For months, we’ve been led to believe there’s been a state of emergency and that we’re facing a serious pandemic the likes of which could have killed more than half a million people – but both these ignorantly-held beliefs are untrue. New legislation has been introduced to deal specifically with the pandemic, not even passing through parliament with a vote, without a clear remit or scope is reliant on a relentless stream of monotonous propagandist government slogans for its justification. The Civil Contingencies Act 2004, which covers serious threats to the British people, would have been a much more acceptable and democratic instrument to use.
The world of today is a fundamentally unnatural and anti-human one, yet even the public are too docile to say and do what they know is right.Christopher J. Wilkinson
We’ve seen food shortages in the supermarkets, a PPE scandal in the NHS and care homes, the worst economic contraction in three centuries, mass redundancies and job cuts, and even then the invisible conditions such as mental illness remain invisible – if not to the people, then at least to the government. People have lost social contact with friends, even with members of their own families. The world of today is a fundamentally unnatural and anti-human one, yet even the public are too docile to say and do what they know is right. Rather than waking up to reality or protesting the state, they’re wearing muzzles disguised as face masks and remain in subdued silence. Nowhere near the predicted number of fatalities have emerged, nor are likely to as herd immunity increases over time. The real crisis has been the one of self-belief and public confidence.
If coronavirus was such a threat to the health and wellbeing of the people, why did the British government not declare a state of emergency in March?Christopher J. Wilkinson
The last time a state of emergency was invoked was during the three-day week in early 1974. If coronavirus was such a threat to the health and wellbeing of the people, why did the British government not declare a state of emergency in March? I suggest it is because they know that this ‘emergency’ is a total deception.
