In The Flesh: The Oxford Anti-LTN March What really went down at the anti-Low Traffic Neighbourhood (LTN) march last weekend

JJ Starky

Some protests are torrid affairs. Others can prove enlightening. The march last Saturday in the heart of Oxford was the latter.

Attendees rocked up nearly 2 hours before the scheduled meet, poised with their homemade placards, ready to dissent. It was truly an eclectic mix. Tweed jackets juxtaposed grey baggy trackies, edgy high-tops contrasted brown Chelsea boots, dreadlocks neighboured crew cuts, with all unified under one mission – to say no to Oxfordshire County Council’s creeping authoritarianism.

Last year, the Council announced plans to impose Low Traffic Neighbours (LTN) across the city. Councillors justified the £6.5 million schemes by declaring that they will “greatly reduce” motor vehicle traffic in residential streets. They purport to achieve this by two means. First, bollards will be placed to block off certain streets. Second, LTN zones will be designated and monitored by cameras recording license plates, so if residents drive in zones they have not purchased a permit for, they will be fined. Upon that fine being ignored, they would likely be jailed.

Multiple consultations were then held late last year. The response from locals was overwhelming. 65% of them wholly disapproved. Only 7% endorsed the proposals in another consultation. With some notably citing, the schemes would make certain journeys up to 10 times longer. Acclaimed actress Florence Pugh’s father, who owns a shop in a LTN-designated area, revealed the council failed to consult local shop owners like him. He likewise expressed frustration over footfall decreases since lockdowns and how LTN’s were almost guaranteed to worsen the situation.

At 1pm on the dot, the speeches began. Several speakers took the stage but one 12-year-old girl stole the show. The anti-Greta, if you will.

There she stood, impressively reading out a pre-written speech that progressively exposed the irrationality behind the council’s plans point-by-point. Crowd members clapped intermittently. And then came the punchline, “To Klaus Schwab…”, she paused, “how dare you!”. Everybody loved it. Children in politics should really be a no no. But to witness an anti-woke one actively fighting to preserve her freedom rather than simping for the current political vogue, by God it was refreshing.

Admittedly, we may or may not have popped to the pub to down a quick ale at this point before rejoining. So we missed the start of the march. When we rejoined, we were confused. The crowd had nearly quadrupled in size.

Chants of freedom rang aloud for the better part of the next 2 hours. Plenty of bypassing youths looked perplexed. Some took videos with disapproving smirks. You could almost see them twitching their thumbs in anticipation of posting about the Alex Jones loons they’d just seen. Several cab drivers beeped their horns in support, smiling and waving vigorously as they did. It was an out and out, peaceful success.

Only the next day did we see coverage of Antifa agitators. Apparently, a dozen or so turned up but were quickly cordoned off by police and dispersed after a bloke trolled them with a hearty rendition of Frank Sinatra’s “That’s Life”. Then came the barrage of articles from various local and legacy media journalists.

The Oxford Mail tainted marchers by highlighting that a “Neo-Nazi” was in attendance. LBC’s James O’Brien labelled everyone attending “conspiracy theorists and anti-vaxxers”. But one journalist, Dave Vetter, went further and purveyed in what can only be called live gaslighting.

According to Vetter, live-tweeting his perspective, it was an “intoxicating mix of far-right conspiracy slogans, antisemitism and really terrible hip-hop”. He concluded “the rally is, at heart, a climate denial protest”.

In reality, while there were some radical deductions espoused, these were minute, the vast majority of people were simply expressing their desire not to be restricted by local government. No signs we saw referred to Jewish people. And the hip-hop was a sheer sight better than what Vetter is probably capable of. Tellingly, Vetter only mentioned the word freedom once in his thread, which is slightly strange, provided it was the most common word featured on placards. Instead, the likes of the Oxford Mail, O’Brien, and Vetter focused on sporadic elements, deploying typical guilt-by-association devices designed to reassure readers that all these crackpots aren’t to be taken seriously.

Vetter then linked a “video explainer” at the end of his thread to show how 15-minute-cities are a “win for everyone”. From the get-go, again, the presenter gaslights. Ominously, we are told a strain of opposition (virus-connotations likely intended) is growing that is fatally misunderstanding these schemes for “open air prisons enforced by a police state from their enclosed zone”.

So let’s recap: Oxford Council proposes plans to restrict and regulate traffic in the city. They ignore locals’ obvious rejection. Planned rollouts of the scheme continue with the council investing in cameras to monitor and fine those in breach of the scheme – sounds quite authoritarian to me. Again, there was no mention of infringements on freedom. Nor was there any reference to the clear subversion of local democracy, which is more or less a facade nowadays.

Entirely absent from almost all coverage is the money that Oxfordshire County Council stands to make.

According to citizen journalist, Dulwich Clean Air, Southwark council issued 37,006 PCN fines to drivers going through 5 ANPR cameras (same as Oxford intends to use) in Dulwich’s LTN zone in only 65 working days in May 2021. That amounted to £4,810,780, which is £74,012 per day. Oxford has an estimated population of about half that of Southwark. That equates to roughly £37,000 in fines per day and £13,505,000 a year.

No wonder Oxfordshire Council want to join the party…

What the protest really showed, however, is as much as national governments are guilty of a mission creep towards a kind of plastic moral governance, so are local councils. Per Oxfordshire County Council’s cabinet member for travel and development strategy, Duncan Enright’s own words, these schemes are “going to happen definitely” (whether the public like it or not).

In short, we know better. So the herd must follow our moral plans even if they disapprove. It is the same existential issue afflicting government at the national level. Turns out, it has captured government at the local level too. The ends justify the means for these legislators. Until that is reversed at both macro and micro-level, these protests will grow in number.

Dozens upon dozens of councils across the UK, meanwhile, announce similar traffic schemes to dissenting choruses.

Speaking of FLESH, y’know that lab-grown flesh:

“The big honking asterisk is that normal meat cells don’t just keep dividing forever. To get the cell cultures to grow at rates big enough to power a business, several companies, including the Big Three, are quietly using what are called immortalized cells, something most people have never eaten intentionally. Immortalized cells are a staple of medical research, but they are, technically speaking, precancerous and can be, in some cases, fully cancerous.

The article puts a “human face” on some of these cell lines, for example, the “HeLa line” made from the cervical cancer of Henrietta Lacks:”

The scammers are trying all kinds of tricks. The comments on thia article are actually quite reassuring, everyone is saying they won’t be fooled again, just try it and see what happens kind of thing. The scum have now lost a lot of their control, their game relies on people being ignorant to the fact that they are a bunch of conman scumbags scheming against the common man. WIthout that, they just look like what they are – a bunch of conmen. It’s also worth mentioning pilfering and stealing, because these people are big time scumbags when it comes to stealing from the public purse.

Read this crap. It all sounds so tired and staged – because it’s a bullshit corporate scumbag industry – virus and flu terrorism.

Bird flu: UK public health officials consider introducing lateral flow tests to test for virus in people (msn.com)

Public health officials are considering introducing lateral flow tests to detect avian flu in people in the UK after an unprecedented spread of the virus in birds worldwide in the past 18 months.

As part of the increased planning and surveillance, the UKHSA said it is looking at whether lateral flow devices could be deployed to test for H5N1 in humans in the event of asymptomatic transmission among people.
Officials are also looking at developing a blood test that could detect antibodies against the virus and analysis of the genetic mutations that would signal an increased risk to human health.
The planned measures are in contrast to the preparedness in the early stages of the Covid pandemic, when officials and ministers have admitted they were not aware of the extent of asymptomatic transmission of the virus, allowing it to spread undetected through human populations.
At present, the risk of bird flu in humans is described as low, and the only cases have been among poultry workers or others who come into close contact with infected birds.
But in recent weeks there have been recorded incidents of the virus affecting mammals, with fears that it could evolve to spread more easily between wildlife.
Scientists are concerned that the virus could at some stage evolve further to spread between humans and trigger the next pandemic.
The latest assessment from the UKHSA says: “To facilitate preparedness, planning and improvements to surveillance, scenarios of early human transmission are being developed. Parameters for early human outbreak scenarios were agreed by the Technical Group.”
The UKHSA said it is “working with partners to identify ‘knowledge gaps’ around avian influenza, including whether lateral flow devices could be deployed to test for H5N1 in humans, developing a blood test that detects antibodies against the virus and analysis of the genetic mutations that would signal an increased risk to human health”.
Epidemiological analysis of avian flu in the UK shows that, despite a compulsory housing order imposed last autumn, the H5N1 virus has continued to spread in the wild bird population.
There have been 131 cases of avian flu in mammals since October 2021.
Since October, officials have been taking samples from 2,310 people who have had contact with infected birds and no positive cases have been found.
The UKHSA technical briefing says “whilst the very high levels of transmission in wild birds presents a constant risk, there is no evidence so far that the virus is getting better at infecting humans or other mammals”.
But it adds: “While the evidence suggests that the virus does not pass easily to people, there is an increased chance of people coming into contact with the virus due to the high levels in birds.”
The UKHSA urges people to avoid contact with sick or dead wild birds in public areas such as parks or waterways, and wash hands after feeding wild birds.
Dr Meera Chand, incident director for avian influenza at UKHSA, said: “The latest evidence suggests that the avian influenza viruses we’re seeing circulating in birds do not currently spread easily to people. However, viruses constantly evolve, and we remain vigilant for any evidence of changing risk to the population, as well as working with partners to address gaps in the scientific evidence.

An introduction heavily weighted towards the recent earthquakes which are brought into the general mix of horror. (Was that fortuitous or are some of the more outlandish Ickean claims about “natural” disaster manufacture accurate?)

Then a note on how “the Ukraine war” is “exacerbating health needs, including for mental health and psychosocial support, rehabilitation, treatment for diseases like chronic diseases and others such as cancer, HIV and tuberculosis, and vaccinations for measles, polio and pneumonia and” of course “COVID”.

“WHO has delivered nearly 3,000 metric tonnes … of life saving medical supplies including ambulances, generators, medicines for chronic diseases and trauma and surgery emergency supplies to Ukraine since the start of the conflict.”

Just pause there for a consideration of the staggering cost given over to this manufactured catastrophe.

Moving on to the now thoroughly threadbare case of “the pandemic”. Naturally the same autistically repeated blurb is … well, repeated:

“… the benefits of vaccination and boosting. .. the research reinforces that vaccination and boosting also reduce the likelihood of patients with COVID-19 from having a heart attack or stroke” (?!) “…. continue to vaccinate and boost their populations …. most at-risk groups, including older people and health workers. … maintain and strengthen surveillance … this virus should not be underestimated. It’s … important to invest in research in order to develop vaccines ….”

The crucial passage:

“Next week, countries will begin negotiations on a zero draft of the new pandemic accord. These discussions will be crucial for building a more effective health security architecture for the future, grounded in international law, equity and the fundamental right to health for all people.”

After all, “right now the world remains unprepared for another pandemic”.

After which a lot of civilised back-and-forward discussion with sage nodding of heads. The content of this expert concern can be assessed through this:
 
“We continue to advise the use of masks as part of a comprehensive strategy to reduce transmission of COVID-19. The virus is circulating pretty much unchecked around the world at the moment and masks, the appropriate use of masks over your nose and mouth, are one of the ways in which we can reduce the spread and we can prevent infection, we can prevent transmission.”

April 2020 has never passed. Nor will it ever. The real aim of this obsessive monomaniacal drone lies in that “more effective health security architecture” referred to above. Though the word “health” is a necessary deceit. More effective security is what this is all about. And has been from the beginning.

Here’s an article from globalresearch.ca debunking “Climate Change.” Unfortunately, what it succeeds in doing is debunking itself. It falls for the same red herring as the IPCC reports; namely, that Climate Change is ALL about CO2 and therefore bunk.

It points out how essential CO2 is for life – especially plant life. However, as with water, it is possible to get too much of a good thing. Eight ounces of water is very good for living beings; eight feet may not be. And so on.

It’s a very long article. But just keep repeating to yourself: CO2, CO2, CO2; and you’ll come through it okay.

The Tony Blair Institute come out with a paper pushing “innovation” and, as if it’s co-ordinated, up this pops in the Fraud:
https://dumptheguardian.com/technology/2023/feb/23/almost-40-of-domestic-tasks-could-be-done-by-robots-within-decade

I find it interesting because the seams of the design in the propaganda are so obvious. Why 40%? The largest round number that’s not “most” or “the majority”. The lists of tasks robots will and will not supposedly perform have clearly been selected from market research regarding what people feel comfortable with robots doing. Of course robots will be bringing up the children and “caring” for the elderly.

They position the issue as a choice between convenience and privacy. They reckon most will choose the former – and will only have themselves to blame. Putting the squeeze on them (by, oh I don’t know, more home working with external monitoring and increased inflation so people have to work more to make ends meet) might just give them a “nudge” in the “right” direction.

I’m confident that all the AI and robots bs will be just as slow to materialise. Thats to say: never. Sure, one or two oh-goshy! prototypes that will never scale up. But that’s all.

But you know what folks: you who are still so in love with your Noddy-cars that you just have to be allowed to drive EVERYWHERE in them are going to get cold turkey, whether you agree of not, whether you like it or scream the houses down about it, as in Oxford. Peak Everything – particularly Peak Energy – is on the case right now. We have zero choice in the matter. Get used to it.

I keep referencing Godfrey Reggio’s 1983 film “Koyaanisqatsi” and the 1988 follow up “Powaqqatsi.” These films really opened my eyes to the enormity of humanity’s ability to carve up the Earth in its mad rush to extract all of its riches.

And now fast forward 20 yeas, and people like James Corbett (who I otherwise regard as a voice of reason) are still saying there’s no way we can ever exhaust the earth’s resources. We already have! And, as you’ve been saying, the Earth is ready to put a stop to it.

For a hundred years or more, human habitat has been reorganized to require citizens to buy and drive cars. We live “here”; but we work “there”; and we shop yet somewhere else. The joyride is over.

Days ago the Russian MoD (Ministry of Defense) released this statement
— Ahead of the Eleventh Emergency Special Session of the United Nations General Assembly, the Kiev regime continues preparing for a major provocation to accuse the Russian Federation of allegedly ‘gravely violating’ the obligations of the Convention on Nuclear Safety during the special military operation
— To implement this provocation several containers with radioactive substances were delivered to Ukraine from the territory of a European country without passing through customs inspection. These containers will be used to stage local contamination of a region close to one of the radiation hazardous facilities controled by the Kiev regime
— The provocation is aimed at accusing the Russian Armed Forces of alegedly launching indiscriminate strikes on radiation-hazardous facilities in Ukraine, leading to the leakage of radioactive substance and terrain contamination.’

When Italy went into lockdowns in Spring 2020 they did not do it nationally at first.

It was a set of progressively more restrictive decrees that were placed upon certain areas of certain regions, mainly in villages and cities in the Lombardy region at the outset.

Citizens were told to stay home and were banned from entering certain areas with fines levied for those who transgressed. You could move about within these quarantined areas but not from one to the next. These areas were called ‘red zones.’

I believe this was a “pilot project” used to test, among other things, levels of compliance.

As the Covid program moved forward the number of regions that established ‘red zones’ expanded.

It is not too difficult to imagine a scenario where such an attempt, with national characteristics, would be rolled out in numerous locations across Europe and the UK based on the cooked up Biosecurity Surveillance model.

Say your area is now declared a ‘red zone’ and declared as such for whatever reason they deem. You are no longer allowed to travel to a green zone or yellow zone without special permission until the emergency order is lifted.

Your ability to move around from one of these zones to the next will be contingent on your social credit. And that will be determined by all sorts of different systems of accreditation.

How up to date you are on your “safety measures” aka injections will determine to a degree your allowed mobility. Anyone who doubts that this is in the works is asleep.

Don’t know how it is in Europe but here in the states this is going to be very difficult to pull off and very messy if attempted.

Urban planning here is so horrendous that even establishing ‘red zones’ would be an affair in logistical chaos to say the least.

Another problem is how to enforce this. There are large swaths of this country which simply will never go for this and would make the enforcement of this problematic.

Doesn’t mean the technocratic demons won’t give it a go, these zealots read Kafka to get ideas, and create a lot of suffering along the way but it won’t last if it ever gets off the ground.

One of the first red zones established very early in 2020 in Germany was a little town in Bavaria, about 6000 inhabitants. I was born in the neighbouring town, so I went home to see up close what was happening. And indeed, police had blocked all road access (I drove around the town only to meet a police car at every entrance). The only people who got a permission to get out were ‘essential workers’ like the care workers, coming to help my mom. They were all dumstruck but also panicky and no one really questioned the measures. I didn’t try bicycle rides at night across field lanes but I guess they would have had drones flying.
So, the blue print is there and it can be done quite easily. And that’s the countryside not even cities.

‘Councillors justified the £6.5 million schemes by declaring that they will “greatly reduce” motor vehicle traffic in residential streets.’

The public didn’t realise that its they themselves who make up most of the vehicle traffic in residential areas. Most transient traffic tends to stick to main thoroughfares, if they are provided by town planners.
So the big idea seems to be to restrict your local travel whilst copping the blame for decades of bad planning!

Come on people, the global warming is nonsense. Hence the title was dropped after a decades of use. It disappeared up its own Ozone hole and reappeared as ‘climate change’. Which Einstein at the IPCC thought that one up?

The 15min cities, the food restrictions, the travel restrictions, and ultimately, the coming bans & fines & re=education camps, all stem from ‘global warming’ which had to be redefined as ‘climate change’ because it was no longer credible. I wonder what the scam will be called next?

People, do not forget that your gov’t is not your friend. They want to take everything you own. Your basic human rights. Your property. Your right to travel with a fossil fuel engine. Your children. They also want your future as a free human being on the only habitable planet in the solar system.

Are we just going to let the NWO do it? Make no mistake, this isn’t a local policy for the benefit of local people, but a worldwide policy driven by NWO think-tanks. The same people who brought you ‘covid’, lockdowns, and the jab.

We have already seen decades of poor judgement from these people. The future is bleak if we continue to give this nihilist cabal any more funding or credibility.

They tried “the new ice age” first for climate change for a couple of years in the 1970s until the hot summers of 1975 and 1976 made it incredible. The TV programme heralding the new ice age can still be seen – hilariously they got Leonard Nimoy to host it because nothing said “science” like Dr. Spock.

So Ed: the Thames freezing over for several winters five centuries ago didn’t happen? And Norse mariners a thousand years ago didn’t find grapes growing in Newfoundland, leading them to christen North America in their sagas ‘Vinland the Good’? At that time they were even able to grow barley in Greenland.

Climate shifts up and down in a complex cycle, blending together several different natural cosmic processes, each with its own periodicity, as it does. The bulk of it concerns the Earth’s varying distance from the Sun, and the consequent varying of insolation, though the Younger Dryas episode seems to suggest that occasional erratic asteroid strikes can have dramatic effects too.

AGW, otoh, seems to be a very minor, and recent, contributor. The fact of the matter is that we little human farties have no clear way to predict what the climate will do in the future. But looking at the paleontological past, it’s evident that it can leap about quite a lot.The rabid apostles of AGW are bullshitting themselves and anyone else who takes them too seriously.

I think those who presently live in america will confirm that the planet isn’t warming.

There are some signs which may give those who believe the planet is cooling some credibility. Record amounts of ice in the Arctic, low solar activity are just a few pointers.
Also our winter season seems to be getting longer. For the last few years at least, winter seems to be giving way to summer, with a very short spring time inbetween.

It’s all conjecture for the moment, apart from the ‘climate change’ and ‘global warming’ nonsense pushed by the IPCC. That has been debunked over and over. To know what the future holds we have to listen to mother nature and not suits in gov’t.

Thanks for the email link. I’ll let him know my feelings.
You are correct in stating that local councils are getting the flak for what is a global NWO policy. Our rogue gov’t is merely passing on these instructions given to them, to give to local councils. The NWO want to implement their tyranny and make it seem like local decisions, made by locals. The rogue western gov’ts will then operate as bag men for the NWO.

Many of these Councillors are not from a scientific background. They understand nothing of science and what they have been told by gov’t ‘scientists’ is all bogus. It’s what to expect from a rogue gov’t who wants to profit whilst they increase your misery with yet more ill-thought climate nonsense.

I will repeat the statement above because it is important and is the means by which the NWO intend to implement their control of everything.

Well said, Peter. Just a few quibbles: Anthropogenic global warming may well be a fake. Studying the work of the dissident scientists, I’m inclined to think so too. But Peak Everything, and most particularly Peak Energy, isn’t. Deny that as we please, it’s coming to get us.

And there’s no such thing as a “basic right to travel with a fossil fuel engine”  😂  That’s been (past tense) a mere privilege that we of the world’s Pampered Twenty Percent have awarded ourselves briefly; leaving out the Abused and Deprived Eighty Percent, of course. But we too shall be learning to do without that in future. Regardless of the authoritarian fantasies of the powers that shouldn’t be, that will be happening anyway.

If there happens to be anyone amongst either the editorial group or the btls here who is actually open to cold-blooded reality on this over-riding matter, this conversation linked below gives a good basic grounding as to why this is – inexorably – so:

There is a basic right to travel. The choice for doing so will be in the hands of others who couldn’t care less about people’s rights or wishes.
You may well know that this planet has gone through many cycles of cooling and warming. All the planets in our solar system do the same.
What we are experiencing is an attempt to control and has nothing to do whatsoever with the climate, or saving humans, now or in the future.

We still have massive pockets of oil and gas which remain undiscovered. The USA have reserves they haven’t even tapped. We hear quite regulary of such discoveries. This means that we very probably have enough oil for the next few hundred years at least.
So why the panic? we have enough time to develop something else that works as well as a petrol or diesel engine. The alternative we have at present isn’t going to cut it. I don’t feel like queuing for a few hours to charge my car. And i don’t want the thing to turn into a blow torch whilst i’m sitting at the lights. Some electric cars are already responsible for lots of traffic deaths that needn’t have happened.

All this talk of ‘sustainability’ yet the ‘green energy’ is less efficient that existing technology, by a mile. So far many of the green projects have been white elephants or get rich quick schemes.

I know you mean well, but I refuse to believe the panic inducing reports from gov’t depts. There is no need to shut down the world because of a threat which is way in the future IMO.

Peter, please look a little deeper – well, a whole lot deeper actually – into fossil-hydrocarbon realities; particularly the crucial, but little-grasped, idea of EROEI – energy returned on energy invested (also known as ECoE: energy cost of energy). Trending inexorably down towards its cut-off ratio as we watch. Most of the low-EROEI fossil-hydrocarbons will stay deep in the ground, because – well – why waste more energy getting them out, transporting and processing them than the finished product actually yields…? Net loss of energy! Oh yes, very ‘sustainable’.  😂 

That alone (and there are other insuperable barriers as well; see links below) means that the hopeless fantasy of ‘loads more oil still available; loads more still to find’ is just that: a hopeless fantasy. As is the idea of ‘some alternative form of energy beyond fossil-hydrocarbons and just as portable and energy-dense’, Name one? Name any current bit of startrekkytechietechie that even offers a faint hope of such a thing? Realistically rather than sci-fi fantasy-style, I mean.

Zilch! The world is at Peak Energy right now, if not already starting to slide with gathering momentum down the backslope.

And as for this comical idea of a ‘basic right to travel’ [FFS!  😂 ]: Sure. Humankind have been doing it for all of our species-lifespan; and our predecessor hominids too. On foot. No other ‘right’ is offered to us by evolution or by the current disposition of life on Earth. Sorry all you Noddies of the Pampered Twenty Percent: your dinky little cars are going away; permanently. Give it a century or so, then get re-born and take another look…

Also, take a look at these two Nate Hagens interviews; one with systems-ecologist Prof. William Rees, the other with physicist Tom Murphy. They go very clearly into the real controllers of our current situation; and we – hom-sap – aren’t it; not now, not ever. As Tom Murphy makes crystal clear, our one realistic option is to get back into harmony with the real controllers: Mam Gaia, who rules the Earth, and Dad Sol, who rules the constantly-cycling up and down insolation of the Earth. (Great presences whom you may treat as metaphors, or as literal real conscious beings; whichever feels most comfortable to you; but the real controllers of our situation, either way):

I had heard about Oxford’s plans but didn’t know that other areas were already implementing it, much less that it was a serious cash cow.

Some means of restricting traffic is necessary but this is likely not the best way to go about it. Its just the simplest way which coincidentally makes a lot of money for minimal investment — the perfect business model. (Especially for the contractors that set up and administer the scheme — I’d be very surprised if it was implemented by the council, they’re just in the business of selling the rights for a percentage. Anyone know for sure?) I would have no argument with this is public transport was of sufficient quantity and quality to make driving unnecessary. But that would require too much investment and wouldn’t be a money spinner so its off the table.

The 1% ruling class has had 75 years to design a solution to pollution, congested traffic, too many cars, and long lines. When they regulated and implemented society into giant box stores and wiped out small local block by block pedestrian business neighborhoods they created the dystopian, polluted, long-lined and congested lives WE HAVE BEEN FORCED TO ACCEPT today. By occupying government rule and assuming it then has authority over the 99%, this ruling class has removed any authority governing themselves and rule over us as parents over children. They live in their own bubble of anarchy, rulerlessness, where they do anything they want.

All of this needs to be reversed. We the 99% must rule over ourselves with recorded and agreed upon consent formulas in a direct democracy. We need to rule over limits to wealth and poverty, so that vast capitalist wealth cannot dictate dystopian futures for Humanity. After 72 years of watching the US incrmentally transformed from the relative equality of a documented 5 to 1 wealth to poverty ratio in the 1950’s, to a 150+ to 1 wealth to poverty ratio today, where the bottom 90% live essentially paycheck-to-paycheck, the need for this reversal is obvious.

It should start 5 years ahead of implementation with a vast improvement in public transport which should be free. All elderly and / or disabled drivers as well as delivery and emergency vehicles should be able to go wherever they want / need so no bollards could be constructed. With incentives not to drive, people will eventually move away from car ownership but only if the alternative is viable and reliable.

Missing the point mate.. Air pollution in cities is an issue for folks health.. Continue to drive around in our petrol/diesel cars as we do in rural areas and long distance.. No problem.. Where there’s higher traffic volume in densely populated areas it makes sense to have cars that don’t pump out the exhaust fumes.. No need for nonsense schemes like 15 minute cities if air powered cars were manufactured and made affordable for city use.. Of course we all know on here (apart from the trolls) that the 15 minute city is part of a more sinister agenda, but folk are led to believe there’s no viable alternative.. I’ve not got a problem with using energy to fill the compressed air tanks.. Pretty cheap for a full tank.

I agree, we should all do more walking or cycling. However, the car has got its top spot of being the preferred way to travel because it is so convenient. In these days of convenience sold to us by corporations and gov’t, we are told that we cannot use the most convenient method of travel ever invented by man.

The people pushing for these changes are fanatics. Allowing fanatics to take over has never ended well. They are blinkered thinkers who have done most of their thinking inside the box.

There are lots of ways to deal with congestion, but this NWO directive isn’t about relieving congestion.

The Smart phone is the 21st Century version of the Panopticon. As to your opinion, how much have you looked into Surveillance Capitalism? With the Smart phone they are tracking your physical location, anything conversation you are having on the phone and who you are having it with, they are tracking any online search, websites, videos, anything at all you do on the phone. The Smart phone can even listen in on face to face conversations when you are not even using your phone. All that info is saved, flagged, cataloged and sold to data mining companies.

I hope you recognize that is a false choice. I assume that for both of us neither is facing a prison sentence (which would not be a choice you’d be “given”). However, by using a Smart phone, most of the surveillance aspects of being in prison are similar. It is sort of like being on parole w/o being aware of it. Assuming you are aware of the surveillance abilities of Smart phones and still want to use one, then you have made a choice that you don’t care about being surveilled. To quote Simon Elmer: “Convenience breeds compliance.”

Toady Blaaar ia a true turncoat. He ditched the Tory party when he saw his best chance of gaining power being in the Labour party. So the Labour party adopted a cuckoo for a leader who didn’t espouse to any Labour ideology whatsoever.
The Tories wandered into the wilderness after many years of shafting the public and selling off everything the public had owned and built via public money.

Then Toady ditched the people of Blighty for the NWO and £100 million….and rising.

The story (also called a article in today world) was written by a disgruntled Tory /  Brexit Party strategist  printed by a outlet who is allegedly disgruntled ex lefties who where banned from the guardian (now doing similar them selves on this blog, had to say it from my experience here so far.)
Now posting Yankee Doodle Conservative contrived talking points and shilling dodgy as hell organizers and manufactured appearances from actors faking it as concern children.

Step back for one minute and try to think….!? is there a HQ of information that is posted daily on twitter to generate the viral talking points allowed to talk about…..??

There is nothing cutting edge from what I see, only managed HQ of information (disinformation) being put into the atmosphere of theses so called alternative networks which it isnt.

Basing the argument on lack of consultation is a mistake in my view. Fundamental rights like freedom of movement can’t be taken away even if a temporary majority can be duped into acquiescing to it.

Jasmine’s Greta joke was fun but her more serious point was about why her parents might need to make journeys to a different zone. A middle-aged parent with children who have friends in a different zone and parents in a care home in another zone (hardly an unlikely combination of circumstances) is utterly screwed by these proposals. What are they supposed to do? Everyone knows what TPTB’s real answer is – meet on Zoom or, better still, don’t have a family in the first place.

Finally, there’s no need to be evasive about “climate-denial”. Manmade climate change is pseudo-scientific garbage.

There seems to be an ideological bias within this forum in favor of the notion that mankind is incapable of inflicting significant harm on the planet. Accordingly, manmade climate change HAS to be “pseudo-scientific garbage.”

Yet humans can ionize the atmosphere to allow for better satellite communications; and create earthquakes with ionosphere heaters to keep dissident nations in line; and poke holes in the ozone layer (earth’s premier protective covering) with their endless chemtrails; and cause methane hydrates/clathrates to spew plumes into the atmosphere.

Yet humans are incapable of messing up the climate? Climate is made up of thousands of weather events – events which are easily created and manipulated. But there’s nothing to see here?

The notion of mankind’s capability of inflicting significant harm on the planet seems a fuzzy one. Strictly speaking “the planet” isn’t going to suffer much in the way of what we do. Whether the delicate eco-systems that we keep hearing about are going to be damaged is a matter that comes under the same category as those micro-medico essays we are subjected to. Well us punters in the street are too course and uncouth to figure such esoteric matters out.

But here’s how it looks to me:

Three years ago, covid was declared.

Covid was presented – and continues to be presented – as an undeniable fact. After all, doesn’t The Science say so?

And covid is deadly serious! Covid is a matter of life and death.

And covid is a pile of shite.

And just as more and more are coming to realise this …..

Climate change springs into the breach!

Climate change was presented – and continues to be presented – as an undeniable fact. After all, doesn’t The Science say so?

And climate change is deadly serious! Climate change is a matter of life and death.

I think I see a pattern here.

Of course, climate change has been, as it were, on the back burner for quite some time now. Al Gore presented a tantalising trailer in his lavishly funded and super hyped Inconvenient Truth. The attention granted to that suggests that it wasn’t too inconvenient after all!

But even that “back story” isn’t all that different from the covid franchise considering previous pandemic proteges.

Yes, definitely a pattern!

Before Simon Elmer wrote about the Covid World Order, he wrote about housing policy in England. In his research he realised that housing policy was not determined at the municipal level or even the national level. It was determined by international finance. He said that they have no interest in solving “the housing crisis.” They want the housing crisis to be perpetual as is better for real estate and development profits. This is a global phenomenon.

What Simon said is correct, it is a global phenomenon. There’s a highrise warehouse estate, much like in London, not far from Sydney city center. It was in “the news” lately. It’s a storage area for many dependent on social security payments, and disbility pensions. It’s to be ‘re-developed’; current residents will be scattered way out to the outer suburbs, which have fewer local amenities, very bad public transport. Out of sight, out of mind…
Post-pandemic, there’s a big drive to induce more migrants to Australia. Sydney hopes to cram another couple of million in…
Australia’s is heavily dependent on wave after wave of reasonably well-off migrants to keeps its consumer economy buoyant. It uses ‘urban renewal’ (aka re-development) to jettison those who cant consume the level required to be able to stay…

‘jettison from the inner suburbs targeted for ‘re-development’.’

OMG, I know that bus station so well… Seventy years ago it looked exactly like that, only with older buses…

One of the people making waves about these issues, doing the research and publishing it online, as well as highlighting the fact this is all linked to Communitarianism and Agenda 2030, is Mark Windows who does his own broadcasts called Windows On The World, plus he has a website. He is definitely worth listening to, he has a lot of great info to share so that people can be fully aware of what is going on here and find research leads.

Here is an interview he did recently with David Kurten of the Heritage Party (very promising guy as he is well versed in the Westminster machine, been in politics a while but seems to be truly talking sense and coming from a good place which is what we ultimately need here – someone genuine who people can get behind to build something which can have some presence and clout – at the moment we have ZERO presence or representation in Westminster) which is a good intro to David if you don’t know who he is and also to the ins and outs of this issue of the LTNs and the nefarious agenda driving it – Mark characterises this as globalism being implemented at the local level. This is how they’re rolling it out.

They also explain how it is easier to get elected to council positions of power than central government, and that at council level you can have enormous levels of influence.

Mark Windows & David Kurten. LTN’s and Councils. 40.20 into the video.. (bitchute.com)

Exactly. And when you have people elected at local level who’s parents attend standing one leg with a trouser leg rolled up and a brick on your head rituals you know the globalists plans will be put into place without a fight.

That’s easily explainable as a popular self negative influence (#) that becomes recognised on appointment of the Companies monitored Managing excessive Corporate security tools.
The individual (#) may or not be flexible to a more harmonious influence balance.
It’s a short example.of a company. Knowing it’s an Important part of a successful Corporate Global Corp.
