I heard a piece on BBC World Service about “the virus” as it is in Prague and the Czech Republic generally.
Earlier in 2020, the Czech government instituted one of the most severe “lockdowns” (and other measures) in the world. Now? The Czech Republic apparently has the second-highest rate of infections [known] in the world.
Nothing was said of how many people were having to be hospitalized or how many are dying. A temporary large hospital has been constructed, but according to the BBC reporter, the ventilators shown were “wheezing” without patients.
Conclusion? Nothing much from the BBC; from me, the conclusion that testing is up, known infections are up, but —perhaps— the number of actual deaths from the virus is not much —if at all— up. Also, that the severe “lockdown” of earlier this year has not stopped infection but —at most— merely delayed it.
It might have been better to allow infection to proliferate in the Spring and Summer, when hospitals are less busy generally. Same in the UK.
In the UK, the “lockdown” (shutdown of virtually the whole society) was meant to be, or at least presented to the public as, temporary, for a few weeks only, to “flatten the curve” of infection, the numbers hospitalized etc, and so “save the NHS”. In the contemporary phrase, “that went well”…
Here we are 6+ months later and, while the UK death rate (from “the virus” if not from everything else) is now low, technical infection is high and we still have “local” lockdowns amounting to a semi-national lockdown; also of course the intrusive and unnecessary facemask nonsense.

What interests me is that “she sits on the Boards of Standard Chartered Bank, Twitter, Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI), and the African Risk Capacity (ARC).” [Wikipedia]. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ngozi_Okonjo-Iweala
My NWO nose is twitching…both Twitter and the Vaccine Alliance…and major commercial banks. She was also 2-i-c at the World Bank, and worked at the Bank for 25 years. She is on the IMF Board too.

The “Great Reset”…
The “Red Wall” areas reconsider the future
“Boris Johnson’s pitch to would-be first-time Tory voters in the North of England was threefold: getting Brexit done; “levelling up” the economy; and taking their side on culture war issues against the spectre of the metropolitan, liberal elite.
While the success of the Prime Minister’s Brexit strategy hangs in the balance, those last two aims are in tatters. As constituencies across the North of England suffer soaring infection rates, new restrictions on their civil liberties, and impending economic Armageddon, the bright and optimistic vision of last December lies smouldering in ruins, like the last fags in the gutter outside a shuttered Liverpool pub.” [Standpoint magazine]
A fairly interesting article, but omitting the key fact about the 2019 General Election, which is that the Conservative Party did not win it; Labour lost it. The Conservative Party won only by default. Huge numbers of 2017 Labour voters did not vote Labour in 2019, true…but relatively few of those voted Conservative. More of the 2017 Labour voters did not vote at all in 2019.
If that actually were to take off, the Labour Party would be toast in many constituencies, but the chances are that nothing much will come of it.
Perhaps, but Britain needs an aware white Northern European population, and a citizen and fully-armed militia (under the control of a proper government), far more than a few more ships.
Andrew Carnegie was right: it is a disgrace to die rich (unless perhaps the deceased’s will does public good as a major part of it). Today’s billionaires should take note. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andrew_Carnegie
When I was a small child, living in Caversham Heights, on the edge of Reading, where the suburbs of the Berkshire town meet the Oxfordshire woods and fields, my mother would often take me to the public library in Caversham itself, which library was founded by Carnegie, and had a plaque set into the exterior wall to that effect. I have never forgotten that. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andrew_Carnegie#1901%E2%80%931919:_Philanthropist
The foundation stone was laid in 1905, and the Library opened in 1907.
When I used to go there, aged about 4 or 5 and thereafter, from about 1960, it looked just the same as in the photograph. I recognize that circular leather seat (it was red shiny leather, perhaps very much of its time: see The Maltese Falcon).
When the library opened, in 1907, the whole area of Caversham and beyond, from the north bank of the Thames at Reading, was still part of Oxfordshire. It only became part of Berkshire in 1911.

Even more sinister is the way that this “study”, poorly conceived and carried out, was first published months ago, and is now being pushed again in the msm Lugenpresse (Lie-Press). None dare call it conspiracy…
The only way to stop the slide to tyranny is to directly impact those who have engineered the present Coronavirus toytown police state which is halfway to a real police state. I am talking about Boris-idiot and his cohorts.
More evidence that Labour, though not in the opinion-poll trough it was in when Corbyn was leader [translation: when the entire Jewish-influenced or owned mass media were trashing Labour and Corbyn on a daily basis], has not broken through in terms of public support, despite the manifest incompetence and unpleasantness of the Boris-idiot “Conservative” government.
All Boris-idiot is good for is cracking jokes and playing the public entertainer. Anything else— rubbish.
Well, not so surprising. After all, at least half the American public (and the British public, for that matter), still believe that the German government of the 1940s “gassed” millions of Jews, despite no credible evidence ever having been adduced for that.
The fakery of the “holocaust” farrago since the 1950s has contaminated politics, law, the mass media, and of course modern historical study and authorship; that has been particularly the case since the real TV/Hollywood campaign started in the 1970s: Schindler’s List (1993) and so on. Most people have no idea that that film was an adaptation of a novel by an Australian who was only 3 years old at the start of the Second World War, and only 9 when it finished.
Ironically, reducing the population of the Earth is one of the things that David Attenborough is most right about (so long as those reduced in numbers are non-European). As for the Extinction Rebellion loonies, I have blogged about them previously: https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/08/16/the-extinction-rebellion-levellers/; https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/10/09/extinction-rebellion-greta-thunberg-cressida-dick-and-the-madness-of-protesting-crowds/; https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2020/09/08/diary-blog-8-september-2020-including-further-assessment-of-extinction-rebellion-as-well-as-of-tim-crosland-and-plan-b-etc/.

Recent anti-lockdown protest in Oxford Street
The above tweet (commenting upon another tweet) was tweeted a few days ago by the egregious Jo Maugham, a prolific tweeter who likes to virtue-signal, a pose damaged when it was widely publicized that he had brutally beaten to death a fox.
Maugham, a half-Jew by actual parentage [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jolyon_Maugham#Early_life; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Benedictus#Life], and who is a barrister (QC) in the field of tax law, is presumably someone of quite high intelligence, but his pronouncements and judgment calls often show, in my opinion, a lack of commonsense. Not just the fox-killing incident. Maugham was or is a leading supporter of Remain vis a vis the EU; also, if I recall aright, of the doomed joke party, Change UK, which bombed at the European Elections and General Election of 2019. Now look at that tweet featured above.
People protesting against the increasingly totalitarian nature of the (supposedly) anti-“virus” measures taken by a panicked government in the UK, are not “bringing death to the innocent“. Au contraire, the government “lockdowns”, semi-shutdown of the NHS etc are killing far more than the “virus” so many seem to fear.
As to the Extinction Rebellion loonies, if Maugham thinks that their antics will in any way “save the planet from destruction“, he is in a strange part of cloud-cuckoo land (see above for links to my articles about Extinction Rebellion etc).
A different viewpoint to that of Maugham:

I favour Brexit, but this incompetent Jewish/Indian government of clowns, and its predecessors, have badly mishandled everything. Still, it could trigger the biggest upsurge in social nationalism since the 1930s. “Always look on the bright side of Life”…
I can only assume that that tweeter is unaware of my existence…(though I never use “Right”/”Left” terminology).
One sees how the System in the UK used “Tommy Robinson”, the EDL, and the “Football Lads’ Alliance” etc as “controlled opposition”, which meant that instead of something like the above, the UK had pointless marches and brawling by the bottle-throwing dupes of those organizing and those (((behind the scenes))). Result? No threat to the System, and the “protestors”, like their idiotic American counterparts, were even “pro-Israel”. Talk about slaves loving their chains!

Nazim Ali Tribunal hearing
The latest “Campaign Against Antisemitism (“CAA”) “lawfare” outrage (along with the continuing affaire Chabloz) is the complaint against Nazim Ali, a pharmacist, who made a speech at the Al Quds march in London three years ago, in 2017.
The “CAA” did its usual thing of sneaking around hoping to record something “antisemitic” so that the CAA might complain to the police or to professional regulators.
The case is now before the professional regulatory tribunal for the pharmaceutical profession.
The same thing happened to Jez Turner of London Forum. His speech in Whitehall was overheard by CAA snoop Gideon Falter and/or others. The police and then Crown Prosecution Service [CPS] declined to prosecute, so the CAA used “lawfare”, going to the High Court to have the no-prosecution decision subjected to judicial review. The result was a stalemate, but the Crown Prosecution Service did “reassess” the matter, eventually prosecuting Jez Turner, who was, after a Crown Court trial, eventually sentenced to a year in prison, serving half. A hero.
I was subjected to similar persecution by both the CAA and the very similar or allied group, with partly-overlapping membership, “UK Lawyers for Israel”: https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/; https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/.
After my unjust disbarment in October 2016, Falter, the “Director” of the CAA Jew-Zionist pressure group, said to the national Press (Judenpresse…) that my case proved that anyone in a recognized profession who said anything the CAA deemed “antisemitic” would suffer “devastating professional consequences“. Google “Ian Millard barrister” for more.
The Jew-Zionists succeeded in both getting me disbarred in 2016 (though it took nearly three years) and in having me removed from Twitter in 2018. They failed in several attempts to have me arrested and/or prosecuted. They have persecuted me in other ways (eg by having Amazon remove all my book reviews, at which I was a “Top 50” reviewer out of millions). “They” are enemies of European civilization.
A war on free speech, by Zionist Jew pests.
So here we have such a case, “lawfare” against pharmacist Nazim Ali. Good luck to him.
What goes around comes around…
