When news leaked out of taxpayer funded British broadcaster The BBC that certain patriotic anthems, including Rule Britannia and Land of Hope and Glory, which are traditionally performed on the last night of BBC Proms concert season, may be axed from this year’s program.
The Proms or Promenade concerts to use the formal name are a season of musical performances given every summer in London’s Albert Hall, culminating with the tumuluous and tongue in cheek Last Night, a concert that in contrast with much of the highbrow stuff performed throughout the season, is a light hearted celebration of music and its ability to break down barriers and bring people together. It is as much a fancy dress party for 5000 people, who in disparate small groups are there to enjoy themselves. As well as some lighter classical pieces the music performed inclusdes bawdy folk songs, jaunty sea shanties and a chance for the audience to sing along with patriotic songs of the past. This audience participation is one of the most popular features of the concert and closes the season with the songs Rule Britannia, Land Of Hope And Glory, Jerusalem and God Save The Queen.
And nobody takes it seriously. I regularly watch the televised performance and in any year, as the audience wave national flags and sing Rule Britannia, a song about the British Navy’s dominance of international trade routes, people wave national flags, not just The Union Flag, the Cross of St. George, The Scottish Saltire or the Red Dragon of Wales, but The Stars and Stripes, Canada’s Maple Leaf, the tricolours of France, Germany and Italy, Australian Flags, the flags of India, Pakistan, Japan and other Asian nations, African national flags and others. And when the medlody shifts to the rousing Land of Hope and Glory those flags still wave. Land of Hope and Glory is usually interpreted as the ultimate British patriot song but maybe those people singing their hearts out and waving their own national flags are interpreting it a little differently, as I always have:
Land of Hope and Glory, mother of the free, How shall we extol thee, who are born of thee. Wider still and wider, let thy bounds be set, God who made the mighty make thee mightier yet.
Well we all hope the land we call our home will be a symbolic parent of free people, and there is nothing offensive about asking how shall we praise this land. By war and conquest, or by spreading the ideals oif tolerance and openmindedness to promote peacefuk coexistence? Wider still and wider let thy bounds be set? Surely that can only be intended to glorify imperialism, you might suggest. But it can, can it not, be taken as a reference toour cultural horizons. Let’s learn from the whole world and encourage them to learn from us. And the last line? Well I don’t do God, but though this has been interpreted as a reference to military and economic might, it could also be taken as a reference to cultural strength, make us a stronger community so that we lose our natural fear of ‘otherness’ and preserve our own culture and values while respecting other, but not surrendering to the unreasonable demands of extremists.
It only takes a little creative thinking to render that short lyric inclusive and likely only to offend those who are determined to be offended on behald of the majority who simply do not care.
The most genuinely troubling of the patriotic songs that, though patriotism has been unfashionable for at least fifty years, have become an integral part of each year’s Promenade Concerts’ grand finale, Rule Britannia(sic) is the most overtly patriotic of the Last Night favourites though the phrase ‘Britons never ,never, never shall be slaves does not relate in any way to the Atlantic slave trade even though the song originates from the decades at which that trade was at its height. Correctly titled Rule, Britannia! the comma is all important especially now as linguistics professors in the more ‘woke’ university faculties are claiming grammar and punctuation are racist and oppressive. Composed by Thomas Arne in 1744 for a musical pageant on the reign of King Alfred, often mistakenly credited with uniting the various kingdoms of England under a single ruler, but still one of our greatest historical figures because he fought off who fought off the Viking threat by building up the English navy and extended the influence of Christianity to the pagan kingdoms of The Danelaw (the northern part of England ruled by Scandinavian Kings.
The belligerent lyrics touched a nerve because they chimed with the aspirations of mid-18th-century Britain, which was poised to become a mercantile empire based on sea power and was also constantly at loggerheads with France. This is where thone commas in the original title and fist line become important: “Rule, Britannia! Britannia, rule the waves!” – meaning, if you don’t rule the waves, and fast, France will crush you.
This year however the jovial mood of the Last Night of the Proms may be spoiled by interference from the appallingly self righteous do – gooderfuckers of the far left, many of whom work for the BBC. the Times on Sunday has reported these moralistic pokenoses are mounting a campaign to have songs like Rule Britannia, Land of Hope and Glory and possibly the Scottish Hogmanay song Auld Lang Syne banned on the grounds that they are offensive (though who Auld Lang Syne could possibly offend is hard to grasp, apart from the self – elected internet spelling police, Americans who, unable to tolerate English (i.e. correct) spellings of words like colour and favourite, will cetainly have a massive problem with medieval Scots.
Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and never brought to mind?
Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and old lang syne?
For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we’ll take a cup of kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.
And at midnight, as one year passes and another is born, after a few celebratory drinks, it makes perfect sense.
The official excuse for dropping this feature is that COVID 19, Social distanccing and blah blah means there will be no audience to sing along, but when sports events have been played out in empty stadia, the BBC had no problem about dubbing the soundtrack with audience noise from past events.
Part of the reasoning is that coronavirus restrictions significantly limit the size of the orchestra and the number chorus singers that will be able to safely gather at the Royal Albert Hall, the newspaper explained.
But there is also a feeling among some of the organizers that songs from the glory days of the British Empire would be inappropriate in a year when Black Lives Matter protests are rocking nations on both sides of the Atlantic. In particular, Dalia Stasevska, the principal guest-conductor from Finland, is reportedly a strong supporter of the BLM cause, who is “keen to modernise the evening’s repertoire”.
WTF right has a Black Lives Matter supporter to interfere in a British cultural event. This person should be told to stick to the job they have been hired for. Start bringing politics, particularly the toxic politics of the far left into The Proms and in a few years there will be no proms. And it will not be COVID – 19 keeping paying punters away but the sheer boredom of a program selected for political correctness rather than musical excellence.
Bakery Sued For Refusing to Produce Pro-Gay Marriage Cake
A Belfast bakery has been threatened with legal action after its owners refused to accept an order for a cake with the words “support gay marriage” on it. Ashers Baking Company staff at first accepted the order but it was later reviewed by the owners who deemed the cake against their Christian beliefs.

Homosexuality: As a liberal society we have a duty to tolderate, not celebrate
Even though the government has accepted a very limited definition of same sex marriage the gay lobby keeps raving on about the greates non issue of all time. But in a free society should we be subjected to bullying if we do not show enough enthusiasm for homosexual and lesbian relationships? When did indifference become a hate crime?
Primary School Teacher Forced Out For Teaching It’s OK To Be Gay
The thought police are well and truly embedded in the education system, the legal system, government and public services, everywhere you look in fact. Their dovtrines of multiculturalism and diversity and they sacred cows of human rights ad equality are suppressing freedom of speech and thought. But what do the politically correct thought police do when two of their sacred cows come into conflict …
These stupid laws insult the public and threaten free speech
When the law forbids us to insult or offend somebody, to insult or offend a religion, race, skin colour or sexual preference, free speech and other important democratic rights are under threat. When the law then goes on to say that anyone accused of these offences has no right to defend themselves and the word of the accuser is sufficient evidence on which to obtain a conviction then we have abandoned justice and are ruled by fascists.

There was such a kerfuffle stink about school exam grades earlier this week, that someone seems to have thought it a good day to bury the further bad news, and announce a whole series of quarantines to add to our sense of imprisonment.
Apparently the determining threshold, revealed out of the blue along with the French quarantine, is an infection rate of 20 per hundred thousand. It might have been nice to have been told that before. Given that the infection rate in some areas of the UK is higher, shouldn’t we be quarantining those who have been there when they move around the country too?
While mainstream media were having fits about A-level grades, someone obviously thought it a good day to bury bad news, and quietly announced a whole series of unnecessary and irrational extensions to quarantines as if we needed to be reminded we are to add all effectively still under curfew if not actual house arrest.
Apparently the determining threshold for imposting travel restrictions, revealed out of the blue along with the French quarantine, is an infection rate of 20 per hundred thousand or 0.002 per cent. Any competent statistician or mathematician would tell you that in terms of human population is not statistically significant, certainly it is not worth further trashing the economy for. Given that the infection rate in some areas of the UK is higherthan that threshold, we should, should we not, we be quarantining those who have been there when they move around the country too?
Local lockdown rules are in many cases equally crazy. If you live in Bradford, for instance, you are not allowed to have people round to your home, or visit people outside the area at their homes, but seemingly you are allowed to go to the pub outside the affected area and socialise freely within distancing rules. You can also go the pub within your area provided you don’t interact with those outside your bubble.
In Lancashire you are not allowed to visit people in their gardens (and police helicopter patrols are out spotting illegal barbecues and paddling pool parties so the local plod can be directed to your house to impose an instant fine of £100.
Also you may not socialise with people you do not live with in other indoor public venues – such as pubs, restaurants, cafes, shops, places of worship, community centres, leisure and entertainment venues, or visitor attractions. You may attend these venues with people you live with (or are in a support bubble with), but should avoid interaction with individuals or groups from other households.
If you run such a business or organise events on their premises, you should take steps to ensure people do not interact with people they do not live with, in line with COVID-19 secure guidance
To say none of this makes any sense is understatement, in reality it is barking mad.
The elected government have without doubt been let down by their officials and advisers, and the policies constructed have been based on the sectional interests of the civil service and academic community , but the buck stops at the top: the whole craptangle was easily foreseeable (and was forseen in writing by many of us who post content in online forums,) and ultimately responsibility rest on Boris and the Cabinet.
While it’s unarguable that the government’s handling of the faux -crisis has been hopeless I think we should stop piling all the blame on Boris and his Conservative cohorts. In the modern world any government is only as good as the advice it is given by civil serice and academic advisers. And as most of us are now aware both these sources of advice have proved to be CHIMPS (Completely Hopeless In Most Practical Situations.)
This is true of the majority of governments in the developed world, not just ours.
The lockdown, which has proved so catastrophic socially and economically, was advised on the basis of evidence from mathematical models of the pandemic, computer models programmed by incompetent amateurs.
Mandatory mask wearing is, according to many independent scientific studies, of dubious effectiveness and ignores the known facts that a) if you don’t have COVID 19 you can’t infect anybody else and b) there is close to zero chance of being infected while we are outdoors.
The inventor of the PCR test which governments have used to test for the virus, before he died (not from Coronavirus) earlier this year revealed it was not designed to test for specific pathogens and is thus useless. This explains why testing has produced so many false results.
The risible failure of track and trace systems which relied on a) everybody having a smatphone and b) all those smartphone owners downloading an app needs no further explanation.But none of these failings were originally the brainchild of politicians, though the politicians showed themselves to be gullible fools for listening to and acting on such obviously flawed advice, it is the people who gave that advice whose careers should be on the line first.
For every 3 COVID19 deaths lockdown may have caused 2 more – Official The 4 month lockdown imposed by government on the advice of “scientists” while realists in the medical profession said poses almost zero risk to healthy people under the age of seventy, may have indirectly caused 16,000 excess deaths in two months, according to government analysts. This is what those medical realists, predicted at the outset.
Loughborough, Sheffield Universities shows ‘COVID deaths’ fraud A new study by academics at the School of Business and Economics and The University of Sheffield, and economic consultants at Economic Insight, seeks to provide a more statistically robust approach to the question: “How many deaths in England and Wales are due to COVID-19?”. Currently COVID-associated deaths or excess deaths are … Continue reading
The scam goes on with the latest move to keep the coronavirus fear and panic conspiracy afloat being a rumour that the government will ask over 50s in Britain to”shield” (i.e. place themselves under house arrest,) throughout the winter. But it may be the tipping point, public rteaction has been totally negative.
Coronavirus Pandemic: The Scam Continues Just when we thought it was safe to go out in the fresh air …… the government and their “scientific advisers have thought of a way to extend the scam. It seems that as we have been saying since March, trashing the economy and destroying the fabric of society is less impoortant to them than advancing their plan for a global, authoritarian government …Continue reading
As the Coronavirus rolls on with every trumpeted breakthrough fizzling out into a great big nothing, political leaders and media ‘influencers’ keep telling us we must follow the science. Yet with so much contradictory and conflicting evidence, perhaps it’s time we learned that “following the science” is the worst thing we can do? The Daily Stirrer has been telling you since the start of the farrago that scientist is a synonym of wanker,
Covid 19: Statistics, Lies and the Corruption Of Science.As the COVID — 19 pandemic continues to dominate the news and defy the efforts of researchers to understand its many mysteries, including its origins and why it affects people who contract the virus in wildly different ways, one thing we have learned for certain so far is the extent to which the Pharmaceuticals manufacturers cartel (colloquially Big Pharma,) exercise a pernicious influence over medical research and healthcare.
COVID19 PCR Tests are Scientifically MeaninglessPoliticians and “experts” scream and shout about testing and isolation being the way to halt the COVID 19 pandemic to a halt, but everything else they hsve told us about the disease has been absolute bollocks, why should this be any different?
Well surprise, surprise, it isn’t any different. The idea that testing everybody ten times a day (OK I might be exaggerating for effect,) will do any good is just another diversionary tactic …
Critics Batter The Fake Science Used To Justify The Lockdown As Boris Waffles Regular readers may recall this blog was among the first to expose the fact that the pandemic model predicting 500,000 COVID – 19 deaths if the entire nation was not placed under indefinite house arrest was based on a deeply flawed mathematical model of the pandemic built by a “scientist” at Imperial College, London, a college heavily reliant on funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation. You may also recall we have reported on the determination of psychopathic megalomaniac Gates to insert himself into this phoney crisis

Oxford Covid Vaccine Fails But Big Pharma Will Sell It Anyway Many highly – placed members of the lockdown forever cult, Bill Gates among them, have been spreading the idea that lockdown must continue until a vaccine for COVID – 19 is available because only a vaccine can save us.

Scientist who convinced Boris lockdown was the only way to beat coronavirus criticised many times for flawed research
The scientist whose mathematical models of how the coronavirus would spread in the UK and the wildly exaggerated estimates of how many deaths might result from the epidemic reportedly led to the decision to implement a countrywide lockdown and trash the economy has been criticised in the past for flawed research.
Has The World Health Organisation Been Helping Chinese Coronavirus Cover Up Many people suspected as far back as January, when stories about an epidemic of a new virus began to leak out of China that we were not and would not be told the whole story. The virus infecting thousands of Chinese in the large inland city of Wuhan was, we learned, a strain of corona virus, the genre that infects us with the common cold, influenza and a host of other infections of varying seriousness.
Coronavirus deaths: Are The Authorities Deceiving Us?Yesterday we reported that a Canadian outfit had carried out an analysis of China’s response to Coronavirus and concluded that while politicians and academics (aka “scientists” or “experts”) are heaping praise on the way the regime in Beijing has contained and controlled its epidemic, the Chinese have actually been lying, the epidemc is still raging and numbers of infections and deaths from COVID – 19 are far higher than reported,

Germany’s Official State TV Channel Cheers Coronavirus For Killing Old People
Trawling around the weirder fringes of the web, as we bloggers and cyberjournalists are sometimes obliged to if we want to bring you the news the mainstream will not report, one occasionally comes across something important but disturbing – like being brought face – to – face with how sick and warped the far left ecopsychos really are.

Record 235 Migrants Cross Channel In One Day: Report
Home Secretary Priti Patel reportedly backs suggestions to send in the Royal Navy amid the growing migrant crisis in the English Channel, after a record 235 illegal aliens landed on Thursday.
This week, the Union for Borders, Immigration, and Customs (ISU) had said that the military needed to be drafted in to support dealing with the crisis — particularly due to the threat of violence from migrants, and to force returns to France at sea.
More than double the number of migrants have landed in the first eight months of 2020 (nearly 3,950) than the whole of 2019 (1,850). Migration Watch UK has warned that more than 7,500 could land by Christmas.
After yet another new record for the highest number of migrant landings in a single day, Patel had reportedly told Home Office staff to draw up plans for the Royal Navy to turn back boats the boats to France. The minister has reportedly been given legal advice that doing so is permissible under maritime law.
A Home Office source told the Daily Mail on Thursday: “The final straw was this record number, which led the Home Secretary to demand this new initiative. The real solution must come from the French – we want the French to take them back.”
In May, Nigel Farage reported that he saw French navy vessels escorting migrant boats into British territorial waters, the mainstream media finally confirming the observations in August.
Patel’s predecessor as Home Secretary, Sajid Javid, declared the Channel crossings a “major incident” as long ago as December 2018 … Continue reading >>>

In the case of Europe’s immigration crisis, much of the fear and loathing is being caused by Muslim males.

GermanSocialist Idiot Minister: Criticism Of Migrant Rapes Are As Bad As Rapists Themselves
Public hostility to Muslim migrants who raped and sexually assautled German women and attacked German nationals on New Year’s Eve increased sharply after a socialist regional politician in the North Rhine – Westphalia federal state appeared to blame Germans for the orgies of violence that took place in Cologne and other German cities as people celebrated the New Year.
As of today, fellow citizens of England, we are at war.
Today, in edging back towards full lockdown, our government declared war on us. There is no reason to reimpose lockdown measures, we now know that COVID – 19 seriously affects very few people, that mask wearing neither protects us from infection, not prevents us infecting others, that the death rate from all causes is below the average for this time of year, and that the hospitals are half empty.
So the only reason for today’s actions can only be that, fearing the fear and panic generated by the coronavirus hoax, which has gripped the nation since March, was wearing off, a new scare had to be invented to enable The Deep State to maintain its hold over us.
There is nothing new in these tactics, read this statement from the mid 19th century and think how easily it could abbly right now, in the 21st century.
“This struggle may be a moral one, or it may be a physical one, and it may be both moral and physical, but it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will. Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them, and these will continue till they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both.”
An impromptu block party in Brixton, South London, descended into anarchy, after police called to the scene were assaulted and chased away. Twenty-two officers were injured in the resulting mayhem.
Cops were pelted with bottles and other projectiles on arrival at the scene near the Angell Town housing project in Brixton.
Footage posted to social media shows a large column of law enforcement officers facing off with the crowd as they attempt to pull back.
In one video, a shirtless man can be seen standing on top of a police car as he smashes the vehicle’s windshield with a broken-off table leg. A police van was also chased and attacked by the mob.
The Metropolitan Police Service said it had been called to the area due to noise and public safety complaints, but that the crowd had refused to cooperate. Elements eventually became “hostile” towards officers, it explained. … Continue reading >>>
UK police officers have been instructed about the “engaging effect” of taking a knee before protesters, and alerted about the drawbacks if they refuse to do so, triggering shocked and confused reaction from the British public.
The advice on kneeling was part of a recent operational briefing the officers received in the Hertfordshire Constabulary in southern England. The memo, cited by the Mail on Sunday, noted that although the gesture is “optional,” those who refuse to bend the knee “may become the focus of the protesters attention.” At the same time, kneeling “has a very positive and engaging effect,” and draws “a positive reaction on the protest groups.” … Continue reading >>>
The hugely unpopular NHS contact-tracing app proposal, which as libertarians point out will giver the government the power to track all our movements, will be a “key part” of the U.K. government’s Covid-19 containment policy for the foreseeable future, a spokesman for the Prime Minister’s office has confirmed.
The app, designed ostensibly to notify smartphone users if they came into close contact with someone who had tested positive for the coronavirus, could be available within a few weeks, but privacy campaigners warn that the app, which will give the government and its agencies, including the police who have shown their willingness to abuse their new powers, the ability to record and store the complete movements of individuals and details of those with whom they were in contact.
If the plan goes through unchallenged, and Boris Jognson’s recent conversion to the kind of authoritarian approach wannabe Galactic Emperor Bill Gates has lobbied for suggests it will, the public will be “coerced” into sharing personal data about their movements, personal liberty activists fear.
This blog has warned from the outset that the whole COVID – 19 coronavirus scare was being used by globalists to effect a huge power grab and the abolition of the rights and liberties we in the democratic nations have come to take for granted.
Johnson’s spokesman added that the priority while waiting for the app to be ready is ensuring continued social distancing in order to fullfil the “five tests” to be met before lockdown measures can be eased. Those tests include falling deaths and falling infection rates. This is ridiculous and confirms our suspicions as empirical evidence shows distancing does not work and lockdown, apart from trashing the economy, has failed to curtail the spread of the disease. Nations like Sweden and South Korea which avoided a lockdown, arguing rationally that the economic damage would cause more deaths in the long term than the virus is ever likely to, have experienced no higher infection rate or deathg rate than normal.
Today’s statement from Downing Street follows a heated exchange in the House of Commons on Tuesday 28 April over proposed legislation setting out the legal basis for processing personal data by the app. Shadow deputy leader of the House, Afzal Khan, said that while the app has an “important role to play,” legislation should ensure that it stores data in a decentralized manner. This is nonsense as data stored in a decentralised way, i.e. a distributed database, can still be pulled together almost instantly on entry of certain keywords.
Responding to Khan, Solicitor General Michael Ellis QC said the app will be “voluntary participation only” and there will be “no private identifiable information on it.” Furthermore, the whole process will be “data protection compliant and there will be an ethical advisory board monitoring it,” he said.
If you believe that look out of the window quickly, you might see several pigs flying over your home.
Internet law professor Lilian Edwards took a more cautionary line, telling MPs, that there was a “precedent of other pandemics leading to a mass land grab in extensive state surveillance.” She is probably referring to the pandemics of damp squibs over the past three decades, including SARS, MERS, Swine Flu, Bird Flu and Ebola. The first four of those were so ludicrously hyped they caused the World Health Organisation to change the edfinition of ‘pandemic’ from hundreds of millions of people all around the world will be infected and millions will die, to ‘a few people here and there will feel a bit poorly.‘ Ebola was different, it killed thousands in west Africa in 2014 / 15 but despite a massive campaign to spread fear and panic in the rest of the world the diseasedid not significantly break out of Africa.
Historically, virus epidemics to tend to burn out after a few months. Why this is so has never been understood.
COVID – 19 has turned into a real pandemic, but there are several aspects of how it is thought to have originated, the way it predominantly attacks the old and those with underlying health problems and the fact that all the world’s leading economies were in deficit because of rising welfare bills, that have led conspiracy theorists to speculate that the timing is suspiciously convenient. And the authoritarian measures adopted by governments, vesting far more powers in the state, tend to fuel those suspicions.
Several EU countries have been developing contact-tracing apps in parallel with the UK, a statement from the EU Commission in Brussels earlier this month stated that it wanted EU members to take a “common approach” to the use of digital technologies and data.
The ‘common approach’ recommendation from Brussels has triggered a debate that is still raging in Europe over whether to use centralized or decentralized solutions for the apps. While a decentralized approach would see data stored on the user’s own phone, a centralized infrastructure would see data sent to a central database run by public authorities, which civil liberties groups say risks evolving into state surveillance.
The German government plans to adopt a decentralized approach it was announced last week. This is a U-turn on the previous plan which involved full support of the Pan-European Privacy-Preserving Proximity Tracing (Pepp-PT) protocol developed by European Union agencies. Berlin will now support decentralized solutions proposed by Apple and Google instead, which leaves the gathered data on devices controlled by US tech corporations. This approach presents even greater problems for personal liberty activists as on user privacy and data protection the track record of both these predatory corporations is on a par with that of a fox in a chicken coop.
Meanwhile the UK leans toward a centralized model and it’s been reported that experts from GCHQs National Cyber Security Centre, an agency which has been spying on us through our web use, emails, molbile phone calls and texts for over two decades, are advising on the project. So the unalienable human right to privacy is right out the window then.
In France the government of beleagured president Emmanuel Macron has also been pushing a centralized app solution, prompting hundreds of the country’s computer security experts to sign an open letter asking the government to reconsider due to concerns around privacy and individual freedoms.
Johnson’s spokesman said the government would set out more details regarding the British app as soon as it could. Our advice, Just Say No, Do you really need an app that allows a government no sane person would trust, to track their every movement and who they came into contact with.
Is This The Smoking Gun That Proves China Has Lied About The Coronavirus Outbreak
With the number of confirmed cases of, and deaths from coronavirus in Italy, a nation of 63 million people having now surpassed the number of infections officially admitted by the government of China, a nation of 1.4 billion and the nation where the news strain of coronavirus, COVID – 19 was first observed, it was obvious to the realists among us that the Chinese government’s claims to have contained the virus were deeply suspect and further claims that the outbreak were under control were as reliable as reported sightings of The Tooth Fairy …
As We Predicted The Coronavirus bill Is The Biggest Assault On Freedom Since World War 2
Things have gone so far beyond what can be considered a rational response to an outbreak of a highly contagious but for most people relatively minor illness that I am starting to believe even the conspiracy theories I know I made up myself. Along with my fellow Boggart Bloggers I predicted weeks ago the current outbreak of the so – called coronavirus would see a massive hyping of the threat level leading up to an assault on our freedoms. And that is exactly what we have seen happening over the past week.
The scientist whose mathematical models of how the coronavirus would spread in the UK and the wildly exaggerated estimates of how many deaths might result from the epidemic reportedly led to the decision to implement a countrywide lockdown and trash the economy has been criticized in the past for flawed research.
An article published in Technocracy last month, The Common Roots Of Climate Change And COVID-19 Hysteria exposed the dishonest – scaremongering tactics of global warming alarmists as they seized the opportunity provided by COVID-19 to trigger the largest global economic crisis in history.
Warmageddonists have always dreamed of killing the “brown economy” and replacing it with a green economy, a system they call Sustainable Development, which would return us to low tech industry and peasant farming methods hardly likely to sustain the 7.7 billion humans that populate the planet now. It is less than 30 days since Imperial College London released a data model created by a “scientist” with a 100% record of being totally wrong in his predictions of catastrophe during outbreaks of disease. And yet, even though his “scientific conclusions” aka guesses and assumptions have steered governments towards hugely damaging policy decisions. Professor Ferguson’s model predicted 500,000 deaths in the UK and 1.2 million in the U.S.A if those nations were not put into lockdown, a move that was certain to cause immeasurable economic damage and social disorder in those countries. The whole narrative spun by government propagandists based on the predictions of those flawed models is now falling apart, but the damage has been done and cannot be reversed.
The World Health Organization is a full-fledged agency of the United Nations, which has driven the above mentioned climate change scare, the objective of which was to pave the way for a world government and which has recently lost credibility to the extent that the propagandists had to deploy a weird looking, retarded child to broadcast their lies and scaremongering in the hope that nobody would attack such a pitiable figure. The ploy failed, so when the government of China reported an outbreak of a news strain of the SARS – coronavirus it was seized on as an opportunity to scare the people and nations of the world into compliance with an agenda that would result in the abolition of democracy and individual freedom. The WHO’s estimated mortality rate for COVID – 19, as gleefully reported by mainstream media is 20-30 times higher than the actual death rate being reported by Stanford University of between 0.1 and 0.2 percent.
The number of actual deaths of COVID-19, as opposed to people who died of something else while carrying the infection having contracted it in hospital when already terminally ill, and more recently what is vaguely reported as “coronaviris – related deaths,would not likely be changed if no panic was ever triggered by means of false news and over – dramatic actions to “stop the virus” in the first place. If governments had behaved rationally instead of listening to “scientists” who rely on mathematical models rather that looking at the real world, perhaps it would only have been a nastier-than-usual flu season. However, the Great Panic of 2020 has caused innumerable non coronavirus-related deaths and plunged the global economic system into a downward spiral from which it will take years to recover. Millions are now out of work. Tens of thousands of businesses closed by order of “scientists” will never reopen. People in need of health care are reluctant to present themselves to a hospital for fear of picking up the virus – hospitals are the best place to catch it actually
The reality of this crisis is that a few self – interested Technocrats who knew exactly what the consequenses of metaphorically yelling “FIRE!” in a crowded theater would be and, although to an unbiased observer give every appearance of playing out a scripted scene in a far bigger production will never be held accountable for their despicable and fraudulent decieving of society. Concerned citizens should stop obsessing over who made COVID-19 and the street-corner where it first appeared, and instead focus on the real instigators and their real motivations, the people who have been planning for and working towards an authoritarian world government for years.
Starting today with a post from the USA, because it backs up our suspicions that the sudden upsurge in alleged “Coronaviris deaths” reported inthe latest statistics looks very suspecious. You’d expect a steady climb in deaths from COVID – 19 as numbers of confirmed infections increased, not a sudden leap several weeks into the pandemic. Hmmmm – over to the conspiracy theorists:
The Real COVID-19 Mortality Rate Is 25-60x Less Than Governments, Media Claim
SouthFront offers a scientific-based survey providing an in-depth look at the real death toll statistics and the spread of SARS-COV-2.
1. The research issued by the Bonn University Hospital
The research issued by the Bonn University Hospital and made by the group of scientists including Prof. Dr. Hendrik Streeck (Institute of Virology), Prof. Dr. Gunther Hartmann (Institute for Clinical Chemistry and Clinical Pharmacology, Spokesman for the Cluster of Excellence ImmunoSensation2), Prof. Dr. Martin Exner (Institute for Hygiene and Public Health), Prof. Dr. Matthias Schmid (Institute for Medical Biometry, Computer Science and Epidemiology).
In the framework of the research, all residents of Germany’s Gangelt were tested on the existence of SARS-CoV-2 infection and antibodies to SARS-CoV-2.
Gangelt is one of the most COVID-19-affected German municipalities. It is believed that the outbreak was caused by the carnival held on February 15, 2020. After the event, several people tested positive for SARS-CoV-2.
Preliminary result: the existing immunity was determined at about 14% (IgG against SARS-CoV2, method specificity>, 99%). About 2% of people had current SARS-CoV-2 infection detected by the method of polymerase chain reaction (PCR). The overal infection rate (the presence of a current infection or antibody in the body) was about 15%. The mortality (mortality rate), based on the total number of infected people in the Gangelt community, is approximately 0.37% based on the preliminary data of this study. The mortality rate based on the total population in the Gangelt is currently 0.06%.
2. A new Epidemiological bulletin from German Robert Koch Institute
“in general, it is true that not all infected people have symptoms, not all who has symptoms go to a doctor’s office, not all who go to the doctor are tested and not all ..who test positive are recorded in a survey system. In addition, a certain amount of time passes between all these individual steps, so that no data collection system, however good, can make a statement about the current infection process without additional assumptions and calculations.”
UK healthcare workers were given flawed Covid-19 tests, a government minister has admitted, meaning frontline staff may have returned to work carrying the deadly virus.
Junior health minister Helen Whately told Sky News on Wednesday that NHS staff have been informed that their coronavirus tests were “not up to scratch” and results may not be accurate. They have now been offered a new test.
At least 100 frontline health workers have died from Covid-19, according to the most recent figures. Defending the serious error, Whately claimed it was all part of a “normal process when you are using a test for an illness.”
My understanding from the clinical advisers is some of the early tests were evaluated and the evaluation was actually they weren’t effective enough.

Coronavirus Lockdown and What You Are Not Being Told – Part 1
We have been given a very clear narrative about the declared coronavirus pandemic. The UK State has passed legislation, in the form of the Coronavirus Act, to compel people to self isolate and practice social distancing in order to delay the spread of SARS-CoV-2 (SC2). We are told this “lockdown”, a common prison term, is essential. We are also told that SC2 has been clearly identified to be the virus which causes the COVID 19 syndrome.
At the time of writing SC2 is said to have infected 60,733 people with 7,097 people supposedly dying of COVID 19 in the UK. This case fatality ration (CFR) of 11.7% is seemingly one of the worst in the world. Furthermore, with just 135 people recovered, the recovery rate in the UK is inexplicably low.
Some reading this may baulk at use of words like “seemingly” and “alleged” in reference to these statistics. The mainstream media (MSM) have been leading the charge to cast anyone who questions the State’s coronavirus narrative as putting lives at risk ... Continue reading >>>
The government has decided to keep the scientific evidence upon which it is basing its response to the Chinese coronavirus secret until the pandemic subsides.
Boris Johnson’s administration is facing increased calls for transparency on the actions being recommended by the Scientific Advisory Group on Emergencies (Sage) that is heading the response to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, records from the group’s meetings and the identity of its members will be kept secret until “Sage stops convening on this emergency”, the UK’s chief scientific adviser Sir Patrick Vallance said […]
Conservative MP Greg Clark said that the identities of the scientists should be revealed “in order to have some visibility into what institutions and disciplines are represented, it would be extremely useful to have the membership known”, The Times reports … Continue reading >>>
French police officers ise tear gas guns against rioters (Picture: Daily Mail / AFP)
Lockdown protests across the Western world have become more widespread. Economies have crashed, unemployment is soaring, and people are losing their minds in quarantine.
France is the latest country to observe social unrest, more specifically in Paris, as the second night of riots unfolded across the capital.
Riots broke out in the suburbs of Villeneuve-la-Garenne and Aulnay-sous-Bois, northern Paris, over the weekend, and continued through Monday, the Daily Mail reports.
The spark that lit the powder keg was due to an incident involving an Arab Muslim male on a motorcycle who was critically injured in a collision with an unmarked police car on Saturday in Villeneuve-la-Garenne … Continue reading >>>
