The number of eligible people upholding their right to self-determination and bodily autonomy by refusing the vaccination makes me hopeful for libertarian values. As with the flu jab, you should only take a vaccine without coercion and only with your expressed consent. I genuinely hope for those who have already received the vaccine that itContinue reading “Authoritarian parallels with historical maritime law exposed by independent”
Tonight, I have assumed stewardship of the Independent Libertarians UK association from Dan Liddicott after a handover meeting. This is a group that has great potential to build the future of British libertarianism. It is a movement that requires the varied skills of its members to bring about change for the better, and I’d encourageContinue reading “Christopher J. Wilkinson assumes stewardship of Independent Libertarians UK”
The January to September and December UK mortality rates of each year since 2001, as seen in the ONS data attached, indicate that lockdown was not a justifiable policy response to combat the virus (https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/birthsdeathsandmarriages/deaths/bulletins/monthlymortalityanalysisenglandandwales/september2020, https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/birthsdeathsandmarriages/deaths/bulletins/monthlymortalityanalysisenglandandwales/december2020). The mortality rate is at the highest level it’s been at since 2008-09, not 1918-19 as many of theContinue reading “Dubious COVID mortality claims scrutinised by independent”
The general direction the Johnson government has taken with COVID has been very unsuitable. It was claimed in March 2020 that the aim of the lockdown policy was to protect the NHS. It was implied that lives would be saved as a result of protecting the NHS, though it was never specified how many couldContinue reading “Independent addresses COVID challenges as government handling faces criticism”

It is worth noting that the Analysis spreadsheet in the dataset mentions that the statistics include instances ‘where COVID-19 or suspected COVID-19 was mentioned anywhere on the death certificate, including in combination with other health conditions’; thisContinue reading “Analysis of ONS COVID statistics for 2020 provided by independent”

I can announce today that I intend to stand as an independent candidate for the upcoming Staffordshire County Council election in the seat of Lichfield City North, and for the Lichfield City by-election in the Stowe ward. These elections come at a critical time, not just for Lichfield or Staffordshire but for the country. TheContinue reading “Christopher J. Wilkinson announces candidature for 2021 Staffordshire County Council Election and Lichfield Stowe by-election”
If masks work, why the need for social distancing? If social distancing works, why the need for masks? If both of those work, why the need for lockdowns? If the lockdowns work, why have we needed more than one of them when the great majority of people have been following the rules? If the governmentContinue reading “Logic of government COVID policies smashed by independent”
The free market should determine what businesses set up in commercial areas, not local governments. The council should not have been in a position to decide one way or the other about a proposed takeaway on the site of an existing cake shop. …the issue of parking has crept into the situation; incidentally, this issueContinue reading “Debate on takeaway proposal critiqued by independent”
