Lord Sumption: Only Permanent Lockdown Will Work (That’s The Plan)…

Former Supreme Court judge Lord Jonathan Sumption has criticised the government’s approach to the coronavirus pandemic, saying it has employed fear as a means to justify its actions. Speaking with talkRADIO’s Julia Hartley-Brewer, he warned that Downing Street could hold on to its emergency powers after there is no need for them: “The problem is that fear is the main pillar of every authoritarian government. Fear has been skilfully and I fear deliberately employed throughout this crisis.” (From the Introduction to the above video on talkRadio’s YouTube Platform).

I really can’t improve on some of the comments posted over at YouTube, underneath the above video… Which of the following points do you find most compelling? 

Banned from, going out, protesting, freedom of speech, seeing family, living our lives…. This is Tyranny…

The cases are fake and so are the polls. Absolutely treasonous government. Covid 1984. Dystopian future becoming a dystopian present

The soldiers of the past must be spinning in their graves at how easily the British public have rolled over and surrendered their hard-fought freedom, we’re a disgrace to these brave men and women.

Lockdown Boris and co in prison. No to forced tests and vaccines.

When you takeaway people’s jobs and you leave them with no money to pay their bills and feed their children and then they lose their homes trust me COVID-19 will be the least of your worries. 

“Tyranny” strikes me as being a compelling  summary of what is going on, but then so does “Dystopia” – what we are experiencing is the very opposite of “Utopia”, that’s for sure;  the commentator who makes the point about the British solders also resonates – I’ve even seen Government ministers having the sheer nerve to wear a poppy this month despite betraying everything that it is meant to represent. 

Share your own thoughts about the interview. Especially say (1) whether or not you agree with Lord Sumption’s answer to that key question: will we ever get our freedoms back?  And (2) answer this question: where is the religious equivalent of Lord Sumption? Obviously, and scandalously, Pope Francis is never going to fight for our personal and religious freedoms but is there no bishop anywhere in the UK who shares Lord Sumption’s concerns? If not, we need to explore why not… again!   

UK: Second Lockdown Inevitable – Will The Public Continue To Obey, Or Rebel? 

Comment: 

In the highly likely event of another full-scale national lockdown (which is sure to include Scotland), will the people continue to comply unquestioningly?  Will it dawn on anyone that no Government can eradicate a virus – otherwise, thousands would not die from the flu every winter… Will it dawn on anyone?

But here’s the key point for consideration.  The previous lockdown was sold to us as being of very short duration – and look at us now.  Is this second, highly likely lockdown (despite the thin protestations that this is not what anyone in Government wants to happen) likely to only last for the proposed two weeks?  Really?  Or is that as likely as the Government handing back its “emergency” powers when the “emergency” has passed.  No question mark there, because that’s a rhetorical question.  Share your thoughts.

Governments Bribed To Create Covid Panic – NOT A Conspiracy Theory…

Comment: 

The above video is spectacular in its exposé of the truth about the pandemic – clearly the Irish Government is no different from the governments of the UK in its crackdown on the civil liberties of the people of Ireland.  In every respect, Dave Cullen’s video is first class.  Supported by facts and figures, he confirms what we’ve discussed on this blog many times, that this pandemic is, in fact, a “scamdemic”, engineered by the “powers-that-be” who want to achieve a  de-populated, “greener” world – by fair means or foul. Bribery seems to have been one method used to get world governments to impose their Covid-19 panic and restrictions. It’s by no means unusual for conditions to be attached to loans, of course, so the term “bribe” is likely to be rejected on that basis.  In any event, whether “conditions” or “bribes” it’s murky stuff.  Dave Cullen highlights the claim made by the President of Belarus…

FROM ARMSTRONG ECONOMICS…

Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko REFUSED the offer and stated that he could not accept such an offer and would put his people above the needs of the IMF and World Bank. This is NOT a conspiracy. You may research this yourself. He actually said this!

Now IMF and World Bank are bailing out failing airlines with billions of dollars, and in exchange, they are FORCING airline CEOs to implement VERY STRICT POLICIES such as FORCED face masks covers on EVERYONE, including SMALL CHILDREN, whose health will suffer as a result of these policies.

And if it is true for Belarus, then it is true for the rest of the world! The IMF and World Bank want to crash every major economy with the intent of buying over every nation’s infrastructure at cents on the dollar!   Source – Armstrong Economics

Consider…

Is anyone really surprised at the idea of international bodies bribing Governments or, given what we know of the characters of our political leaders, that they might find such bribery – or “conditions” –  acceptable?   

Covid-19: Is the Pandemic Panic Dying? 

Comment…

Does the optimism in the above video, hopeful that the end of the pandemic restrictions is nigh, reflect what is happening in the UK?  Or is the fact that we are living under the persistent threat of more local lockdowns and fresh restrictions, an indication that, on this side of The Pond, at least, life as before, life under the “old normal” is not set to return any time soon – if ever?   See, in the short video clip below, the Scottish First Minister, just a few short days ago, setting out the latest limits to the freedom of Glaswegians – the majority of whom will humbly (or stupidly, depending on your point of view) comply, without question…  The USA is led by a President who wants to restore the “old normal” – the UK is led by those who appear to be committed to the “new” normal – tyrannical rule, “rule by decree”.  Is that a fair interpretation of current events? 

 

Will “Normal” Life Ever Return… Can You REMEMBER Life Before Lockdown? 

Comment: 

Just about everything Tucker Carlson says about the USA applies to the UK as well.  Nobody talks about Chinese Whispers any more – it’s Chinese authoritarianism screaming from the rooftops. 

The one difference between the USA and the UK is that there is almost no  fightback in the UK – or certainly none being reported in the media.  The Keep Britain Free movement, for example, hasn’t been mentioned in any news programme, to the best of my knowledge, and there are just no commentators like Tucker Carlson or any of his peers, in this part of the world. It’s sinister in the extreme.   There are occasional protests, including from churchmen in the USA, while the Catholic bishops and clergy here in the UK are fully complicit in the march of Marxism and the transformation of our system of government into blatant totalitarianism.  Given that totalitarian Governments are not known for their tolerance of religion, this identifies these cowardly clergymen as “useful idiots” – by the bucketful. 

Life now, during and following lockdown (now eased a little but with the possibility of a return to house arrest always hanging over us)  does, indeed, resemble life in Communist China. Indeed, lockdown has already returned to several parts of England, as well as to the city of Aberdeen in Scotland.  Life is horrendous now. Take a walk in any shopping centre without wearing a mask and watch the sheer terror on the faces around you. It’s going to be a walk in the park (in a manner of speaking) to keep conditioning us to the point where our memory of life before lockdown has been completely erased. 

The key question is…  has this been planned?  Are we now into the first phase of openly totalitarian government in Scotland and the wider UK?   

We can ask the question now on this platform – but for how much longer?    

Why Are So Many Young People Unhappy? And Who Is To Blame?

Comment:

Out and about this morning,  I marvelled – as I always do these days – at the tangible fear around me.  Nobody seems to notice the contradictions.  I saw three people in a shop, all wearing masks, all standing shoulder to shoulder chatting right beside a “social distancing, keep two metres apart” sign 😀  Then a member of staff, wearing a perspex mask,  licked her finger again and again,  in order to separate plastic bags… It would be hilarious were it not so serious.  The  above video was made, I think I’m right in saying, just before lockdown, so that particular fear (of sickness and death) is not included in the possible reasons for unhappiness among young people.  Whatever, the following quote from Mark Twain is perhaps why there is so much unhappiness around, and not just among the young.  How many people spend any time investigating the “why”?  Goodness, according to the several conversations I’ve had today, nobody is spending time investigating the “why” for allowing the Government to control us to the point where they can tell us what to wear.  Over to you!

 

A Very Happy Brexit Day! 

Comment: 

Mairead McGuinness is the first Vice President of the European Parliament, in post since 2017.   In several news interviews following Nigel Farage’s final speech at the European Parliament she highlighted Nigel’s use of the word “hate”,  shock-horrified at the use of that word.  However, contrary to her disingenuous insinuations, Nigel did not say that he hated any person, or group or nation, merely the structures, the system. It’s reasonable to assume that Ms McGuinness would hate to live under the totalitarian regime in North Korea and she would be outraged, surely, if anyone misinterpreted that sentiment to suggest that she hates the people of North Korea.

In an email exchange earlier today, the reader who expressed enthusiasm about marking Brexit Day with this thread, threw cold water on Mairead McGuinness’s remarks about the use of the word “hate” by Nigel Farage in the above clip – he writes: 

“I don’t care what that humourless Irish woman thinks. I hate the EU as well. It seems that ‘hate’ has become a crime, but there’s nothing wrong with hate under certain circumstances. It’s quite right to hate evil. The EU is of its nature thoroughly evil, as are all totalitarian systems (although whether every willing participant realises that is another matter) so there’s nothing wrong with calling it evil. I feel like I’ve just got out of prison! And a Happy Brexit Day to you!”

Anyway, share your thoughts on the UK’s future outside the EU.  With no need to implement EU directives, is there a chance we can begin to restore  Christian culture, not least in the area of personal morality, and the teaching of marriage and family life in schools?  

Finally, as an acknowledgment of the one million-plus Scots who voted to leave the EU  – but who have been generally ignored in virtually all the discussions about Brexit since 2016 – let’s launch this discussion  by flying our national flag, as we pray for Scotland and the rest of the UK, at this important juncture in our history. 

St Andrew, pray for us!
St George, pray for us! 

St David, pray for us!
St Patrick, pray for us!

Our Lady, Queen of Peace… pray for us!
