Governments now know the economic, social, health and educational costs of full Covid-19 lockdowns scar too deeply
The past three months have been a global experiment to test whether modern economies built on social interaction are compatible with methods for tackling a pandemic that haven’t moved on much since the Black Death.
The results are now in. Lockdowns are toxic for a world in which people travel to work on buses or commuter trains, spend eight hours with their colleagues at the office, spend their lunch hour doing a bit of shopping, and head off in the evening to the pub, the theatre or the football.
Britain imposed severe restrictions towards the end of March. By the end of April, according to initial estimates by the Office for National Statistics, the economy had shrunk by 25%. If anything, that will prove to be optimistic because of the difficulty in getting data from companies forced to close.
Little by little, restrictions are being lifted but life is not going to return to normal while face masks are obligatory on public transport, diners have to stay two metres, or even a metre apart in restaurants and customers are discouraged to browse in shops.
Recovery will be even slower in the event of a second wave of infections, something the history of past pandemics suggests is probable. Covid-19 looks to be the sort of virus that sticks around. The number of new cases has been on a downward trend for weeks as a result of the severest curbs on the UK population ever imposed in peacetime and the arrival of warmer weather, but what happens in the autumn when restrictions have been further eased and the temperature starts to drop? If the trend is reversed, does the government lock down the economy a second time?
The answer is almost certainly not, even though the possibility spooked financial markets last week. Share prices crashed in the early stages of the crisis because investors grasped that measures taken to control the pandemic would result in much weaker corporate profits. Markets subsequently rallied fast because the tentative easing of lockdown restrictions raised hopes of a V-shaped recession. They then had second thoughts after an increase in new Covid-19 cases in a number of US states, mainly in the south. The city of Houston in Texas is mulling the possibility of again ordering people to stay in their homes. A partial shutdown has been imposed in Beijing after the city reported its first cases of Covid-19 in almost two months.
This is likely to be the template for the months ahead: a targeted, localised approach rather than a blanket ban on activity. Political leaders are going to be wary of reimposing full lockdowns, and they are right to be.
For a start, it has become clear that there is no such thing as “the science” when it comes to Covid-19. Immunologists have different views about infection rates and possible mortality outcomes in the same way that monetarists and Keynesians differ over economics.
Ministers felt they had no option but to adopt a safety-first approach when the crisis broke in March because there was a genuine risk that an uncontrolled pandemic would overwhelm the NHS. Every person who had contracted the virus was infecting three others.
Our Goverment caused thousands of deaths with their illegal ‘lockdown’ due to lack of treatment. Then they claim these are ‘covid-19 positive’ deaths to boost their statistics.
Our Government control and manipulate these mortality statistics.
Our Government will cause many many more deaths as their actions have made the NHS Waiting List over 10 million people now and many will die waiting.
Our Government will cause many further deaths as vital cancer screening and treatment is not happening and there will be many suicides of people broken by the illegal ‘lockdown’.
Our Government ban us from seeing our ill and dying family and friends in hospital and then limits numbers for funerals which then have to ‘social distance’.
Our Government will only allow us to see family and friends outdoors, under their silly confusing rules, ‘socially distanced’ of course.
Our Government pointlessly has caused our healthy economy to plunge by 20.4% in April because of their insane illegal ‘lockdown’.
Our Government has used our police force that we fund to enforce their illegal actions and make them fine us if we do not comply.
Our Government has destroyed people’s lives with their illegal actions, jobs are lost, businesses ruined, children are deprived of their education all for nothing as even Professor Neil Ferguson was forced to admit.
Our Government are now forcing us to wear masks on public transport even though this has no benefit and will give us health problems.
Our Government is forcing us to do absurd ‘social distancing’ which has no scientific evidence but just destroys businesses and makes our lives a misery.
Our Government allows ‘social distancing’ rules to be broken by protesters that are furthering their divide and rule aims.
Our Government is forcing our children to ‘socially distance’ and be frightened if they do get to go to school, which will give them mental health problems.
Our Government has removed all enjoyment from our lives such as holidays, watching sport and even going out for a meal or a drink.
Our Government is illegally tracking and tracing us based upon fake tests.
Our Government illegally took our Rights and Freedoms literally over night and are only slowly giving them back and giving us endless, silly, insulting, confusing rules.
Our Government is now plotting to have regional illegal ‘lockdowns’ and has given Local Authorities £300 million for this.
Our Government is plotting a ‘second wave’ of so-called ‘covid-19’ and has already commenced the brainwashing programme for this.
Our Government is plotting with Gavi and Gates etc. for us to all to have a lethal vaccine before they will allow our lives to return to any sort of normality.
Our Government has given Gavi and Gates hundreds of millions of pounds for these vaccines and has promised many more hundreds of millions of our money to them.
Our Government has used psychological warfare against the People right from the start of this ‘pandemic’ with their Behavioural Insights (brainwashing) Team using the Main Stream Media and even the 77th Brigade from the army to control the narrative and generate fear.
Our Government, however, now need to be frightened themseves as the People are waking up, are not happy and know they are to blame!
Please support our legal action against this Government of Occupation, let’s stop them and take our Rights, Freedoms and Democracy back NOW!
