Message added by Grumpy Owl,

This topic is for all general discussion regarding the current COVID-19 pandemic. There are of course numerous other related topics for discussing specific aspects of this pandemic in more detail. And there are other parts of this forum for more 'off-topic' discussions.

Global flu rates are down by 98% in 2020.

 

Rather than concluding the obvious that Covid-19 is just flu rebranded (with artificially inflated case numbers), mainstream explanations include suggesting that masks and social distancing have been working well to combat flu. It has also been suggested that Covid-19 has been competing with, and beating flu, in infecting people...

So they've just been renaming Flu deaths as COVID deaths plus some hype?

DVDs should be essential

What else are people going to do during Cockdown?

 

Physical media is slowly being phased out. Movies, TV shows and gaming will mostly be digital subscription services in future like Netflix and Xbox Game Pass. Buying digital media isn't much better either as it's basically just paying for a license to play a file. They can't have the slaves owning stuff that they can barter with.

Have to say feels quite tiring this situation - it's unbelievable that it's still going on.

 

All the information is readily available - yet people still believe in this stuff. It's weird.

 

Even feeling a bit tired of the more critical commentators like talk radio. They make out that they are so clever because they have bothered to read the information. Yet they always, always at the start of their point, make a big point of declaring themselves not a conspiracy theorist and make jokes about conspiracy theorists and sometimes david icke.

 

These people they are trying to separate themselves from are looking at the same information, they have just taken it one step further, sometimes without evidence (which should always be taken with a pinch of salt), but often with evidence. And it's about nigh time these people stopped worrying about what others think of them, by calling them a conspiracy theorist, and really properly hammer and ask the right questions to the politicians which go directly to the hearth of the matter, rather than skirting around the edges so not to offend.

 

Grr.......

 

You think Talk Radio would still be allowed if it was really a threat?

Conspiracy theory or conspiracy theorist is a classic weapon the mainstream have used and a big strawman. So anything that goes against the narrative is a "conspiracy theory". But there is no run down of the differences between a conspiracy theory and just a theory. Meanwhile the whole Rona is a giant conspiracy in the true sense of the word.

 

Absolutely. The word "theory" is very important as it implies there is absolutely no basis in fact for the ideas.

 

I remember reading it first got used widely in media after the JFK shooting, but I'm not sure maybe that's a "conspiracy theory" 😂

Out of likes.   A very good point about owning and barter.  Many people like the convenience of online streaming, but I prefer the independance of physical media, under my control and not being dependent on the internet for all things.    We have seen with HBO Max, Netflix, BBC iplayer, Brit Box, Now TV etc. removing things like comedy programmes and films at a stroke due to the overnight changing of goal posts of political correctness/censorship.  Also with downloads and streaming it ticks the box for complete realtime surveillance and could be used for social credit rating. You watched, for example, Fahrenheit 451, the Francois Truffaut film, that will be a credit down rating.  I suspect there will come a time when PTB will not want people to see how much more freedom there was before the New Normal.  At a flick of a switch, media content they don't like is removed.

Flu at highest levels since winter began as 'Australian flu' hits Wales

The A(H3N2) strain often leads to more hospital admissions and flu-related deaths than in a normal winter

Flu is now circulating in Wales at its highest levels since winter began with so-called "Australian flu" the most common strain of the virus.

 

 

From January this year, strange that this australian flu seems to have just vanished.!

Their new normal cannot function without tech backup.

I think UK government should provide school meals to all children during Coronavirus. They could be free to those in need and others could pay a small contribution up to £2 per person.

Apparently the vouchers can be exchanged for even non-food items.

How can you expect a child to buy sensibly? They'll probably buy crisps coke and sweets.

They should be getting a square meal of meat and 2 veg like Shepherd's Pie with peas and carrots. And rhubarb crumble or fruit tart with custard for pudding like we used to get.

 

The Government needs to stop being so penny-pinching and mean. They know that the poorest need all the help they can get not least because the level of social care is now so decimated that some people can only put frozen pizza on the plate maybe with baked beans. THAT IS NOT A HEALTHY DIET.

School meals are nutritious and because they have bulk buying capability can be produced at an affordable cost. The GOVERNMENT needs to get off it's backside and START GOVERNING.

"Any revolutionary change must be preceded by a passive, affirmative, non-challenging attitude toward change among the mass of our people. They must feel so frustrated, so defeated, so lost, so futureless in the prevailing system that they are willing to let go of the past and chance the future." - Saul Alinsky

 

Sounds relevant.

'Mass unmasked shopping event' held at Weymouth supermarket"

https://www.dorsetecho.co.uk/news/18823476.mass-unmasked-shopping-event-held-weymouth-supermarket/?ref=twtrec

 

She organised a 'mass unmasked shopping event' in Asda in Weymouth on Sunday, October 25. She said between 12 and 15 people showed up for the event.

"What we tried to do with our little shopping trip is show people that it's absolutely fine to go out without wearing a mask," she said.

"Some people don't have enough confidence to do it on their own sometimes because they are bullied and yelled at and ridiculed by other people. What gives them the right to say what we should do and police us? It is like World War Two with people policing each other.

Whichever Government abolished free school meals is an absolute disgrace.

More Thatcherite small-mindedness.

"We reduced your taxes so you can afford to do it yourself."

 

Well it is not that simple. But then if you believe "there is no such thing as society" it probably makes perfect sense.

 

DISGRACEFUL.
