Just one “small” news story, one that did not get much reported in the national Press or on TV news…

Niels de Vos, chair of the trust, said: “Since April a large proportion of our staff have been furloughed and with this scheme coming to an end, we sadly can’t save everyone’s jobs. Only when visitor numbers and spend return to pre-coronavirus levels will our business model break even again.”

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-birmingham-53533628

Visitor numbers will never return to pre-panic levels while those visitors are forced to wear facemasks. Forget it.

I wonder how many other “small” stories, unreported stories, there are right now, stories about 100, 200 or however many people losing their jobs, unable soon to pay rents, make mortgage payments etc… and mainly because of the present government’s panicked reaction to the “Coronavirus.

Facemask police state news

10 deaths (from or with “the virus”) out of 65 to 70 MILLION people…

The BBC has just reported that about 16 million people worldwide are thought to have been infected with (almost all not died with) Coronavirus since the scare started. That is about 1 person out of every 500. Not died from or with; been infected with. The death rate overall (which has varied wildly from country to country) seems to be around 2% of those infected. So, on that basis, 1 person out of every 25,000 people in the world has died with (partly from?) “the virus”, so far.

Other tweets seen recently

That tweeter, “@CanuckUK”, personifies the mentally unstable type that goes around masked even when the law —supposed “law”; it may not be lawful (valid), in fact— does not require it. I even saw a photo from a few months ago showing some stupid woman wearing full barrier-nursing kit: swathed in plastic from head to foot! What was she doing that required such protection? Working in an intensive care ward? No. Shopping in what looked like Oxford Street!

Boris-idiot and his latest idiocies

Boris-idiot (that clown presently posing as Prime Minister of the UK) has just announced more stupid policies and proposed laws. For one thing, he and his ministers have imposed a quarantine on visitors from Spain (and that includes returning Brit holidaymakers). Result? Apart from misery and inconvenience for those presently there on holiday or booked to go there, the likely collapse of the package holiday and airline industries.

I have to say that I find it odd that anyone actually wants to holiday in Spain at present. The “lockdown” and facemask nonsense has been far stricter in Spain than in the UK (which makes one wonder why Spain has had a “surge” in cases anyway, in view of the months of facemask muzzle-wearing and strict “lockdown”…We are told that such measures prevent such surges…).

I hear that in Spain, at present, a visit to a restaurant means wearing a facemask even at the table unless actually eating! I view the whole idea as somewhere between Monty Python and the Twilight Zone. Suffice to say that I shall not be going to Spain or anywhere else under such conditions. I doubt that I am alone in this. Then quarantine for 2 weeks on return? Forget it.

Who now will book a holiday or trip anywhere? The crowd of clowns posing as a government in the UK (backed by their “experts”— you remember, those medics and scientists who said that 800,000 might die in the UK…) are quite likely, soon, to quarantine arrivals from other countries as well, not just Spain.

About 90,000 people work for UK-based airlines; about 77,000 work for travel agencies, tour companies etc. There are still over 4,000 travel agency shops in the UK.

I wonder what the figures will be in 2021 and 2022?

Reverting to Boris-idiot’s government, little Matt Hancock has announced new health measures in respect of obesity. Certainly a serious issue (in fact, I could stand losing a few stone myself!), but these measures are either underwhelming or silly.

For example, restaurants will be compelled to have the calorie-count of each dish marked on the menu. That might work for businesses where the menus never or hardly ever change, such as fish and chip shops, McDonald’s etc, but in a restaurant with a changing menu, it places a huge burden (and so cost) on the restaurant.

I can see most restaurants closing down: fewer customers, more costs, less profit…Same with pubs.

These measures (laid down by Boris-idiot and his crew) show the clear signs of having come from people who really have little knowledge or understanding of how people think, of how businesses work (and that does include Indian “clever boy” Rishi Sunak), or of how to dig themselves out of the hole into which they have dug the UK.

I always said, from when the “virus” scare started, that there would not be a “V”-shaped recovery, but something like an “L”-shaped non-recovery. The “experts” mostly disagreed (then) but I feel even more certain that the economy is about to tank. The facemask nonsense just adds an extra burden.

USA. UK. Two very different countries, but with some similar trends and problems. I have lived in the USA, long ago, and am legally qualified there (Bar of the State of New York), but my main focus is the UK.

Looking at the UK, it is clear that there is really no functioning “democracy” worthy of the name (nor a population capable of sustaining one). All the trends that I see point toward an eventual culture war, which might become a kind of civil war.

Twitter

Seems that most aggressive Jews and their dupes or slaves have decided to boycott Twitter for 48 hours. The air seems fresher already!

Incidentally, I notice that one such boycotter is Layla Moran, the buck-toothed lesbian (she prefers “pansexual”) who is the latest leader of the fading LibDem rump.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Layla_Moran.

What makes Layla Moran’s kow-towing noteworthy is that she is half-Palestinian.

[update: same day: a reader of this blog corrects me to say that Layla Moran is not yet LibDem leader. Quite right. My mistake. She is only the candidate most likely to win at present. What does it say about the LibDems, though, that it has taken them 7 or 8 months to elect a leader and yet are still not there? Pathetic rabble.]

The meaning of numbers

We are hearing about upsurges in Coronavirus. These are being used to justify police-state measures in the UK and elsewhere. Strange times. The “upsurge” is entirely (certainly entirely in Europe) because testing is being done now on a fairly wide scale.

Yes, more people are now “officially” infected, simply because more people are being tested. Many show no symptoms; most, in fact, require no treatment; none, or almost none, will die or even become seriously unwell.

The actual number of deaths from (or even with) Coronavirus is dropping not only in the UK but worldwide. In the UK it is now down at or below 10 individuals per day, even on the basis that anyone dying with Coronavirus is deemed to die of Coronavirus.

Despite the above, BBC Today Programme and other shows preferred not to focus on the fact that the death rate is close to zero. Oh no, their choice was to feature some Scottish pilot who was hospitalized while flying for an airline in Vietnam!

The said Scottish pilot was the only patient in Vietnam likely to die of/with Coronavirus. and the Vietnamese were desperate to save him, and did. He was unlucky to have become infected, but the fact is that the unfortunate fellow is a statistical freak. He is now slowly recovering in the UK.

The BBC used the above case to claim (as did the unfortunate pilot) that Coronavirus is a huge threat to everyone, whereas it can be seen that that Scottish pilot was a one in a million or one in a hundred thousand statistical anomaly.

English schools— the Great Replacement

34% of primary school pupils in England are now from an “ethnic minority” (the vast majority non-white). Scroll on 39 years. What then? 50%? More?

This is the “Great Replacement”, or “White Genocide” if you like. Most MPs, msm drones, others too, are evil criminals who have deliberately caused this existential crisis.

Dennis buses

Dennis, the bus manufacturer, is cutting 650 jobs, a quarter of its staff complement. The majority of the cuts will fall in Falkirk, Scotland: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-scotland-business-53558309

Every day now— 500 jobs gone here, 1,000 there. The travel industry alone will soon shed tens of thousands.

  1. I would go further than Boris. Instead of a temporary quarantine (ah, diddums, that is really SUCH an ordeal- NOT!🙄🙄🙄🙄) I would permanently ban them from returning to Britain at all since the vast majority of people from Britain who visit Spain for a holiday are the yobbish, The ‘Scum’ reading types from places like Basildon near me!

    As a country, we would be well rid of these people. After all, they did vote for Maggie, Major, Blair and now Boris!🙄🙄🙄

      5. Also, most of these uncultured types go to Spain and then can’t even be bothered to speak a few words of Spanish! I went on holiday to the Italian Lakes in 2007 and made an effort to speak some Italian. The old lady at the hotel I was staying in was well impressed and was constantly smiling at me and actually congratulated me for doing this.😎👌😀

        I also ordered a delicious pizza at a nearby pizzeria in Italian and the owner was very pleased.I gave both these people reason to believe that not all British tourists are arrogant louts unwilling even to try to speak in a foreign language on holiday.

        I can’t understand why our tourists go to Spain and don’t even attempt to speak some Spanish. I learnt French and German at school so learning foreign languages isn’t too hard for me but our tourists should try speaking Spanish as it is a sign of respect and the language isn’t all that hard. Italian is a lot harder I find so there is more of an excuse there but the principle remains and foreigners will normally appreciate you if you at least try!

      6. Very kind of you to try to speak some Italian when on holidays. I do agree with that principle, and I always tried to learn some sentences or idiomatic expressions.

        I wonder why is that most English louts go to Spain, the only logical explanation is that it must be reasonably cheap. As you said, that kind of people do not care for the landscape or the culture, their only concern must be cheap food and booze.

        I haven’t set foot in Europe since 2005 and according to the news and the Internet most big Western European cities are horrible places full of subhumans (sorry, migrants). I remember seen a video of Paris three years ago, and it was shocking. Only 45% of London inhabitants are White.

  8. It DOES NOT matter at all whether people who are infected show little or ANY symptoms OR whether they know they have the disease. The most important point is that they ARE infected and this means they CAN then spread it to others and infect them thus potentially setting-off NEW chains of infections hence governments mandating the use of social distancing measures like facial masks to buy some time to contain the disease’s spread until a vaccine becomes available.

    1. The point is, m’Lord of Essex, very very few people get this and also require any medical attention at all. Those few *may* transmit the virus to others, but most of *them* will also require no attention. The vast majority.

      So if I understand you aright, you prefer that the whole of the UK wears facemasks or muzzles, and stays 3-9 feet away from all others (or most others) etc for the foreseeable future, in the hope that an effective vaccine *may* be discovered or formulated?

      It may take a year, it may take 5 years, it may never happen. All those restrictions, in a situation where the actual number of deaths has fallen to a handful daily, fewer than are killed on the roads…

      Meanwhile, huge numbers are *certainly* being killed *by* or *because of* the restrictions and the recent shutdown.

    This mess is primarily the fault of the Chinese and shows why they can’t be ever trusted by Western countries and why Priti Useless needs to be immediately sacked for grotesque dereliction of her duty to this country by failing to impose ultra-tough travel restrictions to this land in early March/April thereby allowing a FOREIGN origin viral disease to enter this country and spread so much before any real containment measures were enacted.

  12. Layla Moran is not the leader of the Liberal Democrats. She is just a leadership candidate at the moment. Indeed, according to Wikipedia, Lib Dem members won’t start to vote on this subject until the 30th of this month.

    She should describe herself as a bisexual rather than pansexual as she has had a boyfriend. From what I have seen of her on TV she seems to have a warm and engaging personality – an attractive quality in a person and a politician. She is nearly always smiling too and must be the happiest politician in Britain.

      Now, I think that people who are disgusted with the parties and candidates abstain, rather than vote for a “dustbin” or “protest” Liberal or LibDem. I see the LibDems fading to nothing soon.
