It’s three months since Christmas.
Which means that we have been in this “Level 5 Lockdown” for three months. Naturally, because we have been under the severest of all levels the Virus must be just a distant memory? Well, no. It’s as lively as ever.
We aren’t at the levels at the start of the year but their precious numbers are still “stubbornly high”. Of course they are claiming that the lockdown is a roaring success and that the only reason the numbers are still high is because of evil selfish traitorous bastards who insist on flouting the law. It doesn’t seem to occur to them that the lockdown might not be the success they think it is. So they are threatening to leave us at Level 5 for another while [what was the definition of insanity again?].
What about the vaccinations, I hear the people cry? Apparently vaccinating people will make no difference. Get your jab and you’ll still have to obey all orders. The only difference as far as I can ascertain is that people who have had the jab will be able to visit old folks in the Old Folks’ Homes who have also had the jab. That’s a great incentive?
They love their figures. These figures are trotted out every night as if they are supposed to mean something. We get all the current figures, the total figures, all the percentages, all the averages and every other figure they can squeeze out of their fucking spreadsheets. Lately they have started giving us figures and percentages on the state of the vaccination. But there is one figure they never mention – what is the vaccination uptake? Or to put it another way, how many are declining to avail of their little cocktails?
There was a bit of a fuss a little while back when a doctor came on radio to say that he wouldn’t be advising people to get the jab simply because he didn’t trust it and wouldn’t have it himself. That sounded fair enough. He has since been suspended, presumably for heresy. How dare he make a professional judgement.
I did a bit of research to try to discover the level of refusal but it is not easy. I did find one mention of a survey that placed refusals at 6%. They say “just 6%” to try to minimise it while glossing over the fact that only 77% say they are willing to be pricked. I must say I am surprised at these figures considering the relentless bombardment of propaganda for the last year so there is hope that some people are thinking for themselves.
So it looks like they are determined to keep us under their jackboots. Getting vaccinated won’t make any difference and lockdowns will continue even though they’re not working. And there are all these new “deadly” variants cropping up requiring different vaccines and even harsher measures.
It looks like Asteroid 2001 FO32 missed us last weekend?
What a crying shame!
