Is Boris’s Lax Leadership Putting Us All in Danger ?
« on: March 14, 2020, 06:32:07 PM »
From elsewhere.

Despite the sudden announcement of 10 deaths in 24 hours in England, there's no information about the number of cases in the UK. My daughter's housemate came back from Spain with symptoms on Weds. Though he reported to 111, they refused to test and no one has traced contacts or taken any details.  He clearly has Covid 19 at this point.  But no-one knows or is interested.  The virus is being allowed to run unchecked and only deaths are recorded. A BBC news channel said there are only estimates but it's thought there are currently as many as 10,000 live cases of the virus in the UK. No-one can be sure. The government is not keeping proper statistics!!!!!! Everyone calling 111 is just told to self-isolate. My daughter and her other housemate are bound to catch this. It is unavoidable.  No instructions have been given that they should isolate too; no-one after a few calls to 111 even asked about the living situation of her infected housemate.There must be millions of people living in multiple occupation in this under-housed Country. And how can people claim sick pay without proof of infection, or because they are living under the same roof as an infected person, who they can't prove has got it and they don't know whether they have? This is nuts!  How can they reasonably ask their employer for time off either? My daughter is the Events Manager for one of the Country's major museums and art galleries working with a vast number of corporate and general visitors to this nationally famous facility on a daily basis. Her other flatmate is a local authority music therapist who works with young people with a variety of disabilities and mental health problems on a peripatetic basis - her case load must be what would be called vulnerable!  The infected housemate is the manager of a touring opera company. Most of his company must have become infected in Spain, surely? (Spain was locked down this afternoon following 1500 new cases in one day.  All incoming planes were turned back mid flight.)  Between them by daughter, her housemates and their fellow workers they could infect millions!!!!

Meanwhile, the Irish are trying to co-ordinate their response to the virus but the North has to follow Boris's half-cocked approach, while the South has closed schools and followed the rest of Europe.  It is clear to me that no-one is actually doing anything about this in the UK at all. Bozo is guilty, at the very least, of dereliction of duty. His approach is not scientific, it isn't even being scientifically recorded. He is insane  He has to be removed from office.  THIS CANNOT BE ALLOWED TO CARRY ON. Within a very short time this could develop into a massive and fatal tragedy. Millions will die.  Far from controlling some peak on a graph, or slowing it down, the government don't even know how many people are on the graph at all!  If this is an example of how we are being managed from the top down, what price the input of the rest of Bozo's incredibly lax and often cerebrally challenged cabinet members and their weird, bullied, anti-social staff? Why is nobody taking this under control?  Maybe we need to contact the WHO and ask them to send in a management team to take over?  This Tory government have completely lost the plot!

I agree we should have closed the borders to those coming from infected areas.

Sounds a bit like the TRUTH from Greta and her 11 years to die story.

FACTS: there are over 1billion people in China- it started there- millions didn't die!

I found this interesting piece...

“And just like that, the government controls all sporting events, concerts, jobs, colleges, medical facilities, whether or not you can leave your house, controls depleted resources such as toilet paper and food, controls all travel…. And you guys wonder why they develop and use viruses to scare the public. They now control you and everything about your life. See how easy it was? Mass panic, hysteria, complete control of, literally the world. Over a virus. One that has an extremely high survival rate. All freedom has been limited overnight. See how easy that was?”

the piece you quoted said millions will die.
“we have carried out a very serious investigation and there is no indication whatsoever Madeleine McCann's parents are linked to her disappearance” - Hans Christian Wolters, German Prosecutor..

“Conspiracy theories exhibit a strong obsession with detail, often taking the form of highlighting a tiny piece of evidence and blowing it up out of all proportion, buttressing their claims with a display of pseudo-scholarship.  When they examine the real evidence, conspiracy theorists do not accept that minor inconsistencies come from mistakes in reporting.” Sir Richard J Evans, author and historian

He’s beyond parody.

https://www.thenational.scot/news/18310479.boris-johnson-makes-last-gasp-joke-lack-ventilators-amid-pandemic/

BORIS Johnson left manufacturers unimpressed last night after making light of the lack of available ventilator equipment in the UK as the coronavirus spreads.

Ventilators are critical in the care of some people suffering coronavirus, and there is concern that the NHS will face a shortage of the life-saving equipment as need increases.

A recent report from the Imperial College Covid-19 response team also warned that, under the UK Government's current plan to curb the spread of the pandemic, the health system will be "overwhelmed many times over".


In a conference call with over 60 businesses last night, Johnson and Michael Gove asked manufacturers to step up to help deal with the shortage.

However, according to POLITICO, Johnson joked that the initiative to build more ventilators could be known as "Operation Last Gasp".

One participant speaking with POLITICO journalist Charlie Cooper said “He couldn’t help but act the clown, even though he was a on call with serious CEOs from goodness knows how many companies.”

55 people in the UK have died as a result of Covid-19 as of Tuesday morning.

Downing Street did not comment.

The government has just announced a massive bailout package for business and I for one am thankful for it.

The hysterical rant you quoted is blaming Boris personally for the potential death of millions, how could he be held responsible for deaths worldwide?!  Utterly absurd hyperbole, but typical lefty hysteria.

What about renters ?
What about people on zero hour contracts ?

France is halting all payments for gas, water etc etc...measures that would really help the lowest paid...even Trump is giving out money to those who really need it. What is Johnson doing ?

Isn’t the help you’re getting for your business from the government socialism in action ?
