The truth about this Covid driven Agenda 21 or Great Reset is slowly dawning on people

Lockdown Sceptics stirs up Labour with its summary of the Bath pub confrontation and in not even mentioning what the whole business has also done to the Tories, shows a bias which is clearly out of place in 2021.

It is NOT just Labour which is disillusioned, it is Toryland as well, much as that sits badly with the silent blue army.  Here is what LDS wrote [no url, it was an emailing]:

Rod Humphris, landlord of The Raven in Bath, to throw Keir Starmer out of his pub this lunchtime because the Labour leader has done so little to oppose the lockdown policy. MailOnline has more.

Sir Keir Starmer was thrown out of a pub today after being confronted by a Labour-supporting landlord furious that he supported the lockdown which had closed his business for months.

In astonishing scenes in Bath today, Rod Humphris, the lockdown-sceptic landlord of the Raven, had to be held back by the Opposition Leader’s security guards as he demanded he leave.

The incident was captured on camera by reporters amid a visit to the city to support West of England metro mayoral candidate Dan Norris ahead of the forthcoming elections.

Mr Humphris had clashed with Sir Keir outside the Raven, accusing him of having ‘failed to be the opposition’ by supporting the lockdown and backing plans to make schoolchildren wear masks.

As the politician paused the landlord waved a piece of paper at him, saying: “Do you know what the average age of death with Covid is?

“According to the Office for National statistics it’s 82 years and three months. The average age of death normally? Eighty one years.

“Do you understand we have f***ed our economy because old people are dying?”

As Sir Keir tried to walk away he continued: “No, no I came here to speak to this man not your security.

“You have failed me. I have been a Labour voter my entire life. You have failed to be the opposition.

“You have failed to ask whether lockdown was functioning. Do you understand? Thousands of people have died because you have failed to do your job and ask the real questions.”

Well done Mr Humphris. You speak for millions of lifelong Labour voters.

Plus Tory voters, he failed to write.  Moving on, not sure how to embed this type of video which Ripper here provides:


... but we’re at the stage where many people, e.g. Roger Hodgkinson, either knew for a long time and now go public or else people wake up and go into print for themselves.

So even though the message, with new insights as well, reiterates many things the reader already knows, the very process of various people now discovering and/or speaking is such an important one, and the good thing to my mind is the old adage about no one being more vehement than the new discoverer.

This lady is one of the decades old knowers, Kassie Troy: 

This angers a lot of people about the #COVID19 measures: intrinsic evil is presented as a good. Masks are good; distance is good; quarantine is good; hunkering indoors is good; abandoning the elderly is good; not educating the young is good...whereas in fact all of that is evil!

In Russia, it was called the Samizdat, as readers know - little voices like ours plugging away until falling away, new ones taking their place, until it becomes a counter-culture.


06:10: Have just watched the video and need now to go through it again, summarising in print the main points as a sort of Hodgkinson Declaration.  Idea is when someone outdoors quotes rubbish at you, you can take this out of your pocket and quote from it.  It will take me till late afternoon to write up.

Sheffield Hallam's Gain Is Surrey Police's Loss...

As students and staff contemplate returning to campus after a long time away, I am moving in the opposite direction. After 13 years as an academic, in love with my subject and with teaching, and in the midst of a pandemic, I’m leaving – to join the police and contribute to society in a different way.
So declares Eddie Tembo. But ... why?
As a black academic in a UK university, I became accustomed to defending myself to students and sometimes to staff. “Yes, I really do have a doctorate.” “No, it was not awarded to me to fill a quota.” At early career conferences I encountered disbelief that I could have published a book.

Well, yes, and how much of this is fallout from the sort of affirmative action projects and schemes that the progressives have demanded? 

I’ve had painful experiences at the hands of former colleagues, including the use of racist language and the overt propagation of racist stereotypes.

Such as? We get no examples in the article. We never do, do we, Reader..? 

More subtle racism was harder to deal with, such as sidelining (always hard to prove) or the use of strategic appointments – a modern variant of the old boys’ club – to fill vacancies.

Ah, yes, the old 'I can't prove it's racism but that's what it must be' gambit. But ... why didn't you say anything at the time?

What I perhaps should have done was to report every incident to my line managers. Instead, I remained largely silent, confiding only in colleagues, friends and family. It is hard to say why it was difficult to speak up. Concern about being asked to provide tangible evidence of racism, not being supported, or simply being labelled a troublemaker by a management body that was far from ethnically diverse were all factors.

So you'd have fely better complaining to others of your own race? But we're the racists, not you? 

There has been some recognition of my work. I gained fellowship status of the Higher Education Academy. I was nominated for or won student-led awards: best dissertation supervisor; inspirational teaching; most inspiring lecturer; outstanding personal academic tutor. In 2019 I was shortlisted for a Nottinghamshire Black Achiever’s award.

And that wasn't enough to convince you? 

Despite this I had grown increasingly disillusioned by the lack of diversity and felt more needed to be done – an effort with which I had indicated I was willing to assist.
By leaving? For a 'company' that clearly hasn't done any due diligence into the sort of person they are hiring?

The coup, the trafficking and so on

Thing is - where do we even start?  Patel’s invasion waving-through, Johnson ‘s and Hancock’s lies and inhuman behaviour, the BAME thuggery on the street - which one first?

Let’s go with the sex trafficking at the US southern border.


Fox Nation host Lara Logan said Saturday that the Biden administration’s border polices amount to “subsidizing human trafficking of children and adults.” “We are subsidizing human trafficking of children and adults: men and women,” Logan told Fox News’ “Watters’ World” “The administration uses taxpayer dollars — your money, my money — every taxpayer in America. When they use their funds to transport these kids all over the country and send them into different markets, different areas first to live in for the cartels, different markets for sex trafficking and other cartel activity,” Logan continued.
To my mind, that only partly covers it - if you can, listen to her interview cut short by the host.  What she said was that the kids appear at the border, all say the same thing - there for better education, better life, but then they’re taken out of that authority’s hands for “resettling” throughout the States.

But that’s not what really happened and is happening.  For a start, they were sold by parents.  Then, inside the States, the traffickers take them for you know what.  Big money racket.  And not just kids either.

This is the scene Harris refuses to go there to investigate.  Which brings us back to the coup itself.

Is It 'Justice' You Want, Or Someone With Deep Pockets To Blame?

Sonali Bhattacharyya, a volunteer with the Justice for Belly campaign group, said campaigners were calling for an inquest into her death and a public inquiry to determine if GTR was culpable.
She said: “We’re here today on the first anniversary of Belly Mujinga’s death, united in anger and grief.
“A year on, and her family still have no answers. They still wait for justice.”

But they do have answers. They just aren't the ones they want... 

A lawyer for Mrs Mujinga’s family, Lawrence Davies, said the force had refused to disclose the suspect’s name, preventing them from pursuing a private prosecution and further civil claims.

Because there's no evidence that the supposed incident had anything to do with her death, and a lot - specifically, a negative covid test - that it didn't: 

BTP asked the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) to review the evidence and look into whether there were any further lines of inquiry, but prosecutors ruled out homicide charges.
CCTV footage of the interaction, which lasted around 15 seconds, was said to not show any conclusive evidence a criminal offence took place, while results from a Covid-19 test on March 25 confirmed the suspect had not been infected with the virus.
DNA evidence from Mrs Mujinga’s clothing was inconclusive, while witness accounts did not provide a consistent enough picture to bring charges, according to the CPS.

So what sort of 'justice' is it that you - or more accurately, the leeches battening on to you - want to see, exactly? 

The inner workings of the BMJ and Frank Speech

The inner workings of the BMJ

Below is further information from Distant Relative to Steve's first item here:


This part is the inner workings of the BMJ website:

"Do doctors have to have the covid-19 vaccine? BMJ 2021; 372 doi (Published 29 March 2021)"


Cite this as: BMJ 2021;372:n810 All rapid responses 

Rapid responses are electronic comments to the editor. They enable our users to debate issues raised in articles published on bmj.com. ....

It's from another doctor querying the censorship of Dr. K Polyacova by the BMJ:  "Re: Do doctors have to have the covid-19 vaccine?" 

Dear Editor, 

I was very saddened to see the removal of the Rapid Response by Dr Polyakova [1]. The letter was accepted for publication on 2nd April 2021. All responses are checked by BMJ editors before publication. 

It is therefore perplexing to know why this letter was acceptable prior to being shared on public media, yet 10 days later it was 'being used to spread misinformation'. I did not see any misinformation in the letter. Only a heartfelt description of staff concerned and under pressure. 

The original article [2] barely mentions that the vaccines available currently involve novel technologies under temporary licence, with phase 3 trials not due to be completed until 2023. This is very different from Hepatitis B vaccine which has a long track record of safety.

No, 'We' Don't, Actually...

...because the vast majority of people are well aware of the dangers inherent in deep water.

Emergency services were called to the scene, at Goit Stock waterfall, Cullingworth, on Tuesday night following reports of someone in the water.
“Emergency services attended, including fire service, ambulance and underwater rescue teams, and recovered a body from the water," said a West Yorkshire Police spokesperson.
“There are not thought to be any suspicious circumstances and a file has been prepared for the coroner.”

Happens every spell of warm weather. But SOMETHING MUST BE DONE! 

Councillor Naveed Riaz, of the Bingley Rural ward, gave his condolences to the boy’s friends and family, calling the incident a “tragedy”.
Cllr Riaz added that people should take “extra precaution” when visiting areas like Goit Stock, and said that people must learn from the incident.

Learn what, exactly? 

“Last year, there were a number of deaths, across the UK, from drowning.
“I think we all need to learn from this, we should take extra precaution and we all need to think sensibly.”

I don't. Do you, Reader? 

“We have to ensure that we act responsibly. At our next meeting, after the elections, we are hoping to campaign for more signs in the area, and we will see if we can work with the landlord, in the hope that we can implement some more safety measures at Goit Stock, which will hopefully stop things like this from happening.”

Well, there's the triumph of hope over expectation, because they haven't managed it yet... 

Councillor Paul Sullivan, also of the Bingley Rural ward, added that the teenager’s death represents a “tragic loss”.
He echoed some of the same concerns raised by Cllr Riaz, arguing that more safety measures need to be put in place in the area.

Unless you post a lifeguard every 50 feet along every water source in the country, these incidents will continue to happen. It's less a 'tragic loss' than a culling of the unfit.

Of racism, reason and reality

Sackers made the comment that Enoch Powell's RofB speech was deliberately provocative, thereby precluding any meaningful dialogue at the time. 

The general principle of efficacious dialogue is a sound one and Sackers is forever pursuing such a thing:

Well done.  The question then is how far this filters down through the 'black community' in order to defuse potentially provocative situations:

"We Stopped Counting It, So It's Gone Down..."

A year ago, as the coronavirus began to spread across Maryland, Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby stopped prosecuting drug possession, prostitution, minor traffic violations and other low-level offenses, a move aimed at curbing Covid-19's spread behind bars.
That shift — repeated by prosecutors in many other cities — didn’t just reduce jail populations. In Baltimore, nearly all categories of crime have since declined...


...confirming to Mosby what she and criminal justice experts have argued for years: Crackdowns on quality-of-life crimes are not necessary for stopping more serious crime.

Wait, what? 

On Friday, Mosby announced that she was making her pandemic experiment permanent, saying Baltimore — for decades notorious for runaway violence and rough policing — had become a case study in criminal justice reform.

It's a case study in something, all right! 

Researchers at Johns Hopkins University found sharp reductions in calls to police complaining about drugs and prostitution, she said.

Because if they aren't going to do anything about it, what's the point..?
