Crossing the Rubicon: The UK Slips into a Repressive State

Mark Chapman

Julius Caesar’s crossing the Rubicon River in 49 BC in defiance of Roman law placed him and his army on a direct collision course with Rome, leading to the Civil War which established him as Roman dictator. It is a well-established metaphor for a point at which there is no going back and at which things will never be the same.

I predicted a few weeks ago that the UK Government would in the near future try to force everyone to wear facemasks in public. Leave aside the plethora of information that makes it clear face masks are of practically zero benefit in everyday circumstances, and may in fact be dangerous, the forced wearing of facemasks is a transgression so fundamental and of such significance that it is difficult to adequately express.

It implicitly hands your body over to state control, and renders one of your most basic existential freedoms subject to state interference. For the first time, the right to exercise a choice of whether you should inhibit your respiratory faculties and hide your face in public is taken out of your hands. If you doubt the significance of this, try to remember the public outcry that followed a debate regarding banning the wearing of burkhas and hijabs in the face of Islamic terrorism, and the connotations this had for civil liberties at the time.

Facemask wearing is the visible hallmark of Asian states perceived in the West as repressive and authoritarian. It is a badge of serfdom, akin to the yellow star that Jews were forced to wear in Nazi Germany. There is no greater invasion of your person possible short of tattooing you with a number.

This astonishing about-turn in policy has not happened overnight or without preparation. It has been preceded by a cleverly-orchestrated media campaign which seeks to bizarrely turn established professional and scientific research on its head, making virologists, infection-control bodies and academics who have published papers for the medical profession into liars and charlatans.

This campaign has included editorials and blogs which talk in disapproving and accusatory tones of “mask-shirkers” and “mask-deniers” allegedly “refusing” to wear face masks. Leave aside the obvious fact that refusal cannot take place without a demand: in other words someone has to give you an instruction to which you reply, “No, thanks.”

Absent such a demand, you are not refusing anything, merely making a choice. And until now there has been no such demand. But those making this choice are now psychopaths and enemies of humanity without a shred of integrity, respect or regard for their fellow human beings. When I returned from Asia early this year the advice was clear: face masks do not protect you from infection and it is not advised that you wear them.

What is more, face mask wearing was actively discouraged because of limited supplies required for hospital environments, where infection control is king and every precaution makes sense. Above all the only situation in which it is appropriate to wear a facemask in public is if you are unwell and have a cough, in which case why not stay at home?

But this piece of simple logic has been covered by the mask-advocates whose logic runs like this: “You may have coronavirus without knowing it, and may infect others with your breath even at unlimited distances so you need to wear a mask.” This covers all bases despite the evidence for this being at best negligible and at worst manipulated and dishonest.

It is part of the greater logic that renders every societal value worthless unless it contributes to the impossible task of making sure that not one single individual anywhere, ever, is infected with Covid-19. None of this means I think we should do nothing about this pandemic. But there is now a growing awareness that the cure proposed is not indefinitely sustainable and may in fact be worse than the disease.

The virtue-signalling of face-mask advocates is easily refuted. Facemasks have been available for decades for use in industry and ideas generally considered good are taken up by the public. Nobody needed the government to tell them to go out and buy a car or a television set.

So if you’re so convinced face masks are a good idea why has it taken the State to tell you before you came to this Eureka moment?

And for how many years or decades have you been going around disrespectfully infecting your fellow human beings by going out without a mask when you had a cold or the flu?

However, apparently all the established research is now wrong and face mask wearing is essential. It is a vast game of “Simon Says,” in which we only do anything when Simon says. And it won’t stop there. Expect newspapers like the Guardian to run sanctimonious editorials demanding that face-mask wearing be extended to pubs and restaurants, and eventually to every departure from your home.

Following this such a move will become policy: indeed, the British public will do what they are already doing, gleefully embracing this perverse doctrine, boasting of buying colourful face masks for their children, and showering anyone who has a different point of view with disapproval.

I’m forced now to doubt that we, the British people value our freedom as much as we profess to. We take to the streets in droves to embrace new forms of repression, such as an anarchistic movement that seeks to rewrite history and dismantle our police forces, or an anti-human death cult that seeks to suppress all human activity by frightening us all into believing we are destroying the Earth by existing.

But in the face of mounting attacks on our liberty and our freedom, we are silent. We have had our liberty taken away from us. Our movements are monitored. Our discussions are censored via social media. We are no longer free even to make fundamental choices about our bodies. A public that will silently accept these things has learned nothing from history, will accept anything and deserves its fate if that is a dystopian world-state.

We are no longer entitled to lecture other nations about being repressive states. Their representatives, quite rightly in my view would laugh in our faces. There is a growing fear in the minds of many of us that Western lockdowns may be permanent. The spectres of identity cards, martial law and forced vaccination now hover over us.

Dismissing this as “conspiracy theory” and accusing those who feel this way of an inhuman disregard for life is the rhetoric of fascism, a force that always thrives in the face of a perceived threat. I believe forced face-mask wearing in British streets is a brutal act that crosses the Rubicon, and finally signifies our descent into a de facto repressive state.

“…None of this means I think we should do nothing about this pandemic….”
I came to position all the way back in March that politicians needed to start doing nothing about the plandemic. If the only measures on the table for “doing something” about the “pandemic” are restrictive and not rooted in common sense, then that is what is going to be implemented. Only more restrictive measures will follow the successful implementation of previous restrictive measures. This is exactly what has happened. It is not true the lock downs have not been lifted because of minority of people refusing to wear masks in public. It’s because the majority of people are complying with lock down restrictions, rather than collectively resisting them.
The recent large mass demonstration in Berlin is the best recent example of how the lock downs and restrictions are going to be lifted.

“What is more, face mask wearing was actively discouraged because of limited supplies required for hospital environments, where infection control is king and every precaution makes sense.” That doesn’t make sense. Del Bigtree asked, Do regular people get their masks at the same places as doctors and nurses? And if your answer is that ultimately they all come from the same supplier (So, have the government stop supplying WalMarts etc…), that doesn’t change the fact that the government is lying about science. As it has been from the start. It has to. The hoax can’t go forward without that.

Can anyone please describe how ever you sheeple swallowed this dreck? Ordinary people are powerless to independently verify or observe any contagion threat alleged by the media. Ordinary people experience flu symptoms often – especially when assaulted by constant disease scares – and mostly have no access to scanning election microscopes nor any skills in their use.

Yep. They are calling everything covid 19. That alone should tell people something. When I pointed that out to my ‘caring’ doctor, giving him the example that Scott Jensen gave (death certificates in Minnesota) he was livid. I made him squirm in his warm, comfortable, Rockefeller health care system bubble. He later politely told me that if I wanted to find a different doctor before it was too late (I’m not in perfect health), to feel free to do that. He used diplomatic language, but that’s what he said. I was very, very upset with him. My doctor is making me sick, literally.

I am most struck lately by the increasing press to mask in more places, more of the time, the waxing of restrictions, now, while the statistics clearly indicate a markedly waning risk: https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nvss/vsrr/covid19/index.htm

It feels like the trajectory might at this point be towards hysterical and arbitrary restriction continuing and increasing while eventually also completely divorced from the original threat that started the train down the tracks in the first place. CV-19 might not even be needed as a reason soon, and I suspect many people would feel very vulnerable unmasked now, would not even welcome the chance to be. How easy and fast was that?

Whatever the motivations and mindsets of the Owners, they aren’t half as fascinating to me as what those of the Owned must be. Freedom’s not on the priority list of either, though, that’s clear enough.

The wearing of a face mask will not halt any virus…..a virus is so small you need to see one via an electron microscope…if you look at the ‘pores’ in a mask at the equivalent magnification …..you are speaking grains of rice through a tennis raquet. Boris decided they were a good idea to ‘fool people’ that they had ‘protection’ which enabled them to return to a ‘normal’ way of life….go back to work really. At the start of the fiasco masks were not deemed suitable to halt covid-19. And can someone tell me why Boris is wearing a mask ? He survived covid-19 remember !

True, for unbound viral particles, but a mask technically will halt any that have attached to larger, non-viral particles or mediums, like dust, saliva, etc., so long as the latter is larger than the raquet mesh openings. I don’t know what the ratio of bound to unbound is at-large out there, but the case for masks rests on the bound factor, since you’re right about the unbound. The masks aren’t about transmission or public health, I don’t reckon, in any case. I think this just an obedience, compliance test. I think many have wondered how it was that there was so little rioting or uprisings among those rounded up and encamped by the Nazis, even at the early stages, while still strong, before getting on the trains or just after arriving at camps, or before climbing down into the pits they must have known they were about to die in,… Read more »

There is a perception in the West of China being a repressive country. That doesn’t make Chapman a bigot. Sweden felt no need to mandate mask wearing, and they’ve had great success in simply approaching it as they would their regular seasonal flu season. Given that all viruses thrive in colder climates, this is a slam dunk for those getting their panties in a bunch over people not wearing masks in warmer climates.

It is a badge of serfdom, akin to the yellow star that Jews were forced to wear in Nazi Germany.

You’re just Begging the Question. You’re assuming that wearing a face mask is effective in reducing the spread of a corona virus. N95 masks do not prevent gasses from passing through. They are only effective at catching material that is a millionth of a meter while the virus is a few billionths of a meter. Those masks are woefully inadequate for yours, China’s, or the rest of the world’s stated purpose. I have a 5 micron filter which looks almost exactly like a piece of PVC pipe. Look at PVC pipe, and you will wonder how anything could get through something like that. That’s what is necessary to stop a virus from spreading, not fabric that you can easily breathe through.

Resorting to Ad Hominem only spotlights the fact that you have no argument to begin with so no one is buying into your silly excuse for quitting. Going around accusing people of being racists, and then following that up with this nonsense that they don’t even know it is stretching it to say the least.

Addressing a government mandated regulation isn’t racist. It’s directed at the government’s behavior, which doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with race. It’s directed at a policy, not their race which has nothing to do with it.

Now if Chapman had suggested that these policies are directly related to the Chinese culture, or it’s just a peculiar trait of Chinese people, you might have a point. He never said anything close to that so again, you’re just grasping at straws.

The evidence against any sort of virus pandemic is there, hiding in plain sight, empty hospitals, no reported rise in mortuaries or undertakers workload, little or no testing taking place, nightingale hospitals empty, the NHS being shut down effectively, 95% of the population being healthy and many more.

The truth, however, is that this new world order of digital tyranny comes with a comprehensive social credit system. The People’s Republic of China is the pioneer of this method of surveillance and control of individuals, corporations, and sociopolitical entities.

For the individual, one’s identity is reduced to an app or chip that registers almost any personal activity. In order to gain a few individual rights, and be it only to travel to a certain place, a person must balance such apparent privileges with his submission to a web of regulations that define in detail what is “good behavior” and deemed as beneficial to humankind and the environment. For example, during a pandemic, this sort of control would extend from the obligation of wearing a mask and practicing social distancing to having specific vaccinations in order to apply for a job or to travel.

Ah the glorious Big Brother imagery:

A couple of weeks ago the brotherment announced another 3 billion pounds to keep the Neverland hospitals open and unused until March 2021.That was a reversal of the early May announcement that Neverland hospitals would close.

Is that staffing or maintenance cost? While NHS hospital staff are still under used and forbidden from offering even a full A&E service? The Fraudian said “Funds expected to be used to maintain Nightingale hospitals and increase testing in England.” So still no news on actually staffing.

Was there ever a plan to staff the Neverland hospitals with three shifts over 24 hours? When the London Neverland hospital opened, it was only just 40 patients and it had to turn them away due to lack of staff.

On the matter of the mysterious Nightingale hospitals, I shall reiterate an interesting fact which I mentioned a few weeks ago and which begged many questions. A personal friend of mine – with inside knowledge – told me that the Govt had approached the Westpoint Arena managers in Exeter about using the facility as a Nightingale Hospital. The managers were initially supportive until they were told that the Government would want agreement to hand the facilities over to them for a period of three years. At this, the Arena managers refused the request. My own view is that the intention all along has been to use the facilities as mandatory vaccination centres.

Has to be something like that. Strange they hadn’t ( and still haven’t) isolated the virus then. They’d ‘predicted’ a vaccine would be ready via the software magnate’s ‘people’ in 18 months. So they must have already planned to put this ‘new normal’ in place for years whatever the virus was or is or if we caught on that it doesn’t really exist.It’s a smokescreen for martial law and a mass hypnosis of the sheep programme.

If you look at Operation Lockstep and Event 201, the second wave ( deliberate release of a deadly respiratory pathogen) add expert research on 5G EMF radiation poisoning. It wouldn’t seem too far fetched or tin foil, to suggest that come winter 2020/21 there will be a significant number of compromised immune systems, leading to an increased number of toxic cell symptoms, some of which look exactly like cold/flu symptoms. Could it be that our Eugenics loving overlords from Davos, WEF Great Reset can use covid for cover on the banking fiat collapse, and, if/when turned on fully for 24/7 surveillance 5G becomes very toxic? Hospitals are full of heavy breathers.

Interesting, maybe even accurate, except the article boils down to another display of submission (to the official narrative). Which, inadvertently (or otherwise) works to legitimize it. No refutation of Koch’s postulates = no virus isolation = no disease = no deaths of alleged disease = no rational for draconian policies (including masks and many other rhetorical devices, all skillfully designed layers that divide, distract and legitimize coroni). It seems this whack a mole approach does little to change or, better yet, define the narrative on this apparent massive fraud/crime.

” This covers all bases despite the evidence for this being at best negligible and at worst manipulated and dishonest. ” My perspective is that if people who talk like this don’t want to seem like they are sticking to a belief for the sake of it, and if they truly wanted to convince people of their belief, they would be touting references to information that supports their belief at every opportunity – such as in this essay.

To me, intuitively, it makes perfectly logical sense that you might be reducing the “viral load” expelled an transmitted by using masks. Maybe I am wrong.. but no one talks about – oh, 5 units of virus is less or more dangerous than 10 units of virus. Why not try to actually be convincing instead of leaving it up to one’s imagination?

The scientific consensus is 1) that the efficacy of face masks against the spread of COVID-19 is unknown, and 2) that the non-professional use of non-professional face masks in dusty, inadequately sterilized environments is at best minimally effective. (Use your search engine to check this for yourself: the evidence is abundant.) No scientific reason was given for the WHO’s changing its advice from “not-recommended” to “recommended”. Presumably, the reasons were “political” rather “scientific”–which raises the questions “Who lobbied WHO to change its advice?” and “Who has enough cloud with the WHO’s inner circles to coax them to do so?” Viruses are too small to get caught in the maze of a mask, unless they are packaged in droplets. However, how many seconds does it take for a droplet to evaporate / dry up? What happens then to the viruses? Once free they supposedly move in a “Brownian motion”, perhaps unto… Read more »

Crushing coronavirus means ‘breaking the habits of a lifetime.’ Behavior scientists have some tips – Science, Apr 16, 2020
“To beat the pandemic, we need “a more rapid change of behavior than I can think of in recent human history,” says Robb Willer, a sociologist at Stanford University. He recently helped recruit more than 40 top behavioral scientists to summarize their field’s research on how to steer people into certain actions and how it might aid the response to the pandemic.”

OK, so some time earlier he had already reached out. Because they already had a paper ready to go on Mar 24, 2020: Using social and behavioural science to support COVID-19 pandemic response

And I’m sure that would lead back to an earlier date. This was clearly planned in advance.

Crackpot wankers like George Monbiot try to tell us that it is the epitome of Neoliberal thinking to refuse the mask : a selfish concern for oneself put above the collective good. This is a total inversion though when you think about it. This virus like any other virus can only be ultimately brought under control by either our collective immune systems or (it is alleged) through a successful vaccine – which is really a shortcut route to the same result. To block the route to ‘herd immunity’ through distancing or masking is making the former less likely and the latter more likely. The latter is the enclosure of our bodies’ immune response, and enclosure is the first key feature of the capitalist encroachment. The collectivist response should be the same as that of the most ardent individualist libertarian : to allow nature to take its course for the good… Read more »

I think we need to look beyond appearance. Take a peep at the darker purpose. Look behind the mask of those who wanted to close our mouths both symbolically and literally. I think many saw this coming more than a few weeks ago. The ritualistic hand-washing, the training of us to mentally mark out 2 metres to distance ourselves from others, the collective applauding to order of whoever we were told to, the ‘taking the knee’. We have become a really well trained herd . Well, most of us have. Us black sheeple don’t believe the hype. It isn’t too late to start from the beginning. To retrace the steps of a nightmare. See where those signposts were that we missed. When, back in March, we were updated daily about this strange pandemic that was touring China and America and had it’s sights on the UK , I smelled a rat.I… Read more »

Fascism is here live and well. Bracket creep fascism has been occurring in western sphere countries since Thatcherism and Reaganomics. Hence social ,economic and political shifts have been ever going right since then. The shear transfer of wealth that we have witnessed in the last 4 months is astounding. The .01 percent have just managed to become 26 percent wealthier.The largest wealth gap since the Gilded age has all happened since 1979 to this day. Working class people have been rebranded to the classless one size fits all(avarice and greed) smokey mirror. Since Septembre 2019 the global economy was hitting a wall. The repo markets in the financial and banking sector was the canary in the mine moment with regards to the lack of health the economy was going through. While all this was going on we the sheeple were just prodding along not noticing anything for the simple fact… Read more »

Thank you, a superb analysis and one with which I very largely agree. It’s a terrible state of affairs. I am currently avoiding the shops having stocked up on food. I may have to go into them at some point, but it will be as briefly and as infrequently as possible. I will not be muzzled. I think that the mask wearing possibly has it’s root in our government’s secret admiration for the Chinese. They couldn’t wait to build those “nightingale” hospitals in order to prove they were as clever as them. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. I think it’s the same with the masks. They’re just copying the Chinese. This is a government of occupation. A regime of fools and clowns. As Peter Hitchens says, they haven’t got a clue what they are doing.

I think I can state that the people here believe that you have to have good evidence of utility (that masks demonstrably work) combined with very substantial benefits (a large number of people will be saved) before removing an individual’s right to choose whether to wear a mask.

The Swiss have neither and are just running like scared cats, what you really mean’t to say was that the evidence-free mob now rules Switzerland. Like the other sheeple calling for compulsory masks, the Swiss sheeple do not believe in personal choice or scientific evidence. Faced with fear they have discarded their principles: something the Swiss tend to do.

Having spent a few years living in Switzerland, it is the last place I would refer to as “civilized”. Wealthy yes, civilized no.

We are filling the Internet with information rich in sentiment analysis, a goldmine for folks like Martin Seligman at UPenn’s World Wellbeing Project to analyze for insights into our collective consciousness during a time of stress and uncertainty. We are being coerced into creating training data to inform efforts like DARPA’s Ground Truth program and the DoD’s Minerva Research Initiative. Sandy Pentland at MIT has run living labs to digitally track populations for years in cities like Trentino, Italy. Now it feels like we’ve all been co-opted into one giant experiment. Those in power are working their magic to “learn” the social physics of pandemic.

We are currently fighting against AI and an evolving programme. AI has enabled the entire planet to move in lock-step with this massive pre-cull Psyop called Covid-19. As people resist the herding / find work arounds, AI moves to counter them by deploying its sheep dogs (Governments) to get them back in line. Next step is complete financial dependence of the people on Government. This will be achieved by a massive economic squeeze to coincide with the (potentially postponed) US elections, and the (potentially posponed) Brexit. Once people have been forced into dependence upon Government handouts / support / bailouts, that will be when the AI begins the network programme – that is treating each ‘carbon unit’ / person as a drone in a collective. Each drone will be linked by electronics (phones initially, then nano-tech & 5G) to the hive and the AI. Think ‘Borg’ on steroids – ultimate… Read more »

The Cult of the Billionaires is rubbed in our faces. Another way of showing who’s boss.

Strangely it lacks the glamour of yesterday’s millionaires. Could that be because we know more about its sordid underbelly?

Is it because they’re ensnared by the sex cults from Epstein to Raniere, with all the human trafficking and intelligence dirt that involves? Or because so many are clearly the product of B-list dynasties that hang around like a bad smell: the Gates’ and the Musk-Haldemans.

Are we put off by the fakeness of dozy-faced Zuckerdroid and the equally “put there” Bezos-Jorgenson-Gise?

Perhaps the Internet still lets us find the history of their companies: the early funding from the Security State; the Pentagon pilot projects with an eerie similarity to the eventual Silicon Valley “start up”; and the real inventors of Facebook and email such as McKibben and Ayyadurai?

You need to divorce the “public health” aspect of mask wearing from the “inept government messing everone about” aspect. Its now well known that a simple face mask will signiifcantly reduce the likelyhood of disease transmission. That said, the likelyhood of catching anything from a casual constact — passing in the street, for example — is reckoned to be close to zero. You only need to use masks in enclosed spaces where there’s a danger of “breathing someone else’s air”. It really seems to be that sipmle so its difficult to figure out why governments a making such a pig’s ear of it. The problem seems to be particularly acute in parts of English and American society that see wearing a mask as a political issue — its not a public health issue, its a question of preserving freedom or something like that.

If I needed to become infected with Covid — or any other easily transmissible virus – then I couldn’t think of a better place to pick it up than a crowded bar. You’re right that wearing a mask is pointless — it really is in that situation — so have at it. Do your bit for herd immunity. I’m not sure what view the people working in the pub have about this, they may also feel that this is their choice or they may feel that they’re being pressured into being in a situation where their health could be compromised because they need that job.

Incidentally, the rules for public houses are like other private spaces that are open to the public. Their space, their rules. If the publican says you need masks and stuff and you don’t like it then just take your custom elsewhere.

As recommended by bob, who I agree with almost every word he writes. I haven’t yet read much of Dave McGowans book on the subject yet, but a lot of what he did write on his blog – well ahead of me, and everyone else…this maybe (oh fckin hell – I must reboot my computer -if my ex appears that was a mistake)…but she will like it This is http://www.laurelcanyonradio.com/ My wife has gone to a Girls only Party, so I am home alone again, cos unlike some others, I have no intention of trying to fake it, but could if I really wanted to. It is still my own hair and it is getting quite long, and bleached blonde in the sunshine. If I can’t get it to work – it does come from Los Angeles I guess, I will probably put on Planet Rock.

Laurel Canyon had only about 40 live radio listeners. It is now going rapidly down, now at 33. I wouldn’t have thought, it could have been banned by The UK that quick. Maybe the Americans have a technical hitch.

So I will try Planet Rock.

It was a very long time ago. She had two kids when I met her.

Laurel Canyon still works. I just pulled out my headphone lead whilst dancing.

Sorry about that

The sound is fine.

Now Playing on Laurel Canyon “Bonnie Raitt – I Feel The Same” I know lots of English and Welsh musicians who have moved to California, and most of them are still alive, and occasionaly come back to England, and do a UK Live Tour, and I know several who who were planning to do, before this ridiculous Lockdown… From a live music and cutural music perspective… Engand has always been much closer to California, than New York… We will never forgive the people in New York, for assassinating John Lennon That is completely unforgivable. You Californians wouldn’t do that, and you most certainly didn’t kill Lemmy, who I actually met, who I met playing pinball, at the back of The Marquee in Soho London, in 1982. He lived on a barge boat on The Thames.. I asked what the hell are you doing here in London? A complete and utter… Read more »

Listen to Cygnet Committee by Bowie. It’s 1984 flavoured and years ahead of it’s time. Then try the whole of the Diamond Dogs album. Throw in ‘five years’ for good measure. Bowie was seeing this from the 60s when he was unknown.

WSWS editors are fuming about profiteering of big Pharma from coronavirus supposed disastrous pandemic or are they? Enter Moderna Inc., a ten-year-old biotechnology firm that is researching one of the 164 different candidates for a coronavirus vaccine. On Tuesday, the Financial Times reported that the company is currently planning to charge the US and other governments $25 to $30 for a dose of its drug. The pharmaceutical giant’s attitude was spelled out most crudely by Stephen Hoge, Moderna’s president, who made nearly $5 million last year and who said at a congressional hearing last week, “We will not sell it at cost.” Moderna’s price point is high even compared to other companies in the vaccine sweepstakes, such as Pfizer, which has reached a deal with the US government for $19.50 per dose of its vaccine, and AstraZeneca, which has signed a deal with the Netherlands, Germany, France and Italy for… Read more »

Yes, the threat posed by the virus and, by implication, the need for a vaccine was something the WSWS presupposed and indeed did so right from the start. And yet again I see a parallel with 9/11. I don’t know what the WSWS position on that event was at the time but it is certainly true that the vast majority of the (mainstream) Left just went along with the mainstream account of 9/11 and indeed became ferociously hostile to those who questioned it. And the impotence of their position became increasingly obvious. The moment you assume that there truly was an external force menacing the West, it doesn’t matter how much you say that the West invited the attacks by e.g. imperialist aggression. The basic sentiment is “Hey those bastards have it in for us and you’re trying to excuse them?” It’s similar with COVID only, as it were, on… Read more »

strangely, the WSWS was one of the very few “left” organizations that DID NOT uncritically accept the official 9/11 faery tale, nor other similar events since. what they once knew, they’ve rather recently forgotten, for some reason that has not been explained.

I know they question it now. That they did so at the beginning is in their favour. Which only makes it more disappointing that they just swallowed the COVID line.

I don’t “need” a flu vaccine, so why do I “need” a Covid vaccine? What sociopath is telling me to do what he wants? Is it the Johnson or the “Pedo Bill” Gates? Why would I not resist? A team of scum bags telling me what is best for me. Give us a break.

Look at the bigger picture. It took them years to finish. Until covid you had choice and your decision was respected. Now the script is telling us that covid carries a gun, knife and gas mask. So the public are to report anyone not vaccinated as they are deliberately endangering the sheep. I mean idiots. Sorry, I mean public. I always get those confused.

All my colleagues were discussing it this morning. I had no idea about it cos I don’t watch MSM. Apparently they are doing as they are told by newsreaders and tweets now. Truly pathetic. I am giving filthy looks to anyone who deigns to look at me re a mask, and mask wearers in general.

There’s no statutory instrument.
It’s not law.
It’s just guidance.
Even if it was law, it would be unenforceable.
And the police have said they wouldn’t even try to enforce it.
So Eid Mubarak to all the Muslims of Greater Manchester.
And for those who aren’t believers in the prophet Muhammad, I think a midnight feast with your extended family round sounds like a lovely idea anyway.

You can add the dumb temperature checks to that. I was 32C the other day, according to a government health check performed by a waitress at the door of a restaurant. What are these idiots playing at, pointing cheap temperature guages at your forehead?

Makes you wonder why a doctor will stick a temperature guage up the arse of a patient just to take their temperature? Well obviously it is not “just” to take their temperature if a waitress at a restaurant can do it with a cheap piece of shit churned out of China without ever having been calibrated. The doctor is obviously getting more out of this than just temperature.

Government is full of idiots: only a numb brain could survive such a soul destroying job.

Just heard it on the news:

“With so many new cases why are people being allowed to return to work?”

YES YES YES! We get it. This plague will not be permitted to go away!

The media of course is just standing there all innocent – a totally neutral third party …but it is telling us what will be!

And how interestingly elastic and impressively scary are these new fatality figures!

And on that note, I think I’m starting to understand. This has nothing to do with the choices of politicians. The media stands there all blinking eyed innocence but essentially it works by posing a choice that has already been made. In this case, the media says, “Well we can either recklessly send everyone back to work and watch them die horribly OR we can keep everyone safe at home…and now over to the goverment. Oh what will you do?”

Got it in one George. Murdoch has often said he can make or break governments, here is the living proof of that. My question is safe from what exactly? Since 95% of the population won’t get it in any event. This corrupt Tory Government relies and relied on the corrupt, malicious, poisonous MSM and State broadcasters to bank roll them to the General Election win. The problem is, Boris needs them so he’ll do what they say.
