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.

Wow.

 

This is absolutely crazy. I must admit I can't quite work it out. Pressing the killswitch on the UK? Maybe making an example out of you for going with Brexit and not going along with the programme. Have to say I'm at a bit of a loss.

We are being punished for trying to get away from the EU. The unelected cockamemes are threatening us.

They are now saying two months of lockdown as if it hasn't been bad enough so far, followed by food and fuel shortage.

Preppers, are you happy now? Blackout followed by civil unrest, thank goodness we don't have as many guns as in the US.

its a strange situation when the UK gov is enacting bollocks for months and months and then suddenly

40 countries stand together against the UK ... of course the official reason is 'the new strain'

 

but i suspect there is bigger rebellion among whitehall and parliament than we are being led to believe

 

march saw uk change from herd immunity to lockdown after Macron threatened embargo

now we are at the cusp of something worse

What about the illegals crossing the channel in dinghies and what have you? Will they be denied entry? Somehow, I doubt it.

What about the Britons crossing the channel in dinghies or jet-ski's and what have you? Will they be denied exit?

if you are a briton crossing british waters on a jet ski you go to jail

 

if you are an african crossing the channel in a rubber dinghy paid for by george soros you get put up in a three star hotel

France will stop lorry movements from the UK for 48 hours in the wake of fresh concerns over the spread of a new strain of coronavirus in the UK.

 

Freight from France to the UK will be allowed, but there are fears lorry drivers will not travel to avoid being stuck in the UK.

The Port of Dover is closed to traffic leaving the UK "until further notice" due to border restrictions in France, port authorities said in a statement.

"Both accompanied freight and passenger customers are asked not to travel to the port," it said. "We understand that the restrictions will be in place for 48 hours from midnight."

Panic buying starts tomorrow.?

 

I think supermarkets have told the government what to do with left over Christmas food that are currently stacked up on the shelves. If buying frenzy happened, it would make supermarkets happy....or make them break even rather.

The man who gets all the projections wrong and twice broke HIS OWN RULES, WHEN

HE ALLOWED HIS MISTRESS TO VISIT HIM DURING LOCKDOWN.

 

He resigned from Sage rather than being sacked, but is still working for Government. Bastards.

Just watching the downing st briefing/comedy show. Boris has had some bizarre brown dye job slapped on the sides of his thinning barnet. Comforting to know he has time to do that while the country goes to the dogs.

Always amazes me that this so called pandemic is so virulent that we see deaths of biblical proportions in 3rd world countries. Africa and especially the open sewer land of India would be presumably by now desperately in need of humanitarian help for their swamped services and their enormous death tolls.

instead I have to search hard for info on these places to find any worth while information. Doesn’t make sense whatever you believe.

 

It is alleged that one million people were infected and 440,000 lives lost to AIDS in the African region in 2019, while the entire continent of Africa has only seen 46,000 deaths from Covid, but this disease mainly affects 'first world' Commonwealth countries, apparently, like Britain, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa (whose resurgence is also being driven by the 'new strain) although their healthcare systems are more efficient.

I recall the moral of War Of The Worlds which was we "earned" the right to live on the earth through the process of billions of deaths. That is, through fighting bacteria. Something we have to do over the centuries to strengthen immunity. Now, what worried me from the outset was the prevalance of so-called modern scientists who seek to "get one up" on biological evolution. Their message is to fear contact, withdraw, hide behind a mask. I predicted weeks ago such an approach would make matters worse. And sure enough it has. These people so far can point to zero success. Listening to these middle ages scientists people must inevitably end up with reduced immunity. I speak as a hard sciences researcher over some years. The idea you can fight epidemics this way I find demonstrably wrong.

 

Fear mind control reduces your immunity. Knowing the narratives help because you are not fearful.

By washing/sanitising your hands excessively, wearing a mask, staying at home to avoid vitamin D aka Sun....all adds up.

You say it's wrong and that's true but we've been told to do for that very purpose.

 

Talking about being told what to do....

Was in a queue to pay for my shopping. I avoided the self-checkout with a cameras and was queuing for the older cash only checkout without a cam, she was hell bent on ordering where I should go. First she said, "that cashier is free", I didn't fancy walking a short distance so I said I'll wait. Then she said "are you paying by cash or card?" I knew the queue was for cash-only so I said cash. Then when I got to the self-checkout, message displayed that it was for 'card only'. So she asked again if I was paying by card after having said I wanted to pay by cash. I knew what she was trying to do so I smiled at her and proceeded to pay where I intended. Some people's reality is that people can't hear their thoughts...how wrong.
