British Scientific Advisors reveal China Covering Up Full Extent Of Coronavirus

Real figures show the outbreak could be up to 40 times worse than we’ve been told

The Daily Mail reports that “Mr Johnson has been warned by scientific advisers that China’s officially declared statistics on the number of cases of coronavirus could be ‘downplayed by a factor of 15 to 40 times.’”

“There is a disgusting disinformation campaign going on and it is unacceptable,” an anonymous government source told The Mail.

“They [the Chinese government] know they have got this badly wrong and rather than owning it they are spreading lies.”

“It is going to be back to the diplomatic drawing board after this. Rethink is an understatement,” another government source said, with a further source adding that “There has to be a reckoning when this is over.”

The British government also “believes China is seeking to build its economic power during the pandemic with ‘predatory offers of help’ [to] countries around the world.’” the report continues.

China has been delivering hundreds of thousands of testing kits and masks to nations around the world. One problem, however, is that they don’t work.

“In Spain, which currently has the fourth-highest number of coronavirus cases in the world, the government purchased 640,000 rapid test kits from China and South Korea as it fights the pandemic,” The Free Beacon reported this week.

“Experts soon discovered, however, that the tests it purchased from Chinese company Bioeasy were only correctly identifying coronavirus cases 30 percent of the time, according to Spain’s El Pais.” the report notes.

“The Czech Republic also purchased 150,000 rapid test kits from China, and have likewise found problems.” the report continues, adding that  “One doctor using the tests found that 80 percent of the kits were faulty and has reverted back to the conventional lab tests, which are significantly slower to process.”

Other countries such as Turkey and Georgia, as well as Holland have reported problems with the tests and the masks.

Ever since the outbreak began in December, it has been acknowledged that China has been lying about the true numbers.

A scientific study out of the University of Southampton in the UK  found that had China acted sooner to combat their coronavirus, then the further spread could have been almost entirely avoided, and it would not have become a global pandemic.

It has become clear that the first cases of the Chinese virus were reported in mid-late November and early December, with scientists even estimating that the first jump of the virus from animals to humans probably occurred in October in the city of Wuhan.

Instead of acting immediately, the Chinese government waited until January 23rd before issuing quarantine orders to the 11 million people living in Wuhan.

The communist state was also actively working to suppress and punish doctors and scientists who tried to get warnings out, and  lied to the world by claiming there was “no evidence” of human-to-human transmission.

Scientist who convinced Boris lockdown was the only way to beat coronavirus criticised many times 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.

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 …

Mind The Gap – Rich And Poor Drift Further Apart

mind the gap between rich and poor

Mind the gap, a phrase familiar to anyone who has used the London Underground system, a warning to passengers to take care else they might lip into the space between the platform’s edge and the carriage floor.

It isn’t that gap we are warning against however but the widening gap in the supposedly civilised nations between the wealth and lifestyles of rich and poor. For all the fine words of consensus politicians, all the talk of a fair society and redistribution of wealth, all the manipulated statistics that are supposed to tell us how well we are doing, but never match up to the reality of most people’s experience, as ever the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer.

And Ed Miliband’s “squeezed middle” are feeling more like a tube of toothpaste in the home of a dysfunctional family.

But is everything as it seems. There is evidence that the gap between those who actually have the balance of formal education and practical experience needed to operate effectively and live well and the disconnected elitists of the political, academic and corporate world is widening rapidly.

from The Guardian:

I want to know what’s to stop this revolution from turning into a violent, destructive mess. Steele is characteristically optimistic. “I have struggled with this question. What I see happening is an end to national dictat and the emergence of bottom-up clarity, diversity, integrity, and sustainability. Individual towns across the USA are now nullifying federal and state regulations – for example gag laws on animal cruelty, blanket permissions for fracking. Those such as my colleague Parag Khanna that speak to a new era of city-states are correct in my view. Top down power has failed in a most spectacular manner, and bottom-up consensus power is emergent. ‘Not in my neighborhood’ is beginning to trump ‘Because I say so.’ The one unlimited resource we have on the planet is the human brain – the current strategy of 1% capitalism is failing because it is killing the Golden Goose at multiple levels. Unfortunately, the gap between those with money and power and those who actually know what they are talking about has grown catastrophic. The rich are surrounded by sycophants and pretenders whose continued employment demands that they not question the premises. As Larry Summers lectured Elizabeth Warren, ‘insiders do not criticize insiders.’”

Conversely Niall Ferguson writing in American cybermag Liberty Blitzkrieg warns that the controlling hierarchies are not going to let go that easily:

from The American Interest

Networks are not planned by a single authority; they are the main source of innovation but are relatively fragile. Hierarchies exist primarily because of economies of scale and scope, beginning with the imperative of self-defense. To that end, but for other reasons too, hierarchies seek to exploit the positive externalities of networks. States need networks, for no political hierarchy, no matter how powerful, can plan all the clever things that networks spontaneously generate. But if the hierarchy comes to control the networks so much as to compromise their benign self-organizing capacities, then innovation is bound to wane.

While Nafeez Ahmed for The Guradian has no doubt that a return to a system of city states loosely connected in a trading empire such as the Hellenic civilisations of Ancient Greece and Phoenicia or the medieval North European Hanseatic League, Ferguson questions whether networks will ultimately prove able to topple corporate and political hierarchies which currently hold a monopoly on economic and military power.

Clearly the growing gap between rich and poor suggests not, however a closer look at how fragile the global economic model really is and how desperate the elite and their useful idiots, the politically correct left are to suppress dissent and dilute democracy shows that not only is decentralization of power, and the return of regulatory authority to communities of a manageable size necessary, the longer the elite can resist it, the more bloody and painful the transition will be when it comes.

Its unlikely but I hope I’m around long enough to see the outcome

An excellent post from Anna Raccoon that sums up the kind of warped, totalitarian thinking behind Obama’s “You didn’t build that” speech. Here’s an extract:

Self Sufficiency, the American dream, a return to the lifestyle of the pioneers. Take care of yourself, take care of your own, live on the bounty of nature. Even in Oregon the State is encroaching. Those who dream of a similar lifestyle might care to take note of the result of a court case that has been on going there for ten years now.

Water, that most essential ingredient of life for mankind. It doesn’t belong to mankind though, even when it falls from the sky. It belongs to the State. Allegedly.

A Oregon man has just been jailed for 30 days and fined $1,500 dollars for allowing rainwater that fell from the sky onto his 170 acres farm to drop into the ponds on his farm, …

Monty Python Joins Government’s Lifestyle Police

For people expecting a little sanity in government, the coalition have been a great disappointment. For those of us who appreciate the absurdity of the human condition the ConDemnation government go from strength to strength.

A story that caught the eye of the Boggart Blog newsdesk today concerns a recommendation made by the House of Lord’s science and technology committee who think the government’s policy of trying to bully people into adopting a healthier lifestyle by threatening them with David Cameron’s nudger is a waste of time.

The Noble Lords of science and technology take the view that nudging, a repeated gentle poking of the nudgee by the person or persons who weild the nudger is a waste of time. The Lords believe the most effective way of persuading people to adopt healthier lifestyles is through force of law.

In other words they are saying “You will be charged with a criminal offence if you do not eat your five portions of fruit and veg a day.”

In the not too distant future then you may expect to be awakened by the sound of your front door being smashed down and then confronted by three men in medieval religious grb yelling:
“Nobody expects the Spinach Inquisition.”

Whisky Drinkers Will Turn In Their Graves

Scottish Whisky purists will be horrified.

True afficionadoes of Ouisce Beath are very fussy about how their favourite tipple is handled. The drink must be treated with due respect.

So the launch of whisky in a can by a company in Panama is bound to ruffle a few (famous) grouse feathers.

According to a story in The Daily Mail the firm,Scottish Spirits of Panama City (though it does maintain a mail drop address in Glasgow, is aiming to sell to people who have a fast paced, modern lifestyle.

The cans hold three doubles, ideal for sharing with a couple of friends.

Personally I think it’s a great idea and I hope they launch the Party Seven size very soon.

Health Fascism With Teeth

Heath news: A survey out today has “proved” that everyone who does not clean their teeth at least twice every five minutes is going to die of heart disease before they are five years old.

Right so.

Leaving aside the hyperbole it seems, though we we have not seen the figures yet, that people who clean their teeth less often are at a slightly higher risk of suffering from heart disease.

Which kind of suggests the old Scottish habit of sending a young person to the dentists to have all their teeth pulled “so they’ll be nae more trouble tae ye” as a twenty first birthday present might have been a better idea than anyone suspected.

On the other hand having their teeth yanked out early did not stop the Scots having the highest rate of heart disease of all British regions.

OO – er missis, have we stumbled on yet another “scientific” survey based on entirely false logic? Did the survey fail to consider that people who can’t be arsed bruhing their teeth might perhaps also smoke and drink heavily, eat lots of fry ups and take aways and generally have unhealthy lifestyles?

The Evil Bastards Who Want To Save The Planet

It’s official! Greening up your lifestyle make you a more evil person.

Don’t buy fair trade chocolate or you will be seized by an uncontrollable urge to beat up and rob little old ladies.

Buying organic fruit and vegetables will provoke an irresistible urge to inflict unspeakable cruelties on small furry animals.

Drive an electric or hybrid car and you fill find it delights you to drop really smelly farts in crowded lifts just before you get out.

Meticulously sort your household waste for recycling and you will certainly find yourself playing nasty tricks on small children like telling them to help themselves from a jar of sweets you know is just out of reach.

You felt sure you are a nice person, after all going green shows you care about the planet so you might well be asking how could we predict a greener lifestyle would turn you into an evil monster?

Well the information is all in a report titled “Do Green Products Make Us Better People” which is published today in the academic journal “Psychological Science.” So this stuff is science OK and that proves, does it not, that the reports cannot possibly be wrong.

The authors of the report, two Canadian psychologists, Nina Mazor and Chen Bo Zhong (there’s a truly Canadian name if ever there was one) are quite clearly suggesting that virtuous acts performed voluntarily give us a psychological licence to do something selfish and anti social to reward ourselves. The moral justification we give ourselves is that we have earned the right to indulge whims by behaving well.

Thus people who eat only organic are less likely to share their sweets, people who ride bikes will probably become bar – shy when it’s their turn to get a round in at the pub. And people who would like us to think they live the ascetic lifestyles of intellectuals if ever they are elected (or not elected in the case of certain Labour Prime Ministers) to positions of power are more inclined to become crazed, authoritarian tyrants.

On top of all that people who adopt a more environmentally friendly lifestyle are more likely to steal or fraudulently obtain money, good or services (this is not my opinion, it’s science remember and science is always right because it’s scientific. You can’t argue with facts like that.

In the minds of the greenies they are better people than those who eat takeaways, microwaveable things or pizzas and if you are a better, greener person that the one you are stealing from it isn’t wrong to steal.

By logical extension if you live on alfalfa salads and wear hemp chudees you could probably convince yourself there is no wrong in regicide, eating deep fried lard, stealing the Church poor box or smoking a ciggy in a pub.

The bottom line here is all the science and psychology and sociology and green propaganda from the Politically Correct Thought Police will never change human nature.

Right so. Having had organic porridge with soya milk for breakfast I’m off to do something really evil now. I think I’ll go out in the car and break speed limits without compunction. I deserve it.

Segway Owner Rides Off A Cliff

Schadenfreude is the Zeitgeist.

Oh dear, what subtle traps the gods lay for members of The Politically Correct Thought Police as those individuals walk on hot coals in trying to be PC on every issue when often defending one oppressed minority means offending another.

Not long ago I was attacked in several threads on British and American blogs for taking the piss out of International Athletics authorities for letting a contestant with bollocks and a beard take part in a women’s’ race in the World Athletics Championship.

It’s OK, I’m thick skinned but it was amusing to see how many of the PCTP decided my comments were inspired by racism despite half the contestants disadvantaged by Caster Semenya’s presence being African, Asian or Hispanic. On Planet PC all people are equal but some are more equal than others. Self – righteousness and stupidity are always inseparable I find.

(For the record, I might ridicule the situation but have always felt Semenya was someone with a serious medical problem who needed help and instead of getting it she was being exploited by self serving South African Athletics Chiefs.)

It is very gratifying to indulge in a bit of Schadenfreude (taking pleasure in the misery of others) as the medical reports prove what we all knew from the start but today I have a double helping as a lifestyle columnist in The Guardian has walked into another trap. For Guardian Lifestyle writers of course, Jeremy Clarkson is Beelzebub, Darth Vader and Iggy The Barebum Fire-bobby all rolled into one. He is all pollutants to all men, the one who would turn baby kittens into subway sandwiches and put third world orphans on treadmills to generate electricity for his incandescent bulbs. Nuff said.

I was reading a lifestyle column in my Guardian today and the townie writer, a middle class woman who has embraced the ways of Waitrose shopping faux country folk was burbling on rapturously about her bumper crop of apples. Nice.

What does a green living Waitrose shopping faux country person do with their spare apples once they have eaten all they want to eat for a very long time. Freeze them? Dry them? Bottle them?

Recently we Boggart Bloggers, who are born with a cruel streak you know, were getting drunk on our favourite vintage Schadenfreude after it was revealed that the greenies de rigeur Aga cookers were ten times as polluting as our ordinary hobs and ovens. Drying the Apples was out for Apple woman then, to make dried apples you have to core, slice and bake them for six hours. Very environment hostile.

Freezing was a no-no too. Running a freezer takes energy and you have to cook your apples before freezing and then cook them again before you eat them.

Apple woman decided on the traditional way of storing apples when you haven’t a deep, cool cellar. Bottling, like me and fatsally’s Dear Old Mum used to do with damsons, gooseberries, apples and rhubarb when we were young.

Ms Guardian Apple Woman was so pleased with herself, she had found a method that did not use much energy, produced no non compostable waste and the basic kit, bottling jars could be used year after year.

Wonder how she will feel when someone reminds her the jars she will use were invented by an ancestor of …. cue opening chords of Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in B minor) …. Jeremy Clarkson.

Poetic Tribute To A Prodigious Drinker (Keith Floyd)

Keith Floyd
enjoyed
the finest things in life.
Let’s not pretend,
in the end
his lifestyle gave him grief.

Keith Floyd
employed
his drinking arm too freely,
his cooking skills
and frequent spills
entertained the corpus vile

Keith Floyd
destroyed
his business and his family
but though the booze
became bad news
he died still drinking gamely

Always broke,
but what a bloke.
What tribute to deliver?
Instead of praise
we should raise
a statue of his liver.

Goodbye lardarse, 2009 Is The Year Of The lardhead.

A news story in The Daily Telegraph on New Year’s Eve warned us all that too much thinking can make people fat.

Yes, that is correct, thinking makes you fat. According to research carried out by scientists (don’t you just love them?) at the University of Somewhere We’ve Never heard Of In Canada, spending one’s life sitting around thinking clever stuff can lead to obesity. Doesn’t matter if you eat bran or bacon butties, wholemeal brown bread or highly processed while sliced, butter or low fat spread.

Now the reprobates in the Boggart Blog office make no claims about being competent in scientific clever stuff but we would guess it’s the sitting around part rather than the thinking that leads to weight gain. We don’t know much about food science, you might say, but we know what we like. And let there be no doubt, sausages sarnies with brown sauce, burgers or chip butties just do not work on healthy brown bread.

But as we say, we are not scientists so we thought we had better look into this more deeply if only to affirm the correctness of our decisions to pursue the lifestyle of silly buggers. Well it seems the scientists have found that while thinking is a low energy occupation it is in fact very stressful, especially if one tries to think thoughts that are too big for one’s brain. And the stress of thinking these thoughts leads to people ordering in pizzas, Indian or Chinese takeaways, fish chips and peas with a steak pudding on the side or truckloads of Mars Bars – oh no sorry, that is caused by something else entirely.

The Telegraph story “Too much thinking can make you fat” carries a full report on how the experiments were conducted although this does not really explain how the scientists knew they were choosing serious thinkers and not just pikeys who heard there was free food going and pretended to think.

But I sense some of you are confused. “What on earth are you playing at Ian, a Guardian Reader like you looking in that nasty, right wing Telegraph?” you might well be asking.

I’ll be honest, I was absolutely sick of reading the sycophantic arse dribble written by Guardian writers as they queue to kiss Barak Obama’s arse and worship his “intellect, vision and charisma.” (The Obamessiah may possess all these qualities but so far we only have his word for it.) Perversely the same people who want to worship the Obamessiah are the ones who get very upset with Boggart Blog for making fun of scientists.

Well let’s accept this new research is correct. What does that say about Sidi Obama’s intellect? Not much thinking going on in his head obviously.

BUT WHILE WE CELEBRATE the loonyness of academics let us not forget that when it comes to sheer howling at the moon and chewing the carpet startk raving bonkers in the head mentalism you cant beat the old aristocratic families as the obituary of Lady Anne Cavendish – Bentinck reminds us.
