Nanny Has Cancelled Christmas


 

Nanny has cancelled Christmas on the basis of a fake graph.


Here are the questions that need to be asked, and answered:

1 What is the current false positive rate in Pillar 2? 

2 Are false positives being excluded from the test results? 

3 Are positive cases being retested? 

4 What is the cycle rate for testing?

5 What percentage of confirmed positive cases are asymptomatic?

6 What evidence is there of a second wave?

Media Tries To Force Nanny Into Second Lockdown

 


Yesterday, I wrote that thanks to a Tweet from an idiot on "Independent SAGE", the media ran scare stories about a second National Lockdown.

The idiot subsequently retracted his tweet, and media were forced into a temporary retreat.

However, today the media have come back guns blazing citing "sources" from the real SAGE saying that a two week lockdown is coming.

Nanny, is currently running scared and will be easily pushed into a second lockdown by the media who are intent on wrecking the country.

As if by magic up pops Hancock, more or less saying that there will be another lockdown!

Just remember folks, local lockdowns and "restrictions" (when applied to large swathes of the country) are in effect a National Lockdown!

Lockdowns are the least effective tool against an endemic virus, all they do is kick the can down the road. 

Like it or not we will have to live with this.

Independent SAGE and Media Publish Fake News Designed To Scaremonger


 

Yesterday evening Anthony Costello a member of "Independent SAGE" (a group of left wing activists doing their best to bring down the government) posted the above statement on Twitter.

The  media, without checking the facts, jumped on it and published all manner of lurid stories eg The Mail:

Chris Whitty 'wants a new two-week NATIONAL lockdown and true UK cases are as high as 38,000-a-day', ex-WHO expert who sits on Independent SAGE panel claims

This morning, less than 12 hours after posting that tweet, Costello retracted it!

It is disgraceful that Costello posted an unsubstantiated rumour, and disgusting that the media ran with it without first checking the facts!

If Costello has any honour he will apologise and stand down from the pseudo SAGE.

Lockdown has caused many people series problems with their mental health, to deliberately scare them like this is inexcusable!

Nanny Has Driven Us To Drink

 

Unsurprisingly Nanny's lockdown has driven the UK to drink.

Allegedly the number of people drinking at 'high risk' levels has doubled to almost 8.5million since February, according to the Royal College of Psychiatrists.

Needless to say, Nanny and the media are getting their collective knickers into a twist over the potential knock on effects to the national religion of the NHS which, remember, we are meant to die for to protect it!

Therefore we may expect (sadly) many lurid headlines about the negative consequences of drinking, and for Hancock and the dying embers of PHE to come up with tedious and intrusive rules (eg 10PM curfew) to cut our drinking. 

Remember, if these figures really are true then this alleged rise was caused by Nanny herself!

Edinburgh University Bans David Hume

I am sad, and pissed off, to see that my alma mater Edinburgh University has fallen under the false religion of wokeism. It has banned David Hume, and renamed the David Hume Tower 40 George Square.

As per the zealots:

"Equality, Diversity and Inclusion - an update

An update on the work of the University’s Equality & Diversity Committee and its Race Equality and Anti-Racist Sub-committee.

The work of the University’s Equality & Diversity Committee and its Race Equality and Anti-Racist Sub-committee has continued over the summer. It has been further energised following the killing in May of George Floyd and the ongoing campaigning by the Black Lives Matter movement. Our Race Equality and Anti-Racist Action Plan is accelerating and amplifying our efforts.

It is important that campuses, curricula and communities reflect both the University’s contemporary and historical diversity and engage with its institutional legacy across the world. For this reason the University has taken the decision to re-name – initially temporarily until a full review is completed – one of the buildings in the Central Area campus.

From the start of the new academic year the David Hume Tower will be known as 40 George Square.

The use of the building will also change: a shortage of study space because of the social distancing requirements means that the building is being re-purposed to provide additional student study space for 20/21.

The interim decision has been taken because of the sensitivities around asking students to use a building named after the 18th century philosopher whose comments on matters of race, though not uncommon at the time, rightly cause distress today.

This is ahead of the more detailed review of the University’s links to the past in the context of meaningful action and repair; this work is ongoing and is considering many other issues beyond the naming of buildings. It is a substantial exercise of research, engagement and reflection, upon which we will be able to adopt refreshed and appropriate policies on a range of issues such as the future naming of buildings as well as how we should commemorate our history more generally. The city of Edinburgh is also undertaking a similar review and the University is in discussions with the civic leaders about subjects which affect us both."

As per the more intelligent Stanford:

"Generally regarded as one of the most important philosophers to write in English, David Hume (1711–1776) was also well known in his own time as an historian and essayist. A master stylist in any genre, his major philosophical works—A Treatise of Human Nature (1739–1740), the Enquiries concerning Human Understanding (1748) and concerning the Principles of Morals (1751), as well as his posthumously published Dialogues concerning Natural Religion (1779)—remain widely and deeply influential.

Although Hume’s more conservative contemporaries denounced his writings as works of scepticism and atheism, his influence is evident in the moral philosophy and economic writings of his close friend Adam Smith. Kant reported that Hume’s work woke him from his “dogmatic slumbers” and Jeremy Bentham remarked that reading Hume “caused the scales to fall” from his eyes. Charles Darwin regarded his work as a central influence on the theory of evolution. The diverse directions in which these writers took what they gleaned from reading him reflect both the richness of their sources and the wide range of his empiricism. Today, philosophers recognize Hume as a thoroughgoing exponent of philosophical naturalism, as a precursor of contemporary cognitive science, and as the inspiration for several of the most significant types of ethical theory developed in contemporary moral philosophy."

These revisionist bastards are coming for everything, they need to be stopped! 

One thing is for certain, Edinburgh University will not be getting a penny from me when they send on their regular begging letters!

The Rise of The Covid Marshalls

 


Nanny is running scared of another drubbing from the hysterical media over a non existent second wave.

As such she is doing everything in her power to look busy and alert, by banning gatherings of more than six people, imposing a lockdown on Bolton, considering imposing a national curfew and most absurdly of all deploying Covid Marshalls.

The problem with using the rise in cases as a basis for rule by diktat, is that it is very shaky ground indeed:

-the rise in cases is because more people are being tested

-false positives abound within the system

-the rise does not equate to a massive jump in hospital admissions

-the cases appear to affect mainly those classified as "young", people who were not tested during the height of the pandemic

-many cases may well be false positive

Hey hoh though, let's not let facts get in the way of another lockdown!

Needless to say there are those who are already salivating at the thought of making money out of the Covid marshall wheeze.


 

As I have already noted, the IFR is 0.1%, on a par with a bad outbreak of flu.

We have been asked to save the NHS, yet in doing so this has had and will have a cost

-thousands of elderly lives dead from Covid

-thousands of lives re non covid issues eg cancers not identified

-kids' education 

-the economy has been deliberately crashed

-the mental health of thousands has been damaged

-there has been an increase in domestic violence 

Question: what kind of "health service" asks for such a sacrifice? 

Answer: one that isn't fit for purpose!

Yet Nanny continues to fantasise about moonshots (daily Covid tests for all) and Covid Marshalls.

Meanwhile Sweden has managed to flatten its curve without a lockdown, by simply following social distancing and practising good hygiene (no masks!). 

Ironically Sweden is still on the quarantine list, for Nanny to lift the quarantine would be an admission that here lockdown policy was in error, and she never admits to making mistakes!

The BBC's Scaremongering Reporting of Covid Cases


Last night's BBC News at 10 worked itself up into breathless excitement over the 3,000 or so positive Covid cases.

However, what it failed to report or even suggest that it asked were the following:

- how many tests were conducted

- the percentage of the tests conducted over the last few days/weeks which were positive (in order to determine a trend)

- the number of cases that were asymptomatic

- confirmation that all the tests carried out used the same procedures, and thresholds, for declaring "positive"

- rate of increase, if any, of hospital admissions 

If you don't report the above facts, or at least ask the questions and state that you have asked the questions, simply reporting a headline of 3,000 "cases" is meaningless and irresponsible reporting!

Even PHE has finally admitted that procedures, to prevent false positives, need to be improved!

Guidance for procedures to be implemented in laboratories to provide assurance of positive SARS-CoV-2 RNA results during periods of low prevalence.

The Blunder That Caused The Global Lockdown (Sweden Being The Exception)


 
A confusion in the USA between IFR and CFR rates have led the hysterical media and politicians around the world down the wrong path, and needlessly killed thousands, damaged mental health, set back childrens' eduction, caused an increase in domestic abuse and suicides and crashed the global economy.
 
As per Malcolm Kendrick a GP in the NHS: 
In February, US Covid guru Anthony Fauci predicted the virus was ‘akin to a severe flu’ and would therefore kill around 0.1 percent of people. Then fatality rate predictions were somehow mixed up to make it look ten times WORSE.

When you strip everything else out, the reason for lockdown comes from a single figure: one percent. This was the prediction that Covid, if left unchecked, would kill around one percent of us.

I don’t expect you or I to get this sort of thing right. But I bloody well expect the experts to do so. They didn’t. They got their IFR and CFR mixed up and multiplied the likely impact of Covid by a factor of ten.

Unsurprisingly the Imperial Model comes in for flack as well, as it used the wrong IFR.

Sadly, it will be very hard to get the media and the politicians to admit that they got this wrong!

UN Confirms That There Are Two Genders

It is a tad puzzling that the UN in their tweet chose to use that particular extract of the UN Secretary General's speech to young women at a town hall meeting, given that a lot of what he said was in fact perfectly reasonable.

Therefore why use the part that makes him sound unhinged?

Nanny Hates Sweden - Why She Won't Lift The Quarantine

It's been announced that there are no changes to the list of travel corridor countries to England. Normal cut-off is 20 cases / 100k in last 7 days.

All these European countries on the quarantine-exempt list except one. Can you spot which?

Perhaps @grantshapps can explain why. pic.twitter.com/t4oF1zglXo

My sympathies to the good people of Sweden who, despite the fact that their death rate is below Nanny's 20 per 100K limit for allowing unquarantined travel, are still on Nanny's Naughty Step and have to quarantine if they (or returning British tourists) enter the UK from Sweden.

This seems a tad perverse, given that Portugal is still allowed quarantine free travel even though it has breached Nanny's 20 death threshold.

Why does Nanny not want to allow Swedes to come her?

It is because if she does, it would be a tacit admission that Sweden has succeeded in bringing Covid under control without the need for lockdown.

Around the world national Nannies, egged on by an ever hysterical media (in the UK we had Sly News and Piers Morgan), followed each other like sheep into various types of lockdowns some (eg South Africa - which banned booze - and Australia - which arrests pregnant women for daring to post anti lockdown articles on Facebook) were more extreme than others.

Sweden, on the other hand, although it pursued a policy of social distancing, cleanliness and non family hugging eschewed masks and lockdowns.

The result being the Sweden was not decimated by Covid and, as can be seen from the figures, is coming out of it without the need for lockdown.

Needless to say this makes Nanny look rather foolish, and Nanny doesn't like to be made to look foolish. Hence she will not publicly acknowledge that Sweden got it right, and she got it wrong.

As and when this is behind us, and cooler heads prevail and they take a look at the post lockdown world, it will become woefully apparent that the lockdown "cure" was worse than the disease viz:

  • Nanny turned the NHS into a state religion, for which she condemned thousands to die in order to protect it (what kind of health service is it where you have to die in order to protect it?)
  • People have died, and will die, from untreated non Covid related illnesses (eg 400-500 people die every day in the UK from cancer, that rate will rise because of lockdown)
  • Thousands of elderly people were needlessly infected as Nanny cleared the hospitals of the elderly (in order to save the NHS!)
  • Depression, mental illness and suicides have risen
  • Domestic violence has risen
  • Childrens' eduction has been severely damaged
  • The economy has been trashed.

That's why Nanny dare not admit that Sweden got it right!

BBC Renames The Second World War


 The BBC news is currently doing a series of mini segments in their 10PM show relating the tales of various presenters' relatives during the Second World War.

Fair enough and perfectly reasonable.

However, for reasons best known to the BBC, they have renamed the Second World War as "The People's War"!

Will someone please tell the BBC that people have been fighting in wars long before and after the Second World War (eg the First World War, the Korean War, The Falklands War, the Gulf War etc).

Until the Terminators take over, people will continue to fight in and die in wars!

Back To School - Nanny Bans Covid Jokes

 


My sympathies to the poor little sods returning to school in the the coming days.

Not only do they face the stress of returning to an environment that they haven't seen since March, they will also face the transference of their parents' and teachers' own stresses and anxieties.

Case in point as reported by ITV, where kids risk being excluded for “malicious coughing” or making “inappropriate” jokes about the coronavirus pandemic, some schools have warned.

The new behavioural guidelines have been issued to parents as many schools prepare to welcome children back into their classrooms in England this week.

The Ark Alexandra Academy in Hastings, east Sussex, has set out a list of “coronavirus red lines” which will result in fixed-term exclusions for pupils should they be breached.

These include “deliberate or malicious” coughs or sneezes, “humorous, inappropriate comments or statements” related to Covid-19 and “purposeful physical contact with any other person”.

In a letter to parents in August, Jerome Scafe, network associate principal, said: 

“Any student that needs to have a fixed-term exclusion during the pandemic, will not return to main circulation until a risk assessment and we can be assured that the student will adhere to all our expectations.”

Good luck kids, you'll need it!
