This is the penultimate part of Paul Weston’s series of articles intended for those who have not yet heard the truth about the disaster caused by the response to the Covid non-pandemic. You can read the introduction and Part 1 here. Click on the numbers for Parts 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8.
LOCKDOWN was never referred to as ‘lockdown’ in March 2020. We were ‘asked’ to stay at home for a few weeks, thus allowing our health services to get up to speed without being swamped. As we now know, a few weeks became months became 2021.
I simply cannot believe this was not planned. The logistics involved in keeping a country afloat after closing down the economy are extremely complicated. Months – if not years – of planning must have gone into it.
One of the strangest things about the first lockdown in the UK was the enforcement date of March 26, one week after the government declared on March 19 that Covid-19 was being downgraded from a High Consequence Infectious Disease (HCID). The reason given for the downgrade was a low mortality rate . . .
Anyway, the world locked down. When it became apparent the lockdowns were going to stay in place until a miracle vaccine was discovered, the governments promised us that detailed cost/benefit analyses would be conducted. They never were. But they very much should have been.
The principal reason they should is all to do with deaths. Closing down the country also meant partially closing down health services to non-Covid patients. Inculcating fear meant many people were too scared to go anywhere near a hospital. Patients with cancer and heart problems stayed away, voluntarily or involuntarily. Many died as a result.
On July 19 2020, the Daily Telegraph published an article based on Office for National Statistics figures claiming that 200,000 people could die (mid to long term) in the UK due to lockdowns. Similar figures were published in countries all around the world.
Here is a brutal truth. Governments which locked down essentially stated the following: ‘We are going to murder XYZ thousand people. We undertake this crime because we think we might save other people from Covid-19 deaths.’
Even more remarkably, the death rates were completely normal before lockdowns were initiated. Lockdowns were not the forced result of having to deal with large numbers of deaths. Rather, large numbers of deaths were the forced result of government-ordained lockdowns. It is difficult to understand why our politicians are not locked up for life after successful prosecution for crimes against humanity.
There was a world of lockdown difference between middle-class families and working-class families. Large houses with gardens afforded relaxation and contentment for the middle class, especially so with furlough scheme deposits pinging into their bank accounts on the first of every month. Essentials and non-essentials were delivered to their door by men in vans. Food miraculously appeared on their local Waitrose shelves.
Above the middle class came the political class who, as we now know, partied hard and often. Above them came the billionaire class, who jetted around the world whenever and wherever they wanted.
The working class were not as fortunate. Many found themselves unable to satisfy the government’s furlough scheme conditions and were rendered destitute as a result. Many, including those with small children, lived in cramped flats without gardens. If they tried to escape for a walk in the local park, they encountered violently hostile policemen who were ‘only following orders’.
The most glaring example of the whole lockdown hypocrisy/uselessness could be found in the realm of supermarkets, where workers toiled away for the entirety of lockdown. Supermarket workers in the Western world were exposed to 80 per cent plus of local humanity thronging their stores. Supermarket workers were the ultimate Disease Control Group. Did thousands of them keel over and die from Covid-19? No, they did not. Did thousands of them become very ill? No, they did not.
Conclusion. Lockdowns could never have worked anyway, courtesy of the capability of an airborne virus to get anywhere and everywhere. Lockdowns were completely unnecessary, as evidenced by the good health of supermarket workers exposed for months on end to the massed ranks of humanity. Finally, lockdowns weren’t even lockdowns, due to the servant class frantically dashing about in attendance to the privileged class.
