Independent addresses COVID challenges as government handling faces criticism

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”

The provisional full year ONS statistics for deaths registered weekly in England and Wales have been released (https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/birthsdeathsandmarriages/deaths/datasets/weeklyprovisionalfiguresondeathsregisteredinenglandandwales).

Logic of government COVID policies smashed by independent

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”

Lichfield MP scorned by independent for supporting COVID vote

There’s an obvious but crucial difference between ‘cases’ and ‘deaths’, and it’s a difference which Lichfield’s MP, Michael Fabricant, seems content in ignoring. ‘Flattening the curve’ never at any point meant flattening the economy, but rather taking the strain off the NHS so that it could deal with cases more steadily. Mr Fabricant is theContinue reading “Lichfield MP scorned by independent for supporting COVID vote”

Independent questions motives behinds mass testing strategy

Staffordshire County Council are looking to recruit people to distribute COVID tests as part of the national rollout. The test is apparently designed to ‘quickly identify people who have the virus but may have no symptoms’. There is no meaningful or substantive evidence to suggest that COVID is unique in being the only symptomless virusContinue reading “Independent questions motives behinds mass testing strategy”

Doubts cast by independent on official COVID narrative

So now ‘health leaders’ in Staffordshire are suggesting people ought to get tested for the coronavirus if they begin experiencing headaches, aches and pains, sore throat, runny nose, sneezing and tiredness. Aren’t they pretty much the same symptoms you get with a regular cough or cold? And if so, what does that suggest to youContinue reading “Doubts cast by independent on official COVID narrative”

Independent criticises Lichfield MP for COVID vaccination stance

On the day the UK enters its second nationwide lockdown, it appears our own Michael Fabricant MP has become an advocate of mass compulsory vaccination saying that ‘as more and more of the population are vaccinated and become immune or less susceptible to COVID-19, we can all begin to return to a more normal life’.Continue reading “Independent criticises Lichfield MP for COVID vaccination stance”

Independent scorns views of Lichfield MP on personal freedoms

No, Mr Fabricant, we are not ‘selfish people’. We’re simply trying to do what’s best for ourselves and our families instead of what’s best for the government. Fortunately, people are now starting to see through the state’s lies. Christopher J. Wilkinson ‘Cases’ are five times higher than they were back in the Spring, yet deathsContinue reading “Independent scorns views of Lichfield MP on personal freedoms”

Coronavirus pseudoscience slammed by independent as measures tighten

Herd immunity is science. Lockdowns and social distancing are a pseudoscience with no historical precedent. There is no proof that what we’ve been asked to do is going to work, yet millions have begged and continue to beg for the government to intensify the measures to totalitarian levels so much so that we’re on ourContinue reading “Coronavirus pseudoscience slammed by independent as measures tighten”
