We Must Open Our Eyes To Reality.

Supposedly democratic governments around the world have imposed authoritarian regimes on their own people, denying their human rights and their civil liberties. (The situation in Australia and New Zealand is shocking beyond belief.) This has all been done in the name of a virus which has turned out to be similar to an outbreak — albeit a serious one — of the flu.

All of this has been done using the same kind of Project Fear which was used against the British people before the UK’s EU Referendum.

It’s time for the British people to stand up and say “Enough”. If we don’t, we may find it very hard to regain our traditional liberties and to see the restoration of democracy in our country and in other countries around the world.

The cold, hard COVID facts

Latest figures from the Office for National Statistics, w/e 14 Aug 2020, England & Wales

In the last week, you were 67 times more likely to die from something other than COVID

You were even 7 times more likely to die of flu or pneumonia than ‘with’ COVID — in August

Only 139 deaths ‘with COVID’ were recorded in the last week, compared to 9,392 deaths from all causes

Deaths ‘with COVID’ represented less than 1.5% of all deaths in the last reported week

The ONS figures for deaths ‘with COVID’ have been overstated by the authorities, as I reported last week https://medium.com/@graham100200/blind-panic-d251c5113ffa and as the Government now admits. Even without adjusting for these errors by the health establishment, the so-called pandemic is now effectively over in the UK.

“Enough is enough”

It’s time to resume normality and do away with the mass hysteria and rolling doom from the BBC, Sky News and ITN.

Case numbers are almost irrelevant given that testing has increased dramatically, together with the fact that most people are asymptomatic or only mildly inconvenienced even if they have the virus. The ‘R’ number is at best a guess by the ‘experts’.

It is hospitalisations and deaths which should determine policy, and these are now so small as to be insignificant from a policy-making perspective.

The supposed ‘science’ which has led to the extreme Coronavirus measures has bordered on the ridiculous. There have been continuous revisions, corrections, and about-turns, from the now-discredited ‘half-a-million deaths’ mathematical modelling of Professor Ferguson and friends which started the lockdown, to the necessity of wearing face masks, to the grossly exaggerated morbidity rate for the virus. Few of these were reported properly, objectively, and critically in the mainstream media. Almost every facet of the measurable aspects of this virus has been changed as the weeks have gone by.

The examples of crass stupidity and illogicality in dealing with Coronavirus are so prevalent it is not worth listing them all. All anyone — including Boris Johnson — has to do is look at charts, using the official figures from the ONS. Who in their right mind would insist on the continued destruction of our economy and our civil liberties, based on such fundamental evidence to the contrary?

The country now has to try to recover from this fiasco — something that will take decades. Even more importantly it is essential that GPs go back to their surgeries and that our empty hospitals now fill up with the massive backlog of patients who need urgent assessment and treatment for other life-threatening illnesses such as cancer, heart disease, and many other serious conditions.

The latest report for the Government showed that the reaction to the Coronavirus will cause far more deaths than the virus itself. It gives me no pleasure to say that I warned about this months ago.

Deaths ‘with COVID’ are now falling close to 1% of deaths from all causes
Why are we still devastating our economy and society, and risking the lives of other sick people?

What is life without a little controversy in it? Quite boring and sterile would be my answer.
