Just for your info, me along with several thousand other folk have since early in this pandemic been trying to save the lives of front line staff, the disabled, nurses, doctors, teachers, children, chronically ill, carers, the elderly and all those people that matter to you.
We have not done this for profit, not even for cost or expenses, we have done it totally free because people have rallied to put others first.
So forgive me if I find your anti-mask, anti social distancing, conspiracy theories beyond mildly offensive.
I base my knowledge upon actions, upon talking to professionals, upon steering front line and hospital staff away from suicidal thoughts because of the pressure they are under.
Yes mistakes are made daily, usually by those putting profit before people. Yes the government have failed the people due to their corrupt and inept dealing. Yes the Conservatives have manipulated facts and used the pandemic as an excuse to strip our rights and asset strip our country, but Covid19 is real, it is on the rise and it is killing folk. All your not using common sense will achieve, is increasing the risks to yourselves, your families, your friends, your colleagues and your communities.
So yes question every decision the government makes, sift out the pathetic profiteering from their actions but use your brains.
Wear a mask, keep your distance, wash your hands and keep everyone safe.
And please don’t tell me masks don’t help, they are I admit not a HASMAT suit, but try spraying water through one, then the same amount of watrr without one. Given C19 is passed through droplets it’s kinda a nobrainer.
I fear I have lost the friendship and respect from a few people of late. I apologise if you are one.
My reality is that I have no idea of the truth behind Covid, but I know people are dying from it. I know those who survive often do so with long term illness or conditions as a result.
I also know that a simple mask is not the equivalent of a HASMAT or NBC suit, however I also know that anything over your mouth has a restrictive effect upon what comes out through breathing or a sneeze. It may not stop infections being released but it does reduce the distance and alter direction. Three layer masks can reduce it significantly.
I am also aware that now lockdown is to an extent locking the stable door. I know it has a huge adverse effect upon emotional, physical and mental wellbeing.
I know I believe a further lockdown will result in mortality rates rising through suicide.
I also know that curfew has no valid reason in fighting infection, and if anything actually heightens risk.
I do think there needs to be further restrictions but sensible ones. Seperating family and close friends will not help, but closing schools, universities and non essential workplaces will.
If you look at the regs for pubs currently they are ridiculous, you wear a mask until your seated but then you don’t have to, does C19 only infect those stood?
In warehouses I am told social distancing does not and cannot be adhered to, this is supported by the rates of infection in Amazon Warehouses. Google it.
Sadly we have an inherently inept, cruel, greedy and corrupt government, headed up by an incompetent arse.
This government cares nothing for you. If you are over 50 or have chronic health conditions their default setting is you will not be resuscitated if your body shuts down, whatever the cause.
If the Primate minister had reacted early on by lockdown, by isolating the UK from flights from infected areas, by a proper quarentine, by following the medical advice and not Cummings’ financial and fascist agenda we would be in a far better position now.
We do not matter to the Ape Johnson, or his cronies (parents included) because their investments, now they have stripped the UK are abroad, so their is little profit for them in the UK. They only remain because they are intent on wringing every last drop from us.
We are not cost effective as people hence the DNR placed on the ill, elderly and disabled.
Covid19 is not Flu. It is not benign, it is extremely malevolent and malignant. It does kill, it does maim, it will mutate, as it has already and continues to do so. The most dangerous period with any infection is winter.
So when I say I expect folk to wear masks I bloody well do. But I am not naive, I know the chump and his band of merry arseholes are using the pandemic to bring in their own agenda, I am aware their Bible seems to be Mein Kampf, that they are openly fascist and controlling, that they are using it to strip our rights.
So please understand I take the pandemic seriously, I have from the outset, I know it kills, but I also understand why people are confused, suspicious and angry. Because we all are.
I base my view on experience, on loss, on talking nurses and hospital staff down from suicidal thoughts due to the pressure they are under, from being there for my friends who are not coping, from still not being able to properly comfort my grieving parents or for them to comfort me.
On this vile journey the world is currently on I have lost close family to obstanacy, to anger, to emotion, I have fatally lost friends to accidents, chronic health issues and yes C19, I have at times lost not just me, but the ability to see a way forward, lost hope! But hope can return, as can normality, we just need to work together, use common sense and help others stay safe, even if we don’t care about ourselves.
We are, we the people, not the politicians, in this together. It will be us that live or die through our own actions, and the more we act rashly the more excuse we give them for stealing our rights and ultimately bringing in a martial regime.
We watch films like alien and think some space monster would be scary, but in reality sadly too many humans are far more cruel, wicked and terrifying than any demon could be.
We my friends as a species are the true horror stories that any alien world would make their horror movies about.
We allow cruelty to all earth’s inhabitants, including other humans, and even other family members.
We have no respect for anything on our planet, and belittle and criminalise those who do.
We pretend to worship kind deities yet truly only give our souls to greed and power.
We gladly allow the vulnerable of our planet, the forests, the oceans, the animals, and human disabled, weak, and poor to be killed off, to be left in disgraceful conditions, to be murdered in the name of fashion, profit and corruption.
This is what human ‘nature’ appears to be at this moment in history.
However there are some of these apex predators that give hope, those of us with compassion, morality, care, who want to love our planet, its inhabitants, even you.
Maybe you are one of these magical souls. I hope so.
Money is not a morality, power over others is not essential, violence is not an answer, the only way we as a species, get to save our world, to protect its residents, to keep our families safe, is to realise that we need a huge change. We need to take the power from the greedy, the corrupt, the violent, the war mongers, and set our planet on a new path, one of caring, love, understanding, ecology, forgiveness, a new fairer world, where people, animals, fauna, the seas, the atmosphere are put before profit.
Until we make this change earth is on a path to damnation, one worse than any biblical cataclysm.
We make these choices now, for our children and our world, or we do not make them at all. Any delay now will be too late.
Will you sentence all you care about to fall into the abyss? I won’t.
OK so now we basically have the threat of martial law without a declaration of martial law. This is not actually about Covid, not about social distancing or masks, its about civil disobedience toward an openly fascist profiteering government.
Boris is using Covid to strip us of our rights and even stated so today.
However what folk ain’t getting is Covid is real, it does kill and sadly your conspiracy theories and refusal to wear masks have fuelled the virus and given Boris and Co an open door to bring in policies, regulations and laws that will stop anyone being able to defend our rights or stop his vile actions, nevermind bringing in positive change.
Who do you think writes the conspiracy theories? Some polyester clad bloke with a cullender upon his head? Nope more often than not an oxbridge post grad in psychology and sociology being paid 60,000pa by Conservative party donors under the guise of a research fellowship for the private sector. Then their ideas are passed to people skilled in subliminal advertising and released upon social media, linked to discredited researchers.
It might not be rocket science but they are social scientists in the pay of the establishment.
You may think the figures you are being given about deaths are low, I would say they are, in fact too low to be genuine. I think likely more folk are dying than we are told, but who controls that data? Oh the government. Who releases it? Oh Conservative and establishment owned or controlled media.
We already know the last election was manipulated by these means, we know about tools such as subliminal advertising and reverse psychology, we know the Conservatives and their cronies have had the best education that money, extortion and bribery can buy. We know they have no morality or ethics and they only believe in profit and power.
I know I have spoken to folk working on the front line, in the fox holes that Covid wards have been, in craters that are our care homes, under strict orders not to resuscitate the vulnerable, disabled, elderly or chronically kill.
We know deaths have not been recorded or falsely recorded to deliberately confuse us, the people.
So instead of refusing to wear a mask find a real way to challenge this vile government, to not give them an excuse to bring in the army, and to not put our own people ar risk of infection and death.
We cannot accept the PM’s statement that he feels its morally and spiritually right to remove our rights and freedom.
We do need to fight, but on two fronts, one being the government but the second we need to fight the virus.
Remember it’s the establishments behaviour and inaction that has resulted in the Conservatives infecting Britain. Covid19 kills, but so Do the Conservatives20.
OK a bit of plain English on the R rate.
HMG are quoting figures at us on a regular basis. What do they mean?
The R number is currently anything between 1.1 and according to the New Scientist 1.7 in the UK.
So what you may say?
Well if the R rate is 1 it means an infected person is likely to infect 1 other person. If its 2 then two other people. If its.0.5, 2 people may infect another.
So not huge numbers yet. But….if the R rate is below 1 the disease or infection will die out at some point and the lower it is the quicker that will happen. It also gives scientists their greatest ally…time. That gives them a chance to study the disease, virus, infection, test, develop cure or inoculation and test again. Then people can have a true defence, and the virus will likely die out.
Vaccinations have killed viruses to the point of Extinction such as smallpox which was a true killer. They have also reduced the R rate with disease such as TB, measles, mumps, and even malaria.
Heard immunity worked to a degree for a while with chickenpox, however that seems to have mutated and people now can catch it more than once.
Polio is another extreme illness that was almost quashed by vaccine. When I was a child it was rife. Now it’s extremely rare in most western countries and has been lowered in most of the world, however its said whilst one child has polio all children are at risk.
So in the UK the R rate for SARSCOVID19 is above 1.this means it is likely every person infected will reinfect another person and possibly more. So even with sensible measures such as social distancing and masks that most of us observe, people are being infected and the disease infection rate the ‘reproductive’ R rate is growing.
Now fair enough you might not think this a huge issue but…..think of it this way:
On day one you have a grain of rice. On day 2 you have 2 grains of rice, day 3 you have 4, day 4 you have 8, day 5 you have 16, day 6 means 32, day 7 is 64, day 8 is now 128, day 9 becomes 256, day ten is 512, day 11 and you suddenly have 1024 pieces of rice, or cases of SARSCOVID19. You see how it grows. That’s base’s on an R rate of 2. Now even at 1.1 it grows at a scary rate, we in the UK are already on what New Scientist estimates as 1.7 although HMG puts it lower between 1.1 and 1.5 possibly in Scotland.
How many days since it started? Well for WHO to take notice the global R rate would probably have been above 1 for some time. So given in the UK its been above one again for a couple of weeks according to HMG we are already looking at big numbers. The thing is unless we take steps the R rate keeps rising. The Measles R rate in unvaccinated regions is 15. That’s why its so dangerous, along with the deaths and lasting damage.
In the UK people haven’t seen the effects so far that the movies nor our media outlets would have us believe, so people are feeling at best complacent but at worse arrogant or even defiant. Many believe we have been lied to, that things like nightingale hospitals were purely for scaremongering. Sadly I do not believe that. I believe even now people are being told to stay at home. I believe that most people are not being diagnosed with Covid19. If a doctor suspects you have it but you are not tested you will not be recorded as having it.
If you did sadly die at home it’s unlikely your death will be recorded as SARSCOVID19.
Many who do not survive have secondary illnesses such as chronic autoimmune diseases/syndromes. Often their causes of death may be recorded as those, and there will be no post mortem.
People now it seems over 45 may be automatically presumed to be DNR unless they themselves state legally that is not the case.
Children and adults with severe underlying illness may also be DNR some sources claim. I have personally seen and disclosed evidence of GP practices registering patients as DNR with no consultation with the patient.
The entire situation currently is a mess, we have a government clearly using the pandemic to bring in draconian laws to control the populace not only from COVID19 but also to give themselves authority to qwell any political unrest due to situations such as BREXIT. We have people using the constant misinformation to contrive all sorts of conspiracy theories about the virus, to the point of claiming it does not exist. Sadly I know too well that it does exist, that it kills, that it leave longlasting horrific issues to many and to many more it is weeks of feeling more ill and in pain than many have ever experienced.
Now having said all this I am no doctor or scientist. I have however been there giving support and an ear to nurses who have been suicidal for all they have seen on Covid wards, in care homes and in the community.
I have listened to too many folk who have lost family members to this virus. I have since April been the founding member of an organisation that has enabled the transport and distribution of millions of items of PPE throughout Britain and even to other countries complete free of charge. Despite the government stating it was not required.
Beyond all else I have been a son, brother, father and friend throughout this horrific time and lived with the same constant worries, even terror of losing someone I hold dear, and I can tell you I truly know how much that hurts.
This is my view on the current situation.
If you want to stop the government bringing in more controlling and restricting legislation or even soon possibly marshal law, you need to simply use common sense, recognise the risks and do everything you can to minimise those risks. We need the R rate below one ASAP and using a little brain power, a bit of empathy and morality is going to be the only way we achieve this and retain the image of being free we all hold at this current time.
That does not mean we continue in subservience, it does not mean an end to demonstrations nor an end to direct action if required, it means we pick our battles and act responsibly in regard to the virus, to change the future for the better.
Starting to hate aggressive people. Came home ill from my folks to receive a vile messenger message of a Southern Irish nazi telling me I am a fat slug that won’t survive the winter as the virus will sort me.
Is the virus he is talking about fascism by any chance? Hatred? Nazism? Gullability? Stupidity?
This because I took a stand? Asking for modern nazi merchandise to be removed?
Well sadly I am a stubborn old git, any virus is welcome to take me, I have lived my life far longer than any of the children in the concentration camps, the families of the Jews, Roma, Travelling families, blacks, lesbians, gays, disabled, twins, the prisoners of War held and tortured by the Gestapo or victims of SS atrocities.
I might not be brave, tough, a fighter, but I stand by my morals and threats or non posts like this crap I have been sent only make my stubborn streak more affirmed.
I will stand against hatred every day of the week and if that puts me in harms way from idiots then so be it.
How to galvanise me in one easy lesson. Send me bullshit or threaten me.
For those not aware, yesterday I had a run in with a guy selling nazi merchandise, this was not a piece of militaria, was not historic, it was a red banner with a white circle and swastika along with a picture of Hitler printed on the red with the dates he was in power.
The only reason for this to exist was for modern NAZI’s to celebrate Hitler, and to promote fascist beliefs.
I asked for it to be removed as the car boot is multicultural with people from all cultures including Jewish, Roma, Muslim, Christian…. The list goes on, there were also many disabled people their too, remember nazi eugenics? My request to the stall holder was refused, I was persistent and admit I ended up raising my voice to him as he defended the banner. A woman told me I was more offensive than Hitler and another stall holder threatened to take me down the field and beat me up.
None of the other customers at the sale defended my stance even though they stood around watching the scene. My friend however did
My best friend and carer was with me and she too felt threatened by the mob mentality.
The car boot organiser finally but reluctantly asked the stall holder to take the banner down then belittled me for challenging him. He also went on to say people could sell and display anything they wanted to. I explained that I had been threatened by another stall holder too and again was belittled by the organiser a man on his fifties who at this point reverted to a 15yr old school ground bully.
I had called the police as felt we were about to be assaulted but as usual they failed to attend.
My post about the events has gone viral and I have had many positive responses to my actions, however I also have had a very few negative ones, not I hasten to add by anyone that knows me.
I did not challenge this hate for fame, nor for any other motive than refusing to accept the rise of fascism in Britain and this modern world.
I have been anti fascist all my life and was active in the 1980’s with Anti-Nazi League and other anti hate groups.
I have worked all over the UK with all cultures, faiths, abilities and have always been anti discriminatory in my practice and my life.
I am not a terrorist though for some reason Antifa is seen as a terrorist organisation yet seemingly many fascist ones are not.
My dilemma is that now I have made a stand people want to stand with me, alongside me and want me to be interviewed, be public in regard to my actions. I am being warned against this by the people that care about me, as the Right Wing are often violent, aggressive and threatening. That by making my stand and continuing to stand against hate I am not just putting my self at risk, a risk I am willing to take, but also putting my family and friends in harms way.
As I said I am not scared for me, but after losing my young brother I cannot ever consider losing anyone else, especially through my actions and beliefs. My stubborness.
So do I carry on pushing to change our society at the very least, which I will always so in some way, or do I put my head down and live ashamed of what I might have done.
Yes backing down may also help my clinical anxiety which currently is extreme due to yesterday, but not my depression nor my self respect.
So what the hell do I do. I did not plan to challenge this, but there was no reality where I could have just walked by.
I have always been proud of my grandparents, living through and fighting in the second world War. Whatever the government reasons for war were, the British people fought and died alongside of all the other allied nations to rid the world of the blind hate fascism brings and pushes upon us.
If I don’t now make my stand how on earth can I hold my head up to their memory or that of Rob my brother, who for all his faults shared my belief in fighting hate.
This happened today near Chesterfield in Derbyshire.
When I challenged the bloke running this stall at Twin Oaks Carboot sale, who was also selling knives and other crap I was threatened by another stall holder, and shouted at by a horrible woman saying it was me that’s offensive not Hitler.
Junction 29 of the M1. Twin Oaks Hotel Carboot.
At the other end of carboot a white stall holder complaining about ‘bloody w#*s’ after a black person had tried to enquire about something on his stall.
The organiser of the carboot saying he got them to take it down for me, that it wasn’t offensive and really they can display anything they want. It’s also acceptable for stall holders to threaten customers. When I said I was reporting the stall holder too for his threats, the organiser took the piss out of me stating I would be keeping the police busy.
I was with my best friend, and she felt threatened and scared and then terrified by the response of the public to my asking him to remove the swastika.
Police 999 operator said it was an immediate but then 10 mins later got an officer ringing me who belittled me. I ended up telling them they were useless and hung up the phone.
I never realised how absolutely immoral our society had become. Where racism is the acceptable norm and anti racist views are seen as offensive.
I hate fascist Britain so much. I do not want to live in this vile society any longer.
We are all proud of our grandparents and great grandparents for living through and fighting a war against fascism, yet now it seems as a nation we embrace Nazi ideals.
Not good enough.
This was not memorabilia from the war, this had Hitler’s date of death on it. It was post war nazi regalia. Not collectable or militaria, purely to promote nazi ideals. It was modern fascist merchandise of Hitler and nazism.
