Events of the last six months have made me question whether political leanings are of any relevance anymore
Why are they destroying the economy for a low mortality illness that seems akin to flu? Then came the aggressive communications campaign perpetuated by the government; the rhetoric, the imagery, it all appeared to be too engineered.
When you read about the Spanish flu outbreak of the early twentieth century, also classed as a ‘Pandemic’ it didn’t seem remotely on a par.
In the 22nd May issue of MoneyWeek, I read an extract published in The Spectator (by Lionel Shriver) who claimed ‘After all, Covid-19’s roughly 290,000 deaths “wouldn’t raise a blip on a graph of worldwide mortality.”
(There were 58 million global deaths in 2019) and it became clear to me that the seemingly draconian measures being introduced by our government were not proportionate to the supposed risk.
This was a turning point for me, and from there on in, I have spent hours each day researching as much as I can about the past, present, and future aims of our national and global leaders.
I do not buy into the overall Covid-19 narrative perpetuated by the government. Say I did think Covid19 was a real and true threat to my friends and family, and I was considering wearing a mask I would still need to take into account the constantly changing opinions on their effectiveness. Both the WHO and our chief medical officer, and countless other ‘minds’ within the government and healthcare system were claiming they’re not effective or necessary. The timing doesn’t make sense to me.
Perhaps in March, when I had done less research, and there were these ‘large’ numbers released of people dying ‘solely’ of Coronavirus, I could have bought into it.
It’s the repeated ‘flip-flopping’ and confusing guidelines that make it hard to trust the government and their motives.
I avoid wearing a mask at all costs. I tested one at my health centre a short while back, and I struggled to breathe while wearing it. I work hard to remain fit and healthy, and the data shows that in my age group, you are more likely to die in a car accident then you are of Covid-19.
We should not have masks forced upon us, they aren’t natural and by all accounts, they aren’t effective. Some of the guidelines don’t make any sense to me: If you’re working in a supermarket, you won’t have to wear a mask, but your customers do. If you then finish your shift and go in to buy some food for the evening, you are expected to put it on. Surely if the risk to life was as ferocious as is being reported, all of us would need masks, not just some, and why would it differ in pubs, etc. And why are there exemptions? Does the virus not like children, the disabled, or those with breathing conditions? Think about it!
