I can relate to that…
My view about all that has changed little or not at all in the past 5 months. I think that “the virus” swept through Europe in March/April, peaked then, and after that subsided. The death toll in the UK has dropped steadily since just before the middle of April, and that has been the situation in most if not all of Europe, regardless of whether the country concerned had a “lockdown” (shutdown of almost everything) or not.
Naturally, mass testing has resulted in many more “new cases”, people who, yes, have “the virus”, but who have few or no symptoms. Ludicrously, the recent increase or bulge in “cases” has trumped the falling death rate in terms of the governmental response.
As for the facemask nonsense, only now, when the death rate is almost flat, has the UK government of clowns mandated the wearing of masks or muzzles.
At present, in August 2020, on any given day, any UK resident has a one in THREE MILLION chance of dying with or from (mostly “with”) Coronavirus! At present, for example, a UK resident would have to take about 11,000 train journeys to even be infected! Not to die; just to be infected.
A society cannot live, certainly cannot live decently, when its population is muzzled and its economy shut down. Now, at last, most businesses in the UK are again open, but the retail ones are supposed to police the wearing of facemasks by their customers. I cannot see that that will encourage shoppers; quite to the contrary.
Already, millions of people in this country have been laid off (or not taken on) despite the “furlough” and other payments from central government funds. There will almost certainly be millions more.
This should be, in logic, the moment when everything is allowed to open up again, with the arguable exception of pubs and nightclubs. Of course, had it been my decision to make, Britain never would have been “locked down” anyway (except for pubs and nightclubs…and inward flights).
Boris-idiot and little Matt Hancock (advised by the ludicrous SAGE people) did everything wrong, pretty much: “locked down” most businesses, forced Britain to take a massive hit economically, destroyed much of the feeling that UK people still had civil rights, destroyed the proper functioning of the legal and courts system, turned the police into toytown bullies and nuisances, failed to stop inward flights; and even now are making the wrong decisions: mandating useless facemasks or muzzles, “locking down” towns or parts of cities etc.
Britain has survived a lot in its history, but I am not so sure that it will survive, in a recognizable form, this “virus” panic. Respect for the police and law has been greatly weakened, people know that the government are a bunch of clowns, but the official Opposition is similar and in fact almost invisible.
The consequences of the “virus” panic might be overcome, were they to stand alone. However, Britain has to contend with other pressures coming at the same time: the Brexit effect for one.
I supported Leave, support Brexit, but the governments of Theresa May and Boris-idiot have mishandled Britain’s exit to an extent that surprised even a reluctant cynic like me. Now, Britain is looking at potential chaos in some areas, at least initially.
Then we have the continuing migration-invasion, which not only does the government seem powerless to halt, but which it is actually encouraging! Boris-idiot has invited 4 million Hong Kong Chinese to live in the UK, which would require (will require?) enormous amounts of building, road construction etc.
To put it one way, 4 million people equates to nearly 1.5 times the population of the whole of Greater Manchester (2.8 million) or approximately the population of the Birmingham metropolitan area (4+ million).
To put it another way, Boris-idiot has invited a population the equivalent of between a quarter and a third of that living now in the entire London area sprawl to come to the UK.
Also, the “points-based” immigration system which is present government policy will mean that 660 MILLION immigrants could, in principle, come here. Yes, I know that 660,000,000 will in fact not come here, but 66 million might, and 6 million (oh…) or more certainly would.
This is more than simply the careless negligence of an incompetent part-Jew public entertainer posing as Prime Minister. It is “the Great Replacement” or “Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan“: https://www.westernspring.co.uk/the-coudenhove-kalergi-plan-the-genocide-of-the-peoples-of-europe/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_von_Coudenhove-Kalergi https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Replacement
In other words, we see that the incompetence of the present UK government masks more obviously sinister motives by those standing behind the present government.

That one made me laugh, and reminded me of the Fawlty Towers episode, The Germans, which ended with the Major saying “Naughty moose!”…
One has to ask, what kind of country allows itself to be “led” or “ruled” by a Cabinet composed almost entirely by persons of alien origin? Jews, part-Jews, Indians etc.
Meanwhile this [below] is Labour’s Shadow Chancellor. No, really…
Two points on the above: firstly, the tweeter may or may not be aware that, just like that little pissant Robert Jenrick, Keir Starmer is married to a Jewish woman (a lawyer), and their children are being brought up as Jewish. In other words, Starmer is completely in the Jew-Zionist pocket (to say the least); Starmer is also a Labour “Friend of Israel”.
Secondly, that sad scene from Jerusalem reinforces the fact that where Jews live in any but very small numbers, non-Jews have no decent life and certainly no freedom. That applies as much in the UK as it does in occupied Palestine (“Israel”). You only have to look at how Zionist Jews in the UK are trying to strangle free speech. Take a look at my own experiences in this regard, or some of such, over the past 6-7 years:
The Zionist assault on freedom in the UK has been intensifying for years.
What the pseudo-socialists of today cannot accept is that National Socialism in Germany actually created, in a few short years (really 6 years only, the years of peace 1933-39) a society which gave the majority, in fact the vast majority, of the German population, benefits hitherto only promised as “pie in the sky” by finance-capitalist parties and the social-democrat and socialist parties, let alone the KPD (German communists), who supported the blood-soaked and poverty-stricken rule of Stalin in the Soviet Union.
It turns out that Ms. Butler was not stopped (in fact the car seems to have been being driven by a white man of some kind) “because she is black“, because that car had tinted windows! Or maybe it was after dark. Will check…
I expect that Dawn Butler would make a good candidate for my occasional series, “Deadhead MPs”. In fact, looking at her Wikipedia entry, I am unsure how she has avoided being profiled by me already: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dawn_Butler#Expenses.
Some Parliamentary constituencies in the UK, particularly in London, are becoming like some of the more “ghetto” cities in the USA, places where only blacks can stand for election, realistically, because the black mobs there will only vote for a black candidate, no matter how stupid, uneducated, uncultured, incompetent or corrupt.
Poor England. It’s almost gone now.

“More Britons have been killed by flu and pneumonia than coronavirus for seven weeks in a row, new data has revealed.
Research published by the Office for National Statistics found influenza caused more deaths in the UK than Covid-19 between June 19 and July 31.
In the seven-week period, 6,626 Britons were killed by flu or pneumonia – compared to 2,992 coronavirus deaths.” [Daily Mail]

In the car earlier, heard a piano piece (via Radio 3) by someone whose name I did not catch, and who apparently was a noted young female composer who died young (I think that the presenter said aged 27). It caught my attention because it was called “Maida Vale“, and may have been (I don’t know) inspired by visits to the BBC studios, Maida Vale, which still exist: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maida_Vale_Studios (Wikipedia says that closure was announced in 2018, but as of today, the studios are, it seems, still in temporary use, if I did not mishear; I thought that the programme was being broadcast from there, but I was reading at the time too).
I myself lived in Maida Vale for about 20 years (but with breaks), though I was in Little Venice, and the BBC studios are much further out.
As to that short piano piece, it was actually quite intriguing, the style see-sawing between a French Belle Epoque composition and something almost in the style of Gershwin, I thought. That was my not very considered impression, anyway.
Ah, well thanks to the wonder of Google, I have found the composer: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morfydd_Llwyn_Owen, who was Welsh, and died at the tragically-young age of 26, in 1918.
I was obviously wrong about her possible connection with Maida Vale Studios though, despite the fact that the building was constructed in 1909. She may have known the building, though not as studios. It was an ice-rink at first, and only became BBC studios after reconstruction in 1933-34.
Well! Small world. The lady was apparently friendly with not only D.H. Lawrence, but Ezra Pound, the near-martyred American poet [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ezra_Pound], and with Prince Yusupov [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Felix_Yusupov], the leader of the assassins who killed Rasputin. I myself knew a lady who, as a young girl, knew Yusupov, who became a friend of the girl’s father and stayed with them in the 1930s at their estate in East Prussia. By a strange quirk of fate, the lady I knew lived, when I knew her, in Maida Vale and had done since the late 1950s.
