COVID-19: The party was in full swing on the first Saturday after a long lockdown
Sun, 18 April 2021, 3:48 am
The party was in full swing in Soho on the first weekend after a long lockdown.
People danced in the streets, and groups erupted into bursts of spontaneous cheering, as a largely young crowd packed tables, most of which were booked up for both Saturday and Sunday.
Pierre, who was celebrating his 21st birthday with friends, reserved a spot a month ago.
“I am so happy to be able to celebrate with my friends, I feel free,” he said.
Couple Joshua and Sophie were excited to go out for a meal for the first time in more than four months.
“I get to spend time with my babe outside of the house, we get to see the lovely sun shining, we get to see wonderful faces, all these people enjoying their food, their miso soup, the energy is wonderful,” said Joshua.
Those without a booking lingered on the pavement, with the crowd getting dense at times. Restaurateurs say the demand from customers has been unprecedented.
“The phone has not stopped ringing since we put it back on, and for online bookings, the majority of time left was either quite early or quite late,” said Craig Gordon, owner of Home SW15 restaurant in Putney, South London, which is fully booked for the next four weeks.
And it’s not just restaurants, pubs and dance clubs – after months of cutting their own hair with the kitchen scissors, punters flocked to Ismail’s Barbers in Kingston and other cut and blow salons, with queues forming outside.
“It’s been crazy. We opened at midnight on Monday and have been flat out since,” says the manager of the family business Zeshan Ismail. “Because of the whole lockdown and pandemic, I think it’s changed a lot of people, they wanted a whole new lifestyle, new haircut,” Ismail added.
Killjoy scientists, fearing their power is slipping away as the public ignores their self serving scaremongering to act on our own experience and observation,, are still keeping the Project Fear amplifier turned up to eleven by calling for caution and warning people to continue wearing masks, avoiding close contact with family and friends and immersing themselves in disinefectant every five seconds despite it being obvious that none of the ridiculous measures advised to stop the spread of COVID have worked. “The virus and its variants are still circulating,” they mumble threateningly. Well yes, the virus is stil around along with the thousands of others we are all in contact with every day of our lives. And it is still not haming 99.6% of us, with the only people at real risk being the very old and the chronically sick.
“I’m less concerned about reopening outdoor venues and more concerned about indoor venues, such as gyms, hairdressers and shops, where we know transmission does happen particularly given that predominant mode of transmission is aerosol transmission” says clinical epidemiologist Dr Deepti Gurdasani.
But on this bright, sunny spring weeken, the first in almost a year in which we have felt hope of release from health tyranny, the general response to Gurdasani and similar doom and gloom merchants was, “Who give a flying fuck.”
Politicians Are Offering A Trade, Safety For Freedom. But What Are We Really Trading Away? It’s the age old confidence trick, politicians and the elites offter a straight choice between security of freedom and all the risks it entails, then amplify those risks with scaremongering propaganda. In the case of the COVID crisis it has worked so far, with enough people accepting the need for masks, lockdowns and killer vaccines to make The Great Reset seem feasible – but time is running out and people are waking up …
Trump Calls On VP Pence To Grow A Pair And Challenge The Election “Donald Trump has called on his vice-president Mike Pence to intervene to incorrectly hand him a second term.”
An article in today’s Daily Telegraph, ostensibly reporting the efforts of President Trump and his supporters in the Republican Party to challenge the result of November’s election in six states where statistical anomolies provide strong evidence that the vote was somehow interfered with is a triumph for the kind of bad jouralism that fills the pages of UK newspapers. I would not have thought it possible to condense so much misinformation into so few words. Take the statement quoted above…
Time To Rename Democrat Party The Hypocrite Party As I read the news this morning I wanted to puke every time I encountered a (false) assertion that there is no substance to the claims of massive and organised fraud in the US presidential election made by Donald Trump and his supporters. As there is considerable substance to these claims, evidenced by the refusal of the General Services Administration, tasked with managing the transfer of power after election, to sanction funds for Joe Biden and the Democrats on the basis that several states are still counting votes,
The U.S. Presidential Election is NOT Over. Here’s Where Things Stand Right Now As an outsider I have looked on (with wry amusement I must admit,) at the chaotic outcome of the U.S. presidential election and the attempts by various mainstream media organisations, political figures and a host of showbiz celebrities to proclaim Joe (Groper) Biden the winner when in fact votes are still being counted in several key states and enough electoral college delegates to flip the majority to Trump. It looks unlikely to happen but as the official result has not been declared it is spurious for anyone to refer to Biden as the President Elect before he has actually been elected …
Were US 2020 Elections Rigged By Dominion Voting Systems A so-called computer “glitch” in the voting machines flipping votes during the 2020 US Elections has caused a major controversy. The source and ownership of the voting machines used in the elections has become an urgent issue because of real fears that hackers might tamper with the mechanics of the voting system. However, GreatGameIndia has found that the vendors and not hackers maybe behind the rigging.
US News Sites Claimed UK Nov 5th Fireworks Were To Celebrate Biden Presidency Many of us in Britain and other developed nations spent most of last week looking on gobsmacked at the fiasco that was playing out across the pond as a nation whose inhabitants tell us if we are not doing things “The American Way” we are doing them wrongly, completely failed to back up their claims when they showed themselves to be completely incapable of running a fair and orderly democratic election.
As The World Hails President Not-Trump, News Media Forget He Hasn’t Won Yet I read several times today that having been “officially” declared winner of the election and now US President elect, Joe Biden is being called on to heal the nation. It’s bollocks of course, while Joe Biden holds an apparently convincing lead in enough states to give him a majority in the electoral college, that body does not meet to formally elect the president until mid December.
Election Fun And Games In America According to national sources such as The Epoch Times, Trump is currently at 214 electoral votes. If you add Georgia and North Carolina, both of which are obvious Trump wins, far beyond the margin of any Biden recovery, that puts Trump at 245 electoral votes. Trump is currently leading in Pennsylvania, and it looks like a victory that will be aggressively defended by the President and his team.
WISE ADVICE AS AMERICA VOTES As America votes to choose its president for the next four years, the incumbent Donald ‘Pussy grabber’ Trump or challenger Joe ‘Sniffer’ Biden and chaos threatens to follow the election no matter who wins, I’m reminded of these words from Buckminster Fuller: “If you take all the machinery in the world and dump it in the ocean, within months more than half of all humanity will die and within another six months they’d almost all be gone; if you took …
The American Election Is Going To Be Fun. With the national polls showing Sniffer Biden has a double figure lead byt state – by – state polling showing the race neck and neck, the scandal involving Biden’s son Hunter and dodgy deals in China and Ukraine now embracing Pappy Joe’s activities as Obama’s Vice President, the Democrats claiming Trump will not accept defeat …
Evil Labour Government Helped Private Companies Profit From NHS
If you live in Heywood and Middleton and were thinking of voting for the greedy, paedophile loving, elitists’ party, Labour because you have been taken in by the lies peddled at the Labour conference that the wicked Tories plan to privatize the NHS, think again.
The science of saturated fat: A big fat surprise about nutrition?
After years of being told saturated fat is a killer and we should avoid it in favour of Big Food products that are the nearest modern chemistry can get to packaging arterial plaque, yet another scientific meta analysis shows the sat fat scare was based of fraudulent science and there is no evidence your steak is harming you.
CDC Admits as Many as 30 Million Americans Could be at Risk for Cancer Due to Polio Vaccine
Vaccine, that great profit driver for the pharmaceutical corporations, are under the spotlight again. This time it is a link between polio vaccine and cancer which makers and medical science has denied for fifty years that has finally been admitted by the US Centre for Disease control. How ironic they have owned up just weelks after the Obama administration granted Pharma corporations immunity from legal actions.
Statins? Our Welfare Or Corporate Profits, Which Side Is Medical Science On?
The propaganda aimed at convincing us that if we throw enough money at medical science the boffins can provide drugs to prevent death is not about the greatest good of the greatest number, it is about corporate profit and political power. The latest scam is to swing public opinion into accepting mass medication with drugs most do not need. It is just a scam to sell a drug the scientists and manufacturers know is no good.
Another Pompous, Arrogant Bigot Slags Off Homeopathy. What Do They Hope To Gain
The argument about homeopathy is raging again. An article in a leading newspapers says oponents of homeopathic medicine must never tire of explaining that it doesn’t work. But when these science fanboys come up against an articulate defender of homeopathy, they rapidly descent to trying to shout down any opinion that differs from theirs
Swine Flu Scam Exposed: Useless Drugs And Vaccines – Lying Science Whores
The propaganda aimed at convincing us medical science can provide a vaccine to immunise us against death is not about the greatest good of the greatest number, it is about corporate profit and political power. Five years after the even the lies and fraud that created the swine flu ‘pandemic’ of 2009 are exposed. It was just a scam to sell a drug the scientists and manufacturers knew was no good.
