Johnson’s partying demonstrates that the government’s Covid information can’t be trusted. The very people telling us it was too dangerous to meet up were in fact happy to meet up.

This suggests that the fear they were instilling in people around the country was not something they felt themselves.

These were the people at the top of government, with easy access to the actual data about covid. They were not relying on what the government said, but were instead the people deciding what the government said.

They were pushing a message of fear, yet if they were truly frightened they would have rushed home after having to spend the day at Number Ten. Instead they drank wine and munched crisps together. These are not the actions of people frightened they may catch a virus that may kill them.

Any trust in the government to tell the truth has disintegrated. We are left bereft of guidance, unable to trust governmental advice.

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.

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.’

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.

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.

Diary of an Unexpected Dissident – from ‘three weeks to flatten the curve’ to you will be sacked from your job for not having a vaccine injection #novaccinepassports

The world has changed so much that to live a normal life is to be seen as a dissident

Wed 14th July

The pressure is ramping up. Yesterday, with most of the population unaware, MPs voted in favour of mandating vaccines for carers. There we have it, the Rubicon has been crossed. People will lose their jobs. People will be thrown into poverty. People will be unable to visit relatives.

This normalises discrimination. If the government are doing it then I can do it, some people think. Already I know of someone organising a party for friends, and only allowing people who have been vaccinated to attend. And they think they are the good guys.

We are living through an insane tyranny. A divisive, hypocritical tyranny where MPs don’t have to wear masks, but other people in the House of Commons do. Where G7 leaders don’t have to wear masks, Social distance or quarantine, but the people serving them do.

We have gone from ‘three weeks to flatten the curve’ to you will be sacked from your job for not having a vaccine injection. This is not the policy of a mature Western democracy that has championed freedom around the world.

What are our politicians thinking? Is there some extra information that we are not being told that makes this all make sense? How do you make sense of this destruction of people’s lives?

Diary of an Unexpected Dissident – vaccine passports and our loss of freedoms

Tues July 13rd 2021

The world has changed so much that to live a normal life is to be seen as a dissident

Things are closing in on those of us who love freedom. We believed we lived in a country that held freedom as one of the highest needs of man, a country that went to war to battle totalitarians. But now that totalitarianism has appeared at home.

After months of telling us that there would be no vaccine passports the latest news is that there will be vaccine passports. This is outrageous, because of the governmental lying, but also of course the fundamental incompatibility between vaccine passports and a western democracy.

France has already announced vaccine passports will be necessary to visit cafes. Cafes! A western government is controlling where its citizens can go. And the British government is heading down the same path. Currently it is saying it will apply to big events. Can I book a ticket for a ‘big event’ in a few weeks, or will I arrive and have to divulge my medical records and find myself shut out?

We are no longer heading to a communist-inspired totalitarian dystopia, we are living it. Historians will wonder how it was ever allowed to happen.

How can we resist the encroaching madness?

Anyone returning to UK after next Wednesday ‘has to quarantine forever’

Life can return to normal with never-ending quarantine

Leaked government guidelines show that they are about to introduce a ‘Forever Quarantine’. Speaking to the press the minister for Lying to the Public, Cathy Pollert admitted that this was the case.

‘We are proud to annouce this world-beating new policy that will knock Covid on the head and make sure that the UK is once again able to welcome people from around the world to our shores – as long as they don;t mind quarantining forever. But that is a small requirement compared with killing your granny, which might happen if they ever went outside again.

Human rights?

When questioned about the human rights aspects of this law, Pollert sniggered and said ‘Our lawyers are better funded than anyone else’s. And we make the laws. The only possible way to escape Forever Quarantine will be a big donation to a political party of our choice.’
