have been the case.

Last week in our county of Orange on the south border of L.A., the health director resigned amid much pushback (and anonymous threats) and the new director said masks are no longer mandatory, in defiance of state mandates. Governor Newsom has also been adjusting his stance to show more flexibility. Its a delicate dance of sillinesses, which are plentiful.

Such as, “Knowing what everyone now knows, why is there still a lockdown?”

I found this out yesterday at our YMCA, which was allowed to reopen after 90 days of lockdown and a bonanza for toilet paper manufcturers.

This is great news – and certainly helps explain why Californians are unique among Americans. Although as time goes by, more individuals are coming to see the lunacy of the lockdown.
 
That doesn’t seem to be true in Maryland, where I live. But there are many questioning the lockdown in Virginia, where (Democratic) Governor Ralph Northam imposed mandatory mask wearing just a week ago – doubtless under pressure from other Democratic governors.
 
As always, the biggest obstacle is public apathy. Once people got over the initial shock of having their lives upended, they fell right in line once they saw they could still bury themselves in their smart phones. Proper breathing takes a back seat to watching cats and other critters doing silly things. First things first you know.

”The lockdown was a panic-driven overreaction.”
 
I suppose that would depend on what you believe is true.If you believe the pandemic descended upon us out of the blue and was shrouded in mystery and caprice then yes- panic would be a normal reaction. Especially as it was apparently deadly and spreading. On the other hand, if you believe that the pandemic was a drill of gargantuan proportions and an exercise in how to control as large a slice of the global population through undiluted and unrelenting fear, them you wouldn’t really be overreacting at all- you’d be merely pretending to react with urgency to maintain the appearance of a global threat.So, position number one is yes, it was a panic-driven overreaction.Position number two is no, it was all part of a mass rehearsal and exercise in mind manipulation and behavioural programming using deceit and fear.The overreaction was paramount to the maintaining of the lie.
 
As time has passed, it would seem that position number 2 has gathered momentum.At first, the voices of descent who dared to question the official narrative were pounced upon by the mainstream and the governmental agents and silenced.The shills collected support from the scared and the panicking of the confused herd to keep these rebels and their objectivity away from their worried eyes as they searched in vain for hope.But then the doctors and nurses began to do the same thing as those ‘wacky conspiracy theorists’ ; ask the same questions; and point out the major flaws in the narrative and suddenly the cracks appeared.Questions were being asked by those who were in medicine and virology.They questioned politicians and then questioned the software magnate and their many, many conclusions and predictions and warnings about a virus that had a name but had yet to be isolated in order to make a real vaccine.We were being told of it’s origins, it’s path, the likely havoc it would cause in terms of huge swathes of the world’s population it would claim.Not by anyone medical.But a software magnate with a dubious record ( to say the least) in the area.And buy Computer code writers and programmers who were commissioned by the government and part funded by said software magnate.Suddenly it looked long-planned. Then we learned that all nations had the same script.The same instructions.hand it all over to ‘behavioural scientists’. They used to be called Psychologists.Have them come up with a programme of cognitive behaviour change and , once that was done, they could design a media campaign to hammer it home.Fear, fear, and fear.Repetition, repetition, repetition.A swinging fob watch appeared on every screen in front of every pair of eyes and the spell began.And so the sniffer dogs went to work…
 
With those crazy conspiracy theorists silenced or shadow banned by various platforms it’s annoying for those who did the silencing and banning to now read and hear the views they have silenced echoed by actual doctors and nurses. After all, they’ve been re-packaged now by the media as ‘front line heroes’ in this ‘war’.They have to be allowed the platforms.They tell us about their having been told and, often, cash – incentivized- to ‘massage’ the figures by lying on death certificates and diagnoses.The aim being to make a small figure to be inflated exponentially across the world and increase the fear in the public.There you have a rather large smoking gun.That’s your bona fide conspiracy; it’s many people planning to deceive the the whole population. That’s the theory.The above is the evidence to support it.They’re facts. Lying about the real figures, the real treatments and the real intentions of the so called ‘reaction’ to drill us all and train us to get back into our prisons, to buy only essentials, to not walk our dogs, to keep away from people and to self isolate.To postpone weddings and accept that any funerals you may unfortunately have to arrange can only allow 6 people to attend at maximum.All because the figures that the government have lied about using the media and medical staff across the world.Why would they do that ? If the virus is real and really as lethal as they claim, the numbers wouldn’t need the massaging.The doctors wouldn’t need to be granted immunity from blame of any negligence and the staff in various hospitals wouldn’t need to be threatened with unemployment should they discuss the virus outside of work.The virus, in other words, didn’t require global spin.But it was given it. By all nations taking part in this plan.People are now refusing to clap to order for hospital staff that are turning away the sick and the frail if they are not privately paying patients.The caste system is coming. Those rumbles you just heard in the distance are bringing a storm..
 
Everything points toward an agenda that’s been kept hidden but snuck out into the light.And that agenda would appear to be driven by Bill Gates. He is the man with the plan.He was ready to roll with RFID chips. The same ones conspiracy nutcases have been warning us all about for 25 years.They need a good excuse that wouldn’t impeach on our human rights to freedom and privacy.The only one is protection against a killer pandemic.See ? It’s for our own good.His vaccination speeches are typical of those of a software magnate.They lack medical rationale.He and the king of patents( Fauci ) are talking about when it will be ready and why the whole world needs it while acknowledging that 90% of people who are unlucky enough to contract the virus are not in danger.So it appears the tracking virus and pharma patents are in charge.Gates has already said the internal ” tattoo” would be able to contain all of our information.We can have our hands scanned and our whole history will be there.Our bank accounts, medical history, marital status, criminal records, outstanding fines and so on.The SS used to stop citizens with a short and sharp demand ” your papers please”. They didn’t have a digital age until they made their new home in America after the ‘rescue’.Can anyone tell me how any of that concerns a virus ?And can anyone yet see why we’ve handed the responsibility of the population’s health to a software magnate ?
 
There are two papers available to peruse that blows the whole game out of the water. I’ve provided a link for one on a previous post( SAGE). The other is from 2010.A little ‘creative writing’ exercise undertaken by those at the Rockerfeller Institute ( the same Rockerfellers who have held the dream of a NWO and RFID chips for the human cattle for years). The exercise involved imagining ‘scenarios in the future’ that threatened the population( like the pandemic Gates promised us all in 2017) and how they can fight it with technology( not medicine).No, it isn’t science fiction.It isn’t conspiracy theory.It really exists.I could highlight the relevant parts.But i’ll provide the link instead and leave you to join the dots.You’re welcome. 🙂

Mask / Muzzle wearing and Social Distancing, measures to keep sheeple and Karens happy.

1) Pictures from Wuhan show everybody and their dog with a mask on – didn’t do much bloody good did it.
2) Pictures from Japan show they are still cramming onto their trains. Japan has a really low Covid death rate. So that proves social distancing is also a load of bull, when you have 48 million crammed into the greater Tokyo area.

Social distancing completely screws the entire hospitality / travel / tourism industry, therefore the most likely reason it is being pushed is continuing economic sabotage.

Masks during worst plague of history didn’t do much good, did it?
 
“Miasmas” and “Vapors” are just about as good as science as Covid.
 
I argue the mask is a symbol of a death cult / world population actuaries which have been around since Atlantis pre-civilization 15,000 – 10,000 BC.

I don’t see how it undermines ending lock down? I suspect if they had carried on as normal much of the care home catastrophe would have been avoided.
 
And honestly the PPE distraction is really just obfuscation. Current unproven & unnecessary social distancing in hospitals is costing lives right now they just aren’t being recorded yet.
 
Hospitals are still reserving staff & beds in empty covid wards waiting for the “2nd wave” & spacing beds further apart in normal wards so they are 50% down in capacity.
 
When this all finally ends the number of deaths caused by medical neglect will overshadow the number of covid deaths by 100s of thousands.
 
The care home deaths were an unnecessary tragedy but there’s far worse scandals to come. PPE propaganda is official misinformation.

Well, like you, WHO say one thing and obviously, under pressure from who knows who, changes their advice. Not just about wearing the masks but more recently about asymptomatic people not being a risk to others and will not pass it on to others to a complete volta face saying they might. My feeling is if you are asymptomatic then you haven’t got it because you would, er, have symptoms. They are making it up as they go along. Around here, people seem to have completely abandoned the social distancing crap. Certainly, the people on the demonstrations have! Now the scaremongering is oh, there will be a second wave! 2nd Wave be damned. 2nd Wave of what exactly? Fear, austerity, hysteria.

My thoughts are that we should just call out the great cv19 lie for what it is, there hasn’t even been an epidemic let alone a pandemic, of any seasonal virus.
 
What’s really happening is the globalist puppeteers have pushed the global reset button, thru their political minions. Don’t like either of them but have to say kudos to Trump and Bojo, for some resistance at least. Bojo has caved but Trump still shows some fight at times. The cv19 hoax is being pretty much rested atm, the 2nd stage of the imposition of tyranny is in full flow now, where family and society is being further atomised/disconnected from each other. No doubt nearly all protesters in the police brutality protests are sincere, but they have been hijacked by the globalist puppeteers, rentamob thugs. The idea is to get ordinary ppl pleading for full martial law to *protect* them, the protests may also be useful for creating lies about a 2nd wave of CV19. I personally don’t think any of what they’re doing is clever, it’s totally in ur face and transparent in my mind, they’re conditioning us for slavery and the rabbit hutches they’ll assign us in their global heaven.

Received a nice coloured leaflet through the door last week headlined PPE PROTECT featuring a clever looking white coated young lady inspecting a little black object (?) and of course wearing the ubiquitous mask which they are trying to sell. Its from Paragon Health & Safety Consultants. It states in small type that the mask can protect you from “various viruses in the air”. I have emailed them asking which viruses they meant but they have still not replied as yet. Our main street is now aligned with traffic cones in preparation for widening the pavements so that we can all maintain a 2 metre space from fellow shoppers when out buying our lockdown supplies. This week pubs are asking for permission to install tables outside their premises to serve thirsty customers with strict supervision of toilet facilities. Sitting at a table drinking beer alongside passing traffic is not everyone’s idea of an enjoyable day out but as we are all becoming accustomed to this unfolding insanity it will surely be preferable to sitting at home watching telly and becoming suicidal.

I also like the image of sitting in a pub or restaurant with friends all two metres apart, presumably wearing masks when they’re not actually eating or drinking, possibly separated by perspex screens, and trying to have a conversation. There’s going to be a lot of intolerable shouting going on and repeated use of the phrases “What did you say? I can’t hear you”. Going to toilets is going to be an unimaginable enterprise.
 
No, weekends out for a relaxed sociable get-together, lunchtime trips to the pub with work colleagues, work colleagues leaving/retirement celebrations/birthday celebrations will be a thing of the past. Who on earth would want to put themselves through such regimented and impractical nonsense? I really do feel for people in the food and drink sector.

If you haven’t seen Vernon Coleman’s “The Dentistry Madness” video, please do. Until a few months ago, I would’ve assumed it was entirely satirical– as Coleman himself says often enough.
 
It beggars belief that even a blinkered technocrat or bureaucrat, singly or in committee, would fail to understand that even if the preposterous proposed procedures seem “necessary”, they are obviously unworkable. I still wonder if they are actual, real official proposals, and not a satire written by someone who’d primed the pump by reading plenty of Kafka.
 
Put the other way around: if persons in authority are actually promulgating this insanity, it could only be for the nefarious purpose of discouraging the public from going to the dentist, and to drive the profession of dentistry out of existence.

Exactly, Ort. I watched the dentistry video a couple of days ago and shared it with people I know well who previously intimated that I had been brainwashed but are now gradually coming around to realising that maybe people like us do have a point. I live in North Wales and dentists here are not even scheduled to reopen for business until January! Apparently some dentists are looking into renting property over the border in Chester just so they can operate a semblance of a business and hope for some faint glimmer of survival. Desperate times indeed.

On a completely unrelated note, I smiled when I read your reply. It’s well known that many place names in the US are borrowed from the UK, or British Isles, or whatever the proper term is– especially on the East Coast, and especially in the vicinity of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where I live.
 
I went to high school with someone who lived in the not-too-distant borough of North Wales, PA. And the city of Chester is just south of Philly; I often visited there in the course of my former employment.
 
Many years ago, my expatriate brother returned for a visit, accompanied by a group of colleagues from Europe and the UK. My long-deceased father was bemused when one member of the group said he was from “Jersey”, because his accent seemed decidedly un-Jerseyan. Dad’s confusion partly arose because residents of the adjoining state, New Jersey, commonly refer to it as “Jersey”.
 
Of course, the man was from the real Jersey– the Channel Island. This was explained after Dad cautiously asked, “Whereabouts in Jersey?”, since the visitor’s accent sounded nothing like the distinctive New Jersey accent. Everyone laughed, and Dad was teased about this every so often. This has nothing to do with anything, but since your reply triggered this memory I couldn’t resist sharing it. 😉

Why isn’t Ferguson being charged with gross incompetence which resulted in devastation to many people’s lives and the UK economy? Not to mention the rest of the World.
How many in the United States alone are now unemployed? Over 40 million, I believe, along with all those who will soon be homeless.
Cockup is far too polite a term. And I wonder how many politicians do you know who would willingly stand in front of a TV camera, and admit they made a right royal screw up?
I sell The Big Issue mag, which was suspended 11 weeks ago today because of the panicdemic.
It’s been a mentally tough slog. I know of other New Zealand citizens living in Australia who only had a few weeks rent money in their bank when they were laid off from work.
The mag will resume again on Mon 29th June, and all vendors will be expected to wear face masks, and regularly use hand sanitiser, however we will Not be required to download the Coronavirus Tracing App. Which was a relief as I’d already drawn my line in the sand regards the App.

Hi Gezza, Ferguson charged? TPTB would never allow that because the truth and nothing but would have to come out in court! What went unreported over the past two weeks was that he has stated that lockdown, social distancing etc have had no effect at all. We all knew that though. Strangely, the MSM didn’t run this. Worse though, is I think it was last week, he said had lockdown not happened there would have been up to 3m deaths! That’s using his useless forecasting tool! They are making it up as they go along. Obviously, Ferguson hasn’t looked at the countries that weren’t in lockdown who have faired a lot better than we have. WTF? He must have a magicians hat into which he dips and comes up with these worthless, falsified figures. Anyway, nice to see you will be back out selling the Big Issue in a couple of weeks time. I hope that you can then get back to your life as you knew it without the stresses you have been put through.

Hi Jo, nice to hear from you again.
I know already about the Ferguson story.
I saw a couple stories on Ferguson views on the lockdowns and social distancing on my FB newsfeed, and I can’t really repeat the comments people made.
Joined several Facebook groups opposed to the lockdowns, 5G, Bill Gates, etc, so lots of info sharing!
I’ve also namedropped OffGuardian, (no, I’m not getting a commission!) The Corbett Report, Wrench In The Gears blog, and the impressive Truthstream Media quite often.
The whole thing has been a giant debacle.
I’ve still got a rent freeze until July 20th, still food in the cupboards, so am fairly lucky.
A lot of people have been deeply impacted.
How are you going? Do you know when you’ll be back at work? How have you been coping? I know you have your faith. In times like this, it’s important to have faith in something greater than ourselves.

Hi Gezzah, The truth is, the longer lock down continues the less likely it is that i will be able to return to my job. On the plus side though, I have a home and food on the table and my writing is really going well now. So, for me, for the first time in 25 years I am what I have always wanted to be, a penniless writer!!
 
I’ve looked on the internet and there aren’t really any jobs around. There is some thinking that when furlough comes to an end (I think it’s October) there will be a lot more unemployed. Also, the UK’s GDP has fallen by a whopping 20% – that’s a Depression and mass unemployment looming (which I have predicted for the past 3 years) and a No Deal Brexit (Coming up in June will compound that). I sure am glad about one thing though, that I am on the wrong side of 60 years. I would hate to be young today.

I say 2nd wave be damned, we haven’t even had a 1st one!! It’s all scaremongering and hysteria again. The Scientists have become the new Nazis I think.
 
It’s interesting but sometimes I tap into some USA newspapers to see how they view the UK and Europe. One thing I will say is that their reporting is far more honest than ours is. What they are reporting about the UK is that is has the worst economy not just in Europe but possibly the developed world. So, with a No Deal Brexit a certainty and this idiotic lockdown, they report that it is going to take many many years to ever get back to a strong economy. Funny that it’s not reported here isn’t it?

Ferguson was also quoted as saying that by delaying introducing lockdown as long as it did, the government had caused loss of life to be about twice as high
as it might otherwise have been. Or something like that. I didn’t pay too much attention because I knew he was either getting these figures out of his **** or out of one of his terrible computer programmes, either location being equally unsavoury.

Ferguson’s a complete fool. He’s trying to save face. After his astounding mistakes with Foot and Mouth and the like he had every need to be extra careful with this one.Instead he used a 13 year old unregistered model( if he actually did use one).He obviously didn’t expect to come under scrutiny.Just take the cash, deliver the numbers for the boss and wait.But it went badly wrong.He insisted that we were in a crucial phase and that breaking self isolation was a potential powder keg.He then broke it himself and pretty much confirmed by his actions that he didn’t believe that himself.Or, to put it more plainly- he demonstrated that he was lying to everyone- not just his wife.Now he’s drawing on false statistics to try and make real observations and commentary.He’s full of the brown stuff.

In the interviews with him which were shown in a recent UK Column broadcast which Off-G featured, his body language is interesting. He appears to be looking at the camera, but in fact his eyes are either cast down or mostly shut.

Of course, at the heart of the problem lies the fact that there are powerful people who think just that. All the while being embezzled into bankruptcty by the “subsidiary”, who we are told “was a liar and thief from the beginning.”

Mikeb, Oh so true unfortunately. Let’s see because, as I have been saying for the past year to friends and colleagues, the British economy was in serious recession with the GDP output figures dropping, dropping and dropping year on year. I also said a No Deal Brexit would tip us into a Depression. Well, it seems it will but they are going to blame it on Covid when the pound is tanking due to a No Deal Brexit. GDP dropped by 20% as was reported this week. What are the government going to do now? Lift the lockdown or become a poor country because we won’t have the EU now to bolster the economy. We will have a crappy Trade Deal with the USA the main focus of which is to take over this country’s economy I think and secure a large market for USA food imports. WTF? What do this Government care?

If only…if only! If only the masses were being “programmed to want to follow, worship a god, leader.” But I’m afraid all the evidence of human history suggests they are hard wired to want these things; the programming is a so far vain attempt to get those few of us who lack the wiring on board.
 
That too is alright, since the vast majority have a natural immunity to accepting anything they don’t wish to accept. I recall something I read by Konrad Lorentz. He had taken a Greylag Goose for a house pet; the goose had a rigid routine every night before going upstairs to bed. One night she forgot one piece of the routine – and became completely disoriented and freaked out. Sound like any species you know?

‘The British’, formerly also known as ‘the English’, replete with asymmetric national devolution, the Barnett Formula, and the oft. resurgent West Lothian Question, are a bunch of idiotic prats ruled by a ‘UK’ Government which does not serve its original purpose. It cannot. Asymmetric national devolution is not democracy. The Scottish and Welsh (strangely, no longer primarily labelled ‘British’ politically) are far more with it.

The Scots currently ruled by the Spiteful Nannying Party are subjected to an even more micromanaging petty fascist historically amnesiac regime.
Devolution under the natzis has meant much less local autonomy and and obsessive centralisation with an easily forecast loss of competence at the small things.

Indeed, you only have to look at the natzi track record of centralising everything in Edinburgh, sticking “Scotland Scotland scotland” somwheren in the title and watching performance nose dive.
Education, health care, transport, energy, planning etc etc are all doing noticeably worse than their counterparts in England.
Can you say ferry’s? BBC has brushed that one under the carpet hasn’t it, can you imagine if that had been the Tories.
I have heard that the Natzis are quite content with trashing Scotland for a generation and turning it into a dungheap as long as they can blame the eeevil Tories

I think I can see the faint outlines of a pattern emerging.
 
Throughout history until a few years ago, everyone accepted that infectious diseases appeared every now and then, killing large numbers of people. Then the dead were buried, and life went on.
 
Recently, however – and especially with the present “Covid-19” – there seems to be a great solicitude for the sanctity of life and for avoiding any deaths at all. Which is hard to put into practice, as the Human Being Mark I seems to have an average life expectancy of 70-80 years (with some living to 100 years and over).
 
With a current world population getting on for 8.8 billion, at first sight it is surprising that only about 60 million people die each year. That’s only about one in 160. The explanation is that so many more people are born each year than die. The global population is mainly quite young, and the death rate of course is mostly a fraction of the old – who are many fewer.
 
Still, over 10 million people die each and every year of communicable diseases – infections to you and me. Compared to the official 428,487 who have supposedly died of (or maybe “with”) Covid-19. According to WHO, “Globally, 4 million people die prematurely from chronic respiratory disease”. https://www.who.int/gard/publications/The_Global_Impact_of_Respiratory_Disease.pdf That is ten times the death toll of Covid-19 – even if the latter has not been artificially puffed up for political reasons.
 
Why is it that a few high-profile deaths in Western nations assume such enormous, all-consuming importance? Just as Western armed forces in their invasions of foreign countries can tolerate no more than a handful of casualties before they give up.
 
Whereas tens of millions die of common diseases in poorer countries, and “adventures” such as the US-led invasion of Iraq (still in progress after 17 years) kill literally millions.
 
One might put it down to racism, except that the holocaust of elderly people in “care homes” throughout Western nations has been accepted with placid resignation.
 
It does certainly seem, though, that when it comes to other people’s deaths “some animals are more equal than others”.

I don’t think it is respect for the sanctity of human life. Quite the reverse. It the same people who argue for population transfers and for population reduction.
 
“The fact that population transfers are currently making a comeback on the scholarly and policy agenda also suggests that we should scrutinize with particular care the most extensive experiment made with them to date. Despite the gruesome history, enthusiasts continue to chase the mirage of “humane” mass deportations as a means of resolving intractable ethnic problems. Andrew Bell-Fialkoff, in a much-cited study, has advocated population transfers as a valuable tool so long as they are “conducted in a humane, well-organized manner, like the transfer of Germans from Czechoslovakia by the Allies in 1945-47.” John Mearsheimer, Chaim Kaufmann, Michael Mann and others have done likewise.”

The biggest killers are still cardiovascular disease and cancers of various sorts, which are not communicable diseases. (It’s true that grant-seeking researchers have been trying to prove for years that cancers are caused by viruses without success, with the possible exception of HPV – at least that has proved successful for the manufacturers of the HPV vaccine).

Here’s at least one great American, one who doesn’t think “some animals are more equal than others”, judging by the epigraph on his home page, one he has underlined with a lot of his own blood (“on the tracks”) the day he got both his legs cut off by a U.S. Navy train as his group was protesting shipments of phosphorous rockets for use against the Sandinistas (read: helpless tribal villagers mostly) in 1987. (I had the great privilege to walk and talk with him a few months later. (He was already up and about, speaking to a small group in a lecture hall at UCLA.)

And the debate in the British media is that the lock down was badly done, not harsh enough, and was implemented too late. Nobody is allowed to say that it should never have been done at all.

Knowing what they know now, and still to be insisting on the closure of companies and places of entertainment is pure wilful economic vandalism, akin only to Brexit in it’s blind ignorance of the facts.

This is why I am convinced, like Brexit, this is being ordered externally by the US, I cannot imagine a country doing this to itself from choice.

In the US they gave a parachute to the people they cared most about, the large corporations, and proceeded to destroy small independent business and drive the poor even further into poverty and surrender more rights. At least these, I can see the economic and social motive fitting in well with their other agenda’s.

Just as they gave a parachute to the people they cared about in Nazi Germany. Eisenhower killed millions of ordinary Germans* and yet airlifted thousands of senior SS and Nazi officials into the U.S. where they took positions in government, law enforcement, science, the military and, of course intelligence where the OSS effectively merged with the SS effecting a reverse takeover of the newly-formed CIA.
 
The precise numbers are irrelevant. The point is the Allies said they wanted to destroy Germany… yet they very publicly punished ordinary Germans while incorporating the Nazi bureaucracy into the post-war American and European and Latin American government structures (while Otto Skorzeny and others went to work for Israel). That was a psychological operation. The consequences we are dealing with now: the same U.S. Foundations like Rockefeller, the same U.S.-German corporations, the same eugenics and medical martial law…
 
The Nazi Hydra In Fascist America Glen Yeadon and John Hawkins
 
*Eisenhower denied German soldiers the PoW status to which they were entitled under law, and proceeded to starve more than 5 million men and women, of whom an estimated 1.7 million died in his camps.
Across Germany as a whole, up to 12 million Germans died AFTER 1945.

The Allies incorporated all those war criminals except, they claim, the first class, Hitler and his cabinet, though even that is disputed by prominent names like former Reuters duty editor Gerrard Williams in Grey Wolf (2011) and Paul Manning in Bormann (1981)
 
From the aforementioned book: “Soviet scholar Professor A. Farrin published an English version of War and the Working Class. This publication hinted at being the official viewpoint of the Soviet Union. The article divided war criminals into four classes.
“The first class included Hitler and his cabinet ministers. The second class included party leaders and the German Army Command. Financial and industrial leaders made up the third class. The fourth group was defined as those who benefited from the Nazi plundering, such as by receiving stolen goods or exploiting slave labor.”
