“Virus” infections tail off before “lockdown” (shutdown)
So infections are apparently declining in number across much of the country, and were declining days ago, in other words before the second national “lockdown” (ruinous shutdown) of society even started.
Will this wake up the “lockdown” and facemask zealots? I doubt it. As for the Government, it cannot admit that the measures are useless or even counter-productive…
The (((Guardian))) goes full globalist and finance-capitalist.
Of course, the “mad psychiatrist” is a cliche, but there is often a kernel of truth in cliches, of course. In this case, the doctor in question seems to imagine that most shops are open ( they are not) and that most people are not masked (I should hope not; the facemask nonsense is only mandated, by the —probably invalid— law, inside shops etc).
The above tweet is actually the true voice of the Twitter pseudo-intelligentsia. Begging to be controlled, and wishing full control upon a cowed population; wanting everyone to be miserable and dependent; also, either ignorant or uncaring of the damage to the economy (which will eventually have its effect on pay, State benefits, services, infrastructure). A typical Twitter virtue-signaller.
Indeed. Neither is that urge to exert petty power confined to the police. All the heretofore gophers and wage slaves such as receptionists, supermarket cashiers, shop staff generally, have been rather enjoying their (presumed, assumed) power to tell visitors to adjust their masks, stand back etc. Some stray idiots started to tell complete strangers they encountered, or who were nearby, to do so! I see less of that now, compared to a few months ago, probably because the mask zealots got barked at a few times by freedom-fighters or dissidents (like me!)…
Hypocrite Stuchbery (who has repeatedly called for those with whom he disagrees or of whom he disapproves to be punched, taken down, taken out, have their skulls crushed in etc). Of course, Stuchbery always does his “antifa” and pro-Jew lobby cheerleading from a very safe distance…and see: https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/10/23/a-few-words-about-mike-stuchbery/.
Needless to say, I have little time for Raheem Kassam, another of the “alt-Right” or “alt-Lite” wastes of space (Breitbart, “Prison Planet” Watson, “Sargon of Akkad” Carl Benjamin, Katie Hopkins etc), but it is telling that Kassam’s online newspaper has now been suspended (removed) from Twitter. I was expelled, David Icke has been expelled. Many others as well.
“Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.” [John F. Kennedy].
Today is the 103rd anniversary of the Bolshevik seizure of power in Russia, a coup d’etat in one city of one corner of a vast empire, which flame spread like a wildfire across those huge territories. A cataclysmic and largely catastrophic event. Probably the single biggest reason why Russia does not today rule the world, or is not at least the most influential state…
The Russian Revolution, that is the real one, in early 1917, not the mainly Jewish putsch headed by Lenin in October (old-style) 1917, did not emerge from nowhere. The social inequities under Tsarism provided the fuel, then events (not Bolshevik propaganda) provided the spark that set that fuel alight.
The Bolsheviks were in fact almost an irrelevance until 1917. Their numbers seem to have been between 5,000 and 50,000 until that year. Lenin himself was not even in Russia until two months after the first or real revolution of 1917. His putsch merely took over an existing situation.
I doubt that many, in the Russia of, say, 1913 or 1914, could have predicted that the Imperial state (and society) would fall so easily and so comprehensively.

“Like Peter Finch’s deranged newsreader in the 1976 movie Network, Shelley Tasker is mad as hell and isn’t going to take it any more.
As England was pitchforked into another debilitating lockdown, she set up an amplifier on the steps of Truro Cathedral, grabbed a microphone and began telling passers-by what’s ‘really going on’ in the NHS. Within minutes she had attracted a small crowd.
Shelley has resigned in disgust from her job as a healthcare assistant at Treliske hospital and wants the world to know why.
The idea that the NHS is overrun, she said, is a pack of lies. ‘I can tell you now that at the height of the pandemic I had no work because there were no patients.
‘On Friday in Treliske there were three people with Covid. We’ve closed down Cornwall because three people are in hospital.’
She also claimed that patients who died from flu were being registered dishonestly as Covid victims on death certificates.
Yesterday the chief executive of the Royal Cornwall Hospitals Trust confirmed that in the county’s main hospital there are just seven patients suffering from coronavirus, three of them in intensive care.
Yet on the strength of that minuscule number of cases, a county of 565,000 people is being shut down. Businesses are again closing their doors and many will never reopen. Cornwall, like the rest of the country, is braced for a jobs bloodbath.” [Richard Littlejohn, in the Daily Mail]
The above echoes my recent experience of having visited a small hospital in Southern England a few times and briefly. Almost deserted.
I see that Littlejohn compares the “virus” madness, and the behaviour of the police and others, and just as I did a day or two ago, to the film The Lives of Others, about people in the pre-1990 DDR (East Germany). Or does Littlejohn read my blog? (he also uses some of my typical phrasing…). Actually, quite a few journalists and MPs (etc) do read my blog.
Beat John Rentoul again (I scored 6/10).
Well, vice-President (so far).
and, from the 2016 election…
Anyone for coffee?…
I have had a few experiences in recent years that actually surprised me re. police, about how ignorant of the law they often are and how unwilling they are to be instructed even by me, a former barrister who appeared many times not only in the lower courts (magistrates’ courts, Crown Court, County Court) but also in the High Court.
