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).

Lots of people still do care what they say. Lots have been following it to the letter. Some have not spent their last days with loved ones etc. And now it’s too late. So it’s a few less today.

Lot's of people read the Sun and watch the BBC for their info. Lot's of people don't know yet they have the power to be free.

Lot's of people are not even a "people" because they are a person (ie a state owned fiction). To be a people then you must be free in both mind and body. I agree that it's very sad for those trapped in the matrix but you can only control your own path in life whilst spreading love and hope for those caught in the trap.

Some plonker said that in comments on YT yestetday. "I hope you catch the virus and pass it onto a family member and they die". There is your morals right there 😏

Just joined the site. Just a few words. I suspect this Covid crisis already appeared as far back as 2012 in Sri Lanka but has hardly been noticed in the press. Hundreds were taken to hospital with flu symptoms and doctors were baffled. It was finally put down to psychogenic hysteria. This latter term is poorly understood today but the astonishing fact is hysteria can be transmitted throughout communities with corresponding somatic or physical symptoms. Looking back in history, viruses have happened before, against a background of hysteria. Very many people I spoke to who had a Covid diagnosis, also showed clear symptoms of hyperchondria.

We shall see. But I think today could have been a good day for some people to start and say No.  There also is the concept that people may feel alone in what they are thinking and feeling about all this so find it difficult to talk but when they know there is someone else who thinks the same and they’re not alone then that in itself is liberating. In the beginning I felt that way and couldn’t talk about it much or when I did even to people I had known all my life they were still frightened of catching it. I was falling on deaf ears back then but not now.

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.

Im so glad I haven't been to one of these yet as I would be the first one arrested for showing these pigs what I think of them.

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.

You can still travel for medical reasons, work, education, youth services, or to join your support bubble.

 

In other words, if you need to be somewhere, just go!

I read a bit the Salem witch trials years ago and it reminded me of that. Never thought that could happen in the 21st century. It’s been an eye opener.

My god, we just escalated today.  The propaganda being spewed just make me think the lady doth protest too much. 

 

It reeks of desperation!

 

What are they panicking about?  Something is definitely afoot and I think it has them running scared.

 

Oddly enough, for the first time in months, I feel positive.  This huge push is a huge mistake.  Its an overstep.  Hopefully over a cliff.

 

And as for the the term tiers...

Its a play on tears no doubt.  Hoping everyone is as tear full and depressed as fack. The 'lock down' is clearly a nod to asylums and the 'lock' of water to hold the vessel. They dont choose these terms randomly I'm sure.

 

The levels in the risk hierarchy of control measures are, in order of decreasing effectiveness:

 

  • Elimination
  • Substitution
  • Engineering controls
  • Administrative controls
  • Personal protective equipment

Just to add: The 15th century witch mania, to my mind, offers a very clear historical warning. The witch obsession and mass hysteria appears to have been started by the sudden appearance of physical illness amongst populations. Probable poor levels of social education provided fertile ground for paranoia. Witchcraft was cited as the cause. As time passed, those of us who appeared socially remote were accused of witchcraft. All over Europe. Now, leap to 2020. I believe there's a likely probability, anti vaxxers will provide a fresh target. Many of these are merely caring parents who strongly oppose the State dictating their children should be vaccinated (where they fear a risk). Moreover, so far, my current research suggests we can't rule out social restrictions imposed upon those who oppose vaccination.

As to wearing insignia, I'm sorry but this makes me think of Roman Polanski's "Pianist" film where Jewish people were told to wear star of David armbands. Frankly, I'm amazed that the European Social Charter seems to have no weight behind it? 

So far there is no overt obligatory vaccination in the UK but I guess I prefer to prepare for changes.

Coming soon to a town near you...

 

In the early hours of Feb. 7, China’s powerful internet censors experienced an unfamiliar and deeply unsettling sensation. They felt they were losing control.

The news was spreading quickly that Li Wenliang, a doctor who had warned about a strange new viral outbreak only to be threatened by the police and accused of peddling rumors, had died of Covid-19. Grief and fury coursed through social media. To people at home and abroad, Dr. Li’s death showed the terrible cost of the Chinese government’s instinct to suppress inconvenient information.

 

Yet China’s censors decided to double down. Warning of the “unprecedented challenge” Dr. Li’s passing had posed and the “butterfly effect” it may have set off, officials got to work suppressing the inconvenient news and reclaiming the narrative, according to confidential directives sent to local propaganda workers and news outlets.

They ordered news websites not to issue push notifications alerting readers to his death. They told social platforms to gradually remove his name from trending topics pages. And they activated legions of fake online commenters to flood social sites with distracting chatter, stressing the need for discretion: “As commenters fight to guide public opinion, they must conceal their identity, avoid crude patriotism and sarcastic praise, and be sleek and silent in achieving results.”
