Twelve months ago, the UK was a country where people were (mostly) left to get on with their lives, unless they had committed a crime. Now, the government is asking citizens to prove that they are not infected and to carry a licence that will allow them to participate in society.
Boris Johnson’s government wants every man, woman and child in the country to take two coronavirus tests a week, because he wants to locate the virus in asymptomatic people. There is zero evidence that asymptomatic people transmit covid-19 or any other virus.
Citizens who attempt to leave the country “without a valid reason” can expect to be detained and fined thousands of pounds. Church-goers can expect tooled-up police officers to break up their prayers and fine them for worshipping.
For over a year now, the government has dictated where we can and cannot go and who we can and cannot meet. Tens of thousands of seniors have been condemned to die miserable lonely deaths in care homes, wait for it, for their protection.
Children have been terrorised by “don’t kill granny” ad campaigns. As a result of this and being locked up and kept away from their friends for a year, psychologists are warning of a children’s “mental health tsunami.”
Business owners have been forced to shut their doors and to stand by, while the companies they built from scratch go bust. When some shop owners disobeyed, they were handcuffed, arrested and taken to their local police station to be fined.
The Coronavirus Act 2020, contains within it, provisions for Public Health Officers to enter people’s homes and transport them to a government facility, if they suspect that they are infected and not cooperating with stay at home orders.
The Orwellian act was recently renewed until October, despite the fact that hospitals were never overwhelmed and that overall, deaths for any reason are lower in 2021 (so far), than in the same period last year.
Secondary school children have been coerced into wearing facemasks during classes, despite two recent peer-reviewed studies that show many of the masks contain harmful chemicals, including formaldehyde. Children don’t contract covid-19 and they don’t pass it on.
Tens of thousands of scientists, many of them eminently more qualified than Whitty, Vallance and the rest of the SAGE rabble, have been barred from the national airwaves, because they profoundly disagree with lockdowns and mass vaccination programmes.
The media has become the propaganda wing of number 10 Downing Street.
Very soon, as I mentioned at the beginning of this piece, UK citizens will require a renewable licence to allow them to participate in society. The UK is a totalitarian state now. Boris Johnson went from promising us a bright and prosperous future outside the EU in 2019, to turning the UK into a police state in 2020.
But of course he couldn’t have done it if there was any political opposition to it. There has been none. The Labour Party, which laughably describes itself as a Socialist Party and the party of the working class, has backed the government every step of the way.
When Keir Starmer has criticised the government, it was to demand tougher and faster measures. “I’ll see your tyranny and raise it,” is Starmer’s stock response to anything proposed by Johnson.
Only non-violent mass civil-disobedience can save the UK now.
