Coming soon

What with one thing or another we’ve been a little busy this last year

Normal service will be resumed soon but in the meantime take a peep at this, it’s a new draft law that the conservative government wants to impose on the UK. Lots and lots of high sounding snippets combined with #Orwellian overtones of the worst kind. Here it is, the Online Harms Bill 2021.

It boils down to this under the pretence of protecting people on-line it seeks to make social media companies and search engines responsible for censoring what #British people can see on the internet. It mentions dealing Indecent Images of Children and related sexual offences, it mentions threats to kill, it mentions dealing with grossly offensive messages and the like – doesn’t that sound all good and proper? What it doesn’t mention is that all these matters are already covered by British Law – extensively so and no reform is needed.

As they say though the Devil’s in the detail. The #Bill also seeks to make the spreading of #disinformation on-line a criminal offence (carrying up to 5 years imprisonment no less) – in particular it refers to Covid (but it won’t stop there). In essence, criticising HM Govt and posting information that establishes them as fools or liars will be a crime. Once their “expert” determines what is true anything else will be regarded as false. Repeat it and go to prison. More than that, Search Engines and Social Media sites will be compelled to search out “disinformation” and remove it from the web or if that’s not possible remove links and mentions to it. Once enacted if you’re British what you will find on the web will be little more than what a hard-left leaning internet company feels you’re entitled to see and nothing else.

As a reminder here’s a short list of some of the things that were claimed to be disinformation in 2020 but are now known to be true and which if the Online Harms Bill had been in force in 2020 you could have been imprisoned for repeating.

  • The real death rate for #Covid is about a tenth of what is claimed by HM Gov.
  • Mechanical ventilation is a not a valid treatment for Covid and it kills people with chest infections.
  • Ivermectin is an effective early treatment for Covid
  • Face masks cause respirator infections (through serving as breeding sports for bacteria) and mental health issues whilst do nothing or next to nothing to stop the spread of viruses.
  • Lock downs do nothing or next to nothing to stop the spread of viruses and long term kill more than they potentially save.
  • PPE contracts were not being issued in accordance with good business practice and ripe for fraud.
  • HM Govt was employing a secret unit to spread fear amongst the population to ensure compliance with increasingly demented government edicts.
  • That the Covid Crisis would be used to introduce a biometric social credit system disguised as a “Vaccine Passport” based on the Chinese Communist Party system for population control.
  • That the Covid Crisis would be used as camouflage to bring in other anti-social and harmful policies to fruition, an example being the “net zero” campaign.
  • That Covid emerged in a lab in Wuhan and is a man made engineered virus developed from something previously harmless.
  • That Covid would be used to impose totalitarian forms of government on to once free democracies, Italy, Austria, Germany, Australia, New Zealand and Canada being particular examples.
  • That the anti-Covid drugs sold as vaccines are not such thing and are at best experimental treatments that even if they give some temporary benefit will quickly cease to work.
  • That as the anti-Covid drugs have not completed long term testing they should only be given to those most at risk.
  • That the anti-Covid drugs sold as vaccines will actually make people vulnerable to infection (even if that infection is mild) and will extend the life of the pandemic.
  • That Covid just like any other viruses will naturally mutate to a harmless or near harmless form.

And that ladies and gents is just the tip of the iceberg … we also know that the anti-Covid drugs are damaging the hearts of young people, athletic young men especially leading to death and long term disablement.

How many more people would have died or would be dying now if the facts above weren’t now well known? How many people would be due to die in the next few years if mentioning any of the facts above resulted in imprisonment?

Sweden’s failure

Image

Over the last year #Sweden has:

  • Failed to deny its children an education
  • Failed to impoverish its people by not denying them employment
  • Failed to destroy their economy
  • Failed to put people under house arrest
  • Failed to deny #science

It’s also failed to:

  • Give into a media enflamed #hysteria
  • Give into the predictions made by poor science

… and as a result has had no significant change in the national death rate.

This is the strategy the UK was following until it gave in to uninformed media pressure. To date the UK policy of Lock-down after #lock-down is believed to have killed or harmed more than 10 times the number of those helped and is responsible for the prolongation of the #pandemic and some of the mutations.

Dormouse in America

According to reports the American #Democratic Party are planning to ban the use of sex specific pronouns in #Congress. For the uninitiated Congress is one of the main law-making assembles of the #US government, the other is the Senate.

Having read this news The Dormouse has started to pack his bags with a view to emigrating to this land of wonder. For surely if this is the most important issue facing the law makers of this great country then the land must truly be a place of peace, prosperity and virtue.

Imagine a nation with no crime, no poverty, no homelessness, no living with the effects of illness and disease, no out of control drug problems, an absence of rioting based on historical racial grievances, schools that are places of learning and not mass shootings, places of higher education that are beacons of learning and tolerance and not on-trend fashionable bigotry, a nation where the politicians aren’t corrupt and seek office for their own and their friends and family’s enrichment, a nation where elections are free, fair and beyond reproach with their probity …

… oh what a marvellous, marvellous nation the United States must be to have none of these problems allowing their law makers to concentrate on the really important question of today, “How to run a country without offending cross-dressers”.

Beyond parody, the UK’s newest response to COVID

Yesterday he Prime Minister of the UK announced a national house arrest for the vast majority of the UK population, the leaders of the devolved assemblies announced likewise. Schools are closed, people must stay at home unless certain exceptions apply. Businesses that have survived so far must shut, indeed the citizens of this once free nation are only permitted to work if their work is for an essential business and they can’t work from home.

Who’s demanded this, well teachers for one at least their unions, this years Christmas holiday clearly wasn’t long enough for them and they get paid, very well paid whether they’re at home or at work. Besides whoever said that children are entitled to an education and the companionship of their peers. Please, don’t excuse their behaviour by referring to “home learning”, home learning simply doesn’t work and is no substitution for the social activity of children interacting with their peers. As usual it’s the children of the poorest families who are hit the worst.

“Oh” we hear you say, “The poorest hit hardest, well at least the Labour Party will defend them. Well no, the Labour Party is funded by the unions and they’ve learned from hard experience not to bite the hand that feeds them so have decided to call for an even stronger house arrest than Boris has imposed … without it’s interesting to note the consent of Parliament.

Is there any science to this? The short answer is no, there is no evidence at all that Lock-Downs or home-imprisonment which is perhaps the better term has any positive effect on reducing the transmission of any virus. Indeed the net effect of locking people up in their homes is to prolong the life of the virus and kill more people, both in the short term for health reasons and in the long term through the effects of poverty.

Image

People who are infected with the virus become immune to the virus for a short while afterwards – 3 to 6 months. Currently in the UK there are believed to be around two and a half million are already immune through this mechanism, this number increases in line with the daily infection rate. The faster the rate of infection then then faster the rate of immunisation. It really is as simple as that.

But the current increase in infection is leading to an increase in hospitalisation which is leading to extra strain on the NHS and extra deaths.

No, as this doctor admits that’s far from the truth. Firstly the NHS has no idea of how many it’s treating for Covid 19, it simply reports how many people being treated for any condition that have also tested positive for COVID. Testing positive for Covid is not the same as being in hospital because of Covid. As of todays date there is no evidence to suggest that the additional known cases has lead to an increase in hospital admissions …

Dr Layla McCay, NHS confederation director confirms what The Dormouse writes above … and she should know.

Well surely there’s more deaths?

No, here’s the infection rate (John Hopkins University)

Here’s the death rate over the same period granted only London but is shows the trend.

Image
Yes, this is only London, but London is said to the epicentre of a new wave of death and infection. If the death rate was

It’s painfully obvious that deaths are not following positive tests (or cases as the press like to very melodramatically present them). This is because more people are being tested and some issues with the PCB test producing false positives.

The bottom line is that although COVID is real, it is dangerous it is far less dangerous than is claimed. That the lock-downs imposed on what was once a free people are not simply unnecessary but are a risk to physical, mental and economic health. The Dormouse doesn’t pretend to know why the government is following this route, early last year the government were treating COVID 19 just like any other COVID virus. Following a mass campaign on social media and the Labour controlled press the government changed policy to imprison people within their own homes. Three times over the last year this policy failed, they are now imposing it for a forth time … The Dormouse suspect that the real reason for this nonsense is that the government has dug itself a hole that deep it needs the action of an outside influence to use as an excuse to return to normality. This excuse is the mass vaccination program – which although it should do much to reduce the severity of COVID 19 will not stop its spread

The UK Parliament votes on these new restrictions on Wednesday. If your thoughts are similar to those of The Dormouse you can write to your MP to try and stop this madness.

EU Sell-out?

Now the full text of the EU leaving agreement is out it has become evident that once more the people of the UK are being sold out to the EU.

The full text is over 1,155 pages long. Far to long to be scrutinised by the #UK #Parliament before it’s due to vote on acceptance in a few days time but already some very clear and unambiguous anti-UK provisions are glaringly obvious.

First and foremost the UK #fishing industry and coastal communities have been sold down the river.

Under this agreement the UK does not regain control over its own fishing grounds. They remain under the control of the EU, quotas continue to be set by the EU, permitted fishing methods remain set by the EU, types of vessels permitted to be used for fishing continue set by the EU, no legal way of ensuring that EU vessels may be checked to see if they are sticking within the EU set laws. The fishing industry is potentially worth up to £20 Billion (the money currently being made from fishing UK waters) … all this is lost. There isn’t even a provision that fish taken in British waters must be landed at British ports.

What this means in simple terms is that EU states can continue to send super trawlers into UK waters, scrape the seas clean of fish, destroy the environment necessary to spawn new fish stocks and the UK government isn’t even permitted to effectively patrol UK waters to ensure that the rules such as they are being adhered to. And last but not least, if the UK government grows some balls and throws EU vessels out of British waters then the UK has to pay compensation …

Moving on, trade is contingent on the UK adhering the principles of EU human rights legislation. Putting aside for a moment the fact that most European States had no concept of human rights until the legislation was imposed on them by the UK and USA following Germany’s defeat in 1945, there is a clear diversion between what was envisioned by Human Rights legislation and what they have morphed into today. As the UK and the EU inevitably drift apart this clause will grow to be a bone of contention.

And to close this very short little overview, the UK will continue to contribute cash to the largely imaginary EU #military intervention force. Quite why no one really knows

Covid death rate in the UK down for second week

Great news! Well yes it is, less deaths is always good news.

Sadly it’s also very bad news. It’s very bad news because it proves beyond any possible doubt that UK deaths caused by #Covid19 were dropping before the government imposed it’s “#Tier 4” lock-down policy on millions of British citizens. It proves that regardless of the spread of Covid19 the mortality rate is dropping, it proves that herd immunity and virus mutation was making Covid19 less dangerous.

Image

It also proves that the current house arrest imposed on millions in SE England, Wales and Scotland is unnecessary. As a reminder under UK law and in particular the Human Rights Act 1998 any interference with certain rights held by a citizen by a government is unlawful if not done in accordance with law, is not necessary and is not proportionate.

Depending on the individual concerned the Government’s Tier 4 directions breach one or more of these rights:

  • Article 8: right to a private and family life
  • Article 5: the right to liberty and security
  • Article 1 of the First Protocol: right to peaceful enjoyment of your property
  • Article 2 of the First Protocol: right to education
  • Article 10: freedom of expression and
  • Article 11: the right to protest and freedom of association

As the government’s imposition of Tier 4 is based on claims that are clearly false and not only false but entirely at odds with the known facts it follows that the government’s interreference with our rights is #unlawful.

Some would say that it is a citizen’s duty to oppose a government acting unlawfully.

Covid Hotspots out of Europe

Covid19+

Covid Hotspots out of Europe

On Saturday the 19th of Dec the Prime Minister of the UK, #Boris Johnson announced a new UK Lock-Down Tier, tier 4. He placed around 16 million British people into this tier. No physical movement is permitted outside of the effected area shops and businesses are closed along other restrictions on an individuals personal freedoms.

The scare tactic used to justify this lock down were claims of a new mutation of the #Covid19 virus that according to the UK government spreads at speeds up to #70% faster than the non mutated strain. The UK government is now mooting proposals to continue this attack on the economy and traditional British civil freedoms until Easter 2021.

The basic premise is that this new #Covid19 mutation spreads faster than others. The scientific evidence on this claim is at best ambiguous and at worse contradicts this claim.

It is true that the UK has seen a rise in known Covid19 cases but of greater import is that these new cases have not lead to an increase in the mortality rate for this time of the year which remains more or less within the rolling 5 year average.

Image

Frankly the government claims about an impending apocalypse aren’t simply wrong, they are bordering on the dishonest. The government’s claim that the new mutation (of a great many mutations) spreads faster is disproved by the above graph. The mutated strain was first spotted in September of 2020. If it was capable of spreading as claimed by the government then by late October, early November the death rate should have been approaching April’s levels. It isn’t. The conclusion is two fold either Covid19 is not spreading as claimed by the government and the extra cases noted are due to the additional testing that’s taking place or the virus is spreading as claimed but is not producing any significant numbers of additional deaths.

Either way this is not a public health emergency and there is currently no empirical evidence that demands the excessive lock-downs demanded by government.

Should we be frightened of new strains of Covid19? According to the #BMJ, the answer is probably not. Covid19 is similar to other viruses in that it mutates naturally, over time these mutations tend to become less virulent. In very simple terms a virus is like any other living thing, it wants to live. It it kills its host it dies with the host, by becoming less dangerous to health the virus promotes its own long term survival. For an update of what significant mutations have already taken place here’s an interesting little article by the UK consortium tasked with tracking the mutations.

One side effect of the UK government’s hysteria is that by promoting the idea that this new mutation is more contagious and by implication more dangerous and that this was an emergency situation #EU member states have used this as an excuse to stop trade and travel from the UK. This has nothing to do with the mutated virus, the EU is already infected but is all to do with attempting to influence the current #Brexit trade negotiations. It’s noteworthy that Boris and his band of hapless morons failed to anticipate this.

Once again the EU has shown itself to be untrustworthy and manipulative and yet some people still worship at the feet of that particular false idol.

Government madness

Lock-down fever …

  • Lock down 1 … Failed
    • Lock down 2 … Failed
      • Lock down 3 … Failed

We shouldn’t really have to say more but for the avoidance of all doubt Lock-Downs do not stop the transmission of #Covid19 or indeed any similar plague, Lock-Downs prolong the effectiveness of the virus by preventing #herd #immunity to develop. To put it more plainly, every time a person is exposed to the virus and recovers they become immune for a while, when enough people are immune we have herd immunity and the virus is beaten. By Locking-Down any immunity gained is lost because the immune person is no longer exposed to the virus and the necessary cells die off.

Lock Down Kills

Shelter the vulnerable, vaccinate them when vaccine is available and get everyone back to work, nothing else will get the country back on its feet.
