  1. Sky News “ We’re going to take you straight back to the Covid inquiry where Martin Reynolds also known as Party Marty is giving evidence … “ “I don’t intend to ask you if you received a fixed penalty notice, but …” “I’d like to say how deeply sorry I am and I’d like to apologise unreservedly for all those who suffered” “For the public whose loved ones were dying in their droves” Almost funny when the ‘chair’ coughed, apologised, and blew her nose at the end of ‘that’ part Would’ve been arrested for that not so long ago? As I scribble this down she’s still coughing in the background. Big deal eh? So normal. Bastards
  2. Live sky news report from Westminster on Suela Braverman “Hate” … “Hate” “Bad apples, sorry bad actors” “Terrorism laws are being looked at” We’re going to take you straight back to the Covid inquiry where Martin Reynolds also known as Party Marty is giving evidence …
  3. I hope you don't mind me sharing the Conservative woman comments section and of course a link to the article / letter written anonymously that stirred up the replies, you might be in the mood for having a glance though some of them. I'm hoping to get back to that, famous last words! https://www.conservativewoman.co.uk/israel-must-strike-or-lose-the-fear-factor-for-ever/ " Israel must strike or lose the fear factor forever "
  4. Oh God, really? Besides anything else I can't stand voice, and all of the exaggerated waffling. He must be so proud of his part in what has happened to this country.
  5. I always say to myself thou shall not worship false idols. I also believe it's imperative to funnel peoples attention, and to pull on peoples emotions. And to 'force' people to focus on the scripted / changing subjects. And to waste energy and love on evil people, while telling us that others are evil. Any kind or increasingly outspoken 'celebrities' are bastardised, accused of a 'historic crime', or retired off. Love and joy and laughter and natural beauty ... are not to be encouraged, but are still to be found ! Don't let the bastards grind 'you ' down. 'Evil' laughter
  6. Yes, absolutely agree, thanks And there's that bloody magic word again; 'unprecedented'. Lately there's been so many disasters, blamed on the climate, and so many people abandoned, and left to dig with their bare hands, and equivalent!
  7. Thanks webtrekker, yes I know what you mean, certainly rings a bell. I gather it was August 16th 2022. I think he also had a few words with Brian Cox Re: climate change, and would no doubt be called an extreme climate denier. Because of your question I did a quick search and glanced at two 'good looking' speeches he gave, which are on the Australian parliament website.
  8. This clip was sent to me I changed the X to twitter, as recommended on the forum, thanks …
  9. I just wanted to share a few words that i enjoyed reading, edited from the independent article. https://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/health-and-families/sam-neill-blood-cancer-update-b2430865.html Earlier this year ... he revealed that he was being treated for angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma. He had originally undergone chemotherapy ... the cancer soon stopped responding ... he went onto an experimental anti-cancer drug ... Neill, 76, shared that he’d upped his dosage of the “grim and depressing” drug from once a month to every two weeks. He has now been in remission for 12 months. Neill told ABC’s Australian Story that while he would be on the treatment indefinitely, doctors have told him that, at some point, it will stop working. “I’m prepared for that,” he said, adding that he is “not remotely afraid” of death. He had first found lumps in his neck in early 2022. “I started to look at my life and realise how immensely grateful I am for so much of it,” Neill said. “I started to think I better write some of this down because I’m not sure how long I have to live. I was running against the clock." “I’d really like another decade or two, you know?” “We’ve built all these lovely terraces, we’ve got these olive trees and cypresses, and I want to be around to see it all mature. And I’ve got my lovely little grandchildren. I want to see them get big. But as for the dying? I couldn’t care less.” ... “I love acting. It’s really good for me to keep walking onto new sets with young actors and all that stimulation. New words, new ideas, there’s nothing like it. I never want to give that up. The idea of retirement, of having to play golf, fills me with untold dread,” he said.
  10. An Irish woman shot dead in an apparent murder-suicide in New York was previously married to an American chef, Larry Zeitschek, once suspected of helping the IRA to break into a police station in Castlereagh. Taking place on St Patrick’s Day 2002, the breach at the top security police station in east Belfast was considered as one of the most embarrassing security breaches of the Troubles. Police had claimed he helped the IRA with the break-in, but Mr Zaitschek blamed it on a rogue police officer who wished to blame the IRA in order to get Sinn Féin excluded from Stormont. Returning to America before the 2002 break-in, Mr Zaitschek became subject to an extradition order before the case against him was dropped in 2009 https://www.irishnews.com/news/northernirelandnews/2023/10/26/news/denise_morgan_irish_woman_murdered_in_new_york_was_previously_married_to_man_suspected_of_aiding_ira_s_castlereagh_break_in-3729844/
  11. I had to read the end of the following sentence twice! https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2023/oct/25/unloved-by-party-or-country-rishi-longs-for-his-old-hedge-fund-life-in-california John Grace, Wednesday October 25th 2023 " Labour’s Lilian Greenwood raised the awkward question of Sunak’s missing WhatsApp messages. Surely a techbro could access the messages on his phone. Especially as we now knew it wasn’t lost and was working just fine. Er … no, said RishGPT. He had handed over hundreds of messages to the Covid inquiry. Just none of the ones it had actually wanted. Hopefully. "
  12. PMQ's Wednesday 25th October 2023 https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/live/uk-politics-67211150 " Nottingham South Labour MP Lilian Greenwood talks about Rishi Sunak not giving his WhatsApp messages to the Covid inquiry. She asks if he feels the devices should be handed to experts to retrieve the messages the PM, she says, has been unable to provide or locate. Sunak replies to say he looks forward to giving evidence at the inquiry later this year and says he and the government have fully cooperated with it by handing over tens of thousands of documents. " ( I saw the clip and it was one of those typical dodges. )
  13. The tiny jigsaw pieces of life ... Just wanted to share this rather nice quote about the wonderful Michael Caine, at the same time as adding that it's despicable how older people were treated in the last few years, and generally. So many people must have still not picked up their hobbies and volunteering and the things that keep them "fitter". These people are a gift and each one has so much potential / so much to give / so much to inspire ... (If an individual had done that they would be strung up in society / in the media, as we well know.) The Great Escaper 'revived Michael Caine in some ways', says director https://www.radiotimes.com/movies/great-escaper-revived-michael-caine-exclusive-newsupdate/ "Early on when we were talking, he said: 'What I want is I want to make them laugh and I want to make him cry. And I think this script could do that. Can we do that?' And it was this absolute simplicity that you could see he found it very hard to resist." He added that there was a potential "problem" regarding Caine's physical condition but that he had actually improved his fitness levels since he played the part. "He's got fitter since," he said. "I would say actually making the film kind of revived him in some ways. A lot of older actors through COVID times weren't sure if they'd get back on the stage or on the set. And so, I think that there was an amazing resurgence of energy."
  14. https://www.972mag.com/palestinian-citizens-israel-gaza-war/ In this war, Palestinians in Israel are trapped between two painful realities ( This 'text' is a good insight to the use of video whether real or 'Hollywood', to create a reaction in the human heart, coming straight to our hands from the pied piper? ) https://www.politico.eu/article/israel-has-lost-my-sympathy-says-croatian-president/ “With all my sympathy for Israel, which unfortunately they lost within 15 minutes … there is no place for other flags in Croatia, except in strictly regulated situations,” Milanović said. “I condemned [Hamas’] murders, I even expressed disgust and abhorrence, but the right to defense does not include the right to revenge and the killing of civilians,” he added https://time.com/6324741/israel-hostages/ What Hamas recorded on smart phones and uploaded to social media was a 21st century pogrom. The massacre of more than 1,400 people renewed and validated the dread that resides in every Jewish Israeli as a kind of inheritance—the embedded collective memory of trauma that has kept a society’s sense of confidence eggshell-thin even behind the most powerful fighting force in the Middle East. 6,000 bombs in the first six days ( There are witnesses accounts in the Time article. Full of repetitive numbers and words as usual. ) __________________________________________ Below are some of of the little banners on the bottom of the BBC news Antonio Guterres; I condemn hoffifying and unprecedented Hamas attack. UN chief; It's false to say I was justifying acts of terror by Hamas Israel's UN ambassador again calls on Guterres to quit Biden; 'No going back' to status quo between Israelies and Palestinians UN chief addresses controversy after israeli anger
  15. If I may say I found your post to be very positive as usual, and always enjoy your contributions. I quite agree with LastOneLeftInTheCounty that the media is using the 15 minute term in many seemingly unrelated stories. Also I like, and use the term; light at the end of the tunnel, but at the same time I notice that it is used by the media in a very deceiving way, and is worth recording / for the record.
  16. Thanks Robin, I endeavour to not be in fear, especially when a system is coercing 'you' into it. At those times I find it important to feel love in my heart. Love of anything and everything (within reason ) along the lines of the choice between love and fear. I want to read your link thoroughly. I read this comment there; Diana Mara Henry Writes Diana’s Voice Oct 24 Thank G-d for indigenous peoples. Their love of their creator has imbued them with a spirit of wisdom and self-respect that offers hope for humanity. Like (53)
  17. I left out the video clip as its only 3 posts up ... "Everything transparent" ... "nothing to hide" ... I sometimes wonder if that's what was meant by the 15 minutes of fame that everyone will apparently have, and the coincidence of 15 minute cities. Also every day the word clear is used in the speeches and it always 'prickles' me. I suppose if all the data was splurged in one go then we would all be 'famous' for 15 minutes? Repetitive words ATM include unprecedented, clear, light at end of tunnel, 15 minutes, six, climate, crisis ...
  18. Channel 4 News, 16 January 2021 Professor Baker is a member of New Zealand Ministry of Health's Pandemic Influenza Technical Advisory Group I know time is short but it's interesting to watch the 2 minute clip of epidemiologist Professor Baker, who helped devise the NZ response. " He was speaking today (2021) at a conference organised by the UK's trade union backed zero covid campaign " " This has become the dominant approach, that is elimination ... It's working in Vietnam ... it's working in China ... it just requires a commitment from the government ... strong leadership ... to try and achieve zero cases ... now it's important to remember that you don't always get to zero ... you will have setbacks ... New Zealand has had outbreaks ... countries doing this are doing very well from a population health perspective ... they're protecting their economies ... they're all recovering much faster ... if you want to pursue a rapid decrease in mortality you have to do everything you can at the moment, and of course vaccination is a remarkable development, and that will be one of the main exit strategies globally ... but in the meantime you will have a lot of people who will die unnecessarily unless you pursue a zero covid approach. " Professor Baker's website shows his research interests, activities and awards. https://www.otago.ac.nz/wellington/departments/publichealth/staff/professor-michael-baker-department-of-public-health ___________________________________________ I found a little sticker on the pavement which lead me to a website called Covid Action UK, originally the Zero Covid Campaign. Astonishing. Fascinating. Disturbing. Endless lists of campaigns. I saw the video above there, and I saw that there are many others.

  19. Thanks Campion, it's so interesting. I think I heard it first from Bill Bryson, funnily enough! We see how easy it is to manipulate the public, generally, by shouting the ice is melting, the poor polar bears, the flooding ... !! It's a form of control, tax, distraction, diversion and also torture, with the repetition repetition repetition, and scaring the kids into believing the world will end. Everyday we see the effects of bad land management, blocked drains, building on wet land, lack of planting the right trees, and so on. It's so natural to believe 'them' as essentially the human heart is good, but there is no limit to the manipulation. The older you get the more you can see it, of course. Might be an idea to keep the young people away from the old, like in Covid. And before that, scaring them of 'strangers'. So devious.
  20. Waterbear TV Text on the screen between programmes; If you want to help fight climate change glue yourself to the TV Don't miss Rebel with a cause ( Greta )
  21. 33 ... Meta is sued by 33 states for 'contributing to youth mental health crisis' by inducing children and teenagers into social media addiction Thirty-three US states are suing Meta Platforms and its Instagram unit, accusing them of intentionally jeopardizing the mental health of children for profit Filed Tuesday in California, the bombshell lawsuit seeks a variety of remedies against the social media giant, including large civil penalties Meta has refuted the claims, saying it is 'disappointed' that attorneys general have taken legal action rather than 'working productively' with it to reduce harm https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-12666935/Meta-sued-DOZENS-statesdamaging-mental-health-teenagers-Facebook-Instagram.html
  22. The Guardian Newspaper; NHS England to investigate why dead people invited for Covid and flu jabs Exclusive: Social media users report receiving ‘priority’ vaccine letters for relatives who died years ago Andrew Gregory Health editor @andrewgregory Tue 24 Oct 2023 https://www.theguardian.com/society/2023/oct/24/nhs-investigate-dead-people-invited-covid-flu-jabs Absolute piss take, as usual. And an advert for X? This is one of the highlights from the article; Another user wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter “It’s so upsetting to get a letter asking your mum to go for a Covid booster when she died 8 years ago! I sincerely hope the dodgy system that sent this to me is not sending them to loved ones who have died of Covid! So much for technology!” ( There's got to be a solution ... )
  23. Thanks Mac. My own research in the ‘early days’ lead me to the GMO connection, which was something of an important/ favourite subject of mine. I read through some of the comments in the Mail and thought I’d share this one; Katrina C. Traverse City MI, United States “ For all of you brilliant know-it-alls who are solving the world's problems here by announcing that fat people just eat too much, there is more to it than that. And some of the first people who will tell you this are foreigners themselves, after they move to America and gain weight suddenly for no reason. America has been doing some GMO editing to our produce supply for decades to try to lower our fertility rates, and it has caused hormonal problems here. There is almost an epidemic of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome in America. Half of the obesity problem in America are probably weight gain from hormonal disruption which is not related to calories. “ End quote
  24. One of the things about the Covid era that struck me and stayed with me, is that they suddenly care about deaths. Money was no object until after when Sunak pretended to be the voice of reason when it came to a limit on debt. Until then the IMF had said spend spend spend. Well no-one ever cared about people freezing to death or dying of hunger, for instance. And now no-one cares to explore excess deaths, except Bridgen and the others we have come to know over these months.
