The only point at which I agree with “social distancing” is that it is common sense to avoid coming within a foot or two (i.e. far less than one metre) of people, just in case one of those nearby people were to sneeze or breathe excitedly on one, unlikely though that may be anyway. That should, however, be a personal choice, not a State-mandated compulsion.
I cannot wait to see whether the conforming rabbits in the line outside Waitrose will automatically adjust to any new “advice” from this hapless hopeless government of fools to the effect that one metre rather than two is OK. Psychological serfdom. Day 1— two metres; day 2— one metre. All line up at the approved distance, shop for “essentials”, then go home to stand at the door and “clap for the NHS”, making sure to note whether any dangerous dissidents are not clapping (cf. North Korea and Stalin’s Russia).
“Clap for the NHS”?
The British people have developed (or been forced by politically-correct termites in government, Common Purpose etc to develop) a kind of religion-substitute. NHS. You cannot discuss healthcare or health outcomes rationally in the UK because the health service is a kind of quasi-religion.
I favour the NHS in principle, but it has become an immobile, often poorly-functioning special interest bloc. One should not forget that it employs over 2 million people, so is politically powerful. Inertia is huge. In a crisis, the NHS flounders, cannot properly equip its staff, and is focussed on keeping up its image.

Ha ha! Look at this idiot! (below) [update note: that tweet from a Scotsman has now been deleted, apparently]. Thinks that State benefits and pensions (which are far less than average pay) should be cut to 80% of their present level to “share the pain” with those “furloughed”!
This ******* country has just gone mad. Look at the tweets by @JimBruce100, below, for example.
The same Irishman, “J.P. Bruce”, tweeted this (below)!
Read this. Hitchens is right…
and look at this! “Ministers will allow…“…! So the pack of Jews, part-Jews, Indians and God knows what, that now constitutes the government of this country, will “allow” British people to picnic with their family and/or “exercise several times a day.” https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8281123/Britons-allowed-exercise-times-day-stage-relaxing-lockdown.html
What does it actually take for British people to ignore these “rules” and petty instant laws, and run a huge steamroller over “lockdown”, the toytown police, Boris-idiot, little Matt Hancock etc?
Public-private partnership— to brainwash the population
Since the Coronavirus situation began, followed and accompanied by the “Clap for NHS” stuff, I have noticed a considerable upswing in the notionally “private enterprise” organizations putting out what amounts to multikulti propaganda. You know the sort of thing: mixed race families, usually with a black, West Indian man and a white, usually blonde “wife” or other “partner”, their mixed-race children there too. A few of these propaganda ads even have two or more such multikulti “families” in the same clips.
I have blogged previously about this phenomenon:
This is no accident. Various ad agencies, numerous clients (fooled into allowing such stuff to go out under their corporate names), all dovetailing with System aims and purposes, including the recent “lockdown” nonsense.
We often hear about how, in Russia, Putin, the Russian state and its organs are tied to big business in an unholy alliance. Maybe we should look a bit closer home…
People starting to wonder “what happened to free speech” in the UK. (((They))) stole it…
The removal of dissident material from public view did not start with David Icke. I was removed from Twitter in 2018; Alison Chabloz has also been removed (and subjected to prosecution). The London Forum had its YouTube channel removed. Just a few examples.
Who or what is behind all this? Three guesses…
Others join in, notably the idiotic pseudo-socialist “antifa” rank and file, but behind all that is the same impetus, the same world-problem.
Some people seem, even now, to be surprised that they do not live in a “free country”, even after having been subjected to mass house arrest, arbitrary harassment by toytown police for “crimes” such as sunbathing, going for a motorbike ride in the country, sitting on a park bench, walking along a beach etc. For God’s sake, robots, wake up!
Below, idiotic Welsh woman wants everyone who expresses any opinion, that is with which her little brainwashed self does not agree, to be banned! Sign of the times…
Interesting! (see below)
On the subject of the BBC, it has become a “State broadcaster” in the worst sense. More boring and more biased than the old Soviet TV channels. I regret to have to say (as someone in favour of public service broadcasting) that the BBC is basically enemy propaganda now, and its staff are part of that.
Below, a fine example of how the self-described “Left” (pseudo-socialists) have lost all credibility and all ideological meaning. A wannabee msm scribbler lesbian applauds the censorship of David Icke and justifies it by his supposed breaking of the “terms and conditions” of a private enterprise…
I have to admit that, until today, I had no idea that the drink, Fanta, was invented in wartime Germany, and was the result of the US embargo, which cut off supplies of raw materials, meaning that Coca-Cola could not be produced in Germany.
A quite interesting article. Fanta was developed in Germany during WW2, but the usual orange flavour of today was introduced in Naples, in 1955. I was also unaware that there are over 90 (the article says both 90+ and 100+…) varieties of Fanta.
This made me laugh:
75th anniversary version
In February 2015, a 75th-anniversary version of Fanta was released in Germany. Packaged in glass bottles evoking the original design and with an authentic original wartime flavor including 30% whey and pomace, it is described on the packaging as “less sweet” and a German original. An associated television ad referenced the history of the drink and said the Coca-Cola company wanted to bring back “the feeling of the Good Old Times” which was interpreted by many to mean Nazi rule. The ad was subsequently replaced.” [Wikipedia]
Come to think of it, whatever happened to Tab, which was an early precursor to Diet Coke? My aunt-by-marriage in Sydney always drank that, circa 1967.
Ah…https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tab_(drink) (but no photos of 1960s bottles, only cans).
The latest ploy to create BRINO (Brexit In Name Only)?
Censorship by the international conspiracy (public-private matrix)
Below: Look at the tweet by “@AvifaunaLux”! What incredible nonsense people believe of “the past”, when they were not there, or even were there but have forgotten what it was like in reality…
It is seen all the time, this idea that, eg, the 1970s were drab days of no electrical supply (by reason of strikes) and “three day weeks”. That was a mere few weeks out of 10 years! One year only, 1974 (plus the “winter of discontent” in 1978-79 (again a few weeks only for most people): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Three-Day_Week#The_Three-Day_Week
Likewise, we see, all the time, nonsense on TV about how food was terrible in the UK in the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, even 1990s! I am tempted to think it all part of a media campaign to think our ghastly present is somehow good or “the best ever”, when that is far from the case.
Just yesterday I saw a tweet from a very odd official Hampshire Police account (@WatersideCops) to the effect that we are in an “ever-improving society”! Not for the first time, I wonder who is actually in charge of that very tendentious Twitter account. Some Common Purpose “alumna” (or alumnus, though I think not…)? An ideologically-fanatical infiltrator? Very odd indeed.
