Remembrance of times past: I recall my mother playing that (on a gramophone, not a piano!); early 1960s, in between her watching Wimbledon on a black and white TV, the curtains of the French windows closed tightly against the July sun. A softer performance of Chopin, though, by Benno Moisewitsch [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benno_Moiseiwitsch]
As I blogged yesterday, for a government to say “not wearing facemasks is not now unlawful but you really should wear one and are expected to wear one” is not only dishonest but trashes the whole concept of the rule of law as understood for the past several centuries. To use social conformity, whipped on by endless msm propaganda, to coerce people into not doing something not unlawful, is a form of tyranny.
Exactly. In fact, the figure may well be far higher. When my mother-in-law, in her late 90s, was admitted to hospital (for a fracture) earlier this year, she was regularly tested for “the virus” during her several weeks there. After a couple of weeks, she tested positive, though showing no symptoms. She was discharged about 2 weeks later. Had she died within 28 days of that positive test, even had she been run down by a car, she would have been part of the lying government statistics, as someone who “died within 28 days of a positive test”.
What I find shocking is how easily even quite intelligent people, supposedly educated people, have been muzzled into conformity. Not only conformity of action (eg the facemask nonsense) but conformity of thought.
The final stage: students told not only what will be questioned on the exam papers, but exactly how to answer…
The System is already inventing enemies. Labelling organizations. Whipping up fear in the msm. Then any individual who is to be repressed can be incarcerated merely by the police and CPS asserting that he or she either belongs to said one or another organization or “supports” it. We have already seen much of that over the past few years.
In fact there is no “far right” “terrorism” in the UK. Young men talking big in public bars, and/or buying such materiel as samurai swords, does not constitute “terrorism” or even the preparation, and certainly not effective preparation, of or for it.
Well, I myself have taken no interest in the said Schauspiel-for-the-masses, but from what I have read here and there, tweeter “@Episode1point0” may well be correct.

Ridiculous bad-joke MP Claudia Webbe, trying to repress freedom of expression. She does not even know that the phrase she struggles to use is “free rein”, not “free reign“.
The Westminster monkeyhouse…
News to laugh at
A tweet from years ago, but the photograph is too beautiful to ignore.
From those ancient times when North Africa was ruled by those of post-Aryan origin…
First, all cars will be electric. Second, all cars will have computer/radar/microwave control and tracking. All under the guise of health and safety. The 2021 “track and trace” nonsense is but a primitive foreshadowing of all this. A society where the “humanoid insect” will be trackable at all times, when all communications will be monitored (for “criminal” communications such as anything “racist”, rebellious (etc). Third step will be centralized control, so that any car can be stopped by authorities at will, and the occupants abducted or neutralized.
Conspiracy theory? Ha…
I swam there in the early 1960s, when I was maybe 9 years old.
In the decadent days of the Roman imperium, the plebs were distracted by bread and circuses, while the equally decadent upper classes occupied themselves with “celebrity” sportsmen, chefs, and so on. As Hegel wrote, “the lesson of history is that people do not learn the lessons of history” (or something of the sort).
