Boris Johnson, lying in intensive care three weeks ago might have experienced at a personal level the threat that it presents to the body of the nation and the body politic. But while propagandists point to Boris and tell is in fervid tones, “See, if it can strike The Prme Minister down it can hit any of us,” as if we are all too stupid to remember that, love him or hate him, Boris has had a torrid few months, working long hours, in stressful situations, travelling around the world, fighting an election, seeing Brexit through and then having to deal with ihis pandemic. He must have been drained, and exhaustion will wreck the mammilian immune system as effectively as the lockdown is wrecking the economies of the developed nations.
Covid – 19 will seek vulnerable immune system and attack ruthlessly as if it was desigbed to do just that. The virus does not know what it is doing of course, but that’s how evolution works; it is not a meachanistic process as many who call themselves scientists appear to think. Survival of the fittest does not necessarily mean the biggest, strongest, fastest runners or best fighters although any of those can be an advantage in evolutionary terms, as can having a bullet proof immune system. COVID-19 has proved it is not the monster some research grant phishing scientists and the more hysterical sectors of the media would have us believer. It is surely a nasty virus but the biggest problem it is giving us at the moment is its inconsistency.
Its workings are mysterious. There is still no clear picture of how it spreads. Even in countries that cannot be accused of fiddling their figures there remains no certainty as to how many people are dying of it, let alone how many have contracted it. This has not been helped by misreporting and references in official statistics to “Coronavirus – related deaths,” rather than giving numbers of peoplw who died prinicpally of COVID-19. To formulate a policy for dealing with the virus, then, is not simply a matter of following ‘the science,’ most of which is science fiction anyway. Even the world’s most brilliant epidemiologists know themselves to be groping after solutions in fog. There is no self-evident path to defeating SARS-Cov-2.
Having said, it is still difficult to to accept that the Prime Minister, during the fortnight he has spent at his official retreat, Chequers, convalescing after a bout of serious illness some cynics have said seemed perfectly timed and far too convenient, will not have reflected on whether, in the days before he was rushed to hospital, he might possibly have done things differently.
The Government’s campaign against Covid-19 started well, with the government looking at the statistics and seeing that the virus disproportionately attacked the old and frail, the chronically ill and those with compromised immune systems.A cynic might conclude it could have been designed to be used by a brutally tyrannical anauthoritarian regime that wanted to cull its ‘useless eaters’ to borrow a phrase from Nazi Germany especially when we consider the suspected origins of COVID – 19
Taking note of these things our government’s initial plan was to protect the old and those with chronic health problems and known vulnerabilities and, following the advice of serious epidemiologists, let the outbreak run its course as these waves of infection historically tend to run out of steam after two or three months. Such balanced and level headed scientific advice is ignored however, in favour of more lurid and sensational narratives.
What shocked the public most at the height of the panic was the sheer hysteria that hit the airwaves and newsprint. Suddenly the disgraceful and discredited Professor Neil Ferguson was coming out with the same hysterical numbers as he did with foot and mouth, swine flu, bird flu, MERS and BSE. What…..we all asked, was he even still doing in the job, let alone advising the government,
Someone in the civil service must have had a hotline to the media and I suspect it has something to do with Bill Gates and his billions, Gates has assiduously been trying to insert himself into this crisis, yet have no qualifications in biology or medicine. But that would not stop a man of such monstrous arrogance, he had no qualifications or professional experience when he foisted a shoddy operating system for small computers on the world.
Boris must ask himself why he was so easily swayed from a well thought out plan by a media he knows is against his government, and a suspicion he must have had of another civil service attempt at sabotaging the government. Surely he could have stood back and asked for a second or third opinion. After all there are very many laboratories who do not rely on globalist millions who are just as capable of giving sound advice.
If I had a three times failed professor showing me a model very similar to those previously overhyped models, all my antennae would be bouncing around. I suppose we are seeing the result of a sclerotic and lazy civil service who think they can make mistakes and slide into the shadows, leaving ministers to take the can. Boris needs to now get a grip with the civil service and indeed Imperial College and kick them out of touch.
Prior to his illness, the only ideal that ever seemed to stir Johnson to matching flourishes of emotion was what he has always lauded as Britain’s “ancient and basic freedoms” — but, standing outside No 10 on the day of his return to active duty, he insisted once again that the need to save the NHS from being overwhelmed to priority over releasing us all from house arrest. Before he fell ill, Boris had spoken od a laissez fair approach, allowing the general population to develop herd immunity. Now he speaks of lockdown measures continuing indefinitely unless a vaccine is found. One has to wonder was he got at whike in hospital by wannabe Galactic Emperor Bill Gates who has called for lockdown measures to remain in place and public gatherings be banned until every human on the planet has been vaccinated. It will not come as a surprise to many to learn that Mr. Gates owns via his “charitable” foundation, a vaccine developer and manufacturer.
From his words, spoken outside Downing Street yesterday Boris appears to have lost his nerve, he no longer speaks as one prepared to stand up to the “scientists” of the academic commmunity (aka CHIMPS – Completely Hopeless In Most Practical situations) or the bureaucrats of The United Nations and its various offshoots. He must become a hawk and rescue the UK. With an non – functioning economy there will be vastly reduced tax revenue, no money for the NHS, welfare payments and other public sector services. The longer lockdown continues the more self employed workers and private sector companies go bust so the welfare bill goes up as tax revenue is driven down still further . Public sector workers you are safe now and enjoying your sun tan paid by the private sector but if money reduces even your jobs are in danger. But Boris, who was actutely aware of these things now seems oblivious to all except the advice of incompetent and discredited scientists and that charlatan Bill Gates who is interested only in advancing the interests of his vaccine company.
It appears to me he’s been lured to The Dark Side by Galatic Emperor Palpatine Gates. Was he given one of the Gates Foundations secret vaccines while he was in hospital perhaps? The Microsoft founder has spoken publicly of using vaccines to reduce population and control behaviour. And something must have immunised Boris against common sense.
Sensible members of the public and a number of private hospitals were saying the Government should stick with the original plan, we are not stupid, we can read the statistics and understand that COVID – 19 does not cause serious illness in the majority of us . The electorate was fully behind Boris when he was talking in those terms and we are a sensible law abiding country. However if the lockdown contunues and increasingly ridiculous news stories are used to justify iy, there will be civil unrest
What shocked the majority was the sheer hysteria that hit the airwaves. Suddenly that disgraceful and discredited Professor Neil Ferguson was coming out with the same hysterical numbers as he did with foot and mouth, swine flu, SARS, MERS and BSE. And our elected leaders, on advice from their civil servants were listening to him.
Someone in the civil service must have had a hotline to the media and I suspect it has something to do with Bill Gates and his billions, after all Imperial College London, where Ferguson is a tenured professor receives massive injections of funding from The Gates Foundation.
Boris must ask himself (and when he has a credible answer, tell us,) why he was so easily swayed from a well thought out plan by a media he knows is against his government, and a suspicion he must have had of another civil service attempt at sabotaging the government. Surely he could have stood back and asked for a second or third opinion. After all there are very many laboratories who do not rely on globalist millions who are just as capable of giving sound advice.
When a failed professor witha 100% RECORD OF BEING WRONG ON PANDEMIC PREDICTIONS showS US a model very similar to those previously overhyped models, the news industry’s antennae should be bouncing around. Instead we are seeing the result of a sclerotic and lazy civil service who think they can make mistakes and slide into the shadows, leaving ministers to take the can. Boris needs to now get a grip with the civil service and indeed Imperial College and kick them into touch.
Just been watching old Gordon’s press conference.
What on earth does he keep doing with his left hand, dropping it down from the lectern every minute or so?
Crossing his fingers behind his back as children do when they tell a porky pie?
Or perhaps simply a bit of pant pickin’, a la Rafa Nadal, the king of clay?
Gordon the king of feet of clay, preparing to serve up his big ideas.
