  1. Never-ending crisis has been the health service's branding strategy for as long I can remember, but now everyone will just forget all those 'SEVENTEEN SECONDS TO SAVE OUR NHS' front page news headlines that get wheeled out every year without fail. In December 2008, I almost died because there were no beds available when I went in with a grumbling appendix, which subsequently burst while I was lying on a trolley in a corridor, and this was under a Labour utopia. They eventually did the op and sent me home, despite my visibly worsening condition, and when I called 111 because there was black puss oozing out of the wound, a nurse told me to just go to bed and call my GP in the morning. Thankfully, my mum wasn't having it, and it soon transpired that I'd developed sepsis due to the fact that the doctor 'forgot' to prescribe me antibiotics for the infection that resulted from my appendix being allowed to perforate. I'd been lying there for a week, taking up a bed (if you want to look at it from their perspective), and not one single person had noticed that I wasn't receiving any treatment. Sorry for the off-topic post, but I don't think I've ever written all of that out before. If I hadn't been barely more than a kid at the time, I'd have probably felt differently about suing. In short, the NHS will struggle this winter, like every winter, because it's been in a managed decline for decades and is no longer fit for purpose.
  2. My dad always said he was a piss-poor replacement for Kevin Sheedy.
  3. In the new religion, its usage is the equivalent of depicting Muhammad.
  4. If she isn't being treated for Covid symptoms, and is otherwise well enough to be discharged, what do they have to gain by testing her? They don't just admit everyone who has a positive PCR test, so unless she lives in a care home, there's no case for putting her through the discomfort of being swabbed. Hopefully, someone with a full understanding of the law will be able to offer more specific advice, but it sounds to me as though you're well within your rights to sign her out if they don't plan on providing any further in-patient treatment. You're probably going to have to be very firm, though.
  5. Me too. Counting down the days already.
  6. I remember being on holiday in late 2015, and both these issues were all over BBC World. Eventually, the penny dropped, and I said to my now wife, 'This is just wrestling.' The level of fanatical partisanism that's been engendered in people since then is frightening. Bernays will be looking up at them, smiling.
  7. If it's true that the plan is for China to become the new policeman of the world, perhaps this is being set up as their first foray into military intervention.
  8. I do think that as the plan to persecute people on the basis of their smartphone data comes into effect, it will encourage many to begin limiting their usage. At the moment, all we're really seeing is the convenience side of the tech, but I believe that'll change once Covid gives way to the Green agenda. I'm still in the process of picking up some of the old hardware that smartphones have made largely redundant - digital camera, satnav, MP3 player, etc - as I get used to only carrying a dumb phone with me whenever I go out. The most difficult transition will be living without WhatsApp, where so much of our communication now takes place, since they've very cleverly made it so that you can't access your account via desktop without your smartphone being connected to the internet.
  9. It was only last week that Anna Soubry's idiot daughter was pushing this agenda on Twitter.
  10. I've been a bit shocked at how many younger people have carried on wearing them, but then Covid compliance has become yet another left-wing position, which is all it takes now that people are politicised to the point of fanaticism.
  11. All part of the anarcho-tyranny strategy.
  12. Yeah, the rallies are nothing more than preaching to the converted at this stage, and the marches aren't really doing much to convince those who are plugged into the official narrative. UK Column have done great work with their Doctors for Covid Ethics Symposium, but it'll be in vain if they can't find a way to get this information on to a BBC or Sky News broadcast. The unfortunate reality is that the public won't be moved by the truth until they hear it from a designated expert via a legacy media platform, but one major positive is that we do have the first part ready to go.
  13. I don't know much about the organisers of the protests, but I'm surprised that they've not yet thought to use their impressive attendance numbers to do something along the lines of an Occupy BBC. Nothing will change until the mainstream is forced to give voice to those credentialed people who are offering an alternative expert opinion.
  14. One thing that irks me about Icke's coverage of this farce is that he repeatedly evokes Nazism, when he of all people should understand that this is a deliberate means of conflating oppressive, murderous state-delivered authoritarianism with the ultimate bogeyman that is white supremacy. It really is a most blatant example of Communist sleight of hand.
  15. I'm convinced that a big reason why Britain hasn't seen the same level of enforcement as its Commonwealth counterparts is because it would bring the police into direct conflict with the very sizeable, and also very united, Muslim communities. I wonder if it's a similar situation in Sweden.
