Batten down the Hatches
On 4th June of this year, Ex-MI6 chief Sir Richard Dearlove said he believed that Covid-19 is man-made citing an 'important' report which claimed virus was manufactured in a lab.
6 weeks after this admission, more than 100 outbreaks of coronavirus are happening each week, Matt Hancock has revealed and shared in MSM, as it emerged door-to-door testing will increasingly be used to contain localised infections.
Writing for The Telegraph, the Health Secretary said many outbreaks are being dealt with “swiftly and silently”, through small lockdowns and new testing regimes such as portable walk-in centres.
A farm in Herefordshire became the first such business in the country to go into lockdown yesterday, after 73 workers tested positive for Covid-19, leading to concerns over further outbreaks happening as seasonal workers gather for harvest time.
This begs the question being how much of our food supply will be impacted. Is it safe to assume that some food will be left to rot? Which fruit and vegetables were they picking and packing? Will this lead to price rises short term?
Mr Hancock will this week review the lockdown imposed on Leicester, the first city in Britain to have restrictions reimposed because of a spike in cases there.
When they say review, could this mean that they have been so successful, they wish to extend to other parts of the country?
The Government has been highly critical of the response of local authorities in the city. One option would be for central government to take over the running of the city for a temporary period.
Mr Hancock is expected to stop short of doing so but is likely to announce closer monitoring of the performance and decisions of the council.
In his article for the Telegraph, Mr Hancock discloses that local interventions, which include the closure of pubs, schools and businesses and increased testing at a local level, are running into triple figures each week, a higher figure than had previously been reported.
He says that with testing capacity now at more than 300,000 tests per day, the Government will “hunt down the virus” by blitzing any area with a significant outbreak.
Did they hunt down all the people that Boris had dealings with? Incidentally have you noticed that Boris looks different to the Boris who went into hospital? Normally people lose lots of weight when they are hospitalised and their eyes don’t change colour.
He writes: “Each week there are over a hundred local actions taken across the country – some of these will make the news, but many more are swiftly and silently dealt with.
“This is thanks in large part to the incredible efforts of local authorities – all of whom have stepped up and published their local outbreak control plans in line with the end of June deadline.”
He says the increased testing capacity, the highest in Europe, means “we can take more targeted local action and less national lockdown, to restore the freedom of the majority while controlling the virus wherever we can find it”.
Mr Hancock’s disclosure of the level of local outbreaks comes after Boris Johnson urged workers to start returning to their offices and other workplaces to help restore the economy.
The mainstream media would have us believe that there is tension in Government between the need to protect public health and the need to prevent an economic meltdown, and Mr Hancock’s intervention serves as a reminder to his colleagues that the danger of a second wave of the virus remains. Another 650 cases of coronavirus were confirmed in the UK on Sunday, with 21 more deaths so 629 did not die.
In Leicester door-to-door testing is being rolled out in the worst affected areas of the city to test everyone in a given area, whether they have symptoms or not. The Telegraph understands that this will be used more widely to stifle outbreaks at a street by street level in other areas in the coming weeks and months.
Door to door delivery of home testing kits is also being trialled, together with portable walk-in centres which are being placed within outbreak zones, coupled with public information campaigns to encourage people to get tested.
Some of the local lockdowns involve individual premises such as six pubs which have closed after individual members of staff or customers tested positive.
Others, such as the Herefordshire farm, involve far more widespread outbreaks. Around 200 staff at AS Green and Co, which supplies vegetables to Marks & Spencer, Sainsbury's, Aldi, Waitrose, Tescos and Asda, will spend the next two weeks isolated in temporary mobile home accommodation in a bid to control the spread after 73 staff members, many of whom had no symptoms, tested positive. The workers are employed to carry out picking and packing work while living in mobile homes on Rook Row Farm. No workers are being permitted to leave with police on guard at the exits as the vegetable farm staff who live in trailers are ordered to self-isolate after 73 CO-WORKERS TEST POSITIVE. This reminds me of the situation in a block of flats in Melbourne Australia where the inhabitants are all under house arrest.
It comes after farmers appealed for people to take up paid roles on local farms to stop food being left to rot in the fields as part of the Feed The Nation Campaign.
The owner of AS green & Co was looking for 100 pickers and 60 packers to join their team at the end of April.
Now it was reported at that time by people who volunteered of the fact that they were being expected to live on site. One could be cynical and ask the question –
Why was there a seeming insistence for workers to stay on site in close proximity?
Knowing that CV19 had seemingly spread throughout several care homes by this time, why were volunteers to live on the farms, cheek by jowl?
It follows a number of outbreaks in meat processing plants. Many of us are conscious that our government is aiming towards the New Green Deal which is moving towards a reduction in meat output very soon.
The Government has drawn up a watchlist of 20 towns that are at the highest risk of going into lockdown. They include Bradford, Blackburn and Kirklees, where higher than average infection rates has categorised them as being of “concern” or needing “enhanced” support.
Two Kent towns, Ashford and Folkestone, are also on the list of potential hotspots.
Some of the outbreaks are so localised that they involve a single postcode, which on average covers 15 properties, though it can vary between one and 100.
At this point, let me just remind people that it was only six years ago that patients who suffered brain damage as a result of taking a swine flu vaccine were to receive multi-million-pound payouts from the UK government. The government had been expected to receive a bill of approximately £60 million, with each of the 60 victims expected to receive about £1 million each.
Peter Todd, a lawyer who represented many of the claimants, told the Sunday Times at the time: "There has never been a case like this before. The victims of this vaccine have an incurable and lifelong condition and will require extensive medication."
Following the swine flu outbreak of 2009, about 60 million people, most of them children, received the vaccine including Josh Hadfield, 8, from Somerset, who is on anti-narcolepsy drugs costing £15,000 a year to help him stay awake during the school day.
"If you make him laugh, he collapses. His memory is shot. There is no cure. He says he wishes he hadn't been born. I feel incredibly guilty about letting him have the vaccine," said his mother Caroline Hadfield, 43.
Meanwhile back to the current day, The Cabinet Office has awarded an £840,000 contract to research public opinion about government policies to a company owned by two long-term associates of Michael Gove and Dominic Cummings, without putting the work out for tender.
Public First, a small policy and research company in London, is run by James Frayne, whose work alongside Cummings – the prime minister’s senior adviser – dates back to a Eurosceptic campaign 20 years ago, and Rachel Wolf, a former adviser to Gove who co-wrote the Conservative party’s 2019 election manifesto.
The government justified the absence of a competitive tendering process, which would have enabled other companies to bid, under emergency regulations that allow services to be urgently commissioned in response to the Covid-19 crisis.
However, the Cabinet Office’s public record states that portions of the work, which involved focus group research, related to Brexit rather than Covid-19, a joint investigation by the Guardian and openDemocracy has established.
A Cabinet Office spokesman said this was because of bookkeeping methods, and insisted that, contrary to government records, all the focus group research done by Public First was related to the pandemic.
The Cabinet Office, where Gove is the minister responsible, initially commissioned Public First to carry out focus groups from 3 March, although no contract was put in place until 5 June.
Government work is legally required to be put out for competitive tender to ensure the best qualified company is appointed, unless there are exceptional circumstances, such as an unforeseen emergency.
When a contract was finally produced on 5 June, it was made retrospective to cover the work done since 3 March. The Cabinet Office paid Public First £253,000 for the two projects listed as being Brexit-related and two more pieces of work done before the contract was put in place.
Sounds like shenanigans to me!! And more of that with regards to the wearing of masks…
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said today, the 13th, that people should wear masks in confined spaces such as shops and that the government would say more in the next few days about what “tools of enforcement” would be used.
Asked if he would make it compulsory to wear masks in shops, Johnson said: “Masks have a great deal of value in confined places.”
“I do think that in shops it is very important to wear a face covering,” Johnson said. “Yes - face coverings I think people should be wearing them in shops.”
“In terms of how we do that, whether we make it mandatory or not, we will be looking at the guidance and will saying a little bit more in the next few days,” he said.
So in the words written by an anonymous blogger in response:
The lying is ratcheting up: now it is being proposed that no-one may enter any public- or enclosed space without wearing a mask.
You do not have to be Einstein to see that this is a fascist play to wipe out the small independent trader operating from a high street outlet. All the Supermarkets up their home delivery capabilities, but small independent traders are dependent on drones buying and putting on useless masks to use their stores. SARS-CoV2 is 1000 times smaller than the pore size of masks, so it will get through quite happily.
It is about as useful as saying ‘But I used a condom’ when you bought a pack of previously stapled-through rubbers. It won’t work, it is a waste of time, it is a waste of money. But idiots like the Head of the Royal Society have sold their morals by saying that those who refuse to wear masks should be treated like drink drivers. In my opinion, that moron should be treated like a mentally subnormal cretin and the Nobel Foundation should be told not to reward cretins in future…..
I think violence is going to come, simply because rational argument is getting nowhere.
Violence is what happens when rational debate falls to the ground.
The big question is whether the fascists WANT violence.
If they do, it says they have planned for it and have contingencies to benefit from it.
It is time we started asking ourselves what those plans involve and what their contingencies entail.
It will not be pleasant, I do not think, but better to see the enemy in their most repulsive true light…….
Has the penny dropped yet? Your government is not your friend.
Have a good day!
