DO the government want us dead? Sometimes it seems like it. If they don’t get us in the longer term through forcing us into freezing-cold homes amid a bout of hyperinflation, they might get us sooner.
In November last year, Macmillan Cancer Support estimated that about 50,000 people had missed cancer diagnoses since the imposition of the first lockdown. Given the effort expended on the ‘booster’ campaign in December – and thus redirection of GPs’ energies to this end – the number will have risen. To label it a scandal would be to underplay its severity.
Of course, while the media covers the death of ‘antivaxxers’ with glee, it remains more tight-lipped about those whose lives were cut short by officialdom’s Covid monomania. Accounts of a young father of two who couldn’t get an MRI scan and died of cancer or a 27-year-old fobbed off by doctors who found out too late that she had an aggressive form of cancer only scratch the surface of the pain and suffering caused.
Add to this the range of health problems left undiscovered and untreated due to people’s unwillingness, or perhaps inability, to get to seek appropriate medical help and you have all the makings of a medical disaster.
Some of the damage will take longer to manifest. Mental health issues can take years to play out. The nation, already partial to a tipple, has upped its booze intake to cope with it all. A few cirrhotic livers constitute a suitable sacrifice to make on the altar of Covid-19, appeasing the coronavirus gods.
As Covid morphs into little more than a glorified cold, one might expect this almighty backlog to be at the forefront of the government’s mind. Apparently not. Instead, the cult Covidians in power plan to make it a whole lot worse.
This will be done by firing tens of thousands of NHS staff who are not vaccinated. As of writing, up to 80,000 staff (6 per cent of the NHS workforce) are facing the sack as a result of defending their bodily autonomy. Yesterday in Parliament Boris Johnson repeated three times, in face of questioning by Mark Harper, Sir Desmond Swayne and Esther McVey, that he would not be revoking these mandates.
Yet a huge proportion of these will have naturally-acquired antibodies from prior infection: the gold standard of immunity. This is a point so superbly made by Dr Steve James to Sajid Javid the other week, and is, I imagine, one reason behind much of the wider population’s so-called ‘vaccine hesitancy’.
Not for the first time, the government are trying to shore up an utterly illogical stance. On the one hand, we must do everything to protect ‘our NHS’. On the other, they will sack tens of thousands of those ‘angels on wards’, undermining the failing system’s ability to function. Once it is overwhelmed, perhaps another lockdown will be all the more easily introduced.
More broadly, as the government continue to assert that Covid restrictions will be wound down, how can they still insist on mandatory vaccination for a group with likely the highest amount of antibodies in the first place? If we are being told that we are now coming to a point where we must ‘learn to live with the virus’, firing those who are saying loud and clearly that they are doing just that is somewhere approaching the definition of insanity.
What we are witnessing, one must presume, is the inability of government to admit a wrongdoing. If they were to retreat on the patent absurdity of mandatory vaccination, the whole rotten edifice erected to support the society-breaking policies of the last two years would begin to come tumbling down.
Not that it isn’t happening already. The only question that remains is to what extent the government will continue to persist in the enforcement of policies based on the back of lies and half-baked analyses. The government shied away from mandatory vaccination of the entire population (at least for now), but cannot back down on what they have already mandated: they cannot abide losing face.
Anybody who is not suffering from brain-rot, or who is a shareholder in Pfizer or AstraZeneca, realises the game is up and that the pandemic is over. However, in making themselves authors of this hellscape, those in power threaten to be undone by making the same admission, and so they will insist on such ill-conceived policies.
The whole rotten game was instituted to ‘protect the NHS’. Now they’re sacking NHS staff in their thousands. Along with the idiot modelling and the rampant partying at No 10, only the most credulous among us can continue believing in such blatant mistruths.
