  1. I think they're just making up new symptoms to try and prolong this as long as they can.

     

    Hey, its summer now, and most flu-like symptoms will have disappeared, now that 'flu-season' is over.

     

    Expect the current list of 'Covid-19 symptoms' to be expanded to include all or some the following:

     

    • sneezing and coughing
    • a runny or blocked nose
    • itchy, red or watery eyes
    • itchy throat, mouth, nose and ears
    • loss of smell
    • pain around your temples and forehead
    • headache
    • earache
    • feeling tired
    • have a tight feeling in your chest
    • be short of breath
    • wheeze and cough

     

    If those sound familiar to anyone at all, that's right, those are symptoms of what is commonly known as 'hay fever;:

    I think this is where the 'second wave' is going to come from...

    Did you know they did another run at that in 2, 000 with Vic Reeves & Bob Mortimer in the leading roles? 

     

    It wasn't as good though. Looking at IMDB it looks like someone else is going to have a crack at a 'remake', as they have something down with the same name as 'in development'.

  4. I doubt there is any functionality available to make this possible, but it would be great if members would just discuss the topic at hand instead of spiralling threads into tiresome arguments and bickering.

     

     

     

  5. This all reminds me somewhat of an episode of "Randall & Hopkirk (Deceased)" from 1969.

     

    Quote

    Jeff is acting as a bodyguard to a beauty queen, Anne Soames, who wants to visit the Public Records Office. An intrigued Marty watches as she uses a special pair of glasses to cut the alarm and later a file is stolen by a man named Pargiter. When Jeff pursues him, Pargiter explains that the stolen document reveals him to be the rightful king of England - with his two heavies as noble lords. He condemns Jeff as a heretic, tying him up along with Anne, who has outlived her usefulness, and leaving them to die in a burning building. However, Marty sets off the fire alarm, the pair are rescued and Pargiter and his heavies are arrested.

     

    For anyone unfamiliar with this series, Jeff Randall is a private investigator ably assisted by his partner Marty Hopkirk, who happens to be a ghost.

     

    It is interesting how in this episode, the 'pretender' Pargiter is cast as the 'villain' of the piece, stealing this document from the Public Records Office in order to prove his rightful claim to be the king of England. Of course, back in 1969 when this was written and aired on TV, a vast majority of the public wouldn't have dared to consider that Queen Elizabeth II was not the rightful head of the Royal Family. This was just "some fiction" of course...

     

    But we do live in some interesting times at present. Though it is perhaps not unsurprising that this news has not reached a wider audience.

     

    The full episode is available to watch on Youtube:

  6. I agree that having signatures would be a nice touch, but there would have to be limitations.

     

    I remember being on a forum once where one member had so much stuff in their signature, it was usually bigger than their post.

    The Remainiacs will whine that we can't afford to finalise Brexit at the moment, due to all of the suffering businesses, but it will be one delay too many I think.

     

     

    I think you've hit a nail on the head there. That will be the 'spin' that will be brought into play.

     

    "Haven't our businesses suffered enough uncertainty through the Covid-19 pandemic already?'

     

    "We need to keep businesses safe" ... "We need to protect the economy" ... The same words and mantras will continue, while they are embedded in the public consciousness.

     

    SAFE

  8. Riots are not a consequence of lockdown.

     

    However they are a consequence of years of social conditioning, exacerbated lately with the rise of 'identity politics', and coupled with the 'blame culture' where everybody is a victim, especially if you're from a 'minority background'.

     

    Many people seem to have forgotten about Rodney King, and the subsequent LA riots in 1992:

    Prior to that of course in the UK in 1981 we had the 'Brixton Riots' in London:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1981_Brixton_riot

     

    More recently in the UK, there were the 2011 riots, sparked by the killing of Mark Duggan by police in Tottenham, which then saw 'copycat' riots and lootings in other UK cities and towns:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2011_England_riots

     

    People have a right to be angry, and to protest. But acting like savages, setting fire to buildings and looting shops and homes ISN'T the answer.

  9. @GarethIckeI know you must both be busy with other things, but it would be really great if you and Jaymie could get more involved with the forum. As a bonus, it would also be super if your dad could join in discussions here too ?

     

    Functionality-wise, I don't really have any suggestions to offer, but being able to embed Bitchute videos would be good.

  10. What concerns me about this are people (elsewhere) commenting on protests being held in London today but being more concerned about the lack of 'social-distancing'. ?

     

    But wait!

    US officials voice virus concerns amid protests

    As mass demonstrations continue across the US amid an outpouring of anger over the death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man, while in police custody, some US officials have warned of the continuing danger posed by the coronavirus outbreak.

    “If you were out protesting last night, you probably need to go get a Covid test this week,” Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms said on Saturday evening.

    Her concerns were echoed by Washington DC Mayor Muriel Bowser, who told NBC News that protesters should consider self-isolating and getting tested.

    "While I saw some people with masks last night, others didn't [wear them]. When I saw some people social distancing, other people were right on top of each other," she said. "So we don't want to compound this deadly virus and the impact it's had on our community."

    Maryland Governor Larry Hogan appeared on CNN and warned: "There's about a 14-day incubation period. So, two weeks from now across America, we're going to find out whether or not this gives us a spike and drives the numbers back up again or not."

    The US has the world's highest number of coronavirus deaths and cases.

    Cities outside the US still under coronavirus restrictions also saw anti-racism protests on Sunday, including London.

     

     

    "You naughty protesters, HOW DARE YOU spread the coronavirus! Get yourselves tested for COVID-19 NOW!"

    Now I know admins can access Pm's and that they had Jaymie's access am happy to wait until the admins have got time to make sure I didn't do this myself in some idiotic manner as I am sure this sort of thing is time stamped.

     

     

     

    From my own experience of administering and moderating forums (and other similar systems) in the past and present, admins and mods do not have the capability to read or view members private messages (with the exception of those messages that get 'reported' to admins).

     

    I can't speak for this Invision Community software, as I've only used it as a 'regular member', but I doubt this system would operate any differently.

     

    The only way I can see that private messages could be read or deleted would be at the database level, which a hacker could do using some kind of malicious SQL script.

  12. I can only speak for my local area in south Birmingham, but there has been activity for the past few months locally, and I do believe it is due to BT rolling out their fibre broadband network, which isn't currently available in my area, hence why I'm forced to use Virgin for my broadband.

     

    As I registered my interest in fibre broadband with BT when I moved here in August 2018, I did receive an email update a few weeks ago to advise me that their engineers would be carrying out surveys and 'preliminary works' in order to prepare for fibre cable installation over the next few weeks along my street. This email came at the time when there was stuff going on with 5G masts being 'attacked' and staff being 'harassed', so notably it did advise that people could say 'hello' to their 'friendly engineers' and ask any questions they might have.

     

    I've also noticed a number of gas and other utility works being carried out around other local areas. If anything, this has been an ideal time to do so, while there's been less traffic on the roads. Certainly a few weeks ago now, there were temporary traffic lights in Sparkbrook where a big hole had been dug up in the Stratford Road, at any other time this would have caused enormous traffic chaos and delays, but not so this time.

     

    While it is important to keep vigilant and keep a watch on what's going on, it is also important to remember that not everything is a 'conspiracy'.

    You were absolutely right. They did ask for extension on 15th of May and have received the answer on 25th of May from Brussels who happily offers 1 or 2 year extension if UK is ready to make financial contributions towards EU. Joint Committee has to make agreement with UK until 1st of July.

    Thanks for that, first I'd heard of this. But this isn't a formal request from the Government being replied to, it looks like a response to a 'begging' letter sent by a handful of hardcore ultra-Remainer MPs.

     

    So while not legally binding in any way, it certainly gives you an idea of what is going to be forced on the Government soon.

     

    And perhaps this is why there is so much 'pressure' being applied to Boris and the Tory government to 'deal with' Mr Cummings - maybe the 'plan' is to get him out of the picture, then a 'new' senior aide can be appointed who will be more, shall we say, 'favourable towards the EU' and will 'advise' Mr Johnson accordingly?

    Its regarding the potential for future data loss 

     

    And how to mitigate that 

     

    People have made noise about loss of their personal posts and data 

     

    So some of us suggested forum users should back up their own data 

     

    Grumpy is expanding on that in this thread 

     

    Thanks, that was exactly my aim.

    Have to admit it does all sound a bit like " oh you got deleted well make your own facebook loser " 

     

    But thats not the intention 

     

     

    Correct, I'm not saying anyone should set up a 'rival' website, as I'm sure once things are back up and running then the David Icke Social will continue to be a valuable resource which members can make valuable contributions to.

     

    But understand that this forum will be watched and no doubt targeted again in future. I'm just saying that those members who compile and provide detailed research and other material should make sure that they keep their own backup copies elsewhere, "just in case".

     

    And going back to what I said earlier about 'Youtubers", I forget who it was exactly now, but I remember watching some video before where they were talking about a fellow 'content creator' who was whining at Youtube because they had deleted their channel and their 'hours of content' which had been uploaded over several years was all gone and lost.

     

    The phrase I use again is "don't put all your eggs in one basket", always keep your own offline copies of anything you upload to the internet, thats the only way to ever preserve them.

     

     

  15. Yes, for 'local lockdowns' read that as "curfew zones".

     

    And 'viral outbreaks' is a nice convenient excuse to force people into their homes, and arrest anyone who dares be out in the street.

     

    Once again, switch the word "protect" with "control" and things make much more sense.

  16. @rideforever of course 'divide and rule' really is a thing, and religion has been a useful tool through the ages to achieve the same thing.

     

    You could equally see the person on the right as a Christian, with the caption reading as "that Muslim wants your cookie". (Or substitute with any religious group that has been played off against each other over the years)

     

    So I'm sorry, but you lost me by claiming that "the Path is the only answer".

     

    The problem is that a great number of people don't realise that they are being played off against each other, fighting over that single cookie, while the same person who has ALL the cookies, is the person they should be fighting together against.

    Yes, initially I was thinking quite a few sportsmen were smitten with the rumoured, tainted adrenochrome,  as per the likes of Hanks, Madonna, Ellen Degenerate etc (the 'secret' Trump / Q plot). Since then my confidence in the reality of that cunning plan has wavered somewhat.

     

    What is equally interesting is that no 'world leader' (to the best of my knowledge) has 'succumbed' to or died from this 'deadly disease'.

     

    True that we've had people like Boris Johnson 'showing symptoms' and having hospital treatment, but I feel that's been more 'for show' than anything serious.

    But there is more.
    On the right you have a dumb manual worker wearing a hard hat and fluorescent vest ...  so this picture is saying that manual workers, masculine men, are dumb racists.

    This is a typical liberal strategy ... "the deplorables" ... which actually shows the incredible level of malevolence and judgement that the "liberal" represent (of course they say they are the party of tolerance and respect).
    Next thing is that being wary of foreigners is a bad thing.  Well no it is not, only phoney people want to open their front door so anyone walks in.  Those people who have been taught to cut the genitals of their children off so they can be the first on the block to have a teenage sodomite covered in black ink.  Such parents are fundamentally evil and destroy their families ... for them they can believe that everyone is just great.

    For real people and all of nature, you stick with your own in the main, with some intermingling on the boundary.
    And then ... this black guy over there who looks a bit pissed off ... is that what black people do then ... look pissed off whilst waiting for the white man do make a decision.  I don't think so, black people are like any people they get on with life, and look after their own.
    And last thing ... the old white bastard man.  Because all old white men are bastards.

    This isn't divide and rule, but a cunning psychologically constructed Liberal image ... which ultimately comes from some truly nasty and psychologically twisted people, that they are.

     

     

    You're missing the point slightly, in that what the image doesn't show is what the 'old white man' in the middle (who has more cookies than he could eat) then turns and says to the man on the left.

    Is there something very wrong with the millennial generation?
    Are the problems we see today a result of this generation entering and taking positions of authority in society.

    Society seemed to look very different 20 years ago, but rapidly a shift has happened in a generation.

    Is there something badly wrong with that generation?

     

    Its quite possible we are seeing the fruition of a corrupted education system. These people have gone through the indoctrination system of schools, colleges and university, programmed with 'progressive' ideology by the previous generation, and now they will set about doing the same to the 'next' one.

    No, Rideforever. My daughter's a millennial and is clever, industrious & and kind-hearted. All her friends that I've ever met have been lovely, without exception. 

     

    On another site I look on, they're fond of blaming Boomers (my generation) for all the ills of the world.

     

    I'm not in agreement. 

     

     

     

    But on the other hand it is refreshing to hear coments like this, and it is important to not 'tar' the whole millenial generation with the same brush. After all, not all of them will have completely succumbed to their 'progressive programming', but as with anything those who make the most noise attract the most attention.

     

    And with the 'OK boomer' meme, it is another example of 'divide and rule', where the younger generation have been 'trained' to blame the previous generation for all their woes.

     

    This is the problem with 'identity politics'; everything is always 'somebody else's fault', and you end up with a series of 'blame games' with people choosing to become 'victims' rather than taking responsibility for their own actions.

  21. I can't name any names right now, but I have at least seen some football players who have apparently 'shown symptoms' of Covid-19 / 'coronavirus'.

     

    I guess even football players catch 'colds' too.

     

    But certainly I don't recall seeing anything about any professional player having died 'from coronavirus'.

     

    Then again, these people are all fit healthy young men, so I don't find this surprising in the least.

  22. Just to add to my initial post, in regards to those content creators who prefer to use the medium of 'video'...

     

    Unless you only ever 'livestream', you will already have a 'hard-copy' saved and stored locally of any video you wish to upload.

     

    DON'T assume that 'friendly' Youtube will accept and host your content without question, make sure you keep 'offline' copies archived on your own PC or on some external storage device (be it USB stick or hard disk).

     

    Other video-sharing platforms are available, such as BitChute, Daily Motion, Brighteon and others. And I would recommend that you sign up for accounts and upload your videos there too.

     

    If you have your own web-hosting account and you have the luxury of a lot of storage space, you should upload your own videos there too. The big downside to video content is that it can take up a lot of disk storage space and uses a hell of a lot of bandwidth, if multiple users are viewing the same video at once. This is why third-party video streaming platforms such as Youtube, Vimeo etc are so attractive at first, because the temptation to host your videos there and then embed them on your own website (thus saving space and bandwidth) is almost irrestistible.

     

    So don't please ever assume that by uploading your videos to some third-party site such as Youtube they will somehow be 'preserved', always keep your own copies locally.
