Retired Supreme Court Justice: Lockdown “Thoroughly Inhumane” – You Don’t Say!

Comment: 

As this thread is launched, Boris Johnson is holding a press conference to offer his exit strategy for coming out of lockdown.  From the snippets appearing online already, this is going to be a very slow process. Politicians do not give up power easily. Nicola Sturgeon is to make her latest announcement tomorrow afternoon but she’s already told us that her focus will be on “data rather than dates” which, of course, means that she can keep moving the goalposts at will.  

Will telling these people that lockdown is inhumane move them, at all?  Will it touch them sufficiently to decide to end this misery once and for all?

I think not. What about you?  

Authoritarian UK Governments Are Recruiting Child-Spies: Criminal Surely? 

Comment:

I mean, just how much further down the road to outright tyranny must we go before the majority of people inside and outside Parliament waken up to the truth about “the virus”?  Maybe if someone leaves a trail of beans from Westminster (and the other centres of Government in Edinburgh, Cardiff and Belfast) all the way to China, then the penny will drop. 

There’s just no explaining the blindness around us – except in supernatural terms.  We are living through the prophesied – at Fatimadiabolical disorientation, when everything in the world and the Church is upside down; the old order is being crushed and a “new normal” established, where our freedoms have been permanently removed. 

God will intervene in due course – once we have been sufficiently chastened and turned back to Him.  In the meantime, we need to pray, to live the Fatima Message as it applies to us, and keep watch, so that we are alert to the reality of the evil engulfing us. Let’s also do our best to alert others to what amounts to criminal behaviour by the UK Governments.

If you disagree that the recruitment of children to spy on their parents is criminal, tell us so and explain… how would you describe it?  How can it be justified?  

Covid-Christmas: Politicians Panic As Media Puts Pressure To Tighten Rules… 

Comment: 

It’s truly terrifying to watch the the way the (entirely contrived) fear of “the virus” is continuing to be peddled by media hacks and career politicians like Keir Starmer, as evidenced in the above news clip. None of these people have lost a day’s pay, remember, while many small business owners and employees are struggling and may lose their livelihoods.  Remember, Kay Burley, and several other Sky News employees were caught breaking the Covid rules but lest you imagine that they were slapped with the same huge fines that the rest of us land in similar circumstances, think again; they’ve been suspended for a few months on – wait for this – full pay. That is, they’ve been sent off on holiday.  Laugh? I thought I’d never start.

I’m certainly not laughing at the threat to remove the “Christmas carrot”…  Having dangled the carrot of a few days of relative freedom over Christmas, there is every chance now that this will not happen, or, at least, that the restrictions will be tightened to make a show of being “responsible”  – when, in fact, both the political class and the media are wholly irresponsible, lying to us about this horrible, but certainly not deadly, virus.  “Surges”?  “Spikes” – I’m still waiting, almost one year on, to meet anyone who has been diagnosed with this virus, and I’m still waiting, almost one year on, to meet anyone else who has met someone diagnosed with it.  So, gimme a break. We’re not ALL stupid.  Last time I checked, the figures showed that of those who DO get his blankety blank virus, the majority – 99.97% – recover. That’s the only number that counts… The top cause of death in the UK is heart disease – are we all to be fitted with pacemakers?  Gerragrip.  This wasn’t a pandemic last March and it’s not a pandemic now.  

Yet, people are saying things like “I wonder what we’ll be allowed to do” [over Christmas];  that is worrying.  It demonstrates how quickly and easily the population has slipped into totalitarianism, accepting that the Government has the right to tell us what to do in our personal and religious lives.  Should we check with our MP or MSP to make sure it’s OK to go to church at Christmas?  Leave out a snack for Santa?   Yeah right.  As Sir Desmond Swayne MP said on the floor of the House of Commons a couple of weeks ago: this is a very dangerous lesson to give the Government; that they only have to snap their fingers and we will give up our freedoms with nothing more than a shrug of the shoulders. 

For pity’s sake, fellow Scots, English, Welsh and Irish, find some backbone and fight back against this tyranny. 

I will spend Christmas as I choose.  What about you?  

Boris Johnson: Devolution & Scottish Parliament “A Disaster” – You Bet! 

Boris Johnson has denied that he opposes devolution as he attempted to end a major row in Scotland caused after he branded the creation of the Scottish Parliament a “disaster”. 

In an address to the Scottish Conservatives virtual conference, the Prime Minister claimed his leaked comments, made in an online call to northern English Tory MPs, had not been reported “entirely accurately” and suggested he had been referring to the SNP’s “abysmal” performance in government.

Mr Johnson was reported as telling MPs that devolution had been “a disaster north of the border” and was Tony Blair’s “biggest mistake”.  His comments dismayed Scottish Tories, with the Holyrood elections just six months away and the SNP already on course to claim a majority and a new mandate for a second independence referendum.

In recorded remarks to the conference, Mr Johnson said: “I know comments I made the other day on devolution have been widely reported, leaked, not entirely accurately, but never mind.  “But since no press were in the room, I’ll give you my unvarnished view: the way the SNP have handled devolution in Scotland has been a disaster – from plummeting education standards, low business confidence and the lowest satisfaction ever in public services – their record is abysmal. “The key is to have policies to show how devolution can work for Scotland, the people in Scotland, rather than the SNP obsession with making devolution work against the rest of the UK.”  (Taken from The Telegraph platform on YouTube)

Comment:

If anyone can specify the benefits to Scotland of Devolution, in everyday life, and the Scottish Parliament as a practical and effective tool of governance, I, for one, would be interested to learn and, if necessary, revise my opinion. At the moment, I tend to agree with Boris, although, frankly, it pains me to agree with him about anything.  What about you?   

Covid-19: Day of Reckoning Ahead & Green Agenda – UK Looking Ridiculous?

Comment: 

Once again, talkRadio covers the issues that are being totally ignored by the mainstream media, which is keen to push the panic Covid-19 lie, as well as the ridiculous “green” agenda,  designed to keep us all strictly under Government control and to make us all poorer.  If you disagree, feel free to say so…

Also, is the new Reform UK Party likely to win the “anti-lockdown” battle – or should Richard Tice stick with the Brexit Battle?  

England: Lawyer – Democracy Lost… 

Comment:

It is refreshing to hear a Barrister speaking openly about the reality of what is going on in the UK today, that our freedoms have been taken away, that we are no longer functioning as a democracy.  Francis Hoar is acting on behalf of the Keep Britain Free group – click here to read their statement on Judicial Lockdown Review and their Victories To Date

Here’s one commentator’s opinion, published underneath the video on YouTube…

People should not be afraid of their Governments, Governments should be afraid of their people.

Easier said than done.  At one point in the conversation, Anna Brees asks about disobedience. Understandably, the lawyer offers no opinion. Wouldn’t look too good if the legal establishment went about exhorting us all to break the law, I suppose…  However,  I find that I am more and more and more determined to disobey, with every new restriction announced. Those with jobs to think about, thought, may not enjoy the luxury of blatantly refusing to obey. 

 Does this mean, then, that we have no option but to keep doing what we’re told – indefinitely?   

England: Three-Tier System Introduced… But Is It POSSIBLE To Conquer A Virus? 

Comment: 

Are you impressed with the way Keir Starmer, Labour Leader and Leader of the Opposition is “scrutinising” the Westminster Government’s handling of the Coronavirus “crisis”?  It seems to me that any parliamentarian who still thinks there is a “crisis” cannot possibly properly and fully scrutinise the Government and its medical and scientific “experts”.  But you may disagree.  If so, let’s hear it. 

First, though, I need to make one thing clear;  I sometimes receive emails from those who have been affected by Covid-19, either directly or indirectly (through family and friends) and our comments here are sometimes interpreted as dismissive of the gravity of the virus.  I have replied with a reassurance that we do not deny that this is a real virus and a particularly nasty virus.  Our concern is simply this: that the scientific experts having emphasised that most who become infected recover,  it cannot be right, surely, for any Government (let alone the Governments of the entire world) to close down the economy and lock us into our homes. Then, when lockdown ends, to make us live under various restrictions – in short, removing our personal and religious freedoms, on the assumption that in this way a virus – any virus – can be eradicated.  If that is the case, why was this strategy not used years and years ago to conquer other viruses, notably the annual flu? 

With that thought in mind, let us read your opinion about these latest restrictions in England – the “three tier” approach.  We are told that Nicola Sturgeon is considering a similar system for Scotland although whether ours will be three or multiple tiers, remains to be seen, according to BBC Reporting Scotland earlier this evening.  We’ll find out several weeks from now – a clue that, as I think we all know, this new form of Government control is not going to end… It’s here to stay (as the politicians themselves have admitted more than once) “indefinitely”.  

Are we all just going to roll over and accept this continuing totalitarianism?  

Tyranny Tightens – Draconian Measures: Living In The UK “Like Being In Prison”…

England was plunged back into coronavirus pain today as Boris Johnson confirmed a long list of new lockdown rules – and warned they’ll go on for “perhaps six months”.

All citizens are being told to work from home if they can with immediate effect – and from Thursday, all pubs, restaurants and even kebab shops and takeaways must shut from 10pm.

Masks will become compulsory for shop and pub staff from Monday and taxi passengers from Thursday – while the fine for failing to wear one, or breaking the ‘rule of six’ on gatherings, will double to £200 for a first offence.

Only 15 people will be allowed to attend weddings from Monday and five-a-side football will be axed.

The PM declared Britain has reached “we have reached a perilous turning point” after the number of positive tests quadrupled in a month.

He warned there will be “greater firepower” and “significantly greater restrictions” if the measures don’t work. He dismissed Tory calls to let people judge their own risk, saying: “Your harmless cough can be someone else’s death knell.”

But he stopped short of banning people from different households meeting up – as is the case for 13.7million people under local lockdowns – after a Cabinet row.

And despite the wave of restrictions he rebuffed Labour and SNP calls to extend the furlough scheme – which ends on October 31 putting millions at risk of redundancy.

He also told the 2.2million vulnerable people who shielded earlier this year that they still don’t need to shield – except in specific local lockdown areas.

The PM warned the Army could be deployed to help boost numbers, saying: “We will provide the police and local authorities with the extra funding they need, a greater police presence on our streets and the option to draw on military support where required to free up the police.”

However, it’s understood troops would backfill for police rather than enforce the rules themselves.

And then the not even remotely thinly disguised threat…

He said: “If we fail to act together now, we will not only place others at risk, but jeopardise our own futures with the more drastic action we would inevitably be forced to take.”

He went on: “We will spare no efforts in developing vaccines, treatments, new forms of mass testing.

“But unless we palpably make progress, we should assume the restrictions I have announced will remain in place for perhaps six months.”

Comment: 

Nicola Sturgeon is set to announce new rules for Scotland later this afternoon, which are likely to follow the above measures being introduced in England.  Her statement will be published in the comments below.    

We’ve discussed the changed nature of governance in the UK many times on this blog; the introduction of “rule by decree” – a feature of dictatorships – is now routine here.  Clearly, tyrannical rule is tightening its grip. “The New Normal” –  which, as we know, is a euphemism for Communism – has, to all intents and purposes,  arrived in the UK. We have lost our freedom. 

The need for the Pope to obey the Fatima request to consecrate Russia,  cannot be over-emphasised.  Let’s all pray to that end. 

Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us! 

Sinister, Rogue UK Government(s) Rule By Diktat – MPs MUST Speak Out…

Comment: 

The following letter was written by a couple in England and is offered here as an encouragement to others to write to MPs right across the UK – we really do need to make our voices heard as the governments of the UK continue to rule by decree or diktat – the form of governance normally associated with Communist-style tyrannical regimes.  As we have seen on this blog via a number of video clips, the UK is quickly becoming a police state, with officers acting as agents of the State, by enforcing measures (supposedly temporary) which are based on political ideology, masquerading as science.  So, read the letter below and share your thoughts:  are we being led, now by sinister forces?  Are we no longer sleep-walking, but now marching into a permanent form of tyrannical government, where no dissent is permitted and will, in fact, lead to hefty fines or imprisonment?  Our personal freedom is being trampled underfoot, right across the UK where each of the four devolved administrations is ruling by diktat.  Writing to our local MPs is important – they need to know that we are extremely angry about the loss of our liberty.  The couple below have made their feelings very clear – hopefully, after reading the text of their letter, you will be motivated to write to your own MP, as a matter of urgency. 

Letter to an MP in England…

Dear…. MP…

Re: Coronavirus Regulations

Boris Johnson said today:

“The world we want to move to is one where everyone can take an enabling test at the start of every day.”

Is that the world you want your children to live in? Since my letter of 23 May 2020, we continue to live, as we have since in the passage of the Coronavirus Act 2020, subject to the absolute diktat of our incompetent health secretary, Matthew Hancock, with no scrutiny from parliament, no transparency on government advice and decision-making, and no accountability. This is strange, as serious cases of Covid-19 have reduced to statistically negligible levels, notwithstanding continued government lies about a “second wave”, as shown by these chart [sic]

This is against a backdrop of significantly increased testing (see below), which is known to yield a high percentage of false positive results.

It is incredible that more MPs are not speaking out against this abuse of power, or the fact that the stated reasons for these restrictions on liberty have been repeatedly superseded by further specious reasons. You are paid to represent the interests of your constituents, whose remaining liberties are now the plaything of a rogue government. Please let me know what you intend to do to hold the government to account for its reckless and sinister actions. In particular, I trust you will be able to confirm you intend to vote against extending the current intolerable despotism for a further two years when the act comes up for a parliamentary vote at the end of September. If not, please can you explain why you believe should continue to draw your salary?

The government has just announced that it will be restricting gatherings to 6 persons as of Monday. It has done no impact assessment for this. This is in addition to numerous other harmful measures introduced on a similar basis, including:

1. Mandatory face coverings on public transport.

2. Mandatory face coverings in shops.

3. A £10,000 fine for organising an “illegal gathering” (which since the case of Piers Corbyn we now know will now include any  political  protest to challenge the government’s action, but not protests organised by terrorist groups such as BLM and Extinction Rebellion).

None of these measures is remotely justified, given the fact that the risk now posed to the general public by Covid-19 is in line with background risks encountered every day. What is particularly monstrous is the reinforcement and redoubling of such restrictions against a backdrop of diminishing risk. I can see no reason for this other than the government’s desire to promote public fear to perpetuate its autocratic and unaccountable rule – whether because it is hoping its incompetence is not found out, or for more sinister reasons.

The government now proposes to roll out vaccines to vulnerable people that have not been properly subject to full clinical trials and concerning which no evidence exists on long-term side effects. It is certain that, given the public appetite for such a vaccine, this action will result directly in many deaths and many more life-changing side effects; and more again, if the vaccine is mandated. The fact that the government is aware of this risk is evident in the consultation document issued in respect of these proposed measures (see here: https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/distributing-vaccines-and- s-and-treatments-for-covid-19-and-flu).
Ed:  this link leads to an Error Page. I think the author of the letter may have meant to link to this page

The government still refuses to rule out vaccine mandation – a crime against human dignity worthy of Josef Mengele –  and in addition there are plans to introduce a digital ID card (see the article in the Times available here: https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/digital-id-cards-lead-the-dominic-cummings-data-revolution-v750fn3kt), likely containing immunisation status information. I repeat what I wrote in my last letter; if such a card is introduced I will consider myself under an obligation to disregard such a wicked law. A UK parliamentary petition opposing any enforcement of vaccination has exceeded 100,000 subscriptions (see here: https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/323442).

Such invasive and far-reaching measures could only be contemplated (if at all) for the most severe reasons, and in light of a thorough and transparent risk assessment and cost-benefit analysis. I pointed out the deplorable lack of any such analysis in my earlier correspondence. Mr Hancock incredibly dismissed the need for any such analysis in a press conference on 15 June 2020. The fact that the government still refuses to offer transparency on its decision-making is sinister beyond description.

The lack of vigour or urgency with which the official opposition has conducted itself in this matter is frankly disgraceful. I look forward to hearing what you plan to do to restore our liberties, the rule of law, and hold the government to account. If you plan to do nothing, I look forward to hearing your evidence-based reasons for doing nothing.

Yours sincerely,   Ends – all emphases added…
