NHS staff to be sacked for not taking vaccines. More nonsensical government policy examined by The Freedom Show

The Freedom Show – libertarian-leaning animated discussion show about the madness of life all around.

Today we are discussing the government mandating vaccines for NHS health staff. They will be sacked in April next year if they haven’t had a vaccine, which is ludicrous, because what exactly changes next year in April? How will the NHS cope with even fewer staff? We are constantly told it is under pressure already. If the government sacks these people then it can never again complain that the NHS is overwhelmed.

Democracy died in Wales last night

Last night the Welsh parliament voted to go full totalitarian by implementing vaccine passports. These usher in a Chinese Communist Party style control of the population that should never be seen in a Western democracy. People in Wales will not be able to attend certain events unless their vaccine passport has the right details. For now the government is locking people out of big events, but the system will be in place to micromanage where everyone is allowed to go on a daily basis.

That is bad enough, but the way it happened is even worse. Owing to technological difficulties one member was unable to vote. The Parliament made no allowance for this. The motion carried by ONE vote. ie- this terrible policy was not even the will of the parliament.

This policy would have been outrageous if it had passed fairly, but to be implemented like this shows that the UK is descending into banana republic territory.

Vaccine passports are a sign of governmental overreach and a fundamental misunderstanding of a government’s role in a Western democracy. This vote must be reversed, and nothing like it must ever be implemented in any of the constituent parts of the UK.

Italy: VAX pass or die: How to foment civil unrest

Italy slips further down the authoritarian path by stopping unvaccinated from working

Italy is acting as the canary in the coalmine, showing us the poison that is moving our way in the rest of the West.

Reports say that Italy is going to insist that workers have the vaccine passport, or they will not be allowed to work. Which of course means that they will not be paid. And if workers are not paid, then they very soon will not be able to eat.

How was this ever deemed a good idea? Let us threaten the populace with starvation, that’ll make them get vaccinated. Except that is not how people work. When faced with a totalitarian, illogical, coercive government policy people do not give up. They ask questions, like if this vaccine is so great, why are they using such outrageous, undemocratic means to get us to take it?

Will this really happen? It seems so extreme that it is hard to see how it can. But maybe that is out-school thinking. A lot of extreme things have happened (house arrest for a year, anyone?) If people are put in a position where they cannot work and cannot eat, the government knows that they will protest.

If this goes ahead then the government will be provoking unrest. When people can’t feed their families they become desperate. To play with danger in this way shows that the government is set on demonising one section of society.

‘But they can just get vaccinated,’ people say in the government’s defence. But why would something as extreme as removing someone’s livelihood be done in order to make them take a vaccine? When such extreme measures are being used to achieve something, people are entitled to ask, what is going on before succumbing. Why would a government enact a no-work policy that could kill people through starvation to protect them from a virus? The solution is worse than the disease.

Worse still, people can be fined for working without the vaccine passport. So you cannot earn any money, and any money you do have is taken away in fines.

It is the most totalitarian policy imaginable, save maybe for locking people in their houses for a year. It is terrible to see what is happening in Italy. We have grown up believing that our Western governments have our best interest at heart. Here it is clear that that is not always the case. If the aim is truly to get people vaccinated, for their own good, this is not the way to go about it and not the way to engender confidence in their methods. We need governments around the world, but especially at the moment in Italy, to rethink this authoritarian bent they have all taken.

Jabber dabber doo! Government says kids are old enough to make their own decisions on vaccines

Where to start with the health secretary’s recent interview in which he says that a child’s will can override that of their parent when it comes to vaccination?

This is a government minister – a Tory minister – trashing in one sentence the centuries-old relationship between parents and their children.

Flying in the face of all previous parent-child relationships around the world, kids are suddenly to make their own decisions about their medical health.

What lunacy is this? A child is not equipped to make these decisions. Because they are – a child. Parents are supposed to make important decisions for them.

Whichever side of the vaccine debate you are on, this governmental announcement has to outrage you. It has to make you stick up a hand and say, ‘Excuse me, this is not acceptable behaviour for a government. Parents make decisions for their kids, not kids themselves.’ Otherwise, kids will suddenly be having ice cream for dinner and staying up until midnight. Every parent knows kids don’t know what is best for them.

Will this kid-centric decision making work both ways? When the parents do want the child to have the vaccination and the child doesn’t want it? Will the kid’s will be relevant then, Health Secretary?

Either way, it would be madness to allow a kid to decide, but if this allows children to overrule parents in one direction only, it makes it clear that this is just another way to get more children injected. They, after all, will suffer more from peer pressure. It is not fair to leave this decision for kids. Above all, they will not fully understand their own medical history.

This should not be allowed to happen in England.

The Freedom Trumpet: ‘People who refuse to play Russian Roulette are selfish,’ claims government minister

‘They are not thinking of the people who will be saved by them firing a bullet into their head’

Government minister Harry Lime has been supported by colleagues after his claim that people who refuse to play Russian Roulette are selfish.

 

Chucked out of society

 

‘If anything, Harry didn’t go far enough,’ Sarah Bing, minister for Billionaires said. ‘If people are not willing to play Russian Roulette then they have proved themselves to be so selfish they should be banned from football matches and nightclubs. No, they should be chucked out of society. I shouldn’t announce this yet, but we are looking to rent a reservation in Rhodesia where they could all live far from our law abiding citizens who are happy to play Russian Roulette whenever the government asks.’

 

Only last week 

 

When asked if she enjoyed a good game of Russian Roulette she showed a picture of her playing the game last weekend, although critics say that the revolver was a toy and the bullets were made of cheese.

People with concerns about the vaccine are not ‘selfish’: Unacceptable in a democracy – Government minister’s language around vaccines deliberately creates an enemy

The language that the government is using to describe people who are unsure about taking the vaccine has been raised a notch today, with Michael Gove calling them ‘selfish’.

He has used these words deliberately, knowing that they will help engender an atmosphere where the unvaccinated are looked down on and regarded as different. This sort of differentiation never ends well. A government minister uses words. Others use fists.

Are people who are refusing the vaccine selfish? No. There is no way that you can define someone as selfish for being concerned about a vaccine that (a) has side effects that are well documented (b) is still in a trial phase and (c) is for a disease that most people are not at any danger of dying from.

It is not a morally acceptable for person A to have a medical intervention with possible side effects in order to protect person B. That is not how a free society works. To suggest they should accept a vaccine with any risk at all is outrageous.

This is not the way we behave in the UK. We do not force someone to have an injection for anything for the benefit of other people. Once this happens we have crossed a line. And saying that you don’t have to have it, you just can’t go to football, study, etc, etc without it, is the same as forcing it. 

We are truly living through terrible times.

Diary of an Unexpected Dissident – first pub announces it will discriminate against the unvaccinated

Thurs 15 July

A pub in Norwich is in the news as the first pub to enforce vaccine passports. No entry for the unvaccinated. So it’s started and it feels sickening. Discrimination, which is so frowned upon if done by other criteria is being enthusiastically embraced. Do these people not see where this leads? Do they not see the lack of logic in admitting vaccinated people who still catch and spread the virus? The division has begun and the government is encouraging it. Rather than mandate it at the moment it praises companies that introduce it and makes them feel virtuous. The government encourages people to discriminate. What insanity we have reached.

Three weeks to flatten the curve to you can’t go to a pub without showing your papers. In less than 18 months.

More Covid untruths: Five days quarantine? In practice you’re likely to suffer at least six

So much of the Covid information we are given makes little sense or is downright untrue. To that list we can add the UK’s five day quarantine requirement. It is billed as five days. In fact it is likely to be at least six.

Why is this?

The system works thus: on the fifth day in prison, sorry, quarantine, you take a test. That test then has to be delivered to a lab. Your quarantine cannot end until you get the result of that test.

The time of your result depends firstly on delivery times, but even when the processing company receives your test in their lab, the expected time to get a result also depends on the speed of their processing. This is estimated at 12-24 hours. So your ability to escape quarantine in the claimed five days depends on them delivering it to their lab immediately and the result not taking much longer than their shortest estimate.

In a case brought to our attention, the test didn’t arrive at the lab until the next morning. So the 12-24 hour wait for the result only starts on day six.

This is baked into the system. Even escaping quarantine after six days depends on the testing company sticking to their timescales.

To quarantine for only five days depends on the testing company working faster than their own timetables suggest they will. It is unfair and misleading when a five day quarantine is almost impossible to achieve.

Not least of course because the whole idea is ludicrous. If the disease is so dangerous you have to be locked up for five days to make sure you haven’t got it, why is it OK to travel from the airport on public transport to the place you are quarantining?

Very few of the Covid laws bear scrutiny. But the five day quarantine claim is only achievable under perfect conditions.

Madnesses in the Covid-19 response – an ongoing list – please add ones we have missed below

The response to Covid-19 has been riddled with rules and laws that make no sense with the information that we have been given. Living in a country where the government introduces such incomprehensible rules is very difficult. Why are there so many anomalies and contradictions?

Here are a few of the UK rules that are impossible to understand

When you arrive back from travelling you have to quarantine for five or ten days and take tests…but you are allowed to travel on public transport from the airport and walk to/from and queue in post offices to send off your tests. 

You cannot sing in a church – even though many are huge and have tiny congregations…but you can sing at football matches.

School sports days – held outside – are cancelled…but football matches are allowed.

Weddings were allowed 30 people whilst funerals were only allowed 15 people, in the same church. Two services, different limits! And it gets madder…weekly services in the same church were allowed whatever capacity was deemed suitable with social distancing.

Football VIPs are allowed to come into the country without quarantining.

G7 leaders were allowed to skip quarantine and ignore social distancing. They didn’t have to wear masks whilst those serving them did.

Masks were derided at the start of the pandemic by the government. We were told that they were no use and even counter-productive…then, when the peak of the pandemic had passed, they were mandated.

Last year we could travel abroad between the lockdowns…this year, with vaccines, we cannot.

Tests for everyday use are handed out by the NHS for free…tests for travel cost £100+ each.

In England you can end the quarantine after five days…in Wales you have to quarantine for 10 days.

We were told they would not introduce vaccine passports…Gove went to Israel to study their introduction of vaccine passports…we were again told they would not introduce vaccine passports…now we hear pubs will need vaccine passports.

We were told that if you leave the house and meet up in groups you will spread the virus…but BLM met up in groups and not only were they not criticised, they were praised.

You could go for a walk, but not sit on a bench.

Taking a coffee with you on your walk meant the authorities could claim you were not going for a walk but were having a picnic.

Vaccine passports are giving people the freedom to meet-up and travel…but they do not stop you transmitting the virus or catching it.

The insanity of all this is hard to credit.

 

We have missed lots of contradictions and madnesses in the rules…please add them below or on Twitter and we will add them to the list.

 

Whistleblower: UK Covid policy decided ‘by rolling dice in No.10’

Whistleblower claims policy decisions made by late night dice rolls

Mr Hxncxck, who wishes to remain anonymous but claims he holds ‘a high level role in the government’ has admitted that Covid policy has ‘mainly been decided by rolling dice’.

‘It started when we couldn’t decide how long to lock down for. The PM said, ‘I’ll fetch my lucky dice,’ and he rolled a three. So we locked down for three weeks.’

‘Soon we were putting all our decisions to the dice. We even decided how many Nightingale hospitals to open by rolling dice. I actually said we shouldn’t use dice to decide how much PPE to order, but I was overruled by the PM.

‘We has no idea how long was appropriate for quarantine, so we rolled two dice and came up with two fives. So we said you had to quarantine for ten days, but could take a test after five. It was a good compromise that took both dice into account.’

These revelations have been met by widespread head-nodding. Phrases such as ‘At last the illogical government response to Covid makes sense’ have been heard around the UK.
