  2. Thanks webtrekker, I really appreciate you sharing the comments. I enjoyed them all, and some are very informative. I feel the urge to say that at times I’ve searched a persons name in a comments section; which has been part of some good / interesting research.
  3. I wasn’t sure whether to share this as it’s not uncommon to hear this sort of thing now. Not like ‘before’, when it was almost an immense relief to catch a comment against the narrative, but still, it’s of interest … GB News Headliners “ Mail cuts pose risks to patient safety, say NHS chiefs “ Josh Howie; I think they’re deliberately sending them late … I get texts from my GP Nick Dixon; Yeah, it’s mainly take the vaccine isn’t it …That’s the only time you hear from the NHS when it’s time for you to take a vaccine. Cressida Wetton; They’re still texting you? Nick; They’re still trying. They haven’t realised I’m a pure blood till I die. Except I won’t die, ‘cause I’m a pure blood.

  7. All the headlines have different numbers. This one stood out from the guardian Taiwan 7.7 magnitude earthquake: seven dead and hundreds injured
  8. This series is on the BBC now. I searched ‘Theranos’ on the DIF, and I’m sharing the links. It was good to re-read the posts around those threads too!

  11. Thanks, yes I found it all really strange. It was reported almost to attract as little attention as possible. One day I thought I’d look and see how he died, see if it was an heart attack or, you know … and if I hadn’t I still might not have known. Granted there was a brief bit on the news ‘later’, which was just about long enough to mention the word catastrophic. The funeral was also quite hush hush wasn’t it?
  12. Camilla was on BBC news, which showed scenes of her filling in for Charles. Yesterday in Shrewsbury, today in Worcester. Two girls gave her ‘kind’ get well posters / cards for Kate and Charles. Now we’ve got a PM and a ‘Queen’ that no-one wanted. What a great scam. I expect this is a big part of it, as well as normalising illness. Sky News; Saturday 23 March 2024 “As King Charles undergoes cancer treatment, Queen Camilla continues to step in for him at public events.”
  13. Can you think up a U and an N to slip in there, just for fun?
  14. What a con. So obvious ... I mean yes of course it's true ... The script is funny. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-13232575/Kate-Charles-heart-heart-hours-Princess-revealed-cancer-diagnosis-world-King-left-feeling-emotional-private-lunch-daughter-law-sources-say-shared-health-battle-cemented-special-bond.html Kate and Charles' heart-to-heart hours before Princess revealed cancer diagnosis to the world: King was left 'feeling very emotional' after private lunch with daughter-in-law - as sources say shared health battle has 'cemented' special bond Months earlier, Charles had donned his dressing robe and 'toddled' over to comfort Princess Kate as they both recovered from surgery at the London Clinic.
  15. These ideas are much more interesting than the ones on the news and soap operas. Thomas died and barely a word was said about it. Anyone else; they'd be making a documentary. If it was a celebrity they'd be gossiping and speculating on the reasons why.
  16. I clicked on a twitter link, 6 posts back which was shared by EnigmaticWorld on March 12th, and saw this which I thought I'd share. I'm still quite new to understanding these labels! Everything is a bloody label now, huh. But anyway, just yesterday I was questioning once again, the sabotage, which is daily now, and who is behind it? Within 20 -27 years I've seen countries that I recognise have the foundations eaten away. The people I see around me are completely innocent and are just being stitched up. Aren't they entitled / allowed to have a normal family life.
  17. https://www.upday.com/uk/man-becomes-first-to-be-jailed-in-england-for-cyber-flashing?utm_source=upday&utm_medium=referral Man becomes first to be jailed in England for cyber-flashing teenage girl The first person in England and Wales to be convicted of a cyber-flashing offence has been jailed for 66 weeks. " Nicholas Hawkes was convicted under the Online Safety Act after cyber-flashing became an offence on January 31 this year. " The offence carries a maximum two-year sentence. Despite his previous offending, Hawkes has reportedly not received any treatment. Though he was offered 12 appointments with a psychiatrist he did not receive them as the waiting list was too long, the court was told.
  18. I read a story about Salisbury, USA where they spent nearly 500 grand on sand for sea defences, and this was in the article " Climate change is forecast to bring more bad weather, such as hurricanes, to the north east of the United States as waters warm, some scientists say. Worldwide, sea levels have risen faster since 1900, putting hundreds of millions of people at risk, the United Nations has said. And erosion from the changing conditions jeopardises beaches the world over, according to European Union researchers.
  19. I see old horseface is at Cheltenham, poor thing.
  20. Yes that was my first thought. I'm tempted to think that Kate will 'rise' again at / after Easter like 'they' said, and will talk openly about her condition; shining the spotlight on the idea that everyone is ill nowadays, and the scourge of the evil conspiracy theorists who used social media to torment her in her recovery. it's a hate crime? 'They' haven't said a lot but one interesting quote is ... "She hopes that the public will understand her desire to maintain as much normality for her children as possible; and her wish that her personal medical information remains private," the palace said. I also find it curious that she / it has joined the strange cult of what I call the apology club. I don't know why there is this obsession with apologies ... demanding apologies and in turn practically destroying the word apology, maybe in the last 20 years, but now Kate has apologised ... "Like many amateur photographers, I do occasionally experiment with editing. I wanted to express my apologies for any confusion the family photograph we shared yesterday caused. I hope everyone celebrating had a very happy Mother's Day,” the Princess of Wales wrote in a post shared on social media around 10:30 a.m.
  21. I caught a glimpse of this front page on GB News Headliners and did a quick search on the 'inquiry'. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2024/03/12/covid-inquiry-biased-say-scientists/ Covid inquiry appears 'fundamentally biased', say scientists www.telegraph.co.uk The Covid Inquiry appears to be “fundamentally biased” and is failing to examine the costs of lockdown, leading scientists have warned. In a letter to Baroness Hallett, the inquiry chairman, the group of 55 professors and academics express their concerns that the process is “not living up to its mission” to evaluate the mistakes made during the pandemic, assess whether Covid measures were appropriate, and to prepare the country for the next pandemic They warn that a “lack of neutrality” means the inquiry “gives the impression of being fundamentally biased” and appears to have led to “predetermined conclusions, for example, to lockdown faster next time”. In the letter, published on Tuesday, the group states that the inquiry is neglecting to hear evidence from those who suffered from the “negative effects” of pandemic policy decisions, or scientists who disagree with choices made by the Government. As the second module of the inquiry comes to a close, they call for this to be urgently addressed and greater focus to be placed on the “economic and social cost of Covid policies to British society”. The letter was organised by Dr Kevin Bardosh, an expert in infection medicine at Edinburgh University and Prof Sunetra Gupta, an epidemiologist at Oxford University. Worklessness ‘a worrying trend’ It comes as Richard Hughes, chairman of the Office for Budget Responsibility, warned on Tuesday that worklessness had become a “worrying trend” in the economy since the pandemic. Mr Hughes told the Treasury select committee that the economy had been growing as a result of net migration but now the it was suffering from a reversal in its workforce amid “rising levels of inactivity and a falling participation rate”. He said: “It looks as though persistently high levels of inactivity seem to be a feature of the post-pandemic environment and one which is worrying from the point of view of human welfare.” So far, the Covid Inquiry has examined the Government’s resilience and preparedness, as well as decision making and political governance across the UK. The next set of inquiry modules include one on the Government’s business and financial response, and another focusing on education, children and young people. Academics hope the cost of lockdown policies will be scrutinised more closely in these upcoming sections of the inquiry. The group includes academics from York, Durham, Bristol and Exeter universities as well as Imperial College London and King’s College London, in fields ranging from global health policy and medicine to ethics, law and statistics. Dr Bardosh, who is director of Collateral Global, a British think-tank which was set up to examine pandemic policies, told The Telegraph ahead of the publication of the letter that he wanted to write to Lady Hallett before the list of “core participants” is drawn up for the next set of modules. While anyone can submit evidence to the inquiry, “core participant” groups enjoy special status, including the right to representation and the ability to make legal submissions, suggest questions for witnesses and receive disclosure of documentation. ‘Time to recognise their biases’ “The letter is an attempt to get the inquiry to recognise that they have got some things wrong, they still have time to redirect it to be more impartial,” Dr Bardosh said. “It is really important that the inquiry recognises they have had these biases and shortcomings in Modules One and Two so they don’t carry it over into the other modules.” Previously, MPs have written to Lady Hallett to urge caution about the direction of the inquiry. But this is the first time that a group of eminent academics have raised concerns. The letter goes on to say that the inquiry is taking “key assumptions for granted instead of examining and critiquing them”. It states: “The consensus position in pre-2020 pandemic plans was that non-pharmaceutical interventions, including lockdown, had weak evidence of effectiveness, and were predicted to cause substantial harm to society, especially if used for prolonged periods. “This informed the initial response to Covid in early 2020. Yet, the inquiry assumes that these measures are effective and appropriate. As a result, it downplays the harms to society caused by two years of emergency infection control mandates.” The academics also note that the inquiry “lacks impartiality” in the selection and questioning of expert witnesses. “It has given preferential treatment to scientific advisers on Sage, who have a vested interest in maintaining the justification for their policy recommendations,” they say. ‘Confrontational rather than inquisitorial’ “Very few scientists with an alternative position have been asked to testify, and the inquiry has been confrontational rather than inquisitorial in its questioning of these views. “The inquiry has not seriously questioned the hypotheses and assumptions offered to government, especially from government-appointed modellers, which were used to justify Covid policies. Neither has it seriously examined the social and economic costs of lockdown.” Sage is the Government’s Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies. A spokesman for the inquiry said: “The inquiry was established in June 2022 and is entirely independent. Lady Hallett, chairman of the inquiry, has said repeatedly that she will not reach any conclusions until she has considered all of the evidence; that includes the written evidence. “The inquiry does not act on assumptions and has called expert witnesses who question the use of lockdowns and other interventions, as well as experts who advised on the imposition of lockdowns. “The inquiry will consider important issues such as the impact of lockdowns, key scientific and policy questions as well as population health and wellbeing in forthcoming modules. Our modular approach is clearly set out on our website and we will report during the lifespan of the inquiry, with the first report scheduled for this summer.”
  22. This is along the lines of what I was thinking yesterday when I heard that certain people don’t feel safe on the streets of London. I thought of the constant hypocrisy. Nobody cared when we were forced to give up our rights, our health, our freedom. Also during the Convid era nobody spoke about war, poverty, terrorism, or in fact anything else at all. Everything else just magically disappeared. Particularly until the BLM theatrics. Can always rely on Bob to tell it like it is …
