Letter to the Chief Constable, Police Scotland…This is not Communist China! 

The following letter, dated 6 July, 2020, was sent to the  Chief Constable, Police Scotland, authored by blogger, Athanasius, who has kindly given permission for it to be published here, for discussion…

Dear Chief Constable,

I understand that as of July 10 the wearing of face masks in shops is to become mandatory by government order, and that Police Scotland is set to back this imposition on civil liberties by means of fines.

Before getting to the point, allow me to appraise you of the truth concerning Covid-19. The best place to begin is with a declaration made by England’s Chief Medical Officer, Sir Chris Whitty, to the media gathered at Downing Street on May 11: “I wish to reiterate that for most people Covid-19 is harmless”.

This declaration coincides perfectly with official Scottish statistics showing that around 2500 Scots from a population of 5.5 million have died subsequent to having tested positive for Covid-19. That relatively small number, of which 50% were deaths in locked down care homes, equates to a mere 0.04% of the population.

Furthermore, since this virus has never been correctly isolated and identified using established scientific method (Koch’s Postulates), British test procedures and results based on flawed Chinese research are clearly untrustworthy. There is a case presently before the English courts in regard to this false science and the subsequent totalitarian legislation resulting from it.

Having spent many hundreds of hours studying the Covid-19 phenomenon, I am now fully convinced  that this Chinese virus has been politicised for the purpose of imposing a new (Communist) totalitarian rule on the free world, the “new normal” as they like to call it.

That the present crisis is manufactured is without question given the aforementioned official statistics and declarations, not to mention that for the first time in decades 40% of acute NHS beds in the UK are empty. It is also evident in such sleight of hand as Post Mortem examinations being largely suspended for the duration along with second-doctor confirmation of cause of death in the interests of conflating numbers.

Further proof of the fraud is in the fact that the World Health Organisation (WHO) is being cited in support of the new rules when that organisation is clearly in China’s pocket, which is why the U.S. has withdrawn funding from it.

You will doubtless be aware that the WHO initially silenced the Covid-19 outbreak at China’s behest and then lied to the world when declaring that it was not a transmittable virus. Months later it announced that face masks were useless, now it says they should be made mandatory. On the basis of such flip-flopping misinformation it is evident that the WHO is not a reliable source upon which governments should legislate.

Now to the point. A few weeks ago you and Nicola Sturgeon gave the nod to a gathering of thousands of anarchists on Glasgow Green. Only a small minority of those present wore face masks and none observed the social distancing rules. By permitting this you set a precedent that can be cited in court as evidence that the new mandate set to come into force on July 10 is contradictory and discriminatory.

It tells us a lot about the ideology of our leaders when citizens are locked in their homes, churches are shut down, dog walkers are spied upon and reported by neighbours etc., while Marxist anarchists in their thousands are accorded free reign!

This is what happens when law enforcement loses its direction and sense of justice becoming instead a politicised “strong arm” of government, in this case the culturally Marxist Scottish Nationalist government which is using Police Scotland to enforce its Constitutionally unprecedented and unlawful suppression of civil liberties.

Enough is enough! This is free democratic Scotland, not Communist China, North Korea or the former Soviet Union. You will not be permitted to impose a Police State in this country under any pretext!  

From what I hear in the general population people are sick and tired of this government and its manipulation of the police to bring about its Marxist ends. It has gone on for years in the form of thought policing and now it has been expanded to full blown totalitarianism dictatorship.

When seven police constables respond to a bus driver’s report that a passenger is refusing to wear a face mask, as recently happened to an acquaintance of mine in Paisley, then it is perfectly legitimate for the public to question this new direction of the police, a direction that disgraces the uniform and the noble history of the force in fighting real crime.

For four months now I have been unable to go to work, attend church, go on holiday, have my hair cut or do any of those other things I am entitled to do as a free man of this land. Indeed I don’t even know if I’ll have a job at the end of this, if it ever does end, such is the evil visited upon our nation by this culturally Marxist government with your assistance, destroying our economy and civil liberties with impunity.

I was six years old when the Asian Flu visited the UK in 1968, killing 85,000 people. My entire family was bed ridden and I was the only one untouched by the virus. There was no Nanny State in those days so I was forced to do the shopping, make light meals and feed the baby. Not a single business closed during that pandemic and not a single resident was placed under house arrest. Why? because historically society isolates the sick, not the healthy. You see the present insanity, the counter-cultural subversion?

Since barely half the numbers of the 1968 event have died on this occasion, despite the fiddling of figures, you may rest assured that I will not be wearing a face mask for Nicola Sturgeon, for you or for any other self-appointed dictator. Our troops did not surrender their lives in two world wars to protect freedom and democracy in our nation only for subversives in high places to take it away by stealth.

Covid-19 is hardly the plague upon us, but let me tell you that I would rather face a plague with freedom than live subjugated as an automaton under people like you and Nicola Sturgeon.

I should inform you that I intend to send this letter to the media for publication in the hope of exposing what is really occurring in our society right now. In the meantime, Please find enclosed a proper scientific document exposing the falsehood of face masks.

Sincerely

Signed…

Comment: 

On this day, when the Scottish Government, supported by Police Scotland, seeks to enforce the wearing of face masks / face coverings on the population, we have to wonder if Athanasius is correct.  ARE we heading into a full blown police state?   I spoke to a gentleman yesterday who is a total believer in the lockdown;  when I tried to offer some facts, his hand flew up and he announced that he didn’t want to hear “my theories”.   Then earlier today, a reader spoke to a lady during her shopping trip explaining that this is a very worrying time, with Communist China on the rise… To her astonishment, the woman replied that she had often thought we needed a “wee bit of Communism” in order to make us  appreciate our democratic way of life.  Our fellow-reader did not have the heart to tell  her that there’s no such thing as “a wee bit of Communism”.  You can have a wee bit of chocolate, or a wee bit of a break from blogging, but Communism comes as a package – with totalitarian government and … well…  you know…

I’ve already congratulated Athanasius on his excellent  letter.  I’m sure you will want to say a few words of thanks, too, for his untiring efforts to do everything possible to alert the authorities to the terrible road down which Scotland (and the wider UK) is heading – unlike the clergy, from the Pope down, whether modernist diocesan clergy or traditional (so-called) priests, all of whom have remained silently complicit throughout this removal of our civil and religious liberties.  Where are their voices now,  in all of this, as the imposition of face-coverings takes this authoritarian governance to a new level?  Where, more to the point, are their consciences? 

Share your own thoughts, too, on where this is all going:  are face-masks/coverings here to stay?   I know two people who’ve been shopping today and refused to comply.  I’ll be refusing to comply when I next head for the shops.  Is that the right thing to do?  Is it “spoiling for a fight” (asking for a fine? 😀 )  I don’t think so – I’m not going to pay any fine, and I suspect others who are non-compliant will be non-compliant all the way, as well.   Over to you – share your thoughts…   

English Dissident on “Scotland’s Tinpot Despot”: Face Masks = Muzzles…

Peter Hitchens, Journalist

When this madness began, I behaved as if a new and fanatical religion was spreading among us. Be polite and tolerant, I thought. It may be crazy and damaging but in time it will go away.

Now it is clear that a new faith, based on fear of the invisible and quite immune to reason, has all but taken over the country. And it turns out to be one of those faiths that doesn’t have much tolerance for those who don’t share it.

My guess is that about 85 per cent of the population now worship it and will continue to do so. The rest of us are, as each day goes by, a persecuted minority, forced to go along with beliefs we do not hold.

Its evangelists will not leave you and me alone, but constantly seek to force us to join. This is why I make such a fuss about the demand to make us all wear muzzles. This is not about health. 

There is simply not enough evidence to compel us to do so. It is an attempt to force submission on Covid unbelievers.

That is why it spreads, despite the absence of any good case for it. In a creepy development, one of the most powerful scientific papers arguing against it, Why Face Masks Don’t Work: A Revealing Review, last week suddenly vanished from its usual place on the internet – I still have a copy and you may read it here

Scotland’s tinpot despot, Nicola Sturgeon, now demands that muzzles are worn in shops, as well as on public transport, north of the border…

This obsession with telling us how to look, and turning us from normal humans into submissive, mouthless flock animals all decked out in a compulsory uniform is, in my view, part of an unprecedented assault on our personal liberty in general. Stay at home. Stop working. Don’t see your friends or relatives. Submit, submit, submit. Get used to being told what to do.

And we do it…

 I think something has gone wrong deep inside the workings of this country. A fire long smouldering below decks has now burst into the open.

Let me share a letter I received from a reader: ‘I run a small coffee shop and when the state decreed, I reopened for takeaway (I was ‘allowed’ also by the local council to use a small area outside my premises for people to sit down and drink their takeaways). Occasionally, when the weather has been bad or someone with an infirmity hasn’t been able to take their drink away, I have let them sit inside.

‘This morning I was visited by the police and warned. I was informed that two complaints had been made against me for serving drinks inside the premises. All for making someone a cup of tea and being human enough to let them have it inside. Last year my business was burgled and trashed and drug dealing was going on in the park that my business overlooks. And what happened then? Absolutely nothing. This isn’t the kind of country that my grandfather fought to preserve.’    End of letter/extracts from Peter Hitchens’ Daily Mail article…

Comment: 

I’ve been hearing from more and more people who say they will just not wear masks in shops when Friday 10 July comes around.  I intend to fight it with all my might. I’ll carry a marker pen in case I’m forced to do so, and then I’ll write a message on the material for all to read.  I’m still working on the text, so all non-crude and all non-threatening-of-violence suggestions welcome.  Some of us, then, are trying to fight back. 

Yet, when I visited a B & Q store yesterday, I lost count of the number of people, mostly males but also parents and children who were wearing face masks.  Moreover, when my passenger returned with her purchases – two huge bags of compost and a tree, would you believe,  I asked her in amazement why she didn’t ask one of the men in the store to help her out with the trolley – I’ve always found them helpful and I was  only buying the equivalent of a few paper-clips… Reply:  they’re no longer allowed to do that.  The lad who helped place her tree onto the trolley was looking surreptitiously around, because, he said, he wasn’t even supposed to be doing that.  

What’s happening to people?  What’s happening to Scotland? The “social distancing” and the snitching has made us a fearful people, very anti-social, in fact.  And most people, it seems, are prepared to live with this “new normal” (the loss of our civil and religious freedoms, permanently if that’s what the Government decrees).  The question for this discussion, therefore, has to be… are  you?

**********************************************************************************

As a matter of interest…

Peter Hitchens is counter-cultural on other topics, not just “the lockdown”…  If only more public figures/journalists were able to think outside of the mainstream “box”…  Maybe, then, we wouldn’t have to kill babies OR wear face masks…

Wuhan Virus: Is it immoral to force people to wear masks when they are not safe?

Comment: 

Scots are to be forced to wear face masks/coverings when going into shops as from Friday 10 July (it’s already mandatory to wear them on public transport).  Those who fail to comply, will be liable to a £60 fine.

Me, I’d prefer to have my freedom, thank you very much.  I’ve yet to hear any expert claim that wearing a face mask will protect me from becoming infected. Indeed, it may, on the contrary, cause me to become sick.  This because what I am breathing out is trapped in the mask, and will re-enter my body.  No place else to go.  

Consistently, over weeks and weeks, we were told (by none other than the World Health Organisation) that wearing masks was pointless for the mass of the population. Now we’re being fined if we don’t wear one on public transport or in shops.  How long before we are forced to wear them all the time – after all, it’s a very simple, easy and visual way for a Government to gauge the obedience, the compliance of its population with the very new normal. 

I’m sick, all right.  Not due to any virus but sick of watching a fearful, almost feverish population who don’t know the facts about any of this, from the truth about the infection and death rates, to the uselessness of wearing face masks.  Sick of watching the unthinking compliance. 

This pointless fear has affected every part of our lives – our daily travel, shopping, already a chore due to lengthy queues, signposting, (anti)-social distancing and now face masks.   Shockingly this same irrational fear has struck the clergy from the top down, so that we are denied the Sacraments, and God is denied the public worship due to Him.  This cowardly behaviour on the part of priests and bishops will not be easily forgotten by the scandalised laity. 

It’s painfully obvious that this is not going to end. The “easing” of restrictions means, in effect, nothing more than a change of restrictions.  Face masks are simply the latest totalitarian measure to control us. Talk of a “second wave” is already all the rage.  The erratic World Health Organisation – in a panic because the economy of the USA shows amazing signs of recovery already – is bleating on with its “warning” of a second wave which means, of course, more lockdowns.

Either we sleep-walk – or, more accurately, continue to march – into permanent authoritarian governance, or we refuse to go along with this charade. Are we really to be criminalized for refusing to wear a face mask?  When it really makes no difference in the matter of safety from the Wuhan virus, and can, on the contrary, cause us to become ill? Isn’t it immoral –  sinful – to risk abusing our bodies in this way?   

Scottish Government does not truly believe virus claims – response to Sturgeon letter 

Those of us living in Scotland are receiving a letter from Nicola Sturgeon this week (I hope they publish the financial costs involved in sending out all the propaganda we’ve been sent about this virus).  There is  no copy of this latest letter on the Government website that I can find, although the following notice is posted: 

Households will be sent information explaining how the Test and Protect system works and setting out what to do if someone develops coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms.

NHS Test and Protect is being delivered by NHS Scotland to reduce the risk of the virus spreading. People with symptoms are urged to get tested straight away, with positive cases then referred to contact tracers.

The advice is being issued as the country moves into phase 2 of the Scottish Government’s exit strategy routemap with more restrictions being lifted and the new message to ‘Stay safe. Protect others. Save lives’. End of extract.

Martin Blackshaw (aka Athanasius) has been busy on his keyboard, again challenging the powers-that-be on the matter of the ongoing lockdown – this time writing to Nicola Sturgeon.  I plan to do the same myself, a little later and I urge everyone reading this who receives her letter, to do the same.  It’s outrageous that we are being patronised in this  way – clearly she, like the other politicians promoting this lockdown, works on the assumption that we’re all daft and don’t have any other source(s) of information.  I’d like to prove her wrong. 

Martin’s letter is incomplete at the time of this writing, but he has kindly granted permission to publish it anyway.  Perhaps this reminder of some key facts, together with some new information, will encourage us all to let Nicola Sturgeon know that we’re not fools, we don’t believe the propaganda.  

Martin writes…

I completed my letter to Nicola Sturgeon and sent it off today, copied to Jackson Carlaw and Richard Leonard on the opposition benches.

Here it is:

Dear First Minister,

A few days ago I received your general letter to the Scottish people in which you thank us for our “admirable” help in tackling the Covid-19 crisis. It is a letter that I believe will be historically recorded as one of the most condescending and untruthful letters ever written by a national leader.

The Scottish people, as you well know, had no choice in the matter of how Covid-19 was tackled. You simply assumed to yourself a totalitarian authority beyond your remit, as did Boris Johnson, and used it with police backing to suppress civil liberties and human rights. In effect, you imposed the Beijing method to treat the Chinese virus!

The people did not willingly co-operate in this appalling abuse of authority, they were coerced into compliance. If many resigned themselves to the power grab and its dire consequences it was only because government and the media terrified them into submission with propaganda to the effect that the plague was upon them. Fear is a great persuader, especially irrational fear induced psychologically by a government-sponsored ‘silent assassin’ narrative.

The ruse was finally exposed on June 7, however, when the Scottish Government in conjunction with Police Scotland permitted an anti-racism demonstration to take place on Glasgow Green. There were thousands of people present at that rally, very few of them wearing face masks and none of them observing social distancing rules.

This single event was proof positive that the Scottish Government had never truly believed Covid-19 to be a threat to the general public, a fact borne out by official statistics showing that less than 2500 people from a population of 5.5 million have died with the virus, though not necessarily of the virus.

This relatively small number equates to 0.04% of the Scottish population, of which around half were elderly people locked down in care homes while the remainder were largely people with compromised immune systems. In fine, these were tragic deaths of people who would have been at risk from any respiratory virus.

The same can be said of statistics south of the border; a relatively low percentage of deaths in terms of overall population conflated with deaths from all manner of other causes due to a general suspension of post mortem examinations and similarly questionable methods.

If 40% of empty NHS acute beds in the UK at the height of the “crisis” tells us anything it is that there was never a plague, just a virus which, as Sir Chris Whitty, Chief Medical Officer for England, declared from Downing Street on May 11, “is harmless for the majority”.

Both the Scottish and UK governments have terrorised the British public for three months now in the matter of this virus, using it to suppress democratic freedoms in an unprecedented manner and placing the economy in a serious downward spiral. It is a surreal turn of events that is Constitutionally radical and evidentially unjustifiable.

Furthermore, both governments have imposed the most disgraceful restrictions on religious worship while allowing massive anarchist gatherings and riots to take place in the public square to the great detriment of the established order. This tactic of simultaneous oppression of religion and toleration of public anarchy is classic Marxism.

Given that the same cultural Marxist subversion is being mirrored in the Democrat-led States of America right now, always with the approval of the left wing media, I think it not unreasonable to suspect that the free world is undergoing an orchestrated geopolitical assault on democracy with a view to replacing it with the “New Normal” of Socialist Totalitarianism.

Whatever the end game, official statistics and declarations conclusively prove that this Police State phenomenon has nothing whatever to do with a genuine health threat. Rather, it is our Western democratic culture that is under threat and the informed public are catching on.

Given the unprecedented nature of this bold assault on British freedom it is now evident that the UK desperately needs a new system of politics, one in which patriotic men and women recognise anew that they are elected to serving office and not to self-serving ruling power.

Until that happy day dawns, let me assure you that I will never abide by mandatory face masks on public transport, the 2m distancing rule or any other unscientific imposition on my freedom. Neither will I submit to surveillance methods such as track and trace or abusive legislation to force mandatory vaccination. This kind of government overreach belongs in Communist China and north Korea, not in free democratic Britain!

Comment: 

Let’s all write to Nicola Sturgeon to tell her we are entirely fed up with this unnecessary lockdown; we want our freedom back.  She is so keen to act independently of England, so instead of following in Boris’s footsteps, implementing the same easing of restrictions as he introduces in England a day or so after him, why not own up to the fact that there is no real threat at all to the population of Scotland and we ought to (not “may”) return to normal, ordinary, everyday life, with immediate effect.  

That’s more or less what I’m planning to write – not going to waste an afternoon or a bunch of words on her.  Just a few lines to get the message across that not the entire Scottish population is as gullible as it may seem right now.  People are beginning to express dissent from the “new normal” so let Catholic Truth readers, lurkers and bloggers get there first!   You know it makes sense!

Nicola Sturgeon wiping away a tear  on reading letters exposing virus propaganda, demanding our freedom back – we’d sooner have the Scottish Government give us back our civil liberties than independence from England!
