Betrayal of the people

As some of you may know, I came up with an idea for a group of motorcycle riders to help get PPE out to those in need. As of last week we have distributed 1.7 million pieces (oh and no we don’t count a pair of gloves as 2 pieces unlike HMG) and covered over a hundred and seventy thousand miles. All in 1 month. We now have 3,000+ members.
To achieve this we have an admin team, a team of coordinators who source those making the PPE and those in need. Transport coordinators then put up the size of packages, route and ask for riders. The riders then volunteer, paying their own fuel costs and giving their time freely. There is no cost for our service. We do not buy or sell. Everything is free at source. The manufacturers may be big firms or someone in their own home sewing or printing. Some crowd fund material costs but nobody profits.
We supply o the NHS, care homes and any and all front line workers or vulnerable people.
We are nationwide in mainland UK, happily covering every city town or even remote village or house.
We have watched the daily lies of government ministers aghast at the blatant untruths.
Every day they herald themselves, praising how they have ensured PPE has got out to all in need. The requests we receive however give a completely different story.
I personally have had front line nurses in Covid infected wards telling me in tears how they have no supplies of PPE or are having to share them. Nurses in care homes who have been assured there are no Covid infected residents, but then go on shift to find that was not true and even if there is PPE its locked away from the staff.
Stories of how NHS teams have lost members of staff and in turn staff have lost family members to COVID19 because PPE is not available.
We all have lost online friend but many of us have lost personal friends and sadly some family.
The needless loss of life is why I set up the riders group. I truly know the pain of losing a family member.

The reason for my anger is that throughout the month we have been running the group the government continue to do whatever they can to obstruct people manufacturing PPE.
Their latest method has scared many who manufacture to the point they have stopped producing it.
Their method is blatant bullying in the form of guidance. Now guidance is not law. It has not been subject to scrutiny or passed by Parliament. It’s advice, at best but in this case a steam of threats.
In the guidance they us words and phrases such as ‘may, can, should, could’ now if this guidance had legal framework, in other words was law the words used would be ‘must, will, and duty to’. It does not.
The guidance suggests that the producers of PPE could be sued for their efforts, where in reality any prosecution criminally or civilly would be nigh on impossible.
Before prosecition was even a possibility there would need to be proof of who produced the product. Now given there are no serial numbers that would in itself likely be impossible. Then the HSE would have to prove the equipment was sub standard and unfit for purpose, I would confirm that the equipment we have delivered appears to be beyond the quality expected by the BS or Kite Mark Scheme. Many of the manufacturers have either used government patterns or improved upon them.
So then proof of intent or of the disregard to safety would need to be shown.
Now we could ask why don’t the producers just apply for a kite mark, the simple answer is cost. These folk are mostly on low incomes producing at home on printers or sewing machines they have bought to do the job. Their bills go up due to electricity use, the materials cost has doubled and even tripled, such as in the case of simple elastic for masks. Many have already put themselves into deby to achieve the reduction of risk to so many.
People proudly talk of the blitz spirit, well this is it in action today, yet it seems our enemy is Her Majesty’s Government.
If we look at how many folk one piece of PPE can save, the person wearing it, the person they interact with,. Both people’s families and colleagues, it soon ads up. 1.7 million free items equatates possibly to reducing the risk to 17 million folk.
Now that is Blitz Spirit. Sadly the bombs we have to survive are on 2 fronts. One the virus and 2 our own government.
Thanks for reading.

We are a national group of riders distributing free PPE across mainland UK.
It’s non political. We are about helping those on the front line caring and keep us all safe, those in the NHS and all the folks in key roles.
We source those making it and get it to the folk who need it.
We pay our own fuel costs and our tech and admin team most of whom are dissbled have covered the cost of any software ourselves.
We don’t ask for money just time.
We use bikes, trikes, cars, vans, wagons and now now even have the use of a jet plane.
We started this venture from an idea I had, 10 days ago and now have 1.3 thousand members.
Feel free to join or let us know if you can either sew masks and scrubs or make face shields. All rides welcome.
Thanks
Jonesy

ALL LIVES MATTER

Sadly I am seeing so many denying the virus exists. Too many of these folk are people who are normally full of empathy for others.
It’s time for them to stop this dangerous view.

I get that we cannot trust this government.

I get that Boris and his cabinet of terror have consistently put profits before people.

I get that the government have used the pandemic to bring in draconian laws.

I get that HMG is the most corrupt and inept government in history.

I get that the figures are played down daily.

I get that the press lie to us constantly.

But…

This pandemic is world wide, not all governments play nice together. They definitely do not work together. There is no lizard race controlling us.

The illness is killing people daily, it is real, all to real. You, me, our families, our friend and our communities are at significant risk from it.

Yes Corona Virus is engineered in labs, but this strain is a mutation, I believe of an English patented design. It’s not designed as far as I can believe by China, America or Russia to kill people. That’s sadly an unprepared for side effect of the mutation.

The Corona Virus engineered in England was designed to prevent damage to chicken’s ovaries and thus prevent laying, in the event of them contracting avian flu. Why? To ensure the companies battery farming chickens did not lose profit.

Sadly in a capitalist world profit always comes before people.

When the disease mutated and crossed species it continued to mutate. Its how disease spreads. It jumped from chickens to mammals,  and sadly people are just mammals. Some animals are not effected but that’s because the difference between say a dogs immune and digestive system and ours is significant enough to currently mean they are less susceptible to this current strain. That’s kinda why we can’t breed with other species. We all have enough differences to ensure our species or theirs can adapt in just this situation.

Diversity of life.

Now I am no biologist, no doctor or bioengineer.i am a lay person as so many of you are. This is my opinion based on the information I have to hand, and my level of common sense.

If we deny the illness exists, we fail to self isolate and allow it to spread we risk our lives, our loved ones lives and our species. It’s that simple.

The herd immunity that Boris and his sycophants still seem to want to promote will kill more that it ever saves and to be honest risks the lives of every human in Britain. This disease or virus can be caught more than once.
The supposed anti biotic cures being touted don’t make sense either of we are to believe years of medical advice stating anti biotic medicine does not work on viral infection. But again I am no expert.

We do need to be fearful of measure being brought in that strip away our human rights.

We need to ensure that one life does not mean more than another, whether rich or poor, disabled or not, chronically ill or usually well.

ALL LIVES MATTER. ALL LIVES MATTER. ALL LIVES MATTER. ALL LIVES MATTER………….
Do you get the message?

We need to fight this virus, the way we do this is we continue to socially isolate. We ignore the deflated figures the government tout daily and realise through their inaction, profiteering and corruption we are now the worst hit country in all of Europe (and yes we are in Europe still, no one has managed to physically move the UK to another continent yet), with far far mor virus related deaths than anywhere except the USA with their Orange Boris senior.

We need the government to stop airline flights. We need to ensure that all citizens have the appropriate personal protective equipment, and those who have roles putting them more at risk have PPE appropriate to their level of contact with other people.

We need to ensure that people are not allowed to hoard and essential goods are available to all. We need to continue to socially isolate bur also to stop having a go at folks that have to go and care for others. We are not judge and jury.

This is not a public holiday so if folk are caught going away to their second homes, in their caravans or even tents then houses, motorhome tents or whatever should be confiscated along with all the contents. And by this I mean tourists not travellers who live in their vans and motorhome. Just to be clear.

The ban on travel to tourist destinations needs to be kept in place for as long as needed to keep society safe.

It’s all just common sense. So stop the crap that will kill folk, no parties, no nipping away, if you have to drive or ride out for your sanity don’t stop where there are other folk.

I know we all feel like prisoners, but we are not. We should be able to go on essential journeys and for some that is just escaping from the jail of their houses. This is especially true of those with depression, anxiety, PTSD and so many other mental health issues. Having a drive round the local area can release all of the despair, but if you do that do it alone or only with those you are isolating with, do not go to tourist spots, in fact just don’t stop, you don’t need to take a picnic because you don’t need to be out that long or that far from home.

See common sense. It’s really is that simple.
And please please stop denying the virus exists.

THE VIRUS IS VERY REAL AND IS KILLING FAR TOO MANY PEOPLE.

Ignore the publicity stunts by Boris and Co, it kills. Its that simple.

Oh and one last thing, ALL LIVES MATTER. ALL LIVES MATTER. ALL LIVES MATTER. ALL LIVES MATTER………….

Take care,
Jonesy

Dying because of it

To be honest I truly don’t care about Johnson or his cronies right now.

I care about the NHS staff working with poor or no PPE & DYING BECAUSE OF IT.

I care about no ventalators & our families DYING BECAUSE OF IT.

I care about not enough testing & carers DYING BECAUSE OF IT.

I care about a deliberately run down NHS & people DYING BECAUSE OF IT.

I care about the delays on isolation & folk DYING BECAUSE OF IT.

I care about 11 years of the lie that is Austerity & all that are still DYING BECAUSE OF IT.

I care about all of the people everywhere from doctors to dustbin men keeping us safe & DYING BECAUSE OF IT.

I care about all the cuts to support services and mental health & all the people including my young brother DYING BECAUSE OF IT.

So no I don’t want Boris Johnson or any of the Tory party to die. I want them accountable for their behaviour and crimes, I want them TRYING BECAUSE OF IT.
