Coronavirus: the official scare campaign continues
The goalposts are being moved: the official death toll in the UK from the virus is going to increase today or tomorrow, not because more people are dying but because if any link with the virus can be shown, that death will be added to the “Coronavirus” total!
“But in better news Britain’s coronavirus outbreak is ‘starting to slow’ as rate of increase in hospital admissions ‘eases’, says government expert Neil Ferguson” [Daily Mail]
The weather is forecast to get wetter in Britain, possibly with over 80% humidity by next week. That will help, if it happens, because the virus cannot live in humidity above 81%, and humidity has been well below that, around 50% or 60%, for weeks now.
Meanwhile, the poundland KGB carries on
I see that I was not alone when I blogged about the truly absurd over-reaction of some police during the “lockdown”. Now many msm reports, as well as those on Twitter, show police going well beyond both commonsense and their own powers (even beyond the new powers granted to them). Leading QCs and others have joined in. Good.

As I have blogged previously, the incompetent Derbyshire Police, already notorious for their persecution of satirical singer-songwriter Alison Chabloz (and being near the bottom of league tables for performance targets), have been, yet again, behaving like a poundland KGB:
“One of Britain’s most decorated judges, Lord Sumption, who retired from the Supreme Court in 2018, also criticised Derbyshire Police for having ‘shamed our policing traditions’ after the force chased walkers with drones.
“He added: ‘The tradition of policing in this country is that policemen are citizens in uniform, they are not members of a disciplined hierarchy operating just at the Government’s command.“
‘Yet in some parts of the country the police have been trying to stop people from doing things like travelling to take exercise in the open country which are not contrary to the regulations simply because ministers have said that they would prefer us not to.
‘The police have no power to enforce ministers’ preferences but only legal regulations which don’t go anything like as far as the Government’s guidance.
‘I have to say that the behaviour of Derbyshire Police in trying to shame people in using their undoubted right to travel to take exercise in the country and wrecking beauty spots in the fells so people don’t want to go there is frankly disgraceful.
‘This is what a police state is like. It’s a state in which the Government can issue orders or express preferences with no legal authority and the police will enforce ministers’ wishes.'”
[Lord Sumption, retired Supreme Court justice]

Ha ha! Someone called Tom Bradshaw, Vice-President of the National Farmers’ Union, heard on BBC Radio 4 Farming Today. Wants people, furloughed because of Coronavirus, to pick fruit and vegetables for low pay or for free, as some kind of civic duty! I can’t get over British farmers! When it suits them, they are brave independent farming business people who should be free to do as they wish; but at other times, they want people to volunteer to work for little or nothing, want to be featherbedded and subsidized and given money by government (taxpayers) just because they own land, or because they farm, or because their families have had that lifestyle for XYZ years…
Can this Toytown police state last?
How long will the British public tolerate this incipient police state?
British people are generally well-behaved and willing to comply with the occasional demands of police and other authorities. Also, in the present “crisis”, the UK public has shown that it wants to help society (look at the huge number who have volunteered). There is the additional point that many people have been, with reason, afraid of getting this latest virus from China. The whipped-up campaign by the authorities has certainly put millions in fear for their lives, though in fact the UK death toll at present works out as being only about 20 people per million population [1 April update: now 26 cases per million, but that may be because the criteria for the *statistics* have changed].
In other words, your chance of getting Coronavirus and also even simply knowing that you have it (because most infected people have either no, or only very mild, symptoms) is actually rather small. The chance that you will be seriously affected and have to stay in hospital is very small, about 3,000 to 1. The chance that you will die from it (in the UK) is about 1 chance in 50,000.
If this “house arrest of the whole population” goes on for “very long”, meaning, I think, more than a fw weeks, there will be a gradual rebellion against it unless the level of fear can be maintained or increased. Maybe that is why the msm is being told now that a different method of counting “Coronavirus” deaths is to be used, resulting in a different (higher) daily figure.
You can’t take it with you
I watched a Channel 4 documentary yesterday evening. Called something such as Putin— KGB Spy, something similar to that, anyway. Pretty dull and predictable. Channel 4 is a waste of government money (I had no idea until fairly recently that Ch4 is subsidized out of government funds).
The documentary rehashed the cases of Litvinenko and Politkovskaya as part of presenting a very poor and sketchy biog of Putin. It also examined the cases of Berezovsky and other Jew “oligarchs” in Russia.
At one point I did not know whether to laugh or scowl: on trial, the (half-) Jew corporate bandit Khodorkovsky shouted out about how Putin and the Russian state were acting like robbers, seizing his property. Impudent Jew rascal! He only had billions because he and the other Jew “oligarchs” had stolen the Russian economy in the 1990s from the Russian people, in blatant and scarcely-concealed theft.
Berezovsky, of course, has gone up the chimney now.
Life is boring without money, but merely having a lot does not of itself bring happiness.
That documentary, though, said a lot about where Channel 4 now is. It is stale, dull, predictable.
Mercifully, I missed most of a TV interview on either Sky News or BBC TV News this morning. Just caught the last 20 or so seconds, in which this joke-“socialist” pig-in-clover (who with her half-Jew husband, a High Court judge, owns 8 buy-to-let properties) gave out a few platitudes about the “necessity” for the Coronavirus “lockdown” (combined with a few fence-sitting remarks about the police doing a good job etc). She, and other pseudo-socialist parasites like her, are a major reason why Labour is in terminal decline now.

As is known, the Jew-Zionist element is actively trying to make the Labour Party insolvent (the campaign started when Corbyn was still, actively, Leader):
The term “bankruptcy” (which, stricto sensu, applies only to individuals and partnerships) just shows that not all tweeters are lawyers!
Still, the Labour Party may become insolvent. The Jews are talking about setting up a new “Labour” party under their control or influence. Maybe they should drop the “Labour” label forever and just call their new party something else. The Bund? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/General_Jewish_Labour_Bund
I notice that the UK has had about twice the number of confirmed cases as has had Turkey, but the death toll in the UK in absolute terms is about 9x more: https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/
In other words, the death rate from Coronavirus in the UK is about 4x or so higher than that in Turkey.
Reason(s)? I suppose that the main one is likely to be that Turkey is demographically a younger country than the UK. Persons under 14 make up a quarter of the population (in the UK 18%) and persons over 65 only 7% (in the UK, 16%):
Coronavirus is (and, yes, I know that there are exceptions) basically an old person’s condition and fatal Coronavirus a very old person’s condition.
A defendant who is obviously a minor public nuisance with a mental problem. The penalty for his minor crime (minor unless you are an hysteric) was, however, excessive, in my view (read the report below). Also, the parting shot by the Chairman of the lay bench betrayed a wrong attitude:
“Mackie, who receives £50 per week in benefits, was fined £500 and ordered to pay £135 costs. He agreed to pay off the fine at £5 per week. “I hope that really hurts you,” said the chair of the bench.” [Daily Mirror]
Labour’s terminal decline continues
Further to my comment about pig-in-clover “Labour” careerist Emily Thornberry, above, I have just seen this:
It looks as though most people would not vote Labour even if it were the only party standing!
I myself, of course, have never been a supporter of any of the System parties. Objectively, the Jews really did a job on Labour as soon as relatively anti-Zionist Jeremy Corbyn took the reins of leadership in 2015. That Jewish campaign was instrumental in Labour’s defeat in the 2019 General Election.
Labour might even have won, to the extent of at least achieving a plurality of Commons seats, had that Jewish campaign not been carried on in the msm (and social media, but the TV and Press were more important). The Jews from the “Campaign Against Antisemitism” fake “charity” even boasted about it, openly:
Now the Jews want blood from Labour and have made a complaint to the police-state Equality and Human Rights Commission.
Former MP Ruth Smeeth (also formerly a “strictly protected” “confidential contact” of the US Embassy in London and official of Israeli propagada outfit BICOM).
The BNP, in 2010, was the last political party to be “investigated” by the EHRC. Such matters cost parties a great deal of money, which is why the Jews do it, to bleed parties dry.
The Jewish campaign against Labour has had a number of results. One is that we now have a government which is scarcely even British, and is mindblowingly incompetent, but is, perhaps because of that, willing to take bold measures, “going in where the angels fear to tread”. The result of that is that Labour, disunited, deflated, effectively leaderless, has become a total irrelevance, unable even to pretend to oppose the Government.
Look at that poll (above). Conservative Party– 54%. 54%! When was any party that high in the polls? I looked it up. It was in June 1997, a month after the General Election of that year, the party was Labour and the figure was 62%! Sic transit gloria mundi…
In fact, the previous high was in April 1990. Labour again, on 56%. I was unable to access all the figures for previous decades, but the Conservative-led National Government achieved 54% in 1939, just before the start of the disastrous war against the German Reich.
I am now 63. I was born in 1956. I have been interested in politics since 1966 and in UK party politics intermittently since then and particularly since the early 1970s.

I do not think that, even in the days of Michael Foot, that ghastly little hypocrite, Labour has ever been quite so irrelevant, sidelined and without influence as it now is.
The Conservatives continue to ride high, not from their own merit, but because there is no real political opposition to them now. Not from Labour, even less from the LibDems, who will disappear very soon. A social-national party must emerge in England and Wales. It may not get the support of 54% of the people prior to its victory, but it might get 34% or 24% and, in a situation of continuing crisis, that might be enough to seize power, if it is a tightly-controlled vanguard.

Talk about “gene types”! Look at this Jew!
The late and unlamented Leon Brittan [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leon_Brittan]? in fact, not so. The photograph above is a Jewish fraudster called Freddy David, who features in the article below, which was sent to me: https://www.theoccidentalobserver.net/2020/03/31/when-minorities-are-mighty-how-tiny-genetic-differences-can-have-huge-cultural-consequences/

Interesting to note the strong tribal identity, though.
Went to Waitrose. Arrived an hour before close and read in the car for a while. Not many shoppers, but I noticed that every single one leaving the store had a pack of loo paper! Presumably, they are now limited to one pack.
Inside, the Handmaid’s Tale militia (Waitrose marshals), in their black clothing and woollen hats and scarves etc, were there but not so obvious as before. I did not notice whether the loo paper shelves were still being stripped (not when I last attended, 2 days ago), but dried pasta was mainly gone (obviously not for immediate use, because the fresh stuff was there in quantity). Kitchen roll plentiful, but limited to one pack per shopper; eggs also limited to one pack per shopper, the shelves largely but not entirely empty. The ones left were mostly the more expensive ones, such as Clarence Court Cotswold Old Legbar eggs. Everything else (except flour) seemed to be in good supply.
On leaving Waitrose’s precincts, I noticed that a police transit-type van was cruising around. There is a general atmosphere of slight unease now.
A final thought. Driving back to my humble home, I noticed again that there were more birds about or at least crossing my path. I had to brake, even at slow speeds, a couple of times. The increase in visibility of birds on or around roads was especially noticeable in semi-rural and suburbanized roads (as compared to rural lanes). In a way, a hopeful sign. Nature returns as humans pull back or disappear.
