I haven't heard about the trademark before. Details anyone?

 

'Variant of Concern' V=22, C=3 (223/322 skull and crossbones number) BBC = 223.

UKC News "trademarked" that term in jest as the govt started the 'variant' propaganda... 

 

Timestamped... about 30seconds of viewing and you'll 'get it' :-D

Thank you for the links Nats i'll have to see what becomes after we've had a chat.

 

And Mitochondrial Eve  Do my eyes deceive me or is that a trade mark symbol at the end of ''Variants of concern'' ? if it is all i can say is why? why on earth would the government trademark that particular phrase ?

 

All is branding and marketing these days. Mutations and variants of mutations are more of a slick marketing campaign than anything else. Plus there will be an inevitable Vax™ for the Variants of Concern™. 

 

Covid and PR are closely associated, Hill & Knowlton were involved in the US campaign - previously associated with another tall tale, the Kuwaiti babies thrown out of incubators during the Gulf War.

Ah, good old UKC. I probably should have realised it was a joke, but you can never be too sure when you live on a clown planet! 😄

This gets more obvious by the day, what they are planning........

Indian variant could spread 60% faster than the Kent strain, scientist claims after SAGE advisers admitted it 'may be more transmissible' than currently dominant version of the virus

Professor Tom Wenseleers, a biologist and biostatistician at the KU Leuven university in Belgium, said the variant could be 2.6 times more transmissible than the original Wuhan strain.

Looks like our scientists have been given a super jumbo pack of felt pens to play with again.

the fact that these images remain unchallenged by journalists says everything

 

however at least embedded dogmas are being highlighted as part of the world  'fear' philosophy

The trademark symbol behind Variants of Concern I pinched from a UK Column broadcast. I think it was back in February or March that they reported on official government documents where the new variants were being described as 'Variants of Concern' with a capital 'V' and a capital 'C'. In their tongue in cheek way, they said that they were going to place a trademark sign after the new term which appears almost akin to a brand.

 

Edited to add: thanks @skitzorat for finding the video. Just seen your post. :)

I would try and find the broadcast but it would be like trying to find a needle in a haystack.

Thanks, no worries. They mention it in this episode Skitzorat linked to-

This err.....happens to me all the time when I park at a shopping centre. I go the furtherest away from the doors with rows of empty spaces only to return to find some mug right next to me. I call them clingers now, people who won’t break away and park in an unoccupied area, they must cling to another rather than start their own section. I’m always the break away 😀
