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.

Flu deaths to rise: here come the terrible side effects of the terrible lockdown diktats

Figures quoted in the media are invariably inaccurate, so when the news announces that deaths from flu ‘could hit 60,000’ this winter it is vital to take the actual number with the usual pinch of salt. But the fact that flu deaths are going to go up, even if not to the levels claimed, is alarming.

The reasons given for this increase in deaths? Lockdown and social distancing.

When lockdown was instigated there was no cost-benefit analysis done at all. If there had been then this is exactly the sort of thing that would have been examined. Lockdown has caused a huge backlog in operations and caused many people to be given much worse diagnoses than if they had been able to see a doctor earlier.

The flu jab that is given every year will be less efficacious, again because lockdown meant that there wasn’t enough flu going around for scientists to create the best possible injection.

This could come under the heading ‘Huge and Unexpected Side-effects of Lockdown’, but the side effects should have been researched and cannot be dismissed as unexpected. It was obvious that locking people in their houses would have a raft of terrible effects, effects that are just beginning to appear.

We won’t get apologies for the economy-destroying, life-sapping, life-taking lockdowns of the last two years, but we must have an acknowledgement of their damage and an undertaking: Lockdown must never be inflicted on the population again.

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.

Why is the Prime Minister posting deeply peculiar Build Back Better videos of him drinking beer and buttering toast?

The last few days have seen some remarkable videos being posted online. At first I thought they were spoofs or deep fakes, but they are directly from the Prime Minister’s Twitter account so it must be assumed that they are real. They really are most peculiar. In them the Prime Minister butters some bread, drinks some beer or eats some fish and chips, then says Build Back Butter, Build Back Bitter or Build Back Batter.

They are making fun of the phrase Build Back Better, which is being parroted by leaders around the world. Which in itself is very troubling. It used to be the case, up until circa 18 months ago, that leaders liked to be original. That they wouldn’t spout words or phrases that had already been used by someone else. But recently many of the leaders of countries around the world have been using this phrase Build Back Better.

It’s a jarring phrase because it’s not quite proper English. No Englishman would ever say build back, he would use the word rebuild. So it’s an imported phrase, something proved clearly when Johnson uses it, as he has a perfectly cromulent vocabulary that doesn’t normally stoop to such pidgin vulgarities.

Why this phrase is being repeated around the world is a question that remains unanswered. But why – when people are already asking, what does this mean, we didn’t elect you to do anything remotely to do with building anything back better – would the Prime Minister make a series of videos mocking the phrase?

It’s weird enough that the PM is putting out the sort of videos that a comedian would make to entertain his Twitter followers. It is peculiar that they refer to a phrase that is already raising hackles and appears to refer to some sort of totalitarian control under the guise of sustainability. The whole thing is incomprehensible. It is unbelievable that the PM’s office is literally posting comedy videos, so unless they are a call for help, they must have some deeper meaning. 

What is it?

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.

Breaking news: Unvaccinated to be banned from breathing when outside #Satire

‘This is not a ban on the unvaccinated going outside. They just need to take a very deep breath at the start of their journey.’

Under new plans announced today the unvaccinated will be banned from breathing whilst outside.

Kept apart

‘Even though the vaccine works really well, the unvaccinated need to be kept apart from the vaccinated,’ said Guy Hands, minister for Dinghy Immigration. ‘Under this new scheme, the unvaccinated are not being discriminated against, they just need to make sure they take a big breath before they set off.’

Foreign holidays?

When asked how the unvaccinated would be able to go on holiday he said, ‘I should imagine that foreign holidays will be tricky, but really it depends on the size of their lungs. With a bit of practice they should be able to get to France before they have to breathe again.’

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- Johnson makes himself unelectable and mandates vaccine passports in nightclubs

So it’s happened. The reassurances have proved to be lies and the government is introducing vaccine passports for nightclubs and large events.

Let’s just remember that we are talking about Britain, mother of the free. The country that has gone to war for democracy because it is so important and spreads freedom around the world. And here, in England, the government is saying that to live a normal life you have to sign up for government tracking.

This totalitarianism has been announced on the so-called Freedom Day, which must make even the most loyal government supporter wonder how exactly Johnson is defining freedom. At the moment is it only for nightclubs and large events, but given we were promised there would be no passports at all, who knows where it will end?

If you want to look at this policy under its own medical logic it makes no sense. Nightclubs can only let in vaccinated people, yet we know that the vaccine doesn’t stop people spreading the virus.

But more importantly, this ushers in a system which lets the government control where you go and let’s the government know where you are.

It’s temporary…yes, of course. Just like income tax was temporary.

We need to make it clear to the government that this sort of totalitarianism is not acceptable in Britain. It is an outrage of gargantuan proportions to implement any policy that forces citizens to show ‘papers’ to live a normal life.

How does a conservative government even begin to think this is a sensible idea? How can they not see the historical parallels and the dangerous direction this takes the country?

Clearly they are starting with the young, hoping to coerce them into a vaccine that is not without risks for them so that they can go clubbing.

This is clearly an outrageous thing for a government to do. Young people are not the at-risk group for Covid. If they take vaccines they don’t need, some will have bad reactions.

Don’t think that it doesn’t affect you because you don’t go clubbing. Once the vax passport is normalised it will be extended. Do you really think they have gone to this trouble for just nightclubs?

You might think that the government would never do anything that would harm its citizens. It must be doing the right thing. But remember, they have just locked us up for a year without any sort of cost benefit analysis of the policy.

What is their end game? They are implementing a policy that will give them knowledge of where everyone is and will allow them to block people from going to certain places. The control that this policy gives the government is enormous and never ending.

They would never use a vaccine passport for bad, people say. Well, even if you trust this government, and there are many reasons why you shouldn’t, how do we know what a future government might do? And the signs from this government are that they wouldn’t be averse to using such a system.

This is a terrible moment in the history of Great Britain. The French have recently endured similar pronouncements and it appears the government there has backtracked. Let us make sure the government here also has to apologise for even considering this shocking totalitarian attack on its citizens.
