You wont believe this.   I just went down Lidls to get some steak.   Security guard calls me out as I walk past & I ignore him. Gets my steak walks to the credit only till

Some images of today's demonstration in London (not taken by me personally).                

Fuck the fuck off.

What a day!

Boris has announced to enslave all Londoners and queue of Xmas shoppers grew so long that I am surprised people didn't start Do the Conga (now that this hideous hairstyle is back in fashion apparently). I guess you can't do that while anti-socially distancing.

 

In the meanwhile, the crash between pigs and protesters continued today.

What we should be asking is what does tier 5 look like?. And will it be imposed on the 1st of January 2021 or the 2nd of January 2021...because it's coming.

Disgusted with the bastards, my bro is undergoing cancer treatment in London, was due to come back to Ireland for Xmas, very hard for my folks. I have been telling my Dad for ages whats really going on, doesnt really want to listen. Hes 88, says he has his own health issues and worries about my bro to contend with. I dont think this will make him listen any more though.

how many kids are you happy to have been fucked up or died and will be fucked up or die from the vaccines you so love?

 

Well @Free_your_mind I take it that you with all your knowledge of science and working with such 'respectable priests' of science, you are not keen on answering that question!

 

So lets try a simple one.

 

What do you think about bacterial pneumonia and it's current case rise?

Tier Three was 'very high' so what's Tier Four? Very, very high?

 

Londoners have been banned from leaving the city and may even face being arrested if they try to travel to other parts of the country for Christmas. The strict new travel rules come into place after midnight as the capital and South East England are plunged into a tier four lockdown. Boris Johnson said people should not enter or leave tier four areas and residents must not stay overnight away from home.

My brother and his girlfriend are moving to Cornwall from London over Christmas, and he's told me that apparently the restrictions don't apply to people who are moving house. Work that one out.

Have you got the link to see this chart in its context? Not disputing influenza cases are significantly down but there's some aspects of the charts that are confusing me. No mention of northern or southern hemisphere which is unusual as most analysis of influenza is broken down into the 2 hemispheres as they are distinct seasons. The starting year doesn't make sense to me either, is it meant to be 2019? If so, why doesn't it say it. I read the chart as week 1 = January. So it follows the expected pattern as influenza would reduce to minimal levels around late March/April (week 12). It's a bit confusing but the original source would be good if you have it.

Absolutely disgusting, like a pack of wolves surrounding prey. I despise the way police are. I often wonder if some are AI because some certainly look alike...very alike.

The public order police in London are regular police officers who volunteered and recommended by a senior officer to wield a big stick. They act like droids.

So the bully boys of the police force. Steroid junkies.  What does TSG stand for? I'm guessing its not The Steroid Gang. :-/

That peroxide blonde hedgehog could announce Tier 1000 and I still won't be staying indoors and muzzling up. The clown front men can take their cult buzz words and toxic hand sanitizer and shove them up their battered chocolate whizz wangs. Anyone fancy a party at mine this Christmas? I'll turn my living room into that scene from 'Trading Places',  hundreds of pissed up strangers and women liberating their chesticles everywhere!

Doxycycline is one antibiotic known for its photo sensitivity. It binds to calcium, magnesium and zinc so should not be taken with those. From what I’ve looked up it is often used in the treatment of malaria with quinine and other bacterial infections. Not to be given to pregnant women and children as prevents bones forming.  Antibiotics can make a virus worse and lower the white cell count. But if the body has pneumonia on top of it then would need antibiotics but generally makes a viral infection worse. Ivermectin is used in the treatment of worms and has nasty side effects too. Might be good for that part of the world for other things but not a virus.  My point is if people are unwell with a bacterial infection  that have been told they’ve got a virus and they take it and it works they’ll think this medication is great for the virus.  Indians are generally very clever though, even the poor ones. They have them doing mathematics at a young age that ours would struggle with. The ones I’ve met have a very holistic approach to medicine. But giving antibiotics out on this scale would lead to the gut microbiome being decimated and norovirus. So it’s not helping the population in my view.

In Canada its colour 'coded'.  GREY is lockdown here.

 

Thanks for that info. I see in Canada you have 5 colour coded zones (tiers)!    In the U.K., during the early part of the Cold War, the Grey Warning was to give an hour's warning of the arrival of radioactive fallout.

it’s just the whole unfairness of it all! How dare they destroy peoples Xmas. We’ve all had a bad enough year as it is and to just take Xmas away well now they can do one. I’m not listening anymore. 

 

My point exactly. Who cares what they say?

It's all an act.....quite literally (The Corona virus act).
