Italy. Rebelling against the lockdown of resturants after 18.00 by staying open.

 

 

Finalmente gli Italiani hanno ancora le palle. This from my wife from a place about 12km away. Finally, the Italians still have balls.

Similar rumblings where I am in Germany. I noticed there's been a "spike" in deaths in most of the biggest countries yesterday, coinciding with the riots and lockdown calls. I do wonder when these deaths were recorded as previously theyd been collating info from months back

 

Great to hear about your observations.  Germany seems to be going for lockdown light, as the first step.  I agree about what you say about yesterday's spike, it's coincidence and the manipulation of figures.  It has been reported that COVID deaths are up 40% in Europe in the last week.  I expect that next week extensive lockdowns will be in place and coming into force in Europe and else where in the World, this time they will be stricter controls with far more military presence.

 

Germany considers 'lockdown light' to stop virus spread

Updated / Wednesday, 28 Oct 2020 07:05

Chancellor Angela Merkel is expected to push for a "lockdown light" in crisis talks with Germany's regional leaders, as the number of coronavirus cases soars and hospital beds fill up.

The proposed new restrictions would include closing restaurants and bars and putting strict limits on private and public gatherings while keeping schools, daycares and shops open, according to the best-selling Bild daily.

"We need quick and decisive steps to break the new wave of infections," Finance Minister Olaf Scholz said on the eve of the closely watched meeting between Ms Merkel and the premiers of Germany's 16 states.

Under the country's federal system, individual states have the final say on which restrictions to impose, and some less affected regions are likely to bristle at measures that will inflict more economic pain.

Boris Johnson comes under pressure for new lockdown, with Number 10 expecting lower but longer 'peak' in virus deaths.

 

Downing Street is privately working on the assumption that the second wave of coronavirus will be more deadly than the first, with the death toll remaining high throughout the winter....

 

Who is applying this "pressure" for another lockdown, throughout the winter?

 

The people, the health service, politicians or the Rothschilds?

The guy in the red mask above in the Pesaro video is arguing hour that restaurants in Italy have to close now by law. It’s now 6 p.m. Rightly says that only old people in Italy that early. Lived in Italy for 10 years and my Italian friends liked to take the piss out of how early I ate my evening meal at home.

Italy, especially the south is not the rich country it’s alleged to be. Yes there’s wealth. Friend from Napoli spoke to me the other day and said that they have never had anything but now less.

Yeah in Munich where I am now they just ordered bars to close at 9 two days ago. They have all these measures everywhere and then just suddenly throw them out the window for even stricter ones, ludicrous.

 

But of course the lines on the bar charts look big and scary and justify the lunacy

Yep, been to Napoli once, it's an odd place. Luxury and squalor in close proximity. But you have lots of people there with absolutely nothing to lose and everything to gain from not taking this crap anymore.

Second wave lampshade 😂 Fuck me these names just keep getting sillier. I think we should have a circle-jerker lockdown to tackle the spread.

What? We have to wear lampshades to prevent cases?

I'm old. I'm happy to live a sedentary life, therefore “lockdown” hasn't affected my life one iota, apart from the inconvenience of doing basic things, like shopping. I haven't observed their rules anyway and still go wherever I want, unmasked. Although, I know elderly people whose life revolved around various activities, which gave them a motive to get up in the morning and go out. Whether it's bowls or darts, swimming or singing, they have been denied these small pleasures. Not to mention being forcibly parted from family, friends and aquaintances. Many of them now live in fear, because they trust their government and the media.

 

However, when I was young, my life centered around socialising, pubs, clubs, parties, music festivals and dancing. Okay, I was a wastrel, but I cannot imagine having been wrested from this lifestyle and compelled to remain separated from society, transfixed to a computer screen, or phone. When I was even younger, I played hockey, badmington and netball. Children can't even enjoy football now. Youngsters are prevented from attending certain classes, cinema, bowling, gym, rugby, choirs, so many things we took for granted.

 

If this energy is continually stifled and redirected into a 'virtual world' the psychological impact and detrimental effect on health, will have long-term, devastating consequences. I don't have a crystal ball, I'm not “New Age” so I can't predict how this pent-up frustration and resentment will vent itself, but it will create a dysfunctional generation, who no longer know what normal is. So much potential, creativity and ambition is stagnating, with little hope for a better furure. The WEC tells us we will own nothing, but be happy. I beg to differ.

Petition - Establish a peoples scientific and medical panel 

 

Government response

 

https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/549552

 

Quote

 

The Government understands how important it is to have expert scientific advice as it controls COVID-19. The Government Office for Science is headed by the government’s chief scientific adviser, Sir Patrick Vallance who together with Chris Whitty the chief medical officer chairs the meetings of the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies. The Government Office for Science maintains a register of world-renowned scientific experts who have indicated they would be willing to participate in a SAGE meeting. It is essential that the government has instant access to the very best scientific advice from appropriate scientific experts when dealing with its response to the worldwide Covid 19 pandemic. The government considers that the expertise of its chief government scientific adviser together with the expertise of the Government Office for Science are best placed to know who the appropriate experts are. An important feature of the system is that the experts are independent and are free to express his or her opinion without any external influence. To ensure the government has ready access to the advice it needs it is essential that the appropriate expert may provide his or her opinion at short notice; this can only be achieved by reliance upon a detailed knowledge of which experts are appropriate which is located in the Government Chief Scientific Advisor and the Government Office for Science.

The government does not consider that selecting any scientist by popular referenda would ensure that the most appropriate scientific expert was selected and the time that such referenda would take would cause significant delay and hamper the government’s ability to be provided with the necessary scientific advice in the shortest possible time. The Government Office for Science is continually reviewing and updating its list of experts in conjunction with leading UK scientific experts. The government is confident that the list of experts represents a broad range of scientific opinion and is the most suitable method to ensure that the government is provided with world-renowned and world leading scientific advice.

The strategic framework for the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE) is to be found on this link:

Defining SAGE membership is to be found at p18 onwards.

This publicly available publication provides detailed information about SAGE its remit and role.

SAGE is corrupt.

interesting stuff on the daily mail article...

 

"The Government's Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE) has presented the PM with projections which suggest the peak of the second wave will be lower than it was in the first wave. 

However, the peak is expected to last for longer, with high numbers of daily deaths likely to continue for months, resulting in a 'lampshade' second wave."

 

Ah, like seasonal flu then......😴

They clearly don't want it to end, they are changing their baselines constantly and their minds daily about what constitutes a risk or what does not. They are trying their best to make a mountain out of a mole hill.

Yeah or any other endemic virus. They are acting like this is the first time this has happened in history.

 

"Hospitals are full". Yes, a lot like any other winter where old and frail bodies struggle to dea with the cold and lack of sun.
