I’ve wanted to write this post since late March when my own personal alarmed bells went off at the insanity that was happening in the world. Right from the get-go things just didn’t make any sense. Unfortunately far too many people listened and reacted to the ‘opinions’ of a very few people who weren’t basing their statements upon any facts. Now don’t get me wrong, I 100% believe it is EVERYBODY’S right to have opinions, but opinions are just that person’s perspective on how they see and think things are, they are not facts! That said, I now want to offer up some FACTS about this year and this so-called ‘devastating’ epidemic:
FACT: Approximately 50,000 people die in the UK EVERY MONTH (according to ONS data)
FACT: This is the first time in history that our Nation, let alone the whole world has gone into such a lockdown based on an (alleged) pandemic
FACT: There has been no increase in the expected death rate in the UK (see also ONS data)
FACT: This is the first time in history that a ‘Death Clock Count’ has been publicised on public TV and in the media of all the ‘alleged’ deaths from this virus
FACT: People have been bombarded with pseudo-science about R-rates and scaremongering – the R-rate for COVID-19 is about the same, or slightly less than the Flu!
FACT: If you test more people, obviously the number of cases being recorded will increase (there’s not been much talk of percentages though!) You’d think more cases = more deaths, but that’s not the case!
FACT: Pubs were among the first to be forced to shut down – the first time in 300 years – with no scientific proof that it was even necessary
FACT: The Government has done far too good a job at terrifying the populace into believing we’re all going to die from this ‘new flu’, and they won’t admit they made a mistake and overreacted, because they’ve spent far too much tax-payer money on this fiasco, they have to keep up the farce
I could go on, but I think those that are reading this already know where I’m going and probably support my thoughts and feelings that this all has to STOP RIGHT NOW! There is absolutely NO SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE that the lockdown restrictions, social distancing, or wearing masks has any positive influence on reducing the mortality rate of this virus. In fact, more people are dying of other things (mental health issues, heart-related illness, cancers, etc.) than are dying from this coronavirus.
Don’t take my word for it, do your own research, it’s all out there. Go to the ONS (although it took me a long time to get a direct answer from them earlier this year!) the data is all there.
THE BOTTOM LINE: In my ‘opinion’ (and it’s just that, MY opinion) the Government overreacted, based on very limited information from a handful of scientists that had no idea what was going on (probably provoked by press releases from the privately funded WHO) and once they’d fallen down the ‘rabbit hole’ and started writing blank (tax-payer) cheques left and right to appease the lockdown, they have no choice but to keep spouting the same rubbish! Somebody needs to act like a real leader and publicly say they, “F*cked up!” I’m sure nobody will really care, we just want to get on with our lives (those of us that can recover them!) and try and rebuild ‘normal’.
Thank you for reading. If it hit a chord, please share. Please also consider supporting our happy little knees-up we’ve released to help those devastated in the pub trade by these ridiculous restrictions:
